Seasons At The Ocean House Ratings and Reviews
Beautiful restaurant with delicious food!
My husband and I came here to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious and the service was impeccable, would definitely go again!
My wife and I had a wonderful meal and experience at Ocean House last week. The food that was prepared by chef Jacob and his staff was delicious and beautifully presented. Each portion of the dish had a special flavor which added to the experience of the entire dish. Our server Stephanie was knowledgeable and explained each dish as it was presented. When she was not available other staff members were there to add to the experience. Definitely a special place to be.

Gorgeous setting. Upscale atmosphere. Great food. Friendly staff -- especially David and Chelsea in the Bar.
Incredible food, service and scenic view. Wait staff teamed together for an incredible experience for our 32 wedding anniversary. The cocktails to start the night were perfectly mixed. We had the 3-course dinner and each serving was presented in spectacular fashion. The steak my wife had and the lamb that I ordered were some of the best tasting, and tender cuts we've experienced anywhere. Thank you for making our night out very special.
Magnificent, in every way!
Everything about the Ocean House is amazing: location, architecture, history, dining experience!

Everything was lovely! The service was outstanding, and there was a great selection on the menu. The gingerbread martini was great!
View awesome and many delectable food choices
Our third annual brunch visit for our family for a birthday celebration. Ocean view spectacular and great food choices for all to enjoy. Fitzroy our waiter surprised the birthday guest with a dessert treat with birthday candle. We were able to relax and enjoy the whole brunch experience. Not rushed at all! Thank you. Can't wait to come back.
Excellent Food and Service
Everything about this visit was enjoyable. The valet service was unexpected and professional. The maitre d' escorted my party to our table despite that we were early and explained all of the stations and the menu in great detail. The wait staff were friendly, attentive, and prompt, and all of this before even getting to the food. Oysters were prepared and chilled well, the crepes were perfect, and the entrees varied and delicious. Overall this was an excellent experience and I will happily come back again.
Great for Brunch

Christmas Day, awful experience, over priced, worst service (from the bartenders to the servers) so slow!! Will never go back
Outstanding in every way.
Ocean House is one of the most elegant settings for a truly enjoyable meal. The views are phenomenal, the service outstanding and the food exceptional. This is our favorite place for Christmas Eve lunch. It is elegant yet comfortable and the staff are all very friendly and helpful.
Ocean House Wonderful
Always a wonderful experience. Expensive, but worth it for the ambiance. Never a bad meal.
Ocean House, a Special Place
I've enjoyed several celebration dinners, including a surprise dinner for my birthday, at Seasons, have visited the bar once or twice, had a glass of wine on the Terrace, and most recently, lunch at Seasons. Every visit felt like a privilege; the food is memorable, and the staff made my companions and me feel like honored guests. The original Ocean House was a special place, and the new one is, too. And it's awesome that it's open year-round!
For $62 a person for the breakfast buffe ...
For $62 a person for the breakfast buffet, it was definitely not worth it. Very few buffet stations and for your main breakfast course, you can only order one plate of the menu. Quite the ripoff.
The Ocean House is according to T+L the number one rated resort in the country. The property is an outstanding reconstruction of the historic hotel and the dining areas have sweeping views of Block Island Sound. But the food is more outstanding, from salads to crepes, to the raw bar, to the entrees and desserts. Have a crepe for a starter, and watch it being made before your eyes, and so quickly. I chose the turkey carbonara this time. Outstanding was the prosciutto hash that my wife chose, with chunks of potato and slices of the dried ham. Wow. My turkey enchiladas were merely excellent. A fruit crepe instead of prepared desserts is exceptional. The prepared desserts are enchanting. But take one macaroon, real Parisian style macaroons. Sure it's a bit expensive, but so worth it. And plan to skip dinner like we did, and eat until not quite full.
As good as touted
We enjoyed Thanksgiving at the Ocean House. We opted for the buffet and it was great from every perspective; variety, quality, flavor, atmosphere and service.
Thank you for the amazing birthday lunch, and for the birthday card and gift of honey. The Ocean House is my go to for celebrating special occasions. Just perfect.

We were celebrating my wife's birthday and I mentioned that when I booked. Everybody was very nice and made a point in wishing her a Happy Birthday. The food and service were outstanding and the wine list was impressive. It was a quiet day so we had a table with a great view of the ocean. We will certainly be back again. Thank you to everyone who made our visit feel so special.
The Ocean House is an exceptional spot for lunch. The Seasons dining room overlooks the beach with a gorgeous view of the water and surrounding properties. The hot lobster roll and the clam chowder are not to be missed. You will pay a premium but the value (including free valet parking - they do not accept tips) is exceptional.
I was very disappointed in the Ocean House this time. I have been there and everything was beyond expectations. Not this time. Crepes were doughy. The food on the buffet would continuely run out so you had to wait to have it replenished. The staff would tell you that you had to wait and come back. My husband went back 3 time before the seafood bar was replenished. The coffee had gounds in it. My husband requested the bloody mary bar and was not given any chocie, it was just made for him and the waitress did not ask him his choice of vodka or what he wanted in it. When asked the waitress about a certain item, she told us that they couldn't do it, only to find out for ourselves that they could. Ocean House is know to try to accommdate the customer's requests. The dessert bar was empty when we went up to get dessert. It appeared they were trying to clean up early even though they had about 20 minutes until the end of the brunch time. The waitress was not very attentive and we had to try to find her when we needed something. We drove 2 hours only to be disappointed. The manager, Lee, did come to our table, and we told him how we felt, but that didn't seem to improve the service and the buffet was still out of food.
Exquisite setting, food and service!
Our visit for Brunch was the most outstanding dining experience we have ever had!
There were empty tables but the maître d took forever to seat us. It took too long before a waiter came over to offer us water or give us a menu. The soup was great but my lobster roll was a bit tiny. My wife's veggie Panini was missing the veggies. All in all it was not in keeping with our prior visits to Season's.

Made reservations with request for window view and was seated in inner dining room next to large bachelorette party...it happens but was disappointing. Food was just ok this visit. Reservation was at 12:30 and buffet options were not replenished well. I wanted charcuterie but everytime I went up the one chef doing this and crepes was busy and we didnt want to wait as we were hovering over a table in that area. They should have one at each for level of service and cost. The last reservation we made for my birthday in December was made by mistake on wrong day by reservationist and they wouldn't honor the mistake. There is a lack of customer service with management. It is just average now, the service and standards from years past is now lacking.

Perfect view! I love the view, however, guest of the restaurants are not allowed to go down to the beach. Nevertheless, the view from the top is still lovely and wonderful. For the food and service, it was good. I will definitely come back again!
Overall fantastic experience
We had a wonderful celebration for my husband's birthday: Champagne Brunch at Seasons at The Ocean House was my gift to him. Food was fantastic - lots of choices, and our server Krystal was just so pleasant and attentive. Unbelievable views of the ocean - couldn't be happier!
Table location matters
I wish I had specified that we wanted a table by a window on the outermost enclosed porch. We had an inbound table next to interior windows edging the main dining space. Kind of dreary, considering the restaurant location on the shore.
Well prepared interesting great food. Nice portion sizes. Excellent, well timed service by competently, attentive trained staff. Very comfortable to hear. Would definitely come back again.

I chose this as it was roughly halfway between a friend, whom we were meeting, & us. It was near perfection!!! Also, many added touches. The drink list was incredibly imoressive. It is an experience that I will never, ever, ever forget!!!
Seasons at ocean house
The valet staff was not very welcoming and disorganized . The valet on the walkie was not helpful and rude to us. The waitstaff was slow and forgot our drinks. The food was good. The atmosphere was beautiful
A true gem
This was our second visit in a month for the Sunday Jazz Brunch. It was so perfect the first time that we had to share our experience with our adult children and their spouses . Perfect in every way, weather, food, service, ambiance . We all agreed that we will return again and again. Do Rhode Islanders realize what a " hidden gem "they have in their back yard?
We went for the jazz brunch. It's a three man jazz band that plays in the foyer. It's hard to hear them from inside, so after brunch we got a drink and sat in the comfortable couches to listen to the band. It was a good selection of food in the buffet along with a la carte selections. Beauty surrounds the Ocean House no matter where you are. Overall a fantastic experience.
Served glasses of our champagne to adjoining table. We mentioned this to our waitress and notified manager. Our waitress said that the champagne will be replaced with the same champagne. This was not true. We were given a different bottle of champagne which was not as liked as what we ordered. When bottle of champagne was brought to our table, it was not shown - just opened and served - not good protocol for any restaurant - especially this one.
My wife and I drove over two hours to experience Oceans House and have lunch. Our lunch in dining room had beautiful views and while the Clam Chowder was very light on clams the lobster rolls were excellent. After we finished eating we tried to sit on the half empty patio and enjoy cocktails. We were refused seating because the "patio is reserved for dining guests only". Even after explaining we had just finished dining inside we were again refused. Apparently, if you eat at the patio you may then continue to sit there and enjoy beverages, but if you eat inside and spend more money you may not. Stupid rules that really soured our visit. Not likely to return.
Outstanding once again
This is the best restaurant in New England. While we live in Boston, we come here to celebrate our anniversary every year. It is head and shoulders above the top restaurants in Boston, both in food and service (and there are many excellent ones that we frequent). The attention to detail is unbelievable--I've never seen a slice of jalapeño sliced so thinly and it gave just the right level of heat. Their wine list is unmatched. Take a trip down to Watch Hill! You won't be disappointed.
Great anniversary destination
Ocean House helped make our anniversary a memorable.
Brunch with a View
Amazing selection of food with wonderful service. The restaurant was busy but not loud and our waiter was very attentive. The view of the water from our seats was beautiful! We will definitely visit again!
Modest yet extraordinary
Even with the spectacular setting, required dress code, and expensive, creative menu, the spot-on service manages to be both personal and unpretentious. Overall, a rare treat.
No better brunch exists in the world.
I live in Westerly so getting here is easy. I have had brunch here 5 times and have always had wonderful food. It can get busy, so the service can vary at times. I have had breakfast and brunch all over the world...and there is no comparison to this. Throw in the beautiful view and you have a very unique experience...
If you Have to Ask, You Can't Afford It.
There's a saying about yachts; if you have to ask how much it costs to run one, you can't afford to own one. Same with the Ocean House. Stunning , ocean front location, hundreds of millions of dollars in renovations, top quality staff and food raw materials--OF COURSE, it can be blindingly expensive. However, go to lunch rather than dinner, pick prudently from the wine list and menu, and you can end up with a bill that is less than what you would spend for the same thing at a decent but boring restaurant in Providence. but here's the delightful kicker. Dress appropriately (not necessarily expensively), show that you know food and drink, be polite and ask intelligent questions, and YOU WILL BE TREATED LIKE A MILLIONAIRE. I went with a group of 6 middle-class foodies, and we were treated better than the table full of obnoxious (but ostentatiously affluent) hedge fund barons seated and squealing nearby. There IS some justice in the world. In the conventional reviewing sense, what can you say? Beautifully trained staff, unostentatious but impeccable service, excellent (but somewhat conventional) menu, overwhelming wine list, stunning view, relaxed atmosphere, and you are confronted with the Paradox of Rhode Island. World class surroundings and natural views, and only 45 miles north is the squalid cesspool of Rhode Island politics. Talk about your love-hate relationship---.
