Service and food were amazing! Found this place on OpenTable and decided to try it. The fish was fresh and the place is clean. We will return

Entertained colleagues from
Entertained colleagues from out of town and chose Oceana Grill. It was a perfect setting to talk, as it was not loud, and the food was terrific. The staff was extremely friendly and John made us feel at home. Will deffinately be back.

A Surprise Easter Delight
The dining experience was wonderful. The Crab cakes were fabulous as well as the grilled octopus. The special consisting of a sea bass filet accompanied by 2 huge shrimp in a spicy sauce was exceptional. However, the size of the filet was very small for such a pricey dish. We were given complimentary cappucino's and the owner Johnny was very affable. We will definitely be back

LOVE, LOVE , LOVE THIS PLACE!!
What can I say about this restaurant that I haven't already told anyone who will listen to me? I am so happy to be able to enjoy such amazing food and service right in my back yard. Fresh seafood, excellent variety to choose from, generous portions at a fair price. And you can enjoy the hospitality of some of the nicest people I have ever met!
Go and enjoy!

Always My Favorite!
My Mom and I went for a nice quiet dinner so we went early. Altho the staff was busy cleaning up after a big party, we were never ignored and all our needs were attended to. The staff has a way of making you feel like family and Chef Chris Ottobre has made some of the best food I have ever had the honor to enjoy. Go visit them soon, you will not be sorry.

Always a Pleasure!
I have dined here often, and I have never had a less than perfect meal, never had less than perfect service. It is always a pleasure to go. I often have the bronzini and it is wonderful! Fresh and light..it is my favorite entree. And this is difficult to say because you can't go wrong with whatever you are in the mood for. Go and enjoy!

Ahhh! The Best!
We went a little crazy with the appetizers this trip, but who can resist! Tuna Tartar, Shrimp cocktail, great salads..I was almost too full for the main course. But I ordered the whole fish - the bronzini, my person fav. Nice and light so you can enjoy the appetizers and still have room. We are always spoiled when we go and this was no exception!

Like finding Atlantis
Oceana is a real find. A local seafood restaurant that transcends the doldrums of Somerset County fare. Owned by a well respected family of restaurantours, the food is fresh, excellent and plated to perfection. The wine list is both extensive and moderately price.

Love Going On Shrimp Night!
I am not usually off on Tuesdays, but when I am I love to go for Shrimp Night. You choose how they are prepared, what type of sauce, and nice portion of rice or pasta. It's great! I had them grilled with risotto and they had amazing flavor! No matter how you choose, you can't go wrong.

Delicious, fresh seafood at Oceana!
Oceana delivers fresh and inventive seafood dishes in an unexpected location. Highly recommend for a nice dinner out when you are craving seafood. The octopus appetizer, in particular, was incredible!

From the outside it wasn't very promising, but step inside and suddenly you are transported to a Greek Island. The food was excellent all around. Best grilled octopus I've ever had and the mussels were top 2 ever. The fish was very fresh (they have them on ice display once you enter) and prepared beautifully and simply. Wait staff were attentive and the owner/maitre d was friendly and very vigilent. Place was packed. Loved it and we'll be back!

Great Food, Terrific Wine
This was our first experience at Oceana Grill and it will certainly not be our last. The food was excellent. Tuna Tartar appetizer special was exceptional and the Branzino was excellent. Enjoyed a lovely Bastianich white, a perfect complement to our meal. We look forward to the soon to be scheduled wine tasting.

We visited Oceana Grill on Wednesday and enjoyed our dinner. The food was very good and the portions were very large. For the appetizers we had Shrimp and Chorizo, large enough for 2, and the Caprese salad. The mozzarella was very large and thick. For the entrees we had the Mixed Seafood Grill and the Crab Cake. It could have had more roasted pepper aioli sauce for the very large crab cake. The portions were so large that we had leftovers to bring home which is unusual for us. They also have a large wine list of reasonably priced wines.
The service was very good.
We would go back there for their food and recommend it to others.

Excellent Seafood sampler special
Seafood sampler special consisting of 3 different fish / preparations from menu was excellent.

This was our second visit to Oceana Grill and will certainly not be our last. This time, we hosted our best friends for a belated anniversary dinner. Oysters were top notch and the tuna tartar special was excellent. One of our party chose the sirloin tips special while the rest of us chose the seafood sampler: Branzino on spinach, Snapper, and Salmon on leeks. Both turned out to be wonderful choices. Our server was very enthusiastic about the food and the wine and was most accommodating. Highly recommended.

Truly delicious food! Never
Truly delicious food! Never disappointed. The fish is fresh and tasty. A hidden gem

This is my idea of a perfect restaurant! Perfect service, perfect food.

Food was above-average solid -- very fresh fish -- prepared traditionally. Very good salads to start: sesame ginger calamari salad was very tender and well dressed. Horiatiki salad was delicious. Char-grilled octopus was well-prepared but needed a brighter acid touch. As for entrees: raves for the fish sampler. Sole was perfectly cooked, as was the sesame tuna. Attentive if somewhat leisurely service, but we were in no hurry and I hate being rushed at restaurants. Not stingy with the cocktail pours either. We'll be back.

Great neighborhood find
Came with a friend to celebrate her birthday. We were looking for a place in the neighborhood where we could have a leisurely dinner, in a quiet atmosphere, with good food and good service. Oceana Grill met all of our requirements. Very attentive wait staff. Food well presented.

Worth a visit
Our family loves Greek good and we're happy to see this new restaurant close by. We went early on a Sunday evening and were seated right away even though the parking lot was full. Very friendly staff - great food choices. All the traditional dishes and some new ones. Fresh seafood in the case as you walk in. Everything was delicious. The only disappointment was no Greek coffee because the machine was not working. We will definitely go back.
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very, very good Greek food. It could have been served a tad warmer, but some of the best Greek food I've ever had. Service was very good. Prices reasonable. Will definitely be going back soon.
