Joan and staff make it a very personable experience. It has a very neighborly feel, that you are part of the area no matter where you came from. It's a gem.

The food is delicious! Service is on point, she even used a crumber to our table. It is a very small restaurant, cozy. Definitely recommend making reservations.

Enjoyed a really tasty meal with great cocktails to start and a lovely warm atmosphere for conversation. The chef, owner, and chef's daughter (our waitress) all made us feel especially well taken care of. The food was exquisite. We'll definitely be back.

Always impeccable. Took my steak loving friend who has sampled most high end steakhouses in the area and he said it was one of the best steaks he's ever had (8 oz. filet, with mushrooms and a reduction sauce, a perfect medium rare).

Their cocktail menu is mostly classics. Perfectly executed, consistent versions of your favorite drink.

Service is always good. Gracious, well informed, and present but not overbearing.

The dining and bar space are small and intimate. Reservations a must. Limited bar seating is luck of the draw. Older well heeled crowd, with lots of regulars.

This is a top 5 restaurant in the Twin Cities. No doubt.

I sat by a window and was a bit cold but I would do this over and over again. Food was so good! I will return as we loved it !

We dined early which was a good thing as the noise level escalated as the evening progressed! Our waiter Dan was very accommodating as one of guests had some gluten free restrictions. Overall it was a pleasant experience!

This was a referral from a friend and it definitely lived up to our expectations. I let them know that we had 2 birthdays in our party. They started with sparkles on the table. Appetizers, main dish, dessert and wine and after dinner drinks were amazing. Our server was over-the-top with service; he even took our photo and handed each of us an actual printed photo to remember this special evening. 5 Stars
