Ocean Prime Restaurant Review - Fine Dining in Beverly Hills

On the corner of Wilshire and Camden, Ocean Prime is an exquisite new restaurant in Beverly Hills, replacing the well-known El Torito Grill.  After being newly remodeled, Ocean Prime restaurant opened the latter part 2014 and looks amazing.   The atmosphere is very comfortable with just the right amount of mood lighting.  It is a great place to have a romantic dinner or a space to meet a friend for a cocktail.  There is even a separate dining area for special events that has a tent on the other side of the main dining room. 

Walking into the main dining room you pass the beautiful shellfish on ice location, which adds to their name. Ocean Prime does have a large variety of seafood and sushi, but they also have a great selection of steaks, pork, lamb chops and salads.  The décor is absolutely beautiful and the staff/service was top notch including our waitress Sabin.  The presentation of the dishes were spectacular and the overall vibe was fantastic.  While there you don't want to miss one of their specialty cocktails, like the berry and bubbles or some great wines to enhance your meal!

Starters include the delicate Goat Cheese Ravioli, the sweet, tangy and crunchy Calamari, the Ahi Tuna Tartare, and King Crab legs. We can’t forget their signature sushi rolls, or the Raw Bar with selections such as Oysters on the half shell, Colossal Shrimp Cocktail, Chilled Crab meat and a “Smoking” Shellfish Tower which, living up to its name, is a huge tower of shellfish and seafood. The French Onion soup is as good as it gets and the salads are fresh and loaded with delights. For example, the Ocean Prime House salad has fresh cut Granny Smith apples, walnuts, goat cheese and a sherry mustard Vinaigrette.

On to the entrees and sides, which you can’t leave without trying. The selection of fish we ordered included Blackened Pacific Grouper, King Salmon, Yellowfin Tuna and the Chilean Sea Bass, they will literally melt in your mouth.  The 16 oz Kanas City steak on the bone was smoky and delicious and the Lamb Chops are thick double cut and as good as anywhere in the city. Don't miss some of their generous portion side dishes to accompany your meal. We loved the double baked potato and creamed spinach among many other choices.

The desserts at Ocean Prime are equally as impressive and delicious as the appetizers and main courses. They have a big variety of desserts like the Ten Layer Carrot Cake which is literally ten layers of goodness. The Baked Alaska is a masterpiece of pound cake, vanilla, chocolate and strawberry ice creams with toasted meringue and some fresh raspberries. The Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake with its graham cracker crust and blueberry syrup will not disappoint. Also, after a big hearty meal and you don’t think you can fit another thing in they have a refreshing sorbet that is on the lighter side, and will complete your meal nicely. They even have a wide variety of after dinner drinks.

Ocean Prime is positioned to be a very popular spot in the Beverly Hills eating and meeting landscape for a long, long time.  You will have a great dining experience.
