A word from Ocean @ The Crescent Beach Club
Set within one of Long Island’s most spectacular waterfront venues, Ocean provides guests with an unparalleled dining experience and setting. The restaurant’s architecture, which includes floating sculptures of fish chasing squid through the dining room is bettered only by the panoramic views of the Atlantic waters as they arrive on the beach of the Long Island Sound.

The re-conceptualised new American menu is an unpretentious and honest approach to using quality products (both seasonal and organic) by skilled artisans in a way to provide the best epicurean experience. Our professional and devoted service will make any occasion worth remembering.

Diner Reviews
  • "The food needs improvement as does the service. The sushi is probably the best thing on the menu and it not great. Service seems hit or miss. You come here for the view of long island sound. Could be really great if food quality and execution went up a few notches."

  • "Ocean has a beautiful beach location, and the food is always excellent. We have never been disappointed."

  • "Ocean was great. The best tasting mozzerella & tomato salad ever! Food was amazing. View was amazing. We left before the sunset but it is a wonderful view."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The Crescent Beach club makes you feel like you are vacationing on an Island. There are even palm trees on the beach. We had Sunday lunch on the balcony overlooking the beach and bay. They were setting up for a wedding so we were unable to go downstairs to the beach area. Overall, a very nice place to go."

  • "We had fun watching fire works on the 4th of July and having a choice of sushi or the fixed menu for that day. We needed to have that choice available."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "You don't go to this place to eat, the sushi is good but the kitchen just can't turn out edible food! Also make sure you're not sitting at the owners table, the wife threw a fit and the people sitting there were told they had to move to another table! Disgusting behavior! We go because the view is the best and it was 4th of July! We were called and told no children under 18, there were plenty of kids there! Make sure you eat first and have drinks upstairs, thats the best you can expect from this place! A real shame!"

  • "Limited menu, but we liked our choices. Gazpacho was too spicy for my taste though. Sushi excellent!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "i was here 10 years ago when this restaurant was classy, delicious and somewhat formal. it was shocking how bad the restaurant has become. the food was terrible and the service was worse. and the prices are outrageous on top of it."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "Food was below average. Very high priced, very small portions. If you go here its strictly for the view, eat before you go and just order desert at this place."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "I had the special of the day which was grilled swordfish. Excellent flavor and beautiful presentation. My fiancé had the salmon over faro which was also excellent. Prior to the main meal we shared some really great jerk chicken tacos. The food and service were top shelf. This is the first time we have been back in awhile and we were concerned about some of the other comments that we read. The bottom line is that more people write when they have something to complain about but never take the time to compliment when things are good. And, some people never seem to be happy. Nothing is ever perfect and when there is an issue I have always found that if you tell the staff nicely they will accommodate you. Ocean was a great treat today."

    Dined on 6/30/2014
  • "Good food, great scenery. BAD service. Once seated, we had to go out of our way to get the attention of a waitress for service. It was quite a wait and an even longer wait as we waited almost and hour for our meal to arrive for a table of six. I understand being busy but no one came by to give an update. We were told the special for that day was sword fish but when served, it was not sword fish. The manager walked by to ask how everything was and we told her that we didn't get what we ordered. She was suprised to hear that we were told about a item that was no longer on the menu. She was nice enough to take that order off our bill. I can't say every table received similar service but we were not happy at all. Felt like a wasted evening."

  • "I normally don't write reviews, but Ocean was such a special experience, the view is breath taking, but the brunch yummy. I dine in NYC so it was a pleasant surprise to have a great view and great food."
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "Went to Ocean on a Monday night around 8pm so it wasn't very busy. We were seated at our table and waited approximately 25 minutes for menus (during which our original waiter actually came back to the table 3 times to ask for our drinks/food order and we asked for menus and he just kept forgetting) so we were off to a very annoyed start. We eventually asked to change our waiter and once we got Erick we were much happier. He had great recommendations (apps: the chicken tacos, shrimp cocktail and entree: pasta and scallops) and we loved everything we ordered. They have a VERY young wait staff so I wouldn't expect top notch service, BUT I would go back for the view and the food."
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Very nice waiter even though it was his second day there. Nice water view. Food took a little too long to come but staff was nice about it. I had filet mignon and it was a little dry but ok. My family wasn't too happy with their steaks. Overall it was a nice place and I would return again."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "Not only a beautiful waterfront dining location - which alone is the reason to go but the staff from the valet to server were awesome. The food was on par- overall this was a great dining experience and has become our new dining destination!"
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The view is great. The food was mediocre at best. Seemed like a tourist trap to me. An awful lot of money to pay to watch an admittedly beautiful sunset. Every course was a disappointment. I was embarrassed to have suggested it."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The dinning room and views are tops. Food and service needs improvement. The staff are very young and inexperienced but are very friendly and courteous. The food was ok not exceptional. I had seafood pasta that was bland and the pasta wash very starchy for $33. With some small improvements this place could be great."

  • "Beautifully scenic, give the effect of being on a tropical island. Beach front, palm trees, great food and drinks."

  • "We went to Ocean for Father's Day dinner. We had a 6:30pm reservation and already they were out of the Striped Bass. Their "simply grilled" daily fish selection was covered in bacon and could not be modified. There was no grilled fish available. My daughter and I ordered filet mignon medium. The filet mignon came out raw and had to be recooked - something you never want to do to filet mignon. There was a wedding going on right underneath us and people were smoking cigarettes. It is illegal to smoke at a restaurant in Nassau County. But, more importantly, it destroys your meal. The view was special and it was a beautiful night. All in all, we were very disappointed and upset because we wanted it to be a nice Father's Day dinner."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We went here for father's day brunch. The highlight of this place is the outdoor dining overlooking the private beach. The place looks classy and the service was very good. The food was just ok, and very pricey, but you're basically paying for the view and atmosphere. Overall had a nice experience and encountered friendly staff."

  • "Go for the location. One of the prettiest views on the north shore."

  • "Went there on a saturday late afternoon. Relatively empty around 6:30 but became full 30 minutes later. We could not dine outside because of the wind, but were seated by the window and the view of the sunset was spectacular. The sushi bar was simply delicious! The food and wine were great. Service was somewhat dissapointing. No service trays for the sushi, as we had to ask one of her helpers. Misunderstodd the order and we ended up with an extra sushi roll, and later an extra desert. Maybe the noise was a contributor, as it was indeed very noisy."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The food here is really bad. Out of four people's appetizers and entrees, the raw bar was the only thing that was "okay." The grilled fish was flavorless and the scallops and pork belly were subpar. The service is overly attentive but in a bad way (clearing silverware and asking incessantly if you're finished). It's clear they're trying to turn the tables over too quickly. Come here for a drink on the deck and enjoy the view but don't order any food. Yuck."

  • "The food was impeccable.. The view of the water was beautiful.."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "There are few restaurants that possess the panoramic view that Ocean has. Set on the Long Island Sound in Bayville, the summer sunsets can be spectacular, and Saturday night was no exception!! The sunset was just as spectacular as those I've seen in the Caribbean. Couple that with very good to exceptional food and you have a "special evening". Our group of 4 started off with cocktails and excellent sushi. We then shared the lobster sliders. Dinner was either the scallops or filet mignon, followed by dessert. We sat down for dinner at 7:30 PM and didn't leave the restaurant until 10:30. There are few restaurants in the New York area that can match the experience that you get here!!"

  • "Great place to go for a drink. Multi-level outside and inside. Functions as catering for wedding venues. The views are gorgeous. Especially the sunsets are marvelous. Unfortunately, the food menu is limited in selection, relatively expensive for what you get, edible but nothing to write home for. Too bad the Owner don't also put an emphasis on great food. Otherwise the restaurant would be packed. If you have a special occasion, definitely a romantic destination"

  • "Food was not tasty. Service was young and so so. Ordered crab cake as an app, sushi & a burger as entrees. Waiter informed us sushi would probably come out first since the crab cake was hot. Seemed inexperienced not knowing how to time when to put in entrees. Sushi did come out first. Long wait time for the crab cake and even longer for the burger. Burger was good. Sushi I would not order again. Presentation was good but instantly fell apart and tasted nothing like described. entertainment for the evening was the best part. Would only go back for that and a drink."

  • "Lobster was so overcooked that I couldn't even chew....for a seafood restaurant, it's a sin. The other dishes were mediocre and would not recommend for the food. I would go again for drinks, for the setting and the service was also good. "

  • "The views are seen the second you walk in the main entrance and it only gets better when you see the close proximity to the water. There is not a seat in this place that is not front row to the beautiful outdoors. You could have served me a glass of water and I would have been happy but then I would have missed the other amazing part of this restaurant, THE FOOD. OMG so incredible, and the service is personable and precise. I do not have a bad thing to say about Ocean at the Crescent Beach Club. This is a must go place to. Cannot wait to return for dinner and try out brunch. Hmmm Father's Day is coming. "

  • "For the quality of the food, extremely expensive. Great service, great view, I guess that was it included in the price. Had being there multiple time before, I don't know if they change menu or chef, didn't like nobody was happy with their meal this time."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We have been here over the years, and have always been disappointed. We went anyway, because our son was a waiter there, and the view is beautiful. We heard they had a new chef, so even though our son has moved on, we decided to go there and enjoy the view. The food was still disappointing. Void of flavor, and lacking in artistic presentation. The service was just as bad!"

  • "All was good until I had to rush my wife home to go to the bathroom. She spent the rest of mother’s day in the bathroom because of the food she eat at your establishment. I called you to give you FYI. It was disappointing to release that there was no concern toward her from your manager. So I have very mixed feelings about my family’s experience. "

  • "My family and I went here for my birthday brunch. We've been here numerous times before. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed this time around. The service was not that great, 3 of the 5 dishes that were ordered for brunch were cold and needed to be sent back. The eggs benedict wasn't the best as it's been in the past. The meal also came with coffee however the waiter brought us the check right after the plates were cleared and didn't even ask if we wanted coffee or anything else. We had to ask if coffee was served and then it was brought to us as an after thought. Definitely was not impressed and probably won't be back for a while. "
