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!
It was a birthday dinner, and the service was wonderful, and they really helped to make it a special occasion.
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.
It was amazing for my birthday. Waitress was amazing.
Overall, it was a good experience, but a bit pricey for the quality of service and quality of food. Dinner for two, with a bottle of wine was over $200.
We were celebrating our anniversary. When we arrived at our table it has rose petals and two glasses of champaign waiting for us. The wait staff was excellent. It was a perfect evening for my wife and I.
I had the ribeye steak, probably the best steak I ever had very flavorful not dry.
As always this restaurant is 5 star. Food, service (Thank you Justin!!!) and ambiance is outstanding.
I loved everything about the restaurant. The service , food and atmosphere was wonderful.
We always enjoy Ocean-Prime, it's one of our favorite dinner spots. Our visit Saturday night was no exception! Our favorites: handcrafted cocktails, wine, calamari, and the filet mignon with jalapeno potatoes . The red snapper will not disappoint either.
I just wanted to say a special thank you to Ocean Prime. I had not finished my meal, and there was a little oops a daisy with my takeaway, It never arrived back at our table! We were just going to leave it at that, It was a busy night. We paid our bill and were preparing to leave after a wonderful evening and a delicious meal. We were so surprised when our server and the manager went completely out of their way to prepare another filet and potatoes for me to take home. This was truly an act of kindness, Thank you.
Barbara service was phenomenal. Food was great as well.
service was excellent at the table. The front desk can use training on enthusiasm and proper greeting. you expect that from a good restaurant like ocean prime and it does not cost any money.
Justin and his team was great
Ocean Prime is always enjoyable, Staff is friendly and helpful. There signature drinks are awesome. Food was good, but could have been warmer. Fillet was great.
Consistently one of the best steaks in Tampa/St Pete area. Servers are always very polished and engaging.
Great food. Great service and table. Pricey but worth it. Impressive wine list.
Sat outdoors on the patio. Beautiful evening great meal and service
Food was delicious and presentation was spectacular!!
Sat outside 1 weather was beautiful
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 dining and atmosphere is always great. The service was outstanding. It was a very nice meal and evening.
Food very good! Service very good as well.
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!!!
Wonderful meal with a great friend talking business!
Made a reservation over a month in advance, after waiting to be seated for a half hour past our reserved time, we left unfortunatley.
Wine list was great, food came out perfect. I loved the attentive service our server provided even though it was a busy night.
Real treat for Valentines Day. Great food, great service and honored reservation right on time. Perfect night.
Glad they got us in for Valentine’s Day and the experience and service was great!
It was wonderful. Thank you Ocean Prime!
