Our dinner could be a training dinner for how to get 5 stars on Tripadvisor. While this location is 'in a mall' we were seated along the window and there is a genuinely pleasant view. From the moment we sat down to the time we left, everything, yes EVERYTHING was terrific. Service (thanks Dave Mason) impeccable. Justin, the manager came... More

Enjoyed an exceptional dinner tonight at Ocean Prime. We were celebrating our anniversary and my husband had told them this when making reservations. From the moment we were seated, they made this a very special celebration. The host sprinkled heart confetti on the table the. Came back with two fluted glasses of champagne. We were lucky enough to be seated... More

We found the drinks very expensive - $75 in our case for 4 of us. Disappointing to find almost the entire wine list was Californian. In the single serving list, only one non-Californian, a NZ wine and a pathetic Kim Crawford no less. No apéritif like DuBonnet. The food was average, cooked properly and in a decent presentation. But what... More

The food was prepared perfectly, I just wish there was a little more of it. The Pacific Halibut was perfectly cooked but less than a 6oz serving size with no sides left me wanting more.

We found this restaurant on Open Table, and really enjoyed our meal here. The room is spacious and light, and the service very friendly - our waitress Adrienne was lovely and mentioned it was 1/2 price bottle of wine night! Thanks for a great evening!

Had a nice dinner here the other night. We've been here a few times in the past also. We had the Lobster Bisque which is excellent as well as the "Smoking" Shellfish Tower which is this cool meal on dry ice, hence the "smoking". The Caesar Salad was pretty forgettable. No new ground here. Fresh lettuce, but the dressing needs... More

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 lunch was worth... 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.
