“All around winner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Everything about this restaurant is the tops. All the food served to the table was top notch. Service was professional but friendly. The ambience is so relaxing, right on the water. A really special spot and a really memorable meal.

“Great meal excellent service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

Would highly recommend this restaurant. We went with a large party everything was served expertly, the food was delicious and the wine list was deep and did not hurt our pocket too hard.

“Unforgettable meal in every way.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2012

I chose Oceana for a romantic New Year's Eve dinner and it did not disappoint. After much difficulty getting a taxi I called to see if we'd still be able to get a table despite being 45 minutes late. They were gracious and the host told me he would "see what he could do." Upon arrival we had a short wait before the host seated us at a corner table overlooking the water. It was absolutely gorgeous, romantic, and special--exactly what I'd hoped for.

Our server was attentive, personable and knowledgeable. The host stopped by once to check on us, which was a nice follow-up after the frustrating taxi experience. Dinner was the best we had on the island (and we ate at some very nice places!). I ordered the roasted red and yellow beet salad; the beets were sliced and served with slices of mozzarella cheese, quite delicious. We shared a bowl of shrimp bisque, also delicious. Our entrees were fantastic (I had fish, my guest had steak). This was far and away my favorite restaurant on St. Thomas.

“Oceana”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2011

The food is good even if not enough for what you are paying. I found the menu limited. I left there after eating and was hungry shortly after. The atmosphere is ok; overlooking the water is nice but not much real view.

“Beautiful water channel veiw”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2011

Good food, service is good too. Although, found the managers and owner are not compassionate and openly pocked fun about a past employee who became disabled inherently. NOT COOL!!!
