With Bill Telepan, as lead chef, Oceana now consistently serves excellent food. The presentation is excellent. He really is a turnaround specialist. An excellent business lunch with generous portions.
My swordfish was over cooked and chewy.
Food and service was excellent. It was very chilly day and restaurant was a bit empty.
We arrived at a perfect time --- 6:30 pm for our scheduled reservation. It wasn't crowded or busy that's way we were puzzled why it took the waitress to attend to us in a timely manner. Sometime later, our assigned waitress informed us that she was being let go for the evening and another waiter would be assigned. But, still No one came to visit our table to see if all was good with our meal or drinks. Other than this, Oceana is a beautiful decorated restaurant including the bar and bathrooms. My entree was the Black Sea Bass with caviar ... DELISH! My date had the Grouper; it was good but not great. I will strongly consider revisiting Oceana again sometime in the future. We went when it was only 7 degrees outside....it was freezing outside and what a relief to feel a good amount of heat in Oceana.
Outstanding meal. The cold platters of seafood are absolutely divine!!!! Being from the Caribbean I am picky about fresh seafood. It was the best meal in New York by far. Great wine, festive atmosphere. I will make this my go to New York Resturant from here on out !!! Five stars!!!!
Great place to eat seafood, the food was really good and the place is nice.
Great dinning experience!!!
Nice place, Nina was a cute and very pleasant waitress but the food didn't live up to our expectations and the prices are ridiculous. Not going back and not recommending.
We were seated by the passageway of the kitchen, that killed an otherwise good experience.
We would follow Bill Telepan anywhere. His food is always superb and he's a great human being as well as a great chef. The best of his staff at Telepan have gone with him to Oceana and they and their new colleagues ensure the service is friendly and professional. We were there for a late dinner after the Radio City show. Oceana is by far the best choice in the neighborhood as well as a great choice in the City for an excellent dining experience.
Been here a couple times. Usually quite good but we went on a Friday before the holidays and it was quiet. Menu wound up being limited and service was lackluster. Food was good as usual. Just avoid pre-holiday or low times. Just not up to usual.
It must have been an off night I hope. Esp since we loved Telapan's own restaurant but:
The pasta w scungili was cold and tasteless . We were told that only 2 mackerel dishes remained before they switch to monk fish. We prefer monk fish but were told that the mackerel had to go first and the switch not possible. The deconstructed apple pie was too glutinous .
Thank goodness the lobster bolognese was as good as it was at Telapan.
Everything about our dining experience was outstanding. The service, the food, all were first class. Freshest ingredients, true fine dining service. Would definitely return.
The food and service were
Outstanding. Although I didn’t receive the swordfish that I had ordered I kept the halibut that was brought out to me. I couldn’t have been happier with my dish. It was cooked to perfection and the flavors of the fish and exotic mushrooms with sautéed spinach with garlic was pure heaven. I cannot wait to visit this restaurant again!
Visiting New York we came across Oceana, WOW. The food, wine, cocktails, everything is fabulous and delicious.
I had a late lunch here with my husband recently. I had the price fix lunch with a cider, he had a burger with fries and a beer. The best tasting part of the lunch was the French fries and the salad, which really shouldn't be the case. Within several hours he felt very sick to his stomach, so much so that he had to skip dinner that night. Something was wrong with some component of his meal. Disappointing, because it's an impressive restaurant otherwise. However, the MOST important part of any restaurant is its food.
Expensive, but terrific service without being intrusive, very good seafood, excellent wine list.
Noche de Navidad!!
Todo muy muy rico!!
The staff are amazing. This place should really have a Michelin star.
Even though I was on my own. All the staff made me very welcome.
We had a party of 18 and they indicated they would have to seat us seperately. However, it was not busy at all and we certainly could have all sat together. We had a party of 6 and 12 across the restaurant from one another. The overall experience was very nice. It is a bit more expensive than other similar places, but overall, excellent experience.
We had a very fine pre-Christmas dinner at Oceana. In fact, we agreed that this meal was the best during our five-day stay in New York. Server was friendly and helpful; did not take himself overly seriously but was serious about the food and wine.
Exceptional service, food was amazing and wait staff were very friendly, and most helpful.
Bill Telepan never disappoints. An amazing meal. What a treat! And the $49 prize fixe menu was fabulous and a great deal. If you ever need a restaurant for a special occasion, you can’t go wrong here!
Food was not exceptional- I ordered an appetizer and main course. Halibut was good but didn't taste like anything out of the ordinary given the reputation of the chef and the prices. Service felt a bit snobbish. Overall don't think I would go back in a hurry.
Really fantastic dining experience. The food was superb and they even brought our complimentary desserts for my boyfriend’s birthday. Would definitely recommend. The place is also really beautiful inside with gorgeous decor!
Dinner was superb. We arrived around 6 pm and it was very noisy. Thankfully, it was quieter as the evening went on. We will make a reservation after 8 pm the next time!
Excellent service and excellent food!
I was celebrating my birthday with my husband and was very happy with food and service. We are early diners but did not do pre-theater so thankfully they did not rush us. I decided to do two appetizers so I could sample different dishes and also not over-eat. I got the chef’s signature appetizer, the smoked trout, which was absolutely delicious! It was followed by the squash tortelloni and that too was wonderful. My husband began with the mixed green salad -very fresh in a sprightly lemon dressing. He then had the grouper special fish entree and it was done superbly. The finale was the chef’s signature celebration cake, an amazing melt-in-your-mouth profiterole-style pastry with chocolate and cream-hard to describe but delicious. My husband had the warm apple cake and it was lovely. Service was attentive but not hovering. Ambiance good - spacious setting in dining room and very lively at bar. Wines pricey but that’s NYC! We will be back!
A great restaurant. Sea food is the speciality and they do it right. Fresh and prepared perfectly. Also, a super wine list. We will go back!
Excellent food and service!!
A must in New York!! Very attentive staff willing to accommodate diners
Great food, very friendly service, perfect location for before/after theatre dining.
Everything was excellent food presentation and service .
Great food and service. Nothing more to say.
Amazing meal! I had been to Oceana once before, years ago, simply for drinks and oysters served at the bar. The dining experience was superb. For starters, we took the recommendation of the sommelier for our wine selection, and it was absolutely wonderful. At the suggestion of our waiter, I tried the Ahi Tune appetizer, and it was unlike any I'd ever had. Everything we ordered (Halibut, Scallops, Lobster, Oysters) was first rate. Waiter, sommelier and servers were all very professions and very prompt. The entire evening was most enjoyable.
Always a best-in-class experience.
In NYC for the theater and the tree - nearby to both and the food was great and the staff attentive
The food was great and the service was excellent and the proximity to Times Square was also a plus.
Good location and good environment. The overall service was slow and inattentive. The time between sitting down, drink order, drink arrival, food order and food arrival was was way too long. Also, the time between finishing our drinks and being asked if we wanted another one was way too long. The food quality for the price was not there. The food was not bad, just OK. I will not be coming back as there are many other better options for seafood nearby. It was a bust.
