We went for dinner, an earned evening out from friends. Nice place situated at the end of the business district nestled in the Desert Ridge area. Great ambiance, clean, professional setting which makes it pleasurable for business, nice date, or family gathering. Good menu, clean fresh taste, and nice service. Bit pricey, so leave your small wallet at home :)

We had dinner last night and Josh our server was just amazing! He went above and beyond to make our dining experience wonderful. I had eaten at the Ocean Prime in the Detroit area and I asked if they had the same cocktail that I had there. He said that they didn't, but if I could tell him the ingredients, they could recreate it for me. I had no idea what the ingredients were and ordered something else. He came back with all the other drinks for our table, including the drink I had originally asked for!! They had called the Detroit restaurant and got the ingredients for the drink!! All of our dinners were wonderful. I would recommend this restaurant over and over!

I have dined at Ocean Prime several times. This was a most miserable, and embarrassing experience. The easiest appetizer, shrimp cocktail, came five to ten minutes after the other appetizers were served. The three meat entree's were cold. The side, a baked potato was delivered and we had to ask for condiments. It took almost forty minutes for dessert to be delivered. There are other places I can utilize which have much better service. Not a good night, and I might add the place was not crowded at all. Looks and acts like a place that is going out of business.

The dining experience was superb! Server Kyle is absolutely outstanding! The food is fantastic. We traveled to Phoenix for a funeral; our family members came from Arkansas, Minnesota, New York and San Francisco. Despite our grief of having lost a loved one, Kyle and all of the rest of the support staff made our evening extremely enjoyable. Great ambiance, professional, courteous and consistently excellent service. Fine dining at its best for sure! Much appreciated! Thank you so much! Dr. Cohen

Excellent experience. We celebrated my wife's birthday and they could not have been more accommodating. The service was excellent. I gave a 4 star on the food only because my steak was a bit tough, but when I mentioned it to the manager when he stopped by, he graciously took it off of the tab. I explained that I wasn't asking for that, but he did it anyway. Kudos to Ocean Prime for going above and beyond in customer satisfaction. I can't wait until we return.

Their Sea Bass is always on the money. Perfectly grilled Filet paired beautifully with the Lobster tail both done exactly as requested!

Very nice place & great service, the lobster tails are very small, steaks taste great, at least the filet did,, had to send the lobster potatoes back, they were like soup, second plates was little better, don't recommend them, sides are very expensive, but pretty typical for this type of restaurant, If your going to spend over 150 for dinner & no drinks, I prefer Papadeaux, better food and a more casual environment. The callimari was good, not worth 19.00

Extremely slow service from Heather. Initial drinks were served after a nearby table ordered and were served AFTER we ordered. Wine was ordered when Heather told us our order would be out "...soon;" wine was the served halfway through the meal. I ordered soup. Heather placed a soup spoon in front of my wife—who had ordered salad. My wife and I ordered the filet. Heather placed a steak knife in front of my wife, and a normal knife in front of me. I asked if I could have a steak knife. Heather brought the steak knife, laid it down on the table in front of me, and said something to the effect of, "These, now you have a big-boy knife too." We will not be back.
