    On Mother’s Day. There was a brunch. I order a bottle of wine which cost $35 and got charged $30 or service (service: bottler holder with ice). Really bad service, all tables were dirty and wet, There weren’t way to walk. Everything too small. I won’t go there anymore!

    The food/beer at this place is fabulous. However, with a reservation, we waited for 50minutes to have anyone come by our table - even after flagging servers down twice (each time we were told we were someone else's table so neither person helped us).

    Been here a few times now, and they definitely have a consistently strong beer list. Last visit was uneven (again). Fantastic beers, but order to getting them was forever. From ordering to getting food: forever. And it isn’t the servers, who I see constantly moving, taking orders, delivering orders, etc. It is frustrating though. Food on this occasion was decent. I had the gyro platter which was just okay. As a Greek place I would expect their gyro game to be on point, and it’s just meh. Kid 1 ate his mini corn dogs no problem, kid 2 hooked her chicken Caesar salad. Wife’s platter was okay, hummus was good. It is a decent place and I love the beer selection (and I love that they take reservations) but it is hard to convince my family to go when the food and wait times are so uneven.

    The Jerusalem plate and the vegetarian plate were good, but the men had to send back the shrimp due to it tasting old and tough. The waitress was good about this, but unfortunately the second serving of shrimp was still old and tough. The NY strip was good but not great, according to them. Fun atmosphere, but a bit loud.

    Ansari’s is always a delight. Very crowded and noisy on a Saturday night, they have a belly dancer too. The food is always, always amazing and delicious every time. The rotating beer selection is great too. I can’t say enough good things about this place.

    This was our first time here and we didn’t know what to expect. Our kids loved the music, the belly dancer, and the food. There were a lot of families and definitely kid-friendly atmosphere. Our server was very attentive and guided us thru the digital menu with some recommendations. We will definitely be back as this is somewhere our kids really enjoyed. Good food! Great atmosphere! Wonderful service!

    Fabulous as always! A local gem that gives back to the community. Food and atmosphere are great, with good selections for kids meals. They also have a good sized bar area towards the back. Ansari’s has quickly become one of our favorite places to go in and around Eagan.

    My husband, mother-in-law, and I went to celebrate my husband's birthday. My husband had the Lamb Lover's meal and it was to die for. The shank was fall-off-the-bone tender and the meal was plentiful! My mother-in-law had the lamb sliders and she loved them! I had the Shish Taouk which was also plentiful (for me!). Everything was so full of flavor and delicious. We topped the meal off with some Turkish coffee which was divine, the baklava combo to share and a shot of ouzo. The decor could use some updating and repair and the service was adequate for a quiet Monday evening. That said, we will definitely be back to explore more menu items.

    Ansari’s was so good, I went there 2 nights in a row. The staff were friendly and inviting and made some great recommendations. They have an incredible beer list and I wish I could’ve tried more. The Shawarma salad is loaded with meat and I could barely finish it. One night I had the lentil soup and it was so good. Almost thick enough for a spoon to stand up - I got a cup but a bowl with some pita bread would make a hearty lunch. I was so impressed with the Falafel that I had yo ask if they were made on site. They weren’t dry at all. They’re made in house and you can tell. I’ll definitely visit again!!

    After waiting over 20 minutes we had to flag down someone to help us or track down our server. It seemed like everyone was attempting to avoid eye contact while walking by and we considered leaving. After someone came over the service improved.

    Ansari’s offers great food and excellent service at great prices. The atmosphere is somewhat open and can be loud, particularly in the bar area, so not the perfect place for date night. But if you are looking for a relaxing environment to get a good, authentic meal, I would definitely recommend!

    This was my first trip to Ansari’s and I will go back again and again. Service was top notch! Our server was told by the hostess that this was our first visit. When Jason got to the table he made great suggestions, filled us in about the history of the family restaurant and was really engaging. Best calamari I’ve ever had and all the other food was phenomenal! Everything tasted really fresh and was presented beautifully. We both had half a plate left over for lunch the next day. Great job Ansari’s!

    The saganaki was wonderfully fun Opa! The portion sizes were huge, too big for me so I took some home. We had the lamb burger and the gyro plate (that was a bit too salty for my tastes). I wish we had room for dessert, I really wanted to try one.

    Ansaris offers excellent food at reasonable prices and truly outstanding service. Only complaint is the noise level…dining area flows right into a very busy bar. This is not the place to go for a quiet dinner. Certainly worth the trip, however, and we’ll put up with the noise as long as the rest stays the same!
