Though the menu is small, there is a something for everyone. We were a group of 6 and the trout seemed to be the most ordered entree. It was great, as was the shrimp. The succotash was fun to eat, as I haven't had it in many years. Our waiter was very attentive and explained the preparation of the food... More

Recently we had a quick bite of a burger and garlic french fries plus a couple of adult beverages in the bar seating area. Service was prompt and food was very good and filling. We enjoyed the atmosphere and departed in time for a play.

We took a business colleague to Sea Change, the restaurant in the gorgeous Jean Nouvel designed Guthrie Theater. The space is huge, and as our reservations were after the pre-theater seating it was quiet. Our waitress was first class, friendly, attentive, helpful with food choices (a member of our party had a shellfish allergy and Sea Change is a seafood/fish... More

The biscuit was tender, flavorful, with a nice tender crunch to the outside - freshly baked I think... The gravy was well seasoned with nice chunks of sausage. Poached eggs were cooked perfectly and added a richness to the gravy. My friend ordered fries which are delicious on their own, but when bathed in the gravy are divine!! Yummmy!!

Oysters excellent, must have the soup and octopus as starters. The cod was ever so flakey. Trout YES

Other than fish , menu is very limited . Food was only fair , but the service was great . Sea Change has a wonderful location ( part of the Guthrie complex ) and the inside is beautiful , so it is a shame that the restaurant does not serve great food .

We stopped here on our way to a show at the Guthrie. They understand the need to get to the show, so the staff are attentive and prompt. The food is essentially from the sea and I would call it a bit eclectic. There were a number of interesting items, but the portions were a bit small for the price.... More

Highly recommend the Octopus Starter, very tender and delicious. Nicely presented food. It's close the Guthrie Theater and outdoor viewing area for Bridge to Nowhere. We went there after dinner for a beautiful night view.

A bit busy next to the Guthrie but a friendly person kindly "took care" of us, party of four, wanting post-theater drinks and something to snack on. Thanks for the attention! Best dish was the savory clams -- really good. Will be back (and we've been here for dinner, too)

To be honest, we never did actually eat at the restaurant. We had reservations this week prior to a Guthrie show. We enjoyed cocktails at the bar and really liked the bartender, Ray. First, we were very turned off by the lack of cleanliness we observed in the short time we were at sea change. There were layers of dusk... More
