We went for restaurant week, and it was definitely one of the best offerings for restaurant week. We really appreciated that the restaurant took standard items from their menu for entree options and did not shrink the size or skimp on quality (as many RW options do). The filet was perfectly cooked, and not the least bit chewy. My boyfriend enjoyed the scallops. The desserts were phenomenal and service was great. The server took time to tell us about the various offerings the restaurant has which we appreciated. We will definitely be back!

I parked valet! Paid $12 plus tipped 3 just when it was time to leave waited 20 mins for my keys just to find out they left my keys in the ignition and left for the night instead of turning them in to the restaurant. Once I informed the manager he was nonchalant about as if it didn’t matter.

Excellent food and very attentive service. Beautifully decorated interior with lots of booth seating. Tables are not on top of one another, so you can talk at your table without hearing other tables (or being heard by them). A very nice place to go and conveniently located near the White House and Metro Center's metro stop.

Everything we had was amazing! Will definitely be back very soon. Awesome experience for restaurant week. Great service despite that they forget our first course and charging us for an extra dessert. Have definitely recommended this restaurant to at least 5 people since going. Look forward to returning soon!

Lobster bisque was velvety and flavorful. Wedge salad was very good and not half a head of lettuce - it was a manageable portion. The lobster tails were cooked perfectly and the asparagus still had some crunch. My husband’s king crab legs were prepared well and also a good portion. Nice wine selection.

Housekeeping note for mgmnt: if a party of two is seated at a table for four, please remove the extra place settings ASAP.

I read the reviews and ignored them because a friend recommended the place. What I can say is we sat at the bar which was about 75% full and the younger woman bartender was bad. She messed up a few things and was without question the most forgetful service person I've ever had. I ordered and beer and ten minutes later someone else takes my order because she totally forgot and went off to doing something else.

Food doesn’t match price point, I expect bit better. Service is a bit inconsistent- staff is very nice and professional, but they miss out on some basic protocol areas (I.e., bringing dishes at same time, reaching over you) that create moments of awkwardness or would take then to the level I think they strive to be.

This was my first time at Ocean Prime and I really enjoyed it. Our server was super knowledgable about all of the menu items which was impressive. Our food was great. The only thing that kind of rubbed me the wrong way was that the hostesses seemed be dressed down a little too much for my taste. I understand that they want to be comfortable (especially on their feet) but their outfits seemed like they were a bit casual. The servers attire was more formal than the hostesses. Other than that, no complaints. Great dining experience!

While our meal was amazing. The ambiance was a bit lackluster. Children in the bar area. Loud , rude and overly drunk folks and another person face timing. Our waitress took a while before taking our order -- she did make up for it.
Would we return - not sure as of yet. Almost convinced that this is what you should expect when visiting chain type restaurants.
