Absolute disappointment. Was served “Alaskan king” crab legs that were the same size as the green beans on the plate. Then overcooked and not fresh at all. $110. Manager removed the charge but couldn’t care less and acted as if we were bothering him. A supposed fine dining room with numerous customers in baseball hats and blue jeans. Olive Garden would have been a better choice.

Excellent blend of surf and turf. Very friendly waitstaff that is familiar with the menu and made great recommendations. Total bill came out to about $250 (including tip) for two. We were immensely satisfied with every menu item, the service and the ambience.

Horrible service! Waited for drinks from the bar for about an hour. Waited for an hour between courses. Food is amazing and so is the atmosphere! Would come back if service gets better.

Love ocean prime! Everything wonderful except for one of the five steaks, it had a lot of gristle and was a touch tough. Will always go back! Thanks

The food was good and the staff was informative but they didn’t come around often. It took forever for someone to ask for our drink option and our food. Once we were eating we felt rushed because like 10 min in the waiter asked us did we need anything boxed. Once we were doing it took forever to get someone to ask for check. The music was too loud we couldn’t really hear each other. Other than that the food was good. Also valet is stealing from people. The price for valet is $26 and they are charging $33.

We were disappointed in the food at the Philadelphia Ocean Prime. The experience at the Boston location was exceptional. The west coast oysters were very small in size and the portion was disappointing. The lobster we both ordered was under cooked. The steak was crisp on the outside but was very red for a medium well request. The service from our server Amir was excellent however we will not be visiting Ocean Prime Philadelphia again.

My wife had the scallop and short rib app and said the short
rib "melted" in her mouth. She had more scallops for her entree and will order them again next time. My steak was cooked to perfection and my lobster was juicy and tender. We had delicious desserts and would have eaten more but we were too full. As far as the service: my wife asked the waiter for a glass of white wine but something appropriate to go with her scallops. He brought her a glass of Sancerre which I didn't even see on the wine menu but was a perfect match for her entree. We had a fantastic meal and a fantastic time. We will be coming back soon.

We ate at Ocean Prime Tuesday night for dinner. We got there pretty early and it was mostly empty, but later started filling up as we were leaving around 6:30pm. This was our first time there as we're not often in the city but we heard good things so we gave it a try.

Our waitress Denise did a great job taking care of us. She kept our drinks full, offered good recommendations and even gave us a complimentary smoking champagne toast (dry ice in the glass) to celebrate our wedding, which was just over the weekend.

I got a Manhattan that was very well made with an oversized ice cube and plenty of alcohol in it. It was expensive but worth it for the special occasion and lasted me the entire meal. The food all around was excellent. We got the lobster bisque and a dynamite roll for an appetizer, then for dinner the Seabass, Scallops, and a Lobster Mac. Everything was fresh, hot, and properly seasoned. We only wish we had more of an appetite because we ended up having to take most of the entrée home.

All said and done our meal was a bit over $250 for the two of us which is quite a lot but probably worth it for a special occasion. We would certainly come back but maybe not order so much food next time.

Seated at poor location traffic from kitchen and restroom annoying. Each time drinks were ordered there was a 20 minute wait. Food was good but entree was small and cost was $$$$.

I don’t know if I would return.

Food and service were just ok. Not really worth a couple hundred dollars. We had steak, sea bass and cream spinach. Also lobster bisque- that was good. French onion soup was missing the onions. Not impressed. Not sure I would try it again.

Hostess group not like they are in Beverly Hills Ca. Where they are so nice to make you feel it is a special evening to be at ocean prime. Born and raised in Philadelphia and now in Los Angeles returned to Philadelphia to celebrate the 50 th reunion from Jefferson. I had to inform the hostess three times that one Women of the 3 couples did not walk well as she kept directing us first to the bar and then upstairs even though we were there on time at 7 pm. Please have them be another ocean prime like Beverly Hills. Thx.

Me and my daughter were celebrating our birthday together the staff was very welcoming our service was great the drinks for a wonderful the desert delicious. The only problem was that the food was not as good compared to the prices they charge. My daughter ordered the salmon which was very dissed tasteful she returned it. My steak was very small for $60 it was season very well it was just a bit on the tough side. My girlfriends chilled Crab appetizer had no flavor. It’s worth going to Ocean prime for drinks and their desserts their food is a hit or miss.
