The entire experience was wonderful from start to finish. This was our first visit but won’t be our last.
The prices were high but was justified by the food quality and service.

I’ve been a few times now. The food is always delicious! This time I had the sautéed shrimp as my appetizer, king crab legs, lobster tails, lamb chops, as my “create your own” entree, lobster mac and cheese and creamed spinach minus the bacon, to accompany the mains. The Remy Martin neat is always a good cognac treat. My party enjoyed our night from the food to the atmosphere. Until, next time.

We had a wonderful girls night out. My only concern was that the seating was not 6 feet apart and beyond 25% for indoors. We had to ask to have our seat moved three times.

The server recommended a sushi appetizer, which I ordered then advised us it was on available on Saturday. The bill was outrageous fir 1 dinner for my husband and two appetizers for me, no dessert and two drinks $300.

Food was great, noticed the waiter who got my ginger ale with lemon used his hand to put the lemon on the glass instead of an utensil. Asked someone to switch it out for me and use an utensil to get the lemon, not his hands, and he switched it with no problem.

The food including the bread basket was amazing. I had the snapper, my sister had the steak and lobster tail and my cousin had the salmon. We also shared the truffle Mac and cheese which was just ok I wouldn’t order again. We were an hour late and they still accommodated us right away. I did call to notify them we would be late. The service was good but not the best I’ve ever had. The waiter was definitely knowledgeable and polite but only checked in on us once and just didn’t seem the most enthusiastic. The prices are high but the quality makes it worth it and it’s a nice dining experience. I definitely recommend for girls night out or a date.

I wish I took a picture but for $66, it was the skimpiest amount of king crab I have ever seen. Also, the quality of the crab meat was sub par, on the order of the crab you get at a buffet. I was also shocked at the price of the wine. My fav wine had a $120 mark up from the price you pay wholesale. My colleagues all say stay away from chain restaurants but I was in the mood for seafood and ocean prime was almost next to my hotel in Philly. I am sorry I went and will not go back. Rip off. BTW, the servers and martinis were awesome.

If I could give this place 6 stars I would! Came here to celebrate our 20th anniv! First time here! Didn’t know where to go but the reviews for this place were so good I figured let’s give it a shot! Well it did not disappoint! Unique experience here and they really made it feel special from the rose petals and candles on the table with champagne flutes as soon as we sat down and the free anniv desert with candles and chocolates! We ordered the Filets which were exceptional and the shrimp cocktail was probably the best I ever had. The berry bubble martini with the bubbles and smoke coming out of it was a real fun treat. I can’t forget to mention our waiter Rashaad who was super friendly and very attentive! Where we sat was quiet and romantic but over by the bar was more social if that’s what your looking for! Can’t wait to go back and bring friends next time! Awesome place for a special occasion!

Service from valet to our waiter was AMAZING. Food was okay though the Garlic mash was to die for! The drinks were fantastic. With tip and valet my fiancé paid just under $250 for the entire night. Overall good experience but don’t know if we will visit again. Maybe for the drinks!

I haven’t been to OceanPrime in awhile and was excited for dinner but it was not on point. We sat in a booth next to the bar and it was a lot going on which was a distraction and it was FREEZING!Our drinks were not good. My husband had a black label neat. Its his favor whiskey , and it was watered down. He even came home and made a drink to make sure he wasn't crazy. It was definitely watered down! I had a mojito, I wasn't crazy about the bacardi rum. I asked to send it but then decided to keep it due to reservations of being disappointed again. My lobster bisque was cold, I had to send it back. My husband enjoyed his entree,I did not enjoy mine!I had the blackened snapper. The cornbread was soaking wet very liquidity.I had to put it to the side and I had a total of 6 string beans and six red papers(I counted). I had blacken snapper plenty of times before and it's never been that thin. It was over seasoned I couldn’t taste any other element of the dish but the seasoning. Soo disappointed, that since it's our anniversary I order the butter cake for dessert. 😩. I was warm and dry. I just was ready to go. But the waiter was great. $260 not spent well.

The food was delicious, our waiter was very tentative and efficient. The only negative thing I could say is that the portions were very small. Other than that we had a wonderful time and would definitely visit again.
