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.

My husband took me to Ocean Prime for the first time to celebrate my birthday. It was absolutely amazing. The food was delicious and unique and our waiter was absolutely wonderful and gave us a great introduction to the restaurant and recommendations for dinner. We were not disappointed at all. The quality of the food was fantastic. We look forward to dining here again. Well worth the price.
Valet did a great job. Our hostess Sierra was awesome and made sure we had a great seat. Our server Jason was super knowledgeable and make our time at the table very pleasant. The food was very fresh and tasted great. My customer from the East Coast commented that he had never had blackened snapper that tasted this good. Thank you to the staff for a great experience.
Everything was excellent with the exception of the server. He forgot to bring out a food item. Then he gave a lame excuse as to why it was not brought to the table. Then said he would bring it out and never came back with the food. I was very disappointed with the server. Other than that I was pleased with the venue and the quality of the food.
First time to the restaurant and on a Wednesday is was busy. Started off slow: getting a waiter to the table took 10 minutes drinks another 10minutes but once in gear the service was perfect. One entry was under cooked and corrected. So while not a perfect experience is is still a solid restaurant just have to accept the busy lively atmosphere for what it is.
They had lots of help maybe 20 wait staff? but again the restaurant was packed and it was 7:30 prime time.
We'll go back and my bet is we will get 5 star service on the next trip. I feel that way because in years of dining out 4-6 times a week this is the first restaurant to call me the next day and ask how my dining experience was! That tells me that this was an off night that was still as good or better than most other restaurants. We will try them again soon.
We had lobster bisque and grouper with potatoes. Both were good but not great. The bisque was a bit bland and the tiny bit of grouper seasoning was overshadowed by the strong lemon sauce. We also ordered dessert....the warm butter cake and cheesecake was the bomb!! Our server recommend the blackberry tea and he was spot on!
Seated immediately at our reservation time. Table was sprinkled with very cute decorations of Birthday symbols . I was asked at booking if we were celebrating anything and it was my kids' 23 and 20th. Server was knowledgeable, good suggestions when asked, attentive, friendly, and efficient. Glasses were refilled promptly, plates cleared and checked back enough so that we felt we were paid attention to but not intrusive. A great special occasion restaurant! Only negative was the entree price. Steaks have no included sides and good use a little additional seasoning. Loved everything else.
Not our best experience unfortunately. Normally love this restaurant, but this last visit was below par. My wife and I took her parents who had never been. The bar area normally has a pleasant pianist playing. However this night they had a guitar player who had the volume turned up so loud it felt like we were at a bar in Key West. Literally could not hear anything but the music so we moved to the main dining room. The food itself was excellent as was 5e sevice, but 2 of the 3steaks orderd were cooked wrong so we ate separately, which was disappointing.
Everything was excellent, from our bubbly berries cocktail to the dinner. Our waiter Cole was awesome and portions were huge, we had to have some food boxed!
The only reason why I didn't give an overall rating 5 stars is because we waited about 40 minutes to get our table. I understand that it was a busy Saturday night, but from this restaurant I expect the best service, and guests should not wait 40 mins for a table (although we enjoyed our cocktails and were able to easily find two seats at the bar).
All in all it was great and my friend who was visiting from Europe was estatic!
Food was awesome, as always. I gave the service a lower rate because we had reservations for 7:30 pm and ended up waiting almost an hour later to be seated. That has never happen at Ocean Prime before, but they looked busy. Although no one came to give us an update the waiter at the bar did go check for us and management probably knew the next day about the delay because I received a call to check on our experience. They were very nice to say they were leaving a note on our record to make it up to us in the next visit.
Needs updating : coolers of wine in display : really??? And shutters : with all the high tech stuff this was more than disappointing. My silly house looks better than what you guys have for ambience.
That's why I feel the value is not worth the price......That's not romance it's plain : tacky
Value: you're a bit high: $2-$5 a meal: sides: really: $$15/$17, maybe $9-$11.
Spend some money on upgrade not on 2 coolers of WINE
My favorite restaurant in the Tampa Sarasota area. Have visited in other cities and have had same level of excellent food and service but the facility was not necessarily as high class. Only negative is noise level but then again I’m not under 40 just Love great food and service.
