I enjoyed my server Owen! He’s the best. Food was bland
Jamela was awesome and very attentive. She made our anniversary so special with food suggestions and wine accompaniments and took detail in my food allergy. A little nosy as we were near a baby, otherwise great overall.
Amazing. Edwin was a great server!
Lobster Mac n Cheese lacks the taste of competitors such as Ruth’s Chris. Overall great restaurant.
Phenomenal food and excellent service. Nice vibe and ambiance inside restaurant.
My girlfriend and I were celebrating our anniversary and had the best time at this restaurant. Emmanuel is one of the best waiters and I highly recommend him for anyone!
The food is impeccable!
I really enjoyed my birthday dinner!! Food & atmosphere was amazing!!
Hohum- what to say. We should’ve stuck with tried and true Trabocch restaurant, but thought we would give Ocean Prime a whirl.
Anniversary dinner, reservation made a week ahead.
Lackluster greeting from the hostess, no mention of the occasion- we didn’t want anything other than an effort for a special evening out.. her phone call was evidently more important to her than the guests; we had requested a window when the reservation was initially made - so...we were sat in an aisle steps away from the hostess stand and the service station. This is on a Sunday night at 8:30- restaurant is not packed, but moderately busy.
We received our choice of premium waters and a bread basket within minutes.. our waiter Steven didn’t arrive until we were done with the bread (ie 25-30 min after we were seated). Gave him our cocktail and appetizer order upon his arrival. Appetizer set up arrived before our cocktails, cocktails arrived and the appetizers arrived 30 seconds later. (Not exactly how things should go at an establishment claiming such stature- ask any seasoned waiter.)
Appetizers were ho-hum, nothing to write home about other than they both were over sauced. (Crab cake and Spicy Tuna Roll)
French onion soup- phenomenal!
What blew us away was our waiter Steven. I requested a glass of Duoro to accompany the entree, he comes back 10 minutes later to announce they do not have it and he promptly walks away without recommending something else or asking if I want something else... he went and chatted up a table steps away... my husband and I are discussing what transpired and another waiter, Owen, steps in. Owen saved the night. Unlikely we will return ever or recommend the place.
Joe’s and Eddie V’s are 20 not he’s above on service and food if you are seeking a steakhouse.
Owen- kudos and thank you!
One of the best restaurants experiences I ever had from service to food.
Food was good.
A beautiful place to dine for a special occasion or just to treat yourself. That staff was very nice. The food was good.
The experience was great! Good food and service. Neat and clean atmosphere.
Fantastic service and one of the best Steaks I’ve had in a while.
The service by the wait staff was great. There was just enough attention to provide service but yet not too much to interrupt our evening and conversation. Enjoyed the food and the ambience.
The ambiance was very nice, the food was very well prepared and the waiter did an amazing job of explaining in detail every item on the menu. He made the experience much more pleasant.
Enjoyed our dinner!
Had an awesome time to celebrate my moms birthday.
I celebrated my birthday at Ocean Prime. The food was incredible and service was superb.
This visit to Ocean Prime was outstanding. Everything, from service and popcorn to dessert was perfect.
Richard, our waiter, made our entire party feel welcomed from the start. He was also attentive and perfectly communicative.
The popcorn and pretzels that are served upon seating were yummy. But, that was only a set up for all that was to come. We had the calamari, which was outstanding, as was the caesar salad (lol!). Several people ordered the lamb, one steak, and one snapper. It was all perfect in the restaurant, and was reported to have been just as good the next day. The butter cake was like a perfectly moist pound cake, which was the perfect icing on top of the evening. Can't forget the drinks, which were also all delicious. The table favorite was the tequila cocktail!
Thank you for this experience, we are looking forward to many more visits to Ocean Prime (hopefully with Richard!).
If I could give the place 10 stars I would. Everything was above standard. Excellent experience. Our server Edwin was amazing. The host and managers were wonderful.
Ocean Prime rarely disappoints! The service was great!
No longer an upscale, quiet atmosphere.
Food and service were excellent! Valet parking right by the door was also well appreciated.
Everything was amazing!
Beautiful restaurant with a great atmosphere and delish, top of the line food, pricey but we will be talking about our food for a long time so it was worth it!
Amazing food, service and drinks.
It was my boyfriend’s birthday. We had a great time. The waitress was excellent and made great recommendations. The food was timely and delicious. Definitely will be going back.
Everyone there seem to be on a date
Such a sophisticated restaurant with amazing food.
I celebrated my birthday here with 5 friends. I am so happy I chose this place. Everything was perfect. The foods taste amazing, the service is outstanding, the environment is beautiful. The menu is reasonably priced and the drinks are great. I recommend trying the crab stuffed lobster tail and the bacon creamed spinach. It’s absolutely yummy! FYI: If it’s your birthday you will get a free birthday dessert. You can also bring your own cake and they will slice it for a small fee.
The atmosphere, service and food were all excellent!
Steven was excellent had a great experience!
Great food, service and atmosphere
The experience was absolutely phenomenal. Emmanuel was a great server, he went above and beyond.
Great atmosphere, service and food. I will definitely be back!
Always a great dining experience.. would like communication regarding Happy Hour, new menu etc .
Food and service was great. Enjoyed it so much went twice in a row
