The service was excellent and our waiter Tiago was very nice. The food was great, little pricey but tasted good. They even surprised us with a free dessert with a happy anniversary chocolate piece and candle on it. I enjoyed my anniversary at Ocean prime and would recommend it to everyone.

Goof food and service, but pricey. In keeping with others of it's type like Capital Grill, Abe & Louis and Atlantic Fish, but slightly more limited food style. Quality of food was good, service was good, but nothing was outstanding. They made a $10 error between the price of the bill and the cc charge, in their favor. It was corrected when we pointed it out, but how many people check that..easy way for the restaurant to make an extra couple of dollars.

Ordered a steak medium, came out rare, they put it back on the grill and came out like a hockey puck, completely burnt. The rest of my party was almost done eating by the time I got my steak.

Made a reservation based on online recommendations. Meal was good but for the price i expect it to be great. I got the onion soup which was tasteful but seemed to be lacking the main ingredient onions. Plenty of cheese and bread but minimal onions. Got the new York sirloin medium. Cook was good but seasoning wasnt superb as I'd expect At a high end steakhouse. The best part of my meal was parmesan truffle fries were great. Wife got a Caesar salad and scallops that were very good but just weren't over the top. Maybe our expectations are to high and the dinner was enjoyable just not one of the best meals I've ever had.

For my Southern readers, this is our take on Truluck's- offering excellent seafood and steaks in a comfortable, spacious setting with a sleek vibe (live music) to match. \n\nThe crab cakes were slightly underwhelming compared to other top end steakhouses while the crab cocktail did not disappoint. On the contrary, the steaks far exceeded expectations and the inventive side dishes and desserts offered a refreshing flair that makes this restaurant standout. \n\nAs you make your way out to Envoy or Legal Harborside this summer, consider this restaurant as a rivaling competitor to Del Frisco's that's worth a look.

We first dined and wined at Ocean Prime on December 29th to celebrate our wedding anniversary with two other couples. Our waiter I believe his name Align was extremely knowledgeable about the wines and went out of his way to be sure that we had what we needed at all times. He was a joy to speak to. The food was excellent from the taste and portion to the presentation. \n\nSince we planned to go out this past Saturday (2/4) with another couple who does not get into Boston too frequently to dine, we figured-let's introduce them to Ocean Prime. We told them the bar was hopping and they have live entertainment and that the food was terrific. The ambiance was great but the food did not taste as good as the last time. The calamari was super salty and when our friend tried tuna tatare for the first time, he said all I taste is soy sauce. He and his wife did not seem to enjoy their entrees and we were a little embarrassed to split the bill since it was our call to go there. \n\nWe always give a restaurant with great ambiance three tries. We will try it again and hope it was just a bad night for the kitchen staff.

My husband and I tried it the other night as we love steak and had a date night. From walking in the setup was very crowded at the bar and as we made our way into the dining area it wasn't the layout we were expecting. While dining the music from the bar area and noise from tables next to us made the experience not very enjoyable where intimate conversation was impossible. Calamari was good. We ordered Tomahawk steak for two with truffle butter on side, mushrooms, truffle fries and truffle Mac n Cheese. Steak was precut and tasteless with lots of fat, truffle anything had no authentic truffle taste whatsoever ...usually you can smell truffle oil a mile away. We skipped dessert as the cost of dinner versus the lack of quality ruined our date night. Never go back.

Tuna tarts was excellent. Calamari had a sweet sauce ( tasty but I Prefer RI style). Extensive high priced wine list. Although we had a California merlot for $60. We were a family of six. Must say they have 5 oz filet mug on on the kids menu. Perfect price for the little palette. Surf and turf. Filets and lobster tail was succulent and king crab legs were the sweetest. Kansas City strip was flavorful as was the lamb chops. Chilean sea bass was a bit bland. It needs a kick. Creme brûlée was fantastic a classic, and a large portion. I'd pass on the carrot cake too sweet. Service and atmosphere were nice. I I'll schedule a private event, those accommodations are just right.

I dined at Ocean Prime in October while I was visiting Boston with friends. I was so excited based on reviews and the Seaport location but was completely disappointed. I visit the city twice a year with a group of ladies and have dined in about a dozen different steakhouses and can honestly say this was the worst experience I've had. In fact, this is probably the worst steakhouse I've ever been to period. \n\nOur well dressed group of five professional women were seated in the corner of a back, sound proofed private room on a Saturday night so couldn't enjoy the atmosphere or music. We didn't speak up about this but should have or the hostess should have informed us about where she was seating us. We found this to be highly insulting, as we were being punished with a time out in the corner.\n\nI figured my delicious meal would have made up for this but that was not the case. My filet was served with a cut down the center. Not a butterfly, a knife slice. I've never seen steak served this way before, I guess the chef doesn't know how to cook medium vs medium well. The taste and quality of the steak were subpar. The brussels sprouts were dry.\nOur waiter seemed overall confused with no personality. Maybe he was new and if that was the case, he should have been trailing someone. \n\nThe only positive was that the staff kept a smile on their faces even though their competence was questionable. Steakhouses should have a professional wait staff, this was more like students needing part time work. \n\nIf you are looking for a hot bar scene with good live music where you need to fight the crowd to get a drink, this is your place. If you are looking for a top quality steakhouse, go anywhere else.

The choices were wide and creative enough to fit any dietary requirements. The food preparation, quality and presentation were probably the best I have ever experienced in Boston in all my years and in the top 5 in the whole world, that I have travelled extensively.

This was my 2nd attempt at Ocean Prime and I will not be coming back. My husband and I go out in Boston a lot so we have high expectations with so many good fine dining restaurants to choose from. Every New Years we pick a place to have a nice dinner so this year we decided to give Ocean Prime a shot. I had been once before when they first opened and had a bad experience (overcooked steak then under cooked when sent back), so I figured Id give them another chance assuming they worked out the kinks, but I was wrong. \n\nWe started with the tuna tartar which was good. We decided to share the lobster bisque which had no lobster and was served luke warm. I should have said something about the soup so maybe our dinner would have received more attention, but I hate complaining and our waitress never came to check on us so we let it slide. We both ordered the filet mignon and while both were cooked according to how we ordered them, mine was served to me cold and my husbands was WAY over seasoned. We also added scallops which were overcooked and therefore rubbery..... For sides we ordered the brussel sprouts and compared to everything else they were the best thing we had and a side of the jalapeno au gratin potatoes, only there was no jalapeno whatsoever. Pretty disappointing considering we love the Seaport area but with so many other good places close by we will not be coming back.

Our visit was spurred by curiosity to see what had taken the place of good,old Pier 4 and we were not disappointed. We ordered all seafood: raw oysters, steamed lobster tails, tuna tartare and crab cakes. Nothing there to tax the expertise or creativity of the chef but all was very fresh and very tasty. Service, at the bar and at the table, was excellent.\n\nWe had traveled all day and thus made an early reservation which probably coincided with the peak of the after-work bar scene. Which probably meant the we were there when energy levels were the highest.\n\nIt did seem a tad pricey (yes, I know it's Boston) and I suspect there are other Beantown venues where I could have enjoyed that meal for somewhat less. But not to an extent that would prevent me from returning.

Ocean Prime in Manhattan is my absolute favorite restaurant in the states however Ocean Prime in Boston is possibly the worst. The food was far less than subpar. The hostesses, on a night so cold there was snow on the ground and the Charles River was frozen, were dressed as though they were moonlighting as street walkers. The appetizers of deviled eggs and crab cakes were so bad we left after finishing our wine without ordering an entree. The bill was $236 for a party of three. Needless to say we won't be back and will certainly not recommend this location to anyone. To compete in Boston, this Ocean Prime better step up its game.

This was my first time going to Ocean Prime and I must say it was an amazing experience. I decided to go with this restaurant because I absolute love seafood. They did not disappoint on any level either. My server was funny, charming and gave myself and my guest the right amount of attention. I didn't have a drink but I can say that the bar scene was very vibrant so this is also a great late night spot to throw a few back with the fellas or even that special someone. OK anyway back to the task at hand let me tell you first about the decor of the establishment. I entered and said ok ummm is this magical or something because it was so how do I say, classy, elaborate and vibrator all in one. Once I got over the amazing visuals i started to scan mmm better yet simply enjoy the menu. i mean they have steak, seafood, both lobster and crab which is always a plus. I sat there debating on what to get, so i did what I usually do and asked my guest what they were going to go with. They quickly replied clam chowder which from what I was told turned out to be simply amazing. Myself I decided to go with the crab cake and sweet corn. The corn melted in my mouth and took me to a place I haven't been in I want to say early 06 in the golden years. Main course I guess chose steak and shrimp scampi but were what you might call lavish type food but what do I know I'm just a regular guy that loves food, don't know much about the lavish life ok I do hahaha. Oh yes back to the subject I went with the twin lobster tails for my main course. Oh my my I almost went into the kitchen to shake the chefs hand for a job well done. The warm butter on the side and asparagus to go with the lobster made it a perfect meal. As I stated before however I am a foodie so I made it to desert as well. I went with a slice of chocolate cake joined with chocolate ice cream oh soooo good. My guest chose to go with sorbet but then decided 3 scoops might be to much our amazing server said go with just one scoop ok

Great spot for a business dinner, special occasion or just having a drink in the bar. For a Wens night, the bar (very good live band playing) and dinning room were both jumping with activity and festive parties.\n\nThe service, food and atmosphere were all worth the prices, which were not cheap but were in line with other highend restaraunts in Boston. Overall, I would and plan to go back in the very near future.

Outstanding service (Kevin was among the best waiters we've ever had in Boston) and loved the valet app, which makes for a quick exit after dinner, especially in the cold. Vibrant bar scene mixes nicely with intimate dining but the weekend crowd was very alive with a pleasant noise level. Definitely energetic for a steakhouse which is a big plus (not stuffy at all). The steaks themselves and desserts were excellent (blue cheese crust is awesome!). The salad was just mediocre and the temperature on an appetizer was merely warm but those were the only issues and they were minor. Although it was on the higher price end, the atmosphere/staff made up for it, and did a lot to recognize a special occasion. Overall, Ocean Prime is a great restaurant and we'd definitely go back.

Tested out a new Seaport offering this evening...really wanted to like it. Would sum up by saying Ocean Prime is a Del Frisco wannabe...aka...a Del Frisco price (or more!)....but sadly, without the Del Frisco experience. Room is dark, with low ceilings. Layout is awkward with the bar impeding access to the the reception area, restrooms and the dining room (have to fight your way through the bar traffic to get to the dining room and restrooms). Food was barely warm (potatoes and other sides clearly sitting awhile under a heat lamp), steak was under cooked (as in raw) and had to be sent back (paying attention to the temperature is the cardinal rule if you're charging $50 for a steak). Service was friendly and attentive...and apologetic, but this was a small bright spot in an otherwise very disappointing outing. We will not be returning. If you want an excellent steakhouse experience and don't mind paying for it, stick to Del Frisco in the Seaport or Boston Chop in the South End...both offer excellent food, ambiance and service...and a superior value.

Had the occasion to pick from a number of top notch spots in the Seaport District. Having been to most of them, thought it was time to try out yet another steakhouse chain. This selection was a great choice. We found the service, atmosphere and the food were all worth the trip.

The food was memorable, much more so than the other expensive steak house chains in the same location and as stated the price point was comparable.

The food was basic steak and fish house, but it was really good. Nothing that's setting the world on fire with creativity, but I enjoyed every tasty morsel. Sometimes you want solid food without a lot of fuss. The place is huge, and loud and I felt like I was in Vegas. The bar scene is terrifying - a complete meat market, you could practically smell the sexual energy and we couldn't get out of there fast enough. Unless you're a single mid-30s straight person who wants a singles bar vibe, you would probably want to avoid the bar. But the dining room, for all its corporate sheen, provided a delicious meal that I'd happily have again.

Overall the experience was nice but with one major flaw. I ordered fish my friend ordered steak medium plus which came out very rare. The steak had to go back 2x to get it to a medium (never mind the plus). I finished my dinner before her steak came back at an acceptable temperature. Her side sat on the table going cold while she waited. The staff seemed to brush over the fact that we ate our dinners separately which although pleasantly done ultimately unacceptable. I don't think I'll return until they have things timed better and figured out how to get a fish dish and a steak dish to the table correctly cooked so their guests can dine together.

This is the first time I had been to Ocean Prime in the Seaport. It was to celebrate graduation of my daughter from business school. I thought twice about going there because there was no harbor or ocean views, but it was the only place that we could get the reservation time I needed - very early. I am very glad that we went! The food was spectacular. I have special dietary needs - no salt/oil - and they not only accommodated me, but my meal was outstanding! Among us we had the biggest steak, swordfish, and the special of the day - a haddock creation. Everyone raved, especially my ornery son who had the steak topped with a blue cheese sauce. He said it was the best thing he had ever eaten. We also ordered a dessert to share - the chocolate/peanut butter cake. I am not a peanut butter lover, but this gourmet item was beyond good - it was heavenly with a light peanut butter ganache in the center. It is more than enough for 2+ people, but being the dessert lover that I am, I could eat the whole thing myself! As we were leaving, live music was just starting in the bar area. I have no idea about the bar scene, late-night, lunch or brunch options as we were there for a 4:15 reservation on a Thursday, but I can summarize by saying that this was an outstanding choice for our celebration and we will be returning. Forgot to mention, because of the celebration we were having, the waiter comped us the dessert.

The food was all delicious. However, the service was that of a low end chain restaurant. We were seated and immediately received water. Our waitress showed up 5 minutes later, ran through the specials then said she'd be back for our order. 20 minutes later she took our order. No bread was offered although we saw other tables getting basket's of rolls. The tuna tar tar appetizer was amazing. However, halfway through it, our soups came out. A food delivery person (not our waitress) wedged the soups to the side of our appetizer plates and, walked away! Did not ask if he should wait and keep the soup warm while we finished our first course. It just really bothers me when you're paying top dollar for a elegant meal to have ignorant service. Funny thing was, after we ate our soup we waited about 20 minutes for our entrees to come out. Our waitress had no control or interest in serving us properly. We also had a bottle of wine, after the first round, she never came back to pour the wine. It wasn't horrible just below the standard one would expect when paying a little over $100 per person for dinner. We had a group of 6 cackling women next to us which also detracted from the experience.

I dined here with a couple of friends and when we arrived we were immediately ushered to a very roomy booth toward the back of the restaurant. We all wound up ordering seafood - I chose the Sea Scallops with risotto, one of my friends chose the Florida Grouper, and the other friend ordered the Blackened Snapper - and each of us was very pleased with what we were served. I also enjoyed my Ocean Prime House Salad and my Cucumber Gimlet. We all agreed that our entrees were superb and that the Chophouse Corn was some of the best tasting corn any of us has ever ingested. The Sauteed Button Mushrooms were tasty but unexceptional and my friends enjoyed their order of Jalapeño Au Gratin which they both agreed was quite spicy. But by far the biggest hit of the evening was the Bubbles and Berries cocktail. We were immediately impressed by the presentation and very pleased by the flavor. My friends were so intrigued by it that they posted a video of it to their FB page. By the end of the meal we were all too full to order dessert but we did catch a glimpse of a serving of the Ten Layer Carrot Cake as it passed our table. Our waitress extolled the virtues of the carrot cake and the Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie but none of us could have eaten one more bite. One of my friends commented that it's the first time in a very long time that she's seen Baked Alaska on a restaurant menu. By the end of the evening we all agreed that Ocean Prime is well worth another visit.

We had a wonderful experience. Upon arrival we mentioned it was our anniversary and we were immediately offered complimentary champagne. Greg, who sat us was so courteous but not overly so. I also liked that he asked if he could leave the wine list with us; I've never noticed that before. Antonio and Jason were our servers and were fabulous and never rushed us (we waited a bit longer than expected to order our meals but that's only a minor criticism). We ordered yummy cocktails, salads, snapper, filet, and sprouts. Everything was delectable as was the warm bread. We were also treated to a huge anniversary dessert and when I asked if we could take home what we couldn't eat, it was packed up so nicely with a note about how to rewarm the bread. Bottom line, the place is expensive but worth it for a special occasion. They treated us as though we were regulars even though it was our first time. But it won't be our last.

This was our first, and probably last time dining at Prime. The music was too loud and a bit too much 'pop' for the setting. I expected nice classical or live classical music. For the prices we were paying for cocktails and steak, the setting should fit. \n\nOur waiter, though well-educated on the food and very capable, hovered too much. We were out to enjoy a nice meal, sans kids, and here we were desperately trying to avoid eye contact. I mean, it's great that we weren't left wanting. But on the other hand, it was frustrating to us. \n\nThe food was pretty good, a bit heavy on the salt. Not worth the price they were charging though.

Special occasion for my wife's birthday. Offered birthday greeting when we were arrived with the hostess and our waiter, a good start. We choose the appetizer of Crab legs, both Rock and King, and not disappointed. Dinner on the other hand, was a nice try. My wife had the surf and turf with both the tenderloin and lobster tail cooked well. Unfortunately, my Chilean Sea bass was not so successful. The initial plate of fish was so tough that I could not cut it with a knife and it had little flavor and I sent it back. Management did come over to apologies and my wife shared her meal with me so we were fine as we waited for the new piece of fish to be served. The second piece was acceptable with more flavor than the first. At the same time our waiter was given a large party (10 people) and we were suddenly in service waste land with him working to cover the large party and others were left to tend to us. I understand the whole deal with the larger party but we've already had some issue and felt that we were left for others to handle. Because of her birthday, they gave us a wonderful dessert but never asked us if we wanted coffee until I flagged our waiter down. According to my wife, some stalls in the women's bathroom were without toilet paper and the restaurant floor was wet and slippery as we watched people grab onto others so as not to fall. Overall it was a place if you wanted to be seen with a great, fun crowd but with that said, for what you're paying for dinner, you have better choices in Boston's Seaport area.

Had a reservation, but had to wait over 20 minutes to be seated. Nice table; waiter was late to get the orders. Each time we ordered something, he would disappear for half an hour before showing up. Rather than explaining the specials, he kept telling us about all of his favorite food and desert, without us even asking him! Had the seafood tower appetizer, which was great, then we had to sit and look at the empty shells for 20 minutes, until I had to get up and find a manager to get someone to clean our table! The waiter never showed up to ask for the second round of drinks. Had to ask for bread and butter and lime for our water 3 times before a boss boy finally brought it.

Usually I let people decide for themselves and time will tell for restaurants focusing on attracting the scenery rather than the food. I thought the food was mediocre at best. I started out with oysters, shrimp cocktail and crab. They selection of oysters were limited and the crab the crab and shrimp cocktail were okay. The crab was not a 'Joe's Stone Crab' experience and the shrimp cocktail was run of the mill. For my entree I had the salmon and I found it was almost inedible. The drinks were good but my drink was not made to order. \n\nOn the other hand, the service was very good. The waiter was attentive and always checked with us to make sure everything was going okay. The water glasses were always kept full and the area around the table was clean. \n\nThe restaurant is a scene...lots of beautiful young women and older men at the bar.\n\nThis restaurant could become a distant memory if the food doesn't improve because the young crowd will become tired of laying out $250-$300 for dinner for 2.

I have been to Ocean Prime previously for lunch. It is an entirely different world from lunch to dinner on a Thursday night. My first dinner there with friends was not positive. The air conditioning in the building was out and while wait staff were informative , they were not apologetic. They blamed it on the building and poor installation of the A/C units. In such an expensive restaurant you would think they would have covered a dessert or drink. Major inconvenience. While it is not their fault , I will call beforehand for a reservation I have this week for lunch. If A/C is still out. I will have to book elsewhere.

I think Ocean Prime is a higher end chain. Restaurants in Tampa, New York and now Boston. As it is new restaurant at Seaport it will take some time for people to discover it. I attended a business lunch and so the dining room on a Monday was empty. The bar looked like it was well stocked and designed well. I would imagine this restaurant will be popular on a Friday/Saturday night with the 35+ crowd. Food was well prepared and service was excellent. I will check Ocean out for dinner soon and will write a more comprehensive review.

Our group of 5 were disappointed. We were literally jammed into a table that was abutting a table of 16 as well as another table of 5. Servers couldn't even make their way around our table without having go all the way around the room dodging other tables. While our server was kind and apologetic for the crowded atmosphere and even tried to move us to another table (unsuccessfully), she was also handling several other tables along with the huge party of 16 ALL BY HERSELF. So to say the least, their staffing plan for a Friday night was not very good; service was very slow. That being said, our server was as attentive as she could be and even comp'd our desert at the end of the night. Food was very good, and wine list was extensive. Unfortunately, it couldn't make up for the bad experience; and while we know that steak houses are normally very loud compared to other types of restaurants, this one was off-the-charts loud; so much so that we were actually yelling across the table to have a conversation, probably like everyone else, which just added to the problem. Probably would only go back on a dull, Sunday afternoon, hoping that it wasn't so boisterous.

I would highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion or just a night out. My husband and I could be rather picky at times but on both occasions we could find nothing to pick on. The service was great, the food was delicious, the sides were huge, the drinks were excellent, not to mention the large size portions of dessert. The atmosphere is cozy and modern. The bar is always busy and around 8:00 there is a nice little live band that plays. I really haven't stuck around to hear them but instead enjoyed a nice walk on the waterfront to digest all the delicious food.

This was one of the best experiences I've ever had at a restaurant. No wonder the 4.5 out 5 rating was right, but I would give that a 5 out of 5. The service was impeccable. They would always make sure we were satisfied with the food we've gotten and their recommendations on drinks was stunning. We got this blueberry champagne drink, and it was phenomenal. The food was finger-licking good. The swordfish was tender and the juices were right on the money. My date enjoyed her calm chowder and loved her steak. Plus this was the first time my date ever ate at the Seaport. She was from Britain and she loved the atmosphere. It was nice enough to converse and just enjoy one another company.

Great dining experience for a family birthday celebration. Very attractive space; the best thing about it is that the tables are spaced so that you don't feel like you are on top of other diners and, as a result, the dining room feels quieter than many other newer Boston restaurants. Great customer service experience, from the valet to the host check in. Our waiter, Levi, was absolutely superb, professional and made great suggestions without ever being obtrusive. Don't miss the 'Berries and Bubbles' cocktail. Food was excellent, completely in line with other similarly priced venues. Steaks were exceptional and done exactly as ordered. Seafood was fresh; the only exception being the oysters which were very good but not exceptional. Don't miss the chocolate/peanut butter cake for dessert. We will absolutely be back.

We have dined often at high end steak houses and are very picky. Ocean Prime was sure to impress! We were greeted with a friendly hostess and were seated right away. Had the Berries and Bubbles cocktail - a must try if you like interesting cocktails. It was a little tart and a little sweet. For an app we had the tuna tartare and crab cakes and both were delicious. For dinner we both had steaks but the gold winner of the evening was the prime rib. Not only was it cooked to perfection but the meat was extremely tender. It was nothing less than perfect. The side dish of creamed spinach was wonderful too.\n\nWhile the entire experience was outstanding, our server was amazing although that's how it should be when you pay premium prices. He does deserve the extra praise for exceeding the expectation.\n\nHighly recommend this restaurant.

My wife and I went to Ocean Prime, for the first time, before a concert recently. We had a 6:00 reservation, arrived about 15 minutes early, and were seated immediately. This was on a Friday so clearly they get a late crowd - when we arrived the room was about 20% full, when we left about an hour later it was about half full.\n\nThe food was excellent and portion sizes were good. Our waitress and everyone else was very friendly, helpful and attentive but not annoyingly so. The dining room was fairly quiet - it was a little noisier and much more crowded in the bar but that's a separate room so the noise doesn't spill over into the dining room much.\n\nI think they have an outdoor dining area which we would have selected had it not been a little cool out - being right on the waterfront it surely has a great view.\n\nThe cost for our meal - two people with no alcohol or dessert - was about $125 which is not exactly bargain-basement but I think was reasonable for the size and quality of the dinner, especially given the location.

I wanted to like this place and was really excited for a special night out with my daughter but it was disappointing. The prices are quite expensive for what you get. I have no objection to paying a lot for a meal but I expect a lot. For $32 I got two crabcakes that seemed to have been warmed rather than freshly made. My daughter got chicken which was decent except that it was again very expensive and nothing special (served a la carte). Our service was ok, our waiter seemed indifferent to us, maybe because we weren't going to be a $400 tab...but that is of course pure speculation.

Tripadvisor reviews basically pointed to Del Frisco's and Ocean Prime as the two best steakhouses downtown. I was in town for a convention so I was able to hit both places. Ocean Prime's restaurant had a great atmosphere and I sat in the restaurant area. It was like 10pm at night so it wasn't overly busy and was fairly quiet. The wedge salad was fantastic. Next came the 8oz filet and that was tasty as well. The black truffle mac and cheese was awesome but honestly too much for 1 person to eat as a side. So bring a friend for those sides! I would highly recommend Ocean Prime if you're looking for a nice steak dinner with a wonderful atmosphere.\n\nExtra context for the comparison: \n\nThe big difference between Del Frisco's and Ocean Prime is that Del Frisco's filet has a much stronger taste in terms of marinade/butter. It makes for a great steak that melts in your mouth with some serious flavor. Ocean Prime's steak was a bit more natural in flavor and makes you appreciate the high quality steak they prepare at your perfect temperature. They are each quite different and both in a good way. I would say you can't go wrong at either place. :)

Mediocre at best and very expensive. Our waiter checked in on us every 3 minutes and it was annoying. He also gave the same spiel (about him and his family, past work experience,etc) to the people on the left and right of us so we heard it over and over again. He forced the Dynamite Roll on us which tasted like fried, frozen shrimp with freezer burn. The tuna tartar app was good but both the steak and the halibut dinners were just OK at best. The creamed spinach tasted like it had a pound of salt dumped into it. The hostess was chatting with 2 other girls at the front desk and it took her about 5 minutes to look up. The wine list was unimaginative and most of the mid level wines were things you could buy at Costco for $10. I will not rush back.

Thoroughly enjoyed everything about Ocean Prime...the food, the drinks and the service was great. Never felt rushed. The dessert (10 layer carrot cake was delicious). It was a hot night and we took sweaters into the restaurant in case the air conditioning was on....at the end of the dinner we decided to walk around Boston for awhile but didn't want to carry the sweaters.....the Valet young man was kind enough to run our sweaters to our car. So everything from the big things...food, service etc....to the little things (running those sweaters to the car so we wouldn't have to carry them around all night) was excellent....Will be back!!!

We went to the new Ocean Prime in the Seaport District for lunch. Received some positive feedback so I decided to bring my team there for lunch. I ordered the creamy clam chowder as a starter and the Sushi Salad (which is California Rolls (8 pieces) with a salad) as my lunch. The chowder was just okay, served warm. The sushi was just average, more like supermarket sushi. Service was subpar for this high end restaurant. He never came by to check on us after the runner delivered our lunches. I had to flag him down to ask for soy sauce for my sushi. He took our plates without asking if we're done. He didn't ask if anyone wanted coffee before handing me the check. I think better training is needed for this waiter. We received better service from the bus person. Save your money and go to Morton's instead.

I read that this place was relatively new and still working the kinks out and that was clearly evident last night. The place has a nice bar area, which was busy although it is fairly small. We met up and grabbed a drink and subsequently took our table in the back eating area. Service was slow and I got a major run-around when it came to ordering the wine for the table. They were out of several of the selections, allegedly due to the busy VD weekend (and this was the following Wednesday evening). However, I got the impression they were trying to get me to 'climb the ladder' and order wines priced over $100 per bottle. Regardless, we had a good time and the food was good but I will not go back again until I hear that they have gotten their act together.

Possible one of the worst meals in Boston. After confirming in the afternoon and letting the hostess know we may be a touch late, we walked in the door 17 minutes after our reservation time, partially due to the backed up valet. We were told that they give away the tables after 10-15 minutes and maybe they could find us a table. 25 minutes later we were seated at a very large table..we were a party of 5. After requesting a gluten free menu from our server, we finally got one. OK food. Wedge salad, came smothered in bottle dressing with a few sprinkles of overripe blue cheese..the kind that is so old it's growing little hairs. The Tuna tartare..best part of dinner had to be uncovered from a blanket of creme fraiche. @ diners ordered Chilean Sea Bass…both pieces and dinners looked totally different and one was cold. The steaks were OK , one came medium after being ordered blood rare. They were served without garnish on cheap white plates. The sides…creamed spinach was more like spinach soup, the sauteed mushrooms were bland and the Loaded potato cam covered in sour creme.\n\nDo yourself a favor and skip Ocean Prime!!

I also felt that our waiter was a bit more preoccupied with another table of 8 or so and did not provide us with the same level attention as the waiters for neighboring tables did.

I was looking for a place that could fit up to 9 people and this place was it. I wanted somewhere nice and very classy and Ocean Prime definitely lives up to that. I had requested in a note while i was making my reservation that it was a graduation party and that it would be nice if they chose a nice table for me. And they delivered. We were tucked near the back of the restaurant, a closed off room with a nice fire place. It was so intimate and so nice to just be with friends and family and not confined with the busy crowd throughout the restaurant. The service was A+ and the food was to die for.

This is a great upscale, versatile restaurant. The bar is a great hopping spot to meet friends for drinks or to grab a drink while waiting for your table. It has a nice drink menu, the bartenders are very attentive, and although you can eat at the bar, we prefer to sit at a table. The bar is not as conducive to eating as, for example, The Capital Grille or Abe & Louie's. Maybe it's the live music at Ocean Prime - Thursday thru Saturday in the lounge area - which makes it a little too happening to enjoy a nice meal with conversation. At least that's what my husband and I have found. Everything on the menu is DELICIOUS so it won't disappoint & we love going back to the lounge for an after dinner drink...or two...to cap off the night. The music is always great, the bar lively, and doesn't have the 'pick-up-joint' feel like other restaurants such as Del Frisco's. It's a great, happening, classy spot that I'm sure will remain a major fixture in Boston for years to come. Reservations highly recommended, too!

I took my girlfriend of 3 years and her parents here to celebrate her graduation from college. I chose the restaurant thinking it would offer a view of the water, but even with the window seat, all we had a view of was a building that was on the other side of the restaurant and Whiskey Priest, the bar next to the restaurant that is all but romantic in ambiance. The service was like that of a bipolar girlfriend, one who is amazing over the phone and terrible in person. I requested the restaurant to coordinate for a bouquet to be at the table, the day of the dinner, Mother's Day. They fulfilled the request with a beautiful arrangement. Now, in person, when we arrived, the receptionist was not welcoming and her tone of voice carried attitude, one which said she was busy and didn't have time to address any questions, even if that question was whether the restaurant had a waterfront view. The hostess was actually very kind. The servers lacked attention to detail as my glass remained empty for extended periods of time, numerous times throughout the night. The food was splendid and everything was cooked to order. If you don't like flat-iron steaks, do not get the steak here. Seafood was very fresh: oysters, shrimp, sea bass, etc. The food carries this restaurant.

As with many of the restaurants on the waterfront, the food and atmosphere was excellent, as was the service at the bar. However, I'm not sure I would choose to pay $56 for a steak instead of $35 somewhere else. Not sure the quality of the food was any better than other, slightly more affordable steakhouses.

Food was excellent. Drinks were excellent especially the bubbles and berries. But the attention to detail lacked. From the moment we sat down, we felt rushed. My water glass had palpable 'stuff' on it that I could scrape with my fingernail. My 1st cocktail glass had a crack large enough in it that the drink was leaking out of it. We ordered a dozen oysters and 11 came on the tray. I had to give the busboy my menu since the waiter didn't collect it. For a party of 6, it took about 5 minutes for everyone to be served. The waiter spilled my cocktail wile pouring it. Separately, I could overlook any one of these issues but having them all occur during one dinner, I can't. These issues were all remedied, after I pointed them out, but having spent the amount of money we did, the majority of these issues should never have made it to the table in the first place.

Top 5 best meals of my life. Started with amazing drinks (the Bubbles and Berries does not disappoint), onto crab (which they happily served heated instead of chilled) and oysters. The main dishes: husband ordered the night's special: surf and turf- filet and stuffed lobster tail. Both amazing. My entree was the sea bass- cooked and served to perfection. Server Dana was on point and was happy to guide us. We will be returning soon!!\nNote- we were seated in the small backroom. We always eat early- sat at 5:30. When we left around 8, the main dining room was VERY noisy. I will rebook in the backroom as the noise level was deafening.

The service and ambiance were great but the food just didn't hold a candle to the other name steak houses. Del Frisco's remains number one for Boston and Rosaria's in Saugus for the burbs. Food prep was just not great. Everything was over salted and buttered, killing any hope of flavor to any of the dishes. First time in years, I actually complained about the cocktails - First cocktail was on the rocks instead of straight up, loaded with ice and lime juice. Second drink was killed by what seamed like olive juice and not a top shelf vodka.

We arrived at the restaurant on a cool night and were wearing coats. No one offered to take our coats nor could we see a place to hang them. Luckily we were shown to a booth so we could put them on the seats. I wouldn’t have been surprised if this had been a mid-priced restaurant but I expected better from a restaurant with the prices I had seen on line. We were seated promptly and the service would be rated terrific if we had been at a mid-priced establishment–prompt, pleasant and professiona. However it not quite as smooth as we had expected. We enjoy gimlets but had never had a cucumber gimlet that was listed on the drink menu so we started with those. We agreed it was a great variation. Because we’d had a cocktail we just wanted wine by the glass and were pleased with the large and well-chosen wine list. The food was outstanding. We both had Artic char and split a house salad. The char was cooked perfectly and the accompanying quinoa mix was interesting and delicious. The décor and ambience were what you might see anywhere in the country. The formula drum lights, indirect lighting and dark furniture were present. We both agreed that, for $100.00 each plus $20 for valet parking ($18.00 and a question about “Did we want change?”) we expected more in the way of ambience, attention to things such coat checking, and a quieter room. The restaurant is close to the Conference and Exhibition Center and so there were groups of people coming from there and that probably added to the noise level but not to the atmosphere for a quiet place to enjoy conversation and fine dining. All in all we decided that, while the food was great, there are other restaurants in the Boston area where, in addition to excellent food, we could have enjoyed better ambience and received better value for our money. If you’re not looking for a fine dining experience but want excellent food and don’t care about cost, this would be a fine choice.

Two words come to mind - hospitality & consistent! We have dined at Ocean Prime several times and last night was another night of perfection. We opted to sit in the bar, they have live music which makes it fun & a great atmosphere for people watching. Our server was great & very knowledgeable we have had Jess a few times and she is great. She'll give you the full rund down on everything from the ingredients in the drinks at the bar to the feature fish the chef cut that day. It's great because in the bar they typically rush you and we never felt rushed or in the way, the service was the same as sitting in the more relaxed & quiet dining room. We've had Alison & Derek in the past & each experience, although different was consistent with that great level of service. Aside from the great people the steaks are the best I've had in Boston & they have a full list of accessories to dress them up. My favorite is Au Poivre SO DELICIOUS. The sides are insane too truffle mac, au gratin, brussel sprouts with caremelized onions, its a fail not to get it all. Make sure to save room for dessert they have an in house baker!!! We always get the chocolate peanut butter pie - you will wish you knew me to thank me after that suggestion. It's so good that sometimes I order just the dessert for take out on my way home from work. Thanks for keeping me chubby!

I went to Ocean Prime on February 14th. A few friends of mine went here when they first opened in Boston and it still being fairly new, I decided to give it a shot as well. I decided to come here to celebrate Valentine's Day with my date but also my birthday. It is very nice when walking inside. It wasn't at all too busy or crowded. We got seated right away. Not too shortly our server, Alan, greeted us right away and got us a glass of ice water to start. He also brought out some pretzel type bread that was very tasteful. He came back to take our drink orders and we were contemplating on wine still; he recommended to try their 'Berries & Bubbles' cocktail, and no regrets at all. It was actually bubbling and worth snap chatting! It was a very delicious drink and a must try! For appetizers we had the Surf & Turf, which came with two pieces of scallop and shredded ribeye. We also got two orders of Creamy Clam Chowder, when we only should've gotten one because they served in such big bowls but we didn't mind because it was the best clam chowder I ever tasted. It was so creamy and tasteful. For entrees I got the 16 oz Ribeye and my date had the Kansas City Strip; both were very tasteful and juicy and cooked the exact way we wanted! Now this is the part that surprised me, I didn't tell the Alan it was my birthday because I hate the attention, but he must've over heard my date and I talk about it, because when we ordered dessert which was the Baked Alaska it came with a 'Happy Birthday!' Wow, what a surprise that was! The dessert was delicious, it was too bad we were too full and couldn't finish much of it. It gets even better. When we got the bill, Alan wished me a happy birthday and he told me our appetizers and dessert was comped! This place was just getting better and better! It was a wonderful gesture from him and it was very much appreciated! My experience goes beyond a 5 star experience andI will surely be coming back.

From the moment you arrive to the moment you leave, this is dining at its best. Great service, excellent management and most important of all, great food. Love the bar and the band too!

Our waitress Dana was absolutely fantastic. From the moment we sat down to the moment we left she was nothing but perfectly attentive when we needed her. She was also wonderful about allowing us the time we wanted to relax a bit and enjoy our drinks, apps, dinner and desert. Dana was extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu from the cocktails & wine to the various appetizer and dinner options. I cannot say enough good things about my first experience at Ocean Prime. I will absolutely be raving about it to others and coming back very soon!

I love this restaurant! I have dined here twice and both times the food, wine, drinks and service were fantastic. One of my favourite restaurants in Boston.

The crab cakes and scallops were delicious. The crab cakes weren't hot enough and they graciously took it off our bill.

We went in the middle of the holiday week so it wasn't too busy which we expected. We arrived early (no traffic) and sat at the bar. The waitress was very friendly. We got 2 Berry and Bubbles which were great. My husband got a Manhattan and said it was made perfectly, and he is picky. The truffle popcorn was a nice touch.\nDinner was wonderful Oysters and calamari for apps, steaks and trout for dinner. For dessert we shared a Baked Alaska and carrot cake. Both were delicious.\nThe manager is friendly and welcoming. \nI bet this place will be awesome in the summer.

Let's start off by saying my wife and I dined here on New Years Eve! Service was outstanding. I enjoyed the surf and turf which was an 8oz Filet and some crab legs. Steak was just OK but not seasoned very well. Crab Legs were amazing. My wife had the Chilean Sea Bass which the waiter recommended as Ocean Primes signature dish. The fish itself was over cooked and very dry. The white truffle butter sauce which accompanied the fish was just a butter sauce as there was no presence of white truffle. As far as the ambiance goes- the atmosphere was very chic. Being that it was NYE the noise level seemed to rise as the night went on. The music choices played, however may have not been the best choices made if it involves cursing and you still have family's dining out with their children. As for my wife and I- it didn't bother us to much as we enjoyed the music but looking around and seeing other guests faces probably not so much for them.

Awesome food, we loved our steaks and sides ( garlic mashed, lobster mashed, and truffle mac and cheese) the deserts were also amazing. ..10 layer carrot cake, blueberry lemon cheesecake, and creme brule. Yum!

We go out for a special family holiday dinner every year. Christmas happens to be the birthday of one of our daughters. The food was amazing, with generous portions. Our server Dana, was awesome and really knew her stuff. We had calamari, sushi, wedge salad, filet, scallops, oysters, sea bass and crab cakes. A couple mixed drinks and some great wine. Truly a special meal and best of the year.

Great!!Great!! Had the steelhead trout and it was every bit as good the best I've had in the Northwest. Great ambiance and reasonable prices for what you get. Definitely going again. Try it!!

I dined at this new restaurant last week with three others. The ambiance was quite nice, the interior was well decorated and the service from the hostesses to the wait staff was great. The food, on the other hand was pretty bad. I had a monkfish dish that was extremely salty and basically swimming in broth. We ordered several sides for the table and they were unremarkable. What was most bizarre was the cappuccino. When it was served, the foam was a meringue like texture, we showed the waitress and she was shocked so she replaced them....... They came back with the same meringue like substance and subsequently removed them from table and tab. We were very disappointed.

They did not honor our reservation. Made us wait 40 minutes after our reservation to be seated. Will not go back.

Very good food and ambiance. However, it was very noisy and hard to maintain a conversion. Also, a late addition in table was left standing next to the table for a long time. He had to get his own chair. Service needs improvement to achieve excellence as expected for the type of restaurant.
