Ocean 44 is seafood reinvented in a vibrant upscale atmosphere specializing in world class seafood and the great steaks we are known for at Steak 44. Different than anything we have done in the past, the atmosphere is second to none, featuring a blend of dining settings ranging from dramatic to intimate. At the core of the Ocean 44 Experience is our chef sourced, highest graded sustainable fresh seafood from around from the world, enhanced with unique and interesting appetizers and side dishes that go beyond the traditional seafood menu.

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.

Ocean 44 was a top notch restaurant that I would recommend to anyone that is ok with paying more for a meal. Although the price is indeed expensive the quality, service, food, staff was all amazing and defiantly will be going back again!

Wonderful meal with excellent service. It was our wedding anniversary and we’re seated in s private area. Only con is that it’s very pricey as compared to the other Mastro’s restaurants in Scottsdale.

We experienced our first time on this visit for a special Birthday occasion. The overall service experience and food were fantastic! The one thing that could have been better was the seating. There was an apparent dining area off the bar, which looked more formal, but we were sat in the bar, which made the occasion feel more like a Happy Hour than the intended occasion.

When we first sat down we were close to a table that was talking so loud we couldn’t even hear our own conversation at our table. We asked the waiter if we could move us and he gladly relocated us. Everyone’s food was great the crab legs were absolutely outstanding!!!!!!! Great service, great drinks, great atmosphere, great food! A must eat in Scottsdale!!!!

Food was great. No hurry to get us in and out. The food came quickly when we did order but weren't rushed ever! We were treated very personally. Didn't like the first choice of location, but were moved without any hassle. The noise level was just fine. Ocean 44 played canned music that was enjoyable if we wanted to listen or it was just good background music. A great place for a special occasion.

Food was great. The server, Chris, was outstanding. One of our party used a wheel chair and it was not the best accomodating and/or accessible. A bit slow at the end due to Chris being swamped

The food was pretty good, but the minute our server realized we weren’t planning on spending 1K + on our dinner, his entire demeanor changed. Mind you, we still spent just under $600, which is a splurge for most. It’s unfortunate because it put quite the damper on the rest of our evening. If you’re prepared to shell out the cash then your experience may be better than ours.

I wanted to wait a few days before writing this review, so I could cool off. To say I am upset and disappointed is an understatement. AJ our waiter was outstanding, the restaurant itself is beautiful so I felt bad telling AJ how disappointed we were in the food. To start off, I so badly wanted to enjoy this restaurant as I am always frequenting steak 44, so our expectations were very high for Oceans 44. I called the restaurant 3 separate times during the week reminding them it was my wife’s 31st birthday. AJ wished her happy birthday after I told him it was her birthday we were celebrating and gave her a happy birthday “note.” I was told she would be receiving a special dessert with her name written on it at the end, which we did not, so AJ let us order the only gluten free option which was some extremely rich chocolate cream filled ball, which was awful. My sister ordered the special “wild caught” Salmon in which she could not stomach, and we all tried to verify, so she sent back. My brother-in-law ordered the Wagyu filet and I ordered the filet mignon. We both ordered them to be cooked medium and they both came out more well done. We also ordered the chive and cream cheese stuffed hashbrown (not the hashbrown pizza), note to everyone this is actually the size of a large pizza, this will feed at least 10 people. My wife and I split 3 shrimp cocktails (24 dollars) which were extremely small and overcooked, definitely not “colossal” in which the menu states. Needless to say, we spent over $500 dollars and the best item we all ordered were the crème brulee corn. I would not waste your money on this restaurant, it was SO over priced for the quality of food.

If you request to not be seated in the bar area you will have a great experience with excellent service. The bar area should not have dining tables. They are too close together and the ambience is ruined by people who can only afford to come here for a drink and then stand too close to your table and are too loud and obnoxious. Our waiter moved us at our request to another table in a different area and it was like we were at a different restaurant with the service and ambience you would expect from a fine dining establishment. Outstanding service just unfortunate circumstances and seating arrangement.

It is a restaurant to be seen in. The wait staff was tentive and knowledgeable. Price for value of the meal I felt the restaurant is over priced. The noise level is extremely high and to have a normal conversation in the space was trying. I did ask the waiter to lower the volume to the musics and they did honor the request.

We went to celebrate our anniversary and the entire Ocean 44 team made it a memorable experience. Our waiter, Donavon, was amazing and came to the table just when we needed him. The food was outstanding and the dessert we ordered had Happy Anniversary written on the plate. As we were getting ready to leave, Donavon had our car brought to the front. We definitely recommend Ocean 44 as we will be back.

Went for our 25th wedding anniversary. Notified the staff in the reservation to see what they might do. They did not disappoint. Greeted by hostess with congratulations. Hand written card from the GM when we were seated in the corner window seat. Very tasteful greetings and acknowledgement from wait staff. They made my wife feel very special.

Their Walnut Old Fashioned may be my favorite cocktail of all time. Of course the food was amazing. They finished with a small chocolate cake with a personalized Anniversary message in chocolate syrup.

On our departure we were enthusiastically and sincerely thanked. The valets let us leave the car for a while as we walked off the alcohol buzz at Scottsdale Fashion Square across the street.

Overall it was a superb evening and a fitting place to celebrate.

Great dining experience. Only complaint was valet. Waited over 10 minutes for car that was parked in front while valet person was talking to someone about football with customer he just brought car. He knew we were waiting, but continued to talk. It was enough time for me to change his tip from a 20 to a 5. I only mention this because others were waiting too, and it people were talking about it. It wasn’t like it was even that crowded. Just poor performance by valet. It was a clear departure from the service at the restaurant.

food was good service not so good, poor. have always had superb service at comparable places such as the maestros restaurants, steak44, always great but the waiter here was very bad. was an anniversary and i had included in the reservations to bring a special desert out for the wife that says happy anniversary. i even called the same day we were going and they said "yes, we have the info right here it will be taken care of". when it came down to the end, nothing. i asked the waiter and he said he knew nothing about it and instead of getting it then just said, "SORRY". food was not better than the other places and the other places service is great so we will not be going back here
