Oceano has become our go-to spot for seafood (they have some very nice landlubber menu items, too). Ultra-fresh and nearly-perfect seafood in the Midwest? How 'bout that! I almost always order the blackened big eye tuna starter, where thin sheets of sashimi-grade tuna are delicately seared, then wrapped around salad bites with a wonderful ginger-radish kick; fantastic! An especially bright... More

We stopped in for a late lunch on a Sunday and got one of the best in St. Louis. We live 3 hours away, but come to StL very often. From the moment we walked in, the service, atmosphere, and food was incredible! We were seated immediately and our waitress was awesome. She explained everything to us, this being our... More

relaxed place for (after)-business dinner/conversation, though not-so-relaxed prices -- nice variety of well-prepared seafood, good selection of wines by the glass, helpful and friendly staff

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!
