    Ok food and the service wasn’t the best; took over 30 mins to clear tables and get dessert. Giving the benefit of doubt because of dine out boston (maybe they don’t have the best food offering on that menu)

    Food is always excellent. Service was pretty bad, forgot side dish as well as coffee, and took an hour and 45 minutes to eat. Made us late for a show, and no excuse as we ordered right away. Disappointed because it’s one of our favorite places.

    Oceanaire is the most special go-to restaurant when our family has a special occasion to celebrate with a trip to Boston! The most wonderful staff who exude joy in the service of the meal. The food is delicious and fresh. Finally, to have our menus personalized with "Happy Birthday, Meagan!" was a gift in itself for our daughter. Thank you!

    I came for lunch with a friend for restaraunt week. Everything from atmosphere to service to the food was an A+! Fransisco was excellent. He kept things moving without feeling rushed. The food was terrific from the salmon to the bread pudding. Highly recommend. What else can I say aside from a beautiful interior. I would highly recommend for a business lunch as well!

    The worse service ever. We placed our order at 7:45 and did not get our food until pm. The appetizers took 51 mins to the table. Look I understand that the kitchen might have been busy but the service could have told us something. He avoided us the whole time during our dinning. It was our first time there and last. All needed was to keep us informed about the delay, I had my 8 year old who was hungry and waited 5ins for calamari.. we had to ask him many times about our food. Truly speaking he does not fit for fine dinning maybe he needs to try McDonald’s. I hate bad service when I’m paying money that I work for. He charged us for drinks that we did not order. He gave us coupons for our next visit the hell we will step our body there..he didn’t even apologize to us.. giving us coupons don’t mean nothing to us.i hate bad service. By far this was beyond horrible. We fine done 2 twice a month.. we wasted our money at your restaurant.. never again.

    Reservation not walk-in Upon entry with my 7yo son the lady waitstaff was rude and argumentative made me feel uncomfortable when I inquired about a familiar manager to see if I could get my special drink. Her tone and facial was harsh and was taken back. Management David came over she slightly defused but he did not correct her behavior. I was seated with my son and waited excess time over 35min to before receiving someone/service at my table. Then an additional 30 before I met my waiter. 45min for my ordered drinks although it was just 2 Shirley temples and Bottle water. More than 45min and having to asking a random waiter walking by. My son food can much faster than mines... by the time my food came I was exhausted and ready to leave. The enjoyment was at zip- zero. My son wanted to stay it was his first time there since he was a baby. This still a common issue at this location with POC not being respected or maybe its just me and my regular relaxed clothing( sneakers and legging/ velvet top with Columbia fleece.) I visited with a non-POC(person of color) and service was impeccable. But then I come myself and like clockwork the service become mediocre. I like David but the experience was not worth what I paid for my meal at all. Francisco was accommodating but was ungrateful for my tip over 25%50 tip on a 130 dollar meal. I always try to give them a chance to prove me wrong but faithfully my favorite place because it's local to my home and just beautiful and serene disappoints me. Better luck next visit and put some respect on my name it was on my reservation. -Minister EM.

    We are from LA, don’t know the area well, saw this on Open Table and thought it looked nice. We had a very bad experience at Oceanaire. The ambiance was sad with bad energy and mood. The soup was served completely cold. The steak was served completely raw, when ordered medium. We had to return two dishes. The staff didn’t seem to care, seems like it’s probably what happens often there. The only thing we liked was the bread. This restaurant was a huge miss.

    Have been here a few times this was not the experience I'm used to. Disappointed, may come back but not in the near future. Steak was not cooked to liking, no one checked on us after the food was delivered to the table so we could have them cook it more. When we finally told our waiter his response was " if I could've cooked it for you I would have"... that's it. Not ruling it out but wasn't pleased this time.

    35 minutes for drinks to be brought to our table was quite ridiculous. Server said the bar was slammed but the table behind us had their drinks in 10 minutes. Enters were good but the clam chowder was mediocre at best and the oysters were the tiniest things I’d ever seen. Ordered the hash brown side dish but the server said it was dropped on the floor in the kitchen and we would have to wait for them to make another. We canceled because our entrees were already there. A lot better places to drop $300 for dinner in the area.
