The food was excellent. The South African lobster tail was picture perfect and tasted even better. The bubbles and berries martini was entertainment and so tasty had to have two

Food was okay. The steaks were overcooked. Not sufficiently salted. Service was slow and not attentive enough. I would come back for happy hour or lunch, but not the best dinner location.

Need to work on social distancing. Tables need better dividers for seats that are parallel. I think they need to have staggered seating groups too close together.

Kyle & Chris were amazing from start to finish. They were very knowledgeable about the menu and even helped when we had questions about food allergens. The ambiance were sophisticated chic, food amazing. We were celebrating a promotion and anniversary Kyle gifted us with champagne.

Overall I would recommend Ocean Prime for anyone wanting a touch of sophistication

The food here was outstanding! As usual. The drinks were just alright, left a little to be desired. Service was good. But the vibe is different than when the restaurant first opened. parking is tedious in that area

The best part of the night was by far the drink and appetizers. The Best Manhattan I have had in the DC Metro area. We had the calimari, the deviled eggs, and the tar tar. All three dishes were phenomenal. I would recommend the tuna over anything else however. For our dishes we had Alaskan crab legs, Chilean sea bass, a ribeye, and 3 lobster tails. The crab legs were fantastic as to be expected. While the flavor of the steak au poivre was impeccable. Absolutely fantastic, unfortunately it was also, over cooked. The sea bass was a little under cooked, but still just amazing. This could have been addressed easily, but i didn't want to be a problem for our waiter. The lobster tails were perfect as well. The absolute biggest compliment of the night goes to our waiter and his assistants. He was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and attentive. He honestly elevated our experience quite a bit. He was funny and charismatic. I would absolutely return for either a happy hour, or another dinner. I would gladly bring more friends to this establishment.

The manager and doorman chased us down the street falsely accusing us of running out on the check before they checked with the server/bartender to find out that we did indeed pay. I couldn’t believe this even happened.
