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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
