Great service - friendly and inviting. The local bass was delicious as was the tuna tartar. My friend had a lamb and lobster surf-n-turf (not on the menu), but the waiter (and chef) had no problem at all making substitutions. I will definitely dine there during my next trip to Denver.

Celebrating a relative's anniversary and the evening was perfect. The Sunday special is a great value and the half priced bottles of wine paired perfectly with the steak and crab cakes. Thanks for making the evening memorable.

Another great visit. We had to wait a little for our table to be ready BUT that is perfectly fine because Ocean Prime is not one of the hipster Denver restaurants that limits your time at a table. We drive hour to get to Denver for dinner and some restaurants then tell you that they need the table back in 90 minutes. Insanely rude. The service is over the top and food, well always incredible.

This was the first time our experience at Ocean Prime wasn’t superb. They sat us 25 minutes after our reservation time. Took 10 for someone to come to our table. The entree I ordered they said was not available that night. I think our waiter could tell we were not off to a good start so he went and pulled some strings and was able to get it for me. I understand stuff happens but when you are paying a premium the service needs to be at a premium. Most of the Food was great, my asparagus was still a little raw. Will still go back just a little disappointed at this visit especially since it was our anniversary.

Arrived on time for rez, but waited an extended period of time, which was somewhat understandable given the bustling activities that Saturday. After the wait, were seated in an end booth, which was nice for conversation and comfort. Raul, (Mexico City) wait person, was friendly and good sense of humor. Our server, Brittany (Mass) was exceptionally nice, engaging and knowledgeable. The food was good, not exceptional for my taste, or what I expect for the price. My wife enjoyed her dish (scallops) more so than i (porterhouse chop). The valet, Jesse, I believe, was outstanding. He offered to come find us at The Crimson Room when the valet stand was closing, so that we could enjoy our anniversary date night. What a tremendous offer! Overall very nice night; we will return as we like the restaurant.

This was the worst dining experience we have ever had! When dining at a restaurant of this caliber, it should be perfect with dedicated attention. Doesn’t matter how great the food is, when the service is terrible, the food quality doesn’t matter. We dined with my mother and sister. It was a special evening. We have been trying to get them to come to Denver for years. We were at least 10 minutes seated before water showed up, another 15 before we saw a waitress, cocktails showed up another 15 minutes later. 45 minutes to just get drinks on the table. The waitress apologized and said we would have desert comped. Wow, comped desert before we even order. My wife tried to be nice and said we had no plans. We had to get the waitress attention to order dinner, never once poured our $200 wine, 2 people not drinking wine only had 1 cocktail in 3 hours, waitress never came & asked. Our steaks showed up after 2 ½ hours and never seeing the waitress. Then she had rude comments, “you said you had nowhere to go” & “I put your order in as soon as you gave it to me” REALLY! I had to seriously bite my tongue, because I respect my mother and did not want to make it worse for her. I have a second home in LoDo. I have dined all over Denver and many other large cities. I always tip very well and this was absolutely unacceptable. Go to Capital Grille for Larimer SQ. Steak House or any other in Denver.

The food was fantastic! I had Halibut & loved it. I recommend making a reservation since it is a busy restaurant. Also plan on spending some money, most entrees are about $50.00 each.

We had to push back our reservation due to a flight delay and the staff was very accommodating. We were seated in a small, private room with only a few other tables so it was a little quieter than the main dining area. Our server was attentive and very friendly. We enjoyed the fresh oysters, the wedge salad. We also shared the lamb chops and truffle fries. The fries were good, but the lamb was definitely undercooked—and I like my lamb on the rare side. The center was closer to raw than rare.

It is always a pleasure to eat there. My only issue is the upstairs bathroom. Single service in a drinking establishment. That's not realistic. Otherwise it was extremely enjoyable.

FOOD WAS DELICIOUS, AS ALWAYS. SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD. ONE OF OUR MOST FAVORITE RESTAURANTS IN DENVER, THE STEAK MELTS IN YOUR MOUTH.
OUR ONLY COMPLAINT WAS THE BAR AREA. WE ALWAYS LIKE TO GO DOWNSTAIRS AFTER DINNER FOR A DRINK AND TO LISTEN TO THE MUSIC. WELL, FIRST OF ALL IT'S ONLY ON FRIDAY NOW, AND MOST IMPORTANTLY WAS IT WAS REALLY BAD MUSIC AND WAY TOO LOUD. I UNDERSTAND THEY ROTATE BANDS NOW AND WE TRULY MISS THE 2 GUYS THAT USED TO PLAY THERE AS EVERYONE LOVED THE MUSIC. BUT THIS RESTAURANT IS NOT SUITED FOR A BAD JAZZ MUSIC WITH A NOT SO GOOD SINGER. WE HURRIED UP AND LEFT, WHICH WAS DISAPPOINTING. I HOPE THEY MAKE CHANGES TO THE MUSIC - OTHER THAN THAT IT'S A WONDERFUL PLACE UPSTAIRS ,

We went to Ocean prime in Larimer Square two Saturdays ago to celebrate a belated birthday for my girlfriend. The service, food, and atmosphere was top notch. Everyone held a high quality of service to their customers. They provided great recommendations and answered all questions we had. I had made a note on our reservation what we were celebrating and every server and staff that stopped by our table wished her a happy birthday and thanked us for choosing them to hold our celebration. The General Manager stopped by and asked us how we were doing and provided his business card, "just in case we needed anything". The food was perfection! There is a lot of stigma about fancy restaurants and the small portions but the huge price. While Ocean Prime is on the more expensive side, the portions were large and filling. Well worth the money we spent. The dishes were succulent, delicious and made so well. We had the crab cake and fried calamari for appetizers, the lobster bisque soup, the chop chop salad, the surf and turf, the lamb chops, the black truffle mac n cheese, and twice baked potatoes and creme brulee for dessert. Our drinks were bubbles and berries and the black orchid. My girlfriend also wanted her drink to "bubble", so they threw some dry ice into hers as well. The drinks were delicious and did not have the terrible after taste of alcohol that some drinks do. It was an amazing experience and I cannot wait to return.
