We always have a delicious meal at Oceana. Chef Bill Telepan is in the kitchen and makes sure that every dish is as beautiful as it is delicious. One of our favorites.

Oceans never disappoints. I have been several times and they always knock it out of the park. It can get a little pricey depending on how you order-but this time we were going to a show and did they’re-theatre price -fixed menu which was delicious and a good value as well! The restaurant is stunning,airy and spacious and the service always Attentive!

Went to celebrate the New Year at Oceana. Was pleasantly surprised as it was even better than I expected. The food was amazing, we were suggested to try the chef’s tasting option (4 appetizers - all delicious) and had the Bass and the Lobster spaghettini for the main.
The restaurant offered a special selection of wines for the holiday, which was nice. In addition, the service was warm and welcoming. We will definitely be back!

The sea bass my fiancée ordered was excellent , my linguini and clams not so much and I thought a little pricey. But what made our dining experience an excellent one was the wait staff and particularly our waiter George. I’ve been to some very nice restaurants and have been well taken care of but we felt George was perfect for us, professional , polite , attentative , answered all our questions about the menu, and just a very nice way about him , thank you George

My wife and I had an enjoyable dinner at Oceana after attending the Christmas Spectacular performance at Radio City Music Hall. We started with a seafood tower which was very good. It was the smallest one on the menu but was adequate for two. For our entrees, my wife had the scallops which were very large and she claimed were very good. I had the maui-maui and it was excellent. We also enjoyed a very good bottle of wine from Austria. The service was excellent.

Cannot recommend this restaurant enough! The restaurant/decor: beautiful, classy, open but not loud. Service: impeccable! Wait staff was knowledgeable and kind. Food: delicious, ample portions, delivered in a timely manner. We ordered off of the prix fixe theater menu which was an amazing deal. Full-portions, 3 courses for only $45. We did not feel rushed and lingered over coffee and dessert before making our 8 PM curtain around the corner. I will definitely be back!

Our family had Christmas Eve dinner at the Oceana and we all had a wonderful time. The sea food tower as an appetizer for 6 adults was fabulous. Everyone ordered a different entree and they were all delicious. Service was great and even the children had a good time. We would definitely return to this restaurant in the future.
