A real gem in Atlantic Beach

Everything was outstanding except the noise. I know establishments like the "buzz" of everyone. However, this was too much and it was difficult to talk. They need some sound absorbing items in the dinning room.

Ocean 60-Exceeded expectations.
The server greeted us very shortly after seated and provided helpful recommendations for drinks and appetizers. Our dinner experience was great and the food was amazing! Entree's looked delicious, great presentation and color, diverse flavors and the grouper was cooked to perfection.Our server was personable, attentive and provided great recommendations. If you're into martini's, they offer a huge variety of options and was very popular amongst the crowd that evening. Entree's ranged in price from $12 to $30 and our dinner for two included two martini's, two draft beers, appetizer and two higher priced entree's and the final bill totaled just over $100. Very good price for all included. Overall, Ocean60 is a solid 8 out of 10.

One of the best
Ocean 60, a very well run restaurant, is as good as it gets in this area, which is very good indeed. The food is varied, imaginative and well prepared. The service is very attentive, knowledgeable but not the "hovering" type. It is located a block from the ocean in a casual beach community which means the attire may be a bit too casual for some people, but it is tastefully managed. On the weekends it can get very, very loud and parking can be an absolute nightmare. Go during the week and go early, because it can be amongst the very best places you may have eaten. We love it, but we also know how to pick the times that work for us. In all fairness, we are older than much of the world so I am sure most people would not be so fussy.

Good food, attentive service, noisy
From the beginning we noticed that the noise level compared to an elementary grade school cafeteria. Talking to each other was not within the realm of the possible. The menu choices were ample and varied, I choose the local shrimp in a scampi, my wife choose a curry chicken dish that was not exactly prepared as described by good. The house salad was excellent as was the warm bread basket. We selected a bottle of white wine that was the right temperature and very tasty, with citrus overtones. We would return but hopefully in the off-season when perhaps the conversation level was more tolerable.

Lovely meal, great service, fun time...we will be back for another date night!

I wrote a message that it
I wrote a message that it was a birthday and they made it very special with a Happy Birthday at the top of the menu, complimentary champagne and complimentary dessert and also a great table in the bar.

Definitely will return again!
Places like Ocean60 are why I love to use Open Table! Never would have found this gem without the app. Great food, great bar, fabulous martinis, good wine list. Nice little band playing quietly.
We will definitely return again and again. Place is very loud when full but who wants a dead no atmosphere place?

Our waiter Tony was very friendly and attentive during our meal. My husband had a hard time finding parking and Tony recommended parking places nearby then went outside with me to help find my husband which most waiters would not have done. I had also mentioned in the reservation notes that it was our anniversary and we were congratulated with two glasses of complimentary champagne!
Each item we ordered had a lot of different ingredients that complimented each other very well. Our meals were delicious!
We have already recommended ocean 60 to friends!

If You Needed a Reason to Visit...
Atlantic Beach... This is it! Compared to the restaurants in Avondale, San Marco, Riverside, Beaches, and in between, Ocean 60's creative menu and amazing flavors trumps all. We had several small plates, salad, and an entrée; each one was not only delicious, but unique in ingredients and presentation - not the same old, same old "Farm to Table" something over "Anson Mills Grits" cuisine. Tuna Avocado Salad and Brussels Sprouts with Pork were simply wonderful. Did I mention the prices were extraordinarily low and that my martini was half-price for Happy Hour? So glad we visited! Hooray, Ocean 60!!

Excellent restaurant, great service
The perfect place to celebrate our anniversary. Attention we got from the moment we walked in was super. Ocean 60 made the night special.
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food at a fair price.
Took my girlfriend there for a good meal. We split an appetizer, each had our own specialty salads, split and entree and desert for ~$75. The quality of every course was top notch. The chef really has an ability to put several distinctly flavorful things on the plate to pull of a single cohesive dish. The not overly sweet blueberry clafoutis was the perfect homemade finish.

My husband and I really enjoyed our dining experience at Ocean 60. The food, service and the martini's was excellent.

Can't say enough about this place!! Always a wonderful dining experience at Ocean 60!! Cheers!!!!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
definitely will return
A day later we were still talking about the dinner. Seriously good food at good prices. Shrimp scampi was great and Tuscan pork chops very good (2 large chops plus sides for $21--took half home). It's on the noisy side but that's because it's busy!

It was our friend's 30th wedding
It was our friend's 30th wedding anniversary , their 1st time at the resturaunt from out of state & the staff could not have been more attentive with special surprises of champagne and a personalized special menu. It really made the evening special.

Ocean 60 - A favorite!
Ocean 60 is our most favorite Jacksonville restaurant. We like the variety and creativity of menu offerings, as well as the quality of the ingredients. The service is excellent and the ambiance is perfect for an upscale beach restaurant. If you're sensitive to noise, it's best to book reservations for early in the evening before the restaurant and bar are full, or before the music begins. In all the years we have been going, Ocean 60 has never disappointed.

It was our anniversary and
It was our anniversary and we chose to try Ocean 60. We're so glad we did! We went in before our reservation for cocktails in the martini bar. Drinks were a little pricey, but soooo good! We were happy to be able to snag an outdoor table (a little more quiet and intimate) and wanted to stay out there to dine. Our server, Alex, was great! So accommodating and attentive. We changed tables to our own quiet little corner outside, enjoyed a wonderful meal (without being rushed.....love that) and were treated to a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate our special day. Loved it! Will definitely be back......ask for Alex!

When I made my reservation,
When I made my reservation, I was not aware that the main dining room was reserved for a large private party. We were seated in the bar dining room. While it wasn't our first choice, the food was excellent as always and a happy hour until 7:30 PM on Saturday was a nice plus. All four of us loved the Brussels Sprouts appetizer and our entrees (veggie crepes, risotto, Tuscan pork).
9/20/2013 5:00:00 PM
My new favorite spot!
This was a wonderful, little place that we went for our mom's birthday dinner. The service was phenomenal! I couldn't be happier with the food, service, and decor. This would be perfect for a night out, special occasion, or any occasion!
9/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious food, great value
We had a wonderful meal Saturday night. The room closest to the corner is extremely noisy. If you need a quieter space ask to sit in the bigger room that has acoustical tile ceilings. This is now our favorite restaurant in Atlantic Beach.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
I just had my second experience at Ocean 60 this past Wednesday to celebrate my son's 30th Birthday. We had a wonderful experience and the staff really went out of their way to make us feel special. The food was excellent and I highly recommend this restaurant for any occasion. Even the patrons were excellent, kind and genuinely happy to be there. Big thumbs up!!!!
10/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fun and Good Food!
Went to Ocean 60 because it was recommended from One Ocean Resort. Great choice. The food was very good. Service was great too.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food and service were very good. The noise level was more than energetic. With a vocalist and guitarist in the bar area it was difficult to hear across the table. During the dinner hour just a little lower on the sound level would be appreciated.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
My wife and I went for date night this past week and again ordered from the specials menu. Every time we go I plan to try something from the regular menu, and it has yet to happen. That said, I never have any regrets. I had sword fish and my wife the corvina. Both were just delicious. Eric was our waiter and he was just great.
The one complaint I have is with the noise level. We always expect a loud dining room, but this Saturday there were two large groups.
It was a struggle for my wife and I to hear each other over the din.
That noise wasn't enough to keep us away, however, and I look forward to our next visit.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Took my wife there for our anniversary, she loves it. The service was great, the food was even better
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a Treat
My husband and I always enjoy our nights out at Ocean 60. The food, ambiance and neighborhood feel makes it special.
10/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always a pleasure to eat at
Always a pleasure to eat at Ocen's 60. Food was GREAT service was fantastic. I take my wife here for very special dates.
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was great!
We had reservations for four, so getting seated took less than 30 seconds. The server was attentive and checked on us often. The main course took longer than expected, but the table conversation made the time pass by quickly. As the night progressed, the noise level increased, but not to the point where it became annoying. Everyone in the restaurant appeared to be having a wonderful time.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Another Great Meal!
Once again we had a superb dining experience at Ocean 60 and the food was great too!! This remains one of our favorite restaurants I just wish I could eat everything on the menu!
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food , bad service
Hostess was very nice and food was superb. Waiter ruined the experience..
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food and Service Outstanding
Ocean 60 is always a favorite of ours. Everything was delicious....make sure you make reservations, even during the week. The place is packed...
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was above and beyond what we expected. Lots of great specialty drinks and dishes. Our 3rd time dining here and our friends 1st we all will be back again.

One of my local favorites.
One of my local favorites. My wife and I have been dinning at ocean 60 since it first opened. The experience never fails too please. The menu is always fresh with old favorites and new and exciting dishes, the service excellent and the atmosphere always inviting.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I dined there on our 17th wedding anniversary. When making the reservation, I put a note that it was our anniversary. When we were seated, our server greeted us with a glass of champagne to start our evening off with a toast. From the escargot appetizer, the surf and turf entree to the pineapple upside-down martini........AWESOME!!!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We would highly recommend Ocean restaurant. What a wonderful surprise for us as visitors from Lake Mary, FL (Orlando). The Spandini appretizer was at the top of our taste list. Fresh bread was great for dipping. Dishes were very creative. Try this restaurant!
11/4/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a fabulous experience
Ocean 60 is at the top of my list for places to go for a nice night out. Their chef is amazing, the atmosphere is elegant but not pretentious and it's a great return on the investment price wise.
On the fixed menu, the salmon gratin is outstanding.
They saw my note on opentable about a birthday and brought us a special dessert and a homemade "candle" that was beautiful.
Quite a special night!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
A good review...with a reservation
We sat at the bar for a glass of wine while awaiting the table. It was here that our server showed us the kind of great hospitality we would enjoy all evening. At the table we enjoyed a couple of appetizers which were really good. The bruchetta was excellent. For main entrees, the triggerfish was excellent, but the shrimp scampi, which was touted as a must have, just did not impress. We would absolutely return for another opportunity, since our overall impression was a good one.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
lovely date night
We went to ocean 60 on a Tuesday night. My boyfriend of more than a year had never been. As a trained chef finding places where he enjoys the good and we both enjoy the atmosphere is always tough.
We had one of our great nights out ever. His trigger fish was perfect, down to the last bite. My Rosemary ribeye was amazing.
We have decided that Ocean 60 is a once a month night out for us.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Worth a visit
Service very good. Ambience good. Menu has many good options. Early in evening (7:00PM) it was comfortable, soon after the bar side (where we were seated) was too loud to converse.

I'M IN LOVE WITH OCEAN 60
Ocean 60 offers a delightful variety of seafoods, desserts, and an excellent wine selection. The locationn is in a beautiful neighborhood with the beach, restaurants and shops close by..
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
I took my mom to Ocean 60 for her 84th birthday. Beautiful restaurant across the street from the ocean. Our server, Reed was so attentive and delivered the best service I have experienced in a very long time. I ordered the crab stuffed flounder and mom ordered the new york strip with blue cheese. Delicious! We had so much fun and Reed brought out a decadent slice of chocolate mousse for mom and I to share. I cannot wait to get back there soon. Thank you for a very special evening with my mother.
