We came across The Oceanaire during our visit to Denver last week and decided to give it a try. Our waiter was Brendan and he was excellent.

Took my wife there for dinner on a Friday evening. The restaurant was approximately 10% occupied. Service was good; food was good. However, the price you pay for the value to get is just not worth it. If you want great seafood for a reasonable price in Denver, go two block away to Ocean Prime on Larimer Street.

Ate late with a large group from a business meeting. Staff accommodated us without hassle despite no reservation and service was good. Food above average. No pressure to leave despite staying late. About what I would expect for reputation/cost; I've eaten at others in this chain and would do so again.

We ate at the bar here the other night before attending a show. By 5:30pm, not a seat was left, so we were lucky to nab the last two. We ordered several oysters from the east and west coast--all were fresh. I loved the calamari, and the HH price is reasonable. Everything we had was delish. My only negative would... More

I was a little underwhelmed at this seafood joint - maybe my expectations were too high. The service was only okay - the waiter actually dropped a dish at our table and broke my wife's martini glass, spilling the contents everywhere-and stated, "accidents happen". Pretty much set the tone for the remainder of the night. The food was presented well,... More

We were in town on business and a group went to eat here after being referred by our hotel. The hotel gave us coupons for a free calamari appetizer. The manager stated that they would allow for one free calamari per table and not per person. That was okay, but then the calamari was rather average. Although the food was... More

While in Denver, get the best seafood available in the City. The Oceanire Seafood Room is the best place to get good fresh seafood, only a short walk from the Downtown Convention Center. Great service and great quality. Pricey but worth it.

This place operated like a well oiled machine. It was magical to watch. They were extremely busy, but there was so much focus and organization in the entire process. This restaurant was run like a piece of art in motion. We first went online to try to reserve a table and since we waited until the last minute, there was... More

The Oceanaire is lovely. The decor takes you back to days I wasn't alive for and I like that. The food is amazing. Our waiter was impeccable. They made our anniversary special with a card and our menus said Happy 25th Anniversary at the top!!
