First of all we order two cheese plates and were all out! Then we all ordered mAin courses and I ask for some side dish which would have made me happy and most restaurants would have said yes immediately. However I was told no as it was part of a special. Then, a friend I ordered the specials. We were then told one was dropped on the floor so no more specials. Then, another friend ordered a beef dish and we were told they were out of end cut for him. Then we ordered another dish which he couldn’t eat at all .
Overall the food was great once we got it but over a graduation weekend one would think there would be more food and special treats! Figure it out people!
We celebrated my son's graduation. The food was fabulous and so was the service. Highly recommended this restaurant for any occasion!
I brought some colleagues for a business meal. The food was great and the rooftop was just lovely. What made the night was the professional and kind staff including our waitress Mariah who really showcased Utica as a gracious city.
Utica’s premier upscale dining and gathering experience. It feels like an upper east side bistro in Manhattan. The deck at night is sparkling with lights and the skyline of downtown Utica. It affords the perfect view of the Sunset. The food is as good as it gets. Come during happy hour and you can drink and eat affordable from their wide range of appetizers. No visit to Utica is complete without drinks or a meal at Ocean!
Was here for Mother’s Day
Food was good but not outstanding by any means and certainly not worth the $55 dollars a person
This was our first visit and a bit disappointed but will be willing to give you a second chance Hope for a better experience
Nice night would go again
We had,a wonderful time, great food , great service.
Thankful for Kaleb our server and the manager who made my sons graduation dinner a success. Thank you!
We recently went to the Ocean Blue Restaurant for a graduation celebration. The table for our group was ready upon arrival. The staff was very attentive and welcoming. We were all extremely pleased with our meal selection and left with full bellies! I would highly recommend!!
Everything about the dining experience was top notch. Can’t wait to return!
Best seafood restaurant in CNY hands down! We stopped in here on a whim and didn't want to leave! Will definitely be back!
We were seated immediately. Our servers were excellent. Food was also excellent! It was a great experience. Will definitely return and definitely recommend it to friends.
We were in need of a restaurant in CNY and this came highly recommended by a friend. Despite the favorable recommendation, it still understated how good we thought everything was - food, decor, service, you name it. Well worth any trip and we will absolutely be back!
Mimosa with tito's was great and the brunch options are all amazing!
Great food and drinks
Great workday lunch with co-workers for 2 people’s birthday. Great food and great menu and special bday treats that were dairy and gluten free at request
Booked for brunch it was exceptional! What a great place in the heart of downtown Utica!
Delicious food and amazing drinks! Awesome waitresses to entertain our little one while we waited!
Everything was great from the moment we arrived until the moments we left.... only had to wait a few moments for our table and the service and food were wonderful ! The music was a little louder than I had remembered but overall a great time was had by all 👍🏻
Good expirence overall. Not the restaurant to go to if your watching your wallet. Food, Drinks & Service were great. I can definitely see myself coming back again.
Our entire visit was perfect. It was my son's 12th birthday. We were welcomed quickly and given a comfortable booth with a beautiful view. We ordered oysters, had a bottle of wine and a delicious dinner. My son had filet that you could cut with a fork and I had the best skirt steak with a peppercorn sauce I've ever had. Dessert was a chocolate flourless cake... no words. We're a bunch of food critics and Ocean Blue didn't disappoint. They made it incredibly special for my son. Thank you!
My son and daughter in law were in from Maine and we wanted somewhere special to go. The food was excellent and the waitress was very attentive.
Ocean Blue is consistently amazing. The bang bang cauliflower is my favorite appetizer. Fish and chips is the best in town. I just learned about happy hour specials and will definitely be coming back to try it all. Also, the oysters are legit!
Everything was excellent on every level, we eat here once a month and it’s always great. Easily our favorite place to eat in the area!
My husband and I have been here many times and my daughter loves it! We were here for the Easter Brunch. The raw bar is my favorite. We ordered 3 dozen oysters and a dozen clams. My daughter is hooked on the clams... we’re in trouble now. The rest of the brunch was delicious as well. We always enjoy ourselves at the restaurant. We’ve never had a bad meal here
Our family enjoyed Easter Brunch at Ocean Blue. The food was served “buffet style” and overall was very good . The lobster Mac and Cheese was excellent along with many other delicious offerings. Our only complaint was with the dessert which were very plain and I definitely expected more than banana and chocolate pudding although the key lime dessert was good.
For a busy Easter brunch our waiter was not too concerned with helping us. The oysters were not very good. Small and the shells were crumbly.
Pricey but good
Quite the gem. Hidden away in an office building but when you get off the elevator what a treat. The restaurant is pretty and wonderfully decorated. Service was great. Our waitress Ashley took great care of us on what was an extremely busy night. We had concert tickets and she was very attentive and got us out on time. My only complaint is that the host was nowhere to be found for at least 5 minutes. One of the wait staff finally came over to seat the groups that were waiting.
Food was great...server gave some of her favorites for suggestions. Bar service was extremely slow
Excellent seafood and oysters!!! Great atmosphere!!!
Waitstaff outstanding, Chefs Outstanding , Food excellent my only negative comment would be music very loud & overall music that was playing more for a dance club or Bar . Just one fellas musical opinion.
Excellent as always!!!! Great place to return to time and time again.
Awesome restaurant and the food is delicious.
Great atmosphere. Would come more often. However, price is big consideration.
Terrific dining experience. Service is outstanding (the staff members couldn't be nicer) and the food is excellent. Not the cheapest place, I will say that. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
excellent raw oysters. We were there on a Saturday night, and though we had reservations, we had to wait. The bar was packed. If the food hadn't been so good I might not have been happy about all that. But the food and the service were excellent.
Thank you to the manager, whose first name is Jeffery, for make a special occasion 'extra' special with champagne on my daughters engagement. We had a memorable time. Overall food, service and cocktails were great !
We found the atmosphere , location, and service to be very good. Drinks were reasonably priced for the most part, but beer selection could be largely improved with the addition of more craft brews . The entrees were pricey and the fish dinners offered no information on sourcing. For a one time experience I would say go there, but for us, that would be about it.
