Diner Reviews
  • "We waited over 15 minutes for our waitress to appear - although we were provided almost immediately with water and a basket of bread. Our waitress mixed up our salad order. We ordered the lobster special and had to ask for crackers for the claws. We never did receive appropriate forks. She did stop back to inquire about our food etc., but actually did not stop long enough for us to make any comment."

  • "Our server, Darren, was terrific. Would request him on next visit. Food excellent, tho I thought my blackened snapper was a bit bland."

  • "We came in Friday night for dessert and sat in the lounge for dinner. We didn't know there was live music so that was a nice surprise. Our server was very attentive. Great host-server communication because we were immediately give 2 glasses of champagne at our table. The food was amazing! We ordered oysters on the half shell to start, then had teriyaki salmon, and sea scallops. Later he treated us to dessert for another anniversary surprise! We were too full so he boxed it up for us. Overall we had a great time. This was our first time but we will be back! Thanks again!"

  • "Lovely restaurant. Tim, our waiter was the first " professional" waiter we have experienced since we have been dining our way across Indy. He knew the ingredients, and preparation, of all the dishes we inquired about while suggesting slight changes to accommodate dietary needs. His wine suggestions were spot on. The food was Wonderful and prepared to perfection. Husband voted it the best restaurant in Indianapolis."

  • "Had high expectations when I made week in advance reservations announcing we would be celebrating our 32nd wedding anniversary. Upon arrival, nice welcome but request for outdoor patio seating was denied due to lingering guests! Being starved, we accepted booth in bar--big mistake! Server was too busy and we were ignored for nearly 10 minutes! Got up to leave and told hostess we were extremely disappointed.. She immediately summoned manager WILLIAM, who took control and turned around the entire evening by getting us seated on the patio and making DARREN our server! From then on, service was impeccable and food extremely delicious. GM ALEX stopped by to insure our satisfaction as well. All's well that ends well. We shall return!"

  • "The food was great. The food was hot and the dessert was just awesome. The peanut butter dessert is a must try. The service was a bit slow for the head waiter. We had to ask for drink refills twice. He would often forget items we had asked for. (i.e. sweetner...glass of ice...wine glass)"

  • "We both ordered different fish (halibut and Chilean sea bass)...they has same seasoning (tasted like Old Bay). So fish tasted same despite different entrees. Menu makes it sound like there are aidwa (lobster gnocchi)....they r "garnish" as the waiter warned. He was not joking. There were 2 tiny pieces of gnocchi. The lobster bisque was mediocre. My dirty martini tasted watered-down....fish was $40+ Each. Not the quality/uniqueness of fine dining we expect."

  • "We have switched our anniversary dinner to Ocean Prime for the secound year now and its likely to become our tradition. Sullivan's is still a fine restaurant but Ocean Prime has taken over as our first choice. Wish we could enjoy dining there more often. Jeromey and the entire staff were very enjoyable with just the right amount of attention!The food items were all imaginative and impressive as well as delicious. Thnaks !

  • "We were visiting Indy and found this place on Open Table. We were very happy with our experience. They have a very nice outside bar and eating area. High & low tables. They even have some cozy couches. The inside dining area seemed a bit stuffy so we opted for the outdoor patio. A little more relaxed atmosphere. We tried the filet mignon and the salmon. Everything was cooked to perfection. They had a nice gluten free menu and the waiter was very helpful. Their wine list was good too! We would definitely go back again!"

  • "From entering to leaving 5 stars across the board. Our server jermey was knowledgeable about the menu and the wine list. The Kansas City strip was perfectly cooked and you can taste the dry age. Try the tuna appetizer, calamari, appetizer, and the blackened snapper. All in all, it was fantastic."

  • "We had a great evening here to celebrate our anniversary. We were greeted with flutes of champagne and were congratulated by everyone who came to our table. They did a great job of making it feel special. All the food was great, but we especially loved the desert. We had peanut butter pie, and it was amazing! It was large enough to split, and very rich. We ordered Chilean Sea Bass and Scallops for our entrees, and we were very pleased with their freshness and flavor. We would definitely come back to Ocean Prime!"

  • "The blacken snapper and side of ratatouille were great. If you decanter your wine, let the waiter serve it. I made quite a mess. The martinis could have had something to do with it"

  • "We recently visited Ocean Prime and while the service was exceptional, the food was disappointing for the price. Definitely recommend the crab cake appetizer, which was outstanding, and the house salad is a superb combination of greens, fruit, nuts and a house-made dressing. Our main courses were disappointing, as the terryaki salmon was prepared well, but not outstanding flavors as you might expect. The Chilean Sea Bass (which was recommended by the server and highlighted here), required a knife to cut as it was overcooked, and even my wife felt the flavor was definitely "missing something." Didn't live up to our expectations as a seafood desitnation. . ."

  • "We chose Ocean Prime to celebrate our son's 24th birthday because we had been given a gift card to this restaurant. It was a truly amazing experience. The Alaskan halibut dish is one of the best I have ever had and I order halibut wherever I find it on the menu. My husband was thoroughly pleased with the sea scallops and our son had the sea bass, which was also outstanding. The service was also top notch. It is a little pricey, but it was worth it!"

The food was expertly prepared....best onion soup ever! Crab cakes and Halibut as entrees were excellent...service was top notch....definitely a "go to" restaurant when you want to make sure you and your guests are "WoWed!""

  • "We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary at Ocean Prime. It felt like they were celebrating with us! Complimentary champagne and desert along with excellent service. Our server knew evey detail of the menu and approproaue wine choice. Our dicsussion about what to select was fun an fully informed. The food was impecibly prepared and presented. Every bite from bread to salad to entree to desert was fantastic. We ate in the semi-outdoor dining area. It was enclosed on 3 sides with shrubs on the 4th side. We're not big on eating totally outdoors so this was perfect. Just enough breeze, fresh air, and ambiance. This is our new favorite resutaurant!"

  • "This was our first visit to Ocean Prime after a friend's recommendation. We will not be coming back. Although our waiter was very nice, we could barely understand him. A side order did not come. My filet was delicious but my husband's ribeye had no flavor. Our waiter comped us the carrot cake for dessert & it was delicious. But, overall, not a good experience."
