We stopped in on a spur of the moment for dinner because we were in dislike for seafood. The place is small but the ambiance is very intimate. Dimly lit with twinkle lights. We decided to try the Caesar salad along with surf and turf lobster and steak dinner. All I can say is AMAZING! One of the best dinners... More

We were looking for a nice place to have dinner with friends and searched Trip Advisor for some close places to our hotel with good reviews. We made a reservation with Open Table. When we first arrived we weren't sure what to expect, it was in what appeared to be a strip mall. Don't let this stop you! It was... More

We found this restaurant by accident. It serves primarily fish but you can get other foods as well. I had the Sea bass and it was outstanding. I am not a fish eater but this meal was cooked to perfection. My husband had the salmon and he loved his dinner. The ambiance is lovely. The service was great. We definitely... More

The food here is always good, and just a little classy. The atmosphere is relaxed and the service is great. Eating outside is tough in summer, but delightful even in winter. Lots of fish dishes, but also steaks and other things too.

WE just learned that this place has been here for 20 (?) years. The food and servce was excellent. There appeared to be many locals during lunchtime. Linen and special touches. Excellent sea bass.

My wife and I stopped here for lunch, looking for possible seafood places to celebrate my mother's upcoming 90th birthday. My wife's blackened salmon practically melted in your mouth, and my swordfish was excellent. My Manhattan clam chowder was also excellent, and the lemoncello gelato for dessert was refreshing and delicious. This is also one of the most reasonably priced... More

Ocean's was recommended to by one of my husband's patients so we decided to give it try on our latest trip. We went there for lunch and I had the lobster Caesar salad and my husband had the grilled prawns. Both dishes were just excellent and the service was fantastic so we made reservations to go back yesterday evening for... More

We met two freinds for lunch during a brief stay in the desert. We ordered seafood ceasars and they were stupendous. Five or 6 mussels, a couple of clams, scallops, a chunk of lobster and a couple of big fat shrimp. All served on a lightly dressed, generous caesar of romaine. (14$ each) I should add the lemon sorbet or... More

Oceans has been around for more than twenty years, perhaps longer since we've lived here in the valley for nineteen years. Our family has dinned at Oceans several times. It is predominately seafood oriented. They offer several steak and chop dishes, rather average, not too tasty. You can have a nice evening at Oceans, large wine list, friendly fast service.... More

Yes, fresh fish in the Desert!!! checked with the waiter if it was frozen, no was the answer, they are getting it fresh all the time. I can attest to that (coincidentally was near the restaurant) as 2 days later a Truck pulled up delivering just as he mentioned. The quality of the food is top, and so is the... More
