service and ambiance were great. food was wonderful -- had the crab cake, chopped salad, and parmesan truffle fries. a bit pricey. definitely recommend if you're looking for that kind of experience.
Eight of us went to the Oceanaire Seafood Room for an after conference dinner. The waiter was attentive and knowledgeable. The noise level was not bad, though it was difficult to have a conversation with someone across the table. The food was excellent.
My husband and I were disappointed with our visit to Oceanaire. It was our anniversary, and we had hoped for a better experience! Our waiter was not at all attentive, and when he did appear at our table, he talked incessantly. The food was good, however, I ordered the Dover sole, which I have had numerous times at other exclusive restaurants. At Oceanaire, the price was ridiculously high, especially for the amount of fish that the waiter removed in the deboning process: essentially, the entire middle of the fish was removed because it was "raw": unheard of!
I think service was just off that night. Our server was friendly but repeatedly forgot to bring the wine that was included in my wine flight. Also our check was wrong. We were double charged for a steak that we had to send back. I also felt like there was a miscommunication on what we ordered and it was deliberate. We ordered the king crab legs and I thought we were coming off of the appetizer menu. Instead he recommended one off of the entre menu which was twice the price. While it was delicious it was an unexpected charge. When we receive the check he said “was there a miscommunication?” My steak was the wrong temperature. When we sent it back no one offered to give us fresh sides so that our meal would be the same temperature when it was finally ready. Also the table behind us was very loud. I’ve been here before and enjoyed the experience.
We were enjoying DC. Excellent food and wait staff.
Delicious food, excellent service. Door left open so it was cold in the restaurant. Expensive but worthwhile.
We had a superb experience, celebrating a birthday with good friends. Our server, “V,” was among the very best we have ever had. She was attentive, helpful, experienced, and provided all the extras one would expect from a top restaurant. The food was fresh and beautifully prepared and presented. We will definitely return to see if a second visit is as satisfying as the first.
This was a date night for my wife and I and I must say we thoroughly enjoyed our experience there. Michael was our waiter and he was phenomenal. His food and wine pairings were on point. The food was excellent. This will be one of our go to restaurants on future dates.
The food was fantastic. Our server Mike was the best. I recommend the hash browns ala Oceanaire, crab cake and baked Alaska.
Fabulous! I went here while pregnant with my husband prior to a show at the Warner Theater. Service was quick and the food superb. We’re going again!
