Seafood
OCEAN PRIME is a modern American restaurant and lounge from renowned restaurateur Cameron Mitchell. Named “Best Seafood” by Arizona Foothills, AZ Business and North Valley magazines, OCEAN PRIME Phoenix delivers an extraordinary experience to guests. Located on High Street off exit 32 and the 101 and across the street from the J.W. Marriott Resort, it’s the perfect choice for cocktails or an indulgent dinner, any day of the week.

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 our smoking shellfish tower, 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.

The restaurant was fairly plain for an upscale restaurant. Our server was efficient however had no enthusiasm in her interactions with us. The food was good but I expected perfect seasoning for a place at that price point. The fish was unremarkable and the potatoes tasteless. The corn and my steak were very good. I would say it wouldn't be high on our list for a return visit simply because I did not find the quality/value for the price fitting.

From the moment we were greeted and seated to when we left the restaurant we had first class service.
The wait staff was on top of our water and our wine. The food was cooked to perfection. My snapper and my wife’s steak were delicious.
We’ll be back!

Our last night in Desert Ridge. Golfers we played with told us about it. The crabmeat cocktail was a special treat. We asked to share a brandy Alexander made with ice cream and no ice, which is the best way. It was fabulous!

I very much enjoyed the quality of food and atmosphere at Ocen Prime. I was a bit surprised to see that our waitress had a razorback tank top on and she had a large tattoo showing. I was not expecting to see this in this caliber of restaurant.

Food was very good. Scallops fantastic- little disappointed in the quality of the steak- Service just ok. We saw our server exactly three times over the course of the 2.5 hours we were there and one time was to deliver the bill! I think he forgot he had our table. He actually forgot to bring us our dessert until he saw me looking for him and when I caught his eye he ran and got it- blamed the chef that he was backed up....poor taste. Tables which were sat 30-45 min after us were were served before us. For. High end restaurant - this never should happen!

We decided to dine in for restaurant week. The salad and filet were outstanding. The carrot cake not so much. It tasted a little rough. Hard getting A fork through it. Our waiter did ask us if we would like something different but we declined. It was a great evening and we will certainly dine there again As we have in the past.

Two reasons to drive from South Chandler, Restaurant Week and 24th Anniversary.
Seated at a high top table in the bar area is only table available for 6:30. Took about 1/2 hour to get our salads after ordering cocktails. Not in a hurry so that was good by us. Wrong salads, but they were exchanged immediately. The waitress felt so bad she gave us a 2nd round of cocktails. The special salad wat outstanding.

I ordered the Filet and my wife ordered the Halbut on Lobster Risotto. Both were excellent and delivered as ordered. The deserts were better than expected.

We will return.

We went for restaurant week and ended up having one RW special and one Surf and Turf special. We were seated on the streetwise patio so there was plenty of distancing and such. We started with happy hour drinks- Tequila cocktail ($10) was very very good but I was glad I wasn't paying the regular $15 price, house wine was adequate.

My surf and turf was good. The steak I had was properly cooked a but under seasoned and did not have much flavor. Common for a filet, but when sauces are $7 that's a bit much for me. The Surf was Shrimp Scampi. I found the shrimp just a touch this side of overcooked. The butter sauce was tasteless and as it was served with the steak the flavors did not mix well. Spinach/Bacon side was piping hot and fabulous.

My wife's Halibut fish was good but she went goo-goo over the lobster risotto. Best she has ever eaten....wants more.

We shared the 5 layer carrot cake- very good but too much icing for my taste.

Restaurant is beautiful but it appeared over occupied per country restriction. We would come again but likely just for the happy hour. Glad we tried it.

We at outside due to covid,.tables were very close together, not much air flow, did not feel safe. Will not return till after covid is controlled. Food was very good, service impeccable, but the filet and scallops restaurant week entrees have not changed for the last few years.

We celebrated our anniversary during Restaurant Week and enjoyed the pre-fix menu offerings.
The house salad was loaded with greens, apples and nuts.
The scallops were large and succulent with an amazing parmesan risotto. We added béarnaise which just added to the already decadent meal.
For Dessert we ordered the peanut butter pie and the multi-layered carrot cake.
It was a wonderful evening
