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.

    Dined for our anniversary dinner recently. Service was fabulous, probably one of the most knowledgable severs we've encountered at a restaurant. I think his name was Michael. Very good. I had the grilled salmon which was slightly overlooked, my wife had scallops which were fabulous. Prob the best scallops she (we) has had. I give it a 50/50 because it's not necessarily a restaurant Id run back to. Service was great, but the food (for their prices) wasn't really worth it overall. Maybe an off night.

    The service was some of the best I have ever had at any restaurant. The menu selections were very good. Our disappointment came when we ordered. We had a party of 4 for 7:30. We all placed our order. 10 minutes later 2 of us had to order something else. 10 minutes after that, a third person in our party had to order something else. All due to not having enough fresh seafood in stock. I understand they have only fresh seafood, but running out of 3 different entrées at 7:30? Spoke with the manager, who was nice and comped desert but was not very apologetic about the situation. The food was good but I expected a little better given the cost. Quite expensive.

    Everything was just average. No surprises. Good service, but was shocked that they had no seafood except grilled, pan-seared or broiled fish. There are so many exciting ways to cook seafood and this was not the place. They tout fresh fish flown in daily, yet the menu was exactly the same the entire week I stalked it prior to going. No whole fish preparation and all the food was extremely bland. The mashed potatoes and salad dressing were terrible. No seasoning in the crab cakes and no sauce on the Pacific Corvina "luis" style although the fish was quite tasty. I expected much more for the money spent here. They just need a chef with imagination to guide the kitchen and I think they would have a chance of getting my business back.

    The ambiance is elegant and the noise level makes conversation enjoyable. The wine list is interesting and reasonable. The service was excellent. The batter on the fried shrimp was slightly sweet. The tartar sauce was bland. My husband's scallops were gritty. The lobster & Gouda Mac-n-cheese was disappointing. The only bright spot of our dinner, the match stick fries were truly delicious.

    My wife and I had dinner before going to the Fox Theatre for a show. The food was absolutely wonderful. The St. Georges Scallops with lobster risotto were absolutely the best, sweetest, succulent and tasy that I've ever eaten. The Lobster smoked gouda mac and cheese is a thing of rare and inspired culinary glory. The Clam Chowder was a smooth creamy wonder. The carolina trout was excellent as well! The service was attentive without being "hovering" and was simply outstanding. We don't get downtown often for dinner since we live in the suburbs, but I must say this dinner was definitely worth the trip! Thank you for making it a wonderful evening for my wife and I.

    I went to Oceanaire with a friend for my birthday. When we entered, we were asked whether we wanted a booth or a table and my friend mentioned that it was my birthday , so I should choose. Within a few minutes of being seated, we were handed menus (which are printed daily.) Across the top of mine, it said "Happy Birthday, Sarah." Things just got better from there. The service was excellent as was the food. At the end of the meal, without having ordered dessert, we were gifted with a scrumptious Baked Alaska. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.

    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.

    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.
