Great service, food and great singer!
It was wonderful!!
I would definitely recommend it. I would definitely recommend it
Unfortunately, much has changed since my last visit to CPI about 3 years ago. I was not expecting the prices to be so high, and the selection of entrees so limited. I understand the the recent events we are going through had some effect on their business, but I was not pleased with the food selection or prices.
We had dinner with another family (total of 8) and had some dietary restrictions, but Brian, our server was amazing! He was very attentive & patient with our specifications. 3 of us had the seafood pasta with a spicy red sauce...the best we’ve had because there were so many different kinds of seafood, including crab! Pesto gnocchi & chicken parm were great as well! 2 in our party had the Kansas City steak & it was cooked to their liking & very tasty! We look forward to coming back & hope to have Brian again!
The food was delicious. Our waiter was mediocre. My assumption he was quite new. The singer in the tent was very good. But the music was way too loud. It interfered in our conversation
There were 6 of us and we ordered fettuccine alfredo, chicken marsala, beef filet, seafood carbonara, chicken parmigiana and chicken vesuvio; all were delicious. Servings were generous 4 took home leftovers. We ate outside on the patio which I enjoyed. It was a leisurely meal, service was attentive and very pleasant. There was live music in the outdoor tent, so I'm glad we were seated on the patio as the noise level in the tent was louder. I like to be able to have a conversation without shouting.
A great experience every time. Awesome service by Russel and the food was delicious
Went to restaurant on Saturday evening for dinner. We sat inside restaurant and we were very surprised at the lack of social distance between tables and when we were waiting to be seated.
We eat at this restaurant often and were surprised it was business as usual as if COVID did not exist.
I’m not sure if we will be back until after the pandemic.
Keep coming back! The food is fantastic, service is amazing, and the vibe always is upbeat.
Really enjoyed dinner - was looking forward to entertainment but it was wayyyyyy to loud - couldn’t talk in bar - would be great but they seriously need it to not be so loud
it was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had. The food was excellent and the service provided by Brian was amazing. We were able to sit outside and it was very comfortable. My family and I can not wait to go back.
Thank you for everything
Service was outstanding as always. Food was fabulous as always. Live music on the small deck outside was a little too loud and made having a conversation difficult. Didn’t expect live music on a Sunday at 5:30 pm. It was a family meal and we were hoping to converse more but were unable to.
We chose Chicago Prime Italian for my birthday dinner, and we were absolutely floored by the level of attention and service we got by our waiter. He made my birthday feel extra special and the food was amazing. We will definitely be returning soon!
Great place for date nite. Caters to 35+ crowd, great live lounge singers and 70s 80s music. Need reservations, drinks never watered down. Amazing pasta and steak. Best Chocolate dessert. Excellent attentive staff
Our server was amazing! Ambiance was amazing! Music was a bit loud but did not bother us much.
The food was amazing!
But... there was a manager, her name was Carol, and she was so rude!
I have never been treated with such disrespect.
1. She cleaned off the table in an angry matter. She spilled balsamic vinegar on my friends light dress. She never apologized just walked away
2. She came up to the table and told us we needed to leave. She said she told us already. There were people waiting. Where in fact there were other open tables.
We spoke with the general manager whom said he would talk to her but still I felt such a bad taste.
Outside of this awful manager everything was great. While we would like to come back, it will take a while to heal from this distasteful experience.
Loved the outdoor patio space. Very good menu selection. Well prepared salmon and seafood carbonara. We hope to return very soon. Reservations needed. Special music was not too loud so conversation was still possible. This contributed to a lovely evening out! Thank you Prime Table Italian!
Everything was great as usual. Love how Andy John walks thru the place & talks to everyone.
Thanks AJ, everything was great and we listened to a great band Simply Sound(Rod and Katie)
Fantastic appetizers, Chicken dishes, and service. Very comfortable atmosphere. A go-to place for the best dinner around.
ALWAYS a great meal! Our server Nicole was fantastic, second time we have had her and she is so friendly and knowledgeable.
Great live music and beautiful night
Service and atmosphere were good. The food quality was not very good
I love this place. Staff is awesome, food amazing, drinks are delicious. They all take Covid seriously and keep the customers health as a priority. This is a neighbor gem. More people need to know about this place. Great experience.
Very nice outdoor patio and they cared enough to provide live entertainment! Food slightly pricey but excellent.
One person in our group had the veal chop and said it was great. The rest of us had various steaks, most of which we were really good. Mine was a little overdone, although I still ate most of it. The Parmesan topping was also not the most flavorful, so I'm not sure that I'd pay extra for that next time. The portions are plenty, so there were leftovers for most of us as well. We truly enjoyed the live music too, what a great way to spend an evening out.
The Chicago Prime is the best Italian restaurant in the northwest suburbs. The service is second to none and the food is great!
They make every guest feel special and important.
If you want a great meal and great night out go here!
We will never go back. The service was incredibly slow, the music outside so loud we had to go inside and we counted at least 6 employees with either no mask or masks below their noses. Then my daughter mentioned that in her yelp review the owner implied she’s a lazy person collecting unemployment. He told us to never come back and we should go to The Olive Garden. He’s a disgusting human being and this is the worst experience we’ve ever had mad with a restaurant.
Cannot say enough about this place!! Food was outstanding. Service great! Our server wand busboy/runner were so attentive and sweet. We are definite fans!! Cheers!...to Chicago Italian Prime!!
There were four of us who all enjoyed the dinner and the outdoor patio.at times the entertainer was a little loud which made it difficult to talk to each other. Otherwise the food and service was great!
Amazing experience. I’ve lived in this area for years and this has always been the best meal I’ve eaten in Schaumburg. The service is amazing and I’ve always tried new things and never been disappointed. Their wine special is a great deal, too!
We enjoyed great food and wonderful service. All together a great dining experience.
Thank you to AJ and the entire staff at Italian Prime for helping us have a great 15th anniversary. Dinner was absolutely perfect and our server Nicole was great. Thank you
Our outdoor dining experience at Chicago Prime was exactly what our friends told us it would be! Food, service, ambience — A+!
Always enjoy our time here. Andy John & staff always treat us like we are family.
Was my friend’s Birthday. We sat on patio which was lovely and the food and service was excellent.
We sat on the patio to listen to the live music. Pete was great entertainment. Nicole was our server and did a great job also! We started with the caprese salad, which was super fresh.
My husband and I both ordered pasta, the gnocchi all pesto and the beef braised ravioli. DELICIOUS! Will definitely be back, one of our favorite places.
