I have eaten at Ocean Bistro many times when traveling to St. Louis. It never disappoints. Great food and wine selection, always fresh and new menu options and the staff is well trained, efficient and helpful.

1st. They participate in OpenTable. Took only moments to make a reservation. 2nd. They have a excellent Happy Hour to retain the office crowd. We drove into Clayton for the HH and found the bar area packed. That's always a yin and a yang situation. Crowded, yes, but it indicates underlying quality. 3rd. They let us sit at a dining... More

My husband and I have celebrated almost every special occasion we have had since being married here. We only go when we know Mary is working at the bar. Absolutely love her- she still will make me a sorbet martini when we come in, my favorite :) The food is fresh. Happy hour specials don't get any better & the... More

I'm shocked to read the review that a face lift is needed. The atmosphere is WONDERFUL! No update could improve the experience. Amr the owner is super attentive, Jake and Mary at the bar are the best! And everyone loves Laura! ~William Burris

This is the nicest and best restaurant I've ever been to. It's not the cheapest but you get what you pay for. Very romantic on summer nights. We had the scallops and bacon wrapped salmon. Simply amazing food. Don't miss if you want something a little fancier.

One thing for sure is that it doesn't get better than Oceano when it comes to fresh fish. Although everyone likes to claim it, Oceano delivers on having fine dining and having fresh fish. The grouper or the scallops are two of my favorite dishes. The special apps. are usually very good. The spicy shrimp are always on the menu... More

I love Oceano ; great food; but after years of the same worn look it us time for a much needed face lift. I love the team; Brit; Ash; Zak ; Amer the Owner but really this restaurant must have a face lift. Amer is a close personal friend ... Time to put your best face forward. James Hornsby

. Very nice menu selection. We had a wonderful waitress. Excellent food! We sat on the porch by the street with the windows open. I would recommend this if the weather is pleasant. Very upscale and pricey; but we enjoyed ourselves,

Dropped in for a lunch with mom since we were in the neighborhood. Light and open, the atmosphere was very nice. Everything looked very clean in the dining area. Got seated immediately since we probably missed the lunch hour rush. Mom had the tuna burger and soup of the day. I had the healthy ragout. We were given complementary bread... More

Our group enjoyed fantastic crab cakes, tomato soup w/lobster and salmon grilled perfectly atop root veggies. Service was spot on--atmosphere was relaxing.
