Ocean Prime - Washington D.C.

Everything was great, there’s nothing I would change
Excellent customer service. Place was a bit noisy but not overbearing. Food was as expected - my medium rare filet was cooked to perfection
Excellent food, excellent ambiance for a date night. The waitstaff was attentive and happy and the berry bubbles drink was fantastic. The decor was opulent, matching the filet I had. While a bit on the pricey side, it is worth every penny.
Awesome deal for restaurant week!
My family has visited Ocean Prime in Dallas, Texas and in DC several times. We had the unfortunate experience to visit this restaurant on Friday during restaurant week. Where shall I begin, firstly we had to wait over 20 minutes for our reserved seating time. We were only seated after I spoke to them a total of 3 times letting them know that my Mother, who has a cane, was standing the entire time (they gave us seating in the bar area, where there are high seats).
Secondly, the service, which normally is excellent was far below the standard that we’ve received in the past. The server was inattentive. One guest ordered lamb, we were told, oh we are out of lamb. I said well that’s the first thing that you should start with, letting us know what is not available and any specials, mind you it was only 7:50pm (out of lamb already????).
He took our drink order, came back with the drinks, and then we placed our entire order. I had to ASK if bread was coming, the bread arrived AFTER our side dish (at this point we’ve been in the restaurant at total of about 40 minutes).
OH, I forgot, instead of having my Mom sit in the booth, we were asked if we wanted a chair placed at the table, we said yes. The chair was placed, WITHOUT ANY SERVING UTENTILS ON THE TABLE.
I moved the entire serving utentils, plates, etc. all the while our SERVER noticed and didn’t come over nor did he attempt to assist.
After receiving our food, the server never came back to ask if we wanted additional drinks. I had to make eye contact with him to get him to come over, we sat after finishing dinner, again I HAD to make eye contact and then I ASKED for the dessert menus.
Just terrible service all around. I will NEVER return during restaurant week and am contemplating never returning period, unless we are in Dallas.
The service was impeccable. The ambiance was moody and romantic. Very nice place for date or special occasion. The deviled eggs,m and surf and turf appetizers were so good. The scallops in the surf and turf appetizer were cooked to perfection. For my entree I had the Teriyaki Salmon. The portion of fish was good, my only complaint is that I wish I had more of the sticky rice. Everything was good, I cannot wait to return!
My boyfriend and I were at Ocean Prime tonight to celebrate our anniversary. Our server, Laura, went above and beyond to make sure we had a special experience. She gave us anniversary champagne, an incredible suggestion for appetizers, a three-course restaurant week meal AND a tray of desserts to share. This is one of the best dining experiences we’ve ever had! Highly recommend going here for an anniversary. Make sure to ask for Laura.
Joined his wonderful place on a Thursday evening, the decor was very appealing and was greeted by the lovely hostess. Janelle was our server and she was amazing! I can be very indecisive and she made my night so much easier. She recommended a excellent bottle of white wine for the table. We also ordered from the restaurant week menu and there were some amazing dishes on there. Overall, I enjoyed the service, food, and the atmosphere. Definitely plan on returning and hope that Janelle is our server again!
Very slow service, cold food.
The service provider was friendly, had a captivating voice, and was attentive to providing excellent service.
This was my first time dining at Ocean Prime and I was well pleased. The scallops were cooked to perfection and the service was impeccable. I will definitely dine there again.
The ambience was comforting. The waiter Emmanuel was inviting and informative. Both I and my colleague enjoyed the waiter suggestions based on his ability to give a vivid description.
Delicious food--super tender steak, delectable risotto & caesar salad, great desserts, even the coffee is great! Excellent, courteous and attentive service. Lovely decor. Love this place!
Great restaurant and Victor was awesome!! I’m the GM of a restaurant in Columbia, SC, and I plan to share my experience with my staff and encourage them to offer the same level of service as Victor did. It was truly a treat to sit down and enjoy a perfect meal with wonderful suggestions and perfectly timed courses. The prime sushi roll, the ny strip and Gouda tots were delicious!!
It was first time in D.C. and I did my research and heard Ocean prime was one of many great restaurants and i just had to come for my 28th birthday . I loved everything from the bathroom being cleaned to the food .
Had a great meal and service at Ocean Prime. My guests commented that it was some of the best food they’ve had. Special thanks to Damany and Shuhshyruh (not sure about the spelling, sorry) for their service and reccomendations. Looking forward to coming back.
Good appetizer. Surf and turf was good but far from the best I’ve had. I would recommend
Great food! Would have been 5 stars if the appetizers were served hot, they were lukewarm. Service was great, they checked on us and made an item that wasn’t on the menu. Great value as well, at other restaurants we would have paid about $100-$150 more. Will go back multiple times!
The service and food were impeccable. Our server was very knowledgeable and friendly. We went on a Sunday without even knowing of their Sunday special but got to take advantage of their price fix menu and half off wine. Everything was so good, and the butter cake was life changing. Highly recommend!!!
luved it again - will keep coming back
the bisque and sea bass were excellent
The food is great and the ambience is amazing. I recommend the NY STRIP with creamed spinach and corn.
The shrimp cocktail and sushi was phenomenal.
Great restaurant! The food is delicious! I've yet to have a bad experience there.
We've had ups and downs w/ Ocean Prime and this one was a hit. Perfectly cooked steak, exceptional cocktails, attentive service that wasn't overbearing, fantastic bread (sourdough & pretzel) and despite being a steak and seafood house, they cover the veg options well for my vegetarian wife. We're quasi regulars and our visit Saturday night was the reminder of why we keep coming back.....
Great food! Service was awesome! Our server was awesome!
Birthday Dinner, server/trainer was amazing!
Thank you. Ocean Prime is my favorite restaurant. Your service is always great.
Excellent food and nice environment. Extremely pricy. Be prepare to pay through the roof.
I dine at OP frequently - business lunches and dinners as well as personal occasions. There is not a better restaurant in DC that offers a quiet, comfortable atmosphere with exceptionally good service and food. The private dining rooms are a major plus for medium-large parties.
Had a wonderful meal while in town for business.
Very nice place
Amber was awesome and the food and drinks were tasty.
It was my 2nd visit to Ocean Prime. It was my daughter's birthday so I thought it would be a wonderful place to celebrate the occasion. They did not disappoint! The service was outstanding and the food was very good. Everyone had such a good time. Can't wait to go again!
The server was horrible. I asked for lounge seating to take advantage of the happy hour specials. It took her approximately 15 minutes to help us and during our dining experience she would walk past without making eye contact. She failed to follow instructions and forgot our requests. Every encounter with the server was an extreme delay even closing out or tab.
Seafood and steak choices were excellent! Quiet and comfortable atmosphere. Large wine menu.
Service personnel too clingy
We were visiting DC with our Nieces & booked a reservation so they could enjoy one of our favorite restaurants. The food, wine & desserts were awesome. We had the carrot cake & mango sorbet & they were outstanding. Great service as well.
Nice quiet place to eat and all that I order was delicious.
We had a wonderful waitress, I highly recommend...
Promised 45 minute business lunch took an hour and a half
Service was slow - had to ask for bread and water and had to ask for the drink that we had ordered multiple times -
