Primehouse was awful!

mark r | Feb 4, 2008 08:31 AM

let me start out by saying i am usually a fan of steve hanson. ocean grill is one of my neighborhood spots and i find all of his places to be pretty good (not great).

But wow, was i dissapointed in primehouse. my major complaints were: food, service and decor...

Food - i went lump crabmeat and Sirloin medium rare. typical steakhouse fare. crab was rubbery and had little taste. Steak was small. i mean really small. good char, but oversalted.

Service was awful which was most surprising because br guests usually train their people well. waiter took forever to bring drinks and take order. his biggest error was 3 of the guests were served and the other 3 were waiting a good 5-7 mts for their meal to come. and he just stood there. cleaned up the tables a bit. when i told him we are still waiting for the other 3 meals, he said it would be out any minute. he should of went in the kitchen himself and brought the dishes out. it was absurd. i even politely mentioned to a manager that our service was awful and even then it didnt improve much.

decor - too much black marble and mirrors. looked like a cheesy 80's vegas restaurant.

i will never go back
