    I was shocked at how much my fish was, $72 and so clearly for two people but we were not told that before we ordered, so we each got a grilled fish. You can imagine! Also, our server hated us, she just barely paid attention to us and seemed annoyed we existed. We’re in our 40s… this was our third time here and we were here for a bday dinner, what a disappointment

    The first time I came to Ocean's, I was a fan for life! I recently came back with my parents for a very memorable evening. Again the visit was delicious and perfect. Aneta was our server and was she super well versed in the night's menu specials, and she made excellent suggestions of which whole fish I should try. I got the Red Snapper this time vs the previous meal, where I had the Dorade. The presentation is most impressive and the flavors surpass any other seafood you can get in NYC. The restaurant was full of happy customers and the vibes were very electrifying while maintaining an elegant and calming dining atmosphere. Our table enjoyed the tartare which is topped with luxurious caviar; the scallops, which were a special feature that evening; my dad had the Halibut entree; my mom had a sushi roll and the mushroom soup. Everything was decadent and made to perfection. This place continues to WOW me and its other patrons and I wish the team there the best as they continue to deliver a 5 start service to a hungry 5 star city!

    All I can say is that I was absolutely blown away with Oceans service and food. First we were greeted by the hostesses who had nothing but welcoming energy. Once we were seated, our waitress introduced herself and brought us a cocktail menu. We received our cocktails and ordered appetizers as well as entrées. The food came out within minutes! So fresh, so flavorful, I was in complete awe! The Tsunami and Rocketman Roll melted in our mouths. The Grilled Octopus was also to die for! For our entrées we ordered the Lobster Mac & Cheese, and Braised Lamb Casarecce. Delectable. The doughnuts for dessert were just the icing on top of the cake. Overall, I give this experience 5 stars. I will be recommending Oceans to anyone who loves fine dining and seafood. This will now be my go-to place. Thank you Oceans!

    The food Saturday night was not up to its usual perfection. Sushi was bland and special langoustine dish was not flavorful. We were charged for 2 items we did not order but luckily checked the bill. The hostess stand - fantastic, so nice welcoming! Our very tall thin red headed waitress had a haughty attitude.

    We loved our Anniversary dinner at Oceans. Everyone from the hostess to the wine steward to our terrific waiter could not do more to make us feel special. The food is excellent and they even wrote Happy Anniversary on our sorbet dessert plate. We’ll be back when it’s not a special occasion. Thank you, Oceans!

    What a surprise. A fish restaurant that serves good food from the land. Not only was there a excellent black bass, but a very good filet mignon with mashed potatoes and broccolini. Starters such as the mushroom soup and salad were good too. One can order a whole fish and have it prepared however you like (sushi, sashimi, cooked various ways, etc.). The restaurant is comfortable with a beautiful bar (really two bars) and plenty of space for events, both small and large. Service was prompt, friendly and helpful and the restaurant ran like clockwork and unobtrusive -- no long waits to be seated, served or attended to in any way. Cocktails were another high point with some very interesting selections to choose from. There is also a comprehensive wine and sake list.
