Best Seabass I have ever had. The calamari was also superb. The flavors did a celebration dance in your mouth. The striploin was tender and very flavorful. The dynamite rolls were also delicious. The ambiance is very nice and service good. Would highly recommend.

I recently went there for a lunch and learn. You usually wouldn't expect high quality food for such an event. But it turned out the food was amazing. The Salmon I had was the best ever. The place was nice and quiet. Service is pleasant as well. Parking plot is right across the street, definite a plus for a downtown... More

In town for Stampede, we wanted to get some seafood and this place looked great. They did not disappoint and we really liked how everything was decorated for Stampede. All the staff was dressed western, and they had country music on. Being that we are in Canada just for stampede, that really made us feel welcome. The service was really... More

The Sea bass was excellent.....however the scallops and the short ribs were over cooked and nothing compared to lamb shanks. If we had both had the scallops and short ribs we would have been very disappointed. The fish entree made up for the other disappointment. I have to say although the server recommended the scallops and short ribs he did... More

Sea food and Steak - a winning combination for us. Lovely food and excellent service. We were made to feel really welcome from the moment we walked on. A really lovely place for a nice meal.

Took my wife and her two sisters there for a Saturday evening dinner. Place was less than half full - and really lacked any atmosphere. The waiter we had was good but had too many tables - service was lacking but I'm not sure it's his fault. We started with green salads that had way too much dressing. (One of... More

A group of family gathered here to celebrate my nephew's university convocation. We had previously arranged to have the chef's menu with wine pairings and were very happy the both the meal and beverages served. We started our celebration with a glass of sparkling wine.

I got home today from work quite hungry, and my wife kindly offered me a simple tuna sandwich as a small snack before dinner. I happily accepted and as I was eating my sandwich, I reflected on last night's dinner at Rush Ocean Prime. In doing so, I came to the conclusion that the tuna sandwich (made from canned Costco...
