Usually, yes I would recommend. However, my experience yesterday was not at all up to standards. My reservation was for 11:30 a.m. pre-play brunch. We did not get our food until approximately 12:25 p.m. If the restaurant was not in the Guthr building, I would have left.

Made a reservation for brunch before a Guthrie matinee. Upon entering this restaurant, one could tell that either the carpet desperately needed cleaning, or perhaps the odor from the garbage was filtering into the restaurant. Not pleasant. Service was poor. Orders were mixed up, food didn’t arrive for our small party at the same time, other couples were complaining and asking to speak with the manager. Coffee lukewarm, eggs cold and rubbery, served on cold plates. Won’t be going back after this experience.

Great food and usually prompt service. Yesterday was a little slow, however. Still worth it.

Location and setting are beautiful. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Our server was also very good.
We had octopus for appetizer, excellent.
We just thought it was surprising that there were no sides offered. They said the chef was working on it. We shared a salad which was good. Our ribeye we each had for $38? It came with fries!! There was no other option. We could have went to a supper club and had the same ribeye with more side options. We love trying different restaurants around the twin cities and trying different foods. Again the ambiance and service was awesome!!

Went on Valentines Day. Ambiance was spot on as usual, and the specials for that day were well thought out. We tried the mussels with the 4 treatments as an appetizer, and they were unique and outstanding. My seabass was delightful, and my wife's scallops were prepared perfectly.

My husband was very happy with the trout, and I loved the grain salad with the addition of mascarpone added. It was a lovely dinner, though as a pescatarian, I would have appreciated a vegetarian or fish option that didn't include chili or siracha. (The trout was wrapped in ham.) Wonderful staff and very pleasant atmosphere.

Pre dinner before a play at the Guthrie. Wonderful service, very kind, professional and experienced servers! Always makes a night of theater even better! Food was also excellent and just all around a great time, always. Thank you!

My husband is finishing up school and achieved straight A’s in his most recent semester. We came here to celebrate. He is an avid fan of seafood and had never had high class seafood before. He now ranks the Octopus as his #1 favorite dish in his lifetime.

We are Guthrie season ticket holders, so we dine here at least several times per year. This experience was unfortunately not up to par. The entire staff seemed overwhelmed by a larger party dining in one part of the restaurant. There did not appear to be dedicated servers for that party, as our server kept going back and forth. Our cocktails arrived and were at least 1/3 underfilled. Meanwhile, we saw numerous cocktails go out full to other tables. Bread was dry. Dessert was a "flourless chocolate cake" but really looked like one small brownie broken up and scattered on the plate, with a small scoop of ice cream. Main courses were very good, but everything else marred the experience.

We have been to Sea Change quite a bit because of our Guthrie tickets and it keeps getting better and better. My husband likes the fact that he can have a conversation without shouting (as he says) and that the oysters are amazing. On this visit I loved the grain salad - outstanding. We always share a dessert if we have time and the apple and ligonberry tart was excellent.

A reliable place for good food and service. New take and improvement on traditional iceberg salads. Entrees of branzino (sea bass) and Tex-Mex style pork chop were fantastic.

We went on NYE which had a $75 6-course tasting menu. The food was very good but the portions were very small for the price, we both left hungry. It also took forever to get our food. We were there for two hours, and the first two courses (two oysters and a small salad with crab and lobster) took an hour to get to us. The place wasn't very busy as there were a lot of open tables when we were there, and we saw people who got there later than us getting food before us, a couple groups even got two courses before we got one. I would like to try them again without the fixed course menu as their normal menu looks good but the length of time we spent waiting was a big turnoff.

We had the prix fixe meal on NYE. It was amazing. The flavors and presentation were impeccable. Phillipe was our waiter and he made great suggestions on drinks. He timed our courses out perfectly so we could enjoy the evening.

Had the Ribeye. It was $39 and just came with fries. But the meat was tough and only half an inch thick. Way over priced. They should have bought their ribeyes at Costco. They could have still made a good profit.

Holiday celebration with my daughters in-laws. They had never been to Sea Change and loved everything about it, especially the trout! It was delicious as were my shrimps.
The Winter salad was OUTSTANDING! My mouth is still watering every time I think about it.

I am grateful you insisted on a 5:45 reservation for a 7:30
Performance. We needed that amount of time! It made for a memorable evening!

1st Time at sea change! I would definitely go back! Peter was exceptional! He went over and above to meet our needs! He had great recommendations! On top of it all one of us had left our gloves and the restaurant called to inform us!
