Nice ambiance and marina location

We enjoyed our dining experience and creative cocktail menu! Rainbow roll was very fresh, and restaurant had a fresh smell and feel. Views of yachts right outside at marina was elegant!

Have eaten here twice, once table dining (because the hibachi grill was out of order) and the second time at the hibachi. They just do things weirdly. Ordered scallops and they came on a plate with a doily under them. No idea what the point of that was other than to add a paper flavor to the scallops. The hibachi... More

Sigh……loved the food every bit of it. Our first time recommended to us by dear friends. HATED – being pressured to pay for a larger tip. Our check arrived with 21% gratuity. We asked for a bill without this added on. Sure, the revised check arrived. We checked bill, signed and paid 15% tip. Our drinks took 20min to arrive... More

This was our second time here. The first was in August. The sushi is fresh and very good. The Teriyaki Salmon is fabulous. Tempura is fresh and large portions. Eating outside by the marina is very pleasant. The service is friendly and good. There was something on the menu for everyone.

Island Ocean Star is located in the beautiful Galati Yacht basin. The sushi is delicious and the setting is perfect. The only thing to look out for is what you actually order, actually receive your order, and what you pay. We are locals and often get take out. Its been a handful of times now that we have been charged... More

Ocean Star has delicious sushi. Always crowded with locals and others from the yachts that are parked outside. Not always great about timely delivery of your meals.

It’s a new place, at least we haven’t seen it last year – lucky us. Waiting to get a table was almost 2 hours (they don’t take reservations), although we were promised not more then 30-40 minutes. Waiters do not know the menu, confused about dishes and made 3 mistakes in our order (brought wrong dishes). To make the matters... More
