Right on 5th Avenue in the Gaslamp District. Happy hour ends at 7:00 which is nice. Had a couple of martinis, spicy tuna roll and ahi tacos. Tacos were half price during happy hour which should be the regular price as they are VERY small. Food was okay but there were only 4 or 5 tables occupied on the sidewalk... More

The halibut that I had here was quite tasteless with rice, carrots and asperagus, but it was $29. They can charge that because its in a tourist area. Maybe their sushi is better, the waiter was nice.

In the Gas Lamp district & we were in need of both nosh & brew. Randomly picked out the Ocean Room during extended happy hour; prices were great on classic maki rolls, oyster shots, & both micro brews & house wines. Food quality good; service excellent, & great people watching from outdoor seating. My wife wanted Mexican food & they... More

We visited this restaurant on the spur of the moment. Good wine list, and well made sushi rolls. They also server extremely fresh oysters which I enjoyed immensely.

We were looking for a place for light fare and drinks and Ocean Room was a good choice. With many options to choose from in the Gaslamp District, this place holds its own. The oysters were fresh and delicious. Service was super and the casual vibe of the outdoor seating area was nice. While the patio is right on the... More

The wait staff were really nice, but this restaurant doesn't seem to have its act together. The lobster bisque and grilled salmon were disappointing. And the servers didn't seem to know what to do a lot of the time.

During a stroll in Gaslamp area, we made an impromptu visit for "Happy Hour". Wow was it excellent! The food, the presentation, the service and overall atmosphere of the place, all enjoyed. The kitchen right there at the bar was great to watch.

Happy hour 5-7. The oysters were fresh, the oyster shooters in the special ponzu sauce were scrumptious. Even the classic sushi options were tasty, the sushi rice was well seasoned and sticky! The bartender was fabulous and made the best hot and dirty martini we ever had (that means a lot coming from Boston) and for only $6! Must try... More

had dinner here after a long day touring the city. Their happy hour suited us for dinner as we missed lunch. Beer was $3 and some of the sushi was half price. I had a couple of beers, and lobster bisque soup which was excellent. Along with that I ordered California roll, Philadelphia roll and a Rainbow roll. On the... More

the food was average and the selection/menu was good, but it took over two hours for our meal to be served. Our party of 12 were the only people in the restaurant in the place.
