From the greeting as we entered (the owner, Amer, welcomed us with a handshake at the door!) to the manager's welcome as we we seated (his name is Robert) to the terrific table service we enjoyed, Oceano Bistro has customer service that exceeds any other in recent experience. The food (try the crab cakes - mouthwatering!) was superb. A business... More

From the time we walked into this Clayton restaurant, I loved the layout and ambiance. A nice bar area, most diners were at booths and not crammed into the space like some places. also decent lighting, so I didn't need to get out my phone to read the menu. The service was good, but it took a long time for... More

We found a parking spot just around the corner about 50 yards from the restaurant. Our party of four were seated in one of the circular booth table, which fitted us quite comfortably. We were able to talk quite normally as the restaurant was not busy on this Tuesday evening. We started with the English Chowder, which we found was... More

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.

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
