Very nice, we went at opening for dinner so it wasn’t noisy. Service was amazing, we loved our server Bobby B. Clam chowder was delicious, fried lobster was off the charts, I can’t remember the name of the oysters but they were mind blowing.

Our food was delicious; however, we didn't receive great service from our waiter. He wasn't attentive and did not appear to provide the level of service that we observed him providing for other patrons that he served at other tables around us. There was another waiter that was serving another table nearby that provided us with some service (unprompted) while our waiter was nowhere to be found. Also, our waiter didn't offer any info on the menu and didn't provide much detail to questions regarding the menu; however, we noticed other waiters having those discussions with patrons at neighboring tables. While the food was good, I wouldn't return or recommend this restaurant to a friend as the service is definitely not worth the price.

Food was cold and the fish overcooked. The server did not check back regularly. The food and service is not what it used to be yet the price remains very high.

Exceptional seafood but you pay that quality. I ordered the scallops which were good but a little too drowned in a spicy sauce.

By far the absolute worst seafood I’ve ever eaten, especially at those prices. Food was cold. Tasted like it was microwaved. Have lived in Dallas for over 40 years, and this was the first time coming here. Now I know why. Absolutely inedible. We left and went to Al Biernets North so we could actually eat lunch. If you want seafood, go somewhere else.

Had an enjoyable meal with the three of us trying a variety of dishes across quite a menu. The only suggestion for the kitchen is to revisit the Calamari appetizer. Too may fried pepper rings and rather light on calamari for the price.

Service was very good: food waiter (Thomas) was great

Needed to send entree back to be cooked longer; apparently all fish is cooked ‘medium’ unless otherwise specified (would have been helpful to know that when we ordered)

Lighting (in general) could be dimmed. Bar area was a bit too bright; halogen lights in dining area should be more indirect vs aimed @ tables - too bright and actually cast significant shadows on tables/guests

Food was outstanding. Service was OK. Listening to another waiter near our table made us feel left out of the detailed food descriptions and culture of the food. Our waitress was efficient but not a foodie.

Service was slow and standoffis. Reservation was for 5 and they sat is at an oval big table for about 8 so we were spread out and awkward to talk. Appetizers were ok but not worth the price. Appetizers came 10 mins before drinks. We left after appetizers and went next door.

When I first pulled up to the restaurant it was nice to be greeted by the valet and the price was reasonable as I walked in we weren’t greeted but it got a little better after we sat down at our table the waitress was a bit slow but kind and the food needed more seasoning and had spice in almost everything which should be told to customers as they order than that it was alright.

Seemed like the restaurant was very short staffed which unfortunately is the norm for many restaurants now. Our server had at least 5 tables which is too many for a fine dining restaurant. He did his best and was very knowledgeable and friendly. But things seemed to take longer than they should.
Food tasted amazing but was slightly over cooked. Portions were smaller than they used to be.
Overall was a great experience. Unfortunately some of these issues are just because of supply and labor market.
We will be back!

My girlfriend and I have had many wonderful dinners at Oceanaire. However, if this was our first experience, we would never go back. Immediately, we were thrown off by the lighting. For whatever reason, the lights were very bright this evening instead of the usual lighting which made the evening feel cheap. The oysters and crab were great, but the one dish that required preparation was not what we usually enjoy. The lobster fried rice was extremely wet and we told the server and her response was it is a new recipe. However, the table next to us ordered it as well and it looked more like we typically get. Overall a very disappointing evening that could have better spent at a competitor.

We were seated promptly and our server was very helpful and efficient. Our appetizers, salads, and entrees were staged perfectly and we never felt rushed or impatient. Food was very fresh, correct temperature and delicious. All the specials were provided to us by the server and we took advantage of some nice deals that were offered. We were celebrating a birthday and got a (nearly) free dessert for the table. We'll be returning for our next special occassion.
