Best lobster ravioli I've ever had. Attentive service. Place is small but exudes a lot of atmosphere.

We went to the restaurant as a party of 6. The service was attentive and friendly, almost like a family place. Everyone enjoyed their entre's - welll prepared, hot, very fresh and tasty.

We had dinner at Oceans a few nights ago for the third time in the last couple of years and it was even better than we had remembered. The atmosphere is comfortable but refined. Service is impeccable - attentive but not pretentious - and you get the impression that you are in very good hands. The waiters really do know... More

This small restaurant located in a strip mall in Cathedral City was recommended and it is excellent. It is quiet and if not recommended would not know it's there. It has a varied menu but known and has the freshest seafood. The fresh bread with fresh minced garlic and seasonings was different and tasty, ate too much of it. My... More

Oceans is a quiet, unassuming restaurant hidden in the middle of a strip mall in Cathedral City. If you are looking for fresh quality seafood, it's worth locating it. We were there with another couple recently and found the service, the food and the surroundings all very pleasant. It's a location where you can go and taste the food you've... More

This is a small restaurant set back in a strip mall that provides excellent service with an outstanding menu. There are specials each day in addition to the menu. My wife and I recently enjoyed lunch and dinner this month. Prices are reasonable and this is a must for locals as well as visitors to the Coachella Valley.

Although we had not been here in many years the food and service was recognizably the same. Friendly, attentive and knowledgable about the ingredients and menu items. Our server , the owner and the same gentleman , perhaps partner still the faces of this restaurant. I ordered frog legs as my appetizer. There are not many places that serve them... More

Do not miss the opportunity to have a meal at Oceans. The food is lovingly prepared. At times some items on the menu are sold out. If you experience this situation just move on to another superb choice. The wines are excellent in my opinion. A must visit to determine your rating of Oceans.

We found Oceans last year and went back for delicious lobster last night. Food was outstanding and they readily honored our request for no garlic. Service is always friendly. The owner is most solicitous and makes the rounds of all tables to chat and meet every need. We come to the area once a year and this is a definite... More

We joined a group of people for a pre-arranged dinner. We were seated in the back room which was not that special. It took quite awhile before a waiter arrived to offer us drinks and then awhile to get the drinks. We finally got our food perhaps 45 minutes later and it was not worth the wait. I've had a... More
