Very expensive, average food for Clearwater Beach. Too many other places on the beach are better, food wise and value wise.

The complementary crab Rangoon , the appetizers and wine all came out very fast but the entrees had a great lag. Pacing the kitchen and the guests would help Despite that my scallops were large and succulent with a flavorful glaze. My partner’s pho was passable. The ambiance was perfect for a romantic meal

Made reservations for my birthday and it was a fantastic experience! Shannah offered me a birthday mimosa and Frank the chef put candles in my chicken and waffles. It was the best chicken I have ever had! They made my birthday beyond amazing! Great team and experience!

Good food, but service was lacking and it wasn’t very busy at the time. Multiple other diners walked out because they waited 15+ minutes with no one coming by, even for drink orders. Our waiter disappeared repeatedly for lengthy bouts of time, asked us the same things multiple times, and forgot to ask about key things, like entree choice after we had finished apps and were just sitting there. The sushi rolls were decent and my entree was excellent. If they fix the staffing problems, this would be a decent place worthy of a repeat visit. For now, I’ll try other options in the area.

We had a great experience. We enjoyed appetizers of skewers and mussels,then sushi and then our entrees which ranged from scallops to lamp chops, ramen noodles to hamburgers. Everything was fabulous’. Oh and then we had cotton candy! Fun for parents and kids. We will be back for sure! Thank you for the amazing service and hospitality.

Beautiful restaurant. We really enjoyed watching the amazing folks in the kitchen prepare the food. My husband who loves this style food was very happy. I am a very plain eater and would have liked to see a chicken fish. Yes, they did say we could order “ordinary” stuff....but I didn’t exactly want to have a burger at such a beautiful restaurant. A dance chicken dish would be great. We will definitely return. Beautiful ambiance for sure!!!

Over priced for the value. Service and food was great but when you evaluate what all you received and just what the food consisted of, etc... it just didn't meet the mark for the price. We stayed in the area a few days and found better value elsewhere easily.

These are high end prices, so I'd expect a more finished product. My experience:
• Service was proficient, not attentive. Took 10 mins to get water, another 10 for cocktails
• Music too loud
• Restroom were located outside the restaurant, which seemed odd and out of place.

Seems like they dont know what they want to be, high end gourmet, or high end tourist?

Didn’t like the fact that they put us in a booth for four in the back of the restaurant & kept our wine far away that we had to wait until we were served, which took very long.

Wonderful dinner at Ocean Hai with my husband, our daughter, and her friend. Service was almost impeccable. The chef sent edamame and mini crab cakes which were welcome and delicious. Much better than a bread basket! The fried brussel sprouts were incredible - not to be missed.

Our entrees were perfectly sized. I had salmon - fantastic. Husband had snapper - which he said was excellent. The girls had potstickers as apps which they claimed were the best they'd ever had. But, the highlight of the dinner was dessert. We ordered two - the cherry blossom and the bananas foster type dessert (forget the name). Beyond incredible and insta-worthy according to the teens. The most memorable desserts we've ever enjoyed. Save room for at least one - you will be grateful.

This is our second time to the Ocean Hai and things do not seem to improve. This visit was for a Valentine's Day sunset dinner. Reservations were made three weeks in advance. They were confirmed on OpenTable and by phone the day before. EACH time a request for a window seat was confirmed. We arrived exactly on time and no window seat was available. They confirmed that we had a note for this request. They tied to put us in a middle aisle table with heavy traffic. Eventually moving us to a booth three rows from any window. No window seat to see a beautiful sunset that night. The meal was from a fixed menu with wine pairings. For the money presentation was good, however the food was average. Each pairing was a pour of less than 3oz. To top it off the waiter was late each wine pairing for the course. We were at least half-way through each course before he was reminded by us to serve the wine. Best part was the dessert. The worst part was paying for an experience that was subpar.

This was our second Valentine's Day dinner at Ocean Hai. We sat outside and the view of Clearwater Beach was unbeatable. The sunset blazed with bright orange and pink. This year's prix fixe menu topped last year's with delicious heart of palm salad, oysters and sea bass. The chocolate heart-shaped dessert with layers of meringue, cookies and chocolate with gold flakes was a work of art!

My wife and I dine here for an early Valentines dinner and had an exceptional time. Food was super fresh, along with great service. The ambience was refreshing as we viewed the Gulf waters crashing in on the shoreline. We ended the night with amazing dessert, with a surprise visit from their brilliant dessert chef, Hogan. We would definitely recommend others to visit this restaurant!!

Sushi is tolerable
Bowl with broth, I recommend not to order it.
It is out of standard. It is just a mixture of vegitable, wrong handled noodles and ridiculous broth

Great ambience! Friendly receptionists and waiters! One of the perfect spots to enjoy sunsets. However the food is not up to par in my opinion. I eat authentic asian food on a daily basis and have been to several upscaled Asian fusion restaurants. Unfortunately we were not impressive at Ocean Hai but this is just us for one meal.
