This was such a wonderful, date night, spot to find! My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our table outside, dinner options, wine, and the friendly staff!! The price was absolutely worth the entree and portions. Our server was especially well versed and personable. Definitely recommend for a romantic dinner for two!!

I was told that this is the best seafood restaurant in the area. Boy, we’re they wrong!
The sea-bass arrived uncooked (cold on the inside). Very plain vegetables, rather unseasoned Nd boring. The mashed potato was OK. Service was good and they did correct the undercooked dish. Sorry to say, I can not recommend it. Perhaps after the COVID goes away and we can be served inside. Outdoor area has lots of street noise.

This is our favorite seafood and "neighborhood restaurant. We eat here several times a year and the food quality and service are always to our liking. The location is a bit hard to find but the search is worth it. Outdoor dining is very pleasant.

Due to Covid restrictions, we were dining on the sidewalk in front of the next door store front. I think the staff did the best I could under those conditions.

The freshest of fish; the friendliest of service; and the most reasonable prices for fresh fish in the area combine to ensure that a visit to Oceans is a pleasant, warm, and casual experience that serves to remind us that one CAN enjoy fresh fish in an enjoyable atmosphere that doesn't have to break the budget!

My wife treated me to a Birthday dinner. I had the lobster, and it did not disappoint me- it was great! My wife had the filet, and while it was done, there was no char on it. Maybe they use the hot water method? In any evert, she did not enjoy the steak. All said, we will return.

I’ve been looking for a new seafood restaurant and this came highly recommended. They were offering raw oysters so I ordered a dozen which arrived on ice but in fact were room temperature. They were ok but nothing to rave about. The escargot was pure butter and garlic but no flavor other than that. Ocean’s staff is sincere but clearly pulled in too many ways.
It’s a solid B but given how infrequently we all go out these days, I was looking for something more.

Oceans provides a pleasant and value-driven dining experience, and it keeps getting better. Visited by newcomers and long-time loyal customers, alike, a delicious meal and friendly service in pleasant surroundings can always be anticipated with confidence. Recent adjustments to their patio dining provide even more choices for guests, and the fish is ALWAYS fresh, reasonably-priced, and delicious!

Ocean's is our "neighborhood" restaurant. The food is always delicious. The owner is always on site and is very outgoing and welcoming. Family owned and run. The site is a little bit hidden but well worth the search.

Vacation in Palm Springs

A very welcoming atmosphere and very attentive service - pre dinner drinks, meal, dessert and wine.

The Mediterranean salads were cold and delicious. My scallops and my wife’s lobster were prepared perfectly.
The tiramisu capped off a great dining experience.

Highly recommend!

The food is very good. The servers were very attentive. I rated the ambience a 3 not because of the restaurant, but they have done the best the can with outdoor seating during the pandemic. I am sure I will rate them much higher when we can do inside dining. This restaurant is a hidden gem, so don't miss it.

Pretty mediocre restaurant. Mashed potato served cold. When they asked how was the food we mentioned it. Waiter did not apologize but suggested we told him sooner. Otherwise my daughter cooks scallops much better and she is not a cook

Dinner was awesome. The table ordered paella, lobster penne scallops and oysters. All excellent! Cocktails also excellent.
They had air conditioning outside so very pleasant. They have few tables due to this ridiculous shut down so make reservations.

Excellent food and attentive service, however given the current Covid situation, with only outdoor seating available, main drawback was lack of misting system, and the fact that the seating overlooks a parking lot, though the parking lot was somewhat screened by plants. Probably deserves more than a "3", but not quite a "4"....perhaps a 3.8 rating would be appropriate. Would not hesitate to dine there again, but would avoid particularly hot weather.
