Recently, we enjoyed a terrific evening of dining at Oceano Bistro in Clayton, MO!!
The dining space at Oceano is spacious, warm, and inviting, with a thoughtfully designed seating arrangement that allows guests to engage easily in conversation!
The menu offers a very appealing selection of appetizers, salads, and entrees. In addition, on this Sunday evening, a 3-course tasting menu was also available.
Our starter choices of seafood chowder and Caesar salads were delicious!
Our entrees were excellent, perfectly prepared, and included filet mignon, sea bass, tuna, and baked salmon!
Desserts of chocolate souffles and bread pudding with ice cream were fantastic indulgences!
Our waitress was very friendly, attentive without being intrusive, graciously accommodating and efficient!
We enthusiastically recommend the dining experience at Oceano Bistro!

We live in Houston, and when we visit St. Louis we always go to their Happy Hour for one of the best mussels I have ever had at a great price. We have been coming here for several years and have never been disappointed with the food nor the service. Wish they would open a place in Houston.

This place was busy on a Friday evening, but the service did reasonably well at keeping up. Fish and shellfish were pretty good, appetizers OK. If you're in Clayton, this is a good option

After just arriving from the airport to see family, we wanted to enjoy dinner in Clayton. The concierge at the hotel recommended Oceano as having fabulous seafood. She was right!

The restaurant was bustling but the found a table for three, even though we had no reservation. I would recommend you make a reservation!

I enjoyed their grilled salmon served on a medley of autumn fruits and root vegetables. Perfectly prepared salmon and very healthy accompaniments.

My husband ordered a seafood soffrito, which included a variety of chopped seafood in a lobster broth, with a risotto cake on the side. He found the dish to be excellent, flavorful, and delicious!

We selected the Paul Hobbs pinot noir to accompany our dinner. This pinot is excellent and we don’t often see it on wine lists. We love it and recommend it to friends if it is available at restaurants.... so enjoy!!

Love Oceano! Always great food and service! Came to celebrate my friend's birthday. Food was great, but not service. Everyone at the table was not impressed with Joseph's service. Not sure whether he had a bad day, or he is always like that. Waited too long for everything. Maybe he was not in a hurry because the gratuity was already included since we had a party >6. Had to ask other servers for assistance. The only thing that was quick was collecting the payment and tips.

We are so sorry that your service wasn't up to par this last time, and we will make sure this is passed along so it doesn't happen again.
