Three of us had the Thanksgiving buffet. It had everything anyone would want and lots of it. The carving station had prime rib, turkey, and ham. Lovely salad bar with shrimp. Brie was our server and she was fantastic. We all ordered a drink from the fancy drink menu which we rarely do, but it was Thanksgiving so what the heck. We've been to the TG buffet before, a few years ago. Normally we're a cook at home kind of family, but we were flung far and wide this year and so we went out to dinner to the same place we went in 2016 having just flown in from Europe with no time to cook. Didn't even look at another brunch. Lela is where we wanted to go. More

We are fans of Cantina Laredo and chose to visit for my husband's birthday. Our waitress seemed attentive to her other tables, just not to ours. No offers for refills on drinks, even when the glass was set at the edge of the table (which usually signals a server). The guacamole is always amazing, my husband thought it was a little bland but since he chose how many jalapenos, nothing to say there. We will be back despite the service this time. More

Girlfriend and I went for date night. There's a little something for anybody on the menu. We started with the Loaded Nachos. These might be the best nachos I've ever had. Crispy multicolor chips, tender smoky pulled pork, queso and shredded cheese. Then these HUGE portions of guacamole and sour cream. Everything was fresh and tasty. To be honest, we kind of regretting ordering entrees with this coming. I had the Asian Shrimp Salad. The shrimp were good, very well seasoned, but seemed like a small portion when compared to the salad, which was served warm over noodles. Good flavor, but the noodles seemed out of place. She had the lamb burger. The pita was super soft and the lamb had an amazing spice blend on it. We will be back. More

I travel to MSP yearly to begin seasonal shopping and stay at Radisson Blu and eat at FireLake on Saturday. Each year the waitstaff have been excellent, fun and personable. We occasionally have had the same server as the year before. The food is good. The lamb, prime rib and bison are all cooked to perfection and the sides are varied and delicious. My wine list is excellent and my reds are usually decanted. More

Made reservation on OpenTable; hostess had no idea that we had a reservation. Male manager or assistant manager (tall, slender....dressed in a black shirt and khaki pants) did acknowledge us or speak to us when we walked in....he appeared annoyed that we were we there and by the fact that he had to set up the table for my party.

Holy cow! 4 of us for Thanksgiving dinner. GREAT service, food was good. It was cozy and friendly and quiet - I could hear well. We actually had conversation! Honestly it was so great I’ve been telling everybody that this is the way I’m doing holiday dinners from now on. I just can’t say enough about it. Highly recommended. Dale Cook.

I am so glad we didn't use the restrooms before dinner. I don't think we would have stayed. The Food was delicious, and the chef was entertaining. My friends and family all had a really great time!! When dinner was over we stopped in the restrooms before heading home, and it was disgusting! The toilets had water all around them, the floors were totally sticky, and I don't think the bathrooms had been cleaned in quite some time. We couldn't wait to get out of there. Unfortunately I don't think we will be back for that reason alone. More

My wife and I try a new restaurant every week. This was by far the biggest win that we have since starting this weekly tradition. Food was exceptional, very beautifully presented and an amazing value. I highly recommend this place. Parking is a little dicey, since it is located in a large hotel. More

Discover Bloomington

Home to the longest continuous indoor pedestrian walkway in the world, the Minneapolis-St. Paul area is a seven-county region in east central Minnesota. You can't visit the Twin Cities without checking out the many parks or 10,000-plus lakes peppered throughout the area. If you work up an appetite from all that outdoor adventure, make your way to the Bloomington neighborhood near the Mall of America. A classic steak dinner is a local favorite, as are topping-filled gyros and pitas and fresh-caught walleye. It's not hard to find restaurants or cafes on Minnesota Drive serving up an iconic Juicy Lucy with cheese on the inside of the burger. You can also try a Norwegian tortilla called a lefse, butter coffee, or flavor-rich "bars" that are a step up from traditional brownies.
