Diner Reviews
  • "Food was excellent, very flavorful. Given their prices, we expected a higher level of service. For example, water was not refilled promptly, unused place settings were left on the table, server appeared to be "missing" from time to time. (It was not busy in the dining room.)"

  • "I have eaten here in the past before shows at the Ordway. However the last time the only things good were the Riesling, French onion soup, and Caesar salad. The exterior of the ribeye and the fillet were burnt. The waitress asked how they were when they were delivered, but I never saw the waitress again. I wasn't able to send the steaks back, order another bottle of wine or anything else. Our dinner dishes were cleared and we had to wait 15 minutes before our waitress handed us desert menus and disappeared again, at that point we barely had time for a coffee. We ordered coffee with the check please. NO CHECK. I had to ask the busboy for our check. I will have to seriously consider whether or not to visit again."

  • "We have been to the St. Paul Grill many times and have always enjoyed it. Sunday night the 17th was not the Grill's best effort. It could have been our fault we ordered seafood. My wife had the seafood linguine and I had the trout. I asked my wife if the linguine was as good as I make, she said maybe. We took most of it home and are throwing it out today. For the Trout, yes I can do better. Why didn't we say anything, it was my wife's birthday and we just wanted to have fun. Again we like the grill, I am sure they just had a bad night."

  • "We ordered a medium-cooked filet and it came well done. No offer of compensation other than...can we reheat your vegetables...when they brought us a new steak 7 minutes later. Our favorite steak house would have done something other than bring us a new steak."

  • "We had the Escargot, Crab Cake, Halibut, and Walleye! Absolutely delicious! Topped with a really good Chocolate Martini! Service was very good! A lovely evening!"

  • "We had a fabulous time. Wild mushroom soup was simply amazing. Can't believe I'm reviewing the soup. It was that good. Side of hashbrowns would feed four or six people. Wish I had known! Great experience."

  • "Had a wonderful dinner before the Ordway. To keep things "light" for sitting at a play, I ordered the crab cake appetizer. So full of meat only. Just love it. My husband's steak was cooked to perfection."

  • "I took a friend here one summer evening for her birthday. The wait service was fine. We each ordered a large dinner salad as a main course. The salads were soggy and flavorless. Her's was vegetarion and mine was the charred salmon. The salmon was not charred but maybe baked and dry. The waitress brought a chocolate cake with some whipped cream & raspberries as a free dessert for my friend. The cake was also hard & dry. Including drinks, tax, & a generous tip the bill was $125.00. Dinner at a local sandwich shop would have been much tastier & cheaper."

  • "We were celebrating my wife's birthday at your restaurant this past Friday evening. Several couples were seated at the same time as us and were waited on much faster than us, served drinks and food quicker than us as well. It seemed that our waitress would just forget about us at times and it didn't appear that she had that many other tables to wait on. Maybe she was just having a bad night. Other than slow service, everything else about our evening was very good. We will continue to visit your restarurant. Thank You."

  • "Dinner & brunch terrific! Dinner service perfect. Food was unexpectedly fine. Huge disappointment was no sticky buns at brunch! To make matters worse, the couple at the next table was loving theirs! How could they run out by 1 PM w/ many tables thereafter? Poor planning led to this disappointed diner."

  • "The occassion of visiting the St. Paul Grill was my mother's 92nd birthday. It was a brunch celebration and the food was outstanding, however, what was most memorable was how incrediably professional and courteous the entire staff was, from the doorman, to the hostess to our waiter. They were just amazing and everyone has a great time. Highly recommend and will definately head back again."

  • "This restaurant was recommended to me by a local. I made the reservation so that my wife and I could celebrate being together for 15 years. The menu had a great selection and everything on it sounded so-o-o-o good. The meals we selected were excellent. Afterwards, the selection of dessert was almost as difficult. I didn't think that we would be able to eat the entire portion, but we managed. The wine list was extensive. The service was very attentive. Our waiter answered all our questions and made some fine recommendations. The entire staff we met were very friendly."

  • "I was in St Paul for work and asked a friend from there where I should take a client for dinner and I was told of one place- St Paul Grill and Bar and it exceeded expectations. From the atmosphere, clubby, warm, inviting to our waiter who was knowledgable, funny and attentive. I ordered a steak, yes being from Chicago, and it was absolutely delicious. Only part of meal that I was not that happy about was dessert, I had key lime pie and it tasted spoiled and the waiter apologized and took it off our bill so they did the right thing. Huge thumbs up."

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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"
