We were a group of 6 and had a great time at Oceanaire- MPLS. Our waitress was very friendly, had great knowledge of the menu and was able to describe the food well and provide advice. The décor was colorful and elegant. The food was very good and fresh. Not one in our group disliked their meal. We would definitely return.

Awful service was the only thing that was consistent. It took 15 minutes to be seated, when we had a reservation. The server was not equipped or supported enough to handle a party of 10.

All in all, I wouldn’t go back, and I have had many good experiences in the past.

Celebrated my wife’s birthday. Great food. Tamera provided outstanding service great recommendations for appetizers and sides. I am a very critical diner and this was 5 stars all around. Fresh fresh fresh, great preparations. Crab cakes, creamed corn, octopus, big eye tuna and halibut all to die for.

Our biggest complaint was that the service was pretty crummy. It seems that if you are not a party of six or more here, no one pays attention to you. It was just my husband and myself and our server was barely present to us.

The waitress was very nice and attentive. The water and bread person was very rude and intrusive during our meal. He never said excuse me, never asked are you finished before taking a plate, and expected us to reuse flatware between courses as if we were eating at a dinner, not at a fine dining restaurant.

The shrimp and grits was very salty. My son’s chicken fried lobster and grits was very salty. My main course was without seasoning. We were disappointed with the food and the service.

Although the service was a little bit slow, it was very friendly and responsive service. All ten in the party enjoyed everything from their apps to their desserts. We will return for future group business dinnners.

Outstanding dinner at Oceanaire!! This has become a special occasion place for us and it was exceptional on our most recent visit. The calamari was fried perfectly, crab cakes and swordfish were delicious. So happy to see an espresso martini on the menu, and I was even able to get whip cream for it, it was fabulous!!! Chuck provided outstanding service!

I have eaten here several times, usually at lunch and normally love it, but this was a special occasion. We had visitors from out of town, and I wanted to impress them. I was so incredibly disappointed. Our server was either slow or over worked. We were there for an hour before he even took our food order. A lot of the time were were just sitting there, staring straight ahead, drinks empty. Eventually we got our food, the whole process took 3 hours. I was totally embarrassed, I had told our guests what a great place this was. I actually thought about just getting up and walking out, I wish I would have done that. I didn't want to make a big deal out of it.

We were in Minneapolis for my best friends birthday. The Oceanaire went above and beyond to make her, and our entire group feel special. The restaurant printed a special menu for us and the manager even came to our table and spoke with us to thank us for choosing to celebrate with them.

Our table had the crab cakes, mixed grill platter and lobster lovers three course entree. Everything was done to perfection. My mom said the crab cakes were the best she’s ever had. The scallops were unbelievable! I would definitely recommend any of these entrees. Also a huge shoutout to our server, Tiffany. She was so wonderful it really can’t be put into words.

Server Douglas was phenomenal. We started with a variety of 16 wonderful raw oysters. We followed his recommendations for crab cake appetizer, scallops meal w crab cake extra topping, and the blackened marlin w blue cheese topping. He made the birthday celebration very special for us, and everyone that worked there made us feel important. We were in awe of how delicious everything was. THANK YOU DOUGLAS, you are the best.

We celebrated our daughter’s 11th birthday and from start to finish the night was very special. Our server printed menus wishing her a happy birthday. The raw bar oysters were delicious. We were well cared for the entire evening with refills, crudités and bread. The crowning touch was the flaming baked Alaska. Our daughter felt celebrated. We loved the shrimp scampi, tuna and mixed shellfish grill. The night was amazing.
