I am not sure how to rate my experience. The food, service and ambiance all were wonderful....but we both got sick later that night. I was quite ill into the next day. I would like to request more options for vegetarians... at least one or two veg options on the menu...maybe a pasta and a mixed veg plate with rice?

The dinner was OK, but I wouldn't go out of my way to eat there. I know of other places that do a better job.

We will not go there again. Although we arrived two hours before our performance across the street, and ordered simply, we spent a good part of the meal worrying about whether we’d get out on time. One of our guests is somewhat disabled. We’ve had this experience before there. Never again. Small portions of bread and crudités.
Cocktail was good.

Sam(antha) took care of us. She was great. She had me & my date laughing all evening. She recommended the "dynamite" scallops. And they were great. Wine selection was great. Brad gave us an appetizer to try that they were experimenting with. Great place & will be back everytime we are in Denver.

First visit here, the service was excellent, probably one of the best I’ve seen in Denver. The wait staff was courteous, knowledgeable of the menu and had good timing throughout our dinner. The food was good, fresh and prepared well and served immediately after it was ready.

It is expensive and that would be the only reason I didn’t rate it 5 stars. The value is there for sure but I’m not sure it’s worth the price. We spent $225 for two. We had one shared appetizer, two glasses of wine and a cocktail each to go with a moderate priced main course.

I’ll come back for sure, and will request the same waiter (Seth?) who I can’t compliment enough.

Impeccable service. Able to have a conversation without yelling. Food quality has always been excellent, so we will return even though this time my fish was a tad overcooked. Decided not to make an issue of it this time. Just considered it was a fluke.

Every portion of this meal exceeded our expectations. We had drinks, oysters, main courses, and sides and they were perfect. Our waiter provided hands down the best service we have ever received anywhere.

We had an awesome anniversary here! The service was really good, they even printed out personalized menus for us to take as a momentous. The food was fantastic and I got to have my very first Baked Alaska! Overall it was a success!

We had a very nice family meal after seeing Anastasia at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, but even thought I had seen the menu, it hadn't registered how expensive it would be ($360 for 8 people--two children). The service, however, was excellent.

Always the best fresh seafood in town - Shrimp Cocktail, Crab Cocktail, Crab Cakes and Simple broiled Halibut were all outstanding! Our server - San's service was impeccable - friendly, attentive and professional. Limoncello Gimlet cocktail is a summer favorite - one of the best cocktails around! For my birthday - the Baked Alaska was a perfect treat. Moderate noise level and great background music make for a pleasant and relaxing ambiance. One of our favorite Denver dining spots especially for pre-theater!

We’ve had some great - and some not so great - dining experiences at Oceanaire. As a pre-theatre dining spot it’s hard to beat, but the restaurant does such volume between 5 and 7 pm that I find a lot depends on your server. This trip we lucked out - Samantha stayed on top of things throughout, never making us feel either rushed or neglected, and she had a few demanding tables in her section.

All around this was a highly disappointing experience. The front of the house was polite, efficient, and definitely service minded. The food, however, was kindly described at disappointing especially considering the price. The scallops and crab cakes we had were neither particularly fresh or well prepared (both were under seasoned and over cooked). I had been given a gift card which covered about 1/3 of the bill and I still walked out feeling like I had been ripped off.

The server was able to provide us with an abundance of information in regards to he menu, which I appreciated. We were catching a show afterward and he told us not to worry about the time, and kept his eye on the clock for us. The fish was divine, and cooked perfectly! Only wish the naked fish came with more than just the fish.

The food was very good but 4 scallops for $39 & an additional $10+ on a side dish was ridiculous. A meal with a drink, side & dessert will run you around $100 per person & you'll probably be hungry afterwords. I would only recommend this restaurant to a friend if they are OK spending a ton of money on not much food.

Anniversary dinner. Started off a bit rough as we went to bar to have a cocktail before being seated. Waited almost 25 minutes for an order that never came. The bartender finally circled back as the waiter was slammed and had forgotten about us. Thankfully we got James as our waiter at our table and he truly saved the day. It was a wonderful experience due in large part to his making our evening special.

The service was the best I have experienced in Denver. From the moment you walk in to the place they are right on top of taking care of you.
The food was also excellent. Both the Scallops and the Halibut was cooked to perfection.
I will most definitely be coming back.

The clam chowder and warm sourdough bread started off the meal top notch! We had an attentive server in the beginning and then the restaurant got incredibly busy. Our meal took a long time to receive, the side order of fries (which we did order after placing our entree order) didn't come until just before dessert. They were apologetic and comp'd the fries. The entries were creative but somehow missed the mark with neither of our fish having much taste. The dessert, a long waited for key lime pie, was unfortunately pretty tasteless.

Our biggest issue was the price of the dinner compared to the taste of the entrees. There was creativity, we had delicious starter courses and we each had a nice glass of Cabernet. But the price of the meal was expensive for what we got for dinner.

Crowded prior to shows at DCPA across the street, so service was slower than usual.
