“Nice place to meet after work”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

We go to Oceana quite often for an after work glass of wine. Great seafood and appetizers. The place can get busy at times and service starts to suffer. All in all it's my staple for one for the road.

“Give Yourself Some Time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We went with another couple of dnner. Our table had the rissoto as an entree and an apple-crusted white fish among other things. Overall, the food was very good, though the chocolate dessert was high on presentation and low on quantity. The service was very slow. It seemed like we waited fifteen to twenty minutes between every step of the process. (Being seated to drink order to food order to food delivery to dessert order, etc.). The final bill was on the pricey side. Overall, I would go again, but would like to see the service be a bit quicker.

“Amazing food ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Went here with friends... Food was amazing. The calamari is a must try. Some of the best I have ever had. I had the filet and it was cooked perfectly. Friends had the grouper and raved about it. Great wine list. Pricey for NYC.

“Oceania - Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

Went for a pre-show dinner and straight away the staff were quick to verify when our show was in order that we would be finished in good time. Went for the a la carte and the waiter was excellent with his recommendations. Great choice of oysters of the highest quality. Service and quality of food was just perfect, and the waiters were lovely to chat with. Highly recommended.
