Miised a bit this timeAll was excellent as expected in terms of service and menu. The Char was just a bit underdone but not enough to send it back. This is definitely a special occassion place for us and great for a pre-shiow meal at the Guthrie.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWay over-priced!my comment when the food came to the table. This is it for $30????5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMMaybe an off night?My review of this place would best be described as mixed. The food we had was all very good, however there wasn't much of it. They have a pretty small menu to began with, only 6-7 seafood entrees. The waiter informed us AFTER we ordered drinks that 3 of the items weren't available, five minutes later he came back to inform us that 3 more weren't available. So if we wanted seafood the only choice was soup or Sturgeon. I had the Sturgeon and it was excellent if not on the small side, but it would have been nice for us to be able to try some other things. The appetizers were all very tasty but also very small, really not good for sharing. That said I'd probably go back but I might check ahead to see if they actually have fish.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat foodGreat food, atmosphere and service.

Jamie is great!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMMy only disappointment isMy only disappointment is waiting so long to try Sea Change after moving to the area and thinking there is no place to go for seafood in MSP. One of the best meals and eating experiences we have ever had. Our waiters understanding of every detail of the menu made you want to try everything. A new favorite place thanks to both food and service. Without both it just doesn't matter4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOur first visit to Sea ChangeOur first visit to Sea Change could not have been better. The ambiance of the space was nice and surprisingly quiet dispite the open nature of the dining area. Our service (Robb) was superb, with the perfect balance of subdued professionalism coupled with friendly knowledge and appropriate advice. All food courses were great. The razor clams casino were uniquely prepared and presented. Our fish dishes (char and haddock) were excellent, as were the desserts. Sea Change is one of the very few restuarants in Twin Cities that serves farro (as a side for sharing) and the awesome "Olivares" as a dessert wine. If you dine at Sea Change, you owe it to yourself to have both farro and Olivares. We'll be back to Sea Change soon.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Oyster Bar with the "mystery"The Oyster Bar with the "mystery" wine pairings was exceptionally fun. It was nice to be able to buy one of many types of oysters and compare tastes while comparing the companion wines. I had no idea that there was such a wide variety of taste and texture in oysters so this was educational as well.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMTastyEverything was very tasty. Definitely for raw sea food lovers.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a lovely time diningWe had a lovely time dining at Sea Change before attending a performance at the Guthrie. The food is artfully prepared with an eye to delight all aspects of your palate with a variety of flavors and textures. My husband remarked that the octopus was the best he has ever eaten, and he is still talking about the duck and pork rillettes entree. Paul, our server, provided polished and seamless service, and demonstrated thorough knowledge of the menu items and their preparation. This was our first visit to Sea Change, but not our last! Thank you for a memorable meal!4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe always have delicious foodWe always have delicious food and good service but this time it was exceptional. Can't compliment Sea Change enough!4/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was outstanding. ProbablyFood was outstanding. Probably the best fish I've ever had and I lived on the coast in NC/VA for decades. I was very impressed. We will go back.
We went after the show at the Guthrie started and got a great table, excellent service, to go with the wonderful food. What a great restaurant. Looking forward to going back in the summer for more river views.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Night @ Sea ChangeGreat food with a very helpful staff. Everything we ordered was perfect and we cannot wait to go back. I highly recommend if you are in the mood for great sea food.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Special at Sea ChangeEvery visit I've made to Sea Change has been of the highest quality. My Tuesday evening visit was no exception. Our server Paul took us on a raw bar tour that was beyond satisfying to nearly transcendent. I have not eaten seafood for very long, so I wanted to try new things. He made wonderful recommendations and guided us perfectly to an exquisite and healthful meal. It was an adventure that I won't forget. I wanted to treat a friend to a rare and special evening and that is exactly what we got.4/9/2013 12:00:00 AMFasntastic!We always eat at Sea Change before seeing a show at the Guthrie. Everything about the restaurant is wonderful! The Albarino wine is fantastic. I had the arctic char, as usual, and it was delicious. My boyfriend had the sea bass which was also very good. We shared the beet salad (again as usual!), and I had the chocolate desert and my boyfriend had the lime pudding desert. The salad and deserts were spectacular, too! The service is always wonderful. This restaurant is highly recommended.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BestAbsolutely one of the best dining experiences ever! Fabulous restaurant with knowledgeable unpretentious staff. Keep up the great work!!!!!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect BirthdayI brought my husband there for his birthday. We had been there once before and he loved the food. I noted on Open Table that it was his birthday and he was greeted with happy birthday at the host stand, by our waiter and our buser. The chef signed a handmade card and gave him an adorable box of butter cookies.
The food was fantastic! But be aware that its about fabulous food and not quantities. Our waiter was fun and helpful with choices. We had a beautiful view of the Stone Arch Bridge. It was very romantic. And, to top it off, we grabbed a show at the Guthrie.
Two days later, my husband is still thanking me for his birthday outing. We had a wonderful time.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOur last meal at Sea ChangeOur last meal at Sea Change was the best that we have had in several years. The preparation and presentation was excellent.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious, great service!Delicious, great service! Our server (Matthew) was extremely good at explaining each dish that we had questions about including the ocean-friendly fishing practices used by their seafood sources. Thanks so much.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed the wonderful foodWe enjoyed the wonderful food and the excellent service.

We will come again gladly!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother fine offering by SeaAnother fine offering by Sea Change. So great to have a restaurant attached to the Guthrie -- after dinner we walked right upstairs for the play!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe recently tried Sea ChangeWe recently tried Sea Change again after we heard a new chef was heading the kitchen (still under Tim McKee) and thought the experience was great! We went after the Guthrie crowd cleared out and thought the service was terrific. The waiter had beenthere for years and acknowledged there had been a decline but felt now things were on track. Everything we tried was excellent - especially the grilled actopus and the razor clam casino, and also the lamb samosas - we lovedthe later as it showed they do more than seafood well. The wine list has a lot of variety andthe waitstaff made some great suggestions to pair with our rather eclectic series of shared dishes - we wanted to try as many different things as we could. We both rated it 5 stars!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe quality of the food asThe quality of the food as well as the attractiveness of the presentation was truly outstanding. Far superior to any other Twin Cities restaurants and comparable to those of Paris and London.

While the wait staff are pleasant, they don't have enough to go around in order to get the food out and keep the water and coffee refilled.
