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
  • "Very pleasant restaurant. We have been there twice and were wowed by the sunsets over the water. The food was excellent on both visits and the service was friendly, efficient and warm."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "I do not have one bad thing to say. I felt like I was on vacation with that scenery and the food and service did not disappoint. I will definitely return."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "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."

  • "Great place to dine and watch the sun set. Food is quite good. Loved the cauliflower strak."

  • "Everything at Ocean resturant was amazing, the scenery with the sunset over the water was astonishing, i would highly recommend the food, the jerk chicken tacos with mango cold slaw were both sweet with a little kick, the food was amazing and the service was perfect. the night could not have went any better"

  • "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 :("

  • "Had a wonderful Sunday afternoon brunch with a breathtaking view. Our waiter was very polite and helpful. Looking forward to going back...."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Amazing, impressive, cozy! This was a wonderful experience for me and a friend. We got outdoor seating, and I would recommend waiting for that accommodation to open up"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food was terrible, really terrible. The sunset was beautiful but not worth the price. I would recommend going for a drink and skipping dinner!!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Limited menu, but we liked our choices. Gazpacho was too spicy for my taste though. Sushi excellent!"
    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 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."

  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."

  • "The restaurant has an amazing view but the menu is lacking and the food is just adequate"

  • "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
  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Very nasty. Food awful When they brought our dessert, (ice cream) they didn't bring spoons. We were sitting outdoors in the sun on a hot day. The ice cream melted. When they finally brought the spoons, they would not bring us unmelted ice cream. Imagine! The only reason to spend a fortune for a bad experience is the view."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    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."

  • "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."

  • "Although it took me quite a while to get around to writing my review, the memory of my experience will last a lifetime. From the entrance the maitre d' was warm and friendly, as well as the bartender in the lounge upstairs. Once we decided to come down to our table we were able to snag a patio table and the view and atmosphere were delightful. I overheard a man being very rude to his server but gave his server a little wink and told him we knew he was just cranky and not to let it ruin his day. I had the filet and it was cooked perfect. My server was sweet and attentive without being pushy. She made me feel well taken care of! We will be back soon!"
