I didn’t eat much because in my hunger, I regretfully and mistakenly filled up on bread so my experience is through my mothers eyes. She enjoyed all her food except the grilled lobster. But that was because she discovered she preferred broiled lobster. No mark on the chef just her preference. Overall a very attentive wonderful dinner. Only one caveat a woman whose title I’m unsure of kindly greeted us and escorted us out. I assume she was a manager maybe? A hostess? We weren’t sure. It would have been nice if she explained who she was. Otherwise everything was perfect and I’m glad I was able to treat my mom.

In the early afternoon I went on line to try to book a table for that evening for 7:30. It showed first availability was 8:30 so I booked that although that is later that I like to dine. At about 5:00 I called the restaurant to ask if there was any chance I could be squeezed in earlier. She told me that the restaurant was wide open that evening so, yes, I could come earlier. When I arrived at 7:30, I would estimate that only about 1/3 of the tables were occupied. I mentioned this to the manager who said he would look into it. As for the service, I had barely finished my starter when my main course arrived. Too fast.

We have eaten in some very good restaurants on both coasts and in Europe. However, my Significant Other and I agreed that Oceanaire provided us with likely the best seafood and dining experience we have had in a long time. Maybe ever. The freshest seafood prepared with care and simple additions that accentuated each dish. We started out with a normally simple fried calimari - only the chef had accentuated it with unusual items like fried lemon! Very fresh calamari - wonderful. We both like crab and decided to share two specials recommended by the waiter - Avi (who was great): an Alaskan halibut and two crab cakes. Both perfectly prepared and both absolutely fresh. With a perfect remoulade on the side for the crab. Almost as an after-thought, we ordered a side of collards. These are not your grandmother's collards; these were the best collard greens we had ever had with lean bacon accents and they had a balsamic vinegarette reduction in them making them most delicious and a good compliment. And their Baked Alaska is to die for.
Service was excellent - with great coordination between the main waiter, and all the table support staff. The manager even stopped by to inquire if everything was satisfactory. Actually the best table service in my memory.
Also, the atmosphere and interior design were also terrific - with booths being circular and yet open enough to observe the room if you wished. Understated and casually elegant.
I read where someone wrote that the prices were high. Yes, it costs a lot to fly fresh fish in from around th world. The Alaskan halibut we had was probably swimming off the coast of Alaska less than 48 hours earlier. There is a cost to that - and the difference between frozen anything and halibut is tremendous.
In short, Oceanaire is a special occasion restaurant for us and we will be returning.

My first time coming here and I feel that my service was overall bad. My server was rushing me and my party to put our orders in before we could even come to a decision on what we would like to eat. He even kept telling us that certain items would be a different price every time we wanted to add on or change something. I don’t know if he thought we didn’t have the money to purchase the dish we inquired about or whatever but felt as if he thought we wasn’t able to pay for it. My mom had ordered a salmon with grits and she didn’t like her salmon at all. She informed them on it and they asked her will she like to pay for an additional dish, as well as the dish she had ordered already. I would never refer anyone to this place this will be my first and last time ever coming here.

This is the second time in recent months that I have had the opportunity to dine at Oceanaire Seafood Room. Like the first time, I was impressed with the entire experience. The hostess warmly greeted me, directed me to my table and ensured I was satisfied with the location. The designated server was Crystal and she was superb!! From the time I arrived at my table to my departure she was courteous, attentive and well informed about the menu. In fact, her suggestion that I select the halibut made the entire meal a culinary delight. I will continue to dine at Oceanaire whenever I am in Midtown and especially when I attend a performance at the Alliance Theater.

This was an early birthday dinner.... BEST CHOICE ❤️❤️
The food was excellent.... service was great. I appreciated the birthday greeting from almost all the staff. The drinks were top notch ... we had a few.
I had the sea bass- melt in your mouth !!
My boyfriend had the salmon- he was quiet the whole time 🤣
Truffle whipped potatoes and broccolini , great side choices.
And of course we left room for dessert 🍮 and coffee ☕️
We will most definitely be back‼️‼️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

I ordered yellow fin tuna and wanted medium rare. It was almost rare and was not told it would be served with wasabi and soya sauce...this not what I was expecting. The hash browns were not cooked enough, no price cut on this item even if we didn’t eat it...

I've been to Oceanaire quite a bit of times and the food and service is always great, but the service we got on our last visit was top notch. Our waiter Avi was OUTSTANDING! He made us feel like we were the only table he was serving. Very attentive always making sure we had what we needed while having someone shadow him, and taking care of another two large group. For a Monday it was a bit busier and louder than I expected. But we had a great night thanks to our waiter. When you spend this type of money on food great food and service is what you expect and that's what we got!

I researched this restaurant before making a reservation for our vacation in Atlanta. I read the reviews noting the price was not justified and I do have to agree. The restaurant was clean, great service...everything else you would expect from an upscale restaurant, however the prices were crazy!! We had an appetizer each, two drinks, main meals, and one dessert and our bill came to almost $200 for the two of us. This is not counting in the $50 tip I left our server. There were lots of other amazing choices in the area and if we were ever to return I would definitely pick another place to dine.

To start the drinks came out wrong for both of us. Then when the food was delivered the waitress said the chef wanted to fix hers another way than what she asked and she went for it. Who does that? She actually thought my wife was going to buy that. It was a Birthday dinner out of town and a complete disaster. Ended up going across the street to STK which I would highly recommend.

1. Waiter forgot to bring a bottle of wine which was ordered. He eventually remembered, but we had finished dinner by then,
2. The scallops were described as "large"; they were not.
3. The cake described on the menu as caramel cake was chocolate cake with a small pitcher of caramel cake on the side. It definitely wasn't caramel cake!
4. I had a $25 Landry birthday award. I was told at the end of the meal that the lines with the parent Landry was down so I couldn't get the award.

Everything was perfect. The lobster and noodles were great. The waitress gave us great suggestions on our food. We shared the salad and she separated it for us. This was our first time here. We loved the presence of people who resembled me and my wife. This was our first time out since we moved to Georgia. The only issue we had was.......
We just were seated near a group that was disrespectful with language and racial slurs to each other...loudly. There was a couple celebrating 30 yr anniversary, (60's/70's). As they walked past us and the bunch they had no respect. I don't want to degrade the place for there actions. I will say they had to know how disturbing it was before they seated us. We discovered afterwards.
