Great food especially the spaghetti. I go there for lunch even though it is on the pricey side, if not down right expensive. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

Pros: Great food

Cons: Pricey for lunch

The service was slow. I had to ask twice for a second Black &Tan. The braised lamb shank was way over cooked...kind of like lamb mush...very little flavor. The Colcannon and Champ potatoes were very dry. The Bushmills, Black & Tan and the Sticky toffee pudding were good. The St Patty??s Day dinner was a disappointment. I have had good meals there...this was not one.

Primo Grill is a neighborhood restaurant only 5 minutes away from where I live. However, this is not your typical neighborhood eatery. Primo Grill is a leader in creative culinary cuisine. Every part of this establishment is well thought out. Chef Charley McManus has refined wood fired and grilled excellence. I blush when I say I frequent Primo Grill at least once a week. The servers know me by name as I know them! When I walk in the door I am greeted warmly and asked if I will be having my usual Blood Orange Martini or glass of Pinot Noir. My choice depends on what night it is. You simply cannot go wrong with what entree you choose on the menu. My favorite will always be Charley's Rib Eye Steak cooked at Medium temperature. Dessert is not something you can easily pass on at Primo Grill, the Sticky Toffee Pudding is purely off the charts; amazing! I recommend Primo to couples for an intimate date night, families, and friends. To sum it up, Primo Grill is delish!

The food is delicious. The atmosphere is cozy, yet lively. This is a great for date night dinner. The staff is very friendly and courteous. We always have a good time.

This is a great little high-end place in Tacoma. They offer creative food, a quiet atmosphere, and friendly service. It's in a convenient location with minimal wait!

Primo Grill has become one of our favoite places to eat again and again. They have a wonderful menu of fresh made pastas, steaks, fish, pizza... Fantastic daily chef specials. Service is always attentive and welcoming. They have a super wine list and decent bar drinks. Nice atmosphere and very resonably priced. They have an early pre-fix menu during week nights which is a great deal. My favorites are the homemade pastas (the pumpkin ravioli with sage is the best but it's seasonal) the potato sage augratin and the grilled bread with balsamic is a must. Truely a place we enjoy more each time we go.

Pros: wonderful food will make you return again

Cons: some of the best meals with have had there are seasonal or a chef special for that night only. Parking can be limited

My husband & I partook in '06 Valentines Day cooking class, wonderful food and great couple time. We asked another couple to go to Valentine's Dinner, made reservations more than a month ago to ensure a good early time, good service and good food - we didn't get that and we were embarassed for the restaurant and ourselves since we took our friends and gave raving reviews. While we spoke w/neighboring customers to their plates that looked wonderful, we ordered pulled pork and the tuna as the presentation was beautiful and quite generous...incidently the neighbors arrived 1/2 hour after us, they received their food 1/2 hour before we ordered! Also ordered in our party was 1/2 chicken and salmon - while the food was "ok" - the pulled pork was less than 1/4 of the neighbors, it was burned, dry and then saturated w/olive oil to possibly hide the burnt tase (it didn't), the vegetables were burned also. The chicken was two 1/2 breast - not the 1/2 of check as described on the menu - now for the atmosphere, it was like a cafeteria style loud no music - so much for this restaurant....a bad experience. I encourage to stop in on an early week day dinner - they lost several customers due to slow service, terrible food, no presentation that was consistent to our neighbors and this dinner wasn't cheap!!! Most disappointing was that we had made early reservations hoping that this would ensure - the other part, we drove one hour to get here and back - needles to say, we won't be back. Sorry Charlie - Jacqueline....quality is important, retain the customers you have....but you lost us.

Pros: clean bathroom

Cons: they lost us as customers due to poor service, food not up to par & high cost for terrible dinner

The design of this restaraunt is awesome! The gourmet food comes in small, but obviously well-prepared delicious portions. And you get to watch the team of chefs prepare the food right in front of you! The baked goat cheese is the best thing on the menu.

We are lucky to live close enough to frequent the Primo and it has been our favorite restraunt for over two years now. If you're anywhere close, don't miss it. And don't miss the wood-fired vegetable lasagna either!

This place was pretty darn good. I felt the ambience was a little strange, though.
