beautiful atmosphere

The new building is beautiful. All the sushi is amazing. I specifically love the crazy roll, super crunch roll, and spicy squid salad.

The food quality and presentation is still outstanding but the dining experience at the new location is totally destroyed by the noisy atmosphere that is more like a food court in a crowed mall. When you have above average prices on your menu you should have above average accommodations. Your previous location had the finest dining atmosphere in town.

Food was so so for the price, Our server, Denzell, was wonderful and really made us all feel very special. He really knew how to work his table in a very creative way.

Ocean Zen has always been an extraordinary eating establishment, so we tried out their new "home" (it used to be Mr. Yen's) for my birthday dinner. We were not disappointed. There were four of us and we all tried something different. The steaks melt in your mouth and the mac and cheese is out of this world! The staff is... More

We had planned to go to Ocean Zen this evening but we learned that there was a 45 minute wait and we had to go and stand and wait there in-line rather than call in our name and wait at home; we decided not to go at all. Since we generally spend a couple hundred dollars there for a meal,... More

This place was recommended to us by a local. I ended up ordering the seared tuna dish. I was initially a little apprehensive about having seafood in a land locked town, but the dish exceeded my expectations. The portions were huge.

My wife and I had lunch at the new location for Ocean Zen. We were seated immediately. It's a beautiful restaurant. It does have a significant amount of seats around the edges that would, if the restaurant was busy, require you to be seated very closely to others. The restaurant was not extremely busy and no one was seated next... More

We went for an anniversary celebration. We had a separate room which was nice. When walking in the front door a very attentive young lady was there to direct and help. The decor was very refreshing and inviting. The food was delicious. There wasn't a salad that came with the meal but the meal was so good.

We were a group of 13 for a business dinner and were placed in our own room with a gorgeous fish tank divider. The wait staff was very attentive and quickly answered our drink and appetizer questions. We pretty much tried each of the appetizers and the ribs were the best of the bunch (falling off the bone and very... More

If you are used to going to the old location on Battlefield, like we were, don't! Its not there anymore, it has moved to a new location that is not far from the old place. It had been years since we had been there and decided to go for our anniversary and found they had moved. Well the food was... More
