As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. 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.

    PattynTexas
    Dined on 5/14/2008
    We were celebrating a birthday and from the moment we arrived, we got very special treatment. The menu had the birthday girl's name on it with a "Happy Birthday" message and the waitstaff presented her with a card. After dinner (which was fantastic), she got a complimentary dessert - baked Alaska - which was just wonderful. The only negative was that we were seated upstairs and all the walking back and forth was very loud. We enjoyed outselves very much and we wouldn't hesitate to go back or recommend them to our friends.

    We really enjoyed our night at Oceanaire. We requested a quiet table and we were seated at one of the high-back booths on the second floor overlooking the main dining room. The food and service was great. As with most restaurants in Dallas, it was a little noisy, but being on the second floor in the booth softened the noise level.

    What a great restaurant. Absolutely the freshest fish, excellent preparation and presentation and abundant portions. We have dined here several times with friends and family and have always been pleased with the selection and service. The setting and service are first rate as well. Highly recommended for seafood lovers.

    Air conditioning was broken but stuff like that happens. Bartender was a bit rude and didn't find it necessary to garnish poorly made drinks with even a stir straw, not a good way to start the night. Luckily we had a quality energetic server who did all that was required of him. Enjoyed the mountain of ice covered in shellfish and a decent bottle of wine. We were given tasters of three different kinds of wine before deciding on a bottle which was a nice touch. Food was excellent and everything (in the dinning room) went as expected.

    Oceanaire is a true treat! My partner and I love Shane, the manager, and Laurel, the best waitress we've ever had. We have had Laurel as our waitress 5 times and cannot imagine dining without her. We wish she was our waitress everywhere we dine. She is extremely helpful in making suggestions according to what is fresh that evening, what we our in the mood for, and she is always the best at pairing the most fabulous wine. We simply love Oceanaire. We rave about it to all our friends. Sincerely, Ross Allen and Curtis Hill

    We dined for a special occasion. The waiter basically gave us the bumbs rush and was very concerned about his tip. That basically ruined the evening for my husband and I. The food was delicious and the backup staff was very good. It was difficult when we observed everyone around us being offered coffee, dessert and a leisurely dinner, and all we got was the check.

    The food was delicious. The restaurant is lovely. The general service was very good. That would have been enough to make a lovely outing but we were fortunate enough to have Mason as our waiter and that made it an unforgettale meal. His service was perfect - a wonderful blend of southern charm and infectious comedy. We will definitely go back and I am sure we would enjoy it under any cicumstances but we will certainly try to have Mason as our waiter whenever we return.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2005
    Dined on 2/18/2006
    The Oceanaire by far has got to be the best seafood place I have encountered in Texas, and at this point I can only think of one place in the US that could top it. Seeing as the other place is on a dock in San Diego I'd say it has an unfair advantage though. My wife loved their crab cakes so much our first visit that she actually had them for both an appetizer and the entree! Every item I have had here has been delicious and perfectly cooked. This is a rare seafood place that I do not feel uneasy about trying a fish that I've never had before, and it was this place that I discovered that Monkfish is not only edible, but excellent. Even fish that I normally do not like, such as salmon, is done so good here that I'll eat it.
