Our first experience dining at Ocean Prime. We sat at a table in the bar area. Staff was extremely courteous and attentive. We asked for and was served an off the menu scallop appetizer that was exquisite, pan seared served over a mashed potatoe purée and topped with a wine and whole mustard reduction. Followed up with a house salad and surf & turf. The salad was very fresh and the steak and lobster were both prepared perfectly. Recommend anyone looking for a great meal and friendly atmosphere visit Ocean Prime!

Came here before our show in Radio City. I was with my parents and they were so impressed with everything -- the food, the environment, the good service, everything. They could not stop raving about the fresh seafood (they had fresh oysters, lobster tail and crab cakes). Will definitely keep this on my top 10 list.

Visited recently for my birthday and had a lousy experience. I ordered a filet, cooked medium. It came out much closer to rare. I flagged the waiter who at first told me it was "how they do their version of medium." I have been here a few times and never had an issue and was surprised by his response. He begrudgingly offered to take it back. They then threw it back in the oven and brought it back out a little better - but frankly it lost its flavor once it went back in the oven and tasted like a reheated steak. Which i also told the waiter about, but got no reaction. The waiter later told me I was right and that when he got back into the kitchen and saw my steak under the lights he agreed it was rare, but still didn't do anything about it. A good steakhouse would have cooked up a new steak and replaced it or taken it off the bill, Ocean Prime did neither which was very disappointing. I will not return as a result.

We had dinner here before going to the theater. Nice atmosphere and delicious food. Everyone loved each of their dishes. My husband said his filet Mignon was the best he ever had. Sangria wasn't on the menu but the waiter said they would make it for me. Our waiter was very attentive and service was excellent. Be prepared to pay high prices here but it is well worth it.

Everything was excellent once we met our waitress, and the food was delicious.
The only concern was that when we first seated there was clearly a cold draft directly above our table. When we asked one of the gentlemen after being seated if we could move-he appeared to be annoyed with the request and said that there would be a draft anywhere we sat. Since our reservation was at 5 the main dining room was still empty so we moved ourselves to the opposite end and there was no draft at all. The gentleman was not helpful at all and acted as if our request was nuisance. The rest of the staff were wonderful.

This place. Where do I begin? First off, no matter what you order, you MUST try the Bubbles and Berries drink. Thank me later. I’m a dirty martini guy and I ordered one after the bubbles and berries but I was sad that I didn’t order another “fruity drink”. On to the food. We started with a Caesar salad. Just your regular Caesar? Nope. Lettuce, croutons, and I ordered extra anchovies. Sounds like your typical Caesar. But then the kicker. Parmesan crisps are a game changer. Every steakhouse needs to take notice. She was stealing every single one off my plate if I didn’t eat them quick enough. So good! On to steaks. My wife and I each ordered a filet mignon. She got the 6 oz and I ordered the 12 oz bone-in. Both were superb! She ordered hers with the “Oscar” topped with crab and bernaise sauce but it also seemed to have a red wine reduction or demi-glace underneath. I got the au poivre with my bone-in filet. Her sauce was much better than mine. A bit too much pepper for me but still great. The sides were out of this world! Garlic mashed potatoes and bacon creamer spinach were our choices. Both were possibly the best I’ve ever had. For dessert we had the butter cake with hand spun ice cream. Just....just so good. The cake came out hot and the vanilla ice cream was heavenly. Now that you know how good the food is, let’s talk about the service. Perfect. I think that’s the only way to describe it. Alex was our server and she was excellent from start to finish. Always checking in and making sure our experience was second to none. The manger came by to make sure our experience was one to remember. If you’re in NYC, please, trust me, this is a place everyone needs to try at least once.

The guys at the front were excellent when I arrived but I was really disappointed with the service. While the waiter was very kind, he got my meal completely wrong. I asked for no onions with my meal and it arrived with onions. I specifically asked if the Brussels sprouts had anything except olive oil, he said it didn’t and it arrived with onions and some sort of sweet flavoring. If he wasn’t going to remember, I wish he’d written it down. Lastly, the burger lacked flavor. I’ve eaten at Ocean Prime often and was disappointed by yesterday’s visit.

It was my girlfriend’s birthday and they decorated the table. They also brought her a creme brûlée with candle. My girlfriend also has celiac and they were very cautious and careful to not cross contaminate the food. I would recommend the restaurant for anyone who would like a nice meal before a show!

I met my son for a nice dinner. But we were seated next to a loud family with young children. So it was louder than I would have liked. But the food was great as was the service

I've already written.. The restaurant was beautiful. We have one in Boston but have not made it there yet and if your location is anything like that, I won't be going. My meal for two people was close to $300 which I don't mind at all paying but there steaks were TERRIBLE!! Undercooked, full of gristle and fat. Not at all what I was expecting for the price. I will say the chilled crab and deviled eggs were good, however, doubt I'll be back.

Wanted to find a nice restaurant to take my family before heading off to watch the Rockettes at Radio City Hall. Ocean Prime is near the venue and had very good reviews so decided to dine there. It was our first time at an Ocean Prime and it will not be our last. Right from entering the restaurant we were warmly greeted and shown to our table. The main dining room is big with very high ceilings, but the way the room is laid out and lit it had a very ‘cozy’ feeling. We had an earlier reservation so it was quiet when we were seated, but as peak dining time arrived the noise level definitely picked it as the restaurant filled to capacity. It never, however, got excessively loud, always easily able to carry on our conversation. I believe the high ceilings are responsible for that. The service was great. Our server was very attentive and always checking on us. Now all this is great, but if the food isn’t great then that other stuff really doesn’t matter. The food was excellent. And not to mention that this place knows how to mix drinks in addition to an impressive wine list. We had the ocean roll as one of our appetizers and it was absolutely delicious. My wife and daughter had the blackened snapper which was simply amazing. Had I known it was going to be that good I would have ordered it for myself. My bone in filet, however, did not disappoint. Perfectly prepared. All in all Ocean Prime turned out to be better than we were expecting from this last minute reservation. It was the perfect start to what turned out to be a wonderful night in the city.
