Oceanaire Seafood Room - Dallas
Fish was overcooked
We have been to the Oceanaire several times - in both Dallasd and Phila. The food was quite good and well prepared. The service was good however they seem to be a bit understaffed or the waiters are not supporting each other adequately. Our server was very nice and knew the menu but as the restaurant filled up we were often left awaiting service (i.e. for wine to be poured as the bottle was kept chilled somewhere else, for our plates to be cleared, for dessert orders and then for the bill). I was not left with the impression it was our servers fault as she was busy all the time. All in all its a good choice but the service could improve.
Buena experiencia, la comida insuperable igual que la atención
Lunch menu was a little pricy. Ordered the mahi mahi with asparagus. Fish portion was very small, maybe 4 oz., and two asparagus spears with small serving of mashed potatoes. Bread served was fresh and warm. I was still hungry after eating meal. But what I had was good. Service was very good.
Awful experience. We brought another couple here hoping we would have as great of an experience as we did in Florida. When we arrived, the was no hostess. We waited several minutes before a very nice man who brings the water saw us and looked for the hostess. After sitting down, our server seemed annoyed from the moment we asked about the wines. Our food took forever to come out despite the place almost being empty. I suspected they had forgotten about our food. I was right. My salmon was cooked well instead of medium but it was barely warm when it was given to me. My friend's chicken was also overcooked but at least the chicken and salmon's dryness could be fixed with the sauce that came with it. Both the ribeye and filet mignon were so overcooked and very dry. Server never came to ask how everything came out. We had to let the man bringing water know. They took the steaks and said new ones would be brought. It took so long that two of us finished our meals and we were just sitting and waiting. I finally said we should call the waiter because I bet they forgot about the food. Again, I was right. The server came back with the steaks, and they were almost well done again. Sadly, the ribeye lacked seasoning. We proceeded to sit in silence. I think we all just wanted to leave. Waiter still had not come so we asked the water man if we could get our check. He was the only great employee at this place. Waiter finally comes and brings dessert menu. We inform him that we already asked for the check. Manager never came to check on us or apologize about the food. Completely ruined our evening. This is not the service or food I expect when dining at a nice restaurant. So disappointed.
Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and helped us navigate the beautiful menu that changes everyday and is printed new every morning. Our food was incredible. Only thing I’d have to say is that there’s so many good things to choose from it takes a while to actually decide what you want! Prices are fair, service is wonderful, food is delicious!
As always Oceanaire is a great experience with wonderful food and service. They consistently deliver quality. We had three young children and a large party and they accommodated us nicely. Our table was a little closer to the kitchen entrance than I would have preferred but it was not terribly distracting.
Great select of menu options and nothing we had disappointed. Great waiter who was personable and knew the menu well. We will be back soon.
Fantastic food with outstanding service. An awesome dining experience.
My father’s 87th Birthday celebration. Service was excellent. Food was phenomenal. They made the night very special for my Dad and our group
7th marriage anniversary
Our waiter Phillip knew everything about the menu. He gets to know you then directs you to a choice you'll love. Melanie, the manager, gave us the most warm welcome that relaxed our party into an enjoyable evening. The chef selections we're really worth trying. Everything was superb. The wine list was very good. We enjoyed our evening and are looking forward to visiting again soon.
The Oceanaire was fantastic! Great service, ambience and the food was amazing. Wait staff was very helpful and insightful about the menu and the various options you may have your dish prepared. I'll be defenitely dinning at the Oceanaire again!
The service and food were excellent. Our waiter Phillip was attentive at every step.
Only if Nate is working, got the wrong food. Couldn’t get a cup of coffee and they threw our leftovers Away
Great time but closed early. Online did not say it was closing early.
Fabulous food and wonderful service!
I ordered Dover Sole and have ordered it before in other restaurants. I ended up with a very large amount of bones still in my fish and the server didn’t really seem comfortable filleting the fish at our table. If you are going to serve something like that and charge what you do, you need to have someone that knows what they are doing. The service at the bar was fantastic and the raw bar was excellent. Dinner was good, but was disappointed with the service of the Dover Sole.
Food was amazing. Once we stated we were there for the couples special the server seemed to lose interest in our table and barely came by. Outside of the service, it was a good experience.
They had a really good promo going when we were there and it was a great value. Appetizer, entree, desert and a bottle of wine for $70.00 per couple. The crab cake was not hot and my shrimp in the scampi were overdosed so I didn't give it good marks for that reason. My companion had no complaints. I've been here many times and will go back.
Excellent meal except the dessert
Salad and fish were outstanding
I’ll skip the dessert for sure next time .
Birthday celebration was perfect! Nice touch with customized menu. Food and services was stellar. Atmosphere is perfect for adult conversation. Never let me down.
Excelente atención y servicio. La comida deliciosa
Great restaurant in a hotel at the Galleria Mall. It is pricey but the quality of the food was good. I would go back another time.
Great food and service; lovely people
Went for $1 oysters.— they were incredibly small.... but they were $1
We had a great evening. This should be everyone’s go to restaurant for a special event or just for great seafood.
We were first seated next to a large group that was very loud. They were obviously part of a meeting group. We asked to be moved and they obliged us. The restaurant was busy but not completely full. We received our meal One and a half hours after we ordered. We did not yet the experience we paid for.
Great staff food excellent atmosphere like in the movies
If they can afford it, sure. It is pricey and, while the service was good, it's odd to say that I have had better cooked fish elsewhere.
Hostess was incredibly rude. Waiter lacked any sense of enthusiasm. Several of the menu items were already sold out including several of the fish selections as well as several of the deserts. I’ve eaten at several of the Oceanaire restaurants around the country. My experiences in DC are always positive however I doubt I will return to the Dallas location after this experience.
Always an excellent dining experience. We love this place.
I think waiter could have been a bit more friendlier
The dishes that were advertised we were told by our server did not exist--yes we offered and were turned down to accompany him to see the menu just outside the door. He was arrogant, rude and condescending. He called the manager at our request and she was not any better but finally called out the chef who agreed with us. Needless to say we experienced very poor service afterwards. We will definitely not be returning.
A great Mother's Day at Oceanaire. The halibut, scallops, and lobster all excellent. And best service (Andrew) in all my trips there.
My wife had the chicken fried lobster...only in Texas...but it was great. I had the Scampi which is one of the best dishes I have ever had in any restaurant. Service was excellent. Loved the black Manhattan. Pricey but worth it.
Delicious and enjoyable as always
Birthday dinner. Food was everything I thought it would be, amazing! They even put the birthday boy’s name at the top of the menu, thoughtful detail.
The waiter seamed to be on a rush..
We got asked 3 times if we were done with our appetizers, even with food on them..
not close to my prior experience at lunch, way better experience
