Cafe Lurcat - Minneapolis Ratings and Reviews
We stopped by for a light meal before the Arrow Awards at the Walker. Our waiter was helpful in getting our food and drinks in a timely manner. The ambience was lively and fun. The food was delicious and, as we were there during happy hour, was a great value for the money.
Cafe Lurcat is a nice place but way too expensive. We were sitting next to the window and it felt cold. Our waiter was somewhat chaotic. The sea bass alone was $40. I find that a ridiculous amount. Overall for two people and not even a bottle of wine we spent over $160. These are high prices also for California or NYC, I would not recommend it.
Food was AMAZING. I ordered the lamb shank, which was a very out-there pick for my reserved palate, but it was delicious!! Pricey ($42 for just the meal), but so good. Cocktails were very well mixed.
Unfortunately, service was lack-luster. We had an hour and half for dinner and still had to flag someone to get our bill AND I didn’t get to take my leftovers since I couldn’t find my server to get me a box. Came back after our concert for another round and service at the bar was equally inattentive and disappointing. It was very busy, so I will still give them another chance some other time!
I love going to this place. Good vibe. Next time i would eat on the bar side. Funkier and i think a better value. Food in the restaurant low on value and impact. Tuna tarta was almost flavorless. No boom.
But we had a good time. Our server was Awesome! Thanks Ashley!
This place is was wonderful. My girlfriend and I loved the decor, ambience, service, and food! All of the staff we interacted with were so fun to talk to and were very attentive in a genuine way. Our waitress was so knowledgeable of the menu, it was amazing!
This was the second birthday we celebrated at Cafe Lurcat. Everything was wonderful, like the last time, except for the steaks. Three of us ordered steaks and they were all overcooked. Our server agreed with us and sent someone else over to the table. As compensation, they provided us with three free desserts. The desserts were very good, but I feel like we should have been comped fora at least one of the three steaks. Mine was so well done, I did not even finish it. For the price we pay, I expect a little more "customer service." Our server was awesome!
My husband and I were coming from NW Suburbs looking for somewhere new. We are self proclaimed foodies that follow a paleo lifestyle and Café Lurcat was exactly the menu we were looking for. From the Oyseters to the AMAZING Sea Bass all the way to our dessert. We received top notch service with top notch meals. We will be back again with friends!
Wonderful experience. We were in a side room which was very quiet, peaceful, and had a good view. Outstanding service and delicious over the top comfort food-pot roast with lots of puréed potatoes and gravy. Birthday guests were eat given tiny donuts to die for and share with the table. Couldn’t have been better! Highly recommend.
Great service. Neat building and restaurant space. Beef tenderloin was excellent. Scallops were good. Carrot side was good. Crab cake was good. Mini donuts were better than the fair, less grease. Drinks were decent. We will go back. Downside was that if you go see a show or event downtown you really have to drive here. Parking was easy around the corner at the $6 lot though.
Disappointing. Over the last 10 years I have eaten at Lurcat I have been satisfied.
This last meal was not. The sea bass still tasted good, but for $40 it is no longer a good value.
The Sauvignon Blanc was decent, but not At $55. It was also not chilled and need to be put on ice delaying the enjoyment. The rest of the dishes we OK.
Two of my guest ordered a salad and apertiser. The bill for 3 with tip was over $200.
Cafe Lurcat is a beautiful restaurant. Very comfortable with a view of Loring Park.
This was a Monday night and the restaurant was not busy so why the service was slow?
I do not plan on returning until I hear things have improved.
I made a dinner reservation for four to celebrate my husband's birthday. The hostess sat us in the bar and told me that because I made the reservation online and didn't specify that we wanted to be seated in the cafe/restaurant, they could seat us anywhere there was an open table. There were no tables available in the cafe, only the bar. My husband and I were both disappointed.
Good food and even better service!!! We were there to celebrate our 14th anniversary. After we finished our dinner, we left but forgot our camera bag for about a week!?!?! Amazingly, someone found it and left it with the Manager until we remembered what happened to it!? We would to thank the staff, managers, cooks, and great customers who found our missing camera that had all off anniversary pictures. Date Night at Cafe Lurcat never disappoints!! Thank you Cafe Lurcat for being awesome!
Hadn't been to Cafe Lurcat in a long time--so good to be back. Great service. Loved sitting by the windows, watching the weather. Started with the apple, cheese, chives salad which was delicious--great combination. Hangar steak was outstanding as were the scallops. Also had cauliflower which we really enjoyed. Delightful dining experience-we won't wait so long to go back!
