OCEAN PRIME is a modern American restaurant and lounge from renowned restaurateur Cameron Mitchell. Located in Center City at the intersection of 15th and Sansom Streets, OCEAN PRIME Philadelphia delivers an extraordinary experience to guests. 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.

The servers were very friendly so is the Manager
The ambience was as I expected, good to have a conversation, couple drink and good laughs.
The place is traditional, Asian, etc love it!
Food was very tasty, definitely recommend the steak, is amazing, salmon was great too, over all food was really good.
Drinks were on point.

Hostess weren’t too alert.
Presentation on the dish was a little poor.
Dishes were too small; a bigger portion won’t hurt anyone.

The experience I have received at dinner pretty much sucked .
I have made the reservations prior so it could be one less thing to worry about even though I think they did not have a record of it because of their facial expressions said so. Anyhow we may have sat down for ten minutes before even knowing who's taking care of our table , My waitress sucked he must of thought I was going to be a waste of time so I did not get the service that I would normally get . If I sit at your table ask me if I want a drink and if I'm ready to order anything to start , pretty simple right? not I'm my case . They kept me thirsty ,they did not pass out hot bread like they should I only managed to get one alcoholic beverage and 1 cup of water thought out , they did not even have macaroni and cheese like how do you run out of that. Overall the food was fairly ok the lamb chops were under seasoned and the Lobster Bisque was cold, my main concern was the service I received

The food is excellent; the bread is the best part, the filet is fantastic. Tuna tartare is amazing. My boyfriend’s steak was over-charred and they could not have been nicer about it. Butter cake is the best dessert!!!

The food is always phenomenal. However, our waiter made the experience very enjoyable. He knew the menu well to provide suggestions and could describe how the dish was prepared. He was very attentive without being overbearing.

The noise level was a little loud. I think it is because of the openness and the large ceiling. I found myself having to shout at times to engage in a conversation. Perhaps a few white noise machines strategically placed may help the situation.

Nice evening overall, the food was good, but not great, hence the 'value' score.

My husband and I had the pleasure of dining at the restaurant for Valentine's Day. Our waitress was attentive, quick, and overall stellar (I wish I recalled her name), the food was delicious as always, and the Rittenhouse Room was a welcome surprise for our 9:15 PM seating.

food was great. jerome was fantastic with getting us everything we needed. Nice place to eat. Poor customer service and care for their customers though. I had an issue and they showed no accountability that they were wrong

The food in this place is explosive. Everything I’ve had on the menu is a must have. Best Chilean sea bass around. Service was excellent. And the ambiance is great

The entree was excellent but the strawberry butter cake was not completely done on the inside. I shared this with the server and while he took it back he didn’t apologize and appeared as though he didn’t believe me. I never complain about my food so for me to send it back something was definitely wrong. I didn’t like the manner in which the server reacted to the situation. The manager did apologize for the inconvenience.
