This was one of the best meals I have ever had! Every course was simply superb and the wine selected with help from the someleier was outstanding.
I haven’t looked in to the history of why the lost their Michelin star, but this was better than two star restaurants I have been to.
Food, wine, service, ambiance all excellent. Pricy, but you get what you pay for.
Sadly they are moving their reservations off OpenTable after August 6 2018.
My girlfriend and I was at Oceana for the tasting menu with the executive chef Bill Telephan . There were 8 other guests. It was on Bastille Day and the menu emphasis was French. We and everyone else thought that everything was beyond extraordinary. Chef Bill was gracious, extremely friendly and especially funny. He is really a wonderful chef and person. Each dish was exceptional. We highly recommend Oceana and the once a month tasting menu in a very close setting with Chef Bill Telephan.
Excellent service and very good food. We made a reservation for a pre theatre dinner and the waiter was aware of this and kept us on track for ordering so that we had plenty of time to get to the theatre promptly. The calamari was especially notable and the swordfish was quite good. Recommend this place for a nice dinner on a special occasion or a pre-theatre dinner.
Best seafood in NY. Friends from out of town came in and we were looking for special place to go. It was a perfect night out. We highly recommend Oceana.
Oceana provided excellent service and outstanding food. You would be hard pressed to find a better seafood restaurant in manhattan. The quality of the food and wine was well worth the price. Highly recommend!
Excellent in all respects. Dover sole was outstanding.
Good wine selection. Great deserts. Definite first choice in mid town.
Went early for pre-theater. Nice quiet table, friendly and helpful waiter who said he would space out our 3 course "theater" menu. First course, (after some good bread) was great. I had 4 oysters and my wife had a very large order of Calamari. But then we waited, waited and waited for our mains. Finally a runner brought a second round of our first course; we sent him away asking where our mains were. We also flagged down our server. Many minutes later, the mains arrived. My wife's salmon was undercooked; my swordfish was overcooked. Clearly they screwed up. We got apolgies from the waiter and later from "Eric" and they took a good discount off the bill. Dessert and coffee were excellent. My ratings would be lower but they recognized they screwed up and tried to address it.
Good location, menu choices, preparation, service. Ideal for both business and personal get-togethers. Always on our list of restaurant options.
The grilled octopus, fried calamari for starters is terrific, had the swordfish and lobster on pasta the sauces are to die for.
Service and space were great. Food was average, and underwhelming considering the price.
Phenomenal as always , have been there numerous times and I always leave thinking Oceana is one of, if not the best seafood restaurant in NYC
The service is outstanding as were the wine pairings. The food was a little mixed though - the chicken was excellent, the swordfish was very good (but the side chosen for it did not go with it well), and hanger steak was just alright. The desserts were also good.
Had drinks and dinner before show. Hostess and servers made sure we got to the show on time. Lobster entrees, calamari and oysters were all excellent.
Amazing food and excellent service.
excellent value if a bit pricey. Strong sense of fairness. All food is well-spiced and presented. classic not trendy
My wife and I live near Philly and always eat at Oceana when we visit NYC, which happens several times a year. The dover sole is great and the bananas foster was exceptional.
Great flavors along with pleasant attentive service. We will be back.
Great place for amazing seafood! Wonderful service....
The waiter was awesome
Just popped in while hanging out in the City and popped in on the fly. Food was great as always. I might have had the best soft shell crab ever on this particular occasion and the Blueberry Souffle for dessert was incredible. We also received some wonderful tips from the sommelier.
Food was superb. Our server Mina was awesome with great suggestions. The warm rhubarb cake for dessert was fantastic. Highly recommend.
I have been to Oceana before. While I have always been satisfied, this occasion was the best. The food arrived quite quickly. The salad I had was fresh and delicious. The fish (sea bass) was just outstanding, piping hot and cooked to perfection. The dessert of sorbet was excellent too. I thought the staff could have been a bit more accommodating by offering pepper etc. when the dishes came out. But I was able to request these items easily. On the whole, Oceana offers a great pre-theater experience.
This was our first visit to Oceana. I went with my wife as it was one of the pending 1st Quality Restaurants we have not been during the many years we live in NYC.
Despite that the service was very good and the Bar has a very nice atmosphere, we were disappointed with the quality of the food. We expected to have great seafood as this is the specialty of the Restaurant. The only outstanding plate we ordered was the Soft Shell Crab...delicious! The Porgy was just fair and the grilled salmon in the very lower level. We also ordered the Octopus as an appetizer but we sent it back due its unacceptable quality.
The desert we ordered was nothing special to emphasize.
The wine list is very good and the sommelier as well as the whole service was magnificent.
Tasty but small portions.
I want to start by saying that the whole staff was extremely kind and willing to accommodate. Ten plus years ago servers were far from either mentioned above in the city. It’s been a slow transition to good but nonetheless Louis was a 10!!!! Couldn’t have been nicer. My husband ordered the swordfish as listed on the menu. It was a 10!!!! I got the halibut modified and it wasn’t nearly as good, partially my own fault I’m sure for asking for it a different way. My daughter ordered a hamburger from the bar. It was burnt! She was really disappointed. Stuff happens so we let it slide. The manager walked by during our meal and commented on the giant crab coming out of the tank. He too was friendly and well mannered. All in all we would return.
Got a quick bite before theater ordering two appetizers instead of an appetizer and an entrée and it was a good decision... got the baked oysters as my appetizer followed by their grilled octopus. Perfect!! I look forward to the next time
Delicious dinner, excellent service and great energy
We celebrated our 35th anniversary pre-theater and were treated royally. Highly recommend!
Beautiful restaurant near Times Square - excellent food and ambiance and service. One of our favorites - will definitely return.
The food was delicious and the device was excellent, just a bit noisy
Chef and his team one of the best I ever experience
A very pleasant atmodphere with servants of the most professional level.
VERY FRIENDLY WELCOME, EXTREMELY HELPFUL, FRIENDLY AND COURTEOUS WAITPERSON. SUPPORT PEOPLE TOOK EXCELLENT CARE OF US AT DINNER. FOOD WAS VERY GOOD.
OF SPECIALNOTE, IS THEIR REASONABLY PRICED PRE-THEATRE DINNER. NICE SIZE PORTIONS AND A GOOD VARIETY OFDISHES TO CHOOSE FROM.
We have eaten in this restaurant several times but this last visit did not go well at all. I ordered a salad for my appetizer and not one server came over to ask if I would like fresh pepper on it. Yet, they did go to the people seated two tables over from us. Secondly, we ordered a pasta dish and I had to ask if they had parmesan cheese , then it was finally brought to us. Lastly, our desert was brought to us and, again I had to ask if we could get a cup of coffee . This is an upscale New York restaurant and I was terribly disappointed in the service. I do think that one of the problems is that you do not have a specific waiter. One person took our order, another person brought our main course, and another person brought our desert. I really feel very bad about this experience. I had even given my boss a two hundred dollar gift card yo Oceana as a Christmas gift. We will think twice about returning to Oceana .
Service was superb. Food was very good. Prices were high, particularly the wine list which is extensive. Would recommend the fish specials for sure.
Outstanding as always
The staff and their service made for a delightful pre theater dinner along with some of the tastiest seafood dishes ever enjoyed in the Big Apple. Looking forward to another opportunity to trying some of the other menu enticements on the next visit which won't be too long from now.
For a big-budget client dinner, they delivered well.
Beautiful spacious room, salads at lunch were fresh and tasty. Salmon Burger and Lobster Roll also terrific. Staff super accommodating and quick service. Thank you.
