    Everything was incredible from the moment we arrived. We were given a choice of dining areas and opted for the quieter rear dining room. The menu was almost overwhelming with so many great selections. They were very accommodating in making modifications for our rather particular group. 100% on the food - we were all delighted. We look forward to returning soon. Don’t miss out on the fried oysters if they are on the special board!

    Terrific fish & seafood restaurant in Cathedral City. Everything is very fresh, lots of choices, and the service is excellent. Great pride in this place from the entire staff. Minor quibbles: dessert was nothing special and the veggies on every plate were quite underdone. Not cheap, but a very good value for the price. Would I go back? Absolutely!

    We always enjoy our dining experience at Oceans. Most of the entrees were very good. The Lobster Pasta was a bit heavy and we will probably not order it again. The service was impeccable. I think Oceans is still the best seafood restaurant around.

    Wow!! Looking for a great seafood restaurant and was not disappointed, between the ambiance and the excellent service it was a perfect evening. Hubby had the Chilean Sea Bass, sister had scallops, and other sis and I had the Prawns. Everything was cooked perfectly and we really enjoyed our evening.

    Wife and I always head to Oceans for the best seafood and atmosphere in the valley. We have gone here for the past 13 years and it never disappoints. How is that even possible?? Every business disappoints once in awhile…..but not Oceans. From the appetizers to the mains, it’s our go to place. Thanks again for making our “date night” something to remember.

    Freshest lobster ever, shipped in from Santa Monica, and cooked to perfection. Butterflied shrimp were fabulous too. We ate far too much but couldn't resist! The waiter and assistant were very friendly and we had a great evening on the patio.

    I have been going to Oceans for many years and have never been disappointed in the food or service. I used to go with my husband until he passed a few years ago and now I go with 2 lady friends who absolutely love it as much as we did. Love the fried oysters, the baramundi, and the clams! I would definitley recommend. Has a friendly European Cafe appeal.

    The breaded oysters were outstanding, as was the Chilean Sea Bass. Chef has a bit of a heavy hand with garlic, so if you don’t like that, you may want to ask for a lighter one. Service was attentive but not intrusive, and the dining room was warmly lit.
