Food was excellent as usual but service was far from what we usually experience. It was first time in over a year that I was able to get out to lunch after having gone through major surgeries. In all previous dining experiences service was prompt and attentive. On this occasion wait staff and management seemed to be trying play catch-up with serving customers. Our waiter was very attentive when he was able to get to our table but there were long periods in between where we were waiting for first course, coffee refills etc.

From ownership to the kitchen the place is doing a fabulous job of making every patron happy with where they are spending their dining dollars. The enclosed patio is always a great place to sit and visit and dine. My wife and I love the specials off the menu as well as on. You will enjoy your experience and not break the bank doing it.

We went to Oceano for a special family dinner the night before Thanksgiving. Our two grandchildren, ages 4 and 14 months, were party of the group. The restaurant gave us a lovely, private table on its enclosed patio area. It was quite private and our sometimes boisterous group hopefully did not bother other diners. It also was toasty warm. The food, as usual, was absolutely delicious! Fresh, creative, and scrumptious!!! The service was outstanding. It was quick, unobtrusive, and met our every need. We can highly recommend Oceano Bistro for any type occasion; family dinners, date nights, couples get-togethers, whatever!

My coworker and I were advised to try this place out by another colleague. We were not disappointed. We went on a Monday night and the place was very busy. We were seated promptly and the service was excellent. We both got the beet salad and I got a dish of the healthy menu. My coworker got the swordfish. We both had glasses of wine. The meals were excellent, we will certain recommend to other colleagues and go again when we are in town.

This is our new favorite restaurant for special occasions. The food is always fantastic, the wait-staff friendly and helpful, and although it's always full, it's never noisy. Highly recommend the beef carpaccio as a starter--it's the best we've had anywhere. The spinach salad with goat cheese and mango is yummy. And the Truffle Scallops are to die for.

We were very pleasantly surprised with our latest visit. We have dined here before and we were not impressed. We thought that we would give it one more try. The server was phenomenal. He knew the menu well and he made it a very comfortable dining visit. We started with a special clam appetizer that was to die for. I want more!! The clams were cooked perfectly with the most delicious lemon garlic sauce with turkey chorizo, tomato and crustinis. I also had the truffle scallops, cooked to perfection. My husband had the shrimp scampi pasta. He loved it and it looked so good, I will be trying it next time. I am so glad we tried it again, we will definitely be returning.

This was our first time at this restaurant. We were very pleased. The crab cake appetizer was bountiful and delicious. The bread and dipping sauce was very good and replenished. We split the prawn fettuccini and the server kindly brought spit plates without being asked. It was very good and plenty for two. Everything was perfectly cooked and seasoned. We will definitely go here again when in St. Louis.

We arrived on time for our OpenTable reservation at Oceano Bistro and were seated 30 minutes later without exaggeration. Famished, we ordered right away and our food was ready very quickly. So quickly that the food came out before we were given silverware or napkins. Upon getting said silverware, and later the napkins, the food did not meet expectations. I had the truffle oil scallops and would never order them again. The dish lacked basic salt and pepper and was overwhelmed by the truffle oil. The flavor of the scallops was completely masked. I ordered a side of portobello mushrooms to compensate for my dislike of the scallops, and when the waitress brought them to the table she looked at my half-eaten dish of scallops and said emphatically "that is the BEST thing on the menu - those and the fennel dusted scallops - they're amazing!" Well, if that is the best they serve I certainly don't want to try anything else. We couldn't have gotten out of there any faster - we ordered, ate, paid, and left within 45 minutes of being seated. .. almost as much as our wait to get in.

Disclaimer: There was a large party for a high school's 50th reunion in the restaurant that night, so I understand that things will be backed up and mistakes will be made. I am a reasonable person and was ready to give the benefit of the doubt. However, I don't think that is an excuse for how bad those scallops were or how a reservation can be delayed by an entire half-hour when our dining time was all of 45 minutes. We won't be going back.

We were celebrating our anniversary and my birthday. It was our first time there and the staff service was excellent and the food was amazing. I would have preferred a more quiet romantic setting because it was a bit louder than I wanting for our occasion and it seemed that the food quality and atmosphere didn't match. But overall I would recommend to others just not if they want quiet and romantic do I give them a 4 star.

My wife and I are very big food junkies. We try a new restaurant every Wednesday for our date nights.

The service was ok. But for the price, we were not impressed with the variety or the taste of your food.

I'm really sorry, but we just can not reccommend your restaurant at this time.

Hope this helps.

Thank you.
