Enjoy an entr�e such as the caramelized diver scallops, the seared duck breast, or the lobster, shrimp and scallops ravioli served in a sherry cream sauce.

Ocean 235 offers an international wine list, as well as many beers, martinis and cocktails to complement its meals.
Always enjoy the visit to Ocean! It's hard to call what the do "service" because it's so personal.
I was pleased to find that the protein dishes could mostly be made/already were gluten free. The duck was well cooked. I wasn't a fan of the sauce, but it was fancy and beautiful. My date did not require a gluten free plate and loved his gnochi with shrimp. He described it as fresh and tastey.
Love the atmosphere! We had a cushiony booth with a possibly hand carved wooden table. High scale and laid back? Yes!
Been here before and would go back again. Food is great and usual table service is also great.
However this should be noted after dining this past Saturday night. Even though I made a reservation through OpenTable early the week ahead, arrived for reservation and was told it would be an additional 15-20 minutes to be seated. While this is not typical, I tried to be understanding.
Another person came in while waiting by the door and the hostess dismissed them telling them that the restaurant was booked for the night. The person stated they just went on opentable and it was filled with vacant reservations. While I waited I decided to check and this was indeed true. They really need to properly plan and communicate on reservation avail
Have visited Ocean before and finally got back there with a group of friends. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent. We tried a number of small plates and dinners with no one being disappointed. It should not be missed if you are eating in Easton.
Recommended wines were unique and matched well with our food.
A local favorite. Brought two out of town friends this evening - one a definite foodie. Meals were wonderful. Service was exceptional. Evening was great. Excellent in every way.
Ocean is one of our favorite restaurants. It is a little pricey; we don't mind because the food is always so good. The service is very good & the manager/owner is always so friendly and makes sure you are satisfied.
I dined at Ocean last September and the experience was amazing. The duck and lobster mac were amazing (although I'm not so sure about using orzo for mac, but that's just my preference. Maybe cavatappi?) I'm hoping it was a restaurant week rush/scramble but the food was not nearly as good as it was the first time. Crab cake was good, lobster bisque was meh - a bit bitter and tasted burnt, seems like it was just ground up lobster shells/heads with a hit of cream and maybe some stock, the "Crispy Chicken" skin was hardly crisp, a bit soggy actually but had good flavor.
The food was good, but expensive. We had lousy seats by the door and had tables about 6 inches from us on either side (it's a bench seat on one side that is shared by all the tables with chairs on the other side). Candles were LED, which is lame. Bill was $90 before tip for 2 drinks each, 2 dinners, and 1 biqsue. Mixed drinks weren't very good. And the martini was kinda warm. Would not return.
This is by far the best restaurant in Easton. The food is absolutely amazing. You will not be disappointed.
I loved the incredibly warm romantic feel of this place - quite and subtle. Crabcakes were ever do delicious and the seared salmon was absolutely amazing. So many choices of desserts we had a hard time deciding. I look foward to returing to try other entrees. Service exceeded our expectations and the prices were affordable. You are missing out on a romantic evening with excellent food and great service if you do not visit Ocean.
