I reserved this restaurant for my husbands birthday dinner. I specified via open table the occasion was celebrating a birthday. Our waiter didn’t mention anything regarding his birthday, so when showing us the dessert menu I was taken aback, thinking they’d bring a happy birthday dessert or some sort like other places. The waiter said he didn’t even know. Very disappointing and wouldn’t celebrate another birthday here.

Great food & great vibes. Although up top, the lighting isn't the best so it's not a great area for pictures if you get sat up there.

It was my anniversary dinner. The service was very slow. It took 20 minutes for our water then he left and came back 10 minutes later to take our drink order. Then another 15 minutes to take our entree order. Not to mention the food was not great. Luckily for us we set next to a nice couple so the conversation was great. I would never go back. We had the crab cakes and the ribeye. The mash potatoes and the warm butter cake was the only good thing we eat that night.

Usually one of my favorites, this time was noticeably not at par - service was slow, food over-cooked and bland, generally not hitting on all cylinders. A bad night or trend, not sure.

Food was unfulfilling. I was still hungry after 3 appetizers. Would not order apps from here again. It is better to just get dinner.

We were surprisingly underwhelmed by our most recent trip to Ocean Prime. Our writer's assistant never brought our bread or drinks despite those being his only responsibilities. It was incredibly busy despite the fact that we took the latest reservation at 10pm. Our drinks (an Old Fashioned & Manhattan) were initially served with bar ice which would have quickly melted into our drinks, significantly watering them down. Our tuna tartare was solid. The sea bass was a little dry to the point of being tough/chewy. The lobster tails were not served warm and tasted like leftovers. In all, it felt like we were at an overpriced Friday's or Applebee's. We may come back for lunch but we'll probably pass on the weekend dinner scene.

Seated at 8:20 and did not leave until after 11 pm. Chose Ocean Prime to share exciting news with my wife. We had a series of service mishaps and errors that resulted is a VERY poor experience.
1. Drinks took forever
2. Server saw my wife in tears after I shared our exciting news. I then ordered 2 glasses of Champagne to celebrate. 10 minutes later server came over and said our selection was on ice getting chilled. 5 mins later he came over and said that they did not have the champagne that we offered and he would bring a substitute.
3. Sushi roll was absolutely delicious!
4. Lobster bisque was the best I ever had.
5. Main course took a while because we were really enjoying ourselves.
6. When main course came, we heard the gentleman carrying the tray say “oh my god”. He then scurries out of the room with the tray.
7. 5 mins later a manager came in with an order of colossal shrimp cocktail that we did not order. She said there was an issue with our main course and the chef sent the shrimp to hold us over. Absolutely delicious!
8. 20 mins later my wife’s scallop entree came out and my steak. The person delivering these items said that my sides were on their way. I asked what happened with our first order and she said that there was a spill.
9. 10 mins later I flagged down my main waiter because my side never came. He ran back and reordered them. By the time they arrived, I was already finished with my steak. Luckily my wife shared her risotto with me. BTW, my steak was likely the original steak that was brought out as it was not hot and was not medium. I think it continued to cook as by the time I got it it was more cooked than medium.
10. We ordered dessert and our waiter was intuitive enough to have a chocolate congratulations accent added. Unfortunately it was accidentally given to the table next to us. When our waiter came over, he noticed that we were finished with our cappuccinos with no dessert. He looked mortified and offered to get us a new one.

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.
