We changed our dinner reservations from another restaurant so we could try Ocean Prime and we were not disappointed. The service was friendly and professional and the food was impeccably prepared and delicious.

We were dining with my son and his fiance, celebrating my husband's birthday and my son's new job. Angelica our server greeted us with a tray of champagne flutes so we could toast the occasion! What a nice surprise. Angelica provided exceptional, personable and attentive service throughout our meal. We had the ravioli and calamari appetizers and thoroughly enjoyed both. We had to try the "bubbles and berries" cocktail I had read so much about - it was great fun as well as tasty! For entrees, we enjoyed perfectly cooked steaks as well as the snapper and grouper entrees. All entrees were beautifully presented, cooked to perfection and delicious. We ordered the butter cake for dessert, and it came complete with birthday candles as well as 2 edible chocolate sentiments - a happy birthday and a congratulations! This was the exact kind of meal we had envisioned for celebrating, and we thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of our experience. We will be sure to return, and to request Angelica as our server again!

Food, atmosphere, drinks were great! The ONLY issue was after giving our waitress payment for bill & informed her we didn’t need any change (we’d given cash for bill & tip) she returned to table w/bill & cash and asked if we were done and if we’d like bill back to review as of we’d miscounted funds for check. She basically wasn’t happy with her tip & told us the percent of tip we’d left her. Then stood there & questioned her service & said she didn’t want to be awkward…to late! Absolutely ruined bday celebration for my cousin.

Excellent selection of food and drinks. Everything was delicious and best seafood we’ve ever had. Service was great. Charlie went above and beyond to make our experience a great one. It gets hot if you’re seated in the section by the fireplace. Great views. Very large space.

Our Waitress was AMAZING!! She was joyous about our occasion (mom’s 85th birthday) and knowledgeable about the entire menu. DO NOT, (and I cannot stress this enough) MISS THE WARM BUTTER CAKE. Easily the best dessert of our lives.

My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary at Oceanside and the quality of food was fantastic and the service exceeded our expectations. Shannon explained the menu to us in detail and he let us know that every dish was customizable and could create our own pairings. I would recommend OceanPrime to anyone looking for fresh seafood or USDA prime steaks however the real gem so the service!

Excellent. Warm welcome to start, no waiting. Entire staff was prompt but never overbearing. Waiter (Zack?) and his crew were great.

Service was attentive but not intrusive. Everything we ordered was delicious. I had one of the sushi rolls and it was one of the best I have ever enjoyed. Our salads were large, nicely dressed, crisp and delicious. My husband enjoyed one of his lamp chops and hoped to bring the other one home. That was the only downside--the sides were nicely wrapped and bagged for him but when we returned home, the lamp chop was missing and apparently being enjoyed by someone else. Given the pricing which is hefty, that was a real disappointment.
However, we plan to return and enjoy again very soon.

Traveled from Atlanta and this was my first visit. My bill was $200 and the food sucked. The staff was amazing but for $200 I should have been able to eat the entire meal. My honey forced himself to eat all of his food but I couldn’t eat it. Lol He took a box but it ultimately went in the trash! Should have went to Longhorn!

Excellent experience!! From the food to the service. Daren, our server along with Mario and Paco were incredible. He really made our anniversary extra special. I had the filet and my wife had the grouper!! We both cleared our plates. For dessert my wife chose the peanut butter treat!! Omg…. Best peanut butter dessert ever. Love OP, we’ll definitely be back.

We got the ahi tuna tartare, west coast oysters, Chilian sea bass, ribeye and the whipped mash and everything was delicious! Our server was amazing and gave some good recommendations on the chardonnay. Creme brulee was great too! I can't wait to enjoy another dinner here in the near future. Thank you to our server for an amazing first time experience (I wish I remembered her name)

Last minute decision to dine out for my husband’s birthday. The food was amazing. Had the deviled eggs and French onion soup for starters and the sea bass and lobster for entrees. They prepared a special birthday dessert and treated us to champagne. Service could have been better, but our server was very personable, and many restaurants are struggling with having enough wait and kitchen staff. Will definitely go back!
