- Great Special Occasion lunchOpenTable Diner Since 2014Dined on 10/14/2014A group of us had a birthday celebration lunch for a couple of our friends, and the reservation was great. I made it online, they called to confirm, and we were all set. The food was fabulous, as always. An awesome desert for the birthday girls was provided at no charge, and that was truly the icing on the cake. A great time for all. We've done this in the past, and will continue to do so in the future. A great, friendly staff make you feel comfortable from the moment you walk in the door.Special Features:
- Great Evening!EATINTAMPADined on 10/12/2014We very much enjoyed the Sunday night 3 course special. Nathan gave us excellent service, the food was wonderful and the price was right.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Reservation_SnubB4UGODined on 10/11/2014This should have been 5 stars if it wasn't for a poor beginning. As a special occasion was in order and reservations made, I expected the evening to be perfect. Well as we stood by the reception desk, a waiter or some guy that worked there, comes up to the receptionist and started swapping tables. As we walked past booths with "reserved" sign, we were seated right next to the kitchen / staff doorway in a major traffic zone. Well not too happy about the poor seating area. I went to the front and complained about the extremely poor area we were seated in. Of course they moved us to a much better table. If you make a reservation, the receptionist should have refused to play table shuffle - thus 4 stars.Special Features:

- Can't be beatOpentablefanVIPDined on 9/28/2014We always have great food and service at Ocean Prime. Our waiter, Richard Spears, goes out of his way to be sure everything is perfect. We return every time we are in the area.Special Features:
- Service was lackingMikeyBVIPDined on 9/28/2014Food, ambiance always very good here. We were disappointed in the service, which started out well and had periods of 20+ minutes with no visit for an entrée order, refresh water glasses, etc. Not used to having to flag down a waiter in a restaurant of this caliber. Not a busy night, so there was no mitigating factor visible, and thus we felt it necessary to reflect this level of (in)attention in the gratuity %. Must have been an "off" night.
- Always a TreatAndyNPRVIPDined on 9/27/2014We've been there a number of times before. They had Grouper as a special -- wonderful. The food was excellent and the service was very attentive. It's expensive, but we'll be back for special occasions.Special Features:

Ocean Prime is our go-to spot whenever we come to Tampa to visit our sons in college at USF.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- livelovelaughDined on 9/19/2014The hostess wasn't friendly at all. I had to pretty much make her speak, she acted as if she was tired or something. They had just opened it was 420 pm. Not even a welcome to the restaurant. Went to hang out in the Blu Lounge and it was about 4 people in there. I sat down and it was about 10 minutes before someone acknowledged that I was there. I don't want to think the wrong thing but it sure felt like it. Very disappointed.
- Lots of actionMickus007Dined on 9/18/2014We went on a Thursday night. Service was prompt and polite. Food was excellent! The only negative I can say is that it was so busy and so loud that it was close to being uncomfortable.Special Features:
- DebbyDined on 9/17/2014Celebrated my daughter's 16th Birthday there last week. Marissa made the evening extra special for her (picky eater) and had a special meal created for her. Our appetizers, entrees, wine and sdessert were perfect.Special Features:
- a little bit too muchOpenTable Diner Since 2004Dined on 9/15/2014The service was good but the stopping by every 5 minutes to ask about the food, the water, the bread, etc. killed the mood.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
- Very PleasedThinkPinkDined on 9/13/2014We went to Ocean Prime because of a friends referral and we were not disappointed. The food was terrific and the service was excellent. The only thing that keeps us from going back on a regular basis is the price. No complaints because the food was worth it.Special Features:I would recommend this to a friend.
