Had a coupon for a free appetizer provided from our hotel so we decided to give this place a shot. Not even a 5 minute stroll from the Embassy Suites, we enjoyed sitting outside with the best service provided by Bri. We honestly can't thank...More

As a vegan with a carnivore bf we both love this place for its freshness and high quality of each item. Wine selection is vast and food menu changes daily. Can't wait to go back!

There isn't nothing to compare it to. We enjoy fine dining when we do go out. This was our 3rd trip to Oceanaire. I'm very conservative and the price is not cheap. But it is worth it. Excellent value for the dollar.

We dined at this establishment during a recent trip to Minneapolis. We were looking for an elegant option that was within walking distance of our hotel. As usual, The Oceanaire did not disappoint! The food and service was superb. The ambiance is perfect.

Being from New England I was skeptical about seafood in the middle of the USA. And...I was not hungry. With those caveats out of the way, note that this was a business dinner and I was working. The atmosphere was odd. I was not sure...More

The Oceanaire was an unexpected delight! A recent business dinner brought me to The Oceanaire. I wasn't sure about seafood in the heart of Minneapolis, in a nondescript office building, but I was quickly won over by the professional service, icy cold cocktail and ultimately,...More

So while on a business trip, I went with a group and my girlfriend for dinner. The atmosphere was pretty good, but they had a weird carpet that is held in place by a large rubber gasket along the edge that catches your chair. I...More

Expensive, weak food and mediocre service. This place is a great place for suburbanites to eat overpriced and poorly cooked seafood. Ordered crab that was from a can and then had a very simple salmon dish that was recommended to be medium and came our...More

As sleek as a 1930s ocean liner, yet as relaxed as a dinner on the shore, the Oceanaire provides the perfect setting to enjoy Ultra-Fresh seafood, flown in daily from around the world. Sip a Sidecar in the lounge, sidle up to the oyster bar, or kick back in a horseshoe booth before diving into a sea of Ultra-Fresh fish, including Alaskan halibut, seasonal favorites like fresh Copper River salmon or hard-to-find delicacies like true Dover sole. Our daily-printed menu will guide you, a wine list as deep as the sea will seduce you, and the world's freshest seafood awaits you at the Oceanaire.
