Wonderfully professional staff, exquisite food, not a place you’re going to go for “value” unless you judge value by the quality of your experience. If that’s how you judge this was the greatest “value” I’ve had in my lifetime.
We didn’t know hell was going to break loose but I am grateful that this was our family experience before the worst came

Good experience. Food was delicious. Ambiance was beautiful. Service was a bit slow (too many lags and looking for server). Was disappointed that I expressed it was a birthday but there was no offer of any type of celebratory dessert or anything (although I saw many other tables with dessert and candles). Other than that, good experience.

Great Pre-theatre dinner.
Filet was done perfectly
and was the best I have had
all year. The snapper was
excellent, with the corn bread.
And the butter cake with ice
cream was a great finish.

I had a very nice experience at Ocean Prime - my first time there. When we arrived for our reservation (a Saturday evening), we had to wait about 10 minutes for our table, which was fine. This gave us a few minutes to look around. The bar was hopping and looked like it was filled with a very happy mix of people of different ages. Definitely a vibrant sophisticated upscale setting.

My companion got the crabcakes because she heard that there excellent and she really enjoyed them, I opted for the grouper, which our waiter, Maverik, said was an excellent choice - probably his favorite, It was wonderful!

Service was cheerful and excellent, food was great and the ambiance terrific. My companion and I lingered with our coffee and after dinner drinks and there was no sense of being hurried.

Food was delicious and service was great. The only downside was the price. $200 per couple was a little steep.

Our waitress was great! She had plenty of recommendations for us with food and drink. We couldn't decide on our entrees so we decided to share and they split the meals for us. The food was amazing and the drinks were delicious as well. Will definitely be returning.

We enjoyed a delicious pre-theater dinner at Ocean Prime. The service was fantastic, we received great suggestions for wine and well-informed recommendations for the entrees we were considering. The food was wonderful and we were too stuffed for dessert.

Where to begin. This place was not worth the price we paid. First trying to get a drink at the bar was impossible. A large group had cleared out before my boyfriend and I sat down while waiting for our table to be ready. A couple that sat down next to us at the same time were asked TWICE if they wanted a drink before we were asked. Then the guy proceeded to not even make the drink after we placed the order! By this time the bar wasn’t even busy so I don’t know why he couldn’t just make the drink.

The lady that walked us to our table and our server Jeremy were the only pleasant part of our experience. The food was slow to come out and was not worth the wait. Calamari was over cooked and hard and my crab cakes had more filling then crab meat. My boyfriend’s fish lacked seasoning and was mediocre at best.

For a restaurant that cost as much as ocean prime does I expect overall better service and food. There are tons of other places to go in the city with better food for a better price. I will not be returning.

Beautiful, modern interior with a lively ambiance. Food was fantastic although the sides were smaller portions. We ordered 4 sides for 5 people and it was just enough. Well paced experience and would certainly return.

The food was delicious from the oysters, missed the mignonette sauce though, salad was fresh, I had the teriyaki salmon with sticky rice so good. Also tried a piece of spicy tuna roll that was good too. The Berries and Bubbles drink was amazing to drink and look at. Expensive though but great quality.

Cant say enough about the food. The recommendations from our server were spot on. Everything was delicious.
I do feel the tables were too close to each other though. Wish there was more distance between them so guests sitting next to you on either side werent so much in your face and conversation.

The valet parking needs more space and more drivers. It isn't cheap.
I gad to ask if they had a coat check as this service was not automatically offered. My party had a very nice table.
Our server Naheem was attentive and personable. Service and food were as I would expect from this caliber of restaurant. The restaurant was full snd was quite noisy ( this is a comment and not a criticism).
We had an enjoyable experience and will definitely return

Came here for my boyfriend’s birthday and overall the food was just okay and completely overpriced for the portions and quality. Spent almost $200 on a lackluster meal for two, with one person getting a single glass of wine, two apps, a sushi roll/salad and salmon. The only saving grace was our waitress and the calamari. Completely outrageous and will not be back.
