Cuisine Seafood

Between $50 and $75

Smack dab in the midst of cavernous midtown, Oceana is always a gratifying spot for indulging in spectacular seafood. Located on the ground floor of the McGraw-Hill building, the grand dining room is soothing yet dramatic with its spacious layout, plentiful windows dressed with sheers and aqua-blue drapery, dark woodwork, navy banquettes, and seasonal flowers. The private, glass-enclosed room and chef's table by the kitchen are attractive options for the power crowds seeking a more exclusive experience. A lounge area and raw bar display of pristine shellfish chilling on ice welcomes diners and underscores the restaurant's seriousness of purpose. The superbly fresh items never falter in finding just the right global accent, as in carnaroli risotto infused with shrimp stock, studded with diced shrimp and pumpkin, and enlivened with slivered bits of sage. The grouper "chraime" is a plump block of steamed fish plated with a spicy, North African-inspired tomato sauce, diced eggplant, and blistered shisito peppers. Desserts offer a refreshing finale, as in a bar of delectable olive oil-enriched cheesecake paired with a quenelle of tarragon sorbet and pale pink watermelon granité.

      Pros

      Wide variety of oysters. Very nicely served with tasty sauce. Chocolate mousse was delicious and cappuccino was very nice as well. Compliment pumpkin soup shot.

      Cons

      The food was very greasy. Not exactly what i expected from a Michelin-star restaraunt. Scallops were also too salty, lobster over-cooked(rubbery), meat was just usual. Portions too big to enjoy. Even though there were quite a lot of waiters serving us, they seemed to be distracted. We had to move our heads in circles trying to order additional things because the waiter was running around the table while listening to us. So, i guess, the main question is, does that sound like a Michelin star?

      Pros

      Ce qu'il y a dans l'assiette, irréprochable.

      Cons

      Le sommelier, qui s'est sifflé un verre de notre demi bouteille de Mercurey pour le goûter puis qui a enlevé la bouteille non vide en fin de repas. Sur notre demande, il a prétendu l'avoir renversé dans le saut à glace et nous a apporté deux verres de vin insipide pour se faire pardonner !
