Our server was great, unfortunately I do not recall her name, but I do remember she was blonde, wore glasses and had a very contagious smile! She was very friendly and helpful with the menu items.

My only issue with Ocean Prime that annoyed me a bit, is that I set my reservation for 8:45 PM and still had to wait more than a half hour to be seated. Having to stand around and wait with my date who was wearing heels. There were no seats available at the bar so the wait was annoying.

Other than that, we had a wonderful time while we were seated for dinner.

We dined for our son's 27th birthday. One of the 3 steaks we ordered had to be sent back TWICE. By the time is was cooked as ordered, the rest of the party was finished dinner and the side dishes were cold. We have been here before without incident, but this will alter our choice of steak houses for the future. For the cost of a dinner here, should be cooked perfectly first time !

Everything about our dining experience was exceptional. Our waitress Lisa was so friendly and informative which made our evening much more fun! I have never had a more delicious steak anywhere.
The twice baked potato was perfect as well as the prime salad! The food is pricey but well worth it.
I can’t wait to return!

Excellent service in this upscale seaport restaurant near Boston's Institute of Contemporary Art ICA. Champagne in the upper echelon. Food is very well cared for. Expect excellence. The menu did not strike me as amazingly innovative. But it is solid, tasty, extremely well presented. Crème brûlée not up to Amelie's standards but then we're not in Paris are we. Selection of single malts was surprisingly poor but Lagavulin is always a gentle giant of a dram. However, all in all this is a great restaurant which I would return to. And I loved the fact that $5 of my special entree was donated to the Travis Roy fund for spinal injury research - hockey is close to my heart.

Had another great meal here! The food and the service are consistently excellent. Here the steaks always comes out as I ordered them. I’ve never had to send one back for being under or over cooked. Also their sea bass is my favorite fish dish of any restaurant I’ve visited in recent years. For side dishes the button mushrooms and tater tots are great... but save room for their warm butter cake or the chocolate peanut butter pie. Be sure to ask for Tamara, she is our favorite waitress in all of Boston. She is upbeat and provides great service!

Received top notch service from the valet attendant to the host, table servers, etc... Food was excellent. Everyone enjoyed their meals ( steaks and chilean sea bass) and the side dishes. I just want to mention that the seasoning on the brussel sprouts were a little sweet. So if you do not want a sweet touch to your brussel sprouts, then you should order something else. We also ordered the jalapeno au gratin and the truffle fries-both were excellent. Both my kids ordered the cheesecake and loved it also.

I was very impressed with the friendliness and pleasant way my reservation was accommodated. I was called two days prior to confirm my reservation and was asked if there were any special request or occasions. When I asked if it was possible to add another person, I was told the table I had would accommodate one more as our table was for 7. When we arrived, I told them we had a person cancel. They said it was no problem and our table was ready. Very flexible and started our evening off on a good note. Our table was at the far end and perfect for our group. The waiter was efficient, knowledgeable and very pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Four of us had steaks and shared 3 sides. Ample portions for sharing. The other person had the cobb salad with shellfish and she is still talking about it. Best salad ever, she says.
I highly recommend this restaurant and actually have done so for three groups of friends attending our Realtor convention. I hope their experience is as good as ours.

Magnificent meal. Our server, Dana was phenomenal. The food was delicious. Can we talk about the Gouda tater tots? Magical. It’s pricey but worth it. I’ve had plenty of $60 steaks that sucked. This place serves the real deal. Excellent meal from Star to finish.

My husband and I are African American and a caucasian couple came over to our table and offered us leftover tater tots from her meal. Our server was Justin he all also treated us as if we didn't have enough asking if we wanted 1/2 orders of the side dishes. Once we were done our bill was $323 and change we gave a $75 tip to Justin as well. I've never been so humiliated. The best part of my experience was Mr. Dunkley the valet.
