My alltime favorite place

I get to pretend I am a chic fashionista, get dressed up with skinny jeans, pumps, my best handbag and jewelry, and see the pretty people. Feelin good walking in to their oh-so-chic bar. The drinks are expensive, but worth it. They use fresh juices, signature ingredients, and make smokin martinis... read more

Nice restaurant with big windows and serene view of a pond. Food is generally quite good, fish, seafood , but also steak. Good lunch entree salads and good cocktails. I consider it one of the best in Tampa, but isn't not cheap.

Yes, it's a beautiful atmosphere, from the pond view through a wall of windows, to the crisp table linens and well dressed servers, Ocean Prime looks lovely. Our server was polite, but noticeably fell silent when he learned we weren't ordering entrees. (We still tipped 20% on our $102 check). Here's why it seems overpriced - our party of 2... More

We met a friend here from out hometown for dinner on our visit to the Clearwater area. We wanted to sit outside but it had rained earlier and it was very wet and muggy. We were seated in the bar area. The cocktails were good. We ordered one of their specialty salads and I ordered Arrancini (which you don't see... More

This is one of the best dining experiences I have had in years. First off the service was professional and top notch. Friendly with just the right amount of attention without being overbearing. Spot on with recommendations and answers to questions. Jared was our server and he was excellent. The recognized that it was our 25th wedding anniversary and quickly... More

Overall, very disappointed by our experience at Ocean Prime last Saturday night. Our party of four was put in a separate room in a corner table where there was not a lot of room. The champagne and wine I selected was the only highlight of the evening. The food I thought was not that special, the OP salad was OK,... More

Ocean Prime has one of the most unique atmospheres in Tampa and you definitely don't want to miss it! OP is a high end, very classy and modern restaurant where you can come for a romantic date night, girl's night out, family or work holiday group or business meeting. This is one of those places you cannot pass up!

Had an incredible birthday dinner last night at OP Tampa. Shrimp cocktail and oysters for starters. Crab cakes and filet for dinner. Bottle of bubbles with some cocktails and wine etc. Service was spot on. Josh was our server, he was outstanding. Gave us the perfect amount of time between courses. Didn't rush at all, kept his distance but still... More
