From start to finish, everything was impeccable. Our waiter made wonderful oyster and wine recommendations. His service and the food was spot on. It rates up there with one of the best meals we have ever had in a restaurant. Oceanaire continues to live up to fine dining expectations even in difficult times. I only wish I could remember our waiters name. I must write these things down. Thank you Oceanaire for being the highlight of our business trip.

Overall horrible! It started with poor service. The restaurant was not crowded but the waiter took his time taking our order and then when we got our salad it and ask for bread he acted like we had ask for something absurd. Then he brought it out with a small tray of dried up vegetables like two carrots, a couple beets a couple olives and three radishes. We ask what it was and he called it a relish tray. Our calamari came out soaking in grease and had what we thought to be fried squash but after eating one found out it was fried lemons. They were soaking in cooking grease as well. We were both sick to our stomachs after dining here and were charged for the “bread service”
We also had ask about validation for parking and he told us they stopped doing that to cut down on cost since Covid. The parking was $10 for the time we were there which was not very long. The prices were expensive especially for what you get for the money. I would never go here again even if it were free!! Don’t waste your time, money or stomach on this place. It’s sure to disappoint!

The margarita didn’t taste like a margarita, it was awful. The clam chowder lacked substance and was like a soup, not a chowder. We ordered the sea bass grilled, it was over cooked, we also ordered the pan seared sea bass which was grainy and lacked taste. The whipped potatoes and the broccoli lacked seasoning. One last note, I never been in a restaurant where the garage can was rolled out from the bar though the dining seating area three times. We would not recommend this restaurant.

As usu, the food was excellent. Drinks were top notch. Ambiance at Oceanaire is always nice. But the service was absolutely wonderful. Maddy our waitress was on top of everything and just really personable and exceptionally attentive. The manager on duty was attentive too. We had a great time. Nice way to begin the new year.

Our first time at the restaurant. We enjoyed the food and the service. However, we were surprised to find the menu online did not match the menu at the restaurant. There were some items we saw on online that we want to try. Nonetheless, a good experience.

While the food was good as always. Certain Services were taken away like valet parking and the restaurant does not validate to discount the parking for restaurant patrons. Secondly bread and relish dish was in the past complimentary and now is $3.50

We went because of a holiday 3 course couples special that was available for 2 days. We’ve enjoyed their food, especially since they’ve offered great takeout options during Covid, and hadn’t eaten at the actual restaurant prior to now in years. Although they were light staffed, the ambiance was great, the crowd was small, and the service was perfect. I’d highly recommend you checking them out. I haven’t had anything from the food menu or bar that wasn’t great. This place is a perfect for date night or a special occasion with a group.

Brought salads right after entrees. Timing did not work all thru dinner. Served martini with chip in glass. Sent back and it was obvious that the bar poured gin from original glass to new one. Expect a much better experience than we received. Been to Ocean Air and Ocean Prime all over US. This one was disappointing.

I really looked forward to dining here, the food was just okay. The best were the cocktails and maybe the salad, everything was bland. The location and parking were great, however, the food was just subpar, I guess the pricing was for the location. It was my birthday celebration, I told the waiter, sadly I was not even offered a cupcake for dessert. That was very disappointing.

As a food blogger, I was disappointed in my experience or no experience eating here last night for Christmas dinner. Where do I begin, okay…a couple who did not have a reservation was seated before me…noted taken #1. Then we get seated 15 min after arrival, with the hostess walks 8 miles per hour when I’m walking 3 miles per hour with my martini in my hand trying now to spill…you get the visual…now we’re seated, our server who was great - we ordered oysters…I ordered beet salad with goat cheese my bestie ordered clam chowder. So now 20 minutes has came and gone I looked at my watch and a man appears with all back on with a red jacket (fresh manager training) to say we’re out of your beet salad…hmmm…okay…that manager out of training did not say, how can I make you whole. Can I offer you anything. He proceeded to say OK as he listened. Now I will just sped it up…they were out of the sea bass (which I came for) and three other seafood items. Knowing they were open for business…could they have reprinted the menu to reflect what’s on the menu…YES!!!

At this point I’m done and ready to go, I ask for the check, they did comp our food court high we ordered salmon, Brussels sprouts, Ahi Tuna, Asparagus and clam chowder, which they ran out as well. My point is adjust the menu to what you have and timing should be on point. Amy the manager try to make it right, thank you Amy!

It was my wife birthday plus Christmas Day so I wanted the day to be special. I decided to make reservations so the restaurant could be aware of the occasion. From the moment we walked through the door the hostess started the horrific first time experience.
I literally had to ask the busgirl if I could switch tables due to the hostess giving away our reserve table and decided to squeeze us in a tight spot. Although our reservation was at 7 and we arrived at 6:50
To make matters worse my wife food never came. She order lobster tail and asparagus. Received the lobster tail no asparagus

I only saw the waiter a total of four times, that include the table that I first started out with before making the switch.

Overall
I will never dine here again.

Requested a booth with our reservation. We were seated at a table and asked the hostess if a booth was available because we had requested one with our reservation. She responded “NOT NOW!” I walked back up the the hostess stand and asked for a booth and was told it would be another 10 minute wait. We agreed to wait. While waiting, we noticed the couple that arrived immediately behind us had been seated at a booth second table inside the door from the hostess stand!!! The “Not Now!” response was unprofessional , rude and apparently inaccurate. I would have expected a “let me check for you sir” but apparently unprofessionalism and rudeness are alive and well at Oceanaire!
Our server was nice but we were taken back when we were served appetizers before our drinks arrived.
My entree was good but not great. My fiancé couldn’t finish her salmon as she found it worse than many other places we frequent.
While dining we noticed servers walking around not knowing where to take food. Very disappointed in the service and quality for a place at this price point. Chops, Capital Grille and even a chain like Ruth Chris provide much better service and value.
One last note, bourbon whiskey menu is lacking.
Thanks for a disappointing Christmas dinner.

Me and my husband frequently come to the oceanaire for dinner our waiter and the food was wonderful but I am disappointed because the manager usually comes to our table to check on the service the manager you had on Christmas Day went to every other table around and next to us and never came to our table I was a little disappointed with that he had a red jacket on very tall young man

It was Christmas day and we wanted to go somewhere the food was great and the service even better.

What a disappointment. The food was good, but the service was awful. It seemed like are server was much more interested in serving his larger tables. We had extreme lapses in getting his attention. Which really spoiled our whole intention of having a lovely dinner.

No I would not recommend this restaurant to others, it was a real awful experience and it was on Christmas

This was our Christmas Eve dinner and we had the expectation of an elevated experience. While there were a few bright spots sprinkled throughout the evening, it was overall disappointing. The caviar service was delicious. The Caesar salads looked tired but surprisingly well dressed.

The main course was the worst part. The Maryland crab cakes were undersized and plainly presented for the price. The asparagus side was very woody, as the stalks were untrimmed and on the greasy side. My first choice was the sole but was sold out, so the sea bass was a distant choice. When the fish was presented, it too looked dropped on the plate and masked with a flavorless beurre blanc slathered over top. Additionally, the sea bass was over cooked and dry. The hard sear made it taste like a fast food fish sandwich minus the steamed bun and tarter sauce.

Capping off the entire experience was the lackluster service, which was perfunctory at best. The server was unenthusiastic and not engaging at all. No suggestions, no upsell (which I would have appreciated for an occasion meal such as Christmas Eve), and generally disinterested in serving us. We could overhear other servers interacting with their nearby tables and we would have enjoyed an experience like that more. By no means am I suggesting a server should put on a performance, they should at least make their guests feel welcome.

It was my second visit to Oceanaire separated by several years. The experiences were similar and reminded me why it would be my last visit to the restaurant.

Meal was very good and the overall experience was nice. I do not, however, think it was worth the $500 price tag for 4 people, two of whom didn’t order drinks. Service was okay (server was new) and the food quality was good, not spectacular. Probably not likely to return. There are just too many amazing options in Atlanta to drop that kind of money on an “okay” meal.
