    Came here for dinner and Mina was our server. She was amazing from all aspects to dinner knowledge, what was in each food and parings to complement the dinner. She was attentive and not distracting and some of the best service we have ever had. The meals were amazing from the fresh halibut, the wagu beef and the ribeye will the compliments of extras. The dining room was dimly lite and the noise level was low. This was by far one of the best meals of fine dining that we have had in a long time.

    Always a great time at this location. I usually order the same thing however I added a new appetizer to my “same thing” meal, Shrimp Staute’. It was delicious with a cream and Tabasco sauce served with toasted bread (can’t recall name) w/cheese. I believe I’ve found a new favorite. It was a Friday night. Based on my last minute plans, I could only reserve a bar table. Service was unusually slow, extremely, however the staff was friendly, per usual. Not sure if my table in the bar area played a role here…I’m usually in the dining area. Wrong menu item was delivered however was quickly corrected. I love this spot for the soups and salads …oh and the warm table bread (unfortunately had to ask for it several times …4th time was the charm) Go, just go and experience this fine dining for yourself!

    Everything exceeded expectations. Food, Service from our waiter (wish I could remember the gentleman’s name), who went above and beyond and was extremely polite and gracious in every interaction with us. The crab wedge salad (chopped prior) I know is normally the lunch a appetizer but the waiter ensured me and my date were able to enjoy it as an appetizer before dinner and all I can say is Wow. Easily the best salad I can remember enjoying. The crab was plenty. The recommended Teriyaki Salmon for dinner was even better. Seating location was on point. We had a marvelous time and look forward to coming back.

    The service was awesome. You get knowledgeable waiters and excellent service. The food was good and nicely presented. The only thing that could be better is the noise, the background music was too loud and we had a hard time having a conversation.

    A beautiful meal in a lovely room. Server Victor was excellent and informative without being too intrusive. West coast oysters to start were plump and fresh, wedge salad was equally pleasing. Main course scallops were perfect with a luxurious risotto and the halibut special was a spectacular piece of fish. Finally the hot butter pound cake was steamy hot, rich snd delicious. It’s pricey, yes, but worth it. Go.

    Overall, it was a great experience. The music, however, was too loud. Top 40 POP music would not have been my choice for the music genre. That being said, if the volume was lower, folks wouldn't have to shout across the tables. I'd expect that at a Sports Bar or restaurants like Friday's, not a "fine dining" establishment...

    It was Ocean Prime, DC that introduced me to this wonderful chain, which I’ve now visited in many different cities. A fabulous meal, great service, my only slight complaint would be the berries and bubbles didn’t seem to have the same flavour as before, has someone changed the recipe? It was a bit insipid, which is a shame because it is such a lovely drink normally.

    Sat down at 4pm and left at 6 pm. Only because Johnathan the server felt that our job to wait on him and accept his lack of attention. We order Dragon Roll and he chose to order 2 orders for only 2 people. Every course there was at least a 20-minute wait and he only remembered looking at the frustration on my face. To cap things off I leave him a $20 tip on a $200 bill and he proceeds to ask was there something wrong with the service and takes the bill out of wofe’s. I asked him for a copy of the bill and big boy rolled his eyes. He mad a good dinner experience horror ble with his bad attitude.

    Jessica was our server -- she was gracious, knowledgeable, and responsive. All our entrees and appetizers were delicious. We had a booth in the bar area, so the noise level was appropriate to where we were sitting. Next time, I would definitely stipulate the dining area, where the ambience would have better matched the quality of our meal. Very much looking forward to returning and trying the other entrées our server recommended!
