This is my favorite place to eat in Lenox! Since I live in Lenox I am able to go to Prime often and believe me - I DO!!! I love the owners, the staff - they are remarkable. The food is unbelievably good - my favorite is the Steak Tips. So full of flavor and so tender. I send a... More

My wife and I enjoyed one of the best meals we've had dining at Prime. Not only was our waitress Margie exceptional, but every bite was absolutely scrumptious. From the complimentary bruschetta served with fresh baked bread, the soup and salad course and our entrées... Just thinking of it now makes my mouth water. We enjoyed the pappardelle bolognese and...

I was traveling cross country and had eaten in Italian restaurants 5 nights in a row. I love Italian food but just wanted fish and a glass of white wine. The owner chatted with me while I looked at the menu in the window and I told him what I was after. The crusted tuna over risotto with a cherry... More

This is a long-time Lenox restaurant. Following a needed updateseveral years ago, it reopened as a star. It is now needlessly expensive, especially the drinks. Service is good with the potential to eat outside on nice evenings, which is a definite plus! Parking is limited to what you can find on-street.

The interior is slightly New York glitzy, but the outdoor patio is a treat. Good Italian food, great service

We stumbled upon Prime and went in to eat. It was our first time and we all loved our meals!! Next time we come to Lenox, I'm trying the steak. The owners were great too. Extremely friendly and welcoming. I'm getting hungry just typing this review. Thanks Gennaro, mom and the great staff.

Let me start out by saying that I despise bland food. The spicy sausage dish with peppers and pappardella was perhaps the best such dish I've ever had the pleasure of eating. Flavorful and delicate. Service was superb and the portions were extremely generous. Really hard to find anything to criticize here. A+ all the way. Bravo. Wife and I... More
