We were looking at items in Crate and Barrel around lunch time, came out and right next door was Ocean Prime. After reading the bill of fare posted outside we decided to go in for lunch. Well just the number of staff that greet you is impressive. We asked to eat outside as it seemed we just needed a break... More

Good food and excellent Sevice. As an app we had the cheese fondue which came with vegetables and it was one of the best we had. My husband had a cheeseburger cooked properly with French onion soup...soup was yummy. I had the catch of the day grouper sandwich without the bread. It was also good but a little to much... More

My friends took me for my birthday and the staff decorated the table with confetti. I had sushi which is pictured, and it was so good. After dinner, we stayed in the lounge area and listened to the live music. You can sit at the piano! It's very nice. We will go again.

This is a go-to restaurant for a big occasion. It is elegant and expensive - and worth every penny you spend.

A top notch eatery with professional wait staff. The food is the draw but this spot has the entire package for dining out. This visit I chose the avocado ahi tuna stack which disappeared from the plate. For my main it was the Terriyaki Salmon and it disappeared as well. Dessert was their fantastic creme brûlée which sadly was left... More

Meal was great, waiter/service was exceptional.HOWEVER, we arrived at our made-well-in-advance 7 pm reservation promptly at 7 pm (note that we were called at least two times to confirm we would be there). Waited in lounge (our idea, not reception's and we told them we would be there); after 10 minutes we questioned the reception staff about the delay and... More

Had drinks here for happy hour earlier in the week. Great vibe, diverse menu, reasonable prices. Food was very tasty. Staff was a bit unsure re: GF at times, but with some conversation they got it right. Would recommend and go back.
