    Our server David did an absolutely outstanding job throughout the meal. It was our first time visiting Ocean Prime and we were celebrating a special occasion and he went out of his way to make it special. The calamari was delicious and the steaks were cooked to perfection. My favorite part of the dinner was the jalapeño au gratin. Amazing. Then we got the butter cake and the creme brûlée which were both incredible. Overall, an amazing evening.

    4th time dining at this location normally a great experience. I had a drink spilled on me by the waitress. I was given shout wipes and napkins but basically had to sit in A/C with a wet dress. I was not offered a new drink and at that point didn’t even want to continue to dine in. I asked for the meal to go immediately after it came out. Not only was I not offered a new drink but I was charged for the drink I did not continue to drink and that was spilled on me. I had to ask for it to be removed off of the check. Accidents happen but I have been taken care of with other establishments. I’m a frequent diner at Eddie V’s and I know for a fact that situation would have been handled differently. I had to cancel my plans after the dinner as well due to my dress being stained. Overall was not happy with how I was taken cere of and will not be dining at this location.

    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 juicy. The garlic mashed potatoes were 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

    Great food. Phenomenal service. The dry-ice drinks were an especially nice touch. Expensive, but nothing unexpected for a steak house. Would recommend.
