    Pre-theatre menu was delicious. Service was the best I’ve had in a restaurant in years. At least 7 different servers attended to us but never felt pressured or intruded upon. Just very attuned and personable. Really a wonderful meal. Would return next time we’re in NYC.

    We love Oceana. Oysters were outstanding, and my branzino was delicious. The team at oceana is very professional and courteous without being intrusive. My boyfriend received a bday dessert that was huge and so so good. Thank you for making our special night even more special.

    I had a wonderful evening at Oceana. The dining room is lovely and airy, modern without being at all sterile. Today say the service was exceptional is to underplay how very good it was. I was dining alone, which sometimes can lead to less than stellar service, but not here. My waiter managed that difficult balance of being thoroughly professional and courteous, yet personable and thoughtful as well. Although I was only ordering a glass of wine, the sommelier engaged with me about my wine, and the wine list, as if I were ordering one of the top bottles. The food was very good. Can't say enough good things about the entire meal. And an easy walk to the theater. Simply the best.

    The quality of the food needs to improve significantly. The entrée needs to be very well prepared, and taste of the food should be absolutely top quality. The service staff need to pay attention to the customer needs and not be missing during dinning.

    7 of us dined prior to seeing a show. We were asked up front if we had tickets and I'm certain they used that info to help pace the meal. Everyone from hostess, to waiter, to wine steward, servers and bussers were exceptionally courteous, knowledge, and efficient! All of the meals were top-notch. No one in our party had a bad thing to say about any of the dishes. The colossal cocktail shrimp were easily the best I've ever had. They were paired with a cocktail sauce that was superb... enough heat with just a bit of late sweetness. They also surprised my wife with a beautiful and delicious birthday cake. We'll definitely be back.

    We were so excited to try the restaurant, but unfortunately, the food was so bad that we would never go back again. The fish was not fresh and all of our appetizers were over salted. The fish entrées were terrible. They looked unappetizing and the fish was either tasteless or had a terrible metallic taste that made it seem old. It was so surprising given the positive reviews of this restaurant and it’s longevity. The food from beginning to end just completely missed the mark.
