We all tried something different and everyone enjoyed it.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of our favorite placesOne of our favorite places in the Twin Cities. Comfort food with a twist.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMneighborhood diamond in the roughOverall a very good experience. The food was decent, the tartare and the burger were amazing, but the poutine was not what we expected. There was a herb that over powered the whole dish and that's all you could taste. Not very good. The service was good, however a bit on the slow side. I am guessing she had tables in another section other than the bar, or at least I hope so. I would definitely recommend this place, and have.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMNeeded a place for lunch andNeeded a place for lunch and went to OpenTable to find me something new. My boyfriend and I really enjoyed our lunchtime meal. I had the chicken sandwich and he had the rueben. His remarks were: "Now THIS is the Rueben I've been waiting to taste!". He loved it! I loved the flavorful chicken complimented by three cheeses, bacon, avocado and a spicy aioli sauce.
The beer menu is extensive and awesome and has something for everyone. We both love dark beer - I tried the New Holland Dragon's Milk and he tried the Left Hand Milk Stout. Both yummy. His was creamy and mine had bite. Perfect!4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing beer selection, yummyAmazing beer selection, yummy food, and a fun place to be. Server was just okay, but everyone else was very helpful and friendly. Would like to sit outside when the weather gets warm!4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great place to goThis is a great place to go for small groups. The dining room is small. The food is delicious. I definitely recommend reservations. It is very busy and fills up fast. It is very crowded on the weekend.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed a wonderful selectionEnjoyed a wonderful selection of beer and wine! The poutine was to die for! And the duck burger was out of this world!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLove the Happy Gnome!!!!Love the Happy Gnome!!!! Brunch on the weekends is fantastic. This time around I tried the baked French Toast which was delicious and my friend had the BELTA which was delicious. Live music is a nice touch for Sunday Brunch.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Brunch!We greatly enjoyed our brunch. We started with an "appetizer" of housemade bacon (amazing) while we waited for our friends. The Bloody Mary bar alone could have been breakfast but we did order entrees. My 'vegetarian' eggs rancheros benedict were SO delicious! Everyone was happy with their meals and the service as well. I highly recommend for brunch! And they gave me a free dessert (not that I really had room for it) for my birthday :)3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMI had 2 friends come in forI had 2 friends come in for a visit. The staff was appropriately attentive, not hovering, but always available. Our waitress did an excellent job, both putting up with 3 jokers out for an evening of enjoyment, but also with beer recommendations. The kitchen delivered 3 entrees that were expertly prepared, appropriately sized, plated very well, and that tasted fantastic.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable GnomeHave yet to have a bad experience at the Gnome, whether upstairs in the more elegant space, in the main seating area downstairs or at the bar. The food is always very good and the whiskey list is as well.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have never been, lovedWe have never been, loved the craft beers and our food was very unique and good. We sat in the back of the restaurant on the main floor, next time would probably enjoy teh bar area or outside in the summer better, but the restaurant was fine- just very chilly next to the window.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
