The restaurant as extremely crowded. The staff although kind were not as attentive as I expected. My husband I frequent Mastros and just decided to try something new. The appetizers were mediocre and I actually had to send back my entree because the sea bass was slightly over cooked and not seasoned. I will not be returning.

Delightful evening with excellent craft cocktails including special requests. Food was excellent including perfectly cleaned oysters on the half shell and a variety of appetizers. Fillet mignon was a tasty medium rare with a savory blue cheese crust. Service was top-notch and ambience was lovely. Able to have a conversation without getting drowned out by sound. Would highly recommend and go again. A bit pricey.

Didn’t enjoy this experience at all. Server seemed to just want to up sell everything and not make a memorable experience and then questioned if I knew how a steak is prepared—it was overcooked. I won’t be returning.

This was a very good experience at Ocean Prime. I ordered the crab bisque as a starter which was very good and it had a decent portion of crab meat which was placed on the bottom of the plate and the soup poured over it. The crab cakes I ordered as the entree were also excellent and it was plates over a sweet mustard sauce. The atmosphere was great and the pretty table booth where I sat added to the ambiance. Overall a good experience and good waiter. I’ll include a review on the waiters the next time I dine here to validate our good service. Our waiter Nate was very good and obviously experienced.

My experience was horrible. My husband and I both order filet mignon, I ordered mine medium well and he order his well. Mine came out medium and his came out medium well, and we had to send them back to be cooked longer. The food was just unappetizing and a waste of money like everything was rushed and undercooked.

Crowded due to Valentines Day causing 15 minute delay from my reservation time. Once seated everything was prefect, the waiter was top notch.

We have dined at Ocean Prime several times and each time have enjoyed excellent food and service. Great spot for a date night or special occasion. Ask for William as he is an awesome waiter! Personalble and attentive.

My husband and I went to Ocean Prime for Valentine’s Day Dinner. We had a reservation but it still took a while to be seated. A lovely gentleman escorted us to our table and our server gave us menus but then disappeared. Approximately 10 mins later, another server came introduced herself and took our order. Needless to say, we were hungry but it took a while for our food to come. We ordered the shrimp cocktail, scallops and risotto, crab cakes, lobster Mac and cheese, and garlic mashed potatoes. The shrimp cocktail appetizer was good - nice size prawns. The crab cake and scallop entrees were cooked well but lacked seasoning. The lobster mac and cheese was tasty but light on lobster. The garlic mashed potatoes were creamy and light. All in all, the meal was ok but we were a bit surprised at the lack of service and level of execution given the restaurant’s prices. Final Thought: We should’ve made reservations down the street at Mastro’s. They’re impeccable!

Great service. Good wine list. Some food was good, some wasn’t. The shrimp cocktail, jalapeño potatoes, lobster Mac, mushrooms were great. The lobster/corn dish was great. King crab was dry, some oysters were not good, sea bass was tasteless.

Everything was great! Our servers were knowledgeable, quick, friendly, and very helpful. The food was excellent, and it may look pricey, but it's well worth it for such a lovely restaurant, great atmosphere, and great service.

This is one of our "go-to" restaurants for me and my friends. The food is excellent, service is top-notch, and I appreciate the vegan/vegetarian menu so we can all have an elegant, delicious meal.

Service was slow, it took nearly an hour to receive the meals after ordering. In addition my steak was undercooked. Also it took nearly 20 additional minutes after the steak was serviced to receive the baked potato that was ordered as part of the meal. Very disappointed overall and will not return or recommend in the future.

Food is good but very overpriced and we are used to spending a lot of money on dinner. We also felt like our waiters were trying to turn the table quickly.
