Everything was amazing.. food, music, service.. Eli was a terrific and accommodating waiter. Recommended spot!
The customer service was spot on . I order the New York strip steak and the taste on its was not good. It didn’t have any seasoning & i ordered mine medium well and it tasted burnt. I will be sticking to Ruth Chris from now on. Just wanted to try something new and for my first time. I was highly disappointed.
Jasmine was TOTAL & COMPLETE AWESOMENESS!!!
I took my husband there for Father's Day. It was my first visit. There were lots of families, doing the same thing. Food was delicious; I had the scallops with risotto and my husband ate the filet mignon, with loaded baked potatoe.
Cons- small portions and expensive prices.
Kitchen service was slow; side dishes (brussel sprouts, brocolli/cauliflower) were burnt and cold; steaks, lamb shops, and snapper were excellent! Overall, a GOOD experience!
Everything was wonderful
My husband and I had beautiful first time
We had a very good experience, my guess enjoyed the food. thank you
Enjoyed our dinner at Ocean Prime but the service was VERY slow and we had to send my daughter's steak back due to temperature issues. It was Father's day, and I hope that was the service issue. Would go back in spite of our concerns.
Ocean Prime was a perfect place to take the family for Father's Day or any special occasion. We were seated right away and the staff was very attentive throughout our meal. The physical space is large, comfortable, and beautifully decorated.
The food was outstanding; jumbo shrimp bigger than my husband's thumb, perfectly cooked scallops, and the list goes on and on. We were shocked that the place wasn't more crowded but I suspect that will change as the word gets out.
The food was very good and the service was excellent
Did not like where the hostess seated us. We requested to move to another table. It took to long to get our drinks, appetizers, and meal.
Typically, we have exceptional service but this time we were disappointed. We brought a friend who had never been. No steak knife until we asked, bread wasn’t warm, had to send salad back to correct the cheese selection and confusion with the functionality of the new payment device. We realize our favorite server (Emanuel Cade) is no longer with Ocean Prime but for sure, he set the gold standard for service. Please take our feedback into consideration and we are affirming a much better service experience in the future.
Another exceptional dining experience at OceanPrime. Our meal was extraordinary and - as always - Jax, our server, was perfection. Bravo and thank you!

My new favorite restaurant! The service was amazing, all of the staff were on it with drinks and orders. The food was perfect. I had the Chilean sea bass and asparagus and both were cooked to perfection. My boyfriend had the filet mignon and shrimp scampi and that was delicious as well. For dessert I had the creme brûlée and it was by far the best I’ve ever had. I will definitely be back.
Great food and service. A little pricey, but I’ll go back.
Raven the waitress was amazing. Everything was great.
Excellent dinner, spoiled by inconsistent service. Long delay to get cocktails, bus staff dropped dirty knife on booth seat, but never cleaned it up. Menus left on the table. Food was terrific; management was responsive to requests when server was not available.
The host originally sat us by the kitchen, smelled like a dumpster with rotting seafood. Fishy and smelly. Food was ok at best, every dish tasted like it was microwaved and not made fresh. Sushi and seafood ordered didn’t smell fresh, being from Florida we know what seafood should taste and smell like. People were dressed in flip flops for dinner at 8:30pm and the overall crowd was not as expected due to the restaurant description. Not impressed. Wine was not the year stated in the wine menu, was off by 2 years and the waiter didn’t mention it until we noticed it. Again, not sure if this is typical but it was gross.
Great food, location, and service! I will definitely return.
Last week, my friend and I indulged our taste in fine dining with a great dinner at Ocean Prime. The ambiance is an intimate, understated elegance. Our waitress pointed out that we last visited in August ’19. You also couldn’t ask for better service. Our meal was delicious! We began with the Dynamite Roll appetizer: sushi-style tempura shrimp, served with spicy mayonnaise. Jan had two lobster tails for her entrée. These were big guys. They came with asparagus and drawn butter. I had Chilean sea bass. It was a tender 8 oz fillet, served on a bed of whipped potatoes & veggies in a champagne truffle sauce. We completed our repast with a warm butter cake dessert. The cake was served with berries & rich vanilla ice cream in a raspberry sauce. I heartily recommend Ocean Prime.
The food was amazing and the drinks celebrated my 29th birthday here and I want to go back I recommend the crab cakes 💣
I enjoyed the food, service and environment. I was unhappy with the of lack of customer service and unprofessionalism displayed by the manager with I attempted to use my gift cards. The manager needs hospitality training, which should include diversity training.
Went here for my first anniversary and it was an amazing experience
Best steak ever!! Service and food were excellent! Will definitely go back!
Great experience and fast service
Knowledgeable staff and astute
I was pleased to walk in and get seated I truly loved our waiter her name is Ravon Samone she was EXCELLENT
Date night experience: our first time at Ocean Prime and it was amazing! The service was outstanding, our waitress was Rebecca. She answered all of our questions and made some excellent recommendations. The food was very good, we had dragon sushi, filet mignon steak, garlic mashed potatoes, lobster Mac, and broccoli/cauliflower. The drinks were yummy and looked pretty.Oh and we had the butter cake for dessert with a glass of champaign to celebrate our anniversary. Overall a great experience and can't wait to go back!
Thank you for a wonderful lunch and great service
Since our first visit in September 2020,
we have wanted to return. This restaurant has it all, great, unique food,
excellent service and wonderful ambiance.
Also, as a bonus, Monday night is 1/2 price on bottles of wine and the wine list very complete. Doesn't get any better than that.
Great food with excellent ambiance. Not too overpriced!
Loved the ambiance, food, and wine! Great spot for a date.
Good food and good service - the calamari app and the Black Orchid drink are amazing!
Everything was great! The drinks, the lamb chops especially and the birthday dessert was my favorite.
My husband and I went there for dinner for our 35th Anniversary! The service and food was Amazing! Thank you for making our day extra special!
We enjoyed our food and the ambiance of the restaurant. Our waiter was OUTSTANDING!!!
The service, the food, and the ambiance are top notch. Can’t wait to go back again.
Really appreciated the service, they took great care of the kids so we could enjoy our dinner as well. Food lovely too.
Excellent Place. I Will Be Back In 2 Weeks
It was my husband and my 4th wedding Anniversary, we ordered the “specials”, Kansas City steak and African Lobster at the recommendation of the waiter. The steak was undercooked, tough and flavorless. The lobster was dry, tough and flavorless. We did enjoy the lobster bisque and butter cake. Unfulfilled by our steak and lobster meal we ended up going to Longhorn Steak for a better meal. Waiter was very attentive and apologetic but never bought the manager to the table to address our complaint. Paid our bill and left.
Excellent food and environment. Our server, Kyle, was very attentive and knowledgeable.
