A word from Oceanaire Seafood Room - Atlanta
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.

    The Oceanaire was excellent, as always. They personalized the experience after being informed that we'd be celebrating my mother's birthday. She was very impressed by the attention that the staff provided her with on her special day. The combination of quality service, craveable food, and relaxed atmosphere made the evening very memorable. The Oceanire remains atop my list of superior eating spots.

    I enjoyed this restaurant so much I am organizing a dinner for my mother and her ladies group at The Oceanaire. They will be attending the opening night of The Color Purple @ The Fabulous Fox Theatre. They were excited about the play and are eagerly anticipating their dinner at The Oceanaire. I've been raving about the atmosphere, food and the excellent service. I have no doubt they will love their dinning experience as much as I did.

    The Oceanaire Seafood Room is outstanding! We went there for our 25th wedding anniversary and they went above and beyond to ensure our evening was memorable. They printed special menus with Happy 25th Anniversary at the top and the chef sent out special tastings for us to enjoy. Also they gave us a free baked alaska dessert. The food was superb. The service was fantastic. As the saying goes....it is all in the details...and they don't skip any details. Even something as small as labeling the contents of each of the to go containers. I highly recommend this restaurant. Absolutely the best seafood restaurant in Atlanta!!!

The service was friendly without being cloying. Food was delicious and had special touches. Highly recommend for a special occasion!

    I have always been consistently pleased with the meals I've enjoyed at Oceanire. The chef's standard menu is wonderful, but he also creates unbelievable specials. However, the scallops special on June 5 and it was the most delectable treat I've ever had there. I am hopeful it will become a regular part of the menu.

    I have dined at Oceanaire several times and have always had excellent service. However this visit I did not have good service. Drink glasses were not refilled until you were completely out. Food was not given to the correct people. We were not told if there were any “specials” on the menu that day. The check took a long time coming and took even longer to be picked up and paid. This was a special occasion for our Administrative Assistants and I am sorry to say it was just okay. Oceanaire can do better!

    The best seafood I've had in Atlanta, GA in a long time. Everything was spectacularly fresh and flavorful--from bisque to crab cakes to scallops and swordfish. Our waiter shared some excellent knowledge about the food without overwhelming or condescending. It's rare to find a high end restaurant with friendly staff, a generally casual setting, and such high quality food. I would recommend Oceanaire to anyone looking for such a positive experience.
