I took my daughter out to celebrate her acceptance to the Grad school Medical. We had such a good time. First of all I made a reservation for outside, but manager was so nice and accommodating to change it so we can sit inside of the restaurant. They were keeping all measures to make sure it won’t be overcrowded inside. Food was excellent to perfection and delicious as always. Steaks were prepared the was we asked. Great and friendly place. Definitely recommend to go there.

We love Oceanos. We patronize almost once a week and enjoy special occasions with our family at the restaurant. The waiters and busboys to the owners are top notch. Recommend this restaurant very highly.

My husband and I ordered the oysters tower and the oysters were so fresh! The grilled octopus was the best we ever had. Will be back again soon. Highly recommend.

Had not been there in years and kept waiting to find the right "occasion." We figured our first post-pandemic dinner out for a birthday was just right. They did a great job making you feel like you were eating in an upscale restaurant even though you were under a tent, in a parking lot. Tables were sufficiently separated and precautions were used. The mediterranean influence was evident in the menu. We started with the "dip" sampler with pita. It was excellent. I had scallops - which were seared perfectly and delicious. He had halibut topped with crab meat. Also great. Dessert was a light custard with shredded phyllo and some honey. Sweet, but not heavy. Service was good - perhaps could have been a bit more attentive, but given the "running" involved, not too bad. Definitely recommend!

Unfortunately, the food has tasted less and less pleasing over the last few months. My wife and I enjoy going there for the oysters, but things like the fish or steak have come out over cooked the last two times in a row. While oysters are great, we used to enjoy having other pieces of our meal be equally satisfying. Not sure if we would go back again.

Everything at Oceanos was outstanding, from the food to the service to the atmosphere. First the tent is gorgeous. They did an amazing job decorating it. It is very welcoming and the best part is how warm it is in there!

Our server Jean was exceptional. He was very helpful, extremely nice and attentive.

The food was beyond incredible. The octopus is the best I ever had. My sister got the twin lobster tails which she couldn’t stop talking about. I had gotten the Chilean sea bass and it was amazing. It literally just melted in your mouth. The portion sizes are a good amount. It is definitely worth the price. Everything was so fresh and cooked perfectly.

We will definitely be coming back!

Oceanos has been a seafood staple in Bergen county for a long time, while o personally have not been here in over 5 years, it was even better than I remember! My husband and I, who enjoyed dinning out a few times a week have not been out to dinner since the start of the pandemic and adding to our family, our children are 2.5 and 7 months old.
We selected outdoor dining for our first night out as parents of 2, we sat in the outdoor terrace section and it was perfect! Beautifully decorated, ample heating lamps (though it was warm that night for late March so we didn’t even need them), the ambiance was wonderful and safe, tables spread out very well, even for outdoors.
We had oysters and the grilled octopus to start, both were excellent. A bottle of wine, and a few cocktails later we had our entree, the red snapper special stuffed with jumbo lump crab, WOW!
We are both seafood snobs and my husband who hardly raves said it was the best fish since we were on our honeymoon in Maui, now that’s saying something!!!
The cheesecake was wonderful and so was the limoncello (not on the menu but as an Italian, I always ask for it!)
Our waiter Matthew was wonderful, professional and personable.
It was a perfect night for us to get away for a few hours, we lingered for a while because we could and we had the best time. Thank you Oceanos, from a former Fair Lawn girl, I’m still very impressed!

Freshest oysters I’ve ever had. Never noticed how important it is to have them shucked right ! And the bread ?! My god Fresh. Had the rib eye today for lunch and what a monster. Tender; right temperature. Best seafood/ sea grill in Jersey ! Everything from start to finish- spectacular .

The ribeye was very chewy. So much so that I sent it back. Was here before the lockdown and it was a much better experience. Overpriced fir the food quality. Overall 2 stars in my opinion. Maybe I’ll try it again in a year.

We were enormous fans and always recommended Oceanos. In fact, it was the restaurant of choice for family birthdays last summer and business lunches throughout COVID-19. We even agreed to be photographed last summer and we are on the website/Instagram. We have ice cream in the kitchen with the owner/staff. Tonight’s experience was beyond disappointing. My husband ordered the ribeye medium. It was served well done. We complained - which isn’t our typical but it wasn’t edible. Mistakes happen and we weren’t originally too upset. However, they took it back, sliced it and re-served the same steak. Sorry that is not how you fix an overcooked steak that costs $60. They tried again. Brought another well done steak. Meanwhile, no one asked about my dinner which was not good either - the halibut special which was supposed to have a fresh mango salsa - it wasn’t fresh but rather some sort of mango preserve that was overly sweet on top of fish that had no taste. We clearly didn’t “dine” together. The manager came over once when we first sent the steak back but never checked in again. We had ordered starters (they were good) and a glass of wine. We paid the bill and left. Unfortunate- they lost a good customer.
