Fathers Day. This was an unforgettable dining experience. Oceanos is the best restaurant I’ve been to in NJ. The quality of everything is 10/10.

Valet parking was great, we were seated promptly and wait staff person came over right away to introduce herself and ask if we wanted anything from the bar. The food was quite good and all the meals came out at the same time. Had tuna tartare and crab cakes appetizers - both big enough to share. Our main courses were tasty although the special blackened lobster/Chilean sea bass combo was too oily - the halibut, Dover sole and scallops were all good. We did not order dessert. We would definitely return.

As always, my dining experience at Oceanos was fantastic. The seafood couldn’t be any fresher. Our mains were delicious and cooked to perfection. The service is always amazing. Makes me realize I need to come more often.

We sat in the outdoor tent which is nicely decorated with tables spaced apart. Our food was decadent! Octopus salad was well worth the price. Our entrees, the scallops and the seared tuna were amazing. Portions on appetizers, salads and entree are generous so I recommend sharing salads and appetizers. Service was very pleasant. Enjoy!

We had a wonderful time dining at Oceanos!!! The seafood was the most fresh we’ve ever had anywhere else. Definitely not going to order any seafood elsewhere!! Only at Oceanos! The special drinks were so quality and delicious. The portions were big, the service was very knowledgeable and attentive. We chose to sit outside in the front tent and we felt like we are somewhere in Europe. It is so beautifully decorated and you can tell that they care about the experience that customers will have. Except of the freshest seafood they have an amazing selection of French wines and their wine list is quite impressive. Can’t wait to bring our friends and family!

I took my wife to Oceanos for our 32nd wedding anniversary (accompanied by our 16 year old twins). The food was excellent, but the service was extraordinarily slow. We appreciated the complimentary dessert brought to our table, with candles, to help my wife and me celebrate our special occasion. We will come back, but not for a while and not too often. Simply too pricey (about $400 all in).

The fried calamari was wonderful!
My friend and I each had the pink snapper with lump crab meat special, including vegetable risotto and asparagus. It was delicious and the portions were generous.
I gave the service 4 stars rather than 5 stars because we had a long wait for our drinks to be delivered to the table. Otherwise the service was excellent.

Lovely tent situation- we had done takeout during covid but this was our first time dining back onsite- in the tent - and it was very nicely appointed. Food was great- although pricey- as always! Love the crabcake apps and the grilled octopus is the best anywhere. Also they made me a lovely French Martini.

OUTSTANDING!!!! Every time I come here everything is absolutely amazing. They have done an amazing job with the outdoor dining and you feel like you’re in some Greek island chilling and escaping. As usual I ordered a lobster tails from South Africa my wife and I had a bottle of French wine white burgundy. She had the halibut special which was amazing. Richie was our waiter and he did a great job taking care of us. 👍👍👍

We went out to Oceanos for lunch with my girlfriend and we had the best time ever! We sat at a beautifully decorated tent, started our lunch with the special drinks, Sex in Paris and Call me an Uber, super fresh crab cakes and octopus! Everything was so flavorful and fresh! The staff was friendly attentive. We also shared a special halibut and South African lobster tails and a bottle of French rosé from their summer list! Best experience ever! Can’t wait to come back and bring my family!

All the food needed salt. Not impressed with any of it. Server was nice but not attentive at all. We almost had to get up to pour our own glasses of wine after about 20 minutes and had to track down someone else just to get a refill on waters. Only one entree special for the entire day. Most of what we saw could be ordered at any Italian restaurant. Wouldn’t go back.

our favorite fish restaurant in North Jersey was disappointing this last visit. We ordered our favorite cocktails and fish specials… drinks tasted watered down, shrimp barely warm and rice warm and cold…
even the baklava was dense with cinnamon but not walnuts with a scant drizzle of honey…
Hope this was an exception … if it was our first visit, we wouldn’t be returning….

You cannot find this quality anywhere else!!!
We went out to celebrated our anniversary and Oceanos made it feel even more special! We started our meal with our favorite crab cakes which were super fresh and tasty, octopus and salad. My husband had Langostinos and I had South African lobster tails! We are like and queen and a king! We shared our meals and everything was prepared perfect and tasted amazing!!! The staff was very knowledgeable and attentive!
We shared a bottle of French Chardonnay which was the most delicious Chardonnay we’ve ever had! Their wine list is impressive! We finished our night with a pair of special cocktails (Sex in Paris and Call me an Uber!! Amazing both!!!!) and they gave us complimentary dessert!! Thank you Oceanos for another wonderful experience!!

The food and cocktails were amazing, but the service was mediocre. I was a waiter in high school and college. I know a few things about how basics of hospitality and service. The service we received was not on par with a $230 bill. There were not problems per-say, but my water glass sat empty for most of the meal, our waitress did not ask how our appetizers or main course were. I was waiting to say something to the manager, but he did not show up until we were walking away. Owners/management if you're reading this, you are doing an awesome job with your food and drinks, but your manager and hospitality is the weak spot for sure. Overall I would come back food was so good it overcame the lackluster service. I had the scallops, my wife had the lobster both were amazing. I had the "Call me an Uber" cocktail which was awesome. Wife had the "Sex in Paris" which she said was very good too.

OUTSTANDING!!! Love this place outstanding and delicious and consistent every single time !! I ordered the South African lobster tails and my wife ordered the Langostinos which were absolutely delicious. We drank the new French wines they put on the list. We sat in the patio where the waterfall is has also met some friends who are dining there at the same time. We later had more cocktails in the patio. What a fun time ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Oceanos is our favorite spot for either a special occasion or a get together with a friend! We go there few times a week and it is always a perfect experience!
We’ve had a wonderful lunch with my friend and the staff was super attentive, the food was delicious as always. We’ve started with some summer special drinks and they were made just perfect!!! Also, their special rosé selection is impressive! We’ve shared a bottle of Greek rosé and I had to bring one bottle home with me so we can enjoy it with my husband!
Love this place !

Very okay experience, especially being the price it is. 4 of us went out, it wasn’t a busy night, spent over $600 and I constantly had to ask for my water to be filled and remind the waiter of various items or requests. We got oysters and they never explained which we had infront of us- we had to ask. They also weren’t shucked correctly and had shells in many of then. My salad had goat cheese that wasn’t split up, rather a block of cheese just sitting on my salad. My Alaska crab legs were way over cooked and dry, they didn’t debone my husbands bronzino, my friends salmon was bland and my other friends steak tough and overcooked as well.

We were looking forward to a great night out, but this place really didn’t deliver. We wouldn’t go back. Overpriced, dishes bland/over cooked or dry, and very mediocre at best service. The waiter was respectful when he did come around, just very slow and inexperienced, but for the price should’ve delivered much better service.

2 stars as the ambiance is nice- but everything else really lacks.

Excellent food, drinks and service! Tent is heated which is nice, but if sitting too long by one of the vents, you will be extra warm - be sure to rotate seats with your party as we did :) Perfect for date night!

Our waiter Mathew was exceptional . The food was good but not as good as I would have expected with the price vs varka which I consider exceptional . The ambience and service was outstanding though . The octopus good but the soft shell crab a bit chewy and the sea bass a bit dry .
