Our experience at Oceana was truly outstanding. I would highly recommend this dining experience!
This was by far our best meal during our one week stay in New York! Not only was our server OUTSTANDING, the food was beyond expectations. Our server was very accommodating with my dairy allergy, and a wine specialist came over and recommend a fabulous wine. My fiancé and I started off with the mixed green salad (very fresh and well dressed) and for entree we ordered the swordfish which was amazing and extremely well balanced! You MUST come here during your visit to New York, you won’t be disappointed!
The service was exceptional. We had a tight time situation for a play but the staff was amazing in making dinner great even rushed.
Pre-theatre dinner birthday celebration. Understated decor. Lively bar crowd. Good food and service. Convenient to theatre district and staff is mindful of theatre schedule. Innovative cuisine.
Oyster selection and quality was great. Service was amazing. Great wine selection.
Great food. Great service. Great venue. ‘Nuff said.
Grilled porgy was really bad. The fish was either old or had been frozen or both and had lost its taste and texture and color. I should have sent it back. Unforgivable in a high-end fish restaurant. The creamed spinach was barely creamed, tasted sour.
The meal never disappoints and your staff is always attentive.
cauliflower steak entree was good but they should have been much more generous w portion at $29!
nice touch to start w complimentary butternut squash shot of soup
could be great or not so great depending on entree chosen...
waiter could have been more enthusiastic and complete when describing entrees - ive had sea bass w head and tail on before but not served in the round! hard to manage!
Food was delicious. Oysters where so succulent and along with the halibut and scallop ceviche what a start. The drinks are awesome and well made. Overall a great place for a special evening with friends and family.
Everything was awesome!!! Would totally come back again!!
Expensive but good
My family of 4 was in NYC to participate in the Macy’s Parade and to enjoy the holiday in the City. We made 6:15 pm reservations to attend an 8:00 performance of Hamilton on Broadway, and made that clear on the Open Table reservation, as well as with the hostess and our waitstaff. WE WERE NEVER SERVED OUR MEAL. The restaurant was probably 75% capacity with many empty tables, and there were no guests waiting for tables...we ordered promptly, eventually were served our salads and our oyster appetizers, but at 7:30, we still did not have our main course (the server was not sure if the food had been started yet!). After speaking with the manager, we left for the show without dinner! The manager simply said they had unanticipated volume and were running way behind (again, the restaurant was maybe 75% full with no wait for a table on a Friday night, so it is unclear why they were not prepared?). After traveling all over the world and eating at countless nice places (including this restaurant years ago), I’ve never not been served dinner. Unbelievable.
Excellent as always. We had a wonderful pre theater dinner with an excellent waiter named Pilo (unsure of the spelling)
Freshest oysters ever! Sommelier was excellent
Ambiente tranquilo y con un servicio super atento. Recomendable.
Seated 45 minutes beyond Thanksgiving reservation (4 adults 2 children).
Servers forgot drinks, placed food at wrong location and poured wrong drinks into glasses.
Food presentation was beautiful, but was not eaten by most. Either not seasoned or simply inedible. It was odd to have only 2 of 6 desserts eaten because the flavor was awful. The s’mores and gelato were the only wins. The wind and coffee were the best part of the meal. The experience was an absolute disappointment.
$800 was a bit much for the meal.
Fixed price adult $88 and child $50.
Extras were Adult drinks for 3, coffee, dozen oyster and side shrimp fried rice made with wild rice-awful).
I would never return nor refer friends/family to this establishment.
Excelent staff and food!
I would recommend, but not enthusiastically. We waited 40 minutes for our reserved table. I
liked my meal, but tasted my daughter's turkey and stuffing, which were just OK. The wine was excellent and at $55 for a sparkling white (Nino Franco) was reasonable, and my manhattan was very good as well, although rather medium in size, but $23 is way over the top for a single drink. I also couldn't taste the tuna tartar in my appetizer. The halibut was very good. My dessert was excellent.
All of this being said, it was a Thanksgiving dinner, and the place was packed. I was happy to get the reservation for 5 of us.
This might be a great sea food restaurant. The oysters and tuna tartar we had were excellent. The Thanksgiving dinner was not good. The turkey and dressing were bland, the Brussels sprouts were mushy - just not good at all.
The staff, food and venue were excellent. Being Thanksgiving Day, the staff were great. We sat at the bar till our reservation and guest arrived. The restaurant was packed, yet the food was delicious. It was a limited set menu that everyone had a favorite choice of appetizer, entree and dessert. Kudos to the management for excellent wait & kitchen staff.
Disappointed in this place for Thanksgiving Dinner. We were visiting from out of town and made reservations. We showed up for our reservation only to be told all tables were full and there was no idea when we would be seated. We had a show to get to and were in a time limit. They had began to set tables in the lounge/bar area. Those tables were nice, however very irritating to be from out of town and make reservation to only have that reservation not accommodated. We would have chosen a different restaurant for dinner knowing walks in were getting tables before reservations.
I like this spot they were very helpful and the food was good. I'm a quadriplegic and I was out alone and my host was very helpful, he cut up my food just good enough for me to get it went out his way to make my dinner and success
Food was outstanding, even with a holiday menu. Can't wait to go back for the regular menu.
Thanksgiving Dinner here was delicious! My husband had traditional turkey with the classic trimmings of mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, Brussels sprouts etc. Mean while I had halibut. Desserts and the appetizers were fantastic!
Incredibly overbooked for Thanksgiving Day. We waited for 30 minutes pst our reservation and then we suggested that we eat at the bar. Which was fine. Great service spectacular food. Table turn around was awful. The host station folk were patient and helpful, but of course could not pry slow eaters or longer getting patrons out of their seats. Will certainly be back. Probably not on a holiday.
We loved the food here (and drinks we ordered at the bar.) Servers, wait staff were amazing too but .... We made a reservation weeks in advance for Thanksgiving dinner here for two. And even if we had our reservation we had to wait for a table for more than an hour. We also had an event scheduled after the dinner and we couldn’t be late for that show.... so we had to rush to eat our food.... we were worried that we would not make it on time and we didn’t really order what we wanted but what we though would come the soonest from the kitchen. And we wanted to stay longer and enjoy this place and it’s kitchen but we couldn’t since there was no extra time for it. This part was very very disappointing
The PreFixe Thanksgiving menu had a nice selection and the food was fantastic. The waiter made me feel very unwelcome and never returned to my table to see if I wanted coffee when the dessert was served. As this is my favorite part of dining out, I was enormously disappointed after having a nice cocktail and meal.
Great restaurant and food. Just had to wait very long even had reservations .. but all worth it!
Excellent food, prices were appropriate for dish creativity and taste. Great staff!
Oceana did a very nice job for Thanksgiving dinner, food was good and service was great.
This place is awesome!! It was a delicious dinner!!
This was our first time at Oceana. We ha had a wonderful experience on every level. The service was first class. The food was spectacular. The ambiance amazing. This was also our first date. I could not have made a better choice. Bravo Oceana!
The food was was good, but very overpriced.
A girlfriend weekend get away to NYC
Overall, a very solid 4+/5. Attentive service. Nice atmosphere. A cut-above in food presentation and taste. No complaints.
Very solid business meal, as always.
Exceptional service, nice atmosphere, and very convenient location for the midtown business crowd. A little pricey, even by business standards. The raw seafood tower was delicious, but the tears of pricing are bank busting
