Food was overall very good. Our server seemed excellent. However.... Apps were delivered AFTER we had finished meal. One plate had a hair in the food. My wife became ill after eating and spent the night going to bathroom every 20 minutes. Food was beautiful, but for the price, the issues should not have occurred.

We have gone to Oceano a number of times. The service has never been outstanding, but we kept trying, because we enjoy a variety of seafood offerings. This past weekend was the last straw... The waitress was in a terrific hurry, to the point where she would skip half the table (of 6) when taking orders. It didn't matter if... More

My husband made reservations for our anniversary at Oceano; it was our first visit. We were greeted immediately and seated promptly. It was a Monday night rather early and I was surprised to see how active the place was already. Our waitress was attentive and professional. We ordered the two appetizer specials for that evening, the heirloom tomato salad and... More

Our party of four arrived to find that Oceano had no record of our 7 pm reservation. Since it was Clayton Restaurant Week, there must have been some confusion because there was no doubt that we HAD made a reservation. The staff handled the problem smoothly and assured us there had been others with a reservation mix-up and that seats... More

Our party of three visited during Clayton Restaurant Week when 11 restaurants offer three course meals for $25. The place was fairly empty at 5:30, but had filled up by 7:30 when we left. The service was excellent and attentive. We were disappointed by the size of the portions. I understand we were getting a deal, but other restaurants we... More

Special dinner celebration birthday and dropping daughter off at Washington University. Had outstanding dinner. Three seafood dishes all of them great, bread pudding was best ever. The only thing that could have made night better was the service and it was. Outstanding service. We will be back. Can't wait.

We shared a frito misto appetizer and it was very. Nice. Then we both had the ahi tuna special which is a low cal presentation. It was outstanding as... More

This is really more of a 3.5 star review. A friend and I came here fore dinner on a Thursday night. We had a reservation and were quickly seated. The atmosphere here is nice. We sat in the patio area right next to a window. While the view of the street is nothing special, it was nice to get light... More

No, not the best meal I've ever had but it was "VERY" good! If you love good seafood, I highly recommend! The restaurant was full of locals when we arrived ahead of the evening rush. The atmosphere was warm and cordial. Our server could not have been better! Highly recommend the oysters and mussel as appetizers!

I had a sabiche as an appetizer and the seared sea bus for main. Both were great. Defiantly a place I will recommended and come again when in town. And again, I followed trip advisor and was not dispointed!
