We never would have found Oceans by accident, and if we had seen it, likely would have just driven on by. It is very unassuming from the outside. But we were referred there by a couple we met in another restaurant, and wow, are we glad! Oceans is pretty small, tucked away in a strip mall behind a McDonalds. Inside,... More

The Coachella Valley boasts a plethora of Italian restaurants, some great, others only so-so. Oceans has carved a niche for itself in a classy corner of a Cathedral City strip mall across from Trader Joe's. Fish is the specialty here, evinced by the aquarium in the center of the cozy dining room and the nautical motifs on the walls. Portions... More

Oceans is a small restaurant so be wise and get a reservation. They use Opentable. In addition to their regular menu -- which has an interesting variety of seafood dishes and salads -- they have a fresh fish "Board". On this chalkboard they list all of the day's fresh fish and specials. So if you like seafood, you are in... More

Service was not the best, but at least we were not rushed. Food was ok but not the best I ever had. We sat in the back room and saw a roach walk across the floor. The waiter killed it but seeing it ruined the rest of the meal.

We were a large group and the waiter managed very well including organizing all the different bills. I ordered the prawns. They came with some vegetables and mashed potatoes. There were three large prawns. The problem was that they were overlooked and ended up quite rubbery. It seemed like a better choice would have been fish as others at the... More

relaxed but elegant atmosphere, even at lunch when people usually are in a rush. Fresh, delicious items- lobster salad, oysters clams and also items suited to the carnivore

But, I have to. You see, last year I went to Oceans and it was WONDERFUL. I had sand dabs, my mom had prawns, we sat in the front seating area, it was quiet and lovely. Excellent food. We raved about it all year and promised to take our other seasonal PS friends there this winter, as a treat. So... More

I have had the pleasure of visited this great restaurant twice, within the last week. I have had the salmon both times. The meal came piping hot, moist, flaky and wonderful flavor. Another had the lobster salad, which was equally delightful. The service was perfect. My brother frequents Oceans often. We highly recommend this well kept secret.

It had been a while since I'd eaten at Oceans, but I'm glad I returned. The sand dabs that I ordered were delicious, lightly breaded in what I'd call a piccata style. They were served on top of a nice array of steamed vegetables that included a dab of mashed potatoes. One of the friends I was with raved about... More
