    Once again, an epic night at Ocean. Kevin took care of us, as did server Frankie. Our booth was perfect and the food typically fantastic. The Dry Aged Bone In Ribeye was stellar, as were the drinks.

    Meat on Ocean is a wonderful steakhouse (but try the combo of the Kielbasa appetizer with a small steak, a sausage and steak entree). The clam chowder is the best in the city. No corkage for BYOB wine; but be sure to tip as if you bought it there (the server works just as hard to open your wine as for something you picked off the wine selection). Custom cut steaks are a reliable novelty.

    Arriving for our Friday 1pm lunch we walked into a cavernous room …well appointed but empty for 6 patio tables …we should have left then….owned by the same corp as Kings Fish House but emphasizing steak …the food was both recognizable and upcharged with added items … Our crab legs and wagyu steak orders with sides of whipped potatoes, cauliflower,asparagus and mushrooms while flavorful sent us both to the bathroom numerous times once we came home …the best thing of the experience was the service …

    It took 35 minutes for us to get drinks which was not a good start, but things did get better after that. Pork belly was excellent! Crab cake and octopus were fine but I have had much better. Steaks were all good but the medallions were pity, 3 not much bigger than a quarter each! Cheesecake dessert was good but the chocolate crème brûlée was bad, not what we expected at all. Soft goey top above a gelatinous mass!

    The food was good and I liked the menu options. Relative to the prices, value is just okay. Aged meets section of the menu requires you to size out available cuts and figure out prices with math. No big deal if you don’t care about the bill, but I found it annoying. If it’s cold outside it’s going to be cold inside because they leave all the windows open.

    I had wagyu here before and it was delicious, this time I decided to go with the grass fed ribeye and I have to say I was extremely disappointed. One of the worst  ribeyes I’ve ever had . I talked to my wife about it after and she agreed , but she said she has ribeye here before and it was really good , so I believe this time it just wasn’t cooked properly. It was super chewy , hard , and flavorless . Very very disappointed.

    Meat on Ocean is a superb steakhouse. The meat, as suggested by the name, is excellent. I favor pairing a steak with the kielbasa for a taste treat. The staff is friendly and helpful (w/o being intrusive). The "no corkage" policy is a welcome exception to the usual rule (but be sure to tip as if you bought the bottle on site; the waiter worked just as hard either way).

    This place was great. The food was awesome, the ambiance was great, and the wait staff were so kind and helpful. Loved everything we ate and the Old Fashioned was top notch! We brought our kids since we were celebrating a big birthday, and they loved it as well. They do have a good kids menu that doesn’t show up on the website. It was fancy and nice, but not pretentious, so we felt comfortable bringing our kids. 🙂
