Average service and hit and miss food.
Premium cost does not merit good quality and service quality.

My wife and I went to Ocean Prime for the first time. It was a great experience and the food was excellent. Our waiter went above and beyond to ensure we had a great experience. I ordered the Alaskan king crab legs which were amazing, my wife had the scallops which she said were great as well. Overall, we had a fantastic experience and we are looking forward to returning to Ocean Prime very soon!

We love Ocean Prime. But Saturday was not a great experience. We were led to a table that wasn't set and we didn't get any silverware until we asked for it when the appetizer came. The bread service was delayed, too. My girlfriend's medium-well fillet was presented to her medium rare and she sent it back. The corn, which we always get, was not prepared as it usually is, which is slightly grilled and a little zesty. It was just plain old corn. Ocean Prime is a great restaurant but not on Saturday.

We picked Ocean Prime for our 2 year’s anniversary. It’s where we had our first date, where we celebrated our 1st anniversary and where we intend to come back for the years to come.
Food is incredible and there is no corkage which is awesome but it’s really the customer service that makes it special. From hosts to waiters to food runners... everyone does an incredible job making sure we have the best time.
We had again an amazing time last Saturday and our waiter Jon Lynn went above and beyond to ensure we had a good time.
Thank you.

Everything was great, as usual. When we arrived, we said it was our annual get together and we wanted a leisurely lunch. When plates were cleared and we only wanted coffee, not dessert, server was obviously not pleased and was ready for us to go, even though she had open tables in her section.

Not as great of an experience as our previous visit. Nate provided great service. The ambience was cool. The food quality, portion relative to the price didn't meet expectations. The lobster tails , I would be surprised if it was 2 ounces. My Nevertheless, celebrated my wife's Birthday, which is what was important.

From the moment we walked in the service was outstanding. the server did a awesome job meeting our needs as the three couples ended up coming in at different times. The food and the drinks were superb. Will continue to planned future dates at the restaurant

Wonderful experience at Ocean Prime for our anniversary. Was greeted with complimentary champagne then taken to a private large table with rose petals on it! Great service and food was incredible.

Both lunch meals were very marginal as was service provided by our server. At these prices all meals and service should be at least "good". Very disappointed.

Frequent diner here. Yesterday was mediocre. Asked for fish over mushrooms instead of corn bread and got 4 mushrooms with a whole bunch of green beans and onions. That was disappointing. Ate it anyway bc I go there all the time so I didn’t want to complain

I made a reservation for 3 (myself, my wife and our daughter in law school in Tampa)at 7:15pm on 2/15/20 on Open Table. The reservation was made over 3 weeks ahead of time. When we arrived at 7:12pm, there was a line of people ahead of us and all parties in the line in front and behind us were told their tables were not ready yet and asked to wait or go get drinks in bar area. After over 30 minutes of waiting, myself and several other parties went back to find out what the problem was. We were finally seated 35 minutes after our reservation. There was NEVER an apology from the staff, and manager NEVER came over to apologize either. This is unacceptable!
Food was good, but have definitely had better in multiple other cities around the country. Great waitstaff and service at table.

We had a parents night out and enjoyed it very much! Jordan was our server and he was wonderful! On point with everything! He even noticed our table was wobbly and had John fix it! Food was delicious and loved the location of our table. Loved our experience as my husband and I hardly go out! Thank you!

The food and service was excellent, but it was not quite the romantic evening we were hoping for. It was so loud in the restaurant, we had to yell at each other the whole night. Not sure if it was one specific thing, or more of the combo between the bar, music and the amount of tables that were crowded so closely together in a small area. Although we had reservations for over a month, we were promptly stuck at a small table in the middle of the walkway by the bar, the hallway to exit to the reception area/exit, which barely even made it into the actual dining area of the restaurant. We were also greeted with champagne flutes for our anniversary (very sweet), which then later came up on our tab (surprising), to which we thought was strange, considering it was given to us as "compliments of the house," but we don't make fusses over those things and just thought it was odd. At other locations of Ocean Prime, we've been seated in private and even enclosed booths with curtains when mentioned it is our anniversary, so the experience was a little lackluster compared to other cities and years we've visited the chain!
