We had a wonderful dinner. Our server Carol and assistant server Brandon made sure we had a great dinner service and always made sure we had every thing we need throughout the night. We shared great laughs with other staff members as well. Our birthday boy enjoyed himself and that was due to the great food and staff. We will definitely be back!!
Really the best decision i made to spend my birthday here i enjoyed everything .
It was the one of the best dinners I’ve ever had! The martinis were amazing and our server Leah was great!
Trip was a great waiter
Perfect , food , drinks , great time
We were there for my mom’s birthday - unfortunately our steaks all came out overcooked, and the server was really disengaged. It was our first time there, and I’ll try again just in case we had an off night - but just a bit disappointing. Nice ambience and drinks, though!
Birthday and they brought a dessert - wonderful service.
Both the food and service were very average.
I truly enjoyed my first experience at Ocean Prime. The food was amazing and the service was very good. The steak literally melted in your mouth!
Fabulous food, service and experience!
The food was really good!! The place was packed full of people and yet the service was prompt!!!
We have been to Philadelphia many times but we've never tried Ocean Prime for dinner before. We've been missing out all this time!! What a wonderful experience our dinner was! I had made reservations about a month in advance - because, from past experience at other restaurants, - weekend dining in the city can be difficult to get into. We had come for the Philadephia Flower Show and were staying at the Sofitel Hotel (not too far from the restaurant - so it was within walking distance).
The service was outstanding from beginning to end. Our waiters tended to all our needs. The menu was diverse with plenty of choices. All your sides are a-la-cart and are extra on top of your main meal choice. A lengthy wine list to choose from (glass or bottled). Everything was wonderful except we both had undone loaded baked potatoes. We mentioned this to our server - who promptly told the manager - who came over to apologize and took it off our bill. She was outstanding in the way she handled the matter. Its this type of service that makes your experience a good one!
Keep in mind - this is a more high end restaurant - so everything adds up quickly. The ambiance is very comfortable. We notice that had side rooms for larger parties as well. The noise level was a bit loud - but it was a full house. We made reservations for 6:30 and was promptly seated to our table within 5 minutes.
We'd definitely would come back or try some of the other locations (such as in NYC or Tampa, FL)!!
Our waiter Michael was the absolute best staff member ever he was entertaining attentive and made us feel special
One of the finest dining experiences I’ve had in a long time. From when you first walk in the door and greeted by the hostesses to the time the check comes. The hostess took her time to give us her recommendations on some the food to the waitress assistant (Jeremy- who just got promoted to a waiter) to Carol our waitress and her finesse knowledge of the entire menu. She also recommended a great wine as well. The calamari was the best I’ve ever had and comes highly recommended by virtually every employee we encountered that evening. Random people stopped by our table and asked if we needed anything and how was our evening and how was the food. Everyone who worked there did it with a smile on their face and helped as a team which is rare to see these days anywhere you go in the service industry. Everyone enjoyed their job and it showed. The filet was cut with a butter knife and is grass fed beef. One of the finest steaks I have eaten. I intend to return as soon as possible and look forward to another amazing dining experience. Anyone who goes there surely will not be disappointed or let down. A truly awesome time and the food was excellent. Don’t forget the calamari. Absolutely the best!!!
My wife and I dined here for our 5th wedding anniversary and we are glad we did. From the service to the great food all the way to the thoughtful gesture of complimentary dessert and champagne. This has been added as a favorite for us and we will return, soon.
Drinks were awesome! Very creative. Loved the Bubbles & Berries cocktail! We had pre-theater dinner. Everything came out in a timely manner. Cooked just as we ordered. Popcorn was put on table & was very tasty. All the little extras like the soft pretzel sticks in the bread basket was Avery great touch!
Beautiful restaurant with really good food. And pretty expensive.
This was our second time there. We went for restaurant week in January and we’ve both been craving the food from here. We both got the same things that we ordered the first time we went. Service has been fantastic both times.
Three friends enjoying a wonderful dinner with great service after a full day at the Philadelphia Flower Show. The ambience was a warm and the staff friendly. Ocean Prime was a great place to land, after weathering the snowy Philly streets.
Incredible experience...food was fabulous and service was impeccable. I highly recommend Ocean Prime for all occasions.
It was a wonderful experience for the 1st time there
They really made my husbands ‘ birthday very special. Food was superb!!! Service outstanding.
Amazing food and service! Some of the best quality food you will find
Such an amazing evening for my birthday! The food and service was excellent!
As people who work in the restaurant industry, and have a toddler, we never ever get out. We were celebrating our birthdays so it was a big night for us. First, we sat at the bar and ordered drinks, shrimp cocktail and oysters. They were outstanding. Jenna, the bartender, was extremely friendly and made us feel so welcome. When we moved to our table, it was no different. We had an amazing meal and our server was perfect. (I think his name was Ryan?) Overall, we had an amazing night.
Nice atmosphere and great food and drinks .. great night
I thought the service was very slow and the oysters that we ordered were very sandy.
Our waiter Michael was wonderful and our table location was perfect.
Food and service were excellent
All-around great experience. Food was fantastic, we all had seafood of course! Lobster tails, Chilean sea bass, grouper & snapper... all cooked to perfection. Sides were also perfect. The Nice cocktail menu too! Service was spot on as well. Definitely would come back again.
It was a very enjoyable experience the food was great the service was great it was jus a wonderful way to spend my birthday
Dinner for my boyfriend’s birthday was great!
The BEST it’s nothing more to say. This restaurant is absolutely one of the top in Philadelphia. I’m actually going back this Saturday.
My visit to Ocean Prime was awesome. The occasion was to celebrate my friend birthday. Ocean Prime did everything I expected. The service, food, atmosphere and drinks were great. My total dinner experience was great. Please tell leah she was fabulous as our server! I will returned.
Amazing food Amazing atmosphere outstanding service
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
Drinks were better than the food. Waited a really long time for dinners and 3 of us got 3 different versions of “medium rare”
Food was awesome and waiter was very good very personable and helpful
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!!!
