Yummy coffee and potato wedges

My boyfriend and I went here last month and loved the service and food. We came back this month and overall still had a good experience, but the service wasn't quite as good. They sat us at a table and it took over 5 minutes to get menus. They do have amazing potato wedges and I love their coffee... read more

Excellent food and service. Parents, don't let the fact that this place does not have a "children's" menu scare you away. I came here with 4 kids and they all loved their meals. The restaurant is able to make many of the menu items kid friendly.. The staff is very accommodating and able to help you navigate through the menu.... More

We hadn't eaten at Octane for a couple of years, but enjoyed the seafood specials. There's good wines and coffee drinks. It's a small place, but the creative menu keeps drawing crowds.

I was introduced to this fabulous, downtown centrally located restaurant by a group of friends. That being said I definitely recommend Octane as a gathering place where you can relax have fun in it's casual warm ambient. In the summer they have tables out in front. Normally I do not eat Mac-n-Cheese even if you put chicken in it but... More

Visited here on a Saturday early afternoon. Upon entering we were told to seat ourselves but picked a table that hadn't been cleared and set yet (whoops), as there were only a few open ones to choose from. The decor is eclectic and bright colored. I'm sure this place is nicer looking at night when it is darker out. In... More

I was looking for a nice place to have a quick dinner and a brew before heading to a hockey game with a friend 2 blocks away at the Metro Center. I did not have reservations, but was provided a seat at the bar without waiting. Great selection of beer, and food. I chose an Octane burger with white cheddar,... More

This chef and his restaurant would be a standout in any big city in the country. The food is imaginative, well executed, well presented and the flavors combinations are awesome. The service is friendly and professional. I had lunch of the Pork Grilled Cheese Sandwich - butterkäse • mozzarella • a heap-o-pulled pork • caramelized onions • on butter-toasted country... More

My wife had the mac and cheese (seasonal?) and I had the blue cheese burger. Both were phenomenal. It's a must-go if you're downtown.

I love this place! Creative food and the Hawaii 5-0 burrito is outstanding! I've eaten here 5-6 times and it never disappoints!
