Ocean Prime - Tampa Ratings and Reviews
My husband took me here for my birthday and it was perfect! I got all dressed up in a really nice dress and wondered if I would feel overdressed, and I didn't at all. There was live music, and it was bustling on a Tuesday night. We're from Chicago, and finding fine dining in Florida had been a challenge. Top notch food, service, and ambiance! Loved it!
I had been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time and finally did and I was so disappointed. I ordered the king crab legs which are $67. They are supposed to be garnished with asparagus but that did not come with them. My "hot" butter was brought out 15 minutes ahead but the warmer flame was never lit so the butter was solidified by the time the crab legs came. The crab legs had almost no flavor. It seemed as if they were boiled in plain water. I order crab legs often at restaurants and these were absolutely disappointing. I didn't even eat them. The server also seemed to be too busy to be able to give us good service. I sat with no water until we left. He also gave us the wrong bill, which didn't match the credit card receipt, so I wasn't able to tell if our bill was correct. We waited for about 10 minutes for him to come back so I could get the correct bill but we got tired of waiting and just left. For the $230 we spent on dinner for two (only one drink total and no dessert; no appetizers, one salad), this was a major disappointment.
Our server seemed to have too many tables to adequately pay attention to each. After finishing the final course, we sat with dirty plates in front of us for at least 10 minutes. Any time we ordered cocktails, it took exceptionally long for them to be delivered. The server did not discuss any specials Ocean Prime was offering the night we were there and instead just asked us if we were ready to order, so we did. I brought my parents there for their first time for a birthday and they (as well as I) were incredibly disappointed with the service.
This was the first time we sat outside and all thru our dinner we smelled cigarette. We weren’t told that smoking was allowed. We are not smokers. Other than that we had a good night. We will not do dinner outdoors again there and it’s a shame because it was a good night weather wise.
The food was very good but the noise was quite distracting. We were seated outside hoping for a quiet evening and found ourselves right under a music speaker. The dinner didn't disappoint but there was no need for the music outside. We will go again and would recommend but would not suggest for a "quiet" celebration.
Loud; much to loud!!! Could not understand servers words.
Food presentation & quality above average!
Paige our server was attentive, efficient & effective.
Appreciated the response to my special requests.
Probably will not return!!!
What a disappointment. Valentine's Day reservation, and we were seated out on the lawn at a card table! Never told this would be where we would be sitting. Service was slow, "Pepper" was overwhelmed with 5 tables at once, food was marginal (not Ocean Prime expectation) and there were several open tables where we "thought" we were to be seated near the bar in the outdoor covered area. We enjoy eating out regularly, are retired professionals, and were so disappointed with Ocean Prime in Tampa. The valet parking was the highlight of our experience. Went on the Ocean Prime website to make a comment, but could not find anyplace to directly contact OP. They must not care about what patrons think. I cannot recommend this restaurant, and I think my wife and I will go elsewhere next year.
The server was not able or unwilling to provide the appropriate experience to warrant the $170.00 price for dinner. However, the service to other patrons seemed very appropriate. Generally this establishment is far superior with first class service. Either a bad on Valentine's Day or they are beginning to have concerning service.
we stayed at Marriot Westshore and didn't want to drive. So we walk down to the International Plaza. Ocean Prime was the first restaurant we saw. It has good reviews and availability.
They have fresh seafood and good steak. Very impressed with the service and quality of food.
will definitely go there again.
This was our first visit and while OP had a pleasant atmosphere, we were extremely dissapointed with the taste of the food. The starch in the bisque was very overpowering and with very little flavor, it left a lot to be desired. The salmon had a very tart/sour taste and was quite unappetizing. Especially with so many restaurants willing to do a better job vying for our business, we will definitely not be returning.
