good service and good food in a classy environment. Great place to enjoy the company of friends and family.
It was classy and nice, but not much options for a Vegetarian on the menu.
Went for dinner then breakfast next day, place was great , good service outstanding food for value
This was a good choice for my wife's birthday dinner. It was not too noisy and the service was attentive, but not overly so.
Fantastic freshness and quality.TC diners should appreciate the novel flavors here. Thanks for being open, and so consistent in your warm welcome and high standards.
Service and food were excellent! Unfortunately no fire Wednesday evening a bit of a disappointment...We had crab cake appetizer steak and shrimp entrees both were excellent. Complimentary cheesecake for my birthday! Wine selection was great also.
Was a very good night with family. Excellent food and service!
It was our 37th wedding anniversary.
Met friends for lunch
Our group of six had a fabulous brunch! The menu had something appealing for everyone,—standard breakfast items and then choices with a unique twist. We’ll definitely be back.
Such a cute place! The food was DELICIOUS and the service was outstanding!
As always ..... 5 stars for everything.
Laura, Tony and all of the great people at the Downtowner.
We look forward to our every Sunday morning, and our favorite Cajun breakfast.
We had breakfast in the parking lot where a corner had been transformed into a patio. Perfect solution.
Love the Downtowner, great food & service! Staff always very friendly and location is easy to get to.
We’ve been to the Downtowner many times and will keep coming back. We especially love the ambience; a quiet, relaxing atmosphere is what we enjoy. The food is delicious and the potions are perfect. Service is always impeccable and welcoming. It’s definitely on our list of favorite places. Thank you so much for a lovely, comfortable evening.

This is easily one of my favorite restaurants. The atmosphere is nice, the staff are friendly, and the food is amazing!
Social distancing measures were good. Service was good. The food was overpriced for it’s mediocrity. I had a $35.00 filet that was tender and cooked perfectly but literally had no flavor. My husbands lamb was good not great.
Food was delicious! Loved that they had smalled brunch options too
The entire menu is good. The calamari appetizer is the best around.
The servers were fantastic and the food came up so fast!!! Delicious! They are doing a great job with Covid!
Not prepared to serve vegans (and we phoned ahead). Food wasn’t good - vegan nor regular. Hummus was runny like milk. Service was ok. Wouldn’t return.
Lisa was great, she is a wonderful server. She’s very passionate about what she does, and it shows in her work. So glad we got the chance to have her serve us 🙂
Great all around
Seated promptly with tables and booths appropriately separated. Well crafted cocktails served within minutes.
Wife and I split a large spinach salad served well chilled with crisp greens.
Linguine with clams served piping hot. Great flavors with numerous clams. Halibut Special was just as wonderful as I remembered from previous experiences. Flavorful, crisp skin with mild, well prepared generous size portion of halibut.
Staff pleasant and attentive.
Prices were far below what one would pay for a similar meal elsewhere in Minneapolis-St. Paul.
Return reservations already made.
Very Nice place and meal and staff were great.
Relaxing, enjoyable and delicious!
From the beginning when Mo greeted us through the waitress being patient and the ambience great for a work breakfast, it was excellent.
We were forgotten by the waitress. It was disappointing. We kept asking for refills and had to chase her to order our food.
I asked her if they were busy, “She said not really”..
My favorite restaurant, this time the service was not there.
The Downtowner now has patio seating out front surrounded by flower beds. I love this place- the food is always exceptional (I had the salmon) and it was nice to do some people watching while enjoying the outdoors.
We love this restaurant. Great flavors, great ambiance and great service. We would recommend Woodfire Grill to everyone.
The food and drinks is excellent
The food and service was amazing as always! The seafood and vegetable appetizer was amazing! If you go you must try!
Food and service were very good. Very happy to dine in and they did a very good job of sanitizing and distancing. Have a dedicated parking lot so no problem seeking parking.
I love eating and Downtowner. The food is great and the service is awesome. You always get what you expect when you order your meal. My friends and I had a great meal and a nice visit.
Fabulous menu. Attentive staff. A must lunch stop.
I took my wife here for her birthday dinner. We really enjoyed the ambience and the food was superb & perfectly priced for the quality. She was surprised with an absolutely deliciously rich dessert at no extra charge. I'm glad she shared with me 😊 We will be back I'm in love with the salmon salad I need more!
Always love making a visit - never, ever, ever been disappointed in the food or service. Downtowner is TOP NOTCH!
Moe and his staff were amazing as usual. Great service, food and ambiance!!
