Diner Reviews
  • "Don't think that because the Restaruant is called "Ocean Prime" that it's a steak house. Yes they have steak. But the other selections on the menu are amazing! This place has everything from seafood, salads, sides, and a great choice of appetizers. The ambience is what I loved about this.The service is why I gave it 5 stars. The waiters had impeccable manners and were very professional in their jobs (it felt like they were your very own private butlers). The food is also 5 star worthy.I had the sea bass which melted in your mouth! From what I could see, this place had a very nice private room for parties and spacious seating all around. With a reservation, we were seated right away (on a Saturday night). All around- excellent restaurant."

  • "The space at Ocean Prime is very arresting visually--high ceilings, deep colors, lovely decor--very nice indeed. Unusual soundtrack--a mix of popular tunes and classic folk rock. We were greeted warmly and seated immediately in a quiet upstairs booth. Service was friendly, and offered many suggestions. House salad was great, fresh and well-dressed. Shrimp cocktail was OK, although the dry-ice presentation was a bit over the top. Filets were solidly good, and cooked as ordered. Creamed spinach with bacon was the only off note--a little too salty, and the sauce didn't hold. Otherwise good."

  • "First a table lamp fell apart and knocked over my wife's wine. The oysters were underwhelming, overpriced. The White Truffle, Caviar Deviled Eggs sounded interesting, but the truffle was a little overdone while the caviar required a magnifying glass to find the egg or two on each. The Cobia special I ordered was very good as was the Blackened Snapper my wife ordered. The water glass in which a fuit fly landed was removed, but there was no offer of coffee or desert for this disruption of our experience. At a diner I wouldn't quibble over these inconveniences, but at this price point I expect a little more. Overall we had a good time and the food was good, but I think the lack of attention to detail doesn't justify the hefty bill."

  • "It was my 60th birthday. I wanted a special spot. So, I made a reservation at Ocean Prime. You will not find me back. The restaurant was noisy, and the service hurried. The waiter spilled water down my partners shirt and over the table. Food was ok, but not exceptional, and the sides were cold. On the reservation, I noted that it was my birthday. The server did nothing to make me feel special."

  • "Thank you so much for a wonderful evening! We went to the bar for a drink first and the bartenders were all so nice...my martini was perfect. Our dinner was fantastic. I ordered snapper and my husband ordered a blue cheese crusted strip steak. Both were perfect! Jerome, our server was great so we will be requesting him next time we go...we will definitely be back! Thanks you again."

  • "I tend to be critical in my reviews, but when I encounter a place I liked, I'm not hesitant to give it a compliment. This is the case with Ocean Prime. First and most important was the amazing service I got. It was friendly and professional. Second, the food was very good. Good quality for money to an up-scaled all american cuisine. And the decor, the place is beautiful! So what can go wrong? Good food, amazing service and great experience. It was a good kickoff for my weekend."

  • "I had heard of Ocean Prime several months prior from other friends and thought this would be the perfect occasion. She and I both loved the superb service, the scrumptious stuffed lobster with crab meat, the ambience and last, but not least......the beauty of the restaurant. I spent moments just admiring the details of the design plan. I personally plan to visit again before her annual trip next July, 2015."

  • "My friend and I shared a sea scallop special and a NY strip, split and plated in the kitchen. Our "surf and turf" was perfectly seasoned and cooked. A side of Brussels sprouts was large enough for sharing, with leftovers. The carrot multi-layer cake was outstanding and we were happy we ordered the pineapple sauce on the side since it seemed unnecessary. Service was friendly and attentive, but I lost a little patience when the third person asked us how everything was, when we had only just been served. A filling dinner for two, with tip, was $120, and worth every penny."

  • "When dining on vacation one of the most important aspects of my experience is the service. Ocean Prime not only met, but exceeded my expectations with respect to service. The food was good, though I would have liked a little more variety of seafood selection. I overall highly recommend this establishment and plan to return when I visit Philadelphia again in the future."

  • "Picked this restaurant because of the other reviews that I had read about it. I am extremely picky when I go out for dinner - especially about the service having been a waitress. But Ocean Prime EXCEEDED my expectations on ALL fronts. From the time I walked thru the door until I left I was treated wonderfully by every staff member that I had any interactions with - right down to the individuals on the floor that refilled my water without my asking. The food was PHENOMENAL. I had the french onion soup for a starter and the crab cakes in corn cream sauce and I was amazed at how good it was. I only wish I had been able to try a dessert but I was absolutely stuffed after the starter and meal. I WILL RECOMMEND THIS ONE TO EVERYONE I KNOW!"

Great place to go after theatre. Sunday Super included 3 course pre fixe including fantastic lobster bisque and half lobster stuffed with crab meat. Dessert was part of meal too and did not disappoint! Will definitely go back again!"

  • "My experience here was a nightmare. The hostess was rude to the last member of my party as she walked in saying "she didnt know where she would fit at our table.". Our waiter, Chris was rude, indignant, condescending, huffy, and abrasive. When a few of my party member ordered salads he kept quipping "you sure, you sure, are you on a diet." He was completely inappropriate and unprofessional. i have never in my life had such a horrible experience. it made every last member of my party uncomfortable and uneasy for the remainder of our evening. if this is what Ocean Prime calls service, they most certainly wont be in business for very long."

They treated us like family and we will definitely be back!!"

  • "After reading reviews on Ocean Prime, we were excited about this dining experience. We were greeted with a friendly smile and seated promptly. Our waiter told us we would have two employees serving us. The Chop Chop and Lobster Bisque were large portions and very tasty. Drinks were served promptly but nothing extraordinary so far. After that I am not sure what happened. Service was not what I expected, as the restaurant began to fill up. The Scallop Entree was so salty, almost inedible and the scallops were over cooked. The Porterhouse was better and had flavor. Both of our Waiters passed our table about 4 times after our plates were cleared and then offered dessert menus. Do try the restaurant as our experience may have not been the norm?"

  • "Dinner with 2 friends after work. We had a 5:45p reservation on a Friday. We were seated quickly, servers were attentive and pleasant. Our waitress Jen was very helpful with suggestions & explanations. She was knowledgable about the menu & passionate about her suggestions which were all on point. My 2 friends had 2 of their special drinks (berry bubble something & black orchid) which they dreamt about over the weekend. We shared calamari (good) & ahi tartare (delicious). I couldn't decide between 2 entrees and she suggested I got both (half each) which was ideal (perfect lobster tail & tasty snapper). My friends enjoyed the salmon & sea bass dishes. Afterwards a yummy crème brûlée. It was a really good dinner in a beautiful setting!"

We could not ask for better service, this second time we had Carrie as our server, she and the hostess recommended the Berries and Bubbles drinks with reminded me of a delicious witch's brew the way it bubbled over!! Carrie was very attentive and provided some great "girl" conversation and great customer service, we never wanted for anything! Great restaurant"

Food was very good though my wife who loved the lobster bisque was less happy with the surf and turf app she chose for an entre. My filet was excellent as was my calamari app. The vinegar fries were very good but the creamed spinach had a little too much bacon and too little cream. Our friends enjoyed their meals and we were all very pleased that we were able to carry on a conversation. Nice place."
