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 should have known to stay away from chains with all the great restaurants in Atlanta. On a Saturday night this place was empty. The fish was good but quote overpriced and had no garnishing. In short. Go elsewhere.

    Overall it was pretty good. Upon arrival the greeting was prompt and very friendly. Out waiter was a bit....different....but nice. The food was also pretty good. Not great. Just pretty good. We did send one item back and it was removed from the bill and apologies all 'round from the staff. We will certainly try this restaurant again but it could have been better. Last word -- for a weekend night it was pretty dead in the place. Usually as sign that the restaurant is going down the tubes. I hope not because there is potential to be great in this place.

    The Oceanaire Seafood Room must benefit from its location, where lots of lawyers and businesspersons dine on their clients' nickel or on expense accounts or just don't care how much stuff costs. I don't mind spending a lot on a nice meal and there are lots of less expensive options in the area, so I wasn't surprised by the price tag ($180 for two people after tip; that's 2 entrees, drinks, no apps or dessert) but underwhelmed by pretty much everything. Our meal was fine, nothing special. Service was OK but the wait staff spends an awful lot of time standing around talking to each other. Little details like stale bread served before the meal and our orders being slightly wrong contributed to the meh vibe.

    What a wonderful Sunday night experience. Not crowded, nice ambiance and very attentive service. We were celebrating a birthday and had a lovely surprise...the menu for the night had Orlando's name on it! nice touch! Our server (Lucky) was amazing. She made wonderful recommendations for the dinner, explained items on the menu and made sure we were happy. She was the best! The lobster was wonderful. Nice and buttery. The lobster mac 'n cheese was to die for. My only criticism on the veggies would be that the sauté spinach was a little bland. Would have enjoyed garlic sautéed in with it. The night ended with a special dessert for the birthday guy, Baked Alaska! Yummy!!! In all, our experience was delightful and we look forward to returning.

    Our first visit to the restruant. Both of us chose Chef's selection with appetizers. Scallops and shrimp were excellent. Cooked perfectly. Chowder was very creamy and an athantic taste for TN. Oysters Rockafeller, filling was tasty but oyster difficult to find.

    The service was outstanding. Thank you Faurose(sp?). The food was excellent. The only thing I would make patrons aware of is privacy. Our table, while in a great location and very comfortable, was adjacent to a servers station. While the booths are high backed, servers waiting at the station to attend to your every need seem to hover a bit and so, I felt that our privacy and private conversation was impacted. Yet, it was not to the extent that it was uncomfortable or I would've requested another table. Just be aware. They were very present right next to the booth.

    Almost all dishes were over-salted and therefore difficult or impossible to eat. I like salt but not this much! We sent the calamari back twice because it was inedible. The bibb salad was tasty but swimming in dressing. The grilled scallops in lemon caper sauce were only edible once removed from the incredibly salty sauce. Staff kept bumping my chair every time they passed by. The waiter had too many tables to be efficient. Overall, the experience was at the level of a chain restaurant and not worth the expense. We won't be going back.

    My wife and I went to Oceanaire for the first time the other night, we started with the crab cakes and had the Alaskan salmon for the main course. It was good especially the salmon but not great. The service was good but not great, they were very friendly when we arrived gave us a nice booth seat but didn't bring us any bread, forgot to open our bottle of wine. So that is why my overall impression was that it is good but not great.

    This is my favorite neighborhood place to dine. The service is always top notch and the food is always prepared to our desire. I have a nine year old daughter and my wife and I appreciate the fact that she is welcomed. Our family dines out at least 3 to 4 nights a week and we enjoy Oceanaire because it provides the best of intimacy, fine dinning, great service and yet very comfortable.

    Went for a special occasion lunch to celebrate our birthday. We started off with a cocktail, and a small tray of vegetables plus bread were brought to our table. We shared jumbo (and I mean "Jumbo") shrimp cocktail plus crab cake appetizers; a side of fried asparagus (a beautiful and delicious way to serve asparagus); and an entree of grilled scallops that were very tasty! We had a nice white wine recommended by our waiter. We were then surprised by a sweet little baked Alaska for dessert in honor of our birthday. We were treated like royalty, and even our menu was printed with our names and later rolled up like a diploma and presented to us before we left. A memorable birthday dining experience!

    We had a great experience in terms of service, greeted and seated properly, very romantic seating (albeit so dark the couple next to us used flashlights on their phone to read the menu), and our waiter was nice. Water was refilled and dishes removed promptly as well. We both had the prix fixe meal for Midtown Restaurant week and after our appetizer, we waited 30-40 min. for our main dish. The redfish came out completely dry and warm, and I couldn't cut into it with a fork. My husband's corvina was better. The crab cake was ok and the tomato crab bisque was quite good. Mango sorbet was good and tiramisu just ok. I complained and they comped my fish, but we just felt the food fell far short of the prices. I would never come spend the $ here.

The hostess was understanding and accommodating the entire time. My waited was also always addressing me by name when taking orders and checking on the table. The drinks at the bar were fantastic.

    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.
