Again OP over delivered. We had a business dinner for 10 and we received great personalize service. You can order pretty much anything and at the size or quantity you want. Fish is fresh and the steaks are perfect. I would recommend this high end place to everybody.
It's that good.

I wasn't impressed - the food was ok, the service was sub-par. Three times I waited for nearly 10 minutes before someone came around to refill my water.
This is a restaurant that charges a premium, to say the least - and we had an assistant waiter and a waiter, not to mention the countless employees who were constantly walking by that ignored the empty glass.
When my bill came, it was brought with a comment card for me to fill out - unfortunately, the comment card was already filled out by someone who had a significantly better experience than did I...
But what really threw me over the edge was waiting for 15 minutes with my credit card on the table without the waiter coming back for it. I received my bill at 9:28. At 9:45, I finally got up and paid up front like it was a Denny's.

I wouldn't go back unless it was free.

I was in Tampa for work & found myself looking for a good seafood restaurant close to my hotel. Ocean Prime kept popping up as a high rated establishment so I gave it a try. The restaurant itself has great aesthetics. I enjoyed the look & feel of my dining experience. I was solo & I decided to dine at one of the bars. The menu was well balanced, yet not overwhelming. I started with the ahi tuna tartar, which was amazing. The tuna tasted very fresh & the dressing had a nice acidity to it. They also have great warm bread that I couldn't resist & entirely consumed. Next was a scallop risotto that really made my meal. The risotto was perfectly cooked & seasoned. The scallops were seared and laid neatly on top. It was wonderful. I got a little greedy & ordered a half size of the lobster mashed potatoes. I don't regret it. All-in-all, if I ever have to visit Tampa again, I will absolutely comeback here.

The bartender was very friendly & got me wined/dined post haste.

My son who will be 18 in December and I started going to Ocean Prime 3-4 years ago for special celebrations. Then I started going with my gf for her birthdays and mine too. We ALL LOVE everything about OP. The Food-Service-Ambiance is all excellent ~ This place has it ALL. I have been to the best restaurants in the world and you wont find a place much better than OP. They definitely have the best steak in Tampa bar none. Their rib-eye is to die for~ Juicy but not greasy and delicious. Lobster is sweet and juicy~ Also their truffle cheese macaroni is 'da bomb" and a must for anyone dining there. The service is ALWAYS outstanding and the setting is cool and sexy a bit "South-beach like"~ We like eating out on the patio especially in the wintertime as they have nice heat warmers outside if need be. When in Tampa go to the OP for a great evening that you will always remember~
