This is a wonderful seafood restaurant, with a great selection of excellent choices. The service is very good, the setting lends itself to a romantic dinner. The wines and deserts were quite good.

We found this restaurant by looking through the suggestions from our room at the Hilton Grand Vacations Club. We made a reservation even though it had snowed a bunch and trudged on over, We were seated at a window table right across from Carnegie Hall. We were able to see all of the snow plows working and delivery guys trying... More

We had very enjoyable business dinner at Oceana recently. The restaurant design made it easy for us to maintain our discussions throughout the meal-- we appreciated the reasonable distance from other diners and the good acoustics. The food was delicious and the service was excellent-- everyone thoroughly enjoyed the meal.

A few of us stopped into Oceana on a busy Christmas weekend for a few drinks. The bartender was great, the drinks were great and the atmosphere was amazing. Midtown is a mob scene during Christmas weekends but if you are in the neighborhood stop in to Oceana. It was worth the stop.

We enjoyed lunch before a matinee. The wait staff did an excellent job and lunch was well paced. The atmosphere was quite nice. We enjoyed fish and chips which were very authentic down to being served on newspaper, in this case a plated lined with "The Financial Times". Nice touch.

My husband and I are always on the lookout for good places to eat in the theater district since we love the theater and hate tourist traps. Having had a pretty good business lunch there awhile ago I decided to try Oceana for dinner and we were very pleasantly surprised at how good it is now. They've managed to score... More

Oceana is a terrific seafood restaurant in mid-town Manhattan, convenient to the theatre district. The food is excellent and the service is impeccable. Several at our table had the monk fish pastrami style, served with pickled cabbage and rye noodles, capturing the essence of New York deli with the meatiness of monk fish.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
