It was fabulous, and we loved the table by the window. Our server was very friendly, but hard to find. We will be back.
Exceptional experience - we’ve dined here many times and have always had a wonderful time. Attentive and friendly staff, delicious and creative food, and a beautiful setting.
My daughter and I had a fabulous meal and experience at Ocean. We were commemorating my Mom's birthday as well as the close of a successful semester and start of a new job! It was perfect. The wine we selected with the help of our waiter, Steven, was the perfect accompaniment to our fowl and fin starters and entrees. And the desserts are not to be missed. We will be back!
Great special occasion restaurant: service was terrific, quality of meal and presentation very excellent.
Superior food and great service. Will be back next time we are in the area.
Good menu options. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Large table with a party of 10 (celebrating a birthday) was a little loud and took away from the usual excellent fine dining atmosphere.
wonderful setting, great food, good seafood choices
Ocean is a very classic and beautiful Maine coastal restaurant, outstanding view of the water and such a beautiful dining room. The service was impeccable, the food was outstanding, we could not be happier with our experience.
We were there to celebrate my husband's birthday, and the staff acknowledged the occasion in a most thoughtful and discreet way (a complimentary glass of bubbly to start the meal, "happy birthday" written in chocolate on the plate of the dessert we ordered). Our meals were delicious, the service was outstanding, and the ambiance was delightful--there was a howling rain storm outside that night, but we were cozy and warm inside, and felt very well cared for. Ocean is a wonderful special-occasion place--or a great choice when you simply want a truly fine meal and superb service.
Fantastic service staff and excellent meal. Nice variety in menu
Beautiful room. Thoughtful service. Food is good and fresh. Sauce for fish was very salty but nice depth of flavor.
One of the best dining experiences I've had in a long time.
Dinner at Ocean is always a special part of our Kennebunkport trips.
Great meal - have wanted to try this place and definitely glad I did! You can't go wrong with the Lobster Termador appetizer!
Ocean Restaurant overlooks the ocean, and the view was amazing even on a rainy October night. There is a very good wine list as well as options of by-the-glass wines.
I had the duck which was excellent, and it was served beautifully. My friend ordered the venizon, and she was very impressed with the presentation and the preparation of the food.
The service was up to expectations for a restaurant of this quality. The cost is higher, but the food, service, and ambiance make it well worth the cost.
I look forward to eating at Ocean in the future.
One of my favorite restaurants—if not my favorite!
Excellent food, our waiter was very engaging and all the staff very attentive to our needs throughout the entire experience. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a fantastic meal with romantic ambiance.
Very nice elegant restaurant-good crowd on a wed. night-food was excellent-good attentive service
The food and service were great. It was a perfect way to celebrate a birthday.
An incredible 5 star evening of dining. Cocktails, perfect. Starters, amazing. My entree of duck and my wife's lobster dish were so good, I think we'd order them again when we return. Decided to skip dessert since we were satisfied; however, next time we'll save room.
Very enjoyable, try to visit each year when we are in the area.
Anniversary with Janice and Erik making it extra special!!
Food was absolutely delicious and service impeccable !
Outstanding food. The green salad was one of the best I have ever eaten...perfectly dressed with a lavendar honey vinegarette. The duck was extremely flavorful with a balsamic reduction that was a wonderful complement.
Nicest dining experience in Kennebunkport.
Excellent service from our server Maryanne. Greeted with complimentary sparkling wine to honor our anniversary. Very nice touch. I had the swordfish, excellent preparation, fish very moist. My husband enjoyed his duck prepared two ways, as well.
Also enjoyed field of greens and soup as starters and chocolate hazelnut dessert as well only criticism is that my Rose could have been colder. Definitely a special occasion restaurant!
Lovely dinner for our anniversary but took a few requests before we were served with a drink which would have been 2 if we were served better. Obviously quite a few regulars but surely a new comer should get the same service. Once at the table the service was better and the food lovely. Just should have worn some trousers and boots as I was a bit cold.
Great service, awesome food. We are staying right here at Cape Arundel Inn, so it was the perfect end to a day on the porch soaking up the view and all of the fresh air.
Drinks at the bar were generous pours but not inexpensive.
Great food. The Monkfish and oysters perfect . Duck one of the best I have had. Duck fois gras must try..service the best.
Love the updated interior of restaurant. Such an amazing location. Asked for quiet table and was nicely accommodated. Wait staff very attentive. Food outstanding. Would recommend-return on our next visit.
The views were amazing, food was great and service was excellent. Highly recommend
Excellent food and excellent service!! Would recommend to anyone and everyone as the Go to Restaurant in that area! Looking forward to another visit when we are in town! Thank you!
This was one of the best dining experiences I’ve ever had, hands down. It was my friends birthday and the staff went out of their way to start us off with champagne and even reserved us a special table. The food, the ambiance, and the service were exceptional. Jess, our server, was sweet, attentive, and made us feel at home. The restaurant manager was equally as pleasant and we never once felt rushed. I can’t wait to come back! Thank you for a spectacular evening!
We were seated at after 8pm so didn't get to enjoy the ocean view. Regardless, the dining room is beautiful so provides a very pleasant atmosphere. Food and service were excellent, we were very pleased with the experience.
We were greeted with a taste of champagne, followed by a fabulous lobster dinner. The pastry chef baked a gorgeous chocolate cake with chocolate ganache and fresh strawberries. It was a memorable birthday celebration!
Stunning views of coast. Service was perfect and the food was outstanding (we both had the lobster). Great spot for a special dinner!
Our experience with cocktails in the front room next to the dining room was lovely. Our table overlooked the Atlantic and a cozy fireplace graced the opposite wall. Cocktails were imaginative, but price seemed excessive. From the appetizer we shared (lobster caprese) to the swordfish with tasty accompaniments to the espresso semi fredo dessert, our food was excellent - delicious and beautifully presented. The service was also excellent and very attentive. Unfortunately, before our entrees arrived, a group of 18 (!) people was seated next to us. The ambiance deteriorated to that of an army mess hall. It was an effort to have a conversation, as the noise was so loud (not "energetic", but annoying). Although the staff gave us our dessert on the house, it ultimately did not do much to make up for the poor experience. - We also spent that night at the Cape Arundel Inn, and breakfast the next morning in the Ocean dining room was disappointing...3 very basic choices of hot food (eggs, waffles, pancakes), and a buffet table featuring a toaster ("make your own toast", English muffins), butter, jam, one choice of juice (orange and not fresh squeezed), a plate with individual grapes/some orange and pineapple wedges, two "towers" of dry cereal, and a few pastries. Hampton Inns offer a much more generous breakfast. For the prices the inn charges, we expected a more than "ho-hum" breakfast - not to mention something more than paper napkins at our place setting.
Wow. Ocean view spectacular. We had near full moon, lit up the ocean. Service great. We had the lobster, unusual phyllo wrapped risotto, also unique and special. Dessert included crime brûlée with mango sorbet, delicious. Truly memorable night!!
Eric the server was great. Professional, attentive, funny, did a fantastic job. I had the scallops app and then the lobster dinner, food was outstanding. This reminded us why this is our favorite place for any occasion. Can't wait to go back.
