    We went for my 29th birthday! We we made reservations but got sat 15 min earlier! Service was very print! We has Chilean Seabass and another type of fish! Excellent! The blueberries and bubbles cocktail was fun and yummy! The chocolate peanutbutter pie was amazing! Def a little more pricey that what we usually do but glad to say I have experienced it!

    Food is fantastic and the ambiance and feel of the restaurant is great. What really set this apart from any other night out was the service. From the valet to the hostess everyone was wonderful. Our waiter was simply the best I have ever had. Friendly, outgoing and knowledgeable. I felt like we had know him for years. The flow of the evening was perfect . In a word......OUTSTANDING.

    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.

I ended up getting a glass of wine, salad, and surf n' turf appetizer, plenty! I also shared the carrot cake dessert with my group. I would return for a special occasion, however I was disappointed by the waitress, she was particularly unfriendly.

    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.
