I had high hope going here for the first time. For a seafood restaurant, the quality was subpar. The snapper I had was not fresh and was over cooked. Everyone said their meal was “ok”. Meal was $415 inclusive of tip for three people. Not complaining about the price, we had a number of drinks and the place was packed and lively. I will give them another try next time I’m in Tampa, every place can have an “off” night.

Had a very intrusive and gabby waiter. Almost obnoxious.
Servers here are not as professional as they once were.

They accommodated all of our requests, including a booth and setting up the table especially for our friends birthday with confetti and one of the desserts on the house! We will definitely be back!! Loved all the appetizers we tried (4) and we ordered all the side dishes for the table which were all excellent, not to mention our main courses! We were sad the peanut butter pie was sold out. The other thing is they kept confusing who had pellegrino vs fiji water (there were only 3 of us) and they didnt ask before refilling the glass, so that was a bit annoying and one reason for 4 star on service.

Outstanding as always! Ocean Prime is always the guaranteed go-to when you want a first class dining experience. The entire staff is incredible. You can tell that the restaurant expects nothing less than perfection from the staff, and they don't disappoint. Smiles all around! Nathan, our server for the evening, was first class all the way. Ask for him when you go! And the food - wow. This time we just told Nathan to keep the seafood coming. It was wonderful. Always a treat. Thank you again Ocean Prime. We'll see you soon!

Took my 9 year old daughter in for a Daddy-daughter date on a Friday night. Was concerned it might be a little too grown up of a scene, but she wanted to eat somewhere good steak and seafood, and we were able to get a reservation that afternoon. OP was surprisingly kid-friendly, and even offered an inexpensive and amazing filet Mignon on the kids menu! I had the sea scallops over orzo and we split a Prime roll and shrimp cocktail. The food was fantastic, the service was very accommodating, and we had a really nice time. Although located by the mall and a major road, the setting overlooking the large lake makes you feel like you're dining at an exclusive and hip country club. My only feedback might be that they seem to have significantly reduced the amount of lettuce offered with the wedge salad, from what used to be the size of a quarter of a cantaloupe down to a quarter of a grapefruit, which left me wanting more. Still excellent however. Maybe most impressive, the hostess called the next day to ask how our experience was, and remembered us from the night before. Given that they probably have a few hundred people come through there on a Friday night, this was an excellent touch. Keep Ocean Prime on your short list for date night, family night, or a meeting with clients you'd like to impress. I had not been in awhile and forgot how good it is. I recommend taking an Uber (or whatever), as parking is tight and traffic is heavy around there on the weekends.

This restaurant was absolutely amazing. Our server, Louis, was top notch and the food was indescribable. The Chilean sea bass was probably the best fish dish I have ever had. Atmosphere, service, drinks, food, it was all outstanding. Highly recommend.

Everything at Ocean Prime was outstanding — the wait staff assistants and the waiter were always available, without hovering. The unique food offerings were interesting. Too bad I could only have one entree because everything sounded delicious. We were celebrating a birthday, and they had decorated our table with nice birthday confetti. The specialty cocktail was incredible.

My husband and I went here for the first time just for a date night and were very pleased. The food was amazing and fresh. Even the sides and appetizers were uniquely special. Not in our budget for regular dining but perfect for special occasions.
We were impressed with the outdoor seating area. The weather was gorgeous which made it even better, but the outdoor seating seemed to have nice accommodations (like fans and maybe heat lamps above?) which made it very comfortable.

Absolutely amazing experience! I had made a note in Open Table that we were celebrating my sisters birthday and even I was surprised when we walked up to the table and there was birthday confetti! Beyond that the service was impeccable. Everyone that saw the confetti would stop to say Happy Birthday to my sister and I had possibly he best waiter ever (Curvin - hope I spelled that right!) Come to find he was new and had only been there for 2 weeks! Beyond that the food is always amazing and this is a favorite of ours!

We had an absolutely wonderful experience at Ocean Prime. Everything we ate was spectacular - from the deviled eggs with caviar to the calamari and fresh crab cocktail to our dinner of Filet Mignon and lobster tails. It was delightful. The service was stupendous - great attention, timely visits, but nothing overpowering.

We will return! Thank you, Ashley for making JoAnn's birthday dinner so wonderful.

A restaurant like this should not charge patrons 5.00 to valet park. This cost should easily be absorbed into what is being charged for drinks and food.
