Met friends here for the first time last Saturday for Happy Hour... The menu was extensive and everything sounded delicious. It was hard to choose just one thing so we ordered two... The food was delicious and fresh. We all ordered different items which gave us a chance to try a few more items. The menu items were reasonably priced... More

The saving grace of our dinner at Prime was that the steaks were very good: good meat, generous portions, cooked exactly as ordered. Salads were fresh and good (although the 'wedge' salad wasn't a wedge...odd). The sides we had were rich (garlic mashed potatoes) and over the top (twice-baked potato smothered in a multi-colored cheese and bacon bits layer that... More

I was here on Christmas Eve. It was beautifully decorated and had a great atmosphere. The food was absolutely outstanding. We had a wonderful time. Thanks to the owner and the great staff.

TERRIBLE!! We have eaten at the Agoura Prime Steakhouse and loved the prime rib so we decided to try this one. We started with each a glass of the most inexpensive merlot at $9 each. I had the wedge salad which bears no resemblance to the wedge salad shown on their web site. It was chopped lettuce drizzled with a... More

Great celebration dinner spot. That being said, it is one of the BEST Happy hours in Ventura. The martinis are huge, the appetizers are amazing. Happy hour starts at 5PM and goes until 8pm! The tables for happy hour do fill up so make sure you are there on time.

My wife and I started with the Spicy Calamari appetizer. The spice level was just right but unfortunately the calamari was very overcooked. It came with cocktail sauce but no lemon. We got tired of the rubberiness of the calamari and didn't finish the ap. We both had the four course Best of Prime. This is a fairly good deal.... More

Atmosphere is relaxing and the service is excellent. Give it a try, as a writer who travels most of the time I know a excellent... More

If you desire a great atmosphere, with a cool live music selection and an over the top wine list this is the place for you. If you noticed I didn't mention the menu. The reason is it needs and deserves a page of its own. The steaks are well portioned and prepared. My date was a profession from Osaka Japan... More

The building location is old but adds to the charm of the place. When we walked in we were greeted with a smile which continued for the entire evening. The food was absolutely fantastic and our congrats to the chef. They offer a fix price menu that has some great selections. You must try the Avocado Roll or the Heirloom... More

3 of us ordered the Prime Rib and the quality was very sub par considering the price. Lots of fat and gristle on all pieces. I get better meat at Sizzler. I couldn't eat it without drowning it in sauce and could not finish because it was so oily. We complained and the waiter offered us complimentary dessert which we... More
