The fish was very fresh and prepared to perfection The grilled octopus appetizer was enough for the three of us to share. The oyster selection was good and each one was delicious.. . We had scallops, attic char and king crab legs for our entrees. Dessert was also delicious.
Best food. Great menu. Had oysters. Tuna tartar. Caesar salad. And red snapper with lump crabmeat. Everything top quality. The pumpernickel bread and fresh olives are so good. Wish I had room for dessert. Pretty place.
Been going for many years. It is expensive. But you get what you pay for. Love it here. Yum
Great time. Food was excellent.
We had a Spectacular Time! The food was absolutely delicious and the service was very professional!
Outstanding restaurant, in an upexpected location. Mainly seafood, with the necessary meat dishes. Lovely ambiance and service, without being pretentious. Will definitely return again.
Another GREAT meal! My wife and I came for an early dinner today straight after work. We had this new drink the barteener as working on called "Call me an Uber" hahahah. Great name!! It was a bourbon cocktail that tasted amazing. I had the special nantucket scallops that were delicious and my wife had the whole red snapper that was super fresh and tasty. Of course we had to have Oysters for appetizer. We had 2 dozen of the kumamoto which were amazingly sweet and had that real crispness, and "just shucked" taste. Yummy. I can't wait to come back and have the tuna tartare. Our server was awesome too. Great gal named Emily!!!
We had a reservation, but were seated at the bar area for 45 minutes. The owner did give us a free shrimp cocktail once seated, however the hostess sat 2 couples before us, who arrived after we did. The restaurant gives priority to repeat customers, which is understandable however needs to work on punctuality.
We have been here many times before but this was an off day. I had mussels & it was very hard to get them out of the shell. stuck so badly that it almost went across the table. I had lobster and it was excellent but they only had a 1 1/2 pound so o didn’t get very much meat. My husband is not a fish person so he had lamb and he said they were not very good. As I said, we have been here before & it was excellent so I’m hoping this was an off day. We will go back again but if it’s not good then it will be our last.
Overall good experience. Friendly staff and has a good vibe. Was disappointed that our dinner was served within minutes of placing the order. We had not finished our cocktail and it was obvious that the food was prepared and plated ahead of time. For the price I expect the wait staff to know when to serve and that the food should be prepared (or appear to be) once ordered. Food was very good. Liked the wine list - reasonable prices.
Eat there all the Time always a good experience
GREAT TIME!! I came here with my wife for date night and it was outstanding! Our server was Richie who was a real professional, the kind of waiter who knows what you need before you need it. We had the Oceanos Seafood Tower for an appetizer with all the oysters and clams and shrimp. The Lobster was so fresh and delicious. For entree I had the Alaskan King Crab Legs and my wife had the special Halibut which was too pretty too eat. Next time I will make some room for dessert. Love it!!! Great Place!!!
Allergy to citrus that was not taken seriously by chef. All food came with lemon garnishes and tasted of citrus. Benadryl....here I come.
This place was great food was delicious! My wife loved it very much we will be going back very soon...
My husband and his friend frequent this place so decided to take my friend for a special birthday. The service was perfect and the food was beautiful and tasty. Still obsessing over the octopus appetizer. Will definitely be going again.
Oceanos never disappoints! The food is always amazing, the service is always good, and the atmosphere is quiet enough, yet lively, to enjoy a good meal.
Excellent food & romantic ambiance make this a great spot for special occasions. The quaint little bar serves excellent cocktails before or after dinner, and the raw bar & specials are outstanding quality. The biggest drawbacks are the limited wine list and the cost. Oddly enough, the wines were actually decent value. I did find it odd, however, that a seafood restaurant offered twice as many reds as whites. While the food is exceptional, the price is as well. $25 shrimp cocktails and $40 seafood entrees is a bit expensive for Fair Lawn, NJ.
Our favorite restaurant in the area, always excellent!
From the Hostess to the Waiter to the amazing food, I would recommend this place 100 times over!
Awesome place and service, drink are served with Top Shelf liquor!
We have always enjoyed dining there, especially when we can sit outside in the warmer weather. This time we were rather disappointed with our meal. The fried calamari were not especially crispy and my dover sole was chewy rather than flaky. At this price point, there should not be any disappointments.
Was our first time there. What a great great place to have dinner and the price although a little expensive was well worth the value. Staff was exceptional from the valet to the waitress it was amazing I will definitely be back
Visited Oceano’s for a post Valentines dinner with my wife; venue is very nice and since it was a Friday evening reservation, the restaurant became crowded very quickly. Although the food was tasty, the service and overall experience left much to be desired. We noticed three couples who were seated well after us, receive their food first - one of which ordered the exact same appetizer as us and that seemed unfair. It took 43 minutes after we were seated for us to finally receive our appetizers - part of me wants to give the benefit of the doubt here, since they were very busy, but this was something that could not go unnoticed. We had the impression that people were being prioritized based on their looks/attire/air of importance? There are far too many restaurants in the area for us to give this place a second chance.
This restaurant does holidays very well, always consistent.
A delicious meal, went for Valentine's Day and loved it. The food was elegant, delicious, and very fresh. The sea bass was incredible.
Lovely Valentines Day evening meal. The service was spectacular as well as the food.
Valentines Day so service understandably slow and tables packed in close.
Crab cakes best we’ve ever had. Octopus also very good. $69 cold seafood platter a real disappointment. Clams & oysters were fine but shrimp & half lobster were pitiful. Tasteless & watery. Almost felt like the were previously cooked and then frozen and thawed. A real failure and enough reason not to return. Too many better seafood places in Bergen County to come back here.
Best seafood Ive had in awhile. The Black Sea Bass was amazing as was my wifes swordfish. Get the Oceanos sampler , great oyaters, clams, shrimp and a half a lobster. Place is very nice and the service was good , especially for it being Valentines day. Will be back.
Awesome food and awesome service !
Always great food with exceptional service.
An always enjoyable meal with very welcoming hosts
Always pleasurable with a wonderful menu and wine list
Again a very nice evening
This is a great restaurant. I have eaten here three different times and have always had excellent food and service. This is a go to place for very fine seafood dining. Creative dishes with solid wine list, cocktails, craft beers and desserts to choose.
We go to Oceanos at least 6x a year and we were even there on New Year's Eve this year. We always enjoy our meal and always get excellent service. We are big fish eaters and there is a lot of variety to choose from - from swordfish to scallops to bronzino, red snapper and more, there is a lot on the regular menu as well as offered in their specials. I had the swordfish for the first time and thought it was delicious; our friends got a scallops special and loved it. They are also willing to make substitutions or to modify a dish if requested. This is one of our favorite places for a Saturday evening dinner out with friends.
I enjoyed my dinner as I usually do. However I did not enjoy sitting in the room with the bar. I definitely didn't think it was necessary to sit there since the main dining room was not busy.
First time will turn to many times
The whole experience was amazing.
Our food was cooked to absolute perfection.
Served wit great spacing and delightfully pleasant and with great knowledge.
We will be back soon!
Place was packed and they sat us at a table in the bar area which was fine. We had 8 pm reservations and there wasn't an empty table. The service was excellent and we weren't rushed which was nice. Grilled octopus is excellent and expensive. Wife had a salad and the Chilean sea bass and thought both were very good. I got the lamb chops, they were good but I think they are better at their sister restaurant Taverna Mykonos. Overall, it was a good experience and I would go back.
My girlfriend and I were seated in the bar area. Not my first choice and something to note for future visits. Having said that, the food and the service were outstanding! Quite possibly the best wood-grilled swordfish and grilled octopus we have ever eaten. We will be returning again and again!
Great Service, Great wines, Great food especially Grilled Octopus app and whole fishes. Not a fan of the seating bench with seats so close together but other than that we love it and will return..
Amazing food and atmosphere. Pricey but you get what you paid for. I would recommend only for adults.
The fish is always tasty and can be plain broiled or prepared creatively .
The Vesuvius cake is a must for chocolate lovers!
