Oceana was the perfect welcome back to indoor dining in Manhattan. Beautiful new renovation of the raw bar and main dining areas - young exciting chefs. Perfect combo.. We cannot wait to return!
Coming to the city
Sister’s birthday. Loved everything about it. Service was great!
Good food, location was ideal. Staff were very accommodating. Overall wonderful experience
Good seafood. Pairing wine is good. Price is little bit expensive.
Anniversary , for which they did a very nice job
This place is absolutely amazing! The food was soo good! The drinks were great! The ambiance was very intimate and perfect for small groups! Would definitely go back again!
Dining at Oceana has always been a wonderful experience. The new design and decor is simply gorgeous.
Oceana is so wonderful! As always, the food was superb -- so fresh and tender and juicy! The crab cakes and the lobster were especially fabulous! We went for Steve's birthday and had a fantastic time! And they even brought him a special little birthday cake!! We go back again and again and always love it!
Excellent food and service - definitely glad to have them open again. I will be back.
Always a lovely experience
Large restaurant with only a few customers the night we were there. Nevertheless, the service was very slow. I do not believe this was the fault of the wait staff, but rather the kitchen. The food was very good. we liked the seared octopus, Caesar salad, and Smoked Bay Scallop Tagliatelle. The Mushroom Carbonara was good but not special.
Me and the hubby made a quick last min reservation on a sat night was seated rather quickly service wasn’t bad but it was quite empty as well! Would come again , crab cakes and octopus was yummy
Great service and great food!
It was a fabulous experience and the food was delicious! I would highly recommend !
We went to celebrate my wife’s bday. The wait staff was super friendly, with great hospitality and well skilled in taking care of us.
Great place, wonderful service and tremendous food what’s not to like. Wine paring was superb and Andrew the wine director the very best.
Food was delicious! The wait staff was attentive and friendly. Sommelier was outstanding. An amazing night was had by all!
Wonderful dinner. Food still excellent. So happy to see this restaurant survive the pandemic. Still a top choice.
It was awesome. Andrew picked amazing wines. It’s why I always go back there.
Fantastic spot for a team lunch. Amazing service and great vale for this kind of food.
Fabulous food, drink, ambiance and service TOP NOTCH as ever! So very good to have you back Oceana!! Beautiful new interior remodel with very comfortable and enormous COVID spacing. Appetizers: Delicious parsnip soup and bay scallops with pear and gin sauce (piquant and genius!). Mains: NY Chicken with bacon, bacon, bacon marvelous and Halibut with English Pea and couscous grilled to perfection. Chocolate Bar with peanut butter and phenomenal crunchies together with excellent coffee topped off yet another excellent meal at Oceana. Look forward to dining with you on the patio soon!
Wonderful to be back! The food, wine, and service were superb. Especially enjoyed the Scottish salmon and rich, flavorful gelato.
Always a solid meal and great wines!
Beautiful place to dine in every way. The service, food, music and ambiance were top notch. I am a vegan and I was very pleased with the options available.
We went for our anniversary and it was one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. The staff was extremely friendly and the food was delicious. We tried the four course option which allows you to get a bit of every part of the menu and everything we tried was great. Would highly recommend and we will be coming back again soon.
Absolutely amazing food and service! Cannot wait to go back. My only suggestion if you go and its before 8 pm to get the 4 course chef special. The portions are a little bit on the smaller side so with that you get an apetizer,pasta,main and dessert so you will leave full as long as you have the 4 courses!
Amazing service from staff who are attentive, courteous, and knowledgeable about the menu.
The food was delicate and delicious!
My wife and I had a wonderful time at Oceana for thanksgiving this year. I was hoping since this was a larger midtown restaurant that there would be proper distance between tables and I was correct, most tables are more than 10 feet apart. There service was wonderful and food was great. We will be dining here again. Its one of the few place I feel complete comfortable dining indoors during the Covid crisis.
We sat outside for their pre fixe Thanksgiving meal around 3:30 pm. We booked it the night before since we canceled our Thanksgiving travel plans to fly home to our families. I’m always a little weary of prefixe menus as I’ve had some negative experiences, however our meals were out-of-this-world delicious. Every.Single.Bite. It was seafood with a fall twist and we were hooked and wishing for larger stomachs by the end of it 😅 Thank you Oceana for the most fantastic food which was a bright light during a pandemic Thanksgiving.
Excellent restaurant that I would highly recommend to everyone
As always, Oceana never disappoints. The food was exquisite. Go for the Filet Mignon if you are a meat eater or the Monkfish if you prefer fish. Anything and everything on the menu is delicious. One of our top three NYC restaurants. Excellent wine list as well. The decor and ambiance are true NYC and timeless. Warm and spacious. Service is always excellent! Helpful and courteous servers. Recommend highly!!
The $35/person Three Course Lunch is such a good deal and definitely worth it. The food was delicious, and I can’t wait to go back to try the other dishes.
Number 1 and most importantly, the food and service was amazing. From the wine, apps, entrees and desert... it was so delicious and rich tasting. The staff was so friendly and respectful, I couldn’t have asked for better service. Given that it’s COVID mid-November in NYC, I really didn’t want to eat outside, however, also a little hesitant to sit inside. But our reservations were at 6 and I quickly had zero hesitation when I saw the restaurant was empty when we got there. And as more people came the staff did a great job spacing everyone out. Oceana has a fairly large space, especially for NYC, and I felt completely safe eating inside. It’s probably “less safe” going to the grocery store than eating inside at a place like Oceana. Highly recommend and will definitely be back!
Food was quality and they spaced it out very well. Drinks were amazing nice and strong . Will definitely go back !
My overall experience is good given the service and food. It could have been better the the setup outside been better. The separating post should enclose the seating area to avoid outsiders from coming in while guest are dinning. There should only be one opening not two. Someone asked for money while we were sitting and UPS guys wheeled in a delivery while I was trying to have lunch with a client. Hope staff noticed and improved the set up.
Everything excellent! Thanks. Should offer more desserts options.
