This restaurant is a local gem. The food is always top notch plus they have a great draft beer selection. Wait staff are always helpful and friendly.
This was our second time visiting the restaurant. We were excited to be there during restaurant week and celebrating a birthday but our visit was kind of disappointing. It really boiled down to service. Our server was less than attentive to our group of 6. It was a Tuesday night, so it wasn't exactly busy. She seemed more interested in watching the Wild game that they were playing over the bar. While she did note at the last minute that we were celebrating a birthday and brought out a mochi dessert, we were never offered a dessert menu(which would have been great because most of us weren't interested in the mochi).
It was also disappointing to see that they drastically reduced the menu due to restaurant week. Basically it felt like we were either to order from the restaurant week menu or have a burger. I get that during a special week like that restaurants sometimes limit their menus, but it was surprising to find such limited options especially because I had looked online prior to booking and saw the full menu listed.
My favorite neighborhood gem! Great food, ambiance and service ( thank you Evan!). Cocktails are also excellent.
Went for restaurant week for some girlfriends- we had a great time, most of the food was delicious, particularly the pork hash dumplings, pork tenderloin, Ahi entree, and apple/pear tartlet for dessert. The watercress salad was billed as a highlight, but it was just your average salad. We also shared a wonderful bottle of pinot noir... good for a special dinner!
Very interesting and creative menu. Had a group of 6, each of us ordered something different. All of us enjoyed our meals and cocktails. Nice touch was the mochi ice cream dessert for my birthday.
very dependable food, and friendly staff. a favorite spot.
First time dining in Lake and Irving. Warm welcome, very helpful to help choosing drink and meal. Excellent meal.
Lovely @ wonderful place with girlfriends! Rose sparkling wine was tasty!
As always.... this place knocks it out of the park. Thank you for the great food, bartender/server, managers, and consistency.
We all enjoyed our food and creative cocktails. We definitely will go back again. The scallops were amazing.The KFC cauliflower was sooo good. The ginger scallion Opakapaka is something I will come back for!
Great appys and Kevin was a fabulous server. Main dishes marginal.
Used to be my favorite restaurant. The last two times there it was good but not as good. Changed their menu and some of our faves are off the menu or changed.
Enjoyed a great meal on a chilly rainy October evening. Great atmosphere!
Went for the chicken sandwich and cheeseburger. Both were great. Will be back again for sure.
I had the cauliflower appetizer and the fried chicken sandwich with a side salad for my entree. The appetizer was very tasty with just enough spice.
Chicken sandwich was delicious, I had some left to take home and it was just as good the next day
Delicious brunch food with yummy aioli options. We noted “need 2 booster seats” on our reservation and there were crayons ready to go at the table upon arrival. Love the vibe and appreciated how cool everyone was with our toddler chaos.
Best neighborhood-meets-comfort-food restaurant in town.
What an awesome night! Awesome weather on the patio, great food, great service!
Sunday brunch was amazing! Great variety of options and my entire group was super satisfied with their food. I highly recommend their chicken and waffles!! Or anything to be honest, they also offer their DELICIOUS buttermilk chicken sandwich for brunch, so make sure to dive into that bad boy (yummm!)
What a surprise this was. Food was great, wine was reasonable and the service was very good.
Casual setting with gourmet food.
The food was the star of this show - very nice flavor profiles that were well executed. The atmosphere was a little loud and not as cozy as some other Minneapolis gems but I would not let that prevent me from going Lake & Irving again.
Listed as a foodie favorite by open table wasn’t quite accurate. Food was average and service ok. We’ve been underwhelmed here for breakfast too.
Best casual dining in Uptown. And the burger is the best in town. Amazing place.
We went on a Monday night for our Anniversary so it wasn't crowded but everything about the restaurant was excellent. I would definitely go again and would highly recommend it!
A solid place with good food and prompt service. Exciting drink menu.
Great food, great service and great neighborhood
Very good food and excellent server! So enjoyable-
We have been to Lake & Irving many times. It is a terrific go-to neighborhood restaurant and bar - even though we live 45 minutes from the neighborhood. Excellent food, if a somewhat limited menu; terrific bar; and outstanding service. Very good and always dependable.
Easy place to have some good food. Walking distance to Uptown.
Fried chicken sandwich was amazing and the fresh pasta is highly recommended.
Stop here. It’s worth it.
Great food and services as usual!
Great experience all around for celebrating a birthday dinner with family
We love Lake & Irving. The food is always reliably delicious with attentive service (just the right amount of attention). We brought good friends and sat outside on the patio. Great place-we will be back. It's a neighborhood favorite!
Delicious food, tasty drinks and a great place to meet out of town friends. Each time we go we live the food and service. See you next time!
Best comfort food in town. The burger is amazing.
Lake & Irving has a great every day menu, but if they have a special the night you are there you owe it to yourself to order it!
Lake & Irving is a neighborhood favorite. It’s a place to go to see friendly faces and enjoy consistently great food.
I really enjoyed my quiche, although I was hoping it'd be a bit bigger. Everyone in our party of 7 enjoyed their meal. I'd love to go back!
We had a terrific experience, good food and excellent service. We really liked our server, Josh!
We had a great dinner with teenaged daughters. Both KFC and brussel sprouts were hits. Salmon, hanger steak, cheeseburger and caprese sandwich were all great.
Always yummy with very good service-a wonderful combination
