Our waiter was from LA and SO kind. He recommended a nice fruity drink for me-sorry, forgot exactly what it was! The food was amazing. Really cannot find anything to complain about. Seemed like a top notch restaurant for here in Springfield!

Any time we have out-of-town guests visiting, we always visit Ocean Zen. We are never disappointed with their reaction. Everything we have tried is fresh and delicious and the waiters are professional and helpful. When we want a special night out, this is out Go-To choice.

This restaurant offers one of the finest dining experiences available anywhere. The owner and chef learned his craft from his family who have a wonderful restaurant history and from his time spent learning and studying at the famous Roy's restaurant. They are in process of remodeling a building for a new facility that should add to the overall experience.

The service was excellent and the food was pretty good. My husband really enjoyed his meal. My steak was cooked well, but I did not care for their green beans which were much too sweet tasting for me. I enjoyed the atmosphere of the restaurant, the service, and the bananas foster. The prices were high enough that I would consider... More
