There will be no typical composed dishes, instead an upgrade to seafood fine dining with many of the dishes served a la carte but with a compound effect, so there will be multiple flavors and sometimes different types of seafood on one plate.
Ocean 44 will feature an elaborate glass expo kitchen with nearby seats, a large bar and two dining bars, flexible private dining rooms, the main dining floor and several other options.
Had a great time celebrating my son's birthday!
We will definitely come back!
Went for my wife's birthday, and what an excellent choice that turned out to be. First, a warning to the cheap - clear room on your credit card and don't go into cardiac arrest at the prices. Yes, it's expensive. But, more importantly, it is worth it. Considering what you get and how you're treated, there is really good value to be had. The lobster escargot and the tomato and crab stack were superb appetizers. The Chilean sea bass was remarkable. The scallops were the best I've ever had. Our two sides, ua gratin potatoes and creamed spinach, were magnificent. The wine list is truly excellent and the prices very reasonable. Lest I forget, the bread is out of this world - fresh baked "pull aparts" that we're so buttery. Service was spectacular with only a single flaw - they didn't ask if we wanted coffee with dessert. It was our first time here, but most assuredly won't be our last. Oh, and they called me the next day just to see if everything was satisfactory.
We went there for my wife birthday and had a great time. Bar tender was so awesome we decided to stay at the bar. Ate some great off menu items. Whole experience was great!
Great time and wonderful margs
Service was slow and below average. Our drink and appetizer order was taken within 15 minutes of being seated. Did not see waiter again for 45 minutes after that. He finally returned to take our dinner order. The food did not come out of kitchen for 1 hour. We again did not see our waiter until 5 min before our food was brought to table saying he was sorry it was taking so long. Food was decent. The restaurant decor and arrangement was just ok. For prices that expensive I would expect better service.
Phenomenal service and attention from our server! Food is awesome and will make it a definite visit when I return
Fabulous! Always amazing service! Beautiful ambiance
Could not have been happier. Went for the 1st time on our 5th wedding anniversary, and were treated magnificently. Steven the manager, Greg our server, and everyone there made it a nite to remember. Very grateful. Highly recommend you get there as soon as you can, because the food is as great as the service.
A truly memorable dining experience. From the moment we arrived, everything exceptionable!
Great atmosphere. Incredible food and knowledgeable staff.
Celebrated my birthday at Ocean 44. A handwritten birthday note was placed on the table when we were seated. Nice touch! Many of the same menu items as with Steak 44, however expanded seafood menu and larger menu selection overall. Had the meeting no lobster rolls. Lobster was fresh and bun was soft and fresh, a little too much butter however, as it oozed out when you took a bite. I had the sea bass and it was excellent. Very fresh taste. My friends had the salmon and the filet, both cooked perfectly. Service was friendly, approachable and consultive in nature. Fun group waited on us. Dessert...butter cake all the way! Always my favorite part of of a Steak 44 meal.
Fantastic! Service and food were amazing!!!! The crab was incredible! Five stars!
If I could rate higher than 5 stars. I would! We celebrated our 20th anniversary and the service was amazing! We were greeted with a complimentary glass of Proseca and dessert.
This is one of the more recent iterations from the same group and it is very similar to the predecessors. Very reliable.
While the food is very good and the setting is wonderful, the service is annoying - interrupting conversation again and again to "check in", trying to clear plates before we finished eating, and generally just being intrusive.
Next time I will tell the waiter not to interrupt at the start of the meal, and will let them know I'll signal when I need them.
If you love seas food, this is the real deal.
Always great service, great food , enjoyable atmosphere! Very consistently fantastic!
Great meal- wonderful service.
Everything about this place is perfection. The minute you walk in the door you are drawn in by the ambiance. The music was amazing, not too loud but enought to lighten the mood. The team approach by the staff was a well oiled machine. Tony, Chianti and Joe were amazing. Great personalities, attentive and knowledgable. The manager was amazing too. The food was incredible. Not one bad bite. We ended our girls trip in a great way! We can’t wait for the Ocean and Steak 44 restaurants to come to Philly!!
The crab is amazing and so is the key lime. Great wine selection and the staff is attentive. Not noisy at all so you can hold a conversation
Absolutely fabulous!!! Amazing food and service. The entire staff was so friendly. The restaurant and ambiance was beautiful. We will be back!
Hands down, the finest dining experience you’ll have! Every detail done to perfection. It’s very expensive but you’ll still walk away knowing you’ll want to return.
Service, food, and ambiance were top notch. I had the lobster rolls and Chilean Sea Bass. Both great tasting with the rolls being the best. My date enjoyed the crab cakes. I've already recommended Ocean 44 to my friends as I really enjoyed my visit.
Had a wonderful meal at Ocean 44. The food was fabulous and the staff was exceptional. Our waiter, Roy, was such a great benefit to the evening. He was beyond friendly, and had impeccable skills to lead the meal. Thanks also to all the support staff, including Ezra, for making every thing happen like a well-choreographed ballet!
Great place to celebrate our anniversary...from being greeted and given a card..to also complimentary prosecco and dessert to celebrate our 5 year anniversary! Bread was sooo hot and delicious, GIANT shrimp on the shrimp cocktail...perfect steak and lobster tail! We also loved the whipped potatoes, corn saute, and asparagus!
Music does no overpower, so conversation can be heard...lovely environment too.
Only complaint...bit too much salt on a few items.
Great time. Especially enjoyed the oysters for cancer charity! They should do a better job marketing the oysters for charity at the table!
We enjoy all the Matro's Family restaurants. Ocean 44 team went out of their way to make my son feel extra special on his first visit to Ocean 44. A wonderful evening, always great food and service.
The whole experience was amazing from the staff to the food. Our first time there and the staff was very helpful and took care of all we needed. The food was outstanding from start to finish, I loved it all.
Entrees arriving while we are still eating starters, unacceptable
Everything from start to finish was superb! The attention to detail was impressive; the handwritten note from management acknowledging our business milestone that we were celebrating and the complimentary dessert were special touches that made the experience that more special!
Outstanding service from Lindsey and the rest of the staff. Food was excellent. Great birthday celebration. Highly recommended.
My husband and I went to Ocean 44 for our anniversary. It was our first time and we were very pleased with everything. The food, service and drinks were excellent. I felt very special and the staff went out of there way to make our anniversary very memorable. I will definitely be back!
Fabulous seafood and great staff giving attention to details. Nice upscale ambiance and decor but without pretentiousness. Great overall dining experience and we will definitely go back.
From the moment you step out of your vehicle everyone that you interact with has first class service. The new your strip I had was beyond this world the flavor and temperature was perfect. The walnut old fashion was crafted perfectly and I enjoyed every sip. The peanut butter cake was beyond my expectations it was rich but it was overpowering at all. It blended together nicely. Overall the best experience I have had at a restaurant in a long time. Will be back soon.
Awesome raw bar! Great menu with a great variety of seafood and other entrees
As always amazing
Food is extraordinary!!
But we love that every single time that we’ve been there the service is INCREDIBLE!!
We love every single server out there!
This was a perfect place to celebrate a birthday and the conclusion of another year. The ambiance was intimate and we had a fantastic table with a view of the kitchen. This dining experience made for a memorable birthday celebration!
