My first part of my review is about the bar area in the main part of the restaurant. The service was amazing and the drinks were just as good, highly recommend their drinks from their menu and their truffle fries. The second part is about a dinner event that I attended on the 8th floor of the building, this is... More

This is an outstanding seafood restaurant. The food, the service, the atmosphere, all spot on. I had the Seared Maine Driver Scallops - awesome! My husband had the Ahi Tuna and it was best that I have ever tasted. We also tried the jumbo shrimp and jumbo lump crab cake appetizers. Very good as well. Large wine list. It was... More

I believe this is the best seafood in the city albeit the price is steep. I hosted a group from out of town and everybody loved their food from simple grilled fish to a shellfish platter. Service was excellent. Landlubbers can find steaks prepared same as Morton's, a sister restaurant. I had the ahi tuna which was superb. Crab cakes... More

Had a team meeting here and the we were seated immediately, but we had to wait for close to 10 min before our waiter decided he need to pay attention to us. The food was good. All the sea food selection were great. The t bone halibut, the mixed grill, the king salmon. Over all good food, just the service... More

The location is within walking distance of several downtown hotels and if not, parking / valet parking is pretty easy. Nice digs - very clean including the restrooms. Service was very good, not excellent this particular night but very good. The food was awesome. Everything, from start to finish. It is expensive of course but worth it. Our only nit... More

Why only 2nd best? Because the best seafood is fresh seafood you eat on the boat immediately after you catch it yourself. Other than that, this is the place to go! Warning - bring a fat wallet. It's not cheap, but I have to say I think it's worth it. Big portions, delicious taste, and unbeatable service. Everyone knows it's... More

Traveling to Indianapolis for business and everyone was in the mood for seafood. We were able to make a reservation fairly easily and got right in. Atmosphere is very nice, and service was outstanding! Our server reviewed the entire menu with us and made helpful suggestions. The couple next to us was celebrating the wife's 70 birthday and they shared... More

The service was marginal. To the credit of the manager, once I pointed out the problem it was corrected and she offered a comp dessert. Food was good, presentation was nice and the atmosphere was too. I have been in comparably priced seafood restaurants in other non-coastal cities where the overall experience was much better.

Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.
