    i go to ocean prime on a regular basis for lunch. consistently the service is extremely slow and i am not sure why. if we want to get out of there in less than 1 1/2 hour or 2 hours we need to tell the wait staff we are in a hurry - why??? this time we had a hard time finding the server - we kept asking the bartender for things.

    Havent been here in over two years so I was looking forward to coming back and enjoying the seafood I remember. Unfortunately that didn't occur - long story short although the service was fantastic from our waiter, the food was just God awful. salmon was undercooked and sent back, As well as the cream spinach. My girlfriends Seabass was extremely bland and the brussels sprouts were decent at best. We ended up just wanting to get out of there so we had The Seabass put in a take-out bag and I paid the bill and left. They offered us dessert on the house but we were just so turned off that all I would want to do is get out of there. I don't think there's anything that will have her bring me back to this restaurant unfortunately.

    Waited quite some time to dine here and was disappointed to say the least. Severely overpriced I felt. Had two entrees, king crab legs and crab cakes, plus one salad, Mac and cheese, and a dozen oysters. Drank only tap water and bill before tip was around $175. Oh, forgot the overpriced, ridiculously small "ten layer" carrot cake slice we took home. More like "micro" ten layers if you ask me. Had expected it to be significantly larger considering the one I've had at Mitchell's was ridiculously(good thing) huge. The ambiance was stunning and service was attentive I must say. For the price, I would've been significantly happier dining at Capital Grill where I would've expected to pay that initially. Overall, not worth the price.

    Four of us dined at O.P. on Sweetest day. Our waiter, Chris was good, offering drinks and bringing delicious hot bread and butter to the table. My husband and I shared a delicious house salad the other man had onion soup. Three of the four of us had filet, done perfectly, juicy and tender. I personally feel the steak here is better than any of the steak houses in the area (Mortons, Flemmings, Camerons, Ruth Chris). the other lady had sea bass and it looked delicious. We shared a side of yummy mashed potatoes, enough for the four of us. We were celebrating two birthdays and had an excellent 10 layer carrot cake, and a really good baked Alaska. My husbands' coffee was so good he asked for the brand. We will return!

    Dined on 10/12/2014
    This restaurant came highly recommended. My steak was burnt to a nasty black crisp on the outside ( I asked for well-done). The appetizer (surf and turf) was extremely salty and loaded with garlic as if trying to cover up old food flavor. The creme brulee - my favorite desert, was thin and watery, and impossible to enjoy. Maybe it was just a 'bad food day'. Also the booth seats were noisy and difficult to get into and out of. I will not eat here again.

    Went to Ocean Prime this past Saturday. To say the restaurant was profiling their guests would be an understatement. Was put in the side room, which is usually used for private parties. From the guests in the dining area, it looked like the restaurant put certain guests in this "hidden" room rather than in the main dining area. The table next to us asked to move because they felt so uncomfortable. Looking back, I wish I would have done the same. The food was good at best, but I've had much better food at seafood restaurants in Birmingham. I had the scallops which were incorrectly seared and my friend had the salmon, which was overcooked. This was supposed to be a fun girls night out dinner and turned into an unpleasant experience.

    It was our anniversary and we always love to go to the Ocean prime in Troy. We live about 2 1/2 hours away on the other side of Cedar Point. Our waiter was Chris Fortin. He took excellent care of us. Was there when we needed him and let us drink and eat at our own pace. The noise can get loud at times but overall it was not bad. Enjoy.

    Ocean Prime is an elegant restaurant. The waiter we had was very accommodating towards our request. The food was delicious. By special request, the Chef was able to make me the Ginger salmon. This is not on the menu, but they have it for Troy Restaurant week. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion or for a romantic evening. I would also just recommend coming here, for their happy hour. They have a great selection of drinks and appetizers. Although, I do not think this is a restaurant for you to bring kids and a large family. I highly recommend you try this restaurant out and see for yourself!! You won't be disappointed.

    The waiter assigned to our table Alan de la Vega Gonzalez, was well-trained however I wanted a refill on my drink earlier in my meal rather than at the end of my meal. If he would've asked earlier I would've said yes. I don't know what the spread was on the tables that he had to cover however I didn't see him on him regular basis to ask for a drink earlier. The server that brought our soup not neglected to bring a spoon so I had to ask for one when I saw him again.

    Valet parking was readily available. The restaurant staff was friendly and when we requested a move to a quieter table they had no problem in granting our request (The bar had musical entertainment the evening we were there and we wanted conversation, not entertainment). The wait staff (headed by Nikki) was extremely helpful and attentive and the food, as always, was simply outstanding. We have never had a less-than-terrific experience at Ocean Prime and look forward to our next visit.

    I dined there many times in past(6 months ago). I made a reservation. Drove 1 hour to get there. Hostess was rude. Table wasn't ready. Then we got sat at worst table in restaurant. Under a heating/cooling vent which was blowing so hard the candle on the table wouldn't stay lit. In the middle of traffic flow on way the restroom, right by the door. When we asked to move, we were told No. Place was so noisy I couldn't talk to my wife who was sitting across the table. Bus boys confused about duties. I paid $230 for a meal worth about $50. Bottle of wine was $80 but tasted like a $5 bottle. My advice is don't waste your time and money this restaurant is not what it used to be. Should have went to Applebee's probably would have been better.

    They have changed the menu and it is much more upscale now with fewer choices which in my estimation is always a good thing. The menu itself is quite ingenious as it is on a tablet, and when you touch the item you are considering it shows you a picture of the dish with suggested wine pairings. The best part was that the food delivered looked exactly like the picture. My husband had the ravioli as an appetizer which was very good and a bit tangy. I had raw oysters - very fresh. Our entrées were halibut for him and blackened red snapper for me. Both were delicious. The entrees are pricy but I would rather pay more and get something I really enjoy.

Yes, it's pricey, but if you're looking to get away from the typical restaurants, this place is awesome. We sat in the bar, and their piano player was just fantastic. Wasn't too noisey at all. The service, as always, was impeccable! One of my local favorites for sure!
