Oceanaire Seafood Room - Dallas
Excellent as always! Food was perfect, service was fantastic.
Waiters and staff were amazing! Food was outstanding as usual. Very good atmosphere especially with it being full during Valentine's day. We were seated immediately as we had a reservation.
The presentation of the food was extremely good but the flavor of it was lacking! The salmon was tasteless. Your vegetables are excellent.
Always great food and dependable service. A sure favorite of ours.
Went there last year for Valentine's day.
This year - we got engaged.
This is a nice place for a date night. The ambiance is nice, and the food is really good. I was happy that a manager came by to check on our service. That shows engagement. This place is expensive. A shrimp cocktail with five shrimp is $21! Really the only other negative, was that the hostess seemed confused and unfriendly even though we had reservations. She needs some coaching on first impressions.
We went for Valentines Day and ordered appetizers, meal, dessert & wine. The service was outstanding from the hostess greeting, server and water/bus boy. Really appreciated the manager checking on us too. The appetizers were good- escargot & raw oysters. However the oysters were not the best quality - small and stringy. The filet and lobster (a special of 10oz filet & lobsters for 2) had good flavor however the steak was thin for a filet and mine had a strange taste. Mine was not cut from the same steak as my husband’s - and was even thinner. The desserts - creme brûlée & root beer float were awesome! Overall we had a great evening- just was a bit sad about the quality of my steak and my husband’s oysters. We will be back!
Many other restaurants in the area that are just as good and less expensive.
Valentines Day dinner
We have eaten here before and have enjoyed the experience and this visit did not disappoint we my wife had crab cakes and I had the wild Alaskan halibut both were excellent
They had a couple of large parties seated ahead of so the meal was a little longer than expected but we enjoyed our drinks and when the meal came we enjoyed had bred pudding for desert.
We would recommend
This was an overall good visit, but we felt that our waiter was a bit disconnected. This comment stems from a lack of warmth we felt when engaging with our waiter. Nonetheless, historically (and today’s visit included) the food has never disappointed me. Today’s visit was an indulging of the jumbo shrimp cocktail, NY clam chowder, crab cakes, Chilean sea bass, Brussels sprouts, and truffle mashed potatoes and all of it was absolutely great. We’ll be back.
Great food as always! Great service as always!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Food and service was outstanding. We knew it was ala cartel but wanted to try it anyway. We have gotten more for our money else where, however, the fish is about as fresh as you can get, the food was outstanding, our waitress was amazing, we would back just for the blackened halibut
We have been going to Oceanaire for a long time but it has been a while. The last few times the food was OK but nothing great. This time was VASTLY different. The food was much improved and the addition of an actual kid’s menu was an improvement also. I don’t know what happened between the last time and now but it was a welcomed improvement!
with great group of friends - and service and food/wine service was perfect - thank you
As is almost always the case, the experience was outstanding. First time that I have ever had chicken fried lobster. I highly recommend it as a boy from West Texas who grew uop on chicken fried steak.
Our server was very good and the food is always terrific! We asked for a quiet area and the hostess found one! All great! For a quick business dinner
Usually when we attend high end dining I’m usually still hungry as my lunch experience has been smallest portions for higher quality, but Oceanaire provided pretty good size
Great overall experience! We will be back!
We had a wonderful dinner with friends celebrating life. So much to choose from and awesome wine list. Food was cooked perfect and if you have never had Chicken Fried Lobster well your in for a treat. Don't forget to start with the backed Alaska because "life is uncertain!". Thank you to our waiter Thomas, he guided us well though our choices and made excellent suggestions.
In town for a conference. I am not much of the party type, and stay pretty close to the hotel when I travel, which is a pretty decent amount. The food was excellent and there was enough variety for me and some work mates to eat there 4 nights in a row.
Service was amazing. Great serving size will definitely come back when in the Dallas area!
Great food and service
A really nice dinner with great service. We enjoyed it! Thank you!
Service was off, especially given the price. At $125 per person (before drinks), food and service should be outstanding, not just ok. Very disappointing as the other times we have visited Oceanaire it has been excellent.
Overall: “Meh”. Fresh fish is why we came here. But the fish was not fresh, the portion was small and the presentation/garnish was a slice of lemon. Ho hum. The $11 Caesar salads were no better than a bag of lettuce with an homage to fromage on top. Our truffle mashed potatoes had that “gray” look and were not mashed but loose and so salty we could not eat them. At this point we decided to cut bait and skipped dessert. Service was attentive but not sophisticated. There are plenty of better restaurants in The metroplex where you can spend that $150. Move on.
Excellent food and customer service. We definitely will be back.
Great dining experience. A very good restaurant for business meetings.
Good food and service, small portions and high prices. I'm sure you guys have heard that before.
Great place to dine with customers. Wait staff was professional and food was excellant!
Fabulous meal. My favorite restaurant in Dallas. They do a great job with everything.
Overall the food was as expected. Nothing stellar, but nothing bad. I have dined here several times over the last few years, and the restaurant just seems to be losing its edge. The food was OK for the price, but the service for $100 a plate is lacking. The service was about the same as that of a chili’s. Leaving empty, plates on table, reaching across people to serve others, etc. Just not what it used to be... mossing the finish that is expected for the price.
Food & service were excellent! Best crab cake & gumbo in all of Dallas! Nice selection of wine by glass & bottle. One of our favorite places to go for date night.
Overall experience OK. Was on able to be seated where requested. Not my best visit.
Everything was outstanding! From the moment we were welcomed at the door until we left. We started with the chicken fried lobster as an appetizer. It is a definite must try and one of my favorites! My parents and I loved all of our food. Nathan and Amelia took care of us and made our experience very special. I can't wait to go back!
A place every Dallas resident should try at least once. Great fresh fish selection and super creative in preparations. For desert, you have to get the Bread Pudding. My wife and I don't even like bread pudding normally, but theirs is absolutely insane (in a good way)!
Nathan was incredible. He was the perfect waiter. The entrées were not as flavorful as I might have expected.
Great experience for a birthday dinner in a very modern, atmosphere.
I thought it was quite overrated. The meat was very salty and not tender st all. The biggest disappointment was that the server started to clean the table before everyone had finished eating. Almost as it we were being hurried up to leave.
