I dined with a friend and we had shakshuka with eggs which was rich and delicious. The lamb shank with sweet and white potato poutine was a lovely surprise with a delicious mushroom gravy, the lamb was tender and the fries were crisp. We also had the carrot salad which was so refreshing and flavorful. I hope to go back again soon.

The space is gorgeous. The service was attentive and pleasant. The price was fair and in line with other restaurants offer similar food and quality. The food (Moroccan flavored salmon) was superb: savory and tasty to the last bite. Yum!

Now open for Sunday night dinner. Been following his cuisine since Mpls Cafe days. The ambiance of the Art Deco space is one-of- kind. The food is interesting and well prepared. The “social” menu is offered in addition to the regular dinner menu with very reasonable prices.

We had a wonderful celebratory dinner, with special treats provided and a wonderfully helpful server. The food was terrific and the decor spectacular. I would absolutely recommend it. We shared tastes of several items, but there is much more on the menu that I'd like to try.

I was torn between giving 3 or 4 stars. I am from San Francisco, where restaurants compete hard for customers with discriminating taste (food mecca). I was forworn by the local friend who recommended this place that the expectations for food quality are lower outside of the Bay Area. She also mentioned that fish dishes in the "middle states" is not their specialty and I should stick with meat dishes. I decided to be adventurous and ordered halibut as the main dish since I love the nuanced taste of this delicate fish. Unfortunately, she was right. fish was lost in a copious amount os souse and bread crumbs. It seems that most dishes have a sauce that, rather than complementing, competes with the main ingredient. I can see what the chef was going for, but it did not work - the dish was too sweet.

The Art Deco decor is outstanding. The restaurant wasn’t crowded so the noise level was nice. We had outstanding service and the management team checked on us three times. The food was very good. Our halibut main course with the avocado butter was very tasty. Loved the lemon saffron risotto with seared scallops. A fantastic couple’s evening. Thank you Fhima’s.

This is our favorite restaurant in downtown Minneapolis. We have been here four or five times already, twice with our two grandsons (ages 9 and 11 -- and they love it too). The food is great, and the bar is also outstanding. Service and atmosphere are also great, and nothing beats the Art Deco decor.

We visiting near the July 4th weekend and there was a baseball game that night so the place was surprisingly empty. At first we were concerned, but relied on the ratings from Open Table and stayed for dinner. It was really good. Definitely give this place a try if you are in the area.

Hardly anyone was in there. The menu was not great. Appetizers were not good (the French fries were good though). We left and did not eat dinner there. Pictures online were deceiving. The old fashioned drink table side prep was best part of experience.

Really great brunch menu with familiar classics as well as Mediterranean specialties that are well-executed and provide a balanced menu. The Shakshuka skillet, Muffuletta, and chicken and waffles were all excellent. Interesting beverage menu. The specialty cocktails were good but a little on the pricey side. Would definitely recommend for brunch.

We had a nice time, and the service was great, however, the concept of the restaurant and menu was hard to follow. The food was very rich, to the point where I could only have a few bites of something that was large enough to be a singular meal. We both left with stomach aches due to the richness.

Went for a business lunch and was very disappointed. Food was mediocre, especially for the price point. An $18 steak salad should not leave someone feeling hungry! Service was also lacking. We were one of three tables in the whole place and food still took 35 minutes to come out. It’s unfortunate, because it’s a gorgeous, iconic space, but I won’t be returning.

When we arrived for our 1pm reservation on a Saturday we were literally the only people in the restaurant. No other diners to be found. This made for a slightly weird vibe. Because we were the only ones there our service was excellent. Overall this place is fine but I don’t think we’ll be back. The crepes were ok but were slightly rubbery tasting. Our mains were tasty but nothing to write home about.

We are so happy to see someone in the area that once was the Forum Cafeteria. David Fhima has a good job with complementing the Art Deco decor. Moving the bar up front is a great idea. We loved the food with the French and Moroccan twists. Thank you, David!!
