Great atmosphere, food and service. We dined here before a concert at Target center and will definitely be back!

I would recommend this place - especially if there was an event and you wanted a specific time for dining out- the restaurant was extremely busy due to a Twins game- the wait time was a bit longer than I would have liked for drinks and food, but with not much staff and it being super crowded- I understand and don't mind. I will go back.

Table had my name reserved sign when we arrived, and service was immediate, efficient, friendly. There were 35,000 in the downtown area for pre game dining and we were welcomed not rushed. Fantastic!

My reservation was 2 hours before the start of the Twins game. First, there were not enough servers for the number of customers, it took 10 minutes to flag one down to clear off my table, and the food was disappointing (cold Mac & cheese). In addition, they had an event menu which had limited options for 2 vegetarians in my party. I wanted to give a better review because I like the restaurant - but this experience was really bad.

Very handy location for Target Center and Target Field. Interesting menu. No full meals but lots of choices. Spotty service but ok since we allowed plenty of time.

I love the homemade chips! The music was very loud-difficult to converse. But overall, fun place-especially if you are a Badger fan

I made a reservation before a concert and I planned it out to have enough time to take my time. The food was great. The service was awesome and fast. As for the cocktails, they were very strong. Some folk may like that, but I don’t and I didn’t drink them.

The food was excellent! Zane was attentive and good-humored, as it was busy and he was accommodating when we changed a drink order last-minute. Fantastic experience!

We had reservations but couldn’t get anyones attention to honor them. After about 15 minutes the manager attended to us after several attempts only to find someone else had taken out assigned table. We agreed to eat outside in the beer garden so we could get served in time for the Twins game. Good thing we arrived early and decent weather. We all agreed the food was good.

Arrived for reservation at designated time. Due to a event going on at the Target Center, I knew it would be busy. However, I confirmed the reservation the evening prior and was told that two of the guests would receive a birthday treat. That, for one, did not happen. We were seated promptly in the lower level and waited for a server....and waited. Twenty minutes pass and we finally get a waitress who throws down three waters and spills one on one of my friends. It just got more chaotic from there. We didn't get our actual drink orders until forty minutes after our initial seating. I can't even time out when we ordered the food and when it finally arrived to our table. Overall, it was a poor experience....the place could have used additional staff, especially know the setting and busyness of downtown on a Friday night. One plus was the food was decent.

I had the Caprese Chicken Sandwich - it was dry and overcooked. The bottom bun was very soggy and I couldn't even eat it. One of my friends had the same thing - and she had the same complaints about hers. The tots were overly salted - I don't mind salty, however they don't need to be swimming in salt. One of the diners I was with had the cauliflower - she enjoyed it. I was quite disappointed considering it was a "Diner's Choice 2019" winner. I don't think I will go back.

Food was good and decent priced. Had a mix up on one of the sides (swapped fruit for fries). The drink service was pretty slow though.

The restaurant was very good and in a great location for our group before a concert at us bank stadium. The food and value were great, our waitress was ok, but I felt could have been a little more friendly. We love the fact they took reservations on nights of an event downtown, made our night out in the city much more enjoyable!

Had a great time at 508! The menu was broad enough to appeal to our varied tastes and everything was delicious. The service was fantastic and we were seated in a nice booth which and it was very easy for conversation. The beers on tap were great!

Value was not good. 3 grilled cheese and couple other entrees over $128. Not really impressed with salmon on the rice bowl. Dry.

Our service was horrible...We never actually received food because we ordered drinks and never received them. Another waiter approached us and we thought maybe we would be saved...but nope after waiting nearly 35 minutes we left. It was our first time trying it out so needless to say we were extremely disappointed. I did receive a follow up from the General Manager after my complaint and I am hoping I have an opportunity to write a different review if we have a different experience...time will tell.

Staff was very pleasant and served us well. Three of five in the party were very pleased with the food; and one person was disappointed in how hot the dish was even though she ordered it mild. Great location nice atmosphere, but itIt was so noisy even though not that packed on a Friday night that I don’t think will come back.

I wish restaurants would start creating an area for patrons that want to be able to carry on conversations and actually hear each other without shouting.

Great staff and service. Slightly more upscale vibe for a bar, but still accessible. They were gracious and welcoming hosts for the SuperBowl game watch party I attended. We stayed upstairs but the basement is a very cool space and would be great for events.

The food and drinks were great. However, please serve my beer in a real glass and not a flimsy disposable cup. Tacky.

Went there for dinner and drinks with my party of six.Sat at the table for 20 minutes before a server came over. Once the server came over took our drink order, but after 10 more minutes didn’t bring the drinks. I called him over and he responded “when I get the drink order from the bar I will bring them over.” At that point we got up and left as we had been there for 30 minutes. It was not even crowded and lots of empty tables so don’t understand the servers attitude.
