Great happy hour spot to go share a bunch of plates with friends... then stay for dinner and dessert!! The vegetarian flatbread and the donut holes with ice cream and caramel sauce were our favorites!
Server was not engaged seemed in a rush.
And it is way to loud.
We have tried it 5 times, may not return. To loud
Amazing food. I got the Greek salad with shrimp and a side of fries. Their Cabernet is one of the bests I’ve ever had.
Food was good. Green bean appetizer was very good, but really small. Entrees were inventive and tasty. Noise level was over the top. For that reason I will not return.
It was quite loud, but otherwise the atmosphere was very appealing. The menu looks pretty good, but the food itself was great. Every item was delicious and surpassed my expectations. I would certainly go back again to try the things that I missed this time around. Great job, Book Club!
Very approachable price points. Very eclectic menu Everyone (4) enjoyed their entrees.
Great service and good food!
Great neighborhood spot
The carrot cake was outstanding. Dense and yet incredibly moist. The rest of the meal was...meh, not terribly well seasoned. Our server was very kind. I appreciate that the restaurant offers health insurance to their staff. Happy to pay extra for it.
Great little neighborhood cafe!! Food and drinks are wonderful!
Cozy, inviting atmosphere. Love that they pay their staff a living wage with health benefits. Food was delicious!
Fun place with interesting decor and great mood lighting.
Excellent service and delicious food, and they had room for my late reservation. As a dessert lover, I was happy to discover they have good sized portions - enough to share, or not!
good food, although noise level high, resorted to reading lips
Nothing special.spend money elsewhere
Service was very good! Attentive without being at all smothering. We were very glad we came.
Interesting place and varied menu. Sound level very loud - hard to hear each other talking. Skip dessert - not great. Rice "bowl" was a very small plate with about 1/8 cup of rice. Food is good but not outstanding. Good little neighborhood place.
Great atmosphere with very interesting and eclectic menu choices.
Establishment was fairly busy but using Open Table at last second save us some waiting time. Service was prompt and friendly. Would visit again
Great kids meals and good service!
Great spot for happy hour, fabulous $5 apps and wine and beer choices. I will return.
This was our first time here and we were very pleased with the food and even though it was ver busy, the service was excellent. Tomato basil soup was one of the best I’ve tasted, the Crispy Cauliflower burrito and bread pudding were exceptional! Definitely will be back.
Absolutely so loud I could not hear my guest. Would only return if I could eat out-of—doors.
Michelle is the best GM of any restaurant I’ve ever been to!!!
Hubby and I booked a table for Restaurant Week for dinner. My husband had never been, but I had lunch with a friend the week before. Both experiences at Book Club were really great. Food was creative and fresh and the cocktail I had with dinner was excellent. The only drawback of the evening...the amount of very loud children and the screaming baby at the table next to us. We could hardly have a conversation! This is by no means is a mark against Book Club, but perhaps the parents of the loud children. In any event, we would definitely go back maybe at a very much later hour to avoid those issues.
Our food was very good - tarragon mayo hamburger and lemon herbal chicken. One person had the other hamburger with chili mayo, I believe. He ordered it withOUT the mayo, lettuce, tomato but it came with all.
Second time it came without mayo but still had lettuce and tomato. That’s easy to remove but it just gave us a chuckle.
Lovely interior. Wonderful and fresh menu. Fun for girls get together!
This was my first time dining at Book Club. Had heard a recommendation from a friend and so another friend and I decided to give it a go. Kim Bartman's group is pure magic when it comes to restaurants so how could we go wrong? Upon arriving, we were promptly greeted by a very friendly man sporting a handlebar mustache and seated quickly. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful. We both had the tomato soup which arrived fairly quickly. Absolutely delicious, creamy with good depth of flavor. My friend had the grilled flat bread which she said was totally amazing. I had the "allium" grilled cheese. The combination of cheddar cheese, leeks, green onion, sweet onion, and garlic was a flavor explosion (of the best kind!) and the bread was toasted perfectly! Sipping on our bubbly rose, we agreed we'd be back soon to explore more of the menu.
We visited for brunch. Nice place. Service not bad, but with a few mistakes. Food was delicious.
Really good food and great service. I ordered the cheddar bacon burger and it was one of the best burgers I've ever had in my life. The fries were amazing as well. Everything was perfectly seasoned and delightful. I'll definitely go back for another burger sometime soon!
Brunch menu is amazing. Grilled Cheese, Home made potato chips with green onion seasoning, French fries, Avocado toast with egg, tomatoes and green goddess dressing all Spectacular. Oh, and the eggs Benedict with pork belly, to die for.
Service is fantastic and Dana (as well as everyone else) couldn’t be more friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the menu. Love this restaurant.
Very warm/friendly service overall, good ambience but food was only average. Great fries but salads were just so so and grilled Chicken was plain, average and not much flavor. We ordered coffees after lunch and were not offered cream or sugar and didn’t see our server again until coffee was cold and too late to ask for additions
Brunch. Food was marginal; not hot. Good service.
An intimate neighborhood restaurant with good service and great food. Order anything -- you can't go wrong.
Great meal and experience!
Unbelievably good food and fabulous atmosphere! I recommend them to everybody!
Love this place! They have great deals on HH drinks and their turkey leg is absolutely amazing!
We enjoyed our dinner out with friends. There were a number of open tables when we got there so I was surprised the reservation times were as limited as they had been online. We all enjoyed our meals and appreciated they didn’t rush us through the meal, we were there quit a while. We would have liked to have had a better selection of shareable appetizers. Overall, we would go back.
Great place for lunch, the flatbread pizza and tomato soup were delicious!
An adorably decorated restaurant in the heart of south Minneapolis. The Happy Hour menu was to die for with $5 cocktails, wine and beer and a full list of $5 bites. The french fries with Tarragon aioli were divine and the lemon shrimp skewers were delicious. I came for happy hour with a friend and will definitely go back. Looking forward to trying a full dinner.
