Seafood wasn’t fresh... you can smell a weird smell.. felt like a frozen seafood, doesn’t worth to a $40 meal..
Steak was too salty.. meat itself was okay but doesn’t taste amazing too..
Atmosphere was okay..
Ok for everything - felt food was overpriced for what we were given especially the seating...
Wonderful views of Sail Bay. Great people watching venue. Food is excellent, fresh and tasty. Service is superb. I look forward to returning soon.
Not many menu options but the food was good. The service was excellent.
Nice location. Uninspired food. Service pleasant but slow
The food is not what was expected . Chef needs to review and update the menu. The sushi is excellent, but maybe offer a grilled fish or chicken sandwich.
Marta the hostess was very welcoming and inviting. Tom was our server that evening and he gave exceptional service. The hamachi crudo was great and the chicken Peperonata was outstanding. Thank you for a wonderful evening!
I really wanted to enjoy this dinner with my family. We were celebrating my wife birthday. We had a confirmed reservation, and when we showed up they claimed they didn’t have a rsvp under my name. Requested to be seated outside per original rsvp, the manager didn’t even acknowledge our confirmed rsvp; however, she was willing to seat another group outside who just had walked in. We were seated 45 mins after our rsvp time, we placed the order for our kids to come first as they were hungry, but, the food came 30 mins after we placed our order. Yes, they did comp. our dessert due to the bday celebration, but overall ruined the vibe for the rest of the evening.
Menu was small due to covid but the quality was good. Staff were attentive and overall, we had a good time.
We really enjoyed the ambience, the service, the food. The Passionfruit Margarita was the best!
After waiting 45 min to get an outdoor heat lamp turned on and freezing we left. Sparse, generic, overpriced menus. The manager did offer us champagne and an apology, but the damage was done and we moved on and had a good anniversary experience as herb and wood
Fantastic time and met some new friends. The restaurant worked hard to seat us somewhere warm as it was cold outside. Food was scallops and short rib main courses were great. Met some new friends who sat with us and shared a couple bottles of wine.
Venus was our server and did a fantastic job.
We sat in a romantic alcove behind a fire and ice table enjoying easy listening live music in the background. Waitstaff at tentative and helpful. Undecided on 1/2 wine night so she brought a flight to decide which to order. Dinner was brought out on hot plates and the food was delicious.
Seems like their menu has changed, likely due to COIVD, I'm hoping their previous menu returns one day. There used to be a tower of seafood - shrimp, crab, oysters, it was delicious and so yummy, but it's no longer on their menu. Albeit, I could have asked if it was still offered but opted not to since it wasn't there. Also, the mojito was made with a dark rum rather than a white rum which is a deviation from a classic mojito that I wish i had known about prior to being served it. Overall it was a great dinner, nothing that was outstanding though.
This restaurant was a nice lunch experience. The views are more obstructed than the photos make it seem and it is on a main path where you see a lot of people in and out of the hotel, but overall we had a good time. Our server was super sweet and the food was yummy! Overall, it was more casual than expected but drinks and food were good.
Good food, good prices, great location. Nice ambience on the beach
Oceana is a wonderful restaurant! Due to Covid you are seated outside only and we had a booth for the three of us, which made for a very quiet lunch amenable to good conversation! Of course we still had the advantage of a wonderful view of the bay.
We had lunch and our selections -- sushi, flatbread and tomato soup -- were superb.
I will be delighted when they reopen indoor dining. They have a spectacular jellyfish tank in the middle of the restaurant. Currently the jellyfish are being carried for elsewhere as no one is in the restaurant (SeaWorld has been a wonderful partner).
I have had brunch, lunch and dinner here. All spectacular!
Have not eaten in a restaurant for months. Their patio area was big and warm with their heaters. Food was good
The food is delicious however be prepared to be price gauged. $14 glasses of wine...$15 for a shot of borboun..paying more for a resort restaurant is expected but this place is outrageous.
A seafood place with no seafood entree. Disappointing
People and their service is amazing.
Thank you for dining with us! We know that our staff will appreciate your recognition of their service. From all of us here at Oceana Coastal Kitchen, thank you and see you again soon!
Really poor quality food and setup
Perfect Valentine's Dinner for two, with amazing views and service
Wow! This place is amazing, not just the food but the service was 10 stars
It was our pleasure to have you here with us at the Catamaran's signature restaurant Oceana Coastal Kitchen. We appreciate your kind words and hope to welcome you back again soon!
Great weather for outdoor dining. Great location.
Very crowded on a Sunday lunch. Got put at the corner without a view even with a reservation.
We love impressing our guests and truly sorry to hear that you experienced otherwise. We have shared your feedback with management. We hope that you choose to dine with us again in the near future, and when you do, please note that you would like a bayview as we do our best accommodate special requests.
Food and service were top notch as usual. Great view and the Covid protocols were carefully and thoughtfully carried out, making us feel very comfortable. Do yourselves a favor and check this place out. Whether a date night, or fun with friends and family, Oceana will not disappoint!
Thank you for joining us for our opening weekend of offering outdoor dining! We appreciate your kind words and love hearing how impressed you were with the sweeping views of Mission Bay. We hope to see you again soon!
Beautiful patio seating right next to Mission Bay. Great Sunday brunch spot!
Thank you for joining us! We're glad you enjoyed your bayfront dining experience and hope to welcome you back again soon!
Food was excellent and there was great customer service! We will definitely be back!
We didn’t realize this was a hotel until we got there. I guess I didn’t look to much into it. However the beach view was very enjoyable. The food was worth the cost! Overall a good experience.
The food was delicious! Excellent customer service!!
Monday & Tuesday Happy Hour with $10 cocktails, sushi, and flatbreads made for a great Tuesday night date!
The outdoor seating has a gorgeous view. The food is perfect. I like Sunday brunch the best. Great service with a beautiful ambience.
Great if you are staying at the hotel. But too loud for a date night as they were playing a movie for kids staying at the hotel not too far away. Food is very good though. Just not an atmosphere for adults night out.
My favorite place for Sunday brunch! Always friendly staff and yummy food!
Thank you for joining us for Sunday Brunch here at Oceana Coastal Kitchen! We appreciate your kind words and look forward to welcoming you back again soon!
Great dining experience for me and my wife, we went to celebrate our 11th anniversary, food was amazing! friendly staff and fair prices.
Thank you for joining us for such a special occasion! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your dining experience and hope to welcome you back for future celebrations to come!
It was a great stay. Me and my boyfriend enjoyed the resort but I hope they reduce the fee for the resort coz not all of their facilities are open but I understand why because of this new normal that we have.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are delighted to hear that you had a wonderful stay here at the Catamaran. We appreciate your feedback and have shared it with management. We hope to welcome you back again in the near future.
Amazing beautiful great food
Thank you for sharing your dining experience with us. We hope to welcome you back again soon!
We love the outdoor live guitar/singer at dinner, he was amazing. The view is the best. The beach theme, the outdoor dining, the people riding, biking, jogging, dog walking, etc. is really nice. Service is always great when we arrive. They did forget our free dessert with the kids meal two separate times but everything else was great.
Thank you for joining us at the Catamaran's signature restaurant Oceana Coastal Kitchen. We have live music every Wednesday and Sunday! We hope you join us again soon!
I would recommend this restaurant if you want ambience.
