Ocean Prime - Washington D.C.
Overall would recommend
My husband and I went to Ocean Prime for his birthday and I must say everything was fabulous from the food, drinks, service and ambiance. I would definitely recommend! The filet was to die for. YUM! They even gave us a birthday discount :-)
We really enjoyed our recent dinner - went on a Sunday evening when they have a Surf and Turf $55 2 course menu. 1/2 price bottle of wine (up to $99 I believe) and smooth professional service , it’s no wonder the dining room and bar were pretty full by 6:30 pm. Will definitely return.
Really enjoyed the dining experience.
The ambience was wonderful. The food was hit or miss. The oysters were delicious. The french soup was also a standout dish. The surf and turf left a lot to be desired. The main dish was luke warm on arrival. The steak was bland tasting and the seafood portions were small. The cork fee was a little pricey as well. All in all, we've had much better dining experiences in the city. We expected much better quality given the reviews. We won't be returning to this location for dinner. Might try the bar during happy hour.
My first time at Ocean Prime was absolutely amazing.my husband got the teriyaki salmon I got the crabcakes both were delicious.
The food was delicious and the servers were amazing.
Great food and amazing service. One of the best restaurants in DC.
Our waiter was great food was great, for the price no, we had no drinks a steak 3 sides and grouper shouldn’t be 200$.00 anywhere period. Steak wise u can go to Mikes in Springfield for half the price food just as good I have eaten at Ruth Cris and Morton’s MIKES IN SPRINGFIELD FOOD IS JUST AS GOOD but it’s was great ambiance was great service superb but w/o drinks not for 200.00$ and I didn’t even pay!
Loved it, very hip spot, as an out of towner I loved the whole place ,very trendy
We ate from the Valentines Day menu and were not disappointed. The filet migon was cooked perfectly and the stuffed lobster was filled with juicy meaty chunks of lobster with bread crumbs. My wife had the Chilean sea bass which was silky but firm. What made the night really special was our server Jacqueline. She was attentive without being annoying. She also recommended several items on the menu and each one was a home run.
The food was not as expected for the pricing. The presentation and taste was not really worth the hype. Just my personal opinion.
Excellent food and service. Our waitress, Shy, was very attentive and courteous as well as the entire staff. The Ribeye is arguably the best I’ve had and the crab cakes were also outstanding.
The drinks were perfectly mixed; you must try the “Rye on the Hudson” (I believe that’s the name)-it is phenomenal.
I will certainly be back.
My waiter was the primary reason for the service. Having never been to Ocean Prime, he was patient as my wife and scoured the menu, he offered suggestions and his personal opinion. It was an amazing experience.
Ocean Prime was amazing! My boyfriend and I went there as a Valentine’s Day date and I couldn’t have been happier. We made a reservation for 7 pm and by 7:15 we were seated, food ordered, drinks served, and appetizers on the way. Our waiter was very helpful and checked up on us consistently. My boyfriend’s wagu steak he ordered was cooked to perfection (which is not the norm because he is VERY picky on how his steak is cooked) but he said it was the best steak he had ever had. We both walked out of the restaurants raving about the experience and we will definitely be back on our next trip to DC!
Special thanks to Kyle for a wonderful vale times day celebration. Prompt server followed by a stellar meal. Very enjoyable and I would highly recommend.
Ocean Prime was wonderful. The food and service was great.
Went for Valentine’s Day. Glasses and silverware was dirty. Food wasn’t worth the money. I wine and water glasses went empty for lengthy periods of time.
Overall it was a good experience I think the only thing that would have made it better was the ambiance, they were playing pop music and for a restaurant that I wanted to be more romantic that could have the slight difference. Waiter was great so service was good and the food was amazing.
Excellent food, excellent service.
EVERYTHING WAS ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL! From the drinks to the food and the high level of service. Even the water was delicious. I will definitely visit Ocean Prime again.
We enjoyed our meals for Valentine’s Day! Food and service was great and the waiter even accommodated to our request to change seats.
We had a great time. Service was great. Food was good but not superb.
Greeted at the door by 5 unhappy women. No hello, no smile, dead stares. Left us standing there while they searched for our reservation and not until I pulled out my phone to pull up my open table app did they say, no I found it. Our hostess brought us to our table, in the bar although we had the reservation for 3 weeks, without a smile or acknowledgement, put the menus down and walked away. They were the most unhappy miserable crew we have ever encountered even the bar tenders looks miserable. Our waitress was very pleasant. The lump crab cocktail was tasteless the red snapper was good.
We dine out frequently and because of the hospitality we will never go back. Management needs to have a talk with the hostess crew.
Ocean Prime was recommendation to me by a friend. Had reservation @ 7pm arrived @ 6:50 and was seated by 7:10 PM, the server I forgot his name was very polite and attended to us without asking. The food was fantastic ( but come with a hearty appetite) Calamari was some of the best I've had in a while seasoned well. The wait staff were all dressed well and professional with a sense of humor.
It was an unforgettable night with great wine and food.
Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Looking forward to our next visit!
This is my favorite restaurant in Washington DC. I usually entertain visitors and friends here. I love it for business lunches and dinners. I visited this week and it took us more than 30 minutes to get our food, and it was quite unusual. Anyhow, the place is amazing if you are hosting a business lunch. Require some of the very nice round tables which are the best to hold conversations.
The food and service is always excellent. This is one my favorite restaurants in DC
This was my first time going and it was beyond my expectations. Our waiter Dale was perfect, he knew menu and suggested that my girlfriend get the fish (Salmon). I already knew what I wanted, which was the Bay Scallops with fresh pea risotto and a side of asparagus with hollandaise sauce.
Atmosphere was very nice......food was even better. Service was a bit slow
We came from the eastern shore of Maryland to celebrate my husbands 79th birthday. The wait staff was very accommodating and attentive. This was a very pricy restaurant but food was delicious especially the lamb chops and calamari! They offered a complementary dessert for my husband as a birthday gift! So nice.
Amazing place food was perfect and you get great attention put on you.
Business lunch was long and slow.
Very poor waitress
Great food and service! A bit overprice but perfect for special ocassions
First time at Ocean Prime after many weeks of walking past and wondering if this was a good spot to eat. Well, we were not disappointed at all. The ambiance of the restaurant is not loud where you can have a conversation and actually hear the other person across the table. The décor is beautiful and well placed throughout. We went on a Friday evening and it was a nice crowd and the mirrors gave the place a spacious look. Will definitely return as the food was good and our waitress was spot on with recommendations.
Celebrating our Highly Effective Educator Status!
excellent from beginning to end, including dessert! took me 3 days to finish that carrot cake! generous portions and the waiters are so attentive and knowledgeable!
I love Ocean Prime! It is a very classy restaurant with excellent food and the staff is phenomenal!
