Great food...too loud though
Food was fantastic for dinner, and a huge menu to choose from. The only disappointment was that they had the "background" music so loud that you had to shout over the table to hear each other. I come here all the time for lunch, but if you need to talk business over dinner, maybe not the place to be.

The food we had was very good, but we were there on a Sunday evening and they had run out of most of the seafood on the menu.

I went there with a group
I went there with a group of 12 for a special occasion on a Sunday evening. The restaurant was not busy at all! They were out of 4 - 5 menu items, which was disappointing, but the food and drinks we ordered were great! Everyone loved the food and the service was good as well. No complaints.

Nice, varied menu with good twists on routine menu items. Would return.

News Room = Great Breakfast!
We went to the News Room on Father's Day and had a great time. The breakfast was very tasty and they had a really unique menu to choose from. The ambiance was great, especially the bar sailing ship, which made the room look huge. Look forward to going here for dinner/drinks sometime.

Arrived a bit before our schedule
Arrived a bit before our schedule reservations and the hostess seated us early so that we would not miss out on the happy hour specials. Thought that this was really nice of them to do :) Menu was really varied and everyone loved their meals, especially the burgers.

Good place to be seen!
The News room is a great scene, vibrant and energetic. The service is impeccible, and atmosphere fun. The food quality is better than some, but not exceptional.

Can make anyone a martini fan
We had wanted to go to The News Room to sit outside on a lovely summer evening, sip a martini, enjoy a great meal, great view and relax. We make this a goal once every summer (as well as staying at one of the great downtown hotels). Better yet the Dakota Jazz Fest was going on. Unfortunately my husband broke his foot the day before. Never the less we were determined to go to minneapolis and The News Room. The weather turned cold and rainy ruining our plans to sit outside. We almost decided to give up an order pizza but then decided to hobble our way through the rain. It was worth every moment! Our food was excellent, the service friendly and the martinis were awesome! They also served as great pain killer! Highly recommended.

Al Fresco Dining on Nicollete Ave
I dine at the News Room frequently when I visit Downtown Minneapolis. It is very enjoyable in the summer to sit out on the sidewalk dining area on Nicolette Ave and people watch while having apps and cocktails. The food here is slightly high priced for what it is, however not enough to turn away a fair number of regular and fun diners- like myself. My only true disappointment in tonight's experience was that we arrived at a reasonable time in the dinner service, and they were already sold out of a number of items on the menu- and apparently the sous chef was unable to understand some components in other menu items (according to our server).
Overall, very relaxed atmosphere, and I would highly recommend the short ribs- TASTY.

For a spots fan and pre or post athletic event, it's great. Our server was great and moved us to a quieter spot. Food was good.

Good Kick-off to Broadway Show
Great spot for gathering before going to the Orpheum, right around the corner. WIndows open onto NIcollet Mall for a great indoor/outdoor experience. Food was delicious and beer list is outstanding. Fun, interesting decor. Would definitely recommend!

Great food & service - large group
We had a large work group (14 people) for dinner and the service was great. Our waiter was attentive and kept the atmosphere festive. Some of my co-workers had the Ahi Tuna and loved it, I had the pork tenderloin which was also wonderful. Everyone enjoyed their food and were happy with the whole event.

I've been to The News Room a couple of times before and have always enjoyed it. The staff and food were both very good. It's also nice to enjoy a layout that's not "cookie cutter" looking.
It's conveniently located in an excellent part of downtown Minneapolis.

A good option
Stopped by on a Sunday prior to a 1:00 Showtime at a neighborhood theater. Clean, comfortable location with great decor. A variety of clientele including Vikings fans, other theater patrons and local downtown residents. Food was good and plentiful although it was interesting that they could not provide any wheat toast with breakfast -- apparently they were "out" even though there is a grocery store right across the street. The steak burrito was very good as was the green eggs and ham Panini, the hash and the Huevos rancheros. The potatoes were good but somewhat over salted. Prices were reasonable and the service was acceptable. The Bloody Mary was "Spicy", but we were properly warned and the beer chaser helped balance the spice.

Good food and value
I was at the NewsRoom with some international colleagues for business. We found the food and service very good.

Great place before the play.
My wife and I are here before seeing Wicked at the Orpheum Theater. It was a fun place with good food. The theater was just a few blocks away. We were seated in time to order $4 happy hour wine that was actually pretty good. The food was tasty, especially for the price.

great service and food!
we always forget about this place, been here forever and it's always really good!

Perfect date night restaurant
If you're looking for just a spectacular place to eat, this is it. The food was sublime; I got the lasagna, and my boyfriend the steak; we also had brie curds with blueberry dipping sauce for an appetizer and creme brulee for dessert. It was all wonderful. The steak especially was so juicy, and the brie curds (deep-fried chunks of brie) were different and wonderful. The atmosphere was really unique and interesting. It was more on the expensive side, but for the quality and amount of food you get, it's incredibly reasonably priced. It was a perfect date night and I would highly recommend this restaurant.

Great for Grandma, too!
Food was excellent. Staff very helpful, especially as we needed a quiet spot for my 83-year-old hard-of-hearing mother who was visiting from out of town. Have two teenagers and they enjoyed exploring the restaurant and reading all the old headlines. Service was marvelous (Fernando?), food equally so. Staff even complied when we asked them to turn down the music a bit (see above mention about Grandma's ears). And the Open Table reservation process was so easy, it was unbelievable. Good job, all!

never bad food or service here. Nice size menu and good consistency with food. We come here fairly frequently, always a good bet

My date and I had a wonderful time when grabbing a little late night dessert. The staff was courteous, the atmosphere and overall aesthetic were tremendous - we had a great time. I will definitely be returning in the summertime to try out the patio.

I recently ate at The Newsroom with a group of 8 people prior to "Rock of Ages". What a great find this restaurant was. We were able to sit outside (a lot of outdoor spaces) and it was fantastic. Our server was great, he warned us that two big groups were coming in (Prom) and that we should get our order in before them so we would make it to our show on time, that was great of him to warn of us of the big parties coming in. Love the food and bar menu. I would recommend this to my friends and will be back myself.
