My wife and I have dined at Ocean well over a dozen times. Ocean is our favorite restaurant for a number of reasons. The beachfront views are spectacular. Outside dining overlooking the beach below is truly special and unique. Often, during the warmer months, while dining on the deck, we would see weddings below on the beach. Ocean is the public restaurant portion of the Crescent Beach Club, which hosts multiple event spaces for weddings, parties, etc.
As you drive up the long path to the restaurant, trees and lights envelope you and it really sets the tone for a special dining experience. There is valet parking and the restaurant décor creates a very nice ambience. There is a bar upstairs where you can enjoy casual dining as well.
The dishes are not expensive and my wife and I even enjoy the drive to the restaurant. Diners from the south can drive up West Shore Road, which hugs Oyster Bay Harbor and enjoy the spectacular views. My wife and I live half an hour away and we gladly make the trek to the restaurant as we know that we will always have a fantastic dining experience.
Management is exceptional. We are frequently seated by Joey or Linda Marie and we are all on a first name basis now. Service by all the staff has been impeccable. Most importantly, the food has always been fantastic. Linda Marie told us that they frequently change the menu to keep things different. The changes in the menu has certainly kept us coming back.
We are also on Ocean's email list and their emails are one of the very, very few marketing emails that I actually read. The emails help them stay in front of us and always brings us back, as we all know there are a plethora of restaurants to choose from. By far, Ocean is our favorite restaurant, any time of the year. Five stars for food, decor, atmosphere, views, service and management. Truly a hidden gem and we highly recommend dining at Ocean all year long.
Superb evening: beautiful vistas, delicious food, and attentive service. The hostess Linda Marie is particularly driven to accommodate patrons. I woujd definitely recommend for any occasion.
Service was excellent. Waiter and servers were perfect and pleasant . I wish there were more choices for the childrens menu since we were paying double the usual childrens price for the holiday, i thought the menu for them would be like ours .
Great service! Great food!
We went here for lunch and the food and service were great. The salmon was fresh and cooked to perfection. The tiramisu was light and tasted very creamy. Just what we love. The special banana dessert came out warm and the cinnamon crumbs on top were our favorite. The waitress was very accommodating and friendly. She got our special orders correct which is always quite a challenge. We will definitely go back and have already recommended to a few of our friends. A hidden gem! I can’t forget to mention what a beautiful view. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner!
This restaurant just keeps improving. You definitely enjoy a gorgeous view which is hard to find in Long Island restaurants. After the name change, I am glad to say the dining experience here is much better. This chef is amazing and everything that turned out was so tasty and fresh. The food is very very much improved. Desserts are fantastic. We’ve had problems in the past with horrible service but it seems there were some changes. The hostess couldn’t be more professional and the waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. We needed a restaurant with a nice view and I reluctantly came back here but am so glad we did because we had a very enjoyable experience. This time, I can say I will recommend it and return again!
Third time for brunch this year - as usual fantastic.
The service and food are always great! So attentive
The Ocean restaurant is usually a great place to eat, but tonight's meal was just average. My husband had steak frites, which was good, but the seafood pasta lacked seafood and taste. $ baby shrimp, 5 mussels and 3 rings of calamari is not my idea of seafood pasta. The pasta was bland and tasteless. I also heard other customers complain as well. Not a good night overall. Plus a 35 minutes wait when you have reservations just isn't acceptable!
They dinner and service at Ocean is excellent, as is their Sunday Brunch. Even in the winter the views are awesome.
Service was slow. Sat for 30 min before waiter even came over.
Delicious as always- this was during the 1/2 price special in January, so it was extra crowded and noisy. I love going to Ocean restaurant,and the value during January 1/2 is amazing! Thank you!
Another amazing dinner at Ocean!! There are not enough stars for this amazing place!! Love love!
Brunch was fabulous as always. Food and service and ambiance is great. Linda Marie and the staff were very solicitous to our requests - much appreciated. Definitely will go again.
We return often for the view of the Long Island Sound, the staff and the food. Cannot beat the value of January's special pricing. We have been to brunch 2 weeks in a row and plan to return again next week! My kids even return during the week with friends!! Love the staff, especially! Can't say enough. Great food, great value. Don't miss this tucked away gem on the water for a very welcoming dining experience!
Salmon was delicious,came with rice which was ok. French onion soup was ok, Caesar salad was very good. Dessert we had some kind of banana crumb which was aliittle too sweet and should be served with ice cream. This is the first time I was there. Was told that the view is beautiful but it was night and couldnt see anything
Ocean combines a beautiful building and location with great food and friendly, attentive staff. It’s the best of the North Shore!
Beautiful restaurant. Service was great. Food was delicious.
We return to Ocean regularly because we love the restaurant, the staff, the view and the food. There simply is no better venue if you love dining by the water and feeling welcomed.
Great food - Great service - Great views - and a few mimosas define fabulous.
As we walked out the hostess said to me a look like a very happy man - YES
This restaurant is great every time we go! Always friendly service and excellent food!
As always the food and service were great. Parking situation was a bit annoying that evening due to an event that started at 7pm which resulted in vehicles being blocked in for 30 minutes. However, the manager of Ocean went out of his way to help locate the owners of the vehicles and get them moved.
How can you beat 50% off your check in this water front restaurant till like Feb 2 wow thanks
Despite the fact that there were few patrons, the service was excellent. Food very good and a reminder that a lot of people don't go out on nasty days! I'll return.
I love Ocean restaurant. The food is always A+, view of long island sound spectacular, and the staff warm and friendly!
Excellent Brunch menu. They give you generous portions. The food is delicious!
Another fabulous meal at Ocean at the Crescent beach club!!
Always a great place to dine, even without the water view this time of year. Delicious food and beautifully plated.
always good food, great water view from any seat in or out, wait staff always friendly
Great waterfront dining. Very accommodating staff. Food excellent. Great sushi in warm weather. A favorite repeat dining restaurant.
Great experience! Great service. The steak for the steak and eggs could have been a little bigger especially when it’s $25 per person for brunch. Overall the food and ambience was great!
The food was okay, kind of expensive for what it was. Three different waiters came up to take our drink order, so the staff seemed disorganized. The setting is beautiful, right on the water with palm trees. I would return next summer for the view and the ambiance, but not just for the food.
we went for our anniversary - we were married at the Crescent Beach Club 7 years ago. We try to get back for a brunch each year. The service, atmosphere and food are still wonderful. We brought the kids this time and were able to treat them to a fun spin on French toast - Fruity Pebbles French Toast.
Ocean is the best of Bayville: beachfront dining, great food and always attentive service.
We went on a Thursday night which is lobster night. It was a 3-course lobster dinner with a glass of wine for $38 + tax and tip, I really good value.
I took my daughter there who turned 21. They made it very enjoyable and very memorable....it was a great birthday. Food was delicious and service was great. Ambiance was beautiful and we were there for sundown ...which was amazing. Joe the manager is great...he was very busy but took time to come and talk to us. Thanks for everything Joe...we will be back soon.. with husband too! Ocean is one of my favorites!!!
We got married here so this place holds special meaning to us. Unbelievable view and ambiance, food is very good, not great. However you are going there for the view and setting.
We recently came back from a trip to Barbados and it reminded us of the island.
Highly recommend for special occasions and summer nights.
Have been there several times and always very pleased with food, service and location. On this visit we were promptly seated but then we waited over 10 minutes before the waiter came to our table, introduced himself and rattled off 2 specials. No one in our party of 6 understood him. In fact I'm still not sure if the special was catfish or codfish! He was immediately ready to take food orders when we said we would like to order drinks first. One order for a very dry martini came back totally wrong...he must have told the bartender martini with double vermouth! We told him we would like a few minutes before ordering food. We were out for a leisure dinner, not "hurry and eat." I ordered edamame, ginger salad and sushi. I was tolt it all came together. I'm still not sure why. I have ordered it in many restaurants across the country and never had to have all 3 in front of me while some of my group had their appetizers. We then all had finished our drinks and appetizers and we sat waiting and waiting. The manager came over and asked if we needed anything. He went and got us cocktails/wine and had our plates cleared. Finally our dinners came and they were delicious as always. Our waiter came back and we ordered after dinner drinks. Two of the after dinner drinks, lemoncello, came back as lemon drop cocktails. Desert was fine. I am glad my group realized it was the waiter and not "Ocean," that was disappointing. He either needed better training or perhaps a different assignment.
My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. We were excited to go but had no idea what an amazing evening we were in store for. The food, the service, the atmosphere were all stellar! I would absolutely go back!!!
It's all about the view of Long Island Sound. That's it.
The waiter was good, but the overall service was unsatisfactory. The waiter was very busy and spread too thin. We waited at the table for 15-20 minutes for the waiter to just get to us and take our drink order. The food was eh... and a lot of money for what you pay. The drinks were generally tasteless. There was a wedding in progress and the dining area for us was beyond noisy. I had to yell at my wife across the table. We were sitting out on the first floor patio on a bright sunny Sunday afternoon in September. If you want to spend $200+ for some mediocre food and slow service with a beautiful view, this is the place.
