Ocean Blvd Bistro and Martini Bar, is one of our favorite restaurants in the outer banks. The food is always excellent. I don't think we have ever been disappointed in anything we have ordered. The wine list is excellent also.
Ocean Boulevard is not only THE best fine dining on the Outer Banks, it truly is on of the best restaurants worldwide. A must for foodies. The lobster bisque was loaded with lobster and had a pleasant sweet flavor. The NY Strip is always perfect and the seafood stew of mussels, clams, shrimp, mahi mahi, cabbage and Brussels sprouts was superb. The red velvet cheese cake and Guiness chocolate cake with homemade scotch vanilla ice cream were a fabulous end to the dinner. The wine list is excellent and we had a bottle of Patricia Green Cellars Pinot Noir which completed our dinner perfectly. Don’t miss an opportunity to dine here if you love gourmet cooking at its best.
Great Mardi Gras atmosphere and food! Loved the 4 dishes we ordered! All excellent!
This was our first visit to Ocean Blvd Bistro. Don't know how we managed to miss this gem during all our previous visits to the OBX. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we returned the following evening for their Mardi Gras event. We will definitely return again whenever we're in the area.
My favorite restaurant!
Best Old Fashion I have had in a long time. We also loved our salads, entrees and dessert. It was the second time we had a wonderful server. She is certainly an asset to your restaurant!!
Always good. Warm and comfortable, varied seasonal menu. Good wine list
Ate here several times and always enjoy the creative food. The chef is very good with fusion of flavors. This is highly recommended for "foodies".
Good food and good service
All was good except we barely !!!sat down the waiter rattled down the specials . It took us a few seconds what he was telling us. That did not sit well with us. In your type of Restaurant we would expect to be seated then after a few minutes being asked if we cared for a drink and when the drinks were delivered then the waiter should/could ask if we would like to hear the Specials. It felt like we were at a fast food restaurant however the food was great and the price justified
This review concerns the Ocean Blvd Bistro paired wine dinner for New Years Eve. We had been looking for a New Years Eve replacement for the paired wine dinner at Elizabeth's Cafe in Duck, since it closed two years ago. We had a great time and the food and service were excellent. Our only suggestion concerns the size of the food portions. For a five course dinner with paired wines, the food portions were too large. We suggest reducing portion size and using any budget savings to upgrade the wine. This would hopefully improve the quality of this NYE event and maintain the price-break, so it is still affordable. Overall, the best thing I can say is, "we will be back".
I went to a New Years Eve dinner with 4 friends. We were seated promptly and drink orders taken very quickly. For the occasion, the restaurant had created a 5 course dinner with a nice choice of dishes to choose from. Every course was beautifully arranged and delicious! This is my third New Years Eve dinner at Ocean Boulevard and one of my favorites every time I visit the Outer Banks! Highly recommend!
We love Ocean Boulevard. We are never disappointed. The service is always spot on. The food is creative and nicely presented. We have only once ordered something that missed the mark. It was a soup that was trying to accomplish too many things -- a spicy Thai butternut squash shrimp bisque. It had a LOT going on. It may have been more our palate than the soup itself. However, the spicy wild boar meatballs and cheddar ale made up for it! We look forward to our next visit.
Ocean Boulevard has been our favorite place to go in OBX. It was the first place we ate when we first can to OBX and we continue to go back. This time we were a little disappointed. Our server Heather was distracted and inattentive. We usually experience excellent service so this was unusual. Food was good but not quite the 5 stars we've experienced in the past. The Jerk pork shank was a disappointing, but the lamb was very good. The appetizers of wild boar meatballs was terrific as were the veal short ribs .
We will be back because it's our favorite. We go every year once or twice and usually give it 5 stars.
Our table of 5 had a great time and we all loved our meal and the service.
The food was positively wonderful. We were a group of five and everyone enjoyed there meals. Appetizers were awesome and so were the martinis, deserts also were wonderful I’m still thinking about our dining experience at ocean boulevard bistro and martini bar.
Thank you all for making our dining experience a memorable one. Will be back soon. Thanks again
Always a wonderful experience. Food is always excellent and servers are knowable and gracious. A favorite of our family for many years.
Food and food choices are always the best. Only complaint would be that we had to sit for some time before the waiter returned to fill our glasses (tea), and more than once. THat is definitely a pet peeve for me. The place was not that crowded. But after a larger party came in and they were drinking wine, appetizers, etc, which equates to a bigger tip, I think we became an afterthought to our waiter.
Delicious food and excellent service. We have never been disappointed. Ocean Boulevard has become my favorite restaurant. It is always a wonderful dining experience.
Sunday night off season is great time to go. We were celebrating 2 birthdays in our group. Mike and the kitchen staff prepared a wonderful meal, all perfectly prepared are presented.
This is our "go to" restaurant for special occasions! Have never disappointed us. The food is exceptional and the service correct. The restaurant offers a sophisticated but relaxed atmosphere. A very successful establishment that offers a superior dining experience. My wife and I highly recommend dining here.
We went here for their Thanksgiving menu and the choices all sounded amazing and everything we ordered was delicious!
Thanksgiving Made Easy
We decided to try the Thanksgiving dinner at the Ocean Blvd Bistro due to packed schedules, coming in from out-of-town for the holidays, etc. We were pleasantly surprised with the fixed price four course dinner, which included several options for each course. We went with the shrimp and grits first course, followed by a soup course, and a traditional Thanksgiving turkey course, plus dessert, a yummy chocolate mousse. Everything was excellent. Great wine list too. The portions were overwhelmingly huge, we ended up taking the main course home. Food quality was very good, service outstanding. Would definitely go back.
The food was tasty but the price was steep for turkey, yams, roasted potatoes, a salad, an appetizer and dessert. The coffee wasn't included in the $60.00+ price tag. By the time you add in bar drinks and coffee we were at $90.00 per meal with tip. I would suggest some Thanksgiving decorations as well. We eat here about 6-8 times per year and believe more could have been done to make it feel more festive, more like a holiday.
Thanksgiving Dinner was delicious! I will definitely go back again. Service was wonderful!
We always look forward to dining at Ocean Blvd. Donnie and his staff are welcoming and attentive, the menu is very tasty and the wine list is probably the finest in the Outer Banks.
Consistently great! If you enjoy good food and a great martini this is the place for you! Open year round too!
We enjoyed another great evening at Ocean Blvd. It was restaurant week and we all sampled the specials on the menu: pumpkin soup starter was excellent with a nice spice to it. The catfish and Bison meatloaf were well prepared and quite tasty. Martinis and a wonderful red wine blend were enjoyed by all. Heather and Donny continue to raise the bar with personalized service and top notch cuisine.
Food was great.
