Ocean Prime - Washington D.C.
Nice atmosphere very inviting staff and great food!
Great food. Even better service. 100% recommend.
Trying to get a bartender’ attention was equivalent to pulling teeth in a car swerving in the rain... Impossible, painful and FRUSTRATING! The food was excellent but the service was awful. 4 bartenders were working and none would actually come by to ask if we wanted another drink or if the food was ok. Not to mention, there was a bartender there that had a very condensing attitude whenever we asked for something. It took 25 minutes for my check to be printed... just a horrible experience. Especially coming from a customer that frequents Ocean Prime.
Great food and service!
I show up to the restaurant and I got the table I reserved it was everything perfect so far me and my girlfriend were happy celebrating her birthday. But then the server show up I ask for drinks and it took 30 min for the drinks to get to my table. Then server come back and ask my food order I order all the food we want to eat then the server left and never come back until it was time for the pay the bill. But when my girlfriend and I got the food we need more drinks and steak sauce some butter to make hour 255 dollars diner perfect. Instead we eat half our food and ask for box to go. I still left the server a descent tip. But is not what I expected when I booked a reservation at these establishment which has good reputation and for the price of the meal.
I took a friend there for his birthday and we both loved it. We will be back again. Excellent service, food, ambiance and overall dining experience! Thank you
We absolutely enjoyed every moment of our dinner from the prompt setting upon entering, the seating, our waiter and all the staff was pleasant. The bread, scallops, to the bread pudding was absolutely delicious. They also offer wine bottle half off on sunday..we will be going again.
First time at Ocean prime meal was excellent will do again
Bryan was amazing! He was so nice and funny! The food is always good. The new lobster Mac and cheese recipe wasn’t the best but I did enjoy it. I think it’s too cheesy!
Perfectly cooked steak. Impeccable service.
Fantastic server and delicious food. It was a great dining experience.
I was impressed by all of the staff at Ocean Prime. My family was treated like special guests there. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
Great restaurant week menu. The food was even better than expected (I already had high hopes beforehand). A little expensive ordinarily but the restaurant week prices were a good deal.
Service was terrific. However, the meal was mediocre. I dine out often and I am accustomed to paying a high price for a good meal. However, this was high priced for an average meal: nothing special.
I went during restaurant week. I was super excited to go, I invited 2 friends to meet me. It was just ok and I honestly would not return.
The valet has a terrible attitude. The greeters that take your name for tables has a horrible attitude and despite me making an reservation a month prior to the date i still had to wait over 30 min to be seated.
Amazing food as always. We love Ocean Prime. Will come again .
This restaurant was highly recommended to me. The service, food, and drinks were amazing. I can't wait to return to this establishment!
We had a party of 7 during restaurant week. The food was amazing, the service excellent and the ambience perfect for fun and conversation.
Our waiter William was excellent and the food was amazing!
My waiter was very informed and helpful. My steak was cooked to perfection and my husband loved the lobster mac and cheese as well.
Me and my boyfriend celebrated our anniversary here this last Friday it was amazing everything was great down to our dinner and dessert we will definitely be back!
Great menu choices! Loved the ambiance and waiter was knowledgeable of menu. Great service!
Outstanding service! The food was absolutely delicious!
The Food was excellent! Great variety to choose from!! Even had a kid friendly Junior Adult Menu!
Everything was good went for my bday Goodman Owen waiter knew everything on the menu explained it to a T
I went to this restaurant for restaurant week and the service was terrible. 3 hours for two people, 2 drinks, 1 app, and 2 restaurant week meals. It was a busy evening and we arrived early for our reservation. We had to wait, but that was expected. After a short wait we were promptly seated. We were promptly offered water and our waiter arrived a few minutes after. He took our drink order and then returned to take our full order. It was a wait for the drinks, which was expected, an extended wait for the appetizer and all of the courses. It took 30 mins to get a scoop of ice cream and 45 to get the cinnamon bun bread pudding with a scoop of ice cream on the side. The reason for the extended delay, I asked the waiter for my scoop of ice cream on the side. The first set of desserts were 2 bread puddings with ice cream on top. I explained that that was not what we ordered as my brother only wanted a scoop of ice cream. The second set of desserts had ice cream on top of the bread pudding again and a slice of carrot cake. The third set of dessert finally had the scoop of ice cream that my brother asked for but again the ice cream was on top of the bread pudding, the fourth time I had it packed to go. They forgot the lobster Mac & cheese so we had that to go too. I spoke with the manager as it took 2 hours to get our main meal and at that time we still had not received our desserts yet. His response was that the restaurant was packed so that we should expect a wait for our food, but that he would comp some of the items on our bill. After he left our table the dessert was brought out wrong for the third time. When he returned with the item comped bill, my brother noticed that we had been charged full price for the restaurant week entree even though all of the other aspects of the 3 course meal were billed at restaurant week price. We called the waiter back and he returned with the correct bill. We paid and left. We definitely won’t be back.
We dined here on 1/16/20 for Mom’s birthday, which happened to be during Restaurant Week. Delicious food with just right-sized portions, but the service left a lot to be desired. There were very long gaps between courses. They ran out of dessert spoons, so we ate dessert with soup spoons. One of the spoons had to be replaced because it still had stuck-on food from a previous diner.
I’ve been to Ocean Prime in other cities, but this experience dissuades me from revisiting the one in my backyard.
I went here during restaurant week. So of course it would be more crowded......had to wait a bit even though we had reservations. We waited at the bar. The drinks are awesome but expensive. Happy hour ends at 6:30......who ends a happy hour at 6:30 instead of 7! The food was great, can't beat $35 for a three course meal!
My filet was perfect!!!!!!!!!!!! Service was excellent
Visited during restaurant week. Service was amazing, food was just ok. Wine list amazing.
I had a valid $50 dollar gift card, the manager said that the gift card was fraudulent. I insisted him to check the balance of the giftcard in their website, he refused. Didn't expect this poor service at a fine dining establishment like Ocean Prime.
Spectacular meal -- with service on point. Steak done to perfection, lovely atmosphere for conversation. Generous sized table -- no scrunching. Lovely wine. The stuff memories are made of.
Service was Exceptional, i felt very relaxed and taken care of! Also food came out in a very timely manner and was delicious.
Kyle was phenomenal I had the Scallops which were cooked to perfection and my date had the Sea Bass that was flavorful, flaky and exquisitely seasoned. Fourth time I have been there and although having dined around the world still find this to be one of the best!!
Took too long to be seated.
Waiter was not very attentive.
Price was exorbitant
Thank you for a great night out! Everything was perfect, especially the service. Our server Edwin was incredibly knowledgeable about every item on the menu and his passion for food was apparent including the wine as well. The food was superb. The whole evening was a great treat.
Phenomenal experience food was mind blowing a few of my guests were first time diners here and they were blown away great for business meetings even better for pleasure I could eat here every day. Our server Edwin was phenomenal he provided the quintessential dining experience.
Great food and service. Lucky the visit was during the holidays because we were able to a reservation at a decent time.
