    After making the reservation and calling the resturant they never informed me of a wedding rehearsal dinner they where holding and the outside was not available and they only have about 3 tables inside the resturant. Also had a plastic piece of something in my salad and manager realy did not care, however she did remove the price of the salad of my bill.

    Great location.. right on the beach, you can feel the ocean breeze. Our server was great. We were celebrating our anniversary, and he was very accommodating. (I had called the hostess in advance to send over a special dessert, but she didn't relay it to the waiter. He fixed it though.) However, I found the food to be very expensive, and the bill can add up quickly. Also, it was a bit loud from the bass next door at JB's.

    The ambiance is one of a kind over looking the ocean. I defiantly recommend this location due to its service, great food and location. I ordered the grouper with crab meat which was outstanding. Their seafood food is amazing. I typically order what is on special as for it is always a good option and really fresh. I enjoy coming to this restaurant on a date night or with family and friends. I have also been here for business meeting where the atmosphere lends itself to a great experience.

    Always enjoy coming here. We shared the steak and a poached pear salad and it was enough food for the two of us. The steak was especially good. We substituted the sweet potato mashed for the other potato dish and had asparagus instead of the veggie medley, (which is my least favorite tasteless vegetable.) Our waiter, McGee was excellent and very charming. The only negative was the annoying music from next door. A little romantic music playing softly would be a plus here.

    Literally the best ocean view on the Atlantic!!!! Try 5 feet from the beach! Great environment and fabulous seafood, chicken and steaks, with first class service! Guests will be amazed and overwhelmed by the breath taking views...it simply delights! Everyone walks away with wonderful and an unforgettable experience and special memories! Not to mention that Deerfield Beach is one of the most beautiful and scenic beaches on the Atlantic Coast and you are right there! 5 Star food, service, ambience and ocean views! AAA+.

    The location is excellent, right on the beach. Outdoor dining here is great. Unfortunately the person i was with didnt want to eat outside as it was a hot day. Insider, there is absolutely NO VIEW! So the dining experience is very different outside vs. inside. The food is good and the service was excellent. The price is about what you would expect to pay for an upscale brunch. I will definitely go back only if I can eat outside......

    Great mohitos at the bar while we waited for our table. Parking was difficult but this was attributed to a holiday weekend. Valet was not available by 6:30 p.m. Bartenders were great! Sat outside, close to walk way with perfect view of the surf. Great breeze! Food did not disappoint - sushi was great and the Pastachio Mahi was fabulous! Will definitely dine again! Service was good too, which was impressive since the restaurant was at capacity on a holiday weekend!

    Food was great but how many times do you have to tell your waiter that you are not ready to order while we are still having cocktails and apps. frank made our first time at Oceans very uncomfortable. After he asked is for the 5th time I finally told him to stop. When we did order the Grouper special was amazing.

    Dined on 8/23/2014
    To start with the positive, our waitress was very helpful and our entrees were delicious, especially the corn& shrimp crusted snapper.We were seated outside and had a great water view. Issues: Two of the three of us were seated immediately, but the third person in our party did not show up for 20 minutes.....a problem with limited valet parking assistance. After dinner, it took another 20 minutes for him to retrieve our car. Parking is definitely a problem on a busy night. . Also we were seated outside near the bar and at times, had trouble hearing each other. We have been here for Brunch and it is, of course, much quieter. We will return, but will choose our day and time with care.

We ordered a variety of different foods and everything was exceptional. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who wants a fun atmosphere, great service, and outstanding food. We will be back again next year!

    Dined on 8/2/2014
    While the setting at Oceans 234 is idyllic, the seafood dishes and service are not. The main entrées, including specials, sound delectable but portions are inconsistent, sauces are heavy and/or over-sweet, and toppings like crabmeat, as described, are lightly sprinkled at best. We let the restaurant know, via email, that both couples were celebrating wedding anniversaries (38 and 16 years) that evening yet there was no recognition of that fact by the hostesses or server which was also disappointing. Highly doubtful that we would return.

    The main reason we went there was to celebrate our wedding anniversary. They sent us a voucher good for $34, the price of a bottle of wine. We had sauteed calamari, which was not on the menu and it was excellent. We also had Pistachio Mahi-Mahi and The Grouper special which both exceeded our expectations and were prepared excellent. The waiter was excellent and attentive.

    This isn't the Oceans 234 I remember. I have been several times in the past two years and would have recommend it for a special gathering, annivesary,celebration etc. It is a lively place but this time it was way too loud, smokey and super casual. The food was also a little dissapointing, good but just not as top notch as I remember. You can't beat the view even onovercast, or windy evenings. Maybe this was just a fluke but the meal is getting a little pricey to take that kind of chance.

    Went here with my wife for dinner. This place has nice outdoor seating with a nice view of the ocean. Our server was not very good at all the food was mediocre at best. The drinks were watered down and tasted poor. The website said valet parking is 3 dollars when you get there you find out it is 5 dollars. The Valet people were not very friendly at all. I definitely wouldn't recommend this place just based on the service alone.

    Since the opening of this restaurant about a decade ago, I've brought family and friends and have yet to be disappointed by any aspect of this restaurant. Outdoor dining and people watching on the beach is a plus. And now that I live directly across the street, I find myself fortunate enough to dine there more often!
