Great service & nice atmosphere.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and daughter had aMy wife and daughter had a delicious meal on Mother's Day. A quality experience to be shared with the one you love.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOceanaire - Always ExcellentStarting with the great daily selection of oysters, whether old favorites like east coast Malpeque or west coast Naked Roy, or less known choices like Waquoit, the selections at Oceanaire are always fresh, varied and plentiful. This trip one of our party branched out and had the Escargot Bourguinonne, which had the lightest flaky puff pastry I've ever had with escargot (yes, he shared). The specialty entrees just seem keep getting more refined and perfected. Special note has to go to the wild Alaskan Halibut preparation, which has a perfect balance of enhancements to the fish. And the sweet potato souffle is just in a class by itself as an indulgently delicious5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst TimerThis was my first time at The Oceanaire Seafood Room and I wasn't disappointed. Everything was delicious and the service was great. I'll be back soon.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place!Everything was really nice. Food and service was great. The only disappointing thing was, a friend told me they printed a special menu when you let them know its a special occasion. I spoke with someone from the restaurant, they advised me to just add what the occasion was and the persons name. I did that when I made my reservation but our menus didn't have his name or any special notes. So I'm not sure if I did something wrong, wasn't given the correct info or what may have happened.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMy FavoriteThis restaurant is my wife's favorite. I had never been to Oceanaire so I decided to make reservations for us. Let me tell you that this place was amazing!! I see why she loves this restaurant.

I have never had better surf and turf.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place offer a reallyThis place offer a really great selection of fresh seafood and choice cuts of steaks.

When we got there is was cold in our area of the restaruant. The waiter got that taken care of immediately. We were given tips about the menu. The food was excellent as well as abudant. We celebrated our 20th anniversary and the waiter brought us a complimentary dessert. All in all the evening was one to remember.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMMother's Day 2013I took mom for Mother's Day. All meals were scrumptious. One member of party even ordered a steak that was tasty. Mom had crab cakes and swore they were best she had ever eaten. Com chowder was rich and flavorful. Salmon and blackened red fish were both to die for. I highly recommend. Food and service were great. It is pricy so don't go if money s an issue but worth every dime.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTop Notch .... pleasantly surprisedVery impressed. Had been in several other locations, but this was the first visit in Atlanta. Had a pre-conceived idea or notion since it is owned by Landry's. But I was pleasantly surprised and would recommend this place to anyone.
The food was very good, some would say excellent. The service, from waiter Gene, was outstanding. The manager, Josh, came over to the table and gave us lots of his time, including the answering of all questions about operations, etc.
The place IS pricey. But I thought it was worth it tonight. I also recommend the au gratin potatoes. They are outstanding and frankly, the best I have ever had, anywhere.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat nightMade last minute birthday reservations for 10 and got the best table in the house. Food was great, service was excellentt, and ambiance was perfect.

She liked her name on the menu.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMParty of FourFriends in town from Delaware and we went to Oceanaire for dinner; first time for all four of us. We had four completely different seafood dinners and everyone raved about the food. Service was good and the restaurant was very nice. Not too crowded so the noise level was low. Excellent dining experience.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday Dinner at OceanaireThis was our first visit to Oceanaire. We had a birthday celebration and there were 10 in our party. We had a wonderful time at Oceanaire. They made my daughter's 18th birthday memorable. Our waiter, Daniel, did an excellent job explaining the menu; he even provided some education on the different oysters and have a brief history on how some of the dishes were created. He made a great experience better.
We will return.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMA Perfect Place for Special TimesMy wife and I have been dining at the Oceanaire for over 6 years, and only on special occasions. The wait staff and management never fail to remember us, and in fact remember our preferences, likes and dislikes. We usually get the same waiter. They treat us in a way to make us feel very special, which is why I return. As for the food, I'd eat there every day if budget and not gaining 50 lbs allowed it! The food is excellent, fresh, perfectly prepared and beautifully presented. There's nothing like fresh fish, which is a challenge when you are hundreds of miles from the nearest ocean. I would recommend the Oceanaire for any occasion, but it's perfect when you want something special.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMTHIS PLACE WAS WONDERFUL,THIS PLACE WAS WONDERFUL, the waitress was extremely attentive, the food was ridiculously good and the drink were not watered down!

we had a nice waitress/server that took real good care of us from jamaica.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEverything was perfect BUT the FOODTook my fiance here for his birthday because he is a foodie. He ordered the bone-in ribyeye, grilled asparagus, au gratin potatoes and gouda mac and cheese. I ordered fish and chips...I'm not a meat fan, should have ordered a salad in hindsight...
- Mac and Cheese
- Au Gratin Potatoes
- Very low noise level
- Ambience of restaurant was great
- Steak was ordered well-done but was "blackened". Management promptly had another re-cooked to replace without issue BUT when we got home, it was also "blackened".
- Asparagus was blah.
- Fish was fried extremely hard and was dried out.
- Fries were blah and cold.
Stoney River Steakhouse isn't as plush but definitely still our #1 choice for4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderfulEveryone knew who we were and that it was our anniversary and kept congratulating us. They put extra touches on the menu and a great dessert and helped make our evening special. The food was absolutely amazing and the service was fantastic.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy Birthday and Great Food!I took my husband last Saturday for his birthday. This is a very nice and inviting restaurant. We started the night with a hot appetizer: fried red chili calamari with warm Asian Vegetables. The red chili sauce was delicious and the calamari was seasoned just right. For dinner my husband had old fashioned fried jumbo shrimp/sea salt matchstick fries and a side of mac & smoked gouda. OMG the mac & smoked gouda was to die for. It's more than enough for two people to share. I had the baked stuffed shrimp crabmeat stuffing with creamy linguine. Everything about this dish made my palate very happy. Great restaurant, hostess and waitress were so sweet. A little pricey, but worth it to splurge.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food; excellentExcellent food; excellent service! What a pleasure to dine here.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Easter Brunch!!Food was very good. Tory was an awesome server.

We will definitely be back.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMI took my mom and my wifeI took my mom and my wife out to celebrate their respective career successes. I left a note with my reservation asking that the server congratulate both of the women with me for their accomplishments. The maître d' did so, welcoming both women by name and referencing their achievements precisely, as did the waitress who served us that evening, and a celebratory desert was brought to the table to close the meal (Baked Alaska, and it was both a visual masterpiece and delicious). The salmon appetizer was terrific, my wife said that the spinach salad that she had was one of the best salads that she had ever eaten, and the fish entrees the ladies ordered were cooked perfectly, as was my filet which was served with perfectly seasoned shrimp.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxed diningClassic ambiance of a fine restaurant. High back booths and uncluttered atmosphere. Fresh seafood cooked to perfection.

A little pricey but for the amount of food and the taste, definitely worth every penny. Service was outstanding, absolutely wonderful staff throughout. Definitely will recommend, best seafood restaurant I've been too, period.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWent there for the first timeWent there for the first time and was truly impressed.

A myriad of wonderful events. Thank you!!!3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThank You OceanaireI was looking for a very nice place to celebrate My Wife 40th birthday, and Oceanaire was the perfect place. I made the reservation and stated in the comments that it was my wife's 40th birthday, and when we arrived everyone that greeted us wished her a happy birthday. When we were seated she had a special menu that stated "Happy 40th Birthday". That was so special she framed the menu. They even had a special dessert prepared for us that was literally on fire. The valet, the service, the food, and the atmosphere was the best I've had in Atlanta. Elegant experience with southern hospitality.
I'll be back in a couple of weeks!!!3/9/2013 12:00:00 AMDine like a Rock Star!Always welcomed by management and staff. They accommodate table recommendations and last minute changes. What a positive experience! I typically book using OpenTable. That advance notice is provided to the staff and they make me feel like a Rock star when taking me to my table and serving us. Clients have noticed ... Which is why I go back so often.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had dinner reservationsWe had dinner reservations for 6:30 and the place was empty when we got there. That worried me. By 7:30 the place was packed. Service and food were excellent. I had lobster bisque; it was one of the best I have ever had. I also had scallops and gnocchi. My husband had risotto and fish. It was delicious. We also had a side of mac & cheese and spinach. It was great. We had too much food, but it was all perfect. I would definitely go back again. Perfect dinner spot if you have 8pm tickets to the symphony.3/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBill and Sara KrochalisOceanaire is reliably excellent, with a great selection of the freshest seafood, artfully subtle preparations that enhance the food, not overwheming it in another flavor or consistency. The service is outstanding, prompt and friendly with genuinely valuable suggestions (for the best of the best, ask for Fairuz), Overall, everything always seems just right, the hallmark of a superbly managed restaurant,2/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Place to EtThis is my favorite restaurant. Food and service are always fantastic! We love going here.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a treat.We return to Oceanaire again and again because it is always excellent. The seafood is fresh and delicious, either simply but perfectly prepared, or in one of the chef's creative preparations. It is well worth asking the servers' advice they are as knowledgable as they are friendly. We especially recommend Fairuz; great service that's the perfect blend of attentive and unobtrusive, and recommendations that match your taste and preferences with a thorough understanding of the kitchen.
Overall, although it may seem odd to say, you can't be a repeat customer without noticing just how well-run this place is. Everything is just always done right, from honoring reservations to menu choices to the timing of service. A great choice.1/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is my most favorite restaurantThis is my most favorite restaurant in the city. I go here as often as possible.
