We were greeted enthusiastically by the hosts. Food was good, overall. The Lobster Mac and cheese, Salmon,
Asparagus and potatoes au gratin were enjoyable. The Caesar salad was really sad—not pre-tossed, lots of white pieces of lettuce, and not enough dressing. Didn’t get the chance to tell the server because we didn’t see him again until after our food arrived. Our expectation was fine dining level service but our server just wasn’t trained for that. He shifted back and forth constantly while talking and was always in a hurry—like asking if we needed anything but leaving before we answered the question, offering drinks but not giving us time to ask questions about the menu until we stopped him, etc. Pretty much not pausing to be present, to make a human connection, to make a decision, or read the table. (There we’re plenty of staff on hand so this was not a short-staffed situation). Also reaching over us to pre-bus the entire table at once instead of a little at a time. As a result, our overall experience felt less like a special occasion (which was never acknowledged by any of the staff) and more like fast casual dining (like you would expect at BJs). The prices, however are anything but casual so that’s why the service expectation was higher to start with. With regard to the ambience, the decor is nice and we loved our booth, but the AC was lacking, and the music was more of an FM radio vibe which detracted from our conversation. It was as if the restaurant isn’t quite sure who it wants to be yet from a brand perspective—or at least they aren’t yet sure on how to execute on it at the service level. Even without appetizers, alcohol or dessert, we still spent $35 each. We might have spent more, but dessert was never described, wine pairings never suggested when looking at the wine. That said, our food was hot and arrived on time.

I frequent Club Oceano quite often. This was the first time I can honestly say I had a not so pleasant experience. There was not many people in the restaurant. Our waitress was so and forgot to bring our salads. She didn’t remember until we were eating our main course.

It will probably be awhile before we go back.

We ate here for lunch on a Saturday. Everyone's food was very good, service was great. We were seated in the dining room section with windows and the area was dated, booth was not comfortable. The bar and dining room on the other side of the bar were in much better condition.

Girlfriend and I loved this place. The food was outstanding and our server was top notch. We had the swordfish and seabass. Both had great flavor and were cooked perfectly. The sides were good and plentiful. The Neptune Cocktail appetizer was well worth it. Excellent job all the way around.

Food was very good and the portions were outstanding. Great bread as well.
Couple of small issues, they forgot my side salad but given the size of the tuna tostados appetizer
and the bouillabaisse main course I ordered I told our server it was not needed. Also it would have been nice
to have been provided a bowl for the shells from my dish. My wife really enjoyed her strawberry walnut salad
with grilled shrimp. Overall the server and her trainee did their job as it should be done.
I thought the bill and the way the tip calculations were presented were a bit confusing. I wanted to give a specific
amount that would have been over 20% but seemed difficult to do.
We will definitely be back and have already recommended Club Oceano to others.

Our food was very good. The Cajun sauce on the shrimp and grits and on the trout is something to go back for. The balsamic vinaigrette was delicious. Our server was very nice and fairly attentive. It was just a very busy Father's Day. The prices are a bit high but the food seems worth it for special occasions.

Very disappointing...overpriced for the quality...salad was soaked in the dressing and was soggy like it was soaked in for 30 minutes..service was long but waitress was very nice...the swordfish is not worth the $33 price tag...the sauce tasted as if it had come from a can... the only good out of this is the bread and asparagus...will not return
