    Went with a group and had a great time - the meal was wonderful....but beware. Our waitress asked if we would like her to put a sampler platter together of their appetizers, to which we agreed. There were 7 of us, and when the bill arrived we found that she had brought us $300 of appetizers. We felt she took advantage, which spoiled a nice evening.

    I have been twice, and both times have been amazing! The food is incredible, and the service is excellent. The oyster bar is unique and definitely worth trying. I have had seafood both times while my wife had surf and turf. Her steak was up to par with any other fine dining experience. Love this place, and will be back again.

    The food was just OK- The grilled fish selection are plain and fishy tasting. Watch out for bones in your fish. The clam chowder was good. The bar drinks are good but you need to specify what brand you want or they will ring up what they choose. For the money I would go somewhere else.

    Was excited about trying this restaurant. The escargot, the bread and the clam chowder was very good. The black grouper was tasteless. The cobia was fishy which is unusual for that fish. The white anchovy salad was disappointing. The ambience is very cold and white. While this restaurant was not bad, it wasn't good enough for the $200+ bill that my husband and I paid. We eat at expensive fine dining establishments often so it is not the money...it was what we got for the money. Would not go back. Don't waste your time. Go to OceanPrime. Better service, better ambience, and better food. Same prices.

    We were not impressed with the the food or service. For an upscale restaurant, the service was not acceptable. The staff appears to want to be anywhere but working. The food was equally unimpressive. Everything overseasoned. I must have had 6 glasses of water to try and clench my thirst. Bottom line: this is a tourist restaurant. You won't find any locals here.

    This place was pricey, but it was our 24th wedding anniversary, so a good place to splurge. They made it special by customizing the menu with our names and a Happy Anniversary announcement, and gave us a free appetizer and dessert. Nice ambience. I would go back for special occasion only, because like I said, it's pricey.

    The appetizers were delicious but my redfish a little overcooked. The service was very nice but a little slow to get drinks, but I think it was not his fault but maybe that of the bar. The ambiance is nice and not too loud so we could actually have a conversation.

I let the staff know it was my wife's birthday when I made the reservation. She was greated with smiles and happy birthdays along with a custom printed menu wishing her a special day and a birthday card signed by the staff. Thank you for making her feel like the princess I know she is.

    We had been looking forward to dining at this restaurant, and there were some things we really enjoyed. The tables are nicely spaced, the noise level is very low, and the décor is modern and spare. The fresh seafood selection was wonderful, and the simple preparation (seared) was excellent. But a good piece of fish is not enough to overcome truly awful service and indifferent accompaniments. The lump crab appetizer was tasteless; the chef's preparations (melted leeks, mushroom risotto) were ordinary; and the caramel cake was mostly a huge, heavy chocolate brownie. The soup was delivered 10 minutes after the main course--and only after I asked what happened to it--and the salad never showed at all. For that price, we expected much more.

    We booked our reservation and were a bit late, which was no problem when we arrived. We brought our 6 year old daughter along and I would not recommend for dining with children. My husband ordered ribeye and I ordered the scallops. They were both delicious and I would highly recommend the side of green beans. Wine list was good also. I give it a thumb's up.

    The exceptional service and finest ingredients, definitely contributed to this restaurant's 5 star rating. Our server Rachid provided us with an amazing experience without being overbearing. He was very well versed in the wine selection, of which they have a very good variety, as well as the menu. He provided us with a pleasant and informative conversation throughout the dinner. The ambiance was very elegant, contemporary, yet cozy. The menu had a fantastic variety of creative seafood dishes, as well as a few options for those who do not care for seafood. The menu changes daily based on their freshest catches and they do allow for customization of menu items based on your request. Although pricey, it's well worth it for a special occasion.

    The menu is nicely varied even for steak lovers but I would have like to see a few more pasta/seafood combinations. I had shrimp stuffed with crab meat but I found more breading than crab meat in the stuffing. The shrimp were a good size and a generous portion. The side of pasta that is offered with the shrimp was extremely small but they allow you to order any pasta sauce. I chose garlic and oil which was delicious. My dining partner ordered Trigger fish and was very happy with the portion and flavor. Sides are enough for sharing We chose to visit there on a Friday during Lent because of the meat abstinence rule. We found out there was bacon in many of the menu items like the chowder. Fortunately our server made us aware of it.

    I Took my girlfriend to Orlando for a weekend getaway at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando. I did an "Fine Dining Seafood Orlando" web search and Oceanaire was one of the choices that came up. I'd never dined at Oceanaire before, so I thought I'd give it a try. I had their Sea Scallops and my girlfriend had the Fijian Big Eye Tuna. Both were absolutely delicious. The Clam Chowder was among the best I've ever had. The atmosphere is not quite as elegant as a Ruth's Chris, Ocean Prime or Eddie V's, but the presentation and service are on par with any fine dining restaurant I've ever visited. The next time I'm in Orlando I will definitely dine at this restaurant again. I highly recommend to anyone who enjoys seafood.

    We live an hour from Orlando, and visit Oceanaire 2-3 times a year. Food is consistent, always outstanding. We're never disappointed. Seafood entrees $30-35, consistent with other high-end restaurants. You get what you pay for. Seafood is flown in FRESH each day. Generous portions. Side dishes meant to be shared. Warm, crusty sourdough bread is to die for. Located in high traffic area of shops/dining so be sure to use the FREE valet parking service out front. Oceanaire has a nice little outdoor patio. The bar area is attractive and they have good happy hour prices (until 7pm). My (normally $12) cosmo was $7 at the happy hour bar. I always recommend Oceanaire. The food is consistent and service is excellent. You can't go wrong.

    Went there with some business colleagues. The restaurant was not busy at all, and it was a nice night so we asked to sit outside. At first, the service was OK and the waiters seemed attentive as they took our drink orders and food orders. Our apps and salads came out at a reasonable pace, and we were enjoying our meal, but the entrees seemed like they had to go catch the fish before they prepared it. It took well over an hour from the time they cleared our salads until the time our entrees came out. For the money, I expected something a little more spectacular, but our entrees were just OK. I guess that's what I should expect for a restaurant on International Drive near the convention center. I would not repeat.

    Waiter was very awkward and kept trying to talk us into something other than what we wanted to order. The wine he talked us into was way too sweet, and we were clear about the Chardonnay we were trying to order. He insisted we should try the blend that we "would love"and it was nothing like a chard. We didn't care for it at all. The entree he talked me into was not at all what I wanted or was trying to order. Not my first time there but with all the great restaurants I'm Orlando. I probably will try another next time I'm after seafood.

    After nearly a week of very mediocre dining, we made a last minute reservation, (literally on the way there). We were seated right away. Fabulous wine list, and beautiful mojitos. Service was well-paced, very friendly and attentive, but not overbearing. I highly recommend the crab cakes. They were beautiful and delicious. Our group also enjoyed the stone crab, grilled salmon, stuffed shrimp and a very perfectly cooked, medium-rare filet. It was a wonderful experience.
