    There were 6 of us that got together. We had a wonderful time. The food was AWESOME, the service was a 10, everything was so great. Would highly recommend to everyone! The scallops were to die for, huge, melted in our mouths. The steak, crab cakes, side dishes, all of it, just wonderful.

    The food was outstanding. Zero complaints for taste and preparation. I tried to order a pretty common cocktail and they’d never heard of it. I explained it and they didn’t have Luxardo Maraschino liqueur, which is pretty normal for an upscale bar. Settled for something on the menu which was good. We shared a shrimp cocktail with 5 huge shrimp. Awesome. Unfortunately, they brought the main courses before we had barely started the appetizer. For mains we had the seared ahi tuna and the seafood mix combo (crab cake, shrimp and lobster). Also great flavors and perfectly cooked. Sadly, our side dish arrived after we finished the mains and we sent it back. They offered a free baked Alaska which was great. So, food was fabulous, but the service just wasn’t up to par for this restaurant.

    We arrived as they opened for my husbands 40th birthday. It was noted in our reservation details. We were seated in the bar, and served by the bartender. He was fine, but watching everyone in the dining room have literal white coat service was a total bummer. When we asked about food details he didn’t have the information. My meal was lukewarm at best when served. I didn’t complain, nor did I mention that there was no sort of acknowledgement of our special occasion. Given that we had a reservation, from weeks prior, I had an expectation of the service and experience that was not met. I do not imagine we will come back. It is a real disappointment - we came for knowledgeable seafood and a warm experience and it felt like Chili’s with shrimp.

    We really enjoyed our evening at Oceanaire. I have to say that it was one of the finest dining experiences I’ve ever known. Justin our server was on top of his game and is quite the king crab surgeon. If you’re in Minneapolis stop in for a great meal.

    The oysters were great and the food was very very good . The chef made special accommodations for food allergies which was very much appreciated. The portions were spot on & we left feeling satisfied. We sat in the bar area at a round table & the service was unusually poor. This is the first time we’ve been sat there as opposed to the dining area & although the ambiance was pleasing the lack of attention by serving staff dampened our dining experience.

    We waited at the host stand for over 10 min. Our reservation was at 7:30 and we didn’t even get water until 8. Then our drinks finally at 8:15. By the time we were asked for our order we tried to tell them we were hungry and ordered the bread to tide us over and the oysters. Everything came all at once. Oysters came last even though we were told our bread, oysters and salad would come first. So we ended up eating our meat and crab first so it wouldn’t get cold. I’ve heard about this place for years and we finally had a date night without kids and spent $300 on the worst service I’ve had in years. We won’t be back.

    Our server had so much food and mess all over his white coat. Yuck for this expensive of a place! Wash it or get your staff new ones. Steak was well done, asked for medium. Lobster was flavorless. Shrimp cocktail (mainly the sauce) was good. Asparagus was burnt and didn’t come out, had to ask for it. Crab cake was hella fishy! Just a total meh! My sister had the crab legs and they were good, but for $125 she barely got any. Manager did try and make up for it all and was super nice. For a $300 bill you’d expect more!

    We dine at Oceanaire a few times a year. The place is fantastic as is the food. But the service is simply top notch. My wife and I had the pleasure of meeting Phil, our server on 115/2022, and he was great! Took great care of us and made our dining experience memorable. We plan to dine there much more often. Thank you Phil!

    Everything was great, but the food was ordinary. My husband and mother in law had the filet mignon with a lobster tail and the taste of the steak seems like you could have gone to any other restaurant that has steak on the menu.( like Applebees or TGIFridays etc.) Lobster for them. I ordered a 14oz lobster tail and that was a mistake because i got tired of eating it. No flavor, only to be dipped with butter, I didn’t want to finish it but it was expensive so I had to. The look of our food was very eye catching though.

    We have been to Oceanaire 20 plus times over the past 7 years. The food and service have always been great. This time the service was subpar. Maybe we are old fashioned but we would have expected my wife to be the first person the waiter would serve. When he asked for our drink order he asked me and I deferred to my wife. Then when asking for our dinner order he did the same, again I deferred to my wife. We request a waiter we have come to like but he wasn't working that night. We will go again because everything else was great. By the way my tip was far less generous than I usually leave and if it were up to my wife it would have been even less.
