We always celebrate birthdays there. Everything was good but a little slow with bar. As much as we like the reliable same menu year after year, some changes might be fun!

The host and hostess were very rude, dismissive and didn’t honor our reservation at all. We ended up stalking seats at the bar. Bartenders were excellent and semi-saved our experience.

The food and waiter was outstanding. The only problem was I waited 30 minutes passed my reservation time. The receptionist was not very friendly and completely ignore me and did not try to ease my wait. Then until I forcefully asked to to explain my waiting time he end up realizing I am not happy and start looking at who are ahead of me and gave me answer. The worse receptionist I ever experience

Service staff was very good, new service bartender so the mixed drinks were a bit weak. I opted to go with a classic beverage the 2nd time.

Hostess was beyond rude and tried to deny us entry because we were 10min late for our reservation, mind you this was on Valentine’s Day!!! Luckily they have a great manager who resolved the issue, seated us, and we were served a delightful meal. Love the ambience there as well.

Food was tasty. We were seated right away. Drinks were great. The lamb chop was nice and tender. The Jumbo Shrimp Pasta was amazing. I will definitely be visiting them again.

For the amount of money I paid for my meal, I shouldn’t have to pan across the room and see baseball caps, t-shirts, and sweatpants.

I dont think the meal portions match the price. I ordered the salmon and the piece was super small. The lobster mac and cheese was different

For a nice restaurant, there is quite a mix of dress codes, which brought the ambiance down a bit. I assume that comes with the location within a mall. Our server was great, but the busboys are in a coma . One was filling my water glass and dribbled water across my appetizer. Our whole table tried to flag down another for some bread.
Food and drinks were very good.

Celebrated wife’s birthday here, the entire experience was delightful and our server was amazing! Menu had happy birthday Karen printed on it and the complimentary baked Alaska presentation put the whole experience over the top. Not cheap but worth every penny!

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.

Our server Shane did a great job - very hospitable and accommodating. Nice recommendations as well regarding the menu. Didn't feel rushed at all and enjoyed our Christmas Day dinner. Will definitely visit again.
