    Great ambiance and superb service put together spell an enjoyable dinner experience. Cooking needs improvement: risotto should be more dente and filet mignon should not be swimming in a pool of dark sauce.

    Server (Josh) was horrible. He had no idea what was gluten free or could be made gluten free…and wasn’t real interested in finding out for us. He literally said “what did you have the last time you were here…you could just have that” We asked him about a couple things and he never came back to tell us. Recommend training on allergies and Celiac. It is unfortunate the manager came over and said I know everything that can be made gluten free. Well, that is a shame you failed to set your servers up for success by training them. I could go on and on about the servers attitude, impatience, lack of concern, etc, etc. We walked out with appetizer and drinks on the table. Don’t think we’ll be back to this one.

    Overall, a very enjoyable brunch. Hollandaise sauce tasted a bit like nacho cheese (not bad just different than I expected). It was also cold, but the rest of the eggs Benedict was good.

    Been wanting to go here for a while. Was o great opportunity to go and celebrate our 27th anniversary! Wanted a bottle of champagne but the didn’t have the one we wanted that was on the menu. The shrimp and the crab cake appetizer were both delicious. The sauce with the shrimp was definitely 5stars. The salmon and risotto my wife order was good. I ordered the halibut and it was very over cooked. I actually thought it was cod. To be a seafood centered restaurant I wish it was better. We also got the pork chop to share and it also was well well done instead of the medium we ordered. I did let the server know after not saying anything about the halibut. Overall was good. Planning on giving them another try in the near future.

    I had a reservation on Open table where reservations looked wide open. We arrived on time. Waited for 15 minutes u til we were seated. During interim we were seated at bar tables but no server came to our table as we were told. Sat down, drinks arrived at 8:15 ( reservation was at 7:15) Our waiter didn’t pay much attention to us. We stacked our plates for him to get him to notice us. He gave us extra bread ( thanks). The pork chops were over cooked , ordered medium. Salmon was over cooked, ordered medium. The ravioli dish was perfect. We did get the pork chop removed from bill. There seemed to be plenty of staff on hand. People that came in after us, dined and left before us. We had bad service. We have been to Oceano many times and have always enjoyed ourselves. My sister came in from out of the country and we wanted to kickoff the visit with a killer meal. We are glad she ordered the ravioli. ☺️

    We were seated right next to the door so we ate dinner in our coats. The appetizers were brought out with our entrees. The food was good. Our service could have been better. The restaurant was very busy. Sitting us next to a door when it was freezing was inexcusable. The place need a buffer between the outside and inside doors to keep the cold air out.

    Very delicious food, service was excellent, we were on the “porch” with very few other tables—very quiet. Only downside were two oysters which were a disappointment, tiny. But the other 10 were outstanding; I mentioned it to the manager who offered to get two more for us. We declined, things happen and we just wanted to let the staff know. It is expensive but that’s the cost of eating out in 2022. My husband got two meals out of his trout; my scallops were perfectly cooked in a truly lick-worth sauce. I ate every last bite. With few restaurants offering dinner on Sunday evening, perfect for a special meal, quieter than a Friday or Saturday. Recommend highly.

    We had asked for a 4-top even though there were only 2 of us. My reservation was for a 4 top and I wrote in the notes that we need a 4 top because we order a lot of wine (and food!). Needless to say, the hostess was not very nice about it, and was finally able to find a small (not a 4 top) table for us. She said they were very busy and that's the best she could do. They put us on the veranda which was very chilly. Needless to say, our table was quite crowded as we got started with two apps that were served in very large plates on a very small 2' square table that also had to accommodate our 2 wine glasses a piece (4 total) plus a water glass and our two bread plates and the bread and oil dishes. Do you see where I am going with this story? We each ordered an entree plus a side dish to share. After we were seated we noticed that they sat another couple (yes, just 2 people) at a table behind us in the corner and they were at a 4 top! Unlike us, they only ordered one glass of wine a piece (not 2 bottles of wine that we ordered), one appetizer that they shared and an entree and dessert (that they shared). We were not happy campers at the end of the night even though they came by and offered to reseat us later, but who is going to move once you sit down and start eating?? I cannot believe they even offered that. Enough said!

    Service was terrible and food came out incorrect. It was remedied but waiting another 15 minutes after waiting more than 1 hour for our food was ridiculous. It was brunch and eggs shouldn’t take that long! Our previous visit for dinner was fantastic.

    Ed our waiter did an excellent job on the wine, very engaging. He’s been a waiter for many years and certainly knows the service business. The warm bread was wonderful, But I probably could have done without as the portions are large. Small salad is larger than most and very good.

    A lovely evening with friends after a Rep play at COCA. Food was great and service superb. The only item of concern was the closeness of the tables. We were seated in a corner near the front entrance and there was less than six inches between the back of one of our chairs and an a chair from an adjoining table. I'm no architect or interior designer, but perhaps a closer look at the available space and a bit of creativity could improve the intimacy and privacy of all patrons and their conversations.
