It's been so long since going to Antsari's last. The food remains as good as it was pre-COVID, which isn't the case with all places. Fantastic food, good service, great beer selection. I highly recommend this restaurant.

The food & service is always excellent here & prices are reasonable. The appetizer sampler is great if you want a variety of different things. We order it for dinner. the baklava is very yummy too.

We have been frequenting Ansari's since it was still located at the present location of the Eagan Outlet Mall. In all of that time, we have never, repeat never, had any complaints about the service, quality of the food, the value for our dollar. Some establishments talk about making you feel welcome and at home, this restaurant has never failed to deliver on that motto.

This was not a good experience for us. The service was great. This restaurant is basically a sports bar that happens to serve Mediterranean food. We anticipated it to be more of a Mediterranean atmosphere. The calamari was very tough. The meals gyros dinner and gyros salad were not good either. We will not be returning.

Reservations times were not maintained. We waited for 40 minutes before we were sitted and another 50 minutes after placing the order. The restaurant didn’t follow the Covid guidelines of 6 feet distancing but the staff wore masks.
The food was very good and they served us with a complimentary dessert to apologize for the wait time.
The ambience was good except did not maintain the distance between the tables

We waited for a menu and was told to just take a picture of scan code and a menu would appear. Phone just doesn’t work that way unless there is an app installed but I tried it anyway and nothing happened. Same thing when I asked for a beer menu. It took quite a while to convince the staff I load a menu and was finally given a paper menu. Food was good and atmosphere nice outside.

Service was really poor because they were understaffed.. Food was sloppy and not plated correctly. People were smoking right next to us on the other side of the patio, which ruined the meal.

My wife and I have been eating at Ansari's for many years. It is one of our favorite restaurants in the metro area. The variety of food is unmatched, and all of it is amazing. Their beer selection is constantly changing and they always have some unusual varieties that you simply will not find anywhere else. The wait staff are attentive, polite, and always friendly. You will never have a bad meal or bad service here.
