I recently dined at Oceana with some business colleagues. For those of you who remember the original Oceana - the one with the 5-star luxury ocean liner feel to it - this is a different restaurant. I say that to set expectations, but also to be fair to the restaurant. The food is very good, with some interesting options. You will not be disappointed by the General Tso's Lobster - wow, fantastic! The fluke tartare was also very good.
However, while the food is solid, and the space relaxing, the service was a bit odd. Our waiter did not take a drink order at any point in the meal. Literally not once did he ask anyone at the table if they would like something to drink. How odd, and wouldn't the manager be upset to know that the waiter missed out on another hundred dollars of revenue? Our waiter also didn't seem to know how to break into our conversation to take our order, so we sat and talked, he lurked, and then we talked some more. We had to finally call him over.
All in all, I would go back. The service was not that off that it overshadowed the excellent food.
