    The St. Paul Grill has always been outstanding in food quality, service and atmosphere. I took our daughter to the St. Paul Grill while my wife was in New York City. Even though she was in NYC, she was extremely envious to know we were enjoying a fabulous meal without her!! I would recommend the St. Paul Grill to anyone!

    We've been going to the grill for years and EVERY time it's fantastic! From the staff who are meticulous yet warm and inviting to the food that is simply perfect, we love our time there. On this visit, I had the beef tenderloin and it was absolutely ridiculous good! There aren't many in life, but the St Paul Grill is a guarantee!!

    Dined on 9/12/2014
    Table was by the windows affording a sunset view of the flower gardens and Rice Park, really added to the elegant atmosphere of the legendary St Paul Grill. We were greeted promptly on arrival and the hosted seated us at our table. One of the persons in the party was recovering from a recent injury was only able to walk slowly. This hostess adjusted her pace to the party which was a nice touch. The waiter quickly brought water, tolds us about the even specials and asked about drink orders. The pace for the evening was perfect. We loved the bacon blue cheese tomato soup. We almost wished we'd ordered a bowl as our main course. The steaks were cooked as ordered, were juicey and tender. The pork chop was huge. A great evening.

    Experience couldn't have been more memorable. Celebrating a special occasion and the Saint Paul Grill went above and beyond in making it a special event. They helped guide me to an appropriate florist for flowers for the table, the hostess Diane was warm and welcoming, our server Ryan seemed to take extra care. Our large table was off to the side out of the "rush" of the restaurant. Very nice experience.

    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.

    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.

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.
