This was our first time dining here and we were very pleased. The service was great, the food came out fast, and everything was cooked to perfection. Definitely worth a return trip.

My Chilean sea bass was amazing. My friend had a little trouble with her steak, she wanted it medium well, it came back medium rare and when it was returned, it was well done so she was a little fed up. The ambience was nice. The service was great.

My husband and I had a wonderful dinner here for our anniversary. The staff went out of their way to make it special for us and everyone congratulated us. The food was wonderful, the tuna tartare was fantastic, as was the halibut, which came recommended. Our server Jeremy was absolutely delightful, very knowledgeable and didn't rush us through our meal. We will definitely be back and would highly recommend this place for any type of celebration or for just a cozy meal for two.

We had a great night out celebrating my husband’s birthday. We shared the lobster bisque which was delicious! We both had spectacular seafood dishes and shared a side of Mac-n-cheese which was heavenly. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. I highly recommend Ocean Prime for a memorable night out!

We absolutely love our waiters. Micheal and everyone else who waited on me were phenomenal. I'd give them a 10/10! But the food came out so slow. I don't know if it is because we had a big party but the sushi came out much after we were don't eating our soup and salad which took long enough. The wait for food was the longest I have ever waited. But Michael had such great customer interaction, he made dinner special for us.

Anniversary. It was a wonderful evening. We could not of had a better evening. The service was above spectacular and the food was perfect in every way. The meal was expensive but worth every penny. I would love to be able to come back to Philly and spend another evening with the staff.

Our waitress was Carol. She was extremely courteous, efficient, attentive and laughed at our jokes! Doesn’t get any better than that. She made suggestions about the menu which were spot on. She made the dining experience perfect. And looking around at the other waitstaff, we were very impressed at how attentive they were to the customers and to the facility. Either they were raised by the same parents with a strong work ethic or your training and selection process is top notch. Overall we had a wonderful time and at the next opportunity, will definitely return. Thank you so much.

great food and great service, but the ambience and speed of serving the food makes it feel like a fast food chain! a lot of tables around us were empty, so i don't understand the rush. from sitting down to having the dessert menu it was literally 40 minutes! That is not conducive to a high quality dining experience.

Ocean Prime is always consistent and outstanding. Unfortunately this year we were both disappointed and dissatisfied with the crab cake recipe change.They went from our very favorite anywhere in the city to our very least favorite in one visit. They went from delicious to flat and boring overnight. We will certainly go back as it is our favorite Philadelphia restaurant but unfortunately without our favorite crab cakes.

Our waiter-Mike-was fantastic. He gave detailed descriptions of what special items were available for the evening and answered all of our questions regarding the specifics of our order. The food was outstanding and was cooked to perfection; from the ribeye (which many locations don't know how to cook at medium-well temperature), scallops, shrimp, lobster tails, french onion soup, truffle fries, crab cakes-everything was was truly delicious! Additionally, the other members of the wait staff kept our drinks filled and ensured we had all that we needed. I was extremely impressed.

Prior to being seated, we enjoyed drinks at the bar-these were also excellent and the bartenders were very courteous and friendly.

Overall, the entire staff was sincerely attentive and the ambiance was marvelous. Having been to other Ocean Prime locations, this location exceeded the hype surrounding it and will most definitely be receiving my business in the future. I assure you, when you visit, you will not be disappointed.

Had Crab Cake and goat cheese ravioli for apps. I am not a fan of goat cheese, however, I tried the ravioli and it was excellent. Best part of the meal and a must try. My wife had Lobster tails and I had Blackened Red Snapper. Both were very good. I love spicy food so the Blackened Snapper was great for me but it is spicy. Drinks were Fantastic!!!!!!!!! Berries and bubbles is must try delicious and fun to drink. Service was very good everyone was very fast and professional. A special shout out to Damon who was clearing and setting up tables. He was always on the move and very personable at the table. Great Personality. I would Definitely return. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is the ambiance. I thought the music was a bit loud for a "romantic dinner" but really was not a big deal.
