This restaurant is well appointed with a modern/contemporary feel. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone in our party ordered sea food, and to a person, they all agreed it was outstanding. The service left you wanting for nothing and it was warm and polite. I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation or qualification. Don't miss it!

My family and I went here before going to the theatre. We did the fixed price menu and it was amazing!!! All three courses were phenomenal and their cocktails were so tasty! I would definitely recommend Oceana, well worth the money.

I ordered the 3 part luncheon special. Everything was delicious. The bread is amazing and the waiter brought more bread without being asked. The service was exemplary. I highly recommend this restuarant.

We had passed this restaurant numerous times and thought it looked "cool" so we made reservations. It is a very chic place, with nice ambiance and the service was good. We were a bit disappointed with the food, especially for the price. Being a seafood restaurant, we thought the choices were somewhat limited. (We are from FLorida and used to... More

I've come here several times. Ideal for fish lovers, but also suitable for vegans and vegetarians, as staff is very collaborative. Excellent wine list. The food standard is always very high, both at lunch and dinner.

we had dinner with good friends on a tuesday evening. The restaurant was completely full, but we had a nice table and the soundlevels were very acceptable (we sat at the right side of the restaurant). The quality of the food was excellent, service was good despite the fact that the place was fully booked.

Great pre-theatre location. The staff are very intone to getting people in and out without feeling rushed. The food was good but not exceptional. Definitely a good choice when dining pre-theatre.

We went for a pre-theater dinner and had a wonderful meal. Service was as good as I've ever experienced. We had an early play-7:00 but they were sure that we got out in time to enjoy it. The prix fixe dinner options were great although we dined ala carte. We had the steamed halibut that was tasty and cooked just... More
