Seasons At The Ocean House Ratings and Reviews
There is nothing that can compare to the ...
There is nothing that can compare to the view at the Ocean House. The table that was set aside for us was not yet ready, so we were upgraded to table 12 (ask for table 12!), the best seat in the house for 2-4 diners. You can choose from a wide variety of food buffet style, and then you order your main meal. The buffet selections featured delectable items at various stations. Clams on the half shell with various toppings, cold cooked shrimp, little frittatas, croissants, an impressive selections of cheeses, plus oatmeal, fresh berries, etc., etc. I only wish I could have tried everything, but I was saving my appetite for the eggs benedict I'd ordered. That was the only item that was less than stellar because the egg yolks were overcooked and didn't spill out over the ham and English muffin. But that was a very minor disappointment. Unlimited mimosas included! And then there was the dessert bar-- lots of small items-- tarts, fruits, and chocolate delicacies so you could try several different things. Everything we had was mouth-watering. I appreciated the slow pace of the service. The staff was attentive, but we were never made to feel hurried. Is it expensive? Yes, but it's worth it. (I believe the brunch was $62 per person.) I would strongly recommend the Ocean House, especially for a special occasion (it was my mom's 82nd birthday).

Lunching outside on the veranda terrace was lovely. Wish I could say the same for the service. Our waiter, who told us this was his third summer working there, could not have received much training during the prior 2 summers. He took our order, disappeared, then served the soup without providing utensils ( we had to ask for them), returned and asked us to reorder! This was only to be outdone by him dropping our coffee cups ( they shattered) and never providing us with the dessert menu- until after we paid. Food was good, the service left something to be desired. Slow...

Visited with a friend for Sunday brunch to celebrate her birthday. We were seated promptly. The staff was attentive, professional and very cordial. The food was excellent, selection varied and replenished frequently so you were never faced with an empty platter. We never felt rushed even though the restaurant was busy!
Location and view spectacular!
As we finished, my friend was presented with a parting gift and congratulatory birthday card! Very thoughtful!

I generally do not take the time to write a review, but I will make an exception for Seasons. If I could give the restaurant ten stars, I feel that that would still be inadequate. My wife and I went there for our forty-fifth wedding anniversary and everything about our experience was outstanding. From the time we arrived until the time we left, we were treated with the utmost courtesy and attentiveness by the staff and servers. The bar area, the restaurant and the food were wonderful and the ambience was delightful. We will definitely return again and I highly recommend Seasons to everyone else.

We love Chef Jacob, his food, sourcing, and crew, especially Richard, and Megan at the front.😍
The hotel is another story. They won't let our retired service dog, now therapy dog stay at the hotel because she is over 40 pounds.😢
We drove up to Watch Hill from Rye, NY for the day and had lunch at the Ocean House. What a delightful place! Good value for lunch with a spectacular location, inside and out. Our server was not only attentive, but even volunteered to take pictures of us with the wonderful views.

The food was incredible. I was very disappointed in the service, however. I know it's the beginning of the season, but although the hostess and waitstaff were all very nice, nobody except the valet parking lot attendants were on their game. It had the feeling they were a bunch of kids with their first summer jobs, which might be okay for a less expensive restaurant, but not for a restaurant that's supposed to be at a higher level. We waited a long time for everything, and tried unsuccessfully to get people's attention as they walked on by in zombie trances. It wasn't even that busy. I would go back later in the season when the kids have gotten a little more experienced.
As usual the ocean house is a beautiful place. The view is spectacular. Service was very good.
The food was ok. Apparently food costs are an issue, cause their portions dissapoint. Breakfast was a nice snack for $33 per person. Pastry basket was good. No restaurants food is so special that you should leave hungry. Apparently the Ocean House dissagrees. Feast on the View!
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.
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.
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.
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, 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!
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.

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.
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.
