  • "We were celebrating our 1st wedding anniversary, as well as my wife's 76th birthday, and it was great. The food and service were outstanding. I'm somewhat handicapped, and everybody went out of their way to accommodate my needs. We were all more than satisfied with our choice of the St. Paul Grill for our celebration. Thank you all."

  • "St. Paul Grill is consistently an excellent place for lunch. Service is attentive without hovering. Although not everyone's favorite, I love their calf liver, onions, and bacon lunch. Fork tender and flavorful!"

  • "Food preparation could have been better. Trout was somewhat dry and needed a sauce. French fry portion size was excessive. Meal was expensive, especially the wine list. However, service was excellent."
    Dined on 6/26/2014
  • "It's pricey, but good. If I knew I would be spending $180 on dinner for two, I would have went someplace else. Still, the food was good but maybe not the best value. Great wine selection."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Everything with the reservation and level of service at the restaurant was great. The noise level was a bit of a distraction, but yet it had a lively vibe and did not take away from the experience my guest and I had. Very attentive and respectful staff. The food was terrific. The Landmark Salad was one of the best salads I've had."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "We have been to St Paul Grill many times and have always enjoyed the food and the service. Our last visit the food was still fantastic but our service was not great, which was very disappointing. Our waiter seemed very uninterested in waiting on us and we had to flag him down for drink orders and dinner orders and he never stopped to see if we needed anything all evening. It was a Thursday evening and it was not very busy. When a total bill (not including tip) for four people was $271 one would expect more!"

  • "The brunch could not have been better. Carmel rolls come with any entrée and were delicious. My omlet was huge and the hash browns on the side were the best. Upscale setting and lovely garden."

  • "AFter an initial kerfuffel with our reserved table being in the hallway next to the kitchen (c'mon, what a terrible place to put someone who made a reservation months ago!) and their initial reluctance to move us, once settled into an appropriate place, the food and service was again marvelous. there are few places better than this in Minnesota. you pay for it, but they deliver pretty much every time."

  • "The St Paul Grill is a dinning destination. There is nothing more St. Paul then the St. Paul Grill. Great Fathers Day was had by all, including Dad, even if he had to pay. A good choice for the ambience that makes an occasion special."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Great food, awful service. I had to ask multiple times for my drink order and it took over 2 hours to get our meal. In my opinion it seemed as if the waitress did not care about our table because we were younger 30ish. The table next to us arrived 20 minutes after us and ordered right before us and had their food, ate and left before we had ours. It was only after saying something did we get to give our order. Multiple times we ran out of drinks. This was suppose to be a special occasion and the dinner experience became a disappointment. I love the Saint Paul grill and this was the worst experience I have had there and I hope that it does not happen again or I will not be returning."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "The food was excellent. Our server was efficient. But, the prices were outrageous ($305 with tip for 5 people/4 entrees/3 glasses of wine). And, the food was very, very slow in coming. We sat down at 7:30PM and our entrees did not come out of the kitchen until 8:40PM. We had to leave with "doggie" bags as my 90+ year old mother-in-law needed to get home."

  • "As in the past, we had a very enjoyable dining experience. From our arrival at the restaurant to our departure, things were wonderful."

  • "We have enjoyed the Grill very much before ! This time , it was not good . The menu is not memorable , we each ordered a sandwich ,no thought to presentation when brought to our table. The prices would suggest otherwise , the dessert menu uninteresting . Strawberry shortcake was the featured dessert and it came to a table near ours . 6 inches tall ,dry looking circles of white cake , lots of whipped cream and a few berry's. We were glad we didn't order ~~~~~. Probably won't go back there again !!!!"

  • "The SPG is out go-to place for special occasions. The food is always prepared to perfection - we particularly like the fish options, and the service is exemplary."

  • "If a tablecloth and crumb brush turn you on, you'll love the St. Paul Grille and Bar. The food has always been wonderful there and the dark wood and high ceiling add an elegant, early 20th Century feel. For a simple, yet flavor-rich treat, start with the warm cheese appetizer. Great with that perfect glass of wine or a hard cider."

  • "Wow! What a treat. Wonderful soft eggs with lobster and creamy hash browns.Service was fantastic. Carmel roll to die for."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Waitress and all wait staff were exceptional. They answered your food quantity questions so we shared food plates (they provided additional plates without being asked). I felt the all the employees there must be paid a living wage and so were happy to put the best of the organization forward. This was our first experience at the St Paul Bar and Grill and will not be our last. We spent three hours at this urban oasis and are very happy with the experience."

  • "It was so nice to eat there in such a beautiful environment. The view out the windows was great, the food was great, the waiter was great and we had a lovely evening. Thanks!!"

  • "We came here to celebrate our anniversary and everything was almost perfect the service was fantastic the food was excellent we each ordered a steak and they were to die for. The only thing is that it's pretty energetic and that it's a little on the pricey side but when it was all said and done I was totally comfortable with the price... Totally worth it..."

  • "My grandson had his 18th Birthday celebration with his family at St. Paul Grill. Our guest list began with 17 and dwindled down to 12 when we arrived. The staff quickly made the adjustment for us and began to seat us. As it turned out we miscalculated the number of guests and were two seats short. However, the staff again quickly adjusted the table grouping without a hitch! We were embarrassed we put the staff through all of this, but the staff keep reassuring us it was ok with them and accommodated us beautifully. The food was as usual excellent, and the service beyond our expectations. Thank you for making a milestone event in my grandson's life so enjoyable and fun for him. "

  • "I wanted to mark my 60th birthday by doing something special so it was decided to spend a couple of nights at the St. Paul Hotel. What a wonderful place. Great ambiance and the St. Paul Grille is a very special restaurant for any occasion. Occasionally the hotel will have Afternoon Tea in their lobby so we were able to have that as part of out festivities as well. The very best thing about the hotel though is the staff. Very personable, very approachable, never pretensious or arrogant and with the reputation that the St. Paul Hotel has one might worry about putting on airs but the entire staff was very friendly and made me feel very relaxed. Thank you St. Paul Hotel for making my special day that much more special."

  • "As usual, the place is stylish, traditional with beautiful floral sprays. The staff is warm, professional without being 'stuffy'. The food is always prepared expertly and presentations simple and without pretense. My favorite is the pork chop entrée. Tender, tasty and juicy. Our waiter was helpful in making suggestions to my husband for both a cocktail and entrée. The server was delightful and humorous. Although I informed only reception that it was our anniversary when I made the reservation, plenty of staff wished us a happy one and asked about how many years. Personal, but non intrusive. A most pleasant surprise. All of these considerations made for a most romantic and memorable occasion for us. Pass up the Grill's hash browns? "

  • "as usual, everything was just about perfect----although my filet ordered medium looked burnt on top, it was tasty and succulent---my wife ordered a seafood pasta dish which she just raved about----and they gave us a free dessert on our anniversary which was a special touch---also enjoy their free parking at the lawson ramp----my only complaint is they no longer offer Corona beer---i may not be back unless they change their tune---there are simply too many other places"
