My wife and I dined at the Oceanaire before an event at the DCPA. Even though I planned on plenty of time to dine and make the show, I must say they were very accommodating if we needed to hurry. As for the food, it was good, not great. We shared a $19 shrimp cocktail. For the price I though... More

The appetizers were great (the shrimp cocktail and oysters Rockefeller), but the 2 pound lobster special was a joke. The claws were already taken off and the meat was stored in the head cavity. After their disassembly of the claws, there was hardly any meat left at all. The lobster tail meat was mushy and completely shrunken (again, hardly any... More

Went to the restaurant because they were offering a 4th of July special, a prifixe menu for two. We were greeted with an interior that was open and inviting. All the staff were attentive and friendly. The selection on the prifixe menu was varied and offered enough for my friend who has a seafood allergy. Wine was very good. Favorite... More

An impromptu stop during a recent business trip to Denver. This place was top notch. I recently made a trip to downtown Denver for a business meeting and after a reception on the first night, of our arrival, a small group of us opted to grab dinner. Oceanside was just across the street from The Four Seasons Hotel where we... More

Seafood was excellent this evening. Crab Cocktail appetizer was outstanding. Scallops and shrimp scampi were tasty. Key lime pie was perfect. Creamed corn and Au Gratin potatoes were yummy. Three people, no alcohol... $160 total. Good location by Four Seasons downtown Denver. Service was the slowest I've ever experienced, reportedly because they didn't realize the convention center was hosting attendees... More

My wife and I went for Valentines day I have to say the services was by far the best I've seen in Denver. We arrived 45 minutes early planing on having to wait for our table. WE walked in and were greeted with a very pleasant atmosphere. We were seated immediately. We celebrated a wonderful evening together with top notch... More

The place is clean, comfortably elegant but not pretentious. The service is impeccable. The chef does an amazing job with virtually every type of seafood they serve, in my humble opinion. The scallops and oysters are tops. It's one of our absolute favorite places in downtown Denver for dinner and our first choice for seafood. My brother, I and our... More

Everything was excellent. The food, the wine, the free birthday dessert and the staff were all top notch. I would love to return every time I am in Denver.

We love sitting at the bar and enjoying some oysters or the giant shrimp cocktail and fun cocktails before a show or dinner!
