Great service, waiter knew we were celebrating something, my starting the process to retire. Great steak, fresh oysters and one of the best fish dishes my wife has had in long time. Dining at Ocean Prime was the end of a Perfect Day.

The food was good. It felt like they were trying to turn the table from the moment we sat. The person busing the table demonstrated she could clear the table in one go. What was the rush? The service and setting not up to the food.

I was really excited to celebrate my father’s birthday with a family
Dinner here after having such pleasant experiences in the past. But this time was pretty disappointing. The waiter mistakenly confused our orders so we had to wait a bit longer for the main course. When it came out, it was nothing like what I’ve had in the past - flavorful and exceptionally well-made. I’m not sure if it was rushed bc of the error, but it left a lot to be desired. The waiter and staff were accommodating but given that the meal was supposed to be the highlight of the night, I was rather dissatisfied.

We celebrated my mothers birthday and our waiter was phenomenal. I wouldn’t call him a waiter but more of a host for our event. Food was incredible and overall experience was spectacular. We look forward to going back for my birthday October.

Service was quick, and staff was very friendly. Started off with some cocktails, and they were absolutely fantastic. Looking at the cocktail menus I thought it was a bit overpriced, but after having my first, I had to have another. I had the cucumber gimlet which had the most refreshing garden taste, which you don’t say very often about a cocktail. Then I moved to the berries and bubbles which had an elegant table side presentation; in which dry ice was place in your drink to make your cocktail bubble and smoke which was a one of a kind touch. Was definitely worth the $$$ spent on cocktails. For appetizers the French onion soup really embodies french cuisine, and tastes like you’re in Paris, and the sautéed shrimp was worth being one of the most ( if not the most) expensive appetizer. For dinner we had a filet, and the lamb chop and I was jubilant with my lamb chop, cooked perfect, charred around the edges, and juicy and flavorful in the middle. The filet was also delicious, but I think the plate could have use a bit more garnish to look more full. For dessert we got a (free!!!) cheesecake for my dates birthday, and let me tell you, as a New Yorker, I felt home. The crumble on the bottom, the texture of the cake, and the melt in your mouth aspect of the cheesecake we’re all there. Final bill was well priced and I am thoroughly satisfied with my dinner. Would 8.5/10 recommend.

Great meal and service. While the food prices were very reasonable for the quality I felt that the wine list only catered to the wine connoisseur it would be great to see a couple of selections both red and white in the $40 - 45 range. I would recommend to fries and family but would advise about the wine list

I asked for medium rare. My steak is well done. The took it back and brought a new one that was rare. Everything else was good. They did bring shrimp cocktail to compensate for the steak. By the time my new rare steak came, I was full. The steak pretty much ruined the rest for me. We sat outside. The weather was great. Not a fan of the marijuana that people smoke in MA as they walk down the streets. We are forced to smell it sitting outside whether we liked it or not. Hot butter cake was delicious.

We sat in a smaller dining room which was requested. We love that space. If we sat in the main space I’m fairly certain I wouldn’t like it as much. It just appears too busy and noisy for our liking. Great food and service. We celebrated a special occasion and that was lovely.

Went to celebrate my sons 30th Bday... Noted when reservations was made. Maitre D also acknowledged when we checked in, waiter even asked the table who the birthday person was. That was IT! Not even a small piece of birthday dessert for the birthday guy when we had our coffee.

This was very very disappointing as when we go to Del Frisco, Ruth Chris and Capital Grill for our celebrations, there is always a little something at dessert time. Sounds petty but it was for a special occasion and it’s not like the restaurant didn’t know! Why ask if your not going to do anything!

Otherwise I would have given this place 5 stars all around.

The food was beyond amazing, even hubby thought so and he doesn’t care too much for this type of food. everyone was nice otherwise. Wait service was normal for this type of establishment and he was knowledgeable and very pleasant.
Wonder if having the 15% discount for reserve clients made the restaurant less attentive? even though, I still tipped 20% using the full check value even though my DIL was very dissspointed in the outcome of how her husband’s birthday dinner was.

Food was great! We were entertaining customers and the setting was perfect. Steaks were cooked perfect and seafood was fresh. Warm butter cake, carrot cake, and chocolate peanut butter pie were incredible. Our server Andre was a great host and took great care of us. I highly recommend if in the area!

For the price you pay it isn't worthwhile. Better restaurants around the area and in Boston. Food was just okay, service was just okay, but they did make a killer Manhattan.

Our waiter Aaron Young was very knowledgeable and professional and that is so helpful when you see so many outstanding dishes on the menu along with variety. We had the Shrimp cocktail on dry ice (nice visual), Caesar Salad and Sea Bass. All of it was prepared to perfection. We are looking forward to a return visit.
