Absolutely outstanding. No other words to describe Ocean Prime. We hadn’t been since January before COVID. My mother and I were in the city and decided to come to Ocean Prime. There was outdoor seating only- but indoor will start Tuesday of next week! I am always apprehensive of outdoor dining but as usual Ocean Prime exceeded all expectations. Our server, Nacer, was amazing. He was extremely attentive and all of the food was done to perfection. If you’re looking for a crab cocktail- this is THE place. We must revive our beloved city- come out and patronize these great restaurants! You will not be disappointed.

I have nothing good to say about this place. I am so disgusted. I have never had such a bad experience like this in my entire life especially considering the amount of money that was spent here i definitely was disrespected to the max. Being this is during covid, 3 days before 25% capacity indoor dining starts. As restrictions ease , i thought i was helping by not having my party of 8 sitting at one table as i was told over the phone the max that can be seated at one table is 7 i said that’s fine i just would like(requested) to have 2 tables of 4 each NEAR eachother. They continued to tell me over the phone that they could not guarantee that set up and when asked why i was told we will try but because of cdc guidelines we can’t have too large of a group. 2 weeks later comes reservation and i get a phone call the day of telling me that the separate reservations i booked were 15 minutes apart , though that is beside the point because there is a 15 min grace period which means requests should have still been met. I arrive and i see at least 3 tables of 10 plus parties and when i asked a manager named BRIAN about that HE told me the party reserved as private dining , then later claimed the party signed a contract. Why would there be a contract for cdc guidelines claiming they will follow cdc guidelines when there is no social distancing when a table of 10 has no masks sitting an inch from eachother it’ doesn’t make any sense. As i tried to make sense of Brian’s reasoning for why my extra table of 4 couldn’t be reserved near my other reservation of 4 he didn’t fail to mention “this isn’t an isolated situation” emphasizing to me (as a black female) so i would not be “triggered”. Brian did everything in his power to not accommodate my party on my birthday and when he walked away he grunted very loudly ,my whole party heard him , other customers heads turned .Very unprofessional he raised his voice at my friend who was trying to help me have a good time.

Basic business dinner. Great service and food quality. A bit of extraneous noise from an building exhaust vent, but that’s just due to outdoor dining challenges.

Love the food, wine and service at Ocean Prime. I think the prices are still a little high which could deter diners from being more "regular".

Everything was great, Only thing I would say is that I ordered a steak “medium” but the steak was cooked a little more medium well. Other than that everything was great and food was wonderful.

was at first concerned since it was outside seating but table set up was not in the street but outside the restaurant. Food was amazing and came out very quickly. I was the last reservation for the night but the staff was warm and accomodating. I would highly recommend dinner there.

The crab cakes and the roasted chicken I ordered were delicious!

Also I felt very safe dining outdoors at Ocean Prime. Their staff followed all COVID-19 safety protocols wearing masks and ensuring tables were far away from each other. I would definitely go again.

Staff was super friendly and accommodating. I went around a time when it was going to rain and most of the tables that had full coverage were taken. The hostess offered a table that was barely covered but then told us to wait a few because we could get a more covered table. It took about 15-20 mins but once we were seated it was a great experience. All staff wore masks and servers wore gloves as well.

The food was delicious and our waitress was very knowledgeable of the menu items. I miss being able to dine inside but overall the experience was very positive and I felt safe.

We were initially wary of outdoor dining arrangements having seen so many unacceptable outdoor facilities as a result of Covid-19... but the staff and management immediately dashed any doubt. Strict 6 foot spacing and it seemed like it was even more than that. Masks are mandatory for everyone unless you are physically seated and enjoying your meal. If for any reason someone got up and strayed from their seat, security and staff immediately reminded individuals of their responsibilities to other diners and would not let them proceed any farther. We were so very impressed and we applauded the restaurant staff for truly caring. And what an amazing meal!

Great night out at Ocean Prime New York! My wife and I felt very comfortable with their COVID precautions. Tables were well spaced, servers wore masks and gloves, and tables were thoroughly cleaned. The food was as good as always. We had the seafood tower, goat cheese ravioli, and red snapper. Our server was fantastic!
