Our server was a little distracted and forgot one of our drink orders. Also asked on three different visits to the table if we been there before which we replied that we had been there before. Steaks are incredible there though.

Service, great food and positive experience are exactly what you’d hope for (and expect) at an expensive restaurant and Murray’s delivered on all three. Beautiful (stunning) custom Christmas decorations added to the charm.

First started going here in 1972, and won't stop going until I'm under the daisy's. Yes it costs a good amount, but it's worth it. Go ahead, treat yourself.

We hadn't been to Murray's in a few years. So - beginning with curbside valet service, and walking into beautiful décor, excellent seafood and NY strips with a top cabernet we followed it all by splitting a chocolate desert. It was a great night!
And Dennis, is our new best waiter ever. He and Murray’s come highly recommended !!

I had dinner with my wife and her parents. I loved my Porterhouse! Well seasoned, nice portion, and high end customer service. I would recommend this place for any fine dining lover. This marked my wife and I 8th wedding anniversary and We enjoyed every single minute celebrating at Murray’s. We will certainly be back!!

Murray' never disappoints. All the times we have been there (since 1983) have provided a first-rate experience. And since the remodel, it is fun to see people of all ages; people both young and old enjoying what has always been for us such an enjoyable time. We are looking forward to our next visit.

My only complaint is the food came out too fast, like we were being rushed. For the price, service should have been paced or, at the very least, the server could have inquired about our timelines. Everything else was great,

I wanted to impress a friend who was visiting from Chicago, where the steak houses are numerous and fabulous. Where better than Murray's to achieve the goal. We shared the signature Butter Knife Steak with au gratin potatoes and salad. I had the beet salad and it was very tasty and full of beets and greens. The steak was delicious and done perfectly and we had a wonderful Cabernet to accent the flavors. Our only problem was that we had eaten so many of the garlic toasts - yum! - that we could not finish our steak. The good news for me is that it is in my refrigerator and I look forward to another delicious taste this week.

It’s been a while since we had eaten at Murray’s but we HAD to travel the 200 miles for our Anniversary. After all, we were there on our honeymoon, 1st, 10th, 20th, 25th, and several other aniverseries.

Neither distance nor disability were going to stop us from sharing the Silver Butterknife on our 40th Wedding Anniversary!

The ENTIRE experience was wonderful!!!!

We have always loved Murray's. This time, not so much. Luncheon steak really tough. Didn't send it back due to lunch gathering. Waitress was lacklustre, pretty much slammed food on the table. Support staff much better. Garlic toast wonderful.

Murray's still is simply the finest dining experience in downtown Minneapolis. The food, service, and ambiance has always been exceptional. So many years on 6th street in Minneapolis, it is truly an icon and landmark of the downtown Minneapolis dining scene.

We were so impressed by the service and attention to detail throughout the meal. It was a memorable dining experience that was personalized to our requests. This was primarily due to our waiter Ricardo who is a true professional and the tradition of fine dining at Murray’s. We were treated like family there and would highly recommend it to others. It is worth every penny for those great steaks and friendly staff/owners.

Murray's is an excellent choice when in Minneapolis they have excellent food and a good atmosphere. The history behind the name and restaurant and the fact that it is still in the Murray family and not a cookie cutter chain speaks volumes!!

Went to Minneapolis with a colleague for a seminar and had a terrific meal at Murray's. The waiter was friendly and knowledgeable, available without being invasive and overly obvious. The bartender mixed a nice Manhattan. Not all do. For entrees, we both had filets, done precisely as ordered, and extraordinary. Murray's still has it, and won't disappoint.

Kind of disappointing. I had the Original Steak sandwich and the steak was cut too thick. It was hard to eat and I really wouldn't ever order it again. Also not the most tender so when you bite in the whole big chunk just pulls right out of the sandwich. The toasted "sourdough" was not particularly good quality.
I know they can do better so I would go back, but this was not impressive.
