Charlie and service team rocked our experience. My date had not been and was thoroughly happy with everything - setting, service, beverages and food. Chef came out to chat with us and several room aides made sure we were happy for our entire stay. We will be back.
This was our first time visiting Ocean Prime and we had a wonderful evening. The food was very good and the service by Mercedes, our server, was perfection.
Went for my birthday, food was not worth it
This by far was the best restaurant experience I have had in a while. The place and the food was amazing, but the service was exquisite!! Our server "Brandee" made our visit worth the trip. She was knowledgeable; very pleasant; and gave her service with a smile so WHEN I return I will be sure to ask for her again.
One of my favorite restaurants, it was an amazing night and we loved our waitress
Great service. Excellent entree’s. Incredible views. Definitely on expensive side.
Everything was amazing! The food the service was perfect. Our waitress Mecerdes was the best!
Shannon was our waiter and did an incredible job. The food and service were great.
Being from out of town we were treated well and service was excellent although after paying they came back stating our credit card was not paying right. Anyway, the manager and our waitress handled it very well and we’re very apologetic as it was their mistake. However, we left with questions such as did our waitress get the cash tip we left on the table and a lot other questions of why the billing happened as it happened. But overall, we highly recommend this restaurant.
Delicious seafood salad & scallops appetizer in an elegant restautsnt is well suited to a special occasion.
The seating assignment for the party of 4 people was in the middle of the dining area where several spots along the windows were open. The hostess should have seated us near the windows. Our server was excellent and responsive. The food was poor - the blackened snapper and chilean sea bass was way over cooked - tough to eat. Very disappointing for a restaurant of this caliber.
Food, service and atmosphere were amazing. The views are beautiful. Our server, Darren, was amazing. Highly recommend!!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank the entire Ocean Prime staff for an absolutely wonderful evening. Special thanks to Shannon for his courtesy, professionalism and genuine care for us.
We came in for our anniversary and my wife was more than impressed. I’ve been to the Detroit location for work and was looking forward to bringing her here. The service was excellent, the best quality of fresh seafood, great ambiance… this was the perfect place to spend an anniversary!
Very enjoyable. Great food and service waiter and other staff were very attentive.
Love the cocktails here, particularly the Black Orchid made with Saint Germain elderflower. The Teriyaki Salmon is outstanding!
The food was excellent and the service was amazing! We will definitely be back
Charley was a great waiter! This meal destroyed Del Friscos. Congrats Ocean Prime team!
It was a nice environment
The staff was great
The food was excellent
Our waitress was very nice and had great customer service skill
Ended our family vacation with a dinner at Ocean Prime and it was excellent! Food, service, and environment were all nice. Food was prepared per request and was delivered in a timely manner. The service was frequently present, but not overbearing. Seafood was excellent and steaks were properly cooked.
Beautiful setting and nice atmosphere. Service was terrific and the food was exceptional. Our server was awesome and very attentive. We will be going back.
Emma was our waitress and she had such an upbeat and lovely spirit. Food was great and ambiance was intimate. Great date night.
Celebrated my 1 year anniversary!
I enjoyed every bit of my experience. The service was top notch yet, somehow, the cuisine was even better! Will be back for sure!
Absolutely wonderful. Great food, Great drinks. Just a all around great experience.
Outstanding business dinner, we were seated on time on a busy Saturday night. Everyone had a different fish and all were outstanding.
Great service, beautiful room and a nice selection of wine added to our enjoyment.
Love to bring out of town visitors here! Always a great night!
Great selection and everything we had was top notch. They split our orders so we each had a lobster tail and steak + appetizers. Everything we had was outstanding as was the service.
Great dinner and service! Looking forward to returning soon.
Had an awesome dinner at Ocean Prime. Came with my girlfriends for my birthday weekend and the food was delicious and the service was definitely top notch. Will definitely be coming back!
Great service from Carmin, awesome drinks and seafood. Will visit again
Very nice ambiance. Food was pretty good - but not any better than many lower end chain restaurants available at a fraction of the cost. Hard to feel great about a meal when you spent $300 and could have gotten the same (or better) at Longhorn for $70
We were pleased that we were still seated after arriving 45 minutes late for our reservation on a Saturday evening. We did get a table, but in the bar area. I was a bit disappointed as there seemed to be plenty of tables available in the main dining rooms throughout our entire time there though? At the main level entrance there was a hostess stand that was not attended, only a sign directing us to the 2nd floor and a caution sign regarding the establishments "Dress Code" We went up to the 2nd floor where there were three host staff? When we were seated I looked around and couldn't determine what the dress code was? It seemed perhaps one may be required to wear jerseys, ball caps or graphic t-shirts? If there is a strict dress code here I am not sure who is enforcing it? Great people watching from the window seats. Nice atmosphere (better if you can be seated in the dining rooms) Our server was great! Only exception was that everything we ordered was "Her favorite thing on the menu" and she was very excited for us! I couldn't help but overhear her telling the exact same thing to the other tables! LOL! The surf & turf appetizer of scallops and short rib was really good but small portion on the short rib, like two bites. We ordered the bone in filet and the Berkshire Pork Chop. Neither were prepared as ordered. Pork chop was supposed to be medium rare and was actually closer to raw in the center. Not great even for Berkshire pork. The Filet was ordered the same and was served rare. We never send them back as inevitably you get the same piece of meat back now way overcooked and not properly done. It's pretty simple, if you can't cook a piece of meat by time or touch use a thermometer to temp! For a place called "Ocean Prime" in Chicago, they have no "Prime" meat on the menu? The ten layer carrot cake seemed to have been sliced up much earlier in the day as the sides were hard. Two drinks and dessert. Tabbed out just over $300. Better places for the $$$ and very nearby!
Filet of Beef fork tender and cooked perfectly med rare. $52 is a bit pricy, BUT it was a great vacation meal. Desserts are delicious and large. Sides are large and shareable. Back to hamburger now!
Our Waiter Charlie was very attentive and great personality. Exceptional service by all wait staff. Best service.
Great food, great service, prices are reasonable!
Delicious food and service was amazing!
The food and our entire experience was outstanding. Darren and his team delivered the BEST service that we've had at any of the top restaurants in the city- highly recommend!
