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.

    We were seated at our reserved time, the table had a great view of the water, and the food was very good. The only downside was the small portions - I don't mind paying $44 for a bone-in Ribeye, but I have paid the same at an actual Steakhouse and received a much larger portion. My Son's Filet Mignon was also quite small.

    The food was good. Waiter was excellent, however when I inquired about a pre fix menu, the hostess new absolutely nothing about it. In fact she said there was no such thing available. I had been told over the phone that they do in fact have a price fix menu. I have dined here many times before and knew that they offered the price fixed menu. Then I noticed it at the very bottom of the page. That was very frustrating to me. We brought it to the hostess' attention, and her reply was that she had only been working there for four months. She should have inquired for us instead of denying that there was no such thing as price fixed menu. Very frustrating indeed!

    The food was very good - apps were delicious and the entrée were also tasty - I had monk fish wrapped with bacon special. The view at sunset is the hallmark of this restaurant and it is quite busy at this time. Best seats are outside on the deck - on the rail of the deck. I would recommend trying this place at least once during the summer - a day the weathers is nice. Only con - apps and entrees a bit pricey but I imagine that's due to seasonal crowds.

    after a long afternoon with friend kayaking we still wanted to eat outdoors. Ocean was the perfect spot. Beautiful view, great service. Food was a little pricey but your paying for the ambiance. Worth it. Only draw back. Wedding was going on. It didn't really effect us. Many overly dressed people walking thru to get outside to the wedding. Felt bad for the wedding party having us all watch .. Would definitelt recomend

    A beautiful setting enhanced by a fine meal and good service The prices make this a special occasion destination. If your schedule permits during the week a price fix menu is available The lobster sliders and ceviche of the day were good starters as well as the gazpacho The sushi rolls were good, however a little less rice and more filling would have gotten a very good rating. The sea scallops were great. Desserts were fun and delicious - s'mores and chipwitch sandwiches, however did not offer refills on coffee.

    The view is outstanding. The food was well prepared and presented. We had filet mignon and salmon with lobster slider appetizer -- all was cooked perfectly. Everything was very elegantly served on the outside deck. I would recommend this spot for a special occasion or early dinner for a romantic view. We had a delightful time. The valet parking was polite, coming and going. It was a pleasure. The meal was priced on the high end for entree and drinks considering the area. I would return to Ocean, especially for a special meal or event.

    I always go here for the view! The best on Long Island! The food and service is inconsistent. The sushi is AMAZING! When we went on Friday the service and food were GREAT! I went earlier in the summer and couldn't say the same (most of my party would never return). However, my husband and I have been coming here The Crescent Beach Club (restaurant has changed names a few times) for a least 15 years and always return!

    Great view. Good food. Excellent service. We had a party of 8 and wanted to be outdoors. We ended up having dinner at the lounge area. The space was a little tight since they had to connect 2 tables but we made it work. It was a very good experience . I would go back there again.

    Went there with my son & husband for sunset dinner. The location is prime located on the beach overlooking the Long Island Sound. There is not enough wait staff. NO kids menu. I asked the waitress if there was any way my son could order a cheeseburger. Fortunately she said he could or we would have left. There were no child friendly options on the menu at all! I ordered the lobster linguine. For $33 it should have been spectacular. Instead it was dry & the lobster was definitely frozen not fresh. Very disappointing. My husband's pork belly was ok & my son's cheeseburger surprisingly was cooked perfectly & he loved it. How bad can you screw up a burger? The waitress had so many tables she kept passing us when we needed her. Go elsewhere.

    We got married here a few years ago, and return every year for our anniversary. Everytime, the food and atmosphere is great (which is why we keep coming back), but the waiter is HORRIBLE. It took 20 minutes to first visit our table, and another 10 to get our drinks. So we ate our appetizer without any beverages. I had to ask for water 3 times before he remembered. We ordered a brunch tht comes with a tray of bread/pastries and a parfait, he forgot to bring these as well. We received them AFTER our meal when I reminded him. For such an amazing restaurant, they have such poorly trained waitstaff. I am not sure we will be spending our money there for our next anniversary :(

    I hadent diner at The Crescent Beach club since it was the Pine Island Grill, but I must say what a difference! Food was very good, I had the charcuterie plate as my appetizer, the country pate went great with the bottle of Staggs Leap that our waiter suggested, as my entree I had the 2lb lobster which was cooked to perfection. And as for the view, Amazing!!! the sun sank behind the Long Island sound right as I finished my last sip of wine, completing what truly was a perfect evening.

    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.

    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!

    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.
