***OCEAN RESTAURANT, THE SUNSET LOUNGE & BAR, & THE SUSHI BAR ARE ON AN ANNUAL WINTER HIATUS AND WILL REOPEN IN SPRING 2022***

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 panoramic views of the Atlantic waters as they arrive on the beach 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.

                  Went to Ocean Restaurant for the first time with family and close friends after hearing so many wonderful things about it. This hidden jewel in the north shore of Long Island did not disappoint. Service was impeccable from the moment we were greeted by their general manager Mel, who gave us a spectacular table with an amazing view of the sunset, and checked on us periodically without being overbearing and yet maintaining his professionalism sans the stuffiness other high end places exude. Brandon our server was fabulous and quite accommodating with our particular needs; my girlfriends were in love. I barely write reviews, but this one I couldn’t pass up. Looking forward to our next visit at Ocean and many many more …

                  We were very disappointed with the service at Ocean tonight. Our reservation was for outdoor dining and it wasn't available. We were seated inside and served our appetizers there. Then we were moved outside and served our entrees. One of our orders was never place so we had to wait 40 minutes for it to be brought out. By that time everyone else's food was cold because we waited for the other order to be brought out. We didn't want my sons girlfriend to eat her meal alone when it came out. We told this to the waitress but she even didn't offer to keep them warm; she told us to eat them while they were still hot. The manager came over and didn't charge us for that meal and dessert and said sometimes things like this happen. She was just very non chalant about it; like she didn't care. We will not be patronizing this restaurant ever again and I would NOT recommend dining here.

                  My wife and I went out for a late lunch on a Sunday. We sat outside and enjoyed the beautiful view. Our waitress was great. Our drinks were delicious. I had a tasty Old Fashioned and my wife said her white sangria was the best she ever had. We started off with spinach and artichoke dip and a Cesar salad, both of which were delicious. We shared our entrees: the Hoisin Chicken and the Filet Mignon. The chicken was alright. I wouldn’t order it again but it was satisfactory. The filet was perfect, as were the sides that came with both dishes. For dessert we shared the banana bread with ice cream. One of the best desserts we ever had. The items on the menu are a bit pricey, but our meal and experience was worth every penny.

                  Beautiful views.. perfect for a summers night. Food quality is fair. Lobster roll nothing special at all.. especially for $36.00 plus tip and tax. Martinis $19-.. would not run back . The waiter Mark.. very nice. Service is quick.. all about Being outside looking at the water but not the food.

                  We were given a better table for viewing sunset that was my birthday that day. I strongly recommend not to designate a table that must be four people sitting but rather it should be given to those already reserved for a table. If it was not the manager intervenue, we were not sitting at the right table in the right area. Hope the restaurant changed its policy. By the way a table of four is not meant to spend more than two people. Simon

                  The service was poor. No bread on the table the waiter forgot. We couldn’t find the gentleman so I asked someone else to accommodate us. I girlfriend wanted something else besides carrots with her prime rib. Nothing available per our waiter. The prime rib was over cooked. My meal was ok however very small for the value. The table was still being cleaned when we were brought to our table. Couldn’t locate my server to pay my bill. The valet couldn’t locate my car. When he came back I told it was a brand new orange fury Mustang convertible parked about 20 feet from us. I’ve attended many functions at Crescent Beach Club. This was the first time I’ve every had a problem. I was very surprised by the bad service.

                  Beautiful view makes up for mediocre food. Lovely spot that makes this feel like a mini vacation. A sunset and water view in the background will take your breath away. Servers were overwhelmed on a Sat night and the menu was not too easily adapted for dietary restrictions. Go and enjoy, maybe avoid Sat night.

                  The tables on the upper deck are very tight as I was jammed in the corner. WhT I asked the server to speak to the hostess, he came back and said that she was busy and didn’t have any other table for us.

                  Fine dining with a spectacular view! Waterfront restaurant offering great seafood, casual but elegant setting overlooking the LI sound.

                  Although the view is beautiful, the outdoor seating has much to be desired , packed in table to table, had to ask patrons at another table to move their chairs so we could be seated at our table , squeezed tightly in the corner, then we had to pick our chairs up to exit the table.. not the best introduction to our first time here. Other then that and besides the view, everything else was just average.

                  We had the special lobster dinner which was excellent. The setting is the most picturesque of any restaurant on LI. The view is incredible. Our waitress was brand new, but tried very hard. Mel, the manager, was extremely helpful and did an outstanding job.

                  Great location, expensive, but I suppose you pay for the view. Limited menu, mostly the same ingredients arranged differently. It'd be better I would think if the kitchen was not shared with the catering hall.

                  I reserved on Open Table and noted special occasion... Unfortunately I would NOT recommend this location for a special occasion. It was extremely disappointing. Table was not as requested and had a very factory food feel.

                  We went for my parents anniversary and was pretty disappointed. The food it was good nothing special but they did not make our night memorable by any means. The service was so incredibly slow. The waitress did not even introduce herself and I had to ask her what the specials were because it wasn’t something that she said automatically. Not sure if service members are trained but the view you was absolutely beautiful. Food pricey. The reviews on here do NOT compare to Google. Go on Google and you will be shocked that it’s less that 4 stars. Disappointing overall but scenery is very nice.

                  Beautiful view. Great location. But the food and service was less than spectacular. Small portions. Expensive. And not super flavorful. Also very cramped on outside deck. Tables were not set up properly or spaced out enough.

                  All drinks and menu items were way over the top EXPENSIVE. Although the food was good, it arrived at the table barely warm, not hot, and the portion was incredibly small. My meal came in a sauce and when I asked for some bread was told that the don't serve bread...I couldn't believe it NO BREAD.

                  Had a great dinner at Ocean Restaurant @ Crescent Beach Club!! Had read many negative reviews, but we had no issues - food was delicious, service outstanding and atmosphere is beautiful - sat outside and got to view a wedding ceremony/cocktail hour which is very exciting since my daughter is getting married there in October. We had sushi for an appetizer that was fresh and delicious, for dinner 3 of us had Filet Mignon which was cooked perfectly and one had the Ocean burger that was truly outstanding as well as the fries!! We also had drinks and dessert, and everything was great!! Very pricey, but we enjoyed ourselves!!
