We were welcomed warmly by Chris who offered us the option of immediate seating at our reservation time or waiting briefly for a more secluded table. Our wait staff were all very timely, knowledgeable and super friendly (a different Chris and two others who I regrettably did not get their names). The food was absolutely delicious! Our expectations were exceeded in every way!

We made a late reservation for Valentine's Day. The service was attentive and the food was delicious. We especially liked the maple glazed salmon and the carrot cake which was plenty to share for a sweet desert. This was our first visit and we weren't disappointed. The manager and staff were very helpful as we considered various menu choices.

As always, a fabulous dinner to celebrate Valentine's Day. Even though the restaurant was at capacity, the service was impeccable and our meal was timed perfectly. The menu was excellent, and the meal was prepared with love.... a truly enjoyable experience.

We dined this evening at L' Oceano for the first time. We chose L'Oceano Ristorante based on the excellent reviews it has received, and because it was local. What a great choice we made!! The food was spectacular. Had the Buffalo Scallops and the Brussel Sprouts stuffed with crab as appetizers, and the Pompano with a Mediterranean sauce, and a seafood pot pie as out entrees. All highly recommended. Topped it off with an amaretto ice cream. We also had the Mac and Cheese with lobster. Huge pieces of lobster. You must try it!!
What we were impressed with even more than the food was how welcome we were made to feel. Chris is a fantastic host. He stopped by a few times to check on us. More importantly he spoke to us as old friends, and not first time customers. There are many good restaurants, with nice people and good food, but L'Oceano Ristorante is genuine. We felt at home from the minute we arrived.
Do yourself a favor and make the time to visit. You will not be disappointed. We plan on returning often.

You cannot go wrong with going to L'Oceano. It is our favorite restaurant in Collingswood. Never have we had a bad meal - food is ALWAYS fantastic! All the servers are super friendly and the owner Chris is the BEST - you have to experience the energy he brings to L'Oceano.
Can't wait to go back in March!

The service was impeccable. The mess were described with perfection and the meals delivered. The tasting menu is fantastic and allowed us to really try a lot that this little gem of a restaurant had to offer. was our first time, but definitely not our last.

I frequent a number of restaurants in Collingswood but had never dined here before. The food was delicious. I ordered the cedar plank salmon. The crust on top was amazing. The staff was attentive and made you feel at home. We finished off our meal with a gracious slice of carrot cake. It was perfect, not too sweet and tasted homemade. I will definitely bring family and friends here.

Terri and I were celebrating our anniversary and we couldn't have picked a better place. Chris welcomed us at the door and never stopped welcoming us. We enjoyed the tasting menu and weren't disappointed. We'll be back.

Once again a fantastic meal and exceptional service. Staff is friendly, personable & on top of everything. Their dining suggestions are right on target. I always try & introduce a different friend to an outstanding dining experience & have never failed to share with them a great time & wonderful meal. Have convinced many exclusive "meat eaters" to try seafood with success & their enjoyment. Will be back again, for sure!

Never disappoints. We eat here frequently, and have tried most menu items. This night we had the whole fish with Mediterranean sauce. The fish was delicate and the sauce deliciously tangy, but not overpowering. Had the tiramisu - one of the best I've ever had. Service is always excellent, even on busy nights. Servers were courteous and attentive on this night as well. We will return soon.

This was our second time here. The previous visit was about 6 months ago. However, this will be our last.
POOR: Our server never came back to check on us after entree's were served. She also never came back to re-fill coffee. Sadly, we still gave her 20% which she did not deserve.
BELOW AVERAGE: Japanese Seafood Risotto. No taste and extremely small shrimp. Could not find any other "seafood".

Loved it here! My husband and I had a chance for time away for a nice dinner.this was our first time at L'Oceano. It was last minute, I had booked our reservation for 5 pm on Sunday and was quickly called and notified there was a private party and we could only be seated at 6. The hospitality alone here is amazing and will keep us coming back.
I had the four course dinner I have to say the gnocchi is to die for. And the Dover sole stuffed with crab. My husband had the veal stuffed with crab. We both loved our dinners.
We are so excited to go back. Thank you Chris for an amazing dinner!

This is the second time we choose L'Oceano Ristorante for our New Year's dinner. We were joined by brother and wife. We were greeted & immediately seated. Our host apologized for not being able to seat us away from the door (I requested this on Open Table), but it worked out for the best in hindsight. The coolness of the occasionally opened front door was refreshing. The hosts asked if we were newcomers to the restaurant or returning folks (we were one of each) and proceeded to explain, in detail, the evening's (delicious )specials. All yummy... I wish I could eat more, but I choose the full lobster (filleted). In fact, we had each chose a different course item. None were disappointed. As it is a BYOB, we brought several bottles of wine to supplement our dinner. The desserts were ex.cel.lent!
There was no rush for us to leave even when more patrons, with later reservations, appeared, but did not have to wait long for seating. This is a definite reservations (HIGHLY recommended)eatery. Would love to go here again. Kudos to everyone.

ate there last night with my wife and as always we had a great meal. For appetizers we had the Gnocci which were cooked perfectly. We also had Razor Clams in a Mango broth...wow...they were awesome too. Entrees were equally as impressive (Stuffed Veal w/Risotto and Japanese Seafood Risotto). The owner Chris knows how to run a restaurant. He is a genuine host who really wants your experience to be the best possible. He is very hands on which is missing in a lot of restaurants today. By far my favorite restaurant in Collingswood.
