overpriced for food quality, definitely not a special experience, waiter rushed service when he discovered we weren't drinking. Oysters rockefeller were super skimpy 3 for an expensive appetizer. Meal was over $150 with no alcohol or dessert!
We had dined there 8 years ago and we think t has lost it's touch!

This was our second visit to this restaurant and was very pleased with our meal. The scallops were perfectly seared and the greens dish was good but just a little sweet which was not expected. My friend had the trout and the stuffed shrimp with crab meat and was very pleased but the best dish for the evening was the shrimp and grits! We could of had that for our entire meal~

The luncheon was a farewell treat for a valued employee. Oceanaire created a special customized menu with the employee's name scripted at the top stating, "Farewell, Karen!" It was impressive and my guest took it home and had it framed. This was a very nice extra touch to our dining experience.

If you love top of the line seafood, Oceanaire is the place. We get scallops RARE that taste like butter and sashimi tuna. AMAZING!!! Then there is the Mac & Blue (macaroni and cheese) which is to die for! LOVE IT. Everytime we have gone, the service, quality of food, etc. has always been consistent. They call you by name even....where else does that!

A decent fresh fish restaurant in mid-town. We dined very early in the evening so the place was empty and dinner service was just starting so I can't say much about the ambiance of the place. The service was a little spotty. Oysters were nice and fresh. Food was fine but not memorable.

It was a good restaurant but I left feeling like I had expected a more fulfilling experience. Food was good, service was slightly above average, and the price was not out of line with similar establishments...it just didn't excite me to think that I wanted to rush back again as soon as possible. One thing that really bothered me was the round "booths" that generally faced the center of the restaurant-it would not have been so bad if the wait staff didn't stand around the exit of the kitchen talking and looking at you during your entire meal. Overall I would recommend trying it but I am not sure I will be rushing to go back.

The food is always good and consistent. The service is always great and one thing that I like about this restaurant, from the people that check you in to the guy that refilled our water, they knew who was sitting at the table and that always make me feel special when I eat at this restaurant.

WENT EARLY AS WE HAD A TWO-YEAR-OLD AND STILL HAD GREAT SERVICE FROM DANIEL H. AND ANGEL. HAD TO ADD AN EXTRA PERSON BUT THAT WAS DONE BEAUTIFULLY. ALSO HAD ANOTHER PERSON IN A WHEELCHAIR WITH NO PROBLEM. ONLY HANG-UP WAS THAT THE VALET PARKING WAS NOT OPEN WHEN all ARRIVED AND TWO CARS HAD TO PARK ON THE STREET AND WALK including a 76 year-old. I WAS A FEW MINUTES LATE,SO IT WAS OPEN BY THEN, BUT WITH A WHEELCHAIR VALET PARKING IS CLOSE TO BEING NECESSARY.

We have dine here before a few times. The first 2-3 were memorable. The last couple of experiences were not so good. This last time the halibut/cod on the fried seafood entree was inedible. Two of us [out of a party of 3] ordered this. Neither of us could eat it. The manager did glady replace it after asked. We are used to more suggestions/follow-up service from wait staff at this restaurant. We did not receive it. Not the special attention we had come to know from this establishment. The crab cakes were not the usual spectacular fare either. They have always been one of my favorites.

In short, the food is over priced and certainly does NOT warrant a special trip to this place where there is no free parking!

This place was a little stuffy for me -- more of a throwback vibe, definitely not hip or trendy. The vibe felt like somewhere my parents or grandparents would take me for special occasion when we were kids. Classic and some modern seafood dishes, prepared very well, but for the price, I expected more. It cost my husband and I $150 plus tip to split one app, have one entree each and two cocktails each. Had it come in under $100 I would have rated it higher. Again the food was good, but nothing so amazing or new that I felt it was worth $150 plus tip. I wouldn't recommend this place to any of my friends, but think my parents (who are both in their mid 60's) would probably dig it.

Celebrated my husband's 50th birthday! The staff at Oceanaire was very accommodating to say the least. Menu was personalized with my husband's name and a birthday greeting. We also dined at the Chef's Table which was wonderful (candlelight included)!! The food was delicious (and the wine, too). We have been patrons of this great dining establishment for some time now, and will continue to be in the future.

The service and consistency at Oceanaire make it a standout. Midtown Atlanta has a lot of cool/funky restaurants, but few who measure up for big corporate dinners or when you want the flash of old-school perfect service. They do this very well... plus there's Baked Alaska!

Our food was mediocre and overpriced. The service was slow and we had to ask the waiter to check on both our entrees and main courses. We also had to ask for refills on water more than once. For more than $100 per person, I would have hoped for a lot more.

Went here with my gf during a romantic weekend trip. Food was great and the ambiance was lovely. Hard wood floors, classy light fixtures above each table and low lighting made it a great evening. The decor favors a ship. They offer a variety of wines and their Oyster Rockefeller appetizer is awesome!! They also have a large bar and a sushi bar to accommodate you while you're waiting to be seated.

We made reservations through OpenTable and noted that it was our first time. Though they gave us a booth, it was on the edge of nowhere.

The food at Oceanaire was really, very good. We started with escargot then had two seafood dishes with several sides. The stuffed flounder was rich and beautifully prepared, delicious. And the crabcakes were the best this side of Pimlico. The collard greens were a mean unto themselves, but I thought the oatmeal topped sweet potato souffle was a bit odd. The service left a lot to be desired for the cost of the meal. The music belonged in a club.

We'd probably only recommend Oceanaire to someone who needed a restaurant within walking distance from i

My guests and I were pleased with the ambiance and the service was exceptional. The food was appealing to the eye and excellent to the tastebuds. One of my guest thought that the shrimp and grits were to "die for"! The service was timely and the server was friendly and attentive to our requests. The tableside presentation of the Baked Alaska was very impressive. I would definately recommend this restaurant to family and friends alike.

Went for a special occasion, it was decent. Service a bit slow & they didn't enforce a stronger dress code (patrons in ballcaps, jeans, t-shirts). They ran out of a few things we were interested in.

The most disappointing things were the tacky Valet sign (reminding you coming and going that it's $2 and the "service company keeps it and valets rely on you" as well as that they slopped the remainder of our food into a cardboard box (risotto right on the bottom, no paper or anything) and then wrapped the remaining sides (mushrooms and sweet potato souffle) in wadded up paper and threw it on top barely closing the box.

I actually called the restaurant and spoke to a manager who was unapologetic said, "that's what they have to use". B

Went to Oceanaire for a belated Valentine's day romantic dinner. Used the Florist within OpenTable to have a nice flower arrangement waiting on the table, and had sent the restaurant a message in my OpenTable reservation to have a custom message printed on the menus for her. Oceanaire handled the entire thing seamlessly, and treated us like royalty. Service was A++ and the food was Great. I had the Black n Bleu Mahi Mahi, and she had the Scallops. We had the creme brulee for dessert and a couple of Bleu Goose cocktails. Everything was commendable, She was thoroughly impressed (not easy to do) and I'll definitely be going back there again!
