The service went down drastically. My server was unprofessional speaking over the table to her co worker. When I ordered, her response was “ard”. I paid over $400 for the most unprofessional service I’ve ever received in my life!!!! :((( DO NOT DINE HERE

Had a very nice time and a great dinner. The server was fantastic and I gotta tell you that the oysters were incredible. I’ve had oysters all over but there was something about them that night. The fish place sent them a fantastic batch... so good. We had a wonderful meal, proper cocktails, and they had a great wine list. We wanted some bubbly and they carry Bollinger. It was very nice that they carried that champagne and not just the standard brands. Bollinger is a great one and it was perfect with a seafood meal. Thank you very much to everyone at Ocean Prime. Really a nice meal :)

Perfect ambiance for a date night. The food was delicious although my dates steak was a little too chard. They have a nice variety when it comes to drinks, food, and dessert, and the host and wait staff were great. Overall, it was a nice dining experience.

Nice place to enjoy a nice dinner with friends or date. For the cost of the meal I expected to be wowed by the food and I was kinda disappointed. The shrimp cocktail was tasty and enjoyed the presentation. It was really cool served in a fogging glass. I had the Salmon Teriyaki. Salmon was prepared nicely however the teriyaki sauce flavor was too mild and not flavorful at all. The Garlic Mash was ok and creamed spinach could use a little salt and pepper. My stepson had the Lobster Macaroni and it was too wet and under seasoned as well. For the cost (4 people bill total around $288) I wasn’t too pleased with the quality of food. But we did enjoy ourselves.

I went for my birthday. Service was great but kind of felt rushed at the end. I wanted creme brulee but didn't get the chance to order because they brought out a birthday desert (butter cake 6/10) didn't want to be a hassle so I just picked at that instead. Sushi was good. Do not recommend the crab cake or broccoli. Salmon teriyaki was amazing.

Saturday was my first time here for my birthday and I loved it, I enjoyed myself and the food. My waitress was awesome wish I remembered her name. I didn’t have to wait long at all to be seated for my reservation. Everyone was so nice and pleasant even the doorman. I will definitely come back again.

Celebrated my 39th wedding anniversary by dinning at this establishment. Loved the ambience, food and attentive staff. Already booked a visit to their sister restaurant in DC as a result of this experience. If it is as good. This chain will definitely become one of my favorites.

I booked Ocean Prime due to all of the great reviews. I couldn’t have picked a better restaurant to celebrate my husband’s birthday. Our server was Jeffrey. Let me tell you! This man was OUTSTANDING!!!! He made excellent recommendations for food and alcoholic beverages. He was very attentive, but not over the top! He offered us dessert, and what a pleasant surprise to get the check and see there was a 12 dollar “birthday credit”. We never expected that, but he went above and beyond to make our time there memorable. I would drive the 2 hours over and over again to come back to this place! Everyone from entrance to exit were phenomenal!!! I highly recommend this place, and can’t WAIT to go back!

The music was too loud for me. This place tends to be geared for the younger crowd. The food was good but there were times when the staff didn’t remember what we requested, like sodas and take away containers.

Girls night out. I ordered the special which was a fish dish. Pretty bland and under seasoned. I should’ve just ordered the steak. Staff was wonderful. Christian was great. I can’t recall my waitresses name but she was also good.

Our server could have been way more attentive. He did not provide the level of service that should come with the price of the experience. It seemed like whatever we asked for outside of our order wasn’t important enough to fulfill. It literally took 15 to 29 minutes just to get someone’s attention for salt & pepper. Very disappointed..

As usual everything was amazing at Ocean Prime. The seafood couldn’t be any fresher or prepared any better and the steaks cut like butter. Our server Max made our dining experience outstanding! Truly the very best restaurant in Philadelphia today. Highly recommended!
