    The staff was excellent. They were patient with us ordering. We were catching up with old friends and took our time ordering. The food was excellent and fresh. The halibut and brazino were cooked perfectly. The pistachio dessert was superb. Pricey but well worth it.

    We had the Theatre Prix Fixe with wine pairing. Food was very good and the wine sommelier was absolutely delightful as he explained his choices for each of our three courses. Very much recommended.

    This was our first visit and we were blown away by the amazing food and the even more amazing service. The staff noticed every detail at the table and anticipated every need. The highlight was our waiter noticing that we were celebrating our daughter’s graduation. He brought a special dessert inscribed, “Congratulations.” What a beautiful way to end our evening. We will be back!

    Oceana was a random find on a Google search and turned out to be an excellent choice for seafood in the city. The selection of oysters was fantastic and we highly recommend the west coast choices. Dinner was filling but not overly heavy which made our after-dinner walk to Rockefeller Center bearable. Finally, the service was top notch. Our glasses never sat empty for long and the attentiveness was unmatched. Thank you, Oceana!

    Caesar said was good, the pistachio semifreddo was excellent, but the lobster scampi pasta was a big disappointment. When we asked about the size of the appetizer portion vs dinner portion, we were told it was about 3/4 the amount. We ordered the appetizer size. It was about 1/3 the amount! Plus the pasta was cold. If we sent it back, we wouldn't have made it to the theater in time.
