Went to see Sebastian Maniscalco @ Radio City. Oceana was extremely busy but Paul stopped by our table several times to see how we were enjoying. Treated to sweet wine after the meal, nice touch. Will see us again, thank you for an amazing experience.

We enjoyed the time and the meal. We were a bit surprised that some of the items on the menu were somewhat smaller than we would have thought. However, overall, we were pleased with the food and the service

I have been eating in Oceana since the old location. The past dinner was the worst. The space feels cold; music plays like a glorified diner. We said no alcohol for the table and the staff kept asking (2 friends are AA members). The place is worn and getting sad. Not coming back for a while.

Celebrating our 34th Wedding Anniversary. Requested a more private area and they gladly accommodated us and with two glasses of champagne! Also surprised us with a special candled cake plated with chocolate glazed "Happy Anniversary" written on it! Enjoyed every minute of our meal and with the attentive staff!

Very good food, as always. This was a return visit after many previous occasions. I had arranged a part of six. Service has always been spotty, but this time it was totally unacceptable. The waiter made insulting remarks to me. The next day I received a call from the general manager. He asked me if anyone else at the table was offended by the waiter's remarks, implying that I was wrong to feel insulted when the waiter called me stupid in front of my friends. So I will never again return to Oceana or recommend it or any other Livanos group restaurant. The customers just don't matter to them.

Pre theatre dinner. Great food, great service. They asked several times if we were going to a show. Service was still not rushed and we had a wonderful meal and time was enjoyably spent. Had dessert and still made it to the show.

Food was excellent and service was attentive without being intrusive or rushed. Tables are not crowded and ceiling is relatively high, contributing to the ambiance. I hadn't been to the restaurant before and will definitely go back. Not cheap, however.

Beautiful restaurant - bar area very crowded but our table was at the back of the dining room so very quiet.

Food was very good but overpriced. Service was avg - had to ask for salt/pepper - they ground pepper on my meal w/o offering to anyone else - had to ask 2nd time for rest of table. Had to ask for melted butter for my lobster even though another in our party received it with his meal.

This was our first tine at this Oceana but had been to the Boston restaurant a few times. The food was exquisite. I had the Nantucket scallops that were superb. My BF had the salmon which was extraordinarily prepared. The presentations for both meals was expertly done. We highly recommend this restaurant

We really enjoyed our dining experience there.
We had a porblem with one of the entrees.
Our Captain handled the problem very well; in addition the manager came over to our table to apologize.
When we ordered dessert, a second one appeared.
It was their chocolate bar. Absolutely one of the best desserts we have had in a long time. It is worth a visit just for that dessert.
Not only did the handle the problem, but they took that extra step to make sure we would leave with a good impression
Definitely, a class establishment.

We were asked if we had any time constraints and we said no. Our waitress was knowledgeable and friendly..but after our food came, it seems she disappeared. The food was really bland. It was mediocre and overpriced. We were rushed thru the meal with PLENTY of open tables. I had lobster and it was extremely boring and on the tough side. My friends had a pasta dish that was bland and another fish that was cold! We will not go back. Seems like a great bar gathering place...not a true restaurant.
