Terrible experience. Went there this summer to celebrate my birthday. For the money it's a big rip off. The waiter took our appetizers off our table before we even ate them! The bread was hard as a rock! Maybe it was old, but you couldn't even eat it or you'd break your teeth off! My boyfriend ordered lobster, there were no sides served with it and it taste like rubber! Very small potion for a very large price. Good thing he wasn't too hungry or he would of starved! Never ever will go back! All glamorous and high priced with food that taste unedible!! Just a big put on! Food is terrible! Rip off!

OCEANAIRE? JUST SAY NO!

Poor service - expensive - food was messed up
by SR3429 at Citysearch
Had lunch on Dec. 22 with large group. Waiter ignored us. Food was messed up - not right. Had a ketchup bottle explode all over a couple of people in the group which was hilarious but waiter was not so sorry about. Had to ask for the waiter multiple times and bring things to his attention such as refilling drinks, food was wrong and ordered coffee and was brought cup and cream but no coffee. Perhaps he was just having a bad day but for the price, it should have been so much better. Waiter did NOT adjust the bill for the all the problems. My opinion is that I will not be back. If I were to get a gift certificate, it would get sold on Ebay. On a scale of 0 to 5, I rate this place as a zero. However the bathrooms are really nice.
Pros: Bathroom
Cons: The list goes on - stay away12/23/09!

Great seafood, incredible service

One of the bell persons at our hotel put us on to Oceanaire. It was so fantastic that we went back with five additional guests a second night. Those guests who love oysters raved about the selection and the quality. Their 8oz glasses of wine for a little more than the standard 4oz price was a delight. And, oh, the desserts! Over our two visits we shared the dreamsicle, the brownie, the strawberry shortcake and the stciky toffee pudding--all were delicious. Finally, the waiter, Michael of Chicago,makes the whole experience one of the most wonderful dining experiences I've ever had. Our guests the second time actually applauded him at the end of the evening.

Amazing

The crab cake appetizer is all crab and had me licking the plate. Delicious! I then had the chocolate mousse at a Frasier's Gourmet Foods cooking class hosted by the Oceanaire chef, and it was just as mouth watering. I can't wait to go to the Oceanaire Seafood Room again so I can order just these two dishes. I'll be set!

Oceanaire - Never a Bad Experience

I have just read some negative reviews about Oceanaire and wanted to write my own. I have eaten there on several occasions and NEVER had a bad experience. I typically get the mashed potatoes, asparagus and crab cakes and ALWAYS enjoy it! I have never had a bad waiter either and the ambiance is fabulous, great drinks and everyone is always nice and friendly.

If I get something I do not enjoy I just let them know and they fix it. This is my advice when spending a lot of money (or not a lot of money). TELL THEM. Don't come on here and complain b/c you didn't like it. Just simply let them know and give them the opportunity to fix your (expensive) meal.

I truly enjoy the atmosphere and Oceanaire is my very favorite restuarant in all of Indianapolis. Always great!

hmm i dont know

well this is an awesome place to dine at as far as interior values go.......but anything other than that is just average. i definatly expected more from an upscale restaurant.! my husband and i finally decided to break down and go to this damn joint! i wish i would spent my money elsewhere. wait staff was so so. they were quick to get you going, but went down hill after order was put in. definatly didnt leave a good tip that night!!! then our food was horrible, i had crab stuffed sole. which was freakin horrible. i wanted to spew, let me tell you, it literally tasted like hot cat breath!!! nasty, my stomach turns just thinking of it. :P
my husband had a better experience thankfully. he ordered filet mignon. and it was right on!! i must say who ever cooked that last saturday night, they are very impressive on their cooking capabilities!!!!!!!! they should probably take over the other section also. haha anyways...we finished up with some nasty crappy desert also known as ""the apple crisp"". it is mainly a runny oatmealy porrage atop bland caramel apples. literally you could find better for a buck fifty at the fair! oh well.....so that was our story...hope everyone else has a better experience. GOOD LUCK
