Ocean Prime - Chicago
I’ve dined at ocean prime from their Beverly Hills location to their Dallas location and I can honestly say my experience at the location in Chicago was by far the most memorable. We were greeted with a wonderful welcome form the host staff and had the best dining experience because of Brandee who I would call the hospitality expert. Not pushy at all and just made us feel welcomed as if we were friends for years. The food is always spectacular but Brandee made our night and would come back just to see her. We also had a wonderful manager touch base which goes a long way when even just a check up makes me feel just how much they care. Thank you so much ocean prime team, you’ll be seeing a lot of us as we are Chicago locals.
The blackened snapper was excellent and so flavorful with the corn bread base. The 10 layer carrot cake was very good and so moist.
Overall great food and service. The steak melts in your mouth and everything else was also good. We had the west coast oysters and they were perfect. Great way to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Thanks
No "Sorry Charlie" here.
Came for anniversary dinner on Saturday night. Was greeted with a champagne toast. Nice touch. My wife ordered the Bubbles cocktail it didnt disappoint. Had the tuna tartare is was fresh and excellent. We ordered the Grouper and Red Snapper dinners thinking to try both. We loved both. Prepared well and not overcooked.
They offered a complimentary dessert but we were full, so we pasted. They comped our appetizer instead.
Charlie our waiter made the night as he fun and still professional.
Thanks for great service and a great dining experience Charlie.
Everything was delicious.. sushi roll was one of the best, then steaks cooked to perfection and a delicious crab cake to top it off. We even got a PB Pie to go for our anniversary. Top notch start to finish!
Food excellent, staff great!
My niece and I did a date night. Matthew was AMAZING!
Had a steak salad ….the quality of the steak was poor. I cut-off gristle and fat from the slices of steak. Would go back for lunch but I would definitely not order this salad.
Went to the Scottsdale location a few weeks back and it was much better. First, the waiter was far too familiar, wanting to shake each of our hands, repeatedly calling us by our first names and repeatedly interrupting our table discussions. Also, the wine list is an embarrassment for a restaurant lune this. Almost all of the cabernets were ridiculously young (2016). We settled for the Chappalet, but again, it was too young. I shouldn’t go to a fine restaurant and wished I had brought my own wine. Would not go back til they inprove on the wine list
I visited Ocean Prime to celebrate my birthday with family. Initially, everyone we encountered was very pleasant and I was happy that we were given a private booth as requested. Unfortunately, after we were brought water by an assistant, our server never came to our table. We waited 30 min. and had to flag down a server. Thankfully, David came to our rescue. He apologized for what happened and took excellent care of us. He returned after our appetizers had been served and told us that the restaurant would comp them due to the mistake. That is how you treat customers who are spending their hard-earned income at your establishment. Every item was delicious and the service from David was unmatched. I will definitely return and ask for him in the future. Thank you for not ruining my birthday celebration.
Fantastic atmospheric with wonderful views! The service was professional and at an elevated level you would expect from a better restaurant. Nice wine collection, good cocktails. Surf & Turf w additional course was only $60pp! How could you go wrong? All steaks were cooked to perfection! Def going back!
Total perfection ! Came in for a double birthday celebration and everything was perfect. The appetizers were tasty, our steaks were done beautifully to our liking, the sides were plentiful and that 7 layer carrot cake... scrumptious! This is a must! Everything was on point and the restaurant is beautiful. Can’t wait to go back.
Andrew was awesome.
Service was exceptional and we enjoyed the ambiance along with the food. Had the opportunity to take our time, and not be rushed.
Menu was explained well and I enjoyed all the recommendations.
Blackened snapper was awesome along with everything else. Thank you for the birthday cake, butter cake with ice cream and fruit, delicious.
Great food. Brandee was amazing! Will be back.
There was nothing to complain about. We love this place!
My favorite spot. Service and food were top notch
Fabulous food, great service, relaxing atmoshpere, comfortable and exquisite surroundings. Enjoyed both our time and the delicious food at Ocean Prime!
The music was great. The food was above average. The service was ok. Sorry I can’t recommend. Biggest problem was the Restaurant was cold. We asked twice for them to put the heat on and it took a long time for the room to get warm which put a big damper on the evening. They also made an error on our food allergies and didn’t accommodate our table request. The dessert was good but for the price tag and all the anticipation it fell short of the mark.
The server would not leave us alone to talk and enjoy our meal. She rushed us the entire evening. Then asked for our parking ticket to have our car pulled around. What if we were going to the bar after dinner? We sent back the truffle Mac, and the seafood salad was dry and tastless. Good appetizers though, and carrot cake.
Best Happy Hour in Chicago hands down! Carmin our server was so fabulous and helpful. Can’t wait to go back!
The staff were amazing. Incredibly helpful, going above and beyond. The food was amazing. Oysters and Alaskan King Crab Legs ... BRILLIANT! We will definitely return.
Excellent dining experience. We started with the shrimp cocktail and crab meat cocktail, both of which were superb. I had the grouper, which was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed the food, ambiance, and professional service.
Ambience was amazing! Food was honestly pretty mediocre.
Put it near the top of my Chicago steakhouse list! The surf and turf was amazing.
Beautiful ambience, wait staff is pretty good but the food is mediocre & honestly I’ve had better food at fast food restaurants.
Great experience! Service was great and the food was superb.
A little disappointed with the steak, flavor and preparation was off. Large piece of gristle in the center of filet. Also was rare when we ordered medium. There are many other great steak restaurants in Chicago.
Excellent service in a comfortable professional environment...well done
Good food, great service by Eric. He guided us in food selections a d was very knowledgeable. A bit pricey so not on the regular cycle.
The only negative about this great restaurant is the view of trump hotel across the river.
Great food and great service as usual!
Amazing experience at this new gem along the river. Atmosphere is upscale, but not stuffy. Food was tremendous. Waitstaff and management couldn't do enough to make sure we had a great experience. I will definitely be back.
We had a business dinner for 12. Ocean Prime exceeded my expectations- outstanding on all fronts. The bone in Ribeye and Honig Cabernet were exceptional.
We sat in bar, great space! Drink we’re fine and food was fine.
Carmin was really nice and had great things to say about the company. She was very attentive to our needs.
Waiter Dave was great ! Food was excellent . Thank you for an impressive birthday dinner
Delicious food and friendly service from all. Carrot cake was amazing
Don’t ask the bartender to suggest a wine without looking at the price, they will pick an experience one right from the get go. Not cool!!! Should be more average suggestions or ask price range before.
