The dishes are on the smaller side but the flavor is incredible for everything. Desserts are share size. Quiet setting. Great place for business dinner.

Not worth the price. This place used to be great but the food was bland at best, the service was slow, and the drinks were mostly ice.

This is a special occasion restaurant. The food and service was outstanding, and the prices reflect that. We started with piping hot bread and butter. I ordered the crab cakes and my husband ordered the filet. Nothing is included with your entree other than bread...More

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.
