"We have been here 5 times so far. The food tastes great and they have excellent cocktails. The Evanstonian is our favorite. Only negative is the portions are rather small. So if you are really hungry, you might not get filled up. This is the only reason I did not give it 5 stars."

"We discovered this place as it was one of the Chicago Chef's Week dining locations and neither of us had heard of or been to it so we thought we'd give it a shot (plus it had a very good rating online to begin with). As an added bonus we're both using the "MyFitnessPal" app to eat healthy and the app has a number of restaurant menus listed in it to manage what you eat and Oceanique is one of them. Makes it easy to pick and choose what you want and still stay within your healthy eating plan. :)
The place is small but cozy and nicely setup. Not overly ornate but a mixture of a little 'country' with the barn door style doors and elegance with the linen table cloths that are ironed right an/on the table (that was a little strange to see during dining service but kinda cool at the same time).
The menu selection is small but I like a small menu where the food is outstanding vs. a massive number of choices where the food quality suffers as a result. Oceanique did not disappoint in the quality. We went with the Chef's Week menu and since there were two of us we got to sample twice the number of items on the menu.
Everything was exquisitely done! The amuse bouche and at the start was a very nice touch as was the sorbet pallet cleanser between courses. The entrees (we both got fish - the Skate and the Trout) and they were tender and perfectly prepared.
The dinner was really wonderful and we both left there planning to go back and try more! I know that some people put in their reviews that the prices are high - and yes, it's on the higher end of the spectrum. However, as the saying goes - you get what you pay for and in this case, while we got a special price for the special menu, we'd have gladly paid the full price and will not be bothered by that when we return for more."

"Sitting area is too small next to or facing walls. Food was fine but not according to the price and prestige of the place. Service was efficient. Ambiance was plain at best. At this price range you expect a more holistic gourmet experience and Oceanique doesn't meet that level."

"This restaurant provides exceptionally delicious food and excellent service. Beginning with the bread and butter, through appetizers, to the entrees, and ending with desserts, every order delighted. I was here with 3 others (with family visiting from out-of-state) and each of us enjoyed what we had selected. I had the bouillabaisse and it did not disappoint."

It is a fabulous place to feel like a VIP, and enjoy the best food artistically presented.
You can even have a conversation with whoever you are dining with without shouting.

"Old: The decor. Please update. Especially when few diners are present, you really get a '70's vibe, esp in the back dining room and since the clientele oftens skews "mature", it can feel like a dining area in a rest home. New: some great twists and re-imaginings on classic techniques and ingredients (mainly seafood. Lobster makes several welcomed appearances!). Borrowed: the prices on drinks. Oceanique is neither a Las Vegas club nor Apiary. This is not the place where I want to spend $20+ on cocktails. Or even $16 on a martini. Multiple ingredients or adding some spices does not a craft cocktail make. Something blue: The wait and kitchen staffs, as they hopefully wait for some diners to serve. Past few times we've dined there (over a couple of years), there have been no more than 4 other parties in the dining room and/or bar area. People SHOULD be eating here and not just once a year because the food is lovely to look at and delicious to taste and engaging to think about. There are some great techniques that accentuate all the ingredients in the great salads and seafood dishes as well as the desserts. The amuse bouche "du jour" always increases anticipation of what's to come. Even the degustation cost is steep without a voucher and look out for the charge on the wine pairings."

"We did the 7 course tasting. First course with lobster and mozzarella was not very good. None of the components of the dish went well together. The rest of the courses were very tasty, but the portions were extremely small for the price of the dinner. The scallop course was one small scallop. The ravioli course was a single small ravioli. To spend $110 on seven courses and have a few of the courses literally be one, maybe two bites was disappointing. I've eaten at many of the fine dining restaurants around chicago and have done the tasting menus, and this one for the amount of food and the price charged was a disappointed."

"The 5 course tasting menu was outstanding. Portion size, available options, and taste were all winners."

"We enjoy Oceanique because it is simple and elegant without being fussy and because the food is uniformly well-prepared. My husband and I both love fish. On this particular evening both his trout and my swordfish were beautifully prepared accentuating the flavors and texture of each. I also ordered corn chowder with lobster and was pleasantly surprised by the little bit of heat in the herb laced broth set apart by the sweet corn kernels. Lobster chunks made it that much more delightful. Both of us really liked the passion fruit sorbet as a palate cleanser between appetizer and entree. Desserts were good. The 5 course tasting menu allows diners a choice of appetizer and entree and the kitchen is willing to accommodate allergies and diet restrictions. Vegetarian and non-fish options are available. Another plus - before we were out the door, the valet had already been dispatched to get our car."

"As always, OCEANIQUE does not disappoint! It is such a wonderful place - the food is as delicious as it is beautiful, the staff are all so polite and considerate, the ambiance is comfortable and relaxed. We had a 5-course tasting menu and it was spectacular. My ocean trout entree was cooked perfectly! OCEANIQUE is such a gem and we are lucky to have it in Evanston. It is a perfect place for any occasion."

"We LOVE Oceanique, and will continue to dine there. Love Chef Grozs, and normally love the atmosphere. This time not thrilled with our server. FORGOT a serious food allergy that we discussed prior to our ordering. Then at the end, he shoved the portable credit card machine in my face and rather assertively pointed out suggested gratuity amounts. I suddenly felt like I was at Chili's. This will not keep us away, but I hope the management addresses the sensitivity and delicacy that is often presumed to be the atmosphere at a high end restaurant."
