very nice menu variety and a Wonderful Place to have dinner for a special event. I went for my birthday and the menu was customized just for me. I recommend the grilled octopus and seared tuna, save room for dessert

Until tonight, Oceanaire has been our "go to" spot for oysters and great seafood in Minneapolis. Tonight, however, the oysters were so poorly shucked there was no liquid in them at all, and they were, clearly, the bottom of the barrel. Service was tepid, and...More

Lots of fish options and our waitress was very knowledgeable about flavors. We were not disappointed. Its a large room but it feels very individual. We were a large group and we all ordered something different and shared.

Very good fish restaurant. The staff knows the offerings well. They say the fish is flown in daily, quite a trick for Antarctic char!

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.
