We were really rushed. Plates taken before we were done. Felt like we were being pushed out. This on a Monday at 6:30. Really unacceptable for what you pay at this place. Our friends from out of town were shocked.

Five of us went to celebrate a birthday. This place was nice, the service was friendly and prompt, but the food was overpriced. We enjoyed the Manhattan, lobster bisque, the sushi starter, Chilean sea bass entree, Black Cod entree, and warm butter cake dessert. The clam chowder, scallops entree, crab cake starter were fine but not memorable, and at this price point, everything should be really good. The blackened snapper was underseasoned and the ahi tuna was not good. The live music was enjoyable.

Really good. The special was halibut with mussels and wild mushrooms, which I thought at first to be an odd match, but the chef made the dish work with a well rounded sauce that married the elements perfectly. The seafood tower was fresh and tasty with seasonal local oysters that were the perfect taste and aroma of the ocean. The dessert selection was very good; decadent butter cake lightened and refreshing with berries, ten layer carrot cake that melted in the mouth but the best was peanut butter pie with chocolate cookie crust and scrumptious ganache atop a rich, yet light tasting peanut butter filling. The service was attentive without being cloying or standoffish; just the right blend of friendly and hospitable.

Great meal at Ocean Prime! Our server was very attentive but gave us some room as well. The food was delicious and there was great energy in the restaurant. There was a band playing in the bar but they could not be heard in the main dining room.

The was exceptional but the price was overpriced. Great night out with my wife but the bill came felt little surprised 😲. My suggestion is include vegetables 🌽 in the meal. Loaded potato 🥔 as side dish for 13 dollars. Overall, the food was fantastic as a father of 4 with one in College was not wise spending. If I return to restaurant won’t be soon😢

The service was the best we’ve had in a long time. Derrick is the MAN. We couldn’t decide on an app bc they all seemed so delicious so he came up with some great ways to try a few diff kinds. Try the goat cheese ravioli! Deviled eggs were good but I’m glad he said to try the raviolis bc those were just lovely and perfectly cooked. The food was insanely incredible. My Chilean sea bass entree was cooked PERFECTLY and my husband’s surf and turf was also cooked perfectly. It was his 40th bday and although we were stuffed, Derrick managed to bring I over a little bday cheesecake for the 3 of us to split. Thinking about bringing kids? Our 8 year old daughter had a delightful time and everyone was so lovely to our family of 3. I’m a margarita connoisseur of sorts and the one I had there was so good, I had 2. Thank you all for a wonderful first time experience!

This restaurant works or everyone. Sashima very generous and fresh, excellent presentation. Steaks, fish, sides, all fantastically prepared to order. Very flexible with substitutions and allergies.

Despite the size of this very large restaurant, the meal goes like clockwork. We had three courses on a weekend evening and the staff in and out of the kitchen are doing an outstanding job.

You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. The wine list has something from the casual glass to the wine enthusiast.

A very pleasant surprise for what I imagined was a decent steak house with a few other options. We've returned 3 or four times in the last few months after our initial visit.

A bit pricey but well worth it.

Enjoy!

Great location with valet service. We arrived with our party of 5 about 30 minutes early. Had cocktails at the bar and was seated on time. Great food and service. We will be returning for sure!

Excellent food and ambience with prompt but not rushed service. The food and wine selection was top notch, and waitstaff service was excellent, providing formal service without disrupting the conversations. The food was comparably expensive ($100 pp with only one glass of wine for one of the three of us and one shared dessert), so you pay for what you get. The service mark drop is due to the valet booth not being manned when we arrived, and no escort from the car for older patrons, yet a base $21 charge.

All in all, a great experience and I would highly recommend the restaurant for either a top notch business or personal milestone.

Even though we made a reservation for a party of 6 they set us at a set table for 10. They said there are no other tables available. The extra space was awkward and it made group conversation a bit awkward as well. We were disappointed since we were a group of people who we do not seen very often and wanted to all catch up. A bit of a bummer.
