Ocean Prime - Chicago
Best meal, service and ambience we've had in Chicago
Excellent food and attention to detail, wonderful decor that was almost 1920’s Great Gatsby-esque, and beautiful views of the Chicago River and Wrigley building from their 2nd floor location in the London House building.
Our server, Darren, was amazing. All night he went above and beyond to make sure we enjoyed our evening. He was attentive to our needs and more than willing to explain anything on the menu to us.
For us this is a very special occasion but the service, waiter it’s a really bad service.
Anniversary . Great waitress
Birthday celebration was amazing!!!!!
Very warm and inviting place to eat. Food was great and service was excellent. Our server was very knowledgeable and very up beat. Would definitely go back and would recommend to everyone.
Service was attentive, food expensive and mediocre. For a city like Chicago, with so many really good steak (and seafood) restaurants, absolutely no reason to return nor to recommend to anyone!
Bone-in filet had ZERO taste and was NOT rare as ordered. Caesar ordered with “light dressing” was drenched, and truffle fries were cold and had barely any taste at all.
What a disappointing experience for a venue in neighborhood where we live!!!
I took a friend for a birthday dinner, and the service and food were outstanding!
Terrific food and staff was top notch! Definitely will be on my list the next time I’m in Chicago!
Beautiful place, great service, quality food. I would reserve for a special occasion.
Thank you for a wonderful experience
Carmine was absolutely perfect
The food exceeded my expectations, our server Joe was on point with his recommendations they were all really really good. The drinks were made to perfection. With all that being said I’ll most definitely be back.
Very pleasant/comfortable environment. Joe provided us with excellent service. The food/wine was reasonably priced and we were treated to a celebration dessert that was delightful.
Absolutely amazing! Loved the atmosphere, the staff and of course the food and drinks were nothing less than perfect! Will definitely dine here again!
Great food and service
Great ambiance. The food was delicious. Drinks were awesome. Definitely will come back. Great meal and wonderful waiter in Cory . Place is well managed when I asked to go to the restroom
I wasn’t told take a right go this way etc. they actually walked me there and stopped what they were doing to provide that level of customer service.
The food did not live up to the hype. I was sick the day after. The service, however, was great.
The new Ocean Prime Chicago has your favorites...Sea bass, calamari, etc. The service is still working out the kinks. Longer wait times and less attention to detail than you would experience in the Indianpolis location. Beautiful restaurant, Beautiful views.
Birthday party. It was ok. We were seated in the back. Not by windows which turned out to be ok since it was quieter and my husband uses hearing aids. We ordered sushi as an appetizer which was ok kind of bland oddly. Everyone enjoyed their fish the steak my son got was fabulous. I ordered the lobster tails but the sides were not as good as we thought they would be. Asparagus had too much spices on it. Would rather keep it plain and fresh tasting. So all in all it was ok. Service was pretty good.
Our waiter Joe was the best! He literally made our experience the best! Awesome drinks too!
I had called the night before to request a table for 6 by the window. I was told that they could not guarantee it, but they would try their best. When we arrived, they told us that there are no tables for 6 by the window. It is disappointing to be mislead in this fashion; clearly, if there are no tables for 6 by the window, there is no way to accommodate the request I made. We would have left, but it was late and it would be difficult to correspond with 5 others to find another place.
Drinks at the bar from Rico were outstanding. Food and service from Heather was an 11/10. Thanks for an amazing anniversary OP Chicago! Much love from Michigan
Excellent! The food was delicious. Tuna tartare, East coast oysters to start. Sea bass cooked to perfection. Impeccable service. Beautiful dining room. Conversation friendly noise level.
Absolutely one of the best dining experiences in Chicago! We started off with the calamari and shrimp saute'. Our party of 5 agreed these were some of the best appetizers we've ever had. The berries and bubbles cocktail is delicious and its presentation is extraordinary! The entire dining experience was wonderful and the service was top notch!!
Great food and location
Great location off the water and few steps from Michigan Avenue.
The General Manager of Ocean Prime welcome us and was very personal, which we appreciated. Excellent staff
Location off the water.
Truly remarkable culinary experience. Every dish was outstanding. Had the Sea Bass and the other party had the Halibut. Might be the best fish I have had in a decade. Great wait staff. Kudos
Our server, Matthew B. was amazing. He was responsive to our requests and very professional. As we prepared to order, he offered a number of suggestions that we would not have tried otherwise. We will be returning and requesting Mathew.
it is very strange when there are other prices on the Internet than those on the menu of the restaurant.The surcharge was well over 10 %!
As a customer who reserves a table via the internet, you feel cheated.
Very bad style or gross failure of those responsible.
Excellent restaurant. Great views. Wonderful service and outstanding food.
Ocean Prime was an amazing spot for our 1-year wedding anniversary. We were greeted at the host stand with complimentary glasses of champagne, which was really generous and unexpected, but a wonderful touch and great start to our experience! Our server (I think her name was Carmen), was fantastic. She gave excellent recommendations and was always on top of it. We had an excellent night and cannot wait to visit Chicago again and come back!
Our 50th. Treated to champagne and beautiful desserts. Lovely evening. Waiter Chan was wonderful.
Everything about my experience was exceptional, from
The hostess , bartender, server ; and management!!!!!! I’ll be sure to return
An excellent top shelf restaurant! So glad you are here. Being excellence to the overall dining experience.
Loved this restaurant. Creative dishes, good selections. Excellent service.
Prixe Fixe menu always good.. Lobster Bisque awesome - Salmon/Tuna Poke awesome.. wine awesome.. a bit steep on the price.. but always good.
Our entire experience at Ocean Prime was fantastic! The meal was excellent and our waiter was exceptional. We came after the theatre on a Sunday. Their Sunday special is surf and turf and half priced bottles of wine. We had lobster bisque and a shrimp dish for appetizers; blackened snapper, and a porterhouse pork chop as main courses; and corn, brussel sprouts, creamed spinach, and whipped potatoes for sides. Key lime pie and butter cake for desserts. Everything was perfection. And we could not have had a better waiter - Darren Highsmith. He was everything you could ask for in a waiter - attentive, accommodating, with a warm and inviting personality. Lastly, many restaurants have become overly noisy. The noise level and ambiance were perfect.
Could not ask for a better experience
