    Not recommended

    Sour, unfriendly service mars a meal, and if the meal is as pricey as one at Oceana, sour service is positively criminal. We were practically the only people at the restaurant on a snowy Monday night (in other words, we'd made a hell of an effort to be there), and had booked in advance. We tried to order extra sides after our main courses had arrived, only to be told the kitchen had closed: It was just past 930PM. Miraculously, the kitchen was not shut when it came time to order dessert, though the curt waiter did seem to show an unseemly interest in hustling all of us to order the brownies and not any desserts that take a bit of time to prepare. There was the same hustle in the swiftness with which plates were cleared, no sooner had one put one's fork down, and wine was relentlessly topped up: All one had to do was to take a sip before a chap in uniform darted forward to pour a top-up for everyone. How transparent can the drive to get you to order multiple bottles be! This may seem like carping (no pun intended) but the delivery of every course involved ordered dishes being placed before the wrong person, a sure sign of dysfunction, inattention, and basic disinterest in the paying diner. After dinner, not much later than 10, we wanted a drink at the bar while we waited for our ride home to show up, only to be told that the bar was shut. So the six of us crossed the street and had a drink at City Lobster instead...where the bar was wide open and the service professional. As for the food...frankly, it was irrelevent. When a night out turns out to be a lesson in unprofessional service, who cares about the food. (For the record, I did have a bowl of ramen noodles when I got home, so draw your own conclusions.)

    Disappointing

    Lovely restaurant but very average food. Poor service...really slow. The worst Oysters Rockefeller...We would never return or suggest it to our friends.

    A good idea gone sour

    Oceana, once the pride of seafood lovers is no more. Recently moved to a new locale, this once staid establishment that prided itself on creatuve seafood dishes and impeccable service is quite literaly a total disappointment and not worth 5 minutes of your precious time. Having to wait atleast 20 minutes beforoe a waiter appeared to offer a drink, this overpriced loud noisy appearance without substance its former self falls flat on quality yet asks for a rediculous amount of cash for mediocrity. Again, waiting for simple cocktail sauce for my fish (fresh - are you kidding?) I could have finished War and Peace. The fish was dry yet of course expensive and so it the wine. The bread was actually ok. Dont waste your time at this place - Capt Jacks fishs fry at home is a better choice. I feel sorry for the tourists who may be misled by the "top 10 tourist restaurants..." Keep your money and your appetite for anything else.

    Great Client Seafood Spot

    I agree with the below that says avoid the back room if you want to sit with a nicer crowd. You have to get raw bar and save room for dessert. Enjoy!

    Will definitely go back again

    The food was fresh and delicious, atmosphere and service was good. An enjoyable meal all in all. Definitely would go back again.

    Very Nice

    The food is very professionally presented and fresh. Avoid the back room where they stick the tourists and cheap wanna-be foodies. The front had a business crowd that my boss appreciated. Good desserts too.
