    This is the 4th time I've been to Ocean Prime. The first 3 times I had no complaints. I ordered seafood the first 3 times though. This time I ordered steak, and it was way overcooked. I had to send it back, so my date ate her dinner without me. They returned my steak, and it was cooked fine, but my date had basically already finished her meal. The manager did not comp the steak either, which from my experience generally happens when you have to send a dish a back. Very cool spot, food and service bit suspect.

    We had our anniversary dinner here and it was amazing! We've been to many of the high-end restaurants in the city, but the overall service and food were the best we've had, period! We were greeted with a "Happy Anniversary", and taken to a quiet area with a large booth. Perfect for the occasion. The service provided by "Darren" was exceptional. He was knowledgeable about the menu, friendly, and attentive. He was there when we needed him, and not there when we were having conversation. Bottom line, he was great!!! The food was phenomenal! We had steaks, and they were perfectly cooked; a little char on top, but nice and pink in the middle. The sides were great as well! To top it off, the desert was amazing!! Bottom line, we'll be back!

    You don't always find a restaurant that is good a preparing both seafood and meat, but Ocean Prime has mastered it! Our party of four had a varied selection from the menu and everything was excellent. The service was impeccable. This is my second visit to Ocean Prime, and is rising quickly to the top of my favorites list.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!
