    Not worth the money. Everything needed seasoning and flavor. The seafood bisque lacked. The lobster scampi lacked butter and garlic. I wish I would’ve chosen a different dinner option before our Broadway show.

    I had high hopes for this place. Unfortunately it did not live up to expectations. The ambiance and plating was beautiful, however all the food was very flat flavors. We had the truffle ricotta ravioli and the sea bass with crab ciopinno. The ravioli had Visible truffles, but ZERO truffle flavor. The whole dish didn’t have much flavor at all. The sea bass was good but was a very tiny piece. The mussels and clams were ok but nothing special. At the end of the day it was a $200 bill and still left not full. We ended up walking around and stopped in at a Cuban restaurant which blew Oceana away with the drinks. I really wanted to like Oceana but will definitely not be back.

    I wanted a place that would make a birthday celebration special; Oceana was an ideal choice. A seamless experience from beginning to end. We both could not stop talking about the meal and the service. Tens across the board!

    Our party of three had a wonderful dinner here before heading off to see Wicked. This is great location for a pre-theater dinner and a special evening. My pulpo appetizer and swordfish were excellent, and my dates’ Scottish salmon and cippino were equally great. It is quite expensive even by NYC standards but as a splurge you won’t go wrong. The portions are also a bit puny, but the presentation is excellent. With a drink but no dessert we were well above $100 pp so be prepared.

    Pre-theater dinner was excellent and reasonably priced. As the large space of the restaurant filled, the noise level increased to an uncomfortable level. Otherwise, overall excellent!

    We chose this restaurant for its location and reviews. When we entered, we were overwhelmed by the noise and asked for a quieter spot. Impossible, as it turned out. The whole place is horribly noisy. Luckily, the service was quick and courteous. We had delicious oysters and lovely drinks. The seafood entrees were split…his was great, mine was so so. After we ordered dessert, the waiter belated offered a generous birthday cake for me. Great!

    Wow. On a trip from NZ I booked Oceana online for our 28th wedding anniversary. We were blown away by the food, the service and ambience. Aldy our waiter was extremely good. Excellent observation of food allergies, very fast efficient service. We even had a complimentary custom designed desert to celebrate our day. Way beyond our expectations, we will certainly be back. Thankyou.

    We've always liked eating here, but this time the menu was much more expensive than ever before, and the waiter who served us was not always attentive to our order. The prices here went up like a rocket, despite not having a well-known chef, compared to other restaurants nearby with reputable chefs attached. Would I come back? I don't think so. Also, the waiter neglected to serve a dish we had ordered, and he didn't return to the table often when we had questions or interest in more. He seemed overwhelmed with the job, actually.

    Had not been here in quite some time and decided to celebrate our 55th here. We were led to an excellent table by a welcoming staff. After that, our waiter, Isaiah, just seemed to go through the motions being pleasant when he came to the table but the intervals were quite long especially at the beginning in starting things off properly. Aside from the lack of attention from such a fine establishment, everything else was superb. Our pre-fixe theater menu was excellent with great choices, presentation, fine taste and more than ample portions supplemented by extra oysters and glasses of prosecco. And the addition of a mini mousse cake with a candle atop and an appropriate inscription was a much appreciated bonus.

    My family enjoyed both Pre- Theater and regular menu before a Saturday night show at a busy time of year. The treatment, noise level ,and size of table were an oasis right off of Times Square. All of the servers were pleasant , knowledgeable and engaging. Food and wine memorable, I would definitely revisit

    The crab cake was very good but my main salmon dish was lacking tremendously in flavor -not sure if the purée under the salmon was celery root or other but it was very bland-as was the mixed green salad. The ricotta & black truffle ravioli was tasteless as well. Not a great value for the prices. Disappointing.

    While the food was good, the main server who took our order was clueless, as if she’d never read the menu. I pointed things out to her, she was surprised. The back waiter was informed and responsive. There was a huge delay between courses. The manager made an excuse. We’ve dined here several times - it’s gone downhill.
