Great food!

Small and intimate. Did not expect much but was pleasantly surprised. Had the scallops and they were perfect. Quite a few specials offered and we will definitely go back next time we are in town.

I had the Oceans salad and it was excellent. Very tasty and fresh. My husband had abalone and also said his was very good. We sat on the patio which is covered and shaded by lush plants. Our dogs had a cool place to relax while we ate.

I read some varied reviews about Oceans so thought we would try it for ourselves. I was happily surprised by the resturant itself very cute with a real attempt to create an ambiance we chose to sit outside as it was a lovely evening where plants and lights created quite a romantic affect. We were handed menus after a short... More

Four of us went to dinner at Oceans and three out of the four of us felt the food was mediocre. The shrimp were overcooked, the swordfish was scant on the lemon butter sauce, the shrimp scampi sauce with angel hair was watery. After having made reservations, we were stuck in a back room which was hot and no windows.... More

We enjoyed pan fried oysters for our appetizers. Ferrari Carano wine was excellent with our dinner. We enjoyed surf and turf, chilian sea bass, fried prawns, and one other type of a fish dish. All dinners were very flavorful and good. Service was excellent, even the chef checked on us. Very nice low keyed restaurant. We will be back.

I specifically went to this restaurant for my birthday to have their Mussels in anise cream sauce and was not disappointed, they were absolutely delicious! They happened to have 14 oz Lobster Tails on special so my husband and I decided on the lobster. The tail was broiled and set on a mound of potatoes surrounded by fresh assorted veggies.... More
