This is my favorite Valentines date, my favorite anniversary date, my favorite birthday meal, and my favorite food I've ever put in my mouth. As for the food, the sushi is amazing. So fresh and flavorful. The appetizer platter is loaded with the most savory, delicious foods I've ever put in my mouth. Beautifully plated with all kinds of different... More

Springfield is known for bulk and not quality for eating out and so it was a real treat to go to Ocean's Zen. I love seafood and was told by some people at work that they had a good seafood selection. I went there with some managers from work and the setting was quite nice with a very courteous wait... More

Excellent food, excellent presentation. We've eaten at several mediocre restaurants in Springfield, searching for a good restaurant. This is one. We ate there for lunch. We had the garlic and herb crusted shrimp linguini and the asiago cheese crispy panko chicken. Both were excellent. Even the ice tea was good, freshly brewed. BTW, the outside of the building is a...

If you want fresh seafood served with style and a bit of splash, this is a place to check out. The setting is well lit, especially appreciated for us aging diners who need a bit more light to see the menu. Menu selection extensive and Ocean Zen has an amazing bar area. At least 2 very nice aquariums to sit... More

The Ocean Zen has a great menu with real variety. I had a Mongolian Glazed rib-eye steak on a bed of mashed potatoes with green beans and a dijon cream sauce. I loved the green beans and the dijon sauce - tangy but not so much as to take away from the flavor of the meat. I ordered a medium... More

Will I go back? Absolutely. This is my favorite lunch spot particularly for business lunches. It has a classy atmosphere and outstanding food. I would love to recommend a single dish but I always try something different and have yet to be the slightest bit disappointed. The menu is updated frequently and the daily specials are always good. The most... More

We love seafood and this place offers the best selection. They don't fry everything up! Sea bass is my favorite. Service is always good and Sushis are fresh and tasty.

I've eaten at Ocean Zen often and love going there on my birthday. They have a wonderful wine selection and every meal is beyond tasty. The service is great and the surrounding pleasant. It's high on my list. Oh, and the presentation of the food is artistry at its best.
