We went to Oceana with a large discerning business group. This is fine dining at its best in NYC. Great food, slick service, excellent wine list.

My daughter wanted a seafood oriented place to celebrate graduation and I landed at Oceana, where I had not eaten before, but the photos and reviews suggested it would be a good place to celebrate, and it was. Very broad selection of sea food plus other dishes. Our party of three shared the three-for -$30 sampler of crudos and ceviche--very... More

Visited with my wife for an evening meal and thoroughly enjoyed the fishy part of the menu with all courses being extremely well presented. A helpful sommelier recommended a very nice and not pricey wine which went very well with our choices.

After seeing a show at the Birdland Jazz Club, we stopped at the Oceana Restaurant for dinner as it was on the list of restaurants from our hotel West 57th St Hilton Club. We arrived just minutes before they were closing but they accommodated us and sat us at a table by the window. As it was Mother's Day and... More

I went with some Business/Friends for lunch twice. Loved their lunch special menu. The Fish and Grilled Squid is mouth watering, scrumptious. Loved all their desserts too! Very reasonable priced especially being in a central location by Rockefeller Center. Service is excellent and the Manager comes around and ask how are things!

This is a beautiful room and reasonably priced. To our surprise both the service and food were excellent for the pre-theater menu. And portions were good, especially the mahi-mahi. Would go back next time.

It's been years since we visited NYC, so were seeking a NYC-worthy experience. The usual suspects were already booked up (I was really looking for a tasting menu experience), but I thought Oceana looked nice, and was walking distance to the hotel. The food was good, the service was fine. The only downside to the meal was the chocolate souffle... More

We picked this restaurant from a list supplied by our hotel. We wanted to find a place to dine before seeing a play so we checked out the menu online and decided to give it a try. The service was impeccable, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was impressive. It's not an everyday dining place; definitely for special occasions... More

Tuna tartare, trout all beautifully prepared / cooked, servings good size, not crazy. Good wine list and the service was the right side of attentive, not pushy! A good place.

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 with some 800 selections. Spring and Summer bring a 75 seat outdoor dining area, private dining options include our Chef's table for 4-5 to our Grand Salon for 80.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
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.
