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. A la cart selections include “primers,” raw bar favorites, mizu sushi, USDA prime steaks and chops, surf & turf and hand made desserts. 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.

beautiful night on the water. Food was delicious, with typical expensive steakhouse prices, but worth it for a special night out

Made a dinner reservation on OpenTable for my wife's birthday. I noted it in the reservation that I wanted a birthday cake and mentioned it to the person who called to verify the reservation. We finished dinner and no birthday cake or celebration as requested. Dinner for 2 with 3 drinks, 2 appetizers and 2 entrees was $273 a bit out landish in my opinion. We live locally in New Canaan and many of our friends have stated the same that the place is over priced for very average food. We won't be returning and will tell our circle of friends!

We used an AmEx gift card and our waiter told us they could only charge 80percent on the card which we were fine with.

Disappointing experience. Did not honor reservation time. Sat 40 min late. Standing in the doorway with crowds is not a safe environment. Don’t overbook

The lobster bisque was watery and not well seasoned. The "steak" sandwich was more like a roast beef sandwich with the meat fried on the grill. In my mind this was not a steak sandwich at all.

Having said that, you can't beat the location. Sitting on the deck, overlooking the marina was great.

Beautiful Sunday lunch with my son and my mom facing the marina and water. Fabulous service! My son loved the salmon rolls and the filet mignon. My mom and I enjoyed the Lobster Roll with sides of mashed potatoes and mushrooms. Lovely ambiance to be by the water today.

It was a very nice restaurant with great steaks. However, I felt the price was more than the food was worth. I also did not appreciate everything a la carte, including the bread for the table. I found that to be a little tacky. The ambience was fair.

The ambiance is always spectacular, a little on the noisy side (loud music), the food was delicious without much delay, could have been a little slower paced, it's on the pricey side so beware, but our server was the BEST, he was attentive and super friendly.

This waterfront restaurant has a varied and tasty menu and great atmosphere. We loved the fresh seafood as well as the lamb loin and beef wellington mains.

It was very busy and so the service was a little slow at times, but overall it was delicious. Recommend!
