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.

Our bill for two people ended up costing $330 with the tip. They charged $8.00 for Valet Parking only to have us stand around for close to 30 minutes before we finally asked where our car was. Everyone else who had come out after us had already received their cars and left, yet they never asked what we were waiting... More

I am not a sea food lover but I had the halibut topped with the black and bleu and I can not stop raving about it. My daughter shared her crab cake with me and it was delicious and I do not like crab cakes but their food is outstanding!

Our dining experience was less than enjoyable because of wait staff pushy approach to our wine choices. Expect a loud somewhat distracting environment. Seafood is very fresh and well prepared.

We went on a Monday at 6 and it was empty, which was nice. It was quiet and the service was fast. We started with the tequila ceviche which was delicious! They do fill the bottom of the bowl with lettuce, so it looks like a lot more run you get. They bring out a veggie snack and some bread.... More

Our group of 6 diners recently visited Oceanaire for Restaurant Week. Our table had a full window view of bustling downtown which only added to the wonderful ambiance. Our party enjoyed the seafood platter and then ordered off of the Restaurant Week special menu. The seafood platter was abundant with a generous selection and fresh assortment. Which is hard to...

The staff is amazing John, Mario, and Kat are all fantastic. They always take great care of me while I'm there. Here are my favorites on the food... More

Service is excellent. But food sounds better on the card than it is for real. We tried the halibut with caramelized onions, the Dynamite swordfish for entrees and the seafood platter (oyster, lobster, shrimps and Alaskan King Crab) for appetizer. We can't recommend them. If you are looking for a place with a great seafood (natural flavors and also creative... More

Oceanaire is a beautiful restaurant, but I would not go back there again. The food was nothing spectacular, just about average, but the prices were exorbitant. Everything was a la carte, with the exception of a couple of entrees. The side dishes were small and not enough for a party of 5. I had the crab cakes which tasted old,... More

They have happy hour prices all night at the bar. Good wines by the glass. Had the fish tacos which were just ok. Mario the bartender was really engaging and we had a good time with him.

While visiting my son from Florida, we had dinner here to celebrate his 33rd birthday. The food and service was excellent. Every aspect of the evening was first class!
