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.

First time here. They didn't have what I wanted and I appreciate the waiter helping me out. Especially since I don't eat seafood. It was my fiancee bday and she loves it. The chicken was mouth watering.

Because of the virus it was outside dining, however they made it very personal for every table. Ordered the Caribbean lobster. This was the largest lobster I have ever seem, but was the delicious I've eaten. This plate came with potatoes and a veggie for only $55.00. Will definitely come back again to try another wonderful dish.

Awesome experience here. So glad that we gave this place a try. The catfish was amazing. And their garlic olive oil dip with the bread is memorable also.
Great variety on the menu. And great service.
We will absolutely return.

Great food and attentive service. I highly recommend this restaurant, which is kind of hidden in plain view in a strip mall across from the Cathedral City Target.

Though we constantly dine out and live in the area, this was our first visit to Oceans. Having spent a lot of time along the Mediterranean (including the Adriatic), when I realized that the menu and the "buzz" was consistent with some of the best experiences to be found in that region, I was nearly euphoric. Excellent food, extremely well-served, and in a friendly and convivial atmosphere, as well. Light, fresh flavors seasoned "just enough," with generous portions and very reasonable prices.

Significantly (and appropriately), during this time of social distancing and frequent hand washing and social distancing, it was VERY apparent that Oceans far exceeds the requirements to ensure that their guests and staff are guarded against any untoward exposure. This careful attention to detail is reassuring and comforting -- and should be recognized!

We're very eager to return. It's a great place!

I've eaten at Oceans many times and am always delighted and never disappointed. The food is delicious, expertly prepared and beautifully presented. They provide a wide variety of food including seafood and landfood and vegetarian options. It' a class act all the way. And during this pandemic time, they thoroughly follow CDC recommendations, and then some! Oceans is one of the best places to eat in Pam Springs. Make your reservation!

We were pleasantly surprised with the location , service, and very delicious meal. We are winter visitors and checked restaurants on the computer looking for a desirable menu. The menu t Oceans was diverse and very pleasing! The presentation was excellent and service efficient. We will return for another evening of dining!

We were seated right away and the waiters were very attentive & helpful. We were not rushed and had plenty of time to eat and catch up. I could tell by the conversations between waiters & clientele that they had a lot of repeat business. I would go there again & have recommended it to friends.

This was the worst meal we experienced in the valley. Not only were my wife's and my preferred choices "not available," which we learned after we ordered at 7 p.m. on a Saturday; but the choices we did order were unremarkable and tasteless (catfish) and a strange consistency,m perhaps underdone (swordfish). The accompanying mixed vegetables and mashed potatoes had no taste. We'll never return. The "do not recommend" below speaks for itself.

The Food and the level of Service was great. Very friendly and attentive! The fish and pasta dishes were great and done to perfection. They have great appetizers. The fried Oysters and the Escargot. are fabulous. A must visit. I will keep you coming back for more. My hats go off to this restaurant.

The only thing lacking with Oceans is a beautiful setting. It's a neighborhood place, and whether eating inside or outside (next to the parking lot), it's still always a great meal. The fish is prepared perfectly, as are the vegetables....never mushy or nearly-raw. The service is always good. It's not an inexpensive meal, but for a delicious fish dinner, it's a great place to eat.
