We have been to Oceanaire several times although not in the last 2-3 years. It has not changed. The layout is good and the large waitstaff is well trained. We had a light dinner and the food was very good, including the crab cakes. While the dover sole was an attractive option, it was also listed for $69. We passed... More

We had a large party of work partners. Wow, had the Carolina swordfish and it did not disappoint. Also had some great appetizers along with a salad. The company made the meal more enjoyable but had i been eating alone it would have been outstanding!!

There are not many restaurants we have been to that are on our list of the best, but this one made the list easily. The restaurant may not be much to look at from the outside but the inside is different. The service was among the best we have experienced. The service was prompt, The selection of food was very...

During our visit we were very impressed with the service, quality of food and overall ambiance of this restaurant. Given that this is a Landry's, Inc. restaurant venue, the Washington DC staff does a wonderful job. Four in our party and none were disappointed in food offerings. Wait staff are informed, personable and attentive. Support staff anticipated our needs and... More

Great menu on the list, but taste little disappointing. Full restaurant, really lot to do for the staff, service doing its best, but ... taste could be better. Oysters good, but not excellent, main dish served rather cold - prawns looking great, but only warm. The dessert - sorbet - sorry but big mistake. Surely overpaid the evening.

The Chef's have done a great job here! The Simply prepared Scallops were delicious. Pan seared to perfection. The crab cakes were very very good. $115 for 2 with no alcohol. Call ahead for reservations.

They have a salad here, maybe called Crab Diane, that is as enormous as it is wonderful. Generous portions of crab/egg/lettuce/tomato ... so yum. The seafood towers are a fun indulgence. I had the best Char of my life here a few years ago. I love this place for top of the line seafood.

I ate here on a week night for a work-related dinner, where the menu and wine selection were predetermined by the hosts. The appetizers, side vegetables and dessert were served family-style and we had several choices for the main. The server gave elaborate and enthusiastic reviews of all the items. I went with the "Best of DC" crab cakes which... More
