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!
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.
Fabulous food! Love the lobster bisque. Team members are amazing. Ambience is perfect for a date night, special occasion to business meeting.
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.
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.
I was really excited to try this restaurant and had a chance to on March 3rd for Restaurant Week. I rented a limo and had three friends with, had reservations at Ocean Prime at 5:15pm.
The service was impeccable, I never ran out of water,bread or anything I needed.
I ordered the scallops which came out almost too cold to eat and chewy (I know they we're probably sitting for about 5 minutes until it got to me). I wasn't going to say anything because I knew it was restaurant week and the place was pretty packed. Plus I didn't want it to ruin our night.
The other three in the party ordered the filet mignon, one of them was blue cheese crust the other two were just regular, medium.
I ate one and a half of my scallops and my dinner salad which was amazing and a few bites of my boyfriend's filet mignon.
Nothing was special about these dishes. We go to nice steaks houses all the time and even make our own at home that have way more flavor than what we got at Ocean Prime.
I was excited to have the scallops since that is one of the hardest things to make, wish I could take that back!
I'm not sure what all the hype is about, I wish I would have went to Shanahan's as planned.
I got engaged after dinner which was very special and memorable, I just wish the whole night was starting with dinner.
We tried Ocean Prime as part of Denver Restaurant Week. The menu selection for main entree (filet steak, sea scallops, chicken and vegetarian) was excellent and the food was well cooked, prepared and presented. Salad was very good. Desert was excellent. The separate dining rooms should allow a variety of atmospheres (ours was quiet but just enough music to hear each other but not adjoining tables. I recommend this excellent restaurant.
We had excellent service and the food was very fresh and amazing tasting!
We left extremely pleased and will be back soon!
Our server was Rico who did a wonderful job however the entire serving staff was great as you can tell they all help each other on the floor. And of course the food was delicious!
I was very impressed with Ocean Prime. I have eaten here before many times, but I was a little worried with it being restaurant week, and with a Gluten Free member of our party. The waiter was very accommodating with Gluten Free options. They let us take our time and we did not feel rushed, even with it being busy and restaurant week patrons turning tables over quickly.
I would definitely recommend to friends and will be back as a loyal customer again!
Had a wonderful time at Ocean Prime. Food was delicious and had a great seat looking over Larimer street.
The best does the service Rosi is one of the best servers they have
The atmosphere at Ocean Prime is always good. The food was tasty, although both steaks were over cooked (my spouse and I both ordered the off-menu surf n turf option). Service was good, but not great. At one point I asked my husband if he thought our table steward was new… . I will likely try it again in the future, but for a meal over $200, there needs to be more attention to detail in the food and service.
Every one in awhile one has a dining experience that is truly memorable. We were fortunate that last night at Ocean Prime in Denver was one of those times. The food was terrific and the service was outstanding. The grouper was in a delicious broth and the teriyaki salmon was fresh and flavorful. We both agreed that it is a real treat when you find you are having a meal that is distinctive and thoroughly enjoyable.
The service and quality of the food was excellent!
Fantastic food. Great atmosphere.
Menu is always phenomenal.
During Resturant week, I believe they were unprepared for the crowds. Not bad, but not up to the usual standard.
Still one of my favorites...
Had the fixed menu for restaurant week, which was wonderful! Great service and we were seated in one of their smaller glass rooms on the perimeter of the main dining room which was great for actually carrying on a conversation! We’ll definitely be back!
