Diner Reviews
  • "This is our sixth visit to this incredible restaurant and every time we have a wonderful experience! From the moment you arrive and are greeted by the friendly smile of the hostess, through the evening being taken care of by the helpful waiter/waitress, to the courteous valet guys - you feel special. The ambiance created by the sound of the breaking waves on the beach and the spectacular view makes this a must for anyone desiring a beautiful dining experience. The food is what is the exclamation mark of your experience there! Each item we have ever had has been delicious - my wife's favorite is the salmon and mine is the mahi."

  • "First time to Deerfield BeAch.cute town.restaurant directly on beach.great views.unlike a lot of places with views where all you've got is the view, here you actually got really good food....we had three different sushi rolls all were tasty...the crab was real not Kani so that's good n rice was not mushy so that's huge!.We had the heaping bowl of clams...a little salty but great flavor and not overcooked clams...we really enjoyed all apps. I had the dolphin sandwich jerk style.....fresh fish and just the right amount of spice...My 13 year old son ate the artichoke-spinach dip for dinner(we are on vacation after all) and it was good...filled with artichokes ...canned of course but apparently even the CIA approves that .I just don't love it."

  • "Met a friend there for my birthday. I made reservations online only 1 hour before arrival. The only 2 top table available at that time was near the bathrooms. At first I was disheartened but it turned out to be fine. We still had a view of the ocean which is always a delight. Our waitress was wonderful! She even put a candle on my ice cream sundae and sang happy birthday to me! The restaurant had a fun, happy atmosphere! As i live in the area (Pompano Beach) I DEFINATELY will be going back....and telling friends to go!"

  • "We went there on a very busy Saturday night. Our table was ready when they said it would be. They put us in a quiet corner. Service and food were great. Well done Kim! Their valet parking guys are magicians. We had a great time and I will get a second date :)"

  • "Enjoyed a lunch last December but a Dinner No Way Again! I was seated next to a post, food is always good but.... Our table of four in order to talk had to get up from the table and walk over to the side walk to talk with out repeating ourselves and screaming, everyone seamed to have to do that and the music was so loud. The waitress was so bad in ever checking on us that we would grab other waitresses to get refills of water or anything else we needed, she asked for our order and then didn't write it down until she pushed other foods, aggressive and aggravating. Never again for dinner!"

  • "It was not until we asked a waiter to please get a waiter for us that we were even recognized once seated. The service was poor and very slow. This is exasperating as a customer. I am a local resident and had guests in from out of town. Overall a Very disappointing dining experience."

  • "The night was very windy with occasional rain. Our table was outside, first row off dunes' sidewalk. We were a party of 8. We were wind blown and wet from rain. Ocean 234 was totally unprepared for this. After numerous requests to lower plastic drop down shields, staff informed us part of the automatic system was not working. Eventully, one young waiter finally found a hand crank and with a lot of effort manged to lower the shields. By then our food was cold, we were wet and the night was ruined. "

  • "I made a reservation for my parents anniversary dinner and requested a table outside with a view. Our server was attentive, the view was amazing, and the food was perfection. The music was a tad loud for my parents, but i think that was from next door. The people watching is always good there. We had a blast... Could not have asked for a better experience!"

  • "Friday afternoon girls-day-out brunch - fresh seafood (2 orders of oysters, shrimp cocktail, sushi, and salmon... server, Mike was amazingly attentive - reservations were for outside, arrived early, seated immediately - what a view! Lovely brunch for 2 girls who needed a break from reality! Oysters where shucked properly - large and fresh - all the food and service impressed my friend, who'd never been to Oceans 234 before - quality food and service!"

  • "I wsould go here every night if I could!! The Food, Service and Staff are the best and work very hard to give you the best experience ever. The Food and food choices would please anyone with any kind of taste. Our waiter was the best of the staff, my opinion,and his recommendations were spot on."

  • "I wanted so much to ignore the negative reviews but after taking my wife out for a birthday dinner I was disappointed relative to the price. I spent $100 (+15 tip) for 1 salad, 2 entrees, and 3 drinks but the food was mediocre, the beer options were very limited, and the tables were too close together that I kept accidentally bumping into the customer next to me. the lighting outside was a bit dark but I read that is b/c of regulations. if I had to do it again I would eat dinner elsewhere and then take her to oceans 234 for drinks and desert and then a walk on the pier of course. they did wish her happy birthday when we first got there so it felt like they were aiming to please. but you pay the premium for a view - not the food."

  • "Fresh seafood excellently prepared, beautiful view and really wonderful service. I have bronzini here for the second time in my life. The first time was in Venice, Italy, and the bronzini dish at Oceans 234 was better! I highly recommend Oceans 234."

  • "We celebrated a special occasion and were so pleased with our choice. It took a long time to get our order but we were enjoying one another's company, so it was not a problem. I felt that the drinks were overpriced ($12.00 for a bloody Mary) but found the encores and desserts were priced fairly. Several of us had cobb or chef salads, one had the crab cakes.and the last of us had the pear salad. All were very fresh and tasty. Our waiter was very pleasant and efficient.. The location along the ocean and beach was delightful."

  • "Food was good, but was kind of pricey. Seafood was really good. Steak was ok. Sushi was excellent. It was hard to talkative the table because they were playing louder music plus the restaurant next door had live music. The 2 musics were clashing. Outside view if the ocean was beautiful. Clayton, our server, was great."

  • "We came down to visit the restaurant from Jacksonville because we are having our rehearsal dinner for our wedding here late in the year. The drinks came out promptly & my Hendricks cucumber martini was perfect. Our apps ( spicy tuna roll & calamari ) were good. Our main entrees were great as well. We had the crab stuffed shrimp & subbed the risotto for twice baked. The twice baked wasn't really twice baked.. More like a baked potato with melted cheese on top. The filet mignon was cooked perfectly to temperature except the asparagus were way too crunchy. My mahi dish was perfect. Overall it was a great experience. Our server, Ana, I believe was very knowledgable, sweet, made great suggestions, & invited us back to be repeat customers!"

  • "I recently had the opportunity to lunch at Oceans 234. It was a delightful surprise. Not only does it have the wonderful seaside view of the Atlantic Ocean and the Deerfield Beach pier but it has a mouth watering menu. Our service was outstanding. Not being a big seafood person, I opted for the fish and chips. The cod was delicately breaded and fried to a tasty crispness. The sides were outstanding crispy fries and fresh cole slaw. My companion enjoyed the mahi mahi and deemed it a winner. We relaxed with our drinks, catching up on old times and thoroughly enjoyed our time at Oceans 234. This restaurant deserves a return visit and if you have never been there, by all means head to Deerfield Beach for great food and wonderful ambiance!"

  • "I always enjoy brunch at Oceans234. My sister and her friend were happy to be out of the cold Boston weather and eating with a beautiful view of the ocean. My sandwich and their omelets were delicious and we also enjoyed our Bellinis. I recommend Oceans for the food and the view. It's always a pleasure to dine here."

  • "Do not go to this restaurant on a Sunday...it's like a frat party, no sophistication, noise level unbearable. Food was ok, nothing special and the service was fine. We gad to move to an indoor table as we were unable to converse at the table on the outside deck area, which is one of the main reasons to go to this restaurant."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "The food was fresh and so delicious, the wine list was not overbearing and the white zin I had was crisp and perfectly complimented the mahi dish I had. I sat outside and the weather was beautiful, there were families and couples and the ambience was very relaxed, not too loud and a band was playing at the restaurant next door which was nice. Overall I would definitely recommend to a friend or a group that wanted a relaxing evening with great food and drinks."

  • "gone there for eight years. Food more money and less of it not as good for the prices. Waitress named the specials but didn't offer price as most restaurants I.e.Have such and such for $ tonight. Shrimp spec ended up priced at $44.. 4 shrimp with some breading,few flakes of crab, large bed of mushy sticky risotto ..um $10 a shrimp. Branzini was small, skinny dry overcooked. Our reservation - 4 people, she said all we have is inside between two walls. Outside ocean tables are reserved with reservations. showed my phone reservation confirm. . told me I had to request outside . I asked her to show where option was on my phone reservation? 4 hostesses conferred in a huddle .finally took us to one of the tables that said reserved on them"

Plenty to choose from on the menu with a wide variety of prices. Excellent food (the calamari was amazing) and great service too. Wish we lived close by -- we would eat here often!"

  • "Made an Open Table reservation and told hostess we were a little early, while the place was not empty, they did have a few tables outside. Unfortunately the hostess asked if we minded sitting inside, know this place is know for outdoor dining on the beach. We were given a high top table across from the bathroom. We were pretty hungry and did not complain. But through the internal glass we could see many two's being seated for outdoor dining and four top tables. The waiter was very attentive, which helped mitigate the seating somewhat, but still. Slightly disappointed, enjoyed the sushi, wife enjoyed her salad, wish we could have had an outside table. Knowing we were booked through Open Table, hostess had to know we would leave a review."

  • "We walked to Oceans on a Saturday evening hoping to be seated, on arrival we noticed empty tables had RESERVED signs on them, walk in wait time-over 2 hours. Went home made online reservation for next evening-715. Arrived to a Very FULL restaurant. Told we were 10 minutes early our table would be ready shortly. NO RESERVED TABLE! Very different from the prior evening. Finally seated 8:10. Our expectation was to arrive and discover a RESERVED sign on a table for us as we observed the prior night. We can understand a 15 minute or so wait..but an hour is inappropriate."

  • "Came into town for business and we wanted food and drinks. We made a reservation online but were 30 minutes late due to multiple accidents on the way. Valets were very nice and professional. The host was understanding when we called to inform of the traffic and still say us with our reservation. The food was phenomenal! The snapper was the best dish I have ever tasted (friend ordered). The drinks were great, service impeccable, and general atmosphere made us feel welcome. I highly recommend anyone venture here you won't regret your choice."
