About Ocean Prime - Tampa
OCEAN PRIME is a modern American restaurant and lounge from renowned restaurateur Cameron Mitchell. Named “Best Outdoor Scene” by Tampa Bay Metro and “Best Seafood Restaurants in the Bay Area” by Creative Loafing, OCEAN PRIME Tampa is an extraordinary dining experience. Located in the International Plaza shopping center, the restaurant is a short drive from Tampa International Airport, Raymond James Stadium and George Steinbrenner Field.
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 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 Tampa an ideal place.

Ocean Prime - Tampa Ratings and Reviews
OceanPrime is one of my favorite restaurants in Tampa. Food is great. Atmosphere is lively. And the staff is amazing. Top to bottom. Managers. Servers. Bar tenders (who make you feel like you are visiting their home). Just an amazing experience every time. And if you get to sit outside on a nice night, even better!!!
The ambience is wonderful. The staff is delightful. The food is ridiculously amazing. The one issue I had was that a reservation was made and even though there was one small request (a booth preferred), our party still had to wait 37 minutes after our reservation time to be sat. A nice gesture for the restaurant since you could see they were busy and there were quite a few parties waiting (not sure if all had reservations) would have been to have a server or bartender stop out in the lobby to see if anyone would like a drink whilst they wait. Usually getting a reservation means getting sat about that time - a few minutes is acceptable, but over a half hour seems excessive. Hopefully this doesn't deter too much our expectations for our next venture here.
Would have rated excellent in all categories, except for the screaming kids running around and disturbing everyone. They were in the Boardroom and kept going in and out running to and from the bathroom area. It was so bad that the seating section across from the Boardroom closed their curtain, however, I am sure that did not help at all.
A cancer patient who have been undergoing treatment since April 2016. First dinner date with my husband in a very special restaurant. The meal was not ruined due to the quality of the food and the superb service, but was not what I expected due to the noise and distraction from the screaming kids. No one disciplined them, not their parents, other guests in the Boardroom or management which was very disconcerting.
Another great lunch with friends. The food was outstanding and the service was very good. We had a late (1:30pm) lunch reservation so we were probably between shifts. The lunch and dinner service in the past has been generally more attentive but we enjoyed our meal and the waiter was pleasant and professional. We will go back as this is one of our favorites in the Tampa Bay area.
Met my son and his girlfriend for a late lunch. The food was excellent and the service was exquisite. Because it was late afternoon, there was not many people there so it was very quiet. The wait staff wad very attentive and the food was presented very attractively and was delicious. All in all, it was a great lunch.
The ambience was upscale and vibrant but the quality of food was just decent. I highly recommend for the happy hour; however, I would not recommend this place for formal dining. We are foodie and we don’t mind to fly to different cities for the great food. My husband ordered ribeyes with pepper and I ordered bone&filet with pepper as well but the steak was drowned in salt and crushed peppercorn—way too much salt and pepper. It was absolutely absurd and we couldn’t finish our meals after two bites and had to bring home for take out. Unfortunately it later went to the garbage can. We would love to go back and highly recommend to other people IF and only IF the quality of food improved.
Our anniversary dining experience was awesome! Drew, our server, answered all our questions, explained certain selections, and highlighted some of the options we hadn't considered. Drew's timing was impeccable and his focus on us enhanced our special occasion. Definitely recommended for that "once a year" romantic dinner. The staff followed up the next day with a call to see how we had enjoyed our anniversary dinner.
Everything from start to finish was exquisite. Our waiter was fabulous - knowledgeable, able to suggest alternatives to preparation and ingredients to fit tastes and allergies, very attentive throughout. Ambience was excellent; busy for New Year’s Eve but not excessively loud. And the food - we had the sea bass and the grouper - everything was perfectly prepared and delicious. Probably the best wine by the glass list I have ever seen. We have eaten at other Ocean Primes in various locations, but this one in Tampa was far and away the best.
NYE 2017 dinner was our first time here. Just my boyfriend and I looking for a an intimate high end dinner. The atmosphere was less than ideal for that. We were sat outside which was fine I guess (though they never asked our preference). View and weather was nice. However there were three large parties around us, adults and children alike were loud. Then the live music started. Seemed out of place for the occasion and location plus it only added to the noise. Food and service was fantastic but it's hard to enjoy when you have to yell at your waiter and your date.
