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.

Celebrated our 35th anniversary. It was great. They put flowerettes around candle on table to note special occasion. Wait staff great. They were humble, gracious, professional but yet personable. Ramsey was our head waiter he was great even though he was a patriot fan. The entire restaurant staff from beginning to end made us feel really welcome and excited that we were there. We will be back.

My boyfriend and I were out in the city later than planned and found a last minute open table reservation on Saturday evening. The crowd at the restaurant was an odd mix - a lot of older people and what looked like a few bachelorette parties. We had not planned at dining at a nicer restaurant, so we were a bit under dressed, but we did ask the host/hostess and they said it was fine. Our table wasn't clean when we sat down and our waiter paid little attention to us. He didn't even bother to run through the specials for the evening. We shared 1/2 dozen oysters, he got the scallop entree, and I had the shellfish cob salad. Scallops were very well cooked, the salad was good but did have a little too much dressing. Everything tasted fine, but for a $90 dinner (without drinks), I would like a little better than "fine". In a city with so many great restaurants, we won't be going back.

Great as always. It seems weird that a restaurant named Ocean Prime would be great at steaks but they are. Good bread and salads and seafood of course. Nice wine list and drink list. Service is always stellar.

The food and service was great. However we were rushed - in and out within 1 hour. Not sure why. We didn’t say we needed to get to the theater.

Restaurant is in a prime location, food was OUTSTANDING, and the service was fast, friendly, and professional. The Theatre Menu was an amazing deal for anyone who needs to grab an early dinner before a show in Philly (I think they serve it before 6pm). Will definitely be back here!

Great place, service was the best. Waiter, manager and staff were all very knowledgeable and attentive. Lots of specials and they were well versed on the type and texture of the fish. Food was well prepared and tasted great. Blackened snapper was perfectly done. Extensive wine list and plenty of drink options. Wine list is a bit pricey so choose wisely.

The restaurant is very nice service was outstanding but honestly the food is over rated for the price the Calamari was so over powered by the sauce you almost didn't know what it was you were eating. I had the Florida Grouper and fair at best. The sauce was the same it really didn't fit the dish to over powering. Two main dishes two apps and one sorbet was $156.00. I will not return. Better flavors else where. The chefs need to go to Djerba and a few of the 5 star hotels there and have an experience matched by nothing else. Ocean Prime take my wife to Djerba with you and get some pointers on Grouper.

My wife and I were celebrating our 15th anniversary and everyone from the hostess to the chef seemed to know. The service was tremendous and the staff was super knowledgeable about the menu items. The food is an experience that everyone needs to experience at least once in their lifetime. This truly was a great dining experience . They made our night.

As a Exec Chef for many years a chef in other brands and a person who truly appreciates great food and service, I was in awe the whole time sitting down facing the kitchen. Its my nature to be vigilant to a kitchen. So I watched the Sous Chef Felix, I believe his name is, as he orchestrated the kitchen on expo and his team adhered to his communications. Amazing. Very clean kitchen. I watched him wipe all the plates and make sure all dishes were impeccable before hitting the tables. I always compliment the Chef on duty when I go out and didnt think he would come out to thank me but he did which was very appreciated. The manager on duty was very kind and warming. All staff were knowledgeable on menu. The crab cake I had was great. My steak didnt come out the right temp at first but the grill cook got it right the second time. I didnt want them to toss out a steak so I just asked for it to go up a temp and he got it spot on. Jeremy (Mr Robust), my server was a great young man who sold me the menu very well. Nice young man. I am coming back again. Its one of my favs now. And its definitely a place I would work at because its am amazing place and I truly am in awr of how good the food was. Thank you for making my night great.

This was one of the worst dining experiences we’ve ever had. We were there for an hour before we got our appetizers. The food was mediocre at best. Mixed drinks were watered down. Quality of the food definitely did not match the price. I would not recommend this restaurant to
