My sister and I were passing through Tampa and had planned to dine in honor of my late mother's birthday.

We loved everything about it, the service was friendly and exceptional. We had reservations, but the rest of our party was delayed, the hosts did their very best to accommodate us with no fuss at all.

We loved the piano bar as well.

Very pleased with how the restaurant treated our anniversary occasion. Beginning with a champagne toast, numerous staff wished us well upon entry and the restaurant scattered rose petals on a beautiful table overlooking the fountain. Service was outstanding throughout and we enjoyed everything we ordered. Fantastic and hearty warm sour bread with whipped butter was a great start, followed by their hearty lobster bisque with solid and flavorful chunks of meat throughout. My filet was well flavored and perfectly seared, the sea bass was outstanding and light, and both the mushroom and truffle mac sides were fantastic. The mushrooms, in particular, were loaded with garlic and flavor and sautéed to perfection. We also received a complementary dessert and thoroughly enjoyed the warm butter cake. The restaurant even called the day after to check in on how we enjoyed our meal. We would DEFINITELY strongly recommend this as a spot to spend a special occasion over several other nearby restaurants in the same tier (e.g. Eddie V’s, Ruth’s Chris).

We were very pleased with our dining experience. As foodies and food critics who love fine dining, everything about Ocean Prime delivers. From the moment we arrived, the hostess was gracious and accommodated our seating request. With a spectacular view, we marveled over the wine selection and chose a great red blend. We also enjoy a few specialty cocktails, which were very good. The calamari had a very Asian flair and was inviting to our palettes. The bread was hot, our dinner was full of flavorful spices and yet the servings were plentiful. We completed our experience with the hot butter cake, served with ice cream and berry sauce. All of this food and wine was coupled with an extremely attentive server, Adam. We were so pleased with our experience...we will definitely be returning. Thanks to the servers, staff, chef and management. Job well done!

My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary and once the staff found out, they brought us champagne and placed red rose petals on the table. The food was good (Chilean Sea Bass and Ahi Tuna). The Lobster Bisque was prepared a little differently than we were used to and tasty. After dinner we were offered complimentary deserts which we told them we don’t eat so our appetizer was comp’d. They were very prepared to make us feel special. Our server was very informative and attentive to our every want. We had a very nice experience.

I had a larger group (12) in the private room on June 27 under Kilker and on June 25 under Floyd and the food was amazing. Couldn't wait to get back there as it quickly became a favorite. On July 3 the service and atmosphere was fantastic but was disappointed in 2 of the dinners. The filet was cook superb at Medium plus but the Strip was Medium well and was suppose to be medium rare and the sea bass was a tad bit "fishy". The arugala salad and the French onion soup were amazing. I love fine dining and I guess the disappointment is that for the money expectations are high. For what it's worth, that's the feedback

I truly have never had a bad meal at any Ocean Prime! The oysters app and halibut special were outstanding! They also serve fantastic aged prime beef! Service from Brian Atwood was impeccable! He knew his menu! Expensive, yet worth it!

Exceptional food and service. Ambiance is conducive for special occasions and business discussions. Creative salads on the luncheon menu, and you are assured that everything is fresh and first quality. The word "OCEAN" normally denotes this to be a seafood restaurant, but the "PRIME" refers to their steaks, and is often overlooked by the general public as a great steak restaurant. Their steaks rank right up there with the finest you can buy anywhere, including Chicago and Kansas City! Cocktails are more expensive than area competitors, but are worth the extra price! JS
