Oceanaire Seafood Room - Hackensack Ratings and Reviews
A more formal dining experience. The calamari appetizer was excellent, except that the accompanying lemon slices were fried as well. A bit strange. The crab cakes are delicious and mostly crab. Our friends had the sesame tuna and said it was excellent. The service was very attentive too.
The freshest seafood, the prettiest restaurant for ANY occasion, and the best staff you could find. Every meal has been excellent - from the seafood salad to the skate wing. Plus, fabulous desserts that are delicious, and definitely decadent! Highly recommended.
Nomally terrific place BUT service this visit was beyond poor. Waited 15 mins BEFORE we saw sever another TWENTY mins waiting for the drinks we ordered. ( was advised the bar was busy!!) After we ordered our meals food arrived late and was luke warm HIGHLY disappointed this visit. Never was even asked if we wanted a 2nd cup of coffee with our dessert. 5 people $500.00 disappointment.
This was my second time to the Oceanaire at Riverside Square and I was not disappointed. They have a lovely wine list, an obviously caring and talented chef, and a wait staff that does its best to keep you happy without being obtrusive. There was a lively crowd on a Saturday evening, but the noise level was never a problem. And when one side dish did not go over well at my table, it was removed from the bill by the observant manager. It is not likely that you will escape without paying $125 for two if even a minimal amount of liquor is involved, but it certainly is a nice destination restaurant when one needs a treat.
As usual the service was excellent and so was the food. The only thing that I could make a comment on was that our server did not pour a small amount of the wine for a taste before placing in the glasses. While this is not a capital sin, it would make some people cringe. Regardless the wine was just fine.
Oceanaire always offers great service and lovely atmosphere with outstanding seafood. A few special dishes are inconsistent, but appreciate the effort to create new offerings. The staff is always friendly and professional - and the summer holiday weekend pricing is an added treat for Bergen County area.
We read about the special menu for Labor Day Weekend. The food was good and the happy hour was good. However, the service was not great. We were not informed that they were out of an item. I addressed this with the server when I noted that people at the table next to ours received what I was asking for and that the other server was not supposed to do that, but did not offer to rectify the situation. Huge disappointment.
my wife and I eat there at least 15-20 times.
The steak was fatty, tasteless and looked like it was cooked on broiler for hours. Very disappointed since this was always our go to place before. We had many great great meals there. But cook was WAY OFF HIS GAME this night.
Drinks were good, service was good, appetizer was good. But 2 each $60.00 steaks were a waste of money.
