best of the best! – I have always loved the Oceanaire!! I've done everything from happy hour, to surprise and going away parties, private dining, pre-show dining, and every experience has been better then the last! The servers, hosts, bartenders, and all other workers here are very helpful and professional. The food is unbelievable....I could write a 3 page essay on how fantastic the seafood is, but I'll spare you :) They have a great wine list too!
Get here ASAP, good for romantic evenings, business dinners, and any and all of the above!!!
Best Seafood in Denver – This is the highest quality seafood in Denver. Specials, atmosphere and service are great. Apps are delightful and choices are varied.
Best Seafood – My daughter suggested I try this restaurant. I was sceptical because I'm not a huge seafood fan but WOW! As soon as we walked in the door it was an amazing experience until the moment we walked out. The decor of a 30's cruiseliner was breathtaking. I took a risk and tried the Mahi Mahi which was cooked to perfection. We also got the hashbrown side dish that complimented it very well. Our server was very knowledgable on all the wines and paired a great wine with my fish. The cheesecake dessert was also to die for. I will definetly be returning to have another wonderful experience.
Great restaurant – Seafood experts of Denver!! My husband and I went to the Oceanaire to celebrate our anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better place. The Chef really knows how to bring out the flavors in every dish...it's incredible. The atmosphere is very romantic and elegant and the staff truly cares about your well-being. Experience it for yourself and spread the word...The Oceanaire is unexplainable!
Excellent – I've been in to eat there many times and love it. I decided to host an office party at the Oceanaire for 50 people and I couldn't have picked a better place to do it. Michelle the event coordinater was very attentive to all of our needs. The food, wine, and cocktails were above expectations. All I can say is the Oceanaire is SPECTACULAR!
INCREDIBLE!!! – This is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to. The food is amazing and well worth every penny. The staff treats you as if you were a regular. There is really nothing I can say that's bad about this restaurant...just try it for yourself and you'll see!
THE GM AT THIS RESTAURANT IS CLASSLESS!!!!!! – So, my friends and I decided to go to the Oceanaire for Restaurant Week. We made reservations and, the day before our dinner, we asked if we could add another person. The next day, we were told by the GM that we didn't have any reservation--we lost our reservation for 2 because we asked for 3. I couldn't believe it. When I called him back, he said we must have called the wrong number and they were pranking us. Are you kidding? We called the wrong number and they answered "The Oceanaire" and proceed to "prank" us by telling us we had no reservation? When I told him that was ludicris, he said he was taking the reservation away from us altogether! I complained about that and he said he was wrong. To make it up to us, he'd give us a $100 gift certificate to the restaurant. On our way there, he called me back and said that we had mistakenly made our reservation at the wrong time--accused us of trying to scam him and said that he was rescinding his offer of the $100 certificate.
There was no scam here. We mistakenly made the reservation for the wrong date. It was an honest mistake. He told me TWICE that we weren't the type of people they wanted at Oceanaire!!! He was rude, condescending and unprofessional. The busboy at a Denny's has more class than Robert Bonner, the GM for The Oceanaire in Denver. Do not bother with this restaurant. Rober Bonner belongs behind a dishwasher at an Olive Garden, not at the helm of a fine dining restaurant.
Possibly the best seafood in Denver – OK, I realize it's a chain. But, Oceanaire really is a step back in time to what a high quality restaurant should be. The service is impeccable, the selection is remarkable and the wine list is adventuresome and not overpriced. Under present economic conditions, it's a good idea to make this a special occasion destination but when you do, it is well worth the money. The menu lists the freshest seafood and our server ably answered all of our questions. Also, the bar is a great place for a nightcap or some after-work appetizers and cocktails. The civility of everyone from the busboy to the management is enough incentive for me to return!
Careful... – After getting a new job, my family, friends, and I decided to go out for dinner to celebrate. Unfortunately what seemed to be great service and selection turned out to be the kind of night for which none of us hopes. I'll spare you the details, but let's just say I was in an ugly situation for about 2 days and not right for about a week. Freshness is definitely something to be desired, so be very, very careful...
A Definite Must Go! – Having tasted fine seafood around the world from Alaska, to the eastern seaboard of the US, Asia, and the Mediterranean, the thought of enjoying fresh seafood in the Rocky Mountains is not something that is a generally accepted concept. However, Oceanaire does a wonderful job with the quality and variety of the seafood as well as its presentation. Couple this with impeccable service and that makes for a very enjoyable dining experience.
I have been there twice and about to go again this evening. Everything that I have tried there from the raw oysters, to crab legs, to tuna, to halibut, to the scallops, etc. has been outstanding. The cream corn is a must have as a side. The only downside I can think of with Oceanaire is the price in general. However, good seafood is typically more expensive than other fairs and at Oceanaire, you get what you pay for. So when comparing to places like Cape Cod, the price is comparable.
Robert, the Assistant GM and Sommelier, is very service-oriented and this mindset is echoed by the staff. Ask to meet him when you are there and you will feel special as his attentive manner makes you feel almost at home.
