The setting is elegant, the food was above average, and the drinks were excellent. Only counted a few points off the food element because our steaks came out a little overcooked and not exceptionally flavorful the first time. The staff very readily took them back and made our full order again, but even though the steaks were cooked more to our order the second time they were still surprisingly low on flavor.

Really enjoyed the cocktails and ambience. Would go back for sure, but not for steak. :)

Waiter didn’t disclose to us the cost of the special he offered us. It was $125 for the appetizer. We ordered two. That’s a pretty big omission by the waiter when the entries were 1/3 the cost is the appetizer.

It’s m’y first experience at an Ocean Prime restaurant. Before, the Ben Benson’s Steakhouse occupied the spot.
Welcome, very friendly and warm. We enjoyed the food and the drinks. We had crabcakes, lobstertail and NY Strip Steak. Delicious.
The wine list is very extensive, but I was the only hüst drinking wine, so I ordered it by the glass. The Russian River Chardonnay was very nice, and so was the Stag‘s Leap.
We had a table for two just next to the kitchen, which was not very pleasant.

After a few bumps in service (with our party of 13) the manager on duty this past Saturday night went above and beyond and made the appropriate corrections to ensure our night ended on a very positive note. This is not easy to do but he was able to pivot and get on a better track immediately. Our head server Gus took everything in stride as adjustments were made and exemplified the epitome of professional service. As a frequent visitor of Mastro‘s across the street where I have literally spent tens of thousands of dollars hosting celebrations and business functions as well as regular $500+dinners for 2 with my husband, I have the choice of where I decide to dine. We gave our business to Ocean Prime that night on a recommendation from a large hotel a block away. I can tell you that his professionalism and positive attitude really made the difference and we will return. The food is also amazing which is very important. Please give Ocean Prime your attention- you will not regret it!

Wonderful place for my 50th birthday! Loved the smoking seafood tower with the most fresh and delicious shrimp and lobster. The lobster bisque ruined me forever— it was so rich and creamy and had giant chunks of lobster. We could’ve should’ve stopped there, but ordered the bone in ribeye that was cooked to perfection. Too stuffed to partake in the complimentary birthday dessert the waiter warned me to “leave room for,” he brought out 6 flutes of champagne instead for my girls and we toasted an unbelievable meal and dining experience.

This was our second experience at Ocean Prime and we didn't think it could be any better, but it was. Our steaks were better than most of the area steakhouses. My husband loves the French onion soup. Thank you for my birthday cake.
