    The food and service was outstanding! The only reason i didn’t give a overall 5 is because I ordered a Mosco Mule drink and the glass was full with 90 percent ice. The waiter brought me another drink but my guess just let the ice melt in their drink. Beware of the drinks! Otherwise this place is outstanding and expensive! 🍷😊

    Could not have made a better dinner choice. We were treated as VIP's from the moment we arrived. The food was incredible. Our server Brian was exceptional. We were treated to champagne at evening's end. A beautiful 53rd wedding anniversary was made most special by our new favorite restaurant, Ocean Prime.

    As always, a terrific experience at OP DC! Food, service, ambience, friendliness of staff, professionalism, timeliness, etc. were top notch! Shellfish Cobb Salad remains one of my favorite lunch meals of all time - anywhere. The deliberate quietness of the seating and layout is perfect for private conversations, whether business, romance, gossip, whatever. I, along with many colleagues and friends I know, LOVE this restaurant!

    Went here for my 1 year anniversary. Brian (I think that was his name) was an excellent server! I couldn't believe it was only his 2nd day on the floor. His knowledge of all the dishes was immaculate and he made very good suggestions from the menu. He made our anniversary feel very special and we will definitely be back. The dynamite roll, lobster bisque, and iceberg wedge salad were all good starters. My boyfriend got the ribeye and I got the 10 Oz filet. Both very juice. The garlic mashed potatoes was very good.

    Service was awesome and food /drinks were delicious. The only problem was that I asked for my lamp chops to be cooked between medium and medium well but it was well done. I tried to eat it but had to send it back. They give us free desserts but I was disappointed that the kitchen had no more chops.

    The only reason I wrote FAIR for OVERALL VALUE is that even without any liqueur the bill was over $400.00 for 3 people. The service was SUPERB, and the food is always excellent( although I asked for the same preparation of the Chilean Sea bass my wife had, and I got the "regular" version which had a cream/ butter sauce that was delicious but not what I wanted, AND they ran out of the Halibut at 7 PM REALLY??? and that was a "Special". This won't deter me from going back as we love Cameron Mitchell Restaurants. The food costs are skyrocketing but this is not their fault.....I still love the place

    Fantastic experience at Ocean Prime. Reservations made for Mother's Day but for an occasion that was not Mother's Day. Good brunch menu but other options also. The cocktail options were diverse and creative. The warm cinnamon bread was tasty. All 4 of us said we'd definitely consider ordering what we each had again -- the true sign of a tasty meal. Daniel was a great server -- attentive, professional, fun and knowledgable.

    I was tired by the time I got back to the hotel and wanted something special. Also something close. This sounded like it could meet both criteria. I did go out to the website and checked things out. Sounded good and I could make a reservation. Granted we eat early, but it was nice to ensure there wouldn't be an issue when we got there. No problem making reservation and we were seated right away. Water was brought out and drink orders taken immediately. They were set to give a nice slow meal, but when I expressed that I was exhausted and wanted to eat quickly they accommodated us. They made suggestions (calamari, which was awesome!) and knew the menu well. I ordered Chilean Sea Bass and my husband ordered scallops. We shared, both dishes were really good. Overall, I had no complaints! I recommend them.
