We dined recently at Oceano Bistro and had, quite simply, the best meal we've ever had in St Louis. The staff was amazingly accommodating. I called and asked to move up our 7:15 reservation and was pleased they could arrange an earlier arrival, and when...More

Disappointing dinner given it was New Year’s Eve. No celebration greetings or enthusiasm by staff ! Items off menu including no coffee ! Indifferent staff. Should have been a more joyous evening.
