This was my first time here and it is now my new favorite! My husband and I went here for a dinner date on a Saturday evening at 6pm. We had the best server (Ashley). The food and drinks were perfect, from the prime sushi to the scallops and melt in your mouth steak. Everything was perfect!!

Jordan was our server in the bar. I was cheating on a diet and told him I was wanting to go all out. He rolled out the red carpet for me and made all of the best recommendations. One of the best meals I’ve ever had dining out.

I'm one of those guys that wishes I had ordered something different after a meal out. Not the case at Ocean Prime; from craft cocktail, to appetizer, to salad, to entrée, to dessert, everything was spot on to the menu description. Loved it!

Overall it was a pleasant experience. Our server wasn't as good as servers we have had there in the past, so that kind of made the evening less than perfect. I asked him there were any specials not listed on the menu since it was Valentine's Day and he said there wasn't, but I overheard the table next to ours being told of specials by their server. That was a little disheartening...all in all, it was a pleasant experience and I will definitely be returning.

Ocean Prime consistently delivers some of Indianapolis's finest food. The Tuna Tartare is delicious - and does not have an equal in the area. We appreciate that their food is always presented beautifully, and the service is spot on. Jason at the Bar and Desmond on the floor go out of their way to make us feel special.

My husband and I went there for dinner. He got the Sunday special which was the surf and turf. His steak was cooked perfectly as was his seared scallops. My king crab legs were plentiful. Black truffle Mac and cheese and the creamed spinach was wonderful. I can't wait till we go back again. The only thing I Didn't care for was how loud the music was playing. It was ridiculously loud.

22oz bone in ribeye was the special the night I was there. $58 special 😳. I got ot anyway and was not disappointed! It was very tender and juicy. Probably one of the best steaks around, specially for a seafood joint. The food, service and cocktails were all very good. Great dinning experience!

We were celebrating an early Valentine’s Day and also the fact that that my fiancé had found and bought her wedding dress. Darren was our server, and I have to say that he is amazing at what he does! The entire staff was on point with every step of service. The wine and cocktails were great, and the bone-in filet and sea bass were outstanding. Thanks again to Darren for an exceptional dining experience!

In a nutshell, Ocean Prime is a suburban chain that is trying too hard. The decor and food come right out of the 1980's (okay, if you feel I'm too harsh then early 90's at best). So having our server describe menu selections in foodiesque terms while serving something unimaginative and bland makes the whole dining experience a parody. The service is fundamentally adequate but there is a feeling the servers are encouraged to provide a level of friendliness that almost bordered on awkward at times. I suppose it's designed to add an element of "hipness" but comes off as insincere no matter how good the intentions. Bottom line: maybe this works as a neighborhood steakhouse for the 'burbs but there are so many new and exciting places to go in Indy we wouldn't go back or recommend this to friends.

Great food, service and cocktails/wine. Pricey enough to preclude it becoming a weekly haunt, it's one of our favorite places for special occasions or to treat ourselves.

Food tastes great! Service is five star and environment is awesome! Went there for devour Indy, got soft pretzel, French onion soup, deviled egg, 6 oz filet mignon with Oscar style, and carrot cake. Every course was so good and will definitely come back! Best restaurant in Indy we experienced so far! Compared to the mitchell fish market, it was day and night.

All in all a five star situation. The one exception was the seating on the patio under the heaters
was significantly uncomfortable for four of our six. Service was good and seating was fast. They were nice enough to change our reservation by 30 minutes later. Thanks.

Never has failed to impress us. These special prices during Devour are a good way to sample a fine dining restaurant.

The food was delicious. I have many food allergies and the staff was very accommodating. They do have a gluten free menu. Because I have other additional allergies, the chef whipped up a special side that I could eat. It was so nice to go out to eat again and not have to worry that there would be nothing I could eat. Our server Erin was also especially attentive to my needs and gave outstanding service. We will definitely return!
