“Fantastic food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Our food was so delicious, I wish we had discovered this place before our last night. The portion sizes are huge, be sure to save room for dessert.

Outstanding food! The service was mediocre but the food was so delicious we returned for a second meal, and that time the service was good.

“Had High Expectations and they were Exceeded”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

We looked at reviews on trip advisor because we got a 10% off flyer at the airport. Reviews looked good so we tried and were not disappointed. We went on a Thursday evening about 6pm and was sat immediately. They put us at a table upstairs right by a window. Perfect table to for two. The waiter was nice and knowledgeable but not what I would consider 5 stars but adequate. The atmosphere was very nice upstairs but not extravagant. The waiter said he was taking us to the Presidential Suite which of course he was joking but it was considerably nicer upstairs compared to downstairs. He recommended "Oceana's Favorite Oysters" $9.50 for a half dozen which we went with. "Freshly shucked Louisiana Oysters on the half-shell, chargrilled over an open flame, smothered with our unique zesty garlic and cream herb cajun sauce, finished with a fresh blend of Parmesan and Romano cheeses." These were to die for. The sauce is something I could drink.... Should have ordered more but didn't want to ruin our mean. But, could have just eaten these all night. The crab cakes were his other recommendation so my wife chose the meal “Jazzy” Crab cake Platter $19.00 topped with fresh crawfish mushroom cream sauce! Served with roasted garlic potatoes and vegetables...... I went with his recommendation of the house specialty, Redfish oceana $18.50 Sautéed redfish topped with a
crawfish mushroom cream sauce. Served with roasted garlic potatoes and vegetables.... Both of these dished did not disappoint. We are neither crab cake eaters or fish eaters in general but we are now....at least at Oceana's I don't know how to describe all the flavors but I can say they were excellent. The sauces here are unbelievable. I think that is what really makes the dishes what they are not to mention the food is cooked correctly. Overall we highly recommend Oceana's. We had the items above, two beers a piece. Got the 10% off and tipped about 20% and our total out the door was $80.00 Honestly the best $80.00 meal I can remember. Will come back next time we are in NOLA!

“Don't let the long line put you off”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

We had a great breakfast there, enjoyed it so much we went back for dinner a couple of days later then had breakfast again today.

Great service, friendly staff, very well cooked food and big portions at reasonable prices, what's not to love.

We're going to be back a couple more times before we depart home to London.
