This Tampa Version of the upscale chain is a little different. Still high class decor, beautiful people, and excellent food and drink, but there is a real push at every opportunity by the server on the upsell. My colleague's redfish was perfectly seasoned and my Chilean sea bass with truffles was just as buttery and delicate as you would hope... More

My wife and I visited Ocean Prime for the first time last week and quite impressed. We dined with two other couples and the seafood and steaks were perfectly prepared with the appropriate presentation. Service is what you would expect at a fine dining establishment.....and they do have gluten free dishes.

The service was great. Seafood portions were small and over priced. Server was trying to hard on the up sell.The sea bass was very good.

With its upscale atmosphere, strategically placed neon lights and delicious food, Ocean Prime is the “prime” (pun intended) spot to enjoy a lovely and memorable evening of fine dining and just enjoying the moment. It's more than just dinner, it's an experience. We were seated at an outside table overlooking the water. (Thank you for the heat lamps). Yes the... More

The entire dining experience at Ocean Prime Tampa is consistently excellent. Food, service and ambience make this one of our favorite restaurants in Tampa. The outdoor patio during this time of year is especially great place to enjoy a relaxing meal.

Business dinner with friends. From the moment we walked in the service was impeccable. Specialty drinks were great. Seafood "tower" customized to our liking. Plenty of entree choices to satisfy all eight of us. My 10 layer carrot cake dessert the best ever. If you're looking for a relaxed pace, I highly recommend.

I really like this place, I have been several times and it has always been great. The food is special, the service is fantastic and I love the dining room as well as the outdoor dining area. We had the tuna appetizer which is so fresh and delicious. Steak tartare, also super fresh and tasty. I had the shellfish cobb... More

Had dinner with two friends at Ocean Prime. The food was quite good, but nothing out of this world. However, we had the worst service that I have seen in a very long time. It took 20 minutes to get the waiter to take our drink order, 20 minutes to get the drinks. We had to flag him down to... More

Whether you are here for the Steak, Seafood or deep winelist or just the great ambience, you could not do better on this end of Tampa!. So perfectly located next to the International Mall and the Airport! My wife and I love meeting friends while enjoying the outdoor patio and bar areas. Kick off your evening with the Tuna Tartare!...
