We dined here on business. Great menu. Dry aged wagyu beef was amazing. Jalapeno potatoes were incredible. Truffle picnic eggs great. Staff and service were amazing. Fair corkage fee. Highly recommended.

My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I ate at Ocean Prime in Troy tonight for the first time. My mom had died earlier in the day and I needed to get out of the house. This choice of where to go for dinner turned out to...be the best ever! The food, from appetizer to dessert, was luxuriously scrumptious and the service was impeccable. Was it pricey? Yes. Was it worth it? Yes! Come here for outstanding flavor and service and when you need to be pampered. They comped us two free desserts since it was our first time and we were quite vocal to the servers about our delight in the quality of the food.More

Ambiance is good but the lack of a dress code takes away from the potential elegance. The food and wine list is however excellent.

Last night we celebrated two birthdays which come one day apart at Ocean Prime. The whole experience was extremely satisfying. The food was excellent and the service was first class. Our server Shawniqua was a birthday gift to us. Not only did she provide excellent...service, but we found out what a thoughtful person she was as she described her trip to Guatamala to help deal with the poverty of that country. It was a perfect evening aided by our meeting this lovely person. As an aside, our eighty-five year old friend Dave ate every bit of his salmon after finishing a bowl of onion soup. He hasnt eaten that much in a few years and he very approvingly said how he enjoyed his meal. For that special celebration we highly recommend this well run restaurant. Happy holidays to all.More

The restaurant and service was great as usual. However, I am very disappointed as I purchased 2 gift cards for us. The manager told us they did not work. At first I thought I might have been de-frauded, but I purchased them from the Ocean...Prime site. I don't think the manager did enough to verify them and we ended up paying the full fare. Since i only go once a year as a special occasion, this was upsetting. However, I'm even more upset that no one at corporate has called me back on this. I have left 2 messages. I just emailed as well. At this point, I just want a refund and we will take our business elsewhere.More

We ordered a carry out & were anxious to try this restaurant! We ordered a Caesar salad that was very average. We ordered twin lobster tails. Both our orders had one small lobster tail with a piece of lobster about 2 inches long. . The...second tail was smaller still & the meat was mushy. I’m not sure there was any more than 2 oz of meat, in 2 tails. We expected much better quality, considering the price. They provided 2 rolls- they were the best part of the meal! If I had been dining in & received this meal, I would have sent it back. I can see no reason the ever order from this restaurant, again.More

Came to this restaurant last week and enjoyed it. Yummy food, great service and all the guests were distanced from each other. The teriyaki salmon with rice was delicious and the chocolate peanut butter pie was amazing. The sushi appetizer that had the mango and...avocado were yummy. 😋 Will definitely come back.More

On the day of this visit for lunch, valet parking was complementary. A greeting – along with a request of what type of seating was desired – was received quickly. The dining room that was sat in had a modern décor and many windows. A...bar is located in another room. Only a partial order of “Oysters on the Half Shell” was desired…and fulfilled without any issues. A “6 oz. Filet Mignon” was prepared to order. It tasted great and was coordinated perfectly with other courses of the lunch. When the drinks were replaced, the waitperson asked permission to remove the drinks that were not yet finished. For dessert, it was decided to have the “New York Cheesecake” – a large portion that was delicious. All staff members were donned in formal attire and provided stellar customer service.More

Server Nikki was the best ever in Troy—really cared we had everything we wanted to enjoy a delicious meal. We had trout and salmon dishes, and both were excellent. Good drinks and amazing carrot cake. Food excellent but service exceptional!

This is a nice restaurant, located in a convenient corner, very close to Somerset Mall. Inside is very crowded. Food is expensive. Quality of food is not bad.

It has been years since we dined here. I hosted 2 wedding showers which were really well done. We dined on Valentine’s weekend. The restaurant was very busy. I ordered salad with lobster which was VERY disappointing. Tasted like frozen/thawed yucky texture lobster. Two other...of our party had grouper which was lovely. Last dish was crab cakes which tasted like dirty grill to me. Will not be back.More

Anxious to experience this highly rated seafood/steak house and was impressed with the classy ambiance and decor. Our server was professional but sorely lacked attentiveness. We ordered our initial drinks which took almost 10 minutes to be served. Appetizers (shrimp sauteed with tabasco cream sauce...and lobster bisque) were superb and served timely. We each ordered either filet mignon or the ribeye which were all prepared as requested and very tasty. We also ordered sides (garlic mashed potatoes; asparagus spears & creamed spinach) to share. Sides were good except the asparagus spears ~ they were over-cooked and stringy. Between appetizer and entre' our server was absent (about 15 minutes) ~ no water refills and no refills on our drinks. We then ordered 3 desserts to share (carrot cake; warm butter cake & chocolate peanut butter pie)...chocolate peanut butter pie was the overall favorite while the other 2 were just average. Overall the food was good, not great for such a high-end restaurant, and the service was sorely lacking.More

I organized a group of seven for a business lunch, and chose Ocean Prime because of the numerous options on the menu. The service was fantastic - attentive but not intrusive. I ordered the sea scallops and they were delicious. If you are pretty hungry...though, I would order something else. Several people at our table ordered the tuna salad and said it was awesome. Ask for the back room if it is available. We had our own room and made it easy to have conversation.More
