Description: This is the story of the Panteleakis family and their dedication to what they know best - what they share most - what they love. Ask anyone who has been here.They will tell you about the home made bread, rolled and baked by the hands of Peter, the owner. The same man who you'll see in the kitchen prepping and cooking alongside the kitchen staff and then soon after mingling among the guests making sure each client is not merely satisfied but ecstatic with his/her dining experience. They'll also describe the son Nikos who would be behind the bar serving signature cocktails, as much as he'd be seen in the kitchen working as line manager inspecting each plate or even on the floor serving the hot plates to their tables. Some will speak of the wife /mother behind the scenes, taking care of the operations while tending to all the details for the private events reservations. As anyone who's been here will tell you, Oceanos is all about family, because at Oceanos you are 'family'.

Accommodating chef. I thoroughly enjoyed a pan-seared grouper entree (a special; not on the printed menu) with the most delicious lemon potatoes and perfect steamed asparagus; neither of these sides was the ones the waiter offered with the special, but that's what I requested and they accommodated.

Our waiter was Ali, who provided perfect service.

For dessert, we shared two desserts. I loved the apple truffle and would order it again. It is homemade apple pie filling inside a phyllo dough crust served with vanilla ice cream. The baklava dessert I did not care for; it is very sweet but mostly chunky nuts and heavy on the cloves. Both desserts were huge portions; the entree was not.

The decor is lovely. I can't wait to return and try other things.

Nice ambience, bordering on clubby. Nice waitstaff. Tables set nicely with quality glassware and tablecloth. Appetizers of zucchini & eggplant chips with tzatziki sauce was cooked properly and well drained and bountiful. All portions are very big and easily can be shared by two. Octopus salad was a bit salty. Calamari grilled was unremarkable. Bronzino and swordfish were excellent! I always order baklava in Greek restaurants, but this one had way too many cloves that overpowered the dessert. Pricey.

A beautiful restaurant; quiet enough to be able to carry on an easy conversation. High quality seafood; huge portions. Very reasonable price for what you received.

Thanks

The food here was really good. We had the octopus app and it was very fresh! I had a surf and turf with tiger shrimps and lamb chops.....to die for! Don't mind going back!

We just came back from a wonderful evening at Oceanos. We had reservations for our anniversary and were sat down right away. Our waitress Cristina was Great! She gave us time to look at the wine menu and made us feel comfortable. There was no rush! The food was delicious and good sized portions. Cristina heard it was our anniversary and helped make it very special. She was very attentive and made sure there was nothing we wanted. I would definitely go there again. Thank you Cristina!
