I attended dinner with 15 people. They did a good job accommodating our large group and one highly skilled waiter was able to service us all quite well. In general people order their own main dish and then share a variety of side dishes. I had the Chilean Sea Bass based on the waiter's recommendation. It was quite good, as... More

I have been to this restaurant several times, it has never disappointed me. We went for our office Christmas party, lunch time, weather was perfect, ambiance, food, service all were great. I have had sea bass in other restaurants, but it's the best at Ocean Prime.

Been to other OP'S but first visit to this location. Food and service was exceptional. The sea bass was among if not the best I ever tasted. Expensive but worth it.

They have so many options for food. If you make reservations for your birthday they will decorate the table. It's so much fun. They have live music and you can it at the piano. It's very cool. Take a chance and eat here at least once.

Our first visit was great but, sorry to say, it's changed for the worse. Service dropped a notch and food took a nosedive. We come to Tampa every year and Ocean Prime is now out of the rotation.

The food was average (Mitchell's Seafood is better) but this Ocean Prime has lots of ambiance, and the bar and live music is great. The service was appallingly poor for an upscale restaurant like this. Our server (Jared) was, in a word, awful. Now that I read other reviews, I see this is a trend: I should have checked it...

Tampa is growing not only in size but in culture, as well, and Ocean Prime (OP) plays a star role. OP is an establishment that - while exceptional - does not put on airs; while you will see Bentleys, Ferraris, Mercedes etc., nobody will look askance if you Uber it or park your Honda. That is called class. Now to... More

Visiting Tampa for the weekend the husband and I wanted to experience a nicer than normal dinner. We were invited out to Ocean Prime and it was superb! It was a very nice restaurant that you could easily dress up or dress business casual. I'm sure there isn't a dress code but the environment was a very classy kind of... More

Just go. Trust the positive reviews! Long story of why: My husband and I ended our vacation over Thanksgiving by avoiding turkey leftovers and dining here on a Sunday night. My husband had been sick with a cold and I was looking forwarded to completing our time away on a positive note. The Ocean Prime did not disappoint. Our waiter... More

Came straight here from the airport to have late dinner with friends. Sat outside & it was perfect as we were not dressed up. Very expensive...average cost per person could be $75-$100. Appetizers - Calamari & Deviled eggs. Not a big fan of but the deviled eggs were really good...Calamari was ok. Most of us had the Chilean Sea Bass... More
