This is our third time to Prasino. My wife and I split the beet salad. It was superb and plenty for two. We both ordered the salmon over spiral zucchini and tomatoes. Also, very good. In fact I say it was one of the best cooked salmon I've ever had. Before dinner she ordered their sauvignon blanc which had hints of grapefruit. If you love grapefruit, probably a wonderful drink, but was just so-so with my spouse. I ordered a glass of their red sangria, which was very tasty. I'd order that again. Server was friendly and attentive until we needed to leave and then she was more or less AWOL. Another server saw our dilemma and took care of us. On the downside, about midway through our meal one of the bus boys decides it's time to scrape the undersides of ALL the nearby tables.. with a putty knife. All the crap you can imagine that would be under a restaurant table... well... yeah... it was falling on the floor. My wife nearly lost her appetite. After the scraping was over and we had time to get our minds off of that, we were debating dessert when we saw a flourless chocolate cake on the dessert menu. We ordered one to split. Unfortunately, it was overbaked. No gooey chocolaty middle. Big disappointment. Overall, a nice place that was strangely not-busy on a Friday evening... but maybe they make a habit of cleaning table undersides and others, like us, find it totally unappetizing.

The service is always excellent at Prasino and the food is as well. This evening, the restaurant was quite warm and everyone was seated way in the back while the front was almost empty. That was odd to me. We ordered our favorite appetizer - the crab salad stuffed avocado and ordered another to take home with us. Food is always plated beautifully.

Oh my goodness what a wonderful experience! The food was delicious, the server was very attentive and efficient, and the table was ready when we arrived. We were there for my daughters birthday dinner and they had a menu with vegan choices so it was perfect. They even surprised her with a little brownie! We will definitely be back. I would recommend it to anyone, it really was enjoyable. Thank you Prasino,

I went to Prasino for dinner with a former work colleague. We had great service, a nice waitperson and the food was for the most part delicious. The drinks were tasty and creative. We shared the best appetizer I ever tasted; avocado stuffed with crabmeat. I could just have eaten a couple of those and been happy for the rest of my life. My friend ordered the braised ribs which were of course delicious, as they have been in past visits. I ordered the margharita flat bread which was nothing special. But overall the experience was very good, and I will be coming back there soon.

Our waiter took forever. He never checked on us after the food was served. I need to ask someone for our check we waited so long. We had an 18 month old with us. It’s always best when there’s a table with a toddler to get us out fast.

Maybe it was just an off day for them, but it was our Mother's Day dinner. I stood at the front door for some time while the hostess was on the phone. She didn't even look up at me. I walked outside to greet my family, when I came back she was still on the phone and we had to wait a few minutes for her to finish before she even looked up. Not a good start. Not even a smile or a welcoming tone. Our server was beyond bored, he seemed really annoyed to be there. When we asked questions about the menu, he would look all around while answering, so it was really hard to hear him. He hardly came back to check on us. I didn't like my food and didn't eat it. Didn't have a chance to tell him until he came with the check. He did take it off the bill, which I appreciated, but earlier would have been nice, so I could have ordered something else. The nicest people there were the gentlemen clearing dishes away. I saw a manager type talking to other tables, but she never came to ours. On our way out, the hostess very quietly said, "thanks for coming in." I could barely hear her. Good thing I happened to look at her, or I would have missed it. It's too bad this didn't work out. It's a nice place and an ideal location for my family. None of my party were impressed with their food, and with the service we received, I don't think we'll be returning. Kind of a bummer.

Incredible food. Atmosphere very large and cold. needs partition of some sort. The space is way too large for a comfortable, cozy dinner. Fake candles? Wait staff does not carry through the organic theme.
