Oceans is a very nice restaurant. My wife and I chose it for our first night in NYC. We started with the crab cake which was good. We both ordered the Black Cod on the server’s recommendation as one of their best dishes.

The fish itself was excellent. The accompaniments were a little light for my appetite and the broth was OK but seemed to be missing a little something. However the major issue was it contained quinoa an ingredient not listed on the menu. Unfortunately my wife has a severe food sensitivity to quinoa. By the time we realized what was in the both she had eaten a good portion of the meal.

We informed the staff of the issue and that we would have to leave immediately as she would begin to feel unwell very shortly. They were apologetic and did not charge her for her meal. I was very disappointed they still had the expectation for us to pay for the remainder.

Not including an ingredient, which many people have a sensitivity to, on the menu is a major mistake! Not expecting my wife to pay for the meal that made her sick is basic. My expectation from a “5 star” restaurant would be “we are very sorry we have ruined your evening, don’t worry about the bill”. They fell well short of expectations. We were in bed by 10pm with two Gravol and my wife sleeping next to a garbage can just in case.

Best seafood in NY and beyond! Clean, fresh, and absolutely delicious items that can’t be found anywhere else. The toro tartare is a sensational appetizer to begin the meal, with a delicate yet flavorful preparation of this high quality fish. It set the stage for rest of the beautiful dishes that followed.

Very good food and a most attentive staff. They pay attention to detail. A great place for “food pampering”. Not to mention the elaborate wine and spirits list.

Now In my favorite listing.

She had the Dorado and I had the Dover Sole. We shared broccolini. Salads are a lot for one person especially if there’s a course coming behind it. They were delicious, just too much for one.

It was the perfect spot to enter again into the Manhattan restaurant scene.

Kudos all around!!

Everyone at the table enjoyed their meal immensely. Very fresh and large shrimp for appetizer and the cold Maine whole lobster was so delicious. My friends ate the cod and thought it was terrific. The waiter service was excellent. Don’t remember his name but delightful personality and excellent attention to us. He was on his game.

Fresh, tasty and well presented dishes that are primarily seafood based. The decor is light, spacious and airy. And the noise level is quite moderate. The staff was excellent. Friendly and accommodating-no snobbery here (which I hate). I really enjoyed the evening and will be returning.

Our reservation was for 6p. The hostess tried to seat us by the front door which was too cold. We ended up sitting by the kitchen. The restaurant was empty. The quality of the fish was amazing. But the overall experience really made it less than. I would return for drinks but not much else.

another magnificent meal at our favorite restaurant ...the seafood risotto special was remarkable...and the short ribs and sushi rolls again were top notch...and the staff especially Aneta (and the sommelier Henry and the wonderful others staffers) were again totally professional and couldn't be more helpful and attentive...Go to Oceans if you haven't yet tried it...Its worth it!!

The server did an ok job, we provided feedback with several dishes, and were told that it works for some, it doesn’t work for others, and that it was a matter of taste, not really a good answer. I had planned to use the Superman room on December 1st, and will not to having my dinner there anymore. The manager came over to ask how the food was, he also shrugged his shoulders, which tells me it’s a training that has to be done all around. This is the first review I ever write and during this time of pandemic, it is difficult, I understand, please accept this review as a form of constructive criticism, as it looks like a lot of money was spent into the space, and these details can sometimes hurt success. Best!

Oceans is the place to go for great seafood in an impeccable setting. Various seating options include booths and small to large table seatings, no one is on top of another. The menu includes my personal favorite, lobster rolls, which they do well. Menu otherwise has great variety in terms of fish, sushi or meat. Have enjoyed every visit.
