    We have been to Ocean Prime many times and it never disappoints. Very easy spot to get in and out of for a professional lunch. Really like the complimentary valet service (of course always tip anyway). Service was excellent and window seats upstairs are hard to beat. We had the blackened salmon special and it was wonderful. On weekends, it's tough to get in, so need to make reservations early. Grab a drink at the bar and then head upstairs to dinner. You won't be disappointed!

    We have gone here a few times now and love the food. But what made it an amazing experience was our waiter Dennis. The sad part is he is moving to the ocean prime in SoCal. We have had a couple other waiters but we're nowhere near how Dennis is treated us. Try the sea bass and jalapeño Au gratin , it's amazing

    Dined on 9/21/2014
    I took my brother and sister-in-law to a Sunday meal on their 30th anniversary. Our bottle of wine was half-price, there was a 3-course prix fixe dinner at $40, and the house threw in some complimentary champagne. This is a very good value. The waiter politely but persistently tried to persuade us to venture off the prix fixe selections. The half stuffed lobster was tasty. I plan to return to Ocean Prime.

    We had a great experience for our anniversary. The staff were very welcoming from the start of the evening and Paul our waiter was excellent. The food was outstanding and the signature sea bass was to die for. We had theater tickets for later and Paul made sure we received our food in time to make our show.

    Another lovely dinner on the patio at Ocean Prime. This was a pre-theater dinner and we had plenty of time to enjoy our meal before heading off to our show. Service was a little spotty, sometimes our waitperson was around our table a lot, and then lots of time would go by and we wouldn't see her at all. Ahu tuna tartare is amazing, as is the goat cheese ravioli and the signature salad. They had a Sunday dinner special for $39 - 1st course, stuffed lobster and dessert. Great deal and it was amazing. Scallops were delicious and the lobster tail was sweet, tender and cooked perfectly. Chocolate peanut butter mousse = amazing!! Our second time in the last couple of months and we will be back!!

    I am a foodie and was really looking forward to this restaurant but left very disappointed. The bread at the beginning of the meal was so hard I thought I was going to break a tooth. I got the halibut and it was bland. The drinks were watered down. I won't be going back there.

    I will never be able to appreciate another steak after eating at Ocean Prime. The filet mignon was perfectly crusted and salty on the outside and juicy and tender on the inside. It was to die for. The Lobster Mashed Potatoes are heavenly. Great wine list and the servers are knowledgeable. Great staff, they are personable and kind without being intrusive. You are made to feel truly appreciated from the second you walk in the door to the moment you leave. New favorite in Denver.

    We have been to Ocean Prime before and enjoyed it. However, this time we celebrated our anniversary and the staff at Ocean Prime treated us like royalty!! Everyone wish us Happy Anniversary and we were treated to a glass of champagne and dessert. Thank you so much to everyone at Ocean Prime for making this a very special dinner for us. We would highly recommend Ocean Prime for dinner or a special occasion.

    Had to ask for window seat after calling ahead for one. We went at 5:30 and they were hesitant in giving us the window table despite there being five open. A steak was suggested by the waitress and it came to us overdone. We sent it back and when they returned it was cooked better, but it was very chewy. Ordered the filet instead but still not up to par compared to other high end steak places. We have visited this restaurant several times and have good experiences in the past, but this visit was a disappointment.

    Our server Patrick made it an experience to remember. The three ladies that I brought with me had not experienced such an excellent restaurant. The cost being a factor. The only complaint, was that the table was too small for everything that we ordered. We will do it again, just not for a while. The bubbles & berries drink was a major hit. Thanks again for a pleasant evening.

    We ordered off the restaurant week menu. Both of us had their house salads, which were very good. I had the salmon and my husband had the filet. Both were excellent. Can't wait to come back again. We were seated next to the window so were able to overlook larimer street. That was kind of fun.

    This was our first time at Ocean Prime while enjoying the new and improved Restaurant Week in August. Even though this is a crazy time for restaurants and food and service wane, this was not the case at Ocean Prime. My husband and I split a salad and then both had the Salmon with Teriyaki and Sticky Rice. The piece of salmon was a nice serving size and was so fresh that it melted in our mouths. The teriyaki glaze was just the right amount of sweet and spicy. One of the most delicious salmon dishes we have ever had and we eat a lot of salmon. The dinner was finished off by either Sorbet or 5-Layer Carrot Cake. The Carrot Cake was quite dry but would try again. If the main course was this good during Restaurant Week, we will be back!

    We went here for Restaurant week and were thrilled we had chosen Ocean Prime. Our service was exceptional and very friendly. They gave us a table by the window overlooking Larimer which was fun. For dinner we chose the teriyaki salmon and the filet with Cabernet jus. Both exceeded our expectations with their wonderful seasonings and sauces. Their French onion soup was perfect, in fact the best I've had, not too salty. I would go here again and highly recommend it!
