My husband took me out to celebrate my birthday, kid free. Our waitress was so helpful. I wanted something I hadn’t had to drink before, and that wasn’t on the menu. She suggested an Aviation martini, and it was perfect. The oysters she recommended were my favorite part of dinner although everything was excellent. We’ll be visiting again for sure!

Food was a bit expensive side - the oysters specially. Not a delicacy or special - simple food with high price

Loved the ambiance. Our server was super and very attentive. Cocktails and food were fabulous. We were there for Restaurant Week with a pre-fix menu. Loved it. We hadn’t been out much since Covid but since we’d both had the vaccine x2 we were excited to go out.

With one exception everything was excellent, especially the service and the oysters. Only complaint would be the Wild Striped Sea Bass Black and Blue which was overdone and a disappointment, especially for the price.

What really impressed me the most was the great service! Our server, Tiffany, was excellent and went above beyond to help me celebrate my birthday! They followed covid protocols well and I felt well-spaced from other tables. The sea scallops and baked Alaska were the delicious! Well worth the money!!

This was our 1st time eating there. We had Chuck for our waitstaff. He was excellent and very helpful. We were a little disappointed that there was no bread basket. The portions were a little small also. Overall it was fun and we are glad we went. Thanks

Tiffany was an amazing server with excellent customer service. It was our first time and she helped us navigate the menu and provided just the right amount of conversation. The cocktails were great, and the tilefish and king crab were to die for! We will be coming back!

10/10 great experience. Me and my spouse had Valentine’s Day dinner on the Friday before the actual holiday. Chuck was our staff and made sure we had a wonderful time. I’ve been dreaming about the food since!

Unfortunately, over time the service has gotten worse, food average and nothing exciting about the experience. Even with reservations and planning for capacity (during covid), we were under the impression that more care would go into the Valentine's Day weekend. That was not the case. Service was slow and overall underwhelming. We did regret coming but did not make a fuss about anything because we considered that maybe things are just not the same as Oceanaire portrays their long running history of great food, ambiance and service.

The fried rice was advertised but was not available.
Our booth was perfect but I didn't get my free birthday dessert.
The table set ups were fine but it seems like he customers are wearing dungy clothes and ugly farming hats during meals, not fun to look at.

It was very cold where they sat us, we asked if they can turn the air down & they didn’t. Being that the temperature was below 0 outside h would think the heat would have been on. The lobster Mac n cheese we had was to creamy with barely any lobster in it.

Outstanding meal, including the service. My mom was in town, and we hadn't seen each other in months - thanks to the virus. Our waiter was patient as we caught up over a cocktail and didn't rush us into ordering. All of the food was expertly prepared. Oceanaire is expensive, but we got our money's worth. Can't wait to go back!

My family had I the best time celebrating my 40th birthday! Tiffany was so attentive and we had the best covid dining experience. The restaurant cleanliness was top notch, the servers masked up, and had clean gloves when serving food. The chefs did an amazing job as well. We had lobster, crab legs, scallops dynamite, walleye Louis and tuna. The management team came and asked how our food and evening went. It was the freshest seafood that I’ve ever had! Good job Oceaniare! You never disappoint.
