I am a fan of Oceanairre restaurant and encouraged my business associates to have dinner this past week. The restaurant moved to a new location, still downtown but now on the street level. My first impression walking in was not the same as when visiting their prior location. It lacked ambiance.
We had a reservation and were seated immediately, water soon to follow. Server came within acceptable time frame. That's when things changed. We had to ask our busboy to get the server, (not my normal experience here). She did come and take our orders, was professional etc. We then waited for food longer than expected (even other tables received their orders before us). She never stopped by to explain the delay.
The food was still excellent and even worth the wait. However, there wasn't a reason for the poor service. She was not overloaded with tables and the restaurant was not extremely busy.
although I certainly would still return to this restaurant because of the food, I would temper my recommendation with the possibility of poor service.
