Daughter really enjoyed the steak on the kids menu and wanted to return for her birthday only to find the steak was no longer on the kids menu. We were only given an option to purchase a 6 oz $42 steak and the server wouldn’t honor the request of well done. He said it had to be medium well ply plus. It came to the table running red and she wasn’t happy, however, asked for it to be cooked a little longer. In the end she no longer wants to dine at the restaurant. We were okay with the price but unhappy with our child’s disappointment in what was to be her celebration. Which in fact the restaurant never acknowledged even though I stated that what we were coming to celebrate.

Pepper our waitress was very attentive as well as knowledgeable about the menu, made some amazing suggestions I do not regret! Berries and Bubbles is a must have drink! The overall atmosphere was calming yet energetic at the same time. Will definitely eat here again. The crab cakes are amazing as well!

Food was really good. However, restaurant is overpriced. We were located in a table behind the bar really away from piano. We were expecting a nice and romantic ambiance but it was nothing like that just noisy environment without a chance of enjoying live music. Very expensive and experience does not equal value.

The service was fantastic while the noise level is bad. The food is rather too expensive for the taste and overall presentation don’t have wow factor. I would bet my money on the calamari on other cheap restaurants than here.

We visited for the first time on Saturday to celebrate a birthday. When we got to the table it was decorated with confetti for the occasion. Our server, Issaac, was prompt and polite. The food was INCREDIBLE and well worth the price. We each had a steak and shared the asparagus and mushrooms. All the staff, from the hostess to the bartenders, the servers and managers were outstanding. We were seated outside with a view of the water. It was a chilly night but it was covered and heaters were running so it was comfortable. We got a complimentary dessert which was the warm butter cake and was PHENOMENAL!
The next day, someone from the restaurant called to follow up and ask how our experience was. I couldn't have asked for a better date night!!! And I know the birthday boy was just as pleased! I HIGHLY recommend this place!!!

Ocean Prime came to us by recommendation. We enjoyed the experience, atmosphere is great, very energetic, food and service was excellent. The issue was the noise level, it was just my wife and I sitting on the outdoor porch which is enclosed and has heaters in the ceiling. We had a hard time carrying on a conversation sitting side by side. This is a deal breaker for us as we love to sit and enjoy our time at dinner and chatting about various things. Sorry but this was our e perience.

Another great experience at OP! Beautiful Tampa evening of outdoor dining with good friends. Food was exceptional as always. The seafood salad melted in my mouth. The butter cake was a delicious and decadent way to end the evening. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Tampa Bay!

Really enjoyed our pre flight dinner. The highlight was our server Pepper. She is on our list as one of our BEST waitresses of all time. Great personality which was a bonus. But a real professional and her service was just amazing. We will come back. Thank you for a fun evening.

Restaurant was was very busy and noise level was on the loud side. It was difficult to have a conversation. Food for the most part was delicious and well cooked. However, I ordered the ribeye steak and it was on the tough side and difficult to chew. I was disappointed.....

I have eaten at other Ocean Prime’s. The food was good. The restaurant was exceptionally crowded and noisy; Incredible for a Wednesday night. I guess that says something about the restaurant.
