A couple things that didn't go as planned from the kitchen but the service more than made up for it. Our server Tash was a true gem. Wonderful service and really made the experience exceptional. Other staff Chris, Christian, and Colon were fantastic as well. Really took care of us and made it a great night!

My girlfriend and I had to sit next to a very noisy group. They were very rude to their waiter and caused the first half of our dining experience to be a bad one. Other than that, the food was very tasty and our waiter was very nice too.

I made a reservation during Happy Hour, I was seated upstairs for the 1st time and it's beautiful . The architecture of the building is stunning 😍. Before being seated, I already knew what I wanted. Initially, I thought I would order off the happy hour menu. The host advised, patrons ordering from the happy hour menu are not allowed to dine upstairs; there's limited seating near the bar. Luckily I grabbed the last seat ( it fills up Pretty fast). The bartender wiped the area & sat some garlic truffle popcorn to munch. I ordered surf & turf & the Spicy Margarita!! It was EVERYTHING that I expected. The slow braised beef was so tender & flavors exploded off the plate & the scallops were seared to PERFECTION!! The ambience of the restaurant can be romantic and offers Sex in the City vibes. The staff is welcoming & valet is affordable and super convenient as the nearby parking garage gets backed up frequently

We discovered Ocean Prime accidentally while in Philly last February visiting Temple with our son. They were able to accommodate our large group without any wait and the food and service were phenomenal! In fact, they gave us three free desserts because our server felt we waited too long between our meal ending and his offering a dessert menu! This time around the staff was equally accommodating. We moved our reservation last minute from Friday to Saturday without any issue. The food was even better than any if us remembered and the service was fantastic. My only complaint is that the noise level is a bit high but the food is so good that you forget everything else around you! Now that my son is attending Temple University, we I’ll be returning again and again!!

Absolutely world class experience. From the minute we entered until the time we left, everything was perfection. Outstanding drinks and food from start to finish. Would like to recognize Allegra who was our server for the evening. A true professional and interesting young women who made the evening all the better. Thank you Allegra. Of course, we want to thank Jerome for making us feel special the entire evening as he always does. This has been our favorite restaurant since it opened for celebrating our special occasions.

Super slow service, and bad execution on food. For an expensive restaurant, those two things should never be an issue. I chalk it up to post covid staffing, but this was sub par
