The food at Ocean Prime was delicious! Our waiter was very attentive and the atmosphere was classy, upscale and professional. My fiancé and I went there with a few friends after spending some time earlier in the day for our engagement photo shoot. I ordered the salmon and my fiancé ordered the blackened red snapper, both dishes were savory. The staff was kind enough to surprise us with complimentary dessert as a kind gesture for our engagement.

Our steaks and lamb chops were very good but Capital Grill, Ruth's Chris, and The Palm blow away the sides, salads, and creme brûlée.
Wedge salad and creme brûlée were just average.
Cramped seating made service awkward and atmosphere was not relaxing.
We're glad we tried OP but won't return.
I know OP is a chain but its competitors are, too, and they are much more satisfying.

Food and service was good. But the star of the meal was the Old Fashion cocktail. This drink was the hands down best I've had. If you enjoy a good whiskey please go here maybe during their happy hour. It was beyond compare.

The food was very good although steaks did not come with any sides included so be prepared to pay a la carte, adds up to a pricey meal. Sign at the door indicates that proper dress is required but judging by the millennial who was seated with some pals at the next table halfway into our meal and was dressed like a slob, the dress code doesn't seem to have been enforced, we would have preferred that it had been.

I requested a booth, it was my wife’s birthday we brought our three boys. We’ve been to much more finer upscale restaurants than this one & I believe when they noticed we had our children, they told us our booth was unavailable so they moved our table, they put us back in a corner next to the bar which was pretty embarrassing. To present yourself as an upscale restaurant you better perform as an upscale restaurant which in this case Ocean Prime did not.

Host staff and Bar experience down stairs was exceptional but cocktails coming from the service bar upstairs were delivered about half full.

Service support (Brandon) was excellent.

Server was accommodating by allowing us to modify our order but forgot to place parts of our order (sides) which we finally received after speaking with the food runner, our server, and eventually the manager when we were nearly done our meal. When dinner came we did not have fresh silverware and the glass of wine I had ordered with dinner was nowhere to be found.

It was evident our server (Ramsey) was more concerned with other larger tables (guessing there was an auto-grat) and a family of regulars that were sitting in front of us as he and another server were falling all over them with wine service and ongoing discussion.

Also the Bleu Cheese crust that was ordered for the steak came out on a side plate and was essentially oil and warm cheese.

It’s a shame that this happened as we were having a very nice evening for my wife’s birthday until we became such an afterthought.

We will not be returning.

After a few recommendations from people I know. They were right, this place is great. The food and service was on point. I took my wife there for our anniversary and she loved her food and drinks. Then loved on me later for such a wonderful dinner. LOL!!! Thanks Ocean Prime. We'll definitely be back!!

Despite the nasty weather getting there, we had a wonderful dinner at Ocean Prime. Service was impeccable and dinner was delicious! We took advantage of the Sunday Surf and Turf special. The steak was outstanding and cooked to perfection. My scallops were yummy and those who had the crabcakes made them all disappear, so I guess they were good too! So glad we made the trip.

I always enjoy this place because the ambiance is dynamic. But the food is delicious and the staff are always very kind. The manager, John, approached our table and took personal interest in making sure that as guests we were satisfied. We, as patrons who have been coming to Ocean Prime since they first opened in 2013, appreciate the warm-hearted welcome from this restaurant. Thank you for making our night a pleasant one!

We ate here after a night at the Ballet, we were about 30 minutes early for our reservation so we were hoping to get seated early but that didn't happen, actually we got seat almost 15 minutes past our reservation time. After this minor annoyance everything else was fantastic, our waiter and the food were top level.

Everything we ordered, the appetizers and the meals were delicious. The filet mignon was perfectly cooked with a nice exterior char, it was so soft I think I could have cut it with a butter knife. Its one of the best filets I can remember eating. My wife's lobster bisque and scallops dish were exquisite, she enjoyed every bite.
Our waiter was great, he was friendly, social and made sure we were always looked after.

This was a memorable experience and I will definitely be returning to Ocean Prime for a repeat visit.

Restaurant is truly a beautiful place. Hostesses are really on point. The dining room Manager John was amazing. He went out of his way to let us taste 2 bottles of wine that he thought would go best with our meals. Extremely professional and talented. Our server was not the best. He seemed to not fit in with the rest of the staff since they were great. Steak wasn't seared as they say at 1200 degrees but none the less very delicious. This is a great place and can't wait to you back when I'm in the area.

Have eaten here a few times. The food is always good, not more than that. Probably worth the cost. Portions are small. The broccoli/cauliflower dish was remarkable. Service is also good not more than that. The place is absolutely consistent, goods but not somewhere I would exert effort to get to. Nevertheless, if you're in Center City, the food is reliably good.

We had never been there before so I didn't really know what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is delightful and upbeat. Good to take a first date or romantic date here. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly. I ordered from the Theatre menu and it was an unbelievable deal. There are a ton of restaurants in Philadelphia to choose but I am so happy I picked this one. Truly a gem!

Ocean Prime? This location should be called Ocean Grime! The sidewalk up to the front entrance was covered with filth. Nothing a good scrub down could fix. I actually saw graffiti scrawled along the exterior of this restaurant. Really Ocean Prime? You can do better than this! I wasn't impressed with the interior either. Atmosphere didn't have the super swanky vibe, that , I normally experience at other Ocean Prime locales. The D.C. location in particular looks like the Taj Mahal compared to this rundown looking hole. Despite the sign at the door stating proper dress is required, I still saw several people arrive in sneakers and jeans.
I arrived on time for, my reservation but was told to wait in the bar area. After being seated, I noticed several other couples were told to wait also. I waited for fifteen minutes and still no table. I soon realized the restaurant was overbooked. I decided to leave...didn't want to get caught up in the tomfoolery. No dinner at all...not even a piece of bread. Will not grace the cruddy threshold of this Philly location again!
