    Great wine selection. Greek salad huge and delicious.We had swordfish and salmon which were as good as any other high end restaurant. Service was impeccable. Water glasses always refilled. Nice atmosphere. Very welcoming and accommodating host. Baklava a bit too sweet for me but the cappuccino was a 10+. We'll definitely be back.

    We enjoyed our dinner at Oceanos. Been wanting to eat there since reading a very good review in the local paper. However, it did not quite live up to our expectations. The service was great. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was great. The food was good, not great. We had the zucchini & eggplant chips for appetizer, then steak, octopus, & swordfish for dinner. Batter was a bit heavy on the chips and they were so large that the centers got soggy. Swordfish was tasty, but not outstanding. Steak cut like butter, but the sides & sauce were not appealing. Octopus was a bit chewy, not delicate. The bread was OUTSTANDING!!!

    I had a great meal and the service was GREAT. I mean it was really fantastic. The only thing is that it is terribly expensive. I had a surf and turf dinner and it cost $72.00. The only other thing is, and this is being picky, it was very loud and the seating was very close. Too close to where people started bumping into each other as they were seated. I am certain I can find just as good a meal someplace else for a whole lot less.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our meal & drinks. It was our 1st time & wanted to dine outside but the host stated the weather was unsure. It was a beautiful night to be outside. The weather passed. It was a pricey dinner for 4. My husband said it is a nice place for special occasions. I wish we could attend often but the prices need to be a little more affordable. Our servers were on top of their game. Dessert was absolutely incredible. Great drinks & wine list. Our son enjoyed his 26th Birthday dinner. Thanks!

    It was our first time at Oceanos for my husband's birthday. For us, it's a special occasion-type restaurant because of the price factor. I was impressed that having made the reservation using Open Table, where I indicated it was my husband's birthday, they served a little dessert with a candle with our coffee--nice. The food was heavenly but because they had a large party in the other room, we had to wait a VERY long time for our entre. They shoukd have put on more staff to avoid that. Despite that, we would go back if another special occasion arises.

    The outside of the restaurant is not as well maintained as the interior which is very elegant, seating, menus and cocktails all good. I asked if the waitress knew if the Alaskan King Crab Legs on the menu were of the RED Species, this is not a question re: the color of the legs but rather a specific species of King crab, the most desired and most costly , since the menu price was $54.00 I thought they could be and the waitress was told by the kitchen that they were red king crab, but they weren't, so either they intentionally deceived us or have no idea what red king crab is, either one, NG, I ordered sauted soft shell crabs, but they were smothered in butter, mind you I love butter, but this was just way too much spoiled the dish.

    I came with with my family for a birthday dinner and it was excellent. We sat outside in the patio and enjoyed soft music and the sound of their outdoor waterfall and pond. It was so relaxing. We had a 4 hour feast! We ate 4 Oceanos Samplers which where so good, and then jumped into octopus, Greek Salad, grilled calamari, and a whole bunch of other appetizers which were awesome. I had the surf and turf which was gigantic and the lobster tail was amazing, so sweet. My brothers both had the rib-eye steaks, and my wife had the Fagri which was topped with crabmeat. Obviously, we had to wash all this good stuff with some great wine, Farniente Cabernet. Then they treated us to birthday dessert and we rolled out. Thank you Oceanos!!!!

    My husband took me here for my birthday because I love seafood. When asked if we wanted to sit inside or out, I said inside because it is on a street where I thought the environment would be unattractive. But as we went to a table indoors, I looked out the window and immediately changed my mind! They have created the cutest little al fresco dining space. It is closed off from the street and very comfortable. The service throughout was superb. The food was soooo good. I ordered the scallops and they were done perfectly. The only reason I only gave four stars overall was in case you have a spouse like mine who expects leftover-sized portions. You might get a grumble or two, even though I would call the portions perfectly normal. : )

    From top to bottom, first class. Good service, great food and comfortable ambiance. We shared oysters Rockefeller appetizer, classic Greek salad, which was served slightly chilled which brought out the freshness of the organic greens and herbs. My wife had swordfish and I had Chillean sea bass, both were light and delicate, cooked to perfection and served with fresh and crisp vegetables. Roasted potato for her, rice pilaf for me (rich and creamy). Dessert was EKMEK, toasted coconut and custard specialty of the house, delicious. Great place for a special occasion, prices were a bit higher then usual, but at the end of this meal, I was happy to have visited this fine restaurant, and will be back.

Busy or slow, early or late, each time the service has been gracious and professional, and this last visit was no exception. Everywhere we've been seated, inside and out has been comfortable and felt like a "good table." The food has always been great. Great selections, everything cooked and presented very well, delicious and filling... With great wine to match... I have never left without feeling like I just made the right choice.

    The service is outstanding, only to be outdone by the food itself. Have been there a few times, with family, friends and even on a date. Each time the food was wonderful, it can be a bit pricey, and that's why I suggest it for special occasions, because you do feel special while you are there. The service knows how to keep their customers happy, water glasses filled, dishes removed promptly, and they don't interrupt the conversation, you don't realize they have even been by, but if you need something, they are right there for you. Food, well go hungry, enjoy the appetizers, and the meal, but leave room for the desserts. This last visit, we had lobster, scallops & salmon, after sharing a zucchini & eggplant chips. Wonderful experience!

    We decided to try Oceanos after eating many times at their sister restaurant Taverna Mykonos. What a disappointment. The appetizers were ok. The main dishes took awhile to get to us but we understood that the restaurant was busy. Three of the four of us ordered specials. The Copper River Sockeye Salmon was so dried out, I couldn't even eat it. For $39 for an entree I expect a seafood restaurant to serve perfectly cooked fish. The 2 other people who had specials, felt the same way. This place is way too expensive for mediocre food. We won't be going back.

Sat at a table for 30 minutes before getting menu's, went 45 minutes without getting asked if I wanted a drink, 2 hours before main courses came out. Food was good but the terrible service ruined the night. For 30-50$ entrees' there are many better places in the area to enjoy with impeccable service and more to offer.

    Oceanos has been a destination restaurant for me for years, and my most recent visit proved that it just keeps getting better. Impeccable service, friendly and warm without being overbearing, combined with outstanding seafood makes this spot worth every dollar. The martini list is fun, not too focused on snobbery, and a great way to start before sitting down to dinner. Outstanding dishes include the octopus appetizer (tender, flavorful, perfectly cooked) and the seafood linguine. That linguine platter is MASSIVE and that adjective applies to the expertly cooked seafood components (mussels, giant diver scallops, tender shrimp, toothsome clams) and the flavor imparted in the al dente pasta, coated in a tomato-based sauce.
