Food was good and our waitress was very good. However, even though it was a moderately slow nite, we were seated right in front of the service area, which was noisy and not a very calming place to sit, especially when a wine glass was dropped by a server right by our table.

Great experience and value. Service wise- bartenders were very welcoming and John our waiter was exceptionally good. Great knowledge of the menu and the wine list. He went above and beyond to make our dining experience a good one. The quality of ALL the food (salad/apps/dinner etc..) was amazing.

Would certainly return again.

Delicious food. We asked our server to bring it out quickly and she did. Had to wait to have our orders taken and also for refills of water, though.

The food was amazing. I had the Chilean sea bass and my husband had the halibut special. The Gouda tots and prime roll were excellent too. Our waiter Derek was excellent. We had a wonderful seat and really had a great time celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary. I highly recommend!!!

Ocean Prime is absolutely tops! Everything about this place is amazing. It's not the type of place where you would bring children, it's more of a business dinner, romantic dinner, or special occasion type of restaurant. The food is outstanding and everything just screams high end. It's wonderful. Would it be weird to say that their bathrooms even smell nice? haha Seriously, they have these beautiful smelling candles in the restrooms that just says to me that think about every single piece of their customer's experience. I highly recommend this place!

Lunch was mediocre at best. Greasy hamburger buns for the crab cakes, the same with toast for the lobster avocado toast. Neither was toasted enough to avoid the mushy, runny bread. The lobster was tasteless and not at all satisfying. To. Opt the toast was buttery robbing the taste of the lobster. The service was impecable and the ambiance great. The price was absurdly high. Those two sandwiches, without alcohol drinks were over $50 bucks before tip....parking was an insane $37 for the 45 minutes to an hour we were there. It is very hard to recommend as a place to visit

Outstanding start to finish! Brought my mom for a special birthday dinner and enjoyed some drinks at the bar before sitting down to dinner. The bartender, Pete, was friendly and hospitable and the drinks delicious. I asked the hostesses about any sort of special birthday desserts and they were both personable and great with recommendations.

The food is hands down the best! I had the highly recommended Chilean Sea Bass which was cooked perfectly and my mom had the filet which she said was the best she has had. Our server was incredibly kind, wonderful with recommendations and excellent all around.

It is a lively atmosphere without it being overwhelming. Wonderful ambience. I can't say enough great things! Worth every penny!

I love the relaxed feel of this place, lighting etc.. – but I definitely wouldn’t return to try more dishes. The surf & turf looked amazing on paper but unfortunately the steak came out more on the rare side, and not the medium well I asked for and was assured would come out, with a hot pink center. I only ate the pieces that I was able to cut that were medium well as I asked my server. The calamari was good. Service was friendly, but not exactly well timed and after our meals got dropped, our server wasn’t around much. Not even for me to try and maybe Re fire my steak. I was celebrating Vday and called to ask for a desert plate with “Happy Valentines Day” be written and that wasn’t done also, not to mention the desert didn’t come. Overall for spending over $200 it was disappointing, which is odd because I’ve been there before for a birthday celebration, the service was amazing, food amazing. Not sure if it was because of the group I was with or I don’t know, but Sunday’s dinner was very underwhelming.

Even though we had reservations, we still waited over 15mins in the packed bar.

Sat in a room with a very loud group that was talking about really inappropriate things. Waitresses just let it happen, even though she apologized to us and the tables around us.

Food is always the highlight. Amazing food, especially the steak.

Decor- Used 70s
Service- Server overwhelmed, in the weeds,marginally attentive
Proctors walking around, should have jumped in to support wait staff
Food - For a higher end restaurant POOR! Steak, plain, no garnish, seasoning , over cooked. Server never asked
Drink special - Cucumber..incredibly sour, server never asked
Butter Cake - Delicious!
250.00 piece of cake.
The restaurant is a scam! Won't last.
