Oceano Bistro - Clayton Ratings and Reviews
We were very pleasantly surprised with our latest visit. We have dined here before and we were not impressed. We thought that we would give it one more try. The server was phenomenal. He knew the menu well and he made it a very comfortable dining visit. We started with a special clam appetizer that was to die for. I want more!! The clams were cooked perfectly with the most delicious lemon garlic sauce with turkey chorizo, tomato and crustinis. I also had the truffle scallops, cooked to perfection. My husband had the shrimp scampi pasta. He loved it and it looked so good, I will be trying it next time. I am so glad we tried it again, we will definitely be returning.
This was our first time at this restaurant. We were very pleased. The crab cake appetizer was bountiful and delicious. The bread and dipping sauce was very good and replenished. We split the prawn fettuccini and the server kindly brought spit plates without being asked. It was very good and plenty for two. Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We will definitely go here again when in St. Louis.
We arrived on time for our OpenTable reservation at Oceano Bistro and were seated 30 minutes later without exaggeration. Famished, we ordered right away and our food was ready very quickly. So quickly that the food came out before we were given silverware or napkins. Upon getting said silverware, and later the napkins, the food did not meet expectations. I had the truffle oil scallops and would never order them again. The dish lacked basic salt and pepper and was overwhelmed by the truffle oil. The flavor of the scallops was completely masked. I ordered a side of portobello mushrooms to compensate for my dislike of the scallops, and when the waitress brought them to the table she looked at my half-eaten dish of scallops and said emphatically "that is the BEST thing on the menu - those and the fennel dusted scallops - they're amazing!" Well, if that is the best they serve I certainly don't want to try anything else. We couldn't have gotten out of there any faster - we ordered, ate, paid, and left within 45 minutes of being seated. .. almost as much as our wait to get in.
Disclaimer: There was a large party for a high school's 50th reunion in the restaurant that night, so I understand that things will be backed up and mistakes will be made. I am a reasonable person and was ready to give the benefit of the doubt. However, I don't think that is an excuse for how bad those scallops were or how a reservation can be delayed by an entire half-hour when our dining time was all of 45 minutes. We won't be going back.
We were celebrating our anniversary and my birthday. It was our first time there and the staff service was excellent and the food was amazing. I would have preferred a more quiet romantic setting because it was a bit louder than I wanting for our occasion and it seemed that the food quality and atmosphere didn't match. But overall I would recommend to others just not if they want quiet and romantic do I give them a 4 star.
We felt very welcome, from the hostess, to the waiter, to the chef, to the manager. Everyone stopped at our table to be sure we were pleased. The ladies had each had a birthday in the past week. The two chocolate souffles were an unexpected and delicious extra.
We love this place! Been many times and never a bad dish. The service is great and the menu offers a nice variety. The shellfish sofrito is our favorite. Also love the bacon wrapped potato cake as a side dish. The bread pudding for dessert is wonderful! We will go definitely go back.
My wife and I are very big food junkies. We try a new restaurant every Wednesday for our date nights.
The service was ok. But for the price, we were not impressed with the variety or the taste of your food.
I'm really sorry, but we just can not reccommend your restaurant at this time.
Hope this helps.
Yet another open house, prompting yet another Sunday brunch. Place was pretty empty at 1:15. My wife had a mimosa and I a Bloody Mary. Both were great. She had the egg/avocado breakfast sandwich on sourdough rather than whole wheat; actually a perfect combination. My crab cake Benedict was pretty good, albeit a tad fishy. The poached eggs were perfect and the hollandaise more than just good. Overall, a pleasant experience.
My boyfriend took me here for my Birthday and I was truly impressed. I ordered the Swordfish which was a special that evening. It was PERFECT in every way. My boy friend for the Seabass which is a regular menu item and he was just as impressed. The service was just as good as the food. An all-around wonderful experience and I will be back!
The restaurant is great. However, Open Table was a problem. Online it said that there were no tables available until 6:45. I called, and they had plenty of room at 6:00. This is unfair to the restaurant and the customers. I hope Open Table will fix their online reservation service.
Everything was superior but there were a few touches that made it outstanding: the owner was on site overseeing everything, and visited with us and other guests; the locally grown tomatoes in the tomato salad were the best we had ever had; the dining room was quite unusual and cozy with its booths and vaulted ceiling.
It was my husbands birthday and I called the restaurant ahead of time to make reservations for a special dessert to be brought to our table. That never happened. In addition to that the first three things we ordered off of the menu they ran out of. The waiter didn't know at the time so had to go back and forth from the kitchen to our table to tell us our options weren't available. After those three times that's when he decided to tell us the specials for the day. Overall the food was good besides the Kobe sliders, those were incredibly dry. The waiter asked us if we would like a refill on our kids apple juices. I guess it was my fault I should've asked if they were free - but regardless I think the markup is insane. $4.00 for an 8oz kids juice. That is unheard of from any restaurant I've been to. Overall it was an undesirable experience and we will not be dining at this restaurant again. I was hoping it would become a staple since we just moved to this city from out of state a few weeks ago, but that is definitely not going to happen.
There were five of us dining at the time. We took people from out of town and did so because we could rely on your food and service. Food preparation and attention to detail were outstanding. I particularly liked how knowledgeable Amos was about the food giving us very informative details about the food. The service and timing of the evening was wonderful.
