Service was top notch. Jesse was our server and was beyond great. We received a free baked Alaska for our 30th anniversary and that was a nice touch as well. They also gifted us menus with happt 30th anniversary wrapped with a string. Another nice touch. We went during Devour Indy so the value was most excellent. We will be going again and taking the whole family.

The food was prepared wonderfully. Several ways to top your fish.
My husband ordered the grouper and I ordered jumbo shrimp scampi. Both dishes were excellent
They were very attentive with service and making you feel comfortable. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about all items on menu.
We enjoyed our seating.
We will be back. Thank you.

Although they pour a very good Old Fashioned, I had to rate this experience well below expectation. Oceanaire is expensive, and with expensive I expect impeccable service and food quality. The service was rushed to the point my client had to ask where his side dish went - it was just taken without asking the table. But perhaps the biggest fail was the food. The calamari appetizer was so over cooked it had a burned taste. In addition, the actual amount of calamari in the dish was embarrassing. Plenty of fried lemon slices and jalapenos' but virtually no actual calamari.

For entrée I had the chicken fried lobster and grits. Again, whomever was running the fryer that night was at a minimum overcautious about undercooked food or didn't known when done was done. The lobster was dry and tasteless due to the overcooking and dark dry consistency of the breading. The south doesn't fry like that.

Ultimately, $600 later for 3-people we left underwhelmed. A tip from your Uncle Ron: skip Oceanaire and have a great time someplace else twice.

Our experience was superb from start to finish. We highly recommend this restaurant, and, when you go be sure to ask for waiter, JEFF! He was fantastic! Attentive but not overbearing, he anticipated our every need. 5 stars!

Service was questionable. Didn’t bring bread (after asking twice), or oysters that were ordered. She seemed annoyed by my girlfriend. It was our 4 year anniversary, so we slightly regret choosing to eat here. Felt like we were a burden. Restaurant was slow at the time we were there, also. She may have just been having a bad day, so I hope all is well.

Service aside - it was fantastic. Chef is incredible. We might to choose to eat elsewhere for special nights moving forward.

Food was heavily sauced on delicate shellfish. Caesar Salad was minced instead of cut or torn leaves.

The food and the service were excellent. The server was very helpful in making choices. I was served an excellent martini. The prices were very high, even though there was very little to find fault with.

Staff and location was great. I ordered steak that could have used a bit more flavoring. My fiance ordered scallops which she enjoyed. Price was about $50 per person, but when you take in the atmosphere and experience, the price is t too bad. Would recommend to anyone that is in the Indianapolis area to try at least once.

My wife and I were out on a much needed date night. When we walked in we were greeted by the hostess and promptly seated. A staff member followed with water and our server followed up by complementing us on our dress attire. I can assure you, we have never been anywhere quite as high class as this restaurant, and felt like a king and queen. Our server was very friendly and answered any and all questions. Our food was well prepared and very delicious. Yes it was a little high on price, but you pay for what you get. My wife and I felt that the overall experience was excellent. We will most definitely return to this establishment.

My husband and I went to Oceanaire this weekend for the limited steamed lobsters. We called ahead of time to reserve the lobsters. Each of us had a 2lb lobster and it was very delicious. Started with couple of oysters, we shared a wedge salad and grilled asparagus. Flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Prime downtown location and great atmosphere. Service was little slow but we enjoyed our entire dinner.

An excellent option for seafood in Indy. Service is always excellent, and the atmosphere is great. Food is quite good but trends toward a little bit of sweetness across the board. You should try it.

This was a birthday celebration and I hadn't been here for a few years. It did not disappoint. The lobster bisque and clam chowder were wonderful. The bread is to die for and appreciated that more just kept coming. The ambience is befitting of a first-flight restaurant. The Prosecco was a known and excellent choice. (I was, in truth, surprised that the selection list wasn't a bit more extensive but we were happy with the choice.) We three split the scallops and the halibut entrees as well as the creamed corn and grilled asparagus. The pilaf and veggies that accompanied the halibut were also tasty. There are only 4 scallops, which isn't an abundance for the price but we had more than enough food. Because it was my birthday, I got to choose a dessert which was beyond scrumptious--chocolate torte with raspberries and whipped cream:) The waiter was friendly and informative. My one small annoyance was that he said (multiple times) that we could "take our time because he was there until 10" but he then would show back up rather quickly and ask if we were ready to order, etc. Had he just checked on us to see how we were, that would have felt less hurried and nicer. Then while I was still eating and drinking my wine, he cleared the table including scraping the crumbs! I understand my companions were done eating but this again only made me feel as if I was "holding up the progress" of this meal. This is not inexpensive and I would have preferred a bit more time to feel I could luxuriate, but it still was an enjoyable evening out.

Best seafood restaurant in Indy. However, I think we got a new waitress who was quite disorganized and the Dover Sole was cold by the time she got everything she needed to debone it. She should have had that all ready and table side before she brought out the fish and disappeared for 4 minutes.
