    Service and quality of food were top notch but the ambiance was below my expectations. The entire restaurant was so dimly lit I asked if the power had gone out. Seriously! The only lighting in the bar were we sat were the lights behind the bottles of liquor on display. Unfortunately, that’s a deal breaker for me. There are plenty other quality seafood restaurants in Indy that have both atmosphere and quality entrees.

    Oysters were great. Lobster tail was great. Mashed potatoes were average. Halibut was overcooked dry and without flavor. The tab was way overpriced. We will not return.

    We were seated immediately and after a few minutes a young man come over and told us that our server was talking care of other guests at the moment. He explained the menu to us and took our drink order. Upon arriving at the table I noticed it was set with both water and wine glasses. Having ordered a bottle of wine I expected to be brought the wine and two new glasses fresh from the bar. Instead he poured wine in to glasses that were sitting upright at the table, for who knows how long; in addition, the glasses were covered with water marks and as I picked up my glass there was something crusted on the outside. We then ordered a caprese salad; bad choice, mealy tasteless tomatoes. If you can’t get good tasting food don’t put it on the menu. Our meal was nothing to write home about. My husband ordered the shrimp fried rice with deep fried lobster. Rice mixed with bagged frozen vegetables; complete with little square carrots, peas, and green beans. And this was one of the chef’s specialties. We know times are tough right now, but if you are claiming to be an upscale restaurant and demand upscale prices then please deliver.

    Prices for entrées have skyrocketed to ridiculous levels, far higher than other restaurants. Also, we are adults and do not need the head server to read us the menu and attempt to up-sell the most expensive items. Food quality remains superb.

    Dined here for the first time in a very long time. My husband was hungry for the pork chop & he loved his (Hint - anything done to the pork chop, like just blackened, is an extra charge). We started with the Caesar salad, it was good & our server split it for us at the table because we were going to share it. The salad is large so it was good for sharing. I asked about bread & was told there was a charge for it. We were fine with that but in addition to bread, which we did order, they came out with a dish filled with all sorts of things we did NOT order. On our bill, it said bread & relish. We did NOT order relish but perhaps Oceanaire doesn't do one without the other, we don't know because we weren't advised of the relish. We ordered the creamed corn to share as well. There was enough there for 4 people & although it was 'creamy', it was more watery than what I would call creamy. I ordered the salmon, well done. It was on a plank, which is good but it was rather greasy & paired with a type of lettuce & beets that also had some sort of greasy dressing, it was too much for me. I was able to eat the salmon but not the other. Overall, I was disappointed in my meal. My husband really enjoyed his so it was just a matter of opinion & what you ordered. For a total bill of $153.53 for 2 people with NO drinks of any kind, in my opinion I feel this was overpriced for the quality of my meal.

    Service was slow but I believe short staffed in kitchen, once we talked to manager food came out. Only other complaint was the fact that they charge for bread basket, which is insane for the prices they are charging. Manager told me to take it up w corporate, which is a lame response. I think manager should take it up w corporate. When you are waiting for entrees over 20 min it’s nice to have a slice of bread or a roll.

    The atmosphere started well but the noise level increased to almost an intolerable level because of the volume of the music in the dining room. I assume, as with other fine dining establishments, the prices have increased but I think the the costs here are outpacing the inflation rate. Our server was attentive and informative. I don’t know if it was an error or not, but I ordered the Ritzy Halibut but the receipt said Ritzy Sea Bass so I am not sure I got the entree I ordered.

    Our server had duo responsibilities, working as the bartender which created our first greeting after 15 mins. Then our first drink not being delivered until 40 minutes after being seated. This staffing issue when there is a National convention in town should have been addressed prior to booking the restaurant to capacity and creating mediocre service. Our little corner of the restaurant was freezing cold temperature. The server stated it had been hot in Indianapolis the previous couple of days and management had turned on air conditioner and there was nothing which could be done about regulating the temperature, despite the fact it was only 50 degrees outside. Thus, had to wear my coat throughout dinner. The mediocre service (which was a direct result of duo responsibilities not server fault) and the cold environment does not take away from the masterpiece dinner served. The chef created the most ingenious miso grilled Chilean SeaBass and Sesame Encrusted Yellow Fin Tuna and the Baked Alaska superb! We would dine there again but, definitely request a table away from the bar area and where layers of clothing to make the even perfect!

    LOVE OCEANAIRE! BEST Seafood in Indy. Crab meat appetizer is always excellent. Oysters Rock are different but savory and enjoyable nonetheless (cheese is sprinkled in top instead of melted as are other ingredients. Lobster Benedict was great as was the halibut, scallops, surf and turf, and lobster tsil sides! And the 4 of us still couldn't pass up dessert. Key Line Pie is HUGE - had to take 1/2 home, toffee pudding with ice cream and whipped cream is to die for, and the creme brulee ce inhr deepest dish any of us has seen! Not inexpensive not the quality is great as was our waiter Rick and hostess Ruby.

    Food was excellent; however, I was disappointed where we were seated. The restaurant was not busy for a Tuesday night and our small group was seated next to a large table that was extremely loud, drinking, etc. Our group really could not converse as the group next to us was so obnoxiously loud. I feel like we were seated to accommodate the next server in line vs making the best choice for us. Thanks for listening. Mike

    Beautifully appointed Excellent food and service...Jose and his team were kind, considerate. knowledgeable..did not hover or interupt our meal. It was a wonderful first experience. Bread was warm and delicious...I would have preferred to just purchase bread and butter.. the relish offerings seemed mundane in comparison to your high standards on ever other item . Crab was fresh and delicious...might consider a less spicy alternative for those who don't tolerate it well. Scallops were seared to PERFECTION Risotto was luscious with bursts if flavor from the vegetables. The finish of that Champaign sorbet OMGoodness.... Very memorable meal...thank you!!
