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 went on a Fall evening @ 7pm. There were only three other tables being served when we were there. Reservation was for 6 people and our table was set for 5. Had to ask for additional table ware. Our waiter was very personable and courteous. Our orders where all correct but everything was a little slow and we had to ask for silverware for each course after the food was brought to our table. Server did not ask if we wanted refills on our drinks, we had to ask.

    I have been to Ocean twice now in the past year, once for lunch with a friend and once for a family birthday dinner with my children. Both times the food was wonderful, but the view was spectacular. Bayville is a beautiful spot and this restaurant has one of the best sunsets around.

    I was meeting 6 high school friends for a mini-reunion brunch. I recommended that we eat at Ocean - and I'm happy that I did! All of my friends loved it! We only get to meet twice a year, so we try to make it special. The view was gorgeous, the food was delicious, and the service was exceptional! Our waitstaff was very attentive and did a great job! Also, I am not supposed to get a lot of sun exposure. Unfortunately, the table that accommodated our group size was not near an umbrella. So, the hostess very graciously (and on her own initiative) found a large handheld umbrella and attached it to a railing behind me to help shade me from the sun. We're already planning our return....

    We had a lovely dinner overlooking the beach. Venue transports us to the Caribbean! Absolutely breathtaking view especially at sunset. New management is a breath of fresh air. New small plates menu tasty, less costly and fun! Nice wine selection, reasonable rates. Good service. Perfect for a summer night! We will be back. Thank you.

    We had dinner here Labor Day evening - two sushi rolls and then wife had a salad with shrimp and I had the lobster sliders. Generous pour on the wine. Attentive service. Amazing views (we sat outside) looking at sunset toward NYC. Because it is out in Bayville, we made an Open Table reservation. The restaurant is part of The Crescent Club, which does alot of weddings so at those times it is crowded (call and ask). In the past we have enjoyed watching the wedding festivities from the bar on the 3rd floor deck. For the guy complaining about the $45 Rib Eye, there is a filet mignon for $33 and a skirt steak for $29. Most entrees in the $27-33 range. Recommended for ocean view and dining. We we pleasantly surprised and will come again.

  • Too expensive
    Funkylewis67
    Dined on 8/30/2014
    The food was not bad. What I had a problem with was that the drinks were way too expensive and the glass that it was served in was a little bigger then a shot glass filled with ice and was almost more expensive then the food I are. Maybe if I wanted to drink my meal it would have been fine. Would not recommend if u r watching your pennies. Also waiter was a bit to uppity for me and I am a very easy going person. First time and last time there.

    Salads were very good. From there things went down hill. After clearing salad plate and forks clam bake was served. Had to request replacement forks and plate. Portion was ok for one. But was billed as clam bake for two. Observed other patron orders which seemed more in line for price. $75.00 cost which came with only one 1 1/4 lb lobster was over the top.

    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!

    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 :(
