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.

Four of us visited this charming, small restaurant on Whidbey Island just before closing on Dec 27, where we experienced a warm welcome. We had all eaten there before, so it was no surprise that they had a broad cellar, waiters knowledgeable in both food and wine, and many organic and local dishes. We enjoyed the steak frites (with properly... More

My favorite Langley watering hole! Great happy hour menu available everyday between 3-6. Always offer a unique array of cocktails. Try the locally distilled bourbon with the honey and calvados. Terrific! Warmed olives, escargot and chicken liver mousse all delicious. Can't go wrong with any option on the extensive menu. Snag a table by the window for a lovely water... More

Always like the variety on the menu ... I go here frequently and my "go to" items are a bowl full of Penn Cove Mussels and a pint of Manny's. Service is great ... in the summer sitting on the deck let's you see beautiful Saratoga Passage as well as "street life" of Langley below.

Penn Cove Mussels. Perfectly done. Ate them while gazing out the window at the view. Stopped in for lunch on a recent visit to Langley and perfectly delighted with the food choices, presentation, taste and service. Highly recommend Prima Bistro.
