Excellent meal, service, and ambience.

Seems kinda ironic that a place apparently all about sustainability and responsibility has foie gras on the menu. Pretty big turn off for me.

We were expecting a lot more. Service was amateur, for example, when clearing dishes, he stopped by with his hands full with other’s dishes and asked us to stack ours on top. Bread was not warm and crust was not crispy. When a second container was brought out, is was warm and crispy. The butter was delicious. The shrimp cocktail had a very plain presentation and the shrimp were rather small. The cocktail sauce was more of a chutney and not memorable. Beet salad was ok. Smoked salmon didn’t have much of a smoked flavor, and portion was small. So nothing bad but quite disappointing.

Our evening at Sea Change was a completely terrific experience. Started with great cocktails in the bar and moved to the raw bar for dinner. We were treated like royalty and had nice interaction with the staff preparing our meal. Our questions were answered in great detail and tastes of items that we were curious about were offered. We ate a delicious and very well prepared selection of East coast oysters. The langoustines were a highpoint as well at the smoked sturgeon tagliatelle. We will definitely be dining there again, and again...

There was nothing bad about my experience. We were celebrating a birthday, which was acknowledged by the hostess, and we were seated promptly. The server was very approachable and friendly, and checked on us enough that didn't feel overbearing. Now: the food was not bad by any means. We started with the octupus which was mindblowing - texture was like butter, they were seared to perfection and the flavors lingered for the rest of the night. Honestly my favorite meal. I had the artic char for the main, which was served well in its broth but fell short of groundbreaking. My partner had the beef ribeye which looked great, but cooked a little too far past medium rare. As mentioned before, we didn't dislike anything so we said nothing. Sea Change was a good ambient experience, but didn't shine in anything we had but the octupus and my thyme bourbon cocktail.

We had a spectacular time with Lindsy! Thanks to the kitchen team for a delicious meal!
Have to start with oysters for the table.
Tuna carpaccio- always a favorite! My date was unsure about the Langoustines, but I think he’ll be back just for those!
Scallops and a rib eye for entrees. Perfectly prepared! Easily swapped bites between each other. Both so tasty.
We turned down dessert at first, but after more wine, the chocolate and peanut butter was calling our names. Yum!

I had the brussel sprouts and octopus starters. They were both fabulous. The octopus was perfectly done/not chewy at all. I wish i had taken a picture of the dish.
It was beautifully plated. The other person in my party had the scallops. They were also quite good.

Because it was off season, there was no crowd or concern regarding timing. Our waiter was very attentive.

The food was excellent. Portions are just the right size for an appetizer (or shared appetizer) plus entree. Most appetizers are great for sharing. Friendly, competent service.

Fantastic food and service. Best bouillabaisse in the Twin Cities.

The food and service were terrific. Our server was very helpful and insightful and she did a very good job recommending food and helping with wine pairings. The lone black mark on the evening was as follows: We had stopped elsewhere in St. Paul for drinks and then discovered that we had a Guthrie Gift Certificate that we were going use that we forgot to bring with us. However we were able to locate the number for the certificate. We called the restaurant prior to driving to Minneapolis to see if we could simply present the number without the actual printed out certificate. They assured us that we could. AFTER our dinner we were informed that this, in fact, was not the case and that because it was a Guthrie Certificate, and not a Sea Change certificate, we could not use it. I spoke with the manager about this, and he did not care to remedy the situation. I work a few blocks from Sea Change and I told him I would bring the certificate by on Monday - he refused. I told him that someone on the phone had assured us we could use the certificate - he refused. Also - I had indicated on our reservation that this dinner was to celebrate my Birthday - no one acknowledged it whatsoever. So everything was delightful until the end - even without the birthday acknowledgement, and the last 15 minutes really soured us on the experience. The manager could have taken care of this, but for did not. There are soooo many good restaurants in the Twin Cities, I will be seeking them out long before a go back to Sea Change due to this. Sad.

Crab cake Benedict was tasty, but cold. Hollandaise was room temperature, spinach and English muffins were actually cold. Eggs were over cooked. It was rather disappointing.
