    Food was excellent and well presented. Service was not so good. OK in the beginning and then very slow. They have lots of employees around by not very good attention. Shouldn't have to wait 20 minutes for dessert and another for the check.

    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!

    Our first visit here. Food, surroundings, service were all very good and appropriately priced (a high-end place). However, the whole experience was rather lacking in the "personal" feeling. One got the feeling that all was business as usual, as with any multiple-location high-end chain. We could have been at any similar quality steak and seafood restaurant anywhere in the U.S., left satisfied, but never remembering which one we were at. In a city like Denver (and with the foodie town of Boulder nearby), there are so many great & memorable establishments, that there is no particular reason to return here. Well worth trying, and certainly fine for some special celebration.

    We took advantage of restaurant week here. None of the four of us had been to Ocean Prime before and we were all impressed.Very nice ambiance and atmosphere The waiter, Paul, and help staff were superb. We all had Cesar salad; large and very good. I had teriyaki salmon and the others had filet mignon. Notably, the dishes were served pipping hot and prepared perfectly. The steaks were accompanied by Haricot Verts, my salmon was not and I felt like I missed out. The only real draw back was that a party of about 10-12 were seated next to us and were quite loud. The room in the restaurant in which we were seated had few tables and was intimate. It seems that that party should have been seated privately or elsewhere.

    I work at a steak & seafood house, and have for years so I'm picky when choosing one to go to. Everything was excellent. We started with happy hour drinks on the patio. Everything was great, and we decided to go ahead and have dinner outside as well instead of moving into the restaurant. The server was friendly and attentive. (She was training someone also). We had the crab cake to start which is my favorite in town. Then we all did the 5280 menu. I had the filet Oscar style. It was cooked perfectly and there were big pieces of crab with the Oscar. I was pleasantly surprised with the portion sizes for 5280. My friend's steaks were slightly overcooked, but other than that everything was amazing. We will definitely return.

    Me and my wife went to this restaurant as part of the Denver restaurant week. We made reservations and came a bit early. Got seated within 5 minutes. Main dining hall looks very nice. Our server was quick and very attentive. From fixed menu we tried chicken with shrimp scampi on a side and filet mignon with crab (it was seafood place afterall). Food was awesome including salads and desert. For desert we took carrot cake and lemon sorbet. I am no fan of carrot cake usually, but this one was great. It was moist and not heavy. Overall it was great experience. Also their cocktails were very good as well. Did not try wine, but the list looked large.

    We attended the first day of restaurant week. The restaurant is very elegant, clean and modern. The food was fabulous. I ordered the teriyaki salmon; the salmon was a bit burnt. The teriyaki sauce that comes with the dish was light, well balanced and covered most of the burnt salmon taste, but I still would've ate it. I've been to many restaurants and this restaurant by far has the best attention to detail customer service. My date ordered the filet mignon well done, (I like mine medium) anyways our waiter saw that the steak was a bit under cooked and asked if they could grill it a bit more but she was fine with her steak. Overall great restaurant for a special occasion. Yes, I would recommend this restaurant and yes, I would return!

    In my opinion, not worth the time or money to go for Restaurant Week. We couldn't find a Restaurant Week menu so we thought we'd take a chance but joked that they'd probably have a lame menu with salmon. Our worse nightmare was true. You get 3 choices: salmon, chicken or filet minon. At a place called Ocean's Prime. Plus either french onion soup or a tiny salad and strawberry ice cream or carrot cake. The filet came with moderately bland mashed potatoes, a tasty gravy and green beans. I'm sure the beef was worth more than the price of admission but we were hoping for some shrimp cocktail or you know, some other oceanic food.

    Ocean Prime was our first choice to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. Upon our arrival we were greeted with glasses of Champaign and immediately escorted to our requested window table. From that moment forward my wife and I knew we were going to have an evening we would remember. In today’s hectic and challenging business environment it is rare to see a restaurant that excels in so many aspects of quality and attentiveness. Ocean Prime has found that special formula which melds inter-personal communications, quality of product and outstanding service into an experience that represents a caring business ownership, professional service providers and culinary experts into a memorable experience. Thank you. Allen and Cindy

    My husband and I went here on our wedding night after a quiet ceremony with the two of us, a judge, and a photographer. I came in my wedding dress and was congratulated almost immediately. Our server, Carolyn, was so warm and sweet - she brought us champaign to celebrate and offered us a better table with a great view of Larimer. Our drinks and food were delicious and we are still commenting on dinner over a week later. My husband and I are making this our anniversary restaurant, but will definitely not wait until then to dine there again.
