The upon arrival complimentary glasses of champagne were wonderful as was the food and our server, Bree. We hope to make it an annual tradition! Thank you.

They made it an evening to remember, topped off by complimentary champagne and dessert (on which they had happy anniversary written in chocolate drizzle around the edge of the plate).

    One of our dining group has gluten and onion issues. This restaurant worked hard to accommodate our companion's choices. We get together once a month to eat and some places won't even take a reservation when they hear that she has special needs. All the other food was well prepared, presented and served. We felt like we were fed efficiently but not pushed. We'll definitely go back.

    We arrived slightly before our reservation time of 9pm. We were seated promptly at a tiny table in a tight spot. After maybe a minute and a half our waiter told us a booth had opened up and asked if we would like to move (we had not requested this and I was very impressed!) We were seated at a comfortable booth where we my husband and I had extra space and could hear each other. I was delighted! Our server Val was wonderful! We had the calamari, lump crab cakes, salmon, parmesan truffle fries, and black truffle mac and cheese. Everything was extraordinary, but my favorite thing was the calamari. I've lived on the gulf coast for years and it was the best calamari I've ever tasted!

    I have wanted to try Ocean Prime for a long time, but heard it was expensive and noisy. Yes, it is expensive, but no more than any other upscale restaurant that serves quality food and offers a great dining experience. I called about the noise issue, and the host said she' make sure we were seated at a quieter table. She honored our request, and sat us upstairs in the veranda. From our table you could see the lights and action on Larimer. It was a very cold night, and being next to windows could have been drafty, but they have wonderful overhead heaters which kept us toasty. I had the striped Sea Bass, which was moist and flavorful. My husband had the king salmon, which had a wonderful crispy crust,but perfectly cooked inside. He also had a crab cake which was excellent. My house salad was underwhelming. They should make this a bit more tasty and fun. We also shared a twice baked potato, which was just ordinary. Our server was excellent and noticed it was my birthday. At the end of the meal I was told to order anything for dessert, on the house, and I had the Key Lime Pie, and we both had excellent French Press decaf to warm us up for the drive home. They also have a great wine list.

    Party of 3: Sunday eve. Dimly lit dining room, fairly busy for a Sunday, but private enough in our booth. Wait staff was knowledgeable about the menu as well as wine pairings. Our waiter was good, not great, but good. The food however, was simply amazing! Not one thing on our table that was not absolutely fabulous! Filet cooked perfectly, bearnaise sauce was out of this world, brussel sprouts could have been my dessert, lobster mashed potatoes are a must have, pork chop (HOLY PORK CHOP!), ravioli appetizer & lemon berry cheesecake for dessert!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    The restaurant was beautiful and the service was great. We were disappointed with the quality of our steak. Mine was a rib eye and VERY fatty. The way it was prepared, you couldn't see the steak to cut out the fat, but then, for a $48.00 steak, you would think it would be of better quality. The price was fair for the type of restaurant, but everyone in my party was not impressed with the quality or taste of their meal. We were looking at possibly having our company's Christmas party there, but after that experience, we will keep looking.

Served to perfection without any sauces and it was tender and so delicious! They had pomegranate sorbet and it was a perfect way to end the meal. Would come back here again!

    I went here for lunch and a week later took 4 friends there for dinner. The lunch server was amazing - best ever. Dinner - server was stiff, efficient, earned his tip but I didn't care for his stiffness. Food great both times. They found us a quite table so we were able to have conversation, something increasingly rare in a resturant. Downstairs there were area for people who like it more lively. So many winners.

    Erin our server was delightful. Also very friendly valets! The scallops were very good, my dining partners enjoyed the lobster, steak and Chilean Sea bass. The bread was warm and delicious. The sides were plentiful-we had the bruselll sprouts, corn (not very exciting) and the yummy scalloped potatoes. Great wine list by the glass. The only complaint-the hostess wanted to seat us in a terrible location -booth by all the traffic-and the restaurant was not half full. We asked for a table by the window and was given the option to do so. I find this with other restaurants-when dining with women they tend to try and seat women in the least favorable place.

    Excellent seafood prepared perfectly with the ambiance and service expected in the finest steakhouse. The wedge salad was one of the best we've had. The jalapeno au gratin potatoes were delicious. The salmon with lobster gnocchi was outstanding and the crab cakes were very good, although the accompanying sweet corn cream slightly overpowered the succulent crab. The cocktail menu was creative and drinks well-prepared. The chocolate peanut-butter pie was sized for sharing and a perfect ending to the meal. Best decaf coffee I've had in ages! Service was impeccable from accommodating a special request for seating to attentive check-ins during the meal and ending with appropriate birthday attention. One of Denver's best dining options!

We had a crab cake appetizer which was wonderful. Everyone was so nice, wishing us a happy anniversary. They even comped the dessert! We had a table by the window with a great view of denver.

    We recently went to OP in Denver to celebrate and old friends visit and had a great view upstairs looking down to Larimer Street. As usual, the service was fantastic and we were well taken care of. The problem was the food freshness but if this was my first visit, I would not return. Our friend had a beautiful big steak and it was spot on as far as he was concerned. My wife had the Sea Bass an all-time favorite due to its buttery texture and rich flavor and she stated that it was quite fishy. I sampled and thought the same. I had a Salmon dish topped with Lobster and the lobster tasted like the gutter. The salmon was quite tasty. The bread is/was fantastic! The wait staff always attentive but not bothersome.
