All I need to say is...berries and bubbles! Their specialty martini is truly one of a kind and keeps me coming back! We recently dined there to celebrate our son's graduation from high school. It hit the mark, for sure! From the champagne toast with strawberries in each glass, to the crab cocktails with smoking dry ice to the excellent filet mignon, fresh red snapper, lobster and baked Alaska to finish the meal, it was one very special celebration for an awesome son bound for Stanford! We highly recommend this place, whether you want an intimate date night (try the lounge with a singer songwriter serenade!) or a family celebration, this is the best of Tampa Bay. We've been to Bern's,Charley's, Oyster Catchers and Chart House. We return to Ocean Prime again and again.

We are frequent steak restaurant visitors - at least twice per month - but we hadn't been to one of the Ocean Prime restaurants. It was a revelation in many ways, as Ocean Prime did a better job than some of the other highly-touted places. The key to our very positive review is the selection of fish and seafood - besides the obligatory shrimp and lobster seen on all steak restaurant menus - in addition to premium red meat. The food was all perfectly prepared, and perfectly seasoned. Their version of tuna tartar, layered on a bed of avocado and crispy noodles, was the best version of this dish we've ever had. And the service was top notch, closer to the big city experience that we expect at a high end steak restaurant. One minor criticism is that the wine list did not have enough "transition" red wines that would work with both fish and meat. With the help of our excellent server Dave Mason, we chose a very nice, ripe Sonoma pinot noir from Patz & Hall.

Although we had more than enough food, we were offered dessert. Again, we were pleasant surprised with their high end version of berries and shortcake - the shortcake was a warm, gooey centered version that was delightful with the fresh strawberries and blueberries. We look forward to coming back, with friends.

We had a large group in one of the private rooms. On arrival, the seating was not conducive for our group, which they very quickly changed to accommodate us. Food is always top notch as is the service. Definitely order the calamari app.

This is one of the nicest restaurants in Tampa. From the quality steaks to the freshest seafood, this restaurant has it all. It's pricy but worth every dollar. I had the Blackened Snapper which was cooked to perfection and our table shared several sidedness one being the Black truffle mac and cheese. Omg so good! I will definitely go back to Ocean Prime.
