Don't miss out!This was our second visit to Ocean 235 and it was just as amazing this time around. There were 4 of us each time and we ordered different items and everyone loved their choices, from starters through dessert. We highly recommend their chocolate ice cream with cayenne and cinnamon....omg.....
Don't miss out on this neighborhood gem!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice dinnerMy husband and I were in Easton for the weekend and had a fantastic dinner at Ocean. All appetizers were outstanding except the Dijon mustard shrimps, good but not sorich in flavor. Tuna tartar, special soup of the day (curry coconut milk cod) and truffle fries were executed extremely well. Crispy skin salmon was one of the best fish dishes I had in while and living in NYC our food standard is pretty high. Vanilla creme brulee was just perfect, spicy chocolate dessert is for you if you are into spicy food.
Service was not the fastest since there was a large private party downstair, the owner came to our table to apologize and offered us complementary desserts, very nice of him.
Overall a great experience, I wish Ocean was in NYC.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOcean 235 ReviewDined here May 10. Overall, terrific food! The Entree selection seems limited. Therefore, I had two Small Plates that were very satisfying in amount and taste. My wife's entree was nicely presented as well.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMUnexpectedly Great!Had been to Ocean several times for private parties or drinks, but never had a full meal here until this trip. I know they had been known for their bar scene, but hadn't heard much about the food. Our late dinner here was absolutely delicious! We had the ahi tuna, scallops, and short rib entrees and all three were very good and very filling. Chip and Nook took great care of us and we will certainly return.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasedTruffle fries are excellent and really enjoyed the wild mushroom ravioli. Our waitress was outstanding5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceEnjoyable experience in every way; from making the reservation and speaking to such an accommodating person, to the pleasing entrance, the pleasant greeter, and the VERY attentive staff and the delicious food.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMImpressedEverything was very well prepared and creative. The drink prices seemed high considering we were their during the happy hour and sat at the bar before we were seated. We thought the selection of fish was limited, but the preparation was outstanding. The apps, salad and entree were reasonably price. The table next to us was a bit loud, but it was a large group. We were impressed with the food and the drinks. Really a nice night out.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great mealBeen here many times. Food is very good. Nice selection of small plates and full dinners. Service quick and attentive and friendly. Will return soon and often.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated Wedding AnniversayAn Overall Great Experience!
Our waitress was very helpful. She explained the menu and offered suggestions based upon our personal preferences.
We each had the vegetable bisque (outstanding), shared 3 appetizers and the Ahi Tuna entre.
The scallops were of the best quality and seared to perfection. Fried calamari was tender with a crispy coating. Lobster mac-n-cheese very rich and satisfying. We also shared the Rare Ahi Tuna with Udon noodles. The Tuna was well seasoned and seared nicely. For desert the chocolate chip cheesecake spring rolls, that were light and tasty.
To some it may seem a bit pricey, but you are getting what you pay for; a very high quality meal with excellent service and ambiance.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent food and friendly,excellent food and friendly, helpful service. will definitely return again!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had dinner at Ocean 235We had dinner at Ocean 235 the other night, our second visit there.

Mussels appetizer was plentiful and yummy; the monkfish and the crispy salmon cooked perfectly. Thanks, Ocean 235!

Found this place after searching the internet and walking by after being in the neighborhood. What a find! From the moment we walked in the service was excellent. We had 8:30 reservations (made online) and arrived a tad early. THe maitre suggested we wait at the bar because our table was just about to clear (even though other tables were open) but he informed us our "reserved" table was in a corner....so WORTH the small wait. WE had the corner booth in the back and it was like private dining. A party of four we tried three appetizers - mussels with carmelized onion and chorizo, lobster mac and cheese, and calamari. All were wonderful. Dinner entrees (duck, scallops, crispy salmon, and crispy chicken) - EXCELLENT! Will be back!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom Carmen's drink to appsFrom Carmen's drink to apps to desert. Excellent from beginning to end3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMMust try...excellent in all waysOcean was selected, as my friend and I has rickets to a show at the State Theatre & my recommendation.
The owner was charming, service excellent. While we waited for our meal, the owner asked us to try a complimentary dish they were considering......chicken spring roll with jam........absolutely delightful!
Just before our meals were to be served, owner made soft recommendation for wine with meal......again, he selection was perfect and complimented both dishes.
My friend was totally surprised by Ocean and is already planning our next meal there. Looking forward to summer, so we can enjoy tapas & drinks outside.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOcean 235 was excellent.
