    I thought this restaurant had great service and I like that it was relatively quiet and a good place to catch up with friends. I did not love my tomato and feta salad. For a similar price, you could be blown away by the one at Milos. And my branzino (grilled) was okay, but nothing special. The price, on the other hand, was quite high. I would go elsewhere for the food, but maybe go back for a quieter dinner than most restaurants.

    The concept is terrific, and for the most part, the restaurant pulls it off resaonsably well with an attentive crew and a very nice menu. The issues that we had were tied to the whole fish (John Dory) that we ordered as it had an off-putting taste and an unusual texture that forced both my wife and I to leave it uneaten (the fish had to be less than perfect to have that taste). We had other items, like the terrific Norwegian Langostine (a must have), the Spedini Ala Romano, and a very nice gem salad, so we didn't leave hungry. Sadly, the bad tasting fish, which was not inexpensive, left a bad taste in our mouths as far as this restaurant is concerned.

    The miso cod was good but they could have marinated it longer as it was missing some flavor. I’d highly recommend the lobster Mac side and the truffle fries. The sushi was good but not one of the best I’ve had. You come here for the ambiance and service, the food is good but they could be doing more for the price range

    Oceans was just the right place to celebrate my partner's birthday. It's elegant and comfortable with tables set up to people watch. It is also simultaneously quiet and lively--you can talk intimately but you always have the feeling that fun is going on around you. And did I mention the seafood? Exquisitely prepared as well as inventive. In fact, everything was exquisite, from the service to the decor. Our wait staff couldn't have been kinder and more attentive, at the same time that they gave us space to relax and did not rush us out. I highly recommend!

Throughout our meal, he checked in on us regularly but never felt intrusive. We truly felt like VIPs thanks to Jose's exceptional service. Not only was the service top-notch, but the food was also incredible. Each dish we ordered was expertly prepared with fresh and high-quality ingredients. The flavors were balanced and every bite was a delight. We especially loved the seafood dishes, which were cooked to perfection. The atmosphere of the restaurant was also noteworthy.

    Went for restaurant week and the food did not disappoint! However, the service left something to be desired. I asked if it would be possible to replace a side dish as I have an allergy and he said he would check with the kitchen…he never came back to let us know. When the main course was served, the side dish was omitted but not replaced so I just had a piece of salmon on the plate. I also had to flag the waiter down for a second drink and he ran away mid-order. Overall, would return for the food and ambiance.

    Very elegant. Though it's primarily a seafood restaurant, it has some fine non-seafood options. The Restaurant Week menu was great, and it did what Restaurant Week promotions are supposed to do -- introduced me to a new restaurant that I will definitely go back to. Nice wine selections by the glass, not outrageously priced, and excellent after-dinner drink options too. The food was exceptional. This may well become my new go-to restaurant in the Gramercy area.

    As always the food was excellent, and our server Aneta was attentive without being intrusive. The value was especially good because it was Restaurant Week, and many of the dishes we like (the mushroom soup, the grilled octopus appetizer, the black cod, and the short rib) were on the special menu.

    My first time at Oceans but will put it on my regular rotation list. Great vibe and excellent service. Started off with a creative and well balanced cocktail. The sushi and black cod were delicious and perfectly prepared and the Key Lime pie was creamy and just tart enough.
