Went last Saturday night and the food was mediocre- not like the outstanding meals we have always had there in the past. The oysters Rockefeller were watery and tasteless, the octopus very rubbery and over salted, the Dover Sole overcooked, the scallops lacking flavor. Desserts...More

I came to this restaurant for a birthday party, and I really liked the fresh seafood dishes. The prices are high, but the quality was impressive. There is a large parking lot outside.

Came here spur of the moment, we were seated right away. Five people and all five dishes were delicious. All fish dishes excellent as was filet mignon. Galaktoboureko is a must for dessert.

We visited the restaurant for our anniversary after it was recommended by several people. So admittedly we came with high expectations! We started with fried calamari which was good. My husband ordered scallops which were wonderful! I decided on a special which was a snapper...More

I wore nice denim slacks and a pretty blouse and was treated very well. I don't think there's a dress code.

As many have indicated, best to reserve. They will know when and how many...takes the guesswork out of it for both sides.

This is the story of the Panteleakis family and their dedication to what they know best - what they share most - what they love. Ask anyone who has been here.They will tell you about the home made bread, rolled and baked by the hands of Peter, the owner. The same man who you'll see in the kitchen prepping and cooking alongside the kitchen staff and then soon after mingling among the guests making sure each client is not merely satisfied but ecstatic with his/her dining experience. They'll also describe the son Nikos who would be behind the bar serving signature cocktails, as much as he'd be seen in the kitchen working as line manager inspecting each plate or even on the floor serving the hot plates to their tables. Some will speak of the wife /mother behind the scenes, taking care of the operations while tending to all the details for the private events reservations. As anyone who's been here will tell you, Oceanos is all about family, because at Oceanos you are 'family'.
