    Overall dinner was excellent. The only spoiler was the chilled lobster that I got. It was very slimy and mushy. This should have been picked up by the kitchen staff before coming out because it was noticeable as soon as they put the plate down. It was very obvious that no one did any QC before sending it out. Our waiter was extremely apologetic but it was too late. Excellent wait staff. I was disappointed no one from management appeared to be concerned.

    Our dining experience at Ocean Prime was a pleasant one overall. The only comment I would make would be towards the food. I ordered the Chilean Sea Bass and feel my fish was under seasoned. We also ordered a side of the brussel sprouts and felt they were too soggy. Overall though, I felt the experience was good.

    Food was absolutely amazing!!! Our service was wonderful as well! We were celebrating my birthday, and kept talking about how me and my fiancé are getting married next week. The server brought all 5 of us champagne, ice cream, and cake slice on the house for celebration! How wonderful. The espresso martinis are delicious. I ordered the scallops and risotto, they were cooked perfectly.

    Food was overly salted, lobster tails on the smallish side and had been dusted with pepper for some reason. Had to ask for drawn butter at table side. Steak was tough. Drinks were good and crème brûlée was very good. Pricey for the quality.

    I love the ambience and the staff was really nice. The food was just really salty. Everybody at my table complained about their dish being on the salty side. I didn't get a refill of water at all. Although we arrived before the crowd, it took a long, long time for our food to deliver.

    I celebrated my birthday at Ocean Prime! The food was very good, the restaurant is so pretty and everyone is very nice and attentive. However, Darren, our waiter was the show stopper during our entire eating experience! Funny, smart and knowledgeable of everything on the menu, not afraid to give his honest opinion or suggestion. If you visit the restaurant ask to be seated in Darren’s area, you will not be disappointed.

    Despite a reservation, it took more than 15 minutes to be seated so off to a slow start. Cocktail was also slow but the service was otherwise very good. Shrimp cocktail was better than expected - delivered with flourish. We tried the tuna and the grouper. Both were good. Finished with the butter cake. Yummy. Overall a nice fish place in the London.

    We sat at the bar for awhile before our reservation started. The drinks were good and strong. The truffle popcorn was a yummy little snack before dinner. Service was great all around, shout out to James! The lamb chop appetizer was great. I’m not a big calamari fan but my date loved it. I actually enjoyed it as well. We both got the sea bass, it was so good, buttery soft. I enjoyed everything about the evening.

    We compare other Ocean Prime locations with New York City. The Chicago location stood up to New York amazing reviews. Charles was outstanding making our experience not only top notch but also fun! Only suggestion is to offset the valet cost which as of 1 July is now $25.

    I absolutely loved my experience at Ocean Prime. I was celebrating a birthday with a friend and we both enjoyed the delicious food and drinks! The sea bass, scallops, and oysters were splendid and I highly recommend all of them. We dined in early, so we ordered from the early bird menu as well as the dinner menu (best of both worlds) and by the end of the meal, we were stuffed! The service was outstanding. Our server was incredibly attentive and should I return, I would request him again.
