“Prime”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Ocean Prime attracts a big Bar Scene. In fact, they have several bars within the restaurant. The main bar is huge with a beautiful back drop. It can become quite the scene filled with business men traveling during the week . So it is not always my scene. It can become so crowded that service in the bar is hindered. They have tables in the bar and offer a full service menu. Cocktails are inventive. They have a cucumber martini that is delicious. I love their shrimp cocktail. Huge jumbo shrimp are placed before you and they are delicious as are the oysters on the half shell. The french onion soup is delicious. The salads are nice, fresh, crisp and creative. The sea bass and ahi tuna as an entree are perfect. A very expensive haunt so have the pockets filled wih gold!!!

“Best meal of the week”
Reviewed February 22, 2013 via mobile

Let me begin by saying that after dining there last night we are going back tonight
The sea bass special was outrageous. The adult salmon entree I will order tonight. Looked yummy on my husband's plate. Children's menu was outrageous. 7 ounces of salmon, 9 ounces of filet mignon , plus your usual chicken fingers, macaroni and cheese, etc., for $7.00 Not a typo. Seven dollars. Pretty restaurant. You will enjoy.

“Bomb. A$$.”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

Could be my favorite restaurant in Tampa. The steaks are impeccable, the sides are all on point and the seafood is fantastic. Try the seafood tower app if you want your mind blown. We always request Tricia to be our server, she will keep you happy!

“Yummy food, nice atmosphere”
Reviewed February 12, 2013

I stopped in for lunch while I was in town for my best friends wedding and glad I did! I had the fish sandwich which came with lobster bisque and it was deeelicious! It was about $14 for the 2 if I remember correctly; good value for the amount of food and the fact that it was seafood. The atmosphere was really cool, I liked the outdoor fireplace and the various seating options. Our waiter was very professional and helpful with our questions. He also made sure to ask if we were from the area which we are not so he let us know the fish was caught locally down the street and the beer one of the guys had was made local as well. I would definitely eat here again, but will probably save this restaurant for more of a special occasion as the prices were a tad higher for a regular lunch outting in my opinion.
