    We totally enjoyed our experience, we took our daughter out to lunch for her birthday. Each entree was presented beautifully and quite tasty. The dessert was a sponge cake berry delight with lemon sauce...My husband said, " BEST DESERT EVER." Jen, our server was very nice and made us feel special.....

    The food was good but they could have used more options. A dessert bar would have mad a difference. They had a tray of cookies on the bar, that's it for dessert.

    My boyfriend and I went to Oceano for dinner and had a wonderful time. We were a little dissapointed that they were all out of the rack of lamb, but we understood. I ordered the samon and he ordered the scallops. Both dishes were excellent. Service was a little slow, but they only had two servers because it was Easter weekend and many servers had asked of, but our server still did a great job. Overall, we had a great experience!

    Thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant. We both had the caesar salad and the dressing had a surprise kick to it with the grey poupon mustard. The Grilled Atlantic Salmon was done perfectly. The sides were different from what was on the web site menu which was fine because the fried potatoes and green beans were a better compliment to the dish. My husband had the scallops which he really enjoyed especially with the portabello mushroom. We would definitely go back again and recommend it to our friends.

    Good food. Vodka with a splash of Cranberry was severed in very small on the rocks glass at 7 bucks it should of been bigger. Mussels were presented well but not tasty or succulent. Tuna was good, cooked to med rare but still dry. This place is good place, but not great. I guess living on the Midwest has it down side when it comes to seafood.

    I live in the neighborhood but usually default to the (farther away) Edgewild because the menu is more interesting and the vibe is always energetic. Historically, my concern with both Oceano locations was the static (read: unexciting) menu. Always very good, but not over-the-top wonderful you would expect given the prices. In our last 2 visits to Oceano in Chesterfield (last-minute, no tables available at Edge), we have been pleasantly surprised. I read recently that management changes and an eventual name change are in the works, but there is already change afoot on the menu. Broader variety and a more lively vibe have us reconsidering. The revamped Sea Bass dish was outstanding.

    My wife and I chose Oceano for an anniversary dinner celebration. We wanted to go somewhere a little nicer and we weren't disappointed. The food was wonderful and the bottle of wine was also very nice. We don't normally order a bottle of wine but the server suggested it and it was a perfect idea. We had a nice time and had no complaints about the service or the food. We can see returning for dinner sometime soon.

    We had high hopes for this restaurant, but left very disappointed. The chef came out and talked to some friends at the table next to us for a long time. Their conversation was so loud that we had a hard time hearing each other. The starters, smoked trout and tuna tartar were ambitious, but the trout was overcooked and dry. The tartar was unique, but served with stale tortilla chips. The main courses were good, but not great. The hot rolls served with were the best part, but it would have been nice to have some butter. The desserts were disappoining too. The peanut butter bomb was a strange mess and we couldn't decide if it was supposed to be ice cream, mousse or just a scoop of Peter Pan. The Kuluah cake was thick and dry.

    Sorry, not the overall experience I was looking for. First, we were seated next to a door that lead to outside - drafty and noisy when banged closed. Since the dinning room was half empty we moved ourselves to another table in that same room. Then sent my field greens salad back because I forgot to have them hold the blue cheese. My fault, my server did not mind at all taking the salad back but then she returned with a bowl of iceburg lettuce. It seemed to be tossed with the dressing and the cruncy topping all mixed in. Not the presentation or quality of the first salad. My entre, the sea bass was very good! But two screamming children seated at the next table had most of the dinners in that room annoyed.

    We both ordered fish dishes and both of them were prepared perfectly. The Ahi Tuna with Wasabi Mashed Potatoes was out of this world and the Atlantic Salmon was also terrific. The service was impeccable...

    This was the best weather we'd had for a long time, so Oceano Chesterfield was our pick based on their beautiful 'backyard' seating. There's a little waterfall, and just a really nice and peaceful green setting... The food was good, service very good, outside seating great (although they could use another umbrella or two, to keep the sun from beating down on some of the tables that are out in the open). Very nice experience.

    I thought the food was not bad, but it wasn't at the caliber of St. Louis' s other fine dining even though the price was on par. Our whole dining "experience" cost $100 and took 45 minutes, so I just felt it wasn't worth it.

  • Freezing cold no attention detail
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    We were sat on a patio for valentines day with a plastic screen around it that had a hole in it and the heater wasn't strong enough. I are with a coat on the entire time. We had to ask for bread, rarely had water refills, were given no steak knife for my rack of lamb that was over cooked. The entire time we were freezing cold. The ambience was terrible where we sat. Our table was an outdoor mesh table with a table cloth over it. My girlfriends fish was overlooked. We were just too polite to say anything at dinner. The rose they have us was nice though. It was valentines day and we both wished we skipped dinner. I've never wrote a review complaining nor do I complain at a restaurant but it was really a bad experience.

    The food was excellent in both taste and presentation. We had steak and scallops. Both were prepared as requested and the sauces were very flavorful. Our server, Joshua, was fantastic. He was attentive, friendly and knowledgable. The pacing of the courses was a bit slow as there was quite a delay for the entrees. We heartily recommend the restaurant for a fine meal.

    My wife and I went to Oceano Bistro for Valentine's Day. We found the service to be exceptional and the food was fantastic. I would encourage anyone trying the place out to get the 20oz. prime rib; it quite literally melts in your mouth. The outdoor porch comes complete with waterfall. Years ago when this place was called something else I actually performed a wedding on the porch and it was perfect for such an occasion and still appears to be. Great food, great ambience.

  • Too expensive for average quality
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    Being Valentine's Day I expected larger crowds and tighter seating but I sat in a doorway leaving me little leg room. The waitress was good and talkative at first but then avoided us for about 10 minutes at which time my glass was empty. The food came and was served without the sides which I had to ask for. I expect for a $35 entree the meat to be choice. It was fatty, tough and not seasoned. There wasn't even salt and pepper at the table. Then the sides came. The potato cake tasted so much like oil it was unedible and it made my clothes stink. The vegetables were near raw and again not seasoned. This really was a bland overpriced meal.

    Every visit is always a wonderful experience. I have taken groups here and the staff is more than happy to provide for our needs. From large groups, to a few friends or even when I dine alone, the staff has always made me feel like I was the most important person in their establishment. Not many resturants pay that kind of attention to detail of service. I will be a returning patron!
