My biggest complaint is 15.00 to park seems like this excessive we spent over 200.00 and then have pay for parking the restaurant was empty at 5;30 and when we left it was half full on lower level. We can afford the parking but each time we go here the parking charge irritates me and cuts down on the over all experience ☹️

This place is amazing! I’m very picky when eating out as I used to be a sous chef, but the food, service and ambiance were impeccable. The scallops were perfectly cooked which most places overcook but here, so good! Our server made great suggestions and my filet I could cut with a butter knife. My friend had the special crusted halibut which was delicious and perfectly cooked as was the asparagus and brussel sprouts, which I usually don’t like.
Do yourself a favor and go!

oceanaire is a nice restaurant. but the food is underwhelming.

lobster chicken fried rice was two little pieces of lobster and lots
of chicken fried rice. not very good.

the dover sole, overcooked and not good. calamari was not really good.

we literally left 1/2 of plated uneaten.

think twice before going.

It’s hard to find great swordfish but I was so disappointed in Oceanaire.
My whole family came for my birthday and we spent over $600 to get salad smothered in dressing. Couldn’t eat 1/3 of it. Swordfish so dry but covered with a lemon butter sauce so strong My swordfish tasted like eating raw lemons. Hash browns were not bad but we’re crunchy on the outside and not cooked all the way inside. On another note the cream style corn and the sourdough breads was great. In closing I paid $600 for great corn and bread. Hey sounds like a meal fit for the state prison.

Very good crab cakes and exceeded cheesecake. It’s very expensive though. And, there were 7 tables of people when they came around and told us they were closing at 9. Thought it was strange to close with tables still full. Overall it was nice though

It was our anniversary. I had a reservation. When we arrive hostess/server greet us and look at her watch. I said that we have reservation. She sit us and said actually restaurant is closed but because you have reservation we take you. Kitchen is closed but you have 15 minutes to order. Server approached our table and we placed order right away. We felt rush and didn’t really enjoyed the food. Dessert came without ice cream because they ran out of it. Very disappointed

The food was good but it took a very long time to get our meal. Being a birthday, it was really nice to receive the complimentary baked Alaska dessert.
The booth by the window was too warm and we asked twice to lower the temperature.
We waited outside for over 30 minutes to get our car from valet even with a mandatory $15 valet charge. Our friends parked very far away and were home before we got our car. That will prevent us from returning to this restaurant.

My mother and I took the opportunity to dine here during restaurant week. Neither of us had been before. We were seated promptly and Meredith was our server. She was fantastic. We appreciated the maturity and age of the staff of the restaurant. We noticed there were no teenage-early 20 year old servers. This definitely helped the quality of service. I had one small petite oyster. It was the best oyster I have ever had. I wanted more but the special menu was already so much food that I decided to wait. We had the grilled watermelon salad, gumbo, salmon, petite filet mignon, and peach cobbler. It was all so delicious. We look forward to coming back again.

We were very disappointed in the food. The 1 $24 crab cake was nothing to write home about and we've had better for much less. The oysters were excellent. The scallops had no sear at all and looked almost as if they were boiled and not pan fried. I ordered a filet medium. It came out almost raw. (I should have known not to order a steak at a seafood place but you would think a higher end restaurant would know how to grill a steak). We had to send it back for more cooking, and of course instead of a new steak (I had cut mine in half to share with my wife) we had the same one just cooked a little longer. The steak itself was flavorless. The service was awesome as was the wine but we will not go back to the Oceanaire Seafood Room again and will visit a new place.

We dined here last weekend for my bday….the food was fresh and delicious, the space was quiet and we were socially distanced from the next table. Our server Thomas was very tentative to our table.

I ordered the salmon and NEVER had any that was that wonderful before. Another of our party had the steak and it was not so great but it IS a seafood specialty place. Two of our party had mahi mahi and they said pretty good but wished they had ordered what I did. :) I hit jackpot!

Our party was promptly sat at our reservation time.
We told them we were celebrating our anniversary in advance and my entire party had menus with happy anniversary printed on them with the date. Our server also gave my husband and I a separate one to take home with a bow on it. They allowed me to bring in my own cake snd they held it in the back until time to cut it. There was an incident/altercation with a large party in the back amongst themselves. The staff seemed to take a minute to respond but once they did the unruly guests were asked to leave.

The night was enjoyable overall. My wife and I had a date night, and we don't get to do that very often. The food was delicious. However, our service was a bit disjointed. At first, everything was coming out very quickly, in fact, a little too fast. Then it ground to halt, after our main course. Dessert and coffee took forever, and the check took even longer. I wouldn't go so far as to say it was bad service, but I have had better at the Oceannaire. We will be back, but ultimately this wasn't best experience.
