My husband and I had supper at the Oceanic with another couple. The food, the view and the service were excellent. We had a delightful time together in a very nice place. I would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will go back.

A young lady waitress Sara and her boss Ashley were both friendly but still lacking experience and professionalism. But guess what, that alone wasn't enough to serve the purpose of being in the restaurant....which is to eat and enjoy. Food was absolutely below average and...More

You asked "Do you take reservations on a Friday night in the summer?" I don't work there, I am only a customer. However, each time I have been at the Oceanic they have accepted reservations.
