    How delightful finding that rare Restaurant Week spot that is aware of the original purpose, long forgotten by most: to serve a meal that encourages diners to return at a later date. Oceans is a handsome David Rockwell design. The RW Week menu is better than average and more importantly it delivers in every way. All ingredients were superb, skillfully and imaginatively prepared. One shouldn't expect Dover Sole at $30 but the Faroe salmon with a superb flavored rice accompaniment. Preceded by a delicious wild mushroom soup and one person had the salad which was filled with imaginative ingredients and like all portions quite generous.A delicious Morey bourgogne aligote added sheen to the fine meal. Service was extremely pleasant and thoughtful, though with the place only 1/3 full felt a little more attentiveness would be nice. Somm was very helpful. Look forward to returning soon. Many restaurants could learn numerous lessons from Oceans but I'm not holding my breath. Congratulations and thanks to all who made this such a lovely experience.

    Nice spot, just make sure you check your bill if you start at the bar before your seated. I was charged for 3 extra drunks I didn't order. My fault, I should have checked the bill more thoroughly before paying.

    Sat us at the table next to the hostess, removed from both the bar and dining area. Server pitched a great sounding grilled fish to share, checked to make sure it was available. So we ordered it, then server returned later to tell us the fish was no longer available. Fish we ended up having was fair, apps were great.

    Great service. Some portions are good like the tuna tartar and rocketman roll. Crab cake is small. Drinks seem short for the price, and drinks are pricey. But everything was delicious. The dover sole is excellent. The atmosphere is classy upscale and vibrant. Tables spaced decently. Good for a special location.

    They bus the table immediately all the time without asking between each plate. New plates, new silverware etc. I guess the clientele there are happy with it, but I was pretty bummed going through 4 sets of chopsticks. Overkill…. Food is high quality and at times excellent.

    Oceans was great, we went to celebrate my 25th birthday. We enjoyed all the appetizer and seafood options, the sushi was very tasty and fresh as well. Overall great ambiance and service. The only thing is that I wish the food came out a little slower.. when I eat dinner I like to take my time enjoy, but we noticed that as soon as we ordered, our food came out in less than 10 minutes. There was no “down time” so to say. Not the worst thing but something to consider

    This was a lovely place to have a New Year’s Eve dinner. The food was delicious the service was outstanding and the ambience was beautiful. The prix fix was the best value as it was reasonably priced. Goes to show that you don’t have to pay exorbitant prices to have a great evening on New Year’s Eve in NYC!

    It was surprising and a bit disappointing to receive the order 5 min after we submitted it with the waitress. Felt we were being rushed. Moreover, the sommelier was informative and apparently knows a proper pour. However, the waitress was constantly over filling our wine glasses... again felt we were being rushed. Finally, I was seated right under the hvac outlet. It seems like it was turned-on on cold, blowing cold air on us and right onto our plates. I guess I should have informed the staff earlier to see if we can find another place. Although, when I did informed our waitress, she was kind to relocate us to another table.

    We came here to celebrate a friend’s birthday dinner. The drinks were outstanding but the food and service was a bit inconsistent for us. The oysters, sushi rolls, crab cake were all very good but the lobster roll, lobster mac and cheese and brussel sprouts were average at best compared to other places where we’ve tried same items, especially given the prices. Our server was very kind but seemed distracted; we had indicated to another server who came by that we didn’t want any more sparkling water but our original server came over afterwards and just started pouring another bottle so we went with it. Our tab included a glass of white wine he hadn’t ordered but it was removed once we called it out to our third server of the evening. We would definitely return for drinks and light apps but likely not for a full meal. The best parts of of our experience were the drinks and ambiance. The worst parts were the inconsistency in service and food.

    Absolutely delicious food in a beautiful atmosphere. My husband and I dined here on Christmas Eve and it was the perfect special occasion meal. Everyone orders the Cod but the Hawaiian Walu was so flavorful, can’t wait to have again. The short rib was also decadent and delicious. We also ordered the rocketman sushi roll and the octopus. All would order again. Can’t wait for a reason to go back!
