My birthday dinner was absolutely delicious!!! My family and friends loved it! I can’t wait to go back. I had the chicken fried lobster and it was amazing!

I was happy to bring my husband here for his birthday. I believe our server’s name was Corrine. She was wonderful and well versed with everything on the menu. The food and drinks were absolutely amazing. This was one of the best dining experiences ever.

Went to Oceanaire for the first time and I'm so glad we did. It was a total of 5 of us out to celebrate my daughter's 22nd birthday. We ALL loved the food. It was great without being overpriced yet still pricey. All worth it. Our server was great and I would probably only want to be there when she is! Her name was Corrina and I hope they keep people like her on the team. She is the main reason that I will return very soon.

Accommodated a nice quiet booth table. Appetizers were delicious. Then things went downhill. They ran out of the wine I was drinking and instead of honoring it at $15 a glass I was up charged for the additional 2 glasses of a higher end wine. Not my fault that they ran out of the reasonably priced wine. My husbands dinner was fine - steak overcooked but perfectly ok to eat. My stuffed cod Florentine was cold in the middle. At this point I was full from appetizers and I don’t send meals back to the kitchen. I had a great time when we were here a few years back but with so many other options for seafood locally it will be hard to want to come back and try this again.

Been here many times but last 3 visits the service has been reduced and food is spotty. Prices have gone up and portions salcaled down. NEVER ask you for a refill on your coffee and dessert portions were for 2 but no longer.
Sadly the restaurant has gone from excellent to a good.

Quality of food, especially seafood, was excellent. Everything was fresh and presented beautifully, however, we suspect the kitchen staff was a little overwhelmed and out of sync since our seafood entrees (particularly one of them) were not hot at all. (Management acknowledged and corrected issue). Another table also had a similar issue within the same time period. The ambiance was a little too dark for our taste but it was decorated nicely. The waiter could have been a little more attentive and informative regarding delays with kitchen. We will definitely try it again during a non-holiday date when they hopefully won't be so overwhelmed.

Every time I come to Oceanaire Seafod Room I always have an outstanding experience. To start, the ambiance is suitable for almost any occasion - whether it be an intimate dinner for 2 or a larger group of people. The menu too has a pretty good selection for steak and seafood lovers alike. The service is also outstanding. I've never had bad service during any of my visits. Oceanaire Seafood Room is my go to place when I want to celebrate a special occasion.

This place is top notch compared to the best seafood in Manhattan! Every course of the evening tasted great, as expected for the price. Flawless service, and will return again.

It's just ok. Good food, but nothing crazy. A little bit overpriced. Servers are pretty good and sommeliers very knowledgable.

More than a few hookups for an uncomplicated order. Server apologetic but did nothing to make up for it. My father's entree came out cold

Everything about my birthday dinner at Oceanaire was exceptional! From the moment we walked in and greeted by the hostess, to our incredible waitress, Leah, we felt that we were treated like royalty. Your amazing manager, Rocco, went above and beyond to see that my day was truly a celebration. His attention to every detail definitely needs to be acknowledged. Kudos to all and thank you‼️❤️💕❣️🎈😍🥰😘‼️

Since you're asking for a review here it is - This was our first time at Oceanaire . Beautiful looking restaurant I must say . Our waiter was courteous and clearly knows a great deal, but spent way to much time with us and even tried to sell us on a membership too! That's a bit presumptuous for a fist visit and we hadn't finished a meal there yet. He came to our table every 10 minutes, It felt like I was dining with him! . We would rather not have been interrupted so much. I took the waiters advice on the chicken fried Lobster . It was a beautiful presentation, however the lobster prepared like that was really tasteless and I should have sent it back. It was a disappointment, I regret that I didn't and I should have known better. We were with family, and I wanted to be polite so I let it slide. It is an expensive restaurant and combined with the experience I doubt we will come back.

Oceanaire has become our favorite weekly dining night out venue. The fish is always fresh, flavorful and meticulously prepared. The service is impeccable and the decor is sophisticated, yet modern. Our Landry’s card has rewards points that add up to significantly to help defray the costs. Kudos to all!

A little overpriced the sangría was watered down...When I asked for less ice they filled the cup less than half way with the sangria! Our bills close to $400 we should have been given a decent glass of sangria!

Food is always excellent here. I would have given more stars for the service but the waiter (who was a lovely guy) pushed their rewards program so hard it started to feel like we were at a used car lot. It was kind of a joke but not really.
