The best Steak Tartare in town and an unforgettable Cucumber Gimlet!
This was a great evening. We had a server who was in training and he was wonderful! We wish him all the best in his future there. Job well done by all staff and the food was fantastic.
Our waiter, Tom, was great. Checked in every time we needed anything, but not more. A secret 6th sense, I suppose. One complaint was that he never discussed the specials. We only knew of them from the other waiters at their tables. Doesn't matter, as our food was terrific. I had three appetizers, and my husband had the surf and turf. All yummy. My oysters, lobster bisque, and tuna tartar was excellent. We will be back!
The cocktails and calamari were FABULOUS! The jalapeño potatoes were very good. Steaks were so-so. Not bad- but not worth the $$
We ordered the Sunday night surf and turf. The steak was well done but ordered medium. The scallops came out cool, not even warm. The au gratin potatoes were the only highlight of the meal. For $200 meal, we felt it was more than sub par.
Our first time here and we were very impressed with the food and the staff. Sea bass was to die for and the creamed spinach and jalapeño scallop were also delicious. Not a place we could afford to go all the time but we will be back.
Never ever disappointed with our meals at Ocean Prime! Sunday's are the best with the wine deals and surf & turf menu.
For the price point I was terribly disappointed by everything other than our beautiful waitress and the atmosphere. Our filet was good, but the ribeye was chewy and the creamed spinach was awful. They do something really strange to funk up the flavor and it is NOT good. Folks, I'm a total foody and so is my son, we both took one bite of this stuff and pushed it away. When I spend $350.00 on dinner, I expect to be wowed. I got none of that. Sad...
Heather and Robert always take care of us and make it special
The quality of the food surely did not match the prices. Had a 8 oz Filet that seemed small and nothing at all soecual about it. Not much flavor and I expect a filet at they charged to totally melt in my mouth, which it didnt. Quite a disappointment.
Great atmosphere! Beautiful view from our table looking down on the lights and excitement of Larimer Square in downtown Denver.
The seafood was fresh, and tasted like it was prepared with the utmost attention to detail, a rarity in a land-locked state. Nothing chewy or fishy-tasting from being pre-frozen here!
The staff was helpful and friendly, and they really knew how to make a special occasion extra special!
The hand-crafted cocktails were also impressive. One drink even came with a bubbly dry ice concoction. We had creme brulé for dessert, and it did not disappoint.
I would highly recommend this restaurant as a downtown hotspot that will treat you like royalty on your special occasion!
The evening started poorly. I chose to sit in the lounge area where I waited 15 minutes with no servers even acknowledging me. The room was half full, and what annoyed me more was that a man sat 2 tables down from me and was promptly waited on and had his drink while I continued to be ignored. I went to the hist who seated me, and she promptly alerted Patrick, the dining room manager, and Nicky, the server who ended up taking care of me. both apologized profusely and provided me with exceptional service for the remainder of the meal. They even comped my cocktails for the inconvenience. I have no issue complaining when I am not treated properly, but I will also provide kudos when the establishment rectifies the situation. I will gladly continue to patronize Ocean Prime and refer my friends and associates to dine there. They are 10 times better than the overpriced and pretentious Oceanaire!
Our restaurant of choice for a special occasion. The jalapeño au gratin potatoes are to die for. It’s hard to find a good seafood restaurant in Denver and this one is the best!
Great place we have been here a few times and it’s more amazing every time!
Fabulous! Crab cocktail and chilled lobster from the raw bar wonderfully presented and super fresh. My kids went with filet oscar and the roast chicken, both equally terrific. A great, great restaurant!
Ocean Prime always does it right and tonight was no different. Terrific service from Carolyn, well crafted drinks from the bar and a scrumptious meal. While our steaks were both ordered medium rare, the New York seemed slightly overlooked and the bone-in filet was a little more rare than planned. End of the story; we each happily ate our dinners.
The jalapeño potatoes and wedge salads were nothing short of perfect.
Great Restaurant. The seafood and steaks are excellent. Service was outstanding. Nice quiet atmosphere for conversation. Great Wine List. Everything about the restaurant is excellent if you are willing to spend some money.
I was impressed with the service and the food. The visit was my first and not my last.
Fabulous food! Love the lobster bisque. Team members are amazing. Ambience is perfect for a date night, special occasion to business meeting.
Everyone that helped/served us was amazing. They sat us early, worked with us and made suggestions on choosing everything from wine to the meals, and gave us two glasses of champagne for desert, as my friend and I came out to celebrate both of our birthdays together. Also the wine was half off which was an awesome deal. The manager came around to check on us and gave me his card at the time, it was all fabulous.
We showed up to our reservation a few minutes early, but they were able to take us to our table. Our table was not quite cleaned off, but they went out of their way to make up for it. The manager apologized and offered to get us a drink while we waited, which turned out to be just a couple of minutes.
This place was above and beyond what I expected! The food was absolutely amazing! The service was fantastic, everyone said happy birthday to my boyfriend, it made him feel very special.
Worst experience. Hostess was rude. We told the hostess it was our anniversary, nothing was done about it. The couple next to us received a free dessert for their anniversary. We had to sit in a long booth style seating where there were two other couples directly next to us. The food was mediocre at best. We left as soon as possible. Extremely loud and was not a good place for an anniversary.
We were very impressed with the restaurant overall. Great atmosphere and ambience. There were four of us in the party and all of us enjoyed our meals. I had the scallops and thought they were some of the best I've ever had at a restaurant. But mostly, we were impressed with the wonderful people that work there, starting with the hostess that greeted us as we came in the door. And our server was great. The manager also "checked in" a few times to make sure everything was going well.
Awesome evening, wait staff was excellent and John our server was very attentive. All in all we had a great time.
Server was nice but the service has gone downhill quite a bit since the last time I visited. Restaurant was very loud/energetic. There were several open tables when we arrived but we were given a pretty crappy location considering parties of two were given nice booths after we were sat down. The food was very good but not worth the price. Wouldn't suggest in its current state.
Excellent service, excellent food. I had the ahi tuna, with a spicy rub; rarely do I dream about when I can go back to have the same meal again but that's what I'm dreaming! The desserts are too big for one - plan to share. They had a delicious vegan option for my niece which I greatly appreciated. I will go back soon.
We were kind of rushed because we had to be at the theater. The wait staff and management went out of there way to accommodate us. We ended up having enough time for dessert. Service was exceptional!
My wife's filet as a bit overcooked, and when she politely mentioned this to our server Nick, he immediately offered to make it right. He, Cesar the waiter's assistant, and Patrick the manager bent over backwards to make it right. Service was exceptional and the replacement meal was excellent. Mistakes happen, and the staff were excellent in how they handled it. Will definitely be back because of the service and the food.
Was held over in Denver for weather reasons. First time at this restaurant. Very happy with service, quality of food and ambiance. Hope to return and hope we have same good experience. Time tells all....
Excellent. Ambience, food, staff etc. All excellent.
Our waitress, Andrea was fantastic, she didn't miss a beat. Food was perfect for all 5 diners, no returns to the kitchen!!! I have been to 3 Ocean Primes and this one is by far my fav.
This is the second time we have visited and it will be our last. Cold food, like ice cold, less than attentive service, and zero interest from the staff or manager to do it right. We should have known when the evening started with a “we can’t find your reservation” even though we had a confirmation number; and then when you have to send your Mel back a second time?... Just don’t bother - literally one of the worst meals we’ve had in denver. Spend your time and money elsewhere.
Celebrated an anniversary with my wife, and went to then went to see Hamilton with my wife and another couple. The food and experience couldn't be better. Michael M. , our waiter, was as good as you can imagine. He was there for everything. I wish I had another ticket to Hamilton because he was that good. It was Denver Resturant Week . However you couldn't tell by the portion size or the service. They want you to return, and I sure will. This place is top shelf.
I was very please with Ocean Prime - Steven #188 our waiter was excellent and I think he was fairly new in his job. The food was cooked to perfection and we had a wonderful time before heading to the play 'Hamilton'. I was surprised that Ocean Prime didn't offer something gratis if going to the DCPA because other restaurants will offer a free drink, appetizer or desert but overall we were pleased.
Awesome dinner! I had the Filet and my hubby had oysters on the half shell, as well as the salmon. He loved it! The bread basket is to die for! I also had the Chop Chop salad and the French onion soup... so delish! I now have a favorite cocktail, the Black Orchid! OMG! I can't wait to go back!
I've been to Ocean Prime a few times before but the most recent time was for restaurant week. Honestly, I was expecting the experience to be a bit less enjoyable than previous visits for it being restaurant week. I have to say I was pleasantly surprised, we received the same great service and same tasty food we have previously had. Thank you for your consistency!
The food was marvelous. The cons: way too noisy; too many tables squeezed in; the waitress pushed menu items so much that we wondered if she was working on commission.
We had a wonderful evening. Everyone couldn't have been more welcoming starting with the valet. The food was amazing and the service and food definitely 5 star!
The service there was excellent the place was very nice. I think the overall Food was very pricey.
