Wonderful meal from start to finish. The scallop and short ribs appetizer was delicious. The scallops and risotto was also great. They were accommodating and combined a prime salad with salmon for a main course. Ten layer carrot cake topped it all off. Service was excellent.

I've been here multiple times and the food is always amazing. The lighting is always just right and the restaurant is beautiful inside. The waiters and waitresses are always extremely attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. Steaks are always cooked to perfection and the drinks are fun and energetic.

First time I can say we’re were very disappointed with our meals. My husband ordered Alaskan King Crab and it was pathetic and VERY expensive. Price would have been fine if it were worth it. Capital Grill has an amazing Alaskan King Crab and was thinking it would be similar! NOT! I ordered lamb chops and they were over-cooked.
Won’t be rushing back anytime soon. Hope they get their act together!

My husband and I are in the middle of the Whole30 diet and wanted to go on a date night. We ended up sharing the Chilean Seabass abd the Ribeye with some steamed veggies. We had a wonderful night at Ocean Prime! Can’t wait to be back and eat all the other great food they offer.

Service was phenomenal at Ocean Prime, stand out service. The food was good.. In our party of three we ordered the following: Scallops, Halibut , Rib-eye. Scallops were good, not mind-blowing. Halibut was out of this world and the Rib-eye was very good. I would absolutely recommend for the whole experience and good food... but, don't expect the best seafood you've ever had.

We had a 7:15 res and arrived at 7:14. We were told our table wasn't ready and sent to the bar. This is such an old ploy, and so annoying. When were were finally seated around 7:40, we were sadly not surprised to see MANY open tables in the dining room. I hate being shuffled to the bar - very bad form. The waitress Sabrina was wonderful - one of the best we've had. None the less, we had a wedge salad which was totally uninspiring - the steak tartare was however very good. My wife enjoyed the sea bass, and my scallops were 'ok' - nothing special - the risotto was quite sticky and lacked flavor.

Overall, looked like an extremely vibrant bar scene if that's what you're after. On an overall experience level, passable but not something we'd return to.

All the food and service was great, but take a hard pass on the Broccoli and Cauliflower, totally overspiced. For $13 we should have sent it back.

It's an expensive restaurant, but it's worth it, and the service at the bar was first rate!

Ordered the KC strip was very tough couldn't eat it. They cooked a NY strip for me said it would be better and only slightly better left most of it. I guess you have to order a fillet here to get a tender steak. They comped my meal but I was very disappointed. There are to many restaurants in the seaport to settle for mediocre.

Took the wife out for a special dinner. Ee started with a dozen oysters and drinks(Hendrick’s martini and prosecco); next was our mains: twin lobster tails(hers), and the surf-and-turf(mine— unreal). Amazing balance of flavors, good portions, and excellent wine recommendations by our waiter. Desserts were a decadent chocolate cake and creme brûlée with port to wash them down. We found the food outstanding, the cocktails well-made, and the service attentive. The oysters were some of the best we’ve had(and we eat a lot of oysters). My wife is a lobster connoisseur, and commented that she’s never had better.
The ambience is lacking as it’s a tiny bit institutional-looking, but the food and service are exceptional. Pricey but worth it for a special occasion.

We went there for our 5th anniversary of dating, we couldn’t have had a better experience! Levi and Chris took wonderful care of us from start to finish, making us feel like the most important couple in the restaurant! The food and ambiance was incredible, but the friendly and caring service was the highlight of the experience!
We’re already looking for a reason to come back!

This was our first time at Ocean Prime it’s a nice place with some very good food.
We were unfortunate to have are waitress poor wine over us, but they reacted very well, offering straight away to pay for our dry cleaners and very surprising, to not charge us for dinner.
Rarely have seen this before, as a business owner I would have reacted the same way, and I am glad to see that others do as well, congratulations to the whole staff for their professionalism and attention.
Will definitely come back and hope to get the bill next time.
Thank you.

My wife and I were in Boston for 4 days and didn’t really eat at any bad restaurants the whole stay. That being said this restaurant was a notch above them all. The food was cooked and seasoned well. The service was as good as we’ve had in a long time. The only negative for me was the bar area was too loud because of live music. Luckily we couldn’t hear it at our table.
