Opened in the summer of 2016 Prime – An American Kitchen and Bar is almost a mirror image of it’s sister restaurant that resides across the Long Island Sound, Prime – An American Kitchen and Bar in Huntington, New York. The latest trends in cuisine and design come together at Prime to present the most insatiable and fashionable of diners with a first choice-dining destination whatever their mood. Under one roof, diverse menus combine classic favorites with modern twists to be savored in surroundings or equally balanced contrasts with a striking décor.

We boast of a 750 label wine list with varietals, vintages and vineyards from all over the world.

In the warmer seasons enjoy one of our signature cocktails outside at our Cabana Bar, while overlooking the docks and mouth of the Rippowam River as it flows into the Long Island Sound.

Lentil soup and bread was delicious, nice fish. Surprised that my husband’s filet was not medium pink as he requested from a steakhouse, overdone and not juicy

We were there to celebrate a birthday. When the staff heard, they were so kind. They gave us a drink, dessert and a gift card to celebrate the occasion. The food was great, service was great. Will definitely return.

I'm sorely disappointed with our experience at Prime. We ordered a dozen oysters. We reported to the waiter that one of them had gone bad and we were afraid we'd get sick. One only had to sniff the offending shell to know that it had gone bad. The odor turned our stomachs. The rest of the meal was fine and they comped 1 dessert. They should have taken the oysters off the bill and given the four of us dessert on the house. I didn't make a big deal of it because it was a birthday celebration and didn't want to taint the celebration. Prime is a fine restaurant, they should have known the proper way to treat customers after serving bad seafood.

Prime is a wonderful restaurant - very open and airy unlike most steak restaurants. I had the restaurant week special and it did not disappoint. We will be back when the weather warms-up to sit by the water.

Tried Prime for Restaurant Week at Harbor Point. Service was excellent, David is a true professional! Nice food choices for this event. My husband loved the wagyu beef and lobster Japanese cowboy roll and the seared scallops were perfectly cooked. Desserts were delicious- a chocolate flourless cake and amaretto creme caramel with caramelized pineapple was amazing. Definitely a special event place. Truly delicious

This visit was for Harbor Point restaurant week. Prime offered a wonderful fixed menu. We had the lobster bisque & the gnocchi, then the ny strip & added the poached lobster tail...which was fabulous!! We finished with the chocolate tart. We had a beautiful table by the window & the service was wonderful!

I was really excited to take my family here for restaurant week. Although the food was amazing, the server really didn’t know how the menu worked. Don’t get me wrong, he was VERY nice but we were given false information on the three course menu. I later reached out to a manager and he was quite aggressive and in my opinion didn’t make me feel valued.

I had been to Prime a couple of times and loved it every time ! I was excited to have my Family try it and boy did they love it, too ! Nothing like having a dozen little neck clams in the dead of winter and have them taste so fresh as the Summertime ! I had the Beef Wellington, which was a great because you almost NEVER see it on a muni! My brother had the Delmonico steak and raved about it! His wife had the Halibut and was thrilled with it!My Grandsons had the Tagliatelle loaded with shellfish! The side dishes ( Seared Broccoli , Mushrooms and Roasted Brussel Sprouts) were ample for the table to share and so delicious ! To finish, we shared the biggest piece of Junior’s ( decadent) Chocolate Cake! The staff were so courteous and friendly!

Our first time dining here was very disappointing , we were happy that the owner reached out to us asking that we give them another try. He did the right thing and we were happy we tried them again. The service was great and food was very good. Would happily return and we are happy that managers and owners read the reviews and want to make things right, that shows they care about the success of their restaurant as well as their diners! Not many respond. Thanks for that!

Friday night and busy and noisy at the popular bar with noise spreading to dining area. It improved after a while - we asked to lower the music volume.
Food is delicious and service great but it’s an expensive dinner out.

Ambiance and service was very good, as it always is. The food was disappointing. Both the sides and the entree catch of the day (halibut) we’re very salty and my wife’s salmon was nearly raw. This was especially disappointing given $50+ price for the fish. Not our best experience at this restaurant. The quality of the food was not up to usual standards and the price was very high!

Friday night dinner. Extremely loud and noisy. We eat here quite a bit because we love the steaks but tonight it was off. Too loud and mixed service (no bread, oysters came out immediately, cocktails were sub par - old fashioned and a mojito which were WAY off). On the plus side, the steaks have always been excellent. Love the wine selection as well.

Went for New Years Eve! The food was OUTSTANDING as it usually is but wan't ready for the loud party ambiance. Wasn't able to have a conversation without screaming across the table. It was not the soothing environment that is there the rest of the year. Although there were many enjoying themselves, I would not return New Years Eve. The Sunday Brunch is always wonderful!

Greeting and service were excellent throughout the experience. Restaurant beautifully decorated and lit for New Year’s Eve. We purposely went for an earlier dinner 7pm reservation. Our waiter was wonderfully attentive. Menu choices plentiful we ordered the beef Wellington as well as the seared duck breast. Both prepared as requested and on point. Excellent flavor and balance with wonderful sides. Overall an excellent experience.
