I really recommend the Oceanaire's. Their service was outstanding, the food tasted fresh and delicious, my wife enjoyed her dinner and that was the plan.

The food is fine, but it is incredibly offensive at this price point that the restaurant charges for bread! What is next, charging for water or maybe the glass it comes in?

To start no bread on the table, when asked they pointed to the menu that they was a 2.50 charge for it which I said yes
They brought a half of an 8 inch round roll with some half melted wiped butter and some olives pickles and carrots sticks
I don’t think oceaniere restaurant should be nickel and dimming the customers
The food was ok nothing to brag about
The dessert was horrible

Undoubtedly one of the best seafood experiences around. Other than the usually great service and ambience (love the blue lighting) the quality of the food was impeccable. The oysters were fresh and tasty and the new scallops casino was to die for. Of course all the regular entrees were as superb as always. Like myself, you will keep coming back. Oh, and did I mention the great cocktails...

Birthday celebration for my boyfriend. Food was amazing as usual, but the service was just okay. Considering there were only 3 other tables occupied, service could and should have been better.

I brought an elderly relative who required special attention. The staff, Roco and Karla, hit a home run. Fabulous experience for this man's first time out since covid. I was blown away by their attention and kindness and then there was the fabulous food. Love this restaurant and am very grateful for their extraordinary attention to detail.

Overall I was very satisfied. It’s not cheap but you get what you pay for. Food was inventive and the menu choices made it very hard to decide. Our server(s) was excellent knowledgeable and attentive.
Only negative is that if you’re going to post a dress code enforce it. I was business casual as the web site suggested but guys were wearing baseball hats and one guy I swear iwas in his pajamas.

Food was overpriced and poorly made fish was dried out and flavorless, filet mignon was over cooked as if it was sitting under a heat lamp for a long period. Cheesecake tasted like cream cheese mixed with vanilla extract
For a Mother’s Day splurge it was completely disappointing!!

Great Mother's day experience overall. Service was outstanding. They had a Lobster eggs Benedict with caviar on the special menu for Mother's day which I ordered. It was delicious, but didn't include the caviar when the food arrived. I inquired as to why, but seems like they ran out and didn't exactly inform me of the right reason but offered to take it off the check. Other than that, me and my family had a great time. We always come here especially for their food and service which is always amazing!

We came here for Mother’s Day. Everyone was WOWED by the restaurant! My sister and I got the lobster Benedict, a special for the day. It was absolutely delicious. My dad got the chicken fried lobster. The portion was GENEROUS and he loved it. My husband got the lobster fried rice, not what you would think. He got SOO much lobster and the fried rice was to die for. My mom got the filet mignon with shrimp. She is still raving about it and believe it or not she can’t stop talking about the asparagus! HIGHLY recommend this place for any occasion. Did i mention the bloody Mary’s came with huge shrimp that everyone scarfed down?! If you’re considering this place, stop looking and make a reservation.

Scallops and tuna entrees were both fabulous and flavorful. Nicer ambiance than I expected for a restaurant on the outskirts of a mall.

Everything we had was delicious, and all proportions were generous. Two people can literally order one app, one entrée and a side or two and leave with leftovers. Bonus: ask for Ms. Cor to be your server; she was excellent! Gave us time to enjoy each course without ever feeling rushed, and to have a relaxing meal. And she was always available when/if we - or any of her other customers- needed her.

Was sadly not impressed with the food or service.
The hashbrowns were tasteless and the fish was not impressive - for the cost - it should have been impressive

Setting was good although surprised at number of children (<12 years) present, many running around the restaurant. Staff seemed overworked and resultantly a little inattentive. Food excellent.

This particular location is great for a date! We were seated at a booth near the bar so we were able to fully view the television. For an appetizer we chose the crab cake and it was delicious! For our main course we ordered the angel hair pasta and the lobster fried rice and it was amazing! I would definitely come back.

We arrived on time for our reservation. My family and I walked in to the hostess desk we stood there for exactly 6 minutes before the gentleman acknowledged us. We were in front of him for 6 entire minutes and he continued to take calls. In any business you should always address the customer in front of you and place the call on hold even if it’s just for a minute. I requested booth seating specifically because I was going to be with my 3 year old, I didn’t receive the booth seating. I made the reservation 2 weeks in advance you would think I would have been accommodated. The drinks weren’t good they were watered down. We brought this to the attention of our waitress who brought the manager over. The manager Ms. Rodriguez was extremely hostile and ghetto she has an extremely hostile attitude. Hostile to the point my husband had to tell her listen we don’t have an issue with you it’s the drinks we are not sure what the waitress told you. She basically said there’s nothing she can do about the drinks but her attitude was awful. She also noted that this was a cooperate Restaraunt. I’m not sure what was the point of her mentioning that because it made no sense in why the drinks were bad. Lastly there was an extremely large group of 10 I would say seated 4 feet away they were loud and disorderly which made the noise level unbearable. I will not be patronizing this business again.
