Oysters are great as well.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceOceanaire was recommended by locals in the area and it was wonderful. The scallops were amazing and the cheesecake was the best I have ever had from a restaurant.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat seafood dinner!My wife and I both had a great evening dining experience. The seafood sampler was wonderful and the atmosphere and service were excellent.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service!It was my brother's 20th birthday, and the waiter made him (and my whole family) feel like we were stars. I sent instructions via OpenTable, and every one was followed with even more effort put in than I'd imagined. My brother also raved about the crab legs being the best he's ever had. I ordered mussels, which honestly were not great, but my Woodford Manhattan made up for it -- easily the best I've ever had! Overall, the presentation and service -- not to mention the smile on my brother's face -- made the night a top experience. Would definitely recommend!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA lot of sea food and lots of funI have been visitingthe Oceanaire since they opened the door. At that time, i worked in this neighborhood, it was much more frequent but I want to come back this place as many as I can. The signature Chilean Seabass is still delicious and every single one of our table enjoyed all foods including oysters appetizer through desert. It has been almost one year since I visited last time, nothings changed great seafood and great service.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AM.Always a delight to eat the.Always a delight to eat the food at Oceanaire. Just a really great formula.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMA new "Special Occasion" favoriteWe had a fantastic meal at Oceanaire Seafood Room. The menu and wine selections were all wonderful and the service was impeccable. I wish that the ambiance had been a bit more quiet and romantic (there was a large table of women near us who were quite loud). Overall, a perfect place for that special occasion.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMScallops and RisottoFor any foodie, this dish was to die for. The risotto is the best I have tasted and was wonderful!5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional as alwaysThis restaurant has become something of a tradition for our group from TN when we're in DC on business.

From the time we sat down we received immediate and continuous customer service. The food came out quickly and was hot and fresh. My husband was so impressed, he couldn't stop talking out the restaurant to our friends and family! We will definitely be back with a group of people soon.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the better seafoodOne of the better seafood places in the country. My only concern is the lack of spicy dishes. Given that it is a seafood restaurant the ribeye and pork chop are remarkably goods4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful dinner withHad a wonderful dinner with my friends. We certainly would return.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFABULOUS AS ALWAYSWHAT CAN I SAY...NEVER A BAD MOMENT AT OCEANAIRE. THE FOOD IS ALWAYS WONDERFUL AND THE WAIT STAFF IS GREAT.
BRAVO!!!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was good - scallopsThe food was good - scallops were delicious. Very noisy on a Wednesday night. This is not a place to discuss business or have a quiet meal. It is good for abundance, high energy and fresh seafood.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had drinks at a livelyWe had drinks at a lively bar prior to our reservation. Then we were seated at our precise reservation time. The waiter was curteous, knowledgeable and very pleasant. Food was exactly what the menu offered. My Chilean sea bass was perfect. The shrimp scampi and little over dressed and the sides of asparagus and sweet potato were a great complement the original bottle of wine we ordered from a vast list was not available. Our waiter recommended another bottle that was superb. We had a lovely evening and I would highly recommend a visit. Downside. The maitre d was a bit snippy. Did not convey the relaxed and easy dinig experience we had.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMGo...ENJOYI've been to both the Baltimore and DC locations, and both are excellent! You get a professional staff who are attentive, but not bothersome. The food is excellent. The seared Ahi tuna is an excellent choice for dinner, but watch the wasabi, it's hotter than those in your typical sushi joint. Had the mozzarella tomato salad, the mozzarella has to be made there, it was soft and actually tasted like cheese. So what do I have to say? Go...Enjoy!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMNot for Frozen Seafood Lovers...As always, I'm impressed with Oceanaire!! Simply put... You can never go wrong when choosing this restuarant as your dining destination.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery extensive menu and knowledgeabVery extensive menu and knowledgeable staff. The dessert was amazing!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe celebrated the 60th birthdayWe celebrated the 60th birthday of a friend on Friday evening. From the time we entered to the time we left we had wonderful service. The host/hostess was very gracious with a pre-printed menu as a "gift" for our friend. There was also a complimentary baked Alaska for dessert which was plenty for four. Each entrée (one simply grilled salmon, one mixed grilled seafood, one salmon with spinach, one halibut special) was well prepared and presented well. The wine and drinks were fair pours and promptly served. The bread basket was refilled without asking and the rolls were pleasantly warm and crusty. Our waiter could not have been more kind - he was always there for us but never intrusive. A lovely dining experience.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWill go againVery nice setting to celebrate my husband's 45th birthday. Our server, Eric, was exceptional and was spot on in terms of his service to us and attentiveness. We will go back.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was as expected,The food was as expected, very good. Actually this visit I think I would say outstanding, except desert. We shared a creme brule, which three of us only took one bite. It simply was not good. The disapointing thing to me was the waiter did not comment or ask when there were only three bites taken from the desert. Its all in the details.... the tuna poke, and calamari were prepared to perfection. This location has the best crab cakes in the chain. It must be the crab supplier or location, i am certain the recipe is the same. The black and blue sea bass, which did not sound good to me at all, was also outstanding. Aside from the one issue i mentioned, bravo!4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVery good food, the StaffVery good food, the Staff was outstanding. The waiter/kitchen were about to prepare the fresh Fish just the way my daughter wanted it. Our table was ready when we arrived. The deserts are huge...the drinks are on the small side.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were a bit concerned whenWe were a bit concerned when seated by the area where the waiters enter their orders but the service and food was so good we really didn't even notice the activity at that station. We will definitely return.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic Steakhouse for Fish loversAs always, Oceanaire didn't disappoint. If you're at a point in life where you prefer fish to red meat, but fondly remember the classic steakhouse days of your youth....then this is the place. It's really a Steakhouse for fish and it's fabulous in every way, classic in every way. Go enjoy!4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMProbably the best seafoodProbably the best seafood I've ever had, service was outstanding and personal without being over the top. We had a group of 7 of us and it was a very enjoyable evening.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone at the table enjoyedEveryone at the table enjoyed their food although my husband ordered the wrong thing, and was disappointed, but all in all, the food was very good. Our waitress was on point. Very friendly staff We frequent the place and have always been pleased and will keep going back.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe open yet intimate settingThe open yet intimate setting was a favorite feature.

It was a wonderful dinner3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWhen I get a chance to comeWhen I get a chance to come to the District I always come here for a special dinner. This time I came with three young ladies (my daughter and two of her friends) who have never been to Oceanaire. They, and I, were impressed with the restaurant. The food was incredible again and the service was excellent. I have never been disappointed with a night out here. Recommend to everyone.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMSam, my waiter was fantastic!Sam, my waiter was fantastic!

Oysters on the half shell--WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent place...serversExcellent place...servers a bit old fashioned and kind of arrogant..they are not customers oriented in their attitudes.. but efficient anyway.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMSea BassThe most Fresh fish I've ever had! Sea Bass topped with a la blue crab oscar melts in your mouth! Outstanding service! Would go back as long as I could afford it. Pricey, but worth it...3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGood, Not GreatYou'd never know the Oceanaire was part of a chain. The food is consistently excellent, the service also spot on and the downtown location is easy to deal with. The only problem with it is the crowd that's always there, creating a noisy background that distracts. Given the very high prices at Oceanaire, I'd recommend BlackSalt as a much more authentic seafood restaurant (they have a fish market in the front of the restaurant) with better, more creative food.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & ServiceProbably the best service and food that we've had recently...could not suggest.anything to improve.2/2/2013 12:00:00 AMEat at the bar for lunch 2-3Eat at the bar for lunch 2-3 days a week. Go for the seafood salad and truffle fries. You can't go wrong.1/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGive your review a title (optional)As usual, hash browns were great. The little appetizer tray is always a treat. The bread was not as fresh as always. Outstanding wine recommendation by the server - great NZ wine by the glass at $11 per glass was equivalent of wines twice that price.12/18/2012 12:00:00 AM
