    Exemplary service, expertly executed with carefully crafted dishes. We sampled truffled deviled eggs, Point Judith calamari with crab cakes and sea bass as entrees. Everything was top notch. This was a very good experience.

    Amazing meal here on a holiday weekend. Plenty of fish selections and the snapper was tasty. The apps and sides are delicious and while the restaurant is not cheap, it is well worth it. The service was outstanding! Jessica was attentive and kind and a complete sweetheart. Be sure to ask for her and her warm smile to start will make for a great evening of dining.

    I went to Ocean Prime to celebrate my 34th birthday because this is my favorite restaurant. They never disappoint. The hospitality, ambiance, and quality of the food is exquisite. My server was Jessica and she made sure my birthday was lovely from the presentation of the drinks, describing all the amazing specials which I happened to order, down to the dessert! I love the culture here. I can’t wait to come back for another great experience. I ordered the vegetarian sushi, crab crusted halibut, west coast oysters, and ended with the ever so yummy warm butter cake. I even have a new favorite drink besides berries and bubbles. Jessicas favorite The Black Orchid is now mine. The orchid frozen in the ice was a nice touch. Thank you Ocean Prime Staff for making this birthday ever so memorable! This was my parents first time as I always rave and ask them to try it. They finally did and see why yall are my #1 go to.

    Disappointed in the extremely slow service. It took 10+ min before someone stopped by to take drink orders and 2 hours for some raw bar items and crab cakes. Then we were told they were closed and we couldn’t get dessert or coffee.

    The crab stuffed Halibut special was excellent! Our server was excellent as well, pardon for not remembering his name, young African American gentlemen. The GM, Alex, did stop by our table. He was very friendly. We discussed the Tampa location and the differences in ambiance between locations. Of course how can you not end the evening with the butter cake!

    We celebrated our 5 year anniversary here all the way from Pittsburgh and let me tell you, Ocean Prime did not disappoint. It was well worth the start of our road trip to DC. Everyone who came to our table went above and beyond. I ordered the teriyaki salmon and it was scrumptious! When I told the waiter that it was our anniversary, they made sure it was going to be a night to remember. Highly recommend this place.

    I decided to have dinner at the bar since I was traveling alone for a conference. The bartender Chris and all of the other staff were exceptional and very attentive. I did not feel at all like I was dining alone. I could tell though if I had preferred very little interaction they would have accommodated that as well.

    As always the food never disappoints! On this visit the service was awesome. The bus boy constantly kept water glasses full was quick with another truffle popcorn. The hit was Jessica, our server. She immediately sensed that we were out to enjoy our anniversary dinner and, while quick with recommendations and explanations, did not push for our order. She built a quick relationship with my wife and i and was terrific in time our dinners and being a wonderful hostess for the dinner. Jessica rocks and i look forward to seeing her next time we’re in DC!!!

    Came to celebrate Father’s Day with my family. My dad loved it!!! This is a fave of mine, so I knew I’d be happy, but he’s so afraid of spending money. It was worth every penny we spent and he approved of the day. I’ve never seen anyone do math so quickly in their head, but he hasn’t stopped talking about “His Day!”

    My first time dining at Ocean Prime and I was very impressed. The service was professional on point and unobtrusive while still being engaging and having personality. No details were missed from beginning to end. The food was excellent and properly timed between courses. Not sure why it took so long to get here but highly recommended.

    The food was good. Scallops were brilliant. Sushi rolls were also very good. The shellfish cobb salad was marginal. Bonus for bringing extra stuff with the loaded baked potato. Our waiter was overly scripted and precocious which I found annoying.

    Our waitress Jessica was amazing and well versed. She was quick to let us know, "this is fine dining", the real kind and she did not lie. I have food allergies so I am used to going to " upscale restaurants" and not being able to eat. At Ocean Prime, the head chef came out with his down to earth welcoming personality and ensured me that I was safe in his hands. The food was delicious, flavorful and tailored to our requests. Lastly the atmosphere was like no other. Diverse and inclusive. From the seat placement, to the music even the staff. 5 stars all around. I'm so glad our 12 year daughter chose this restaurant as a pre-fathers day surprise for her dad. We will definitely take the hour and a half drive to visit again. Thanks for helping us bring Father's day season in right.
