    We have been to Oceanos before and had a delicious meal. This time the food was again delicious, but our server was outstanding. We had some food allergies that we needed to address and he put our mind at ease. He was extremely understanding and just fantastic. I would highly recommend it to everyone!

    We have been going to Oceanos for years and have never been disappointed. We recently took our son and his wife and 2 children (13 and 11) there for Easter Sunday dinner at 4:00. Oceanos is known for it's wonderful fresh fish but our son isn't a big fan of fish so he had steak. We were all pleasantly surprised with the size and the tenderness and flavor. We have always eaten fish when we went there in the past but will be trying the steak in the future. As usual the entire staff is efficient, friendly and right there when you need anything. Our grandchildren said it's now their new "favorite" place and that says a lot coming from them as they can be picky.

    The quality of food was excellent. I ordered Greek salad which was very fresh. My client ordered clam chowder. I ordered the herbed salmon dish and my client ordered another seafood. They are also well prepared. The portion size is not large, but it was good that I did not have to take the left over home.

    cozy, warm and inviting atmosphere yet with a clean and crisp modern and new york ish. located minutes from route 4 w, but not out of the way. service was good, food was very good yet I thought the main meat/fish I thought was a little bit small. All of the food was flavored to perfection(not overloaded with salt; bravo) I will definitely go back ; very good indeed

    Four of us had dinner at Oceanos on Saturday night and walked out feeling very satisfied. The staff was extremely professional and welcoming. You could tell this was a place that had many regulars yet we were not treated differently. Our food was delicious. We tried the sea bass, seared tuna ( 2 people had this) and the filet mignon. There were no complaints. We tried the apple truffle and ekmek for dessert. The apple truffle came out warm and paired with the vanilla ice cream it was a winner. The ekmek was another good choice, smooth custard over delicate filo. The prices are on the high end especially for a neighborhood restaurant in Fair Lawn and not NYC but overall, you get you get what you pay for. We left there with no complaints.

    7 of us had girls' night dinner at Oceanos on a recent Saturday night. Our server was great--one friend has many food allergies, and he went out of his way to accommodate her and answer her many questions about the menu. Food was consistently good--appetizers were tasty and in reasonable portions for sharing, salads were fresh and generously sized, steaks were perfectly cooked (though the accompanying fries were bland and a bit soggy, though still tasty), fish was fresh, well-cooked and nicely presented. Some desserts (Vesuvius and apple crisp!) were excellent, others were ok, but just ok. Noise level was "energetic", but we expected that on a busy Saturday night. Overall, it was a great meal and will definitely be in our rotation.

    I have been coming to Oceano's for several years and I am never disappointed. This place is appropriate for intimate dinners as well as group dining. The owner is always there, service is very good and the food is consistently amazing. I came here on a Sunday night with a group of friends and it was another fantastic experience. Everything from the grilled octopus to the Chilean sea bass along with several desserts including Ekmek were all superb. Great restaurant for any occasion!

    My husband and I had a delicious dinner during our first visit to Oceanos! The crab cakes and snapper were fantastic, as were the oysters Rockefeller. Our absolute favorite dish was the appetizer special - tuna tartare over avocado. I had three delicious martinis, too - pear, chocolate, and the Oceanos Martini - loved each one more than the next! The desserts were only ok. We had tartufo, which was good as expected, and the tiramisu, which was a bit overwhelmed by a huge amount of thick whipped cream. Our server was very attentive and professional. We would definitely go back!

    The food is a little pricey but extremely good. The place was pretty crowded & we were seated quite close to the door. It was uncomfortable, so I asked if I could get my jacket back from the coatcheck. The other host immediately found us a better table, without a fuss. The staff is very friendly and accommodating (although our original waitress was much more attentive than the waiter we ended up with). I highly recommend this restaurant. Dress ranged from sneakers and jeans to suits.
