Were In Orlando for a couple of days and made a reservation at Ocean Prime. Discovered it on our last trip to the States and it is now one of our favourites. The restaurant is lovely, the staff welcoming and professional. Great vibe there. They were very helpful in ordering drinks (happy hour), which we do not normally have in Canada. When you arrive they bring you a basket of buttered popcorn. Nice touch. They automatically refill it. Had an appetizer dinner of calamari, California rolls, dynamite rolls and lobster rolls. All were soooo delicious. I have noticed some reviews saying this is an expensive dining experience, but we were blown away at how inexpensive it was, as in Canada, the prices would be double. Always look for an Ocean Prime when in the U.S. Highly recommend.

Wow! It was our first visit, but what an exceptional meal!

The menu is imaginative - (caviar truffled hard boiled eggs! a calamari preparation that is worth writing about!) - the space is quite striking - the music level (even though they had a live guitarist) was proper for allowing dinner conversation - the service was spot-on!

It's rare that a restaurant manages to get a whole lot right (face it, these days, getting even a few things right merits a good review) but this place nailed it. I can't imagine you would not enjoy yourself at Ocean Prime.

Having said that, I noticed that a few reviews commented on the prices. This is not a cheap place - you can't serve seafood of this quality cheaply - but is a high end restaurant with style. I didn't find the prices high for the nature of the place, but you should understand what type of place it is, particularly if you are looking for budget dining.

Convenient location from the conference center. We went for business to get away from the conference. Wonderful seafood! Every plate was devoured from scallops to grouper. Drinks were generous and creative. Especially the black orchid and the black and glue mojito. Recommend going for happy hour to take advantage of special pricing.
Our group was only 5 for dinner on a Wednesday and we were seated at a high top table in the bar. It was loud but the atmosphere was still pleasant. Very attentive wait staff and nice pacing between drinks, appetizers and mains. Could easily fill up on appetizers and go more tapas style though not the intention. Some main dishes were quite pricey but at least a good meal.

I think Ocean Prime may be a bit overpriced for what you get. For one thing, the front dining room had musical entertainment that was way too loud and during which talking would have been impossible. Luckily, they also had a quieter back room where we were seated. As an appetizer, I had the "chop chop" salad, which was OK but not awesome. For my main course, I had the blackened snapper, which was not as blackened as I would have expected or liked. It was also OK, but I probably would not order it again. On the flip side, my dining partner had "hamachi crudo" sushi for an appetizer, which was really good (I had a taste) and ahi tuna for his main course, which he raved about. So, bottom line may be to be careful what you order. For dessert, we split the "butter cake" which really was awesome, but you don't go to a restaurant like Ocean Prime just for dessert. Service was also quite good, but they whisked away plates quite quickly, sometimes before we were finished eating what was on them. I would suggest ordering appetizer first and then main course later. Otherwise, your main course is likely to come out while you are still working on the appetizer.
