    Service was very good. Clam chowder was supurb, trout NOT so much, and sorbet good. One in party brought food up twice in restaurant's restroom and frequented the toilet at home throughout the night there after. We will NOT be returning.

    Feels like a chain restaurant. Food is good but overpriced. Service lacking. Waitress never brought bread, forgot silver ware after clearing appetizers, very FAKE sincerity from staff. I'd go back if somebody else was paying. The food was good - but not a good value and the service and atmosphere didn't compensate for that.

    We started with an acceptable ceviche. Our friend had crab cakes. They had a lot of crab, but were not crispy at all. We had the restaurant week appetizers - avocado salad & clam chowder. Both were delicious. Our main courses were the barbecue shrimp & grits and wagyu sirloin. My shrimp was over cooked; my grits were gummy. Normally we adore wagyu, but this was not any better than any other steak. Our friend shared some of her halibut with a smoked sauce - too smoky & the halibut was overcooked. Our restaurant week desserts - blueberry bread pudding and Smores Chocolate Mousse - were literally inedible. We didn't eat them. Our friends had a chocolate cake that was OK. Overall, I would likely not return except to try the raw oyster bar.

    My favorite restaurant in Dallas, the food is beyond delicious! Nate was our waiter...he was amazingly amazing! He was fun, friendly, honest, helpful, and he made our evening feel like we had just made a new friend! The food is always to die for, so fresh and yummy! Thanks for a wonderful night! If you get lucky, you will get to meet Nate too!

    We took my mom and stepdad here to celebrate their 20th anniversary and it was great. They printed special menus with a "happy anniversary " greeting at the top and congratulated them on their anniversary. Service was very attentive, food was excellent and although it was a vibrant scene, it wasn't too loud to carry on a conversation. Seafood is very fresh with so much to choose from. I recommend this restaurant.

    We reserved a table near the entrance, in a quiet area. The hostess seating us made sure that our party was comfortably situated, including our guest of honor, an older person with a walker. We enjoyed the ambience. It's bright enough for anyone to read the menu! Our food was reasonably good--fresh oysters especially tasty. My halibut was cooked overlong and dry--my only real complaint, but at over $40 a serving, I'd hoped for better.

    I have visited about six Oceanires and continue to always enjoy my experience. Service is always top-notch and the quality of seafood is typically excellent with an obsession to quality. Wonderful ambiance and wine list. I will say that my most recent experience was a bit of an aberration considering the Maine sea scallops I ordered were rubber-like. I did not want to send them back but would have been justified in doing so. Everyone else's food was terrific (one had halibut, another sole, and another had crab legs). We were celebrating my niece's 17th birthday and the wait staff made for such a fun and memorable evening.... in spite of the subpar scallops, I look forward to going back.

    My first visit to Oceanaire. We had a lunch meeting with a new client and found the atmosphere, food, and service to be excellent. A big plus was the ability to hold a conversation at normal levels which is not possible at the more popular restaurants. The ambience is upscale and this would be a nice place to have dinner with friends or a significant other

    We went to the Oceanaire for the first time to take advantage of a gift card and restaurant week. The oysters, which are one of the premiere items on the menu were nothing special. My husband ordered the halibut. It was very good but a very small portion for the price!! I had shrimp & grits which were yummy. The bread tasted like it had been warmed up in the microwave...spongy & chewy. The desserts were average. Our server was very knowledgeable, We won't return.

    My choice for Restaurant Week turned into a disappointment. There were 7 in our party, we tried everything on the special menu but the steak. We don't eat spicy- so the entrees marked "Dirty" had the sauces and spices on the side. The trout was dry and came on the plate with a sprig of parsley. The salmon, also dry, came with some rice. The shrimp were tasteless according to my husband, but came with rice. We started with clam chowder- the only success of the night. The desserts - sorbet: very good, PB&J donuts were stale, bread pudding with blueberry compote was dry. If this meal was designed to get us back- it failed.

    My husband and I had our anniversary dinner here, and it was lovely. We each had Chef's Selections - mine was sockeye salmon with fried rice, his was the scallops with mushroom risotto. I had the clam chowder as an appetizer and it was wonderful. I gave 3 stars for ambience only because I could've done without the TV screens. They weren't too terribly loud but seemed out of place for such a nice restaurant.

    Food was not worth the $325 that I paid for two persons (fish was over cooked and veggies too salty) and our server was too busy talking with another couple during our entire time at the restaurant on 07/31/2014. He apparently knew them from a previous visit. It was so bad that we heard the other couple tell our server that maybe he should ignore all their questions and go attend his other patrons. The restaurant could certainly use better cleaning. Our booth had several food spots on the seating surfaces. The Oceanaire in Denver, Colorado was superior to the Dallas restaurant in every aspect.

    We highly enjoyed the special Alaskan beer pairing dinner the food was great! The mussels were the best we have ever had. The Black Cod risotto, and King Salmon were also two others that we thoroughly enjoyed and look forward to having in the future. The beer was well paired, also. We look forward to our next visit and any beer or wine dinners.

    This was our first visit but we had a very enjoyable dinner. We shared the crab cake appetizer and were very impressed. the bread was delicious but the waiter didn't know where it came from. he also referred to the relish tray as a radish tray. i enjoyed the copper river salmon knowing it was the end of the season. served with Brussel sprouts and bacon, it was very flavorful. my wife had the same topping for her trout and it was very good. Because of its location at the Westin, using, and paying for valet parking ($7 with restaurant validation) , plus tip, was an expense i would prefer not to have.

    We had a very nice dining experience on our anniversary, neither of us drink and we shared a meal although we had soup, appetizer and desert, the waiter was attentive, suggested when we asked, gladly split our servings, we do tip accordingly knowing that our bill will be less and did not detect any reluctance on waiter not knowing we understand our bill will be less.

    Ordered the crab cake and barrel fish. The barrel fish was very chewy and felt way over cooked. I would have sent it back but it took so long to get the food in the first place i did not. The crab cake was the best i have ever eaten. Would go back for the crab cake, but will not order another piece of fish.

    My husband and I had the lobster, it was pretty good. We split the Brussels sprouts for our side dish and we didn't care for them. We had the crab cake as an appetizer, it was the highlight of the meal. The place is pretty outrageously expensive. The valet is $17, crazy even by Dallas standards. Our dinner for two was over $200. Pretty expensive unless your on an expense account.

    My wife's 2lbs steamed lobster was adequate. Mine however, less than satisfactory. Almost non-edible. I'm aware that other seafood eaters don't mind a lbs of poo: I Do. The claws became the highlight of my meal. Our waiter saw my face of discust and stressed: its the luck of the draw with lobsters. I do not have this problem at other upper echelon restaurants. Out of respect for Landry's, I will not name preferred restaurants of our choice but we're done with the Oceanaire. New customers may love it, but I'm a veteran of fine dining. If my check resembles a car note payment; my experience better FEEL as if it were actually worth the money. I've dined at a few Oceanaire locations nationally and since "the takeover", Supreme disappointment.

    Enjoyed a lobster dinner with excellent service for our first dining excursion to Oceanaire Seafood Room. We all enjoyed the food & the wine. Our server was the very best. Oceanaire Seafood Room would be a superb date night dinner spot as the setting is pleasant & romantic. We will definitely be returning. Regrettably the maître d' was arrogant. Our party was all women over 60, & after the hostess has asked our preference for seating in the empty dining room, we opted for a table. The maître d' then came up & whispered to the hostess to seat us upstairs. I thought that very rude considering our ages, & the fact that the downstairs was empty. Kindly the hostess asked us if upstairs was suitable & we said NO. The hostess was great.
