Where do I begin ..... we arrived promptly for our 8:30 reservation. We weren't seated until 9:05. We waited in the bar for our table to be ready but didn't see a waitress for at least 15 minutes. When we were finally seated things seemed to be OK but went downhill after our meals were served.

The issue really wasn't the quality of the food or drinks. The problem was we only saw our server a couple times throughout the meal and not at all for the last 30 minutes. No checking to see if we needed to order drinks or food. No attempt to sell dessert. We actually had to get our check from one of the support wait staff. After the 3rd time asking for the bill, our waiter still didn’t offer an apology. I frequent this restaurant often and this has been one of the worst experiences I’ve had.

This is a very nice restaurant to enjoy a romantic evening with you significant other. The food is pricey but worth every penny. I ordered the surf and turf steak and lobster. I will definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

The food was absolutely amazing! I was so full with everything I loved it so much. I was a little uncomfortable with outdoor dining, but due to COVID-19, it was understandable. The ambience was so romantic and the dim lights were perfect. Did I mention the food??? To die for. 11/10 for sure.

The only reason I am not giving Ocean Prime 5 stars across the board was because I reserved for indoor dining and I was ushered to outdoor dining. This shouldn’t happen. Beyond this, the food, presentation, ambience, wait staff were amazing! Highly recommend Ocean Prime. Super romantic! Thanks!

Very neat covered “outdoor” patio with a romantic feel! Was able to dress warm and take my jacket off in 30 degree weather! Wait staff was very friendly. Service a bit slow. Overall 10/10 recommendation especially for a special occasion.

As usual the food was delicious, service was excellent. Carrot cake was to die for. However the only drawback was it was quite cold, uncomfortably cold, need more heaters!

I love Ocean Prime, have been to various locations. We elected a late lunch today on their “heated” patio. Having dined at various heated outdoor areas this fall and winter, we expected it would be reasonably comfortable. We were wrong. The patio was literally frigid. I could see my breath, had to wear my winter coat and gloves and my nose was freezing. It wasn’t just us, all other diners had on their winter gear, even hoods up. There were a few heaters mounted high up like strip lights but they were too far from the tables to warm anything up. There was an outdoor draft somewhere near the host table at the entrance that you could visibly see whipping up the table cloths nearby. The outdoor patio would have been fine if they lowered the heat lamps about 3 feet AND added standing heaters every 2 tables or so facing the diners. We really want to help support our local NYC restaurants but if we are agreeing to dine outdoors, the venue needs to take steps to make sure it’s at least somewhat comfortable to dine. This was a terrible experience we could not wait to get back in our car to warm up.

Very cold and windy.... so the whole experience was not the best...

The owners need to invest more in heating and blocking the draft

Pretty nice restaurant. I liked the outdoor seating. I loved the food. I always passed by when walking my dog for the training class and saw that was busy all the time. So it made me curious to look for the menu and see what they serve and it pretty catch my eye. I would definitely recommend it. And the service was great. Thank you!

Given the craziness of the pandemic, we were please with the outside dining and quality of the food. Heaters well positioned, and waiters and staff very attentive. The restaurant did charge a 5% Covid surcharge, which I found out after I placed my food order, but nonetheless paid. Seafood fresh but very pricey, veggies slightly overcooked, and good wine selection. If not for the high priced entrees I'd give this restaurant 4.5 stars.
