Diner Reviews
  • "I'll start by saying that nothing about this restaurant was bad, other than a couple cocktails I received (which I sent back). I took my girlfriend there for her birthday as she had requested seafood. Overall the service was attentive and quite good. It took a little longer than it should have to receive some courses. Blame placed on a very large group that came in just ahead of us. Acceptable. Out of 3 cocktails ordered, only one was passable. My Negroni was even butchered. Both of us had fish entrees, and they were good, well-cooked, and fairly simple. There's not a lot of creativity going on here, so don't come looking for that. Considering the price, and the value I feel like I received, I think I'll look elsewhere."

  • "Service was excellent from the minute we entered the restaurant - our reserved table was ready and the staff recognized that we had an elderly guest who would benefit from the use of an elevator. Tom, our server, was incredible - he even arranged for a showy non-alcoholic cocktail for our designated driver! Those who ordered steak were very pleased with their selections - those of us who had seafood found them tinged with a fishy aftertaste - especially the lobster adorning the Halibut. So turf was the better option. But the desserts were fabulous and the attentive service and overall ambiance and gorgeous decor make this a special spot to dine and entertain guests."

  • "I made resv's to Ocean Prime for Dinner Al Fresco over a month in advance. When we got there the hostess said they only had room inside. I said, no way, the whole reason we came here was to enjoy outside as part of the Al Fresco experience. After a few minutes of moving things around, we were seated to a great table outside. Heather, the GM, quickly came out to introduce herself and gave us her card. We ordered dinner and apps, about 30 minutes later our server said they were out of the scallops I ordered! I had my mind and taste buds zero'd in on those for 4 weeks, bummer! A seafood restaurant out of a menu staple on an important event?! They comp'd my dinner and dessert. Even though we had those issues, I'll be back-awesome staff/food!"

  • "My wife and I really looked forward to having dinner at Ocean Prime. We rented a limo for a night out downtown, and brought along our closest friends. Therefore, it was extremely disappointing when the service and food were mediocre. It took 30 minutes to get a drink after we were seated; and when the dinner was served, the portions were ridiculously small. The halibut, one of the more expensive items on the menu, was terrible and heavily laden in salt. The only think reasonable good was the small filet. All of this at a hefty price."

  • "I had the scallops and my husband had the halibut. Both were delicious and very fresh. We ate outside on the patio with the gorgeous summer flowers looking out onto Larimer. Great place for people watching!"

  • "We visit Ocean Prime every year for our anniversary and we love it. This year we have decided to visit every Ocean Prime location across the US. The Chilean Sea Bass is most excellent! The whipped potatoes with that champagne truffle sauce compliment the fish and it all just melts in your mouth. We also had the crab cocktail and it was so smooth and felt wonderful in our mouths. We kept trying to figure out how it was cooked. The crab cakes are superb. Make sure you have plenty of money because Ocean Prime is not cheap in any way but it's worth every penny"

  • "We have been to Ocean Prime many times and it is always wonderful.Got there a little early so that our group could enjoy a cocktail at the bar, it was lucky to find a seat for four, they had a piano player who was very good and set the mood for a great night . The wait staff is very professional and helpful when picking out frankly anything on the menu. They take the dining experience very seriously and will do whatever they can to please .We started with the chopped salads and onion soup , followed by steaks & the stripped bass. All very well prepared and Delicious. The wine list is impressive and they have many choices by the glass .dont forget the carrot cake or peanut butter cake both worth the calories . We will be back !"

  • "What an amazing experience! They exceeded every expectation and accommodated my special request. My date was completely impressed by the entire evening and the food was exquisite! Claire our waitress was equally impressive and made the night great with her knowledge and recommendations. I highly recommend Ocean Prime anytime for any type of occasion!"

  • "Too expensive for the quality! Had to ask for my steak to be cooked again as it was over done.. all sides were an extra 10$ on top of a 40$ steak!"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "One of the most delicious and flavorful meals I've ever had. The scallops were cooked to absolute perfection, Chilean sea bass was fresh and flakey, and the roasted garlic potatoes positively melted in my mouth. The servers were polite and accommodating, the manager personally apologized to us for making us wait a little longer to sit on the veranda, and the atmosphere was intimate, romantic and beautiful. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants to experience true fine dining."

  • "What an overpriced disappointment! Calamari great. I had a filet cooked perfectly but served on a warm, not hot, plate. The side of béarnaise, $3.00, was served in a small aluminum butter cup. I also ordered a salt encrusted baked potato. Salt on one side. The internal temperature as cold in one area and lukewarm in another. I sent it back, and the pompous manager returned it to the table when I was almost through with my steak. He placed the sour cream and butter in two separate small cups...as if I don't know that they are served cold? It wasn't the toppings it was the internal temperature of the potato that was off. My wife had the halibut. $44 for a small cut on a stingy bed of bland nyoki. Really a disappointment."

  • "Don't miss the sweet chili calimari, the jalepeno potatoes au gratin, and the cucumber gimlet. Fantastic service! I was able to sample a couple of wines to find just tr right one to accompany my filet minion with au pourvier. Amazing peanut butter pie for dessert. Spendy meal but worth it for the occasional night out."

  • "We are from Buffalo New York and we were visiting Denver for a veterinary convention. It was our 1 year dating anniversary so we decided to try dinner at Ocean Prime because it looked romantic. The dinner was beyond delicious and the service was five star! It truly was an amazing experience that my girlfriend and I will always remember as our very special one year anniversary dinner at Ocean Prime!!!"

  • "My husband and I chose Ocean Prime as a nice evening to close out a busy conference weekend. While the ambiance and food were great, the service was less than impressive considering the caliber of restaurant. It took quite a while for a server to acknowledge our presence on the patio, while other tables were being well taken care of, and we seemed to be a hindrance. Once our orders were finally taken, she only came back to the table twice-- and once was at our request to get the bill after waiting 15 minutes once out dishes were cleared! I would definitely recommend Ocean Prime as a must try restaurant for anyone staying in Denver, but I would hope that the service drastically improves."

  • "From the moment I arrived I was impressed by the friendly and attentive staff, quality of ingredients, preparation by the chef, eagerness to make our dinner as exceptional as they could. The Kansas City steak was bar none the best I had ever eaten anywhere. Prepared to perfection of prime Colorado aged beef. My sister wanted a particular fish that no longer is on the menu. The response from the staff was to send somebody to the distributor to pick some up and prepare it for her. Fresh and perfectly prepared and she also confirmed the best she ever had. In my 53 years I never experienced service whereby they went out of there way to go get the fish she expected and wanted. Amazing. Appetizers, wine, desserts were equally amazing."

  • "Ocean Prime is one of our favorites! Rarely a disappointment! From the "Smoking" Shellfish Tower appetizer, my entree dish of Yellowfin Tuna, side dish favorites included Sauteed Mushrooms, Brussel Spouts, Truffle Mac-n-Cheese, and don't tell my trainer...we splurged on the 10 Layer Carrot Cake. YUMMMMMM."

I had the scallops and risotto. Delicious! One of our party had the filet. She said is was one of the best steaks she has ever had."
