  • "This was our second time there. Three out of four of us really enjoyed our meals. Oysters are fresh and delicious. Blackened Montauk swordfish was outstanding. Stuffed shrimp very, very good. The Baked Alaska was more for show than flavor. We will return!"

  • "We used to eat here when it was McCormick & Schmick's and didn't try Oceanaire until Saturday. The food is great and the decor beautiful. My husband and I both had specials, Artic Char and Diver Scallops, and this restaurant is now on our "go to" list. A bonus would be to get Rita as your server. She's very sweet and attentive."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "While the food, service and ambiance were lovely, we were surprised by the prices which were quite high. That might account for the fact that the restaurant was not overly busy while we were there. Would only return for a special occasion."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "The foos was quite good and the service was excellent. The server overheard that it was a friend's birthday so she came with a dessert... It was quite good. Again, a nice touch!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "I fine dine frequently and the quality of the food here just does not meet the price point on the menu. Tried several dishes and nothing really wowed me to return. All entrees on menu are $30+ And a la carte. Service and ambiance was very good."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "My beau treated us to a splendid meal at Oceanaire Restaurant and the food was divine with impeccable service from Danielle. We look forward to visiting again with friends and family. This dining experience is a special treat. Thanks for the memories."

  • "Ate here for the first time last Friday and had an excellent experience. The food was prepared well. The service and our waiter Philip were excellent and the entire staff was attentive coming around to ask how everything was. I even received a phone call a couple of days later from the manager to ask how we enjoyed our dinner. We are going back this week."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "This was my first and last time here. Overpriced and probably the worst soft shell crabs I have ever eaten! I should have sent them back! $33.00 for one medium and one very small overcooked crabs that were not fresh! They were highly recommended by our server. The potatoes au gratin were raw and I did tell our server who conveniently forgot to remove them$ from the bill until we complained."

  • "The food at Oceanaire was very good, but very pricey!"

  • "Good food. But not great - overpriced for what you get."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We arrived early for our reservation and were seated immediately. Had water, bread and olives and pickles on the table. No one came to ask for a cocktail order for nearly 25 minutes. The waitstaff really lacked knowledge of drink menu, food menu and specials. I had to explain what Bourbon & Gingerale drink was. As the night went on the service did improve a bit. For a restaurant that said Business Casual they allowed some sloppily dressed people in which took away from the experience. Espresso was some of the most bitter and worse I've every had. This was my first and likely last time dining at The Oceanaire. Would pick Morton's over this location any day."

  • "Unbeatable service and incredible food. The choice of entries is creative and diverse. There is something for all tastes."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I went for the seafood special and it was amazing. The food and wine pairing was great and the service is impeccable. I would recommend anyone to go. The happy hour menu is also good. Wish they would offer more specials :)"

  • "The food was very good and the atmosphere was pleasant. The waitstaff was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu, but noticeably inexperienced. Overall it was a good dinner and a nice night out."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "Riverside Square Mall now boasts one of the best seafood restaurants I've ever been to. The Oceanside Seafood Room, part of the Landry group of restaurants, has great food, an extensive wine list, with some nice ones by the glass, and is a welcome addition to Bergen County. Prices are high, but the food is impeccable. Save room at the end for the baked Alaska."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "This restaurant is very expensive for what it is, as is Chart House, its sister firm. Bonefish Grill, which has a similar "steak house" approach, is a much better value. I would only return for a reimbursed business meeting or some special occasion for which it was requested by my guest(s)."
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "My husband and I have been here 4 times and we've been beyond satisfied each time. The service is always great and the food has exceeded our expectations. We intend to try everything on the menu."

  • "The service was exceptional. Wonderful decor and a great dining experience. Every meal was wonderful. I really can't say enough as we were a party of 8 celebrating my dad's birthday. A great time and I definitely recommend Oceanaire."

  • "Living in Baltimore, I have frequented the Harbor East location many times. I went to this location with clients and was disappointed. When asked what the lobster sizes offered that evening, I was told 1" 1/4. This was at 6pm in the evening. I have regularly ordered 2" 1/2 and 3" lobsters from the Baltimore location. The other entrees ordered were tasty, but overall the experience was not what I expected."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Oceanaire is a very elegant restaurant with fabulous service and high quality food. The menu is diverse and while it focuses on "fresh fish" does offer other alternatives. Would recommend for lunch or dinner."

  • "we went for fathers day brunch - we were one of the first customers there and the service was very slow. he was unsure of the brunch menu. then when someone ordered lox onions and eggs (which was on the listing as we entered the restaurant) we were told that that was no longer available. how could a seafood restaurant open for brunch not have lox? another person asked for the crab cake benedict with the eggs over medium. so not only did it take over 30 minutes to get our food (people seated after us got their food and were almost done eating when ours came) but the eggs on the benedict were poached and runny. they were sent back and 10 minutes later more poached eggs arrived. I don't think we will be back for brunch."

  • "My husband and I have been here 3 times, twice for dinner and once for lunch...we've been more than satisfied with the food and the service has been great."

  • "Went for our anniversary expecting to pay more than usual but it was very overpriced. Food was very fresh and it was a very nice restaurant ! Just felt it was a little too overpriced for what we had so will not go back."

  • "Tried Oceanaire 3 times already. Really was hoping each time we went we would love it but we don't. The service and food are just ok. Had several different apps ,entrees, and desserts now and none are really that good. For the prices it's definitely not worth it. We eat at upscale restaurants all the time and don't mind paying for it when the food and service are great. "

  • "A bit overpriced but generally worth it. Try the clams casino and chad. Winners! Also, extremely generous in comping great deserts on special occasions."

  • "Overall restaurant was quite good. Good place for tasty fish. The Char over cous-cous was delightful. They were offering Cakebread Chardonnay for an Incredible $10 a glass...very suprised! Also had a bowl of chowder...spicy and filled with flavor. Service was ok...had to ask for water and bread refills 2x. Waitress was nice but extremely rushed. "

  • "The food was amazing. However, there was a hair in our potatoes. The staff was great but for the price of the meals they should be more careful with baking hair into the dishes. Smh oceanaire. "

  • "We had such a great memorable night from the moment we walked in. Our personalized anniversary menu made into a great keepsake. Chris our waiter was outstanding. We followed all of his recomendations and he did not steer us wrong. Shrimp and Grits, Salmon with blue cheese butter and lump crab cakes were amazing. The surprise baked alaska and the Kettle One Cosmos were the perfect touch. Cant wait to come back. Thank you so much for making oyr night extra special "
