Old school efficient and attentive service with well informed recommendations on menu items. Food is always good. Sometimes slightly too salty.

The ambiance is very nice, but the food arrived luke warm and the crab cakes I ordered weren’t completely done. It also wasn’t 100% lump meat. Our waiter wasn’t as attentive as she should’ve been

The restaurant clean and the servers we great. Half the restaurant was not compliant wit the dress code and some people smelled like marijuana near my table. My filet was over cooked and lobster mac was cold upon arrival. Not the best experience for top shelf prices.

I love Oceanaire! It is absolutely beautiful inside - like being on an ocean liner. The prices are commensurate with the quality of the food, but the food is magnificent and the service is impeccable. The cocktails are amazing - the wine list is amazing as well.

The food was adequate, but overpriced. The lobster Mac n cheese was very good. The staff was very friendly. The resturant has a limited menu because of Covid which is very understandable. However, enough items are on the menu to choose from.

Our dinner experience was top notch. Our server was friendly, professional and knowledgable about the specials. He provided excellent service without being pushy.

The food was expertly prepared and was very tasty. I had the lump crab cakes with a 6 oz filet accompanies by the lobster mac & cheese (out of this world!). My friend had the Coho Salmon and asparagus, which was also excellent.

The restaurant was quiet as it was a Monday night but the ambience was very nice, due to the lighting and greeting by the staff. I highly recommend this establishment.

The host was rude and commented on my outfit & even stayed at our table for 5 minutes going back and forth about it, i put on my reservation that it was my birthday which no one acknowledged, & even once my family reminded the server he came out with no enthusiasm and even tried to charge me for the “birthday desert” he brought out. Also we explained how the bill was to be split which he didn’t get right either. The food was good but definitely not worth the price & i frequent expensive restaurants. I will not be returning. I recommend del frisco’s or ocean prime instead.

The host was AMAZING!!!!!!

The only downside was the waitress felt the need to remind us how much we tipped her and stated the “suggested gratuity” was listed on the receipt. She spoke too soon not knowing we were tipping her an addition $60 on top of the $43 that we had already given her. Very poor taste.

As usual when dining at the Oceanaire Seafood Room, we were kindly welcomed. The service and meals were once again excellent. I would recommend any seafood lover to make a reservation and experience the exceptional quality of what a restaurant should be.
