The service is top notch and with all the amazing seafood options (get the crab cake appetizer) it would be a shame to discount the fact that their filet is likely one of the top filets in the city! Thank you all again for a great experience!

For the price their food was not special. The calamari was way overcooked and had breaded & fried lemon slices and jalapeños. Who wants to unexpectedly bite into a breaded fried lemon or jalapeño? Not fun.
The shrimp scampi angel pasta was full of red pepper flakes and almost inedible.

Oceanaire is quite good. Fresh fish and great chef. Server was very knowledgeable. The problem is the cost is simply too high. $65 for 1 lb of crab. $55 for salmon that although good would be half the price at Bonefish. Everything is ala carte. Our bill for 3 people w dinner, two cocktails and 2 ala carte items was $325 w tip. Unless you’ve hit the lottery or your on an expense account this place is out of your league.

Excellent seafood dishes. Their specials stretch the culinary imagination for seafood dishes. I had the Diver scallops top with their "dynamite" topping, which consisted of a spicy crabmeat mixture. Although recommend by the waiter, it was not a good blend of taste. The taste of the scallops got lost. The oyster selection was great, however $5.00 for a Kumomota oyster is ridiculous. Wine list is extensive with great selections to pair with your meal. Overall, we always come here for their seafood when we are in town.

The fish was excellent and the restaurant uncrowned on Thursday night, but the service was slow and erratic. Why? Not slammed, not understaffed that we could see. Appetizers came out quickly but then both the fish and desserts were very late. Hope it was just an off night.

This was my first time dining in this restaurant. I had a wonderful expierence. The host was very polite and helpful. He seated us right away even though we were running a bit early. Our server, Allen, did a fantastic job. He was very knowledgeable about the menu, including helping me pick out oysters that I have never had before. His server assistant, I don’t remember her name, was very attentive to our table and very friendly as well. The food was absolutely perfect. We were not rushed, all of our food was prepared and plated in a manner that is expected with this caliber of restaurant. The atmosphere was very nice and very professional and made you feel like you are in a great culinary institution. My wife and I do not get opportunities to have dinner without the kids very often. I am glad that we chose the Oceanaire for our one adult only meal so far this year. Was excellent and can not wait to return. C. Wallace

My wife and I went there for our anniversary. My sister called ahead to pay for our meal and let them know this was a special occasion. We were very impressed when they greeted us with a happy anniversary wish and a table already set up for us. The menu included our names at the top with anniversary wishes. This was pretty much the end of the enjoyment of our experience. Our house salads were very salty. The entrees came out with two rather small shrimp, two rather small scallops, and the lobster tail. It seemed like very small portions for a restaurant that charges $49 for just this entrée. We both just chalked it up to this being a fancy restaurant that goes by quality rather than quantity. Everything was way overcooked. The shrimp was rubbery and way over cooked. The lobster tail was so overcooked that it was extremely difficult to remove from the shell and came out in strands. It was also chewy. The scallops were the only good part but were also a bit overcooked but at least they were tasty. Our waitress came by and asked how things were and I made a comment that it wasn't very good which she took to mean it was delicious and she left. The mac and cheese side didn't come until the meal was over and we had to remind the waitress who told us it was okay because it would be worth the wait. It wasn't. It has very few pieces of lobster, it was not creamy, and it was pretty bland. I finally did say something to the waitress to let her know we weren't happy with our meal and she responded by saying, "I thought you said you enjoyed it when I asked you." She wasn't very attentive to our table overall but she did bring out the manager who apologized and reduced the bill to around $50. We left the full tip of $28 for the waitress even though I didn't feel she was particularly accommodating. However, I don't think I would want to go there ever again.

The bartender was our waiter. He was fantastic. Suggested the ichiban oysters, which were killer. He suggested a great wine and was always there when we needed something. It was busy and he was also taking care of the bar an a additional booth. Food was great we had crab legs, shrimp and hash browns. Perfect dinner!
