The best part about Ocean Prime is how accessible it is. You almost never have to make a reservation here, so if you’ve had a particularly bad day at work that will only be made better by consuming an entire steak by yourself, you should just grab a seat at the Ocean Prime bar. In addition to being one of the best looking bars in the area, it also has one of the better cocktail menus - with things like a whiskey clover with honey water and rum punch with chocolate bitters.
