Hibachi style Japanese and sushi restaurant. Steaks, shrimp, chicken and sushi were all delicious and fresh. Service was very good. Water and boat views on the water at the the end of a peninsula. A little pricey but food was good for the price.

Food is very good. Service is very slow. More protection from mosquitoes and no seeums needed on the terrace. A very nice restaurant overall.

We used to love Ocean Star. And I always strive to write fair and balanced reviews. Ocean Star was our "go to" place for sushi for years. It has been about six months since we were last there, and the drop in quality was very noticeable. At first we thought it was under new management. Saw some of the same... More

I'll just start by saying, we used to love the old Ocean Star when it was on East bay. This one..not so much..the sushi was fine, but the hibachi. ..worst I've ever had. The "chef" cooked for my family of 4, start to finish cook time ...8 minutes..no show , no communication, slapping the spatulas and no shrimp appetizer that... More

We really liked the seafood here. I had the snapper and it was really delicious -- We got to sit out on the deck -- cool looking out over the expensive yachts and marina. They also have a hibachi grill and they do take reservations. All the food choices were good and they have an extensive wine list. Service was... More

Service was painfully slow, it took 20 minutes to get our drinks and close to an hour to get our sushi.

The Hawaiian roll and cucumber salad are the best! We all enjoy dinning here and sometimes place a to go order and pick up on our boat. The fish is fresh and everything is always delicious. Great water and Yacht view too.

Terribly slow. We had an 8pm reservation for 4. We arrived at 8pm and were told there was a 20 minute wait (after waiting 10 minutes in line to find this out). Asked if someone would get us at the bar when the table was ready. The hostess said "of course". 30+ minutes later we were still waiting. The hostess... More
