Great food, service, and view

My friend and I decided to splurge for lunch on a recent business trip to Tampa. We were so happy we did! I had a glass of Cakebread Chardonnay and the grouper & lobster with house made gnocchi. It was delightful. The service was great (we were alone on the patio for quite some time) and our... read more

Everything about this restaurant was well managed. To say the staff is well trained is an understatement. Knowledgeable, friendly and prompt. Top that off with excellent sea food and you have a winner. First rate entertainment in the bar. Not big on chains but these people have their act together.

Stopped by on an early Sunday evening for an appetizer and bottle of wine. Great deal on bottled wines on Sunday, all wines under $100 are half price. Had the Tuna Tartare which is nothing short of fantastic !

Don't let the fact that this place is a chain restaurant deter you. This place had amazing food. We asked some of the locals where we could get good seafood. They all suggested Ocean Prime. We were not disappointed. They have covered, outside seating that backs up to a lake with a small fountain. Plenty of parking and seating. We... More

I had always heard great things about Ocean Prime, and for my boyfriends 29th birthday, this seemed like the perfect place. Excited for our night, we set out for the restaurant. Once we arrived, were seated promptly, the hosts were very nice. Our server John, I believe his name was, was hands down the best server I have ever had.... More

Went here on a Saturday night at about 5:00 p.m. Had the bubbles and berry drink to start and was great. Had sea bass for dinner and my Dad had the grouper and gnocchi dish and they were both wonderful. We were in a hurry this night so we didn't do appetizers or dessert so next time we will do... More

We had read a review in a local paper to consider this restaurant if in Tampa area. We are delighted to have had a delicious lunch prior to our flight back home. Although the decor is very fancy, we were welcomed (in our travel jeans) and seated like front row centre Broadway style. Our attendant Michael P. provided us ample... More

Love the atmosphere of this dining venue. Happy Hour camaraderie is awesome prior to dinner with a nice business crowd celebrating the end of their day with a perfectly concocted cocktail. Dinner was equally as delightful with delicious appetizers and our meal selections excellent in flavor and presentation. Service was very attentive and efficient.

This is an excellent restaurant, & you will need to make reservations a week in advance at least in order to get a table at the weekend.

We have always enjoyed this restaurant but we don't live in Tampa now so it was a treat for us to have lunch while visiting. I see many mixed reviews but our experience was everything we expected. Our waiter Marcos was very good. He explained the specials and I chose the blackened salmon salad. The salmon melted in my mouth... More
