Cafe Lurcat is such a wonderful experience! It was such a treat, as always. I went on a Monday night (half price bottles of certain wines) during restaurant week (great food at an AMAZING price)! The food and drink are 5 star - service is excellent. Very attentive service that makes the whole experience!

We had an amazing Valentine's Day date at Cafe Lurcat. The food was so delicious and unique. My wife had the hanger steak and I had the Korean BBQ salmon. We did the Sunday date night deal and felt it was a great value. Service was phenomenal. Our server was attentive and helpful without being intrusive. We have already started recommending this place to our friends and family.

Service was really good! My party had a really good time there. Food was really tasty. It could be very pricy but on deal days, it worth every penny.

We really enjoyed the location of the restaurant. Food was phenomenal. Michael our server was very attentive and had great communication. He greeted us as we sat down but wanted to inform us he was in the middle of something and would be back in a few minutes to assist us. I appreciate the communication vs leaving us guessing if we were forgotten. We will certainly return again.

Very delicious food! We had the mushroom starter, which was awesome. For dinner we had the steak and one of the seafood forward pastas, both were very good. And three vegetable sides, all very good!

I was disappointed with the place for Valentine’s Day. It was a great experience several years ago with most tables for couples, single rose at table, great food on fixed menu. Food was ok but all or most were tables for 4. I asked door table by window as there were many open but given table on opposite wall. I made reservation months in advance. At best all was ok but not great. Considering $200 bill, it’s not worth it.

I had the steak...being a steak snob I did not know if would enjoy it. Well...it was perfect/delicious. My friend had a pasta salad . I thought it was great but she did not enjoy it...but loved my steak. We both enjoyed the doughnuts.

We had such a pleasant, warm and delightful evening at Lurcat. What a beautiful, comfortable place it is. The food was top notch, as good as I've had anywhere in town. The menu has a great amount of variety available without being overwhelming with an excess of choices. We really enjoy seafood, and so we ended up ordering mostly that for our meal. I'm not certain that Lurcat is particularly known as a spot for seafood, but our meal was on par with any we've had from the finest seafood establishments in the Twin Cities, or anywhere else. We had a delightful rosé from their extensive wine list, which was recommended by our waiter, Ken. The best part of our experience was the service. There isn't room here to list enough superlatives about the quality of service that Ken provided for us, as well as the other patrons near us. His timing, attentiveness, depth of knowledge and fun, positive attitude proved him to be one of the best restaurant servers we've ever encountered. Thanks Ken, and thanks Lurcat for a superb evening .

WHY DID I WAIT SO LONG TO DINE HERE!? That is all I have been asking myself since our amazin dinner Saturday night. Food was outstanding and service was delightful. I have already told 4 of our friends about it and that I am making them come with us for dinner again soon. Thanks for a perfect night.
