“Expensive but for Disney area about as good as it gets”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2014

Orlando has some really nice restaurants however I am constantly disappointed when trying more upscale options. Invariably they are as expensive as New York City and are totally sub-par in comparison to everything except service (Florida knows service!).
Ocean Prime certainly is expensive and the service great (if somewhat effusive but perhaps that is just a North Easterner perspective) but the food is also quite wonderful.
Greeted warmly by the "free" (but obviously a tip is appreciated) valet who supplies umbrellas for the short walk to the door we were even more warmly greeted by the hostess and seated by a very eager to please waiter (Bradley). The menu is good for a steak / seafood place and had some interesting variations (like the jalapeno cheese scalloped potatoes which were super rich and yummy but probably VERY highly caloric). We had their apparently very popular Chilean sea bass with truffle sauce - delicious and delicate while being rich in flavour. On special was their cowboy 20oz bone in ribeye which was fantastic and cooked to perfection. Beer and wine selections good. Sides are supposedly "family style" and "good for 2 or 3" per our waiter but really 2 sides for 2 people is a more appropriate ratio unless you are a very light eater or filling up on bread (freshly baked sourdough which was pretty good) or appetizers.
We ate in the dining room which is (for Florida) slightly fancy but you can also eat in the attached lounge which is more casual and even has a nice bar with sports on TVs.
Overall we were very happy with the place and would certainly return - could see how it would be fun for larger groups as well.

“If your rich, this is your home:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

I took a colleague of mine to this restaurant. I'm from out of the area, so I told him to pick the nicest joint in town. Not only was their a nice professional environment but there was a very nice ambience setting. The bill was $300 but it was a dinner I will never forget, the fresh salmon was to die for, bring your wallet, and bring an appetite because the food is exquisite. I recommend for any special occasion!

“Really good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

Was in Orlando and wanted to try someplace new. Ocean Prime was one of the concierge suggestions and thought we would give it a try. We sat at a booth in the bar and it worked out great. Went back and forth between seafood and beef, and ended up with Calamari and Tuna Tartar for appetizers, and a veal chop and strip for entrees. Excellent!Their fries are to die for. The appetizers and house salad superb.A reasonably priced wine list with some interesting selections. Not cheap, but a decent value for a staekhouse. The service is fantastic. it seemed everyone working was serving our table. I would say definitley go. I will definitely go back.

“YOu need to GO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

What an awesome time, table was fantastic they had a private Anniversary table set up for us. When we arrived we were greeted and taken to our own private dinning booth . Tina out hostess thru the night was awesome and dinner was fantastic . We could go on in this review but it would never equate to your experience! Enjoy!

“Won't be back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

We had a bad dinner here. Waited 17 minutes to get greeted. Once we got greeted finally, there was not an apology. We asked for a manager 10 more minutes went by so we left. The food might have been great but you can get great food anywhere, its all about the service. Get a clue!!!!!
