Seafood Mixed Grill
grilled fish, scallop, shrimp & baked stuffed shrimp with caper beurre blanc & asian butter sauce
Food delicious. Fyi, pan seared scallops could use a little more searing.
Fresh food, plenty of options and great service. I had the house salad, crab cakes, mashed potatoes, and garlic string beans
Very nice ambiance. Service was good. Food was not worth the price. I order the filet mignon, truffle potatoes, green beans, and lobster Mac and cheese. Filet mignon had no flavor. Tasted like a wet rag. Green beans had no seasoning just butter. Potatoes and Mac and cheese were ok. Compared to similar priced places like Del Friscos, Charthouse, Chop, etc this food doesn’t stand up. I’ve had more flavourful steaks at Outback streakhouse and my bill wasn't anywhere near $300+. Definitely wouldn’t go back.
Excellent, and diverse menu. Everything was wonderful.
We enjoyed my birthday dinner tonight. Mo are server was great and attentive along with his helpers. Loved the calamari! The baked Alaska was a spectacular. Thanks
Great service and Hospitality from the staff. I also enjoyed the ambience.
This is not our first trip to Oceanaire. It seems to have lost its luster since our last visit in November 2019. The waiter was unfamiliar with the menu, particularly on how to characterize the different fresh oyster types. We had to remind our waiter several times regarding items that we ordered but he seemed to forget about - such as a wine refill and a side dish of sautéed spinach. The value for money was not evident, particularly for a $43 Black and Bleu Swordfish that was minuscule.
I wish our waiter was more knowledgeable in the menu and wish she would’ve gone the extra mile to speak with the chef.
Excellent as always. Amazing chef—shrimp scampi was terrific. Oysters as fresh as can be and service as top notch as ever.
The food was very delicious and drink were strong but good !
Everything we ate was so good! Was skeptical about getting the crab cake given my Maryland roots but it did not disappoint! Hands down the best spinach I’ve had in a restaurant. The Lobster Fried Rice was also very good. Will definitely be back!
A welcoming, comfortable and very tasty birthday lunch for three. From the moment we arrived to our departure, we were provided with first class service. We (the three of us) were seated in a booth in the main dining area with decent separation from two to three other groups being served. Our server, Luis, was thorough and informative, and far from being pushy, to our delight, to gain our order, since we wanted to read the entire menu and discuss what might be interesting to try on the menu. Without getting into a lot of details as a food critic would do, we lucked out across the board -, chopped salad, clam chowder, king salmon, rockfish, shanghai fried rice and steamed asparagus were perfectly cooked (as requested) filling and delicious. And of course, having never had before, we had to try the Baked Alaska, which, to our surprise, was provided on the house as a birthday dessert. It was simply yummy and so enjoyable that it prompted us to sing, quietly and non-disturbingly, happy birthday. Woo hoo – each one of us thoroughly enjoyed Oceanaire and place it high on the “will return” list.
Great food exceptional service
Very pleasant dining experience during our stay in DC. Would recommend this restaurant to all seafood lovers!
Great service, delicious meal. A bit pricey.
My husband and I have been to Oceanaire before and this time, we decided to bring our friends for a couples date. The food was Immaculate, ambiance was amazing, and to top it off we were sat in a quiet section in the back with only about 4 tables so it was perfection. After enjoying our meal and bottles of wine, the wait staff Elmer brought out our bill and then goes to say “gratuity isn’t included”. I was taken back by his statement but brushed it off as maybe he thought we were first time patrons. Our bill was over $500 for the 4 of us so the check was covered with credit cards and we left a tip of $75 in case. As we are exiting, the same waiter Elmer (like the glue) asks my husband if a tip was left. My husband reassured him that his tip was on table. This angered me to a point where I NEEDED to fully exit the restaurant because had I not, a different side of myself would’ve been displayed. I will be contacting the manager at this location about the unprofessionalism of this staffer on Monday morning. The last time we came, we has a lovely waitress (african american, short, with cornrows). I wish we couldve requested her but I’m sure our table was out of her zone. All in all, the food and quality is always amazing. However, I was very UNDERWHELMED with Elmer.
Today was my first experience and my birthday. I loved the food and service. Will definitely be back soon
Always a great dinner at Oceanaire. Our waiter Pinot has become a part of our family over the years and it was great to see him again, as he provides service like no other. Food was amazing! My daughter enjoyed her 20th birthday celebration.
The food was excellent and the service was superb.
It is so nice to be back out in the world again and how wonderful that our first post-COVID meal in DC was at Oceanaire!! The food was just perfect....unbelievably perfect! And as always is the case at Oceanaire, the staff were wonderful. Somehow they are always there when you need something, but are never intrusive or lingering. They must be clairvoyant! I had the salmon and my husband had the seafood platter, and both of our meals exceeded our expectations. I’m pretty sure this was the beat salmon I have ever had!!! Thanks, Oceanaire, for welcoming us back now that CO ID restrictions are lifted!
The food was not tasty. I did not enjoy it.
Took my bf here for his bday and he had the best time!
I made a reservation here during Memorial Day weekend. It was only for my daughter and I. The hostess stand was the best experience that I had during my dining there. When I was sat, it took over 10 minutes for the server to arrive and greet us. I actually had to wave down a assistant to let them know that I was ready. I gave my complete order as well as instruction on how I wanted the food to arrive. I wanted my appetizer and my daughters food to come out at the same time. That didn't happen. I had the tempura battered soft shell crab, which wasn't too bad but would not order again. I feel for the price point, the service should have been a lot better. I don't believe I would patronize this establishment if I were to visit the area again.
We had a great experience. The steaks are delicious, and the service is outstanding.
They took forever to bring the wine we ordered. They did not have the first 2 bottles and finally did have the third but the whole wine order process took 49 minutes.
We ordered the bread and relish tray but it never came.
Also, I had indicated on my reservation that it was my birthday and that was not acknowledged. They did not make me feel special.
The restaurant was clean, and the service was fantastic. The food as usual was delicious.
Great atmosphere, waiter was friendly. Food was fresh and well portioned.
It was my first experience I loved my food that 22oz steak in still eating it today but it was very tender and juicy
Our server was fantastic. The food we ordered was excellent, including chopped salad, halibut, tuna and hash browns. Baked Alaska unbelievable—wow! Seating location was nice, next to the window, but the booth itself a very tight squeeze for 4 with the table bumping up against us. Only disappointment was the sangria, which was way too sweet as if someone had put sugar into it.
It’s was a great service. Our waiter was well respected and she made sure everyone was fine during our time there.
GREAT Dining experience - took clients there and they were very pleased .
Food was outstanding as always. Service was not good. The waitress forgot our wine until we had finished our appetizers by which time we told her to forget about it. More disappointing than normal because we had wanted to toast a special occasion.
The food was well prepared. I would have loved a bit more with my portion. The ambience was nice but it was very dark. Overall experience was great!
Vivily (sp?) Was Amazing! Food, attention to detail, knowledge and vibe were on point. Celebrated my sister's 18th birthday and honestly we could not have asked for a better night!
Service was a bit slow but the food was excellent. The vibe was perfect.
Another satisfied customer. Always have a great time at Oceanaire.
Service was excellent . A bit pricey for what it was
The seven of us celebrated my daughter's college graduation at Oceanaire. The ambiance, as noted by the recent graduate, was just what she had envisioned - perfect. The service was appropriately attentive but not overbearing. The food was expertly prepared and beautifully presented – simply on point (the chefs and sous-chef are obviously highly trained). Every dish – and we all agreed – was basically flawless (and that is practically unheard of for this group of Food Network junkies). Surprise dish of the night was the lobster mac-n-cheese, triple wow! The texture of the just al dente fusilli pasta and how it hugged the lobster chunks and surrounding cheese, was the surprise delight. The type of cheese they use is just right so that the inherent richness does not coat your palate and interfere with tasting the lobster. We also had the fried calamari (with a great counter- balance coming from the fried cherry pepper slices), scallops w/risotto (w/veal demi), yellowfin tuna tare-tare, lobster fried rice, fillet w/shrimp, seafood grille. Side standout was sautéed spinach but had others. I see that people often enjoy the baked Alaska dessert experience (not really our taste profile although the graduate did get one and it was fun). However, the cheesecake was fluffy-cloud perfection, and the key-lime pie luxurious with hints of sweet and tart and happily not overly sweet (both probably will be in the top 5 you ever have). We also had a dense, rich chocolate torte. For a delicious cocktail that glows blue and tastes great, get the Oceanaire 2.0. Lastly, the value justifies the prices. If you can manage an Oceanaire experience, you just might be hooked!
It was my birthday and I came here to celebrate I really enjoyed everything !!!
The food was amazing and our waitress was excellent!
