Food excellent, stuffy environment
Food and service were very good. Staff was excellent, but the restaurant's ambience was stuffy. Average age on a saturday night was over 50.

Found restaurant by chance and were very pleased. Printed our daughter's name on the menu as a surprise for her graduation. Food and drinks were tasty, server was polite and friendly; however, service tended to be too slow and made a few mistakes with the meal. Nevertheless, entire experience was favorable and definitely worth a visit.

I've already reviewed the restaurant, and it has lost neither it's charm nor the quality of service or food served. That's the reason for the return visit.

Quiet table for two
We absolutely loved the relaxed feel of this place. I wore a dress, and my friend wore nice jeans and we both felt comfortable. Anis, our waiter was polite, patient, and didn't rush us and timed each dish very well. I enjoyed a cooked to perfection Wild Alaska Halibut with a side of the creamiest mashed potatoes and mushrooms. My friend thoroughly enjoyed the Filet Mignon and a side of creamed spinach. We were able to enjoy each others company without having to compete with loud music or shouting patrons. The prices were reasonable, given the ambiance, the location, the service, and the freshness of everything. I frequent it as often as my budget allows. Try it! It will be your new "favorite."

Went on Father's Day with family of five. Started off with excellent oyster selections and wine. Salads big enough that we only needed two for five people. Food was very good and nicely prepared. Only gripe was small lobster tail for big price. Server, Wade was attentive and very pleasant, made the meal most enjoyable. Took home leftovers. Had the delicious flan for dessert.
Would go back for special occasion as it is pricey.

Ocenaire is Excellent!
We've dined here before as a family and our second time was just as great as the first! Great food, great decor and great service!

Pricey but good
Oceanaire always delivers a very good meal but at a considerable price point. This meal was no exception. The major problem was service was slow. Our server was very pleasant and knowledgeable, but it seemed sometimes that she disappeared for long periods so the flow of the meal was awkward particularly at the end of the dinner when we wanted to leave.
The seafood choices were excellent for the three of our party with seafood. The filet was also excellent for the others.
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
My food was delicious served hot & in a timely manner the waiter was patient & very professional my experience couldn't possibly been any better. I'm from DC so I'm going to make reservations at my local Oceanaire to compare the food and service from the two restaurant's I expect the same experience.

Service was excellent! Wine list adequate, ambience was just right for our anniversary celebration. The food was well prepared, presented and taste was out of this world! Wide selection of Oysters which were fresh and flavorful. Crab cakes are a must have!
Super dining experience. We are recommending to all close friends.

Always a great seafood restaurant
We enjoy eating here regularly. Although this time they were out of the wild atlantic salmon so thats was a dissapointment.
But they made up for it with a free dessert! Loved my Mexican Grouper with the Black and Blue, you have to try that topping.
Carmelized onions and Blue cheese blackened with an all spice on top. Just thinking about it makes me want to go back for dinner tonight.
7/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
Had a great experience, the food was amazing. The service was great and quick i actually felt appreciated and not like a customer. I highly recommend this Resturant.
7/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
simply splendid seafood
This was my first time at the oceannaire and it wont be my last. The cook is spectacular. The portions are more than enough for two. You get what you pay for. The service is great. I was with my two year old and everyone was so nice to her. They gave her a coloring pad and two of they workers came by and drew with her. It was her birthday and everyone went out their way to make a great. They have the best seafood I have ever tasted. My mother had the lobster and I the seafood mix. The appetizers are enough for three.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had a very good lunch at Oceanaire. Well worth going to.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
The restaurant was outstanding
The restaurant was outstanding from the host to the server. I over loved the happy birthday menu with my finance name on it.You guys rock!!! keep up the good work... The food was excellent it was warm not hot how I like it but it still was good... I loved everything about the restaurant... The only thing I didn't like was everyone talks about your clam chowder so I was dying to try it and you guys didn't have it. I was disappointed but the food made up for it .
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Since the moment I walk into the restaurant ..... there were all kinds of attentions and surprises. It's a place to have a nice dinner and have a conversation.......
Excellent place to celebrate a birthday and/or anniversary

My favorite waiter
Aaron is great he knows your drink makes suggestions for the meal has a personality that cannot be beat

Great Place for Seafood
The food was exquisite and the service was truly dedicated to seeing that we had a spectacular dining experience. The food selection was amazing and we enjoyed each course from beginning to end. If you are looking for superb seafood then this restaurant will not disappoint.

Had time to kill en route Miami to Buenos Aires so on a friend's recommendation visited Oceanaire. A warm welcome, great food and knowledgeable, experienced wait staff made it a great respite from the 100 degree heat outside. Very relaxed atmosphere.
We all chose different dishes and everyone was pleased with the excellent quality and choice.

food very good. was a little put out that they changed the Miami Spice menu.the manager very kindly allowed me to order what I had wanted . the meal was very good. i found the service to be not as good as past visits..
8/9/2013 5:00:00 PM
Loved the decor the server very attentive, food delicious---we had a great time. I felt the food took a little longer to come out but we were there to relax and enjoy the evening.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
We love the decor of this
We love the decor of this restaurant. It's very calming and beautiful. We have been here prior and enjoyed dining here. However, this time the food was good but not great. Our salmon and corvina were both a little on the dry side. Everything else was fine. Our waiter was not very accommodating but finally got my meal correct after taking it back to the kitchen. I had a simple request of no sauce on my fish and it was served with the sauce on the bottom and was told that's the way it's done. All in all I had a nice birthday dinner and enjoyed the baked Alaska they served me.

Great start before a Cruise
Great food with many alternatives that change in daly basis and excellent hot spot to have additional fun

We keep going back to Oceanaire.
We keep going back to Oceanaire. It's one of our favorite seafood restaurant. The food and service is always impeccable.
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Service was perfect but even though we got the Miami Spice menu I thought prices were high for size of portions.
The food was very good but there is another new seafood chain that the prices are a LOT less and the seafood is
We did order something different since we were limited on the menu. Thank goodness the dessert came with it other wise we would have left hungry.
David was very attentive and helpful.
On our budget we wont be returning unless someone else invites us.
We do like to drink and I thought the wine prices were very high.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very very good
My girlfriend, along with her family and I, dinned at the Oceanire during Miami Spice. As we normally like to so during this time, we checked out a restaurant that we've heard a lot about in hopes to return there again and check out the regular menu. I was thoroughly impressed with the food and the service. Although the Miami Spice menu was slightly different than what was online, we still enjoyed it, and I can't wait to try the rest of the menu. Would definitely recommend trying the Oceanire out!
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were a party of 3 and all
We were a party of 3 and all ate from the Miami Spice menu. The food and service was excellent. It was a week night so it was quiet.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, nice atmosphere
The atmosphere is great here. Ran into a couple of hiccups with the service, but they were able to resolve the issues. The waiter was nice. Overall enjoyed eating there.

Pass on oysters
Overall, I like this restaurant but find it to be very expensive which could be why I have never seen it full and why i checked it would be good for special occasions. If you like oysters, this is not the place. A dozen oysters were $39. That is just ridiculous.
On a positive note, this was the first time I had a waiter that didn't try to up sell me which was good since my bill for 3 people with one drink each was $250.
If, however, you are going for lunch and like salads, definitely try the Chopped Seafood Salad. It is a bargain at $12.95.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hadn't been there for a couple of years. Rcv'd. birthday reward through Landrys Club so I thought I'd give it another shot. Definitely overall improvement from several years back. Will be back!
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very quiet and dim lit for a nice evening. The meal was good a lil bland for my liking but nothing a little salt and pepper can't fix . The dessert was wonderful. Prices a little steep but for quality seafood was expected
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fantastic place to eat and
Fantastic place to eat and highly recommend the Jerked Grouper. Great Service!!!
As Arnold would say, "We will be back"

The special attention to our special occasion was extraordinary. The staff was very welcoming from hostess to maitre'd. The service was spectacular and the food was divine. Highly recommended.

I love it. Took my husband here for his birthday and the food was awesome! Great place!
9/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
This place is absolutely amazing! The food was delicious, the place was clean and had a very romantic set up. By far the service was superior to any resturaunt I've ever eaten at. Will definetly go back for a special occasion. It is pricey but it is worth every penny.

Memorable Dining Experience
I was visiting from out of town and was celebrating my birthday the evening of my dining experience at Oceanaire. I would like to say that my evening was remarkable and I felt special. I was greeted with an "Happy Birthday" from all the staff that knew and to top it off my custom made menu that stated Happy Birthday Jackie! The entire staff was friendly and professional especially my waitress, Michelle ( I think that was her name). My dessert on the house was to die for and I really appreciated the nice service. I will definitely visit again.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent Crab Cakes as Always!
I love crab cakes, and it's always very hard to find a meaty crab cake with not a lot of filler....and Oceanaire has the best crab cakes in town in my opinion and possibly the best ever! It's pricey, so not somewhere you are going to go every weekend, but for a special occasion or every few months, it's definitely worth it!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
A nice find
Decent, good fare. Not exceptional. Fair pricing, nice atmosphere, excellent, attentive service.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food, the service, the details - from the Happy Birthday headers and the amazing dessert!!
Definitely going back once in Miami! Highly recommended!
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Whenever we have a special occasion to be in downtown Miami around dinner time we make reservations for OceanAire. It pricey but worth the expense! They were out if the Creamed Corn as a side dish this time which was disappointing. If they gave it - Try it. Hash Browns were best ever!
11/14/2013 4:00:00 PM
Nice atmosphere, but expensive
We enjoyed the atmosphere and the service was superb. The food was nothing out of this world, but it was fresh, tasty and well presented. The wine list had a large selection. Our overall experience was very good, but the price we thought was greater than what we would consider appropriate for the experience.
I would recommend for a special occasion, but do not plan on visiting again because the wow factor and the value was just not there.
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Always a good choice
Had dinner at Oceanaire's in several occasions. Never had a complaint and always a good choice to dine with friends, family or clients. Very good food and service at a reasonable price.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
great service and superb seafood
Great seafood with so many choices and good service makes this restaurant incredible.

food was very good but pricey.
food was very good but pricey. Amount of time between appetizers and entrees was unacceptable but they gave us a complimentary baked alaska dessert to make up for the service delay.
