“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

The prices were a bit high for the lack of selection and portions...but the salad I got was GREAT. The pineapples they soaked in Vodka were STRONG and had absolutely no leftover fruit taste...a good thing. I'll be partying here again!

“Very special night out!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

We went to Ocean Prime to celebrate my nephew's return from Afghanistan. The service and food were excellent. Each staff member made it a point to welcome him home and thank him for his service and the Chef served him 3 of their most popular desserts. The drinks were unusual and delicious, especially the Bubbles & Berries. They made our evening very special, can't wait to go back.

“Must Visit when in Tampa 5++”
Reviewed September 27, 2012

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!

“LOVED LOVED LOVED”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

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.

“When eating well is a must...”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

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.
