    We usually go to 801 Chop or Eddie V’s when spending this much. It was a nice change. Food was excellent, service was great and the drinks were strong. Will definitely go back.

    John B, was excellent. We asked him for his recommendations and everything he suggested was so delicious and delightful. This was our first time dining at Ocean Prime, and it was memorable, the twin lobster tails and lamb chops were to die for! As side dishes we had jalapeño au gratin and risotto, both were exquisite. All in all this is one of the better dining experiences we have had. Btw…the lamp chops were so tender I was able to cut through it with a butter knife!

    We had a wonderful experience celebrating our anniversary at Ocean Prime. The food and service were amazing and the ambience beautiful. I rated the noise level as moderate for the restaurant but we were seated in a smaller room that was quiet and that was perfect for our celebratory evening out. I will definitely be back.

    I wish the music was not so loud. Honestly being our 1st time, the atmosphere was elegant, but the music didn’t match the scenery. To loud to have a normal conversation, we had to speak louder for our 4 person table to hear us. Otherwise our family enjoyed our food & service was stellar!

    Overall this is a good restaurant, good location… the service was good but we did wait at times for our server… most of our food was good and prepared well however, I ordered a steak cooked medium-rear to medium and asked the server if medium meant medium not over done… the steak came extremely over cooked… it was more than well-done! I expected a much better job from Ocean Prime the bill was extreme high to get a steak prepared this poorly… I was very disappointed with my meal on this visit!

    Expensive, but great quality. Best filet I have ever had. Great place for celebrations. We all got free champagne for my husband’s birthday and he got a free dessert. Their desserts are outstanding, large portions, and spectacular. Eye appeal. Over budget to go there often, just for special occasion.

    Dinner was excellent with two exceptions, neither of which ruined the meal. The calimari was 'chewy' (I assume over-cooked,and not uncommon in many restaurants) but the sauce was amazing. We asked for the recipe and the chef provided it! My husband had the lobster bisque, and he found it very bland. He even added salt and pepper and still found it so-so at best. However, we both had the filets with au poivre sauce, cooked medium rare. It was cooked perfectly and so delicious. The sauce was fantastic and just right for the cut. We got the jalapeno au gratin potatoes, and those also were wonderful. I couldn't help but rave a little to the waitress. Service was just right - she explained everything well, showed up just when we needed her, and was very pleasant throughout the meal. It's a very nice venue as well. Went upstairs to Prime Social after dinner and it did not disappoint at all! Very nice rooftop bar, and cocktails were just right. All in all, we'll go back here, altho given the price, only for special occasions. Definitely recommend (just don't order lobster bisque).

    Service was great, attentive wait staff. I enjoyed the sea bass and peanut butter tart as well as the Ocean sushi roll. My husband got the shell fish entree salad and lobster bisque and we were unimpressed with both. The cocktails, pineapple picante and berries and bubbles were both delicious (and the bubbles were fun.) the black orchid cocktail was just okay; more novelty than anything. The espresso martini was also just okay, very vodka forward. It was our anniversary and the front desk staff never recognized it, even though reservations asks if you’re celebrating anything special, which is a big fail for a nice restaurant. Our waiter also didn’t recognize it, but we also never said anything. We aren’t the kind of people who need a lot of pomp and circumstance, but for the money, it would be nice. Will we be back? Probably not just the two of us, but will if a larger group dictates. For the money, I’m just not sure we want to take another chance. But do want to stress our waiter really wanted us to have a good experience, he was awesome.

    Celebrating our 19th anniversary with server Brittney Workman. Excellent everything! First time here and other than the pricey wine list everything else was priced as expected at this ala-carte restaurant. Excellent steaks for seafood dining. Offers split plates and half orders which Brittney explained allows you to order multiple entrees to split when you can’t decide. We enjoyed a split 10oz filet, split sea bass, add on of 2 scallops with sides of risotto, garlic mashed potatoes, jalapeño au gratin and finally corn. Dessert was comp with Butter cake and it too was excellent. Excellent and well poured Old Fashion as well. Definitely recommend here and Brittney.

    The service outstanding The French onion soup Delish. The lobster tails AWFUL was undercooked looked & tasted bad. They replaced it and was still raw, they did not remove it from the bill or comp us. The suggestion for a Cabernet was smooth and very good. They had no baked potatoes said they e been in short supply I have not had that problem at other Restaurants. They also had no crab legs said they ran out of those too which is weird I’ve had no problems at other places. Save your money and go to Capital Grill.
