All good things must come to an end. For the past several racing season, my wife and I look forwarded to a dinner at Prime after a day at the races; however, this year was a major disappointment. First, please know that the meal was still wonderful, and the staff is top-notch; it just wasn't what it used to be, which was extraordinary. The sweet calamari is gone. The local rattlesnake ridge steaks are gone, and now the chocolate cake has raspberry and does not come with milk. Petty? Perhaps, but for $150+ for two people, people that gladly paid that amount in the past, I cannot justify it any longer given the restaurant's decision to be like many other steak houses; it was unique, and now its no different than a Morton's, Capital Grill, or Ruth's Chris, great, just not special.
Absolutely the best of everything. The chef's meal was superb. The ambiance lively and the staff all gracious. Prime is a must for anyone close to the tracks or Albany. The owner Angelo even came by to say hello, now that's first class all the way.
