Ocean and its sister restaurant, 26 Twenty Six located next door, are locally owned and operated by George Reis.

Ocean’s ambience is candle lit, white tablecloth with soft aquatic tones dominating. The focal point at Ocean is the exposed kitchen with flames rising beyond the bar. Gleaming tile beams—of every shade of ultramarine—rise to the ceiling, breaking the dining space visually, while maintaining the open space. And tall windows overlook both 20th Street South and a patio with its own bar.

Ocean offers fresh seafood in an exciting and contemporary atmosphere. The menu changes nightly and features fresh oysters and fish from around the world at your Birmingham table.

And this AAA Four Diamond restaurant has been awarded Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for seven consecutive years: 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010, as well as the AAA Diamond Award for 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2010.
