Oceana vs. Manhattan Ocean Club

  • g

Which one is better ? I am looking for everything, food, decor, ambience, service, and economics (price).

  1. Oceana in every respect. I thought MOC was a tired, touristy place, while Oceana was pure class.

      No comparison. Oceana is a superior and much more sophisticated dining experience. The only thing that would top it as a seafood restaurant is Le Bernadin, and I prefer Oceana since the service is warmer, friendlier and a little less formal. MOC is a little like a steakhouse that serves fish, not that there is anything wrong with that - in fact I might choose it with a large group.
