We had dinner at Oceano today. The service was great - from the valet parking guy to the hostess and the server, they were all very nice. The food was good but nothing special. We had a steamed mussel dish and a daily special shrimp dish. Average good food. They do serve Clementine's ice cream which is to die for!... More

I was in the area and decided to try Oceano for a late lunch. Although I arrived after their lunch hours, the manager Robert was so gracious and friendly. He allowed me to order off the lunch menu and he even helped me with the parking meter system in Clayton. I ordered a shrimp and veggie dish off of their... More

The food was excellent and the service was even better. Our server, Julia, was helpful, knowledgeable and charming. She went out of her way to help us get back to our hotel quickly and safely.

Happy hour at the bar was crowded, but not tight. Great happy hour specials(4-6:30). Too bad I didn't arrive earlier. The kitchen is in plain view, which I like. Plenty of tables with enough distance that you wouldn't be disturbed if it is something you don't care to be near. Service was pleasant. Six of us were served almost simultaneously.... More

Husband and I ate here for a nice anniversary dinner. Edward D. took great care of us, made some great dinner recommendations too when I was stumped for a side to go with the Truffle Scallops. I choose the grilled portobello mushrooms. Yummy! Husband had the grouper and we both had salads and a glass of wine. No dessert for... More

Fennel scallops were delicious and tender like butter and served in butter. Attentive staff. I would go back there.

I dined early in the week so I assume that is why it was slow. This was my first visit to Oceano (and 2nd visit to STL area). The bartender was solid, great service and convo and has a good pour. Friendly clientele and a great restaurant team makes for a solid stop. I had the branzino as the main.... More
