There will be no typical composed dishes, instead an upgrade to seafood fine dining with many of the dishes served a la carte but with a compound effect, so there will be multiple flavors and sometimes different types of seafood on one plate.
Ocean 44 will feature an elaborate glass expo kitchen with nearby seats, a large bar and two dining bars, flexible private dining rooms, the main dining floor and several other options.
Our 2nd visit to your establishment was a bit disappointing for all 4 in our party. Server Liza was helpful and accommodating. The table location, not my 1st choice, was tucked in a corner so we were not disturbed by the noise level. Love the selection of music piped in.
The appetizers arrived promptly and were excellent.
The disappointment began when the main courses arrived.
The Branzino was tasty but very small portion for 10 Oz.
My 1/2 cluster of king crab was not sweet and moist and was very difficult to open due to the poor manner in which they were sliced open - ( I’d ordered the same dish at Steak 44 recently, your sister restaurant, and they were cut straight down the center and pulled slightly open making it easy for the meat to slide out. They were also amazingly tender, sweet and not dry).
Our friends ordered cauliflower side dish but instead out came Brussels sprouts. By the time this was corrected they were half way thru their main course. They complained the cauliflower was tasteless but by this time did not say anything to the server.
The birthday dessert was excellent.
In an effort for management to perhaps correct some of these issues I decided to write this review.
Best in AZ!
This is now my favorite restaurant in Scottsdale! The decor is beautiful. The food is excellent. It is expensive but worth it.
The service was fantastic, both the server and assistant server.
The restaurant was full so the noise level was pretty high. It had an energetic feel. Love the beautiful raw bar.
They provided a card and a complimentary dessert for our birthday person. Great evening!
Very attentive server
Food was delicious
Decor is great
We had a fabulous dinner. Very expensive, but well worth it for special occasions. Portions are generous so plan to share. We will most certainly return.
Service and food is as expected at this price point...very good. Setting a bit crowded with music a bit louder than it should have been, playlist more suited for a bar rather than a fine dining venue.
Everything was perfect
Arrived 10 minutes early was seated promptly. Service from the start to finish was phenomenal. Great atmosphere for any occasion! Food was amazing and the key lime pie is soooo good!
The choice of music was awful -- Michael Jackson, disco remakes from the 70s. Ridiculous. Saving grace was a young server who did a great job with his memorization of food choices.
Just as good as Steak 44, but with an emphasis on seafood. Big, beautiful buildout. Food and service were 100%.
Popular restaurant with great vibe. Overcrowded and very loud, no outdoor dining.
Be prepared for at least 45 minute wait with reservations.
Seafood quality very good
Second time there. It was as great this time as it was last.
Food, service, decoration and ambience were excellent. It is pricey but worth it. Nice crowd. We will return.
I let them know it was my dear friend’s birthday. We were late, yet I called ahead and they accommodated us graciously. Ocean 44 had a lovely card for her that was so personalized too! That was unexpected and appreciated! Our server, “Drew” was “top-shelf” as well. My girlfriend remarked, “This is the best martini I’ve ever had”! We enjoyed a fresh oyster sampler, a colossal shrimp cocktail, lobster, a delicious bottle of champagne and key lime pie on the house for dessert! It was exactly what my friend wanted on her special day!
Ocean 44 is amazing! Great service, food & the ambiance is great! Love the music, energy & vibe.
Our food was outstanding, the service was flawless, atmosphere was just right. We will come again!!
Food was excellent as was the service. Noteworthy was their music sound track. It really made for an excellent dining experience.
Incredible. Book it if you can even find a reservation
It's expensive. Let's face it...the entire dining experience is so fabulous that you just don't worry about the cost. GREAT waiter. Fantastic lighting and ambiance. Absolutely fantastic seafood!! I cannot wait to go back!
What a amazing experience, It was my wife's B-day and they made it special from a Birthday Card to a Birthday desert and our dinner was outstanding. Service was exceptional.
After visiting Steak 44 on numerous other occasions, we were excited to try the new member of the family. Ocean 44 did not disappoint! The halibut on special was one of the best prepared piece of fish I had ever had. Our server, Michael, was fun and upbeat. You can see the passion in every aspect of this group.
Amazing as always. Ocean 44 is one of my favorite restaurants in the Valley and each time it's confirmed why. Great service, great atmosphere and delicious food. Highly recommend.
This place is absolutely fabulous, from food to service, everything is impeccable
Good service good food and enjoy the evening
We loved the ambiance, the service and the food. Will for sure be back.
Everything from the cocktails to dessert was fabulous. Service was outstanding as well. My only feedback was the lobster tails. Our server said that while the menu lists 2 - 10 ounce tails, each one was about 3 ounces after removing the shell. Therefore, I ordered them both. I thought the one I ate might have been undercooked based solely on the texture. But, I ate it and enjoyed it. The next day I chopped up the other to put in a salad, and realized half of that tail was still greyish (undercooked). I just feel if you are going to pay $84 for two lobster tails that they should have been cooked correctly. Aside from the food, the atmosphere and ambience was incredible, and we did have a wonderful evening.
The food and service were outstanding. The restaurant is has a great atmosphere.
We took niece and nephew to birthday dinner. Food service and atmosphere great! We’ll return!
The restaurant is spectacular
The service was excellent and everything was timed perfectly
The food was DELICIOUS
I would recommend this for a special night
Perfection in ambiance, service and food presentation.
Outstanding food and service! We love this new restaurant and will be frequent diners there!
Was our first time at 44 and the experience was excellent!
Great hype about the place,
Quality of food served is below par.
First time dining at Ocean 44 but won't be our last. The food, ambiance, energy and vibe were all excellent for various types of dining experiences. Looking forward to returning in May
Best restaurant experience in Scottsdale! The wine list is reasonably priced,a great variety of food options and the music adds to a memorable evening! Friendly service from your arrival!
Loved this place!!!!
Service is outstanding. Equal to 4/5 star restaurants in NY/Chicago.
Excellent fresh fish, oversize portions and sides.
Very fresh ambiance, different in a good way from their other restaurants.
Pricing is not cheap, especially the wine list.
Elegant and incredible dinner.
Always a favorite. Food is always amazing. I take people here often for work and they always comment it was one of the beat meals they’ve ever had.
