My wife and her group had a good tiime at Firelake . Several of them had the buffalo burger and they said it was very good. The service is always good and the ambience is exceptional.

Terrific food with excellenservice
Our first time and we will definetly be back. My wife and I took our two teenagers and we all enjoyed a different menu selection. Poutine was a good way to start, the bison ribeye was perfect, my son enjoyed the prime rib, my daughter the flat iron steak, and my wife had soft shell crab. Everything was done as requested and the flavoring was superb. We can't wait to go back. Our waiter, Mike could not have been better!

Great Food & Generous Portions
Went here before the Tom Petty show on Saturday night and had an awesome dinner. Not a huge menu but some unique selections. Waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable about the menu and helpled us out with our selections. Very tasy dishes and appetizers. The main dishes were above average portions so be careful not to order too many sides!

Great food, with solid service. Prices are always a bit higher than usual, so something to take into consideration.

A Minnesota Specialty.
Great taste of Minnesota with a game menu and local varieties. Attentive and knowledgeable staff helped point out the dishes not to be missed and found the pork shop with ligonberry onion marmelade to be outstanding. tasty kale salad and solid wine choice made for a satisfying meal. other diners were equally happy and sated.

Walleye Hash - Yum !
A great varied menu for our group. The Walleye Hash was fantastic. The other dishes were also very good. Excellent service.

The Firelake is one of my favorite restaurants in Minneapolis. I would recommend anything and everything on their menu. I had the walleye burger for lunch yesterday and it was fabulous. I've also had the prime rib for dinner and that was equally as good. NEVER been disappointed! Great service as well.

This is the second time at
This is the second time at this modern, comfortable restaurant. The first time was for our 40th Wedding Anniversary party. Service both times was great! The food was also very enjoyable. I had Filet Mignon the first time, and Woodplank Salmon the second. Love their mashed potatoes!

The rotisserie chicken was
The rotisserie chicken was amazing! So juicy and full of flavor. We also really enjoyed the mushroom gnocci like entree, salads, popover and a fabulous amish chocolate peanut butter pie. Our server. Kaite, was outstanding!! Helpful, friendly, and fun. She really ensured we has a great experience!

I loved everything about this place & the food was very good.
8/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Went here for the first time with a friend from San Francisco. Food was really good and our server accommodated our need to be finished at a specific time.
We both had corn-related entrees - both delicious.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Dishes were on the big side and very very good!!! Loved this place and would come back.

Fresh, high quality food!
We went for an anniversary dinner - quiet, relaxed, service was top-notch!!! just enough attention to detail without hovering. The food was fresh, full of flavor, truly amazing! Hot foods were served hot and the cold was cold, As we were celebrating, we had appetizers to dessert, including a bottle of wine - Prices were reasonable - portions were just right - not the tiny amount of food on a large plate some places serve. Would highly recommend this for a quiet dinner with a special someone or with a group of friends!!
8/31/2013 5:00:00 PM
When we got to the restaurant, it was fairly empty, and the service was excellent. As the restaurant filled up, and our server was handling more diners, I was afraid the service would suffer. It did not. Our server was attentive without being intrusive. The highlight of the food was the Dark Chocolate Truffle Cake. It was amazing! We would definitely return.

Absolutely love it!
Firelake is our go-to restaurant for special occasions as it never disappoints. Fantastic food & service. We went a few weeks ago on the night after our wedding to kickoff the honeymoon and had a phenomenal meal. We did "chef's choice" and let them pick all our courses. The chef even came out to help serve our main course, a variety of their specialties. Food was superb and the restaurant treated us extra specially. The rotisserie chicken is great, fantastic desserts, tasty salads. My mixed green salad with apples, candied walnuts, blue cheese was wonderful. My wife's special salad with greens and beets and a type of mozzarella was delicious. Don't walk, run to this restaurant and give it a chance. It's not your typical hotel food.
9/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
Do yourself a favor and order a Popover with dinner. So good! And the Pork chops are the biggest you've ever seen in your life.

Special Night Out
The food was delicious! When it arrived I thought the portions were a little small, but in reality it was the perfect amount. I highly recommend saving room for dessert...it was amazing! The best part of the evening was the wait staff. They were very polite and attentive. The price was more reasonable than the surrounding restaurants, however, I do not know what their portion sizes are like. Definitely a nice place to go for a "quick" meal (not a fast food quick) before a show.

Nice lunch menu, good service
Business lunch. Nice menu, good service and nicely executed entrees. Nothing spectacular, just solid. I will add Firelake to my list of business lunch favorites.
9/19/2013 5:00:00 PM
Would recommend; Enjoyable lunch
I had lunch at Firelake with a colleague and had a solid, enjoyable experience. The atmosphere was very suiting for a business lunch, the staff was courteous, and the food was very good. Overall, a great experience that I would recommend for others to try.

our downtown Mpls. favorite
This is definitely our favorite place for breakfast or dinner when we are in Minneapolis. The menu is varied with plenty of options for large or smaller meals, the food is well prepared, attractively served, and main courses are ample. We are sorry they have made the bread basket a side, and we wish they had some tap beers, but our experiences here have all been positive and the wait staff is friendly and knowledgeable. It ends up being a pretty pricey meal, but we never feel cheated.
9/27/2013 5:00:00 PM
solid option for downtown dining
We had a great dinner at FireLake Grill on our recent trip to Minneapolis. My wife started with an excellent mushroom, leek, and wild rice soup and I had a some very good and spicy sausages wrapped in potato cakes (aka "hogs in a blanket"). For our entree we chose the flat iron steak frites, which was a moist and flavorful beef steak, served whole instead of slices as at some restaurants. We complemented our meal with an excellent wine from the excellent wine list. All in all, it was a very nice dinner!
9/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
A night out
Even tho this is attached to the Raddison it felt cozy and real. Many fun things to try, decent wine choices and lovely outdoor sidewalk space to feel the city vibe for an after dinner drink.

Excellent Meal and Service
We had an excellent meal here on a friday night. Atmosphere was wonderful and the food and service were second to none. Would definitely go back!!!
10/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Made date night reservations for this restaurant before the broadway show. It was an excellent choice. Our server was attentive, suggested favorite//popular dishes and described our menu questions to a tee. He even asked what our occasion was for dining that evening. When we told him we had theater tickets, he was mindful of our time and let us know when it was nearing the time to leave for the show. This is what an excellent customer service experience should be. The food was exquisite, seasonal and not your ordinary menu choices. We didn't have room round one for dessert so after the show, we went back for a late night treat. We would definitely recommend this place and will return to try other delicious options on the menu.
10/12/2013 5:00:00 PM
before a show or a game
This location is a great find for a pre-show or game. Easy to get in and out, excellent service and moderately priced.
10/21/2013 5:00:00 PM
We caught an early dinner at FireLake last Saturday before our theater date with WICKED at the Orpheum. Perfect location...just a short walk to the theater, and really good food...my gnudi was light and delicious! Our server was friendly and attentive but not intrusive, a real plus for me. We just agreed today that we will go again.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Wish I'd found this sooner
We had a great time at FireLake in Downtown Minneapolis. The food was excellent, traditional Minnesota food like Wild Rice with a new creative flair. Beautifully prepared Walleye, and the dessert...to die for...I had the Maple Bread pudding and as a confirmed chocoholic...this bread pudding blew my socks off. The service, last but really not least was exceptional. I highly recommend FireLake.
10/25/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great dinner, but server had issues
Our food was excellent, but the server was not of the same quality. He was slow to take our order and was not responsive to our needs. We would definitely return to FireLake, if we can have a different server!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Treat For Our Guests
We never hesitate to bring friends to FireLake Grill, especially if it's for a special occasion. On our last visit (10/26-13) we had the very best service from a young woman who knew her menu backwards and forwards, so was able to be very helpful as we made out dinner and wine selections. The food was delicious! This has been our "go to" restaurant for several years now!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food was amazing and great size portions. The ambience was great and it was very quiet. You can overlook the chefs at work and the décor was superb.

Tucked away in the Radisson Hotel
This is a gem of a restaurant tucked away in the Radisson hotel. Great food and great service. They do an amazing lunch pairing for only $10, well worth the price. Wonderful salads, sandwiches and soup. I've also been for breakfast and all I can say is YUM!
11/5/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Downtown Option
This is my favorite downtown Minneapolis restaurant. It may look deceiving as it is part of a hotel but this is much more than an ordinary hotel restaurant. I generally come to down a few times a year on business and always make sure to eat here at least once. The regional flare is great. I have never had anything bad on the menu.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great flavors. $33 filet was worth the experience!
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
This is the perfect place for a romantic dinner for 2, or a small group. The service was perfectly attentive and came when needed. Soft music played, and guests held conversations. The food blew us away, starting with Minnesota rice, mushroom and leek soup. It was like liquid velvet, earthy and great. We also had popovers that had the texture of warm, savory (not sweet) muffins. Have never had any as good as those. Prime rib and prawns were perfectly prepared, and the filet was also amazing. For dessert one of us tried apple crisp served in a cast iron mini skillet with butter pecan ice cream, and the other had bread pudding -- both delicious.
11/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good food in a quiet atmosphere
This was our first time at the FireLake and we were impressed. The food was good and it was a quiet spot that seemed very relaxing. I would recommend it for a date night when you want to talk or if you are out with family
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
fire lake was hot 11-20-13
The food was very very good . The wine the apps were fabulous. Our server Katy was unbelievable. Very pregnant but still worked hard for us and the rest she was taking care of. She alone made the evening very enjoyable. The rest was just a bonus. Thanks Fire Lake. See ya again soon.

A leisurely breakfast with a long absent friend and colleague was tolerated by an excellent wait staff. The food was superb, as I had expected from past dining experiences. I appreciated the service and patience of our waiter. I will return.

Cozy place on a cold night
So many things on the menu that were very tempting, but we decided to share the Mesquite Grilled Filet. We ordered it medium and it was done to perfection ... the mushroom sauce was very tasty. The servers were friendly, knowledgeable and prompt, and the atmosphere was quiet, warm and cozy ... a great choice for a romantic evening.

Great holiday dinner
We were there for Thanksgiving. They offer special dinner with everythingyou could want and more thanwe could eat. in addition to their regular menu. The restaurant has a comfortable cozy atmosphere
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went to Firelake because of a good TV review about their Thanksgiving feast. It is the first time we have not cooked at home for this occasion. The food was delicious and generous enough to get a little of that overfed feeling. I saw most people were also enjoying their meals. Excellent parking nearby.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
Had an excellent Thanksgiving Dinner with several of our friends (8 of us all together). Full traditional Thanksgiving meal. Most of us had leftovers for turkey sandwiches the next day. Vonnie was our waitress and she was exceptional. They seated us at a round table in a corner, which was perfect for conversations. A very pleasant holiday experience.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We enjoyed dinner at the FireLake Grill House so much the first time, we returned not long after for another great meal. Just as good the second time around.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went to Minneapolis for the Thanksgiving Weekend. Dined at Firelake five years ago. We had a wonderful meal then and a fabulous meal on Friday. The decor is warm and inviting. When Holidazzle was over, families came in for dinner.
We split our salad and entree which was ample for our appetites. The wild rice and farro was especially delicious with the duck. The wait staff was very attentive and cheery for the holiday.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a terrific meal dining on Rotisserie Prime Rib cooked to perfection and a Flat Iron steak with tiny fries (reminiscent of Steak Frites!). We started the meal with homemade potato chips served with two wonderful dips (the Blu Cheese was fantastic) and a well made bourbon old-fashioned. Our waiter Mike was not pushy or over-bearing but had exceptional knowledge of the food, it's preparation and he made great recommendations. He was enthusiastic and encouraging and honestly added immensely to our experience. We dined right after the Holidazzle Parade so thought it might be slower service but everything was terrific!
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
We were there to celebrate a birthday and it was great! Food good and pleasant atmosphere.
