Under the guidance of the Livanos family and Co-Owner Paul McLaughlin, Oceana has provided New Yorkers with an exceptional seafood destination since 1992. Oceana's a la carte menu, coupled with its convenient Midtown/Theater District location, make it a perfect spot for a quick business lunch or pre-theater dinner. From the spectacular marble bar to the fresh lobsters and whole fish cooked to order, as well as a significant selection of prime meats, the team delivers a fresh, innovative and approachable menu. Oceana has a 70 seat Cafe with a 18 seat marble bar. Great for lunch, after work cocktails & snacks, pre-theater dinner and post-theater desserts. An award winning international wine list

We were looking forward to dining at Oceana, the restaurant is sleek, right near 30 Rock and seemed like it would be a happening and lovely place to dine. It's possible that our experience was unusual, but the service was very slow (but very friendly)...More

As I remember there is a step behind the the hostess station as you enter the dining room. I don’t remember if there is a ramp at the other side of the bar area. I would call and verify access.
