My mother and I went here on Halloween hoping to see the other side of Indianapolis--Fine Dining! (Don't get us wrong, we love Colts Grill and fun places as such). When we arrived were were welcomed with a dark, warm, blue atmosphere. We were seated right away and met our waiter, Jeff. Jeff was FANTASTIC. Never pushy and beyond helpful.... More

I can't believe this place is ranked 161 out of 2011 restaurants. We loved it. We were downtown for an event so made reservations here. The raw bar appetizer is amazing. Fresh, simple and plentiful! I had the crab cakes for main course and the crab meat was lumpy and delicious! Hubby had the mahi and there wasn't a crumb... More

Service was great and so was the food. A little pricey, but a great selection for special occasions. The atmosphere is elegant/casual. They have valet parking for 8.00. Overall, I enjoyed everything. PS: be sure to try the Shrimp and Grits!!

The staff was top notch. The chef was very creative and accessible. The options, flexibility and specials made the order taking a longer than usual process, not a bad thing and was worth it. The wait or was knowledgeable and helpful. Will definitely stop in again next time I am in town.

Our latest visit to Oceanaire Indianapolis was mostly satisfactory. Had a short wait for our table, but this gave the opportunity to enjoy a cocktail in the expansiver bar area. Menu diverse, food first-rate. Only issue was our waiter who failed to suggest wine with dinner or coffee with dessert. He missed out on a better tip through his inattention.... More

The seafood was good and fresh. My husband had crab cakes that were outstanding. I had scallops but were mediocre. They were expensive so I was a bit disappointed. The ambiance was classy and the waiters were attentive. I don't think I will go again though.

I love the location, the menu selections and the professionalism of the waitstaff. I was expecting a run of the mill meal since this is part of the Landry brand of restaurants but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality and service. This is not your average restaurant. I highly recommend it for anything from business to romance.

I was not expecting to find a really good seafood restaurant in Indianapolis, and was very pleasantly surprised. From the moment we walked in we were greeted and served very well. The selection of seafood was excellent, with fresh fish from places as far as Equator and Hawaii. The preparation in each case showed that they knew how to cook... More

I had dinner here with a couple of business associated. We had tried another location but most restaurants were busy due to a major concert in town. I should note that the restaurant was able to get us a table without having reservations. The Oceanaire is definitely on the pricier end of eating establishments but most of us can handle... More

My wife and I ate here as a pre-concert dinner. We hadn't been in over a year but it was a wonderful meal. My wife's fish was tastefully seasoned. My steak was perfectly done (really one of the best steaks at a seafood restaurant I've ever had). The service was attentive but not intrusive and gracious with a problem or... More
