Just went to dinner here for the first time with some friends. It was quite wonderful. The service was friendly, prompt, and responsive. The food was perfectly made - the pork chops were tender and delicious, and the friend's pizza was excellent. We didn't have dessert, but only because we were full - the menu looked delicious. I can't speak... More

Birthday dinner for my daughter. Nice restaurant/atmosphere, nice wait staff. Except for the pizza, portions are smaller and extremely overpriced. I sent a $25 pork chop back for being grisly and tough. Marginal wine offerings unless you want to buy the whole bottle. And I like to determine if my wait staff deserves a tip. Many better places to eat... More

Great find in an uptown neighborhood near Univ Puget Sound, as opposed to the downtown waterfront area. Solid food, very fresh mussels and salmon; wish the mussels came with toasted bread, but that was about the only miss of the evening. Wife loved the pesto beneath the salmon, which had a hint of crushed pistachio in the pesto. Daughter really... More

I had heard from others that this was a good place in Tacoma. While it was "OK," I think there are other places in town that are 1) cheaper, 2) better, 3) both. On the plus side, I do like the flat 18% added to the total so all of the staff shares in the tip.

My husband and I ate a lot of great food on our trip to Oregon and Washington, but our dinner with friends at Primo stood out. The atmosphere was welcoming and we had a great table right by the large open windows. The food was upscale but approachable and the service excellent. No complaints! We started with three appetizers (maybe... More

Our family made last minute plans to eat out. We called the restaurant and they were able to squeeze us in on "the line". This is the best spot in the restaurant! You sit at a bar like area directly in front of the open kitchen. We were mesmerized by the cooking process. It was fun to see all of... More

We loved this restaurant. We were seated near the kitchen (high table off to the side) and could watch as the chefs were preparing the food. There is a counter right in front of the kitchen area divided by glass for people to sit and eat right there. We had a wonderful meal. Everything was very fresh and tasty. Salad... More

We arrived early for our reservation and were seated in a timely fashion. The service was attentive and the bar served us one of the best old fashions we have had in a while. Both appetizers and main courses nicely presented and tasty. We will return.

The wife and I shared a great happy hour meal here yesterday. Great service, nice atmosphere, and yummy food. My favorite was the chickpea frittes. My wife liked the polenta. My only regret was not ordering the Brussel sprouts appetizer - it looked and smelled amazing.

Loved this restaurant! The ingredients were fresh. The menu was innovative and tasty. The sauce the calamari is in is undoubtedly the best I have ever had. I would love to have that recipe! The lamb chops are small but packed with flavor. The service was helpful and friendly.
