Exceptional seafood, tiny place

Ocean House never disappoints. Housed in a former railroad car-style diner, the food, service and vibe is wonderful. Seafood is always fresh and perfectly prepared. Heavenly.

Consistent, great seafood. It's a BYOB, which is awesome. Only problem, no reservations and it's a very small place. Get there at 5, put your name on a list, and Paula, the owner will call when your table is ready. Always delicious.

The food is delicious and the service terrific. Bring your own bottle of wine -- they will open and pour. There can be a wait - if you're willing to eat a little before 7, you will have a shorter wait and maybe no wait. Delicious seafood, great desserts, and wonderful service. Highly recommend.

Been here many times and have always found the food to be excellent and the service very good. The noise level makes it hard to have a conversation

A bit of a pain to get a table, but well worth it. They don't take reservations, but you can get there when they open and put your name in, and they call your cell when a table opens up. Very small and charming place. The food quality can't be beat, one of the best restaurants in Westchester county.

Glorious choices of fresh sea food, main dishes tastefully prepared so one doesn't lose the delicate flavors of the fish. Wonderful selection of oysters. The only problem is tables within inches of one another so there is not privacy in conversing with a dinner partner. This also means a noise level that is not conducive to pleasurable dining. Too bad... More

We pulled up to this place which was supposed to be a great seafood restaurant, and it looked like a tiny NJ diner. Inside, some of the BEST food we've ever eaten. GO THERE.

It was my first time at Ocean House. I went with friends who love the place. I found the tiny space extremely noisy even though it was only half full (early Thursday night). The food was good but nothing extraordinary, and the entrees were small for a $29 price tag. I chose the sauteed skate, maybe 4 or 5 oz... More

Great place, lovely staff, great food. It's tiny and they don't take reservations BUT if you stop by early you can get on the list for the day and come back at your time slot. Bring your wine with you and they'll pour if for you. Never fails to please.

I have eaten here several times a few years ago, but due to the reservation policy, have had a hard time getting in until tonight. My husband and I went for an early dinner to avoid the crowds. There were only two other tables seated besides us. Our waitress was very helpful and friendly. My husband had the grilled calamari... More
