We get to Indy a half-dozen times a year, and hit here probably every other time we're in town. Seafood as fresh and wonderful as it gets. Good drinks, nice specials, great ambiance, attentive service...it's all fantastic. One comment on service...when you ask a patron if they've dined with you before, and they say, "Yes," don't go over every item... More

I had a very good lunch at the restaurant, I asked a cod that was fantastic. Try the bread pudding with toffee syrup. I recommend it.

The sturgeon was good but should have had it without the chef's specialty found the huckleberry sauce to be too sweet for me. Asparagus was good thought green beans were bland.

I had a nice meal with colleagues -- attentive service and a truly artful and tasteful meal -- great pairing of fish, beans and chorizo! I have eaten at an Oceanaire in DC on a couple of occasions previously and I think I might prefer the overall ambience of that location over the Indy one. That being said, nice evening... More

The NYE dinner was quite disappointing. This place is hit or miss on food quality, menu options, and pricing. I've had great experiences here, and questionable. In all, usually decent seafood for Indy, but if it's an off night, it's really off. Not my first choice, or second, for date night, but likely to me moderately impressive.

Disappointed in our meal. We were not told of the limited menu in New Year's Eve. Not many choices. Ravioli came out cold. Blah I could go on. But for $85 for four courses a major rip off. Our waiter just seemed to want to drop off our plates from a buffet line and wouldn't check back. Didn't even care... More

Paid a high price to have a fixed menu on NYE dinner with my wife . Even had to give my credit card in advance to hold the table on NYE. Had an 8pm reservation. We were seated at 8:30pm . First were told they were out of the caviar so we ordered our meal . Waiter came back about... More

My wife and I love the diverse menu offered by this restaurant. The waiter was fantastic. They were good enough to move our reservation up even though the restaurant was crowded. The food was absolutely fantastic and the price was more than fair. We will return.

I ate dinner here with some colleagues whilst visiting a trade show. The food was good but not of the standard I would expect for the prices paid. My colleagues had chowder as a starter that they enjoyed and I had the escargot. We all had different fish meals, which were not cooked that well. I had the swordfish, which... More

Description
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.
