Ocean Prime - Philadelphia
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.

Awesome all around. Highly recommend
Surf and turf special was delicious - filet mignon was expertly prepared. Michael made us feel extra special on our 10th anniversary. We will be asking for him when we go back. Thanks for a phenomenal night!
The restaurant was perfect for a get-together between old friends. The noise level allowed easy conversation, the service was great and personal and comfortably paced. The food was delicious. It’s pricey, but all worth it. Highly recommended.
Only reason I gave 4 stars was due to valet wait of 35 minutes. Food, service, ambiance was a 5!
Leah (spelling) was awesome! Short black female bubbly personality. She knew the whole menu and the specials. We even teased her about it and asked her if she had to take the menu home and memorize all of that? Lol. She had a sense of humor and she checked on us regularly. I meant to fill out the card but after my few Berries and bubbles , I forgot. Oops
Loved the calamari, shrimp cocktail, devil eggs, sea bass and the crab cakes!!!!!!!!
Always a good time and a great meal.
Good service makes it even better!!!
I love celebrating love at the Prime. The staff always finds a way to personalize the dining experience. This time, a fun champagne cocktail that made the couple feel special! It’s official, the Prime is my go-to restaurant for feel good memories!
The wait staff was very knowledgeable about the food. I appreciated his expertise.
Post theatre dinner. Typically opened at 5PM, now take resevations starting at 345PM. Excellent 3-course theatre menu for $49 with great selections including scallops and filet options. The lobster bisque is phenomenal. Everyone loved their meals cooked perfectly! Service is always great too! Sundays they offer a surf and turf option too!
Food and cocktails were outstanding and the service was impeccable. Highly recommend...I am still full. Definitely a gem!
EXCELLENT!! Had a wonderful time with a group of 10, and every plate was empty! Service was great, definitely would recommend.
Irish Mike was great and made the experience even better!
We enjoy d a fabulous evening with Michael, he was a most gracious and proud host. I traveled up from Maryland to treat my parents for Fathers Day. The party of 6 is still raving about the experience. Thank you. Harvey.
Wonderful service, the meal was good but for the price we expected better
The best food I’ve ever had at a steakhouse, and I’ve been to many! Delicious homemade dessert with French press coffee, very nice staff and very comfortable seating. Can’t ask for much more.
It’s always an amazing treat to dine with Ocean Prime. My only complaint is the Valet company they are contracted with . Dining at Ocean Prime a standard of excellence is expected , and the valet service is less than subpar .
As always the Cameron Mitchell chain uses high quality ingredients, prepared perfectly in a comfortable environment with excellent service.
We made our reservation online & mentioned that we were celebrating our anniversary. We have done this previous years, at different restaurants and our anniversary was never mentioned during our visit, but at Ocean Prime, our table was waiting for us with rose petals scattered across the center. Every staff person that passed our table wished us a happy anniversary, some even stopping to ask how many years we've been married! We received a complimentary dessert & glass of champagne! Besides the special attention, the food was incredible. Best lobster bisque ever and the halibut special was out of this world!!
Even though some of our party was delayed the staff really took great care of us
Great time food was amazing beautiful atmosphere
My husband and i celebrated our wedding anniversary at ocean prime. The main meal was good not exceptional but the dessert was the best. Appetizers were great as well. OUr waiters name was steve. He was nice but a guy name brandon who served us stood out more to us than steve. He was very kind, spoke back with a pleasant smile everytime we spoke to him or asked him questions.
Had a wonderful birthday dinner ! Will come back !
Great location, busy place with a good atmosphere.
Simple the best!!!!! From the staff to dinner and desert. #1 in the city!
Ocean Prime is amazing. This is bypart the best restaurant in the Philly area
We (party of 5) start at the bar; great mixologists and awsome martini (vodka), Manhattans.
We all ordered a unique dinner. Shrimp coctail, onion soup and the "The Seafood Tower" were just perfect plus warm pretzel bread for all to share. No one does steak better than Ocean Prime and the combo surf & turf was a great visual and delicious meal.
Top shelf operation: Kudos to Tricia.
Thanks, we will be back!
We absolutely loved the ambiance of the restaurant. However the televisions are a terrible distraction. We wish ocean prime was a tv free fine dining experience. We wish you had beautiful music or a piano player. Why can’t there just be fine dining restaurants that do not have televisions in the background. More opportunities for couples to disconnect from technology and just be with each other. The food and service were amazing.
Had dinner at Ocean Prime to celebrate my parents' retirement. I was very impressed. The service was very good. Food was delicious. Manger stopped by to chat and offer my parents congratulations. They brought us dessert on the house.
Overall, we had a great experience. Prices are high, as you would expect from a Center City steakhouse, but worth it for a special night out. I will definitely go back.
The service was tippy-top-of-the-line! Pro-level stuff. From the hostess Morgan to our server, Joel - they made my entire party feel special.
A Kansas City cut of beef was so highly recommended, it was impossible to pass up. It was fair at best. The taste of the meat itself was far overpowered by the bleu cheese accompaniment. My nephew ordered this cut as well, though with the foie gras. He thought his dinner was only fair as well. My thought is if you're recommending something so fervently, it really has to be special. My son's filet was better.
My dad and brother had scallops over risotto and they were great.
Delicious food! Our service was great! Valet parking was excellent! Will definitely go back!
A family birthday celebration brought us to Ocean Prime and it was an excellent pick. It’s a beautiful room visually with attentive and friendly staff. Service all around was excellent and our meal was nicely paced. The food was absolutely delicious (my husband chose surf and turf, our son had the filet mignon,and I had the sea bass) and all was served at the perfect temperature. We’ll definitely return.
It was our 29th wedding anniversary and the experience was memorable
My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience at Ocean Prime. The service was impeccable and our food was outstanding. We started off with two delicious cocktails, then had the calamari appetizer to share. Both of our meals were delicious and we were eager to tell our family and friends about our night out! We would both absolutely recommend this restaurant to others.
My husband has food allergies and our waiter worked with us to find foods that he could eat. The peanut butter mousse-chocolate dessert was incredible!
Was visiting from out of town. Outstanding food and service. Would definitely come back again.
I took my fiance here to celebrate her Birthday with GREAT meal. We had reservations for 2 early before a show on Sunday late afternoon. We were one of the few tables there at the time. (Memorial Day weekend which made sense) We were promptly sat in a nice booth. I had requested something not next to the kitchen and mentioned we were celebrating a Birthday. Thanks Ocean Prime!
We were greeted by our server Nick who was amazing! He recited all of the specials to us as well as offered suggestions when asked. Both suggestions on wine pairing and cocktail pairing were spot-on. GREAT SERVICE!
We were also greeted by the FOH manager John. (I usually do not like these visits because management does not usually introduce themselves and take their time at a table, just seem to be "doing a job") This was not the case, this was simply Great Hospitality.
Now just as important...the FOOD WAS EXCELLENT! She had twin lobster tails and mussels as I enjoyed a salad and Surf and Turf with Filet and poached Lobster. Everything was cooked perfectly. :) She enjoyed the Lobster tails without any needed butter (although supplied) and my steak was just as pink as desired.
Is Ocean Prime Expensive? Yes, but the experience is worth it.
Thanks Nick, John and Ocean Prime for making my Fiancee s Birthday a very special Day! Kris and Heidi (the purple fedora) @bydesigndj
We celebrated our anniversary and it was amazing! Rose petals on the table. Romantic booth. Server spot on. Blackened Snapper out of this world good. And the Black Orchid cocktail is amazing. Can’t wait for this place to get to Chicago!!!!
This restaurant was awesome. Everything was on point from the time we walked in to the time we left. The service was awesome and the atmosphere was just so great. We will definitely be going back.
Excellent service! Our meal was outstanding! Will definitely return...
