Food choices and preparation were again very good and menu is fairly priced. We all had seafood dishes and were pleased. They were ready for us when we arrived at our reservation time. No wait and booth and table choice,

It is difficult to be critical of server who appears to try hard, but this is our second experience within a month with a specific member of wait staff who still doesn’t understand the professional behavior expected in the job. Wonder if management is paying attention. We would not accept working with the same person a third time.

Absolutely amazing brunch menu. Please do yourself a favor and get the Kobe beef burger. I've yet to find another place that does it as well as these guys in Saint Louis. I just know that I would be exclusively choosing their burger every time I come. I have tried other items, i.e. crab cake benedict, farmhouse steak and eggs, but nothing touches the burger. Trust me on this.

Oceano Bistro is an excellent choice. It provided excellent service and the food was prepared outstandingly. One guest had a special food need and the owner made sure that this need was fulfilled. I recommend it highly for any type of meal that you are interested in.

I was impressed with Oceano's ability to place a positive spin on an otherwise bad situation. Many, many thanks to Rob who understands the value of making and retaining a customer...literally transforming our evening into a pleasant experience...good service is a mandate for good business...Thanks Robert!

The restaurant was apparently short staffed for the day the manager was the bartender it appeared that they needed cook or chef wait times were extensive nobody knew if we could order off the regular menu orders were screwed up and the food was less than standard. It was truly the worst experience that we have had in a restaurant in many many years. Not something you would expect not something that you would expect out of a restaurant in Clayton Missouri! And by the way we drove an hour and 10 minutes to this restaurant haing heard that it was a good restaurant. We
Will inform others said it was not.

The place was very full and very noisy mostly due to a loud table near us. Staff stopped at that table often and were loud as well. Food was lacking in flavor- we got cappelini and a fish dish. Neither were interesting or unique.

Our first visit back! It was great to see everyone again. The ice cold martinis were fabulous and our dinners were delicious. Our dessert was your cheese cake! Loved it! We were celebrating our anniversary- what better place than Oceano! Thank you for making it so special.

Four of went for Sunday brunch. One member of our party is slightly incapacitated. The hostess graciously gave an ideal table to accommodate us. We all ordered different items. But all four of us thoroughly enjoyed our meals, plus the complimentary huge cinnamon roll the sent out after we were seated. We each had a quarter which was plenty.

I’ve dined at Oceano numerous times for brunch, lunch, happy hour and dinner. I’ve been impressed by each visit. I grew up in the restaurant business and worked in for 40 years. It’s difficult to get so many things right so often. But Oceana does. Always excellent! Always memorable. The owner is almost always there—and it shows.

Our food was outstanding. Not only great flavor but very healthy options as well. Service was terrific and the manager even stopped by to check--just because. I really like when management works the room just to check on the diners--it says they care!

My 2nd time at Oceano and I treated my friend for her birthday. It was as good as I remembered. They had Covid-19 protocols in place for the staff and we felt quite comfortable. Our server was Ashely and she was great very personable. I'll be back and would highly recommend. We had appetizers and 2 different entree's and everything was great. Highly recommend for any special occasion.

It was my mom's 74th birthday, my sisters and I wanted to take her someplace she's never been before. I am OVER THE MOON happy that we chose Oceano Bistro. The atmosphere was really nice, 5 star in my opinion, beautiful ambiance, the food was incredible(will be returning with our husbands) and the service was phenomenal, the server treated us like royalty and gave us a lot of good suggestions for our lunch and for when we return for dinner, one day really soon. Oceano Bistro made our experience something we will never forget. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts!!!
