I was not impressed with the food. No one in my party was wowed by it. Have certainly had better. Folks were very nice. Unfortunately my guest of honor became ill after eating there. A wonder as to what happened. I will not eat there again.

It was our anniversary made a reservation for my wife and my kids to have dinner before the show at national Theatre. Advise the server that we needed to leave by seven to be able to get to the show on time. At 7 o’clock still no main meal went and spoke to the manager by the time I got back the meal had been delivered. Finished up miss the first to acts of the show. Because of that I wasn’t able to follow the storyline.

Completely disappointed.

We celebrated our 40th wedding anniversary here. It was everything we hoped it would be. Lovely and elegant surroundings. Our server was knowledgeable and very nice. But the food was Outstanding!!! We are always on the lookout for new and delicious restaurants in the city. Although Ocean Prime is not that new, it was our first visit. But we'll go there every time we are in DC!

Menu was appealing for "Graduation Dinner of 6"! Delicious reviews from all! Waiter & training trailer were very attentive but missed a few small details. Steak sauce was requested at order and had to be asked for and was delivered into meal. A 2nd bottle of red wine was asked for and was presented at end of meal. We refused the 2nd bottle (too late to enjoy) and only one guest opted for an additional glass of red. All in all, very well presented and delicious.

Food was okay. I got a steak and it was good but not great. The service was mediocre. I also ordered a drink (bloody mary), which was horrible. I would not recommend this for the price payed.

This is fine dining at it's best. From start to finish we had a lovely time and the food was excellent. The service was spot on. We will go back again for sure. The only thing that could have made it better would have been a smaller piece of halibut. I could not eat it all and had no way of getting it home. The flavors popped beginning with the popcorn. We had the tuna tartare which was perfect, I loved the crunch. The halibut special was done perfectly with a very nice citrus finish. The truffle mac and cheese was out of this world. A wonderful and delicious time.

The restaurant itself was nice and the service was good. I’ve eaten at a lot of restaurants in this price range, and for what you spend the food was mediocre. General theme was that the dishes were under seasoned.

Went for a business dinner and was pleasantly surprised. From the meal to the service and the ambiance. This place is outstanding and one of the best steak houses I have been to overall. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone!! The server was outstanding as well.

Ocean Prime is a good choice for a business lunch or a more upscale meal with coworkers. The food is very good, and so is the wait staff.

Everything was great until our main course... my wife steak came out cold at first.. then came back over cook well done... she order medium well. How does a steak comes out cold if mines was order medium rare? If anything mine should have been cold.. all the side was nasty with no flavor.. then you run out of desserts on mother's day? Not a good look the amount of money I paid

Great food, like the atmosphere. I would be comfortable dressed up or dressy-casual. All of our appetizers and entrees were delicious and well seasoned. I recommend the Berries and Bubbles cocktail! Cool look and tastes good too! Only issues were the kitchen was slow all around; we had to request the bread when others received theirs quickly. The blueberry lemon cheesecake is very good but we ordered it to go and thankfully checked the order before leaving, as the blueberry sauce was not in the box. Last slight is that we included notes on our reservation re: a birthday and Mother's Day. There was zero acknowledgement of the birthday. In spite of those few issues, I would definitely give Ocean Prime a try again.

Our reservation was for 3pm. We did not get seated till 3.20pm, however we were seated in their private room which was a nice surprise since we didn't ask for it.

However I think being in the private room ended up hurting us because we felt forgotten. It took almost 30mins for the drinks alone to come out (kids drinks that is as everyone else had water). and by 4.30pm, we still had not received our order. It finally came out a few minutes before 5pm.
Overall we felt neglected because the service was very slow and poor but the food was delicious!

Mothers Day Brunch. We were disappointed. Butter dish on table was gross and had to be taken away. Seafood cobb salad had tired greens and almost tasteless seafood. Second glass of wine was turned away after taking more than ten minutes to arrive. Waiter was pleasant and cordial. Desert --peanut chocolate cake--was sinfully rich. But there's not enough to plan returning anytime soon.

The food was fabulous and the service was good. Our server duo seemed to be rather busy, almost as if they were handling more tables than normal. Nothing bad to say about the service, but it fell slightly short of impeccable. Great cocktails, great wine selection and great food.

What an extraordinary meal! Specialty cocktails, fabulous appetizers (especially the goat cheese ravioli and the tuna on avocado), amazing seafood (LOVED the brined, tender swordfish!), and dessert–best of all–a chocolate peanut butter pie. We had a fabulous time. Executive Chef Jason Shelley and his team do an amazing job. We'll be back!
