Delicious! We had scallops and sea bass, both great!
The place was amazing and romantic, I proposed to my girlfriend there! It was the perfect environment!
Very Disappointed. Menus were given to us with several sheets of paper. All falling apart. Waitress brought out our drinks two seperate times and forgot my glass of wine twice. I had to finally ask for it. Tried to order the beet salad to accompany our dinner and waitress said we could not get that salad because it was only on the Valentine's menu. Which was offered the night we were dining. She also said that the chef would make no exceptions. Also, four of us in our group all order the Beef Wellington. None of the four meals came out the way we ordered them. Two were suppose to be Medium Rare and two were suppose to be Medium Well. All of them came out Well Done. The puff pastry was burnt also. One person ordered the Seafood Fettuccine and it contained serveral pieces of shells in the pasta from the shrimp. Way over priced for the quality and portion of food that was served.
What a beautiful, renovated old home! So romantic and quiet.
The food was amazing. Highly recommend for special occasions and celebrations
We were sat on the third floor, where it was very quiet and allowed us the ability to talk among ourselves and enjoy the ambiance. While sitting waiting for our food other couples were commenting on the history of the third floor and the stories heard about ghosts, which was entertaining whether you believe or not. The service was great and the food was delicious. My wife and i enjoyed our experience.
Delicious food and cocktails. Expensive but worth it.
The restaurant was pretty good. We were greeted right away and taken to our table. The waiter and greeter were very friendly. The waiter did get a little pushy at the end of the dinner for dessert to make up for the overly salty walleye I had. The menu selection isn’t large so you are limited. In my opinion, it’s much overpriced for what you get. We got the candied shrimp; rip off. 3 pieces of jumbo shrimp for $17, HA! The portion of our meals were good but definitely overpriced. The walleye was over salted, I had to drink plenty of water. My wife’s fettuccine with scallops was decent, but she kept getting chunks of spices stuck to the roof of her mouth and having to spit out pepper shells and other spices.. the food was hot which was good otherwise I would not have eaten it. Wouldn’t be interested in coming back, there are many restaurants with better quality and creativity in the food for half the price.
Awesome time great waitstaff
This place is run down, the food is ok, none of the dishes were hot. Will not go back
Went for Valentines Day, exceptional pre fixed menu, every course was melt in your mouth wonderful. Wine list excellent. Atmosphere the best, and did we mention it is a haunted Victorian mansion, so wonderful. Always a great evening
Excellent service and food! For sure we’ll be back. :))
Service has room for improvement. At these prices we expected much better. Our server was very rushed, brash, and honestly did the bare minimum. If the food wasn’t so stellar, I doubt we’d ever go back. The food was that amazing that we’re going to overlook the poor service.
Haven’t been to Forepaugh’s for years, but took out of town friends there recently. The “haunted house” sells itself, warm and so charming. The food was unbelievably good and a great wine list. The serving staff were very attentive to our needs and John the maitre d’ made our evening so special! We’ll definitely be back.
The food was AMAZING. The service was very so so. Overall, a great experience.
Host was immediately welcoming to start out and staff continued the excellent experience throughout. Great food, great setting (excellent tour), warm environment and service. A+
I love the place and the food. It was very tasty. I had the beets salad, delicious! My husband had the mussels, he really liked them! For the main course, We had the scallops and the Ribeye. The scallops were big but they had nothing special, if they put more lemon or some kind of herb, it would have been better. The steak was great! perfectly cooked and a good portion. It came with delicious mushrooms and potatoes but there was too little of each. So Food tasted great in general but the veggies on the side were just not enough!! OH and the desert, the banana one, was fantastic, not too rich, but little small!
Lori our server was perfect and food and service was excellent
This was my first visit to Forepaugh's, a St. Paul institution in business since 1976. I took my wife there for a special dinner. The venue itself is very classy, a 3-story Victorian originally built in 1870, and meticulously maintained. Unfortunately we were underwhelmed with our experience. My wife said it was a place that "is trying to be fancy, instead of being fancy". The dinner started well enough, but the service was slow, there were bits of cork in my glass of wine, the waitress served my meal to my wife. Above all, the AC kept kicking on during the meal and blowing in my wife's face. Normally this wouldn't be an issue but it was about 5 degrees outside, being the middle of January. For the price, I would expect better and for that reason, for the value there are other, better options in town.
This converted mansion into a restaurant is unique. The food was excellent. I have had better foie gras I'd try one of their other appetizers that looked amazing as they passed our table and sounded tasty on the menu
