We love it at Loring. Food was excellent along with the service. And, of course, the ambiance is outstanding. We’ll be back.
Visited for the Sunday brunch. Good variety, high quality. Best roast beef on a carving station that I've ever had. Nice dessert choices.
My wife and I went here for dinner on a Friday evening and were quite pleasantly surprised. The ambiance was great with a variety of different types of table settings and elevations and a quite good 4-piece jazz band playing on a small stage at a really reasonable volume. It was possible to enjoy the atmosphere of the place along with the music and at the same time hold an actual conversation without having to shout. Really a big plus these days! And the food turned out to be really good, too! We shared the bourbon mussels as a starter which were fantastic. I then had a medium rare flat iron steak which was cooked perfectly, and my wife had the mushroom penne pasta dish with added pancetta at the recommendation of the waiter and it was really good. We also enjoyed some really good cocktails from off their menu and had a decent glass of their house wine. Altogether a very enjoyable evening at a reasonable price.
We have never had such bland food. Never in my life have I taste plain asparagus with no seasoning, not even salt, until tonight.
We went to McDonald's after because neither of us finished our meals.
Went for my anniversary with my boyfriend and totally loved it!
The Loring Pasta bar interior and menu feel dated. I would like the menu to have more vegan/vegetarian options. It feels like a time capsule.
Very good food and service - we will be back!! Yummy!!
We were all dancers who were there to dance to Cornbread!! It was so much fun, although the dance floor was very limited. I’ll go again though to hear him and his band play.
Service was amazing, loved our waitress
Terrific service, we were there before a theater event and got our food in a timely manner. Beautiful ambiance, live music that was not overpowering. We were able to converse and enjoy the music.
It was my husband’s birthday, he was offered a complimentary choice of dessert.
Funky decor, fun place to go.
This was such a cute place—much bigger than I expected, but it had a great aesthetic. I will definitely come back!
Fabulous place! The buffet was well worth $20 (or $15 if you’re a student) and the decor & live music were very lovely. The only thing I would not recommend is the endless Bloody Mary - SO peppery!
One of my favorite date nights in a while! The setting is really romantic, we had a live band and beautiful lighting. Also the food was outstanding.
Sam was a great server. Food was delicious!
We went for Valentine’s Day and they had an awesome special with wine, salads/an appetizer, 2 entrees and dessert. Everything was absolutely delicious and the service was wonderful. Also amazed by the space- so beautiful and unique!
Best place for a date in Minneapolis! The food was excellent, the service superb and the music perfect.
The atmosphere was great! The loaded fries were a great start but my goat cheese ravioli was cold and undercooked. Overall I was unhappy with the food for the price but it’s still a very cute place.
I had to send my steak back 2 times because It was raw on the inside and that’s because they sear it to quickly on the outside and don’t worry about getting it to cook evenly all the way though but are waitresses was very understanding and helpful but still made us pay for the steaks after not eating either of them because they were raw
Service was terrible and the table and booth were dirty but the food was good
Dear Jamie, we appreciate your feedback and thank you for joining us on such a busy evening. We are so sorry for the service you experienced and will be using your comments as training with our service staff going forward. We hope to make a better experience for you with service that matches our good food in the future.
First of all no server for the first 15 minutes. Finally got someone who said we were not their table. then after a long time order both had salad and pasta. when we finally got our food (very late since we were going to performance at Northrop) we just got for one person. It was mine and the pasta was cold. My friend had to ask for hers after a good 15 minutes. The server said she thought we were going to share one. WOW - that was very odd. We did not get an extra plate from her to share with. Then by the time she got her food - I had given her my salad to eat. Way Bad.
We noticed. knowledgeable person helping on other tables and asked her for help She was a manager and very nice. She comped us one meal and aplogized and said the restaurant could do better. My friend and I were so disappointed it is hard to imgagine coming back to Loring.
Dear Guest, we are so sorry for the untimely service you experienced with us. As the owner had said when speaking with you that evening, your experience is unacceptable and we are using it for further training with our staff. We thank you greatly for joining us before your event, and we do hope for the opportunity to make this right with you in the future.
When we showed up for our 5:30 reservation they didn't have our table ready (waited about 15 minutes). Once were seating it took about 25-30 minutes to get a server. It took almost an hour and 20 minutes before we received our first drink. Overall, we were at the restaurant for nearly 3 full hours. Everything just took way too long, from being seated, to getting drinks, to getting dinner, to even getting the checks. Our waiter appeared overworked and it wasn't all his fault. The food was good, but overall it felt like Loring just could not accommodate a busy restaurant.
Dear Luke, thank you for your feedback and we greatly appreciate you joining us that evening. Our staffing levels were not up to our standards as a business and we apologize for your wait. We do hope to make this experience right with you in the future.
Perfect setting. Meal was great and the atmosphere is fun
Perfect setting not to busy not to crowded. Dinner music was perfect and food tastes great.
We weren’t very impressed with anything at this restaurant
Four of us went to Saturday brunch at the Loring bar. Everything about this outing was A+. The ambiance was great, the food was perfect, and service was wonderful - Thank you Sylvia (our server). Look forward to going back again and again.
We had dinner to celebrate our birthdays.
The food was good
Crab guacamole was delicious! Our sever was attentive and helpful. Wine by the glass menu was mediocre at best.
I came here with my family for my birthday, amazing food and great service!
Booked a reservation days in advance only to arrive to a private wedding. They smushed us in a table in the corner of the bar which wasn't the special Holiday outing we had planned. Food was OK but pasta was served lukewarm. We've enjoyed them in the past, but this was not a good experience.
Dear Mark, thank you for your feedback, and we are so sorry for the experience you had with us. Your experience has already helped changed our procedure in managing our private event-to-food service change over, and we hope to make your experience right with a gesture from our management if you would like to visit us again. We would love to make this right. Thank you again for your perspective.
Tuesday’s are date night, so you get their amazing food at a great price.
This was our first time at this location. We used to go when it was near Loring Park. Great service and delicious food. We will go again
Great service and delicious food for our entire group. I will be coming back!
There was a mouse near our table for an hour and no one did anything about it...
Unfortunately, one of the worst experiences I’ve had at a restaurant. We sat in the bar and someone, who ended up being the bartender brought us plates, silverware, and water. I said thank you but the person wouldn’t make eye contact or respond. We then waited 25 minutes with no response- I have no problem ordering from the bar but that would have been a good time to tell us that is what he would like. I tried to make eye contact with the bartender and was waved at to come to the bar where I then had to again wait for his attention to order and he then came to our table twice to clarify our order. While waiting we killed two bugs that looked like ticks and were full of blood. I could continue but wouldn’t recommend eating here under any circumstance.
Dear Valued Guest, We are so sorry for the experience you had while dining with us. The type of service you have described is unacceptable, and we will use your experience as an example during our employee training from here on. No matter the business levels, we are here to serve you to your expectations when enjoying an evening out. We would be happy to make a gesture on your behalf, if you plan to visit us again. Thank you for input and perspective!
Been there many times over the years and like it very much.
Nice, cozy atmosphere with quality, rustic pasta dishes. Would recommend to anyone wanting a quality dining experience without lofty prices
First time buffet partakers, it was FABULOUS!!! Our family travels from Iowa to eat at Loring because we love it so.
Great food and environment! We will definitely be returning
The food at The Loring is very good. The menu items are varied and the Tuesday date night special is a good value.
