This place. Where do I begin? First off, no matter what you order, you MUST try the Bubbles and Berries drink. Thank me later. I’m a dirty martini guy and I ordered one after the bubbles and berries but I was sad that I didn’t order another “fruity drink”. On to the food. We started with a Caesar salad. Just your regular Caesar? Nope. Lettuce, croutons, and I ordered extra anchovies. Sounds like your typical Caesar. But then the kicker. Parmesan crisps are a game changer. Every steakhouse needs to take notice. She was stealing every single one off my plate if I didn’t eat them quick enough. So good! On to steaks. My wife and I each ordered a filet mignon. She got the 6 oz and I ordered the 12 oz bone-in. Both were superb! She ordered hers with the “Oscar” topped with crab and bernaise sauce but it also seemed to have a red wine reduction or demi-glace underneath. I got the au poivre with my bone-in filet. Her sauce was much better than mine. A bit too much pepper for me but still great. The sides were out of this world! Garlic mashed potatoes and bacon creamer spinach were our choices. Both were possibly the best I’ve ever had. For dessert we had the butter cake with hand spun ice cream. Just....just so good. The cake came out hot and the vanilla ice cream was heavenly. Now that you know how good the food is, let’s talk about the service. Perfect. I think that’s the only way to describe it. Alex was our server and she was excellent from start to finish. Always checking in and making sure our experience was second to none. The manger came by to make sure our experience was one to remember. If you’re in NYC, please, trust me, this is a place everyone needs to try at least once.

Service was great! Food was awesome! I actually can’t say anything negative at all! I would recommend to anyone. The best thing was service...just fantastic. If the food had been average I would have come back just for the service.

The guys at the front were excellent when I arrived but I was really disappointed with the service. While the waiter was very kind, he got my meal completely wrong. I asked for no onions with my meal and it arrived with onions. I specifically asked if the Brussels sprouts had anything except olive oil, he said it didn’t and it arrived with onions and some sort of sweet flavoring. If he wasn’t going to remember, I wish he’d written it down. Lastly, the burger lacked flavor. I’ve eaten at Ocean Prime often and was disappointed by yesterday’s visit.

They have the absolute best crab cakes, the filet melts in your mouth, and a drink called “berries and bubbly” is amazing! Highly recommend.

It was my girlfriend’s birthday and they decorated the table. They also brought her a creme brûlée with candle. My girlfriend also has celiac and they were very cautious and careful to not cross contaminate the food. I would recommend the restaurant for anyone who would like a nice meal before a show!

I met my son for a nice dinner. But we were seated next to a loud family with young children. So it was louder than I would have liked. But the food was great as was the service

I've already written.. The restaurant was beautiful. We have one in Boston but have not made it there yet and if your location is anything like that, I won't be going. My meal for two people was close to $300 which I don't mind at all paying but there steaks were TERRIBLE!! Undercooked, full of gristle and fat. Not at all what I was expecting for the price. I will say the chilled crab and deviled eggs were good, however, doubt I'll be back.

Wanted to find a nice restaurant to take my family before heading off to watch the Rockettes at Radio City Hall. Ocean Prime is near the venue and had very good reviews so decided to dine there. It was our first time at an Ocean Prime and it will not be our last. Right from entering the restaurant we were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The main dining room is big with very high ceilings, but the way the room is laid out and lit it had a very ‘cozy’ feeling. We had an earlier reservation so it was quiet when we were seated, but as peak dining time arrived the noise level definitely picked it as the restaurant filled to capacity. It never, however, got excessively loud, always easily able to carry on our conversation. I believe the high ceilings are responsible for that. The service was great. Our server was very attentive and always checking on us. Now all this is great, but if the food isn’t great then that other stuff really doesn’t matter. The food was excellent. And not to mention that this place knows how to mix drinks in addition to an impressive wine list. We had the ocean roll as one of our appetizers and it was absolutely delicious. My wife and daughter had the blackened snapper which was simply amazing. Had I known it was going to be that good I would have ordered it for myself. My bone in filet, however, did not disappoint. Perfectly prepared. All in all Ocean Prime turned out to be better than we were expecting from this last minute reservation. It was the perfect start to what turned out to be a wonderful night in the city.

We arrived 10 minutes late and our whole party was not complete, but they still seated us. Then we told them we had a show and we needed to leave by 7:45. They acted like it was no problem. The service was prompt and the food delicious. We would definitely go again.

Cool place in mid-town, but the prices are high and the food was just good. At those prices the food should be outstanding. You're paying for the atmosphere, which I get, but why were we seated upstairs? We didn't meet the cool factor?!?!?

Definitely an expense account type of place and I wouldn't spend my own money there.

From the reception at the Front Desk by the two Maitre D's to the amazing informative waiter, the decorated table because we were celebrating our Anniversary with Friends, to the Drinks, Appetizers and Entrees and Special Dessert and Coffees-it was all at a Five Star Level and a joy to enjoy!

Had a wonderful experience here this past Sunday. The people who greeted us and took our coats were cheerful and pleasant. Our waitress was lovely, and was not only on top of everything, but she made it a fun experience too. The food was amazing, and our steaks were cooked to perfection. The value of what you get was great too, very generous portions. We were celebrating a friend’s birthday and were surprised by a table decorated with festive confetti and we were even brought at extra dessert. I would absolutely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion, or someone just looking for a delicious meal with great service and beautiful ambience.

We went here for my daughter’s birthday. They treated us great and we had a really nice dinner. Pricey for sure, but I would rather spend the money here than a steak house - they just had great seafood choices and they prepared them all very well.

Kudos as well for making my daughter feel special on her birthday. They went out of their way to make it a special dinner for her.
