A truly wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary! We were greeted at the door with champagne and our table had rose petals sprinkled around. Food and service were outstanding, charming waitress, exceptionally good cocktails. Very highly recommended. Only drawback was a very loud guy at the bar.

Valentine’s Day. To much going on and too crowded. They tried to pack people in a small space outside. Bugs flying around and getting on the table.

My husband and I decided to celebrate Valentine's Day this year at Ocean Prime, we're very happy we did!
Jake our waiter made our dinner experience one of a kind . He was very attentive and always approached our table with a big smile . The calamari appetizer was delicious!!! My husband ordered the Surf & Turf and I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass... They were flavorful and mouthwatering! We asked Jake for dessert recommendations, we highly recommended the warm butter cake . It was AWESOME!
Thanks Ocean Prime for a great night !

I have eaten at Ocean Prime a couple of times a year for the past five years or so, but would be somewhat reluctant to go back for awhile.

The service and food was good, but a little less quality of food than I would have expected for the price. The special filet mignon my date had didn't really taste any different than mine which was the standard 8 oz filet on the menu. Our table server was very attentive but the long list of specials was impossible to decipher and remember. I twice had to ask for the volume of music to be turned down. It made it somewhat difficult to have a quiet intimate conversation.

Overall I was quite disappointed with my dining experience there on Valentine's Day.

Yes, I would recommend Ocean Prime to a friend but with some reservations and precautions.

Food was very good, but the service was lousy. Our waitress disappeared for almost 20 minutes at a time. It took 30 minutes for us to get our bread - never were told about the specials. The GM came over after dinner and asked about our experience and at that time I explained what happened. He did take off a percentage of our bill and apologized numerous times. We will give this restaurant a second chance, but not right away. I only complain when asked about our dining experience.

The food was absolutely amazing! We were surprised with a greeting of champagne flutes, rose petals on the table and an Anniversary dessert. I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the time the staff took to make our day even more special. Everything was just spectacular.
This was our first visit to this restaurant and we will definitely be coming back here for lunch and dinner.

Food was very good but was a little pricy
Steak was very good but not extraordinary
Chilean Sea Bass was dry the blackened grouper was the best thing we had for an entree
The pound cake with berries & ice cream was the best thing on the menu to split

My wife and I chose Ocean Prime for our anniversary dinner because of other good reviews and the fact that we had never been there. We could not have been more pleased! The food was fantastic and the service - from start to finish and every level of server/staff - was absolutely superb. We left thinking that this was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had. Hats off to great management that has created a truly remarkable culture of exemplary service.

Started with freshly squeezed cocktails. Followed by Ahi Tuna and Surf & Turf apps. Cowboy ribeye seasoned and cooked to perfection with a crispy, buttery outside. Truly amazing!
