Everything was fine. It is a very nice atmosphere. There were not many people in our area so our group was able to have a nice dinner conversation among the whole table. The one comment I would make is we were seated on the street level near the open stairway. A group downstairs started to get loud and the stairway was like a megaphone. We couldn't quite hear the jokes but we knew if it was funny. I would be concerned if there would be a full house how loud the volume would be.

Convention Center Convenient
Was in Minneapolis for a trade show at the Convention Center. Both an associate and I had scheduled lunch meetings with clients. Surprisingly there are almost no restaurants near the Convention Center. Found P&F and though it had mixed reviews, decide to give it a try as did my co-worker.
Restaurant was a few minutes walk from the Convention Center. Ambiance was fine although after it filled up, it got fairly noisy. There was a limited lunch menu and the food was good. Wouldn't say outstanding but definitely some interesting choices. I had duck quesadilla. Charged extra for guacamole which they could never get away with in LA.
Bottom line is that Porter and Frye is great for a break from the the junk they serve at the Convention Center.

The food was excellent. We ate there and ordered food to go to eat later. It was excellent!

Porter & Frye Improvements
Porter & Frye is now a place to go for good food & cocktails! The menu has been much improved by a new chef and will please the diner who wants American food with a twist. The lobster mashed potatoes are a big hit, as well as the ever-popular Steak Diane.

Enjoyable Dinner for 8
I came here with a group of 8 and had a very enjoyable night. Good food, good service, good ambiance, etc. This is my third time dining at this restaurant and all have been very positive experiences. Highly recommended.

The service was exceptional, but the food was not as good as it used to be when it first opened--and neither was the dessert.

The evening special was ribs (german potato salad) and we were not expecting it to be such a good portion. We assumed that because it is a more upscale restaurant that the portions would be smaller. In this case the there were over 12 ribs. We split a caesar salad and the rib dinner and it was more than enough for both of us. The bread and butter were excellent too. We don't drink so cannot comment on beverages.
