Oysters were preshucked to save time to serve, but they were also a bit dry. Other food was excellent. Noise level got very loud as the restaurant filled up.

Excellent food with friendly and attentive servers. While a bit pricey, the Surf and Turf was perfectly seasoned and cooked to perfection. You get what you pay for.

Ocean Prime's - Boston edition is an excellent place for a great dinner. The menu has lots of choices and the food is excellent. Our server, Yvonne ( I hope I remembered her name correctly), made our experience exceptional.
The filet was prepared exactly the way I like. I look very forward to returning to Ocean Prime.

The service was excellent and there was a band playing in the lounge so that was fun to get a after dinner drink. But the food was ok. Its on the more expensive side so I was expecting it to be perfect. The wait staff was unbelievable but one of the 2 filets were over cooked and I got scollops that were cold when they arrived. The truffle mac and cheese was heavy and I tend to like a lighter mac in cheese when truffles are involved since it make if so rich in flavor. The other sides were pretty good and our calamari was nicely cooked not greasy at all and had a nice thai sauce.

We were celebrating our anniversary with another couple who was also celebrating their anniversary. Our waiter was phenomenal. The only negative about the whole evening was that we didn’t get the view we requested. Ocean front view was unavailable. The food was great. The service was outstanding!

I took my boyfriend to Ocean Prime for his birthday dinner and he is still talking about it even days later! We sat with Aaron who I have to add is one of the best servers I've ever had: knowledgeable, personable, and attentive to our needs while still giving us the space to enjoy our meal. The entire night was made to feel like a special occasion from the live music in the lounge before dinner to the dessert at the end. The rib-eye was hands down the best steak I've ever had. We will definitely be back- Ocean Prime is our new favorite in Boston! Thank you Aaron!

Ocean Prime was one of the best experiences I’ve had in Boston! I frequently eat out as well. They made my parent’s anniversary extremely special! The service was spectacular and they really go above & beyond. My family still talks about how wonderful of a time we had! It was fairly quiet and we could really have great conversation without being drained out by noise. I highly recommend this place for a cute dinner, special occasion, or a night out! Amazing.

An overall outstanding dining experience; I'll be back for sure. The service was very attentive and professional with great recommendations on menu selections and specials. Appetizers of cold crab cocktail and Wellfleet oysters were both incredible. Halibut dinner special and Lemon Cod off of the menu were both amazing. Butter cake dessert was to die for! So many good choices on the menu it was difficult to choose.

Chris and the Ocean Prime Team did an excellent job of helping my wife and I celebrate our 41st Wedding Anniversary. Although it was our first time there, everyone made us feel comfortable and special. The food and drinks were excellent and we will definitely return to Ocean Prime when considering a gourmet meal in the Seaport area.

We were seated in a cozy booth promptly upon arrival. The service was great, very knowledgeable staff who wanted to please us. My husband enjoyed the 6oz sirloin with au prove sauce and mashed potatoes. I enjoyed the Chilean Sea Bass which was very tasty. Our appetizer of Surf and Turf was sea scallops and pulled beef. It was delicious...a somewhat unusual combination. We will definitely go back.

Once again we had an absolutely perfect experience. This was our 4th visit in about six months and I don't think I have ever been to a restaurant with this kind of consistency- incredible service (Dana is the best waitress we have ever had), amazing food no matter what we order, and just an all around fantastic evening. When my husband told Dana that his steak had "sung to him", it was that good, and could she please tell the chef how much he had enjoyed the steak, Dana brought over the executive chef so we could tell him ourselves what an amazing dinner we had just experienced. This was a college graduation celebration, there were five different entrees, and all were cooked and served flawlessly. Ocean Prime is a true restaurant destination and I can't recommend it highly enough.

The service was outstanding. The food was excellent. I do think it is overpriced. Four large scallops and some asparagus for $40.

The bar area was very active and fun with TV's.

The dining area would have been perfect except for the loud music playing. It is
difficult to carry on a conversation with the volume up soo high. I suggest you
eliminate music in the dining area completely.
