Ocean Prime - Denver
wonderful staffVery professional staff, many smiles, very helpful, good eye contact!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMA shinning star in Larimer SquareThe food and service were excellent. We travelled into downtown Denver for a special Mother's Day lunch, with the idea of trying a restaurant we hadn't been to before. Ocean Prime lived up to the reviews we had read and was a great place for such a special occasion. Service was maybe over done with a lot of staff moving throughout the setting area. Noise level started low but as can be expected, with more people coming in, so did the noise level. The wine list was a little pricey.
Overall the service and food was great!!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressive First VisitFrom the time that we arrived at the restaraunt until exiting everything was superb. Our waiter, Jeff, was top-notch and very attentive to our needs. My wife wasn't happy with the first mimosa and he had the bartender make a fresh one to her liking without any words. The ambience and food were top-notch. Yes, we plan to return for a dinner date.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved our experience! ItWe loved our experience! It was a little crowded around our table but the service was fantastic. Our waiter was exceptional. He made us feel welcome and related to our needs as first time visitors. Our table of six ordered six different entrees to maximize our experience and each one from the 10 ounce boneless filet to the tuna special drew rave reviews. The entire experience from the service to the food was worth every cent and we our planning our return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI watched this resturant beingI watched this resturant being built and finally got a chance to see the interior.

Bar atmosphere was very energetic but our window table upstairs was quiet and private.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMScenic ViewThis is a very elegant place, but with a genuine Lodo feeling. We had a window table on the second floor. it was a beautiful day, the windows were open and, from the second floor, we had a great view of the Lodo scene.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryWe originally made reservations to have dinner at Ocean Prime on our anniversary. Due to a late April snowstorm, we cancelled our reservation and had dinner at home. Twelve days later, we went to dinner at Ocean Prime prior to going to a play. The waiter asked if we were celebrating our anniversary. We explained about the snowstorm and were quite surprised when he brought a delicious baked Alaska with, "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate syrup on the plate. That's great service!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThe food was excellant, the wait staff is first class aka ryan was our waiter and he was fantastic and it has a nice down town view if you get a window seat, I can't say enough about the great time my wife and i had for our 36th wedding anniversary4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!We had an excellent experience from the minute we were greeted by the hostess to the minute we walked out of the restaurant. We were promptly seated and attended to right away. Our waiter, Dennis, was one of the best parts of the night. The drinks were delicious. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable. I can't say enough about our experience. We will absolutely be returning!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!My husband and I visited Ocean Prime to celebrate our first Anniversary.

We were greeted at the doer like old friends (this was our first visit) and throughout the evening it just got better and better! The champagne, oysters, martinis, seabass and dessert were all simply fabulous!!!! The service was superb and all the staff friendly, efficient and professional! Can't wait to go back!! This is a "don't miss" when you're in Denver!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMSTELLARFood was excellent and the staff was super! Highly recommended! We utilized their private dinning area to celebrate my Birthday and Engagement. Our guest were very impressed.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMOnly sit by the windows!The food at this restaurant is superb, but VERY pricey. Be prepared to shell out $100 per person. We went there for 5280 and loved it, so went back for our anniversary with another couple. For 5280 we sat looking over Larimer. Very nice, great ambiance. But when we went back for our anniversary, we sat in the main room and the noise was deafening. We sat at a round table for six and I could barely hear the person sitting across from me. The waiter had to repeat the specials to both sides of the table because we could not hear her. This was a Wednesday night (not even weekend). So when you make a reservation, ask to be seated by the windows. Get the grapefruit margarita!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWhere Fish is still KingWhat a lovely restaurant experience this was. I am a Piscetarian, eating only fish, so finding quality and diversity on a menu is always a little difficult. The 5 items we enjoyed all could have been the stars of most fish restaurants where I live, but at Ocean Prime every course just kept getting better. The wine list is fantastic, if a little overpriced, but what restaurant wine isn't....We had a problem with a table of men who just got out of the Rockies game being very loud and boisterous, so we mentioned this to Rick, our server who let the GM Heather know. She immedialtely made us feel comfortable my moving us to a quiet booth to finish our delightful meal. Even the chef Bill came out ot check on us as well. Fantastic Place!4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMy New Favorite RestaurantGreat food, great service, and a great atmosphere. THe Filet Oscar and Jalapeno Scalloped Potatoes are to die for! Ocean Prime is my new favorite restaurant in Denver. A little pricey, but well worth the money.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOcean Prime has been recommendedOcean Prime has been recommended to me a number of times. Finally got around to trying it.

Would recommend to everyone.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat, but pricy!Good food and atmosphere. Outstanding service. I think it is a little pricy for the overall quality.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMYour service was superb, andYour service was superb, and the food worth every penny. My only criticism is the layout of your tables: we were seated upstairs and the tables are so close together. We could hear everything that was being said to the right and left of us. I understand wanting to serve as many people as possible, but you must also consider our privacy. We picked a high-end spot like Ocean Prime for a romantic dinner, but sitting immediately next to someone cheapened the experience a little bit. It's also loud and crowded ustairs (due to the amount of tables there). Noise and busy crowds are great downstairs by the bar area, but we'd love a better experience upstairs. We visited the Ocean Prime located in Denver,CO.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband, kids and I justMy husband, kids and I just took family who were visiting Denver from out of town to Ocean Prime. We had the best dinner - beautiful views from a small private dining room, fantastic wait staff, amazing food. It was a truly memorable dinner.

Of course the crab benedict was loaded with crab, it's a seafood restaurant. The french toast was equally good, substantial portion of fluffy caramelized bread.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMJust fabulous. Food, service,Just fabulous. Food, service, etc. Best place we have been too in a while.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOn a recent visit, I hopedOn a recent visit, I hoped to entice my daughter to move back to Colorado after college graduation this summer by reminding her that Denver's nightlife has just as much to offer as her west coast haunts. Lodo, Highlands, RiNo, etc. are all humming weekend locals but we chose the original heart of Denver, Larimer Street, to work it's magic. Ensconced behind two stories of glass and neon on the corner of Larimer and 15th, Ocean Prime beckons diners and revelers alike to trip the light fantastic in this art deco, cruise ship inspired beauty. Seafood and steaks are the bill of fare and a sensational dining ambiance is guaranteed. Lively atmosphere and attentive service make Ocean Prime a memorable choice for a night on the town.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMService was superb; waitersService was superb; waiters attentive; assistant manager inquired if we were satisfied and enjoying ourselves. The music didn't fit the scene and we remarked about it and were told that it's a loop of music with the intention of not repeating songs during an entire week. We felt the music was too "hip" for the evening venue.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a winnerHave enjoyed this restaurant many times and it never disappoints. My favorite waitperson, Rob, recognized me and greeted me warmly. A nice feeling! He is always attentive and thoughtful. His wine recommendation for my partner was well paired with her meal and was well received. Will return many more times. Great spot after the theater.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMService was amazing and theyService was amazing and they immediately sat us when we arrived. Our server gave great suggestions of food and wine pairings.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat!Wow. Great food and service. I said it was our 4th anniversary on our open table.com. right when we got there the hostess handed us 2 glasses of champagne on the house.
The tuna Tartar and calamari apps were amazing. My wife ordered the twin lobsters. I ordered the seafood tower app for my dinner. Both were fabulous. I know my tower said market price and I didn't ask... but.... it was $100. I think it would be nice if the waiter would have said something.LOL. the Venetian in Vegas charged $58 and Farraddays steakhouse in blackhawk only $53 with lobster.
Finished off with carrot cake and a peanut butter desert.
Can't wait to go back. One of the best in Denver. Thanks ocean prime.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent! PreparedFood was excellent! Prepared exactly to our specifications.
