We had a perfect evening. Such a lovely restaurant and service is top notch. The food is amazing! Never disappoints. Can’t wait to go back!
Lovely meal. The service was outstanding and the food was fantastic. We decided on their date night menu and each course was carefully prepared with a delightful combination of flavors.
Although the food is excellent, my main disappointment is the increasing prices and smaller serving sizes over the past few years. Not sure that I will be returning.
Lurcat is always fantastic. This is an amazing restaurant that is perfect for a couple or a group of friends. Please visit Cafe Lurcat for a great evening.
Just nothing really special. Good, but definitely not anywhere near what one expects for the price.
Awesome food and location. Only thing I would change would be to add some sunshine but that is not on them. :)
We enjoyed Plymouth and Hendrick's Martini's at the Bar -- Lively and noisy (be aware of this if you plan to dine there); well-made drinks by Mike! The new menu is superb -- especially the range of appetizers; the crab cake, lobster galette and seared sea scallop appetizers were superbly prepared with a range of complementary flavors; we split a Braised Lamb & Masa gnocchi entree and Tarte au Citron dessert. Superb guidance and service by our server Revay. We had a table for two along the window in the main dining room, and although all tables were full and buzzing, we were able to enjoy our private conversation!
Great atmosphere and delicious food. I prefer the bar area over the dining room.
I’ve made a reservation for my husband’s birthday.
We had a great time, excellent food and service. Really enjoyed our first visit and look forward to our next one.
Lively spot by Basillica. Overlooks park and is close to downtown. Our college student requests this restaurant when we visit! Apple salad is unique and a must; caprese salad was tastey and wonderful to share. Salmon dish was a bit over cooked and salty so I’d suggest a different dish. Server was friendly and wine by the glass is abundant. Must try!
I've been a patron for I think 30+ years. It's always an exceptional evening. The staff is so friendly but never intrusive. The menu offers variety without suffering quality in preparation. For special events we always try to get a table at Lurcat
Our server was Ben and he was a delight. Volume level of the restaurant was enough to be energetic but low enough to have a conversation. We went for the Date Night special which is one of the best deals in Minneapolis.
Thank you for making my Mother’s Day special!!!💐 The potato gratin and the cinnamon streusel muffin, dreamy!!!!⭐️. I will be back on Saturday with my mom for my favorite Chilean sea bass🌸
The service is worth it all! Will for sure go back!
Excellent food with a great view. Really enjoyed our first visit and look forward to our next meal.
Extremely attentive service, we were greeted & taken care of wonderfully. Food was beautifully served & I highly recomendable for a special occasion!
Food and staff were fantastic
Apple cheese chive salad was unique and delicious . Sea Bass was excellent and waiters recommendation of the Braised Pot Roast was also delicious.
Went to Lurcat for Date Night and was a fantastic deal. The Sunday Date menu was perfect and getting the Barbaresco effectively for retail was a great way to finish the day
We went for date night and found it to be a great value.
Fabulous - everything was great
Octopus small plate was incredible! All of the food was unique and flavorful. This has become our new favorite treat.
Sunday night date night special is unbeatable. Wish they would change up the menu from time to time. Same menu for the past year. Still highly recommend.
Great Sunday night date night dinner special. We always enjoy the apps and entrees. Dessert was nothing special tonight. Overall, definitely worth the money.
New home purchase. The Sunday date night menu was a nice surprise
Gespacho: excellent taste and beautiful presentation
Oysters: wonderful, with exceptional sauces / dressings
Cheese plate: pretty good
Fries: pretty good
Ambiance: my favorite in town
The majority of the menu recently changed. I couldn’t find many of my favorites. I’ve been telling my friends this is my favorite place, and finally got us all to go together, but then there wasn’t much I could recommend since it was mostly new. My portion of the bill was $80, so I wasn’t thrilled about the value either this time. No one seemed amazed, and my friend who had the mozzarella salad didn’t finish because she couldn’t get over the slippery texture of the cheese. I believe I enjoyed what I selected more than they did.
Great atmosphere, great service, and amazing food. This was my first time going and the presentation was above what I expected.
Awesome experience. Will our waiter was AMAZING. The sea bass cooked to perfection. A new favorite
Had Easter lunch with my family and we had a great time. The food was amazing and so nice to be able to enjoy Easter without having to think about what to order. Our Server was very friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back.
Fabulous food, great service and the Easter bunny even showed up.... it was nice seeing all kinds of people, their families and friends all enjoying a beautiful Easter Day. And special credit to our server Shaya...for outstanding work....
A terrific, elegant tasty Easter brunch. The only thing missing was a vegan entree - the salad was vegan (likely) but having one vegan entree would have been a nice balance.
We have come to Easter Brunch here for years and I have to say this was disappointing. We love this restaurant and the food is almost always amazing. We didn't really have a server. The food was all served cold and not to their usual standard and we were rushed through the whole meal. We won't be going back any time soon.
Easter with Numny and crafts, family style all you can eat in courses.
My wife and I have been going to Easter Brunch there for years. The food is always great and the staff is fantastic.
Always great service and great food. We were there to celebrate my birthday. I got the sea bass and apple salad, which are always a staple and amazing every time. A friend had the risotto and I was able to try it. It was delicious!
We saw a mouse!
Super, once again! Best duck in my life. Thanks
Date night Sunday menu is fantastic!
First time here, very impressed with the attentiveness of the service and the quality of the food and wine. For $55 a couple, we had a great meal. I had crab cake, hanger steak and flourless chocolate cake, all extremely good. Partner had pear & walnut salad, a gigantic pork chop with fig reduction, and some dessert with meringue and cheesecake. All wonderfully special. Wine was half-off and we had a crémant that was crisp and dry. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Lurcat is the place to go when you want food that is perfectly prepared (not one item that’s just ok or worse, everything is perfect to the smallest detail) and you feel welcomed and taken care of by the excellent staff. Somehow it manages to please my family/friends who like a more traditional meal, and people like me who are serious cooks, and want to be a little surprised by new flavor combinations and can be a bit fussy.
