    It was our anniversary so i mentioned it on my reservation. When we came in the door we were greeted and also told happy anniversary. The food was fresh and flavorful. We also took a togo box so it was plentiful. The waiter was attentive. Loved the ambiance. Yes I would return.

    Amazing first time experience....greeted amazingly at the door...even valet was great. Our server Will seemed to be having a bad day but still pretty good. My only complaint was I had three desserts and he only boxed up one but I paid for all three so I do feel I was ripped off on that.

    My guest and I were disappointed at the value versus Price ratio. Service was ok. Sea bass was just ok. Nothing to praise. My guest had a steak and corn. The steak size was ample but it was not particularly tasty. The corn tasted like it was out of a can and was low in quality. The coffee was weak, all four cups. Sorry I can’t recommend your restaurant.

    Ocean Prime was just immaculate, I took my wife here for her birthday and when I mean they did not disappoint I told the server one word and that the food was phenomenal. One of the best Steaks we ate in our life I had the fillet mignon & my wife had the Ribeye, top tier food and highly recommended to everyone.

    After coming here twice before, I took my mom here for her birthday. It was a great time and Bryan, our server, made the experience amazing. (This was the 2nd time I had him as a server) We tried the shrimp sautee, prime house salad and lobster bisque to start-- all excellent. The portions here are very generous and we barely had room to finish our entrees. This was my 1st time getting the sea bass and it was very good. My mom got the teriyaki salmon which she enjoyed. All in all, Ocean Prime is a great restaurant and I look forward to being a repeat patron.

    Restaurant was lightly populated when I arrived to find my luncheon companion already seated. We were promptly approached by the waiter who took our drink orders. Despite the relatively few number of people in attendance, it took longer than expected for our drinks to arrive. The food and drink were excellent. When our lunch was finished, we waited an inordinate amount of time for the waiter to come around and ask if we wished to order anything further or were ready to receive our bill. In fact, we had to signal one of the busboys to go fetch the waiter. This was also mildly annoying, as by this time the restaurant had only a few tables at which patrons were dining. We finally got the waiter's attention and were somewhat staggered by the size of the check. Especially surprising was the fact that the check was presented to us on the waiter's electronic device and provided only three options for a tip: 20%, 30%, or 40%. Notwithstanding the shortcomings of this particular waiter, the dining experience overall was very good. The quality of the food will bring us back.

    We went for lunch. We had the Lump Crab Cake appetizer which was pretty good. My friend had a sushi roll, and I had the etoufee. My friend enjoyed his sushi. My etoufee was good except for the fact that the shrimp were dry. Kind of disappointing at a seafood restaurant. I also had the peanut butter pie dessert. It was very good. At the beginning, we ordered cocktails and they seem to come out pretty slowly. Overall, is it a fantastic restaurant based on my experience? No. It’s pretty good. And that’s it, unfortunately. I would say that it is overpriced for what it is. Probably wouldn’t go back

    We had a lovely meal at Ocean Prime. Prepare to spend a LOT of money. The sushi was very good. I had the cod and it was just OK, not a lot of taste but the potatoes and sauce were flavorful. My husband had the blackened sea bass and it was very good. Our waitperson was very knowledgeable and service was good.

    This was our first time at Ocean Prime restaurant in DC, took my 12 year old son on a dinner date. He wants to be a chef when he grows up. And was very happy that Jessica, our amazing server, was able to get the chef, Izzy, out to the table and give him some pointers on getting into an upscale restaurant kitchen. Food was delicious, Jessica was excellent, and we left extremely satisfied with everything. Great experience!
