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
Ocean Prime is one of our favorites. I can honestly say that we have never been disappointed with the service, food and/or ambiance. We have dined there on many occasions - birthdays, anniversary, graduations, date night and Sunday dinner and always left with good memories
I don't normally take the time to submit a review of restaurants, but it had been a number of years since we dined at Ocean Prime, and the entire experience was quite good.
My wife and I decided last minute to have a special lunch for our anniversary. I made a reservation for two using OpenTable literally 45 minutes ahead of the reservation time and in the notes mentioned we were celebrating an anniversary, asking for a nice table with a view. Their terrace is being redesigned, so we sat inside. Honestly, if they didn't tell us, you would have no idea they are doing work outside...no impact.
Upon arrival and check-in the hostess wished us congratulations. 1 minute later, another staff member brought us complementary champagne. We were seated at a nice table with a few rose pedals around the centerpiece of the table for good measure.
The scene was definitely vibrant -- a lot of business lunches and decent sized groups for a Wednesday afternoon. Our server was working hard and it showed. He was managing a number of tables, but overall was very prompt and attentive.
The food was very good. Lobster bisque was a hit and was split in two portions for us. The blackened snapper was hot and done to perfection. Likewise, my wife enjoyed her dish. The lunch was topped off with a complementary desert, which we took to go.
The next day I received a call from the restaurant thanking me for dining with them as well as to ask how everything was. Really nice touch.
Service is not dead at Ocean Prime. They earned our repeat business, and we will definitely be back.
I have never had dinner here. I have seen pictures of the plated food and even seen the plated food. I've worked here for almost 5 years and this was the first time I've dined here. The pictures don't do the food justice. The taste and combinations of flavor far exceeded the presentation, and the presentation was great. I was truly surprised by each dish and would definately recommend Ocean Prime to anyone, especially if they are celebrating an anniversary. They go the extra mile. And I don't believe it is because I am employees there. It's just what they do.
Excellent food and service. Can customize your order. Very attentive wait and support staff Good spacing of courses. If u can afford the price this is one of the best restaurants/ chains there is. Food and service consistent at other locations I have eaten at in nyc and Boston
The food was outstanding. The waiter was good looked to be too busy at times. The tables are just to close together. I understand wanting to maximize the floor space but you could not move without hitting the person behind me. Made it hard to get out of my seat. It's a minor complaint and it won't keep me from coming back.
Food was perfection!! Our party was a group of three. We ordered three different dishes and shared them all to get a taste of all three. Everything was cooked to perfection. Blackened Red Snapper dish was the winner at our table but the Chilean Sea Bass was a very close 2nd. Our server was Jake and he was great. He was very polite, kind, and attentive to our table. Our overall experience with the delicious food, great service and ambiance was outstanding. We will be back.
When we arrived, the hostess greeted us by name. The server, Cristy Purcell, immediately made us feel welcome. We asked her a lot of questions which she answered with accuracy . The food was excellent. The oysters were so good, we had two orders! We each had the Ahi tuna appetizer. Yum!
The martinis were generous. We would go back anytime!
Service was not good. Waiter was not attentive and a bit arrogant. Steak was not served hot. It was served warm, almost as it was sitting a bit before being served. Would have expected better service and overall experience. Not our first time dining here. Many other great choices in the future .
Very good meal. Was celebrating a milestone birthday for one of the guests and the staff nicely decorated the table for us. While we appreciate not being rushed, the only complaint was that I had to go to the front to ask for the check. At times the server could be too attentive to other guests and not pay sufficient attention to all of his tables - perhaps other tables felt this while he was socializing with us?
From the champagne greeting at the door ,to our last bite of creme brulee ,our anniversary dinner was spectacular. The table with rose petals , the anniversary chocolate and attentive service by Marcos were great details. Our meals, snapper and NY strip , were delicious.
I really enjoy dining at Ocean Prime Tampa and this occasion was no exception. The steak is always delicious and great quality. The sides are amazing love the jalapeño au gratin. The waiter recommended a new wine I had never tasted and I fell in love with it. Very great ambiance and impressed the entire time.
we love ocean prime.....service and food are very good.........seems they have added so many table in the main dining room that it is hard to get up and down from your seat and definitely feel you are right on top of the people behind you and in front of you.........
the bar is more roomy but definitely too loud for any conversation....
We went to Ocean Prime to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday. We were greeted at the door and again at the Hostess stand with smiles. We had reservations and were seated upon arrival. Our server, Paige, was awesome! She was friendly and informative. We had a delicious dinner and really enjoyed our time at Ocean Prime. We will be back!
We decided to go here for my birthday dinner as we had never been here before. I was so pleasantly surprised by just how good it was. Our server, Austin, was outstanding and the food was absolutely delicious and we'll definitely be going back. I had the Seabass and it was cooked perfectly and was delicious. My wife and brother in law split the snapper and filet and were very happy with their meals. We had a couple of cocktails before and during dinner. My wife had the cucumber gimlet and I don't like gin at all but that drink was delicious. I had both the whiskey clover and the prime manhattan and both were very very good. I can't wait to go back and try something different.
