This is a very large restaurant that yet feels somewhat intimate. Seafood reins here and it is superb. A whole grilled dorado, boned table side, with roasted asparagus, was excellent. So was an unusual lobster with pasta bolognese. Service here is in keeping with the...More

We loved the ambiance, the service, and the food at Oceana. It was perfection! They hosted my son's 30th birthday and got us to the theater on time!

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.
