Lovely atmosphere. Food never disappoint. Table a bit close together as could hear everything next door were saying. That was more the people than the restaurant though. Will always go again.

Enjoyed our recent visit to Prime St Albans, a get together with some friends. Seated in a booth for 4 which was lovely to be able to chat. Cocktails are great. This is a steak house, the hardest thing is choosing which steak to eat, the easiest thing is eating it. All our steaks were cooked to perfection, accompanying sauces are delicious. It really does just melt in the mouth. Well worth a visit

A really good evening with friends. The pre dinner drinks were served promptly and with a smile. The menu is varied and interesting. I had the salmon but have had the bone in rib eye before - both perfectly cooked and delicious. Great that you can order sides of fresh vegetable. Really good service and nice buzzy but not over loud atmosphere.

As a returning customer, found the food still great, service very attentive and un-intrusive. Not the cheapest option, but excellent quality

Service was faultless.

Food was average - we ordered from the lunch menu. Starters were bland and the mains dry. Steaks were chewy and tough, and the chicken overcooked and dry.

I do feel this place is overrated and you are paying for the surroundings.

Also, there really is no need for a "discretionary" service charge; why do restaurants do this? Do we not have the choice to tip as we please anymore? The more you spend, the more they charge. Hmmmmm

This was our second visit and we were very impressed.
For starters we had the scallops and the breaded Brie, both of which were lovely. The steaks are amazing and melt in your mouth.
The service was excellent and the waiters are very attentive.
Overall I would highly recommend this restaraunt and look forward to going back.

Went here for a valentines meal my steak was delicious but my girlfriends steak was under done and she wasn't very well the day after, I'm hoping it was just a one off because it was one of the best steaks I've ever had I would recommend it to anyone!

If you fancy going somewhere with a beautiful ambiance, intelligent conversation and rich indulgent food - I highly recommend. Good for valentines, birthdays or any occasion where you want to treat a loved one or even yourself! I would definitely go back again, although it was not the cheapest of dinners it is definitely one to go for if you're feeling generous!

I’m a huge fan on Prime, St Albans. I have visited the restaurant on a few occasions and they have always impressed me. The service from the moment you walk into the restaurant is second to none. The food and ambience is wonderful and a really pleasant experience. I would certainly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Ate on. Thursday night, very attentive service team, tasty starters (1xsquid, 1xking prawns), perfectly cooked steak and nice sides. Parmesan scones while waiting for food were not nice. Overall good place to eat and I can recommend it.

Been to Prime a few times now, including the one in Chandlers Cross, and every meal has been excellent. This recent visit was for my birthday and we had the Sunday beef roast which is one of the tastiest you will find in any restaurant locally or even centrally in London. Lovely setting, very inviting and always good service. Highly recommended!

We dined here last night for an early birthday celebration. The waitress was brilliant with an extensive knowledge of the menu. We started with the squid and deep fried Brie. These were great and very big portions! Steak was cooked perfectly and the sides accompanied them well. Good choice of drinks, especially cocktails. Unfortunately we were too full for pudding. Worth the money for a special occasion and a great addition to St Albans!
