Inspired by the harbor, the restaurant warm woods, leather booths and live music, creating a sophisticated setting for cocktails, a power lunch or an indulgent dinner.

Everything was outstanding! The manager Julie Beal makes everyone feel at home. The waitress Kerri and the entire staff do a fantastic job every time I dine here.

We enjoyed our time at ocean prime. The food was delish and atmosphere was nice as well. This particular night the fire alarm went off but was quickly taken care of by the fire department after about 10 mins or so. Our servicer was knowledgeable and we took his suggestion on the steak special with did not disappoint.

Well what can I say that hasn't already been said. Service was excellent food was just a good. My Only gripe is the pricing. You can get similar Dishes, Service etc at other Well known Steak Houses for less and the quality is the just as good..

My favorite steak house has always been the Capital Grille and I must say this is right up there with it.
I had a 12 oz bone in filet with mashed potatoes and asparagus.
We also had the calamari and the surf and turf appetizers.
Everything was excellent
Cooked perfect

Food and service were excellent. Restaurant was relatively busy and crowded so a bit noisy; not a place I would go for an intimate dinner or if you needed to have intense conversation.

Our 1st dining experience at Ocean Prime was a great one. Service was friendly and prompt, great recommendations made by our waitress in selecting sides and portions. Awesome drinks and huge wine selection was impressive. The steak and filet mignon was cooked beyond perfection and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone in search of a great steak restaurant that isn't over the top expensive or too dark and masculine like your typical steakhouse.

I would not recommend this restaurant to any one (maybe an enemy) - being in the Seaport district should not have you decide to price your menu as high as you do - no extras on the entrée plate - an awful looking twice baked potato - far from able to compare the food to any gourmet restaurant in Boston. Left thinking what a crock - lesson learned - will check these restaurants a little more thoroughly before going - I felt as tho my money was stolen - awful food, presented terribly - its obvious what you are all about.

The food is always absolutely great here and the drinks. We typically sit at the bar but today we tried the dining table and unfortunately the service was just not great towards the end but otherwise the food was amazing as always

New Years Eve was crazy busy at the bar - very noisy and packed. Luckily the manager saw us and offered us a drink and we were seated soon after. Dinner was fabulous. My husband had a Pittsburg prepared filet and I had blackened snapper. Both were delicious. I had the Tuna Tartare first and it was yummy. We had the best waitress and we will ask for her next time. Her recommendations were spot on. The dining room was pleasant.

A little late getting our table ready so they provided complimentary apps. Seafood tower was one of the best I can recall. Bass with lobster risotto was good - I wish I had gotten it blackened like the waiter suggested (I think that would have added more flavor). Wine selection was really good.

Very nice overall experience. Waitress had a cold, disconnected and matter-of-fact approach. Didn't care for her...almost snobby. Get a grip ok... You're a waitress. If you don't like people get a job in a toll booth. So not a warm, welcoming manner that one might have expected in a restaurant on the higher side of food quality and expense. People work hard for their $$ and a night out like this is a BIG and SPECIAL event for many. Don't make it lousy. The Bus Girl was way friendlier! Crab cake appetizer was exceptionally good. I had the Surf & Turf which was overall very good but the gravy that came with it WAS WAAAAAAAY OVER THE TOP SALTY. Way too much salt was used to the point of unpleasantness. Essentially ruined. The place was jammed and our waitress very busy and we were in a time crunch so didn't mention it. Fairly pricey. You won't get out of here for less than $200.00 that's with a cocktail, appetizer, entree for 2 and then we split the 10 layer carrot cake which also was very good. So kind of a mixed review with both good and bad!

Appetizers were good on the whole...oysters, calamari, crab cake (only one) and sushi. Our entrees had mixed results. Three of us had the ahi tuna...good to very good, the teriyaki/soy glacé was very salty and diminished the tuna. One chicken dish was good and the lamp chops we’re excellent. One family member had the snapper that was so salty it really needed to be sent back. The desserts were all good. Six of the ten of us had been to Ocean Prime before, and we all felt our last visit in January 2019 was much better. Parker our waiters was very accommodating and professional.

We had a wonderful experience at Ocean Prime. It was our special night in Boston and it lived up to our expectations. We had Lobster and Steak and they were both perfectly prepared. We didn’t know that there is an Ocean Prime in LA, where we live. We will be going there. It’s a bit pricey, but we expected that.

Disappointed for their lack of interest in guests. Sat us under a fan and didn’t care that we wore our jackets with dinner. Managers said oh well and didn’t move us. They were out of 2 cuts of steak and then my steak was well done when I ordered it med rare. Tough night. The table beside us jokingly told us that they were experiencing the same

OP is one of my favorite restaurants in Boston. The food and the service are always impeccable. The Truffle devil eggs, snapper, salmon and sea bass (if you love seafood) is to die for.
