    We dined at Oceano Bistro for lunch on Valentines Day 2024. As an appetizer, we split the crab cake salad. The crab cakes (two) were outstanding - there was only enough "filler" to hold the crab together and to create a light golden crust. I had the Hawaiian sandwich, which consisted of a beautiful portion of blackened sea bass with delicious condiments, and served with fantastic garlic aioli fries. My husband enjoyed the trout. We would be remiss to forget to mention that our server, Anna, was very attentive and knowledgeable of both the food and wine menus. She is a lovely young lady, and we enjoyed her very much. We strongly recommend this restaurant.

    When we arrived at the reservation, the host said we have to wait 15 minutes. The second host said we have a table right away. We sat down and waited at least 10 minutes to get a cocktail. The restaurant was busy and it always is, I had the crab chowder, which is very good I had asked the waitress for some bread. She said it was just coming out of the oven never got it. It then took another 15 minutes before she took her order. I asked one of the managers for bread and about 10 minutes later just after our entrées were delivered we got the bread,we are regulars at the restaurant. We hate to see poor service, both of our entrées were good, but the poor service ruined the evening

    The food was great. The manager Robert remembered us from the art festival in the summer. They were booked and asked us to return with a drink in him. He honored that for my boyfriend’s birthday on Saturday. He continued to check on us during the evening. We will definitely be back.

    We loved our birthday dinner at Oceano Bistro - the very delicious and well-presented food, our very friendly, attentive, sweet and helpful server, the very nice and helpful receptionist who got us the table we wanted on the porch, other staff who greeted us and helped us, and the amazing (free) birthday cheesecake. I ordered halibut - one of the best pieces I ever had - and ordered it with the sweet potato, squash and brussel sprouts preparation - yummy. My husband loved the seafood dish with shrimp, mussels and a large scallop. We had Caesar salads and rolls with olive oil, good wine for me and very good gin and tonic for Mark.

    Always a good meal at Oceano. We have been going there for many years, and we have never had a bad meal. The staff is well trained. The food selection is excellent. My last visit was for a business lunch. I believe that this is the best place for a business lunch in St. Louis.

    Oceano Bistro is our go-to place when we want a delicious seafood dinner in a romantic setting. The staff, from waiters to the owner, are uniformly polite, cheerful, and eager to please. Only one quibble -- valet parking has to be requested in advance by phone. There is no permanent valet parking stand out front, as there was in the past. We will go back again, and recommend this place to our friends.
