My husband and I are always on the lookout for good places to eat in the theater district since we love the theater and hate tourist traps. Having had a pretty good business lunch there awhile ago I decided to try Oceana for dinner and we were very pleasantly surprised at how good it is now. They've managed to score... More

Oceana is a terrific seafood restaurant in mid-town Manhattan, convenient to the theatre district. The food is excellent and the service is impeccable. Several at our table had the monk fish pastrami style, served with pickled cabbage and rye noodles, capturing the essence of New York deli with the meatiness of monk fish.

Ate here for lunch. Staff was very polite and friendly. However felt like we had a different server with every transaction. The food was good - midtown, business lunch, fare. Prices are very expensive. For a business lunch or dinner it is fine. But if you are on vacation in NYC or a resident you can eat in a lot... More

It is hard to imagine a better meal or better service. This is a seafood establishment and they do it well. The wine list is wide ranging and the food was cooked perfectly. Service was excellent. The decor is fairly modern looking and the tables are close together, but that's New York. This is the best meal we have had... More

I absolutely loved the food and the service. Staff was friendly. I walked in for an early dinner and had very nice 3 course seafood dinner with red wine. Place is very elegant so you can dress up or just go semi casual. Price is not too high and they also offer half Portion for some courses which is really... More

Great raw menu- and the restaurant has a fantastic vibe. I went with a colleague. I enjoyed a glass of wine and he had a great microbrewery. They have a wonderful wine selection.

The physical restaurant is nicely appointed and spacious. The environment is relaxing. The bar area was hopping, but not overwhelming. The staff was gracious, on the mark, and timely. The menu and wine list very nicely constructed. We were totally pleased with our meal. (swordfish, raw appetizers, squash salad) The jewel was the pumpkin cheese cake. (and we do not... More

No complaints about this restaurant. A waiter even drew us a map when we asked for some directions to a local theater. But, sometimes the service was a bit spotty and we found ourselves looking around for someone a couple of times.

Visited this week with family, its just off 6th Avenue, and the the restaurant looks great. Service was exemplary throughout, and speed of service was excellent. Starters include chilled lobster (excellent) and large portions of calamari with a wide selection of raw seafood as well. Of the mains, any of the lobster meals are well cooked and fresh tasting- the... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
