    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 2/24/2010
    We were looking forward to our anniversary dinner with another couple. We were seated outside and it was lovely. Then the music started, from 2 places: Oceans playing one soundtrack and the place next door another. We were in the middle and it was terrible. We moved inside where we could only hear one track. We had eaten calamari appetizer outside. It was tough. The main courses were tasty, tho the clams with liguini could have had more garlic. The waiter had to be reminded to bring us bread and a bowl for clam shells. He also took about 10 minutes to bring a glass of wine during dinner. Luckily we were with good company and laughed a lot and vowed not to return.

    Went there for Valentine's Day and had a great time. Seafood was fresh and tasty. On a cool breezy winter night, they put down the wind barriers and had plenty of heat devices making the setting completely comfortable. The view as always is a beautiful beach setting. The solo musician made the night truly special.

    The fact that we used Open Table did not seem to make a difference. We arrived and still had to wait one half hour. I might add that there were many tables empty as we walked through to walk on the boardwalk. Seems to be there was not enough service provided to be able to turn the tables.

    Oceans is casual dining - fun atmosphere. On a chilly evening, the heaters do not do enough of a job of keeping you warm since you are sitting outside. Good breadth of food choices from appetizers that can serve at main dishes to seafood, lamb, chicken, etc.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 12/24/2009
    Surf & Turf was an absolute rip-off! The filet was average, sauce was bland and the shrimp were burned black!!! We had a party of twelve and the server didn't write down drink orders. Needless to say, he forgot some (sigh). When I mentioned that the shrimp were burnt and showed them to the server, he said that he would talk to the manager and they would be removed from the bill (but it wasn't). Of our party, about half of the crowd had good entrees and the other half were disappointed. In a nutshell, we couldn't wait to get out of there and would not recommend this place to anyone else.

    The ocean view can not be beat. It truly is a beautiful setting. Lunchtime man fixinf fans with electric drill not so good but I do understand. We ordered 3 paninis and all 3 were burnt they were not paninis more like sub rolls toasted too much. The waiter although very polite lost us for a while lunch took way too long. I had to go find him talking once to get bill. They did comp our sandwhiches but it seemed that it was the neverending lunch. I do believe in this restaurant and want them to do well just a few things they may want to look at.
