Went there for a business dinner for the second time.
Got mahi mahi, which was "of the second freshness", and not particularly well prepared otherwise, and came on top of a pile of sugared-up caramelized onions. Also lobster bisque, which tasted as if it came out of a can.
Nobody else at the table thought much of their food, and the service was lousy.
Last time I went, I got the "fisherman's platter", figuring they couldn't screw up fried seafood: I was wrong. The breading was thick and greasy, and the whole thing was an unappetizing, indigestible pile of hideousness.
For a $30 a plate restaurant, I would expect at least some imagination in menu preparation, and at least very good execution. Oceanaire provides neither. This was like something from 30 years ago, in Buffalo, where I grew up.
How does anyone like this place? The only think I can see that it has going for it is that it is right on the edge of the financial district. Other than that, I give it maybe 2 out of 10 stars (I reserve 1 out of 10 for places that give me food poisoning).
