The food was great but our service was subpar. Other tables around us were well taken care of by their waiters. I think it was just our server that was missing in action for large chunks of time. I had to ask other staff members for water...twice. Other than that, we enjoyed our food and drinks and would probably visit again when in the area.

Lived in Bergen County for 50 years. What on earth was I waiting for? Terrific food. Inventive. Fresh. Satisfying. Service was top notch, from the attention at the bar, pre-meal, to our waiter, Ali. Instant fan who will return.

Been here several times when visiting family in the area. Always feel welcomed and most importantly have never had anything but a great meal. The fish is always so fresh and perfectly prepared. It is certainly not inexpensive but like they say — you get what you is for; at least you do here

Wonderful seafood selection -- not often you see Dover Sole on the menu in the US. Also has a full bar, which can be a challenge in this area. Prices are on the high side, but you should know this because you have viewed the menu on the web site. Service was okay.
I'll be back, but if price is an issue ????

Really loved the food. Atmosphere good , a little crowded and loud but the seafood was excellent. Very creative, everything perfectly done. Those who had the non seafood options were pleased as well. Decent wine list. Price reasonable for quality. Will definitely be back when in the area!

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!

As much as I would love to eat at oceanos all the time. The food is very expensive. Saying that. You get what you pay for. The bread and olives are so fresh and delicious like nowhere else. Sides could be more inventive. Rice and great beans. Lobster and fish fresh. Nice bar.

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!!!!

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.
