H2Ocean Restaurant & Raw Bar
H2Ocean Restaurant & Raw Bar is located in the heart of Morris County, New Jersey just off of Route 10 and minutes off Route 287 in Cedar Knolls. We proudly opened our doors for business on August 11, 2014 after extensive renovations to what was once Il Giordino Restaurant. The interior experience of H2Ocean is beautiful and sophisticated with just enough whimsy thrown in to make it comfortable and fun.

Outstanding as always! The food is consistently fantastic, the specials are always changing, the quality and service is spectacular. This is definitely a favorite. Never change!
lobster tail plate was pre-prepared and then heated. Hence the tails were dry and tough. The salads were also pre-prepared and were therefore limp. Service was good.
This was my first time here & it did not disappoint! The food from the appetizers to the desserts were delicious. They also have yummy cocktails. I will definitely be dining here again! Just an FYI you cannot self park.
Great food, drinks selections and service. Highly recommended for all occasions.
A pleasant evening. Enjoyed a Delicious dinner. The food was Outstanding, the atmosphere was pleasant and the service Was great.
Very nice time, a very skilled culinary team
Best fish and great place
Excellent service, knowledgeable staff, amazing food.
Excellent atmosphere, service and food. Our favorite seafood restaurant.
This was not our first dinner at H2Ocean and will not be our last! Food, service and ambience are great. The only challenge for the first visit was finding it and not driving past it!
Everything was stellar. We had the Raw NY Fire Oysters....so fresh, so smooth you could barely tell they came from the ocean. Our entrees were delightful....crispy Salmon and Sear Scallops....felt satisfied but great!! Will definitely come back again...Thinking Thursday for Happy Hour :)
Excellent experience all around!! Active Bar area. Upbeat vibe. Food was superb as usual and never disappoints. FRESH & FLAVORFUL. Our Server, David was a delight, knowledgeable and attentive. He and his team were truly outstanding.
We had a great time and the food was delicious! Highly recommend!
This place has so much hype and nothing to back it up. I thought the appetizers were solid. The main course was terrible. The surf and turf was one of the worst. The place was busy but it was very understaffed. We went for my friends birthday and we usually go to pretty nice places. The value of what you get is terrible. It's expensive which is fine but the food is just mediocre toward not so great. The lobster in the surf and turf was over cooked and covered in some brown sauce. The filet was over cooked by far I asked for rate. The waiter barley checked on us, so even if we wanted to order more drinks etc, that wasn't really possible. I wouldn't bother returning. If the service were better maybe it would be 3/4 stars Maybe. But honestly you probably are better off at a chain like Cheesecake facotry where you conisistently expect mediocroity and you pay for it.
We had a great time, our waiter Fernando is always excellent.
It’s always nice to sit and enjoy good food and service!
Some dishes were really good and some were mediocre so overall it’s good. The dollar oysters were very small and not worth it. Legal seafood just raised their price yo $1.50 and you get a real oyster there. The shrimp were delicious but the chicken dried out. The octopus was delicious but not delivered to the level of the website photo. We would go back however with different expectations now.
Always my go-to restaurant when I want sea food. My favorite is the Halibut. My wife loves the swordfish. I have a vegetarian friend who raved about his dish. Nice atmosphere. Plenty of space between tables. Service is always top-notch. My only complaint is the valet parking which I can’t stand but that’s just me and certainly not a reason to avoid this gem of a dining experience.
Awesome kale, scallops
Our meal was great our only complaint was due to the heat wave it was literally sweltering inside so we were very uncomfortable. Wish our waiter was willing to let us move to other side where it was 10 degrees cooler....we were bummed when we saw that difference upon leaving. Otherwise it was fine, just brutal with the temperature issue
Another great dining experience. Only drawback was service a little slow which can be expected for a Saturday night.
Food was wonderful.
Another great wedding anniversary dinner at H2O. The food was outstanding. The service was exceptional. Our waiter was great. We always look forward to every meal at H2O.
There is nothing not to like
A place that has the BEST SEAFOOD and Great Happy Hour too!
Wasn’t that crowded but service was terrible. Not worth it
Excellent fish and service.
Went for my birthday.
Had a lovely dinner - enjoyed the seafood salad and Ahi Tuna.
Had no room for dessert.
Promptly seated for our reservation for 4. Hostess accommodated our seating preference. The menu is very interesting and has dishes for every taste. I especially liked the simply grilled fish options! Really helpful when watching your diet. The portions of food were ample. The food was very good quality but my grilled fish was somewhat dry and the salmon ordered rare came well done. They promptly rectified the error with the salmon and offered us free dessert. A very nice touch. With free dessert each couple paid $180 with tip and 1 round of drinks + 2 glasses of wine. This restaurant is very pricey so we won’t visit too often, but would definitely go back.
What a treat, good food, service and a lovely atmosphere. We haven't stopped talking about it, looking forward to returning.
Place is cute. Cocktails are on point. Meatball appetizer is big enough to be a full entree...and they are amazing! Clams on the half shell were fresh and delicious. The bread for the table was out of bounds good! And the crabmeat pasta was packed with real crab, al dente, and super flavorful. The cheesecake was as good as anything you’d find in Brooklyn it Manhattan and the cookies filled with ice cream were enough for 4 people....I ate most of it: Fantastic! We’ll be back!!
Too pricey, no side dishes included with meal.
We always enjoy our time at H2Ocean. The staff is friendly and welcoming and the food and drinks are excellent!
Exceptional food and excellent service - a tad pricey for lunch but I’d still go back
The food is always good here. We have been to H2Ocean many times. The Monday night Lobster Mania special is a good deal. The problem that we have had every time we have been is the EXTREMELY slow service, especially when it comes time for the plates to be cleared and for us to get the check. Several times we have waited 20+ minutes for the bill.
Great service, delicious food. Will definitely return!
Very good food and service. Also a beautiful setting. My wife did not want her entree because she was too full, they took it back, no charge. Great desserts, too!
Two of the meals were seafood, my company said it was just ok. Have been there before and our guests loved it. Hope next time they just order something else.
Great place for excellent seafood while on a business trip
Food is tremendous. Prices are high.
Always an amazing experience!!! Such wonderful food and service.
