Service was impeccable! The food was very tasty & well prepared. We both thought our pasta (made in house) could use more salt, but it didn’t ruin the dish. I’d rather be able to add salt than a dish be too salty. Well made cocktails. There is an amazing wine list from extremely affordable to adventurous & rare. I haven’t seen this many places, ever, let alone in the Twin Cities. Expansive menu. Quite literally something for everyone one! Did I tell you about the impeccable service‽ We will definitely be back! More

Slow start. Drinks took 15 minutes- understaffed outdoors? Very friendly and nice but ... ended up comping half a drink! Octopus was great, tender. Pork belly equally tender and tasty.

We were visiting Minneapolis and wanted to walk to a restaurant near our hotel for a light dinner. We split the sausage and cheese board and a salad with a couple of excellent beers. We enjoyed the sausages and cheese, it was just what we wanted. As we were leaving, the restaurant was getting set up for music, so while it was pretty empty when we ate about 7:30, it was probably going to get much busier. More

This was our first time at this restaurant. The food was overall very good. I had the halibut which was delicious my husband had the steak and shrimp which was very good as well. My husband also had the lobster mashed which he said were delicious, I also had lobster bisque which was really good. As an appetizer we had the oysters Rockefeller which was good but a bit tart and a bit runny but were good. My husband had crème brûlée, I have had many of these and this was probably the only disappointment of the meal, the vanilla fell to the bottom of the desert, and the crust was barely seared so it didn’t crack. The atmosphere was nice but a little had to hear. Our waitress was kind but a bit slow. We would come back. More

Great dinner for our group of 3 adults and 3 kids. We were seated in the board room with plenty of space and curtains so it felt like our own restaurant. Food was decent, but the service was excellent! Cocktails were disappointing. Pork chop was a bit bland. Edamame toasts were great. Popovers with honey butter were a hit. Kids meals were average. Wild rice soup was pretty good, but not as good as Mercy. More

The food was delicious......great improvements from the old Basils menu. Our server Doreen provided polite, quick, and genuine service. They even had a wonderful Jazz band, that was such a pleasant surprise. The manager Matilda came over to check on how things were going and gave us a brief history of the recent transformations. From the time we walked in, to the time we left, we were greeted & treated w/awesome service. I am definitely recommending the Jolliet House to family & friends Thank you for a great experience !

My boyfriend and I went for his 29th birthday, and the restaurant was completely dead. No one was at the host stand, just 3-4 people were sitting at the bar. I finally walked around and the bartender stopped me, and I said I had a reservation. Thankfully there was one other table of 6 girls on a bachelorette party so we weren't the only ones, but the ambiance wasn't what I was expecting. Thankfully, the delectable food and impeccable service made up for the lacking milieu. We also got to try two appetizers that weren't on the menu for free! Despite the odd beginning, we truly enjoyed our time, got to talk to the chef, had delicious drinks, and will be back. They apparently have some mushroom dinner that you purchase tickets for, and I'd love to go to that. More

One of the items we tried was the coffee spice rubbed chicken wings. Highly recommended! Crispy and just enough spice. We also tried the walleye. It is served with sun chokes...something I had never heard of or tried before. Not a fan, but others might like them. The chocolate dessert is heavenly and could easily be shared...very decadent. We also enjoyed the breakfast buffet the next morning. Wonderful food and many choices. It is elegantly laid out and easy to access. We can highly recommend the omelets.

Delicious sushi. I haven't had good sushi in years; Sushi Tango reminded me what I've been missing. We ordered from the lower price side of the sushi menu. With two bowls of miso soup, an appetizer of roasted baby bok choy, three maki, and three orders of nigiri, we spent $51 plus a tip. The yellowtail nigiri was the star of the meal. I might order it sashimi style next time. Today was my companion's birthday, so the restaurant gave them a fried ice cream with a very exciting candle. My only complaint was that the music was a little too loud, given that we wanted to talk during dinner. Overall, an enjoyable birthday dinner. More

This is our second visit. We live in AZ and treated ourselves to a nice evening out. Waiter was superb and we like the ambiance. I also enjoyed the background music- nice playlist. Food was above average. More

Discover North Loop of Minneapolis

Also known as the traditional warehouse district, Minneapolis' North Loop is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In between getting bites to eat, feel free to explore the three museums within the bounds of the loop, including one that features cuckoo clocks. As with many neighborhoods in Minnesota, you can find delectable Northern European delights mixed together with more well-known continental eats as well as Mexican and Asian fare. There are several places where you can find excellent, dim sum-style light lunches. You can also enjoy new American cuisine at more than half a dozen places sprinkled throughout the loop. If the mood strikes you, make the mile-and-a-half trip to Nicollet Mall and, hat in hand, channel your inner Mary Richards!
