We sat at the oyster bar thinking it would be quicker service...but we were very wrong! The food is great...when we were able to order it! We sat at the bar for about 10 minutes before they took our drink order...and another 10 minutes to bring us the beer...which was only about 5 feet away since we were at the bar! Bottom line the bar service was absolutely horrible!!! The food was delicious but a bit on the pricy side...$16.95 for ONE crab cake! Overall...good food but do not sit at the bar!!

I have never tasted better seafood anywhere, and we have been all over the world. Hands down, the best ever. We don't come here often because it's just too expensive for us, but when we want to treat ourselves, we make a trip over and go for it!
San Diego is really coming along with great places to eat.

Oh no, I can't believe it...why did they have to take something so great and ruin it...
Well folks, the home of the best crab cake has been sold. That's right, Landry's has purchased the Oceanaire chain - and food quality, portion size and staff happiness has dramatically decreased. I am sure the corporate guys and Landry's figured they could by the place and start cutting costs, reducing quality, and increase their profits. A sign of the times.
All of the fish portions have decreased by 2-4 ounces (including a 1.5 ounce reduction in the crab cake). The food quality has decreased and the staff is very unhappy.
If you still want to experience the best crab cake in the world (just a little smaller now), stop in this place before it is too late. I have decided that I probably wont go back. Oceanaire doesn't do it for me anymore...I have lost that lovin feeling.

This is my absolute favorite restaurant. My boyfriend and I went here for Valentine's Day. The restaurant had formulated a very special menu for the occasion. Each course left us speechless. Everything from the bread, salads, and soups to the fish, meats, and desserts was absolutely phenomenal. The meals are so unique and it's amazing how the chefs know that very different ingredients and spices (that no normal person would combine) somehow can come together in a tantalizing fashion. The ambiance was romantic and comfortable. The servers were polite and knowledgeable about each dish. I wish I was rich so I could eat here at least once per week.

I took my assistant to lunch today to the for her birthday. I had called ahead to make special plans to have flowers I had ordered and gifts placed on the table prior to our arrival. Everything was done very professionally and exactly as I had requested. The seafood was excellent and the presentation was very nice. Thank you for the excellent service. I will be back.
