    The lunch special is probably the best value at Oceanaire, where, at $22.00 you get a nice kale Caesar or n.e. Clam chowder, a fish with veg/starch and a dessert. Fish portion was on the small side, but sufficient. Quality excellent. Place was very empty at 1230 pm on a Friday. Traffic and construction issues in Brickell could be part of that. Service good and professional, but we were the only guys in the place. Dinner menu is overpriced, imho.bartenders are personable and professional.

    Our waiter did not know the difference between the fish on our menu -- "Um, they are all white fish, so they are pretty much the same." He had no knowledge of any of the red wines on our list -- "Um, I don't drink Merlot, so I don't know." The food was *extremely* salty -- the salad, the scallops, everything.

    I chose this place to have dinner for my birthday with a few friends. Our waiter took our orders, left and then 30 minutes later came back to tell us they were out of all the ingredients to prepare 3 of our meals. We ordered something else. About 20 minutes later he comes back to tell us they're out of Salmon, which was what the fourth member of our party ordered. Beautiful restaurant, but I was hoping for a better experience.

    An excellent, beautiful restaurant. Food was excellent, fresh and tasty. Service was slow and inattentive. I even could not find the waiter to correct an error on the bill and had to chase down the restaurant manager, who did willingly correct it. Otherwise, a pleasant and enjoyable evening.

    We went off the miami spice menu and had the crab cakes which we well worth the ml money. I never knew that that was how crab was to taste. It was AMAZING and Hugo our waiter was great. Even waiters that were not in our section constantly cared for us. The service was great and speedy. It is pricey without the miami spice deal but it was sooooo worth it because we got what we paid for! Enjoy.

    Some of the people in our group used Miami Spice and ordered Chirasco Steak. The waiter served short ribs and said we are out of Chirasco steak. They weren't advised that the restaurant ran out of the thing they ordered they just unilaterally substituted without asking anyone what they wanted in lieu of their order.

    We enjoyed the food and wine at Oceanaire. They had a miami spice menu, but clearly the choices had lower priced ingredients that were meant to go with the lower cost menu. In some places, the spice menu is a great deal whereas in others such as here, you end up getting what you pay for. We sat outside on the patio as one of us had a dog, and there was perhaps one or two other tables of people also outside. So perhaps 10% or less of the restaurant was sitting outside. Usually not a good indicator for stellar service, and this instance proved to be the case. Our server was pleasant but very harried, with very long waits (20+ min) between interactions. Our dinner took over 2 hours to complete! Skip the outdoor patio in summer for sure.

    The food was mediocre. As well as the service, the manager was not helpful at all, in fact, he was quite annoyed with us, when we asked him why they were out of mussels and lobster, he said they serve fresh fish, so they can't always have all items on the menu available, he said he would comp the dessert, but we had Miami spice, so that didnt happen. Additionally, when we ordered dessert they were also out of brownies....really?? We asked for cheese cake...out of cheesecake also....someone needs to train management in ensuring they have enough food to feed thier customers.

    This was my birthday dinner. There were five of us. I was the fish person-excellent Bronzino; two were stuffed shrimp eaters - also excellent; and, two were steak folks -ribeye and filet. All well prepared as were the shrimp cocktails and salad appetizers. The big surprise was the birthday baked Alaska. Nicely presented and well received. service was friendly and knowledgeable. The wine and cocktails were also good. All around a nice experience.

    We came die to the Alaska weekend they advertised. Unfortunately, we did not like 2 of the 4 dishes. We asked if the chef was willing to make a dish of the scallops. We never had sushi scallops, words cannot describe how delicious this dish is.

    Oceanaire was recommended and it was a disappointment. I had the Mahi and it was very tough and chewy. However, the flavor was very good. I thought it was possibly frozen but was told not and that Mahi was sometimes chewy. Really? I've never had chewy Mahi. The service was extremely slow but we were not in a rush so that wasn't a big deal. The server came back with our coffees after 15 minutes of ordering and was then told the dessert we ordered was all out (this was on the house due to the Mahi so we ordered something else). Perhaps it was an off night.
