Oceanaire: "Upscale '40s vibe" The Oceanaire Tip by acemj

The Oceanaire, San Diego: 4 reviews and 2 photos


When I first walked into Oceanaire, I felt like putting on a suit and tie and listening to Cab Calloway. It has that 1930s, snap your fingers, smoke a cigarette feel, with all the waiters wearing sharp white suits and plenty of smooth, dark wooden booths and leather seats. The bathrooms are white tile and white towel affairs and the bar is long and crowded.

Favorite Dish: The place is known for seafood, which they fly in fresh everyday and I can attest that the oysters were great. I also tried a salad that was pretty mediocre and we all split some appetizers that were unevenly good.
