A word from Oceanaire Seafood Room - Atlanta
As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.

    I have traveled by Oceanair several times, always wondering about the Resturant. After eating there Saturday night it is now one of my favorite fresh fish restaurants in Atlanta. I decided to try it with my parents, whom claim to be vegans but still eat fish. The food was absolutely delicious. Our waiter recommended the chiefs special. I had the Tuna. The service was great, wine perfect, and desserts to die for. Over all a wonderful experience. One word of advice, don't miss the $5 parking for the Resturant, it is hard to find so watch for the small sign for valet off Peachtree street next their building.

    It was my husband's birthday and we had a fantastic time! We celebrated with two other couples and we all enjoyed ourselves. The food was excellent and sides large enough to accommodate the group. My husband was so surprised to have a take home menu with personal wishes for a Happy Birthday. We will return!

    The ambiance is inviting, white table cloth centered by dimly-lit candles. Our server's name was Lucky and she was not only knowledgeable of the menu, but conversed in a way to recommend items to your liking. Louis took great care of the table. We began with the Fried Asparagus coupled with bowls of soup. The tomato crab bisque was amazing. I had the traditional surf and turf, magnificent and my husband had salmon. He praised it. Overall, I would recommend the Oceanaire Seafood Room to anyone looking for an easy upscale wonderful dining experience.

    I am always generally pleased when I hosts guests at Oceannaire-especially those who have never gone. With this most recent visit, my guest ended up coming back the very next day. There was a bit of a mix up on my order but it was minor and was promptly taken care of. One of my favorite restaurants!

    We started with "Perfect G&T" cocktails. Hendricks gin, elderflower liqueur and tonic. They were so good we had another. At $15 though, next time we'll just order one. The clam chowder was the best my wife ever tasted, and she is from New England. My bisque was good. Our entree, king salmon, was flawless and had a nice, mild flavor. Well worth $40. My wife had the white blend wine. She called it delicious. My red blend was not as good a choice. Dessert was a baked Alaska. It should have stayed in Alaska. Our server, David, was excellent: Attentive yet not overbearing. Bottom line: Highly recommended. For some, the evening might seem a little steep for a couple of hundred bucks. I thought it had real value.

    Excellent value compared to McKendricks & Capital Grille. It's not cheap, but the service, food, and ambience will be worth what you pay. By comparison, the service & ambience you get at McKendricks is a little less stellar for more money. The service at Capital Grille is only a tiny bit more elite, and the food is a tiny bit more delectable lol, but not sure those incremental increases in goodness are worth the extra 30% that you'll pay in the end. Ocenaire has consistently been a great place for our special occasions.

    Our party enjoyed our food and the service was good. But, I don't think I can say that anything was stellar or particularly creative. It is good seafood at high prices. I'm not sure I would eat here again in view of all of the outstanding restaurants in Atlanta and even in Midtown. I don't mind spending money on good food, but I expect evidence of creativity or something very special for the prices on this menu.

    Dined at Oceanaire for the first time on July 13. It was very good. We tried several dishes the best being Shrimp & Grits. The crab cakes were excellent. The King Crab was mediocre at best. However the service was outstanding. Our server was Lucky and she could not have been more knowledgeable of her products and her service timing was perfect. Very good experience.

    Overall the Oceanaire delivered an average experience. Food was good but nothing outstanding. I was surprised that of all the seafood there were no gulf fish selections. It is a Landrys restaurant so you should set your expectations accordingly. Location is great and if you are staying in Midtown it is convenient. Nice setting inside the restaurant and bar looked popular but we did not try it.

    The service was great and they were very attentive. It was my husband's birthday and they printed up his name on the menu which was nice. It was a pretty restaurant but not very busy and it was Saturday night. I'm thinking that since it is downtown Atlanta, it may be busier during the week with business people. The waitress was very knowledgable and professional. My only complaint was the food. I thought it was mediocre at best. It certainly wasn't " bad" but thought the less expensive Bonefish restaurant actually has better tasting food.

    I went all out for my wife's 30th birthday and Oceanaire didn't let me down. First we ordered the shrimp and grits, it was outstanding. My wife got the sea scallops from the chef selections and was very pleased with it. I ordered the surf and turf from the chef selections, it was a 6oz filet with a mini crap crake on top and it came with a small side of Gouda Mac & Cheese, it was simply perfect. The check wasn't too bad either. If you want great seafood, this is the place for you!
