“One of the Best in St Louis”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

This restaurant consistently delivers a great meal at a reasonable price, considering the quality. Along with the food, the atmosphere and service are superb! Their brunch is also worth the visit.

I'd recommend their salmon, scallops and sea bass. All expertly prepared. Their wine list is also interesting with a good price range. And their desserts are fantastic.

“Never tire of the excellent food”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

this is our neighborhood go-to place, always have great dinners. We have a frequent diner card, and have used it several times. The appetizers can be combined for a dinner, as it's too difficult to choose just one. But, the main dishes also have consistently been well-prepared. I have had just about all items on the menu and loved all of them. Truly. And, I'm a pickier than average eater.

“Perfect Prawns”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

My husband and another couple went to Oceano for Clayton Restaurant Week. The restaurant was packed. Thank goodness we had reservations because the wait for a table was over an hour. We were seated at a table in a corner next to the server station. It was weird having the servers stand right next to the table to enter an order. Also, the room was extremely cold. We asked the owner if we could move tables. He quickly obliged and we were able to keep the same server. David was great. Perfect timing on pouring wine, checking on us and he knew all about the wine. Love that! We had prawns (delicious and perfectly cooked), Tuna (yum!) and Sea Bass (perfectly seasoned and cooked). Dessert was a brownie wrapped in a puff pastry, not sure if I am explaining this correctly, but it was amazing and it went really well with the wine David suggested. This was an extremely pleasant visit. We will go back.

“Nothing Special”
Reviewed January 14, 2013

Took my mother for her 80th birthday. Indifferent service and food that was just okay -- nothing special, and certainly not memorable. We won't go back.
