Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole. 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.

“Excellent food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Traveling solo, asked around for a good place to grab something to eat. I was not in the mood for a heavy meal such as steak so requested something in the lines of seafood/sushi. I was directed by a local to Oceanaire - great destination.

Service was very good and exemplary in speed- no long waits for beverages or food.

I started with a relish tray (complimentary), a sampler platter of 6 raw oysters - which were excellent and followed up with the highly recommended crab cakes. Once my main dish had arrived, I realized I forgot to order any side dishes to go with it.... However, the crab cakes were so large and filling that there was no need for anything else.

I will definitely be back for one of my next trips in town - preferably with friends!

“Must, must, must - Best Fish Tacos we have ever had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

My husband and I see out fish tacos wherever we go and thankfully someone at the W Hotel recommended the fish tacos at the Oceanaire. We ordered them as takeout after a White Sox game and they were phenomenal. Usually with a fish taco, the fish takes a back seat and all the toppings a sauce are the stars. Not in the case. The fish was to die for, the toppings were amazing, and the sauce was delightful too. So, so good.

“Irritated”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Very disappointed in our service last night!! Began with waiter bringing the wrong meal I ordered, followed with an attitude of just not caring! We ordered lobster and the waiter said, "I like to see people sweat for a little while on how they are going to remove the shell" before he offered to help....I wanted to tell him to go practice on someone else!! Especially disappointing as it was a special 21st birthday celebration for our son!
