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.

Fabulous, as always. Tonight I ordered salmon in coconut curry sauce. I savored every morsel. The service is professional, yet personal. Even the cappuccino was perfection! Highly recommended.

Every time a corporate visitor comes along at work and they ask where to eat, I always recommend Oceanaire; especially when I'm invited to tag along. Quality food and service each visit.

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.

Pricey, but worth every penny. This is our "celebration" place....fresh food, excellent service and wonderful preparation. Rocko makes this place special, and we never tire of hearing about his family. Service is always professional but also friendly.

Always a great experience here. Food is beautifully presented and served. It’s a high end chain restaurant so the food is always consistent - but it can be boring as a result so this isn’t a place to go on a regular basis - but for a special occasion it’s perfect.

The waitress was excellent. The rewards program is a big incentive to come, as I had $25 on my account and an additional $25 for my birthday! Been coming for years, first when it was MaCormick and Schmicks, and now as Oceanaire. Also Enjoy the chart house and Mortons. Keep the rewards program going!

We had a special meal at Oceanaire for our anniversary. Food and service (Julio to great care of us) were fantastic, and is what one should expect given the prices.

The Food was excellent! I had Clams Casino which was heavenly! Followed by Halibut with Scallops! 😋. It seemed like our server had other tables on the other side because she would leave for 20 minutes at a time. For the this type of restaurant I would expect the water to be poured as soon as we sat down, instead, It was about 10 min before we got water. I get it’s a busy Saturday, but the service could have been way better. The food again was excellent and for that I would return again!

I have been to Oceanaire a couple times and have had great experiences. The servers are friendly and attentive. The food is wonderful and I love the raw bar. I personally like the shrimp and grits and crab cakes. I would recommend Oceanaire for great seafood and a relaxing atmosphere.

We just love this restaurant! & we dine here often.
The food quality is excellent, the ambience is comfortable , the music fits the mood but the one thing that make this place a click above is the way they make you feel welcomed while you dine.
Last night we celebrated my wife’s birthday with her family & I called ahead & spoke to Chris and told him that a few people have hearing issues & that we were also celebrating my wife as a cancer survivor so I want her 75th to be special.
On arriving he escort us to a their party room that we had all to ourselves!
Thank you Chris & the entire staff for making this a special birthday for a special woman !

Steak was awful. Over seasoned and chewy. The octopus was also hard and chewy. The calamari tasted good, but was far too breaded. No one even asked us if we enjoyed the meal and we didn’t even get asked if we were Landry’s members.

Excellent seafood dinner for a party of four on a Friday night. The clam chowder, fried calamari, shrimp scampi, salmon, and mako shark were delicious. Our waiter was helpful, prompt and courteous. For dessert two in our party had the baked Alaska which our waiter added a flame to, just like that famous dish from weddings in the past. The sorbet was light and refreshing for mself and my husband as we were quite full from the dinner. We will return.
