There's a lot to love about this Clayton icon. A wonderfully reasonable Happy Hour, consistently good food and a great long-term staff of servers which always shows that management is doing something right. A good selection of spirits and wine and a comfortable environment. During great weather, the open-air bistro is delightful and almost as nice when the windows remain... More

Always a reliable and delicious dinner and dessert!!! Every time we eat here I leave talking about how delicious my meal was and how amazing their desserts taste. Great staff, TV and sports games on at the bar if you need something more than a fancy dinner.

Seafood restaurant is stylish but food falls short. Good location, and high potential but more attention is needed in the kitchen. Crab cakes and chowder were below average; salmon and trout were average. High prices increase expectations for the highest quality ingredients, preparation, and innovation, so we were disappointed.

Our office team went to lunch at Oceano Bistro recently. The restaurant is located on the southeast corner of Brentwood at Maryland in the Clayton business district. Inside there are several rooms and you can tell the restaurant has been added onto during its various iterations over the years. The menu at Oceano is largely seafood (as one would expect... More

We ate at oceano with friends and our meal was great. They had a great cocktail menu and I tried the oceans martini, it tasted great but was very tart. We had a hard time deciding on what to order bc everything looked so good. We started with the calamari appetizer and it does not disappoint. It's was fried but... More

We had the tuna appetizer which was amazing! We also had some type of risotto shellfish type broth / stew which was also very very good ! It had crab legs, mussels, shrimp and monster scallops. Don't forget the portabella mushroom side....Service and cocktaiks were also wonderful. Definitely costs a pretty penny but worth it.

Lovely room with delicious food. Particularly like their Caesar Salad and Grilled Scallops. Really nice lunch options too. Friendly servers with a manager checking to see if everything is okay.
