Ocean Grill New York
Excellent preparation of fish.Excellent preparation of fish. The thing to have here, as the name suggests.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Adult Family MealTook my parents here for their birthdays. It was the perfect place to bring them. It was a mature scene, friendly service, and the tables were nicely spread out. They gave us some great muffins to go and a taste of soup which were really nice touches. Great night overall.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE OCEAN GRILLI love Ocean Grill more and more thanks to the marvelous staff and the amazing food. I bring all my out of town guests there and it never fails to impress. The seafood towers are the perfect way to start a festive evening and the lobsters are simply out of this world! If you aren't in a lobster mood, the simply grilled branzino is terrific choice and then there is the sushi...YUM!!!!! It all adds up to a great time in a great restaurant!!! The UWS is lucky to have Ocean Grill!!!!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed Mother's Day brunch hereThoroughly enjoyed mother's day brunch. Very busy but the staff was excellent.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect for Mothers DayI think everyone had the same idea - Mothers Day at Ocean Grill. Although it was super crowded, jam packed and a little noisy this restaurant was superb. From the moment we walked in the door the staff was extremely helpful and assisted me in getting my little 6 month old in and settled (stroller, high chair, stairs). The food was amazing from the shellfish tower to the lobster popover. Everyone in my family was highly satisfied with their meal. I look forward to my next visit!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce AgainThank you for always serving me and my friends a great meal.
The food is always amazing and the service is always quick, friendly and accommodating.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy mother and I had a wonderfulMy mother and I had a wonderful experience here, enjoying both the food and service! We gave the sushi a try (which I am not a seafood person at all) and LOVED it. The waitress made a wonderful recommendation for us, the lobster roll, knowing that I did not really enjoy the texture of seafood and was not that crazy about idea of raw fish. My mother had eggs benedict, which she said was delicious! I ordered the cheeseburger and I think is the is only restaurant that has brought out a burger cooked the way I asked for it!
Very reasonably priced, excellent food and beautiful ambiance.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome dinner experienceFood was delicious and staff were being very helpful and friendly. We come back!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways excellent !I have an excellent experience for the last 15 years, good food and good service !5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMCompetent seafood restaurantPleasant seafood restaurant across the street from the Museum of Natural History, with nice outside tables. We had a rainbow maki and a Caesar salad for appetizers, simply grilled branzino, scallops, and snapper. The fish was fresh, but a bit overdone on the grill. Appetizers were very good. We had a nice Sancerre. It was a good choice fo our friends from Atlanta who wanted seafood. A tad overpriced for the value, but not exorbitant, and a very nice environment.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMalways a bit noisy- whichalways a bit noisy- which means people are having fun...4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMlast minute birthday dinnerGreat place that I have been to many times before for summer afternoon drinks and seafood. This time it was a last minute pick to celebrate a birthday with a dear friend and the dinner was just perfect. Excellent service, atmosphere and food. We were both very happy.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI've been going to Ocean GrillI've been going to Ocean Grill for years and think it is excellent. The one thing that I do NOT like about it is that it has become a place where people with very young children come whereas in the past, many years ago, that wasn't the case. Children can be unruly and it does affect diners sitting nearby. I know NYC restaurants can't say "no children" but I would encourage places like Ocean Grill to "highly recommend" that children under 5 years of age be kept at home. That being said, I know NYC has also become a much more family friendly place to live. BUT - that doesn't mean that every high quality restaurant in the family neighborhood must be held hostage to the family friendly attitude - quiet romantic places would still be nice4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMlove ocean grill. br guestlove ocean grill. br guest a great restaurant group4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice!This was a lovely way to celebrate our anniversary before a show at the nearby Beacon Theater, but would also be a great place to come for a nice dinner "just because".
I had the fixed price menu and selected the lobster bisque, fish & chips, and creme brulee and all were delicious. My husband ordered a half dozen littlenecks to start and they were so fresh and perfect he immediately ordered another half dozen. He moved onto the striped bass with goat cheese gnocci which he felt lacked some flavor. We were treated to shots of roasted tomato soup before our dinner and muffins to take home for breakfast the next day at the end of our meal.
The staff was incredibly kind, friendly, and accomodating. I would definitely dine here again!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMSeafood - raw tower - so fresh.Seafood - raw tower - so fresh. Lobster roll; pretzel bread; and moten chocolate desert with cappracino ice cream the best.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGem of CPWGreat location, outstanding food. I've eaten here several times before and have always had a great meal. The blackened swordfish is a personal favorite! My only complaint is the noise, but that's to be expected of such a hopping place.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOcean Grill!!! I can onlyOcean Grill!!! I can only say: Keep up the good work. I had the pleasure to visit Ocean Grill on Columbus Ave at 78th Street, and the experience was very memorable. You are greeted at the entrance, your reservation is found on the spot, walked to your table and then you are ready to enjoy your dinner. The service is A+, my waitress was Christine and she went the extra mile to make feel welcome. She is very knowledgeable of the menu, and her suggestions were right on point.
I have already put Ocean Grill on my Must Go List.
Thank you,4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMfree added extraslots of extras that were free - small soup, hot bread rolls and even a take away muffin. The food was excellent4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMA local gemWe love the Ocean Grill. They always have the freshest fish and their preparation and presentation is first rate. Their prices are moderate for a fish restaurant of this calibre. The servers are very friendly and efficient and I love their maitre 'ds. They are never rude or snooty and better yet, they honor their reservations.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Sunday Brunch!Ocean Grill has an upscale atmosphere but an affordable and good Sunday brunch.
I enjoy going there often .The selections on the brunch menu offers a drink ,main dish ,and coffee.Our waitress was responsive and respectful.
Chef Jeffrey circulated around the dining room and greeted us at our table. He even personally
brought a change of salad for my friend .
I will return !3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMFelt like homeI usually go to Atlantic Grill in Lincoln Center owned by the same people. I always have a great time there so I thought I'd check out Ocean Grill as a change of pace. I felt just like I was at Atlantic Grill which turned out to be a good thing. Their seafood tower was just as fresh and delicious as was my entire seafood dinner. Tables are a little cramped, but no worse than most places in Manhattan. They have a very diverse and reasonably priced wine list. Although Atlantic Grill is much closer to my apartment I would certainly go back to Ocean Grill if I'm in the neighborhood.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe are coming here for 20We are coming here for 20 years - every time visit New York City.
