Oceanaire Seafood Room - DC
As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire. See you soon.
I have often enjoyed a meal at Oceanaire over the past years and this prompted me to schedule a business dinner meeting in one of their private dining areas (18 people). I was not only disappointed with the service and preparation, but embarressed how the staff treated me and my business guests. The waitress was exceptionly rude and rushed, spoke harshly to our European guest. We were not allowed to order coffee or an after dinner drink. I was so appalled by the treatment that I contacted the management at Oceanaire and never received a reply. I will never patronize this restaurant again personally or on business.
We tried this restaurant out last time we went to DC on a congressman's recommendation. The prices were high and the ambience/atmosphere was very nice. Our waiter proceded to really raise our expectations on how fresh the fish was, how amazing the dishes were, etc.
The mussels, I have to admit, were excellent. Fresh, and in a delicious broth. Both of us ordered fish, salmon and grouper, and weren't as impressed. The fish may have been fresh, but the salmon was cooked a bit too much and the skin was left on and was difficult to scrape off. Anyway, for a $50/person meal (without wine...) you would do better at a different place unless you're looking for a nice atmosphere and want to impress a date on how much you'll drop on dinner.
Another fantastic dining experience in DC. The Oceanaire was recommended to me and it was so worth the visit.
I made reservations for lunch. Oceanaire is located directly across the street from the F street metro exit. The d�cor is spectacular � not sure the history on this place, but it looks very 30�s retro inside. Great round booths and sconce lighting, just very sharp.
My dad and I ordered the crabcake appetizer. I�d heard they were spectacular, so we both wanted to give them a try. While waiting on our appetizer, bread and a tray of crudit�s with a small dish of pickled fish was served. I was curious about the slices of fish, and tried it gingerly. Wow! What a flavor � tender and delectable.
The crabcakes did not disappoint. Without a doubt the best ever. And I�ve had loads of crabcakes I my time. They were not laden with breadcrumbs and other fillers, just chunks of sweet, beautiful crab mixed with spices and who knows what else. They are served with a mustard-mayonnaise sauce that is incredible as well.
For our entrees, dad ordered the halibut steak, broiled (incidentally, HUGE�he couldn�t finish it and he eats everything) and I ordered the lemon sole broiled. The sides are for sharing and I ordered the cream corn (which is nothing like the nasty, flavorless gak that comes out of a can), and on the recommendation of the friend who told me about The Oceanaire, ordered the hash browns a l�Oceanaire.
Both our entrees were amazing. Fish so fresh, flavors so luscious and appealing. The hashbrowns did not disappoint either. There was far too much food. The food was so scrumptious that neither of us wanted the meal to end!
Despite the fact I ate less than half my meal, I managed (after seeing it on the dessert menu) to make room from Cr�me Brulee. Cr�me Brulee is my absolute favorite dessert ever, and I haven�t had it in years. Theirs made me oh so happy! It was smooth, sweet, creamy � all the things an excellent cr�me brulee should be.
It was a pricey meal for lunch, not some place I�d go every week, but on special occasions, I will keep this on my list. Simply cannot say enough good things about The Oceanaire.
What a variety of fresh seafoods. Although I'm a snob about local foods and refuse to even try the crabcakes, the menu items I have tried were uniformly excellent. Again, a restaurant that puts a strain on the wallet when considered for everyday, it is excellent for a special occasion.
Can you believe I am telling you to order the creamed corn at a seafood place? Well, I am. Beside the amazing selection of fresh fish and seafood hand-written on a chalk board above the bar and the mind boggling choice of oyster appetizers, the side dishes at Oceanaire are equalmatch to the super-star entrees. You can't go wrong at Oceanaire - order any of the fish dishes they are all delicious. As far as sides--go with the hasbrowns and creamed corn, I guarantee you won't be disappointed! Sitting in the beautiful polished wood booths with a large shrimp cocktail and a martini, you'll feel as though you were swept back in time to the 1920's and be inspired to live up the roaring life with a plate full of snapper, tuna or crab. If you are a steak lover, there is beef on the menu, but seriously, if you aren't going to eat the fish or seafood -- go to a steak house...leave that table empy for me!
