【閉店】Ocean at Main
Just about every course got screwed up. Love the place. But waiter had a bad night. Chef/owner came out to apologize which was nice. The problems didn't matter much as had long dinner with friend, but the service was pretty bad and the check was reduced appropriately voluntarily. So handled it well. Just had a bad night. NBD
It is closed!!!!!
Awesome evening with great service and the food was completely off the the charts outstanding. We will be back very soon.
So enjoyed our evening, beautiful restaurant and had an amazing meal and amazing service -
Ocean at Main is great. This was our last visit before they close for good. We will miss it.
Food is excellent but additional work needed on service. Called to let the restaurant know we would a little late for our reservation. We were put on hold 3 separate times, each time for more than 4 min before I hung up and called back. Once we arrived, hostesses were more interested in chatting with each other than greeting customers. Our server was very nice and relatively attentive compared to other visits.
We have always had an excellent experience at this restaurant and are very sad to hear that it is closing
Sadly OAM is slipping beneath the waves. You’ll be sorely missed. See you in another life...and location. Well
Outstanding food, great service. The oxtail risotto, lobster ravioli, short rib cigars, short rib entree and brussel sprouts were amazing!
Ocean at Main was a recommended to me by a chef I know very well that heard of the place. Our observation is, the service we received needs a lot of improvement. It's our opinion, that a fine dining or higher level type restaurant should have the type of service that reflects the quality and the price of the food. Everyone from the hostess to the server was a bit impersonal or indifferent, not too knowledgeable about the menu, and a highly unorganized. We came in for our wedding anniversary which I placed in the notes for my reservation. Not one mention of it was made by the hostess or server. The server finally asked if we were there to celebrate something when asking if we wanted to see the dessert menu.
Regarding the FOH staff being very unorganized, two times, a food runner/server came to our table for the wrong reasons. One was to place utensils on our table but after we had already eaten our entrees. He picked them up off the table and said, oh, wrong table. He then placed the same utensils on the table next to us that had a party of 6 seated. Since we had already eaten our entrees & had been using the table, I believe he should have gotten new utensils. The 2nd time was, another food runner coming with a cup of hot water asking us if anyone from our table ordered it. He walked away confused since we told him we hadn't. Two times our water glasses went empty for a long time & we had to ask for refills. One time, our glasses were empty and the food runner filled the water glasses for the party of 6 next to us, looked at our empty glasses and didn't offer to refill them or to at least come back.
We let our server know this was our first time & he offered no suggestions on the menu & only gave us info but after we asked for it. We had to remind him to bring a side of dressing for our cold hot wings. Later, we told him our steaks were overcooked, & no comment. The brioche bun for the OAM burger was dry & fell apart. FOH needs some help
Nino was the perfect server. Food was wonderful as usual! Will definitely be back again & again!
Exceptional experience. Beautiful restaurant, excellent service and outstanding food!
Loved it! Decor, food and service all tops!
The food was awful! The Lobster ravioli came out way under cooked. They did allow us to exchange for another item. Which were burgers-Not a burger place; The short ribs were tough & no flavor. The appetizers we ordered were just bland & too much cream.
Everyone was super disappointed & it was very pricey with zero value. Our server was very nice & apologetic.
Like the place. Like the waitstaff--very attentive and friendly but not over the top. Menu has a lot of interesting choices and good selection of appetizers. We had a very good salad and the artichoke dip appetizers and they were terrific. Pretty good wine list but allow you to brink your wine. One of the corkage charges was waived.
Couldn’t have been a better dining experience
Great spot. Food was incredible.
Went with my husband for date night. We were both looking forward to the oyster appetizer and were very disappointed,as they were tasteless and smothered in shaved ice on top which made them even more tasteless. Endive salad was a high point. I had the lobster ravioli which was very good and filling my husband had the rib eye which was thin and chewy. Dessert for me was a cranberry tart and ice cream, the ice cream was good the tart was almost a brick in hardness, my husband had the apple crisp which is very much enjoyed. I will not go back as the prices are very very high and the food quality is very very low. Service was good not excellent
Wait staff friendly & professional. Food outstanding. It felt very comfortable not rushed.
Loved the oxtail rizzotto, lobster ravioli, and warm apple crisp. Service was excellent. Will definitely come back.
Great neighborhood restaurant with exemplary cuisine! Chef and owner Craig Strong is certainly to be commended for bringing this extraordinary restaurant to life! Just steps from Main Beach, great location for a stroll before or after dinner. Hoping brunch starts up this summer so we can enjoy the excellent menu items. If you haven't stopped here yet, give it a try you won't be disappointed!!
Always fabulous and I am a discerning foodie!
Overall we had a good time and enjoyed the food, but I was surprised at the slow service. I think they were having kitchen issues. It took 20 mins to get our mixed drinks and 25 mins to get our appetizers, despite only five tables seated while we were there.
Fabulous dining experience and will return to enjoy it again! Chef Strong is passionate about his craft and it shows! Very pleasurable and delicious.
Staff are very very good. We had a six week old infant with us and the staff was enormously helpful. The atmosphere is fabulous and the food is superb.
Best cuisine in Laguna!
Everyone in our party of 8 enjoyed their meal. I had the vegetarian entree and it was unique and tasty (could have stood to be a bit warmer). The special was a gnocchi with shaved truffles and shrimp - they literally shaved as much white truffles as each guest desired. Fun to watch.
The atmosphere, service and food are all 5-Star
Chef Craig absolutely has fun with his menu and delivers an elevated menu. Bravo!
Best burgers in Laguna Beach! Paired with great glass Pinot Noir. And started with Chefs famous “cigars”. :)
It was a nice dinner- a little pricey for what it was but nice. Would go again probably for lunch.
Excellent service. Delicious octopus appetizer and wonderful lobster ravioli. Beautiful space, but feels like a lunch/bistro. The ambiance would be much improved by simply lowering the lighting level to comfortable fine dining levels.
It was awesome..Great food and atmosphere...amazing Chef!
Will definitely be back!
This was our first time visiting Ocean at Main. We had a great experience from when were immediately greeted with a smile by the hostess to our phenomenal server. But most importantly, the food was amazing. They are known for the lobster ravioli and I know why, it was excellent. We also loved the ambiance, overall it was as great time.
We will definitely go back again.
We luv Ocean at Main and Craig Strong never fails to deliver. Our group of 6 shared the delicious margarita pizza and the sooo rich artichoke dip and moved on to a selection of crisp, fresh salads. The ravioli with lobster is always a standout and the striped seabass was delicious. The only misfire for us was sweet 'n' sour brussels -- too sweet. We will be back soon.
Lovely cozy atmosphere , delicious food, wonderful service.
Awesome as usual !! Chef and staff were great. Amazing service from Tawnie. My fav place in Laguna!
Consistently the best OC has to offer. Not to be missed by rational adults who eat.
Always great food, creative yet not over done, great staff, great ambience right in the heart of downtown!
Phenomenal experience all around ask always.
One of the best brunch restaurants in Laguna Beach. We love visiting and dining at Ocean At Main!
