Our new location boasts beautiful views of the Prince’s Island Park and its pathways and is the perfect setting for every dining occasion. At Oceana we are proud to offer Calgary’s largest selection of fresh fish and we serve only the best AAA Sterling Silver Beef. During the summer enjoy the evening sun on our beautiful patio away from traffic and the city hustle.

Enjoy any one of our three contemporary and comfortable dining rooms that look onto the pathway of Prince’s Island Park or relax by any one of our two fireplaces in cozy club chairs, or share and intimate evening in our clamshell booths. Oceana is the perfect spot for every occasion.

The server was very pushy. Meals expensive. Worst part was the cheesecake ordered by a child in our party came with mould. The 7 year old child noticed the mould on her cheesecake after eating half. The server initially denied that was what it was then reluctantly acknowledged it was indeed mould and blamed the supplier who “gives them the cake frozen.” Desserts not made in house and the food not checked before being served to guests. While they deducted the desert and coffee from the bill (only half of our party had desert and 2/7 had coffee) the child’s meal was not taken off. We all were left to wonder what else was amiss with the food we just ate.

Would not recommend this place to anyone and will not be back.

The flavours are quite different than how other places make scallop, shrimp, and baked oysters, but they're yummy! Definitely worth a try!

We went in on a Saturday night for a family dinner. The food was great and the service was wonderful. The noise level was such that you could actually talk and hear one another from across the table. Portion sizes were good and I would consider it good value

Very nice overall. Sort of out of the way in reference to location. Very slow...Many tables were empty which was very surprising. Food was good but we both had the Bouillabaisse which we felt was too watery and did not have enough rice.

Dined here with 2 work colleagues and it was excellent! From the fresh baked bread with olive tapenade spread, to the fried seafood platter, seasonal salmon and pasta Capri, to the chocolate mousse and baklava desserts, every dish was fresh, well seasoned and delicious! Waiter gave great suggestions including a terrific wine at a great price! They even split our checks with pleasure. This was our first visit to Calgary and Oceana, and if we ever come back we will definitely visit again!

Wasn't overly satisfied with dining here, I have higher standards for how I like my seafood experience to be. The prawns were great, but I had lobster as well and it didn't reach my expectations.

I love Oceana for the view and privacy of tables. I hadn’t had my sister in Calgary for 9 years and this was my choice of restaurant to celebrate. Our waitress Vincenza was amazing and sooo friendly as well as helpful. Thank you for another great experience.

Very good lunch, with haddock fish and chips. Probably should have avoided the 1/2 L of wine, as that added a significant amount to the bill, but it was a nice Argentinian Pinot Noir. Nice atmosphere, very good food, but it is a bit pricey.

From the refreshing and simple, blended green Greek Salad and Kale Salad, succulent and tender Grilled Spanish Octopus appetizer to the Main sumptuous Pan Fried Jumbo Prawns, tasty Lobster & Prawn Linguini and delicious Pasta Capri, zesty Sea Bass and Arctic Char, sweet, fresh Pickerel. And of course, the sweet toothed diners won't leave without their yummy desserts. Overall..it was a great experience, fun evening and good food and wine!

We went for Mother's Day and considering the number of people, the service was very good. Food was mixed. The New England clam chowder was very good. The crab cakes were passable but not the best. The brochette was decent but again lacked the wow factor. The halibut was nicely done. The problem was that the menu said it was to come with bruschetta. That consisted of a bunch of small tomato halves. If the 2 microscopic green leaves that cam with it had been increased dramatically it would have made the dish excellent as they held some tasty spices but no such luck. The deep fried seafood was average. All and all the food was well done but boring.

Octopus was excellent- succulent and not rubbery. Scallops and shrimp also very tasty. Then had the special - good value. Halibut was good but eagerly waiting for the fresh halibut to come in soon. Always a satisfying meal with good service

I typically go for the Manitoba Pickerel as it is perfect every time and when I feel like indulging I will order the fish and chips, either Haddock or Halibut, they are both done to perfection. There are a lot more delicious choices on the menu but you can never go wrong with the fish. Service is excellent, the place is perfect for business lunches but have been there for group and evening events and they are always a great experience too. Cheers

Absolutely stellar food - the only problem was they try to fill you up on bread before the main course arrives!

Other than that, a very quiet ambiance and very friendly staff make this a perfect early supper place for anyone walking in riverside Calgary
