Food was ok - big place and was pretty empty so no real ambiance - too pricey for quality - service however was excellent
Fresh seafood, great service. Will definitely be back.
We chose Oceana for dinner in celebration of our wedding anniversary. We were taking in a show that evening and chose from the theatre menu, which had some very good selections and we also added the wine pairing for each course. For apps we had the fried calamari and the swordfish ceviche, the calamari were crispy in the outside and tender on the inside. The ceviche was delicious with just the right amount of acidity and cilantro. My wife chose the Scottish salmon and I chose the calamari over fresh made spaghetti. Both were delicious and perfectly prepared. Our server and the waitstaff worked in well coordinated synchronization to deliver the courses, change out silverware, etc. Upon discovering it was our anniversary our server, Yamina, she was wonderful, brought us champagne and a special chocolate mousse dessert, aside from our other desserts of sorbets and panna cotta. We left feeling very satisfied and well imbibed ! Thank you to the Oceana team for making our anniversary extra special !
Fabulous restaurant in every way!
Biggest problem was the temperature. The place was freezing!!
Closely sat tables, rushed server, our meals tasted average, sea bass is plated with the whole head and tail which was not explained to us by our rushed waiter. We will certainly give this restaurant another try due to the wonderful manager who prepared us a lovely table side dessert and the friendly hostess.
Best midtown lunch place for business or casual dining. Seafood is fresh and good portions. Service is excellent. This is my favorite lunch place.
The food was excellent. The waiters and the sommelier were knowledgeable and helpful. I had the melon “pavlova” for dessert. It’s preparation at the table was a spectacular piece of performance art resulting in one of the best desserts I have ever had.
Food was average at best, will not go back
Pre theatre menu was delicious and reasonable. Had the wine tasting too. Really lovely experience!
Truly one of New York's great restaurants. Impeccable service, outstanding and creative food , extensive wine list and a perfect location for a pre-theatre meal. Just a wonderful place.
From the moment we arrived we were treated like valued guests, despite this being our first visit.
The drinks at the bar were delicious, the menu varied, the help from the sommelier in choosing a wine was politely chosen from our price range, and the dinner was superb.
I will definitely return.
An extraordinary daily accomplishment - to serve so many people such good food at high but reasonable prices. Service is especially accomplished but discreet.
The food was outstanding. A nice selection for the fixed price lunch
Excellent food and drinks, ambience and service were terrific.
We were sat in the back room which is not as nice as the front dining room
Stellar from top to bottom, from the front desk to dessert, as always. Elegant yet comfortable. The food seems to grow better all of the time if that’s even possible. Chef Bill finds new ways to compliment the freshest seafood without drowning it in heavy sauce, delicate seasonings are spot on. Trout appetizer and entree are incredible as is the halibut. Always excellent wine pairing recommendations and fabulous creative and substantial cocktails. Don’t miss the Chocolate Bar dessert with peanut butter, it is extraordinary. One of our favorite places to keep returning to in Manhattan. Don’t miss it.
even though the fish is very good and the atmosphere is pretty, it is disappointing compared to the quaint, small, romantic prior Oceana in Midtown area.
Pre-theater dinner menu is tasty and good value, service and ambiance very pleasant -
Great overall experience. Service was A-mazing - you felt like the only table in there
So everyone should come here for the SEAFOOD and guess what, it will not disappoint.
Not a good date spot as its not too romantic. Clientle appears to be corporate. All blue suits, etc.
Great cuisine and impeccable service.
The food and wine were very good (if a bit pricey). However, the service was surprisingly poor. We ate early on a Thursday night with only a light crowd. The waiter was a bit aloof and disappeared after the dessert. We had a to ask for a second cup of coffee and again for the check. The waiter finally brought the check and returned the credit card slip without a word. There was an abundance of waitstaff, but most of them seemed more interested to talk among themselves than service customers.
Consistent and terrific
Our waiter Luis is a wonderful person! We will ask for him to be our waiter next time, which will happen again. All of wait staff were superb! Food was 5 star plus. A great experience for our 45th anniversary!
Such an amazing night. Was treated like family when we came in the door and the night just kept getting better. Lisa, the bartender was pleasant and accommodating. Food was awesome and service was top notch. Everything so fresh and exceeded expectations. Loved the night!
Food was awesome and service was unmatched. Felt like a king and ate like one too.
I went to Oceana for a client dinner. Loved the menu options, and the lobster pasta I had was fantastic.
They got my dessert order wrong and never checked on us. By the time they came back we were nearly late for our show. Since they served me something I was allergic to, I did not eat it however still got charged the full prefix menu cost. I wasn’t looking for a comp, I actually wanted dessert. They just seemed very distracted for a restaurant that was only 50% full.
Outstanding prix fixe lunch menu. Delicious and a great value.
Oceana does a fantastic job. Every item was perfectly thought through and the fish was (and always is) fresh. Thank you!!!!
Service and food were great, the only down side was the noise. There happened to be a very loud lady whose was very disturbing., so I regrettable gave a low grade for noise.
Love this place, get a booth and it is also reasonably quiet. Exceptional waitstaff, nice menu, convenient location for midtown meetings and theatre.
Dined here because I had been here a few years ago and enjoyed it. Will not be back. The service is attentive however they could not get our orders right. The food quality is poorer than other restaurants at this price point.
The noise at lunch, even when the restaurant is not full, is so loud you cannot hear your dining companions.
Great food and service
Best Oysters around
Service was outstanding! I’ve eaten here several times. Food is always excellent. Oceana is not my favorites in NYC and definitely my favorite seafood option in midtown!
Outstanding service and best risotto I’ve ever had!
