Great food and service

We had reservations for our anniversary. We were greeted by a friendly hostess with a complimentary glass of champaign. Dinner war served by very attentive staff and the food was top notch. A little pricy but worth it.

It's always exciting as we are lead to our table to Ocean Prime. We kow we're in for a treat. The menu is varied, interesting and challenging, For me, scanning the pages kicks the imagination into gear. The were four of us for dinner and as it happened we ordered from across the menu; grouper for two, scallops for my... More

My friend's birthday was last night and she wanted to celebrate at this restaurant. I have been here twice and find nothing outstanding about it in any way. We started off the evening on a sour note as we sat. There was a large crowded table directly behind us that was overly loud and obnoxious from the very beginning. We... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Tampa! Every visit the food is consistently excellent, service great and ambiance marvelous! We celebrate my birthday there almost every year (along with anything else we can think of to celebrate!!). The Ahi Tuna appetizer is the best anywhere in the world.....and the Scallops are awesome! Haven't had a bad dish on the menu!

I love this place!!! Either for a casual drink with friends or a full menu dinner, Ocean Prime is the best. The bar area can get crowded and loud but if it's too much for you then u might want to try the outside area.

This is a great setting for a nice afterwork setting for a date with you spouse, a girls night out, or a work function. It's no longer on the menu, but they do still offer the Strawberry Smash, a personal favorite. The tuna tartar, beef carpaccio, and the caesar salad are all wonderful dinner/appetizer options. Another favorite is the calamari.

Not only was the food incredible here (tuna tartare!! WOW)...but they treated us like we were their best regular customers. I was on vacation with my sisters, celebrating a milestone birthday so we chose this place, never having been before. Wonderful experience. I noted in the reservation that we were celebrating and they went out of their way to make... More

Noted in reservation that it was for my wife's birthday and the table location, servers and dessert all reflected their attention to this note. Servers were especially top-notch; friendly, informative and VERY timely. All of the food was delicious, from the appetizers, to the entrees, to the dessert. Best cup of coffee I've had in many years. Excellent live piano... More

Eat at the piano. Share a bottle of wine. Share a salad. Share a medium rare filet. Share the most awesome Sea Bass you will ever have. Share some fresh berries. Have another drink. Leave a $20 for the Piano Man. Perfect.
