Great wine selection, very impressive. Service was excellent. Really enjoyed the team service, very attentive. Bread was delicious. Menu offered great variety and options for seafood and steak. We sat outside on a beautiful evening and really enjoyed it. Shrimp cocktail appetizer could have been better for the price. Very basic and the shrimp were small for that price range. We had the butter cake for dessert and it was delicious! Overall we had a wonderful time and will be back.

Ocean prime lives up to its reputation as Tampa’s finest dining establishment. Service was unparalleled, food was impeccable

But Jonathan Aguilera is a true professional and he made the experience simply heavenly for us.

Everything we had was awesome. Our only complaint was we decided we would split a bunch of appetizers with a soup and salad. We were not told the appetizer portions were huge, and that 5 appetizers for 2 people, especially after soup and salad, was overkill. All the appetizers were delicious. We found out after the fact we could have gotten half portions, which would have been nice to know ahead of time. We will go back again, as the food was amazing, just will know to order less next time!

An absolutely spectacular evening and I can not say enough about the remarkable meal and service we received here. The calamari is the best I have ever tasted and we enjoyed every bite. We will certainly return!

It is very hard to beat the excellence of Ocean Prime. The ambiance is great. The food is always amazing. The drinks are creative. Service is only rivaled by the servers at Bern's Steakhouse(my other favorite restaurant in Tampa). Wish I could give Ocean Prime more than 5 stars. It is just that great!

Portions were pretty small fo the price but overall tasted wonderful. The waiter was fantastic and recommended different items in the menu that we should try. The restaurant seemed a little limited on space and a lot more casual then I was picturing. I would give it a solid 4/5 or 4.5 because the food quality & taste was amazing not taking into account that the portion size was on the smaller side.

The Westshore room is the best for an occasion. It’s the only quiet place in the restaurant. Birthday dinner was very nice with Happy Birthday dessert and confetti on the table.

First visit in a while, probably #5 or #6 lifetime. Ocean Prime is as remembered - busy, with resultant impacts on service and noise, but both are by design - attracts a "crowd" who likes it that way (I think of it as New York style.) Biggest issue is with the table set-up/spacing which is very tight - Again by design, restaurant wasn't that busy when we were there, but they like everyone to sit close together in a 2/3 full restaurant instead of giving everyone more space. Food is excellent, and you pay for it, particularly given smallish portions on fish on pretty much every protein. I will go back the next time I am in Tampa and want that kind of place for dinner. Great location, gets a little bright inside if the sunset (which is unseen behind you to the west) is reflecting off high clouds to the east. Remarkably pretty view given the (very convenient) location at the entrance to The mall in Tampa off a busy boulevard close to the airport.
