The Ocean Room is known as a go to place for sushi and seafood lovers. The restaurant has a nicely decorated interior. On the inside, the place has a bright and contemporary feel to it. Diners are able to look at the exhibition style kitchen, the handmade sushi presentation and the oyster display. The dishes on the menu at The Ocean Room are created to capture the true essence of the locally available fresh sea food.
Offering parking facilities and catering for special occasions, the menu at The Ocean Room has a unique mix of flavors. The menu selection includes Ahi Poke, Surf and Turf and multiple sushi varieties.
I went to Ocean on a Saturday evening when visiting San Diego because my son wanted sushi and my daughter seafood pasta. The sushi was quite good and reasonably priced. There was a very long wait, although the restaurant had warned us that it was due to the large party, which looked like to be form the Convention Center. The seafood pasta was okay.
Well my reservations was made for 10pm on Friday, June 1, 2016 but when we arrived they told us they were closing at 10pm and it clearly states on the window or door that they close at 12 midnight. So my first experience was not great at all. Would not consider recommendations to anyone for this place if they can't honor a simple family reservation without good reason other than we're closing at an hour not posted!!
My Boyfriend and I went the day before valentines Day and almost no one was there. The food was Delicious and so were the martinis. It was a very easy going night, not too much noise. However parking was a nightmare, But it is the gas lamp district so we were expecting it.
The sushi here is great, especially the Spicy Tuna Roll. The sushi chef and the waitstaff are personable and efficient. You can't find a better happy hour. The outdoor seating is preferred to the indoor seating. The inside is clean but tired and sadly drab.
I have to compliment the hostess, the wait-person, even the busboy! Every individual added to the enjoyment of some amazingly good seafood. Next visit, I'm going for Happy Hour - the specials look great!
