Very disappointing ... food, service, and ambiance. Great building and location but that didn’t carry the experience.
We have come to celebrate most special occasions at the Inn because it is upscale dining in a very comfortable setting. I love that a small room can be used for small parties. Our guests were two college students who had never been to the NII before. Tres Leches french toast was divine and the mushroom gnocchi were excellent, too. Our server Joe was knowledgeable, congenial, and efficient. Thank you! And the bloody mary was so fine. See you again!
Met my clients for lunch. They aren't from here and they loved the experience. I meet in the private dining room twice a month, so I am very familiar with The Inn. LOVE your food! Love the look and feel of The Inn. Thanks for consistently delivering a great experience.
Went here for Valentine's Day dinner with my partner and had the prix fixe special menu with wine pairings. Everything was prepared perfectly, the portions were just right, and we felt pampered. Lovely service, lovely atmosphere. We've been here before and have always been happy with our experiences.
Always a pleasant place for a meal. Food is always well prepared, attractively served and hot when delivered. There is generally a wide assortment of options on the menu so most any taste will be satisfied. There are several relaxing views of the Mississippi River available to make this a welcoming venue.
Valentine's Day - and our anniversary - falls on a Wednesday this year so we decided to celebrate 2 days early with a leisurely Sunday brunch at Nicollet Island Inn. We both got the 5-course brunch and the selections were incredible (the smoked salmon Benedict was hands-down the best Benedict we've ever eaten!). We loved having the time to sit and enjoy the beautiful view, each other's company, and the food without being rushed. Seriously, there are so few places that make you feel like a valued patron and respect the luxury of a paced meal. Thank you so much for another great meal - as always, we'll be back!
This is a mainstay spot of ours. Quiet, romantic, great views.
The food is very good although not a very creative menu.
This visit we had the filet and lobster. The filet was excellent, the lobster so-so.
The lamb shank was great.
We had brussel sprouts as an appetizer, although tasty, they were somewhat boring being just sauteed in butter.
Still one of my favorite romantic spots!
A favorite place with family and friends. Excellent food, superb service, lovely ambience.
Very special environment for an intimate dinner.
Always treated like royalty when a restaurant guest at the Inn. Food is always fabulous and the staff kind and attentive!
I was a little disappointed in the freshness/quality of the food and beverages selection. The coffee was weak, for my taste and there was no option for specialty coffees. Also, a couple of the pastries were dry as well as my dessert choice.
We did the lobster fest .
Would not recommend it.First course was good but not even the tip of my finger of salmon,
Second course was scallops and cod with a sauce that you couldn't tell the difference which was which since it was in a dumpling form.
The sorbet was good.
The lobster was cut in half and that was what you got. The biggest part of it was a dressing of some sort and no chunks of lobster in it. The tail part was 3 bites but tasty.
Might try going there again and see what their menu food is like.
The waitress and waiter staff was awesome.
Love the atmosphere !
we went to nicollet inn for lobster week, and the meal was creative and very tasty. service was spot-on. was a great date/dining experience.
Lobsterfest was outstanding, especially the Lobster Thermidor.
