Fodor's Review

Entering this restaurant is like walking into the dressy stateroom of a modern luxury ocean liner. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out north and west, and the arrestingly designed raw bar backed with Mediterranean-hue ceramics serves stunningly fresh choices—you would expect gorgeous oysters at a restaurant called Oceana, and you get them. Chef Ben Pollinger has the skill and confidence to serve some of the most vivid and delicious seafood in town. A contemporary appetizer section includes items like marinated cucumber with apple and toasted spices. Grilled whole fish like halibut, swordfish, and crispy wild striped bass, are served with a perfect rotating roster of sauces that includes a classic romesco and a grilled pineapple salsa.
