Have been here with friends a couple of times, this time is the best as the fish was cooked exactly as I explained, fresh and tender. Strongly recommend.
Excellent food and better service. Don t miss the Grilled Spanish Octopus as starter, it s incredible.
We had such a great meal. We went during big taste and will definitely be back. I loved the lobster bisque and the pasta with scallops and jumbo shrimp was amazing!
Our server was rude. I don’t recall her name. She was a middle-aged lady. At the door she didn’t respond to my greeting. When I said that my partner was parking the car she didn’t respond and just indicated to follow her. At my table she brusquely dropped the menus and left. At that point I was ready to walk out. Then, when may partner came and sat down she saw that he was male and her attitude changed. She greeted him and treated him better than me. I had salmon with Mango salsa and my partner had veal. The salmon and the veal were boiling hot while the sides were cold. We told that to the server. The salmon was overcoocked and dry and the salsa seemed store bought. My partner had the same issue. The veal was incredibly hot while the sides as if they just came out of the fridge. The dessert was a joke. It was supposed to be ice cream sandwiches. The ice cream and the cookies appeared store bought and not fresh. At the end, the waitress made the comment that “we should pay to avoid having to wash dishes in the kitchen”. Both of us felt insulted by the comment, as it seemed to insinuate that we were not going to or unable to pay. Terrible experience and food for such location and price. The food and service where that of a cheap school cafeteria. Other servers appeared to make an effort to be polite and friendly, ours however, made us feel unwelcome and was plain rude.
A very good restaurant in Downtown Calgary. The menu is extensive and the preparation is creative and well done. The service was flawless, our server and partner in the restaurant knew her business made excellent recommendation and was attentive without being over bearing. The food was fresh and very tasty. All in all a very good dining experience. Will definitely return.
We availed ourselves of the Big Taste Calgary menu and thoroughly enjoyed all three courses. My husband had the lobster bisque and seafood linguini while I had the crab cakes and veal shank. We both had the creme brulee for dessert.
We found the service to be very good. They have a nice wine list for wines by the glass. We found a French Viognier which was a treat.
They have an outdoor patio and we plan to return when the weather improves.
Great spot for lunch. Great food.
Great service. Delicious food.
Wrong dessert served
Decaf coffee instead of lattes ordered
For any special occasions with good parking and access, I would recommend this facility to anyone that is considering a lovely evening out. Great food and excellent service.... well done Oceana Seafood Steakhouse & Bar.
Would not recommend and will not be back.
The food was well prepared and our server was informative but she seemed very busy and left us waiting for an abnormal amount of time for every step, from ordering to paying! We even had to ask another server to get the attention of ours even to pay so we could leave. Other than that I’m sure our experience could of been much better!
Great service. Good food. Nice place for dinner date. Good value. Nice place.
Oceana was excellent, the decor and ambiance is perfect for a special occasion and The food was excellent!
Good valentines dinner by the fire!
Valentine’s Day was the occasion. Was able to book a reservation using this open table app at 5:45pm for a 6pm dinner, which was fantastic! Server was Monika, beautiful woman and very knowledgeable about the food they serve. We picked her suggestions for appies and dinner. The grilled octopus 10/10; perfection. Seafood bouillabaisse was ok. And the rack of lamb was ok; just a bit over cooked.
A good friend was visiting from Regina. He wanted seafood and he was impressed with the menu selection. He said that that Oceana provided the best seafood dinner he had in 30 years. The appetizers and entree were delicious. My filet was excellent. The service was great. I liked the undergrounfmd secured parking as well. I would recommend this restaurant.
Food was great and reasonably priced. Will definitely go to again!
Absolutely amazing food best of the best
Oceana never disappoints, the seafood is always outstanding and the main course comes with a good variety of grilled vegetables and choice of potato. We went for the calamari as an appetizer and it was so tender. The owners always find time to come by to see how the evening is going. Our waitress Isabella was great as always and surprised us with an awesome tasting tiramisu birthday cake.
Great resturant. Always enjoy itvwhen we go. Great place for a special dinner.
The only complaint is the amount of cream for the coffee was 2 tablespoons. Some of us like a little bit more
We were very impressed with the service and the menu. All of our meals were excellent quality, flavor and portion. Some of the best seafood I have had in the city.
The food here is always excellent and our waitress Isabella is well versed in the menu. Their new appetizer grilled Spanish octopus is succulent and tender. My wife enjoyed the Chilean sea bass and I had the pan fried oysters.
At this restaurant, you even enjoy the vegetables which were a nice blend of Brussels sprouts, broccoli, bok choy and carrots.
You will never be disappointed here!
Definitely best fish meals in the City! So delicious and impeccable service. They make you feel like it’s a very special night and the food really couldn’t be better with fresh fish, lots of veggies - yum!
It was Tuesday and only four tables were occupied. Because of this, I felt apprehensive about the quality of the dishes; however, the all items ordered were tasty, fresh and skillfully prepared (no repugnant artsy show offs).
the only complaint I would have is the waitress never asked our group of 8 women how we wanted the bill? She assumed we wanted one which makes it difficult for some people on a tight budget when you split things evenly but not fairly.
Our guests (our daughter and son in law) very much liked the food and the quiet environment at Oceana. In fact, we all enjoyed the food and the service of our waitress. we have plans to go back in the near future. Thank you!
Great date restaurant. Nice and quiet with great ambience and food. Highly recommend.
Good: Food quality and taste, ambiance, location Service
Bad: Room temperature cold cold cold. They have blankets though! No table cloth! Desert selection poor.
This restaurant is always a hit with my family. It's great for big family get together as well as date night with my fiancé. The food is out of this world and the service is spectacular. I have some mobility issues and the staff at Oceana is absolulty always accommodating, friendly, helpful and extremely pleasent every time we come. If you haven't been you should.
Food was great, the service was great, and the price was reasonable. If I had only one minor complaint, the chairs were lacking in support, as the cushioning was breaking down. Otherwise, nothing bad to say. We'll definitely be back!
Overall food and service was quite good and will definitely be back.
As always, Voula and Nick make us feel at home, take care of our very need and treat us to wonderful food!
The food was okay, but inconsistent. We had three people order the same item but all three dishes were different. My entrée was not ready the same time as the other orders which seemed strange as three of us ordered the same meal.
We always like the seafood here. Appetizers were great, rack of lamb, sea bass were great, as were deserts.
Lovely restaurant with great food! Octopus was excellent! Service was really great!
We celebrated our engagement at the Oceana. It was incredible! The food was amazing and the staff and management couldn't have been nicer. The restaurant is beautiful with a great atmosphere. I would highly recommend the Oceana!
Great food and impeccable service! The atmosphere is fine dining with reasonable prices. I highly recommend this restaurant for almost any occasion.
Very good food, service was great. The Server was great, very attentive. An enjoyable evening!
