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.

The food here is VERY good. The oysters are amazing. The service was great, wine was good, but I do think the prices are a little high, even for a luxury seafood place. Would likely not eat here again, but extremely happy I did once!

My wife and I have eaten at the Oceaniare several times in the past. The service and food have always been outstanding. Unfortunately this was not the case this time. Service was slow, we had to ask for our bread; my wife had to wait for over 10 minutes to get the waitresses attention to have her crab leg cracked... More

Made reservations and told them it was my birthday, menus said "happy birthday Michelle". Our waiter Ricardo was charming, considerate, professional, funny, engaging, informative, and so good at his job! Ricardo made our experience the best and we will definitely be going back there!

A key feature of a great dinner is the speed of service -- neither too fast or too slow. They hit it on the head. Good food quality. Would go again.

All food and servers are great. Seafood is flown in fresh everyday. Even though this restaurant is more expensive then most, the price is worth it. I highly suggest this restaurant to anyone in Minneapolis seeking fresh and good quality seafood.

We had a girls night out. The dinner was absolutely wonderful. It would rank on the top five dinners we've ever had in Minneapolis. The staff was amazing. Highly recommend.

Having dined at a couple of other locations of this chain, I was expecting a great seafood meal. The Oceanaire is well situated in the central business district close to major hotels and offices. The restaurant is fitted out in the corporate Oceanaire "liner" style and ambiance is good. Our waiter was very good in terms of service and explaining... More

I had been to the Oceanaire for dinner couple of years ago and it was a wonderful experience- so in June, a friend and I decided to try out their Happy Hour menu- what a delight! The oysters were just great - I had to have more than one serving- plump, fresh and the shrimp and grits that my friend... More

If you want faster and quieter service, go early. We had oysters, caviar, marlin, barramundi, and banana cream pie with white, red, and desert wines. Really good service. The food was really great - every course. Highly recommend.

We ordered the escargo as an app and it was delicious! We had the halibut and the Canadianan walleye. The halibut was good but the walleye was exceptional. Side dish was the grilled squash, very good. Can;t wait to go back!
