Ocean Blvd is our favorite restaurant. The kitchen staff never disappoints. Such talent. The food is so fresh and what is decided to pair with each main course is exceptional. We enjoy the atmosphere and the entire staff always aims to please. Well done Oblvd!

Fantastic meal!! We had a group of nine that ordered off menu and specials ...wow, all were great...swordfish, rack lamb, duck, soup. If you want a nice night out (also live music on patio) this is place to go.

Thoroughly enjoyed our dinner, especially the catch of the day...fresh swordfish! Crab cake and scallops are dependably good. Very nice wine list that is reasonably priced and yes they can do ANY kind of martini you like! Enjoyable selection of easy listening music and ambiance!
