this was our first visit to Oceano Bistro. We enjoyed it immensely and our meal and service were top notch. It isn't quiet in the main dining room since the kitchen is open to diner's view. However, it wasn't overly loud. It was a very chilly and blustery night and everytime the door opened, we could feel the cold air at our table. The poor folks at the bar must have been frozen due to its proximity to the entrance. Perhaps if you can reserve a table at one of the window tables as they looked to be more intimate and quieter. I had the lobster risotto which was great and my husband had the salmon in a maple soy glaze. Dining here made our Christmas Eve for two very memorable.
