    We went for our 20th anniversary. Our baby sitter was late so they were able to adjust our reservation. The GM walked us to our table and handed us custom embossed menus to denote our 20th. Phil was aware and mindful and gave us incredible service. We had oysters, Escargot, Filet and scallops. The Manhattan and margarita were spot on. Phil brought us baked Alaska to end with and Art brought us a couple espressos. It was wonderful all around. Been to several Oceannaires and this one is clean, run extremely well and even though they had a ton of covers throughout the night, we felt special and well taken care of. Bravo.

    We went there for Artic Char, but was disappointed because they are out. Phil was a great server. He was very attentive and funny. However, the male hostess who was at front desk when we checked in was quite rude. I didn't get his name and I would describe him as an Asian looking guy. The female hostesses were friendly and professional. Perhaps our next visit we will get the Artic Char and don't run into the male hostess again.

    We went here for my son’s 21st birthday with a group of 8. Reservations were at 7pm. They were running behind and we weren’t seated until 7:40. They did walk around with a complimentary amuse bouchée. The service was slow, but our waiter was good. Overall, a bit disappointing for a very expensive evening. It’s unfortunate as this used to be one of our favorite places.

    We ordered the clam chowder to share, but the soup was not nearly hot enough. The dinning room was very noisy with the open floor plan. This was our 1st time here and celebrating my husband's birthday. The service was amazing. My seafood dinner was out of this world.

    It’s been a while since we’ve had a truly excellent meal dining out - but Oceannaire provided just that. Oysters were fresh, well chilled and superb. Three of us had halibut, each prepared differently and all spot on. Crab cakes had big lumps of crab. Service by Farrah made us feel welcome and special. The vibe was a little hectic but so good to see that in downtown these days. Beware that prices are up from the past ( and what’s in some online menus) but shouldn’t be surprising.

    Tonight was awful. Had a reservation for our son’s 24th birthday. They put us in the bar area. Very loud and crowded. The hostess could see we weren’t thrilled but we decided to stay. Server broke the cork in our bottle of wine. Then brought another unopened bottle and left it at the table and walked away. My husband and I both ordered medium steaks - two totally different temps. We sat and waited between courses and we sat waiting to get the check. We’ll never go back - too many other great places in Minneapolis.

    By far overrated, on our Friday night anyway. My wife, of 35 years, and myself ventured to Oceanaire for a much needed “date night”. We arrived at 5:45 for our 6:00 reservation. We were one of only 5 tables seated. Again a Friday night in Minneapolis. The tree was six wait staff just standing there waiting for arrivals. Looked kinda pathetic actually. Of course our waiter came over right away, as he should have. His name was Phil and hope you get him. Great waiter and again as expected, making an average of $100 per table per night in tips. Atmosphere and decor was outstanding. Most customers were abiding by the dress code but not all. It says they will turn you away if wearing sweats and game day wear. They clearly do not after seeing what we saw. Remember, it was us two only with no thought of spending. A bill of $400 proves that statement. Now the troubles. Started with the two crab cake appetizer. They were good but only warm. Then a shared clam chowder that was horrible. Entrees came with a combined total of four lobster tails, two crab cakes, six jumbo shrimp, and six asparagus. All lobster tails were cold, and overcooked, shrimp was tender and very good, crab cakes were barely warm and a mushy texture, and the asparagus was perfectly cooked but cold. We actually needed a steak knife to cut the tails to a chewable size. Needless to say, we were stunned, especially with now only ten tables filled. There was absolutely no excuse of any kind for what was delivered other than a non caring chef and staff. Embarrassing was almost our chosen word to friends as a description of the food. A huge disappointment. We actually bought frozen $10 cold water four ounce lobster tails the next day from a local store so I could share with my wife how they should be. I cook them maybe three times a year for us. Perfect tender sweet tails that cut easily with a fork. Thankfully lobster was redeemed with our taste buds.
