We came to Ocean and Acre for a birthday brunch and had a winded time. Service was great and food was delicious, they even came out with a birthday dessert! Highly recommend checking out Ocean and Acre.

Salmon was bland and not seasoned at all and looked undercooked even though I asked for medium well. Manager was great with customer service but I personally think they have the wrong chef. I received another salmon and it too wasn't seasoned much. Also, I wanted mashed potatoes with my meal and I got au gratin potatoes with cheese instead.

Great food and service, TY Brian ! Wish my chips had not arrived 10 minutes after my fish on my fish and chips. Also, had to send my old fashioned back due to it not being “right”… when waiter inquired the bartender replied she “was out of bitters” and apparently cherries too, although they are not crucial. Slight anomalies that are worth noting but affected nothing. I really appreciate Brian and the staff at OAA and will be back !!!

The food was phenomenal but our server Nicole was horrible. She was never around, she did not seem pleased to help us or even let us know what the specials were. We were there over 2.5 hours because everything took so long with her. I do not know if she doesn’t like African Americans…but that’s what it seemed like.

The food was better than the first time we went. I would go back as the burrata was amazing. The calamari was more orca than calamari. Fish and chips was really good and my daughter loved the shrimp and grits. Wine selections were amazing and nice pours.

Tables are very close and nothing to do with Covid I just felt like we were eating together. Servers must be newer but we will be back

Terrible experience! We made a reservation on open table for 9pm, 5 people. When making the reservation they had and additional time slot open at 9:15 as well. We arrived early at 8:50pm and we’re greeted by unfriendly stares from each waiter and all the kitchen staff. A waiter finally approached us and asked what we needed…? I explained that we arrived for our reservation, he looked back at the kitchen staff and told me to wait as he walked towards the back. Next came out the hostess that asked when we made our reservation, I told her around 7 on the app.. she made a strange face, looked us all up and down and said that they were already closed. Not sure why our reservation couldn’t be accommodated, there were plenty of tables and staff. On the front door it stated they are open until 10 and not sure why they leave time slots open for reservations if they don’t plan on accommodating.

The food was good, but not great. Everything needed seasoning - salt and pepper. The service was fair at best. We had to ask for silverware and plates. We ordered a side salad that was delivered with our meal. For the cost, there are much better choices. It definitely wasn’t a $100 meal.

The restaurant is pretty. But the food was just mediocre and very expensive for the setting. The worst thing was the service. It was unbelievably slow and we had to ask for things over and over. It was lunch time and the restaurant was not full at all. So that did not impact the service. And it was slow from the hostess to the waiter. I can’t imagine a scenario where I would go back. So many other choices that are a much better value. Our meal for six at lunch was $250. No alcohol and only one appetizer. No dessert. And the food was similar to a pub style restaurant. Just way too expensive. I don’t like to write a negative review, but I don’t want anyone to make a mistake by going here. If you do, plan on spending 2-1/2 hours for lunch!

First visit to Ocean & Acre for dinner with a colleague. Had a reservation and was seated immediately. We chose to sit indoors and the staff did a good job with keeping some distance between tables. We started with grilled broccolini and the summer gazpacho, both very good. I had the mussels in white wine broth from the starters menu as my entree and my colleague had a fish special. We each enjoyed a couple of glasses of red wine with our meals and no dessert. The service was good and we were not rushed or ignored. Chose this restaurant in part due to the proximity to the hotel where my colleague was staying. If I was dining with friends that live in the area, this is a good option.
