    Our first visit to this small, but excellent restaurant! We were greeted on the way in and thanked on the way out. Very personal service from the time we walked in. The food came out quickly, and had excellent taste. A very nice experience.

    Some of the very best seafood in the desert. Can’t believe it took us this long to get here. It’s definitely tucked away in a little mall but it’s worth the find. I can’t recommend the swordfish enough, usually tricky to find both fresh and cooked beautifully. Super lobster, scallops, sauces. Looking forward to making this a regular place.

    I usually love Oceans… this lower than normal rating comes with a few thoughts I hope they take note of: I ordered which was Scallops… s little tough… nothing extraordinary… and they need to have more than one alternative to the mixed vegetables that come with every dinner. Seafood is pricey. Some of the appetizers are very small portions for the money.

    Nice setting, excellent and professional wait staff. Pricey. My dish of scampi was a deep disappointment , flavorless, dry and almost impossible to remove from the shell- needed fingers and a spoon. The few veggies were under cooked, neither salt pepper butter or oil on them- terrible. My table mate had the sea “soup” and liked it. When he finished I used his broth to bring flavor to the scampi 🍤 I still may go back to see what the chef can do with fish, but a great dissatisfaction for our Anniversary dinner. Great wine list.
