Oceana Ratings and Reviews
We decided to eat in the cafe and glad we did. Management was super accommodating and got us a table during a very busy time. We had the salmon burger and a lobster roll which was the best we had outside of Maine! Restaurant is beautifully decorated for the holidays, sit back enjoyable glass of wine and take it all in. Thank you for a great experience!
It was well staffed and the knowledge of the food and drink by the staff was outstanding. The staff was wonderful but they were only the dressing to the food which was as good if not better than my wife and I can do at home. This tends to be the meter to which we recommend a restaurant and this one passed with flying colors. Enjoy!!
We waited 30min just for someone to take our drink order. Everything I ordered they were "out of"...I had to refill my own water glass. Our food took 50min to arrive. With how expensive it all was I would never recommend this restaurant to anyone I know. I would have been more satisfied with Mc Donald's in Times Square or a hot dog from a food cart.
FRIENDLY, WARM STAFF. WE ARRIVED EARLY AND WERE SEATED EARLY ON A FRIDAY EVENING IN EARLY DECEMBER DESPITE A NEARLY FULL HOUSE. FANTASTIC HOSTESS , SERVICE ATTENTIVE WITHOUT OVER ENGAGING. FOOD DELICIOUS AND TIMELY. EXTENSIVE WINE LIST THOUGH FAIRLY PRICEY. OVERALL - WONDERFUL SPOT FOR A NICE EVENING.
Although the food was very tasty, the service was not up to my expectation. The restaurant was busy but our waiter was very distracted with other tables and was slow to take our order. The wait for our dinner was too long confirmed by the multiple apologies provided by the waiter. Hopefully, this was a solo event and my next visit will be better.
Delightful atmosphere, wonderful service, great food. Tables are nicely spaced so you don't feel on top of other diners. Noise level low and we we able to enjoy our conversation. Staff seemed relaxed and happy and that contributed to the enjoyable evening. Our group: 2 couples, long term friends. First time to Oceana. We will go back.
We were in NY for the weekend and visited Oceana for a pre theatre dinner. The price fix menu offered excellent choices and the service was impeccable. The various waiter were highly attentive and the food was well prepared. The meal was served expeditiously but not rushed in order for us to make our show on time. We would openly recommend this restaurant.
Disappointing visit. We selected it on the premise it was a seafood and steakhouse. It isn't. The meat selections are incredibly limited. In terms of the actual experience, the service was incredibly slow. It felt as if no one wanted to pick up our table. (Watching the staff, there were a bunch of huddled conversations but it looked like no one was in charge.) A server was kind enough to shatter an empty wine glass at the table next to us so the shards ended up all over our table. The garden salad had no real discernable taste. The salmon was fair at best but the polenta it sat on was greasy and likewise had no taste. I have dinner out a great deal and I travel to NYC periodically. I am lucky to have great meals there when I visit. I can safely say that this was probably the most disappointing meal I've ever had at a restaurant in NYC. Ever. Skip this place. Unless you're tourist and want to spend a great deal for a mediocre meal. There are a million other place in NYC where you can spend your food dollars wisely.
Service was impeccable, the food was outstanding, the recommendations by staff were on point and the menu (food and wine) provided a good assortment of choices. Portions are not large but you will walk out extremely satisfied. On the pricey side but well worth it.
