Beautiful place to dine in every way. The service, food, music and ambiance were top notch. I am a vegan and I was very pleased with the options available.
We went for our anniversary and it was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was delicious. We tried the four course option which allows you to get a bit of every part of the menu and everything we tried was great. Would highly recommend and we will be coming back again soon.
Absolutely amazing food and service! Cannot wait to go back. My only suggestion if you go and its before 8 pm to get the 4 course chef special. The portions are a little bit on the smaller side so with that you get an apetizer,pasta,main and dessert so you will leave full as long as you have the 4 courses!
Amazing service from staff who are attentive, courteous, and knowledgeable about the menu.
The food was delicate and delicious!
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Oceana for thanksgiving this year. I was hoping since this was a larger midtown restaurant that there would be proper distance between tables and I was correct, most tables are more than 10 feet apart. There service was wonderful and food was great. We will be dining here again. Its one of the few place I feel complete comfortable dining indoors during the Covid crisis.
We sat outside for their pre fixe Thanksgiving meal around 3:30 pm. We booked it the night before since we canceled our Thanksgiving travel plans to fly home to our families. I’m always a little weary of prefixe menus as I’ve had some negative experiences, however our meals were out-of-this-world delicious. Every.Single.Bite. It was seafood with a fall twist and we were hooked and wishing for larger stomachs by the end of it 😅 Thank you Oceana for the most fantastic food which was a bright light during a pandemic Thanksgiving.
Excellent restaurant that I would highly recommend to everyone
As always, Oceana never disappoints. The food was exquisite. Go for the Filet Mignon if you are a meat eater or the Monkfish if you prefer fish. Anything and everything on the menu is delicious. One of our top three NYC restaurants. Excellent wine list as well. The decor and ambiance are true NYC and timeless. Warm and spacious. Service is always excellent! Helpful and courteous servers. Recommend highly!!
The $35/person Three Course Lunch is such a good deal and definitely worth it. The food was delicious, and I can’t wait to go back to try the other dishes.
Number 1 and most importantly, the food and service was amazing. From the wine, apps, entrees and desert... it was so delicious and rich tasting. The staff was so friendly and respectful, I couldn’t have asked for better service. Given that it’s COVID mid-November in NYC, I really didn’t want to eat outside, however, also a little hesitant to sit inside. But our reservations were at 6 and I quickly had zero hesitation when I saw the restaurant was empty when we got there. And as more people came the staff did a great job spacing everyone out. Oceana has a fairly large space, especially for NYC, and I felt completely safe eating inside. It’s probably “less safe” going to the grocery store than eating inside at a place like Oceana. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Food was quality and they spaced it out very well. Drinks were amazing nice and strong . Will definitely go back !
My overall experience is good given the service and food. It could have been better the the setup outside been better. The separating post should enclose the seating area to avoid outsiders from coming in while guest are dinning. There should only be one opening not two. Someone asked for money while we were sitting and UPS guys wheeled in a delivery while I was trying to have lunch with a client. Hope staff noticed and improved the set up.
Everything excellent! Thanks. Should offer more desserts options.
Great service at lunch!
One of the best restaurants in NY
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.
