My wife and I had dinner reservations before an event at BMO Center. First time at Octane. Service was perfect, drinks were very good and fast. I had the Ricci Ricardo, I would recommend it. For me, the right amount of food. My wife had the grilled pear salad, that was a very pleasant surprise. Huge flavor and a decent... More

We visited Octane when we were seeing a concert at the Coronado Center, which is just up at the street. We just wanted dessert (the Chocolate Nachos - which were delicious) and a couple of drinks. All the tables were full, so we sat at the bar. Friendly staff and moderately priced food & drinks. The mains I observed looked... More

We came here before a recent Ice Hogs game and were lucky to get a table without a reservation. The drinks were good and service was very good as well. The waitress was great with giving us food suggestions. The menu was varied and there are enough choices for anyone with just about any food/dietary restrictions. The portions are generous... More

I had a late lunch at Octane after it was recommended by a client. The menu was pretty expansive and had a good range of seemingly flavorful dishes. I ordered the Twisted Mac n' Cheese, which comes with chicken, along with an almond creme soda. The drink was really good - if you like creme soda, you'll very likely enjoy... More

Great food, very uptown kind of feel. I recommend making reservations as it does fill up fast when there is a concert in town. The BMO Harris Center is within walking distance and there is a parking garage 1/2 a block away.

Octane has outstanding food selection in a hip artsy setting. Friendly staff, but a bit slow during lunch rush, but a great evening place to take a date or friend. They also have a great beer section.

We walked in, by chance, before a show at the Coranado Theater with 45 minutes to eat. We were seated immediately and everyone was wonderful. The server Josh was really personable and great at his job. The food was amazing. Everything was fresh and tasted like it had been prepared with passion for food. The burger my boyfriend got had...
