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.

Fresh seafood and menu is based on what is flown in daily from their suppliers. had the calamari and spicy tuna poke appetizer both wonderful. Followed up with a Sesame Crusted seared ahi - amazing. Try the cheesy bacon potatos, a real treat. Had a "Blackberry Smash" to drink - very refreshing... read more

My husband and I had dinner at Oceanaire and we weren't disappointed. My husband had the Stout Old Fashioned and I had the Pomegranate Martini. Great drinks! We were served bread and a relish tray. He had the tuna and loved it. I had the special which was crab bisque, a 6 oz filet and a crab cake and dessert.... More

My wife and Iwent to Oceanaire for a special night out and we weren't disappointed. Food, service, atmosphere --- everything was great. My wife had scallops which she loved, and I had steelhead trout which was excellent. Appetizer was different and very tasty and we had some terrific, creative cocktails. We're definitely going back.

This was our second time dining at Oceanaire, and the first experience was much better. Honestly, we probably won't return for another meal. The experience started out well, with delicious bread and an ahi poke appetizer. From there, it was rather disappointing, especially for the price. They were out of the wine that our waitress recommended, then it took forever... More

The Oceanaire is one of the premier seafood restaurants in the Denver Metro area. Geographically, Denver is surrounded by plains and mountains and deserts. In spite of the fact the nearest... More

Located far away from the coast this Denver Seafood restaurant offers a great menu. Wide selection of fresh fish. I have enjoyed superb oysters and a wonderful mahi mahi. So if you're up for something else than steak this is the place to go.

We have been to this restaurant twice-- it keeps getting better. Our waiter knew about my garlic allergy from our booking-- they actually read the notes.

On waitress' recommendation, ordered evening's special, lobster pot pie. Served in crock size of an espresso cup...3-4 small nibbles of lobster, for $45++ Very slow service, hour and half to serve entree, almost missed concert despite making reservation two hours early as recommended on restaurant website

I grew up on the northern california coast, so I am a bit of a seafood snob. Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical of seafood this far inland! But this place exceeded expectations. The salmon was perfect. Crab legs looked good too. We had their signiture drink...some sort of martini with dry ice. As a beer drinker, i usually do... More
