Thanksgiving Dinner Special Menus & Offers
Oceana in the heart of Manhattan, will be offering a traditional Thanksgiving dinner along with our featured classic dishes & raw bar from 12-9 PM ($95 prix-fixed menu; $60 twelve & under). Our recently renovated dining room will make it an even more memorable night celebrated with loved ones!
The staff at Oceana made our anniversary dinner feel like a truly special event! And after 23 years of celebrating, that really says something! Jason our waiter and Ryan our host made us feel like we were the only people in the place. Oceana has recently gone through a top-to-bottom renovation and it showed! We can't say enough about our experience and will be back again soon!
Oysters were great. Cocktail/wine was great. Seared scallops were soggy, floating in the juices from the accompanying vegetables. Dessert was unimaginative. I've been going to Oceana since their original brownstone location on the east side. This is the first time I was a bit let down.
The food was absolutely amazing!!! Highly recommend for anyone who is a seafood lover. Oysters were so fresh!! Service was outstanding!! So glad to see Oceana open again and can't wait to go back.
After six months of Covid-19 and many months of closure, it was an absolutely delight to dine inside at Oceana again. The renovation of the restaurant interior is absolutely magnificent, and I felt as if I were in Italy. The clean lines and layout make it easy to socially distance and I felt perfectly safe.
The meal and wines were spectacular, as always! I cannot wait to return.
Wonderful food,been to New York thousands of times and have never been here
We will return.
Love this place !! So happy they are open again. We sat outside though inside was now an option.
Food is always exceptional, service was wonderful
Wonderful as always
Excellent! The food, as always, was delicious. Our group of 3 for my daughter’s birthday enjoyed the Caesar salad, scallops, monkfish and lobster roll. All servers were attentive and followed COVID rules. We felt very comfortable eating outside at Oceana.
Food was tasty and service was great!!
So glad it has re-opened. Delicious food, excellent service and friendly. A midtown favorite for business and for getting together with friends. I will always be a loyal customer!
Oceana is back and better than ever. Incredible flavors with every course. The outdoor breezeway was enchanting. Incredible staff and beautiful service. Inside renovations look incredible. This is the best restaurant in midtown.
Stellar on every level as always. So good to see former favorite staff back. Outdoor dining in beautiful setting. All COVID protocols followed perfectly. Well done on the phased return!
So happy to have been able to go for outdoor dining, beautiful evening. The food as always exquisite. The service was excellent...just a great place to dine. Will be back for indoor dining as I know they’ll take the necessary and and caring precautions.
Service was inattentive and slow.
Birthday and pre theatre
Everything was excellent, not inexpensive, but really excellent
We had the best experience to celebrate.
Fresh and delicious shellfish! Wonderful service and management team!
Very good food
Great food, great service and lots of gluten free options!
Amazing! I cannot say enough good things about the new chef, Mike, and the staff. Dinner was phenomenal. Don’t walk, run to Oceana for a meal. Try as many dishes as possible. The food is fantastic. Leave room for dessert because not only are they scrumptiously delicious, the pastry chef is such a nice person. His gelatos are crazy good! We have been coming here for 28! years. This restaurant is definitely a favorite. We’ve been celebrating our daughters birthday here for the past 6 years. Can’t wait til next year!! Thank you.
Excellent food excellent service
Always a fabulous dining experience, perfect for entertaining clients - flavor, ambiance and the best service.
The entire dining experience was superb. We started with the chef's tasting of the 4 crudo options, which was so fresh and delicious with an amazing profile of tastes. The 2 fish entrees (cod and monkfish) were prepared perfectly and encompassed a sumptuous essence of flavors. Both entrees were both so tender you could cut it with a fork and it simply melted in your mouth. I look forward to the next night out at this fantastic restaurant.
First, the good news: Oceana has terrific oysters and a pasta dish called Squid Ink Paccheri that is just delicious. I truly wish it had been our whole meal. Now the bad news: Our entrees weren't up to the level of quality at this expensive $$$$ price point. The $38 Scottish Salmon wasn't bad but was a little on the fishy side, which if it was really fresh shouldn't have been. The surrounding watercress was nice and fresh, but what was supposed to have been champagne pears and blood orange was an unpleasant, oddly textured, squishy mess. The mouth feel of this turned me off the whole entree. The $45 Seared Halibut was done to a turn and would have been a lovely meal if it hadn't been for the accompanying inedible spinach and wild mushrooms which both were so salty, it made my mouth burn for the next 2 hours. The $20 Shrimp Fried Rice, an odd side dish on this menu for sure, was also overly salty and made with wild rice which was in parts under cooked, accompanied by unpleasantly iodiney shrimp; another fail. While the service was good, the waitstaff was a little on the intrusive side. Also, it's nice to know they clean their restrooms with Clorox, but alas, I returned with it all over the bottom of my shoes and while I was sitting at the table the air was perfumed with bleach. Not the best experience over all and certainly not at these prices.
Excellent spot for a business meal. Efficient and great service and great food.
Great service and food. Excellent wine list
Our server person (black female) was as good as it gets. I should have gotten her name but will seek her out next time we go. Truly exceptional.
Comfortable fine dining. Professional service, timed our courses with plenty of time to make our show. The ceviche was unique and delicious. The salad was large enough to split and the salmon special was excellent, moist, satisfying and memorable.
We ate dinner at Oceana after the show, Hamilton. Great place to unwind and discuss what for us was a very emotional experience. The service was outstanding and the fixed price show menu was excellent. All of us enjoyed our leisurely meal.... no pressure.
They did a great job of celebrating me and my good friend’s February birthday. The special dessert they gave us was delicious. And the suggested entree was so tasty.
Pedro took great care of us. Dinner was delicious as it always is at Oceana. We can't wait to return for another delicious meal.
I've dined at Oceana several times...from its former location on E. 54th street to its present home. I think the fish is the best in the City. Always wonderfully prepared. This time, I was with 3 colleagues: one had the cod and I and my third friend had the halibut. It turns out, halibut is one of my favorites; and this was prepared perfectly. Service was professional; and once our wait-person understood we were not to be rushed, he was less intrusive. Oceana is expensive; and the wine list is quite high. However, there are a handful or reasonable wines by the glass.
The portions are ridiculously small.
Out of many items on the menu on a Saturday night at only 8 pm. Alternatives were poor and prices excessive for quality and quantity.
Impeccable NY seafood restaurant for decades now. Excellent food and service. Nicely spaced tables and classy decor make this one of NYs best restaurants
Oceana was more expensive than good, but still pretty good. A waiter, though not our waiter, offered uninvited advice about what to order, but it was good advice. Some of the dishes were outstanding. Others were pretty good. All were more expensive than seemed justified.
Our steak came out cold. We sent it back to warm it up, but it was still cold. Everything was good
We purchased the pre fixe theater dinner. The lobster and steak which we shared was delicious and the service was outstanding.
