I was still eating the salad when the meal arrived. Then, I placed the salad to the side and was still eating it when the waitress took it away. Then, the service was awful and we were waiting quite a bit. The waitress was busy on waiting another large table.

Everything was perfect. My sister celebrated her birthday in style! Food was great! Escargot, Oysters, shrimp and Alaska King Crab Legs ... as good as those I've eaten in Anchorage. Service was impeccable. It always is attentive and friendly but not intrusive.

Hands down was the best birthday dinner I have had in years. The food was beyond excellent and the service was top notch. We were shown nothing but stellar hospitality by all from the chefs’ and management to food runners, bartenders and servers and of course, Kaitlyn, our main server was knowledgeable and an overall delight. Bravo!

I only dinged them a star on ambiance because I was at the Seattle location several times before they were bought out and closed. It was like being on an ocean liner in a movie... The restaurant is more streamlined now, but I miss that surrealistic, incredible atmosphere. Never been anywhere like that since. However the food here was just as good, and the staff ARE excellent! I love the Oceanaire.

This was our first group dinner - overall a very enjoyable evening- we has great wine, good food and good company at our table. The service was excellent. The noise was too much but cannot be helped (we normally like to dine upstairs. Pls invite us to any additional groups as it s a chance to meet new people and enjoy one of our favorite restaurants

Anthony and his crew were amazingly attentive but yet not hovering or awkward. It is a fine balance, and this team had it. They were extremely cognizant of some food sensitivities which took care of the issue without undue focus or concern. The crab cake appetizers were easy to share (you get one per order but we ordered 3 for 6 people). All entrees and sides were cooked to order and the peanut butter pie was enormous and another good share. The ambiance for a business meeting of new associates was perfect; we were able to talk and get to know one another and since business was the primary purpose, this choice was great!

Food was incredible. We had a server who seemed to feel like we didn’t belong there. Name started with M, had a foreign accident. He treated the servers assistant/bus man (Antonio) like a dog. We tipped Antonio privately because He made our experience well enough to return. He works hard and makes sure All the customers are happy, regardless of class. He should be acknowledged.

Two things: The busser came by and reached across the table to get the two unused settings WHILE we were ordering. The staff knew the people sitting in the booth behind us, so it was a hangout place. Very unprofessional and put a damper on our dinner.

Came especially for the lump crab dish and it didn’t disappoint. By comparison I was in Maryland last month and rent the “state best “.lump crab cake and wanted to share the experience with a friend. The service was excellent and the menu had many outstanding choices. Great place for a fine meal!

Had the grilled sea bass. The topping sauce was fair at best. Not worth the $52.00 price. The asparagus was good. The crab cake appetizer was way too soft and mushy for my liking. Prefer a more firmer cake. The calamari was fair on the flavor scale. The key lime dessert was very light, good and plentiful. Most key lime desserts are pungent but this was on the lighter side of the lime flavor.

I knew when I heard they had over 500 reservations for Valentines Day, that this place should be great. We were not disappointed. We were cheerfully greeted when we entered and seated. The wait staff was knowledgeable and accommodating. The food was fantastic and delicious.
We will come back.

Small portions and overpriced. Service at the bar was terrible. $15 glass of wine was only 1/2 portion. I guess they want you to keep buying more.

Swordfish was ordered medium and cooked well done. Crudo Duo for $40 was basic tuna sashimi appetizer with sauce that was too sweet - total rip off.

Because everything you order including a basic beer ($9) beer, espresso ($9) and dessert ($11) is overpriced, the bill racks up in a big way. I would recommend any other seafood place first

Wanted to give it another chance after a trend of declining service. Wish I didn’t. This time Mohammed was our server and he did not have the experience, knowledge, nor the attention to detail to be working at a place like Oceanaire. Made what would have been a nice meal an extremely frustrating evening. He did NOTHING unless asked and then the proverbial light bulb went off when asked for things and then he realized he probably should have done these things on his own... like when you order three different types of oysters, as the server be able to identify them vs. just saying “they are all there and walk away”. Not providing tools for cracking a shells when ordering crab... I don’t even want to waste another minute complaining about him. My time is more valuable than that. Big thing is the service keeps getting worse to the point it doesn’t justify the rest of the experience.

For the actual price the portions are small, our server failed at doing his job. I waited 45 minutes for my drink and he checked on us once in the 2 hours we spent there. Maybe because we looked like a young couple but never judge a book by its cover, I am normally a 50% tipper but he lost out on that. Overall experience I will never go back
