Seasons At The Ocean House Ratings and Reviews

I was vey disappointed in my experience, and I can not understand how this restaurant got the prestigious ratings it has. The place basically has no decor and relies on its view. No flowers, wall hangings, or ways to create ambiance. I was celebrating an anniversary and was seated within ear shot of a wailing toddler, then a large family of 6 (very loud) were seated near us. I could not hear any music or our own conversation! The chef seemed incapable of cooking rare meat. Because the steak had to be sent back (very hesitantly by our server) , we ate our meals separately. Long time in waiting for a new glass os wine while food was getting cold. Alas, it took 40 minutes to get our check paid after we were done.

Thought everything was beautiful, food was very good and the waitstaff was superb. Only one disappointment...could not get to the beach unless you were a hotel guest. We were looking forward to a nice stroll after a lovely brunch.

This was our third time to the Ocean House for lunch. The setting is very nice. But once again as in the past, the food was not great. I had the fish and chips and the fish was tough. My wife had a scallop roll and she said the scallop in the sandwich was scant. I also noticed a certain malaise among the staff. I did not really sense a warm and fuzzy feeling from them . Also, we came for lunch and we were offered a table in a room with no one else in it. I insisted that we sit in the front room that had other diners in it because it would not have been any fun to sit by ourselves.

On our way to Nantucket, we make stop in the area and have dinner at the Ocean House. It is our reward after fighting the I-95 traffic for hours. We have doing this for the past 2years. The food is amazing, the service is warm and welcoming and it is a beautiful inn and restaurant . It was by far our best dinner of the vacation !!!

This is an annual event for us when we are in RI. A "don't miss" experience. The service is excellent and attentive without being obsequious. The menu and dishes are creative, fun and delicious. We really can't think of anything we would want them to improve on.

Brittany, our server, was excellent. She made us feel welcome and created a wonderful atmosphere. The hostess who called to confirm the reservation, plus the hostess who showed us to our seat, made us feel less than welcome. What she didn't know is that my dearest and oldest friend with whom I was dining, is married to an accomplished chef, and both of us have had our fair share of dining at comparable establishments. There must be a better way to have a first impression. On the phone, she asked us if we were actually coming, twice, and then when we arrived, showed us the prix fix menu to ensure we were prepared for the price. I would suggest that they ask to "confirm" our arrival, and share the cost of the prix fix items over the phone in case a guest may be uncomfortable once seared. While we were prepared to foot the bill, I'm sure someone else might be a little surprised; showing the menu as a way to disclose the price puts the diner in an uncomfortable spot. Phone disclosure might allow another diner to bow out without feeling the embarrassment of bowing out in front of a special date. On the flip side, we decided to come back for drinks and appetizers the next day because of the warmth that Brittany showed during our meal. We left on such a high note that it completely overshadowed our first impression.

You really have to appreciate molecular gastronomy to enjoy the food at Seasons. I'm not particularly thrilled with it but the food was very good. Mostly everything is locally sourced or somewhat locally sourced. The little green salad was outstanding and my veal was very nice. My husband ordered the porchetta appetizer. If you know what porchetta is and expect that you will be baffled! Anyway, I'm over molecular but the restaurant was in our hotel and we enjoyed it well enough!

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.
