“Best evening meal on the Island”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

From the moment we walked in we were treated well. Luckly for us we were able to get a table without reservations, I'm guessing a week from now that would not happen. The signature cocktail was wonderful, and the beet salad was incredible. The Lobster was done perfectly and spiced just right. The sides of mashed potatos and grilled aparagus was tender and flavorful. My husband's shrimp was tender and delicious and we fell in love with the faro side. Dessert topped it all off perfectly. The ocean view was pleasant and soothing. Such a great experience.

“Beautiful sunsets and excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

We went before sunset and it was beautiful and relaxing. The dinner was wonderful, the filet was like butter! Salad was delicious, conch fritters were yummy and the chocolate mousse like dessert was a perfect ending to a great meal.

“Gorgeous Setting, Practiced Cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Pat LaCourt has been cooking on St. T for decades, and I've eaten at most of her restaurants. Always a bit pricey, but never misses the mark. Oceana is the place for special occasions, date night, or simply a fine meal composed by a chef who could make her mark anywhere.

“Philadelphia Love”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Family night felt like an event after dinner at Oceanas. The service from a young man, whose name i cant recall, was wonderful. He remembered the details and the routine of paying just enough attention to the child, fully engaging in sports talk with the husband and flattering with the perfect amount of attention for the wife.
The food was really tasty. The ribeye, tender and delicious. The dessert, picture attached, was just the right amount of everything good. The sound of the ocean added the perfect melody.
We will be back for more and more and more. I have added Oceanas to my list of places i go for happy hour as well.

“Great view, great food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

I've been to STT four times now and this place was recommended by our friends who live there. It was really exellent in all respects and with a relaxed unfussy atmosphere. Definitely the best fine dining I've had on the island.
