Been to this restaurant before and took some friends...they were blown away. The oysters didn’t disappoint and the seafood tower was fantastic as usual. There is a very wide variety or wines and spirits as well. Our server(wish I can remember his name) was fantastic and very knowledgeable. His recommendations were great and the food was on point as usual. Definitely recommend this place but a bit pricey so would recommend looking at the menu first.
I’m struggling to rate Oceana...reasons...
The FOOD was amazing! Delicious! Fresh seafood and wonderful dishes crafted by skilled chefs. Classy joint for food.
The SERVICE was terrible for a restaurant of this caliber. The waiter neglected the table for 15 mins (my first cardinal rule not to break), didn’t introduce himself and simply said “what would you guys like to order?” No explaining the menu, welcoming us, nothing. When I asked him to explain the menu, he sighed and went through haphazardly for a minute. He never asked us how the food was or if we needed anything...we were fully neglected.
Then all the sudden out of nowhere another clearly overworked server showed up and said “the last guy went home, so you got me now. Can I get you guys some dessert?” He was admittedly nicer. But broke my final cardinal rule...I waited 20 mins after I finished dessert to get ahold of him (by waving my hands in the air like a crazy person) to get my check. By then he knew he had also neglected ya.
No manager came by to check on the meal. No manager in sight at the time of leaving. And front desk didn’t know where the manager was, and we were late - so we left.
I expect and don’t mind this level of lax service at casual table service dining. I highly recommend a rework of this establishments dining staff to take it up to where it should be to match the quality of the food.
I chose this restaurant for a business dinner I was hosting and was extremely pleased overall. The food was delicious and service was excellent. The sommelier suggested a very nice wine that even pleased the wine expert customer I brought along and kept it within my business budget guidelines. I would definitely recommend dining here
We hadn't been to Oceana since they moved from the East Side to their current location (120 W 49th St.) The decor is still elegant and the food and service are wonderful, but the ambience isn't as gracious. The old dining room was upstairs and very quiet; the new one is just off the bar and the happy hour noise level on our recent visit was quite high. To be fair, it did quiet down after 7pm, but we miss the relaxed atmosphere of the former location. However, the hostess kindly seated us even though we arrived a full hour ahead of our reservation - we'd gotten tired of fighting the crowds of holiday tourists in Midtown and just wanted to sit down.
I ordered oysters to start; my husband chose calamari. Given that this was my belated birthday dinner, I had caviar toast next. All were fabulous. Ditto my husband's striped bass with spinach and mushrooms and my - wait for it - three-pound lobster. The lobster was perfectly steamed and served with an insane quantity of drawn butter, which isn't really my thing, but when I asked for extra lemon wedges, they appeared almost before I'd finished making my request. The sommelier's wine recommendation was excellent. We didn't order dessert because the sweets on offer were too cutesy for our tastes (ingredients included rice kripsy treats, PB&J, etc.) It's time to put the kiddie food trend to bed. The kitchen did send out a free chocolate dessert with Happy Birthday gorgeously written on the plate with chocolate sauce - a lovely gesture, but again, the treat didn't measure up to the rest of the meal.
All in all, we had a wonderful time at Oceana and will definitely return.
Food and service were both great, wasn’t wild about the sommelier’s white wine by the glass suggestion , but change to what my wife had for the second glass much better
The food and service were exquisite. However, I found the Ladies' Room unacceptable for such an upscale restaurant. I cannot believe that the dinners at this fine restaurant who used the lavatory were such slobs! Perhaps the management should have a cleaning person check the facility periodically.
Took the family (7) to Oceana after a matinee just before Christmas show and it was spectacular. The ambiance and service were excellent and the Food was perfect. Hard to not like this place.
This was a birthday dinner for my wife. Was absolutely the best choice. Great environment, amazing service and perfectly delicious food.
We did the pre theatre food and wine pairing. Excellent choices and very good value for fine dining!
No atmosphere, uninterested attitude from all the staff, food was ok but advise you to find another restaurant for your $$.
Lobster rice and lobster Bolognese outstanding
The wait staff was curteous and very helpful. The wine list was nice with suggestions on pairing. They even offered to bring over a Sommelier to help. Food was very tasty and not skimpy.
Excellent dinning experience.
We did the theater menu with wine pairing before our show. Food was great! I would definitely recommend the mahi mahi ceviche and the calamari spaghetti. The waiter was also super friendly and helpful explaining the menu and giving his reccomendations. Would definitely go back before a show again. It was my wife’s birthday and they even brought out a fun dessert at the end for us. Overall we had a great evening there.
The food and service were excellent! Great location if you are going to a Broadway show or to see the tree. I would highly recommend this restaurant!
I have been before and was great. Noisy crowded /packed and food was not as good Very disappointed
Food was grest
Attentive service, close to theater, delicious food great but be prepared to pay for it. It is expensive
Service was excellent.we had a seafood tower but I felt like there should have been more seafood for the price. It needed more clams and maybe two more pieces of lobster. There was also no crab. The ceviche was great and different. You don’t usually find that on that dish. Next time get the ceviche sampler, it would have been a better appetizer. The sauces were just eh. Capital Grille has an excellent seafood tower in my opinion.
I had the tuna Wellington which was good but not great. I really did not like the sauces with it. It just was not complementary to the dish. Crust was a little well done, dark brown. Tuna was ok, not very flavorful and a little too thick.
Desserts and wine were excellent. The service is exceptional.
Wait staff was attentive but did not rush you. He food is quite good.
We have dined at Oceana several times on previous trips to New York. This was our best experience. The food is always well prepared and delicious. The decor and ambiance: sophisticated. What made our evening so delightful was the charming sommelier! She was so knowledgeable and helped us pick a wine that was perfect....and one that we would not have thought to choose. She is a valuable asset to the restaurant experience and we wish her well.
I really enjoyed myself. Great food to go with good company. The waitress who took our order was very friendly and inviting.
Excellent food and service
Other than being greeted by a rude Hostess which was straightened out by the General Manager, the restaurant was fantastic !
Food was very good but our waiter was not very knowledgeable and a bit negative regarding dietary restriction. My daughter is gluten free and dairy free. Typically at a restaurant of this level, we have never had an issue and everything is accommodated gracefully. Our waiter never asked if there were any dietary issues and when we told him ours upon ordering, he said she would have to eat plain fish and steamed vegetables as there is butter in everything. When I suggested the chef might be able to use olive oil instead of butter and could he please check to see if that might be an option, he was not pleased. Her food arrived with a beautiful sauce that just used oil instead of butter and our meal was lovely but the waiters attitude definitely put a damper on the evening.
My son’s 19th birthday.
The service was extremely slo and inconsistent. Had to ask for bread. Waiter kind but missed a lot of detail
Such as bringing the side vegetable out long after we requested and had completed our meal. He claimed the kitchen was backed up and did comp a dessert . The resturant was busy but not full so no certain they planned well for the food service on this nitgh.
The service was wonderful, some of the food we got was amazing. The fish I got was way too garlicky and oily, but the lobster pasta was fabulous.
Tuna tartar- tasted fresh but I can only taste lemon and vinegar.
Alaskan king crab- best dish of the night. Tasted very fresh like it was just caught in the sea.
Grilled porgy- nothing special about it. They gave me a whole fish and nothing else. I was expecting more than that, maybe some vegetables with it?
Grilled sea bass- flavor is bland. Probably something I can do better.
What a great time! We were visiting NYC and visited Oceana based on a friends recommendation. The food was outstanding. the Seafood tower was one of the better ones we have had and we are from Boston. The entree's were creatively prepared, the perfect temperature and extremely tasty.
We ordered Surf and turf for 2 and prime rib. All meat was oversalted and horrible. Lobster stringy and tough...obviously not fresh and spent 500 for 3!! Terrible!
A wonderful meal in a gorgeous setting. Energetic bar scene.
Oceana can't be beat for an elegant pre-theater dinner. Service is friendly and efficient and the food is delicious. . Because the bar season is vibrant, to say the least, and may have been more frenetic at December holiday time, we suggest a table as far from the bar as possible.
the owner always gives us first class attention.
Always great and accommodating. We started with 10 and ended with 14 people and they were great to support us. Food and drink and service great.
My wife and I always have a dinner (usually dover sole) at Oceana when we visit from Philadelphia, which we do 3 or 4 times a year.
Great food in horrifically chaotic and ear-shattering noise. Good pick if you don’t plan to have any conversation at all.
Great pre theater menu. The staff is wonderful....very accomidating.
Great ambiance with an awesome bar crowd!
Outstanding food and great services. Servant as well as managers stay on top of your concerns. I would strongly recommend it to my friends.
