As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including steak-cut Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole or bluefin tuna. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.

"Our first visit to Oceanaire met our high expectations -- fairly high prices, but matched by excellent food, good service, and a subdued, "rich" atmosphere."

"Just off 5th Avenue, up a flight of stairs, sits a mini-vacation spot. You truly get a tropical vibe as soon as you enter, and even though it's all just pretend, it's fun. The food and service are fine -- nothing you would make a special trip for, but certainly good enough that no one is likely to complain. My suggestion is -- if you are in the nabe, give it a try. Most likely, you will be glad you did."

"All the food was very good, but just not quite up to the expectations that had been set by previous reviewers. But go here for the scene -- it's a beautiful spot, not like most in its category. And all dishes are presented with care and artfulness. One small demerit, however, for staff clearing plates before everyone finished eating."

Savor dishes rich with authentic Italian influences at Wolfgang Puck’s first Italian restaurant, Lupo at Mandalay Bay. With dishes inspired by Rome and its neighboring regions, the menu features a contemporary blend of tastes from the old country. Indulge in wood-oven baked pizzas, homemade pastas, savory seafood and enticing entrees. The restaurant boasts exhibition pizza, antipasto and dessert stations, a glass-enclosed area where fresh pasta is made daily and a spacious bar in the center of the restaurant. The open and airy dining room provides the perfect setting for people watching without leaving the hotel.

Havana Central transports you to pre-Revolution Cuba with swanky decor, lively jazz, relaxing bar and beloved recipes. Traditional Cuban cooking is a labor of love: many dishes are slow-cooked over low heat and require constant attention to create that perfect flavor. Executive Chef Stanley Licairac has mastered the patience and style necessary to recreate old-world Cuban classics.

"...with very decent food. Nothing we ate was a foodie's delight, but it all was good. We enjoyed the live music -- this felt like a party we happened to drop in on. The mojito was one of the best I've ever had."

At King and Duke, we showcase locally sourced ingredients through simple, yet focused hearth cooking. Our goal is not to manipulate food, but to accentuate the natural flavors of our products through slower methods of cooking and the smoke of the wood fire. Through this primitive technique, constantly moving and manipulating the live fire, we invest exacting attention to the preparation of each and every dish.<br /><br />Our managing partner, Ford Fry, named the restaurant after two characters in Huckleberry Finn, “The King” and “The Duke," a pair of grifters who ‘put on airs’ and pretended to be royalty, when in fact they were a couple of hillbillies who lived in the woods. With our slightly mischievous ways ☺, a huge focus on quality, yet a primitive cooking style and down-to earth atmosphere, Chef Fry felt like it was the perfect name for our newest restaurant.

"Four of us (from NY) ate in the outdoor space. Perfect. The popovers were wonderful. Salmon, pork chop, burger with fries, all excellent. And while the service was professional, they get a de-merit for starting to remove dishes while two of us were still eating. That's a no-no for a high-end restaurant, especially since, on an early Sunday evening, the place was less then half full."

Lola Restaurant comfortably integrates white linen elegance with a fresh and innovative “New American” cuisine that is perfectly prepared and impeccably served. Strong Asian and French influences inspire the contemporary and eclectic culinary style of Chef Michael Ginor and make for a unique dining experience. Lola is dressed up as a special occasion restaurant inspired by New York City hotspots, but is sociable and affordable enough for every occasion. A full bar, comprehensive wine list and fine selection of mouth-watering desserts will complete your meal, all while the atmosphere and décor transport you to the heart of New York City without leaving the Island. Owner and Chef Michael Ginor personally attends to every detail to ensure that your dining experience is superb. It enjoys a dedicated following of appreciative diners from Long Island and New York City.
