First of all, this restaurant takes reservations. I'm so tired of the hipster restaurants downtown where they don't take reservations and you're left standing around for hours waiting for a table. And though the restaurant was full, we were able to get a table with a reservation in the same hour. The service was excellent. Our waiter was really knowledgeable and friendly. When there was a small issue, he quickly made it right. We loved everything we tried. We had the goat cheese ravioli for an appetizer. It was great. Just the right size and it melted in your mouth. I had the grouper, which I had never had before. It was served with gnocchi and lobster in a nice creamy sauce, but it was not too heavy. I keep dreaming about eating it again. My husband had the sea bass, which he liked also. We also ordered the decadent lobster mashed potatoes. Yum. I had the left overs for lunch the next day. And for dessert, we had the chocolate mousse cake. It was also delicious. No weird, unpronounceable surprise ingredients here; just fresh fish and very well-prepared food. We really enjoyed our meal at Ocean Prime. And on top of all that, the restaurant called me the next day to make sure everything was OK. Can't wait to eat here again.
Overall excellent restaurant.
We did have issues with the restaurant, first off had to send one of drinks back. We ask for a Screw Driver, simple drink, and it was sour. Like they didn't shake the Orange Juice. Not what we expected. Order King Crab Legs and get three legs and rest knuckles. What did I get the bottom of the batch? $65 dollars, ouch. Salmon was excellent.
Order dessert, chocolate cake. Took a bite and was overwhelmed by very bitter dark chocolate taste. So we took the top layer of chocolate off and corrected the issue. Simple delicious without that top layer.
Service was was good and staff was very professional.
Would we go back, maybe.
A very lackluster evening. We had a $150 gift card that my husband and I used to celebrate a special occasion. With tip, we added $55. Briefly, the calamari was average. Fried and too sweet. The steak was tough and mealy, the fish was what I am describing as “cafeteria style,” (although the succotash was delicious) and the lobster mashed potatoes were the biggest disappointment. The lobster was overcooked and hard, there was a thick layer of red and greasy oil or I’m not sure what atop. It was unappetizing. Our drinks were very good, the service was certainly good enough. Would we come back? No. A really disappointing meal. We didn’t complain because it seemed like nothing was going to get better — when everything is bad, you kind of go with it, eat, and get out.
John is the man for separate room and party over 10. Great job / service. We enjoyed the 'west wing' last Friday and were treated like we were part of the White House.
The food was delicious, and the service was fantastic. I appreciated that we weren’t rushed to complete our meal. It was an excellent experience overall.
This was a great end to a business meeting with a potential client. They were thoroughly impressed and raved about the atmosphere and food. Thank you so much for helping me to close the deal!
The lamp chop lollipops were amazing! And the bread is always warm and good.
Let me start off by saying this... I haven’t been to this restaurant since I proposed to my wife 8 years ago. When I walked in the door and the host pulled up my name for the reservation she says we have you at the same table from your proposal. I didn’t ask for it nor did I tell them about it. That is what you call A1 service! Not to mention the staff is always professional and very courteous and the food is just as superb. I recommend anyone who is looking for a special night out or even a casual evening go to Ocean Prime... you won’t be disappointed.
Thank you for another wonderful experience Ocean Prime!
Delicious food, very nice ambiance and impeccable service!
Great Night for my daughters sweet 16th birthday! Excellent food and atmosphere.
I selected this restaurant because of its relationship to Mitchell's in Cincinnati and Columbus. It just pales for ambiance and style. It seemed to run of the mill for the prices.
I had the lobster bisque which was far less than expected. I get much better bisque in many restaurants for half the price.
My halibut was excellent, but for more than $50 I expect it should be the best halibut of my life.
Good atmosphere, very good food (except the bisque), poor value.
Attentive service (almost too attentive) but very accommodating.
The drink were great! Service was good, I’ve had better.
Would highly recommend Ocean Prime for all your dining needs. Always good food and good service for any occasion. The staff is pleasant and welcoming and the dining atmosphere has always been as expected. It appears that Ocean Prime appreciates the patronage of their guests and I have found that your reviews of your dining experience is taken seriously with prompt responses to your concerns.
Loved the food and our server was phenominal. This was my first time visiting and I was very much impressed
Great tasting food. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.
Lobster tail no flavor they said it was cold water but wasn’t sweet like cold water.
Swordfish dry small portion and tasteless
House salad good but too much dressing so lettuce soggy.
Great food, great service. Wine list is excellent and fairly priced. Highly recommend.
50th anniversary dinner for my parents. Mitchell was a fantastic waiter and helped make the meal a wonderful experience.
Excellent service and food. Ordered Oysters Rockefeller off the menu...superb! Swordfish was the best prepared that I have ever tasted...keep up the good work in the kitchen!!! Warm, friendly and comfortable atmosphere. Continues to be one of my favorite Detroit area restaurants.
Wait staff is very attentive and forward thinkers! They anticipated our needs and took care of them. I couldn't decide which dessert to get and left it to our waitperson to decide, she brought me both (one was on her!)...................
Excellent wait staff.
Came to Icean Prime to celebrate special occasion. Staff were attentive and more than one staff person acknowledge the occasion. The food was outstanding and cooked to perfection. I have been here before and never disappointed
Nikki and team provided phenomenal service. The Teriyaki Salmon was excellent.
Celebrated a good friend’s birthday tonight. We had a great time and the food was delicious as always.
One of the best dinners I have ever had. Our server, Tiffany, was wonderful too! Awesome experience all around. Highly recommended!
There seating arrangement for larger groups is very limited. My Party of 8 was tucked away in a tight back corner of a private banquet room that was made for about 30 people but was set for 45. Ihave dined here before and felt very disappointed in the arrangements. The food is always prepared well. The service was fairly good. The company i kept made up for the disappointments i received overall. This was not my first experience but it was my least favorite.
Come all the time and never get disappointed, great place and excellent service!
Outstanding restaurant with exceptional staff and wonderful food.
The ambience was and live entertainment were awesome. The food was very good. The staff was very very very accommodating to our party. I would definately recommend this restaurant to my friends and family.
Server was great! So was the food and drinks!
One of the best meals I have ever had. Great live music and awesome ambiance. Such amazing food and service.
I love this restaurant. The food is excellent and the service is great. Whether you are a meat eater or a seafood lover, the menu works for both.
The service was outstanding! Our host, Micheal was the BEST. Professional, polite, and fun. We even got to taste a hand crafted cocktail he made. We felt special and valued. Bravo.
I was there celebrating my birthday with a friend. The lobster shrimp salad is awesome and the Sea Bass was impeccable. Great dining experience
Thankful for the experience and the time well spent I will be a regular guest there please be on the look out for me
everything was amazing , this was my first time and will definitely not be my last !
Besides them charging me for 3 desserts when I only had 2 and charging us for a Diet Pepsi that we ordered and didn't receive, I guess they were ok
