We really enjoyed ourselves and had a great waitress. Her wine selection was spot on and she had a wonderful disposition. The restaurant even treated us to some complimentary champagne for our special occasion. A manager checked in to see if we were enjoying ourselves which was very thoughtful. The food was very good. Lobster bisque was extraordinary. The Cesar salad was just fine but not spectacular. Our filets were perfect!

We were sat in a side room in the back while the rest of the restaurant was mainly empty. There were plenty of tables for two elsewhere in the restaurant. If they did not feel our attire was fit then they should have sat us by the bar. However there were plenty of other individuals in Jeans and appropriate tops like we were dressed. We did have to send two items back for adjustments that should have been made, like no tomatoes and steak medium. We were not accommodated for the errors. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. I frequent the New York City location due to its proximity to my office. I have never had a below standard experience, nor treated as a second rate guest. I would not recommend the DC location. There are plenty of other establishments that will be happy to take on my business.

The Chicago Ocean Prime could take a lesson from DC location. Chicago very noisy and an inattentive staff. DC a polar opposite. Great meal, great service, great time!!

Everything was great. However, upon paying the bill ($198), a Visa Gift Card for $200 was submitted for payment (which was puchased 9/13 for $200 and we verified that the amount was correct at the time the card was submitted) however, according to our server he was only able to charge $165. Im having a problem understanding the explanation why the full amount of the bill was not done. Because it was my birthday, it posed an embassing situation for my grandson.

Could someone please let me know why this happened and how an issue like this does not occur again going forward. Also, we frequent Ocean Prime.

Feel free to contact me at (301) 520-6497 with any questions

I went to celebrate someones birthday and it was very nice. My waiter was so full of energy and answered every question we had extremely well. The food was amazing. The birthday boy had steak that was full of flavor and very tender. I had lamb chops that were to die for. The two sides were bacon creamed spinach and garlic mashed potatoes. Like I said before.... amazing! Now the restaurant is a bit pricey but it’s worth it in my opinion.

Everything was great. The service was perfect. The only hiccup was that my wife’s steak was very over cooked. Not a deal breaker by any means but when you are paying this price you do expect it cooked properly. That said, we would certainly go back. Great staff!

Hands down, the best dining experience I've ever had in DC thus far. The service was impeccable, and the food bumped my standards to the next level. The ambiance was incredible as well- I can't recommend Ocean Prime enough. I will most definitely be back as soon a fitting occasion presents itself.

I'm a regular but they really put out for my guests which I appreciated and so did they, they kept using the phrase fine dining which I wouldn't associate with this place but I guess they didn't, newly promoted Emanuel superb and sassy Janelle keeps diners on their toes. Thanks.

Ambience was eloquent, relaxed and great music. The service provided was attentive, sincere and not overbearing. Main entree was ok, desert was beyond delicious. I will definitely come back to Ocean Prime for the dining experience alone.

We were in town for a sports trip and your restaurant was recommended. You went far above any expectations we had. If we could only have had everything on the menu and the service was above ; beyond. Thank you so very much.
