    The restaurant serves lunch, but dinner is the real meal to go for, with an extensive raw bar that showcases the restaurant's creativity and its commitment to sustainable seafood. [Eater 18 Member]

    Sit at the bar for the late happy hour. Bartenders are quick with a great sense of humor. Order one of every bar happy hour special- then sit back and enjoy!!

    Crispy tofu is tasty when they don't put charred leek powder on it The powder tastes like ashes from a fire pit after you drop a toasted marsh mellow in it. The tofu is very scant for $21 ask for more

    The bouillonbase is spectacular along with the fried oysters. Careful, only a very select menu for happy hour.

    The octopus starter was delicious! So tender! 🐙 Service was quite slow, but if you are patient the food is good.

    Bouillabaisse and Arctic Char are exceptionally good. Wine and Bouillabaisse - what more can you ask for?

    Take the waiters' suggestion on what to get as it's all very fresh and they'll know. Also, excellent imaginative drinks.

    Not just for Guthrie goers...they have great happy hour drink specials daily at the bar! $3 Nordeast & $6 wines by the glass.

    Oysters are top notch. "Tall Paul" is my favorite server in the Tri-state area.

    Sit at the raw bar for one of the most interesting alcohol experiences in Minneapolis, thanks to the bar's straight-talking, oyster-shucking chef.

    For you beer drinkers - Order the Fulton 'Lonely Blonde Ale'. Hard to find, but it's incredible.

    Try the Langoustines. These sweet babies are a better choice, kicked with hot oil and a bit of rosemary.

    Food is prepared and presented well. It's high quality. But given the prices, Sea Change is completely underwhelming... Staff is over attentive in an odd way, the menu is limited and not inventive.

    Would have loved to try dessert but waiter ignored us for so long we didn't have time before our play. So come 3 hours early if you're planning for dessert.

    Used to be my friends' hangout but the service under the new manager has gone down. Even with the good HH prices - will not be frequenting Sea change any more, or recommending it.
