    They seated us right at our reservation time when we got there. We had the shrimp and grits, rib eye with mashed potatoes, and shrimp scampi. Everything was so good. I asked for a drink that wasn’t on the menu and that was good also. Very nice inside with a bar area and tv with sports on. Not loud, dim lighting. I would definitely go back.

    The food was--as always--excellent, and the space is definitely a good one for entertaining out-of-town guests. My only major issue last evening was the relatively inattentive and slow service, where we waited almost 30 minutes at the start for our server to address the table, and the rest of the evening seemed similarly delayed.

    We are visiting Boston for a wedding and wanted a seafood meal. Oceanside fit the bill perfectly. The food and service were outstanding. My only quibble is that the coffee we ordered wasn’t terribly hot. We would definitely go again if we find ourselves in Boston again.

    Friendly and professional staff. Beautiful, romantic venue with an energized vibe. We had a lovely round booth and tasted many different items on the menu. The oysters, chopped salad, shrimp and grits (lemony), scallops with added lobster, and mushrooms were exceptional. Specialty cocktails hit the spot and the final desserts of berries and a flourless chocolate cake (tastes like a premium box of chocolate candy)sent us home smiling! Do put this restaurant on your list if visiting Boston. Located in the financial district.

    There were not many patrons (Wednesday night @7p) but the service was very slow. I made reservations and was promptly seated in a dark corner of a wide open restaurant. Even the waiter had trouble seeing menu. Great tasting food, with beautiful presentation. Pleasant staff, clean dining and restaurant rooms. I’ll give this restaurant another try.

    I came back after a great meal we had last year. This time complete opposite. Our food after our appetizer came out 1 hour and 15 min later, this is asking our server and the manager. The manager never apologized. But told us we should have told our server we had other plans. Just terrible.... My group having plan does not excuse an 1 hour wait, when other parties around us who arrived after us where eating their entrees. The manager did comp our meal, but we were still hungry and late. We could not eve eat our meal. We had to pack up to go boxes. This place is too expensive for this mess. I would have gotten better service at a drive thru

    Went for a birthday celebration and they were fantastic! The entree portions were odd … some were very small and others huge (easily good for 2 people) would have been useful to know portion sizes. Desserts were also huge! Wish we would have shared.

    We were seated and poured some water , not offered any bread as we saw other tables getting. After about another 20-30 min wait our drink order came . Then as time went by I thought at some point they will come back and ask if we would like to put in orders for food. We waited and waited thinking maybe they were just busy . Our waiter came and topped off a wine glass across from us not once even glancing at our table. I actually had to stop our “server” and asked if we could put in app orders . Based on the lack of service we will not be dining here again . Extremely dissatisfied with the service.

    In from out of town and I had eaten here several years ago and it was great. This time it was TERRIBLE! I ordered filet and lobster, wife ordered Halibut. Both were extremely overcooked the first round. I ordered filet MR and it was well done. Halibut was so tough she need a knife to cut it. Overcooked second time as well! So was my lobster…. This is Boston for goodness sakes. Manager and waiter did nothing for us except take her meal off. Not even an offer for a free desert! We were there for over 2 hours! My wife was so frustrated, which she NEVER gets, so she didn’t even eat. Server was no where to be found when the food arrived so it took probably 5 minutes to even take our meals back to the kitchen. Overall, bad experience and bad service. At those prices I would pick another place. No wonder they weren’t even full on a Saturday night….

    We picked this restaurant as we needed to be someplace quite with good food reviews. It is that. A few items bothered us. At 35 plus entrees and all sides extra, do they really need to charge for bread ?? And the very nice waitress kept trying to take it away during the meal as if it was an appetizer. My crab cake was excellent and my partner’s shrimp scampi was garlicky good. Another no-no was that our appetizer plates were not cleared before the next course was brought and left on the table. And the bus boy said his job was to bring the food not clear it! Seems like some training is in order. At those steep prices, this shouldn’t happen.
