    Our recent evening at Oceana was quite nice. We did ask to be moved from the middle of the restaurant to a table by the windows and the hostess was able to accommodate this request. 4 different meals were ordered, and two appetizers, and everything was quite tasty and the portion size was ample. The Italian Pinot Grigio was fantastic :) I hope to try the patio out next time the weather is agreeable. I have already recommended the restaurant to colleagues this morning and will be back!

    I have eaten here several times - nice place to go if you want to have a conversation with your guest. When the weather is cooperative you can't beat the outdoor seating (inside seating is nice as well). Have always had outstanding service here. Food is very good. Good food and great service - exactly what I'm looking for when I eat out

    It was our 10th anniversary and we were looking for somewhere we had never been before. I love seafood and my husband loves red meat. We were not disappointed. We both had seafood appetizers, he had the Jumbo Prawns and Scallops in garlic butter and I had the Smoked Salmon Canapes that came in endive boats. They were both perfect. For the main course, my husband had the Rack of Lamb, he said it was the best he ever had and I had the Grilled Seafood Brochette. It was delicious and it gave me the opportunity to have many different types of seafood on one plate. We would go back to Oceana anytime for any reason, especially for the seafood.

    The food is without reproach, and is what keeps me coming back. The lunch special is always good, and offers great value. The service is tolerable, but nothing close to exceptional. Wait times have been too long 2 of the last 3 times I visited, and each time the restaurant is not more than 1/3 full (for lunch), so it shouldn't take 30+ minutes to bring out the meals. The decor is nice, and the ambiance has potential, but with the restaurant so thinly occupied, it is very quiet.

    There was a large group of us & we all enjoyed our food. Those of us who ordered fish dishes were more impressed that those who did not (steak or pasta). Service was good, ambience is nice. The location is great. Not a 5-star but definitely worth trying if you'd like some amazing seafood options cooked perfectly.

    Overall we were very impressed with Oceana. I had made a reservation through the open table app, but ended up getting stuck late at work and had to call and let them know we were going to be late. The manager was understanding and pushed back our reservation without hesitation. When we arrived he was very hospitable and had paid attention to what I requested on the open table app, offering us a seat on the patio even though it was already getting late out. He turned the heat lamp on near our table and brought me a throw blanket in case it started to get cool outside. Our server was professional and friendly, the food was great, and they even gave us a free dessert because we were celebrating a birthday! We will be definitely be back.

    Wonderful restaurant in all aspects. Seafood brochette was outstanding with large shrimp, scallops, halibut and a softer white fish (?) and the Pacific pan fried oysters were a great starter (accompanied by tabasco sauce!). One small issue - the Greek salad had a few too many tomatoes at the expense of the other vegetables. Or server was terrific and the wine list was wide ranging but a bit pricey.

    Oceana is an old favorite, but hadn't eaten there for a year or two. Appetizers were good, but we were disappointed to see the seafood salad, with octopus, squid, etc. is no longer on the menu. Four of us had dinner, and three meals (sole and orange roughy) were very good - one of us felt the grilled halibut was overcooked. Overall a good meal

    No handicap parking for my guess. The Lobster Bisque taste was very good, a little light on the Lobster. The Arctic Char dish and the Halibut was unbelievable awesome, it had a great sear on the skin and it was seasoned and cooked to perfection. The Blacken Pickerel weekly feature was in fact not blacken but over seasoned with cayenne pepper about teaspoon was scraped off and the skin was not crisp it was soggy and the first bite ruin my guess taste buds for the rest of the meal. The Seafood Bouillabaisse was rated as good and my guess was a little disappointed that it had rice in it he felt it was more of a jambalaya minus the sausage. Return (Maybe)

    Taste of food great! Presentation of food, service, wine list & atmosphere definitely did not measure up! Main course & dessert were piled in the middle of the plate with no eye appeal. Very burnt Crème Brule had two blackberries rolling on the plate. Inexperienced waiter had no concept of service skills. Maître D’ dressed very casual compared to rest of the staff & had no idea what discretion or service means. Reminded us nine times re two hour dining time limit, including standing beside our table speaking & pointing with fingers & loud enough for us to hear. We voiced our complaint at the end of our “two hour” evening. The Maître D’ said “I’m sorry...BUT...We left. Although the food was tasty, we WILL NOT recommend Oceana to anyone!!!

    The food was bland and quite unremarkable. I felt that I could have had a much more exciting and delicious meal for the same price- especially given the downtown location. Although the staff were friendly and courteous, the food just was not worth the time or money. The creativity goes about as far as steamed veggies tossed in butter.
