A word from Muffuletta
"Chef Matt Ellison ... showcasing some of the best local farmers and letting their beautiful Midwestern products make his contemporary cooking arguments for him." Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl
- The daily-printed menu, filled with irresistible flavors and
tempting aromas, is truly a feast for the senses. The wine menu is hand-
picked by the Sommelier and also changes to reflect the seasonal
and ethnic influences of the cuisine. -
Jeremy Iggers of the Minneapolis Star Tribune describes the restaurant
as "a candle-lit chef-driven bistro with an imaginative globe-trotting menu."

Diner Reviews
  • "Never disappointed with food at Muffuletta. The location is pleasantly placed in a quiet neighborhood. Nice to sit on the patio on a beautiful day. Service is hit or miss...this time it wasn't so good."

  • "Food was fantastic, went with the prix fixe menu and our server had excellent recommendations for food and wine. Excellent service, very attentive waitress with a great knowledge of the menu."

  • "We had an amazing time sitting on the outdoor patio. The ambience was great and the food was delicious (homemade pasta and duck). We also enjoyed the cheese platter. The service was a little slow but not horrible. Great date night restaurant, especially on the patio. Will definitely plan to return."

  • "Surprised how old the crowd was. Fairly limited menu and a bit expensive. Didn't realize only had beer and wine. Sangria was good."

  • "Food was good, maybe a bit overpriced. The outdoor deck was great, after the hot rod parade went by!"

  • "Ever since moving to Saint Paul, I have been pleased with some of the ethnic cuisine available, but at an utter dismay at the quality of restaurants. Finding Muffuletta has given me hope that there is some real food here in town. I could not recommend this restaurant highly enough."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "I am normally very pleased with the food I have ordered in the past. However, the lightly breaded walleye was a huge disappointment. I like to order something that I don't like to attempt at home. But I could have thrown frozen fish in the oven and they would have tasted better. Sorry, but the honest truth."

  • "Haven't visited for several years. Food and service were excellent but over-priced. May be a while before I return."

  • "Muffy has lost a step. Always near the top of my restaurant favorites, I was underwhelmed with entrees and the service. Also surprised it ess such an expensive evening."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "I've never been here for dinner, but we had a great lunch. I had the chicken salad sandwich, my friend had carrot soup and a salad. Enormous portions, moderate prices. Our spot near a window felt private and fun. The restaurant has a rustic French cafe vibe. The food is really good. Friendly and attentive server."

  • "Awesome restaurant. Will definitely keep this place on my favorites list."

  • "Some "old-reliables" lose their reliability as time passes. The Muffuletta has kept fresh and reliable, a not so easy task. Apart from a slightly too-cool dining area, all went well. We were pleased."

  • "My associate and I went for lunch, beautiful Minnesota day, had choice seating on the deck with right amount of sun and shade. Salads were healthy and tasty. Service was responsive and attentive."

  • "We had a wonderful waitress, a beautiful evening to enjoy eating on their deck, and fabulous food."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "An enjoyable lunch with friends; not fancy but reasonable prices and a good selection of drinks. I had two if their main items: beer cheese soup (good, rich, not too heavy) and a muffaletta (very good and reasonable version compared to those I've had in New Orleans). My wife and friends had other salads and sandwiches which they enjoyed; my wife's beet salad in particular was a hit."

  • "I brought my cousin who was visiting from CA here for dinner. We wanted a quiet spot with great food so we could talk and catch up with each other. After we left, and were chatting on the sidewalk around the corner, our waiter came up to us and returned a bunch of cash that had fallen out of my cousin's pocket! He had noticed it on the bench where he had been sitting and tracked us down. Awesome!!! Oh, and the food is EXCELLENT. Would highly recommend."

  • "We were at Muffaletta for a birthday lunch/ brunch. The service was friendly and very attentive, and I loved being able to make the reservations online beforehand without charge. It was also good to send the secret note about a dessert for the birthday person online--it can be hard to sneak away to do that when you are in the restaurant. The menu choices were a mix of artful healthy plates, and good solid traditional dishes with a twist--all round good choices and something for everyone. It's a very attractive neighborhood, also good for walking around a bit before or after."

  • "Hadn't visited Muffaletta's for 30 years but came back to see if the magic was still there. IT WAS. Good food, pleasant service and reasonable.... will be back..."

  • "REALLY great service and very good food. Appreciated the vegetarian options. My only small quibble is that I thought the prices for entrees were all about $5 too high."
    Dined on 6/19/2014
  • "I found Muffuletta will searching for a restaurant idea on Open Table for my husbands birthday. The menu looked interesting to me. We were really surprised to find that it was located on this cute little corner area of town and has an adorable atmosphere. The service and food were also excellent. We will definitely go back again!"

  • "My guest, who came from LA and was here for a week of dinners, found Muffluletta the most comfortable and easy to enjoy of the various places we went. Of course he had never tasted beer cheese soup with popcorn so was delighted by it."

  • "We went to have brunch for fathers day and everything was great! Very friendly staff and the food was excellent! Great place tucked away in a quiet neighborhood."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We were pleased with the Salmon special but found conversation difficult, seated in the area adjacent the kitchen. As the meal progressed, perhaps I should say dragged on, our server devoted less attention, finally abandoning us. He appeared with the check and dared ask whether we wanted dessert which we did. He took our order and never reappeared. Dessert took forever and as we were about to abandon, it finally appeared."

  • "Haven't been there in years and it did not disappoint. We ate outside on a lovely evening. Food and service were great."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "There were three of us, each with our tastes and preferences. The choices were ample, and the server made them seem delicious in his description. And they were all as good as they sounded -- and a good price range too."
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Our outdoor lunch dining experience was off to a wonderful start. The food was delicious and it was a perfect day to be seated on the deck. Then we asked about dessert and made our selection. Several minutes passed and we were given long-handled spoons. We then observed our server, William H., attend to at least three other parties near us without ever bringing our dessert. He finally brought it and we were by then rushed to eat it and still return to work. He did not apologize for the considerable delay and I really think an apology was in order."

  • "Great, quiet ambiance on patio. Minimal intrusion from nearby Como Ave. You don't have to worry about anything but enjoying your company. The food, service, and wine/beer list are excellent and always reliable. This long time eatery is a gem."

  • "I picked this place from a list on Open Table and was happy to see that it lived up to my expectations. Nice neighborhood and surroundings and good food. Service was great. Will check it out again if in the area."

  • "Always pleased with the food options and presentations. Service is friendly and knowledgeable. Parking can be a problem, unless you don't mind walking a ways. Not the cheapest restaurant, but good for a special night out."

  • "An extremely satisfying dining experience on the deck. Good food. Good service. Good value!"

  • "I have always heard amazing things about Muffuletta however I had never been in the area to check it out until a few nights ago. The outdoor seating was wonderful and the food was to die for! Our server was right on the spot making sure our beverages were filled and that we had everything we needed plus he had a great personality. This is a wonderful spot that's easy to park at, I highly recommend if you are in the area to stop in and check it out!"

    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "We sat out on the patio on such a nice day out so was a great experience! Food was good but it was definitely sitting outside in the sun and enjoying the flowers on the tree next to the patio that made the experience great. Highly recommend the patio seating!"

  • "I tried the mini-muffuletta and it tasted bitter. The waitress agreed that the olive spread can become that way. I would have ordered something else but we had waited a long time already so I just asked for soup which was really salty. Salad, bread and wine were good and the outdoor dining at the last minute on a Sunday night was a delight. After dinner, we enjoyed walking to coffee in the neighborhood. "

  • "We had a beautiful evening dinner on the patio. Chef Matt outdid himself with the specials. I had a delicious seafood dinner with soft shell crab and my wife had a salmon fillet with grilled vegetables. Our server was attentive and made a good suggestion for the appetizer with the cheese plate. "

  • "Had a great lunch on the patio on the first beautiful day of spring/summer. The food was good but the service was very slow. 1:45 minutes for a weekday lunch was a bit long. Because it was nice out it was hard to complain but it did get a bit long waiting on food and the bill."
