We stopped here for dinner and fell in love. The service was great and the food is Delicious! We started with three (3) types of oysters and each variety was succulent! Great tasting, fresh seafood in this land locked region is hard to come by but Oceanaire gets daily shipments and those oysters alone are reason enough to come back.... More

THE place to celebrate! They manage to make everything special with extra attention, announcement menu in a bow--memorable! The new halibut was tiny but fantastic! The monk fish "osso bucco" was tough and relatively tasteless. Pricey meal to have such varied reviews on the main course. Excellent wine list!

We made a reservation at Oceanaire for my wife & mother's birthday dinner. The ambiance is very cool, with blue lighting behind the bar and a raw bar surrounding the bar stools. Service was top-notch, and the food was solid. We started with ceviche and shimp & grits. The ceviche was very fresh and flavorful, and the shrimp & grits... More

First time visit to Oceanaire, and very impressed. The decor and ambience are very welcoming and open, and we subsequently found that normal conversation was very easy - not always the case in a crowded restaurant. We started with a selection of oysters from 3 different locations - they were all very good and our favorite was the Kusshi from... More

Oceanaire has a very nice happy hour with excellent appetizers and 5$ drinks. Had the shrimp and fries , plus crab cake sliders. Both were excellent. If you are in Denver and looking for a nice snack or dinner good place to go.

We love The Oceanaire in San Diego where we live, so this seemed like a no brainer. Great service at the bar for fresh seafood, appetizers and cocktails. The topper was I left my brand new iphone on the bar when we left, and the manager tucked it away in his safe until I was able to return to get... More

We enjoyed this restaurant a lot. We were greeted at the door by a very friendly young man. We were seated immediately. The waiter (Alan) stopped by to take drink orders and answer any questions. While he was getting our drinks the asst. server (Adam) brought us a basket of bread. Our waiter answered all of our questions and I... More
