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.

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.

We were seeing "Springsteen on Broadway" and celebrating our 33rd wedding anniversary. Oceana was the perfect way to start the evening. The food is always great and the service is first rate. Thanks for a lovely evening.

Seated promptly with a reservation pre-theater. Pre-theater menu was great with appetizer, entree and dessert for great price. Impeccable service.

We were there for dinner before seeing a play, the atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable. All the seafood dishes, from appetizer to dinner, were outstanding! I would recommend Oceana to anyone wanting the freshest seafood, cozy seating, reasonable prices and a wait staff who exceeded every expectation we had.

Not sure why this place continues to command the exorbitant prices it does. Miniscule portions + below average service should not = a $44 piece of (mini) swordfish.

our plans changed, with two of the four of us not being able to stay for long, just 30 min each...so we switched to bar seating The food was great, seafood mostly, of course, and really nice preparations and presentation. We had 7 appetizers between us, and 4 different entrées and they were all very good.

we will be going back to sit in the main dining room which looked lovely

The staff was very courteous, the sommelier was spot on with the wine selection, and the food was delicious! The chicken, the halibut, and the lobster were cooked perfectly.

It has become a tradition that we go to Oceana when we are in NYC. Great food and fantastic service,! Tried the fois gras and lobster first course! Oh my God its amazing! A bit pricey for a first course but I cant wait to get it again! Second time eating here when there was a change of shift in waiters. I dont like that at all but we did continue to get good service.

I really like the black truffle sea scallops. Its one of the best scallop I have ever had. The scallop is big and cooked just right. The sauce is creamy but not oily at all. The cocktail sauce for raw dish is interesting with a hint of wasabi. Other dishes are quite plain. I don't recommend the baked oysters or the swordfish. Their desserts need to be better presented.
For the ambience, I think they have way too many tables than necessary, and the decoration needs to be more delicate. It doesn't match the restaurant.
