Everything was pretty great! Only thing I had an issue with is that our server, although super friendly and helpful, didn’t listen to my dietary needs. For the cost of the food, I think every server should ask at the beginning if there are any food allergies or dietary issues. I also think Ocean Prime should have some sort of rewards program like other expensive restaurants in Indy. I would definitely come more if they had something like that!!

In the past we have been a big fan of this Ocean Prime location, but our anniversary dinner was far below our expectations. I hope this was an anomaly, but first we ordered a nice bottle of wine with our entrees, which never came. Our server apologized after we were already finished with our fillets, but that of course correctly implies that she never checked in between our food arriving from the kitchen and us finishing. After that we ordered a second round of cocktails in lieu of wine, and when they finally came out the server said "These do not look as good as the last round". (Then why not talk to the bartender before bringing them to the table?) Anyhow, the food was solid but the service from the hostess to server was not what I expect from a restaurant in this price point, which is too bad because this had been one of our favorite spots in Indy.

Lorrie was terrific and the new trainee seem to be someone I think will make you a good waiter. We had a great time and my customers really enjoyed themselves. It made the long drive from downtown worth it. When I am back in the Indy area I will make sure I come back for a great dining experience.

Our food was fantastic! I was, however, a little disappointed in the service of the restaurant not the server. I had read that if you notify Ocean Prime of a celebration that you are having then there is a flute of champagne for toasting and that your dessert will have “congrats” piped onto the plate. Even though the server verified our cause for celebration, no champagne, and no “congrats” on our dessert plate. Kind of a let down. Other than that, it was a perfect evening.

Food and wait staff were excellent. Reservation management and front desk staff were poor. We had confirmed reservations by phone same day as reservation. Front desk staff had wrong number of guests and wrong time when we arrived. They even called us when they thought we were 13 minutes late when in fact we were 17 minutes early. A clear minor mix up BUT they would not let us be seated until 5 of our 10 guests arrived for a family birthday. Then they took us to a table with not enough seats. Senior management quickly and effectively remedied the glitch.

Great food and service! I love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. I definitely would return to try more steak. The surf and turf was amazing. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable."

By accident, reserved a table on the patio - keep in mind it was 30 degrees outside. It was a good accident. Sat by the fireplace - ambiance was outstanding - and it was cozy warm. As usual food was well prepared. Service was very good. The problem - the value just isn’t there. I don’t know why Ocean Prime feels the need to charge 10% to 20% more for their items versus pick your favorite high end restaurant chain. For comparison, Ruth’s Chris just down the road was booked solid and Ocean Prime was not. It’s all about value.

First time there. Hostess was rude, food mediocre. My wife has a food allergy and waitress wasn’t very attentive to our requests. Kept forgetting the food allergy situation. Won’t be going back. Seasons 52 much better in our book.

We were there for date night, and the service was exceptional. Our server was Phillip, and I have never had a server who was not only attentive, but so excellent at describing the food and helping us pick out our entrees. I will definitely request him the next time we dine at Ocean Prime. The service was excellent and the food was wonderful. The peanut butter pie was to die for as well!

Everything was perfect! I just don't understand why they chose to play pop music. Not that I have a problem with pop.. I just feel that contemporary/ jazz or even classical music would be more fitting.

Ocean Prime has an excellent selection of appetizers, soups/salads, entries and desserts. The drinks selection is excellent too. There were 8 people in our party and we ordered a wide range of food - filet, pork, sea bass and ahi tuna as well as many different soups and salads. Everyone throughly enjoyed their selection. I highly recommend the calamari appetizer, french onion soup and pork. The carrot cake was fantastic. This is our favorite restaurant to dine at in Indianapolis. The service was outstanding too!!!

We were celebrating my 70th birthday. I was with my over 90 years old parents. Unfortunately we were seated next to a large part of 12. Because my parents are hard of hearing, it was difficult for us to have conversations. They did not acknowledge my birthday-- do you not do anything special for the birthday person? Other than that, dinner was very good, especially the salads!

3rd time diner in 2019. Tonight, they violated a cardinal rule of high end restaurants. NEVER run out of a core menu item.

Will likely go back to my old faithful. Great steaks all around the area. Need to be able to rely on their “strong menu” that our waitress bragged about. However, she was terrific. Most of the table came for items they were out of!

Huge disappointment.

Btw. Creme Brûlée was superb.
