Very friendly staff and pretty cool atmosphere. We ordered the red fish platter and the crab cakes platter. The red fish was HUGE and very tasty! Definitely worth every penny. The crab cakes...woah! Some of the best I've had. The garlic potatoes and veggies were nothing to write home about, but the crab cakes were worth bragging about!

Warm environment and our server Briget T was very nice! Also this place has the best crap cakes we've had in a long time. Tasty!!! During our 2nd visit the following night we sat at the bar and enjoyed more crap cakes. The bartender Daniel was great!!!

Not the best I have ever had in New Orleans but New Orleans had some pretty good eating establishments. Will say Kim our waitress was awesome. The charbroiled oysters while not the biggest had a really nice flavor. Again Kim was great. Sometimes your waitstaff makes all the difference in your eating experience. Also open late which is great.

This place is fantastic! Hard to find good fried catfish in the quarter at a casual eatery! Light, fresh, buttery with a crispy batter!! Red beans and rice were uneventful but the service is out of this world!!!

Oceana was recommended multiple times during our visit to New Orleans so we figured we had to stop by and see what all the fuss was about. When we arrived we were greeted by their very lovely and friendly staff. I ordered their famous oysters since I had never tried chargrilled oysters before. My fiancé ordered a grilled Cajun alligator... More

We went to Oceana Grill because we heard good things about from the locals and we were very glad we did. I had Oysters which were right on the money and a Blackend Steak as my entree wihich was cooked perfectly. I will go back the next time I'm there!

A shopkeeper in the French Quarter recommended Oceana Grill and we're so glad we listened! We had lunch there. Fun, casual atmosphere, FANTASTIC food, very friendly servers. I recommend the red beans and rice. We were lucky it was so close to our hotel, because after all that great food and a couple drinks, we needed a nap!

The restaurant was casual but the seafood was amazing. The red fish was so fresh I could taste the ocean. The whole meal was cooked and seasoned so well it was like a party in my mouth. I generally like seafood but this was amazing. Good local beer, too.

The cocktails, appetizers, and entrées were excellent! The wait to be seated was short because it's a large restaurant and the staff is friendly and attentive. Also, they leave discount cards at the hotels that you can take in to save a few bucks...we will be eating there again on our next visit.
