Amazing food and service! We visited Oceano Bistro during a recent weekend trip to St. Louis. We actually ate there twice because the service and food was so great! First, the service – Our hostess and waitress were wonderful! The manager even came and spoke to us for a while. When we came back the second time, both the hostess and the manager recognized us and welcomed us back! Again, the manager took the time to speak with us and asked us how our trip to St. Louis had been. Now the food. During our first visit we ate dinner – appetizer: Fritto Misto (rock shrimp, calamari, petite mushrooms, homemade pickles, fennel & onion), entree: Sauteed Warm Water Sea Bass, dessert: ice cream trio. Our appetizer was GREAT! It was perfectly fried, and it was not too crispy like you find at lower end restaurants. The rock shrimp practically melted in our mouth! Our sea bass dinner was even better and tasted AMAZING! The presentation was great – with complimenting colors and a drizzle of smoked tomato and citrus butter artistically placed in the dish. It was DELICIOUS! Onto dessert - We ordered ice cream (which is actually made by a local ice cream place called Serendipity). We really enjoyed the peanut butter banana scoop; it was very creamy. The other scoops, mint and blueberry sorbet, were also good. Our next visit was during brunch. We’d highly recommend Lemon Ricotta Pancakes! The pancakes were incredibly moist! And the lemon blueberry custard was AMAZING! We’ll definitely stop back at Oceano Bistro the next time that we are in town!!!
