My wife and I have been to many Ocean Prime locations Denver Phly FL and mostly Boston we usually bring friends to intro them to Ocean Prime. We loved the apps the food we enjoyed our friends and conversation However Friday Dec 3rd my wife made a reservation for 4 my wife and I were an hour early they would not seat us until the rest of the party were there. Once we were seated the piped in music was so loud we could not hear each other because the music was so loud so we aske 2 times to have it lowered but it so marginal it made little difference so we ended yelling instead of enjoying each others company. The apps were great my wife's crab cakes were disappointing as they were so salty she only 1 and was unable to eat the second our friends wife got the lamb chops and they were very fatty. We are concerned as to what is going on with our favorite restaurant Ocean Prime with the extremely loud music and sub par dinner. Not to mention the $600 tab and driving from New Hampshire. Maybe we should not be so loyal and try some of the many hi end Boston or Burlington restaurants.
Very disappointed customer Paul M Najarian Sr.

Food was good though Steak was over cooked, staff seemed a little overworked and forgetful. At the end of the evening when we presented our tickets for coat check the host walked us to the closet and said “I trust you can find them.” I couldn’t help but laugh.

Should be called Ocean Crime!
We’re always happy to pay a lot for great food, however it’s criminal what this place is trying to get away with. The food was an abomination. My seabass with white truffle vinaigrette and whipped potatoes was akin to the early bird special at a cafeteria. I don’t think the chef even whispered the word truffle in the vicinity of this dish. It was a bit nostalgic though, as the potatoes reminded me of the same ones my stepmother serves out of a box. The ribeye was ok, but for $58 with no sides, it better be the best steak you’ve ever tasted. The $16 loaded baked potato took up half the table and was not something I’d ever like to experience again. In fact, let’s just forget that ever happened. The server was good but she didn’t care one bit about our experience and clearly was just mailing it in at this place. The ambience was loud, dated, and the clientele seated around us were obnoxious. It was sweltering hot. Need I go on? Overall, an overpriced, underwhelming, experience with the only positive outcome being that we didn’t get sick (yet).

The experience was overall ok. Am disappointed that I had 7:30 PM reservations and didn't get seated until after 8 PM!! The appetizers (calamari, crab cake, and oysters) we got were good and the server was attentive.

Ocean Prime is a solid restaurant in the Seaport district of Boston. The steak and seafood options are very good. The ambience was also very good. We were a little surprised that our party of 5 people booked on OpenTable were brought to a booth with only 4 table settings. We squeezed in and they brought another place setting, but there was a lack of professionalism around this. Also, there were errors in how our food was brought to the table.

We were visiting Boston on a family vacation and wanted a really nice diner and they did not disappoint! Excellent cocktails in a vibrant bar and then seated at a quiet table in the back. The food was amazing! Recommend the blue cheese crust on your steak and sVe room for dessert!

Was there for my wife’s birthday.
2 of the $50 plus steaks were not cooked properly

The timing of things was screwed up. Salads and wine after entrees delivered.

Very disappointed for what was a $700 dinner.

I loved the jalapeño au gratin. The steaks were cooked to perfection. The filet mignon was so tender that you could cut it with a butter knife.

I always enjoy my time there as the food is top shelf, chowder better than Legals, wait and bar staff treat you like gold, and my favorites are staples on the menu.

The only bad thing happened last night and was an honest miscue. When they packed my leftovers the 3 pieces of vegetable roll were not in the bag and I specifically saved one with Asparagus.

Otherwise you get a FIVE STAR all around.

Have a safe fun holiday,
Michael Waxman

Sea bass is well cooked, but overpriced. Didn't have special aspect other than texture and balance. Could not justify 56 dollars.
Personally felt steak was over seasoned, even with other sour appetizers that helped clean the palette. Service was great.

Took my wife for her birthday and had an awesome server and runner team. Christine and her team mate were warm and welcoming from start to finish. They both had excellent suggestions and were equally prompt to answer any question and exceed our expectations. I suggest everyone go for the posh ambiance and modern decor. Wide variety of wine, sushi a bit pricey but excellent quality nonetheless. Delicious sides and both our steaks were cooked perfectly. We will be back.

Awesome as always. Only reason I put 4 vs 5 stars is because the 4 of us were at a table that felt small. Otherwise everything was excellent as usual
