Have eaten at this restaurant several times on trips to the city. The food and service has always been excellent. it will remain on my list of restaurants for New York dining.
Excellent service. The food was great. The lobster Bolognese may have been the best pasta ever! Will come back again when we are in NYC.
Always outstanding. Excellent seafood choices; all fresh, creative. Service is excellent. You pay the price but always worth it.
Great food everything delicious
Service was e cellemt
Nice to be able to have conversations
It is pricey so can not dine as often as I would like to
Service was excellent! Food was excellent! My party and I chose from the pre theater menu - all dishes were fresh and delicious. Ambience was sophisticated but relaxed. Highly recommend.
My son and I chose Oceana for its extensive seafood menu. It was a special occasion before going to the theater. We shared the trio of seafood starters which was excellent. My son had an array of oysters and soft shell crab for dinner. I had the halibut which was mild and delicious. We had a white savignon Blanca&Marc and Pinot Grigio to accompany our meals. We shared the rhubarb cake for dessert last o finish off the meal. A lovely evening.
Oceana was an excellent restaurant in mid town. Wonderful choices of seafood. Excellent salads. Service was excellent.
Very comfortable surroundings.
The lobster bolognese was one of the best things I've eaten in NYC.
A Michelin rated resturant, unbelievably tasty dishes, and the absolute best service.
I am so happy I re-found you! Now we have a great restaurant to go to when celebrating special occasions and wanting for lobster. Everything was delicious, the wait staff was excellent and could not ask for more.
The place is beautiful, the service is outstanding, a typical of the theater district restaurants.
The gazpacho tasted better than the one I had in Madrid.
The Steak House sword fish was little salty and a very small portion.
Good food; very expensive
The wife and I needed a good spot before a show. Oceana was recommended and had a great pre-theater menu. I had the fried calamari - delicious - and bacon wrapped trout. Our server was very nice and attentive. My wife loved her calamari pasta. Highly recommend.
Very tasty lobster roll sandwich. Not one of those mayonnaise filled ones. Lots of very tasty chunks of lobster with a bit of oil instead of mayo. Great kettle chips too!
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.
