St. Paul Grill and Bar
Taking my sister to dinnerMy sister is on a visit from Tucson. My husband and I wanted to take her out for a great meal. Her reaction to our dinner at the SPB&G was just what we were looking for - superior everything.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic venue, professional serviceA delight in every way: top-notch preparation and presentation with wonderful flavors delicately preserved. The waitstaff are seasoned professionals who know how important it is to be prompt, knowledgeable and unobtrusive. An experience to savor in surroundings that are a visual delight!5/21/2013 12:00:00 AManniversaryWe had dined here 6 years ago for our 35th wedding anniversary, and finally got back again last night. We had a wonderful evening, the food was beautiful and delicious, and John, our waiter, was attentive and helpful, but not intrusive. We will not wait so long to return next time.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMMore Than DependableOne expects the St. Paul Grill to be dependable--it's been there forever--and it is that, in all respects! But it is also more--great food, service, and ambiance, nice view of Rice Park, just a great place for nice lunch or dinner, or special occasion.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Anniversary OutingMy wife and I dined at The St. Paul Grill for our 17th Wedding Anniversary. We were very pleased with the excellent service, food, wine, and atmosphere of the restaurant. This is by far one of the best restaurants we have been to in many years. We will definately be back very soon to try something else on the menu.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMprix fixe dinnerwe had a pre-theatre dinner; restaurant wasn't busy. Excellent, cheerful server. Lovely ambience as always. 3 course meal, really mediocre food - selections seemed to have been chosen for quick, easy prep. Hadn't eaten at the St Paul Grill for some time but used to eat there often and food was excellent in the past. Now, there are better restaurants in the neighborhood. Joe5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMPre Ordway lunchThe "Grill" is a great place to eat prior to an Ordway performance. The food is good, the ambience is upbeat, though the service may get a little rushed if people do not show up on time for their reservations. We always leave for the show in an positive mood thanks to our lunch at the Grill.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Gluten Free MenuSt. Paul Grill has always been able to accommodate my gluten & dairy free diet. Now they have gone the extra mile and have a separate gluten free menu which makes it much easier to order. Every time I have dined there the food and service have been excellent.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food and serviceThe Grill consistenly does an excellent job with its cuisine. We have enjoyed many beef and fish entrees that are perfectly prepared and presented. And the wait staff is superb.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMspecial spotWhen I think of a special event, I think of the St. Paul Grille. It always reminds me of Tadich grill in San Francisco. It is elegant and of old world charm. It is a step above in every aspect, befitting of the St. Paul Hotel. I also like the location next to Rice park, the Ordway and Landmark center. A true gem.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWild PlayoffsWe brought one of our best customers to dinner and a playoff game. The Wild lost, but our dining experience was great. The staff was extremely accomodating, and the food was outstanding.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a winner in St. Paul.Food is never a disapointment! The only thing they could improve on is better chardonnay by the glass. Steaks are yummy.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is wonderful butThe food is wonderful but the noise can be an issue. Sitting in a booth just next to the kitchen, it was impossible to have a conversation. Wish it could be just a bit more conducive to conversation.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous food!Love the food and the ambience! A terrific view overlooking Rice Park.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMClassic diningWelcome to the St. Paul Grill, the premier restaurant in downtown St. Paul, Minnesota. I don't work for the Grill but like going there and typically do a few times a month. The restaurant is in my opinion, one of the top restaurants in Minnesota. The lunches are excellent and the dinners are even better. The interior is done in a classic dark wood finish which is really warm and inviting. The menu is a bit pricy, especially for dinner but it is absolutely worth it. The chefs here know how to cook a steak and do it correctly.4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe brunch was very good andThe brunch was very good and the service was excellent for our daughters 16th birthday. Highly recommend The Saint Paul Grill for any special occasion.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisy but goodOther than so much noise we could not have a conversation, it is a great place. Go there if you don't feel like talking with your dinner companions, or plan on yelling back and forth.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSt Paul GrillThe food and service was excellent!! Our only complain was that the tables were to close and the noise was so load that it made it hard to communicate!!!!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experienceWe had an outstanding experience at the St. Paul Grill and Bar. There was an April prix fixe menu which was a really good bargain. I had lamb for the appetizer, the ribeye with mushrooms for the main course, and a very rich chocolate cake with ice cream and caramel for dessert all for only $50. My wife had delicious trout with asparagus. The noise was moderate -- not subdued, but not overwhelmingly loud either. We were in the far end of the restaurant, though, and closer to the front near the bar was louder and more energetic. Our service was prompt and courteous. Overall we were extremely please with our experience.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSt. Paul Grill is a historicSt. Paul Grill is a historic place to dine. The view of the park and the Ordway is great and the food is always consistent.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner at the Grill wasOur dinner at the Grill was a total joy, from start to finish.

On this occasion, we did not get caramel rolls like we usuallly get, but got sweet rolls instead. we looked around and the place was packed, so we understood, that they can be out of things.our table was in a crowded place, but again, everything else was filled. The food was very good, cajun shrimp benedict. this was a first for us as a selection.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoy the St PaulWe really enjoy the St Paul Grill. The food and service is always outstanding. This past visit the parking situation was a little rough. The St Paul Grill does not have any accessible attached parking, so we due to the very wet weather of Sunday we were quite soaked by the time we got into the restaurant. My husband is in a wheelchair and drives an accessible van so valet parking is not an option either (?) because his van has no driver seat since his wheel chair locks into that place. Never the less once we got into the building we forgot about the wetness and had a lovely anniversary dinner. Thanks.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMthe smoked salmon eggs benedictthe smoked salmon eggs benedict was amazing....plus caramel rolls and mimosa gratis!!!!!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food & CocktailsMy wife and I came here for a date night on a Thursday. We shared the wedge salad as a starter, which was great. I had the scallops and she had the swordfish. Both entrees were fantastic. I had a barrel-aged Manhattan, which I would order again. One of the better Manhattan cocktails I have had in recent history. Overall, the restaurant was 4 out of 5 stars in my opinion. Great food and attentive service. Hostess could have been more friendly and the valet service could have been more organized, but those are minor complaints. On a previous visit, I enjoyed the bar area a little more. The restaurant was a little too quiet for my tastes on this visit and was what I would expect from any high end steak house that I have visited in the U.S.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAs usual, an excellent experience.As usual, an excellent experience.

I thought it was just a little pricy which may keep me away for more frequent visits.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMTry their Prix Fixe OfferingsFor a romantic night, request a seat facing Rice Park and consider their prix fixe menu offering with wine pairings. The night we went, we chose the French Onion soup paired with a Syrah for our first course, a tenderloin and a sea bass paired with a chardonnay for our second, and burnt crème paired with a 10-year old port for our third course. All the flavors were fresh and complemented each other well, and the portions were just right.
We will be visiting again to see what items they will offer next time we visit.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMVery very goodgreat service ... excellent traditional food ... superb wedge salad ... nice walleye ... family had steaks and enjoyed ... very fun place for very traditional, but delicious, meal3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMWE had only 50 minutes toWE had only 50 minutes to dine, due to OUR miscalculations.

The food, service and ambiance were great. I have always enjoyed eating here, and have never been disappointed. The portions are large enough to take home leftovers. The caramel roll was good, but not quite as soft/fresh as usual. Otherwise, the taste was very good. I loved my goat cheese omelet , and the hashbrowns were perfect. Our waitress couldn't have been nicer.
