Ocean Prime is always a delight and my birthday lunch with a friend was no exception. The wait service presented by our server, Warren, was cheerful, friendly and impeccable. We each had salad with grilled fish; the tuna was perfectly cooked and the blackened salmon was delicious and done just right. We also had a great table (#13) that gave combined privacy with a bit of cozy.

We did the $55 Sunday course list option, the food was very good. Be prepared to open your wallet though. The alcohol was pretty expensive, a glass of white was $11 even though the bottle retails for $15. I’d definitely go back, but maybe save this spot for special occasions.

Had a wonderful time! Our Waiter Pat was the best! My husband has food allergies and he made sure to check everything we ordered to make sure there were no issues. Thank you Ocean Prime for making my husband’s birthday special!!!

Second time visiting. We were impressed so much during our first visit in August 2017 that we came back in February 2018. We were extremely dissatisfied during our second visit. So much so that we will never come back. I don't know what changed between our visits. Wish we would have had the same experience we had the first time.

I went here to celebrate getting my Master Degree and to my surprise that gave us complimentary champagne! The host and the servers were great. The food was amazing! It met my expectations and more. I had my son with me and he loved the Parmesan truffle fries. He’s 11, but I saw a younger kid also. It’s kid friendly. The lobster mashed pototates are too die for! Overall, everyone enjoyed themselves.

Food was good no wow factor but very good, services at the bar wasn't that great due it being 4pm bartenders was busy stocking and prepping for customers like me. I had to asked for silverware and a napkin once my apps arrived. I am sure this doesn't normally happen because of the reaction from my food runner. He try to get the bartender attention but she was busy closing out tills. I am making you aware of this because you ask for my feedback I will never complain I would just return to the establishment again. In this case I would definitely bring my wife back again to give you guys another opportunity. Thanks again for allowing us to share our anniversary with you guys!

My date and I dined at Ocean Prime for Valentine’s Day. Everything about the restaurant was amazing. The receptionist could’ve been a little friendlier but we were a bit late so maybe that was why. Our waiter was very attentive and offered great suggestion. I ordered the the berries and bubbles cocktail which was so delicious! I also ordered the 6oz filet mignon Oscar style with a twice baked potato and it was very good. My date ordered the lobster tails with the lobster mashed potatoes and he enjoyed that as well. I would definitely go back and recommend it to my family and friends.

Lovely restaurant. Really enjoyed the dragon roll appetizer..enough to share. My blackened snapper had just the right amount of seasoning. My husband said the steak he had was so tender he could cut it with a fork. Recommend this restaurant for a special occasion.

The ambiance was spectacular and the staffing went above and beyond to cater to our needs. The noise level of the crowd was normal. My lovely date and I had the berries and bubbles which was a nice drink but to me a little sweet. The food we had was definitely delicious. The salmon and Chilean sea bass came out just right. For all that we experienced it was well worth the price. This restaurant gets my approval and look forward to going there again soon.
