Hard to believe but Chris and team over delivered again!! Phenomenal meal from start to finish and we managed to “escape” without dessert 😂. Long time CH friends first experience and they said several times “they’ll be back.”

We choose this restaurant blindly, by looking at websites for Collingwood. We are from Maryland, and we were in town to attend a concert at the Scottish Rite Auditorium. There were wonderful reviews online for L'Oceano Ristorante - and we were not disappointed! I had the maple glazed salmon, which was marvelously tasty. The other three in the party had the fish special, which all enjoyed. It was a great experience there. If we are in town again, we would return for a meal.

Being 60+ miles away it isn't always easy to visit during the week so we tried a Sunday dinner for the first time. As always the food and service were exceptional!! Started with some favorites; Old school meatballs, grilled romaine and a new choice for us Squid Asian style. All were great. All order fish entrees, either the pompano or trout. As always the fish is prepared perfectly. And then there is dessert!!

Great dining experience. Thanks to Chris and his team.

A Collingswood gem! Our server was very knowledgeable, patient, and helpful with our selections. Our food was beautifully arranged and quite tasty. Next time I would order the dressing on the side with the grilled romaine. The gnocchi had a delicious pillow like texture. The swai, too, was good and made an excellent lunch the next day. The complimentary eggplant tapenade was a nice addition, just needed a touch more salt.

Chris couldn’t be nicer. The staff is on top of their game without being on top of the customers.
Preparation is wonderful. Food outstanding we’ve been here twice now. Both times the fresh fish with a Sicilian sauce (gravy we’re in Jersey)

We have been going to L’Oceano for years and Chris never disappoints. We always have a great dinner at L’Oceano. We enjoy the food, the ambiance, the service is great and Chris is always walking around the restaurant making sure everything is going well with his customers. The fish is always fresh and delicious and there are a few different sauces you can have with the fish, all very good. Chris also has gnochi available as an appetizer or entree. These gnochi are the best we ever had. They are lke little pillows of goodness. Can’t say enough about this place, you just have to get there.
Thanks again, Chris. See you soon.

We were greeted warmly by the owner who also told us the specials of the day. There is varios selection of seafood appetizers and entree. We selected stone crab claws and rock shrimp bruschetta. Both were delicious and the bruschetta portion was quite large. For entrees we ordered their 2fish specials and a seafood pot pie. There was a misunderstanding of 2 separate fish dishes so instead of grilled benzino and a dish of cod we ended up with 2 benzino dishes. They were accommodating and willing to exchange but I decided to try it and the benzino turned out to be delicious! The owner offered to treat us to dessert on the house- a big slice of chocolate cake and a carrot cake. Both my sister and husband said they were the best dessert ever.

Will definitely return.
