The service was wonderful. The food was just as good!
Excellent food and tremendous service! We went for a nice dinner after a Spring Training game and had a wonderful time!
Our server was friendly and attentive without rushing us
Food was delicious
Definetly be back to try other Lunch menu items
Very nice, quite and intimate dining. The service was exceptional. The food was very good but a bit pricey for every day. Sunday Surf & Turf is fairly priced and plenty of food to satisy.
So happy to again dine at Ocean Prime. Whenever I fly into Tampa, this is a must-stop for me. This evening I had the filet mignon from the regular menu , even though there were a number of steak specials to tempt me. It was tender, succulent, and medium rare just as I ordered. My side was the asparagus which is the perfect accompaniment. My companion ordered the grouper from the menu, which made me happy because I got to sample that, too! Delicious and perfectly prepared. We also had the wedge salad, ample, and tasty. We were pleased to learn we could mix east and west coast oysters as our appetizer. What a treat! I need to also add that I’m always pleased to enjoy Cohn cab with my meal. A splendid time!
Been before no problem.. Saturday the service was very bad... We were six people party And no one checked about drinks or if we needed anything before or after our food came..Ordered and just sat there no bread no drinks reordered.. Could have ordered a pizza delivered there in that time and had something to eat while waiting for our drinks and dinner
I came here for my birthday dinner with 6 friends. I requested a half wrap around booth and was told I was get exactly that. I also requested a specific server.... instead I got sat I. The back room in the corner at a regular table with very small chairs... and the server was not the one I requested. The server took very long to take our orders and it took 45 minutes for them to bring my drink out to me... I eat here often and was looking forward to this dinner, but was very let down
Reserved table for outside dining was ready upon our arrival. Service was prompt, well educated on the menu, and courteous. I was celebrating my wife's birthday and they had appropriately decorated our table and they made a point to wish her happy birthday. The free dessert was very nice. We particularly liked the fact that we were not rushed and were allowed to enjoy a relaxing extended dining experience. My craft cocktail was prepared superbly; my compliments to the bar tender. The live background music was exceptional and set the mood nicely. The calamari appetizer was prepared perfectly; one of the best I have ever had. Salads were fresh and crispy and exceptionally prepared. Our main courses, scallops and salmon, were prepared to perfection and a delight to our taste buds. We topped it off with an excellent crème brulle. My only three negatives were a wine list that I felt was over-priced for some of the selections, bad acoustics that made it had to converse and a side dish of parmesan fries in truffle oil that was soggy and oily.
The food was delicious and the service was great! Our waiter was very personal and remembered us from the last time we were in.
Great service. Great food. Excellent drinks.
We had a very memorable dinner. Food was great and the service was fantastic! We will be back!
Waiter could have been a little more attentive. Didn't offer to bag up salad that my daughter didn't eat. Didn't inquire if there was anything wrong or if she wanted something else.
Because of the waiter being inattentive we decided to have dessert somewhere else.
Very surprised in the service.
If ur staying near the airport, very convieniant. Good 45+ crowd, had steak one night and fish the next, good not great. Oysters small and expensive. Deviled eggs ok. Service was good. Overall I would go back next time in town. BTW...they advertise they have cigar bar..not...have a humidor but no smoking. Not a big deal, just don't appreciate being mislead
Our experience was absolutely amazing...food, service, and ambiance! We loved every thing about Ocean Prime!! We will be back for sure.
The service and the food is the best you’ll ever taste. It’s a little more pricey than first class should cost.
We come to this location every year for our anniversary and it is wonderful every time. Food is outstanding. Cocktails are really good and the employees are all wonderful. We live over an hour a way and it is worth the trip every time.
The staff was very friendly from the hostess stand to the waitstaff. My aunt had an amazing birthday celebration there. Thank you!
It was excellent, service was great food excellent this place is a 5 stars. We were seating outside at the patio the weather in Tampa was wonderful.
Great dinner. Great wait staff. Out door area is quite noisey when sides are down. But overall excellent.
Perfect pick for a 40th birthday celebration. We arrived at the table which they had decorated with Happy Birthday Confetti. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was amazing. A must try.
Always excellent service and great food
We booked our reservation through Open Table and indicated that it was our anniversary. As soon as we checked in we were greeted with 2 glasses of Champagne and escorted to our table that had a great view of the fountain. The whole experience was great. There were rose petals on our table and staff wished up happy anniversary throughout the evening. The food was great and the wine recommendation on point. All in all a great experience.
Outstanding! We found the sushi delicious. All our courses were well executed!
Great service, we will return each trip to Tampa. And we shall go to the Orlando store soon.
Great service! Attentive staff all the way around ! Food was excellent.
Have eaten at Ocean Prime many times before and they never disappoint! Service and food are always 5-Star. We were celebrating a birthday but there is no need for a special occasion. Ocean Prime is great for every day dining.
Our server was very helpful and understanding of my guest's special requests. Food and atmosphere are always dependably good.
We were greeted with a nice glass of champagne and a warm smile by the hostess. All of the staff was friendly and professional. Our waiter was knowable and courteous and the food came out quickly and perfectly prepared. The waiter engaged us and explained the menu after finding out our preferences. We had the goat cheese ravioli which was amazing and fish entries. My king salmon was cooked to perfection and the lobster, pea and gnocchi accompaniment was delicious. Since it was our anniversary we both had dessert, I had the warm butter cake which was served with fruit and hand made ice cream and it was rich and wonderful. My wife had the carrot cake which was huge and at least 12 layers and it was tasty and came with ice cream as well. We ate beyond reason and should have split a dessert. This is the place for a special occasion in Tampa.
It’s extremely consistent which is key! Love this place
Absolutely AMAZING dining experience. Food perfect and staff very accommodating and friendly! From the Bubbling Berries drink (showstopper) and the Scallop/Brisket appetizer through dinner everything was perfect. Loved our waiter and the whole experience - would go again in a heartbeat!
Service and food was impeccable. Great dining experience.
This is my favorite “Fancy” restaurant. This is my go to date night spot. Love the ambiance and high class culture!
iT WAS FANTASTIC....CAN'T WAIT TO GO AGAIN TO CELEBRATE A SPECIAL DAY.
Service and food was excellent! All staff excellent! My opinion a 5 ⭐️
American-style fine dining at industrial scale, replete with the requisite Lamborghinis parked conspicuously outside the valet station. A little bit expensive for expensive's sake, but the food is good and the service attentive and friendly. It's billed as a seafood restaurant, but it's really "surf and turf". The wine list is mostly overpriced California vintages and big distributor mass market labels.
Ocean Prime Tampa sets the bar high for other local restaurants! It’s a great Saturday night spot. We visit yearly from NJ. Wish the NY OP was as good. Cole was a great waiter, and JT is second to none behind the bar!
The food and service were excellent. Very classy atmosphere and very nice decor. The ahi tuna tartare was very good and I enjoyed my lobster tails. The peanut butter pie dessert is one of my favorite desserts ever. I look forward to returning
Ocean Prime's recently renovated outside area is great! I would highly recommend sitting outside. The food and service was top notch as usual!!
based on past business diner at Ocean Prime I decided to take my wife. We arrived 20 minutes early and checked in at the front reception area. Since we were early are table was not ready and the hostess asked for my cell number and stated she would send a text when our table was ready, so we headed to the bar. At the bar we had a few drinks ( excellent service), however after 20 minutes I had not received a text from the hostess so we headed back to the hostess desk and found they were seating people with reservation later than ours, I questioned the hostess she immediately took us to our table. our Waiter came over and took some more drink orders and again it was excellent, but this is where it turns south. The waiter took our orders, my wife ordered the 6oz filet minion medium well, and I ordered the Kansa strip with shrimp scampi topping. medium and we ordered 4 sides.. first out was our steaks followed fairly closely by the sides. the sides were extremely bland. My wife's steak was blackened on the outside but done medium well on the inside and I knew they had cooked it to fast. as for mine it seamed at first to be cooked very well, that is until I cut into the steak twice and realized the center wasn't even warm and the steak was about as raw as it gets. I explained to the waiter the steak was to raw and even showed him the center, he offered to return it to the grill but I declined as I do not feel a partially eaten steak should go back to be recooked. A few minutes later the manager came by and asked again about the steak, and I explained it was well under cooked, he stated to me that when a steak has a bone it makes it harder to cook. Wow! really, he offered to recook it but again I refused. I would have expected a high end steak house to either offer a new steak, or remove it from the bill not to make an excuse such as it is the bones fault. I did tip the waiter well because it was not his fault and he did a very good job overall.
We sat on the new patio and it was fantastic! Large, open air space, but they have all the climate control options one needs for unpredictable weather. Sliding clear window shades to protect against the wind and rain, overhead heaters that are individually controlled for warmth as needed. Overhead fans to cool you down. As the evening progressed many of these options were employed to adjust the comfort level of the customers, which provided the best atmosphere for dining. As always, the food and service were impeccable. Jared was our server and did a fine job allowing us to dine at our leisure ... such an enjoyably paced dining experience. Afterwards we listened to Brad sing and strum in the lounge. Such a talent! Thanks Ocean Prime for setting the standard!
