We were celebrating a friend's 80th birthday, and the evening was almost perfect. There was a little lag as we entered the restaurant when no one seemed to address that we were there. Our personable server more than made up for the early few minutes. In addition to the food being delicious, the attention to the birthday was great--a personalized... More

I really enjoy every visit to Oceanaire. The drinks are well crafted, oyster selection is always great and oysters come properly shucked (without shell bits and grit) and the staff is very pleasant and always professional. I prefer to sit at the bar, but have experienced the same exceptional service in the dining room. Great date night restaurant.

While being a little expensive this is the only place in Indianapolis that you're going to get really fresh seafood. The lobster tails are humongous. The oysters are so fresh they melt in your mouth. I really recommend going.

Oceanaire is nice, the food is good, wait staff was a little on the pushy side. He always seems to be in a hurry, didn't want to take time to make sure you understood what you were ordering. He wasn't bad, but didn't add to the experience in a positive way. I had the swordfish, not the best I've had... More

If you have money to burn then this is your place. Everything is very tasty and imaginative but about 30% higher than it should be. Our waiter was rather gruff and inattentive but the bus person was trying to cover for him. Not crowded but service was slow.

My husband and I went here on a Sunday for date night and it was lovely. The atmosphere and the lighting is exceptional and warm. The blue lights make you feel like you're getting truly the best oceanic experience ;) and on Sundays they have dollar oysters but go early because these sometimes sell out, they are that popular! If... More

The fish is fresh and well prepared. The service is oustanding. The menu is always changing and they print it twice a day as the catch tends to vary. It's a terrific dining experience. You won't be disappointed.

Our party of eight, really enjoyed our meal at Oceanaire. We started with the appetizer platter and it was really good with very fresh seafood. No one at the table was disappointed with their meal. We had a variety of the various fresh fish, grilled platters and delicious sides. If you save room for dessert, plan on sharing because they... More

We have been here for lunch previously and were somewhat disappointed in the portions and flavors, but decided to give it another chance. We had a great waiter who took great care of us throughout the lunch. I was very unhappy that the crab mac and cheese (which was one of the reasons we went) was not available. The waiter... More

My husband and I went last Friday night. We often visit Indy for the weekend to get away and enjoy some nice food and shopping. We walked in around 6:45pm and there was barely anyone in the restaurant (this should've been a hint). We ordered a shrimp appetizer and it was extremely fishy to where we could barely eat it....

As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.
