Went there for dinner. Everything is still great, just stay away from the seafood salad. Not the best salad for the taste or the price. It tasted bland and wasn't chilled and the dressing didn't add any flavor.

Jared was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the menu, offered samples when we couldn't decide. I felt pampered but not smothered by his attention. We had the Prime Roll wrapped in carpaccio beef, followed by the Blackened Snapper and the Grouper with Gnocchi. At Jared's recommendation we chose the Lobster Mashed Potatoes--his description was "creamy dreamy mashed potatoes" and he was... More

While in town visiting Tampa & Clearwater for Spring Training I ate here twice in 3 days! The restaurant is beautiful inside but coming from up north we wanted to sit outside on the really pretty patio- complete with large umbrellas so you don't melt in the FL sun. Food was fantastic both days. I had one of the BEST... More

We went for drinks and nibbles in the bar after a work function. Ocean Prime service is impeccable. The appetisers we had included the best Calamari I have had along with an incredible cheese fondue along with delicious fries with Parmesan and truffle oil. The cocktails were smoking just take a look at the pictures. Ocean Prime delivers on all... More

We stopped by Ocean Prime for lunch. Everything was delicious. The warm sour dough bread. Our server Tyler was the best. He offered wonderful selections. I had the crab melt, my husband had the crispy fish sandwich. We wanted to taste each other's meal so Tyler split it for us. It also came with French onion soup. We even splurged... More

I went there this weekend for my birthday and it was really nice. Such an elegant place, staff (very cute looking people) is very nice and willing to answer any questions. The price for a steak is OUTRAGEOUS...but going to a place like that you already know you're there for the experience, SO enjoy THIS experience!... Food is good, drinks... More

At six on a Tuesday night, the place is already packed and only tables available without reservation are in the bar area and outside patio. As full service is available for both options, I took a table in the bar area. I ordered lobster bisque and sea bass, the most popular sea food menu of this restaurant. The first things... More
