It is a great place to find authentic plates. However, the restaurant is always overcrowded while services is so disappointed.

Tried this restaurant over the weekend. The food is bland, barely warm and mediocre. The service is not attentive. It was a dissapointment. After the closing of Lakeside Deli Cafe Philadelphia lost the dim sum appeal for me.

This place is busy with people and mobile dim sum carts! My picky son even craves dim sum at the Ocean Harbor, so you know it's good and fun. You'll see a good mix of Chinese (which shows that the food is authentic) and Americans (which shows that it's pretty safe and friendly). If you're looking for a little bit of fun and a variety of what I call little dumplings, try dim sum!

When I come home to visit my parents, I always stop by here for some good Chinese dinner. This is one of the best place to dine at in Chinatown. Their guang dong pork chop, walnut shrimp, scallion/garlic lobsters, and jellyfishes are terriffic.

I'm half Chinese and moved from Chicago to Hartford a little over a year ago. Unlike Chicago, Hartford does not have a Chinatown and I miss having a variety of excellent Chinese restaurants from which to choose. Therefore, whenever we travel to a major city, we now have at least one meal in Chinatown. Ocean Harbor came highly recommended to us by a couple of locals for dim sum, but we found it to be only very average in terms of quality. Although it had 90 percent of the selection we like, including beef tendon (I'm staving off arthritis here) and tripe, everything we had was far from being the tastiest we've ever had. I even found myself wondering whether Ocean Harbor is a monosodium glutamate-free restaurant. However, given the dearth of Chinese food where we live, I must admit that I would be thrilled if Ocean Harbor were located in Hartford.

I came here for the seafood and it was all quite good. I ordered the sauteed Dungeness crab (I can't remember the sauce) and it was delicious. I have always claimed that no one knows better how to prepare seafood than the Chinese. I also ordered the salt baked shrimp and that was excellent. I tend to over order when I go to a Chinese restaurant because I like to try several dishes. Needless to say, I had a pretty hefty doggy bag when I left this place. The service was very good and the atmosphere a bit more upscale than most of the other restaurants I've been to in Chinatown.
