We had a great experience! We had a booth in the bar. Live music was so fun, and not too loud! I hate it when we cannot have a conversation with each other because of music being too loud. The cocktails were awesome, food was great!! Our waiter was fun and attentive.

Between the gretting when we arrived, the table they sat us at that had cold breezes from door opening ( we asked to move), the cigarette smoke you could smell every time the door to the outside bar area opened, the slow service, and wrong food items brought out, would not return. Waiter said steaks were amazing.... I have had better filets. Not worth the $200+ meal. Disappointing as we had never been there before, and thought it would be a special place to celebrate husband's birthday.

See my review (Elliottq) on Trip Advisor. Great restaurant and ambiance. The sound ratings apply only to the first room immediately behind the greeter station. Fabulous ambiance and low noise levels. Elsewhere the restaurant gets loud.

Our waitress, Laurie was outstanding. She informed us and checked back on a timely basis to make sure we were OK. The food was outstanding. Some of the best I have had recently with the exception of the side dish, Brussel Sprouts, which were somewhat burned. Otherwise it was a great experience.

This visit was very disappointing. We were looking so forward to is, but came away wishing we had gone else where. The service or lacking, salads took forever to get and the sea bass was very under cooked. This was for my husband's birthday and did not enjoy at all. Sad, because this is our favorite place.

My 2nd time here and it was better than the first. The hostess was accomodating when we asked to be seated in the bar providing us with a booth. The Saturday evening entertainment was very nice. Our server was extremely knowledge and helpful with our drink orders and food decisions. It was a wonderful evening out. Great ambiance!

My favorite restaurant in Indy. It is pricey but the food is well worth it. I know it's a seafood restaraunt but my son and husband say they have the best steaks (better than the well known steak restaraunts in Indy). The wait staff are great and the food is delicious!!

This was our second time at Ocean Prime. The food is very tasty & filling. The portions are huge!! Although the food is very tasty it left us bloated for 2 days. Very rich food, lots of butter & sugar. We are "clean eaters" meaning we eat all organic food. The food is very tasty but it was like a shock to our system.

Our dining experience was very good. It was a girls getaway weekend/birthday celebration/Christmas shopping all in one trip. Everything on the menu sounded delicious. We both went for seafood & were not disappointed at all. Service was excellent, too. We would definitely come back & try the steak menu.

Another great experience at Ocean Prime. This is fast becoming our GoTo choice for special dinner dates. The food is wonderful and only outdone by the service.

This visit was on a Thursday evening when it is half-price wine night. We don’t eat large portions so we often split items. Many restaurants charge extra for that request. Not Ocean Prime! They are happy to accommodate their guests.

We started with Dirty Vodka Martinis with Blue Cheese Olives. I have to say, they were not as “dirty” as we liked. No worries. Our server, Darren Highsmith (more on him later), brought us extra olive brine to improve them to our taste.

Next came the “Crisp Wedge of Iceberg Salad” (Red Onion, Smoked Bacon, Grape Tomatoes, Bleu Cheese, Cabernet Buttermilk Dressing) which was excellent. Nicely “split” as we requested.

For entrees we ordered “Twin Lobster Tails with Asparagus, Drawn Butter” ($49) and “Lamb” (Two Double Cut Chops, English Peas, Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, Mint Jus) ($45). We also ordered a side of Sautéed Button Mushrooms ($12). Again split for us.

Since we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, we ordered wine with dinner. At which time our server, Darren, said that he would “buy us” each a glass of Prosecco to celebrate. Which he did at the end of our meal, along with a very nice fruit plate.

Have I mentioned the SERVICE at Ocean Prime? Seriously, it is amazing. The service alone is worth the price and the menu items only enhance it. I can’t say enough good things about Darren. He truly made our anniversary a wonderful celebration.

I highly recommend this restaurant and strongly suggest requesting Darren as your server.

WOW! We were blown away by the food! Large portions of some of the best food we have ever had. The calamari was spicy & cooked perfectly. We had a dragon roll & spicy tuna roll. Both of which were fantastic. My wife loves lobster bisque & said theirs is the best she ever had. My 100% french grandmother made the best french onion soup, Ocean Prime's is a close second. The salads were very tasty & had the perfect amount of dressing. I had the Florida grouper & it was cooked perfectly & was super fresh. My wife had the sea bass & said it was very good. The carrot cake & chocolate cake were both over the top amazing. By far the best seafood in Indianapolis. We already have reservations for our next dinner date.

We had very good service. The food we received was very good. However, they were out of the item I ordered and another menu item was changed because the original item was not available.
Our reservation was for 7:30. We arrived on time and were told they were running about 10 minutes late. 30 minutes later were were not seated. We had to ask and then were seated immediately. The manager was very nice and apologized. We get it, people linger and it gets difficult but they needed to set expectations better.

Ocean Prime Indianapolis at Keystone Crossing has great food, a hip but cozy atmosphere, a phenomenal wait staff and great options for seafood and steak. This was a great place to treat business partners to a nice dinner, with lots of conversation-starting dinner, drink and dessert options. The small details were most enjoyable, like the post-meal coffee in a french press.
