Briefly and succintly: the steaks were prepared to perfection, as were the starters and other entrees we savoured. The decor, although quite tired in this part of town by now, it works in the indiffirence it evokes. The service was the epitome of professionalism and efficiency: attentive and cordial, yet reserved and respectful. The value for money ratio, very proportionate. The only drawback is the refusal to take reservations which, besides the practical hassle, resonates a self-assurance in conflict with the otherwise unassuming and pleasant experience.

I really wanted to like Prime Meats. I've been there for drinks countless times and finally just got around to having dinner. Our braised pork was delicious, and the spatzle was tasty but the lack of friendliness and practically non-existent service was disappointing. Given the amount of great restaurants on both Court and Smith, I would think Prime Meats would put greater emphasis on service. Probably won't go back for dinner. Just drinks as the bar staff are indeed actually friendly.

My girlfriend and I went to Prime Meats the other night for a bite to eat. Being big Frankie's aficionados and having been there for drinks, dinner was definitely in order. The times we have been for drinks, the bartenders are knowledgeable, friendly, and provide great service. My girlfriend and I split a delicious salad and then dug into the most succulent braised pork belly. This dish was wonderful. The pork had been braised in a riesling, served in a pork jus, root vegetables and potato dumplings. The flavors were complex, melded very well and was one of the best pork bellies I have had. Forget the Spotted Pig. Come here instead.
