Terrific hamburgers...interesting sides..great for after the movie down the street...this is a place for friends and couples. All ages welcome but the noise level is one better tolerated by younger folks at least after 8 or 9 p.m. But get here and enjoy marvelously concocted and delicious hamburgers, yes you can get them rare! I highly recommend it for lunch... More

I'm not sure why this place gets such good reviews. The prices and location were good, and the service was friendly and efficient. However, the main thing – the food – was seriously lacking. We ordered the Modern burger and the kale Caesar. We requested the burger medium. It came out beyond well-done, but we had a train to catch... More

The mushroom burger was delicious. It came with a small portion of fries, but they too were very good. Nice vibe in the place.

I've only gone once, but was very impressed. The burger was delicious and actually big enough for two people in my opinion. I totally enjoyed everything about this place, from the food to the employee's... great place to dine

We were looking for a place to eat after riding the train back from NYC and stumbled on Prime 16. Nice place, helpful staff and good food at a reasonable price.

I had gone in with a colleague of mine because neither of us have been. He is from out of the state, and I just haven't tried it at all. We were pleasantly surprised at the extensive beer menu, and the very delicious food available.

We had a glass of wine and split a burger with a side of parmesan truffle fries. Food was good, but not fantastic.

We loved our burgers and their titles, different spices and special additions. I was pleased with the burger I ordered: I had The Cowboy, with a Kent Falls Pineapple Juicemaker draft beer. It was an awesome match of food and drink. Our waitress listened to our Likes and Dislikes about draft beers, brought us samples, then brought the beer out... More

I like Prime but never go out of my way to go. It's ok but over rated in my opinion when people talk about the burgers. There are better elsewhere. If friends are going, say ok. If they ask where you want to go, pick somewhere else. That's my take.

My wife and I were attending an event for our daughter so we had some time to fill prior to the concert. We checked out Prime 16 before driving into New Haven and thought it would be a good place for lunch - we weren't disappointed! We were seated in a quiet spot for two, very cosy. We ordered the...
