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.

This was one of our dinner stops during a convention that we were in town for. Lousy weather the evening we went, so it was a good night to be inside eating some good seafood.

I decline to get a detailed review on this establishment only because I am from Florida and seafood is kind of my thing. I will say that the ambiance and the wait staff and the food items that I did have are good.

Went for their happy hour ($1 Oysters, can't beat that!) and had a few drinks. The male bartender (forgot his name) was amazing! He just made me whatever he wanted and they all were so delicious! He was worth the trip!

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed dinner there last night. Expensive at $175 for 2 (inc tip and with just one cocktail and one glass of wine ($17) but the food and dining experience was perfect! From the warm welcome upon arrival, to the wonderful decor and attentive waitress we enjoyed everything we ate and were so full, opted to... More

I've been on 2 occasions, both with superb food quality. Unfortunately, both visits were marred by mediocre service and the premium a la carte pricing does not pair well with 'mediocre' anything. This is a shame as the food really is that good! The menu has traditional and contemporary offerings that seem well executed. We had a large (10) party... More

We had dinner here on Easter weekend, which was also the 2015 Final Four weekend. Our dining experience was very sophisticated. The seafood was excellent, and it was a good show with the baked Alaska dessert. The servers were very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. I would definitely return for a special occasion. For seafood in Downtown Indy, this is the... More

If you want to drop $150 in a hurry, this is your place. You can have a three course meal with wine and be in and out in 60 minutes. I have rarely felt so rushed at a fine dining establishment in a long time. Julian told us six times there was no rush, all while hovering over us, bringing... More

Everything at Oceanaire is a la carte so things can add up quickly, but the food is very good. The seafood is very fresh, prepared in very nice ways, and served with professionalism and precision. The side dishes were good as well. I would definitely go back

My wife & son have been here twice before but my first exposure to this Indy gem. Lovely ambiance (love the blue lighting!), great service, and a tableside flambē Baked Alaska to complete the wonderful meal... The seared ahi deserves a special mention. Soy caramel sauce drizzled over the high sushi grade tuna was the best Iʻve had anywhere. Iʻll... More
