Astounding menu. Sand days! I started off with the mussels and then had the sand dabs. Mussels were fresh and flavorful and the sand dabs were perfect. Service was excellent. Chef stopped by to see how we had enjoyed our appetizers, which he correctly identified. That kind of attention to detail amazed. Odd location hidden behind a McDonald's.

Had dinner here last night 9/17/14 and was simply astounded by all of the raves I have heard for this place. Companion had the Boulabaise and I had the pan seared scallops. Everything was a la carte and the entrees were $26.95 and $21.95 respectively. I received 4 small scallops and a mound of instant mashed potatoes with a few... More

I don't know what is going on with the septic but I have been there twice and each time the good food was made disgusting by a sewer smell throughout the establishment.

If you are a seafood lover Oceans is the BEST seafood restaurant you can find in Cathedral City. In my opinion the is only one other seafood restaurant in all of the Valley that can try to compete. Do not miss the opportunity to try the very best!

Tuesday evening after Memorial Day. Arrived about 7:00, only two or three other diners and we had the place to ourselves by 7:30. Small little place that seats maybe 20 inside and another dozen outside. Nice list of specials including abalone piccata. Two nice glasses of wine and we ordered scallops and the seared ahi, Cajun style. Both were served... More

I have been by Oceans many times, so it was a great surprise when my friends took me to dinner there for my birthday. The restaurant itself is very small but there is outside seating. Due to its size, it can be a bit noisy. I had the sand dabs cooked with capers which were delicious. My friend had the... More

A very small, very noisy restaraunt inside. Eat outside for a great meal. I had the best abalone I have had since being in San Francisco many years ago. I had given up on having ab. My wife had the clams and said they were also great. The other folks had halibut and mussels that they said we also great.... More

The food was outstanding service was very well mannered and efficient. (not like some on El Paseo) next time we are the area we will be... More
