Scouting out stores we came upon Oceans at dinner time. Lacrema wine for two, oysters for me lady, which she loved. I had the shrimp tomato salad which had way too much balsamic vinegar for my taste. Garlic olive oil accompanied bread okay. Shrimp and scallop pasta dish was fine, but they said kitchen was too busy to do shared... More

In a strip mall across 111 from the Target shopping plaza. Small, about 8 or 9 tables inside and as many outside. Lots of staff though so service was great. Modest wine list but still several by the glass so you're likely to find something that works. Hearts of palm and shrimp & tomato salads. Abalone was expensive at $45... More

Good seafood at a reasonable price. Not fancy, just good food and service. Fish and chips was very good.

Father and I are avid seafood fans. While a bit too pricey for every week, Oceans is certainly our go to for company or just a "Gotta have seafood" dinner out. Scallops and fresh fishes are not only high quality but prepared perfectly for each type. If you're looking for a special evening or a rare treat, Oceans is the... More

A mid-afternoon visit for a late lunch/dinner was very memorable. Seafood so fresh you would swear you were dock-side somewhere on the coast! Waiter was very helpful, the chalkboard menu had every thing from farm-raised abalone to filet mignon and the luncheon menu was sufficient for anyone. The restaurant has just the right ambiance to be like the traditional neighborhood... More

Checked out the restaurants on tripadvisor and settled on this one. We were not disappointed, the escargots were delicious, the fish was cooked to perfection, the service excellent ( the waiter aware of our needs but not pushy), and we could have a conversation without having to speak too loudly to each other ( a bonus these days).

This Bistro is hidden in a strip mall off Highway 111. It is intimate and a bit romantic. Look for it and go there. You won't be disappointed. The surprise is they actually have Abalone. Yes, farm raised and pricy but delicious. Abalone is hard to find on a menu anywhere. Splurge, and try it. There are other exotic seafood... More

Based on the reviews on this site, I had Oceans on our must do list during our recent trip to Palm Springs; but, found it over rated. We went there for lunch and had one of that day's specials, lobster caesar salad. The dish cost $21.00 and consisted of romaine lettuce with the lobster pieces on top. We thought it... More
