This was the best service I have received in a long time especially with a party of 6 ladies! Tim was an awesome and amazing server! Not to mention the food was amazing with big portions to share. Desserts were phenomenal! We will be back!

First they were out of the Chardonnay we wanted...brought more expensive one. 3 of us wanted cedar plank salmon...they were out of the cedar planks for cedar plank Salmon. Interesting that this was the least expensive item on the menu. Prices are quite high and on a Saturday night at 7:00pm, you wouldn't think they should be out of anything on the menu. We won't be going back.

The sweet potatoes were served cold. The clam chowder had something in it that was spicy. The scallops were good as was the Dover sole. Service was spotty.

Ordered swordfish special. It was well prepared and served hot. Portion size was 1/2 of what I was expecting which is the primary reason for the 4 star rating. Room was overly dark. Server did a nice job of making relevant suggestions and being attentive.

It was a nice night out. With it being $1 oyster night, we felt the service was a bit slower. We sat at one of the smaller tables (2 person) in the cocktail area vs the 4 person table we normally get. We ran out of room as the server/busser were slow to clear our dishes we had completed. But overall we enjoy coming on Sundays for a nice evening out.

Heather was an awesome server! Energetic and fun. My parents like her more than they like me. Food was great the place did not miss a beat in customer satisfaction and attentiveness without being to up in your face. My waitress handled my sometimes crude dad with kindness and finessé.

After a misunderstanding, the manager, Alan went out of his way to give us the best experience possible. He and our server Jeff were very attentive and accommodating to all our needs. The food was very good and the desserts were fabulous.

It took 1 hour for our appetizers; we were there for 1 hour and 50 minutes. We had theater tickets at 7:30 and thought arriving at the Oceannaire at 5:30 would give us plenty of time. Wrong. We were in such a hurry to leave that we didn’t realize they charged us $3 an oyster on $1 oyster day. How can we call and prove that we weren’t ordering the $3 oysters 🙄 not saying we won’t go back, but will be sure to not have plans and check our bill before we leave.

We have dined there several times and never had poor service. However this experience was disappointing due to poor service from our waiter. We were there much longer than expected due to service. We definitely will request a different waiter on our next visit.

I don't plan to return. At $200 for two people and only one glass of wine, the meal was very expensive for food that was not enjoyable. The bread was literally burned black on the bottom and my monkfish was a small, overdone, very dry, tasteless entre. I specifically asked for a recommendation for a succulent fish like a Chilean sea bass (which wasn't offered). The waitress and staff were attentive. Too bad the food was not worth the price. Very disappointed.

Food was good but not great. Server was very passive aggressive. Felt extremely rushed. They took daughter's appetizer away before she was done with it. Never asked if she was finished just took it. Never asked if we wanted more bread or drinks. Server was not friendly just going through the motions not personable at all. Again tried to take one of party's dessert while he had the spoon in his hand, didn't even ask are you done. He put his hand over his plate and said I'm still eating this. Won't be back. There are other seafood restaurants this one not impressed with.

Took over two hours to get our food. When we first sat down we ordered drinks, took 20 minutes to get served. Server came over after 30 minutes to take our order, another drink was ordered along with appetizers, it was close to 20 minutes before the drink came, I asked about appetizers (soup and shrimp cocktail) told he was waiting on shrimp cocktail, brings soup and 5 minutes later the shrimp cocktail. Our quest ordered another drink. 10 minutes later that appears, I ask where our food was and again hear that kitchen is backed up. After a couple of minutes he brings my entree (which is a cold salad) and not the others. After another 10 minutes, I go to the manager and complain, he looks into it and shockingly the other two entries appear.
Terrible and embarrassing evening!!!

The food was excellent ( great swordfish and octopus).
Our waiter Andre was excellent. Good guy good waiter.
The problem was we were seated not in the main room but in the hallway behind the main room. It felt like we were seated in a closet.
I thought an open table customer would be treated better.

As always, we got a superb service when we visited here for my wife's birthday. They threw in some extras for the occasion, including the spectacular Baked Alaska. Not everything went as expected (my wife's lobster was overcooked), but our server and the manager were quick to remedy the situation and compensate us for the trouble without us even asking for it. In the end, my wife did get her perfectly cooked lobster, and my halibut was also fantastic. We love this place!

Food was cold. Server did not know ingredients in food when asked. Actually misrepresented the ingredients. Salads were very weak with the toppings that should have been on them.
Won’t recommend or go back

The quality and consistency makes this Oceanaire worth the visit - always a great selection of fresh fish from different seasonal regions. Bit on the expensive side, but by comparison to the choices in Indianapolis, not much better with its wide range of choice.

A very uneven night for what used to be a very reliable restaurant for a special occasion. The lighting was remarkably dark. Even after we commented on how dark it was to the hostess, we were told it was not allowed to be adjusted. Per the “owner”, an odd choice of words considering it is a corporate restaurant. Our server Anderj was sensational, considering how many curve balls were thrown at him. He was running around like an Olympic athlete, too many tables? Our dinner order was delivered by different staff than our waiter, not his fault. It was not what we ordered, when it was remedied, some of the dishes were not hot. At this price point, the food was underwhelming. The waiter was profusely apologetic and accommodating. He did the best he could under the circumstances. Sad to say we are in no hurry to come back.

I can't believe I made a reservation for this restaurant. The service, food, drinks, ambiance--horrific. We each had a cocktail and split some appetizers. The shrimp had been frozen, the calimari was rubbery and intermingled with hot peppers and the salad was limp. Might have been it was so dark I could not see what I was eating.

No one came to check on us throughout dinner and we left thirsty after the check was dropped off at our table with not even any pleasantries. Might also be the result of being placed in the back of the bar in the dark. I couldn't even see my guest across the table. I will not be back.
