Ocean Prime - Philadelphia Ratings and Reviews
The food was good as usual I order the 8oz fillet and my friend ordered the crab cakes. Our sides were garlic mashed potatoes and creamed spinach... every thing was great! The service was impeccable!!! My server was Steven, he is amazing!!! Both managers were very attentive to what we needed. I visit this place often.
I ate at the bar which may have impacted my experience. There was an Eagles game on, and all of the servers were distracted by it (and rightfully so) Ordered a rare filet which came medium. The bread was re-heated. The truffle popcorn at the bar and the ahi appetizer were delicious though. This may have been an OFF night because it was recommended by a few people as awesome.
We dined here after the Army/Navy Football game, and were really looking forward to a nice meal. Service was slow and often times, non-existent. Water was only refilled after we tracked down a server. Drink orders took 20 minutes. It Took over an hour to get our meal and when we did get it, it was probably the saltiest, fishiest piece of Sea Bass I have ever tasted. I would have sent it back, but our server NEVER checked on us after we got the meal. When we were finally done, it was a different server that cleared our plates. She noticed that I had maybe taken three bites of my fish, but didn't say a word when she took my plate away. It was another 20 minutes before we saw our server again, and by that time we just wanted our check. All in all, we were there for two and a half hours. It was clear that no one really cared.
It was our first time to Ocean Prime and they didn't disappoint. Food was fantastic, flavorful and perfectly prepared with all the right special touches. I only gave it 4 stars for service because they forgot our bread basket and we had to ask, but when it came, it was warm and delicious. We will definitely be back.
Excellent service and excellent food. Usually a steak place is not known for their seafood and vice versa but not here as seafood and steaks were great. Manager also stopped by our table to see how everything was. It is surprising how many so called top notch restaurants you never even see the manager.
Service was excellent. Server very attentive and professional. Ordered crab cocktail and twin lobster tails. Crab cocktail was an extremely small portion for an outsized price. Twin tails were disappointing. Over seasoned rather thin and small tails. Would rather see a single meaty tail. Disappointing for a high end chain restaurant with ‘ocean’ in its name. Want great lobster? Check out Eddie V’s.
We celebrated my sons 8th bday.. Everyone was soooo sweet to him and my other 2 children.. The manager stopped passed our table twice and conversed with them and complemented their attire.. The kid menu is amazing. Lastly they treated him to a dessert of his choice.. My son was sooooo happy..
Took a friend there for her birthday. She loved it. The food was really good though I think it was a little pricey. The service was excellent. We also really liked the decor and the ambience. The noise level was low. We were able to have a great conversation without having to speak over loud music. I definitely recommend this place and I would definitely go back.
Wonderful service from our server Carol, she was a gem!! Our dinners were perfectly prepared, Filet Mignon, Salmon, and the mac/cheese side, outstanding. Our drinks were delicious and bubbly. All in all, a fantastic evening with awesome friends and excellent food, beverages and service supplied by Ocean Prime!!
I went there before a concert... I had a great combination of sushi roll, oysters, and Seafood Cobb Salad. The salad is definitely a meal in of itself. Oysters were fresh. Over the past few dining experiences, I have really enjoyed the various sushi rolls available on the menu.
My husband and I had dinner on Thursday night for our anniversary. Irish MIKE was our server and he made our experience wonderful and enjoyable. MIKE was professional, pleasant, friendly and an excellent server. I would defenitely recommend Ocean Prime for a great meal and ambiance. Thanks to MIKE for making our anniversary dinner special and a perfect night!
Ocean Prime was recommended by hotel staff. It is decorated beautifully for the Christmas holidays. Went to bar first as I was early for my reservation. Belvedere martini delicious. As settling account before heading to my table, the young female bartender took my payment and short changed me. When I brought this to her attention, she grabbed the bill and money out of my hand and said, " I did not know you wanted the correct change." What??? Then she proceeded to give me a "boat" load of pennies. She should learn some manners. Does she not work for tips??
My waiter, Michael, on the other hand, was friendly and very pleasant. His and his assistant's service was impeccable. Attentive but not over bearing.
Had a 4 pm reservation on a Sunday but did not get served till 5 PM. Wait staff worked hard but menu items were terribly slow to be delivered. Other than th beef filet, every other item had far too much cheese and tasted like a home cooked meal gone really bad.
Don’t have a 4 PM reservation if you are not ready till 5 PM.
The lobster was very good and the chef even took a special request for the prep on another item we had, and even gave us a brief tour of the kitchen. The signature cocktail with the dry ice (bubbling) presentation was also tasty and unique. Very friendly manager, sous chef, and waiter during our visit on 11/20/17
This was our second visit to Ocean Prime. The food was excellently prepared and beautifully served on both occasions.
Staff was friendly and attentive but not overbearing.
I mentioned that we would be celebrating my birthday when I made the reservation, and as a result, my dessert and coffee were complimentary - a very nice touch.
Even though it was a busy Saturday night, our meal was leisurely and relaxed, not at all rushed.
We will definitely return.
Normally, when I dine here- we get seated in the main room. Took a good amount of time to get seated even though we were on time (even a little early). However, even though I had made these reservations in advance- we get put in this private room with no atmosphere and the only table in there for a while. Food was good as usual -service was ok. Might be a while till I come back. Nothing impressive.
