Night out with my husband and made the reservations. Neither of us have been here before and we were surprised. In reading previous reviews I wasn’t sure what to expect. We had reservations and were seated right away with food menus. Took a bit for our waitress to arrive, had to ask for the drink menu. We then had to wait again for her to return to place a drink order. We ordered the Tuna tartare tower and Chicken wild rice soup the same time as our drinks.....the made it out before our drinks. Mains ordered when starters came out. Really no other issues after that. Service improved, unsure if they were understaffed. Staff was friendly. Food was served quickly and hot. Rib-eye ordered rare was just a bit under in part, but very tasty. Porterhouse pork chop and hash was great, was not a fan of the apple-pear sauce, seemed like it was poured out of a jar. Overall good experience. Valet was very nice.

The service was outstanding but the food was terrible. My wife had the chopped salad which entailed mainly iceberg lettuce that was brown around the edges indicating that it had been "chopped" some time ago. The avocado was equally unappealing and other ingredients were sparse. I had the blackened chicken carbonara which was better - it had a nice smokey creme sauce but the chicken was way overcooked.

To our servers credit, he observed the poor quality of the salad and removed it from our bill. The decor of the restaurant was beautiful and the service outstanding but the food quality was a deal-breaker.

We went for lunch during Bank's Thanksgiving buffet. The service was outstanding -- glasses were always filled and everyone, from server to the gentleman carving the meat, were very friendly. Only reason I give this a 4/5 stars is because the food didn't wow me. There was a lot of variety but the food was kind of bland in that it didn't seem to have tons of flavor. The raw shrimp was squishy, like maybe it had been frozen (I can't imagine it's really easy to get fresh shrimp in Minnesota in November though). Overall a good experience, and I'd consider returning for a non-Thanksgiving meal.

Very nice ambience, great lounge guitarist/singer. Food took a little long coming out. Apparently if someone in your group orders beer chicken it lengthens time for table to get it's food. Ribeye steak was ok but overcooked -- ordered medium and it was well done. Probably overcooked waiting on beer chicken. Chicken and wild rice soup was very good.

We planned to be able to be there for an hour and half before an event, it took over 10 minutes to get someone to take our drink order, we waited another great amount of time to receive our drinks to have the server realize they weren’t correct and we waited again. We decided that we should order our food as soon as the server came back with our drinks which seemed like an inconvenience to the server, even though she was already at our table.

Your restaurant is inside of an upscale hotel, your service should reflect that.

Great location. But very limited menu. More bar seating that restaurant ambiance. We had steaks excellent and the twice baked potato was a nice addition. Side salad was expensive but nothing impressive. Soup was tasty. Drinks expensive but it’s a Westin hotel so not surprised!

The service was some of the worst ever experienced at a downtown business lunch location. We were seated and given water. Then the server disappeared for almost 30 minutes. Returned to take our order, and the food came 20 minutes or so later. Never checked back on our table of four post delivering the food. My entree was not as described in the menu, so I had to get up and return it. Explained the situation to the host, and he didn't seem interested in helping resolve. So talked to what appeared to be a kitchen lead. They did not understand the urgency of the situation. The server eventually returned long after we were finished eating to refill our waters, but never took our plates, asked if we wanted dessert, or asked if we wanted the check. We asked the host for the check, but he couldn't help, since it seemed he was going on break. Finally one of us got up to find someone to bring the check. Almost two hours later, we were finished. This was an utterly embarrassing business lunch, as I had partners in attendance from out of town. I've had good experiences in recent weeks here, but I can't take the gamble that I will have another similar to this one.

Very noisy and extremely cold (October, but snowing). We wore our coats the whole time. Our waiter was doing his absolute best running around like mad, servicing every table all by himself, but despite his best efforts we waited 25 minutes for our wine. If you come here at all, come to flirt at the noisy bar with drunk businessmen and watch WWF wrestling on the many screens. We came here for elegant dining and it was a serious mistake. This is a bar first, restaurant second. Even at 6:30 in the evening.

Good personal service in a unique, interesting setting. Calamari was OK and a small dish. Salmon and pork loin were excellent. But entrees were delayed and rice pilaf wasn’t served same time as meal. Would still recommend even with missteps.

The event was a business dinner. The restaurant was selected because it projects a formal image on line. It may live up to that image most days of the week. However, the restaurant was a great deal more casual due to the home football game. I was a little disappointed. The staff seated us in a quieter booth area that helped. The food was great but the atmosphere was different than what I expected.

The restaurant wasn’t busy when we were seated, yet it took about 15m to even get waters. When the server seemed to be the only one taking orders for the whole restaurant besides the bar. Our food took about 60 minutes and seemed as to be sitting for awhile before we received it. Our waiter himself was very polite, helpful, and apologetic for everything. Unfortunately his help wasn’t very helpful to us. Wasn’t the best birthday dinner to take my fiancé to.
Also about 1/2 the menu listed on open table has been removed.

Open Table misled us to Bank. We were looking for a steakhouse. Instead, we found a hotel restaurant. The food was serviceable, but nothing exceptional. I would not recommend going to this restaurant, although it is acceptable if staying at the hotel.

Okay spot for a business lunch. The butternut squash ravioli was excellent and the prices were comparable to a NYC lunch. You must get a door key from the host stand in order to use the bathroom.

The beer can chicken and the chicken and rice soup were outstanding. The tuna tower also very nice. Huge portions. The waiter, Thomas, was especially helpful in making recommendations. The food came out a bit slow but we were in no hurry. The tables surround a bar in the middle of the Westin hotel. Very nice adaptation of an old 1940s bank into a classy restaurant.

The setting is unique and attractive. We had a charming, experienced waiter who took the time to describe his favorite dishes. A big plus that he graciously agreed to my 85-year-old mom’s request to cut her enormous rib eye into manageable bites! However, he described my chicken entree as deboned, which was not true. My mom’s steak and my side dish of Brussels sprouts were way over cooked, and the dessert took a very long time to arrive. The music soundtrack was unpleasant. And when we arrived, it was not noted on this app so we were marked as no shows.

We tried to enjoy our very tasty dinner (beet salad, caesar salad, seafood linguini, ½ chicken) in a very nice booth ... sounds good ... until the wedding party of 80 showed up. People spilled over into the bar area, pushing and brushing up against our table, mostly presenting us with the view of their bottoms. We moved to a different booth. Our extraordinary (!!) waiter - Thomas White - moved us into one of the private dining rooms. That helped a lot. We enjoyed the architecture of this place, a former Bank, the history, the food, the size of the servings and especially our waiter. The very, very young Manager who talked to us for a moment has a lot to learn. Come with a big group to celebrate something and enjoy this restaurant. For a tete-a-tete dinner ... go somewhere else.

The food was really good, but the service was not. The person who seated us became our server, and it took her a very long time just to get back to us. We saw our drinks sitting on the bar for quite some time before they came to us. We were sitting close together, but all we could hear was the two people sitting at the bar‘s conversation. We also didn’t know that this was a hotel restaurant. It was never explained that it was a hotel lobby restaurant. We had a hard time finding it because we were looking for the name of the restaurant, and we should’ve been looking for the name of the hotel. We will not return ever.
