The food was extremely good and the service was incredible. The server was attentive and friendly. Top marks to chef and food staff for a great meal with strong bold flavors. Truly recommend for a great brunch.

The service was on point for the most part but the entree took a long time to come out and when my fish did arrive it was room temperature and I asked the server Liz how long had it been waiting she said it was brought right out and I told her it was room temperature and a piece of the fish was raw and I showed her and she stated she was not cooking the food which I did not understand that statement and she never brought a manager over I was going to pay and did pay for it and tipped her well which is why I thought she was hesitant to bring a manager over but to spend just under $300 for a dinner and not be satisfied with the handling of the situation not good.

Our first visit to Ouzo Bay, but not our last. We had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner. Service was excellent. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and able to answer all questions. Food was excellent, including desserts.

The atmosphere was great, it's a really cool place. The tuna and sea bass were excellent. The server explained the menu to us like we couldn't read though.

The display fish was not fresh. We ordered black bass and red snapper, they had no flavor. The best part of the meal was the bread.

Amazing service. Lobster and king crab risotto was outstanding as well as the lamb chop. Bottles wines are expensive and wish there were inexpensive alternatives. The appetizer portions of fried calamari and lamb meatballs were small and delectables. The special chocolate tart and sorbet was bountiful and delicious. Waiter had the right amount of care. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Overall, another great experience at Ouzo Bay. The food is outstanding. Sometimes, the place (especially around the bar) can be quite a "scene", but this past Saturday evening it was relatively less so (maybe because of the rain?), but still a really good vibe and energy.

Our service has always been impeccable. This trip could have ended badly, but turned out to be great. Our server, Anna, was lovely and eager, but perhaps a little bit of a rookie. She greeted us warmly and asked us if we'd been to Ouzo Bay before (we had), but then really didn't try to generate any interest in the menu or highlight any new offerings...just pretty much smiled at us and answered our pointed questions ("any new items?", "any recommendations?", "any specials?") with uninspired matter-of-fact responses. She didn't understand the concept of "pacing". Our drinks order was taken quickly, and they arrived very quickly (yay!), but then when Anna asked us for the third time in 10 minutes after receiving our drinks if we were ready to order, we just looked at her and said "no". She got the hint, I think, and gave us some time to enjoy our drinks before coming back (all the while still very genuinely friendly and pleasant). We helped her out by just ordering appetizers first, and then she dialed back the pace and the rest of the meal went smoothly...no rush and appropriate attentivness...she was a quick study!

The restaurant stayed busy but not crowded, and the staff was very professional. Ouzo Bay continues to be a delight, and works well for numerous different types of events: date-night, groups, business, friendly get-togethers.

We had an excellent server and the food was outstanding. They have a great wine list with some moderately priced wines. It is not inexpensive but definitely worth going to.

Service was fine. Food was good. I actually had higher expectations of the food based on the pricing. It was good but it wasn't great. Really nice looking place and nice bar. Just a little underwhelmed for the $600 price for six people.

Been to Ouzo Bay before and never been very impressed. Thought we would try it again and this time it sealed the deal of never going back. To accommodate the amount of people they allowed to book reservations on a Saturday night they thought it appropriate to use seating in their patio. It was 30 degrees outside and maybe 35 degrees at our table. They were fully aware of how horrible the seating was on the patio yet opted to take their chances that guests wouldn’t complain. Long story short, horrible experience that only cemented our relationship with Ouzo Bay to non exsistant.

Very disappointed with the recommended fish entree. Had to use the capers to make it somewhat edible.
Had it removed from the bill.
Unfortunately the date night was not that easy rectifiable.
Worst fish ever from a high end fish joint or any other place.
Not sure why this place is still in business.
I am just sorry that my experience was very sub par hope you heed my warning.
