Success! Thanks for posting your review of Ocean Harbor. You’ve done the world some good today.

Service is abysmal. After paying, they asked for a larger tip as they did not feel the tip we had provided was large enough. Gave us food that we did not want because we looked at it and talked about it. Server said she was not the waitress and would not refill water. I would go to the place across the street next time if you want dim sum.

Great Dimsum but the Service SUCKS!

I go here for dim sum from time to time and here's what always happens: - I'm waived to a table by the left wall - I ask for water and tea but only get tea no matter how many times I ask for water - Very little contact with a waiter or waitress and any interaction is very curt and short - I wind up not tipping the waiter or waitress, been asked and explained why I haven't (I will personally give something to the wome... view more

Ocean Harbor is good if you know what and how to order

I've eaten at Ocean Harbor several times and each time was very good to excellent, but here's the problem I see with all the bad reviews I've read so far. This is a very Asian-oriented restaurant and, that said, and it's no fault of you or the restaurant, if you're not Asian in certain Chinatown restaurants, you might not be treated so well in them. If I went to an Italian restaurant where they spoke mostly Italian, ... view more

No Dim Sum After 3?

We went to Ocean Harbor for Dim Sum based upon the many good reviews we'd read on the internet. It was easy to find, right off 95, and parking was easy, too, as it was a Wednesday night. When we got there, there were only a few asians eating in a large empty restaurant. The staff was not particularly friendly and spoke little to no english, and we were informed that they only serve dim sum from 11-3 (rather curtly). ... view more

Bad food and awful service

We were taking a break from the Philadelphia Flower Show and decided to go to Chinatown for lunch. We were looking for seafood and picked Ocean Harbor after the first couple of restaurants weren't open. The restaurant was about half full and we were directed to a table right away. in a minute or so, we were served tea we didn't order (but were later charged for). It came in a broken teapot. Then a waitress came by wi... view more

Great Dim Sum

I love to come here for dim sum since I'm partial to seafood. Come here if you want the majority if not all of the dishes to be seafood. During the weekend there is always a wait to get a table but it is definitely worth it. Just thinking about the food, my mouth waters. One of the best dim sum place if not the best.

This is a GREAT place for Dimsum in Traditional Cantonese Style Just Like Hong Kong...\r Noisy, Smokey,, Loud..Lots of children, Few non-Chinese faces and those only with Chinese as leaders OR if they have been to Asia before. [I lived in China for 10 years!}\r Great DimSum, Tasty, Well prepared. In the 6-7 years I have gone here never had to wait [always show before 11 or After 3 pm.] Sat and Sun are busy weekend Fa... view more

Pretty good experience

I came here on the weekday and the restaurant seems pretty empty. The waiter took my order pretty quickly. The food came out pretty fast too. I ordered a general tso chicken and I think it doesn't taste bad. Overall a pretty good experience.

Mediocre dinner experience

I tried this place for dinner and found the food to be not really very good and a bit pricey for what you get. Ordering simple stir fry dishes, which ought to be easy for any chinese place to provide, I was unpleasantly surprised. The chicken stir fry had a nice amount of white meat chicken delicate and thin and the veggies (snow peas, water chestnuts, mushrooms) were there but the entire dish was very tasteless. I d... view more

Delicious Chinatown Dim Sum

I was pleasantly surprised by the whole experience I had at this restaurant. Friends and I wanted to find a place that we could get dim sum at and I found this place on citysearch. Going on a Sunday and having to join a queue wasn't a problem because the turnover on tables is quick and you get seated quicker than expected. The atmosphere is exactly what is to be expected of a more authentic chinese dim sum place - bu... view more
