The food was well prepared but the fillet of sole was a little too heavily sauced. A mixed seafood entree ordered by a friend seemed to be enjoyed. The best part of the restaurant is that it is quiet enough to hear what your table mates are saying.

We were Two couples that dined there Saturday night. We each ordered different dishes. Best mussels I have ever had in my life. Grilled calamari was excellent as was the grilled octopus. Sword fish and lobster were terrific. The only disappointment was the yellow fin tuna--very little taste and not a great quality cut. I've been to Oceanos many times and only occasionally does it disappoint. However I did not go home hungry!

Excellent Meal...Went with a friend this time and had the nantucket bay scallops. They were so sweet and delicious. Matt was my waiter. A very gracious man who took care of us very nice. Service was OUTSTANDING!!! I had a bourbon to start the night and ended with a very delicious espresso martini. I asked for decaf because it was later in the night. My friend had the rib eye steak. This restaurant is better than any place in the city. Can't wait to go back! Wonderful Experience!

Went for birthday - great service and wide variety of great choices. Fresh shell fish was top notch but something was off in the crab cocktail but the portion was generous. Coconut shrimp was tasty but a bit overdone and harder than I would like... I usually love it- was disappointed with portion. All fish was fresh and amazing as was cooked vegetables... not a risotto fan -would ask for replacement next time... would still recommend this place to anyone wanting a special meal not limited in budget $$$$.

OUTSATNDING!!!
I came with my wife for our anniversary!!!! We had such a great time!!! We have been married for over 20 years and this was one of our most memorable meals. We went nuts this year. We ordered the most expensive bottle of champagne and had a tower of 3 dozen oysters to start. I had the rib eye steak. It was so delicious and it cut like butter. My wife had the king crab legs which tasted so sweet. YUMMY!! Dessert was complementary and came out with a candle and we had another bottle of champagne to finish the night. What a GREAT TIME. And the service was top notch. WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!! THANK YOU !!!!! GREAT TIME!!!!

AWESOME!!!!

This is the BEST RESTAURANT ever. Everything was amazing here. From Start to finish the food and service was top notch. I had the Nantucket Bay Scallops which were amazing. Owners Nick and Peter were very gracious and made sure we had a great time. Our server Ali was very knowledgeable and attentive to our table. The Baklava was the best I have ever had. Thank you for a Great Birthday!!!!

Fantastic place with really good food and wine. There is only one complaint. This place is in Fair Lawn and not in some area where parking is a rare commodity. Why are you forcing me to use your 3rd party valet service? The kids are 18 years old from some 3rd party company. One of them didn't even know how to drive manual transmission. Come on folks, valet does not make a place upscale it's not the 90s. You got a great restaurant with great food, get rid of valet. I parked by myself and didn't even know you had valet when I was cornered by a kid saying is valet only and that he needs my keys.

Been going to Oceanos for years. It never disappoints. The seafood is always fresh and prepared very well. Their mojito is the best around Bergen county and they do a generous pour of wine as well.

drink was delicious (pear twist)- and alcoholic enough that we each only felt the need to have one. Oysters Rockefeller were so yummy; mussels broth was delicious but I missed the crusty bread to sop up the broth and the mussels themselves were so large I thought they were tough.

I have dined at Oceanos for many, many years and have never been disappointed! This week we went with the family to celebrate my sisters birthday. As we walked in we were warmly greeted by the Host who brought us into the bar area where we met the rest of our party. He returned shortly to bring us all to a nice round table for 8. Our server was wonderful and paced our appetizers, wine and dinner as we enjoyed family time. Peter the owner came over to greet us and surprised us with a additional appetizer on the house. At the end of the evening we were sang to by staff and restaurant, ice cream was added to our cake as well as cupcakes to the desert selection. A wonderful evening and we will see you soon!!!
