The food was amazing! We had the salmon and the Chilean bass... perfectly cooked.

The place was packed due to high school graduations. But service and attentiveness was done as if we were the only couple there.

Food quality and service excellent . we were sent to the bar area on arrival as 10 minutes early but the bar was very overcrowded and noisy. Would suggest cordoning off a small area for people who have restaurant reservations.

We dined there when there were lots of birthdays and it seemed to be graduation night so was quite noisy. However the surf and turf and lobster bisque were the outstanding dishes and we enjoyed some excellent Australian red wine at reasonable price for what it was and it’s age.

We went here after my daughter's graduation. We had no problem getting a last minute reservation for lunch. The food was terrific and the service even better. We had a couple people in our party that had specific dietary requirements, and the staff went out of their way to accommodate them. They made for a wonderful celebration. The only complaint I have is that they advertise themselves on Trip Advisor as vegetarian friendly, but they did not have any vegetarian main dishes. The one vegetarian is our party was fine with ordering appetizers and sides. As you might guess from the name, almost everything was fish or seafood.

Our party of 7 had an enjoyable dinner at Ocean Prime. The tables are nicely dispatched and the noise level is low, allowing for easy conversations around our round table. The waiter was always there for us and a great help for wine selection. We went for an affordable and well-balanced French chardonnay from Pouilly. I had a delicious lobster tail with green asparagus. Deserts are also excellent with a carrot cake you do not want to miss.

This is my second time there. The first time, the food and service were amazing. I had the same thing this time, fliet with butter poached lobster tail. The steak was overcooked and one piece of lobster was beautiful and tasty and the other half was not, at all. The sauce looked like it had been sitting on it a long time and had all dripped down -- making the presentation quite poor. At $69, I expect a high quality entree and experience. The waiter was not attentive, bordered on rude to my husband when he asked for beer on draft, and waiting in the bar area was deafening with the singer/guitarist volume turned up to 11. Had to leave to await seating it was so intolerable. Dining room much quieter and couldn't hear musician, so it was OK. Overall, for my more than $800 bill for dinenr for 4, I expected the same high quality experience I had last year. Poor value for the cost and our special dinner out hosting friends was disappointing at best.

Crab cakes were fried which should have been clear on the menu. I would expect broiled at a restaurant and price point like at Ocean Prime

Didn’t have to wait at all, we were seated at a very nice table. Everything from the food to the waiter we had was great. If you’re going to eat here request Stan! He’s the best waiter they have and he’s very knowledgeable about each menu they have. (Wine, dinner, dessert) Absolutely no complaints.

My boyfriend and I went to Ocean Prime for our anniversary, and I couldn't have picked a better place for a special occasion. The wait staff was incredibly warm and helpful, and the food was absolutely delicious. I'm pretty sure we're both still in food comas from the dinner a couple of nights ago - we couldn't leave any bite untasted. Would definitely recommend to anyone interested in a nice restaurant for a special night!

So consistent, so good, and incredible value for lunch. $25 for a full sized salad and a full steak or seafood lunch entree of this cailiber is tough (if not impossible) to find. Nice job OP!

Consistently great! Valet or parking lot across the street. 4 of us for dinner on a Sunday night. Promptly seated and then greeted by our server. Lots of choices on the menu, great wine & drink list. Bread basket is incredible. 2 of us had the amazing Shellfish Cobb salad that was filled with shrimp & lobster. Guys had steaks, a rib eye & a sirloin strip which were cooked to perfection. Our server was attentive but not annoyingly so. Lively atmosphere with soft lighting. Highly recommend!

Went here for our anniversary and had an amazing time! Derek our server was attentive and friendly but not overly so. Food was amazing we each got one of the specials. Fresh oyster apps were perfect. Yummy cocktails too. And an amazing butter cake with berries and ice cream, complete with a cute little Happy Anniversary chocolate sign. Can’t wait to come back!

Excellent spot for steaks, chops and seafood, in that order. Very busy bar scene, but back of restaurant is relatively quiet and calm. Good service and friendly wait-staff. Expensive for the food ordered, however, such as the $73 Prime Rib, and most steaks north of $40, more with a la carte sauces. Nonetheless, great location and I would return again.

Ocean Prime has been a regular dinner spot for us for a couple of years, especially for celebrations, but this visit wasn't up to par. We were seated right next to a large group despite there being lots of other empty booths nearby when we arrived (I know - I should have asked to move right away). We had two servers working as a "team", but who visited our table separately within a couple of minutes of each other and asked the same questions - we were constantly repeating ourselves. The filet - normally my daughter's favorite - was tougher and fattier than normal. We'd said on the reservation that this was her birthday meal, but nobody ever mentioned it. Overall, these little things added up to a mediocre experience, and we'll think twice before coming here again for anything important.
