Great place. The food was really good. I was very shocked. A little price but worth every cent!

My wife and I did the date night special for $90. We found it very convenient and simple. The semi prefixed menu made ordering quicker and gave more time for my wife and I to talk to each other instead of staring at a menu. It turned out to be a great choice for a date night spot

They made the experience special. Our server Justin was very nice. However, service was a bit slow for it. It to be crowded.

The food was amazing, we also enjoyed the happy hour at the bar. The Happy Birthday on the menu was a nice touch and the complimentary birthday dessert was delicious. The staff is very friendly and attentive, it was a very pleasurable meal. Thank you.

When we first ate at Oceanaire about 4 months ago the food and service were excellent but this time
the food was lacking. The Escargot was chewy and bland. The Caesar salad had a strange taste to it, so much so that we couldn't finish it, the waiter was kind enough to have the manager take it off the bill. The crab cakes were ok but not nearly as good as they were last time, and the proportions were uneven -- one of my two was noticeably much smaller than the other. anyway, we were very disappointed with our meal that was definitely not worth what we paid for it. It's likely that we will not be going back to Oceanaire again.

The food we liked was great. Not all dishes were hits. In this case the Mac and cheese was soupy and flavorless and the bread pudding wasn’t as great as we were promised. Our waiter was outstanding, helpful with recommendations, keeping our drinks filled, and willing to humor my date’s outrageous demands.

The sourdough actually tasted like sourdough, the truffled potatoes were creamy and rich and my steak was cooked perfectly.

We still don’t know if the the table next to us was a threesome or if he was as their son.

I hope the hostess in training chose to stick around as she was cute and relatable.

I've been dining here since it opened and it has always been consistently very good to great even with inevitable Chef changes along the way. I still love the place and the service is still consistently very good but it feels like the kitchen is slipping a bit on execution. Gritty Oysters (sloppy shucking) and way undercooked Brussel Sprouts and entrees served lukewarm as a few examples. Perhaps just an off night.

The service at this restaurant is always on par, we’ve eaten here quite a few times in the past. Service is still excellent, but food wise, it’s mediocre, I think for the price point, the freshness of the seafood isn’t that great. For that reason we won’t be back, there are other places with lower price point with some amazing fresh seafood.
