Oceano Bistro - Clayton Ratings and Reviews
Had the Kobe sliders for appetizer which were good, Corn Chowder was excellent, Twin lobster tails were ok, may have been slightly under cooked. Service was good, entire experience was fairly pricey. Been here quite a few times sometimes better than others.
Very overpriced! The scallops were good. The crab legs were scant, cold and distasteful, and they weren't served without knuckles the way the waiter described. The potatoes were unsavory and smelled old. The restaurant decor was unpleasant. Our booth had excessive space between the seats and the table, and my seat cushion was loose, so whenever I shifted to the edge of my seat to eat over the table, my seat cushion tipped forward.
Btw, this review form gives the following choices for noise level: Quiet, Moderate and Energetic. I'm not sure why OpenTable feels the need to use a euphemism, but my choice of Energetic for the noise level actually means that the Oceanic Bistro was disturbingly loud.
Upon arriving we were immediately made to feel welcome and important. The service was good and everything served as it should have been. We had four different meals and there were no complaints from anyone. Each meal was fantastic. We will definitely tell our friends and we will be back.
The food was excellent, but our server left us wishing we’d gone elsewhere. He was clearly not very excited to be working Christmas Eve. I did feel bad for him when he had to read 15 minutes worth of specials to us (and the rest of his tables)- it made it hard for him to touch his tables in a timely manner. The food came out super quickly. A little too quickly for the menu prices. I wanted a nicely paced evening without feeling rushed. Then we waited for our check for as long as our entire meal took. We were interested in looking at a dessert menu, but after waiting 15 minutes for it then being told by our server “I don’t have any dessert menus but I can tell you about them?” we decided to just get the check. The whole evening and pace of the meal was pretty wonky. Like I said, great food, but I’m paying for the experience too, and it wasn’t enough to make us come back.
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.
