In comparison to other restaurants at this caliber, the service was sub-par. The food was right up to expectations but service really brought the rating down. Even had to fill our own drinks when we bought a nice bottle of champagne.

The staff and managers were very attentive. My filet came medium rare when I ordered it medium. Like in all high end restaurants, the chef will cook it to his liking, not the clients liking. So the manager took it back and returned it in about 3 minutes medium, as ordered. Otherwise it was a pleasant experience. Would recommend to anyone going to a theatre afterwards; they are prompt and will turnover the tables within 1:10 of you arriving.

The Florida Ocean Prime is very different from the NYC location.
Unfortunately, the steak we received for our table was closer to rare than it was medium. We ate the ends which appeared medium but the closer we got to the middle it was completely pink even in the dark it looked blood red. We sat there looking at it until our waiter finally came over to ask about the food in which we asked if medium is suppose to be this pink. We were told because of the bone it’s pinker...which I never heard of before but that is something customers should know when placing the order and giving the temperate desired. I’ve gone to plenty of steak houses where the waiters suggest the best way to have the steak and this one was a disappointment. By the time the waiter checked in with us she asked if we were still eating which promoted us to ask about the temperature. She gave the explanation and offered to cook it longer and when I said ok we can take it to go she suggested we cook it in the oven at home to get the ideal color. So why suggest cooking it longer for us? To pay almost $150 for a steak for it to not be what you desired makes me never want to go back. The best part about the meal was the bread sent to the table. Even the truffle back and cheese was a disappointment. Best thing would be to ask the table more questions and give more suggestions.

Nice birthday dinner before an event at Carnegie Hall. We had reservations at 6:15 and had plenty of time to leisurely walk to the 8:00 show. They provided a festive table decoration for the birthday celebration. Did turn out to be kind of pricey, but was very delicious.

I have been here on several occasions and every time the food was fantastic. Normally I don't rave about a place but this one deserves it. If you don't mind the costs, the experience is worth it.

This was my first time at Ocean Prime and I brought an out-of-town guest. The food was delicious, the wait staff friendly and professional. It was very nice. My only qualm was that it was a bit pricy for me so I would save it for special occasions.

Way too loud. I couldn’t hear myself think. Tables crammed together. I had a better time understanding the conversation of the couple next to me. The acoustics are non-existent.

And...quite frankly...I get better seafood in Kansas City at Eddie V’s on the plaza.

So, ultimately, I’m not impressed. However, I will say this...great cappuccino.

My husband and I both loved our appetizers and our entrees. However, we got a side of lobster mashed potatoes and I felt like the potato part tasted like they were from a box. We also both got dessert and my husband's was free because it was his birthday!

We went early on a Friday night and then again early on Saturday night. Friday night there was a lot of noise from the bar but none on Saturday night. Friday night food (jalapeno augratin was great) was better than Saturday but still overall very good! I don't eat seafood and my husband doesn't care for meat so we both just ordered salads (they were huge) and several sides. Bacon creamed spinach was good but I think we would have preferred it without the bacon taste even though we love bacon.

This was our first visit to Ocean Prime and we will definitely be back for more. We started at the bar with cocktails, our bartender was excellent and my martini was perfection. (excellent blue cheese stuffed olives). The oysters and octopus appetizer were very good and the pretzel bread was fresh and tasty. The bottled wine selection looked excellent but we skipped a bottle this time and just had a wine by the glass, there were still plenty of good options. The steaks were perfect! Guss was an excellent server and we will request him on a return trip.

I've only ever gotten one item from this restaurant. The shellfish cobb salad. It is fantastic! Someday, I will go there and try something else, but for now, I'm happy with heaping piles of cold lobster and shrimp meat, accented with corn and lemon vinaigrette. So, so, so delicious!

Pulling off Seafood and steaks and chops is NOT easy. Ocean Prime very nearly pulls it off - but sadly falls just short.

Seafood starters and salads were great, particularly the oysters. Great space, solid service. Now for the steaks. Ribeye was excellent but you cannot call yourself a chop house and serve mediocre, chewy, not properly charred NY strip. So disappointing!

Willing to give these guys a second chance. But if they expect to stay in business they better buy a proper 900 degree broiler!! No way mediocre steaks work for me.
