The entire experience is top-notch. From the venue to the service and certainly the food. This is a true fine dining experience and well worth experiencing.

Every time we dine at Oceanique, we're impressed with the creative, delicious, and artful food and drinks. The house-made sauces, sorbets, and all complement and enhance familiar dishes-- kicking them up many notches on a gustatory scale! We're already planning our next visit to this hidden gem.

It wasn't that we did not like it, maybe the issue was that it was the last night of the Groupon, but the service was less than stellar. Three in our party ordered wine, however one memebr preferred a beer, given there was a menu for the beers, one was chosen- only to be told after a lengthy delay that they did not have it - then we were told they went out and purchased elsewhere and were chilling it, never to see it materialize? Main course was presented on a very hot plate, however the food was less than room temperature. It was redone, however by the time it was represented , all other in my party had completed their dinners. Coffee was offered and served, then another 10 minutes went by, coffee gone and the then the dessert was presented. If this was not what was thought to be a "high-end" restaurant I might be more forgiving, but the addition of the $75 tip at the end when service did not earn this was disappointing.

Flawless service, perfect presentation and portion size, impeccable attention to detai, excellent fish and home baked desserts. Only problem is noise level when restaurant full; we found conversation quit difficult.

We celebrated my mother's 75th birthday and had an amazing time. The wait-staff was wonderful. The food was amazing and so were the cocktails. We will definitely be coming back here again…

The service was excellent and the food was out of this world. We would go back again as soon as we get another Groupon offer.

From Our Editors

Oceanique's culinary history sparkles with the brilliance of a reef. The restaurant, after all, celebrated 25 years of fine dining history in February 2014 after gifting itself an interior renovation in July 2013. Now the space boasts cream walls, rectangular tables, and modern light fixtures to juxtapose the classic French cuisine that gave the restaurant its swagger. While the ambiance may have changed, Chef Mark Grosz still peppers his menu with the evidence of a culinary education acquired in France and under Jean Banchet at Le Francais. The eclectic dishes, which change daily, might pair butternut squash with salmon or drizzle rhubarb-mango chutney on foie gras. Beyond the signature seasonal fish dishes, they can devote full plate space to organic, ultrafresh produce, such as butternut squash and fiddleheads.

Even with its complex array of ingredients and tastes, the menu strives to remain approachable. Time Out Chicago writes that "while the multi-ingredient preparations border on overwhelming, Grosz somehow manages to balance flavors while completely flipping off subtlety." What results is a laid-back dining atmosphere lubricated by a choice of more than 800 wines and several vintage seawaters.
