As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. 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, including steak-cut Alaskan 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.

Great seafood. Dessert needs some work.

The fresh seafood platter was great. Fun to eat and delicious, although expect only 2 tiny oysters and order oysters separately if you wanted bigger oysters. Escargot was already shelled when cooked was not my preference compared to traditional French style escargots. Swordfish was delicious with a... read more

Interior has art deco influence and a solid but typical rendering of seafood offerings. The drinks are way over priced.

We went to Indy for anniversary and happen to stumble on to this place accidentally after drinks across the street at Hard Rock Cafe. My hubby saw and said seafood sounded really good for dinner that nite. He saw an employee going in but was not open and asked if openings for the nite and said yes and asked if... More

Last minute recommendation from the concierge after my wife and I checked in at the Loews hotel. Brief walk from the lodging to our private booth onlooking the bar. Shrimp and grits: WOW! Lobster and Crab: WOW! Lisa our waitress: knowledgeable, funny, and charming. Thank you Lisa for the shrimp and grits recommendation. It was wonderful. The selection of wines... More

Went here with 13 people. Sat us at a table sized for ten. We had to ask to make the table bigger which they did. Slow to take drink order and slow on appetizers. Seafood tower was good overall but the oysters were so so. The Chefs special salmon was nothing better than I could have cooked at home. Nothing... More

We've been on many occasions but chose it again to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. We took several of our waiter's suggestions and were not disappointed in the least. The menu and wine list are very complementary, and there are some fantastic choices at all times on both. On this trip we had grilled Ono, which, as the waiter had described,... More

Dinner with business associates. Our party of five was crammed into a table we felt would be more suited for a maximum of four. Had to keep piling plates of food on top of one another. Dinner was good, fish portion was a bit small compared to other nicer seafood places I've eaten. Our party seemed pleased overall with their... More

Overall the dinner was done very well and the server was on top of her game. We were there for a business dinner; they were very accomodating for our party of seven. I enjoyed the atmosphere. This restaurant is obviously very pricey. For the price, I would have expected large main dish portion sizes. A bit disappointed in that regard... More

I've been to Indianapolis now about 8-9 times and this Resteraunt about 4 times. Outstanding bar before dinner. Food is fantastic. Very fresh oysters and really I've never been disappointed with anything in this very classy establishment. I like it a lot and fully endorse it although EE-USK in Oban, Scotland is slightly better food. Hey do them both and... More
