Thanksgiving dinner was awesome. We were looking for an alternative to turkey and this fit the bill. Food and service were great. Highly recommend for any occasion.

Love the warm rolls and olive oil. My entree of scallops was delicious! I did not think the fruit cobbler was very good. The service was great and nice ambiance.

Food & ambiance was great. However, our server left a little to be desired. While he tried to do an adequate job, he was way over his head for this level of a restaurant. This was a huge let down compared to our last visit.

Corey waited on us and he was super friendly, knowledgeable, and made an excellent recommendation for a delicious bottle of wine. Thank you, Corey! Every course that we had was such an enticing, different, and exciting combination of flavors. The food was Delicious. We savored every single bite! The grilled vegies are always superb with the side of balsamic brie dip. We tried 2 salads, both wonderful. We are not huge fans of feta cheese, but you served up creamy, mild cheese that we both liked. And the scallops were perfect! Thank you also for the anniversary dessert. What a thoughtful thing to do!

Overall I would recommend Oceono. I would say that my sea bass was salty but the crab cake appetizer, salad and dessert more than made up for it. I will be back

Excellent menu options, especially seafood. Possibly the best seafood chowder anywhere. Outstanding waitstaff, with special recognition to Corey, our server. Friendly and knowledgable about each dish and its preparation. Could not have enjoyed the evening and dinner more.

Great food, great service. My only issue was that the table we were seated at was squished into a corner and I could barely get in and out of the chair and I am only 5'-4" and 110lbs. Also note that this was NOT a result of spacing tables apart due to COVID restrictions as I could have reached over with my arm and touched the person at the table next to me.

Oysters were the best we’ve ever had, the trout was well prepared and very fresh, shrimp and crap cake appetizers also very good. Overall impressed with the quality of the food. The only negatives were the risotto side which was slightly salty, but still good, and my cocktail which was just not good and way too sweet. I will chalk that up to bad choice. We will return!
