Leonard (Leo). What a guy! Superb service from start to finish. A credit to Ocean Prime and the entire hospitality industry. I visited with my brother prior to heading to the airport. We had a couple of hours here and it was an excellent end...to my week in MA. Will be sure to visit again when I next return to Boston.More

Fine and exquisite food, elegant and very pleasant place to share with your partner, family or friends. There I ate the best Kobe beef I have ever tasted. The prices are quite high but it is worth it for the quality of the food.

Visited Ocean Prime twice over marathon weekend. The first time was so good that when our flight out after the race was delayed we decided to pop back for a second visit, which was even better than our first! If you are looking for a...vibrant atmosphere coupled with great food and service in central Boston then this is for you. The menu is pretty wide ranging - they have amazing sushi but also more typical ‘American’ dishes. Great wine list as well. As for deserts then the 10 tier carrot cake is a thing of majesty. Give it a try!! Highly recommendedMore

This is not a restaurant for foodies. It is upscale comfort food in a very trendy spot. You will pay a hefty price for mediocre food.

I went out with my friends and chose Ocean Prime since I've never been there. Upon arrival and being seated promptly, our waiter came over and took our drink order and appetizer. Our deinks were delicious. I loved my black orchid drink. The oysters were...delicious, the calamari was to die for, and the surf and turf was not good. Some of our meals were delicious. We had a cowboy steak au poivre, the jalapeños and potato au gratin, and some kind of sweet corn (forgot the name). All were very delicious. However, the other dishes: the scallop with risotto, the fish and risotto were not a favorite. The risotto was blend and the do over salty, the chef couldn't get it right. He also didn't get the lamb right either. It was salty. I came in expecting so much more since I've heard so much about it. It was my first time there and the price didn't match the dishes. I'm not quite sure I would go back.More

Food was delicious but portions and service was impeccable of apps were small and overall VERY pricey. Great place to celebrate a special occasion but over most people's budget for a regular meal out. The surf and turf app consisted of a tiny piece of...short rib, 2 scallops and a small portion of mashed potato for $27. Salads were ok for sharing.More

The service is impeccable and the food is cooked to perfection. Every single thing we ate was delicious. The bread, salad, soup, steaks, dessert. Their cocktails are creative and delicious as well. The only thing I was surprised at was the volume level - we...found it a little hard to visit because it was so loud in there. But I would absolutely return.More

Loved this place! The food was amazing - we had steak and lobster, the staff were friendly and attentive. It’s expensive but worth it for a special occasion. You need to book though - it was full (a good sign)

We had a chance to visit Ocean Prime during our recent stay in the Boston Seaport. Very good food and excellent service were big pluses for us. Negatives were a very young and nosiy crowd inside. And the restaurant is right on the main drag...of the Seaport. So if you want a place with lots of energy and good food, an excellent choice. But maybe not for a romatic dinner.More

This is a lively and popular restaurant in the seaport area. Service is friendly, informative and attentive. The food is quite good. Standouts were the lamb and the scallops. The wedge salad and beets were good too. The ten layer carrot cake was enough for...five people. Wine list is decent as are the signature cocktails.More

One of the best go to restaurants for your high end steak and seafood cuisine. Great location on the Seaport in Boston. Excellent service. Attentive, courteous, polite and friendly. All foods, appetizers, entrees, desserts and drinks were absolutely delicious and made to perfection. For appetizers,...We ordered the surf and turf which was succulent short rib and scallops, calamari and deviled eggs. For our entrees, we ordered the ribeye and the bone-in filet. Delicious and cooked to perfection. For sides, the truffle fries were “da bomb” next to the miso roasted broccoli and asparagus with hollandaise sauce. For dessert, the 10 layer carrot cake, chocolate peanut butter pie and chocolate torte. So good. The best to finish of an excellent dinner. The berries and bubbles drink awesome! A bit pricey but we’ll worth it for special events and impressing a date. Highly recommend. Definitely return again soon. Special event or not.More

We decided to have a drink at the bar before dinner which turned out to be a good decision. My cherry wood smoked old fashioned was well presented by a knowledgeable bartender and delicious as was the truffle oil popcorn on the bar. Friendly and...professional service throughout the place. Tina waited on us for dinner and wished my wife a happy birthday as we were seated, then brought her a small bowl of popcorn when I told her we loved it. Oysters, onion soup, clam chowder and complementary breads were all super. My Bleu cheese crusted filet was good as was her halibut special on risotto. Tina gave us a half order of tater tots when we said we weren't sure we could eat that much. A complementary dessert of butter cake with vanilla ice cream with berries and a raspberry sauce was great. A good bottle of wine completed the meal. It is an expensive meal but worth it for the service, presentation, food and ambiance. Thank you Tina for making it a great birthday dinner.More
