Diner Reviews
  • "Ocean Prime never disappoints and this past time was no exception!!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "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."

  • "We had two reasons to celebrate - A friend turned 60 and she also just beat breast cancer. It was a perfect evening! Austin was our waiter and he did an outstanding job. The food was excellent. 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."

  • "Everyone was very attentive and the food was great. Definitely recommend the place even though it is pricey it's great for a special occasion."

  • "Had a great lunch. Very good choice for lunch or dinner in Lodo."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Delicious seafood specials as expected, but my steak was one of the best I've had anywhere. Everyone was happy."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Excellent service and excellent place. The table and the silverware were all very clean. I can't complain about them. The waiter was great and accommodated my requests. However, the prices were a little bit expensive. If the prices are a little bit lower, this will be one of the greatest restaurants in Denver."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Our server John knew so much about how the food was prepared and was so gracious about our friend's special food needs. We will be back. The food was heavenly."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Like this place, especially have had excellent service at the upstairs bar the last 4 or 5 times we were here, staff accommodating to give us the table we like upstairs. A little disappointed in our fish this time, was average."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "So, to make a long story short, the good was great ...even the chocolate cake and coffee. Have not had a bad meal there but it would have been our last due to the service. For the first time ever, our group brought it to the general manager's attention. Her response was wonderful and she was very apologetic. So, we're willing to let it go, and will be back."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "That was the best meal and dining experience I've ever had!!!!!!!! Hands down!!!!!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Went here for a nice meal for two. The staff was attentive and polite. (They could have smiled a little more but i don't know that would have fit the atmosphere) food was great. Would go back."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "This was a perfect choice. I surfed the web looking at several down town Denver restaurants to find the perfect place for a 60th birthday celebration and at the last minute chose Ocean Prime. As a photographer by trade it was the beautiful interior photos that sealed the deal for me. The food was simply delicious, and the presentation and service superb. This will always be a special memory for us as the surprise worked its magic."
    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "The service was excellent and the food was superb but don't expect a quite romantic dinner. The desert menu was underwhelming."
    Dined on 7/15/2014
  • "This was my first time here and cannot say enough about how wonderful an experience it was. Everything from walking in, to the food and wine and especially the staff was impressive. A comfortable and enjoyable experience."
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Classic and delicious seafood and meat for the carnivores, with fairly decadent side dishes and truly awesome crab cakes! Do not go if you are allergic to butter. Great wine list and they have a Sunday night special so you can upgrade your wine substantially."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Service is very good. Decor is nice. For the price, I've had better meals at Elways and Capital Grille."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The name says it: A truly "prime" place to savor the bounty of the ocean ... or sea or bay or river or lake. Outstanding oysters on the half shell: expensive and worth it. Salads that tasted straight from the garden. Fish as fresh, tasty, and succulent as we'd had all year (and we eat fish all year). Service was attentive without hovering. However, if you're looking for sedate & quiet, go elsewhere (we like energy ... even cacophony), as the bar scene downstairs is way loud and the dining room upstairs is only a little less frenetic. If you've got a thing for seafood, don't leave Denver without at least one meal at this Prime provider."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "The food and ambience were awesome, the waiter's attitude was flat. We were celebrating my daughter's 21st birthday and I was hoping for a little enthusiasm from the waiter. When I asked about any kind of special drink that they may have for this type of event, he didn't have any advice at all, just a really bland personality. It took an extraordinarily long time to receive our first round of drinks and the busboys were great at clearing things and refilling water, but the waiter and management never asked how our meals were, they were just really disconnected. For my family this night was a very big deal and we don't usually dine at such high end places, so our expectations were very high and the service just wasn't there."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "I have had business lunches here, casual dinners, and anniversary celebrations. They always have exceptional service and their wine list is great. Try the Waugh Cellars wine - absolutely unbelievable wine."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "We had a wonderful time at Ocean Prime this past week. The food was great (as it always is), the cucumber gimlets were wonderful, but it's the service that really sets it apart. We had Val, our usual guy, take care of us. Val is simply the best server I have ever come across. He's gracious, friendly, professional, and very attentive. Many restaurants have great food and drink (and Ocean Prime is no exception) but few have servers like Val. If you go to Ocean Prime, see if you can get yourself seated in Val's section. He's that good."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "I took a client here for dinner and she is from the East coast. She was impressed with the freshness of the fish, the preparation and the waiter's accommodating us by taking two entrees and dividing them for us on our own plates. Everything was great though the crab cake tasted a little "fishier" than normal. The chocolate peanut butter pie is always wonderful. Great service, great food, great wine. One of my favorite restaurants in Denver."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "Ocean Prime was a very good dining experience. I was not disappointed with the prices or the serving size. I would certainly dine there again."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Waiter was great, food was amazing! Can't wait to go again!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Just a bunch of girls getting drinks and we could not have been more happy with everything. It was a going away party for myself and they gave us a private room, two wonderful waiters, delicious popcorn to snack on, and amazing drinks. I could not have been more pleased with our experience there."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "We went at 5pm on a Monday, so there was no one else there except one other diner. With that being said, you can imagine how surprised I was that service was extremely slow - even to take our order. With all the other great reviews, I have to think we were an exception. Food was great when we finally got it."
    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "We originally planned on their Sunday Special but we found out it was unavailable until the next Sunday but they could see we were quite disappointed so they bent over backwards to make it right for us and not only fixed a special for us but provided us with some surprising extras. The dinner was wonderful and the service was perfect and the manager even came over to greet us. Our table was on the second floor overlooking Larimer street and it was very enjoyable and a great place for people watching!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Great food and all-around atmosphere. We had a crab cake appetizer, Red Snapper, and a NY Strip and all were excellent."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We dine here at least twice a year, for our anniversary and my wife's birthday. I definitely rate Ocean Prime in my top 3 all time favorite resteraunt. 5 star all the way around."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Ward was totally pleased with the experience. He also suggested going to the "Fish Bowl" if we have a party from 6-8 people."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We chose your restaurant after much consideration for our 25 wedding anniversary dinner. We were not disappointed. In fact we were highly impressed. The service was excellent! The server was so good and I regret that I didn't get her name to write it in here. We were treated like royalty. The food was SO GOOD! The take away is that we will be back and we will tell all our friends and family about this great restaurant."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The decor is beautiful and the food was delicious. The streak melted in my mouth and the lobster was fantastic. The staff is extremely attentive and the window seating and outside eating area is great. The only negative thing I would say about this restaurant in that the price per bottle of wine was too high. However the price per glass is a bit more palatable."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Went to Ocean Prime, expecting a delicious meal. Service was good, and staff was attentive. Was seated by a table where the staff dropped off menus, the whole meal we heard the constant bang of menus being dropped. Filet and Chilean Sea Bass were average. Unfortunately, I can name several less expensive restaurants where the food is better. Will not recommend this restaurant."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "I chose Ocean Prime based on other OpenTable reviews as I was looking for a special occasion restaurant that we had not tried before. The reviewer's were correct. The whole experience was upscale but not pretentious. The Chilean Sea Bass and the Scallops were prepared to perfection. We had a selection of oysters from the raw bar which highlighted the flavors of both east and west coast varieties. Our server was Erin and I cannot say enough about her. She assisted with everything from recommending meal choices, wine, and just friendly conversation through the evening. What wonderful service. The desserts and individually served French press coffee is a nice finishing touch"

  • "Much louder than I expected. It was a busy Saturday night but it seemed to take forever to be waited on and served food. We ordered an appetizer which never came and when my wife's food came out (an hour after ordering) it was cold. Felt ignored."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The food was very good, but pricey. It's harder to savor the experience sitting by the constant opening and closing of the kitchen door. Also, it was hard for me to justify spending the same price for a glass of wine as I had two days before paid for a bottle of the very same wine."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Took the wife for our 21st anniversary, we really enjoyed it. The food was great I had the twin lobster tails and my wife had the Yellow fin tuna we were both very satisfied. The Lobster bisque and lobster potatoes will be a constant every time we go there. And we will be going there often"

  • "Great food, great service. Chris was our waiter and his suggestions and service were outstanding. Thanks, we'll be back"

  • "We had a great experience at Ocean Prime in Denver. I'd recommend it to anyone. The service was so good and the food was delicious. Definitely worth every penny!"
