    Dirty dinner plates from previous diners went stack up in a plastic bin right behind our table on the outside deck. Not a good thing to do in such a nice restaurant.

    Booked a special evening for my birthday. Spoke to the manager about vegetarian options for my significant other, that turned out pretty good. However we both ordered appetizers, hers came, mine never did. Turns out the waiter never ordered it. She was done with hers long before he ever realized it. A restaurant of this caliber should never make that mistake. Ruined my birthday. Food was great but service was terrible.

    This is a fantastic restaurant that would do well in any location. The staff is highly professional and a direct reflection of the leadership provided by their executive chef and management team. It is no surprise to see the Henderson Beach Resort ranked #1 in the state of Florida. Thank you to Tyler, Brad, and the entire team for a truly enjoyable evening!! We will see you again soon.

    I stayed a week in Destin. Although I stayed at a separate condo down the street along scenic highway 98 I ate here 4 times…it was that good! Every server I had was fantastic…special recognition to Jennifer! HIGHLY recommend the spicy pineapple margarita (MUST!), flo country grouper with shrimp/andouille risotto, wedge salad AND the beignets!!! I can’t wait to come back to Destin and eat here.

    The lighting was too harsh. It did not appear that management was doing anything to improve the lighting after guests complained. We normally have very good experiences at this restaurant, however this dining experience was not good.

    Understandably a nice dining option for the snowbirds and locals, however, bigger portion sizes for both starter and desserts would be preferred. A few different options as the menu was quite limited. Overall fair experience and may return if in the area in the future.

    Steaks very undercooked. I had the $50 "special" that was told to me as "snapper with lobster tail." The fish was tough and obviously not fresh, and the "lobster tail," turned out to be three small pieces of also not fresh lobster. And the meals were served luke warm at best. Have to say this was the least satisfied I have been for spending $270 for dinner probably ever.

    Server was friendly. Food was delicious. My husband did not like the tequila sunset drink - tasted like medicine. He switched to wine! I enjoyed my perfect vodka martini. Pork belly appetizer was very good. I enjoyed my shrimp n grits. Overall a very enjoyable meal. This was our first time at this hotel and restaurant.

    We wanted a non touristy restaurant and decided on Primrose based on reviews. We were not disappointed at all. It was difficult to find the restaurant because we didn’t read it was inside The Henderson. The Henderson does not look like a hotel, more like a beautiful condo complex. We enjoyed wonderful house made biscuits while waiting for our appetizer. Almost had a “pie crust with cheese” vibe. Delicious! Anyway, we ordered sushi (2 rolls) as an appetizer. Boy, we had no idea. The portion size was enough for us to have dinner. We had ordered the wrong wine because we had planned on splitting a large steak there. No worries! Wine goes with everything. We had the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. I thought it was a bar of chocolate. It was so rich and full of texture, the fruit and cream put it over the top.

    We found Primrose to be a lovely restaurant, great ambiance but as usual in a beach area, treated a bit to casually,.(ie. blue jeans) We ordered drinks and oysters to start, but were rushed to finish putting in our order. I dislike having food pushed on me and that is what happened. We ordered sushi to come after we finished the oysters, which it did, but before we managed to get a piece in our mouth, our main course arrived ( before our salad). We ended up with a table full of food. It was off putting. Now on to the food itself, the caesar salad tasted like romaine with bottled dressing and parm on top. Oysters were fabulous. Ribeye was perfection and I am not typically a fan of ribeye! The sushi was dry and cut HUGE! And not to forget, the bread rolls are delicious. Would I return...yes, but I would only order when ready to be served that course. And I would definitely find somewhere else for sushi.

    This is a very upscale place. Very nice. My wife had the Corvina and I had the Prime Beef. Delicious. My only complaint is that we went the weekend prior to Valentine's Day and they had two menus - their regular menu and a Valentine's Day menu (both very different) and you had to choose from one or the other. If one person wanted the regular menu and one wanted the Valentine's Day menu, you could not do that.

    Phenomenal food and service for our anniversary dinner. Explored the grounds after dinner and even sat by the fire pit. Will come back in warmer months to check out the rooftop bar. The Henderson takes care to think of every little detail and it definitely shows. Highly recommend for a special evening.

    Delicious food served promptly and by a very nice server. Tables distanced safely from each other and ours was at the window so a pleasant view. We have been there before and will definitely return. Always complementary valet parking was appreciated since it was cold and windy. Glad to be a part of the Locals discount program.

    The atmosphere was quant and romantic. I had the blackened grouper and my husband tried the fried chicken. My meal was fantastic but a bit overpriced likewise for my husband. The chicken was ok, not the best we've had by all means. The collard greens were full of steams and had a strong vinegar taste. All in all, we will probably try it again in the future but we won't rush to come back. Our server was amazing!

    What a beautiful property, dining facility. Happy to have had the experience! Like many places in these "Covid/hard to find help times", service was slow...and pretty spotty . Started with crispy cauliflower -- my husband could not get enough of it, so flavorful and crunchy, which is my preferred method for not mushy veggies! the steak was very undercooked to my husbands order...I was almost finished (and sharing with him!) with my pasta by the time his steak came back...and we had to leave so had it packed to go. It was buttery, flavorful eaten later. No desserts, double cocktails and house wine. Enjoyable, we will go back
