We were a bit worried about going out to eat on one of the first open nights. The outside tables were spaced and our waiter was very efficient, had on gloves and mask. We ordered seared Tuna and grilled Salmon, chopped salad. All were delicious. Thanks for being open.

Would love to have your fish tacos somewhere on the menu!

The ambiance was wonderful, our food was very well prepared and delicious. Our server knew the menu and very prompt. We enjoyed our night out, the host whom seated us was a brother Vet and our conversation was extremely enjoyable. Upon our arrival, we were immediately greeted and welcomed. I will definitely recommend to our friends to eat here.

The atmosphere was nice--understated and a little dark, but with some bright accents. The service was very good. Nat was our waiter and he was knowledgable about the menu and answered our questions well. The pace of the meal was good except at the end when it took a while to cash out. The food was very good. We had poke ($17), mussels($18) and the grilled octopus($24) for appetizers. The presentation and taste were all excellent. We had two entrees--the scallops and the cod, both done "Louis" style. Both were also very good but at $58 and $48 respectively, a little high priced. We also had the glazed beets($12) as a side, also good. We had one drink--a peanut butter whiskey based cocktail that was actually very good and at $14 reasonably priced. With tax and tip, the meal for two came to $250.00. It is obvious the the food is made with care and is well done. We will be back, but next time, probably stick with just the appetizers--the three we had were all very good and quite large--practically big enough to be an entree--and if 2 people ordered 4 apps, that would make a great meal indeed. Oh, and we were there for a BDay celebration and the menu had a personalized BDay wish printed on it--a very nice touch.

We had an 8:00 reservation, entrees not served until 9:45. They gave us a discount, but for this price level, not acceptable.

Amazing experience and night out. While quite expensive, the atmosphere and service alone well warrant the price.

Great food and service. A good selection of menu items to choose from with very tempting chef specials listed. The noise level was a little loud for my senior ears but the vibe of the room was fun.

Exquisite experience!

I live out of state for college, and was back in town for the weekend to see my man. Oceanaire provided the perfect date night.
Our server Chuck provided outstanding service, very knowledgeable with the menu, and perfect amount of attentiveness. Gave us plenty of time to enjoy our courses but we were never left wondering where he was. Great Job.
We started with the crab cakes. Crab cakes are our thing, we go to restaurants just to try them, and these are the best we've found in the Twin Cities so far. Decadent and melt in your mouth. They were excellent.
Next we had lobster bisque. Normally I'm not a fan of this soup because I find it too sweet and rich, but this one was one I'd order again. Not too sweet and nice lumps of lobster.
For the main course my man got the Filet and shrimp. And I got the Live Lobster. Both excellent.

Can't wait to come back!

The Oysters were to die for, so amazingly good, however our meals were not as exciting, they were delicious but not for the price we paid. I had the Black and Blue Grouper, it was amazing but it was $50 and I didn't feel it was worth that price, the portion size was a tad small and way to much blue cheese. The mashed potatoes were super good. Our waiter was a bit lack luster, I felt "rushed" to order and he prematurely walked away from us a few times, he was nice and friendly but I think he had to many tables to attend to. Our "bus boy" was amazing, he kept our table clean, took our dirty dishes away immediately, filled waters as soon as they were empty, had a smile on his face and was friendly. Overall it was a great experience, just felt my meal wasn't worth the money we spent.

Had an underwhelming experience here years back which has kept me from coming back, but I figured I'd give it another chance due to Restaurant Week, and I'm glad I did.
My server Farrah was the best server I've had at any place in a long time, and we eat out a decent amount. Her knowledge of the menu and her excitement around it set a great tone, without being too over the top. I'd definitely go back to see her.
