    We’ve been looking for a great place for my husband to enjoy seafood and for me to find a great steak since our last go to spots shut down. This place did both great and the sides, the entrees, the salads, the cocktails knocked it out of the park. Our server, Jameson was so friendly and accommodating as well. Just a 10/10 experience and this may well become our new celebration spot.

    It was my birthday and in my reservation, I’d asked for a booth/table with a nice view. I had been looking forward to this meal and this celebration with our good friends. We were literally seated to the nearest booth to the door and host stand. We had constant foot traffic and interruptions all night. The server was friendly and knowledgeable about both the food and wine menus. Our lobster bisque and my twin lobster tails were all lukewarm to cold. We went for long periods of time with dirty plates and dishes left on our table in between courses and after our meal. Frankly, for spending $600+ at our table, I was disappointed and expected a better experience. We frequent restaurants often and expensive ones multiple times a year. I’m not sure that we’ll be back!

    The dining was an interesting experience. The environment was very classy. The servers were kind. However, the food was incredibly expensive, and not particularly worth the price. For instance, lobster mac & cheese side dish cost $50. It’s the cost of most main entrées. Understandably, because it had lobster, but still the most expensive lobster mac & cheese we’ve ever ordered, and not particularly any different in taste. The receptionists at the onset of our arrival could benefit from actually smiling to the guests. There was two, and neither of them cared to greet us with any passion other than to just seat us. They gave us the impression that the restaurant was the last place they wanted to be. For a meal that cost close to $300 for just two people, a smile would have been a very inexpensive way to show some courtesy. Nevertheless, our servers were very kind, and helpful. The food was fine, but again, not necessarily worth it given it was incredibly expensive in cost. The dining room is beautiful, and the patrons were well-behaved. We probably wouldn’t eat here again, unless we were prepared to spend an incredible amount of money. Anyway, it was a nice experience to have visited at least once.

    I found the waiter Alanto be exceptional. The hostesses were haughty and that is being nice. The waiter gave excellent suggestions and even convinced my wife to try the Beet Salad which she loved. HIS support staff was the reason for the poor service. We were served our first course and had to find someone to give us flatware. At one point prior to that some unknown and not introduced person came by and took our bread plates. My wife's Ahi had no flavor. There were people nearby who had obviously been over served and were beyond loud. There also seems to be NO dress code. Is there not a place to go in KC to celebrate with some degree of decorum? I'm still looking. Alan provided a dessert for our anniversary and that was nice but I don't think I'll be back. I long for the days of the American Restaurant.

    Overall the experience was exceptional. My only suggestion would be to ask for the wait staff to disclose the price of the specials if it is a considerable amount more than the normal menu pricing. One of the individuals in our party received sticker shock when his 'special' was almost 50% than the most expensive item on the menu.

    Absolutely delicious dinner! All of the people in our party had different dishes. Hands down the Chilean sea bass and the sea scallops were our favorites. However, you can’t miss with the grouper or twin lobster tails. Great place for a special dinner celebration.

    We had the worst experience at Ocean Prime on Saturday. We were there to celebrate my husbands birthday and anything that could go wrong did. The waiter, while he was nice, spilled an entire glass of water on the table which wet the front of my dress. They did change the linen but I sat wet for hours. No ones enjoyed their food. The Sea Bass was extremely fishy tasting so I kindly requested a different dish. My husband steak which was supposed to be Medium Well was well done and very charred on outside. My friends steak was rare not medium. When the manager came over she was extremely rude and rolled her eyes while talking to us a making condescending comments. For the price and service, I will never go back. Not the best birthday experience for my husband. Lastly, we were all sick that night after the meal, which is an added layer of frustration. Again, we will not be returning!!

    The restaurant was great as was the staff. Got the 14oz strip and added lobster tail. The lobster tail was very small for 30 bucks and the steak was good but not great as far as flavor. 2 people with 2 sides and 1 drink was 300 bucks. Nice place but expensive for just average food in my opinion
