Another great NOLA restaurant.... the 5/23/2012

Another great NOLA restaurant.... the oysters were out of this world!! Friendly staff, very helpful with recommendations of what was good to eat/ drink... the only negative aspect was that the recommended gratuity is added on as standard onto the bill, eventhough there were only two of us eating together. We have no objection to paying a gratuity, but we... more

hot and delicious 5/16/2012

Our food was quick hot and delicious! Our server,I don't remember her name"" was awesome. She always had a big smile and was super helpful. more

outstanding 5/11/2012

The food was outstanding and new to my wife and I. The waitress Jamie was extremely friendly and encouraged us to try adding fried crayfish to our Mardi gras pasta which made it even more amazing. She even acted as an impromptu tour guide and directed us to less touristy places that felt more authentic. The crab cakes were also to die for. I will definitely be coming back here. 5 stars. If you go be sure to ask for Jamie. more

Amazing 4/24/2012

I came here while taking a trip across america from California to New Jersey. Amazingly, we found this place open late at night at 12 am. I was so hungry, but wasn't sure what to get. We ordered the triple platter dish that had Gumbo, etouffee, and something else. more

I would highly recommend! 4/16/2012

My brother in law told us about this restaurant and it is in a great location in the French Quarter. I really liked it because it had an upscale feel with a casual dress code. I got the shrimp fettucine which had an incredible cream sauce. My husband had the barbeque shrimp (southern style not the usual BBQ shrimp) and he enjoyed it. I would highly recommend! more

A hidden Gem in the French Quarter 5/22/2010

I happend to stumble upon this place on a hot, humid afternoon last week on my first trip to NOLA. It was the busy, work week lunch hour. I was greeted by friendly faces at the door, promptly seated and immediately served a huge ice cold glass of water. The young waitress was friendly and informative. The decor was cute & cozy and the A/C nice and cool. Pros: Wonderful food, Fast & Friendly Service Cons: They are not in Texas! more

Awful Service which wasn't much better than the food 4/15/2010

Myself and 12 friends went to Oceana last Friday night. Obviously we were a big group, so I'm happy to give some leeway when it comes to the speed of service. BUT, I made reservations well in advance and even called the day of to confirm. Pros: Location, Decor Cons: Service, Service, Service, Food more

this restaurant deserves a 10 star rating 12/17/2009

I've never been to New Orleans before. I've never had crab cakes before. I LOVED THEM BOTH!! Pros: crab cakes and service Cons: none, zero, zilch, nada more

great food 3/2/2009

hardcoremofo. get over it. did you look at the rest of bourbon street? it is filthy. im sure the entire quarter is filled with rodents. even before katrina. if you don't want to see them, then don't go to the swamp. stay where stuff like that never happens. or at least where you just think it doesn't happen. i have eaten there twice and the red fish was great both times. everything looked sanitary to me. at least compared to the rest of bourbon street and im a clean freak. more

One of the Best Restaurants in the Bourbon Street Area 5/2/2008

This is my favorite restaurant in NOLA. We stumbled upon it one day while looking for a place to eat and ""something"" lured me into this place. Food is delicious. Their BBQ Shrimp is spicy and buttery. Even their red beans 'n' rice is really good. The Mardi Gras Seafood Pasta was delicious; however, the price was not marked on the Specials board; when I saw the charge of $28 on the bill, I was not happy. (So do inquire about the prices of their specials.) Their bread pudding with bourbon sauce is one of the best you'll find in NOLA. It is HEAVEN on earth, so please leave room for it. The atmosphere is roomy and casual and the servers are attentive. Even the manager helps serve the tables as needed. Pros: The best cuisine NOLA has to offer Cons: They don't post prices on their specials board more

Best Seafood this side of Mars 4/21/2008

On a trip to NOLA with the Mission of Mercy group that held the medical/dental gathering at the zoo after Katrina, we were looking for a good place to eat. Well there are so many to choose from, but we asked some police that were on the streets in the French Quarter and they sent us to Oceana. What a treat. The staff made us feel like family. Whatever we thought of even though it was not on the menu they would prepare. The BarBQ Shrimp was the star of the night. Even though we are from Va., we have tried to duplicate this recipe, but it doesn't quite make it! We knew we were in the right place when on a weeknight, while some places were not opened back up, there were a lot of people there and State Troopers, everyone made us feel welcome. We were even able to tell some of the employees and guest of the free clinic at the zoo. It was good because some of their Dr's had not returned and they needed medical help. THANKS NOLA, THANKS OCEANA.............we shall return! Pros: Food done right, wonderful people, service great Cons: Not close enough to my house more

Best Cajun and Creole in new orleans 7/3/2007

My friend and I go down to New Orleans twice a year. For the last three years we have tried all the famous restaurants in the city, until we were lucky to visit Oceana Grill. Best BBQ shrimp the Louisiana and best crab cakes on earth !!!!!!!!!!!!! Pros: on the corner of Bourbon and conti Cons: Crab cakes are a must more

Best meal in New Orleans 6/11/2007

Recommended by a man on Bourbon Street as THE place to eat, my friend and I were not disappointed. The appetizers were well prepared and delicious. My friend had a seafood pasta dish that he really enjoyed and I had the Tuna stuffed with crabmeat and topped with crawfish sauce and ohhhhhhhhh my gawd was it wonderful!!! The Chef visited our table while we were there and made sure everything was great, he was very personable and made you feel at home.The service was very good considering the constant turn, I have been in the business for alot of years and haven't seen very many servers that could have done as well and still never seemed stressed when they came to the table.All in all, during our visit we had eaten at much more expensive and well known restaurants but none were as good as Oceana. If you go to New Orleans and want a truly memorable meal go here and enjoy!!!! Pros: awesome food Cons: its 606.3 miles from my house, please open one closer more

great food, great service, great value 4/9/2007

My dad and I were looking to eat near Bourbon street and saw this little place half a block down on Conti. We liked the restaurant atmosphere, our waiter was great and the food was fabulous. We ate at Acme oyster house earlier that day and were kind of disappointed with their new orleans sampler. Here we got to taste what a really great jambalaya should taste like! The entrees we ordered, especially the mahi mahi , but also ahi tuna were fabulous. On top of that the portions were humongous. You can't go wrong with this place. Pros: great fresh food, service, nice athmosphere Cons: huge portions, was barely able to eat a third more
