We had a large party, which can cause slow service and average food. The food was above average. Crab rangoon was excellent. I had the special - pepper crusted tuna and a filet. 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. Discouraged the waiter then brought out his Flying Fish Eggs which he didn't think was... More

Ocean Zen is a great restaurant! We took advantage of the special for $25, a 3 course meal. The appetizer of crab rangoon was excellent. I had salmon and finished the dinner with creme brulee which was heated at the table. Presentation of the food was first class. The waitress made it a special time as we hosted overseas guests....

We dined here as a business group and were asked whether we wanted sparkling or still water. We went for the still stuff. The food and service were great but when the bill came, we discovered that the still water was $6 a bottle. Now I have been to places where they serve their FREE water in bottles, so $24... More

Look, it's not your typical Springfield Restaurant. It's not about bulk food, but I've never wanted more. It's not about earning your dollar solely on the presentation yet the presentation and the food quality are both very high. The wait staff does ride the line between Missouri Friendly and Obnoxious sometimes, but at least they're attentive. I just really wish... More

This is a magnificent dinning experience. The sushi melts in your mouth. They have more of a variety than any other restaurant and the presentation is very professional. I have not tried anything but the sushi. It is very pricy. The service was good.
