    We had a wonderful dinner at Oceano! There were 6 of us in our party, and everyone was very well attended to. The view was AMAZING (though I'd recommend getting there before dark to really enjoy the ocean views!). The foods were fresh and worked for a mixed palate of needs (we had a "pescatarian" who only ate fish...great options for vegetarians as well!). Service was good - though our waiter was really slammed, he was still very friendly. The restaurant even called us a cab when we were ready to go, so our departure was extremely smooth! Owner stopped by the table and chatted for a few minutes - very nice touch. Oh - and the desserts were AWESOME!

    I went to Puerto Rico to celebrate my birthday and stumbled upon Oceano by mistake. I must say it is the best mistake I've ever made....We had drinks at the bar while we waited for our table, 1800 Que w/ rum and the Blue Fire were delish.....Unfortunately, they were out of Snapper so we had the Churrasco and the Scallops, delish...For dessert, I was served the Cheesecake and something that resembled a Chocolate Hazelnut Flan with a sparkler on top and of course, like with everything else, delish...If I could, I would give 10 stars. Oh and btw the manager Mary and the Chef Cory were AWESOME!!!!! I can't wait to go back!

    Deck seating overlooking the beach, cool blue mood lighting, intoxicating music. Awesome view. Ordered a nice bottle of wine from out waiter, who never introduced himself, and acted like he wanted to be far far away from there. Aloof, disinterested, our waiter really dampened our experience. My wife absolutely loved her Charrasco steak with the mojito chimichurri sauce. My mofongo had 3 large shrimp on top, but nothing stuffed inside. Without any sauce, it was dry. It looked good though. We ordered the quattro leches cake, but the waiter told us they were out of it. We read other reviews that echo the "we are out if that" theme.

    Some of the food was great and some wasn't. The sweet corn soup and roasted pineapple salad were excellent. The apricot chicken was good, very sweet and a large portion. The shrimp in the entree were huge but not cooked enough and bland. Service was very good. Craig was very knowledgeable and helpful.

    Wonderful gem on the beach front. Dined with a friend but this restaurant would be perfect for a romantic dinner. In fact, a couple got engaged while we were there. Staff was very attentive without smothering us. I had the red snapper entree and it was fabulous. Was on a bed of root vegetables that were to die for. My friend the skirt steak which was great as well. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go back. Can't beat the ambiance of being beachfront either!

    We had a reservation but were seated upstairs. Not outside as asked and it was noisy. We ordered the scallops which were not that special and quite pricey. We asked for water and were charged for Evian water. We did not know it was Evian water because it did not have the label on the bottle anyway. We asked not to pay for it and they took it off the bill. It was $7 for a small bottle. Our waiter was nice but the overall experience was not as good as expected from reading the reviews.

    The appetizer was good but my steak lacked flavor. The side dish was delicious, though. It is very expensive, which I knew beforehand, and I feel like the food just didn't live up to the expense. The atmosphere was nice, but dark.

    We loved our dinner at Oceano. We were well taken care of from the moment we entered the restaurant. Our waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and how the food was prepared and make some excellent recommendations. The ceviche and the pineapple salad were superb! We both had the pork for our entree and it was a wonderful blend of flavors cooked to perfection. We will definitely be going back to Oceano on our next trip to Puerto Rico!

    The place has an outstanding view with excellent seafood. I had the scallops and was very surprised how well they were cooked. I would recommend to a friend. However I was there to celebrate but found it was not as romantic as I would have hoped for. The noise level was so loud it was hard to hear myself think. Other than that I would go back but you need to realize you are paying a premium for the view. The service was outstanding. Our server fidal was probably the best server ive encountered while in Puerto Rico. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves seafood.

    Craig who served us was very friendly and helpful with his knowledge of the menu and wines. Only complaint would be that the place was a bit loud. Food was terrific, everyone in our group enjoyed their meals. And they sent out 2 deserts for our birthday girls, which was very generous. Wish we had gone during daylight to fully enjoy the view, would recommend planning for slightly before sunset to fully enjoy everything this restaurant has to offer.

    A group of us went for my husband's birthday. The service was OK, but the server kept reaching over us refilling water, which was very rude to me. Some of the drinks were poorly made and the attempts to make better ones were failed. The food was phenomenal, especially the pork Anna octopus salad.

    The food was good, atmosphere was similar to Miami/South Beach. Juan our waiter was fabulous - friendly and attentive. This was our first time in Puerto Rico and since we had heard so much about Oceano we made reservations almost 2 months before our vacation. Unfortunately, when we got there they would not give us a table outside overlooking the ocean, which was the entire reason for us going there. We were given a table upstairs (inside) and the hostess said we would have a fabulous view. Since it was dark and we were sitting in the middle of the room there was no view (I am sure it was very nice during the day). We had our dinner but were very disappointed about not being able to sit outside.

    Every time we are in San Juan, Oceano is on the must - do list! Server, Monica, was just fabulous! Met the manager, George, and told him how pleased we are with the consistency of quality food and service. Can't go wrong with anything you order here, but the tostones, grilled mahi mahi, grilled grilled breast, and chick wrap were amazing! So much food...couldn't eat it all. Don't miss this gem in Condado!

    From the moment we walked into Oceano we were treated like family. They asked if we had any allergies or were celebrating a special occasion. We were there on our honeymoon and every staff member we can't across seemed genuinely happy that we were celebrating with them. Our waiter was friendly and funny but also incredibly prompt and courteous. The manager stopped by or table to check to be sure everything was wonderful (which, of course, it was) but even she went above and beyond by offering to take our picture on the patio in front of the full moon and ocean. The food was phenomenal! I had the pork and my husband had the snapper. Delicious. My pork was so tender it just fell apart when I cut into it. Seriously, perfect night.

    The food tasted great and the service was great, but the prices were too high for the amount of food you get. Also our drinks (Oceano blue) were very watered down. Don't go there with a big appetite and expect to pay a lot for very little.

    Went to Oceano to celebrate my 21st birthday and the food and atmosphere did not disappoint! The staff was very friendly and engaged. We were seated on the upper level which had an amazing view overlooking the ocean. The appetizers were really tasty, I would recommend the churrasco egg rolls and the beef dumplings! It's a popular spot but not too noisy so you can fully enjoy a conversation without feeling like you have to yell.
