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.

Love the experience. My husband and I were seated in a smaller room which gave us a more intimate experience. Our host Kathleen was great. I will keep this place on my list for another time.

The items that we tried such as the shrimp saute, Chilean sea bass, twin lobster tails, lobster mashed potato, truffle mac and cheese were all really good. The warm butter cake dessert was a great ending to a great dinner. Would definitely go back again. The food and service were impeccable!!!

When I first walked into the foyer, it was arresting and impressive. I love the look and the feel of the ambiance of the downstairs dining area, where I had my meal. The service was great and the food was "to die for". I had the Surf and Turf as an appetizer and the King Salmon as my main entree. My mouth is watering just thinking about it! Because it was my birthday I had a special slice of chocolate cake. I will come back again during restaurant week as this dining experience is out of my usual budget.

Food was average, service was slow and always had empty drinks. One of our side dishes even came out late. Server was very nice but on a Monday night with not many people in there, I thought it would have been better.

My food came out cold... The portions extremely small for the price of entree. I found the combination to be so so. Not enough vegetables plate looked very pale. The waiter was kind and gave me dessert gratis for my birthday. Overall it was not a great dining experience. I was disappointed

Service was excellent and the restaurant is beautiful! I asked for my steak rare and it came out medium-rare. It was also far too seasoned with salt and pepper. The sides were delicious, but the entire meal came out to about $300 for 2 people... two glasses of wine each (I ordered a cheap glass and upon looking at the bill I noticed the server actually gave us the more expensive brand), two entrees, two sides and two desserts. A standard dinner meal for just 2 people is outrageously priced!! The night was a fine night out, but for the money, we probably will not return.

The seafood here is excellent. Blackened Snapper (their own blackening-not too spicy) in a lemon jus was superb. Grouper with lobster gnocchi in stock was a knockout. Wait staff was on it promptly and very gracious. Old World ambience with an impressive bar area, low sound levels and comfortable lighting. Everything you would want in a top shelf restaurant. Five stars!

We waited one hour for our food while we watched other tables who ordered after us receive their food. And on top of that our food came cold. We had to return the surf and turf because it was VERY cold. Finally after waiting 15min for the manager he was able to fix it right away. I am disappointed with my experience at ocean especially because it was my Husbands first time there and he did not like the experience. I was embarrassed because I talk so highly about ocean.

I've been to this restaurant 3 times. My first experience was years ago and it was PERFECT. My 2nd experience was mother's day 2018 and it was HORRIBLE. I waited almost 2 hours and the waiter kept saying they were waiting for our food, meanwhile the food was NEVER made. I walked out mad. This time I took my father for Father's Day and again we waited an hour for our food and it was room temperature. I was not pleased at all with how my food came out. I don't think there will be a 4th time for me
