    I was absolutely astonished by the level of excellence. I chose this place for dinner and to propose to my girlfriend and I could not have picked a better one. The staff assisted me with organizing a plan, the offered champaign on the house and I recieved a follow-up the next day congratulating us on our engagement. That's what I call amazing service.

I had the sea bass and my husband had the filet, both were cooked perfectly and delicious! They have a large bar area so will try happy hour there soon too!

    Had dinner with my husband here and we had a great experience. The filet mignon, chilean sea bass, lobster bisque, chocolate peanut butter pie and carrot cake were delicious! Although, we preferred the carrot cake without the pineapple syrup. Sometimes the classics are perfect the way they were intended to be. Our waiter was very friendly and accessible. We had a great date night for the first time since having our baby!

    Quite simply, the best filet I have ever eaten. Anywhere. The chocolate peanut butter dessert was outstanding and even though I was full beyond belief, I forced myself to finish it, it was that good. The truffle oil deviled eggs were simply delicious and I don't like deviled eggs. Service was impeccable and the decor was classy and fit the overall vibe.

The food was excellent from the cocktails to the fabulous dessert . The wait staff was helpful and attentive. This is a hidden gem you must try especially if you are a foodie.

    This is my first year participating in restaurant week. I chose this restaurant based on reviews and photos from Yelp. Overall, our experience was good and the food was good. We had reservations at 5:45 and were seated quickly but they sat us right by the kitchen door-where I had asked NOT to be seated. The noise level was awful. It was very busy and loud. For food, I had the sea bass and it was magnificent. My date had the the filet mingnon. He said it was ok and had better elsewhere-which I expected from the reviews. We both got the carrot cake, which was okay. I'd recommend this place for a special occassion, not a 1st date. For first timers of restaurant week, it wasn't a bad choice.

    My wife and I went for restaurant week. The atmosphere was nice. The service was good. The bread was excellent. My wife and I had the lobster bisque which we both liked. Then came our main course and I must say I was disappointed. I had the filet mignon which was cooked pefectly but that's all I can say about the dish that was good. The 10 dollar sauce that I added was not worth it. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant and the vegetables were mundane. My wife had the salmon which was very but the rice it came with was over cooked and the sauce was so rich you felt like that is what got you full. Both of our desserts were not that great. We both finished about half and left. Try oceanair

    From arrival to departure, the focus here is on guest service and a high quality dining experience. We went during restaurant week and the restaurant week menu reflected a level of quality, preparation and presentation commensurate with their daily menu offerings. Service was attentive and timely. Management was present and visible; available to address any questions and to ensure smooth FOH operations on a busy evening. If you like to order bottled wine under $50/bottle, the choices are somewhat limited. If you like much higher end wine, there are plenty available from $60 - $100 and up. Enjoyed the atmosphere. Not too loud, even with a full house. I rated 4 overall since OP, by rating standards, is not a 5-diamond establishment.

    We went for restaurant week and were really excited to check this place out. At high end restaurants like this one, the service should be impeccable, however, it was horrible. We had to ask for drinks two or three times, EVERY TIME. Then, for every meal, someone didn't get served. We had to ask all 3 courses where the 6th person in our party's meal was. That is just so unacceptable to me. We spoke to the manager about our experience when he came to our table and all he said was that he had to talk to the chef about that. He never returned to our able to apologize or try to make it right. This was our first and last time we will eat at ocean prime.

    Limited menu and busy because of restaurant week, but excellent food - filet, lobster bisque, desserts. The salad was a tad wimpy, but who goes out for a wedge? The extra "Blue Cheese Crust" was a little too much flavor for the meat and very salty. The filet stood on its own - it was the star, so the green beans and potatoes which accompanied it were not impressive. Our primary server was just excellent and other wait staff also did well. But there were too many of them, maybe because of how busy they were. Managers inquired too times - not overwhelming, be we didn't need all that attention. Luckily, that doesn't distract from the quality of the food. I will go back for the sea bass.

    This was our second visit to Ocean Prime and it was as memorable as the first. We introduced another set of friends to the restaurant. We started in the bar and enjoyed cocktails with some truffled popcorn. We were seated promptly in a fabulous booth and were privileged to have Scarlett again as our Server. The Restaurant Week menu was wonderful. Scarlett anticipated the changes needed to the first and main courses to make them safe but still delicious for my wife. This is by far our favorite restaurant in Dallas for the food, decor, service and overall experience.

    It was restaruant week so it was busy for a Tuesday. For food, we ordered calamari, wedge salad, 2 filets (ordered medium rare plus, came out medium well), lobster tail, mashed potatoes, Mac and cheese, and carrot cake. A lot for 2 people but I like to try a lot. The food was great, slightly unique (in particular the calamari), and cooked properly beside the steaks. Service lacked in the following: I ordered a bottle of Krug so I was expecting service that would normally be attributed to a nice champagne but my glass was empty more than it was full which wouldn't be a problem if they had set the bucket on the table so I could pour, no steak knives w/ mains, and the server didn't check on us as much as I would have preferred. I will go back.

    It's always easier to point out flaws rather than praise the positive. And, the positives do far outweigh the negatives at Ocean Prime. The good? The atmosphere and decor are pleasing, and the service was outstanding. We were celebrating an anniversary, and the staff made the experience memorable including rose petals and a specially signed desert. The food overall was great. My lobster bisque with a corn fritter was outstanding, and the chocolate peanut butter pie was the best desert I have ever experienced. My steak was cooked perfectly. The flaw? the two vegetables with my entree' were very sub-par for an upscale dinning experience. Haricot Verts were slightly under cooked and bland. The potatoes were thin, tasked like instant!

    We were a party of four doing Restaurant Week dinner on Monday night! Two of us did the Restaurant Week menu for Lobster bisque, Chilean Sea bass, and Carrot cake. Excellent value and high quality offering! We also ordered many appetizers and we loved them all! Ocean Prime has many Excellent appetizer dishes, all are excellent! The service was outstanding, worthy to be a 5-star restaurant! Ocean Prime reminds me of Eddie V, except it's a bit better! The restaurant had great ambience and gave you a great feeling! The only flaw I could think of is that the tables may be cramped a bit too close! I definitely consider Ocean Prime a good find and will certainly be back again for more!

    We had a table of five and found the dining room to be very busy but not loud or disruptive to conversation. The black sea bass was perfectly cooked and seasoned. The lobster bisque was very tasty as well as their signature desserts. It's rare to have a perfect dining experience but Ocean Prime exceeded our expectations. We will definitely return.
