OCEAN PRIME is a modern American restaurant and lounge from renowned restaurateur Cameron Mitchell. Located in Center City at the intersection of 15th and Sansom Streets, OCEAN PRIME Philadelphia delivers an extraordinary experience to guests. Highlighted as a new addition to Philadelphia’s expanding restaurant scene by the Philadelphia Business Journal and the Philadelphia Inquirer, it’s the perfect choice for cocktails, a power lunch or an indulgent dinner.
The menu is classic and yet there is a modern sensibility to the preparations which include lighter fare, like our signature shellfish “cobb” salad and sushi, as well as more indulgent items like juicy steaks and decadent desserts. A destination on its own, the OCEAN PRIME lounge offers expertly prepared cocktails like our signature cucumber gimlet or smoking berries & bubbles.
Stunning settings, a vibrant energy and truly genuine hospitality make OCEAN PRIME an ideal place.

The waiter was sleeping, we had to wait for every spoon or forch > 15 minutes. A few meals from the menu ware not avaiable, but the waiter came after 30 minutes to anounce that. Alive or death, I never will turn back there!

This was our first time dining at Ocean Prime and we were not disappointed!

Other then the noise level being a bit energetic, every thing else was a 10!

We were there to celebrate our wedding anniversary, of which I noted on the reservation, and they picked up on the details nicely, and made us feel like royalty!

Our server Kathleen was just about the best server we have ever experienced. If/when we go back next year, we will ask for her as part of the deal!

Great food. There was a wide variety of options for everyone. Restaurant was beautiful, however, music was a little loud and annoying and didn’t quite fit the setting. Overall, wonderful experience. Will definitely visit again.

Everything was excellent, myself and a couple friends reserved a table in the bar area, the staff, management included made us all feel really welcome before any food hit the table. The timing of our meals were perfect, with our wine and drink orders. OP Philly is a definite must for great food, with service that backs it up.

So it was a special occasion. When I made the reservation I noted that. When they called to confirm they said “and you’re celebrating a birthday “ and when my son went to the restroom I told our server, “it’s our son’s birthday “
Very disappointed. Nothing. Table next to us celebrating a birthday with candles and sparklers.
Food was very good, newer server not very good. Seemed flustered throughout. Had always had great service and am sorry to say this was a bust.

First off, I thought the prices were higher than expected. I was at the Denver shop and that was ok. Price aside, the grouper I ordered, requesting lightly cooked, came out well done.

This location was ok. I traveled to Philadelphia to attend a theater show and Ocean Prime was in the neighborhood of the play house. I usually dine at the one in DC and in my opinion the DC location is where I prefer to dine.

My husband ordered Chilean sea bass & it came out partially cooked - it was cold in the middle and not cooked through- he sent it back & I was almost finished my entree by the time he got it. For the price it was ok - very overpriced- & we felt rushed
