Went here for a business dinner. We had a separate room and we didn't order from the menu, instead our food was already decided for us what we were going to have. I will say that from the appetizers to the desserts, everything was delicious!...More

You could ask to sit downstairs. We did that on Valentine's Day weekend and it seemed much quieter than upstairs. There only a few tables down there.

I've been to both and prime is smaller and more intimate and steak is larger and noisier. I like both and both have similar steaks. So the food is similar just the ambiance! I hope this helps!
