We stopped by Ocean Zen for happy hour after a day of travel. It was fantastic. We ordered the appetizer sampler - all of it was delicious, a salad, and a spicy tuna roll.

Chef Johnson is an amazing chef with his hand in the heartbeat of todays Asian Fusion cuisine. Honesty some of the best sushi I've ever had and coming from me that's saying a lot, his app's and main course meals are works of art and my favorite when he has it is the butter fish!

Weve eaten here several times, and we're never disappointed. The menu has a wide variety, and we haven't had a bad meal yet. Pricing is reasonable, and food quality is excellent!

This restaurant/bar has a wonderful asian ambiance. Fresh seafood and excellent steaks accompanied by unusual side dishes are to be found here. The bar area is an upscale place to have drinks or watch a game.Very enjoyable evening! Get a reservation especially during the holidays.

The decor was upscale but unpretentious. We got a booth next to the large fish take which was entertaining. We got the wild monkey roll which was spicy and savory. We devoured the Blue crab and cream cheese wontons. ( crab Rangoon) The sauce was the scale tipper. The menu was a fusion of Asian, French and Italian. We went... More

Both done to perfection. The tuna was a bit over peppered but after the first bite I just scraped some off and it was delicious. Filet was... More

An odd title I know. My husband wanted to go there just for specific sushi we had gotten there a year ago. He ordered three Sushi items and found out that the one he was really wanting they were all out of after the fact.
