Ocean Prime - Tampa
Lovely restaurant. Great service.Lovely restaurant. Great service. Definitely for special occasions, a bit pricey.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA Tampa GemThough located in a car park, don't let that fool you, it's a great restaurant for fine dining with impeccable service and an energetic feel to it.
It's not quiet, but the food is excellent. We sat on the terrace at our choice, a great decision, and by the time we left at 9 pm the place was full. Would definitely go again.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AM25th Wedding AnniversaryExcellent choice for our wedding anniversary. Would have liked a booth. Called restaurant and told them flowers were being delivered and to please have them at the table when we arrived and they forgot.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable SeafoodVery pleasant lunch with friend. We had the seafood "cobb" salad and enjoyed it very much. We will go back and try the patio dining. It was very convenient to International mall and Crate & Barrel. Very helpful service.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic experienceEverything from the food to the service was fantastic. It was my husbands birthday and they made it extra special for him. We would definitely return.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA great experienceExcellent food and service. The waiters and ancillary staff are always attentive and eager to please. Food is consistently excellent. Always a positive experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMBest service imaginable!!!Our server (Tyler Vanetta) took the time to explain the perpetration process and displayed a genuine concern for any and all concerns. He made this the absolute best restaurant experience we'd ever had. The food was beyond reproach. Once again everything and more that we've come to experience when dealing with a Cameron Mitchell establishment.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMgood foodmy steak was very good and my wife's fish was very good. had a great time as well5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMothers DayHad a wonderful Brunch!

Nice.. Other wise a good experience.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPhenomenalMade a reservation to celebrate birthdays/monther's day and requested a quieter section, and we got a fantastic table with a view of the pond/fountain away from high traffic areas. Server was very helpful describing the various flavors and notes available with various dishes, and everything from reservation to coffee was spot on! I would recommend Ocean Prime, Tampa to anyone looking for a special dining experience serving outstanding cuisine!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was excellentThe service was excellent and so was the food. It's always a great place to go and enjoy5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasant atmosphereWe had a table for 4 but needed to increase it to 8 on a Saturday night. The staff was very helpful and set up a special table outside for us.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding dining experience.Outstanding dining experience. Service impeccable.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food!!!The food was out of this world! Especially the Jalapeno Lobster Mashed Potatoes! I make it a point to avoid many potatoes because the taste just doesn't satisfy the amount of space it fills in my stomach. As for these, I couldn't resist having 3 servings from the huge dish it was served in. We still only finished half of the potatoes!
The service was excellent up until the very end. I think the waiter could have visited out table a little more often. The first half of dinner was perfect, but I think the last hour probably should have only taken us about 20-30 minutes. The waiter was exceptionally nice and very knowledgeable!
Unfortunately, we left and forgot all of our leftovers. We would definitely recommend this place to others.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMnice business lunchlove this restaurant as we go both for lunch and dinner. My one and only complaint (hard to find one) was this last lunch it was a bit noisy being in the back room to hold a true business lunch where we needed to hear each other. Food and service were excellent as always. Have had business lunch before in front room and for some reason it was easier to hear. No other issues though.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic ExperienceBrought my entire family in to celebrate my son's graduation and we were all treated to a culinary masterpiece. Service was top-notch and we left wanting nothing. it will be on top of our lists of restaurants to eat at when we are inthe Tampa area.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service and atmosphere.Excellent service and atmosphere. Both of the appetizers (the surf and turf and the calamari) were outstanding. We ordered the Sea Bass and the Snapper as an entree and both were quite good all be it a little under seasoned. Peanut butter chocolate dessert was amazing.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSpecial Graduation TreatFound the restaurant after reading Yelp reviews. Out of town parent of USF graduate---local family hadn't heard of restaurant and now promise to be regulars. Wonderful experience. Staff (Richard, especially!) was incredibly supportive, entertaining, and knowledgeable---would highly recommend Ocean Prime for an amazing special date kind of experience. Food was delicious--seasoned perfectly---special occasion drinks---lovely scenery---met expectations and then some.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food service.Would rate very high as far as places to eat in Tampa area.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent EveningWe had a table in a semi-private room - very nice. Our food was prepared spot on, seafood and steak were perfect. Sean delivered exceptional service throughout the evening. We have been to Ocean Prime several times, this was the best yet.... we will be back soon.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious, but surelyFood was delicious, but surely no meal for two is worth the amount spent. We only went because of a gift card given to us. Spending so much on food seems sinful to us when so many are in need. We are too world conscious to visit this restaurant again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFine diningYet another perfect night at Ocean Prime.
Our waiter, new to us but obviously not new to the business.
Justin Jones, made the experience enjoyable with his great sense of humor and professionalism.
We will request him next time.
The food was superb as always.
Fine dining at it's best.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood surf and turfFrom great steaks to outstanding seafood.

Just delightful. Love Ocean Prime!!!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time we've been to OceanFirst time we've been to Ocean Prime and it was fantastic. Dining room seemed classy yet modern. Menu was not overwhelming but everything sounded so good we took a long time deciding and probably ordered too much food. Everything we ordered was excellent. Waiter named Guy was excellent, friendly, informative but not too invasive. The place is expensive but totally worth it. We'll be back. It was a Saturday night and we had an early dinner and we were headed to the bar for a drink afterwards but it was packed and jammming, so we had to go elsewhere.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMit was great. Only issueit was great.
Only issue was after we paid the bill and were sitting for another 10 minutes talking they no longer filled our water glasses and made it quite clear that it was time for us to leave.
All else was lovely4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat atmosphere and alwaysGreat atmosphere and always on the top of my list of places to take my friends and family who come to visit.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a most enjoyable lunch.We had a most enjoyable lunch.

Superb dining; the food is prepared perfectly with just the right seasonings. Our professional waiter recommended the perfect wines to pair with the meal. Ambiance and decor is modern, upbeat and extremely classy. Also a vibrant atmosphere without being noisy or losing it's high-end appeal. Highly Recommended!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMTried both the Salmon andTried both the Salmon and the Sea Bass. The salmon was excellent. The Sea Bass was some of the best I have ever tasted.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always Ocena Prime in TampaAs always Ocena Prime in Tampa was outstanding. Our regular waitress Tricia was off on Saturday night and Brian was first altermate and did an equally impressive job. Ocean Prime in Tampa never dissapoints.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my choice for myThis was my choice for my first wedding anniversary and Ocean Prime did NOT disappoint!! I loved the presentation of everything and the white coats of the waiters (nice touch of class and elegance!!). If i have one knock it would be it was a little noisy and cramped but i can blame it on the live music and the fact that was a Friday night. Other than that i can see myself coming back for special occasions in the future.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMIt would nice to put a bigIt would nice to put a big fan outside to circulate the air. Like they have at Island way grill restaurant.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was our first visit toThis was our first visit to Ocean Prime and I was so impressed. The Fish and Scallops we had were amazing. Great creative ideas for seafood by the Chef. Calamari was the best ever as an appetizer. Save room for the dessert. Four people split the carrot cake of 10 layers and the Peanut Butter Pie. Peanut Butter pie was over the top!!! Truly an amazing experience and our Server was very attentive to our needs. We will definitely be back again to this amazing restaurant. Love the food and service.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI loved the atmosphere, veryI loved the atmosphere, very energetic and hip. The menu was diverse and interesting. Service was top notch and of course, the food was very good and artfully presented. Our favorite was the tuna tartare appetizer. The steaks were excellent.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter was excellent,The waiter was excellent, with one exception. He told us the specials, but didn't tell us the price. My husband ordered the steak special. We were shocked when the price was $60 - which was $18-20 more than the most expensive entrees on the menu. We probably should have asked, but it would have been nice if he'd told us what the cost was when describing the specials. He really sold the steak as being the best thing ever. Unfortunately it wasn't. My husband would have been happier with a filet mignon. That said, the service was good and my scallops were wonderful. Our table was ready immediately and it's clear that they really honor reservations and don't try to jam as many people as possible into the restaurant.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my first choice forThis is my first choice for business entertainment. Never fails to impress my guests4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch choice for business mtgAgain...perfection! First time I have tried for a business lunch, perfect!

We have dined there several times but this visit was for a special occasion. The ambiance is perfect for a special occasion!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMwe love this restaurant andwe love this restaurant and always have a great time. Our wait person this time was Ritchie Malapira who was outstanding. We did a little tweaking on a couple of items and he never flinched when we asked if it could be done. He was extremely efficient. We are picky but take care of our wait persons when they do a nice job. This can make or break a restaurant and is the reason we left going to Armani's due to a bad wait person. There are never surprises with our bill either which is important. We know what we are getting.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous Birthday DinnerWe had not been in a while and had a great time. It definitely is one of our favorites.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst Time CustomerThe food was well worth the price and the drinks are stellar!
However we had a reservation for 9:30pm but had to wait about 20min to be seated. It was a very busy Saturnday night so we were understood the delay however the staff didn't apologize or seem to care that we had to wait.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat a wonderful place toWhat a wonderful place to dine. We were celebrating my daughter's new job and Ocean Prime was the perfect place. We enjoyed the fondue, sea bass oscar, and the ten-layer carrot cake--all was absolutely delicious.
