There are a lot of good restaurants in Clayton but Oceano is the best! Food is always very fresh and delicious. Great presentation of each dish. Their salads are appetizing ( arugula salad and tomato salad are my favorite). As for the seafood dishes ... they are sinfully good. Atmosphere is exquisite and elegant.

Looking for a new exciting option for celebrating Valentine's Day, we chose Oceano Bistro because we love seafood and yet we live here in the middle of the nation so far from oceans. Oceano Bistro cooks with fresh seafood flown in daily. This upscale restaurant is located in the financial district west of downtown St. Louis. Because we chose to... More

It's okay. You end up getting a meal that you're not unhappy with. Servings are massive in good old midwestern fashion. There's lots of butter, cheese and cream to keep St Louis diners happy. They very astutely include a Fitness Menu that means you can avoid much of the fatty fare on offer. Visually it's a bit of a mess.... More

I had filet Mignon and my husband had seafood, the steak was cooked to perfection and just about melted in my mouth, the seafood ( which is flown in daily) was wonderful... More

I ordered my food to go due to a foot injury. This is a quaint little spot that looks authentic and cozy on the inside. They have a full bar with a friendly host of employees. My food was ready in a very short amount of time and I enjoyed a very well prepared martini while I waited. I would... More

Gorgeous presentation, wonderful, attentive waiting staff, and absolutely delicious food!! Crab cakes are to die for, and the ravioli topped with scallops, crab meat, tomatoes and mushrooms was scrumptious!

This was a very lively and special restaurant for Christmas Eve. The martinis and Manhattan were perfect and generously sized. The crab cake appetizers of three were scrumptious and could easily be shared. The same cannot be said of the tuna appetizer that was more greens tha tuna. Raw oysters were delicious. Our entrees of cod, salmon and a seafood... More

The fiance and i like trying new resturaunts, this one is very good, price is up there, but worth it. Reservations can be a little tricky to get, but worth it. The oysters were very good, the chowder was excellent. The scallops had excellent taste, but had something occasionally crunchy about them. I would recommend to anyone wanting a good... More
