    We had a cold seafood platter with oysters, shrimp, and lobster. Oysters were good but the lobster had no taste nor did the shrimp. Tuna tartare and octopus were very good. Entrees across the board we’re done nicely and had good flavor; everyone was pleased though the portions are fairly small. Glad my halibut had a side of couscous. We only had fresh berries for dessert and they were fresh and tasty. Drinks were cold and hit the spot. Service was excellent though all the wait staff, for my table, were very hard to understand (strong accents) especially the guy who brought out the food and the guy who took our order. Still a solid dinner in a nice atmosphere and best of all my UK clients loved it. Thank you.

    I've eaten there several times and it is always wonderful! We had a group of eight and were well taken care of. We had lovely appetizers, plenty of wine and beer, beautiful entrees, and fabulous desserts. I do not recommend the black sea bass; but one unflavorful item does not negate the experience of a lovely dining experience at Oceana! I will return there every time I go to New York!

    The appetizers were very good. We had octopus and crab cake. Our main courses however were very lackluster. The calamari risotto had a strong lemon flavor, I enjoyed the calamari however my dining partner did not. We also had the black bass, I felt it was flavorless, my partner enjoyed the fish but not the accompaniments. I also felt the accompaniments with the black bass was also lacking. The food was decent, however for the price I would have expected better.

    Everything was great! Went there for my lady’s birthday and I was not disappointed! We had Matt as our sommelier, Isaihas as our waiter and their recommendations were spot on in terms of food and drinks! Service was terrific from start to finish and we leaved closer this would definitely be a regular place to visit for us. Very happy customers here!! - I highly recommend the Halibut Ceviche if it’s on the menu

    My boyfriend and I dined at Oceana prior to an evening show and we were so happy with our experience. Prior to being seated, the hostess inquired about our showtime to properly accommodate our time schedule. The cocktails were well balanced, the service was impeccable and the food was exquisite (we tried the cheese plate, yellowtail crudo and lobster scampi). This is one of our new favorite restaurants!

    Outstanding food quality. We had the lobster scampi and my friend had the risotto with calamari and the taste, portions and presentation were excellent. We asked for lemon for our water 3 times as well as parmigiana cheese and they never arrived. The atmosphere was uninspired and cold. We received a very nice mousse cake to celebrate birthdays which was a nice touch.

    The Oceana is a fantastic experience. From the delicious food to the outstanding service it was well worth the money. It’s not a place to rush through your dinner. The atmosphere is very relaxing and one wants to savor the food and the atmosphere.

    We had quite a lot of food (filet mignon, corn ravioli, lobster pasta, the steak and fries on the theater menu (not sure of proper name), cocktail shrimp, creamed spinach, salad, cookie plate and brownie). Everything was good but the creamed spinach wasn’t my cup of tea and the cookie plate is not worth getting (unless you want something very small and average tasting that you could get somewhere else cheaper. Felt bought instead of made by the Resturant.) The starting bread was delicious as well. The staff were very attentive and helpful. I would definitely recommend this point and plan on going again.
