Went during restaurant week, so my friend and I were able to try this place when we normally couldn't afford it. The service was amazing. My friend was looking for a wine to fit her taste and one of the employees suggested one of their wines that she ended up loving (she can be a very specific person). Food was very flavorful although the fish could've been better seasoned, but still yummy. The calamari was delicious and my mixed drink was great. If price is something you're concerned about definitely look it up before you go if it is not restaurant week.

I came for restaurant week and the food did not disappoint. I also ordered some oysters and the server was very helpful in recommending which one to try. A great place for a special occasion.

The calamari was very heavy. Although the decor is gorgeous overall, we were seated in a back room that nearly as elegant.

Restaurant Week finally went here. So disappointing. Food was cold when served and after reheat was still not hot. Server offered us a round of drinks while we waited for food...then charged us for them on the bill. Never again

By far and away, the best dining experience I have had in a very long time. From start to finish, there is nothing that I would change. Valet service was prompt and easy, our small group was enthusiastically and genuinely greeted, choice of seating offered in upscale & interesting building, wait staff highly professional yet very friendly and helpful with questions about the menu. Our dinner choices were all different yet portions were appropriate for the pricing and each person was very pleased in every way.

As always, the service at Oceanaire was impeccable. We had Bridget and she was perfect. Even though she had gotten the Entrée wrong and served two of the entrees cold instead of heated. She was gracious in correcting everything and coordinating so that everything arrived on time the second time around.

The host/hostess has much room to improve - greeting felt cold and impersonal, as if we were a bother.

The service was OK at 1st then after waiting for our entree we realized that my wife's order was wrong. They sent it back to get her what she actually ordered and it took another waiter to offer to keep my steak warm. After we waited for my wife's right order to come they brought my steak back out which was lukewarm and did not have a any of the Butter would uses that it originally came out in which I was looking forward to. The steak was good none the less however for $60 steak it should have come out as it originally came out and then warmer.

Made a reservation and took 45 minutes to seat us on Valentine’s Day. Food was poor (sirloin and shell fish grill) with the exception of the crab cakes and wedge salad. Drinks were good but the main dishes, management and service was extremely disappointing.

Relatively expensive for what it offers. Service was average, the manGer who brought us the food did not know what he was bringing. Overall way below expectations. Drinks are very weak.

Food was good quality. Shrimp were cooked perfectly. However, the service was terrible. I did mention it to the Manager and honestly he did not handle it well. He said he found it hard to believe. So in other words did he think I was making this up. I would not go back to this restaurant. Too many other places in the area that have it all together.
