Open and airy for a Manhattan restaurant. The menu choices sounded better than they tasted. Lots of root vegetables, for some reason. Great wine list. It was OK but we won't hurry back.

Oceana is a high end seafood restaurant that offers a combination of ala carte and designed plates. Raw bar is fantastic and seafood platters are more generous per person than noted on the menu. Lobster Risotto is a must for risotto lovers. Large chunks of lobster are found in every bite but portions are very appropriate. General Tso's is also... More

We went over with friends for drinks in the evening. The place has a great vibe to it and it was a good crowd for Tuesday evening. There was a decent wine selection and the comments around the cocktails were favourable. I would definitely go back to try their cuisine, local friends recommended it for seafood.

Some really good food and wine, some just ok. Paella was not your authentic kind. It was good but just not great. Service was good, not too loud, great location.

A quick note that deserves to be written. I only stopped off for a drink. Service was more than excellent! The waiter's name was Aaron. Hope the manager reads this.

We were 15 people with a reservation. I had a mixed seafood platter and lobster risotto and they all tasted great. My friends were also very happy. Service was great also. Will go back.

A friend and I dined at Oceana the evening of 1/2/2015. The restaurant accepts reservations via OpenTable, so there's no waiting. We were immediately seated upon entering the establishment. I ordered off of the Theater Menu which provided an appetizer, main course, dessert and wine for ~$70. I had the oysters as an appetizer and blackened shark with a side... More
