    The food was excellent but the service was a bit off. For example my second glass of wine showed up considerably after the entrée arrived when it should’ve been served considerably prior to that. Overall the service was decent but a bit less attentive than you would expect for those prices.

    It would have been nice to have our drinks refilled even one time during our meal. We had prompt attention at the beginning. Our food was on the table in record time, less than 15 minutes after we were seated. But then we were basically ignored for 45 minutes. The food was delicious. The table next to us was extremely loud but I was able to stay entertained by their boisterous and often inappropriate commentary. I was disappointed in the lack of dress code enforcement.

    Every bit of our food was exceptional. Our server Lauren was perfect -- attentive but not overly attentive, and genuine. While pricey for KC, the food absolutely justified the cost.

    We celebrated our 53rd anniversary. Hardly anyone there at 12:30. Seated at probably the worst table right next to service station. Why?? Although plenty of staff, service was slow/fair. Probably not worth another visit.

    Very pricy but the food was absolutely excellent. Service was good but we had to wait to be seated and then wait- I thought- a pretty long time for a server- to even get water.

    Great experience—food was spot on from salad to entree. I had the wedge salad and the filet mignon—both were great and flavor was spectacular—also had the jalapeño Potatoes which was really really good. Service was primo along with ambience—highly recommend!

    My boyfriend & I came here for the first time last night to celebrate our anniversary & it absolutely blew us away. All of the food we tried was amazing, & our sever, Bree, was phenomenal. I have never had this great of service at any restaurant before. I 10000% recommend this restaurant especially if you are celebrating something- they started our night off with complimentary champagne & ended it with complimentary dessert!!!!

    About 15-20% higher priced than other high dollar restaurants I have visited in the past 2-3 years. Service was top notch and my wife loved her Chilean Sea Bass, but my lobster was good, but not great. Same with Calimari, which we had for our appetizer. Ten layer Carrot cake was also outstanding.

    Calamari appetizer sauce was very good by meat was chewy. The meat for the Grouper entree was flavorless and over cooked, lobster gnocchi broth was very good. Peach salad was very good.

    This was our first time to visit Ocean Prime. Our overall experience was pleasant enough. The service was amazing. The food was good. The air conditioning was over the top and negated what could have been a great experience for the money. Pack a sweater.

    JD was a super awesome host. First time guests. Attentive, exhibiting care n concern for our dining experience. He successfully balanced our table conversation with the progression of ordering and the procession of table delivery. Meat or seafood: can’t go wrong. Sides were killer: asparagus, Brussels, shrooms. Drinks n apps were unexpectedly extra yummy. We’re looking forward to returning!

    I have been very disappointed by my experience at Ocean Prime. I went for a business lunch and requested a receipt by email at the end. I never received the receipt. I have called for the last 3 days asking to please get the receipt so that I can expense the lunch as I am required to do. I keep being told that only the managers know how to retrieve a receipt from the system and that they would do so as soon as they became available. I also keep getting promised that a manager will call me back as soon as they come out of their meetings. None of that has happened. It looks like I will have to physically go to the location myself and wait until I can get my receipt. Very disappointed by the service, and I would not recommend.

    I highly recommend this restaurant, because the food is fabulous and so is the service. I also was very pleased with the way they made us feel special with their generosity for my husband’s birthday, greeting us with a glass of challenge and a beautiful desert. Not too many places do this kind of thing.

    Very disappointing!! We were hoping for another restaurant in the same league as capital grille or 801. Not so much! Lobster tails were flat and just not good. And apparently no dress code because anything goes the night we were there.
