The food and service were spectacular. I loved that they had shields on the back of everywhere your sitting, there definitely ready for the pandemic.

Last night, we had our 1st in-dining experience since early March. We were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary! Although it takes “a minute” to get used to wearing a mask inside the restaurant....it MUST be worn ... especially when you choose an in-dining experience ~ loved scanning a card so the menu pops up on your mobile device✅🔥, ordering your culinary selections, while you have quiet conversation with each other. Once our exquisite food and cocktails were served, our servers maintained the perfect balance and distance impeccably. #Suggestion: choose your restaurant wisely, research protocols in advance, book an early reservation, #WearYourMask, as appropriate. Celebrate and then roll out! Not likely to return to in-dining regularly... but it was nice to do it once. We chose a place that made for a quick drive home. Thanks, #OceanPrimeDC

Just excellent. If we lived in DC it would be a regular go to restaurant. The service was exceptional. The three meals were fantastic.

Service was very slow but the food was high quality. I received my steak medium initially and had to return it when I ordered it Pittsburgh style. Second steak was fantastic.

Service was blah. Waitress was odd and not very inviting. Food was pretty good, but it’s what you would expect at the price point, nothing phenomenal. Overall experience was good but for the price tag could’ve been better.

We came here for a romantic dinner last weekend and had a really great experience. The decor and ambiance is consistent with other upscale steakhouses and restaurants in the area.

We enjoyed the crab legs to start. They were great - well cooked and chilled (but not overly chilled) and served with drawn butter (without even asking, the server brought separate butter for each of us -- he was great but more on that later). They were prcvracked and easy to eat. For our entrees she got the 10pz filet and I had the Miso Cod. The filet was on par with any of the top steakhouses but the Cod was amazing. Light and flakey with delicious sesame soy glaze.

The thing that really set Ocean Prime apart was the service. Our server was very knowledgeable and helped us select from the many great options. He knew about wine but also was more than willing to bring the sommolier if necessary. At the end of the night he happily poured the remaining wine out of the decanter back into the bottle, sealed it, and sent it with us on our way.

Went to Ocean Prime for dinner with my girlfriend. The interior of the restaurant was very nice and the servers were very attentive. My girlfriend had the Bubbles and Berry cocktail and said it was one of the best drinks she ever had. I ordered the lobster bisque, which was excellent with large chunks of lobster. I also ordered the Surf and Turf. It was also excellent. My girlfriend ordered the filet mignon and said it was outstanding. When it came time for dessert, we ordered the 10 layer carrot cake. It was outstanding. My girlfriend is lactose intolerant and we asked for a non-diary creamer for her coffee. The general manager, Alex Schultz, came by the table and said they did not have non-diary creamer in the restaurant. He said there was a CVS store down the street and he would be happy to go and get her non-diary creamer or soy milk. We were discussing whether to actually ask him to go, when he came back to the table and said he went to the CVS and they didn't have soy milk, but had non-diary creamer and brought it to the table. This was service above and beyond what was required. Fantastic experience. My girlfriend said this is her new favorite restaurant.

Wonderful evening. She ordered off the Theater Menu and loved it. I ordered the grouper and found it outstanding. We shared the JALAPEÑO AU GRATIN and roasted brussel sprouts. Wonderful. We also enjoyed the dynamite roll. Ended the evening on a butter cake and coffee. Overall a wonderful place. Our server (William) started off wonderfully, but faded in the stretch as the restaurant got busier, but Owen pitched in and helped to end the evening on a better note

Was suppose to be a nice anniversary dinner but due to service the experience was less than pleasing. I don’t want to waste time to give details cause I don’t want to be that type of reviewer but in short when we order food a certain way we would hope the server and cook will make sure it was that way especially if guest are allergic or sensitive to ingredients. Our server got multiple items wrong and we had to ask for management intervention. They made made all attempts to make it up to us which they should have since it was suppose to be an anniversary dinner. But unfortunately what happened can’t be erased. Food was good but would’ve been great if it came right in reasonable time. Ambience is great and service minus our experience should not have been an issue. Overall just okay. Disappointing for great reviews. I wanted to give one.

At the end of the night, I can say that I have no complaints. At first, I was disappointed because I asked for a special experience being that I reserved for my anniversary. When we got there, we were seated regularly as any other customer, so I didn’t think that they got any of the info that I’d sent. I was just being impatient.....

The food was great, the servers were exceptional and we even got a visit from a manager, Diamond, acknowledging our special day and also a sweet anniversary treat on the house. They made me look good, Ana I’m grateful for the experience.

I had the crab legs. They didn’t seem freshly prepared. Almost like they’d been sitting for sometime.
