Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, Alaskan Steak-cut Halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.

I celebrated my birthday at this great restaurant. I had the steak with oscar topping and the peanut butter pie. The service was fantastic and the food served at perfect temperature.

January 10th is my birthday and my husband took my kids and I to this restaurant. I was a little nervous whether or not our young kids would behave let alone have menu selections for them. Total experience was great. Valet parking, coat check, then each kid picked out their menu item and received colors too to use to pass... More

Not only was every part of the meal delicious...our server Scott was one of the best we've encountered. He is extremely knowledgeable about the meals, beverages, everything! We would go back in a heartbeat! The spinach salad was amazing! crab cake was amazing! It was definitely pricey...but well worth the service and food.

My husband and I have visited the Oceanaire Seafood Room in downtown Denver a couple of times, once for our anniversary, and just lately in October 2014, for my birthday. Both experiences have been excellent! We experienced wonderful service, exceptional seafood, and a relaxing, enjoyable ambience! We recommend it highly!

We had dinner at the Oceanaire while visiting our son in Denver. Our meal was really good although it was quite pricey. The menu is printed daily because they fly in their seafood on a daily basis and they are committed to use only sustainably caught seafood. We ordered soup, and a couple of their fish dishes and the meal... More

I had attended a show at the Denver Performing Arts Center by myself, and walked across the street. Without a reservation, I was offered a seat at the bar, where I could order from the full menu. I felt comfortable and enjoyed delicious scallops. I will be back, the next time with a reservation.

We have frequented the Oceanaire for the past five years. It is our first choice for oysters in Denver. It is the perfect spot for dinner before the theatre or symphony as it is almost across the street from the venues and the restaurant will hold your car until after the event. My wife and I particularly enjoy the style... More

We hosted my father's birthday at the Oceanaire last month and he is still raving. The atmosphere was as wonderful as the food, wine, and service. You must visit if your intent is to impress.

We went for our wedding anniversary. The waiters were friendly and helpful, great advice for our choice in wine and food. Delicious flavours. Nice atmosphere, busy at Christmas time, yet gave us a corner table, away from the crowds having group dining. The decor and lighting is lovely. A place to go to celebrate that special something, it is top... More

Maybe the food is good? Unfortunately my husband I will never know and we won't be back. We sat at the bar for about 10 minutes and no one said "Hi" or asked to take or drink order and in fact it really felt as though the employees were avoiding eye contact. I realize they were busy (it's Christmastime and... More
