    The service was absolutely atrocious; the server was an idiot, never gave us an overview of menu or special, had to be reminded multiple times by other waiters, double-charged us on 1 item, and was obviously perturbed we did not order wine. It was our anniversary and nothing was ever done to acknowledge it. VERY VERY BAD EXPERIENCE. I have since contacted to manager to let him know.

    We were looking for a great dining experience to celebrate a wedding anniversary and a location close to American Airlines Center to attend a concert. Ocean Prime delivered both! The food was great, the service was excellent, the atmosphere was low-key but elegant, and the noise-level was low, so we could actually converse across a large table. Looking forward to going back again soon!

    Walked in and fell in love with the place, great atmosphere. Nice food selection, great wine selections. Then our waitor showed up it was as if he only wanted to recommend the most expensive of everything. He turned his nose up when we asked for things to be split. If we didn't onder his recommendation he seemed insulted. The food was good, for sure try the jalapeño potatoes To die for! And the peanut butter dessert was amazing

    It seems of late, that authentic quality service is a rare find. Not the case at Ocean Prime. Celebrating a birthday, we chose Ocean Prime based upon a visit to one out of state. They did not let us down. From our initial experience choosing to relax in the bar prior to dinner to our dining, the service staff, seemed so genuinely interested in our enjoying our time. It did not go unappreciated...we continue to recommend Ocean Prime to our friends!! Thank you!

    The restaurant is beautiful. We had the calamari, crab cakes, and the chopped seafood salad. The calamari was by far the best dish we had. I found the other items mediocre and a bit on the salty side. Not what I was expecting. The waiter was nice enough and semi attentive at first; however, my daughter and I could not understand him well when he was describing the different dishes-it was our first visit to this place so we asked about specialities of the house. His accent was really thick and I'm from Houston so waitstaff with latin dialects are common, his however, was challenging. I would try the place again but only the bar area because the singer was amazing and the atmosphere was great.

    Attractive dining room, great bars, server was attentive and knew her stuff. Superb tuna tartare. One dish I love is blackened redfish and this may have been the best I have had (go figure, in a chain). Perfect amount of seasoning, not too salty so the flavor of the fish comes through, perfectly cooked. I'll be back.

    I'm suggesting they change the name, as the prime steaks here are stellar and outshine the seafood. They are also better priced than many of the other steakhouses close by. If the restaurant is full, the clubby booths in the bar are a nice option! Note, the crab cakes and calamari are really good too.

    Ocean Prime is a neighborhood fall back when we don't feel like cooking and are not up for anything more adventuresome. Service is normally fine, the food predictable, and the drinks well poured. But even predictable can have a bad day..... We'll probably go back again, ask for "any server except Stephen", a table that's not hidden and forgotten, and the chance to order entrees before waiting a hour sipping warm drinks and nursing an appetizer. The saddest thing was that all of the tables around us were having similar issues. The manager was roving but seemed unaware or unconcerned.

    Ocean Prime is not the first place you think of as "kid-friendly," but they have an amazing kids menu (think mini filet mignon , awesome homemade fries and fresh lemonade). We were there for my husband's birthday celebration with the kids, and they were treated with the utmost respect by the staff. We went early so as not to bother the late night customers, but it was a wonderful experience and definitely would return with the kiddos.

    First, I was impressed that they had a Gluten Free Menu but also were willing to alter other entrees to meet my needs. I chose the pork chop from the gluten free menu and it was excellent - spices and seasonings interesting. Most of the time gluten free means boring. We were there on a Sunday night rather early and the restaurant was not crowded so hard to make comment on noise. We were in a corner and were able to talk and hear. That is the reason we were eating out. Service was excellent, but, once again, very few diners. All in all a good experience that I intend to repeat.

    Food was very good, but a little pricey. House salad is a gem. My veal chop was cooked perfectly, but the chop was very fatty. Do not recommend the vinagered peppers as part of the veal chop recipe. They were an odd distraction to an otherwise nice preparation. Service was outstanding... attentive, prompt, our server made some great recommendations. Wine list was extensive, but also pricey. Easy to find the same bottle at other high-end Dallas restaurants for tens of dollars less.

    We are foodies with a picky pallet. OP is outstanding! From the mouthwatering prime New York strip to the unbelievable salmon, this place was outstanding at every turn. We were seated early, the wait staff was perfectly timed, the menu selections covered a wide spectrum from beef to seafood. We've dined in high end restaraunts from coast to coast and this place can take a seat at the front of the line. Spoil yourself with a night out at Ocean Prime, it will live up to your every expectation.

    They wait staff really cater to thier guest. The ambiance is very romantic. The food is very appealing, especially the beautiful desserts. The portions are small for a entree, so don't expect a to go box. The tables are a bit crowded in the dining room, so a booth would be a better option. However, a nice place to check off your bucket list if you are in Dallas.
