    First time eating at Ocean Blvd Bistro and Martini Bar and was thoroughly impressed. Not a picky eater by any means but was curious how my experience would end up as the menu contained quite a few things that are not usually on the menus at my usual stops. Our waiter, Juan Carlos, was awesome at answering questions and taking care of us. Couldn't have asked for a better server. I settled on a swordfish dish while my wife decided on a baked chicken and pasta dish. Both were fantastic! After some wine for the wife, and martinis for myself, we topped it off with a macadamia tart and caramel ice cream which was fantastic. Will definitely be visiting them next time we are in OBX.

    Ocean Boulevard remains the standard for fine dining in the Outer Banks. The atmosphere is difficult to match and the proprietors run an incredible show. Waiting staff and bartenders are phenomenal, the food is outstanding, and they offer private dining for large groups upstairs. Wine selection is well above average in the OBX and, if you ask, they have French wines not listed. The cocktails are well documented as the best around, but I would note the staff's professionalism is also unparalleled. I think adding an espresso option would be a wonderful addition, but we will call that a champagne problem. Speaking of, if you're entertaining a large group, they are willing to accommodate specific requests. If I had to pick a favorite dish, I'd gravitate toward the duck breast or lamb.

    Ocean Blvd never disappoints us - ever. The food is excellent with bountiful portions. They begin dinner with warm homemade bread and butter. The staff are extraordinary. They chat as they can and they know us and attend to us as VIPS each and every time we dine their. The desserts are just the best: Original and creatively prepared! I watch my waist but never forfeit the dessert because they are simply the best!!

    I was looking for a fine dining restaurant for my fiancé’s birthday and I hit the jackpot with Ocean Blvd Bistro and Martini Bar. We had reservations and were seated promptly upon arrival. We were pleased with the charming ambience and Christmas decor. Our server was very attentive and the food was outstanding! This was our first visit but definitely won’t be the last! If you’re looking for a delicious culinary experience at OBX, look no further than Ocean Blvd Bistro and Martini Bar!

    We come down to OBX at least once per year and we NEVER miss a dinner at Ocean Boulevard. Last night we were lucky to be seated at the chef’s window. We could watch them prepare every meal and questions were sincerely accepted. We were a group of four. Two had the NY Strip, one had the scallops, and I had the salmon. The chefs are truly artists. Watching them create these unbelievably delicious meals is such a treat. The kitchen group talks to you as much as they can and answer any questions you might have. You never want for anything. They definitely take good care of you. The atmosphere is comfortably chic. I recommend either the Rosy Cheeks or the Hot and Dirty (spicy) martinis. Don’t miss this culinary treasure.
