OCEAN PRIME is a modern American restaurant and lounge from renowned restaurateur Cameron Mitchell.

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.

We went for restaurant week in January. The Caesar salad was mediocre and underdressed. The calamari was good. We all got the filet Oscar and we all thought it was very good. For desert we had lemon sorbet and chocolate, chocolate chip ice cream...both were very good. The service was great. We sat in a booth on the second level, I would highly recommend doing the same, it felt like we had some of the best seats in the house. Over all a very good experience and food.

It was my first time there and I enjoyed it. The atmosphere was great. The food was delicious. I ordered the teriyaki salmon with shitake sticky rice, ceasar salad, and carrot. The server was polite and efficient.

Very delightful place to enjoy our 3rd anniversary. Food was great and somehow surprised me because they’ve got Asian fusions too

The service was good but our meal and drinks didn’t come out on time. I have eaten here before but I do think the food is very pricey and this wouldn’t be a regular restaurant I attend.

During Restaurant Week, Ocean Prime was extremely busy and, therefore, the noise level was higher than usual. My colleague's steak was cooked to perfection. The salmon was delicious. In spite of the full restaurant, we were seated immediately and the service was exceptional.

Two people in our party ordered filet medium well. Both steaks were brought out medium rare. One was replaced but the other girl didn’t want to say anything.

We were here pre-theater during restaurant week. The place was busy, but not so loud you could not talk. The service was outstanding, the pace of the meal was good, and the food was very good. The special menu was a great value and offered sufficient choices. It would have been nice to have some vegetables with the salmon entree or to be offered vegetables to add as a side. Other than this small thing, everything was wonderful.

We hit the Trifecta Friday evening.....Philly Pops, Ocean Prime & Restaurant Week!! We were first timers for Restaurant Week in Philly. I thought the entrees would be smaller in portion or selections less appealing. Was I wrong! Best filet, salmon and crab. 5 layer carrot cake with a lite pineapple delicious. Don’t pass up the Bubbly & Berries cocktail..... entertainment in a martini glass! Great service by Abby& Selena. Lovely!

Went for restaurant week ($35 dinner). Great service and pretty decent portion size. Filet was slightly over cooked and cold. After some added salt the meal was enjoyable.

Our waiter was great, food great. We had someone in our group have an allergy to seafood and are waiter was so good about letting us know it was no problem. We went Restaurant week and we were celebrating family that got married. Our waiter brought champagne to us before we all left. It was super nice of him to do that.

Although the food was very good, the waiters could not remember who ordered what and we were seated in the waiter area upstairs which was not acceptable.

My 15 year old son and I visited Ocean Prime during restaurant week. Although we often visit various restaurants I like to take him to a 4 or 5 star restaurant when finances permit. Rashaan Durant was our server and he was one of the best waiters we had at a restaurant. Even my son added a few of his dollars to ensure we provided a decent tip. The food was amazing and my son said “the steak melts in your mouth and the knife just glides right through it”. Our overall experience was IMPECCABLE to say the least! We are looking forward to coming back and we will certainly be requesting Mr. Durant to be our server.

We had a great date night at Ocean Prime - there was a good energy (actually a high energy). Our server Maverick was absolutely fabulous - so attentive, professional and easy to interact with. He was a definite highlight! Food was delicious and came out with great timing. Thank you Ocean Prime, can't wait to come back!

Diff portion size every time we go. Got sea bass twice in one week and served smaller size on weekends. Also server forgot extra sauce for desert and we wanted to oversee cocktails but waited 20min for our server and decided to make a drink at home. The food was good but not worth the $225 we spend on 2dinner and 4drinks
