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.
Best service of the year. Roy was outstanding.
We had a very good salad, an excellent fillet mignonette. Risotto had way too much cheese and the rice was over cooked. Edward Mussels were not good, lacking broth and not right consistency.
Crabs cakes were good a bit too rich.
The best were the complimentary dark chocolate cookies, one of the best cookies I ever had.
The service was very good.
A wonderful celebration of my sons’ birthday and 2 graduations!
Ocean 44 is now at the top of a growing list of fine dining establishments in Phoenix. It was my fourth time last night and it continues to impress as high end, upscale dining with service to match.
Wonderful evening of divine company and delicious food!
My wife loved her king crab. Mine was the special of the night, an Alaskan seabass topped with a bit of king crab. The quality of the fish was fine but the sauce was not much more than melted butter, little to no flavor. While I likely will go back I certainly will explore other options and ask more questions on the sauce. I have had much better and was disappointed. Clearly a surprise since it was the specialty of the night, which should be taken off the menu in my opinion. Otherwise a very nice restaurant.
Excellent in every way but we would appreciate it if they would enforce a smart casual dress code.
There was a table next to us of 8 people and children. The adults were wearing shorts, tees and a few were wearing large backpacks. It lowered the class of the restaurant, which is otherwise, a very classy and sophisticated restaurant.
A good review here; but not amazing. Overall, food was solid good; not exceptional. The front desk had a little attitude on getting a reservation but there were alot of empty tables inside? Once inside, we requested a table which wasn't being occupied and told we couldn't have it and it sat empty all night. Our "original" waitress was excellent but she "left" in the middle of the dinner and we got a new one which negatively affected the experience-not something that should "go down" at that level of dining establishment. Also, and perhaps my biggest problem, is that there seems to be like there is an attitude (like they have the best restaurant in town) from certain members of the staff; not everyone, which needs to go away- they should go back to being being overly appreciative to their customers. Personally, I have no desire to rush back; not because it was bad, but because it should be exceptional and exceed my expectations which it clearly didn't. Additionally, and most important, one shouldn't feel like the like the restaurant was doing me a favor by letting me walk in their door and dine with them.
Amazing!!! Our sever Roy was top notch👍🏼
The food is incredible and always the highest quality. Probably the freshest sea food in town. The service is also amazing.
Overall experience was ok. Love steak 44 and was excited to try ocean 44. The place is amazing! Great job on the design. Our server was a alright guy but overall his service fell flat and he was at times rude and had a slight feeling of he was “over it” attitude. Not the most inviting attitude. We work in the service industry at two prominent spots and know great service. We will be back hoping for a better experience overall
Best sea bass I’ve ever had. New York strip was amazing.
Padrisimo lugar, comida y servicio excelente
Unfortunately , we were disappointed with our meal. The food all came out Luke warm, not hot. It was all VERY mediocre. The steak was great , but all the seafood was nothing special. When you are paying over $400 for a party of 5, you would expect close to perfection. We will not return. It is a beautiful restaurant , but we were very underwhelmed with our meal sorry to say.
Dinner was amazing, service was excellent. Our fav night out!
The meal and service were flawless, and they even followed up the next day with a phone call to check in. For my money, they and their sister restaurant Steak 44 are the best steakhouses in the Phoenix metro.
again, a great place. they start you out with hot rolls in a hot skillet. always get a seafood app, changed it up with meatballs, OMG. sea bass is always the pick, but they had a special salmon , the best ever.
Outstanding dinner for all of us. Best new restaurant in Scottsdale
Great food and ambience. Loved the way the restaurant has natural light coming in so it’s not your typical dark steakhouse.
First time visit. Brought a visiting friend from Ohio who was duly impressed. Room seated in allowed us to watch the chefs and servers while dining. Server Drew reviewed the expansive menu in detail and he is very versed on the offerings. All had seafood, scallops, Alaskan Halibut and Big Eye tune. Portions fairly large and sides were shared. Overall a great experience and will return
It’s the perfect place to celebrate a special occasion!!!! Everything was wonderful. The best crab cakes I’ve ever had!!! And the lobster roll was better than you get in New England. Amazing!!! If it was more affordable we’d be there often.
The food was fantastic! Cool atmosphere. Maybe a bit loud. We'll definitely go back!
A great experience all the way around, from the exceptional service to the delicious food.
The food was quite ordinary and not particularly good. The crab cakes lacked consistency and were made with tiny cheap crab pieces, and not the larger chunks. I didn't enjoy them at all. Perhaps because I lived in Maryland where they know how to make them.
The service, ambiance are outstanding. My wife and I are amateur chefs.
I had to send my scallops back because five of the half dozen were barely luke warm and one was actually cold. The staff immediately corrected the situation and what do you know, the second entree of scallops was perfect indeed - the last one I ate was just as hot as the first one.
Be careful how you cook shell fish because under-cooking can make your customers ill and sometimes very ill.
The key lime pie was exquisite.
One comment. I realize how passionate people are about sports but in a very upscale restaurant like yours, if I were running it, I would remove both TVs from the bar area. It lowers the standard of the restaurant to have your customers enjoying exquisitely prepared entrees and then turn to the bar area and see basketball games.
For those who want sports then go to a sports bar like Marerle's sports grill where they serve BBQ and hamburgers but not at Oceans 44. GET RID OF THE TVs please.
Fine dining prices but not fine dining flavor. Corn and bread are very sweet. Fries are very oily. Salad is very wet. Raspberry vinaigrette did not taste like either ingredient was present. Other foods were good though not delicious including branzino filet, wagyu, deviled eggs, Mac n cheese, and cauliflower.
The only criticism is the music selection...the likes of The Rolling Stones doesn’t seem the best choice for this experience.
The best restaurant in Arizona. All the food was good. Large portion size
Thank you so much for making our engagement dinner so special. Your service and food is top notch, the ambiance was classy and lively. We really enjoyed it and can’t wait to come back! Thank you again!
Absolutely amazing evening dining at Ocean 44! The food was fresh and delicious. The waitstaff perfect- attentive, informative and friendly!!
We will be back! It is a beautiful restaurant.
We did have to wait a bit- only because the people before us were enjoying their meal and time so much. The host/hostesses checked in with us at least 3 times to see if we’d like to be seated elsewhere. Excellent service
We've been to Steak 44 many times, and we knew we'd like Ocean 44. It's fabulous! Excellent cocktails, the Lobster Rolls and Mussels were great appetizers, the scallops and crab cakes were also great, as was the wine list and the au gratin potatoes. No room for dessert, but they did give us some nice cookies. We highly recommend Ocean 44!
FANTASTIC! Highly recommended! Definitely on the pricey side but very much worth it !!
Amazing meal & service. Priced a bit high for overall meal.
Mother ‘s day and birthday
great place, nice service iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii
Beautiful restaurant, quite a scene, energetic vibe of a mixed crowd of young sexy people and big groups out for a great nite.
Service is well trained, maybe a bit pretentious (I know how menus work, thanks) but the food and wine selection is really good.
Everything we had was excellent, and the striped bass with crabmeat special was outstanding.
May be the place to be for the in-crowd, but I think this place will thrive for years to come.
Absolutely perfect on every level and in every way! Highly recommend!
Fantastic menu and offerings. Beautiful and professional open kitchen. Phenomenal service and food was deliciously prepared and presented.
