I would highly recommend this restaurant. I was in town for a special occasion and brought my nephew to the restaurant. Danielle was very attentive and helpful in making sure the food was acceptable to my nephew’s food allergies (peanut and egg). She also made sure I was aware my meal included egg so as to not let my nephew try a bite. She never made me or my nephew feel like the extra questions were a burden. Our meals were delicious and the service was excellent. I will gladly come back the next time we are in town and will recommend the restaurant to friends and family. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

We hosted a large dinner. The food was excellent. The staff was helpful and accommodating. It was an excellent experience. Downstairs near the bar is noisy, but the smaller rooms upstairs were quieter and it was easy to have a conversation at a table of 12.

I booked reservations for my birthday. Got there, seating was no hassle at all. We were greeted at the door and immediately seated. Our server was outstanding because she was already aware that it was my birthday and treated me very well. She gave us complementary bubbly and dessert which topped off the night. The service, the ambiance and food were definitely big pluses! I will definitely go back!

My wife and I have been to Ocean Prime twice previously. We felt that Ocean Prime was good, but not necessarily special, a safe bet. This week we brought another couple with us to the restaurant to celebrate a night on the town with dinner and a performance at Lincoln Center. On this occasion Ocean Prime transcended from a safe bet to being spectacular. Everything came together to create a magical dining experience. I'm not sure if there is a new chef in the kitchen since we were last here, but every course was a gourmand's delight; from the appetizers to desserts, exquisite! As satisfying as the food was, what elevated the experience was the personalities and professionalism of the wait staff team. They worked seamlessly together in creating an environment that was enjoyable and memorable. My only regret is that I failed to get their names so that I could properly highlight them in this review. What a wonderful night!

We had the Tuna and the Seabass. The Tuna seemed over cooked and the Seabass seamed bland. The Truffle Mac and Cheese side and Calimari Appetizer were awesome. I felt the service could have been better as well. For an upscale place I feel things should have gone a little bit better.

We ordered off of the theater menu and were absolutely full when we left. The food was incredible and we could not get over the difference in price from the theater menu to the regular menu - we wouldn’t have gone if we could not get the theater menu. The steak and the corn were amazing. The sides of the shrimp and the crab cake were also delicious. The next time we see a show we will be returning here!

What an excellent restaurant from service, staff and food!!!
Camille was our server. She was very professional and courteous.
I didn't realize that ocean prime is a franchise couldn't tell from the superb service from staff and excellent food. Definitely doesn't present like a franchise. A MUST GO TO!! Will continue to go to when I'm in area.

Our waitress, Kerry, was wonderful! Portions were pricey and small. My filet mignon was good- not as tender as it should been. My husbands bone-in filet was very tender though! Drinks were good and Butter Cake was yummy! Very $ but nice for a special occasion. Restaurant itself is gorgeous!

I booked this restaurant for my husbands 25th birthday because he likes seafood and this was recommended for good seafood. As soon as we stepped in, the hostess was so nice and she accompanied us to our seats. Prior to the day I informed that it was my husbands birthday and I requested a booth because he loves sitting in booths, my requests were met and they even added some birthday confetti on the table for us. It was so awesome. And it also seemed like the whole staff was aware that it was his birthday. Everytime someone walked by, they wished him a happy birthday. Our waiter was Amazing!!! He was so nice, very informative, and easy going. Our food came in a timely manner, cocktails were awesome. I had the crab cakes for appetizers, he had the scallops, I had the lobster tails as an entree he had the crab legs and for desert they gave him a complimentary ice cream cake with a candle on it, and I had creme brûlée and it was amazing. Everything was awesome. It was well worth as much money we did spend. I will DEFINITELY be coming back to this restaurant for those twin lobster tails. I had them with the black truffle Mac and cheese and it was just perfect. Thank you for being so kind, he really enjoyed his birthday.

My husband and I had pre-theater dinner here. The staff was very attentive and helpful. Make sure to ask for the pre-theater menu as it’s not automatically provided. The selections were diverse, substitutions were allowed for sides and dessert. The food was outstanding, portions were generous. Definitely will return.

We had one of the best meals and a great experience dining after a theater matinee with another couple. Our waiter was so knowledgeable about the menu and how to order to get the best options for our diverse group of 4. The dining room is beautiful and with the acoustic wall panels very quiet, even in a room full of diners. I loved the multiple private rooms as well that we saw while seeking the second floor restroom. It would be a great place for a private party.

I chose Ocean Prime for New Year’s dinner in NYC based on a good experience at the Beverly Hills location. Not sure if it was because it was hectic for the holidays or what, but it fell short.
Our server was lovely but the quality of the food was not. The overall ambiance was not great. Nothing special for New Years, like a noisemaker or anything.. Not festive. Disappointing. Also all of the dishes are grossly oversized. Unnecessary.
