    Very expensive meals for small servings. This was a business dinner and the person that sponsored the dinner was not happy with his meal. He ordered the Chilean Sea Bass, but really didn't think that was what he received. The waitress refused to replace his $77 dinner, and never asked if he would prefer something else.

    We love Oceanaire but after the server took our order he never came back. We wanted a second round of drinks and never got to order them bc we had an event to be at and by the time the server came back we needed our check to leave.

    Jesse and Kevon were amazing people to interact with. They are great at what they do. The food was great: I had the oysters to start with and they could not be any fresher. I followed up with the Chef’s special: the giant scallops, which came with pasta. The scallops were perfectly cooked and delicate; the pasta on the other hand, was a bit dry and the sauce was minimal- overall the dish was delicious. Moving on to the wine selection, they have a great selection, we did run into a bit of turbulence! Two of the wines that would go great with my entree were out(bummer). We manage to come to a selection and it was smooth sailing from there. The Sommelier knew his stuff and suggest the ‘Adaption’ Cabernet Saugvion 2018 and it went great with the sticky pudding, I had for dessert( which is amazing).

    So I gave it a one star for management purposes. We made it reservation several days in advance, and received a phone call 25 minutes prior to the reservation letting us know if we were not prompt they would not serve us due to them closing at the time of the reservation. I feel we should have been notified sooner then 25 minutes prior.

    The only downside was that the first course was fairly slow in coming, but the restaurant was crowded, so it was understandable. The food was great and reminded us that we should come back soon!

    We ordered off of the the Devour Indy menu which was a two week special, It was a great price for this restaurant. When we looked at the regular menu, it was very pricy. I had the calamari appetizer, which was very disappointing. Half of the appetizer was fried squid. The other half was fried jalapeno pepper slices and fried lemon slices. The dips were very good. When we asked the server about it, she said they ran out of squid. Had I known, i would have ordered something else. My wife had a caesar salad which was excllent. Our main courses, mahi mahi and 6 oz filet, were very good. The deserts, espresso chocolate moose and key lime pie, were excellent. Overall, it was a nice experience.

    We were seated at the last table next to the kitchen while there were many open tables throughout the restaurant. This seemed odd from the get-go. Admittedly, we were remiss in not questioning this and asking for different seating. That said, the kitchen noise was apparent and distracting. To be clear, the food was terrific. More on that later. Service was very slow. Our server asked how things were only while passing us on the way to the kitchen. By the time it registered that she was talking to us, she was gone. My wife even commented once, ‘Did someone say something?’ Water refills were not timely enough to keep some water in the glass. My second glass of wine took inordinately long - ordered before entrees were served and arriving when I was half finished with my entree. Time between courses was also a bit prolonged. At the end of the meal as the check was presented, the server commented, ‘It was nice getting to know you’. Odd, as no attempt was made to engage us. If she was busy with many tables causing some of these issues, she would have done well to let us know - though the restaurant itself was clearly not busy. Wine list is excellent including a good quality ‘by the glass’ selection. Bread basket and butter were very good. The complementary relish tray was a nice touch. Tami’s filet was perfectly cooked as requested and nicely presented. The mashed cauliflower tasted great and the balsamic glaze a perfect addition. My Mahi Mahi was flavorful if a touch dry (overcooked?). I loved the mushroom risotto and the fresh diced garden vegetable garnish. Desserts were awesome - both flavorful and hefty portions: Key lime cheesecake as rich and tart as one would like with a perfect graham crust. Raspberry sorbet was truly one of the best we’ve tasted….very fruity. A perfect evening tarnished by imperfect service.

    I've eaten at this location many times. Overall, the food and service were certainly acceptable and above average. But my order for the salmon was not simply grilled so they had to remake it and then it was not medium as I asked, but overcooked. Finally, the simply grilled options are drowned in butter. Also seemed their short-staffed.

    Go elsewhere! The food was crazy expensive and the flavors were MEH. Our server inept, despite proudly telling us he’d been a sever there for 5 years. He filled our wine glasses with water and then forgot to bring wine glasses for our wine. He failed to take our appetizer order ahead of entrees. He described an Asian-style Halibut special with soba noodles and then when the dish came out, it was Southwest style with corn and beans. He apologized and said the menu must have “just changed over”. The grilled octopus had a sauce that I can only describe as similar to BBQ sauce - and it was terrible. The scallops were luke warm. The bill for 4 of us came to nearly $500. I’ll gladly pay high prices for great food and good service. Oceanaire provides neither.

    Really disappointed. The reviews were so good, but the food was average at best despite premium pricing. Steak and shrimp were totally over cooked. Shrimp was dry. Server was very friendly and restaurant atmosphere was good. But food was quite a disappointment especially for the premium price.
