I have been several times with my family an believe this is one of the best steak and seafood restaurants in Tampa. Continuously exceptional service - they really aim to please. Lively (but not too noisy) atmosphere. Good food.

This was by far one of the best meals I have ever had. We ate here with friends for a special celebratory dinner. The service was amazing. Our server, Justin, started by stating how accommodating they as a restaurant are, and they were correct. I felt very valued as a patron. For instance, he offered to bring me a half... More

As a visitor to Tampa on business, I ate here for a client meeting. The food was absolutely wonderful! We had the deviled eggs and the calamari as our appetizers. The calamari was perhaps the best I have ever eaten! For my entrée, I had the king salmon. It was phenomenal! The atmosphere is cozy yet contemporary. The service is... More

We went for Valentine's night and loved it. Our expectations were set a little lower since we knew it would be a busy night. This was not the case. Our server - tho extremely busy - was wonderful. The food was outstanding. Cooked to perfection and hot when we got it. They let us switch the sides with our fish... More

I had a small dinner meeting which we conducted at Ocean Prime last night. We were on the back terrace and it ended up being a very pleasant atmosphere. The French onion soup and the house salad were delicious. My vegetarian friend enjoyed the tofu salmon dish, and I enjoyed the petit 6 oz fillet and lobster tortelloni. I will... More

Pleasant, courteous, knowledgeable, friendly, and extremely helpful staff. Ambiance of the restaurant is perfect. Food flavor and presentation was exceptional. Great venue for a low key birthday celebration because they don't sing to you. The table was subtly decorated with happy birthday confetti.

Most overrated place in Tampa, and the staff knows it. Disingenuous would be kind, food was average and totally overpriced. $5 for bernaise, must have been about 2 oz in a tiny side dish...last time going

I had the surf and turf appetizer which consisted of large sea scallops and braised short rib over mashed potatoes. It was good but was missing some flavor. The atmosphere and service was great.
