Service was great! But the food not so much. I used to really like Ocean Prime, even though they’re pricey for the portion size. However, the last couple of times I went the food was mediocre. They must have new cooks.

This was our first time there, and we went for our anniversary. They treated us like a million bucks. They comped our glasses of wine before dinner and our shared dessert. The food was very nice, as was the service, atmosphere, etc.

Whenever I dine here, I am never disappointed about my food choice and/or overall experience. I did however let the management know that their Truffle Mac & Cheese needs just a little more TLC. I am confident that the Executive Chef will perfect it in no time! I absolutely recommend this restrarant and hope that they even consider competing for “Michelin Star” status if not already obtained. Until next time OP

It has a very nice ambiance and provides an upscale service but the food could be much better considering the fact that it is about $100 a person and that's not even including appetizers or a bottle of wine.

Every time we’ve been we’ve had first class service. The food is delectable. Our only complaint is the music selection as well as the volume. My wife and I could not enjoyed a pleasant conversation. Perhaps a jazz selection or soft music would be an option.

Oh my, where to begin. Just a wonderful evening. It was our 36th wedding anniversary. When we were seated, we were wished a happy anniversary and given complementary champagne. The bread was wonderful. Only in Philadelphia can you get that amazing chewy/crusty flavorful bread. My wife got the special - Chilean sea bass with lobster gnocchi and champagne sauce with baby carrot garnish. I got the surf and turf - Gouda potato cake on the bottom, grilled spinach, followed by filet and topped with lobster. Cabernet truffle reduction on the plate and a béarnaise sauce over the lobster/filet. We both absolutely loved our meals. The flavors were over the top. We were then surprised with a “on the house” 10 layer carrot cake with a candle in it as an anniversary cake. Even the coffee was good. Our waiter, Michael O’Donnell was great. Attentive yet we never felt crowded or rushed. The ambiance was modern and very inviting. The noise level is wonderfully low. We felt pampered from the moment we arrived until the moment we left. Ocean Prime jumps to the top of our go to list.

Ocean Prime is a little pricey so it’s not your everyday dining out place unless you are craving French onion soup because theirs is the best. Their drinks are so creative (try the black orchid, it’s beautiful if not a tad sweet). The twin lobster tails and the filet were cooked to perfection and their side dishes are simple yet a perfect compliment. I highly recommend this place. The service is impeccable. We had Michael as our waiter and he was one of the most attentive waiters I have come across. Great balance between conversing with us and also leaving us alone to eat

It pains me to say I would def not go back. Firstly, we had someone handicapped in the party. I called ahead to ensure a close table. Nope. Service wasn’t attentive and food wasn’t good. Internal was pretty but not enough for me to go back. Shame. We tried same restaurant in Boston and it was awesome. Better steak places to go in Philly.

Everything from the greeting by the host staff, to the bar drinks and service, service by waiter Michael and his team and the food quality was great. My only gripe is my buddy and I split the Chilean Sea Bass and a Bone in Strip and we were very disappointed with the portion size, especially for $49/ entrée. I wished I had taken a picture, but 1/2 of the sea bass was 2"x2" at most (2-3 bites). Each half of the bone in strip was no more than 3-4 oz. We've both frequented many steak houses in Philly and for me, around the country and they were easily the smallest portions I've ever seen.

Had the most wonderful time with delectable delights of cuisine. The Chilean Sea Bass was awesome, but just a pinch of too much salt. Drinks were great. Our server Carol was awesome, patient, and attentive to our table needs. She needs to be commended for her outstanding service.
