The atmosphere, food, service was great. However, up near the kitchen felt like a sauna. I don't recommend sitting near it when it's really warm outside already. We only stayed for an app and drinks because we were so warm!

Perfect COVID-19 dining option with no concerns about socially distancing. Food and drinks were prepared great. The brick chicken entree was awesome, even on a hot day. A bit pricey for me as an everyday option, but I will return when things return to normal and happen to be in the neighborhood again.

The waitress was so kind, patient, and helpful. I have a strong food allergy to onions, which is in pretty much anything. She took time to understand and find me the perfect meal. The chef was also very cautious and I left feeling great! Will definitely be back.

Excellent food and service for date night. The bartender (Frankie) made up an excellent drink for me that was not a menu item. The server (Rachel) was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return.

Ordered Black Manhattan and Specialty Old Fashioned--good VALUE. Capellini pasta with Morels which was seasonal and Alaskan Salmon for entrees. spectacular! Finished with peach/blueberry handle (split) as we were finishing our bottle of wine. Love the open windows (when weather permits). Felt like we were outside.

Food and service was excellent. Also the owners are meeting all requirements to keep customers safe from Covid-19. We felt very comfortable eating at the restaurant rather than needing to do take-out.

Salmon special and scallops were cooked perfectly. Primo knows how to do seafood! Muscles were awesome as usual. Homemade focaccia was OK, but looking forward to them getting their grilled bread back on the menu.

This was our first meal out after months of social-distancing. This is one of our favorite restaurants (the pork chop is delish!) and we were happy to see how seriously they're taking the county and state's new health regulations. We left happy and felt cared for. The best!

I’ve taken Grammy winners here post-show, and they’ve loved the food. So much so that even during the curbside-only pandemic times, I’d plan my trips north to King County with take out dinners in tow so that my Kirkland peeps could agree that indeed, “it’s delicious”.

This was our first restaurant experience since the stay at home order. The staff was friendly and attentive. They made us feel safe, but in such smooth ways that we could relax and celebrate some family events. I love that the windows on two sides are like giant garage doors. You are in a nice restaurant, but with the fresh air of dining on a patio. We had a wide variety of food at the table (pizzas, salmon, pork) all cooked perfectly and served at the same time. For dessert our table had panna cotta and a peach blueberry hand pie. SO GOOD!!! 100% recommended!

Oh Primo, how we have missed you! So happy to return to our favorite date night spot in Tacoma. I believe we ate one of everything on the menu and you happily rolled us out of there. Can't wait to be back again and again and again....

We love Primo Grill. We picked up takeout during the pandemic and now that they’re open we are supporting them 3000% !

We loved everything and we will be back as soon as we can!! The servers and the cooks wear masks and they have the doors open so you get air and they do correct social distancing measures as well!

As usual Primo is outstanding! This has been my go to for special occasions and anytime I want a great meal. The service is top notch, always attentive to your needs and desires.
The braised short rib was fall apart tender and the malfadine al vodka was delicious.

Overall we had a very good meal and the service was top notch with one exception -- I did ask for salt and pepper - none at the table (this is by design due to Covid-19) and was given only salt. I could have asked again, but didn't want to be a bother. The food was very good though.

I would most definitely recommend this restaurant to a friend!!

We were greeted promptly and by our name, which was nice. We were seated immediately and our server was prompt with coming to our table.

Our dinner was delicious all the way around. Our only gripe was the large table behind us was SO loud, we could not hear ourselves think, let alone talk. Given several other open tables, I wish they would have seated us away from them. Aside from that, it was fantastic!

Always delicious. A small menu so everything is a specialty. The pizza are light and delicious, you can also get a big steak and everything in between. Delicious appetizers and house made pasta. Great bar.

Although we've lived in Tacoma for four years, last year was our first trip to Primo. We've become fans! Great drinks, great food, good service. However, significantly overpriced wine.
