***OCEAN RESTAURANT, THE SUNSET LOUNGE, & THE SUSHI BAR ARE OFFICIALLY OPENED FOR THE 2022 SEASON***

Set within one of Long Island’s most spectacular waterfront venues, Ocean provides guests with an unparalleled dining experience and setting. The restaurant’s architecture, which includes floating sculptures of fish chasing squid through the dining room is bettered only by the stunning sunsets and panoramic views of the Long Island sound.

The re-conceptualized new American menu is an unpretentious and honest approach to using quality products (both seasonal and organic) by skilled artisans in a way to provide the best epicurean experience. Our professional and devoted service will make any occasion worth remembering.

    While it was the first Friday of summer and a beautiful evening, it was extremely noisy inside and the wait for drinks and food was longer than in the past on similar visits. The entrees did not grab us so we opted for sushi which was just ok. The drinks were ridiculously overpriced and puny

    Beautiful restaurant for a fantastic view and sunset (if you get the perfect table ); food was ok but not worth the price tag; our waiter Brandon was excellent. Overall I give it a 4 because it was in a beautiful location and we did have the perfect night to sit outside and enjoy the sunset.

    Gorgeous views! But that’s all. Extremely disappointing! Tables jammed together like sardines on the deck. Everyone’s backs were up against each other. It was ridiculous! Noise level made it impossible to talk. We ordered calamari which were rubbery and tasteless. Ordered a burger medium rare and had to return because it had the texture of a hockey puck being so over cooked. The shrimp app was actually ok. The food took forever. Not worth the money. During all of this, the waitress, began spraying a cleaning solution into the air at the table next to us (rather than spraying it into her rag) and it went all over us including in my eye!! I finally got up and just walked out as my husband reluctantly paid the bill. The whole experience was so over the top outrageous that I felt I had to write this. I wish I could get my money back. That said, maybe it was a bad day, maybe the usual chef was out sick, maybe it was an aberration. Everyone deserves a second chance, so try at your own risk. I however will never return

    We have been coming here with friends but upon our last visit, we noticed the food quality is not the same. We ordered fried calamari and it looked and tasted like we were eating at a fast food restaurant. The calamari was tiny and not crunchy unlike other upscale restaurants. We don’t remember it was this bad in the past. The coconut shrimps were dried. The sushi rice was soggy and I found a piece of the Saran Wrap on my sushi. We spent $825 and very disappointed and we don’t think we will be back, at least not for dinner. If you are going to charge a high price then serve high quality!!!

    Mr. Lee is great at making Sushi.. my sushi was so fresh and delicious! I was a bit disappointed in the chicken appetizer - very small portion as well as the special of the day which was the Bronzino. The Bronzino did not seem fresh at all. Overall, the server we had was excellent - the rest of our meal was great - and the overall view was SPECTACULAR!

    Great view. Been at Ocean a few times in the past. First time we have waited over 45 min for server to come to take orders including drinks. We have asked the bus boy a few times before any assistance. The manager finally showed up on his own to inquire if there are any issues…. Over all, it def has a beautiful view. The fried cauliflower was a hit.

    Everything started off great with a very attentive waiter and perfect ambiance. We did have to wait about 30 min for our table despite a reservation but didn’t mind. The calamari was good as were sushi rolls ordered as appetizers. All went downhill with entrees. My daughters shrimp tacos were inedible. My husband never received his dinner when everyone else’s came out. We didn’t see a waiter for another 20 minutes and then had to wait longer because nobody even checked to see that all meals came out. Luckily only about five minutes after that they brought out a salmon. He enjoyed it but of course we had all finished eating. My branzino was fair. Very tiny and very overpriced. Bottom line is go for the view, the cocktails, and excellent sushi.

    We had a great night sitting outside watching the sunset over the water. There are palm trees! We were greeted and advised of the options available to us. We had happy hour upstairs and it was great. The Sashimi and Sushi rolls are so fresh- We had the Tacos, Coconut Shrimp and Cauliflower- all delicious each with a different accompaniment. We did save enough room to share the Strawberry Shortcake dessert and it was worth every spoonful. And the service was attentive, and even funny! We had a great night.

    Beautiful location overlooking the LI sound. Food was tasty but expensive. Better to go for happy hour with half priced appetizers. We had to wait at least 15 minutes before being addressed to be seated. When finally acknowledged, the host was very rude and commented that we were early for our reservation. It was 2:30pm on a Sunday and not at all crowded. It started out lunch on a sour note.

    Went for my husband’s birthday dinner. He loves watching the sunset at each birthday. The service was mediocre, took forever to get food and dishes were served very randomly, because we were told the kitchen was “backed up.” The jerk chicken wrap was horrible, the combination of flavors just did not work but no one asked about if we liked our meals so we just left it and ate Fries. My husband liked his Lobster roll. And my daughter did enjoy her burger. The sushi was black, but I guess I should not have ordered sushi here. The view is breathtaking and we enjoyed our wine as the sunset.

    All my husbands food was cold, likely due to the long wait times between courses. Constantly disturbed by people coming by to talk to some famous guy, constantly blocking our view of the sunset (which is really the main reason we come here). Not the best night but the staff is super sweet. Food is overpriced for what you get, other resturants in its league have better pricing for the same quality/portions.

    The menu has changed a lot over the years, the spinach and artichoke dip is no longer on the menu, the watermelon and feta salad they used to have was amazing, and I feel like some other things were just missing. However the spicy crunchy red Dragon sushi roll is always amazing and the service is very good and we are well taken care of there. The views are a 10 out of 10!

    Beautiful spot and they know it. Lower your expectations before you go. Food and service are consistently poor, and it's been like that for years. They make their money on weddings. Go knowing that and enjoy the water/beach views.

    It took over 2 hours to get our main course and when it arrived it was over cooked. The drinks were also not good- espresso martini only had vodka and espresso in it; bartender left out the Bailey’s Irish cream, crème de mint etc.

    We had a fabulous time with my sister and Mom. This wasn’t planned it was spontaneous and you guys delivered, we came earlier than our scheduled time. Food was great , our waiter Matt was very nice. The only thing was that we got charged for the wrong bottle of wine but it was rectified at the end. I’m from out of town and will definitely consider coming back to your establishment.

    The beach does not provide guests, only nearby residents are allowed to go down to swim. The restaurant's service is not good, urging us to order, but not taking the initiative to help us add water. Ask for the bill after eating. Give guests very bad impression, can't you sit and enjoy the sea breeze for a while after dinner

    First time here - ambiance was gorgeous and there was a wedding taking place as we arrived. Just beautiful! Our waitress was so patient as she kept returning to inquire if we were ready to order….our party was so chatty! Lol. Cocktails were amazing, appetizers were delicious but could have been a bit bigger in size. All meals at our table were a hit. Sushi was incredible! Desserts were just as amazing!! We ordered 3 different desserts and all were delicious!! Already told friends about our experience and we will be back very soon!!! Perfect place to eat outdoors with the beach in the background!
