We loved Oceana, everything about it! The ambiance is incredibly beautiful, sitting outside directly waterfront watching the boats sail in and out of the cove and the sun set behind the mountains. The drink menu was creative and so yummy. The food was second to...none on the island. Delicious selections and expertly prepared! My husband said it was the best salmon he has ever had (and that comes from someone who eats salmon 2-3x per week!). Service was great too. All in all, we had an incredible family dinner evening thanks to this wonderful spot!More

This place was second to none. Atmosphere was amazing, right on the water, open air seating. Service was top notch and the food was to die for. Filet, mahi, and stripe bass (special) were out of this world. Pricey ($200 all in for 3), but...Would highly recommend.More

This is the first time we dined here. I had the veal chop that was a feature that evening. My spouse and sister-in-law had the filet and brother-in-law had the fish. My brother-in-law & sister-in-law also shared the chicken pate. All the food was excellent...as was the service. The view was beautiful. We will return.More

We had a three course meal with cocktails and it was absolutely delicious. It is not a cheap place to dine but it was half the price I paid for a similar dining experience three days earlier in Red Hook. The service was impeccable with...million dollar views; in addition, the food is five star quality. It's a must do if you have time- We will go again. Reservations are a must.More

The location and ambiance are great, the view of the water during sunset makes for the perfect dinner backdrop. We enjoyed all our food and loved that you could see the chefs preparing your food without feeling like you're in the kitchen and it's apparent...they use only the absolute freshest ingredients. The service was superb aside from the host being a bit aggressive when we called to see if we could move our reservation back but the rest of the experience outweighed that. We will be back.More

Four of us went for Sunday Brunch and were eager to talk since we hadn't seen each other in awhile. Imagine our chagrin when the hostess tried to seat us next to the musician (who was awful - by the way). We immediately asked to...move to another table and the hostess, who recognized our friends as 'regulars,' was accommodating. So the first thing is to ask NOT to be seated next to the musician - unless you're alone and not trying to converse. Ask for a specific table - far away from the music. We ordered the Salmon Benedict, which was delicious!More

I waited all week to eat here for my birthday dinner. It wasn’t worth the hype. I ordered my $35 tuna medium and it was cooked so well that it was barely edible. Nothing but fish plated on top of puréed baby food. Appetizers were...good, but I wouldn’t recommend this place. Very disappointed.More

After waiting over an hour and fifteen minutes between our appetizer and main courses, my family of four was approached by the manager to inform us our food was on its way. We told him we had heard this twice already, but still had no...main course, nor an apology. He said that’s why he came over (to apologize) but interestingly enough, didn’t actually say sorry until prompted. It was clear that this type of delay and an insincere “apology” was perfectly acceptable to him. He also was unable to explain why there was such a drastic delay when asked. One of our dishes was in plain sight sitting at the kitchen counter for over twenty minutes. Instead, he was dismissive and then began to mockingly pretend to beg for forgiveness when asked for some accountability. I truly have NEVER been treated in this manner by anyone in a restaurant. My daughter was distressed for over half an hour because she was hungry, she left in tears, and our evening was ruined. They clearly don’t feel accountable or care about a guest’s experience because they will fill your seat with someone else. That was apparent in the manager’s patronizing response to this situation. Don’t waste your time or energy here, or worse yet, let them ruin your vacation.More

The ambiance of this place is TOP NOTCH. Right on the edge of the water and the restaurant itself is modern and beautiful. The food was delicious and there were even chairs under the palms to sit for a cocktail.

They are not but they were scheduled to reopen in October. The best bet is to call the Grande Cru at Yacht Haven Grande-- they'd have the answer because it is the same owner. Hope this helps
