This was our first time to Ocean Prime. It was a terrific evening. With plates of oysters, scallops with filet mignonette and a tomahawk 32 oz steak. Perfectly cooked. Potatoes at gratin with jalapeño peppers, nicely spiced, not too cheesy with a slightly browned crust. Coffee and the Creme Brûlée topped off our evening.

The waitstaff were excellent. They were prompt and swift. I didn't think the food was that great for the price. There are much better tasting places in Boston at the same price range.

Food was really bad and yet incredibly expensive. Crab cake was at least 3/4 bread. All entrees around $4 for dry fish. Truly you can get so much better food for less.

There is a difference between a confident waiter and an arrogant one. Ours was a tad arrogant. In addition I had to get up twice to find him. At this price point I do expect better service.
Over all we enjoyed our food and drinks.

I had great memories of a visit to Ocean Prime on NYC but was quite disappointed with a recent dinner in Boston. Entering the place, the noise level at the bar had hearing-damaging levels. We got seated at the very far end of the dining room, still it was almost impossible to have a conversation without shouting at each other. Service was good. The food is outrageously overpriced for what it is. We had the scallops and the crab cakes, both were okay but not spectacular. The only winner was the lobster salad, large portion and tasty, for less than half the price of the entrees. Wine list was quite good but again, overpriced. Even on a business expense account I have a hard time justifying coming back here again, it's just not that good.

This was an extraordinarily pleasing way to celebrate our special occasion. Our culinary evening began as soon as we crossed the threshold where we were greeted by smiling professionals in a warm and welcoming fashion. Dining at the Ocean Prime was a class act from beginning to end. It was spellbinding and carried me down memory lane; reminded me how enchanting our wedding day was and conjuring up a dream of new adventures to come.

The food; fresh and flavorful - outstanding! The service; constant and gracious, - outstanding!
Niko and Harry took photos of us and wished us well - outstanding!
In the words of the infamous Schwarzenegger "we'll be back"!

Great place for a quiet business lunch. Old-school dark wood decor, lots of booths to foster conversation, and excellent food. Not inexpensive, but worth it for an occasion. Think of a classic steak house ambiance with more emphasis on seafood.

I've been to Ocean Prime at Seaport a number of times and never been disappointed. This time I had he clam chowder and it was disappointing. very few clams and not a ton of flavor. I'm sure they've done better with this. I'd try again . Rest of meal was great as usual.

One of the worst dining experiences I’ve ever had. We went out to celebrate multiple occasions. The waitstaff in the front took about 5-10 mins to acknowledge that we were standing there waiting to be seated. When I introduced myself for our reservation, the woman smugly told me to wait until someone came over to seat us. They looked like they were bickering amongst themselves which led to the delay. When we were finally seated, we were sat in an area where wait staff had to constantly walk between my chair and a wall which led to them to bumping into me in the middle of dinner and even coming close to dropping food on me and my date. Food quality and ambiance were great (aside from the noise lever) but the service was equivalent to that of a iHop. Super dissatisfied. Would expect a lot more from a place like this in terms of service.
