The experience overall was good, but I was brought the complete wrong meal and charged $15 extra for it. This was after our server even saw on he menu which item I wanted because I pointed it out to ask how big the filet that came with it was. She even asked how I wanted my filet mignon cooked to which I responded medium rare. Instead, she brought out some sort of sliced, well-done roast beef with scallops. I clearly did not order this (I ordered shrimp and filet mignon). It was still a fine meal but not what you’re expecting when you order filet mignon. I also ordered Pinot noir wine to be brought with my filet. She forgot and kept saying she was getting it. She did not bring it out until well after he meal was over. In fact, she brought it along with our dessert. She was nice, just not with it. The bartender actually had to come over and clear our plates and get us more water. The manager came by at the very end and was very nice, but by that point it wasn’t even worth it to bring all this up. Had our server come by at all during our meal, we would have told her about the wine delay and the food mix up but we weren’t given this chance. Overall, fine experience, but not sure we will be back.

First time at this restaurant. Everything met or exceeded our expectations. Some nice touches including a dish of cold veggies prior to taking any orders. The food was prepared extremely well with some unique approaches. The stuffed flounder was wonderful with crabmeat included in the stuffing. We will return

The waiter was very attentive and made sure we were pleased. The food was brilliantly displayed and incredibly good.

This is a very lush restaurant with perfectly prepared seafood in great variety. I had been here for two business lunches in 2017 (i.e., expense account - it's pricey) and was so impressed by all phases from décor to food to wine to service I decided to bring my wife for Valentine's Day. Predictably crowded even at 9:30pm, we ordered charred octopus (appetizer) and entrées of scallops and red snapper with a side of grilled (giant) asparagus, plus a sparkling Coppola rose ("Sofia"). The appetizer arrived, but the wine wasn't served with it. After nibbling on the octopus (excellent) I finally had to flag down a waiter to check on the wine. Wine arrived, we were happy again, but then nothing for 25 minutes. I finally got up and tracked down our waiter (whom I had had previously and really liked) and asked "what's up with the entrees?" and he spluttered that they would be right out and ran off. Back at the table; ten more minutes; the entrees arrive. My wife asks for an explanation; waiter: very sorry, all my fault, I forgot to put your order in. "Unacceptable". But then, the entrees were perfect; and our waiter offered us free desserts and cappuccino but we were still a little huffy and ask for the check. We actually start to talk about what we're going to write in a negative review, but then the manager arrives at our table -- Understands there was unacceptable delay in the service (no Val Day excuses); won't you please accept two desserts to go [we did that]; then he hands me his card and asks if I would ever decide to return to Oceanaire to please call him in advance. Reflecting on the way home, we admit that all phases of the meal, including the service if the delay is subtracted, were 100% good. Our Valentine's Day experience was redeemed by the staff's humble professionalism in the face of a mistake; we enjoyed the (gigantic) take-home desserts; Oceanaire is still on our list of restaurants to visit when something special is called for. You will love it.

Valentine’s Day dinner! Service was excellent. Raw bar items were so delicious. I would come here again for cocktails and the raw bar alone.

Valentine’s Day Dinner...delicious seafood, wonderful sides, attentive service, very responsive to food preference, lovely ambience. Delightful evening from the greeting at the front door to the valet parking service at the end. We will be back!

I've been to the Oceanaire on 3 different occasions. Very professional and courteous staff, they bring your meal quickly and it is delicious! Love the Lobster Bisque....a bowl is large and only $12. Highly recommend the Oceanaire!

We went here for Valentine's Day and were not disappointed. We have eaten at the Washington DC and Orlando FL locations for over 20 years and have never had a bad meal. We recently moved to Boston and were delighted to find an Oceanaire restaurant here. The setting is delightful, in an old bank building, and the food was delicious. I think this is the best location of all.

Excellent on all counts!

The food, drinks, service - everything was perfect. Management and staff go out of their way to make sure that your dining experience is a memorable one. I can’t wait to go back!

Focused on seafood, yet I had the steak filet - cooked perfectly. Sides are optional and additional - sort of a Capital Grill, yet more focused on seafood. Reminds me of the formal dining room on a cruise ship. White jacket servers. I have been three times and I'm never disappointed.

The dining room is classy and comfortable. The oysters were the best I have ever had. They were served icy cold, which is the only way to eat oysters! My crabcake was out of this world as well, as was my husband's stuffed flounder.

I was underwhelmed by the ambiance, food, service and cocktails. It was 9pm on a Saturday night and the place was absolutely dead. We were one of 3 tables. When I asked the waiter about wine, he said 'I like this one this one and this one. OK?' I said I like Cabernet Sauvignon and he said, oh, we have a lot of those.. look in the menu. Just would have expected some sort of selling to happen on their extensive wine list, or even questions to help me choose one based on my tastes. He didn't describe any of the food or drinks to us in any way that was helpful (except that the desserts are HUGE - he was right). Perhaps he was new or filling in for someone. My filet was very salty, the lobster mac n cheese was so so buttery and covered in ritz crackers. It reminded me of somewhere that I would bring a client to on a weeknight to try and drum up new business. And truthfully, I bet you that it is quite busy there during the week given the location. Just wouldn't recommend for a date night on the weekend.

This place lived up to our high expectations. The service was superb and the menu varied. The food was delicious with surprisingly large portions. My wife had seared scallops and we expected she’d get three - there were six. I had stuffed shrimp and there were five of them. Both our meals were wonderful. Oh, and the lobster bisque should not be missed. Our waiter was very attentive. When I made the reservation I mentioned that it was our wedding anniversary. Our menus had “Happy Anniversary” at the top and as we were finishing dinner the manager came over to our table with the menus rolled up and tied with a ribbon and a card signed by the employees that were working that night. How cool is that??!! He gave me his card and invited us back before our next anniversary - and we will be there.
