One of the best fine dining in mpls. In my opinion.
Steaks were delicious, tender, flavorful, and cooked to order.
Seafood was fresh, tasty, and not overcooked. I especially enjoyed the scallops.

Occeanaire is one of our birthday special places. We love the wide variety of choices - fancy or simple, calories or not, new entrees or favorites. A particular delight is the diversity of clientele. Everyone was out for an EVENT and enjoyed themselves - birthdays, wedding party, business folks - black, white, brown, straight, gay. This restaurant knows how to make people feel welcomed and valued.

Our food was excellent - sea scallops Casino as appetizers - our usual Caesar salad with great dressing and lots of shaved Parmesan cheese, and their wonderful crab cakes, more scallops ( this time a great spicy preparation) and black and blu stripped bass with caramelized onion and blue cheese. For birthdays, Oceanside prepares a special dessert - this time baked Alaska.

Our server was delightful. Very capable, personable, funny - she could run this place some day.

This place is a keeper.

We were celebrating a 70th birthday. All seafood was excellent. Great service. Plan on a rather stiff bill. (These higher prices seem to be the norm from the pandemic).

The Lump Crab Cocktail was a little fishy, not quite as fresh as I would like and the waitress got my dinner order wrong and what did come out was overcooked.

The dinner was a simple mistake but we had other reservations and could not wait for them to correct it. Service was good outside of that. Waitress recommended an excellent wine that wasn't on their printed list.

We had a great experience at Oceanaire for our first wedding anniversary! They made us feel very special from all the hosts knowing it was our anniversary to having menus printed up saying happy first anniversary and gave us a free dessert!

Everything was wonderful. It was a special occasion as my son had just gotten married. The server brought them a baked Alaska to celebrate.

The service was impeccable. The food was excellent but overpriced.

The service was superb and the food was excellent! It is so easy to mis-prepare seafood but everything - the shrimp, scallops, lobster - everything - was prepared perfectly! The truffle mashed potatoes did not disappoint - I couldn't stop eating them! Oceanaire definitely is top notch!

Food tasted good but overpriced. Not an honest restaurant, the prices on my receipt were NOT the same as the menu - meaning I paid even more than expected. CHECK YOUR RECEIPTS CLOSELY. Found multiple shells in my Mac and cheese as well. probably won’t be back.

Love this restaurant however the price point has increased (both drinks and food) and the happy hour menu is gone. I would like to give 5 stars but the prices seemed off to me. Service was great however!

This was by far one of the best dining experiences we've had in the twin cities. Everything from the ambience, sophisticated jazz music (at just the right volume), service and food were all exceptional. The shrimp cocktail appetizer with fresh shaved horse radish was an excellent start to our fabulous meal. I ordered the "Simple" Halibut with the black and blue sauce which was amazing! The creamed corn side was the best creamed corn we've ever had and the truffle potatoes were light and delicious. My partner got the surf and turf which he also loved. And of course, we couldn't pass up dessert! The chocolate torte with the raspberry coulis was fantastic!! The one down side is that it is very expensive (we didn't even order drinks). This is a once a year kinda place for special occasions.

My husband was bringing a friend out to dinner, because of all that he has done for for him over these past few years. He wanted it special, and Oceanaire came highly recommended, so I made the reservation. When I received the confirmation call, I was asked if this was a special occasion. I explained the situation and she told me they will make special menus , that on the top it will say “ Thank you Darrell” This was the beginning of our exceptional service! When we were seated our server, Tiffany asked who Darrell was. He looked dumbfounded at first, and then looked at the menu. This was a moment my husband and I will never forget. Tiffany was amazing! She was very attentive, knew the menu and could answer every question, very, very nice and personable. Everyone at this restaurant was spectacular, they all had smiles and working like a well oiled machine. I travel for my business , and have done so for over 23 years. I eat out a lot in many different restaurants. I have NEVER had better service! Kudos to Oceanaire and Tiffany

Great service. Awesome food. Terrific beverages. Even without alcohol the tab runs up quickly. But if you're willing and able to pay the tariff, it's well worth the cost.
