Description: 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.

Oceanaire came recommended, we went for lunch. I asked for the fish of the day with tartar sauce on the side and a side salad, skip the other sides. Instead, the waiter brought a bed of lettuce with a microscopic piece of fish on it, then said "oh, I forgot your tartar sauce!" I guess he figured I'd use tartar sauce as salad dressing? Fish was just not good, and the fact that the order was botched didn't help. Wouldn't go back if you paid me to do it.

I love seafood, and it's hard to get good fish in Minneapolis. This place does it really well, it's a pretty room too. Great for special occasions, as it is pricey, but you get what you pay for here.

Used to go there several times a year till they changed hands and lost a lot of the charm they had. You had to ask for harring and the waiters were not nearly as attentive as in the past .One dish of red snapper was mushy and had to send it back.

I've been to the Oceanaire Seafood Room a handful of times. While my experience at their old location for dinner was pretty awesome (if ungodly expensive), my experience at their new location for lunch was overpriced and underwhelming. The service has been great every time, but I can't justify spending so much, particularly on a lunch that was really not very good. The place gets more than a single star because the dinner experiences were so good.
