Easily the best experience I’ve had at any restaurant. Brought the girl I had been talking to on our first real date here. We were seated promptly, and did not even have to ask to sit on the enclosed patio seating area. With the windows open to the outside it was the comfort of sitting inside with the ambiance of sitting outside. Just the environment we were in, it would’ve been very hard to have a bad experience. Drinks were good and wine was not overpriced. Appetizer was good, but the entrees were absolutely fantastic. I got the surf and turf and she got the lobster tails, we finished every bite. We had the cheesecake for dessert, was the perfect ending to a fantastic night. Bill was 188$, which isn’t cheap but the experience was worth every dollar. If you want to take someone out for an experience, and not just a meal, go to oceano.

Everything was wonderful! Chose Sunday to have dinner there. Perfect timing. Anthony, our server, was great. The Surf and Turf looked like an artist's design! Definitely going back.

Tasteless (bland) salads and a bland seafood soup. That was enough to decide against ordering entrees and we left.

The wait staff was MIA, opting to attend to large tip tables/groups.

The good news is I had a dinner reservation across the street.

I had a wonderful birthday dinner. The seafood chowder was absolutely divine. I also had the scallops, and I enjoyed them but towards the end I noticed just a hint of that they were starting to turn. My mom really enjoyed the crab cakes and Kobe beef sliders. Service was very attentive as I only had to look up for a staff member to realize I would like some black pepper. The complimentary bread pudding for my birthday was a wonderful finishing touch. I will definitely be back.

My husband and I enjoyed a great lunch yesterday. Fabulous food and great service by Vitto. Vitto brought us a huge cinnamon roll to split while we waited for our food. It was so good, we had to resist finishing it to have room for our food. We split a wonderful spinach salad, and I had the salmon while hubby had the crab risotto. No room for dessert, but I'd be surprised if they weren't as great as the meal. Definitely glad we found Oceano Bistro on our visit to St. Louis. We are looking forward to eating here again!!

The whole experience was simply beautiful. We were thrilled to spend our 35th wedding anniversary at Oceano Bistro. We will visit again soon. Our waiter Jake was very attentive, and the owner/manager visited our table and was very friendly! We really had a wonderful time.

I had the salmon from the lighter/healthier menu and absolutely loved it! The butternut squash, carrots and broccoli were an amazing blend of flavors that worked extremely well with the salmon. The crab cake appetizer dish was equally delicious. I will definitely visit again when in St. Louis.

The food could not have been better. We savored every bite and enjoyed our night out immensely. The service was great and the food came out quickly but not so quickly that we felt rushed. The ambiance was louder than I expected but that did not take away from the experience. We will return!

There was a waiter serving two completely different tables Who was extremely loud. We heard everything on the menu and the waiter was 3 to a tables away.

If this waiter has a hearing problem then I understand and apologize , if not he needs to tone down.

Overall we had a good dinner.

We recently were here for a birthday celebration with about a group of 5. The whole place made sure our experience was great! The manager kept checking to make sure everything was good! The bartender, Sam, even made us a specialty cocktail we loved! We So appreciated how well the whole staff made our dinner special even during the pandemic. The food was amazing too!

This was my first visit to Oceano since the COVID crisis began. The food was excellent as always. I was really impressed with their attention to detail in how they dealt with COVID related sanitation issues. I felt very comfortable that they had done whatever they could to minimize the risks.
