Ocean Zen is a fabulous restaurant. Top notch gourmet dining that offers Pacific Rim cuisine. Beautiful surroundings that includes two huge salt water aquariums. Excellent service. Superb food quality that offers a variety of menu options.

I was expecting some good Asian food. Had the look, feel, and atmosphere. But me being Asian, the food was kind of, well gross. If you don't know Asian food, eat here. But if your looking for authentic food, this is not the place. Staff was really good and beautiful restaurant. Fun place to eat.

The food is so beautifully presented that you don't want to eat it. But when you do -- it is so very tasty. There is a huge fish tank to keep you diverted before and after ordering. This is my favorite place in Springfield.

Ocean Zen has some of the better sushi in Springfield and is the closest you'll come to proper seafood, in my opinion. Very nice, upscale, modern atmosphere that makes it great for a nice date night but also a good place to have a nice dinner with friends. Service has always been good and I've enjoyed every dish I've ever... More

I love Ocean Zen. Their Macadamia Nut Chicken is my FAVORITE meal by far in Springfield! It is delicious. Their sushi is great!

This place likes to sit the less glamorous guests in the crowded rear of their dump and treat them like lepers. I have been there about three times and they always seat us in the bowels in a crowded single room. I am usually with an older group (that could buy the entire facility if they chose) while the cool... More

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. We also had a few glasses of wine, of course. Service was speedy, attentive - they even have a coat check and held the door for... More

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.
