Great atmosphere. .fantastic bar and service by Tim our waiter. Front desk and valet did great job too...only drawback was planning by chef and kitchen. Ran out early of 3 main fish entress and main dessert..
Another great experience at Oceanaire!
Best fresh seafood in Indianapolis. Our server, Tim, was excellent. He kept the meal timed perfectly and made some great recommendations on our dinner selections. One of our favorite places for a great night out!

Always a great meal at Oceanaire. The scallops with crab dynamite were fantastic.
Will return for a special occasion!
This was our first time at the Oceanaire Seafood Room in Indianapolis. I love the atmosphere of being special, but also being very relaxed. Our waiter took his time explaining the menu and the dishes he thought we might be interested in. We were seated promptly and services started immediately. The waiter recommended a drink, that was delicious, based solely on my statement of other drinks I like. I ordered Oysters off of the Oyster Bar and they were very delicious. We were monitored in an appropriate manner without being hovered over or feeling ignored. This was one of the best meals I have ever had.
A little pricey
The food is good but not great. Not sure it is worth the extra $$$.
Allen was our server...he was worse than terrible. We were there early 5:30pm before a show and only a party of 4. If we weren't nice people we would not have left a tip at all. And we spend over $500!

Excellent food and service. Attention to detail is incredible! Our favorite place when we want to feel pampered and indulged.
Our dinner Friday evening at Oceanaire was a delightful return to one of our favorite restaurants in downtown Indianapolis. Both of the fish dishes we had were magically prepared so that they had a crisp outside and a wonderful moist tender inside. The service provided by our waiter was attentive and timely. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.

Dining with a difference
Loved the menu with its variety of well- and interestingly prepared foods. Not your usual run of the mill entrees. Excellent oyster bar and a variety of wines to go with everything, even some wines that I don't usually find on a wine list. Our serves was helpful and knowledgeable.
Night Out on Indy
The Oceanaire restaurants are excellent, regardless of the city. The dinners are a bit pricey, but the outstanding service and quality of the food justify the cost. Dinner was delicious!
Outstanding service, disappointing food
Our server was exceptional! He was knowledgeable, attentive, and helpful. The food, however, left us a little bit disappointed. The oysters were fantastic but my fish was a little overcooked and dry. My wife's crab cakes were also under-whelming.

It was our first time at Oceanaire. We decided to try 2 apps the calamari, lump crab cakes, and shrimp cocktail. All three were excellent and sharing them allowed us to try them all. The ahi tuna was absolutely amazing. We had it lightly seared and raw in the center. It was so delicious it brought tears to my eyes. For dessert we shared the creme brûlée I've had better but it was still nice. Overall our visit to Oceanaire was amazing and I can't wait to return.
Awesome food and service
The food and service here is unbelievable. The food is great tasting and presented well. The wine list is very inclusive and reasonable priced.

Very nice as always. Waiter was knowledgable about the menu items and the wine list. Perfect ambiance and atmosphere to prepare for the Manilow concert.
Good, but not amazing
The service and ambiance were fabulous, but the food was just OK. For the price of the items on the menu, I expected the food to be phenomenal. Paid $10 for valet parking and the car was parked right were we left it when we handed the valet our keys. So that seemed a bit over the top as well.

As always, food was terrific. Service, though, was not up to usual standards. No bread or relish offered, appetizers brought out at different times, entrees right on the heals of appetizers, overall very rushed. The place was not crowded but it seemed like the server was wanting us to move along. I did not think she was the standard of experienced professional that you usually find at Oceanaire.

The food was exceptional as always but the service from Andre was above and beyond. I highly recommend Oceanaire and Andre every chance I get
We really enjoyed the restaurant. A bit pricy, but good. The waiter was great in helping us with a great selection of oysters from the oyster bar. It was a nice find for my fiancee and I during our weekend getaway in Indy.

Leah and staff were very attentive, food was excellent.
The service was the best part of this meal. Our server was very knowledgeable & practically recited the entire menu. The entire staff brought our food at the same time so no one had to wait for their main entree while others had theirs. There were 5 in our party & 2 ordered the mixed grill which they enjoyed. I ordered the John Dory & found it to be too salty & was surprised the skin was still on the fish when it was served (the skin was not crispy so it was very unappetizing &had to sit on the side of my plate while I ate). 1 member of our party had the salmon simply prepared & enjoyed it very much. The sides were all excellent. Maybe it was just my fish selection that was not the best choice. Good wine list as well. Did not live up to the high standards that I expected but hopefully everyone else will have a great experience.

The sole, scallops and mixed seafood grill were all simply prepared and outstanding. Only bizarre item was the shrimp and grits where the shrimp was blackened and over peppered, totally out of keeping with traditional low country cuisine

As always, the seafood selections were numerous, fresh and well prepared, and our server was extremely accommodating and professional. The only negative was the hostess's first attempt to seat two people, both in professional attire, immediately next to a family with infants and small children, when the restaurant had plenty of seating elsewhere. Those seating guests should be more perceptive at a restaurant of this caliber.
Great Service and food
LOVE Sarah, our server. She was incredibly knowledgable about her food; this server LOVES her work and is good. She had no fear of making recommendations and telling you why she recommended things. We had oysters (I preferred east coast while she and my dining companions liked the west coast), calamari, a chopped salad, crabcakes and I had a fish that I can't remember the name of now. Sarah recommended it and it was delicious. The desserts ARE HUGE. You do not want a dessert unless you have an absolute minimum of one other person to share it with. Everything we had was wonderful and fresh.
Great food! The crab cake was awesome!

Favorite seafood restaurant in Indianapolis
When visiting Indianapolis, my wife and I always visit Oceanaire Seafood Room. We greatly enjoy their selections of seafood. We have always experience outstanding service, and when we had reservations were always seated promptly. Thank you.
We request Julian each time we go due to his fantastic customer service. He remembers us and what we like so his recommendations are flawless.

Surprisingly good for a upscale chain restaurant. Many many good menu choices. Creative sauces.
I surprised my husband for his birthday by taking him here. We were treated very respectfully and the food was divine. My husband kept saying every bite of his food was "exquisite". If you love seafood this place is a must!!
I am always reluctant to visit "chain" restaurants, and perhaps this has colored my perception. First, this place is pricey, which causes my expectations to rise. Everything was good, not great. Service was uneven. We waited an inordinate amount of time for drinks. Then two of four drinks were brought to the table. Unacceptable. , Our primary waiter was MIA much of the evening. Expensive side dishes simply were not worth the money. It was very loud, and the tables were close together, resulting in several inadvertent bumps by staff. In a word, I was disappointed.
Amazing service, decent food
Amazing service, great bread, excellent shrimp, great chowder, edible fish tacos... appetizers and desserts exceeded quality of entrees..
Food delicious. Service impeccable. Never fails to exceed expectations.
This restaurant was very nice. You were treated like royalty from the moment you entered. The food was amazing and the tuna cooked to perfection, but my only negative thought is too small of portions. Will go back on special occasions when I'm not wanting a big meal.
