Our server Tiffany was energetic and most helpful with suggestions. The halibut and Dover sole were excellent and perfectly prepared. Crab claws and crab cakes came with a tasty sauce. Cheesecake was also great. Overall it was a nice relaxing dinner. We never felt rushed and had plenty of time to visit.

Very good halibut. My wife had the mixed grill and enjoyed all of it, especially the scallops. Great service from Farrah. We were on a “date” and they seated us in a room with 2 other couples that was quieter than the rest of the dining area. A little pricey, but to get fresh fish and seafood in the upper Midwest it is expected. We would eat there again. 😋

The whole Oceanaire team was OUSTANDING! From the time we walked in to the time we left. Everyone was friendly, up beat, and on the same page. The food was absolutely delicious! Which I didn’t expect nothing less from the the first time I visit a few years ago. Our server was very knowledgeable and professional. I love the fact everyone knew it was a Birthday celebration and they wanted to make a very special day. I totally recommend “The Oceanaire” for any occasion or just because you want a change of scenery. Thank you for making my birthday once again a very special occasion!

We arrived at 7:20 and had a show at 9:30. The entrees arrived at 9:05 and we had still to walk to the show afterwards. Had to eat fast. No fun having to rush your food. The food and drink were absolutely delicious. The server was very knowledgeable and friendly, but took too long to ask for our main course order. Just need to allow more time apparently next visit. Highly recommend the coriander and thai chili rubbed mahi mahi.

My boyfriend and I ate here for his birthday. Absolutely amazing! The caesar salad was TOP TIER. I was just in disbelief with how good it was. The food was full of flavor and it was fresh.
I had the shrimp scampi...WOW. Is all I can say. Just wow. My boyfriend had the lobster tail and swordfish. He loved every bite!
Our waiter Phil was such a friendly outgoing guy! Made the entire experience even better. The atmosphere was great as well.
This will be somewhere we continue to go to. HIGHLY recommend.

The fish was prepared tableside but many bones and skin remained. Filets were too salty. Barely edible. Server was excellent but separate person who prepared the fish was disappointing.

We were celebrating our daughter’s promotion and so we splurged at the Oceanside Room. It was fabulous. We all loved our main courses and each thought ours was the best, a rarity for us. The salmon, the swordfish, the chicken fried lobster and the Halibut with Dynamite Crab were all fabulous. We also had the Brussel sprouts, the hash browns and truffle fries…all to die for. Our waitress, Farrah, was excellent and provided great suggestions. We will go back when we visit Minneapolis again!

Our waitress Farrah was the most professional waitress I've had in many years, outside of the food she made us feel like we were very special. My next dinner I will request her for sure.

Good food, great service but uncomfortably cold. We asked our server if anything could be done but she said the whole system would be affected. We had to eat with our coats and jackets on which was cumbersome and affected our experience.

As a salesman for almost 28 years, I’ve had the pleasure of eating at some very fine establishments. Oceanaire never disappoints. The ambiance is great and the service is always top notch. I can’t think of a better place if you are looking for seafood (or anything else for that matter). Highly recommend this establishment in Minneapolis.

Oceanaire is generally our favorite place to go and have been here 15-20 times over the last several years. This time we were a bit disappointed. The restaurant was cold, we asked if the air could be adjusted and there was no action. I would guess the pandemic and or the protesting has had an effect on the downtown Minneapolis restaurants. Food was great but the downtown vibe is missing.

The staff was working very hard catering to a full house last night. The manager was constantly helping to seat people, taking orders at the bar and serving bar orders. Our menu was printed with a happy birthday message, which was a nice touch. Our waitress was phenomenal, seemingly checking in on us at the perfect time while taking care of multiple tables. Her recommendations were very helpful as we had a hard time figuring out which of the great entree items to choose from. The service and the food were beyond our high expectations. We also appreciate that baked Alaska house specially desert was in tribute to breast cancer awareness, which my wife is a survivor of. Thanks for helping make our night extra special.

The food was great, but we expected phenomenal/“might be the best I’ve ever tasted” for those price tags. We enjoyed our time, but most likely won’t be going back unless it’s for a a once-in-a-lifetime event or celebration. On a positive note, our server was amazing and very knowledgeable!

We went to celebrate three birthdays in our family. We were greeted immediately with Happy Birthdays. They personalized the menus with a happy Birthday and their names. The seafood tower was wonderful as were the entrees. They even did a complimentary baked Alaska for us. Our server Tiffany made our evening even more special with outstanding service. Thanks Oceanaire for a beautiful celebration

Oceanaire is always a treat and wait staff is excellent… very disappointed that they actually charged us for “Bread”… I felt embarrassed for the waiter who had to convey such a ridiculous message to people dining… shame on you Oceanaire for putting your waitstaff in this position!

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.
