The setting for Oceana is beautiful but that's all I can say about the restaurant. It had been about 3 three years since we had been there so we decided to give it a chance. Our previous visit was less than stellar so we basically had avoided going back. However, this past May 10th 2015 we decided to give it... More

The view was great overlooking the ocean. Perhaps they had an off day because our meals were very average. I had the scallops which were huge and cook to perfection but were very very salty tasting. My husband had the seafood in the red sauce, once again disappointing because it was thin and watery and not much taste to the... More

I have been to Ocean several times but this past experience was so fantastic that I wanted to give them a review. If you are looking for a romantic fine dining experience look no further, Ocean is the place to go. Aside from the relaxing and low lit atmosphere in the evening, the food is worth every penny. My husband... More

This restaurant had one of the most romantic setting in St Thomas, Devin took excellent care if us and really knew the menu with detailed descriptions of all the entrees. The view was beautiful, open air, very special. Two of us had the shrimp, one had scallops, one had Scottish salmon, all were delicious, would definitely order again.

We loved this place. Was a bit hard to find since our Nav would not give turn by turn directions well but we finally did and we absolutely loved it! Our bartender JT was awesome and the food was perfect! Can't wait to get back very soon!!!

We lucked into a table without a reservation and the food and the atmosphere did not disappoint. The scallops were the best I've ever eaten and I enjoyed the Mahi Mahi and polenta. The chef even came out to greet us! I would definitely return.

Our party of four dined at Oceana on April 24, 2015 for the final night of a U.S. and British Virgin Islands visit. Oceana's property, which began as the Dutch Governor's Residence and later served as the Russian Embassy, now provides a fabulous waterside dining experience while retaining its elegant heritage and estate feel. You wind your way out to... More

The place was in a beautiful setting on the water. It was one of the best restaurants we went to. The food was great and so was the service. It was just a little far away from where we stayed but we really enjoyed it. I highly recommend this one!
