👍🏾 Good time.
Great time and great food for my wife and I. Perfect for date night.
Our waiter Ryan was phenomenal! Such a great experience with greats drinks and great food!
Food and service was exceptional best lamb chops I’ve ever had!
AMAZING!! The food, service, wine and ambiance of the restaurant was gorgeous, loved everything about it.
Exceptional customer service from the time we arrived and throughout dinner. We will be back😎👍🏻
Great experience! Sofia and the rest of the staff were nice and very accommodating
For one night and for my parents 41st anniversary I decided to splurge and take my parents to a great restaurant.
Oceans Prime was nothing short of amazing. We were treated like locals from the moment we walked in, the staff were amazing and the service by Raven was impeccable. I will always ask for her when I return.
The meals were amazing, we ordered dynamo sushi, crab cake, the ahi tuna, Ora king salmon and the filet mignon for entrees. Everything was amazing.
The desserts which we were treated too by the restaurant; a gesture that truly touched the hearts of my mum and dad were amazing. We ordered the bread pudding and the crème brûlée.
The ambiance of the restaurant was amazing, the lighting and the spacing of the tables made us feel like we were on our own but also surrounded (if that makes sense).
Anyway if you are ever in DC and want a fancy dinner I truly recommend this!
P.s For my English parents; who are the pint of beer and fish and chips at the local pub type of people, to truly appreciate and say the restaurant was amazing speaks more honesty than anything I could ever write!
8/10 Ribeye Steak was perfectly cooked & perfectly seasoned. Lighting was great & seating was comfortable.
Excellent dining experience, great service, and attention to details. The cuisine was amazing!
My husband and I found this to be a wonderful restaurant to celebrate out 28th wedding anniversary .
The dinner was great and our sever was amazing. I love the music.
Great place to dine. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable, food and drinks were excellent. Will definitely recommend to friends
My family and I had the privilege of celebrating my birthday at Ocean Prime and the experience was beyond our expectations. Our waiter Gus was fantastic, the food was amazing and the dining room was breathtaking. Thank you in helping to make my special day a memorable evening.
It was a birthday dinner date and not one single person working or food item we ate disappointed. The service was amazing. The food was out of this world. We had the surf and turf for an appetizer and omg. I have never tasted a surf and turf that was better. The crab cake was phenomenal. I had the lamb chops - to die for. His rib eye was - knock your socks off! All of sides: au gratin, corn, mash, and spinach were finger licking good. The chocolate cake dessert - which they generously comped was the perfect amount of chocolate - not too decadent. Even the bottled water, sprite, and Pinot Grigio was refreshing. I kid you not. Prime usually does not disappoint but this was my first time at Ocean I will DEFINITELY be going back.
We had a great time and the food and service was fantastic
Made reservations for 830. Didn’t get seated until about 900. Waitress could have been way more attentive. Had to send steak back for being overcooked. Cocktails and calamari were great
Broad menu selection. Very professional staff. Overly crowded on a Saturday night at 8pm and consequently VERY NOISY. The dining expands to take over the bar on busy nights so there is nowhere to sit or stand and enjoy a cocktail while waiting for one's reservation time to arrive, which I would expect at this price level. Our entrees were as tasty as they should have been, but served on plates that were at least twice as large as necessary - a bit of ostentation that seemed incongruous with the amount of noise and bustle. Maybe a better destination at a less-busy time...really it just seemed like too many diners in too limited a facility.
Our waiter was amazing! Very attentive and welcoming. Food was spectacular, everyone loved every meal. Can’t wait to return!
My date and I ordered the ribeye, and her steak was very undercooked, and the steak was tough and hard to chew. She sent it back to have steak cooked more and it was still undercooked. Mine was more made to order, but my steak was also very tough and hard to chew. We spoke with manager and she offered us something else off of the menu. We got the Sea Bass and Chicken and we were made whole. It took awhile for drinks to be re-filled, and the bill came out with a charge for an extra drink we did not order or receive. Also the default tip amounts on the new mobile payment machine were double what actual tip's should be for 15, 18, 20 percent. I had to manually put the correct tip which was 50% less than the amount the actual calculated tip should be. The manager was great but the server was less than desired. We also sat in the bar are high top tables, that's all the reservation had available. So not sure if the service would have been better in dining room that day.
Great place, food was perfect.
This was my first time in this establishment and I must say I was impressed. My lamb chops were perfect and the wine was impeccable.
The Food was great. The water was a little to busy never offered to refill my drink.
Very beautiful place and the ambiance is outstanding. I was less impressed with the food. More specifically the lamb chops were not exceptional; good? Yes. However considering the price I was very much expecting EXCELLENT. Glad I went for my birthday? Yes. Will I go again? No.
Superior food and great service. Well worth the lofty price ... especially for special occasions.
Great meal - service was excellent and coped with our requests to split and share dishes… good humored and friendly without being intrusive.
Everything was prepared and presented superbly, tasted wonderful , and they had a special on wine (50% off) that was impossible to resist (bottles less than $100).
I would definitely return, as would my colleagues.
Wonderful date night.
Great ambience, reasonable valet ($20). Bartender was personable and knowledgeable. Our table was comfortable and felt private. Server was attentive without interrupting conversations. Food was excellent, definitely pricy with entrees starting around $50, shareable sides starting at $15. However there were very unique entrees and sides with a great variety. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
Our server, Kyle, was outstanding, as were the bartenders. We had a wonderful time.
The food and service was excellent. The steak was wonderful.
Great food to consume on a Friday night dinner date.
Terrific service of delicious food. This is an excellent restaurant and one of the best in the District.
Celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time! Service was excellent and every need was met to make it a memorable night. Thank you, Ocean Prime staff.
Salad with the brown tinged base of lettuce, overly soaked in dressing - pineapple picante cocktail served weak with half the rim salted - hovering bus staff waiting to clear food the minute there was a pause in eating - super mediocre tasting surf n tied appetizer - for 167 before tip is a cringy one on the value scale. I regularly dine at the Ocean Prime in Troy, Michigan so I assumed all Ocean Primes have same standard. But this location is just okay.
This is the place for seafood in DC. The tables are nicely spaced, so you feel safe and can converse quietly with your dinner companions. In addition to wonderful food, the service is exceptional. The servers make great suggestions and they respond cheerfully to every request.
Our waiter Owen was amazing!! Extremely attentive and his description of the cuisine was nothing less then extraordinary!!! Looking forward to next visit to Ocean Prime!!
Outstanding as always. I must sit in the bar so that I get to see Rebecca. She’s epic and makes the best drinks in town. Staff is awesome! I love Ebony and Manuel too!
Service was non-existent and very rude . Will never go back.
The sushi was great and one of our entrees was good but the teriyaki salmon entree was horrible. It tasted like oil and soy sauce. The salmon also had an unusually strong fishy smell that made it hard to enjoy. The service was okay until I was charged for someone else’s drinks and the time to address it was extremely slow.
Best restaurant I've been to, food was delicious and server was great!
