This restaurant was fantastic! I had the blue cheese filet with the mac and cheese, asparagus with hollandaise and a lobster tail on the side. It was by far one of the best meals I have had! to top it off a great bottle of Heitz Cabernet to go with it! Service was excellent and the live piano was perfect. Could not have had a better dining experience thank you Ocean Prime!

We had an amazing time at this restaurant. So great that we went back again. They have a great champagne drink with berries that you should get just for the experience and the absolute best salad with huge amounts of seafood. Top shelf service, top shelf food and a top shelf bill but it was worth every dime.

Ocean Prime has always been exellent, the food and the service. Try the Bubbles and Berries martini, so good and so fun, a virtual volcano before your eyes. The bar is pleasant and includes a piano. The dining room comfortable with clean lines. Always a sure thing when you want truly good food.

My husband and I went for drinks one night and decided to have a small bite. I requested a drink that wasn't on the menu but the bartender knew how to prepare it. The hostess and waitress were also very nice. Their oysters are good quality. The tuna tartar was nice but too salty. Overall it was a nice place. Nice atmosphere. Also outside seating. I would recommend but keep in mind that its quite expensive. 2 drinks and 2 appetizers will cost you at least 80$.

I choose this to celebrate a birthday since we both love seafood. A very pleasant and fun evening throughout. We arrived early and went to the bar for a drink. Despite being busy we were taken care of within a few minutes and my wife's specialty martini was great. They gladly changed the TV station for us as well. We had reservations and were seated right on time. The service at our table was fantastic, polite, neve waiting but also not intrusive so we could talk and enjoy our meal. The seafood (blackened snapper and tuna) was excellent and prepared properly. The hot bread they brought to the table was outstanding. It was a pricey evening so it won't be a usual dinner hangout but definitely on the short list for special occasions. Most of the other guests were dressed for a nice evening so we may not be alone in our thoughts.
