THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS The Oceanaire Seafood Room Restaurant Review

: Located in the Hyatt downtown, this place is a classy, sassy version of a l940s seafood room. Swank hardly covers it, starting with the sweet voice of Ella Fitzgerald ushering you in to wait for a table amongst the rich and powerful of the city. While you're being seen, you can get the freshest and best seafood in the city. Sit at the oyster bar and pick your beauties from artfully arranged ice-bins, or order a sampler at your table. You also can choose among the featured fish-of-the-day, whether it be a Columbia River Chinook salmon or Costa Rican mahi mahi. Then, decide how to have it, simply broiled or grilled with a little olive oil and lemon. Side dishes are monstrous and meant to be shared. Wines are appropriately heavy on whites, while still offering a nice range of reds. With the addition of the Captain's List featuring bottles like Opus, you'll have to watch the expense account. Or opt for a martini weighing in at a hefty five ounces. The waitstaff is knowledgeable and attentive without being stuffy.
