We came here for my mom’s 66th Birthday and it was amazing! Everyone was really nice and helped her tremendously! The food was perfect! We had a variety of items off of the menu! Filet mignon was cooked PERFECT! If you do decide to dine order the 10 layer carrot cake for desert! You will NOT regret it!

If you’re seeking an up-scale dining experience, Ocean Prime is very highly recommended. We were able to make reservations on short notice and the service was excellent from the moment we entered through our departure. The wait staff was excellent and attentive. The food was well prepared, well presented, and flavorful. This was our first visit and we are already planning the next of what will be many more.

It was our anniversary and I was extremely disappointed with the food and service. Our server was “nice” but rarely came to check on us. The Busser was at our table more than the actual server. Food was very disappointing. I was excited to come eat here and the food quality was extremely poor for the amount of money it cost to eat there. I will not be back.

Food was excellent. Service was subpar. I think will our table was forgotten. Multiple tables around us with same server turned over two- three times while we were there. And they had the ac on high. Cold air blowing on is the entire meal. Disappointing for an expensive meal

As Ocean Prime is one of our favorite restaurants we made a reservation for New Years Eve. Our server, Daniel, gave us an impressive run down of the specials & was personal & attentive throughout our stay. A great experience from the hostess stand, the bread/water service & Daniel. Oh, did I mention the Berries N’ Bubbles? All 5 Stars!

This was my first visit to this restaurant and it will be my last. While my soup and salad was good, my entree was a 0/10. I ordered the lamp chops and was completely disappointed. They were dry and lacked taste. For such an upscale place I expected way more. The waitress, Janelle, was rude and I felt rushed the entire evening. The only highlight was the young man who brought out our food and the nice young lady who brought our drinks. I wished she would have been our waitress, her attitude was so friendly and welcoming. Overall experience 4/10; would not recommend.

I have been to Ocean Prime many times and was very excited to have dinner there last night with my best friend who I have not seen since the pandemic. When we arrived, we were seated in a both where we thought there would be a lot of traffic, so we asked to be moved and our waiter politely obliged us. He was very knowledgeable of the menu and made several recommendations. We started with cocktails and appetizer's which were fine, and then ordered our entrée. However, when our entrees came out, my friend's sea bass was piping hot and my snapper was luke warm at best (I do not like cold food!). I imagine it must have been setting while waiting on the sea bass. After waiting 10 minutes for our waiter to come back and inquire about the entree's, we had to get another waiter to find him. He show's up 10 minutes later and I tell him my entree is not hot. By this time, my friend had almost completed her dinner, so there was no need for me to ask for a replacement although I was starving and angry!!! He apologizes and walks away. Now my friend is saying - why didn't he ask a manager to come see us, why didn't he offer complimentary dessert? All good questions for which I had no answer. We ordered dessert, and left our waiter a 20% tip which he did not deserve. I was really disappointed because I have never had a bad meal or poor service here.
