I wish the bar area was bigger, because there is no where to wait for your table. Their menu is always good, but it's not cheap.
I enjoyed a spinach salad with a nice piece of salmon. Generous portion and prepared to my liking. Just enough dressing and strawberries and almonds mixed in. Friends who recommended it said dinner was popular there.
This is a frequent haunt of me and my friends. We go there at least weekly to enjoy their broad wine selection and their wonderful food. Their hosts and hostesses are most gracious and accommodating. My only problem is their lack of outdoor seating. The place across the street has an extensive patio, but otherwise is a loser in terms... More
I was in St. Louis on a business trip and made this my going away dinner. It came on a recommendation of a work colleague and did not disappoint. I sat at the bar since it was happy hour. The drinks were fantastic. I ordered the grilled vegetable appetizer and that was amazing. My meal was the sea bass on... More
If the food was excellent, why not rate the establishment higher- well, the service was actually overbearing, demeaning and annoying. I was meeting a friend I hadn't seen for years and it was also pretty noisy for conversation. My friend had the lobster risotto- looked dry to me but she didn't complain. My small filet was excellent- flavorful and done... More
Amazing food and service! We visited Oceano Bistro during a recent weekend trip to St. Louis. We actually ate there twice because the service and food was so great! First, the service – Our hostess and waitress were wonderful! The manager even came and spoke to us for a while. When we came back the second time, both the hostess... More
I know I've previously reviewed Oceano but I was so impressed that I feel another review is warranted. We sat at the bar before dinner and chatted with the bartender, one of the managers (Josh - the one that's fun and nice) and the owner. We ended up sitting by a window (it was a beautiful evening). Our server was... More
The service for lunch was wonderful and attentive. The waiter bent over backwards to please our picky group of friends. Everyone enjoyed their food, except for the salmon burger, which was just o.k. Will definitely go back again. The view of the outdoor garden is beautiful.
The restaurant came very highly recommended from a number of acquaintances. Perhaps I have been spoiled by other excellent seafood restaurants but I felt underwhelmed. Rather than featuring the wide variety of fresh fish and shell-fish the place seemed to focus more on pastas, other dishes focusing less on the fish themselves. I was also disappointed in this restaurant having... More
My son and I ate here on a Sunday evening. The server was attentive, but not over the top. We never received bread and butter like other tables did and no offer was made for dessert. The crab cakes were tasty, but not worth the price and the sea bass portion size was small compared to other seafood restaurants I... More
