San Diego Restaurants

The Oceanaire Seafood Room

Updated 05/16/2014

Fodor's Review

Engineered to recall an ocean liner from the 1940s, the decor at Oceanaire may be a bit contrived but the food—and the classic cocktails are spot on. Expect the freshest oysters and sashimi, and a carefully prepared menu of up to 25 daily "fresh catches," with specialties ranging from utterly convincing Maryland crab cakes and oysters Rockefeller to richly stuffed California sole, a luxurious one-pound pork chop, and irresistible hash brown potatoes. The menu might also

include the deliciously hot, spice-fired "angry" pink snapper. Service tends to be casual in San Diego, which makes the professional staff here all the more notable.

Went for an office dinner and was absolutely impressed by this place. It has a great atmosphere, melt in your mouth dishes, and great service. Our waiter carefully explained all of the dishes to us and was very attentive.
