THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED The Oceanaire Seafood Room Restaurant Review: THIS ESTABLISHMENT IS CLOSED Combining Seattle's obsession for fresh fish with San Francisco-style elegance, the sophisticated Art Deco interior will make you want to get gussied up and order a martini. The huge dining room could have been on the Titanic with its cozy booths, chandeliers and blonde wood walls. The Oceanaire's extensive menu features an impressive list of what's "fresh tonight," and offers both classic preparations as well as more inventive dishes. As you await your order, a generous amuse-gueule composed of marinated herring, black olives, celery and carrot sticks with two dips is promptly brought to the table with a half-loaf of bread---almost a meal in itself. Oceanaire specialties might include saké-marinated black cod, sesame seared Hawaiian ono, and oven-roasted Alaskan halibut. The featured fisherman's platter is a highbrow version of fish ‘n’ chips---cod, shrimp, scallops and oysters coated in a delicate batter and accompanied by a mound of svelte salt and vinegar fries. Service is attentive without being pretentious. The Oceanaire boasts an expansive---and expensive---mostly American wine list.
