Ocean Prime is my favorite restaurant in the city. Food is always fresh and delicious. Service is great and staff are accommodating. I had the ribeye and it was perfect.

It was enjoyable and the food is generally good, but the prices charged don't equate to the service or food taste/size. Steak was overdone, had to send it back, asked a few times for cutlery missing from table. One appetizer came 10 minutes before another. Busy night so that may have something to do with it. Service and food are usually excellent, this time was a little disappointing.

I've come to expect world-class food and service from Cameron Mitchell restaurants, and Ocean Prime in Philadelphia does not disappoint. Despite covid-19 precautions (which were quite thorough), it was an engaging and delicious experience. From the magic of the Berries & Bubbles cocktail to the decadent 10-layer carrot cake, everything was perfect. I can't wait to go back.

It was our anniversary- they gave us a free dessert and drinks. Everything was amazing. From the service to the food to the cleanliness - especially during COVID. We look forward to returning!

I was celebrating my birthday and we were running late. I’m glad we were still able to be seated. However, the food was not worth the value. I asked for a medium rare steak and received a well done steak. My boyfriend enjoyed the meals.

Staff was great but the patrons were anything but. We had a group next to us smoking weed while we ate and management did nothing. It did not live up to its own high end dining experience.

My husband and I were so excited to hear Ocean Prime was open again. We normally go for Restaurant Week and we have never had a bad experience. The food is always amazing, a little pricey but totally worth it. The service is outstanding as is the ambiance. It’s a great place for a date or special occasion.

The service was perfect from the moment I walked in the door all the way up until I left out. Food was delicious, dessert was on the house for me being a veteran and I am grateful for the hospitality.

This was our first time at Ocean Prime and they did a pretty good job with social distance rules during this pandemic! Staff was attentive to our needs and well versed on menu options. My Salmon dish was great! Only complaint would be my husbands steak 🥩 that was cooked to his liking but was fatty and grisly 🙁.. However would definitely recommend or return

Very nice restaurant with great food. The service was great, and everyone was quite accommodating. If we were unsure of a choice selection the server was very knowledgeable of the dishes and made a few recommendations based off of our preferred tastes in the selection.

Food and service were good. I ordered the Chilian Sea bass and was not happy, as it was overcooked and very chewy. For $50 and a small portion, wouldn't order that again.

Excellent service - Valet, Front House/Management, and Wait Staff all professional and attentive. We were running late and called ahead, they were gracious and extended our arrival time. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and I notated this in our online reservation. When we arrived, staff greeted us warmly and acknowledged we were celebrating his birthday, and throughout the evening several staff members wished him well.

The restaurant is decorated quite beautifully as I would expect for a 4-5 star restaurant. Unfortunately, and maybe due to the times we're living in, they were quite lax on the dress code. I'm not sure how dress codes are being enforced these days, but many of the patrons were not dressed appropriately for this type of establishment.

Drinks were perfect and appetizers were presented well. We had a dozen oysters and shared the surf and turf appetizer. For the main course, my husband had the 8 oz filet mignon with a side of sautéed mushrooms (delish). The filet was cooked to perfection per his request, but it lacked significant flavor. I had the grouper, it was prepared well and tasted great, but it was served with a garnish that took away from the flavor of the fish. The dish also included bits of lobster and gnocchi but there were very few gnocchi added. I am a fan of this pasta and felt like they could have added more since the entrée wasn't cheap. Overall our meal and the experience was great and we will be back.

A huge thank you again to the staff for making it a memorable evening!!

The location of our table was horrible. We kept getting interrupted by servers and assistant servers because they needed to get glasses, cloths etc.

The quality of the food was horrible: the crab cake was mushy. The lobster bisque was cold and had no taste at all. The lobster tails were over seasoned. The teriyaki salmon was absolutely tasteless and the rice was over cooked.and our warm butter cake was extremely dense and had a piece of hair in it. The drinks were good!
