    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.

    We were underwhelmed by the food. The service was fantastic. Value not there. What did we taste. Dozen variety of oysters. Ceasars and a wedge. escagot and calamari. Entrees filet, crab cakes and chef’s selection sea bass. Sides of asparagus and lobster mac and cheese.

    Knowing ahead of time that this would be an expensive evening, we expected so much more. Times being what they are, with fewer staff members than before, we tried to excuse the servers for their lack of attentiveness. However, some of the absence of proper attention were quite shocking. Our waitress served the wrong drink, promised to make the correct one and return with it. Instead, she served two other tables, took orders from another table, and 30 minutes later, finally returned with the correct cocktail. Unacceptable and she was told so. Sadly, the sea bass was overcooked. We asked for bread, was told it was in the oven and would be served in about 4 to5 minutes. At 20 minutes, we had to ask for it again. We left very disappointed but with a big hole in our pocketbook.

    We eat here for special occasions. I understand the service industry has been hit hard, but this was not our usual experience. Service was super slow. Everyone got pretty hungry waiting and that was with bread/vegetable tray/raw appetizer because they took a long time to come out as well. At that price point, will have to consider other options for our next celebration as this was one to remember for the wrong reasons.

    I was really excited about eating at Oceanaire Seafood Room for Father's Day with my husband, it was our first "date night" in over 7 months. The beginning of the experience was okay, the portion size was good, but towards the end things went down hill. We had mentioned in conversation with our server that we had young kids, and she offered to comp a desert for us after our meal (which was so kind). We finished our meals, waited an extremely long time for her to return to our table, and when she eventually did come back she asked us if we'd like to purchase a desert. I'm not sure if she forgot about her offer or not, but it was very off-putting in combination with the long wait time for our finished plates to be cleared. We still tipped well, because times are tough right now for everyone and I tend to sympathize with servers because I use to be one, but this experience fell short of what we were expecting. I would not return again.

    Always a good experience and we typically make a reservation every month to every other month. It is by far the most expensive place we go as the other fine dining establishments are quite a bit less. My nephew generally gets crab legs but at $125 a pound he decided on something else this time. Juan was a very knowledgeable and attentive waiter, and our overall experience was excellent as always.

    Very disappointed with the Oceanaire. Food was mediocre. Halibut was dry, scallops were just ok. Baked Alaska was so/so. One of my oysters was micro-sized. Server had zero personality and didn’t even introduce herself! Wasn’t worth $300. Honestly, Ocean-Prime is FAR better. Won’t be back.
