Came here for a work event on a Wednesday night--- pretty empty, which I guess is expected. Our group was running late from an all-staff, and when I called the events coordinator on site to let her know, she seemed snappy and annoyed that we were late--- but I can't really help that. I didn't really know what the issue was since it was so slow that night though. Ordered the surf and turf sliders, which were delicious, and the calamari, which were equally delicious. I didn't care for the smoked gouda puffs though. I tried a bit of the tomato and basil flatbread, but there was nothing memorable to comment on. One of my coworkers complained that the calarami was either dry or soggy, but everybody else seemed to enjoy them. The drinks here are either hit or miss. The acai cosmo tastes like Robitussin, and the spa day just was bleh to me. The passion mojito was alright, but I liked the Walk in the Woods the most. Pretty nice bar overall. Maybe I'll come back for after work drinks.

Tasty, nice atmosphere, very good service. I found the menu a little limited for my palate.

Primebar is a Chicago Loop bar with great drinks and food. It is a popular happy hour location, but definitely holds its own as a kitchen. A fun but laid back atmosphere makes it an enjoyable place to catch up with friends at. The Cheeseburger at Primebar is an American Classic done premium. Cheddar, ketchup, lettuce, red onion, tomato, and a pretzel bun for a little twist. The bun is perfect and has a doughy and airy quality to it. The toppings are of the highest quality and are extremely fresh. The only thing holding this burger back was its beef. It was definitely high quality but lacked the juiciness or seasoning that I was looking for. Although, it did have the elusive char flavor which went so well with the cheddar and pretzel bun. The combination of the other flavors overcame the beef's shortcoming for the most part and this is one of the best bar burgers you'll find.

I've gone to Primebar several times for lunch and happy hours. They serve contemporary bar food in a modern setting. In addition to South Branch, it's one of my top options on the west side of Wacker for business lunches. For happy hour they offer specials like $5 glasses of wine and $4 Chicago brewed beers.

Recently had a chance to head over to Primebar with some co-workers for lunch and taste wise I couldn't be happier! I ordered the Seared Tuna with a side of Brussels Sprouts and everything was delicious. The waiter seemed a little distracted and wasn't as attentive as I would have liked (which was surprising as they didn't seem too busy.) If it wasn't on the massive delays on refills from this it'd have a perfect 5 and I hate not doing that as I don't think it was a restaurant issue but just a waiter issue. That being said the food was great and I'll absolutely be back!

The place is as pricey as one would expect for the area, however has some great daily drink specials to appeal to the after-work crowd. The service was very good, all smiles, great energy and the crowd seems like a great place to mingle or just stick with our group. I can see myself frequenting here more.

I've had a few lunches at Primebar with co-workers for our "fancy outings" and it's nothing really that special. The few times that I've gone, everything that I picked out to order wasn't on the menu anymore, which was weird, because clearly it was on the menu right in front of me. Bottom line, they change their menu a lot, without printing new menus. The food was average. The main draw is the upscale atmosphere and drinks. I wouldn't seek out Primebar if I were looking to impress a client over lunch.
