The music was a bit loud and it made it difficult for conversation. The overall feel of the restaurant and the menu were very good. Desserts are very large and enough for two. Service was very good as well. Knowledgeable staff.

All the food was excellent, plenty of it and a giant dessert big enough to share.

We ate at Oceanaire on a Thursday night. It was busy, but not crowded. Service was very good. The food was excellent. The portions were big. Huge for dessert, but we were warned.

I had an enjoyable dinner with a friend. The service was ok but the ambiance is quite noisy. The menu isn't too creative but if one is in the mood for fish, you won't be disappointed. It is a but pricey.
