The service was top notch, from beginning to end. I highly recommend one of the seafood plateaus. I was there with my husband, and our server did a great job recommending the correct amount of food (suggested splitting the salad and the entree'). The wine list was surprisingly extensive, and well priced. I would highly recommend this place.

A rather attractive space with stellar service, it's simply difficult to rave about a restaurant where a $46 fish entree does very little to separate itself from a $25 fish entree elsewhere. The yellowfin tuna was done extremely well, but even after a $100 gift certificate, the bill came to about $210 with tax and tip (based on the original amount, not the post-GC amount), and we had a comparatively modest bottle of wine for $55. Again, nothing wrong with the restaurant..it was pretty solid, and the experience was positive, but there are multiple seafood restaurants in NYC I would choose over Oceana, and very few of them have that "corporate cookie-cutter" feel for a more upscale restaurant. For $300+, I simply want to leave happier with my overall experience.

Wonderful service and such a hospitable feeling for such a high end restaurant
Each person from hostess to server were friendly and not patronizing
The menu is varied and the highest freshness of quality in all we wondered
The tuna tartare was especially fragrant.
Our table was exactly what I requested and out server, Jorge L. Was particularly accommodating and attentive.
Nice to return again and again to such a lovely environment and extraordinary service and an chef

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.

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.
