Ocean Prime - Indianapolis
Birthday TreatWe were completely satisfied at Ocean Prime, Indianapolis. The menu was extensive and the servers pleasant and knowledgeable. The kitchen was backed up a bit but that was not a problem for we had no further commitment.
A frequent complaint of ours, wherever we seem to dine, is the cavalier dress code of the patrons. I know there is little the restaurants can do about this, but OP is a nice table cloth restaurant with ambiance. Patrons in tee shirts just don't fit the image. There was one such person there, and he was not a teen ager and should have known better.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchWent for Mothers Day Brunch with our family. Food was great and the chef did some special preparation upon request for our family which was appreciated.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's DayThe food and service was good. I would like to see more options for Brunch but other than that I would go back.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was outstanding andThe food was outstanding and the ambience was very attractive and comfortable but the seating is higher density that I expected at a restaurant of this quality. While the service was top drawer it was a bit overbearing (too attentive - gives you that hurry up feeling). However, I still highly recommend Ocean Prime since the food selection and quality is superb.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Mother's DayThe atmosphere was wonderful. The service was outstanding. The food was great.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers Day BrunchWe were seated first at a table directly in front of the kitchen door, we passed on this option. Then we were seated out on the covered terrace. It's really nice, large fire place, bar, a few tv's and a good view. Mom ordered the "prime feature" (2 bacon wrapped twin filets) and twice baked potato (it's huge...2-3 ppl could easily share). I opted for the quiche (there) and crabcakes, truffle mac & chz (to go). The quiche was delicious and savory, not too pretty to look at but the taste is fabulous. I could've had another slice. I tasted the crabcakes prior to leaving....good but a little loose and very light brown for me. Upon reheating in oven later that evening they were perfect. Also recommend the blood orange mimosa.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and excellent service.Great food and excellent service. $$$$. But worth it for special occasion. Lovely drink specials and wine list5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe entire experience at OceanThe entire experience at Ocean Prime was wonderful! Our server was excellent!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second time weThis is the second time we have eaten here. The first time we both got steaks and they were excellent. This time my wife got a NY Strip and I got the salmon. Her steak was again excellent. The salmon was cooked well but had little taste. Was that sugar on top? I get salmon out alot, but it is normally grilled. Maybe optional choices on how it is cooked. I won't get the salmon again. I will stick with the steak again next time.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGood but not fabulous/at this price range, I would expect extraordinary food. This was good, but not to die for.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPrime Time DiningExcellent food combined with top notch service and a classic decor makes Ocean Prime a great place for a special occasion, business meal, or simply a gathering of friends. There were only positives to the experience. A must try fine dining opportunity.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst DateVery nice meal out on the patio.

We were celebrating a special occasion and the staff made sure to make us feel very special that evening.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMmay 5 2013The service is excellent! The server explains menu items to a T! Our server gave us just the right amount of attention! The sea bass and yellow fin tuna are the best in indianapolis!! 10 layer carrot cake no words to explain.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMNot what you should demandFood, cocktails and service were very good. We were not happy to be seated in an area that doubles as a patio in better weather. Right off the bar, a little noisy and ambiance not befitting the price. We may not return.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMJust As Good The Second TimeWent back to Ocean Prime, this time with some friends (first visit was surprisingly excellent). It did not disappoint; my friends were huge fans of the food, alcohol, and wine selections. I started off with a Moscow Mule in a copper mug (fun drink). Tuna tartare for app, tuna with pate for main course, and carrot cake for dessert - all excellent. Friends loved the wine selections. Will be back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversaryOur first visit to Ocean Prime was to celebrate our 39th anniversary and we were very pleased with the experience.

The service was outstanding and the food was very impressive--we will definitely return. My only negative--wine by the glass is a bit pricey--but comparable to other like restaurants.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have been to many niceWe have been to many nice steak and seafood restaurants, but we thought the filet at OP was best. Well prepared, not burnt. The au gratin potatoes are special. We enjoyed the experience very much.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe dines at Ocean Prime asWe dines at Ocean Prime as a family to celebrate my wife's birthday. While the service was outstanding in the beginning, we felt neglected halfway through dinner. It was busy and maybe service decline if they were short staffed. Great restaurant, just wish our service was better for the price we paid for dinner.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything at ocean primeEverything at ocean prime is AMAZING!! It was so good that we went back the very next day to eat again! Everything we have tried has been incredible. The surf and turf appetizer is to die for, and the bacon wrapped filets are fantastic. The crab cakes, fondue, and pork porterhouse are also great...as is dessert. The peant butter pie is yummy.
My fiance and I eat at fine dining places in Indy all the time, and Ocean Prime is by far the best in Indy. There menu is great, the service is excellent, and the decor is very modern. Great for a romantic dinner or nice night out with friends or family. Really, really good...a must try!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMnice service from William,nice service from William, I think.

My husband and I go whenever we have something to celebrate. Our favorite server is Terrence.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMAll of the food was reallyAll of the food was really good except the steak. I did not fgeel that the ribeye was a $44 piece of meat. Had better steak elsewhere. However, the side dishes, salad and bread made up for it.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent. DeliveryFood was excellent. Delivery of food was a little slow - think there were some other large parties dining at the same time. Otherwise excellent all the way around.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom 4/19/13 in Indianapolis, INWe had a n easy time making reservations for 4 at Ocean Prime in Indy. Once there we enjoyed a couple bottles of good wine with our meals. Servings were generous and At least one of us brought some home for the next day. Tables were just slightly small and crowded together such that the servers had to wind their way around several other tables to get to us. This did not affect the quality of the service, courtesy of the servers, or detract from the overall experience, but it was mildly noticeable. We would go back again and the ease of making the reservation made it that much more of a fun evening for all of us.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWas our second visit and itWas our second visit and it was just as good as first time. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and staff took very good care of us including complimentary champagne and dessert (which we split). Our server was John and he was very very knowledeable and attentive. We never felt rushed. Everything was just right. Keep up the good work.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceWe went to Ocean Prime for my sons 13th birthday. We were greeted promptly with a Happy Birthday from the hostess and seated. The servers, Angela and Emmanuel, were exceptional in knowledge and service. Everyone, including the manager made the visit ! F4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMac and Cheese PleaseOur second trip to Ocean and oddly enough we were seated at the same table and had the same waiter. Tarrence was fantastic, very friendly and helpful. We both had fish, the salmon and the red snapper. They were both excellent and represent the best seafood in Indianapolis. For me, the star was the black truffle mac and cheese. Far and away the best mac and cheese ever. This is definitely a special occasion restaurant for us and we can't wait for another excuse to go.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent special occasion choice!Celebrating our anniversary at Ocean Prime could not have been more special. From the complimentary glass of champagne soon after we were seated to the complimentary dessert at the end of an amazing meal, we were treated to top-notch service by John and all the other staff members who came by to wish us a happy anniversary or see if we had what we needed. The seared tuna and the scallops were our entree choices; both were superb. The chocolate peanut butter mousse dessert was decadently rich but worth the extra calories. It was our first visit but will definitely not be our last. This is the perfect choice to mark a special occasion or just have a romantic evening meal.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFine Dining at its BEST!I loved the elegant atmosphere and environment of this place! The staff was very attentive throughout the evening and we were encouraged to take our time, relax, and enjoy. The food was beyond superb. Our waiter educated my guest and me on the chef's recommendations and wine choices. I will return to Ocean Prime as often as possible - it has become my new "favorite"!!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur overall experence wasOur overall experence was very pleasent.

Our kids gave us a gift certificate and we are adding this place to our list of favorites for special occasions.

The service is top notch and then there is the food! Our brunch meal was the best we have ever had. We have also had dinner there and both times did NOT disappoint.
