The food wasn’t great. The fried foods (calamari and kids fish) were incredibly greasy. My salmon was overcooked. Overall, it was neither a bad meal nor a good meal, but definitely not worth the cost.
Wonderful crabcakes and Sherry butter! Great service too.
I have been to Oceanos for lunch and dinner. The food is always good. Our server was nice but I think she was new. I was accustomed to a little more checking for water, etc. We forgot to ask for separate checks and she made the assumption that our payment was on one ticket. No worries...little details come with experience.
The food and the service is always top notch here. Any slight hiccup, and I mean any, and the manager is there to make sure you are satisfied.
Great service & delicious food! Really enjoyed it.
Service was outstanding- thanks, Ed! Scallops very good. Trout was not great however (not overcooked, but no flavor). Portions very generous!
Delicious food and great service
The server was excellent for our group of eight. Food and drinks were excellent as well. Our table set up was very good for our group and we had no trouble with noise, which rarely happens. During the afternoon, I had brought two desserts and candles for the two birthdays. The restaurant was able to store them both in the fridge and brought them out with candles blazing at the right time without any prompting on my part. The server cheerfully divided the bill. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
We sat next to a very boisterous table. Very annoying, very loud. Put a damper on the evening.
Our waiter was great!
Food is excellent. We had sea bass and tuna. Beautiful presentation.
Owner comes by the table to check on customers. Very nice
Food was delicious and our server, Ed, outstanding. Manager talked to us at length. Overall, a ver pleasant experience.
Waiter was fabulous. The special tomato salad was excellent as was the trout.
As always, the food and service was outstanding! Robert is a very gracious host, and leaves you feeling great. Can't wait to bring more friends here!
Everything we had was excellent. Awesome crab cakes (3) appetizer. Great wine selection. We had a Rose. The sea bass was creamy and fanastic and the nightly special (some sort of white fish that started with an "n") was delightful. We even had dessert. We waited the extra 15 minutes to have the fresh from the oven chocolate cookies with ice cream. Also, yummy. We were also fortunate to get a window seat on the patio, so we had a great view of Clayton.
Our small group of old friends routinely gathers at Oceano on the rare occasions we are all in town. They invariably provide wine-friendly, people-friendly service (we always bring our own), excellent food, and an atmosphere that is energetic while still allowing us to be heard as we talk across the table.
This visit, Oceano did not disappoint. The service was attentive without being pushy, and all of us enjoyed our food choices.
I look forward to my next visit to St. Louis and Oceano.
We went for a late dinner on Sunday night. It was quiet and wasn't crowded, which was relaxing. My husband had the Sunday fixed price 3 course meal. His chowder was okay but not memorable. We also shared the crab cake appetizer which had 3 cakes. It was very tasty and plenty for 2 people. He really enjoyed the Sea Bass entre on the 3 course meal
I loved the succulent extra large shrimp in the Scampi from the menu. They were sweet and cooked perfectly. Teramisu came with the 3 course meal and again, the generous portion was perfect for sharing although I liked it so much I wish I could have had it all to myself.
The seafood was wonderful. Chowder was bland. Caesar Salad was unique. Ate off the Three-Course menu for a great value. The waiter and manager were "know-it-alls" that talked AT us rather than TO us. We were celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and the occasion was never acknowledged.
Great graduation celebration! Food and service were both excellent
Very good food and atmosphere
We had a great time. Would go back
Had a great lunch ,The soup was good, crabcake sandwich was also good.Bread pudding was excellent. The service was excellent as always.
My friend and I enjoyed the food and the service
Food was generally good and prepared accurately. We had mostly seafood but ordered a good variety. The noise level was above average but the concierge did close off one of the dining doors to bring it down to an acceptable level. Our overall service was lacking. Water glasses not refilled and the duration of time between the time the order was placed until the food arrived was excessive. That held true for the drinks as well. The cost for a party of two should have warranted more attention. Not sure if we will return. We dine out 4 - 5 nights a week so I feel confident my review is fair
Everything was excellent. With a name like Oceano one expects good seafood, and Oceano of course excels at that, but perhaps surprising was the outstanding non seafood items as well. From salads and sides, to pork and lamb chops, everything was expertly prepared and delicious.
We went for Mother’s Day brunch, the food was good, but not worth 114.00 for 2 . We won’t be back next year? Small children we’re touching all of the small desserts down low, so we took something off the top. Our server was great.
Food was pretty good for a buffet but we were very surprised to find that on Mother's Day, only a brunch was available....and it would be hard to imagine a brunch worth the $45 price. This one might approach that, but next time we will wait for an opportunity to order off Ocean's terrific menu.
Always a great place to eat. The food is wonderful
Our server could not have been better! She made our overall dining experience wonderful, and enhanced every aspect of our visit. The food was excellent. I loved being seated in a large, high, comfy booth. It made our gathering and conversation more intimate. They recognized my note on the reservation regarding the special occasion we would be celebrating, and so my son was able to choose any dessert, on the house, he wanted for his birthday. His, as well our ours were delicious. Other items...hot, house-made bread rolls were served; we were able to find free, close-by parking which isn't always easy to do in Clayton; our "doggie" bags were attractively packaged and brought to us in a nice bag that wouldn't tip; the owner stopped by our table and was most gracious.
Our food was delicious and server Phillip was terrific!
We sat by the windows on a beautiful evening and had delicious meal.
Love this place! The minute you walk in you get greeted with a big smile.
The service is outstanding.
And the food is delicious and displayed beautifully on your plate.
Our experience at Oceano was delightful. From the personal attention from Robert the manager and his team to the wonderful food experience. The rainbow trout was perfect. Possibly the best prepared piece of fish I have eaten. Lightly seasoned and cooked to perfection. Another member of our party was a land lover so steak was in order. I was fortunate enough to sample a bite of the filet and it was a beautiful medium rare. On my next visit to St Louis Oceano will be a must see and do. Thanks for everything!
Exceptional variety on the menu. The seafood chowder was delicious and they don't cheat you on the seafood. Ordered the trout and it was fresh and cooked to perfection. I also ordered a bottle of pinot noir which they ran out so they gave me something a little better but charge me for lower price of the wine I originally ordered. Very nice courtesy.
The food at Oceano was excellent, and the service was efficient and friendly. I will definitely return there.
This was the most amazing dining experience! The food was plated beautifully! Definitely resembled works of art! The best part was how everything tasted!! BEST swordfish and crab cakes EVER!! Desserts were also an amazing delight!
The service was impeccable. Parking was slightly difficult but worth the frustration in order to enjoy the restaurant.
Another excellent meal. Hyponic Cherry Tomatoes with Basil, Arugula, Goat Cheese and Balsamic reduction was amazing.
