Briston, our server was outstanding. We went for restaurant week and the food and portion sizes were very good. The oysters were fresh and delicious. We were seated by a window which we like very much. Overall a very pleasant experience.

Great experience. We came for restaraunt week so it was great value for the money.
We had a sitter cancel & had to bring our 1 year old. They were very accommodating without disturbing the restaraunt ambiance

Food portion small and not flavorful. Seafood fettuccine with tomatoe base- was watery- terrible. Fried calamari really delicious. Our waitress neglected our table, we had to flag her down for water for the whole table several times. She definitely didn’t deserve her tip. She never smiled as if we irritated her at first sight. She made us feel unwelcome and uncomfortable. Disappointed

I wasn't impressed. My calamari was chewy and undercooked. The crab cakes were ok but I've had better for half the price. And, cranberry bread pudding was underwhelming. The price are ridiculous for the quality of the food. Our waiter was condescending and to top it off they ran out of garage validation tickets on a Friday night. Needless to say we wont return. Not a place for foodies.

Btw - my husband's short ribs were so bland and barely acceptable.

To me, Oceanaire sets the bar very high for all other restaurants, not only in the Inner Harbor; but all the northeast. Food and service were both outstanding. Will I go back to Oceanaire again (to me this is the measure of a truly great restaurant)? The answer - you bet. A must stop whenever I am in Baltimore area.

We went for our anniversary dinner with friends. Unfortunately it was a very quiet Sunday evening and the restaurant was nearly empty, a contrast from a few nights earlier when we were told it was packed. The emptiness explains my low rating for Ambiance.
The food was good; it is a la carte so you pay extra for vegetables etc. Between us we tried the Shrimp Scampi, Crab Cakes none were exceptional.
They comped us a free dessert for our anniversary, and the desserts we ordered were also good.

Very intimate atmosphere for NYE and not too noisy. Limited menu had pretty good options, ( Stimp and grits appetizer was duperb!)though I felt that the price was a bit inflated, possibly due to the holiday. Overall, a great way to end 2019 and begin the new decade!

Great meal on NYE 2020! Service was spectacular as was the value. Our meal was outstanding but the sides, creamy mashed potatoes and sauted Spinach were lacking. Spinach was undercooked and the potatoes were almost not worth eating.

Overall it was a solid 4 star meal.

I was excited to eat at another establishment and when arrived was seated in the back by the serving exit. We were forgot about a few times and our wait team was not as attentive as I thought they could have been. Just an overall disappointing experience.

Pricey valet parking and the food is overpriced but pretty good. Service was wonderful. Chilled crab from Indonesia? C'mon folks...what about the Chesapeake Bay?

Christmas evening. Dramatically understaffed. Management with poor attitudes. Server disappeared for 15 - 20 minutes at a time. Will not return to any Oceanaire ever.

Not my typical experience at Oceanaire. Had to wait even though we had reservations. Staff was stressed out and made us feel bad for them. Food was not delicious. Tables were not cleared for long periods of time. Had to wait a lot. Manager was blasé. Valet pleasant.

We were seated late. Pressure from server to order and told if we didn’t order by 8 we wouldn’t get food, that kitchen staff leaves at 8. People were still coming in and if you weren’t planning to let people have a regular dinner experience you shouldn’t have opened for xmas

Waiter was less than attentive for a typical Oceanaire experience; however, probably in part because it was Christmas and busy.

We love this restaurant. The food is not only fresh and well-prepared, but there is evidence that the chef loves and cares for what he does. Everything I've eaten here is outstanding. Needless to say, I've ordered only the seafood here, so cannot speak for their other entrees, but the seafood is stellar.
Members of the waitstaff have been here a long time, which says a lot; they are well-trained and caring. They take care of the people, but they do not hover and are not intrusive.
Management is caring and extremely knowledgeable.
Valet parking is a plus, and the fact that there is enough room between table for a walker is an added asset.
Highly recommended for that special or holiday dinner

Customer service was excellent. I took my son, 17 years old and daughter, 12 years old this Christmas holiday and they loved the food. The atmosphere was very lovely and the holiday music was a nice touch. Valet parking was prompt, friendly and service was excellent. I will highly recommend this restaurant to family, co-workers and friends.

Our first server was so rude and nasty but the hostess switched us to Whitney and she was so sweet. As always Oceanaire’s food was good. The fried lobster was good. The other people in my party had the shrimp scampi and the sea bass. No complaints with the food just wish the first server was nicer.

We try to get here at least 3 times a year and have the food is always very well prepared and presented. The staff always makes you feel appreciated and they make our visits very enjoyable. Even with the Holiday rush on and several large groups dining that night, the service was still attentive.
