Came here for a midweek dinner with some colleagues, and it did not disappoint! I had the shrimp cocktail appetizer. The shrimp were plump and fresh, and the cocktail sauce was flavorful. For my entree, I had broiled Bali Barramundi. Never heard of this before, but I was feeling adventurous. I topped it was the jumbo lump crab oscar. Once again, the seafood was fresh. The staff was extremely attentive. When I got up to freshen up in the powder room, they came and cleaned the very few crumbs that were on the table and re-folded my napkin for me. Dessert was the Crème Brûlée, and I enjoyed it as well. The server suggested the Dr. Loosen Blue Plate Riesling, and it was divine. And to top things off--We asked the hostess to call a cab for us, and she got us black car service instead. Granted, it was a few more dollars more. But it was like the perfect end to a great evening. All in all, I had a wonderful experience and will certainly be back.
I've been to Captain D's that where nicer and FRIENDLER then this location. Which is not too surprizing scent there own by the same company. Sevice here was a joke and RUDE to a point. Gresse on everthing even the food.
Came here for dinner with my husband. We were seated promptly, and then....nothing. Nobody came to greet us, take our order..nothing. So we got up and left. I've been a restaurant manager for 15 years and this is not the way to run a business.
Boy, this place sucked out loud. My husband ordered the cobb salad. Yech. It was really a chopped salad with all the ingredients of a cobb salad in piles. It included cold sliced potato?!?! When my husband got home he broke out in hives. Not fresh shrimp....frozen like the stuff you buy in bags. Yech. I had a salad duet. The Shrimp Louis was just shrimp swimming in some kind of mayo. The other salad was a piece of salmon (nicely done) with lettuce under it also swimming in some sort of bacon dressing. We've always heard this place was supposed to be great. Hmmmm...Wondering when that was. What we had was really bad. No reason to go back.
On 9/21/2011 my office attend a dinner program at the atlanta location, we frequently go to the Oceanaire. But yesterday as we were wating for our second course an uninvited dinner guess happend to join us! A mouse scurried across the floor and made several apperances! We alerted the manager, and he and the wait staff "tried" to corner it and catch it, but to no avail! What astonished me, was that manager was not sympathetic, he did not apologize either! He just stated 'oh, thats the same mouse from outside" and that makes it ok? also the wait staff was very slow in getting food to our table, service as a whole was terrible! The rep. that sponsered that dinner was so upset and kept apolizing to us, and it was not her fault! I reccommend that staff at Oceanaire take better care of their patrons, and respond more quickly when there is and issue, such as uninvited guest!
I was so excited to see that this restaurant was on the Midtown Restaurant Week. I had always wanted to try it. I should have kept wanting to try it. This was some of the worse food I ever tasted. First of all they served you kids size portion (I guess they thought $35.00 wasn't enough for a real meal). I had a crab cake which was salty but I ate because I was hungry. My friend had clam chowder that was so salty he could not eat it. Next came the entrees. I had shrimp and grits. Shrimp was tough were it was overcooked and the grits did not have any taste to them. My friend had fish which was so tough from being overcooked that he had to use a knife like he was cutting a steak. Next came the dessert. I do have to give them props on the dessert that's why I gave them one star. The key lime pie was great and so was the service. I left a good tip for the server because it was not his fault that the food was so bad. I can't believe that this is supposed to be a 5 star restaurant. . Save your money and go somewhere else for seafood..
Oceanaire is the on the top of my list... The food is always Great!! The staff very professional and the price is worth every cent...... This is the perfect setting and place for any private or special gathering...... I will recommend to anyone who is interested in CLASS A restuarant.
I dined here while in Atlanta and the lobster stuffed with cajun stuffing (which was recommended by our server and not on the menu) was prepared to perfection. The restaurant is elegant and the server was great. The cost for 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and drinks was just under $200. Pricey but definately worth it
I go here on average once a month. Without a doubt the best seafood in Atlanta. Far exceeds Atlanta Fish Market in Buckhead. The seafood is fresh and flown in daily. Large selection of fish, crab and lobster dishes. The steak selections are good as well, but you should go here for the seafood. It's a chain, but does not have a chain feel.\r \r The wait staff is extremely helpful with the daily line up. The menu changes daily depending on the availability of fresh seafood. They will do just about any preparation you want and bend over backwards to make sure you are happy.\r \r The side dishes are large and should be shared. Wine selections are extensive and they pour generous servings.\r \r The atmosphere is elegant but I have been there in nice jeans and a nice shirt and felt comfortable. It?s not cheap, but you get what you pay for.
I have seen some of the other reviews and I completely disagree with anyone who says the seafood is not good.
