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

You can't beat the convenience of Sea Change when attending a production at the Guthrie! The food is always interesting, creative and well prepared. The portions are not large, but that is exactly what I want when dining before attending a theater production. I like the ambiance, but the seating is not comfortable for men over 6' 2".

Lovely space. Interesting menu. Good service. Outstanding langostinos! Staff are very tuned into time needs if you're attending a show at the Guthrie.

Ryder Cup week in Minneapolis. Restaurant fairly busy. Recommended by our hotel. The was a top class experience from the minute we entered the door. The professional waiting staff greeted us warmly and were very attentive. The food was very very good, with as you might expect the emphasis on sea food. I tried the hangar steak which you might...

We were with a large party here, service was fantastic. The food was amazing, the seafood starter was incredible. Desserts were service in large portions and you helped yourself.

Thank CMDow
