Great service! The pork belly bar bites melt in your mouth. BBQ Ribs are some of the best I’ve had in the Twin Cities and the chilly is full of flavor, rich in meat chunks

Horrible service. We were not even given menus when we sat down. We had to ask for them. The service awful. We were out of drinks the entire time.

The majority of the tables were open and there had to have been 5 waiters/ waitresses. Service was so slow I never got offered a second beer and I asked 3 employees for a check because no one was coming to our table. When our actual waiter finally came he was rude. The food was fine, nothing outstanding, and reasonably priced. They do have a very good beer menu which I appreciated.

After making an Open Table reservation before a show we arrived before our reservation time. The hostess said that there would be a wait...So much for the reservation. Then when seats opened in the bar we asked if we could sit in the bar. After being told we could and sat in the bar and reminded the staff that we had the Open Table reservation and got a yeah OK that is no problem. Sever took our order never to be seen again until we got up and he must have thought we were dining and dashing because then came running with ticket in hand. Por service average at best food. Won't be back.

Reservation not found in their system. They were able to quickly accommodate us. But 3 of us got sick 30 minutes after finishing fish tacos. 🤢

We ate here yesterday after attending The Food and Wine Experience. The food was delicious, I highly recommend the cheese curds! So many beer choices! We were seated right away, our drinks were quickly refilled, and the food was really good! Overall, great experience!

Our food was great - my dairy free substitution was accommodated since they weren't very busy so my fish tacos were amazing!!! Our server was terrific.
The hostess forgot to check us in under out Open Table reservations - so I got dinged by Open Table, but City Works was wonderful!

Service and food were both very good. We were attending a concert at the Target center after. So it was a great place to go and be able to use skyway to stay out of cold. Would definitely go back!!

This was my first visit to City Works and I was very impressed by the food and service, the prices were in line with other like restaurants. My daughter and I went for lunch before a matinee at the State Theatre on Saturday. It was quiet when we arrived but started picking up as time went on. Large TV’s to watch college football, but not overwhelming noise at all, I will be back, especially for the food!!

Initially it was VERY loud with sports on the televisions everywhere but did quiet down to a nice music after a bit. Definitely more of a Sports Bar vibe than what I was looking for though - still good and lots of beer choices!

This was our first time going to City Works and we were definitely pleased! Made a reservation just in case since it was a Friday night, but there was plenty of open spots the evening we went prior to hitting up a comedy show downtown. Very energetic, fun atmosphere! The food was good and the service was top notch as well! Great place to hit up prior to or after a show/game downtown Minneapolis!

This was an okay restaurant. We had a reservation and asked to be seated in one of the 6 booths that were open and were not allowed because we didn't ask specifically in our reservation. Most of the booths remained open the entire time we were there. The food was ok. Burger was dry. The fries were decent (I ate them all). I had a cocktail and it was weak. So many other good choices to eat downtown, I think I'll pass City Works by next time.

The food was fine but I felt as though we had at least five different servers. It was a busy night and we mostly wanted a place to watch college football. Completely serviceable with a nice beer selection.

Decent place that feels a bit too Applebee’s at times. The refined menu is good for just about anyone - nothing too daring. The beer list is insane, and the happy hour is a great deal.

We had reservations for dinner but was sat in the bar area. The service was horrible. We had to ask our server 3 times for silverware and she was missing for at least half of the meal. When she finally came back to the table she seemed annoyed that we were asking for a refill or for another drink.

If you go to City Works on a weekend, prepare for a VERY loud dining experience. We went on a Friday night during college football, and we had to shout at each other during conversation. For an upscale sports bar, there were a lot of obnoxious, drunk grown ups. The food is excellent. Go on a week night.

The decor is sportsbar with dozens of great beer choices on tap. The awesome surprise is the innovative food options. You can get good standard offerings but try the mac-n-cheese. You won't be disappointed

Not prepared for a busy Saturday night downtown! Took at least 10 minutes to get a drink after ordering and our food took 45 minutes (mind you our order was apps, soup/salad, and a wrap). The staff seemed a bit flustered and unorganized. Drinks were good but not necessarily worth the wait or price.

Disappointed in them advertising shark week specials and it being on tv. Made a special occasion of shark week fans looking for something cool and finding out they had it on one lower tv in the corner and no offering by the waitstaff of the advertised shark week drink combos. Very disappointed.

We went here because it was my 22 year old sons' birthday and he said this was his "new" favorite place. I had the farm raised Salmon, the presentation was very appealing, taste was mouth-watering. He had the Duck Rueben and loved it. (he said the Duck Nachos were "the bomb" but we didn't get them as I don't care for Duck) I was very pleased with the experience, I will definitely be back!
