Book your reservation early! I waited too long and still had to wait for the table I wanted.

But it was worth it! The food and drinks were fantastic! Service was on point!

Had an anniversary dinner here. Food was ok, service was very poor. Server was even rude. Great location and ambiance but did not meet my expectations.

Great tasting food. Lovely location. We sat at the second floor and the view was fantastic. The service was very slow, even though the dining area was about 70% occupied. The noise level was extremely uncomfortable and painful at times; a party left due to this. I had to yell most of the time in order to be able to communicate. I don’t usually measure sound levels but I was curious because I felt it was a hazardous noise level. Using the Decibel X application, the room registered an average of 83.2 dB with peaks of 92.5 dB. They should do a little sound treatment on the room since their glass walls are very sound reflective and there is a lot of echo. If uncomfortable sound level and wait time is not an issue, then I highly recommend it.

We enjoyed Oceano for the 2nd time. They have done a remarkable job coming back from the hurricanes and I applaud their hard work. We just celebrated our 30th anniversary there with our family and it was terrific. I cant wait until we come back again...

Came here for our last night in Puerto Rico and it was amazing. It was the best food and service we’ve had the whole trip. We made a reservation and got seated right on the ocean front deck. The apps, entrees, and dessert was all delicious. 10/10 recommend!

Overall the food is delicious, unfortunately they only had a Holiday Menu. All of the food items listed on OpenTable were not available. This was upsetting because we want to especially for the Paella. The menu was limited; and there weren’t any substitutions allowed. The view was spectacular, go for sunset around 6pm. The drinks were strong and delicious! I would recommend calling before going to ensure they have the menu available and you definitely need a reservation for dinner!

The atmosphere is lively, lovely and welcoming. The food was by far the best! We had the ropa vieja special, ceviche and shrimps for our apps followed by Churrasaco and scallops. We ate it until the last bite! They were careful to look out for our gluten allergies. A must try when in San Juan!

Took my mother for her birthday and she loved it. Guillian was outstanding and answered every question we had. They didnt have all the menu options available. I had the Pork and they gave me a longaniza risotto instead of the pigeon peas risotto but it was still great. It had a perfect view by the beach. Will definitely go back.

Sorry,this is the 3rd time in a row that I have been disappointed here. A $90 seafood platter should not have shrimp that smell and taste like bleach and a lobster tail that was mush. Obviously a bad lobster. I don't send food back so i get my meal when the other 3 people in our party are done eating before I get mine. It should NEVER have been served. I give up. It used to be our go to place. No longer. If management wants to hear (again) about the other 2 times I'll be glad to tell them again. It doesn't seem to do any good so I won't go into detail here.

We visit this restaurant every year during the holidays. The food, atmosphere, location and service are top notch. Kudos for having a Plan B if it rained during dining Oceanside. Mark and his team make sure everyone has a good experience. Make this one of your must visits when in Condado - San Juan.

The food and service is fantasric, however the ambience with the windows closed is absolutely intolerable. We were seated on the second floor. Windows were closed due to an earlier shower. Simply put, it is impossible to hear. There is nothing to dalpen the noise! Even the wait staff had to lean in to take our order. If you can be seated on the ground floor beachside deck, Oceano will surely please. Anywhere else, you may not be as pleased with your visit.

Océano was an absolutely amazing experience. Our server Giovanni made sure that everything came out perfectly, had an amazing personality, and was overly generous.

We had requested a table on the patio and were given our choice of a seat, but many tables were reserved for later. A brief shower forced the staff to react quickly and they placed us inside at a table for our main course. Shortly after finishing this plate, Giovanni asked if we would like to return to our original spot outside, which of course we accepted as the view and the fresh ocean air was amazing. Overall 10/10 from an experience, atmosphere and service standpoint.

As for the food, it was astounding! The calamari and ceviche was a great opener before we cleansed our palette with the house salad. For the main course the scallops were great and my date had the sea bass which came with high praise. We finished off the night with tres con leche which was also astounding.

Finally the cocktail and wine pairings were on point. The El Perfecto was everything I needed. One note is that to really get the most out of the drink is to let it set for a couple of minutes once it is delivered so the cinnamon stick can work it’s magic. Giovanni did an amazing job pairings wines to each of our dinners and then as a special treat provided us with champagne to close out the night.

In all, I think this is one of if not the best food experiences I have had in my life. Thank you to Giovanni, Marc, and all of the staff. That was awesome!

My boyfriend and I had lunch at Oceano, my favorite restaurant in San Juan. We ordered shrimp flatbread and surf and turf salad. Both were excellent. Because I was not hungry, I just had 2 shrimps and salad and decided to take the steak to go. We were given a bag of food and we left the restaurant to go back to Rio Grande where we were staying while visiting Puerto Rico from New York. When I opened the bag to put the food away, I was completely disgusted to find that I was given someone else’s half chewed up hamburger and fries instead of my steak. I called the restaurant and spoke with the manager. The restaurant manager apologized, took my information and assured me that someone was going to contact me to refund me, as we were not able to go back to the restaurant. It has been nearly one week and no one from the restaurant bothered to contact me. I guess I am going to have to contact my credit card company to dispute the charge. This had never happened in the past at any restaurants. I guess going forward, I have to make sure that I don’t get someone else’s leftover food when I dined at this restaurant. I am still disgusted thinking about it. Very disappointing experience.
