> The location of the restaurant is nicely located--easy to find and service in the restaurant and bar were both exacting...most of the time. > The ambiance in the bar is silently wicked (in a good way)--just like their prime black orchid cocktail...especially during "happy hour". The restaurant is charming and spacious. > My favorite happy hour appetizers are: calamari... More

When it's that special event or that special person in your life, you found the right place for the best date night spot in town. Service is impeccable and the food is exquisite. Love the champagne by the glass too!

We picked this place when we spotted the deck by a man-made lake. It took so long for our drink orders to be taken and delivered (45 minutes for my husband to get a glass of wine) that we decided not to order dinner because the service was so slow. The manager comped our drinks but I would not go... More

The calamari were too sweet! The steak wasn't tasty at all! The sorbet to finish the meal at strawberry flavour it doesn't help the digestion! The classical Lemon sorbet is the best everywhere! We both had to drink a hot lemonade to digest after dinner! It was definately too pricy for what we had eaten!

I visited Tampa on a weekend trip and actually planned to dine at Ocean Prime as I usually research everything. I am certainly glad I did! This restaurant and our waiter Drew's service was impeccable but I expected nothing less. Others reviewers expressed the menu as "pricy" but it's comparable to other upscale restaurants and it's well worth it. The... More

Ocean Prime never disappoints. Always great service, perfect atmosphere and wonderful food and drinks. Everything on the menu is worth having, lunch is as good as dinner!

Our friends and I stop here every time we go to Tampa. Truth be told we stop for the incredible Cosmo's at the bar. The appetizers and service are ALWYS exceptional. However this time we were there for lunch and it was equally delightful. The top two dishes were the Shellfish Cobb salad, and the Shrimp Banh Mi WrapSticky Rice,... More

We went with a large group,always a challenge for the waiters. The room we were seated in was pleasant, but felt separate from the rest of the restaurant,so I really couldn't get a feel for the ambiance of the restaurant. The service was good but the star of the show was the food. The special was the grouper so I... More

The atmosphere was modern and open . The food was innovative and delicious. Our server was Tyler Vannetta who was attentive and fun to converse with. I recommend you not just go to Ocean Prime but run there for the great food and service.

I took my team to Ocean prime for dinner to celebrate some successes with our business. I've never been here since I don't live in Tampa. With a private room that was conducive to conversation and an intimate feel for 16 business colleagues. The service was outstanding and quite professional. Adam was our server and lead a team of very... More
