By Travelzoo Staff
The Chicago Reader calls Oceanique an "elegant gem" of Evanston, praising the "artistic and well-executed" seafood dishes prepared by chef and owner Mark Grosz; Zagat agrees, awarding the restaurant a rating of "excellent" (25) and naming it Chicago's best seafood restaurant since 1993. With this offer, savor an ever-changing five-course chef's menu starting at $40 per person. 

Why we love it

  • For $79, indulge in a special chef's 5-course dinner for 2 at Oceanique (reg. $160)
  • "The 'fancy,' 'formal' setting and 'top-notch service' further elevate the experience" (Zagat)
  • Zagat also praises the "dazzling ... expertly prepared" cuisine
  • "Derring-do gets blended with common sense, and the result is an exciting and enjoyable ride" (Sun-Times)
  • 1 can dine for $40, or book a table for 4 for $150 and save the most

Great experiencing each tasting. Wine recommendations with tastings were nice as well!

Definitely worth the visit and would love to go back to try menu items.

The food was very good though not as spectacular as our past visits.

The service was uncharacteristicaly terrible. We brought friends and had raved about the restaurant so it was particularly disappointing. The manager on duty that night spent the evening drinking at the bar with a friend rather than overseeing the restaurant. We were shocked as our past experiences were all excellent.

Excellent variety of fresh fish on the tasting menu.
