Oceans 234 Ratings and Reviews
It was Fathers' Day so some of the negatives had to do with how crowded and busy they were. Parking was awful! The restaurant has valet parking,which is great but the parking lot was completely full so we sat out on the road for several minutes unable to even enter the parking lot. But once things started moving the attendants were efficient and polite. We had to wait 20+ minutes past our reservation time because, as the hostess mentioned, people were just not leaving. And we waited even longer for our food because the kitchen, I'm sure, was slammed with several large groups and all the other tables all ordering food. Our server kept us informed and kept the drinks flowing and we had a table on the patio with a direct view of the beach. The food was delicious! We had mezze platters and steak and eggs and chicken dishes. All very good. Then the Florida afternoon storms rolled in and we beat a hasty retreat back to Orlando. Overall, we liked this restaurant and if we hadn't visited on a holiday, I probably would have given it 5 stars overall.
The restaurant is situated in a great are near the Deerfield pier with a wonderful view of the water. We where expecting a great experience because of the views but the food did not fair well. The scallops rissotto was overly salty and the shrimp tasted old. We still made the best of it and had a few rounds of drinks which was the best part of the meals. The Desert sounded amazing on paper but once we got it it was not so much. Chocolate was hard and not moist as a cake should be.
We have been going to Oceans 234 for the last ten years. We always bring guests from out of town here and always encourage the lobster mac and cheese. I was terribly disappointed that the recipe has changed to a basic Alfredo sauce when it used to be a four cheese with mascarpone, cheddar, and two others. It came out with white sauce and was so disappointed. The fish specials used to be so delicious but they are uninspired. The corn an crab encrusted snapper with the lobster corn mash is no longer. The sushi bar is no more. The choice of a fish sandwich isn't an option. The menu for dinner is very minimal. We used to love coming there, but it appears as if it will be a lunch only place, which is a shame. We had our rehersal dinner and wedding brunch there in 2013 - that's how much we loved Oceans 213.
Made reservation 3 weeks in advance and asked to sit outside. I re-confirmed reservation and outdoor seating the day before. Upon arriving at restaurant, I was told there was a private event outside. They attempted to seat five 200+lbs guys at a four top indoors. Morons. We left and ate dinner at JB's next door.
We go to Oceans all the time and really like it. However this time it was very different. Firstly the prices seem to have gone up on the sushi. We normally got two small sushi for $4. We were ordering 5 portions and also a calamari for the table. The waiter said that we only got 1 piece of sushi for $4, we said that was odd as we came here all the time and we alway got 2. We asked him to just cut them in half and he made a huge deal of it, went to ask the chef, came back and said they would do it this time but they didn't normally etc. etc. It was obviously a big problem. Then when we got the bill we were charged for more than we got. We pointed this out and they fixed it. Also when it came to time to pay it was very difficult to find him and it all took a long time! They seem to have tweaked some items on the menu and not for the better! The calamari was smothered in a sickly barbecue sauce which was extremely odd, and my daughter whose birthday it was couldn't eat it. Then her favorite dish, the chicken milanese was covered in a sauce, which is a new addition, and was not at all nice. She has had this dish I'd say six times before and it was never topped with that sauce. On the plus side it was her 16th birthday and they brought her desert with a sparkler which I thought was a very nice touch. We love oceans, of course will go back again but were disappointed I have to say. First every bad review of this restaurant!
What a disappointment. My wife and I both had the shrimp scampi . The shrimp was over cooked, dry and tasteless. The broccoli rabhe was tough little twigs, basically uneatible, and instead of parmigian polenta as advertised it came with angel hair pasta. All for $35.00....WOW. If we weren't with a party of seven celebrating my wife's Birthday, I would have returned the dinner
The table was ready on time, my dates dinner was great, she loved everything about it. Mine on the other hand the lobster was dry, seemed over cooked with some hard parts, the pasta was ok and the sauce could have been seasoned a bit more, that was the same thing I can make at home. All in all, she was happy so I guess thats what's important.
Very limited menu. Very expensive for the quality of food. I had Chicken Milanese and I don't recall ever having it so poorly prepared. Our server, Tim, was very concerned and wanted to have it re-made. I declined. Why would a re-make be any different? He requested I select something else from the menu. Again, why? The kitchen had already shown me their poor quality.
Thank you Tim for removing the charge for this meal.
Restaurant underwent a beautiful renovation that truly highlighted their beauty on the ocean side. Parking and valet is still nerve wrecking. Wait staff and general manager went above and beyond in ensuring a wonderful dining experience.
The menu was too limited for me and my guest as well as being pricey.
Great view and location!
Had a reserved time for outside
They brought out a small table for 2 and sat us next to the door, one seat had a rip in the back!
We have been patrons for over 10 years but this experience was not good... seated at a terrible location on a temp table, menu selection incredibly reduced, food average and prices terribly increased! Our waiter however was great!
This place is RIDICULOUSLY overpriced. Our waiter couldn't describe the specials. Don't charge me $39 for a plate of scallops and have the bar filled with people in shorts and backwards hats who can't afford to eat there. EAT SOMEWHERE ELSE
Oceans use to be very good...there is not much on the menu to choose from...and their signature dish lobster mac n cheese was not cheesy at all and the lobster was chewy. The one thing it has going is the view and people watching. Maybe just go for the drinks and appetizers...
