    Went for our anniversary but was very disappointed. App portions are very small. Overcooked both entrees to the point it was disrespect to the quality of meat/fish. Will never go back to Oceanaire. There are so many better options for this price point. Would much rather go to numerous other restaurants before ever coming back. Service was not great either. Felt like they were rushing. Forgot multiple things and had to be constantly be reminded about what we needed. Didn’t do one thing to make our experience special. Much better ways to spend $500.

    Food is largely the same one that you may have had a year ago. Consistent and good; but not imaginative. Service is harried at the beginning, but comes to a standstill before the main course arrives. Extensive wine list, but many not in stock! The ambiance is attractive, but the noise level is way too high, to have a conversation. Management would be well advised to install some noise dampening panels in the restaurant. Overall though it is a well managed restaurant.

    From drinks to desserts or meal was simply incredible! The crab cake, shrimp cocktail, and oysters were great starters. The jerk Chilean Seabass was almost indescribable. The sockeye salmon was simplistic but complete perfection. The dark chocolate flourless torte was a great exclamation point to the meal. Our server Chuck did a fabulous job!!

    The only positive thing I can say is that they are open on Mondays. Service was terrible. Lipstick on my water glass (which I didn't notice until the end of the meal--nasty). Food was overcooked, undersized, and overpriced, and they brought out my main while I was still working on my app. I get that there are staffing issues everywhere, and I'm no prima donna, but these are the easy things to get right, folks!

    Arrived on time per our reservation, and table was ready. A little too close to the kitchen, but ambience was pretty loud and drowned out employee noise. Full house on a Sunday evening says a lot! Waiter was responsive and offered the specials, which we ordered and he was spot on - food was absolutely delicious. Pan seared salmon and the halibut were excellent choices. Chose whipped potatoes and green beans as sides. Potatoes were also brilliant, but told as we were eating that they were out of green beans. We couldn't have eaten them anyway (too full), but would have been nice to know that much earlier. (Got comped a dessert to take home) Food took a LONG time to arrive -almost an hour after ordering. But worth the wait. Waiter was having an issue with the table in front of us. Large group (12+) with separate checks, and then after checks arrived they played the game of "I'm paying for so-so's entree" and "I'm paying for her dessert". Total BS on that group, but I don't want to hear the waiter complaining to me about it. I go to fine dining to get away from that crap! Overall, would definitely recommend. Just get out your checkbook and expect to pay a premium price for premium (top notch) food.

    My wife and I have been to Oceanaire Seafood Room many times over the years. We went there for our anniversary on this visit. We were extremely disappointed with the service. We placed our beverage order it came right away. We then place our order for appetizers and entrees. We also ordered the relish tray which use to be complimentary (they now charge for this). We waited 40 minutes before they brought the appetizer and we still had not received the bread an relish tray. Not until after we complained about the poor service did that arrive. Within 10 minutes of getting the appetizer our entree was brought to us. We told them we were not ready for it and they brought it back to the kitchen, apparently. When we completed the appetizer our food was delivered but the wrong side dish. The correct side dish came as we were finishing the entrees........nice! Hash Browns for dessert! Management apologized for this complete debacle and did not charge us for the drinks and appetizers and threw is a free dessert. Needless to say, this failed to ameliorate what turned out to be one of the worst dining experiences my wife and I have ever had. There was also a party of 10 seated in the main dining room that was loud and boisterous making it impossible to carry on a normal conversation Why they did not put this group in a private dining room is unclear to me. We will never return!

    Our company was great but the restaurant was disappointing. They have canceled their HH but still have a few "bites" if you are looking for something to go with your non-discounted drink. The chowder was terrific and the crab sliders were very good. Don't order the fish and chips; the fish was so deeply fried it was almost inedible although the fries were excellent. The music was pleasant but if you or anyone in your party has a slight hearing problem, don't expect to hear each other. This is not the pre-pandemic HH we used to attend here.

    Great experience and great service. But the wine is way overpriced relative to similar restaurants. And the corkage fee I $50. For that reason alone, it doesn’t make sense to return, which is unfortunate.

    Food was so-so, not as good as in the past. Only two servers so even though our server was excellent, she was swamped. Calamari was burnt. Brought out second batch and it was just as burnt. Scallops were a little underdone. Lobster overcooked. Desserts were best part of the meal, especially the bread pudding.

    Over the years The Oceanaire never disappointed. My wife and I have dined there countless times and always had an excellent meal. However, on this recent occasion, we were utterly disappointed in both the preparation of the food and the service. It appears that the high turnover of the staff have reduced a once superb restaurant to a middle of the road overpriced eatery.
