    Food was fine, have not been there since COVID. Not sure it was really worth the price. Looking at past experience pictures, food portions were more expensive and smaller in size. Also you now have to pay for bread and vegetable plate which was quite disappointing. Will not be returning downtown to dine.

    This is my favorite restaurant in the Twin Cities. Everything was excellent starting when I walked in the door and was greeted warmly. Our waiter was attentive and very helpful. I would highly recommend Oceanaire to anyone who like high class dining.

    If you're celebrating something special--or want to feel as if you are--head to the Oceanaire. From the entry into the foyer and your warm greeting from the staff, the atmosphere immediately suggests accessible elegance. Our waiter was the right balance of jocularity and professionalism, which continued the ambience. Despite having to deal with large parties, our waiter helped us place our orders for our mains so we would not be waiting and continued to check in with just the right timing to ensure our needs were met. The food was as we always expect: made to perfection with impressive presentation. Shout out to the side staff who were personable and polite, filling water glasses, finding extra cutlery, and generally seeing our needs were attended to all evening. Vous dînerez bien à l'Océanaire!

    We were out for my husband's birthday and I have a dairy allergy. Our waiter was outstanding helping me know what my options were and how the chef could modify to work for me. We started by splitting the seafood salad and my husband had the crab cake entree--he said it was so good. I had the sesame tuna which is served rare and it was delicious and the brussel sprouts as a side were the perfect compliment. Our waiter was there when we needed him and left us to our conversation when we didn't. High recommend Oceanaire

    Thanks for a fantastic New Year's Eve dining experience! Doug was our server and he made our meal...amazing with his oyster and entrée recommendations. Doug was attentive and very professional - and helped with my gluten free questions. The oysters were so fresh. My husband enjoyed the lobster bisque and I shared a really yummy wedge salad. Crab cakes, scallops were great!

    Ive Been going Ocean Air since for many years (since old location), I went there new years eve, I made reservation 2 months earlier, they wedge us in a small table, and we didnt see waitress much, I usually order 2.5lbs-3lbs lobster they did not have them, thought about the 2lbs my waitress talk me out of that so i got the 2 tails in stead i asked if they could de shell and cut up, she said that would be request and have to ask chef, i said forget about iy would do it, We ordered Cocked tail shrimp (Good), Lobster Tail (Chewy), Filet (OK), Truffle Potato's(Nothing to right home about. Atmosphere A lot of fried food was being ordered, I felt like the Upscale restaurant has been lost, For $400 meal for two, its not what it use to be, Sad to say it went down hill, I feel like it is a Expensive Red Lobster now.

    For the amount of money we spent, not worth it. Lobster was very underwhelming. Appetizers were almost all breading. We have made multiple appearances over the last five years and this was by far the worst experience.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. The fresh oysters and calamari were the perfect complement to our main course of scallops with dynamite topping, filet cooked to perfection and truffle mashed potatoes plus seafood trio all to share in our party. To top it all off was baked Alaska, yum! Adrian is an excellent server that was very attentive with the right amount of good cheer! Definitely a recommendation for friends and family!

    We celebrate our anniversary here every year (aside from 2020) since I asked my girl to be my girlfriend 5 years ago! The staff is always amazing, and we especially love Dane, who has helped us on a couple of different times we’ve dined there, but all the staff is always great- even when it’s insanely busy! And, great food and drinks always! Thank you, Oceanaire!
