We were there to celebrate my son's graduation from law school and his passing of the "bar". A nice touch by the restaurant was that the menu was personalized to reflect this. We were seated quickly and served by a wonderful young lady named Wendy. The drinks were very good, and the food was fantastic. The staff was very attentive but not in an overly annoying way. We all had a wonderful time!

It was a great date night! The service was superior and the atmosphere was magical! The food was good but to be honest it wasn’t anything special. Way over priced for the portions and taste. Overall we are very happy that we experienced this fine dining establishment.

Very disappointing! Had just been a month ago....and was charged reasonable corkage fee - I believe $15.00. For dinner on Nov 1st, we were told upon seating there would be a corkage fee UNLESS we ordered something like a bottle of Champaign; we had ordered 5 cocktails to our ONE bottle we brought in.... they charged us $50.00 to open our bottle of wine! THE. MOST we’ve ever paid ANYWHERE! We even offered (and waiter enjoyed) a taste of our wine. We will NOT be back any time soon!

It was an amazing experience and honestly the perfect place for special occasions AND normal dining! Our hostess was fantastic, the atmosphere was pleasant, the staff are all extremely helpful and friendly. For the price, the experience, portions of food, and the immense flavor makes it justified. This is an unforgettable place that I would recommend to everyone.

I took my fiancée to the Oceanaire for her 21st birthday and it was one of the best decisions I've made. We both loved the place! Right away when you walk in they make you feel like you are the most important people in the world. There wasn't a thing to complain about. Our server, Wendy, treated us wonderfully and helped us through the menu giving us her recommendations. And the food was superb! I ordered the lobster and my fiancée ordered the crab cakes. They were so delicious! Everything was cooked perfectly and was absolutely delicious. And everything was fresh and well-prepared. Additionally, you can see right into the kitchen, so you know your food is treated well. One thing I should add. Do not come here if you are looking for a quick meal. We were there for over two hours. It takes time to order drinks, appetizers, entrée, and dessert. But I am not complaining. It gave us time to soak in the atmosphere, and enjoy our food. By the time we left, I was satisfied and was surprised to see we had been there for that long. I highly recommend this place to anyone who enjoys fresh seafood and can afford it. I can't wait to go back!

Sons 24th Bday with 5 guests total. 1 service person waiting on about 15 tables. Service was obviously poor followed by waitress spilling beer on my guest and myself then waitress simply asks is we needed more towels to dry ourselves off. Table was soaked too. After a half hearted apology, we left. Sad to say but at one point in time Oceanaire was a 5 star restaurant. I would have thought they would have reached out to me to see how they could rectify the situation. Guess I'm an optimist.

I definitely recommend going during covid times as it is was pretty quiet.. before covid times, it was always packed and loud. The food was extraordinary. Very flavorful from appetizers, oysters, main course to dessert. Highly recommend but comes at a cost $$$$.. definitely worth the money

Oceanairre is a fabulous experience. We had swordfish and salmon with hashed browns and asparagus, topped off by a fabulous dessert.
The service is extraordinary... we were totally safe inside and outside the restaurant; our server and the host were extraordinary.
The food was among the best we've ever had... the food was done perfectly, the portions were generous and the selection was really broad.
The ambience was excellent as well... we felt very comfortable, it was private, we had a great anniversary dinner and time alone.
