    Very slow. Took forever to get a drink and then another 30 minutes to order. Two and a half hour meal. Server was great… just seemed overwhelmed and busy. Food was great!

    After spending $700 for 4 people celebrating a special occasion, I’m pretty disappointed. The service was slow and even a simple thing like sparkling or still water seemed to be difficult for the staff (who said she was new no less than 3 times…I know staffing is difficult right now but I think spending time with staff before turning them loose is really important). We ordered the most expensive entrees on the menu including the $90 steak special. The steak was over cooked and either the server or the chef doesn’t know what “Pittsburg style” means. They only took $23 off the bill. The steak knives also need to be sharpened. I had lamb and I literally couldn’t cut it…and the lamb was actually very tender. I asked for another knife and it was as dull as the other. I’ve see an sharper butter knives. I’m not normally one to complain as I’ve lived my entire working life in the service industry so my hope is the restaurant corporate staff reads this and makes the necessary adjustments. KC loves good food and loves the CCP area. I will be back because the ambience is great and there is plenty of promise…just spend the time to get the levels up to the standard when the price is $175/person.

    Mostly underwhelming. Almost too loud to talk. Too dark to read the menu without a light (my vision isn't perfect anymore but I never need an extra light). Oysters were great. Fish and crab cakes pretty average. Very difficult to get a drink--20 minutes from the time I finished a cocktail to bottle of wine arriving. We probably won't go back.

    I had never been to Ocean Prime but overall a 10/10 experience. I celebrated a one year anniversary and we were greeted with a complimentary champagne toast 😌! We had steak and salmon and both were phenomenal. Our server also gave us a desert on the house! I was so pleased about my experience (we felt so much love) and it was a great place to celebrate that milestone! Highly recommend

    I was completely disappointed. The ambiance was nice outside of loud table next to us. The service was attentive and handled ordering, food delivery and checking in at good intervals. I was extremely unhappy with the food itself. Our order consisted of 3 course meal - Lobster bisque which was delivered hot however it was bland; 8oz Filet was tasteless. Cooked as requested with shrimp scampi included that had no flavoring that resembled expected scampi flavoring. Our sides: whipped potatoes ( no kind of seasoning) and spinach were ok. The jumbo crab cakes were fishy and no flavor unless you ate with the aioli. The dessert, butter cake , was delicious.

    It was my hubbies birthday, and the waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. My husband really enjoyed himself, from the teriyaki salmon w sticky rice, from his pineapple drink from the ambiance he was very much appreciative. Thank you ocean prime for making my husband’s special day a night he enjoyed and will remember. We will be back for date night.

    As always, the wait staff was impeccable in their attentive service and hospitality. Luke was just amazing and so was the rest of the team. (Unfortunately I don’t remember their names). They made my birthday a truly memorable occasion. Following dinner we went upstairs to Prime Social which was a delight, as it always is. This restaurant has quickly become on of my preferred locations in KC; presently at the top of my list. Having worked on Wall Street and lived in NYC I can testify first hand, that this is a high quality experience - One worthy of your time. Ocean Prime offers a premier setting and ambience for my clients, friends, company associates and celebrations. It’s an awesome date night as well, although, I haven’t had one of those here - yet. :) Thank you Ocean Prime.

    Excellent experience as always. Reservations were easy to make online, food was absolutely great and our server Danielle was attentive, fun and made the experience all the better. Prime Roll was excellent and the grouper and blackened snapper were prepared perfectly. Ended the night with espresso martini's and a huge piece of carrot cake that topped the evening. Looking forward to the next time!
