We were seated immediately, but were there for 2 hours bc it took an hour for our food to arrive with no apologies. Our waitress never asked if we wanted another drink or more water although our cocktails were gone. She also never offered us dessert. We were basically ignored once we ordered our food bc she never came by again. I feel like we’d still be sitting there if we hadn’t requested the check. Very disappointing when they include a 22% tip onto your bill. The food was very good and the ambience is always lovely there. Just had a bad experience this time.
Our evening at Cafe Lurcat was magnificent! The ambiance of the courtyard has a European feel and so peaceful. Our server, Michael was very conscientious of making our experience a pleasant one. The food is outstanding! No wonder we love this place.
Very good food, atmosphere.
Started with the cheese plate and runs tartar. Then moved to the Apple cheese and chive salad. Entrees were the sirloin and the cod. Everything was perfection and decadent.
One of my top 5 patios in Minneapolis!
Love this place - amazing food and service as always. It's a go to for me
Lovely courtyard and distanced tables. A reasonable selection of menu items. Great service - friendly and professional. Glad they’re open again!!
Cafe Lurcat remains one of our favorite spots for dinner. We did wait for 1 1/2 hours for our food, but it didn’t disappoint and we had a great evening.
Excellent food and wonderful service from our Server Cole.
Perfect...slow to clear empties. Only complaint.
Cafe Lurcat never disappoints! We always ask for Ken to be our server - he is fabulous and is attentive without being intrusive. The food was better than we remembered it (pre-Covid, when restaurants had to close temporarily.) We had Octopus Tonnato for an appetizer, along with the Apple, Cheese, Chive Salad. For entrees, we had the Filet Mignon and Miso Black Cod. Everything was delicious and we had a great evening.
This was the perfect place for a special night out for a romantic anniversary dinner. The service was very good, ambiance and music was perfect, food was all very delicious and they make a fantastic Old Fashioned.
Beautiful, elegant restaurant overlooking Loring Park. Great food, first class service. A little pricey (large steak $70) average entrée $45 and they now include a 22% fee on all checks to help give there servers a living wage. You are invited to add more for good service. We had excellent service, but I'm never a fan of mandatory service fees.
Drinks were top notch, yum!
Great experience as always. Amazing food and fantastic service.
As always, Cafe Lurcat provided an excellent dining experience - ambience (one of best patios!), service and of course, the food. It's a bit pricey but worth it.
Our waiter Ben made our experience fun and light in spite of there being a pandemic. The food was superb as was the service. Definitely recommend the octopus tonnato, tuna tartare and labneh custard for dessert. We had a truly memorable date night.
Great live music (piano & bass jazz duo), beautiful surroundings, the food was incredible too.
Dining was a pleasure! There was live background music, the service was great and the food was fabulous!
Wonderful dining with exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable staff! Romantic atmosphere with plenty of space.
Love this restaurant and have been going for 15 years! They have added a 22% service charge which I have no problem with as the service is always exceptional but I wish they would disclose it. It feels like they are trying to hide it by not telling you and the time before this one I tipped on top of it because I did not notice and therefore ended up leaving a gratuity over 40%!
Place is phenomenal. Food was great "I ordered the Korean BBQ Salmon" and the desert was a 10/10. Also let me not forget the cocktail, The Old Fashion was just perfect.
Amazingly delicious food, great drinks, and excellent service!
We go to Cafe Lurcat every single year for my birthday and order the Labneh. It never disappoints! This time we did a couple small plates and fell in love with a few new dishes. This is also my go-to spot when we have guests in town! 10/10 would recommend!
Long wait time for food but very good otherwise!
Outdoor dining inside the brick buildings ambience was outstanding. Food was delicious. A special occasion for us, it was worth the upcharge due to covif factors.
Great food and an overall pleasant experience! Definitely a fun place to go for a nice, quiet dinner for two!
First time to Cafe Lurcat but it will not be the last. We went there for my birthday. I had the burrata salad and roasted cauliflower and Miso Prepared Cod. They were all winners! The service was impeccable and the atmosphere quiet and social distancing was practiced, which made it a comfortable space to have dinner in.
Sat in a beautiful outside space, felt like an alley in europe with lovely lighting and flowers. Food was phenomenal. The apple chevre salad is always a fave!
wonderful meal as always, great patio, followed COVID rules well and felt comfortable, love the cod, fries, burgers, doughnuts, and everything
Spectacular family dinner at outdoor courtyard! Delicious cuisine & fantastic staff!!
Great food, great service! This was our first experience but it won’t be our last. Highly recommended!
We felt very well taken care of and felt safe. That is the first priority these days. On top of the great service the food was amazingly good. Thanks to everyone
Excellent - Always is. we had been waiting the re-opening and the patio as well as the spacing of the tables inside was great.
Be aware of the 22% surcharge that is added. Other than that, the food is excellent. The staff is great. Loved the experience and view.
They add 22% Service charge which is high. I understand restaurants are struggling but so is the rest if America.
Cafe Lurcat has been a longtime favorite dining destination for my husband and me for over 10 years. We were thrilled when the restaurant reopened. As always, the food was outstanding! Although I was disappointed the sea bass was no longer on the menu, the blackened cod was fabulous (just as good, if not better)! Leeah, our server, was absolutely amazing. She provided great recommendations. She was extremely knowledgeable, polite and timely with her service. I highly recommend Cafe Lurcat. Thank you!
Despite reservation, we were at a dark and dingy table on mezzanine. Nice servers but infrequent appearances. Red wine selection had only a few unrecognized vineyards below $70 per bottle. Food was good. We were surprised to find that Lurcat now adds a mandatory 22% service fee to which additional optional tip can be added. Not well disclosed up front.
Amazing food and ambiance! Great pick for a very special night out!
So awesome to be back, food and service was phenomenal. Great summer evening.
best place in the cities for dessert! labnah is my all time favorite
