Seasons At The Ocean House Ratings and Reviews
The table that we sat at was in a terrible spot. My chair was hit numerous times (too many to count) by staff, and other patrons. I mentioned it to on of the servers half way thru our visit and his comment was "Next time you make a reservation you should request a specific table to be sure you don't get that one". We moved the table 5 times back and I finally gave up and my husband switched seats with me... My recommendation is remove that table to allow for a better traffic path... I was not a happy person when I left... Perhaps I should have insisted on a different table but the restaurant was very busy.
I can't believe how terrible this place was. The views are gorgeous if you are lucky enough to get one of the maybe 10 tables in the front room. That's the only positive thing I can mention. I still don't know if we had a waiter. A couple of people randomly came by to take our order and bring us drinks/food. The food was ok. I had a mediocre salad I could have made at home and a tiny piece of halibut that was decent. The terrible part is that those two things took close to TWO hours to get!! It was ridiculous. Once our order was in no one cared to check in again. Since we were staying at the hotel, I actually got up and left before my birthday cake came out. Best part?? When we got our bill the next day, we noticed the waiter (whoever that was) gave themselves 20% gratuity!! Incredible. I have no idea why this place claims to have 5 stars. For food or for the hotel. It was a huge let down. Don't bother.
Late lunch on Mother's Day. A bit underwhelmed given the possibilities- unrivaled view and beautiful atmosphere. Limited menu did not help. Good, if young, staff. Seems like the kitchen is in the throes of an identity crisis. Nevertheless, a must visit.
We will return - just with realistic expectations
The service and food was wonderful. The only issue was that since this was a price fixe meal the tip was included in the bill. We didn't understand that when the bill came and added 20% to the meal portion as well as the wine and liquor. We realized this was the case when we returned home. Since the service was so great we decided not to make it an issue.
Mother's Day splurge. Came here for a Mother's Day splurge. Ocean house was lovely and exquisite. The only option was the tasting menu and my 7 year old daughter was able to order a hot dog from the regular lunch menu. That being said, we were still charged the full amount for her tasting menu. I just don't think that's right. Even though we'd planned for the three of us to have the tasting menu (meaning we anticipated the expense) it still seems wrong to have been charged that much for a hot dog and fries. My advice is to leave the children home when visiting Ocean House, unless they are gourmet friendly.
We were genuinely greeted by ALL the staff. Our server was congenial and engaging. The food was phenomenal for our 5th Anniversary dinner, the Spring Onion soup reminded my husband of his grandmothers French cooking. Unforgettable! Each meal timed perfectly and presented with great care. There was just enough pause in between meals to engage in conversation and enjoy the view, before dessert was elegantly placed in front of us. A special place to spend a lovely Oceanside evening. It is semi formal dining experience, so wear comfortable appropriate clothing and ignore your clothing to enjoy the experience.
I have been to the Ocean House brunch many times through the years & feel it is the best brunch overall in the world. However the quality of the service appears to have declined from the last time I was there, not as attentive, definitely not the 5 star service I had experienced in the past: you had to wait for water glass refills, they were slow to clear off the dirty plates when you went for the next course..a major change was the coffee which came out watery & somewhat strange tasting - it was unclear if this was a quality issue caused by the Ocean House, or whether there was a problem with the beans the got from their supplier Dave's Coffee (the waiter obligingly made another pot using more coffee grounds - it was better but still a bit off). The brunch is still a special experience if you haven'the done it.
My husband lives and works in Saudi Arabia....I live and work in Seattle, WA. The Ocean House has been OUR place (and our daughters) for years. We have celebrated special events, as well as a simple meal out. We have/will readily travel from our distances, just so that we may spend time at "The House".....our most recent visit was with our daughter and a special friend of her's....we were delighted in sharing our "House" with him. It was his first experience with you.....you now have another devote.....
Thank you again.....see you soon!
Food was outstanding. Service was mixed. View was disappointing. Hotel, host and brunch staff were very friendly and attentive. Our waiter was less than good. Name was Sean but his name tag read Dana. Apparently his was stolen or lost so he just wears random names. His attention to service matched this attitude. He did not seem to care. The biggest disappointment had to do with our seating. Visiting a venue named Ocean House one would expect to have a view of the ocean. Our view was of the side lawn. Quality of the food was outweighed. Paying a premium for a meal at an ocean front property and not getting to enjoy the view combined with lackluster service is why I would not recommend to a friend.
We have been many times for Sunday Brunch and loved it. This time it was a holiday and the web site did not note that it would take place in the basement with hundreds of families with children. It should be noted on the web site of changes like that as not to be so surprised and upset once arrived!
However, the staff quickly came to the rescue and accommodated us in every way. It was a happy ending to a shocking beginning thanks to the attentive staff.
My Mom and I were doing a day trip from Boston to visit our old stomping grounds, and lunch at The Ocean House was the highlight. We sat on the porch on the most beautiful of days and could practically see the houses on Block Island it was so clear.
Fitzroy was our server and could not have been nicer or more attentive.
The food was very good. We each had a salad and we ordered a side of French fries. The fries were a tad soft and a little more greasy than I like, but they had good flavor and they gave us the biggest portion ever.
The prices were very reasonable. I think their lunch prices have come down some. I remember thinking before that they were quite pricey, but now they are not.
Also, be sure to stop by the gift shop. It is not your normal hotel gift shop!
Our lunch at Seasons was delightful. I took a friend who has never been there and she loved it. Our servers were wonderful. The Ocean House is one of my favorite places in RI. We will be returning there soon. It was a memorable day!
We were a party of three adults and one 17 month old. We were received cordially and a high chair was quickly supplied. The wait staff were very accommodating. We loved the raw bar, crepe station, desserts, and of course the main breakfast items we ordered. We took our time, but did not feel rushed. The ocean views are spectacular and the ambience is elegant as well as casual. We were celebrating a birthday (second time around; we were there for the same occasion a few years ago, sans baby), and it is a great place for such an occasion. I've only been there for the Sunday Brunch, which I can highly recommend. I'm sure other meals are of the same high quality.
A great night. Service and food were well above expectation. Wine steward was notable for his knowledge and educational approach. Service was very attentive without being intrusive. Food was delicious. We will be back. Off season is a special treat given the light attendance.
We were really looking forward to brunch at Ocean House. The view and location are spectacular and the menu was something to look forward to on a beautiful Sunday afternoon. However, we were disappointed that there were several items that were not available at our reservation time. For the price and reputation of this highly rated restaurant, I would not expect them to be out of the seafood crepe and several offerings of the dessert.
Food was delicious, well prepared and attractively presented. Service did not match the food unfortunately. While friendly, servers were not well trained. We had to ask for everything from coffee to champagne refills to silverware. Plates were not cleared timely and our server was very confused by my request for hard eggs on the seafood Benedict. They arrived at the table twice, runny and inedible for me. However we will be back and try again because the food and ambience was terrific.
We had a table for two, by the water side window reserved weeks ahead of time,....and 2 tables away sat a screaming 1-2 year old in the dining room at 8pm, which went on for an hour plus, as the mom stood holding the child, walked the child around (grunting and screaming). Bringing large toys for the child into the dining room in an attempt to quiet the child. The parents of course were clueless, and the staff made no attempt to let the parents know they were disrupting the entire dining room. Very attentive servers when they were at our table, however long gaps of no one being around especially just prior to the entree's arriving which showed up barely room temperature, and parts of both dishes were very cool. The chairs are porch wicker chairs made for sitting on a deck, porch or lawn.
We have been going to the Ocean House for Anniversaries and Birthdays since it reopened. After a bit of struggle to get itself going, it became a premier place to go to enjoy especially the Sunday Brunch. We remember many fine choices for our entrees, like seared ahi, prosciutto hash, eggs with thick sliced black forest ham. Unfortunately, the menu has gone downhill this year. A poor boy sandwich at a $60 brunch? The black forest ham sliced like cold cuts! And the crepes used to be sensational. No longer any any seafood option, or beef Bourguignon. Beans! Vegetarian is good but cannelloni beans in a crepe? It did not work. And the French macarons are just minis, no more regular size like you find in the pâtisseries of Paris. I'm sorry but it is no longer worth the price for the atmosphere and view.
we stay at the Ocean House every year, and every year we have dinner at the restaurant, and every year we say: "that was good, but it should have been great". the setting is beautiful, the bar is great, the views are great, the service is very good and friendly and the food is fine. the menu is creative, the ingredients are fresh, the presentation is inventive, but for some reason (i'm clearly not eloquent enough to describe) the food is just fine/good. it's not memorable or mind-blowing. in this setting, at these prices, it ought to be.
