Took customers to Oceanaire for dinner. The meal was fantastic and the service exceptional. I only wish there were more room to move between tables and at our own table. We had one additional person join and we were hard pressed to make it work....More

Great seafood if you are in downtown Indianapolis. The waitress was great and provided great service. The restaurant was dimly light. It seemed a good place to go out on a date. The Malbec was excellent. I also ordered crab cakes and it was delicious.

This is a “go to” restaurant when entertaining customers in Indianapolis Service , food quality, location and atmosphere are all excellent. Decent selection of non sea food fare is available (steaks, chops) Desserts are very large and can easily be dated

This prices here are not for the faint of heart. Aside from that the seafood is very fresh and the service is great. I had not been here for a few years and on a recent visit to Indy decided to come back. We ordered...More

Not you normal pad Thai. Expected somewhat sweet but receiver very spicy, too spicy to eat. Only 4 scallops. I New it was not going to be inexpensive but the cost was not justified.

I wore jeans and a nice blouse. There were guests dressed in business attire and casual. I think as as long as you look nice you'll fit right in.

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.
