Compared to last visit all pretty much the same, except service not as good. Had to ask for things that should have come without asking; halfway through first course I finally requested some bread. I will be back anyway.

Fresh, fresh seafood is all you could ask for at Oceans. And that is what you get. I enjoyed maguro, yellowtail, octopus, and oysters. What I loved on the wines side of thing, is I found a local NY Riesling and if you know your NY wines, you know this one is fantastic! Another to note was from Oregon. Slam dunk! Pleased don't take that backed oysters off the menu! Or come up with a spring/summer version of it. I'll be back! The Fishioinista®

Great experience for our anniversary dinner! The seafood tower was amazing and the naruto roll was the best I’ve ever had. We got the black cod and sea bass for entree, and we finished everything! We will definitely be back again!

the oysters on the half shell were excellent. the service seems to be less than 5 star. warm, attentive but a bit too casual for the setting. the main course, a bass with a miso glaze was a little too heavy on the glaze and had too few of the vegetables in accompaniment. the house mock-tail was delicious. they gift box of carmels and was mediocre. the after dinner jelly candy was mediocre. I think they have some more experimenting to do before they are top quality that they seem to be shooting for.

Freshest extensive and unique selection of highest quality seafood sourced from the world over! Succulent fresh scallops and flavorful langoustines were two of our favorites from the daily catch section, while toro topped with uni and caviar from the sushi bar impressed. The kitchen expertly delivered dish after dish of food skillfully and thoughtfully cooked to enhance and showcase the essence of each fish/seafood item. Ambiance, service, decor and vibe = A+

I celebrated my birthday and introduced the restaurant to my friends. They loved it as much as I do!! The food is exquisite, we did many small dishes and rolls to share, two entrees with side to share and three desserts. Every dish was better than the one before. The service is impeccable. An absolute must! Just say “Athina sent you😊) You will have a great experience and the cocktails are delicious too!

Tried out this new hotspot last week, and my overall thoughts were that it was really good, but not special enough to make me come back as opposed to trying someplace new. We had two fish entrees, both of which were cooked perfectly and had lots of flavor, but for the price, there was no "wow" factor. The cocktail list was small and creative enough, but I opted for a couple whiskey offerings. The spirits list is diverse and impressive. Prior to our entrees, we got one sushi roll (excellent taste and texture), the toro tartare (good, but I was expecting a LOT more for the hefty price), and the diver scallop special, which was one of the best things I have eaten, and will expect to eat, all year.
The ambiance was vibey, and there was a buzz throughout. The service was very polite and considerate, if a bit slow at times. The bottom line is that I would recommend a visit for sure.

We had a beautiful table and thought the restaurant had wonderful ambience. We ordered several things as it was our first time there and we wanted to various dishes. The sushi was small and therefore pricey for the size, but tasty. The tuna tartare was good, but not exceptional. Beautifully presented though. The snapper fish entrée was good, but small for $42 and a bit dry. The side order of mushrooms were excellent. Dessert was lovely. The mature d was terrific as was the front staff.
As we live in this neighborhood, we were hoping to love it and make it a go to. Unfortunately, given the prices, it doesn’t meet our criteria.

A delicious meal with wonderful service. Can’t wait to return. I left my bag under the table with my wallet in it. By the time I walked to the car they called me and informed me they are holding it for me.

I went for dinner with two of my business partners on Sunday night. I was already at Restaurant Oceans and I recommend the place. We wait for a table about 10-15 min, so one of my partners was senior and it was hard for him to wait, he asks the manager how long will take to get a table. I don't know his name, a short slim blond guy over the 40s, make fun we have a table on Sushi bar for you. He turns to a host and starts laugh. Definitely, we will never come back to this restaurant, management terrible, food is okay**

Everyone was incredibly attentive, the table was fantastic, Ira our waiter was focused on our experience, didn’t rush while guiding us through their amazing menu.

Thomas Yagoda -Restaurant Director took the time to speak with clients which made us feel very welcomed.

This is our new special place.

Many thanks,
