Diner Reviews
  • "Sea bass was unbelievably bland. But the scallops and short rib appetizer was outstanding. My waiter was busy with a party in a pdr nearby, so I could actually see that he was on the floor, taking care of others. In spite of this, next time in Philadelphia, I think I we I'll try it again."

  • "Ocean Prime was 1 of 3 dining options for the evening. The menu looked appealing and we were very satisfied with the decision. Great service - we sat in the bar area - and food was delicious, perfect portions."

  • "I went to dinner at Ocean Prime for a business dinner. I had never been but my customer suggested it. We both started with a pine fin martini which was delicious. The crab cake appetizer was perfectly done. Two at the table shared oysters which they said were very good and fresh. I had the sea bass for dinner with creamed spinach for the table to share. Everything was fantastic! The sea bass had a truffle champagne sauce and it was amazing. The spinach was also very very good. For dessert we shared the peanut butter pie and it was so light; we thought it would be dense but it was very fluffy! Our server was attentive and fun. We really had a great time! I will go back."

  • "I expected to have a great birthday celebration but the only thing good was the food. The doorman greeted us by stopping us to check out our attire and almost didn't allow one person inside for not being dressed "business casual". Once inside, the hostess was just as rude to my party of 10 by not saying hello. Although we had a 930 reservation, we were not seated until 1042p. During our hour long wait, we saw countless people wearing jeans, sneakers and skin tight mini dresses. We all wondered if they were hassled by the doorman and concluded that they weren't because they had the right skin color (wink). We had bubbles and berries which looked great but taste like cheap liquor. More to add but no characters left. Will never go back"

  • "Initially I was happy with the over all experience. Pros: Wait staff were friendly & attentive. Waiter was knowledgeable & made picking my selection easy. 2 / 3 parts of the meal were great ( highly recommend Blackened Snapper. ) Cons: When asked if I was enjoying my meal waiter rushed off before I could mention I was unhappy with my salad. Mid way thou dinner a group of 4 squeezed into a two seater table next to us. Wait staff allowed them extra chairs leaving a crowed space even more crowded. Which was loud & uncomfortable. Before ending our dinner or being asked if we wanted anything else we were brought the check(due to waiters shift ending). I myself wanted another glass of wine & my date coffee. I found that rude"

  • "Our first experience at this restaurant was a good one. Although the service was a bit spotty...attentive, but mistimed...and the food a bit pricey, the seafood dishes were outstanding. From the very fresh oysters, to the wife's tasty salmon, to my sushi-grade tuna...all of the food was cooked perfectly, and the cuts were very high quality. Also, a nice selection of American "champagnes", and an excellent 40 year port after dinner, made the evening a pleasurable experience...will definitely be returning...."

  • "The food was outstanding. The decor is beautiful. The server was wonderful. The service itself however presented a problem. We had tickets for the orchestra the night we went and missed the first selection due to some slow service. We sat down at 6:10 which should have been more than em ought time to enjoy a meal at a restaurant only 4 blocks north of the Kimmel Center. We didn't get our check until 8:00. I didn't time it, but if I had to guess if say we were waiting on service for at least 30 minutes throughout the meal. What was frustrating was watching parties around us get seated after us, get their food before us, and leave before us. Be sure to get a servers attention."

  • "This is a stunningly beautiful restaurant. But the ambience was marred by the loud, junky music that played. Our server was wonderful. Everything we ordered was well presented and absolutely delicious, but it was too rich, and there were few options for lighter fare."

  • "I would love to say that I liked this restaurant but I can't. The service was excellent, but half way through the meal we found a hair in our crab cake. The waiter and the manager were apologetic and deducted it from the bill, but when the dessert arrived, the silverware given to us was dirty. Therefore the manager was called again and he gave us dessert on the house. The waiter threw the bust boy under the bus for the dirty silverware. We decided to eat with the spoons that we had from our tea and coffee. So as you can see, our experience wasn't a good one, and we were celebrating a 27 year Anniversary."

  • "Crab cake was excellent and the petite fillets were cooked to perfection. The sides of glazed carrots along with truffle fries were very good and the portions were generous. Service was fair, but after the beginning meal service slowed down to the point that our server became harder and harder to find. Only down side, we were seated next to the bar. The noise level was ridiculous. To the point that we could not hear each other due to all the noise pouring out of the bar area. If you go insist on a seat away from the bar or on the second floor."

  • "This was or 7th visit to Ocean Prime, my wife and I try to have a date night once a week we work in center city and there is plenty of great restaurants, but Ocean Prime keeps us coming back at lest once a month. I feel Ocean Prime has raised the bar for an overall fine dinning experience in Philly, great food, service, and ambience check it out you won't be disappointed. We like to request seating on the mezzanine level overlooking the main dinning room and bar. Ocean Prime (sea food and steak) tried both and would say there as good or better then any sea food restaurant, or steak house in Philly, and we've tried them all. I'd suggest Ahi Tuna Tartare, Filet Mignon (Oscar Style) ,Chilean Sea Bass, & Sea Scallops. Bill & Mary Beier"

  • "After years of coming to Philly for either visiting our daughters at school or just a shopping spree, we have found another gem. The Ocean prime is a great place to enjoy a romantic diner or friends getting together for great food and very beautiful surroundings. Well prepared food, nice presentation and wonderful service. Price is a little high, but the old saying is " You get what you pay for" . We will be back and I would highly recommend The Ocean Prime!"

  • "I found the restaurant to be good, but not outstanding. The ambience and decor was very nice and sophisticated and I would definitely go back, but doesn't really stand out to me as a steakhouse. Granted, I cannot ear shellfish, so that may have been remarkable. The creme brulee was delicious, which is always a plus. Service was very good as well."

  • "Although I wanted to try this restaurant without children it was my son's birthday. I must say the young adult menu is great it made him feel like he wasn't a baby anymore while still having menu items his younger sister could enjoy. A great time was had by all. The lobster bisque is amazing ."

  • "didn't know what to expect from this chain restaurant but both my scallops, and my companion's snapper, entrees were very good - the risotto that came with the scallops was very tasty we both had chop-chop salad, also very good, and a nicely proportioned size we split a mango/apricot sorbet dessert, which was tasty and nicely textured this was our first time here - we'll go back ps: the servings are generous (what a nice change) so I'd advise going light on sides and dessert"

  • "They had to return our steak two times and then eventually took it off of our bill. One of our friends has a food allergy so that's why we had to return our other dishes, as well. The waiter didn't seem to be on his game that night. Not sure if he has ever waited tables before. I suggest that guest should eat at the bar.... on our first dinning experience we had a great meal and drinks at the bar. The bartenders are really friendly and make great drinks. I hope this place does well because it is a gorgeous restaurant with a lot of potential and fun crowd."
