    First time there... Luke & Ashley were our Servers... it took a while for us to order... Luke was on it when it came to water refills... I ordered the Lamb Chops, they were delicious, but not hot. I sent my plate back and the mgr came back with it, the lamb was no hotter than when I sent it back, I just had no desire to send it back again. The bread was delicious as well as my Risotto. The rest of my party really enjoyed their food. It was a little louder than expected, the table behind us was so loud we could barely hear ourselves. Beautiful restaurant, great food. Planning to go back!

    Fantastic restaurant. The food was delicious and fresh. My steak was cooked perfectly. But what stood out was how welcoming they were to my four-year-old. Many fine dining places roll their eyes at younger kids. They went above and beyond to make her feel special.

    The food tasted wonderful and the service was good but there was so much butter in everything that I spent the rest of the day dealing with “digestive” issues. I have a pretty strong stomach but I felt awful the entire afternoon and evening. Tasted really good going down though.

    I ordered the scallops, one of the most recommended dishes. The scallops were okay but the risotto that they were layered on was so salty that it is not eatable. As a side we were really looking forward to the truffle fries, only they seem to have forgotten to use truffle oil. For a $250 meal fro two, it it not acceptable.

    The Chilean Sea Bass is very good. But, please put more of the mashed potatoes with it. The potatoes go really well with the fish, but there wasn't enough.

    We dined on the Sunday evening of Father’s Day weekend so we understood when they ran out of some seafood entrees on the menu. The server did not communicate this fact until very late in our wait for food. There also seemed to be plenty of staff just kind of moving about the room but not engaging with filling up waters or clearing plates. Also, the ambiance needs work. Weird playlist of music for a dining establishment and many people coming in shorts and t-shirt. We have been to many other Ocean Primes… DC for one. Very nice atmosphere, excellent service, business casual to nice dress. The KC Ocean Prime has none of that. Will pick Eddie V’s in KC every time.

    It was our first time and we enjoyed it. It will be nicer once you get the scaffolding down out front. When we left we noticed a sewer type smell in the lobby leaving. It was a bit pricey we felt also.

    We have had dinner here twice so far, both times excellent. It's the little things with service, that make them stand out. I love seafood but it is so hard to find quality seafood living in the midwest. This has become one of our favorite restaurants. It is a little pricy, but worth it.

    My waitress had a horrible attitude! When I asked for a manager, she spent time talking about me TO him before allowing him to speak with me DIRECTLY. Therefore, when he arrived at my table, he was already on “ready set go”. I had been there multiple times before & enjoyed EVERYTHING. This experience made me NEVER want to return. I’m so disappointed after so many great experiences and several hundred dollars spent there.

    Great time! Great staff, very nice and clean. Food was great! I liked the noise level, it was perfect. No yelling by any means but the noise of chatter and laughter. No need to whisper and talking at a normal level doesn't leave everyone in your conversation. And they had quiet areas. Over all 5 stars! I had a good time!

    Loved the goat cheese Ravioli. Our servers were wonderful. Sadly disappointed with the soups and main dish. Was not a $250 meal, but would have happily paid 1/2 that.

    Very nice place & the food was amazing . But I did make reservations & I showed up 3 mins late my table still was not cleaned after a host said it was ready . They made us wait back in the waiting room finally sat us down but then moved us again . A little frustrating especially going through that with reservations. My waiter was great though!
