We went for the special Father’s Day brunch. This was our first visit, but definitely not our last. Our server, David, was very attentive, so we never needed for anything. Chef Ben made sure everything that was brought to our table was perfect and to or liking.
If you are looking for top notch, 5 star dining, I highly recommend Ocean Prime. Definitely did not have that “chain” feel.

The food was not worth the price. My whipped potatoes were watery, and the Chilean sea bass was not cooked well and not seasoned.

Overall, definitely not worth the price.

The food was excellent. The service was poor which was unfortunate. This restaurant came highly recommended so I took my boyfriend to celebrate his birthday. We waited 25 minutes at the table with no water or menus before anyone came over to greet us. We I ordered Fiji water. It was another 15 minutes before it came out, and we were still waiting for bread that never arrived at this point. Our bread came out with our appetizer. We ordered our food. Both parties that arrived 45 minutes after us received bread, water, drinks, and food and we were still waiting for our entrees. At this point I was upset and so was my boyfriend and we were ready to go. Our food finally arrived and it was delicious. We asked for containers to go and our check. We packed up our food and sat around taking selfies for about another 20 minutes. The manager came by to ask how was our experience. We told her what happen and she was very apologetic and accommodating. I really hope that this experience was due to being short staffed or something, because for the money I expected better service.

The food and service were outstanding. We went to celebrate our anniversary and I was pleasantly surprised with rose petals on the table and free champagne and dessert. It was hands down the best meal I have ever had (besides the first time going to ocean prime). I would highly recommended ocean prime to anyone looking for a nice and upscale dinner. Everything we have tried from there tastes great and the service is always phenomenal. I always leave extremely full and satisfied with the meal.

Went for my wife’s birthday. She loved everything. She stated it was the best shrimp, filet mignon & scallops she’s ever had & we’ve been many places. They were not stingy with the lobster in the lobster Mac & Cheese either! We’ll definitely be back.

As always, the food and the service a great. The only issue was that the steak was medium rare and not medium. Usually not a big deal, but for the price and what I expect, I'd like my steak cooked the way I asked for it. Again, normally not an issue as we've been here several times. This time that was the only issue. It was brought up to the server and no action was taken, which is a little disappointing. Will go back, but if it happens again, we will definitely address with management.

I thought I knew sushi but boy was I wrong. OP has a sushi roll that was outstanding. Also ordered the special (Halibut) that was sublime.
Every course, every drink was amazing. A real gem OP is. Can't wait to go back.

Excellent service. Appetizers and sushi exceptional. Entrees and sides were not on point. Saw our food sit in the kitchen for a bit so clearly the Brussels sprouts and steaks were not as good as good as they could have been.

Food and service was great, but the air conditioner was broken and no one came over to table to apologize, host said the air was fine and another person stated the air was fixed and should be circulating soon. By the time it was fixed we were done our food and sweaty and stinky.
