    My wife had the prawns and I had the swordfish. Both meals were excellent, flavors and cooking were excellent. The prawns were the largest I have seen; looked like lobster tails. They also provided a birthday desert for my wife that we shared. The serves was also excellent. It did get a little expensive with salads and a bottle of wine.

    We always enjoy Oceans. I usually order Prawns (which are huge, fresh, plump and amazing…but this last time I ordered the sandabs which were perfectly prepared with lemon and capers making them delicate and delicious. Other diners had the absolutely marvelous Paella…the best we’ve ever tasted in fact outside of Spain. Also recommended is the veal piccata. Superb!

    I read many of the reviews on OpenTable before booking and trying this restaurant. We were truly impressed and remarkably we agree with the most favorable reviews you will find here. The whiteboard presentation of the specials is a bit quirky but very practical. I can never hear fully and then remember the specials in other restaurants due to noise and variety. This is a simple and effective solution. I did order the barramundi and it was fabulous. The atmosphere is very nice. Low lights with specific lighting on individual tables so no pulling your phone out to read the menu. Oysters on the have shell were glistening fresh and sweet. I know this establishment will not disappoint.

    We have been regular customers at oceans for many years. This restaurant is a jewel in the desert. It never ceases to be a wonderful dining experience. The quality of the food, the portions and the pricing (since everything these days seems to have gotten a bit more expensive ) remains consistently perfection. I haven’t had Prawns anywhere else in the Desert or LA for that matter that are as delicious and perfectly prepared. Even the martinis are perfection! We highly recommend this tucked away special eatery in Palm Springs.

    If you are looking for great service with a varied menu, this place is great. Unfortunately we are from Washington state, and we found the quality of most of the seafood we ate to be less tasty than we would have liked it to be.Of everything that we ordered one of the best things that we had was dessert! However, my husband had the Ahi Tuna, and that really was a very enjoyable dish!

    The fish was good and the entree was a nice potion. But the steamed clams were way too salty. Could not even choke down the liquid that they came with. Salt overpowered the delicate clam taste. Will go here again but will not order the clams.

    Terrific restaurant! Staff was great. Good selections on menu - had the calamari, Chilean sea bass (daily special), and swordfish. Everything was extremely flavorful and delicious. Outside seating was great - heaters were just right. We knew it was a fantastic hidden gem when the staff greeted other regular customers nearby - definitely would return when back in PS again!
