    We decided to go the small plates route and we were rewarded with a great meal- we chose the tuna tartare, crab cake, yellowtail jalapeño roll and octopus and it was all excellent and just what we were looking for quantity and quality wise. Also we got there early and enjoyed our time and drinks at the beautiful bar. Walking distance from our place so we will definitely be back

    Great service and very accommodating staff we were catching up with friends visiting and did not feel rushed I know these guys are not the only ones to do it, but wish they communicated the costs of items on the Specials menu when presenting the options, especially when they were significantly more Than the existing menu items

    Spur of the moment decision to try Oceans while in town for a couple of days, and this restaurant did not disappoint. Everyone was welcoming and our server Stephen was fantastic. He was so friendly, answered any questions, and gave recommendations on menu items he thought we’d enjoy. Now on to the food.. the waygu tataki appetizer was wonderful, as was the market greens salad. So fresh and included far more yummy veggies than one usually sees on this type of salad. I had the spicy tuna roll which was delicious. My husband had the grilled whole snapper and it was delectable. The molten chocolate lava cake was absolutely divine. Finally, if you don’t drink they have several mocktails to choose from, and the one I had, I’m blanking on the name, was so tasty. Highly recommend this establishment if you’re in the mood for seafood and we will definitely be back the next time we’re in the city.

The ambience of this restaurant is smartly appointed, the service impeccable and the food absolutely delicious. My parents especially got a kick out of being able to choose their fish for the grill. Overall we had wonderful meal from start to finish. Thank you for such a wonderful experience!

The service is unparalleled (hard to find lately in NYC restaurants), the food was spectacular, and the restaurant is beautiful. Highly recommend for a special occasion or just a drink at the bar.

    Great food, albeit very small appetizer portions at a price. Service was excellent except we had to remind our waitress to tell us what the specials were. A fantastic restaurant to celebrate a special occasion. Otherwise, more tailored to the expense account crowd.

    This is one of Manhattan’s hidden jewels. The service is on par with restaurants that claim two - three months wait for a reservation. If you are trying to have a dinner, or special occasion, or anything in between, this is the place. It will not only be beyond your expectations, it will take your whole culinary experience to a new level.

    Great new restaurant near Union Square. Food, cocktails and service are all excellent. My go-to cocktail is the Superman, which is pretty much their variation of the Old-Fashioned that comes in an awesome cocktail glass. Given it's a seafood restaurant, I typically go for the lobster roll, which is probably the best I've ever had and has more lobster than most. At other restaurants, it almost feels like the lobster roll is bread and veggies, but not the case here. High ceilings, spacious, dimly lit, upscale atmosphere. Definitely recommend.
