Ocean Prime - Washington D.C.
Loved this location! delicious food and great service. Great for a birthday or anniversary
The food was awesome I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who like great food and drinks.
Second time there and we enjoyed more than first
Valet lost our keys and had us waiting outside for 30 minutes
Service was a little slow but it was valentines day weekend so it was expected. Food was phenomenal
Service was second to none.. food was worth ever penny.. I would recommend to anyone who wants great food and excellent service.. beautiful place inside and I will definitely attend again.
I have been here multiple times because I like the food and the restaurant overall. This visit was not so impressive. I had 8 o'clock reservations for 2 and I wasn't seated until 5mins after 9. The 4 young lady standing at the check-in desk seemed very dismissive when I inquired about how much longer for my wait time. I was told 5 more mins every 15mins. My food that came out was the wrong order and one order came out room temperature but we didn't send it back due to the time constraints because we didn't want to miss out or be late for our plans after dinner that we were unable to attend because of late arrival. Finally the valet misplaced my car it took them 20 mins to bring it around. The gentlemen asked me repeatedly which vehicle was my car in spite of having the valet ticket that I was given when I arrived.
Aside from the wait, everything was amazing
Good food nice environment. Entrees are a bit pricey and sides are à la carte. Our only criticism was the reservation process. Our reservation was scheduled for 7:15. When we arrived, the hostess told us that there was a 25 minute wait. So really my reservation of 7:15 was actually at 7:40.
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.
Everything was perfect. Food, service, ambiance. I will definitely go back
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.
For a first time experience in exquisite restaurant, it was amazing!! My girlfriend and I really enjoyed ourselves.. The food was excellent, waiter was nice & attentive, we didn't have to wait on the food long, and the vallet parking really helped.. Thanks for the wonderful dining experience!!
Crowded due to Valentines Day causing 15 minute delay from my reservation time. Once seated everything was prefect, the waiter was top notch.
Very romantic setting and great food
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!
Fish was ok.
Steak and lobster was very good
Spinach was good.
service was ok
Bar tender can’t make a sex on the beach??
Excellent. Im a regular client. Best salmon and crab cake sandwich in DC.
The food was excellent and my Manhattan was included in the happy hour menu!! I would definitely dine here again!!
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.
Excellent service and perfect location for business meal
This was extremely nice. I will definitely be back. Loved everything.
It was awesome! The staff made sure we felt welcomed and our waiter Dale made sure everything was to our liking. I will be returning
The food was excellent. Everything about this place was wonderful.
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.
Great food but pricy
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.
It was my moms birthday and the service was great. They gave her dessert and a glass of champagne. Overall great experience
Went for my birthday and had the absolute best dining experience.
Birthday celebration. Crab legs amazing. Shima (not sure of spelling) the server was great. She even gave me a slice of delicious chocolate cake on the house. We will Definitely will be back.
When you want to enjoy a special night on the town, Ocean Prime is the place! Great four, attentive service and fun people watching combine to create a memorable evening.
Simply amazing. Knowledgeable staff that is always eager to help and a menu that is sure to please.
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.
This was thee best dinner ever. My husband was very pleased with EVERYTHING and this was for his birthday. Our waiter was very attentive and got everything right. I have absolutely no complaints. The best money ever spent on dinner. Will be back again
It is a terrific restaurant with Rebecca the best bartender in DC.
