We went to Ocean Prime for happy hour. April was our waitress. She was fantastic. She took care of our every need. And, April really know her wines. The oysters were so very fresh. We always come to this restaurant while in Denver. Such a wonderful experience. You can’t go wrong with Ocean Prime Denver.

Our waiter was excellent. Very entertaining and on top of everything. Prior to dinner: We were surprised we were sort of TOLD to leave the bar to go to our tables. Usually people are asked to come to the hostess when ready. Some of us had just gotten our cocktails.

My bf and I were visiting from LA and celebrating our anniversary. Prime Ocean was amazing at accommodating all of our needs. They offered complimentary champagne and dessert! Ethan, our server, was nothing short of superb! 😊 He took his time to explain the menu and recommended a few items that were absolutely amazing. He was such a doll! My bf and I were more than satisfied. We enjoyed our time and anniversary. We would highly recommend.

Great food, unbeatable setting, wonderful service. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.

It is a bit pricey but you get what you pay for. Despite spending more on dinner than I have all year (i'm a student) it felt like I got my moneys worth.

Great for special occasions. Went for an anniversary and was greeted with complementary champagne and finished the night with a comped desert.

We celebrated our anniversary there and from the moment we dropped our car off at valet until we picked it up we were throughly impressed. The complimentary champagne as we waited for our table was an excellent surprise. We got seated quick, food was great and fast, dessert to top it all off.

Lobster bisque & calamari were both excellent. The have a couple NA beverages (mocktails) available the Cucumber Gimlet was light and refreshing. Service was mostly a light touch and the reflected view from the upper floor at sunset is outstanding. Had a nice time, highly recommend

Enjoyed the ambiance and service, however, the food was horribly over salted. I actually like a lot of salt. Wife’s salad and creamed spinach was inedible. Steak was over salted but I enjoyed it. Wife’s ahi tuna left a lot to be desired.

Our experience here was rather poor. Calamari had too much sauce (tasted like chinese food). The grouper was lacking flavor. It was slower but drinks still took a while. Our server (Elliot) forgot what we ordered, forgot to bring dessert menus and let our drinks sit at the bar while he did side work. The pork chop was the only redeeming part of the experience. We definitely left feeling ripped off as it was more of a diner experience for $100+/person - would not recommend.

Lovely dinner with my mom. We enjoyed all of the delicious food, drinks and dessert. Unfortunately, there was a fire in the upstairs bathroom that set off the fire alarm, not the greatest sound to dine to. Management did come by and apologized for the scare and assured us everything is safe. Overall, it’s a beautiful restaurant overlooking
Larimer Square perfect for any celebration or special night out.

We were super excited to eat here. each course was just OK. Not worth the $320.00 we spent.the appetizers were heavily sauced over cooked. The meat was ok but all of our sides were cold and hard. Clearly prepared way before our other food was ready.

Our server was very nice , but we were waiting for a very long time.

They seem unable to accommodate the large volume they get.

Overall super disappointed with the food.

Everything was absolutely fantastic!
I love the look of the restaurant. Two story glass fronted building on the corner of Larimer square allows a great view of the square below, and the lighting in the lobby is modern and elegant.
The presentation of the food and the plating was flawless. The waitstaff was attentive, friendly, and our Server Jason was utterly top notch. He knew so much about the food and clearly took pleasure in his job.
The Tuna Tartare sushi was beautiful and tasted amazing, matching the flavors and textures was a delight. The lobster bisque was served tableside and that little touch added so much elegance, and there was a lot of lobster meat inside.
I got the scallops paired with the rissotto and they complimented each other perfectly, and the rissotto was so creamy.
It was my friends birthday and he got a complimentary dessert of Creme Brulee, and the flavor was spot on.
I absolutely recommend Ocean Prime on Larimer Square. It's a gorgeous experience and you'll want to go back again and again.

It was good food as always. The lamb chops were quite fatty, we’re talking about 40% fat. Not sure we’d get those again. The crab legs were delicious and so were the tater tots. My shrimp was cooked a bit over, but very tasty.
Our server was super friendly and I felt bad for taking up a lot of his time talking about music and movies, but he was very sweet to stand there and engage in conversation when he had other tables to attend to.
The one issue we had was that the host said they would seat us on the wine room because it was a little quieter, and boy was is super loud because of the table next to us. Shouting at one another, using profanity, nonstop. We usually don’t care, but this was not a sporting event, it was dinner at a super fancy restaurant where we were spending hundreds. Just not quite the atmosphere we had hoped for. We didn’t want to be “those people” complaining, so we didn’t. A lot of the staff helped that table and non of them said anything either.

The noise level was a little high but I guess part of that is attributable to being seated close to the kitchen. I know that our server was trying to give us all the time we wanted to enjoy it all but I think a little more interaction would have been better in order to allow us to control the pace. Overall it was a good experience and would recommend the Ahi Tuna to anyone

Still our favorite place for a upscale dinner out. They have the best filet I have ever tasted. The food is excellent as is the cocktails and service. We always sit upstairs by the windows overlooking Larimer and its magical.

The ONLY complaint is the girl that consistently walks around with her clip board checking on tables it makes you feel like you are being watched and need to hurry up.

Absolutely recommend Ocean Prime (Larimer Square) for a special occasion dinner! One of the best dining experiences I ever had in Denver. Amazing views from the Veranda section, exceptional food/drinks, and excellent customer service (Jason was the best).

We had a glass of sparkling rose and berries & bubbles, shrimp cocktail, Caesar salad, ribeye steak with béarnaise, lamb chops, garlic mashed potatoes, creamed spinach, creme brûlée, and warm butter cake. Everything was truly amazing and that butter cake for dessert put us over the edge.
