Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    The Oceanaire is a great restaurant! We went there to celebrate my girlfirend's 25th birthday. As we walked in we were greeted by the host, the manager, and every server we passed walking to our table. Our server Richard was outstanding! First, when he came to introduce himself he had a birthday card for my girlfriend from the restaurant. He knew the menu like the back of his hand and even made suggestions on a wine my girlfriend loved! We were very well taken care of. The food was amazing and the Baked Alaska they brought out for her birthday desert was awesome. Very classy place, we will definitley dine there again.

    From the moment you walk in the atmosphere grabs you. It is like a trip back in time when servers were attentive and the times were elegant. At no time during the meal did we want for anything. The food was delivered in a timely manner and was at the appropriate temperature. Drink were kept full and crumbs brushed away. I almost felt like a VIP.

    The Oceannaire staff was SO attentive. It was my and my mother's birthday- they made us feel so special! They wrote "happy birthday" on the top of our menus, and even had the staff sign a card for each of us! After an absolutely delectable meal, they treated us to a serving of baked Alaska- my parents said it was the best they'd ever had! My dad, who considers himself a lobster bisque connosiur, called the Lobster bisque the second best he'd ever tasted- that's a high award! Thanks so much, Oceannaire! Melinda (and Eileen)

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 1/3/2009
    Champagne was served perfectly chilled & bubbly each and every time! Phenomenal selection of choices of seafood. "Hash Browns" (w/ bacon & tabasco) were best I've ever had! Great selection of crudeties upon seating. On the other hand the broiled lobster was a touch dry, the goat cheese salad had unnecessary ingredients on top. Service could have been a bit better, he was nice but unskilled. "water girl" stayed a little long talking to my host (even if he did egg her on) and when she returned w/ a folded up piece of paper, I had to quip if it was her number?! This was a restaurant that w/ a few touch ups could go from good to great. We need them here in Orlando--go the extra mile and don't give up!

    I was very disappointed in the dining experience. The price did not match the quality of the food. The seafood appetizer tray was completely inadaquate for the price charged and I was not impressed by the presentation. My friends and I have dined at many up-scale Orlando restaurants and this has been out first failure. Good luck with the convention trade as the locals will not return.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006VIP
    Dined on 12/23/2008
    The Oceanaire was absolutely dead on the holiday night that we visited. I think because they had so little to do, the service was suffocating rather than attentive. Admittedly, I was out with a group of dear friends who hadn't seen each other in a number of years, so we were a little rambunctious. That said, we felt like we were in the library and were in constant danger of being shushed. The food was average, the expense was high and the wait staff was haughty. All in all, not the Oceanaire's best showing.

    One of the best in Orlando. Truly enjoyed. Great great food and excellent wine and martinis. The swordfish was moist and tasty and the mussels were plumb. We are picky and this was SUPERB!! The only thing for improvement is how quick the server brought the cocktails...it was a long wait but everything else was top notch

Worth at least one Michelin star, maybe two. Bravo!

    I dined outside and the noise level was quiet; I'm not sure what the inside level is. Four waiters couldn't do enough to be gracious and helpful during dinner; the manager also greeted me upon arrival and thanked me for dining there after dinner. I'd like to see descriptions and prices on the specialty cocktails; I ordered the Oceanaire, which I wasn't wild about, and it was $11.25. very flavorful shrimp gumbo (although I wish it had more shrimp) also very good acorn squash and very fresh Florida snapper - mild and grilled One of the waiters said, "The Key lime pie is incredible." It is delicious and the HUGEST serving I've ever see in a restaurant.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/7/2008
    The food actually ranged from outstanding to very mediocre. The appetizers were wonderful (Crab Cake, Shrimp with Grits, Calamari) but the entrees were bland and lacked seasoning (Polenta w/ Scallops and Stuffed Flounder) and we did not care for the "sweet" green beans. Sometimes chefs can get a little too fancy with such an item as green beans and no need to do so when yo have some great items on menu. Simplicity with such an item can be best and it would save time and money in your kitchen. Service was slow but the server did not appear to be that way at other tables around us. It was odd. I mentioned to one of the managers that it was my wife's birthday and he stated they would do the Baked Alaska at our table but it never happened

Love the atmosphere, the recommendations and the presentation. The Baked Alaska was a wonderful end... though enough for four people to enjoy. The flaming at tableside was so fun... and the servers were just terrific.

    I love the Oceanaire for their very fresh seafood. I have only been disappointed with a couple dishes (black & blue sword fish that was only a half inch thick and overdone per the Chef's recommendation; a whole pompano that could've been bait to catch a real fish). The oysters are wonderful and you can't go wrong with the salt and vinegar fries. Also, when the waiter messed up on one of the orders...we got free Baked Alaska!
