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.

Went for Easter brunch. So disappointed. Five items offered off of menu and they called that brunch!!!! What a waste!!! Either have a real full brunch or don’t advertise that you do

If was expensive but extremely worth it. The filet was top notch and the scallop entree was the most tender I’ve ever had. I would highly recommend Ocean Prime to anyone looking for a high end restaurant

My bff and I had a girls night out. We had a reservation but came early, grabbed a bar stool and ended up having dinner at the bar. The service was decent, the food was excellent and the band was phenomenal (we thought it might be too loud but it wasn't)

We had one evening (a Saturday night) in Boston and decided to try Ocean Prime for a nice dinner.

Both of us had a filet mignon with some additions (Oscar style for one, brie and mushroom on the other). The steak was tender, flavorful, and cooked perfectly with great sear on each side. It was a perfect match to the vegetables (a twice-baked potato). Alain's excellent recommendation for a wine to pair with the meal put the finishing touches on a very well-prepared meal. This was then capped off with a scrumptious creme brulee.

A wonderful dining experience overall! Derek and Alain provided great service.

The only potential negative to the entire experience was the loud music that made quiet conversation difficult. Otherwise, the combination of great food and service in a trendy Boston neighborhood makes Ocean Prime an excellent choice for a great meal. We wouldn't hesitate to return

One of the best places ever to have dinner. Soups and salads were good. Steaks and lobster were to die for. Chris, our waiter was as good as they come. It was an expensive dinner but worth every penny. Desserts were awesome too!

Once in a while you will stumble upon a restaurant that is captivating..this is one of those places. From the moment we arrived until the final goodbye there is nothing that could have been improved upon.

The food was fabulous with creative dishes and flexibility in our quirky requests! We were a party of four all with a variety of tastes There was nothing that was limiting, and everything was beyond delicious! Everything is made fresh to order, and it shows!

We had a server (Lisa, the kindergarten teacher!) who was so fun energetic and attentive. She knew the menu, could make recommendations and all of her suggestions were individualized. She made the experience extra memorable!

Definitely will return and def ask for her table!

Our waiter and busboy were both exceptional and made the evening. And when I made a special request for a birthday, the hostess took care of it perfectly. Food was excellent and they accommodated a vegetarian in our party with a delicious, well thought out entree on par with other meals.
The signature drink, a bubbling steaming brew, was unforgettable. Worth the visit in itself!
My only complaint is the tables were close together and the noise was noticeable. I would have expected more intimate surroundings for this price range.

Our dinner at Ocean Prime was perfect. We had a business meeting with one of our international clients. Coming from Italy, she is used to superb food, so we wanted to make sure she had great choice of Boston food fare. Our dinner was perfect, the food delicious and the attention impecable and very friendly. The wine and bar choices were also very varied and my Hendrick's Gin drink was superbly mixed and served. Also, the valet parking was amazing and easy. They even sent you a text so you can order your vehicle at the time you pay your bill. Getting in and out of the restaurant was a breeze. We will definetely come back and make this establishment one of our go-to restaurants in town.

Excellent food. Our oyster apps , steaks and sides were exceptional. Professional service although we did feel just a bit rushed. Ironically, attentive service can sometimes be perceived that way just through body language and there was just a bit of that going on. We simply ordered when we were ready to order and in the end enjoyed a great meal. When attending again i would make a point to ask for a table (semi-circle bench seating) that was not directly facing the waiters' stand 3ft away. Cool vibe and high end steakhouse!

I enjoyed my meal at Ocean Prime. The atmosphere and service are great. Our server made perfect wine recommendations that paired very nicely with the meal. The Ocean Prime House Salad is delicious. The only negative was that my steak was overcooked. i ordered medium-rare and my steak was served between medium and medium-well. I'm not a send food back person so i just ate it and it was still very good, just not what i ordered.

We went there for my sons birthday. I told them it was his birthday ahead of time. Didnt ask for cake or anything like that. At the end of the meal (which everything waa very salty and couldnt finish because of the over salty taste) they brought a piece of chocolate cake with a candle for his birthday. My son doesnt like chocolate cake so he didnt eat it. Once we got our bill, i looked at it and noticed i was charged $12 for that piece of cake! Not only did he not eat it due to him not liking chocolate, but i never asked for it or ordered it...so why was i charged for it?! Wont go there again thata for sure
