Under the guidance of the Livanos family and Paul McLaughlin, Oceana has provided New Yorkers with an exceptional seafood destination since 1992. Recently hired Chef Bill Telepan has instituted an entirely new menu with a twist on modern seafood classics!

Oceana's a la carte menu, coupled with its convenient Midtown location, make it a perfect spot for a quick business lunch or pre-theater dinner. From the spectacular marble bar to the fresh lobsters and whole fish cooked to order, as well as a significant selection of prime meats, Oceana delivers a fresh, innovative and approachable menu.
Oceana has a 70 seat Cafe with a 18 seat marble bar. Great for lunch, after work cocktails & snacks, pre-theater dinner and post-theater desserts. Spring and Summer bring a 50 seat outdoor dining area, private dining options include our Chef's table for 4, Wine Room for 18, and our Grand Salon for 80.

Everything was great but the service. Our waiter was inattentive and bordered on rude and still had the gall to try to give himself a 40% gratuity when the bill cane

I wanted to take my visiting cousin somewhere special on his first night in New York. I love Chef Bill Telepan’s food, so that was the draw. Our dinner was fantastic, so tender and fresh, and such interesting combinations of tastes. Our server was efficient and extremely pleasant. We had a wonderful time.

Food and drink were good. What was strange is that we had 4 different waiters as our 7:30pm reservation overlapped the waiters shift change. For an expensive restaurant, I would have expected to keep the same waiter throughout to ensure high quality continuous service - I felt it cheapened the overall experience. For that, I will withhold a star.

Pedro G our server was prompt and professional in a friendly way. Salads were huge. My husband loved the house poached tuna on the nicoise. The lobster cobb salad was really well balanced if not decadent.

February 10, 2018. Birthday Dinner
This was our first time dining at Oceana. Our experience exceeded expectations with appetizers, amazing entrees,
and a delightful dessert. Our service staff was professional, friendly and subtle. We enjoyed a relaxing dinner, with personal service attention and never feeling rushed.
We are looking forward to returning to Oceana in the near future.

Fantastic food and service! My husband and I came here for a combination birthday and anniversary dinner. They were very attentive and made sure my dinner was safe given my gluten issues and shellfish allergy. The food was incredible too. I highly recommend.

Oceana is one of my favorites. Great seafood, with plenty of choices. I think they recently expanded the list of appetizers or starters. Very friendly, attentive service in an elegant, not overstated, stuffy venue.
Went before a show on Saturday night and had no problem timewise.
Pedro is a gem.
