Great choice in Clayton

This is a great choice for business and pleasure dining. The room is attractive and most importantly, the tables are properly spaced so that the noise level is okay for a business lunch. Great service. Our server appeared at the table often to see if we needed anything or to see how we were... read more

This is a fairly elegant restaurant where reservations are probably a must on weekends. A well balanced seafood menu with a couple of non-seafood items as well. Our waiter did point out a couple of vegan choices (though none of us are vegans). I had a wonderful spinach salad with goat cheese and strawberries. The "small" salad was really pretty... More

While in St. Louis for a few days we decided to try out some new dining experiences. Oceana Bistro sounded great and we are very familiar with Clayton. Win-Win. They had a modified sidewalk seating where the shutters opened and gave a patio feel. The menu and wine list were very good. We started with a cheese board and quickly... More

I often join friends there for Happy Hour. Exceptional appetizer menu and prices then. Also recently enjoyed a $25 prix fix Sunday night dinner with 3 courses. Pretty atomosphere and easy parking

We went to a nice wine dinner at Oceano in Clayton, more for the great-sounding seafood that was concocted as accompaniments than for the Terra d'Ora California wines. Everything was well organized and we had great little table in a raised area. Our server was with us throughout the night and did a fine job. Our favorite fish dish was... More

In town, visiting a new client in the Clayton area and decided to drive back for dinner. Based on Trip Advisor I stopped in to Oceano. Nice choice, not as expensive as I thought from the info shown. If you want fish, go here.

This is where you want to go for seafood in Saint Louis. The food, service, and atmosphere are phenomenal. We were there during restaurant week in January. We will be back again and again.

Great experience. Went with another couple to a wine pairing dinner. Food was excellent, service was great. Would definitely return. Seafood was cooked to perfection.

We had a wonderful evening there with a terrific waiter, Ed. He made sure my sensitivity to garlic was handled, by making great recommendations. The food was prepared beautifully.

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
