Inspired by the harbor, the restaurant warm woods, leather booths and live music, creating a sophisticated setting for cocktails, a power lunch or an indulgent dinner.

Stunning settings, a vibrant energy and truly genuine hospitality make OCEAN PRIME Boston an ideal place to socialize, talk business, celebrate and indulge.

Only complaint is that every time we make a reservation, we have to wait for a table for 15-20 minutes.

I came to Ocean Prime to celebrate my 25th birthday and I had a party of 7. Originally I wanted to do a private room to have a more intimate dinner but I decided not to due to the pricing. However, the staff at Ocean Prime gave myself and my party a semi-private booth which was perfect for my dinner. It was intimate enough where we couldn't hear our conversations but still open to the restaurant so we could hear the live music. Lisa was our serve and she was excellent and very friendly. She took care of us and always came by with a smile. The rum punch was delicious as well as the steak and garlic mashed potatoes. They also provided me with a complimentary dessert of choice for my special day. Overall it was a great experience and I will be returning.

Fine dining at its best. Local oysters are some of the best you could ever have. The menu is limited to fish and steak but certainly well done. Staff is superb. Surprised at the younger bar crowd age, was 20 to 30 something. Or maybe l'm just getting old.🤗

The service was good. The wait staff were pleasant and helpful. The food though was very disappointing. The bread was not fresh. The filet mignon was over cooked (I had requested medium rare and it was closer to a medium to medium well done). Had I not been in a rush to get back to office I would have returned it. The lobster bisque was ok but a bit too salty and not as creamy. Clam chowder was the best dish that we got. The food is quite pricey and for the quality we got, it was a major letdown. Our office team keeps a look out for good restaurants in Seaport area for various celebrations- ocean prime is definitely not going to be one of my recommendations.

I'm generally pleased with the food here, but my steak, ordered medium, was medium rare at best. What was supposed to be a warm pink center was still cool and liquidy red. I'm not one to send food back, so I ate it, but I was surprised at how far off it was from medium.

We went for a special occasion. One of many new restaurants in the Seaport District to try. Interesting menu, nice vibe in the room, our server was friendly and efficient. The other server in our area kept bumping into my husband, which was strange because the tables are well spaced out. Not sure what his agenda was.

This was my second visit to this location. Food quality has gone way down even the bread basket was unappealing. It was not a memorable experience. I had salmon and it did not taste fresh. Server was fine but for the menu prices the food should be of much better quality.

The food was spectacular. Even thought of going here for my birthday in a few weeks with my friends, however the service was so poor that my girlfriend and I decided we would not be going back. We were neglected for extended periods of time, at one point waiting a half an hour for the check. It was disappointing because the food was so good, we would have been repeat customers for years to come.

Food and service were superb
We were offered a booth for our reservation and thought that was quite nice until after we were seated realized that we were looking directly at the wait stations
I should have said something but was a quest so tried to make a joke of it

In a restaurant with a check average over $100 there should not be booths facing wait stations
Whoever designed this should be ashamed of themselves as well as the ownership that signed off on them

No one should ever feel like a second rate customer in a restaurant that sells a glass of wine for $27
For punishment those booths should only be used for all owners and corporate officers
And the designers should go back to design school if they ever went to one

The food was what we expected and the service was good, but the noise level of the live band gave this more of a club feel than a fine dining establishment. There was also a table of patrons having a conversation at screaming levels nearby. Difficult to enjoy a meal in such a noisy environment. Way too many other excellent restaurants in the area to consider returning here.

We did think the sides are overpriced. If they are meant to share, they should be bigger than a small soup bowl of vegetables. We bought for 4 and only enough for 2 but cost $13-$15 each. we split 2 steaks between 4 people, salads, sides and drinks for over $400. It was way to expensive. Food was tasty though.
