Celebrating a friends birthday. The restaurant is very beautiful inside, love the location. Menu selections great. Disappointed for a Baltimore In A Harbor location there didn’t offer a crab soup of any kind. Rock fish imperial was delicious, NY Strip Steak was tasty however, extremely to thick. Lobster bisque just a little to much sherry. Great dessert menu as well. Overall, we enjoyed our dinner and service. Might come back, was not one of my favorite restaurants.

Although waiter was very nice and took the initiative, there appeared to be some lack of coordination with the sommelier and others, which caused delays and inconsistencies.

It led to a subpar experience (rendered palatable mostly due to fact that we were not in hurry) — indeed the worst we’ve ever had at an Oceanaire

The food was a little overpriced and for one poached entree the fish was undercooked. The service was excellent and very attentive. The ambiance was elegant and quiet. Except for the undercooked entree, which I believe was an anomaly, the food was excellent. The manager was very responsive for the undercooked food and promptly addressed the situation by offering a credit and alternative food options to compensate for this mistake.

This was our first time at this restaurant. From the door until the end of the night, the service was excellent. Our server Colin was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great recommendations. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we joined the Landry club! We will definitely be back.

In comparison to the DC location the food was not extra good. That’s why we choose the restaurant b/c the food is much different then the usual. We felt rushed the waiter seemed very hyper and rushed

My wife loves when I take her there. The food an ambiance is outstanding. We always sit at the bar tables. It can be expensive if you get a bottle of wine and side dishes. Meal for two 150 to 200 so not a place I do very often, I use as a special occasion or change of pace date night outing, but we love it.

Food was excellent as expected, service wasn’t bad but it seemed like for the amount of people actively in the restaurant it could have been better. Most disappointed with our seating. Restaurant was empty and we had an open table reservation & got sat right in the middle next to 2 other active tables. Some privacy in a restaurant that was empty would have been greatly appreciated.

Have dined at this restaurants in the past, and have always had a great experience. Visited this past Saturday for dinner and was underwhelmed. One guest ordered the Dover sole, and it was a terrible presentation for a $50.00 entree. Server had to have the hostess come to the table to de-bone there entree. Fish was dry and lacked any type of flavor.

Server was very professional, however limited to the lackluster attention being paid towards the food quality and presentation.

Will not go back.

My girlfriend and I went there for a Valentine's Day Dinner and the food was amazing! Everything was fresh just like the waiter said. I do wish that I received a little more pasta with my shrimp scampi, but otherwise I had no complaints. The atmosphere was modern and very nice and all of the staff that we interacted with were exceptional, especially our waiter. I have gone to quite a few upscale restaurants and the waiter is kind but dull. Our waiter had a sense of humor and seemed excited to wait on us. Overall, I would say this was worth the money and I would go back in the future.

So I don’t write reviews but after last night I can’t find enough places to complain about this restaurant.

We rarely get a chance to have a date night and the experience at Oceansaire was terrible. I am frankly sad that we missed out on a rare special occasion event with them!

I kitchen failed miserably. They seem to think they should send each item out as it finished and NEVER sent our entree. We got a salad, then One minute late a vegetable side dish and 2-4 minutes later a rice side dish. No one though to provide any plates and moveover no one ever brought our entrees!!!!! While our waitress seemed friendly she never checked on us. I waited tables for years and know that you should check back.

Our entree was 110 dollars-service should be better than this.

I was the worst service I have had in years and frankly, at this price point, it’s completely unacceptable. The manager didn’t charge us for the entrees but in retrospect, that even falls short since WE NEVER GOT THEN. He apologized that there were “miscommunications” in the kitchen and they were busy.

Don’t worry thought, with experiences like this they won’t be busy much longer. AVOID!!!!

The food was excellent, but our service was awful. Took 30 minutes for us to even be greeted after we were seated. We ordered a Ginger Ale-got soda water and never were able to get another drink. We had to share water as we couldn't get anyone's attention for refills . The server was clearly not interested in us. When we were asking about apps, he was short. One of our apps never even showed up. When we mentioned it to him as he finally came to check on us (after all of our food was done), he offered to box it to go. When we said we would not like to take a raw bar app two hours to home and eat it tomorrow, he said he would "see if he could get it removed from the check or not". Lobster bisque came with no spoon-we had to get up and find someone to bring us one. Steak came with no garnish, no knife, nothing-just a piece of steak on a plate. We just managed with the butter knife. No one could get drink refills. We asked for a dessert menu, were told the server would be right back, and never got one (waited another 30 minutes). My daughter got someone who said she was the manager to come over, but she just asked if she could get us anything. We told her some of the things, and she said she would send our server over. That didn't happen. The server brought the check and we said we were really unhappy-he said they were really busy so that's how it goes. My daughter found someone else who said he was the manager. He was actually very nice and the the only reason for three stars instead of 1-he did comp our drinks (1 iced tea, 1 ginger ale that was just soda water and 1 glass of wine) and our apps (1 of which we never got). For a $300 bill, it was very disappointing
