The service and food were great. Our serve (Marin) was on top of his game the did the right amount of check ins. Unfortunately, walking into the restaurant immediately put a sour taste in our mouths. It was a busy Saturday night and our table was not ready which is understandable. Instead of being apologetic, the hosts said “grab a drink at the bar and we’ll let you know when your table is ready”. Even walking us to our table later, the host was extremely unfriendly and could not even pass along a simple “enjoy your dinner” after seating us. Walking into a restaurant like this, a refreshing smile is what you should be greeted with. Unfortunately, that was not the case but fortunately enough the food and service negated all of that.

the food was excellent. Our waiter was very charming but the service was subpar. I had to repeatedly ask for my glass to be refilled. In his defense, we were seated next to a large party of 27. However, I'd make reservations in advance and indicated that we were celebrating my hubby's birthday, so I didn't even understand us being placed next to a large table. Definitely not the 5 star experience that I am accustomed to. The attention was definitely given to the larger party. A bit disappointing.

Ocean prime has become my favorite restaurant for a special night out. Love the ambiance, friendly staff our waiter Levi was excellent. Big issue with a not so friendly hostess trying to put you in the back quiet room away from the lovely ambiance when other tables are open!
My daughter said the tuna tartare was the best she has had and I have to agree. Her filet she loved along with the truffle Mac and cheese which we used as a substitute to my mashed potatoes. My only issue was my entree... the Seabass came out over done which I was so disappointed about. Always hate waiting around for new dish to come while others are eating but for $49 had no choice. Manager came and apologize but nothing done in return which was disappointing. Of course I need to mention the fabulous truffle popcorn, warm bread and the chocolate cake for dessert all phenomenal.

Expensive restaurant especially my $18.50 martini... recommend for special-occasions or sit at bar and people watch.

This place was very disappointing, when eating in a high end Steak and Seafood restaurant I expect excellent food, and when paying $50 plus for a steak I don’t expect to have to spit parts of it out and be unable to eat other parts. My wife got fish, but an unusually small portion. I reserved this place a week in advance and we were looking forward to going, our table was stuck in the corner so I looked at the wall for the evening. Very disappointed that leaving a high end restaurant that the best part about the meal was the Chop Chop salad! I love Steak, not in this place though.

The one negative comment was the hostess Aubrey was rude and dismissive when we arrive for our reservation. I have dined many times at Ocean Prime and this was the first rude encounter I had.

From signature cocktails, seafood tower, and an array of perfectly seared fillet steaks, our guests from Japan were very happy with their authentic Boston seafood and California wine experience. with 3 bottles of Rombauer Chardonnay consumed across this party of 6 -- everyone enjoyed the dining experience and the Uber ride to the hotel. great service rendered by Jenna.

I got engaged to my fiancé that night. The manager did a great job making sure everything went well. They recorded a video for me which was a surprise. Food was fresh, drinks were on point. Service was a little slow, but it was a packed Saturday night. There was also a live band. Will definitely be back again.

It is a pretty restaurant and the service was very professional.
The noise from the band in the adjacent lounge was not appreciated.
The quality of the food doesn't justify the prices, not in the least - in fact it is shameful. I realize it is a city place that requires city prices but other than the calamari and some of the sides, the food wasn't very good at all. I could have bought better king crab legs at any supermarket - they were dry, salty and tasteless. The management was professional enough to take them off the bill but the experience just killed the vibe of dinner. The other main dishes were nothing to crow about.
They have a top notch wine list but who cares when dinner is atrocious.
I'd never go back.
