Gorgeous restaurant in terms of design. It's a small restaurant so probably best is to come with a reservation to avoid long waiting times. The food was exquisite and every guest loved their choice, with the exception of the pork agnolotti which was too salty for our taste. However, with no hesitation, they took it back and made a new one altering the recipe a little to make it perfect for us. Great service overall and totally worth the extra expense for a nice celebratory dinner. I had the rigatoni with goat cheese and mushrooms, and would definitely recommend it.
Did someone say pasta? Primal has received national recognition for their offerings which are a blend of traditional with modern fusion elements. The food is generous and delicious! The service was excellent and extremely helpful. And the space is cozy and has a lot of character. It's not in the best part of town but the whole area around Primal is starting to undergo a bit of a renaissance. I love catching these cool off the beaten path finds! 5 x 🍝🍝🍝🍝🍝
The place is kind of in a sketchy area and the decor is a little dated and run down. The food and service was good but not great and small portions for the high price tag? More the $100 for two small plates of pasta and 2 drinks? They don’t even serve bread as a starter?
I’m a big fan of trying bone marrow on a menu so Primal was recommended to me while in Saskatoon. It’s a nice, intimate restaurant with some old-school soulful vibes playing. Our server was very friendly and made some great recommendations for food and wine. We had the oysters and bone marrow for appetizers. The bone marrow was the most savory I’ve had. For dinner, I had the rigatoni, goat cheese, mushrooms, tomatoes, greens, truffle oil dish. I paired it with a nice white wine from Italy after sampling a few. And for dessert, we had the chocolate torte. It was a perfect ending of a delicious meal. I’ll definitely be back.
Walk in without reservation. Super busy night. The waitress gave me a glass and whole bottle of water in order to refill it all by myself. Understandable. I sat by the bar. Just ordered a spaghetti carbonara. I waited for 25min. Too many diners made it too noisy. However the food really comforted me. Very old school carbonara, creamy and silky sauce covered the noodles. Rich flavor from pecorino cheese and pancetta. The strong black pepper flavor is the spark of the dish. Classic.
