!!!!!!!!! BEST MEAL OF OUR VACATION!!!!!!!

Had a wonderful evening! Had the wedge salad (outstanding), Lobster Bisque (unbelievable), Shrimp Scampi with angel hair (to die for), a cosmo (delish) and 2 glasses of Chard (super tasty)! Great service and one of the prettiest/dramatic restaurants I have ever been to! The high ceilings were just stunning. Can't wait to come back here and bring my family!!!

We loved the service, Louie was amazing, super friendly and helpful. The room was freezing cold and it make it hard to enjoy our meal. The crab cake was the best I have ever had but the lobster bisque not so much. Overall good but I expected better.

First I asked the busboy for a Scotch Menu and he told me all of the liquor was listed on the back of the menu which of course it wasn't. Second, the waiter kept recommending more expensive wine when we ordered what we liked. Third, I had ordered the Lobster Tail special and asked it to be broiled. He didn't understand why I wanted it that way and suggested Thermador. I asked him to explain what Thermador was and he said it was a way of preparing the lobster. Really!. The lobster was, it appeared to me, steamed and not broiled. I'm not a big lobster eater but I do enjoy broiled lobster tails. Sorry you did not provide them.

I would recommend the food and the ambiance and the service but I would give a heads-up re: the cost. Great for a business lunch but out of range for most.

Everytime I visit Oceanaire it somehow is better than the last time which was fabulous. We were there for my Birthday celebration and it was perfect. Grace couldn't have been any more attentive, or knowledge about everything on the menu. It is servers like her that take the dining experience from great to awesome. Your bar staff and those who greeted us at the door upon arrival were so wonderful. Please keep up this awesome team.

Expensive and the food was late and served warm but not hot. We got potatoes about 15 minutes ahead of our main courses and they had to be taken back to be kept warm. They offered us free deserts but we were not hungry enough to order desert. The flavor of the fish was good as was the "angry" that is, hot pepper sauce. I sent the first taste of wine back because it was from a bottle that had been opened at least a day and was beginning to get that prune taste. At this price level, everything should have been very good; it was not.

We have tried several restaurants in downtown Boston for business lunch meetings. The Oceanaire Seafood Room hit the mark better than any we have tried in the area. The restaurant has excellent ambiance, noise volume allows for productive business conversations, food is excellent, the location is very convenient and accessible, and the service we experienced including our server and the hostess who sat us was flawless.

The restaurant is an old bank converted into a stately and elegant dining room. We were greeted at the unassuming host stand and guided to our table by a maitre d’. The service was good and the seafood was fresh, delicious and presented in the style a high end steak and seafood house only can. This is a place for special occasions.

We went with friends to take advantage of the Labor Day offer. While the food was very good, the 3-course offering included extremely meager salads. One guest asked for salad dressing on the side, which never came, even after asking a second time for it. Another diner asked for coffee, which was delivered when everyone was done with dessert, so he really didn’t want it at that point. I’m used to better service at Oceanaire.
