That was a belated excellent mother's day dinner. I had a delicious mussels with marinara sauce in bread for appetizer, which was a big portion. I couldn't eat my ocean pasta entree.
My husband had filet mignon.
Mussels was very cleaned.

Ocean on the long island sound

beautiful views:) food improved!
I dined on Memorial Day weekend. We ate outside. The outdoor dining is clean and you feel like you're on vacation. Go to watch a sunset as they are amazing. The shrimp cocktail are very good, super jumbo. Oysters on the half fresh and tasty. We split a caesar salad which is good size for two and a ribeye steak which is also enough for two. The wine could have been a bit more chilled and the pour was a little low. The server was attentive and friendly. However, she could have used more help from the bus station. Overall, great night and the weather always makes everything better when the suns out:)

If you ignore the fake plants and cruiseship carpets, the new "Ocean" is definitely worth trying out. We ordered Crabcake app, Baramondi, and Filet Mignon. All done very well. Service is professional and Cyrus (GM?) made sure we were checked up on to make a nice touch. Menu was more sophisticated than before but cost us less than last year when we came. I think drinks prices are down so great all around!!
5/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
We found the newly named Ocean to be great. Menu was a bit limited but the apps were great. Staff could have been better prepared. Waitress who delivered our sushi didn't know what she was serving. Waiter seemed out of breath and was sweating. Staff was very friendly and eager to please. Sushi chef was very nice and waved to us from his outside kitchen. Views are fabulous. Nice get-away location without leaving the island.

Worth going back to!
Went for a quiet midweek dinner expecting a great view and average food and service but was super happy when we found out the place was under new management and everything save Mr. Lee's sushi had changed. Had the crab cakes, buratta salad, followed by salmon, and seafood pasta special which were all fresh and simply done unlike previous over-conceptualized dishes. Desserts were poor but since our server Keltsey had forewarned us, it doesn't affect out experience. My wife recognized the new manager Sirus from an episode of Long Island Medium and he visited the table several times to check in and also bought us coffe and tea to make up for the dessert. Thanks! We will be back and we look forward to another great night at the "ocean"

Much to my surprise,
Much to my surprise,
After hearing about the changes that were made that the restaurant. My wife and I stop by for an early dinner at Ocean. It was just before seven in the evening and we went upstairs to have a cocktail. The young lady behind the bar informed us that they had a happy hour from 5-7pm Monday to Friday which included 50% off all drinks and half-price on all sushi at the bar and sushi bar. They have some of the best sushi on Long Island here, we each had a drink and then had some sushi. We never made it downstairs for dinner but we enjoyed our drinks and sushi the beautiful view and atmosphere but the best part was that everything we had was half-price. Will be back for sure. Great food, Great drinks, Great value.

Simply breaktaking views...........
My wife's "39th birthday".........again..
In a few words,,,,,a wonderful tropical setting; we would have thought we were in the caribbean with the view/waterfront surroundings of this fine restaurant. Restaurant had palm trees while we watched a sunset wedding. Entrees/appetizers expertly presented and delicious. Service was very good-- we will, no doubt, return this summer for an encore engagement. Well done!!!!!!!!

Bread was outstanding! We
Bread was outstanding! We must have ordered 3 plates of bread! Sangria was good. Food was good and seafood was fresh! The view is amazing. Nice job with the beach and the palm trees. Makes you feel like you are not on Long Island.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
The restaurant features a great view of the beach, including some added sand and palm trees. This is the best beach view of any of the local restaurants (because so many of the tables have a great view.)
6/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
a true gem
this place is a hot spot to go for dinnner the sunset is the a amazing the outdoor deck has a great breeze and u feel like your on the islands looking down at the beach and watching the boats go by the food was of the hook everything was wonderful loved the service i would go back again and again
6/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was a great oceanfront dining place to go!!

A trip to the islands,
Dining at Ocean is like a trip to the islands.. you can eat outside under an umbrella covered deck above the Long Island sound view the sandy beach spotted with tropical palm trees. Time it right you will enjoy a beautiful sunset across the water. If that wasn't enough the food is fresh and leans towards locally caught fish and lobster. They bring freshly baked flatbreads with Hummus and flavored butter to the table when you are first seated which really is a special treat. I had the scallops they were great my wife ordered the simply grilled, which is the chefs choice of the fish for the day just simply grilled it was magnificent. The service was good our servicer's name was Adrian and the prices are fair. That night the sunset was magical
6/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Hands down the Best swordfish I've ever eaten, while it wasn't on the menu, it was a special for the night and am I happy i ordered it. Great views of the Sound and sunset. Definitely we'll be back
6/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Ocean was a great experience. We ate inside, but I wish we were able to eat outside. The view was amazing. I felt like I was on vacation! The food was very good and the servers were very attentive. I hated the carpet! The carpet reminds you that you're attached to a catering hall.
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Just can't get enough of the Ocean
This is my third time back in as many weeks. My wife and I love to meet for dinner at the beach after work, and Ocean has much to offer. The first time we had sushi, the next time we ate on the main level deck, and this time we ate upstairs at the Sunset Grill. I made reservations for downstairs and on arriving the manager Stephanie remembered us from our prior visits, we asked if we could eat upstairs [they don't take reservations for the Sunset Grill] she took us upstairs to the third level which has the most magnificent view. The menu was simple, I had a burger and my wife had grilled fish, the prices are inline for a casual dining setting.The Sunset was stunning the food was good, service great, we're now planning our next trip to Ocean
7/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful, friendly staff coupled with delicious food beautifully presented. Great spot with a wonderful view.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Just like our wedding night
We got married at the Crescent Beach Club in 2011,we have been coming back to celebrate our anniversary and plan to for many years to come. Great food, ambience, and amazing sunsets!

Waterfront dining at its best!
We 0arrived 30 minutes early. To our surprise, on a very busy Friday night we were seated immediately at a table for two right next to the window. We were just in time for a spectacular sunset view. As soon as we sat we were presented with water and a plate of fresh homemade bread with hummus and garlic butter. Within a few moments our lovely waitress came and took our drink orders. The service was attentive. The specialty drinks were delicious and the sushi was fantastic. We both had the filet mignon and it was so tender we did not need a steak knife. For dessert, the watermelon sorbet was cool and refreshing. Overall, a wonderful, romantic evening. We will surely come back to try more entrees!

A Great Night in Bayville!!!!
What a great night. We sat by the window and felt like we were in Florida as the Palm Trees swayed with the breeze. The food was fabulous.
The chicken was moist and tasty and my husband and our friends raved about the scallops and Sea Bass. The drinks were generous. The servers were very attentive and professional. The evening was relaxed and affordable. We will go back often. What a fun atmosphere. We ended the evening walking on the beach. What a treat.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The customer service was great, the food is phenomenal. My husband & i were very pleased. We actually had dined there previously and fell in love with it, the following month we ended up booking the catering hall for our wedding! It's an amazing place and everything they have to offer is wonderful down to the courteously employees who aim to please you. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone whether it be for a wedding or scenic dinning experience overlooking the ocean in the beach.
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had dinner with two special friends. We sat outside. Memorable night. The weather was so beautiful and the views unbelievable. Food delicious. Cannot wait to go back.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
We arrived and the hostess did not have our reservation we made thru open table, other than that the view is outstanding and the food is good. Will definitley go back!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent water front dining
Food and service at Ocean was excellent. The executive chef even took the time to stop by the table and ask how we were enjoying our meal. Food was superb and our server was very attentive and personal. The view is unbeatable and we will definitely be back.
7/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful sunset on our Anniversary
Beautiful outdoor dining. Excellent food and ambience. It was our 21st anniversary. The couple across the way was celebrating their 11 th. the young couple next to us disappeared and came engaged. It was nice while we all shared champagne. It was our first time and we'll be back.
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful restaurant with
Beautiful restaurant with beautiful views of the L.I. Sound. The palm tree on the beach create a feeling you are in the Caribbean. The food was very good, the service very friendly and eager to please. I will definitely go back.
8/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, service, and atmosphere
I went here to celebrate my anniversary and I couldn't be happier with my experience. Our server, Shabir was extremely attentive and the food was amazing. I got the Filet Mignon and my husband got the special ocean pasta. The whole ambiance and gorgeous view added to the whole night to make it an overall great experience. I would highly recommend dining here to anyone looking for a great meal by the water!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
There are a few outdoor decks, on different levels, all with an AWESOME view of L.I. Sound and - of course - the sunset! We got married (outdoors) there two Summers ago and come back every now and then for a visit, some "together time". Dinner was great, all the staff were very very friendly.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Our 25th Anniversary
We were very pleased with our choice to spend our 25th here. The view was spectacular, my wife commented that it felt like we were in the Caribbean. I am not usually a seafood lover but the Ocean Pasta special as absolutely delicious. It was one of the highlights of evening. The staff was courteous, they comped us a small favor I guess for anniversary. Plan on coming again in future.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow - neighborhood gem!!!
We had dinner outdoors after a day of sailing. The views were unbelievable and the service was top-notch. While we were there we witnessed a marriage proposal, which itself is a testimony to the beauty of the surroundings and the food. The food is excellent, the service is top-notch, and the views of the setting sun as you eat dinner are to die for. We will definitely be back every time we go sailing in Oyster Bay.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Spectacular water view
This place is one of the loveliest settings on the North Shore of LI. Going there for a dinner just before sunset is magical.
All 3 of us liked the food very much. Good seafood selection. Very nice and attentive service. Would recommend this highly.
To guarantee a table outside, it's best to get there early for dinner. Even though the inside seating offers also nice water views.
There is also a nice bar upstairs if you'd like to just have appetizers and drinks.
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
a great surprise
I had brought my fiance there for a special evening. She was going to be away on business for a week starting the next day. My concern was I wanted something on the North Shore and on the water (which there arn't very many) BUT I have just read a dreaded Newsday article about the place. I thought if I could at least have the view and a good cocktail I would be fine. I have to tell you I was really surprised by the great food, wine and service. Newday could not have been more wrong. But as it turns out in furthier review, that review was done months ago with a different chef and crew. The Ocean was totally reinvented itself and is a real gem. I would go back easily...yes the view is amazing but so is the food and the service!
8/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful restaurant, great setting, great food, great servic. Highly recommend.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and great views
Great food and great views of the Long Island sound.
Barrumundi was perfect. Chicken was tender and juicy. Mash potatoes were okay. Drinks were top of the line. Definitely going back.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
It just keeps getting better......
This is our third visit to Ocean, it just keeps getting better. We love the variety of options sushi, seafood, pasta, and great steaks, as well as some great specials prepared on a daily basis. The food is contemporary and unique, the service is friendly and helpful, and the setting is beautiful and romantic. It's a great place to dine. ...for a special occasion or a casual night with sushi at the bar don't miss the sunset.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Vistas and sunset from outdoors or indoors to die for.
Menu is limited and pricey but very romantic.and excellent for that special night
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great for Sunday Brunch
We occasionally drive out to The Crescent Beach Club for Sunday Brunch. It has a great view of the water, excellent food, and excellent service. It's an enjoyable way to spend Sunday morning.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
I went there for the first time for Thanksgiving dinner and was So Surprised. Besides the gorgeous view, the food was outstanding as well as the superb service and the entire staff was extremely nice. Definitely go there!!!!!!!!!!!
