We used to love Ocean Star. And I always strive to write fair and balanced reviews. Ocean Star was our "go to" place for sushi for years. It has been about six months since we were last there, and the drop in quality was very noticeable. At first we thought it was under new management. Saw some of the same... More

Beautiful view and very good food. Service is slow. We eat at the bar. It's a little quicker. Bartender is great!

I'll just start by saying, we used to love the old Ocean Star when it was on East bay. This one..not so much..the sushi was fine, but the hibachi. ..worst I've ever had. The "chef" cooked for my family of 4, start to finish cook time ...8 minutes..no show , no communication, slapping the spatulas and no shrimp appetizer that... More

We really liked the seafood here. I had the snapper and it was really delicious -- We got to sit out on the deck -- cool looking out over the expensive yachts and marina. They also have a hibachi grill and they do take reservations. All the food choices were good and they have an extensive wine list. Service was... More

Service was painfully slow, it took 20 minutes to get our drinks and close to an hour to get our sushi.

The Hawaiian roll and cucumber salad are the best! We all enjoy dinning here and sometimes place a to go order and pick up on our boat. The fish is fresh and everything is always delicious. Great water and Yacht view too.

Terribly slow. We had an 8pm reservation for 4. We arrived at 8pm and were told there was a 20 minute wait (after waiting 10 minutes in line to find this out). Asked if someone would get us at the bar when the table was ready. The hostess said "of course". 30+ minutes later we were still waiting. The hostess... More

So surprised to find really fresh, perfectly prepared sushi on a little island in the middle of nowhere. Lovely restaurant with great views of the water and marina. We have tried just about all the different offerings on the sushi menu and loved every one - including the rolls. They have the hot grills where you can sit and eat... More

Luckily, we arrived in time to get our drinks and see the sun set over the water. We had great, friendly service with helpful suggestions and menu explanations. The soft shell crab appetizer was the best I've ever had, salads were crisp with lots of ginger, vegetarian tempura was very good, and the tuna teriyaki was out of this world.... More
