Service was perfect to accommodate our party of 10. Orders were all delivered for lunch in a timely manner. I along with our friends appreciated "small plates"as a choice. I had truffled wild prawns- - delicious. I tried my husband's grilled lamb chops which seemed to melt in my mouth.

We have had great meals here and not so great. What is strange is they have been on the same item at different times and tgey weren't complex recipes. Ambiance is very nice, great location. The outdoor seating is nice when available, otherwise go for a seat on the street side. We have been seated snd forgotten when seated back... More

The place to dine in the summer is out on their deck in the winter any table will do. Outstanding food with a Italian and Mediterranean flair. Reservations are a must no matter when you visit.

Top of my list when visiting Langley. Customer focused staff and fantastic food. Their 3-5pm Happy Hour is great with their terrific apps at discounted prices. Unique cocktails and great wine list. For dinner the steak frites are amazing. Homemade desserts as well as homemade ice cream. Bob took good care of me this trip. A sister restaurant will be... More

We have been coming to this location for many years, but now the cuisine is literally over the top amazing! All of the people we deal with are completely about the customer's happy quotient....and then there's the food!!!! I can honestly say I have always had an amazing meal in this establishment - customer service was another benefit. Their attitude... More

No matter when we visit Langley, Prima is always on the list for dynamite original dishes and always well executed meals. As a francophile I'm always up for good French faves and the Croque Madame rivals any I've had in Paris. Keep it on your short list, along with the always strongly brewed Happy Hippie coffee from Mukilteo Roasters.

Outstanding. My favorite Langley restaurant. Went three times this week. Never disappointed. Love the owners and the staff and the food is fabulous. My fav dish is the New York strip and I usually order it with a Caesar salad instead of the frites (but the frites are to die for and a regular splurge).

My wife and I stopped in for lunch on this last Saturday. Our waiter was very good. My wife was undecided and her correctly steered her in the direction of the truffled wild prawns and I ordered the croque monsieur. Mine was very good and large but my wifes was delicious and she loved it. Congrats to our waiter. Definitely... More

I had French onion soup, which was ok, but not as good as the one they made years ago. It was cheesy though, and I liked that. Their bread was rather dry. The side salad was $8 and consisted of greens with bleu cheese crumbles and dressing. Just ok, and not worth the $8. Husband had mussels with chorizo, which... More

Family plus a friend gathered here for our adult daughter's birthday dinner. Very good choice. Service was just right. Ambiance pleasant and the restaurant was welcoming for our infant grandchild. Wine and food choices very good. Entrees including the cassoulet, trout and wild boar were all very good. A definitely positive experience.

Thank Mavmed
