    There were five of us high school friends together and we had a great time. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere but our service wasn't great. We had reservations for five when I arrived the 5th chair was added last minute and there wasn't any silverware or small plate for her. Our server kept forgetting our drinks. Our server was pleasant though and polite. We are planning to be back in December. It's a beautiful restaurant comfortable seating,not too noisy. Our party ordered the chicken pot pie,and the macaroni is always great. I think it's safe to say anything on the menu is great. I have been there many times and everything I have tried has been enjoyable. We also had dessert and there are many selections.

    This is my second time here since they re- opened and my last. It takes WAY to long to get the food out of the kitchen. I order from their gluten free menu which I think is the issue because everyone around me who orders after I do, gets their food before me. The server even gave us free dessert this time because we waited so long. I won't be back but hope they fix their issues. I would say the food is average. I saw an apple cranberry salad they were offering on TV but it wasn't on the menu. Disappointed

    I was impressed with the modern updated look. The small but nicely designed bar has a comfortably sophisticated feel. I liked that there was a 3 oz. wine option and that expresso and cappuccino were available. Service was friendly. The flatbread appetizer with sausage and chunks of fresh Portobello was tasty. I enjoyed the Mandarin chicken salad; my husband the Portobello burger. Pricing choices were very good.

    We haven't been to the Lakeshore Grill since it has been remodeled. It was a great experience and the food was very good and our waiter was awesome. Tim did a wonderful job and added to a very nice experience. Lunch was on a Friday, so it was noisy, but we enjoyed it very much.We enjoyed it so much that we went back for dinner on Saturday.

    Enjoyed the atmosphere, food and service very much! The menu had many interesting choices without feeling overwhelming. The restaurant is small, which makes for a quaint setting, but also making reservations important. We had a wonderful server that was very attentive.

    We all loved sitting outside in the beautiful patio. The umbrellas were great for sitting in the shade. We all enjoyed our food and the service was great. I will definitely return. Our waiter, Abdu Isaak, was wonderful. It amazed all of us how he could remember all of our orders, without writing them down. We all enjoyed his sense of humor as well. He did a great job!

    We stopped in for a quick dinner. The redone decor is beautiful and they have an a large opening overlooking the patio. Very pretty. The food was good, although we both ordered salads and the amount of protein on them (chicken for one, salmon for the other) was minimal. Would like to see a slightly larger amount of protein, even if you have to pay a dollar or two more. Service was very good. Server was very friendly and attentive.

    I love the renovation of the Macy's Lakeshore Grill Restaurant at Ridgedale. I ordered a Gluten free salad that was excellent. I can't wait to return. Our waiter was delightful, and everyone was so friendly. It was fun seeing our waiters new twin babies. The place is beautiful and the food was wonderful.

    ...they had more gluten free options. I've grown up going to this restaurant, loved it before, and the renovation is gorgeous. I even know all my favorite selections on the non gluten free menu, which are great. But, since I discovered my gluten allergy, they have one of the most limited entree selections I've seen in any current restaurant and my meal was extremely boring. I have a heart connection with this restaurant so it pains me to think they are so far behind the times with gluten free options when their new, fresh look is so beautiful. I will give this place 5 stars for their ambiance and regular menu, but, their lack of options for allergy sufferers disappointed me.

    The newly remodeled restaurant is absolutely lovely! The chandelier from the River Room restaurant at the St Paul Macy's graces the interior, it is spacious, and boasts a beautiful quiet patio. And of course they still serve their signature mini popovers. Our server was attentive and helpful. Willd definitely be returning!

    My husband and I went here for lunch on our anniversary. The restaurant is brand new and is very clean and bright. There was a decent crowd but we were seated right away with our reservation. The food was delicious! I had the baked mac and cheese which was wonderfully creamy. My husband had one of the specialty burgers on a pretzel bun. Our server, Matt made great recommendations about menu items to try and was very attentive to us the entire meal, without feeling intrusive. I would definitely go back again and bring friends!

    The food was excellent. I was glad everyone liked it as I could tell the men (my bosses) thought it was a strange choice but, the food was enjoyed by everyone. The popovers certainly have gotten tiny - still delicious but quite tiny. I had not been there since it had been remodeled. It was nice but we had picked it partially because it was quiet and that has changed but it was ok.

    The hostess and server were inviting and efficient, awesome, in fact. The food, consistently delicious. But, I was disappointed that the 'make-over' of the a favorite restaurant merely reduced it to an ordinary, noisy eating place. The ambience that was so inviting through the years, is now gone. I loved going there, knowing it would have a certain classy but comfy elegance, and good food. The food is still good, but to what end? Putting up with a noisy, bustling bar, eat-in-the-open style is not for me, regardless of the food. An Uptown experience maybe?. Going to Southdale Lakeshore Grill, and hope it doesn't meet the same fate. Updated doesn't mean better. I'm bummed. Decibel levels matter, as does Ambience.
