Taking a break from the bipolar insanity of weather systems affecting my beloved Windy City, my wife and I recently returned from a vacation to visit my family in Florida. Sunshine and surf aside, it offered a much desired opportunity for a change of plate scenery, if you know what I mean. It being that our wedding anniversary fell the... More

During a "guy's" weekend spent watching Spring Baseball, we went to Ocean Prime for dinner. It was over priced for the quality and preparation of the meals we had. The food was very good, but not excellent. The view of the Bay was nice but not great. We were a bit disappointed largely due to the price we paid for... More

Although we did not make a reservation, we were able to get a table outside. Our waiter made excellent recommendations and was very friendly. The flour manager came by to make sure we were well taken care of. The ahi tuna tartare was an excellent appetizer and big enough to have for dinner.

We went on a Saturday around 6pm. We are seated right away near the windows looking out at the side pond. We sat outside in the past. I am not sure if the "alligator" warning signs are still there. One of my guests wanted to start with a glass of root beer, but that was the one drink not on... More

Picked this as likely to be a very good place for lunch close to the airport and mall. Lucked out. Overall excellence slightly marred by failure to clear nearby tables, some long vacated and poor wifi. But the service and food were excellent. We tried devilled eggs and French onion soup for appetisers - both excellent. Then we had a... More

Well, naturally, anytime someone else pays for a steak dinner, it's going to be one of the best meals you've had. Met a work associate here for dinner on a Wednesday night. It's a nice, classy restaurant with a patio bar and it looked like some tables out there, too, though I didn't step outside. We had 8:30 reservations, but... More

This restaurant was so good, I had to go back the next night for a repeat performance. I didn't know what to expect my first time at the Ocean Prime. Reservations were challenging because they were busy. We did have to wait at the bar about 10-15 minutes beyond our reservation but the staff and management were very apologetic about... More

I had dinner here recently with business associates. It was a Tuesday night and we had a reservation although we probably did not need one. We arrived and used the Valet service. The drivers were attentive and helpful. The hostess graciously allowed us to change tables as it was a bit noisy near the bar and serving areas. Our table... More

I had one of the cocktails, by the way, all the juices used for the mixes are freshly squeezed for each drink. Well of course, I Wanted more! The appetizers where hard to choose from but we decided on the Crab Cakes. They were the best ever and you'll definitely drool until your next bite, as it will surely leave... More
