All fabulous yet we wished the grilled asparagus would have had more a grilled flavor. The Baked Alaska and Strawberry Rhubarb cobbler with ice cream were wonderful as was the exceptionally good decaf.

Overall a wonderful experience.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMamazing- must visitFom the valet parking to dessert this place is top notch! We went for my husbands birthday.

Service was awesome as always and food amazing!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent fresh seafoodWe found excellent fresh seafood in the midwest, including several uncommon fish choices that were available just for a day or two. I had Alaskan Halibut which is usually available, and it was wonderful, plainly grilled. The key lime pie dessert was traditional, with just a bit of extra bite.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFresh Seafood Like NoneotherBeing Land-locked, Indiana is not know for fresh seafood. But that doesn't stop Oceanaire from serving some of the freshest seafood I have ever had!
Our server was very knowable and helpful suggesting dishes and entrees that we would enjoy and savor!
The evening was more than just dinner, it was an experience:)5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOverpriced for the qualityOverpriced for the quality of the food. Excellent service, nice atmosphere. The seafood quality just does not measure up.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome experienceWe had a wonderful dinner following the advice of our server! The crab cake was fabulous as was the baked Alaska dessert! Entrees were quite good and just the right size. Totally enjoyed our experience!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food & service, but pricey!Wonderful food, from the fresh oysters to our fish entree. Best seafood in Indy hands down. Service was as elegant as dining room.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Seafood in IndianapolisMy experience was excellent. I am from New England, so finding good seafood has been a serious challenge in this landlocked area. However, the quality of the seafood at Oceanaire rivals many restaurants from the northeast. The service and atmosphere are also superb. The menu is quite pricy, but the quality of the overall dining experience makes the price worth it. This is the perfect spot for a special occasion or romantic evening.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was awesome andThe service was awesome and the food excellent! Great fish and seafood. The filet with the surf and turf was off the charts!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat RestaurantWe had a great time for dinner. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We will definitely be going back.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMom's 76 th BdayWe eat here at least 6 or 7 times a year. Decided to take mom for her bday. They printed up special menus that said happy Bday. They also signed a card with all staff members signatures. Mom loved it. The food and service was beyond great.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelivers as ExpectedI had made sure to note that it was my wife's birthday because nice restaurants like this one usually print out custom menus that say "Happy Birthday" on them. They did not disappoint. They also included a birthday card signed by all the wait staff and comped our dessert, Baked Alaska, which neither of us have ever had before. It was awesome - both presentation (on fire) and taste.
My wife had the blackened (spicy) Long Cod and I had the Salmon on special. Both were great. We started with the clam chowder which was also excellent. While the place is a bit noisier and not necessarily the most romantic place in Indy, the food is excellent and the staff helpful and friendly. Not an every day dinner, but great for special occasions.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and waitstaff!Had a great experience on a busy Friday night! Had some amazing oysters - the waiter was very helpful in helping multiple people in the party pick those suited to their taste. Everything else was delicious and incredibly fresh - it was a great start to a very fun evening for myself and my party. Could do a private intimate dinner for two here or have an amazing dinner out with friends. Great place - plan on returning many times...5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAnniversary DinnerI took my wife to Oceanaire to celebrate our wedding anniversary. When I made a reservation via open table, I noted the occasion in the remarks section. When we arrived at the restaurant, a personalized card was sitting on the table. The service was great and the food was delicious. Oceanaire provided a wonderful dessert including ice cream, layer cake, and whipped-cream (all lit on fire) on the house. It was a wonderful experience. The cost at this restaurant causes me to reserve it for special occasions only, but I would recommend to others.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat advance service!When I made the reservation ahead of time I mentioned we would be celebrating my wife's birthday - not only did they hold our reservation (we were late), but they held the best booth in the house on a packed night, had a birthday card on the table, set up a a second birthday card and chilled bottle of champagne (arranged by friends in NYC over the phone), and printed a personalized bday message on our menus - all in addition to a complimentary dessert - they went out of their way for our special occasion and it was noticed.
Still a great oyster selection - as good and breath as I've had anywhere, including both coasts...4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for our 11 year weddingWe went for our 11 year wedding anniversary and was treated like royalty.

It is so fresh and crisp with shrimp and crab mean on top of mixed greens, with olives capers, and tomatoes.
