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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
