I'm from the east coast and didn't expect to find well prepared fresh seafood in a small town in Missouri 1,000 miles from the ocean, but Oceano Bistro has figured out how to do it. All three of the dishes we ordered were delicious---. The seared scallops served over grilled portabella mushrooms in a tasty citrus sauce; the grilled Branzino... More

We loved the atmosphere. The food was great and the service was equally delightful. We had the bread pudding for desert. It compared and ranked right u[ there with New Orleans bread pudding. Now that's hard to do, outstanding. Love the crab chowder.

The dinner was disappointing because the fish was very overcooked and dry. Good enough crabcakes, dry trout, good salad, abrupt service. The clientele seemed content yet the food was nothing special. No wows but gets the "Just fine" award from my husband and myself. Festive lighting added to the armosphere

I can always count on a great meal at oceano bistro. Last night is was Bronzini, one of my favorite fishes. The presentation was great, the sides dishes good. The wine tasty and fairly priced. The owner is always friendly and drops by to see if you are happy. I I think they should upgrade their signature cocktails. The atmosphere... More

Wonderful service! I didn't want a lot of spice so they offered to cook a special dinner for me not offered on the menu. The steak was cooked just right and the drinks were fantastic! Very nice restaurant!

Located at the corner of Brentwood and Maryland in Clayton, there is street parking available and also a public lot immediately south of the restaurant accessed from Brentwood. We were greeted promptly and led to our (reserved) table. The main dining room has booths with high backs,which allows for a very private feeling, as well as tables. We were seated... More

I visit St. Louis regularly to attend outstanding courses at the Physical Therapy School at Washington University and the visit typically includes a meal at Oceano. It has never disappointed and the food is always of a very high standard. I only order their seafood dishes and have enjoyed every dish that I have ordered.
