Great food and good service
Top notch ambiance, food and service. High quality restaurant
Past visits to Oceana have been very enjoyable. They had an excellent chef (Bill Telepan), an interesting menu, and a more peaceful ambiance. The new iteration is very disappointing. The food was mediocre at best and the new decor seems designed to increase the noise level. When we arrived, the place was extremely noisy. The service was less than attentive, which was understandable at first because the restaurant was crowded when we arrived, but service did not improve when the place emptied out. The menu is limited, so there is less excuse for the poor food quality and execution than there would be in a place that offered more options. And it's very overpriced.
Our service experience was exceptional thanks to Yaro the sommelier. He recommended a great wine that both my wife and I enjoyed very much, he was gracious and genuine. Our foods were all excellent including desserts. Thank you Yaro!
Delighted to find this restaurant open and on top of its game. Starting off with a Caesar salad made the way seafood lovers (or any true fan of anchovies) would expect, the entree selections of the salmon and branzino were plated with flair, and the flavors matched the presentation. Throw in a side order of zucchini, also enhanced with delicious add-ons, and you have a complete meal. The wine selection is extensive and there are good values at various price levels. As for dessert, the brownie was a fine cap to a stellar evening. The wait staff was attentive and quick to offer help or suggestions.
I’d not been there in years snd so glad we went for dinner. My martini(s) were perfect. The Halibut ceviche was amazing as was the grilled halibut, beet salad and risotto. Lovely staff and the remodeled space was beautiful! Def going again in the near future!!!
Everyone had a smile and were quick to serve. The waiters, bartenders were all spectacular.
The service was exceedingly slow. I am sorry we bothered our server by dining there. He must have other customers who merit his attention.
Food was very average and the fries were soggy. Service hit and miss. Many better options out there
Very nice place to eat and hang out. Excellent service staff and ambiance. Everyone there was extremely nice and helpful. The food was excellent!
a good friend and i just had a delicious lunch at oceana. although we were initially disappointed to learn that bill telepan is no longer the chef there we found that the new chefs are definitely up to the job. we both had branzino which was terrific and i had the tuna crudo and my friend the halibut seviche to begin with. we ended with the cheese plate. elegant. the place is pricey, but it is a wonderful experience.
everything on the menu is top tier. the staff was very attentive and accommodating. love the vibes here . worth the price.
Like oysters and it’s other seafood.
Excellent food, top notch staff, beautiful place. Food is expensive. Worth it for a special occasion or if you can afford to. I and my friends enjoyed ourselves
We chose Oceana for pre-theater dinner as part of a birthday celebration. It was wonderful to be back in a restaurant (fully vaccinated) and everything about dinner — from the friendly and efficient service to the delicious food — exceeded expectations. A spicy melon gazpacho with shrimp was outstanding, as were the oysters. Branzino with delicately sliced zucchini and salmon with fried polenta mains were equally high quality. Pricey but not crazy for NYC. Will definitely go back!
It was our 1st rtn-to-work group lunch and we wanted lobster rolls. It was disappointing. Some lobster mixture sat on top of a roll. Extra charge for fries. Underwhelming for $42 with tax and tip.
Great food and extra friendly service.
Excellent food!!! Pleasant service…..lovely interior
We haven’t been back since the renovation. The restaurant looks fantastic. We had the roasted beet carpaccio, salmon tartare toast, the lobster linguine and the roasted chicken. The food was divine. Very warm and welcoming staff. Can’t wait to return.
I love Oceana. They never disappoint. Had the halibut entree, which was excellent, preceded by a delicious striped bass crudo, but first--the oysters! Served perfectly chilled on a bed of ice, we shared an assortment of two dozen of them, which in truth was about two dozen too few. The Grgich Hills Sauvignon Blanc was a wonderful, and reasonably priced, complement to the meal.
So wonderful to have Oceana open again. The food is as amazing as ever. My beet salad, monkfish and lemon meringue parfait were all delicious. The service was outstanding and the dining room is so lovely. I can't wait to go back.
Meets the high expectations one should have for this quality establishment.
We enjoyed the food, the friendly service and all the experience. We will be back.
Midtown is often the home to large restaurant chains but Oceana was a fantastic find. I would highly recommend for any occasion.
This is a wonderful restaurant. The service is exceptional. They brought me a free birthday dessert too!
We came to celebrate the end of the school year with our kids and wanted some place special and different from our usual restaurants. The service was great and the food excellent.
As always, Oceana did not disappoint.
It's always a little noisy, but what else do you expect from a popular midtown restaurant.
But, the food and exceptional service always shine through and make it a worthwhile experience.
Fresh and delicious seafood, expertly prepared. Courteous, efficient service.
Really nice and clean. Service is great. Definitely a good place to go for a special ocassion. I noticed that they had a private dining room if one waas trying to have a party and have their own space. There is also another side that is more of a bar lounge.
Excellent seafood. Artistically presented and creatively seasoned. Halibut ceviche was wonderful. The beet salad was a revelation with each ingredient truly standing out on its own, yet coming together to form a beautiful combined dish. Lobster pasta was wonderful with each strand of pasta expressing genuine lobster flavor. Only slight disappointment was the crabcakes which were a bit dense and fairly pedestrian. Room is splendid and service was excellent.
Great as usual!!
Drinks were good! Food was not. All food came out cold. One meal, so salty that it was sent back. Atmosphere extremely loud with poor spacing of tables and chairs.
Great food and extra friendly service.
Amazing food. Not bad price. Sample pretty much the entire menu
My, restaurants have gotten really expensive post-pandemic! Over $100 (with tip) for two appetizers and two glasses of wine. It's delicious as ever, but designed for expense accounts.
This is a wonderful spot for lunch. The three course lunch is delicious and cost effective. We sat for three hours in this beautiful restaurant and no one rushed us.
Not the value I'd expect with my own money, but perfect for a business lunch. Impeccable service.
A fairly spacious restaurant and layout in midtown Manhattan. Perfect for a business meal or everyday dining with friends and family.
