Friend really recommended this place, so our experience was probably an atypical one.

It was our first wedding anniversary. Took 90 minutes to get our main courses. Steaks and sides were lukewarm at best. Fortunately, they comped everything but our drinks.

We were there for a special evening. We were given a wonderful table with a view onto the neighborhood night scene. Service was excellent, attentive and not obtrusive. Steaks were wonderful. Excellent evening. My wife was very happy with the choice.

We made a reservation for our Anniversary 2 weeks ahead of time. We were dressed to impress, without our kids, and looking forward to a night downtown. We arrived on time for our reservation. The restaurant was mostly empty with only about 30% of tables occupied, but we were given a booth/table immediately adjacent to the kitchen door. It was noisy and the steady stream of noise, light, and traffic from the kitchen was a constant distraction. We should have asked immediately to be moved, but I thought it would be ok and I didn't want to be a bother. We ordered a bottle of mid-tier wine only to find out that it was out-of-stock. When we asked our server for a recommendation, he didn't know much about wine and could not answer our questions. He definitely tried to give us a good experience and I don't hold anything against him whatsoever, but the food was only so-so, and we spent $300 for a dinner that I would rate 2-3 stars at best. We regularly spend this much and more on dinners out, especially for a special occasion, so this isn't a case of being "out of our league", it was simply a disappointment. The highlight of the meal was my husband's swordfish; it was quite good, but probably not enough to to get us to return. Ocean Prime, if you're reading, it feels like quite a slap in the face to be seated at that table, especially as a couple who clearly understands the setting, the dress code, and with the money to spend on a Friday night downtown. Save that table for a walk-in, or a late arrival.

I gave Ocean Prime an overall four stars. I ordered lobster tails. They showed up with a spicy seasoning (it included cayenne pepper), which had NOT been part of the entree description. We double checked the entree description. I could not eat the lobster. However, the management was extremely attentive. They supplied new lobster tails that were seasoning free, and they were very good. While I was waiting for the second lobsters, they gave me a shrimp cocktail to hold me over. The whole experience, though, put a damper on our birthday celebration. I would go to Ocean Prime again, simply because their service was amazing, but they need to let diners know that the lobster tails come with spicy seasoning.

Good Food, ambiance, and service. However, overpriced for what you get. For the same price, The Capital Grill which is right across the street, offers better values for steaks. My ribeye steak, with sauce and a side which were additional, came out to around $80.00! But again, this is a seafood restaurant, so one might stick with the seafood, which is also a bit overpriced.

Overpriced and low-quality. Waiter recommended dish and then came back 10 minutes later after we had already ordered and told us it actually wasn’t available. I ordered a 10 ounce filet mignon which was served on a white plate with no side, no garnish, nothing else. The “loaded Baked potato” was dry and overcooked. Ocean prime is really just a novelty restaurant for tourist.

Thank you so much OP Denver! We were visiting from Columbus and had such an incredible time in our Cameron Mitchell home away from home. The food, outstanding. Our server Billie, unbelievably knowledgeable and personable. From the drinks to the ambiance, the evening was top notch. Can't wait to return-- thank you for sharing the amazing company culture with your out of town foodies!

This was the 3rd time my husband and I had been to Ocean Prime - went for our 17th wedding anniversary. Ocean Prime always delivers the gold steakhouse standard. Don't expect foodie faves like molecular gastronomy or a celebri-chef, but do expect solid, high-quality traditional steakhouse standards delivered with exceptional service. If you want delicious, spot-on temperature steak and thoughtful, delicious accouterments, Ocean Prime is for you.

Very disappointing. We have been here a few times but this was not good. The steaks and Chilean Sea Bass was just okay, the sides were smaller portions than normal and not as good, and we had to send one plate back.

Unfortunetly, it seems as if this old go-to spot has given into the Denver dribble. Pain to get to, harder to tolerate street people that have won the war in the inner core and it smells like pot. We will eat outside the City then see the show from now on.

From start to finish, the experience was amazing! The Bubbles and Berries drink was so fun, we called it our dining entertainment. The Chop Chop Salad was very good and Chilean Sea Bass fantastic. There was no room for dessert but the options looked delightful! Jonathan added all the extra touches to make this a meal to remember.

Food and service were great, if a bit pricey (> $120/person). But even on an uncrowded night, noise from adjacent tables was intrusive. (The dining room was not even half full.)

This might not matter for a "special occasion" meal, but for a business discussion, it made conversation difficult.

It was New Year's Eve so the restaurant was very busy. When we arrived for our 7:30 p.m. reservation, we were told it was at 7:45 (although Open Table had the reservation at 7:30). The food was wonderful and the service was so-so - mostly due to the New Year's Eve crowd. We've celebrated several New Year's Eves there but we've decided to try someplace else next year.

Outstanding quality of seafood. Pricey ($15 for a cocktail) but the quality matched what we paid. Upstairs isn't as noisy as downstairs. Many private rooms and smaller areas to dine. Very delicious beef, vegetables and of course, fish!

Great service, and classy approach to dining overall. As an aside, I left my cell phone there in the booth area accidently. I could not retrieve it until after New Year's Day. I was very nervous it was lost or gone forever. But the cleaning crew found it, secured it, and I was greatly relieved. Thank you! Besides your professional dining ethos and demeanor, your help and staff are of good character and quality.
