A few days before, called and made reservation for 4 for the New Year's Eve, Dec. 31, 2016. I said I want a table away from the entrance and the restrooms. I was told "no problem." To make sure we would show up, I had to give my credit card number, and was warned a $100 charge if no-show. An... More

We split a seafood gumbo soup and a seafood salad on date night. Those two dishes plus a glass of sauvignon blanc each and the tab came to only $45.

Waiter clearly doesn't know, what he is doing. "Whipped" potato has a chanks of potato in it. John Dori fish overcooked and test like... More

Located in the upscale Galleria the service is top notch in this beautiful restaurant. Starting with the hostess stand where they kindly offered to check our shopping bags to the waiters who are attentive and friendly this restaurant makes you feel welcome and special. The food is outstanding and portions are large! The only thing we did not care for... More

I was staying in a nearby hotel and did not fancy long cab rides, my hotel told me about this place and they were right. the service is prompt, friendly and attentive, the cocktails are sharp, the place is busy but not manic, the menu is vast and the food well cooked. highly recommended.

They have a reverse Happy Hour from 9pm to close and it's a great deal. In particular, the shrimp diablo, which was fantastic. Bacon wrapped with cream cheese and jalapeños. You get 3 for $7 during happy hour, compared to 4 for $16 regularly. I came in late and got two orders and water. Obviously, not a big meal (or... More

My husband and I have eaten dinner at The Oceanaire twice in post month and both visits the food was wonderful & the service was excellent! Our first visit we went alone, but the second visit we brought the kids along with us... they all enjoyed their meal! Highly recommend if you are in the Galleria area :)

Came in on a Friday night, group of 5. Service was very slow even though the restaurant was pretty empty. The dishes are way overpriced for the quantity. $30 for 6 fried shrimp and a pile of fries? No thanks. I had the grilled octopus and 2 oysters-1 cape cod, and another one I can't remember. Oysters were ok, octopus... More

A wonderful place to spend an evening. Upmarket ambience with really knowledgeable staff. Asked for recommendations and were delighted with his selections. Free bread and fresh nibbles - celery, carrot, pickle, olives appeared quickly. Great wine, beer, spirits and cocktail menu. The desserts topped the meal. The atmosphere was one of precise, efficient service with attention to detail in all... More

Having experienced fresh tuna in Grand Cayman I can attest that the preparation and presentation of my tuna dish at Oceanaire was second to none. Couple that with ambience and excellent service and that makes for a wonderful evening. My wife had a filet...also excellent!
