    We celebrated an anniversary at Oceans. The restaurant seated us at a very nice table and decorated our dessert to honor our anniversary. The food was delicious and the service consistent yet subtle. The space is beautiful.

    An absolutely fantastic dining experience. From beginning to end, the service was stellar. Food divine! We tried many items on the expansive menu and were pleased with each one. Considering how varied the menu is, the sushi was as good as the steak as good as the soup! Looking forward to returning. Thank you

    As has always been the case at Oceans the overall experience from the time I arrived at the hostess station up through and including dinner ordering and service was outstanding. Personalized treatment tailored to the need of me and my group. Every one of my guests who were first-timers at Oceans commented how great it was AND that they surely would be coming back.
