A word from Ocean Room
The Ocean Room is a fun & unique destination for sushi and seafood lovers in San Diego's Gaslamp Quarter. Our bright contemporary interior and exhibition style kitchen set the stage for our oyster display and hand made sushi presentation. With menu offerings such as Surf & Turf, Ahi Poke, Bouillabaisse, and several varieties of oysters and sushi available daily, Ocean Room can proudly satisfy any dinner party's requests. Our dishes were thoughtfully created to capture the natural flavors of local seafood, enhanced with both unique recipes and creative presentation.

Our patio dining and window tables offer a view of the energy of the Gaslamp Quarter, San Diego primary entertainment district. We're close to Petco Park, Horton Plaza & the Convention Center, and are centered among the main hotels, theaters, shops & nightclubs

  • "Food & service by our bar man was great! We were lucky that they had room at the bar because the didn't have our open table reservation when we arrived. Worked out because it was just me & a friend but not sure I'd use open table again for a res at this place."

  • "We went to the happy hour for an early dinner before going back to the hotel to get ready to dance the night away at the Onyx nightclub. The food was excellent, and especially the 1/2 price sushi rolls, which were exceptional! The portions are generous, the calamari was great and also the oysters at a great price. A very popular spot on 5th!"

  • "Great sushi, great service, great ambience. There are a lot of choices in the Gaslamp District, so if you're having trouble making a decision (and who wouldn't?), then get a little crazy and try the Ocean Room. If you're lucky, Megs will be your server, so instead of wasting time doing that "what looks good?" thing with your forefinger and your lips, you can just trust a great server for her brilliant recommendations. Life is long! (seriously, what's longer than life?) Live well!"

  • "Have found my new FAVORITE place for Sushi ! This was our 1st time here too. We had the rolls, we like to split them. We ate 4 rolls, We Never eat 4. If we had bigger stomachs we would have eaten more it was that good. Picture eating a really good desert where you close your eyes and say "UMMMMMMM". Seriously the rolls we ate were that good! The wine recommended was excellent. The Bartender really knew his stuff. The only thing slightly negative was the parking, it was 4 blocks away & in 3 inch heels her feet hurt when we got there, but it was a great way to walk off dinner...LOL. Next time I think we might try out one of those bicycle cabs."

  • "reservation made for 5:30, resturant was half full. 1st course arrived at 6:15, 2nd course a little after 7. By 7:30 i asked for our desserts to go. Resturant was filling up when we started to leave.i felt sorry for the wait staff who kept apologizing for the slow service. salad was good, sushi roll was ok, chocolate genache dessert not good at all."

  • "I was there on a Tuesday night by myself and there was hardly anyone else in the restaurant. The service was good, the food was good and the restaurant ambiance was good. Nothing outstanding, but everything was fine."

  • "We had to ask the hostess to get our server for us after waiting for about 10 minutes with menus but no water. And it seemed to be inconvient for him to serve us. For instance, he broughts us our iced tea but no sweetners...nor did he ask if we wanted any. Once again, the hostess to the rescue! (She, by the way, was awesome!) The appetizers were awful (salmon cakes & potstickers) but the entrees were very good (the sashima roll & the cajun pasta). I think that really the biggest issue is that they're trying to do too many things. Be a cajun place or be a sushi place or be an Italian place. Pick one."

  • "it took forver to bring our food out, which were just appetizers. first, our order of calamari came out with some "pubes" on it, so we sent it back. then, they forgot about us for an hour and finally brought out the rest of our food. tables were extremely small to even have a few drinks on. went with a goupon, but that'll probably be the last time we go there."
    Dined on 7/10/2013
  • "One of the best meals I have ever had! I had the seabass and it was amazing! My boyfriend had the seafood pasta and her really enjoyed it! The staff was all very nice and helpful."

  • "I hosted a dinner meeting here and the food and service was great. It was a Saturday night and the later it got the more lively the Bar scene became. I would recommend but note that the weekends might get loud and bustling."
    Dined on 5/4/2013
  • "Our hotel recommended Ocean Room and we were a little disappointed. The place was empty and the service a bit slow. Also, there was a stong smell of cigarette smoke for most of the meal."
    Dined on 4/2/2013
  • "One of the best oyster eating events EVER! We sat at the 'hot bar' not the sushi bar. We watched them cool every dish right there in front of us. We got fresh tasting sushi and amazing oysters but every dish looked like something we wanted to order"
    Dined on 3/18/2013
  • "The food was good, but the service terrible I had to get a refill every time and ask for more bread, they didn't even bother to check on us until they brought out our food."
    Dined on 2/13/2013
  • "Took my girlfriend here and we both loved it. I do wish it wasn't connected to the other restaurant because it takes away from the ocean room experience. Food was great though and I would go back for their happy hour menu."
    Dined on 2/14/2013
  • "It happened to be Valentines Day and we had a group of 20. So that's probably not a good start. The waiter did all he could to keep everyone happy throughout the dinner with attending to the table, keeping the drinks coming, etc. however it took 2 + hours to get the table served. When the meals did finally arrive, they came out 2 and three orders at a time so the table never ate all at once. We had five participants get up and leave prior to the meals coming to the table. The manager was called to the table towards the end of the meal to explain the reasoning behind the bad service and continued to try and defend the service and that they did everything possible to keep our table full up with drinks and appitisers."
    Dined on 2/14/2013
  • "I ordered the seafood stew and was very disappointed with this dish. My firend ordered some suhis and was equally non impressed. The noise level was also high for this restaurant so I would not recommend this place to my friends."
    Dined on 1/29/2013
  • "Had a great time. My wife really enjoyed the Sushi, and I had a lovely Filet Mingon. Service was fantastic, the food was very good and the price was spot on!Did not dine in the Bar area, but popped my head round and looked like a lot of fun."

  • "Super great staff very iendly and the early bird happy hour sushi prices and selections are OUTSTANDING ! for the price !"

  • "We came on a dead night at 6 and sat in the restaurant area. We were the only ones there, but it filled in a bit afterwards. Meghan (our server) was excellent! She always attended to our needs just at the right time, even when it got more crowded. The cooks and helpers were all great and the food was excellent. Because there was no one inside when we first arrived, we were wondering if we hit a 'bad joint'. But we left being glad we stopped here to eat and to get the inside scoop from Meghan about other great places to eat during our stay in San Diego. As for what to eat... we randomly picked from the menu and everything we had was good, so we need to come back and try some other dishes. PS: The sushi was very fresh..."

  • "We ate outside, and it was a great scene in The Gaslamp District. Nice watching foot traffic outside, but the sushi rolls stole the show. Nice different selection then you see at many places, but just plain delicious!"

  • "My boyfriend and I went to Ocean Room for a nice romantic dinner. The ambiance was amazing and the service was outstanding. Our waitress was nice, friendly and very attentive. The hostess was also extremely nice and friendly which was good since we sat at an outdoor table right next to her. The only thing that was left to be desired was the food. We ate several different types of sushi and they were not amazing. They were good enough but did not stand out."

  • "showed up for our dinner reservation at the Ocean room five minutes early , and they would not let us in, not even let us have a seat at the bar....went to the resturant next door and even tho they where not open, yet let us sit in the bar......until we went to our reservation.....we had a drink at the friendly place , because we had a groupon went next store to the "ocean roo" ,....eat our food and then went back ( several times) to the friendly itialian resturant....for drinks and dinner a couple of times since, I will never go back to the Ocean room."
