Our server, Chuck, was very helpful and polite! The food was outstanding. Our fish was tender and the desserts were great! (First time trying bread pudding- definitely recommend it if you like French toast!) The oceanaire has the best crab cakes in Minneapolis; totally worth the money

We arrived at 7pm and were crammed in a large room full of shouting adults and children under glaring lights when there were tables and booths in another area that sat mostly empty and quiet. That's why this review got 3 stars. Three of our group ordered fish from the restaurant week menu and were happy, the fourth ordered flank steak that was flavorful but too tough to chew. No offer was made to rectify the bad steak.

Food was excellent, Service was far beyond my expectations! Our waiter had a great suggestion to pick multiple entrees and share - only complaint I would have is don’t get the regular Halibut get the special one — reg was too dry

Very nice meal with my husband. Server was congenial and helpful. Food was very good. Lobster tails were slightly underdone. Bacon around monkfish was burnt to a crisp but monkfish was done just right. Oysters Rockefeller were excellent. Took a while for the food to be delivered.

Arrived early for our reservation, so sat in the bar to wait. Hoped they could seat us earlier, but waited a very long time. We finally decided to just eat in the bar, but when we went to tell them, all of a sudden there was a booth waiting for us. I had mentioned it was our anniversary and they did print Happy Anniversary on the menu, but I was hoping for maybe a complimentary dessert, which most places offer, but no such luck. Atmosphere was really nice, but disappointed with what we ordered. Would try something else next time.

Oceanaire is a great restaurant. The server was knowledgeable and knew the answer to every menu question we had. There was a table of 30 that came in right before us, though not the fault of the staff, so we had a longer wait for our food. Our server brought us free soup while we waited. Drinks were fantastic. Oysters were delicious. Food prepared for us was perfect.

Oceanaire is a very good restaurant. I ordered their walleye pike
and my husband ordered big eyed tuna. To start with we each ordered the New England clam chowder. We will definitely return
to Oceanaire when we visit Minneapolis again.

The Manhattan was below average. We had squid and cauliflower soup for an app. They were 4 out of 5, very good. My main course was seared tuna and my wife had crab cakes. The crab cakes were 5 out of 5. The tuna was fine, 3 out of 5. Our sides were asparagus and mushrooms, nothing special. For the price I expected more. I would not go back.

Fabulous seafood! Our waiter, Dan, was very helpful with his recommendations. The BEST was the key lime pie! It was creamier than any key lime pie I've ever eaten, even in Florida! And the giant slice ($11) fed two people. I"m still dreaming about it. The Baked Alaska, "on the house" for our anniversary, was nothing to brag about. It must have been in the freezer for a long time, and it tasted of the alcohol poured over and lit.

Once again a great evening dinner. Missing the seared octopus and mussels but the chef was able to come up with something close and hit the mark. Simply prepared halibut was fantastic and the staff is always wonderful.

We did enjoy it, the service was second to none! Very well taken care of, even offered soup due to kitchen wait. We were not in a hurry and were not bothered by the wait but did appreciate the offer and accepted. That was very nice! It was pretty loud inside but other than that it was good. It was just hard to talk lots of other really loud guests inside not sure Oceanaire can be blamed for that.

Absolutely amazing atmosphere and outstanding dinner! I chose the Chicken Fried Lobster and I don't think I could try anything else because I will get that every time now!
I wrote on our reservations that we were celebrating our 3rd year wedding anniversary and our menus were custom printed with "Happy 3rd Anniversary"!
