Lyric Kitchen Bar
The Lyric is one of our favorite restaurants, burgers are always great, service is also great. It's a nice relaxed dinner.
Great prime rib! Service was attentive without being overbearing. Timing of food was also very good. It’s in a hotel so ambiance is a bit lacking but overall I’d definitely return
Food was burnt and awful but our server was great even though the experience wasn’t.
I love going to Lyric for the great location downtown and the validated parking but the food is hit or miss.
Lyric is a great location and I really enjoyed the look and ambience of the restaurant. We decided to check this place out for Sunday brunch! My companion ordered a burger with onion rings while I ordered the eggs benedict with a side pancake. I also ordered a mimosa, which was delicious. The pancake and syrup were delicious as well. I was full but couldn't stop eating it! Just a few small complaints - my poached eggs were less than consistent. One egg had a hard yolk with fully cooked white, while the other was completely undercooked, and the white was extremely gooey. The hollandaise wasn't very flavorful, but I will say the hashbrowns were great! The one thing I want to RAVE about is the onion rings! These must be homemade and breaded in-house because they were absolutely delicious!! They are like two inches white and were delicious with their ranch. Definitely would recommend those! Would love to check this place out again and try a few other things on the menu!
Our experience at Lyric Kitchen was incredible! The food, drinks were delicious and the staff so accomodating and friendly!
Lyric had a nice vibe to it...casual, urban with good food and several menu options. Enjoyed our food and our time! Thank you!
the popover with my meal was poor. the rest of the meal was good
Breakfast was phenomenal, but dinner was a dissapointment.
Have eaten at the Lyric Kitchen several times and have never been disappointed. They may have been short staffed at this most recent visit but still did well.
Good service. Good but not remarkable food. We enjoyed it and would come back.
It was our first visit to Lyric & our wedding anniversary! Our server made us feel extra special that evening, she was so attentive & even surprised us with complimentary dessert at the end of the meal!!
We love going to Lyric. Never had a meal we weren’t satisfied with and the service is always prompt & friendly
Good food...but it really feels more like a sports bar...
Great food and service!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience, primarily due to the wonderful service and delightful manner of our waitress Petra. She was knowledgeable about the menu and offered great suggestions, which we all enjoyed. She turned a good experience into a great one. Please pass along our many thanks to Petra and to management for providing us an experience we will no doubt try to replicate next time we are in town.
A new and very loyal customer, Adam
A good location in downtown Duluth with good food, reasonable prices, and excellent service. Our server, Benjamin, patiently answered our menu questions about draft beers and the Power Bowls. You cannot go wrong with any of the Power Bowls if you like vegetables and want a healthy entrée with an added protein. The Gooey Cake is a great end to the meal. Benjamin, thank you for your suggestions. They were spot on!
Great place. We eat here frequently & love eating here. Lots of variety on the menu & the staff is great.
Service and food was very awesome! Thanks for making the night special!
Consistently excellent food and service. Menu options are varied and suitable to all tastes. Lovely bar with top notch cocktails. A Duluth classic.
The food at Lyric is always fabulous! The manager visited our table and is fun to talk to. Our waitress was wonderful as well.
I went to Lyric for my 22nd birthday lunch with 7 friends, and our server was rude and unapologetic. She forgot our dipping sauces twice, which is fine but the way she reacted when we asked again was not friendly. She originally stated I get a free birthday desert, then proceeded after the meal to say I did not because my birthday was the next day. The food was delicious as always, but those who ate the chicken got sick a few hours later. The last time I was at Lyric our service and food was awesome, which is why I decided to spend my 22nd birthday here. However, this time I was let down and it definitely put a damper on my day. Overall, I will most likely not return and neither will my 7 friends (who all tip well and work in the restaurant industry so we know when things are bad).
Reserving a table through this website was so easy, I'm going to do it everytime! We were seated in a room off of the main dining area, which was awesome. Our waiter was super friendly but not the most attentive. I've eaten here and had great food before, but the panini I ordered this time was lackluster. Still, I love the location and the ambiance here so I will be back!
Great atmosphere! Feels cozy and can hear companions at the table. Food and service was great! Love this place!
I had been to the Lyric Kitchen once before for lunch and our party of seven was very pleased. Yesterday, a group of six of us went there for breakfast and were every bit as happy with our experience. Great food and service with reasonable prices! Would definitely recommend Lyric Kitchen to others.
GREAT evening at Lyric. Made reservation online & had a table waiyong for us during very busy pre-hockey game time. Waitstaff provided excellent service & dinner recs - chicken tenders with a variety of sauces were a big hit!
This was a first-time experience at the Lyric Kitchen for all seven of us in our party. We all agreed that it was a great experience and plan on coming back!
Food was ok but the all over service was poor. Took forever to get drinks. Server didn’t stop back often or fill water glasses without us asking.
Came in for brunch for a friends birthday. Was way too quiet, needs music and a livelier atmosphere. Felt that we had to whisper and were eager to leave. Drinks and food were also kind of expensive.
Good food great service! Prime rib was delicious. we would order the chocolate cake and lemon cake deserts again
Our group was celebrating a Birthday at the Lyric. Cassie, our server, could not have been warmer, more personable, more efficient or more professional; she was a delight. We loved her. If I owned a business, I would outright steal her from the Lyric. The manager that evening was the best. He accommodated a few requests, which we typically do not do, and made sure we were comfortable. That rarely happens! It was so refreshing to have a server and manager who did not possess attitude and airs. Kudos to Lyric Kitchen Bar.
My husband and I ordered the Popover and Prime Rib Special. The meal was one of the best we have ever had. Truly.
One of our friends commented that his burger was also one of the tastiest he had ever eaten. I love the atmosphere and decor. Comfortable, classy and well done. The Lyric just might be my new favorite restaurant!
I made a reservation for a birthday party, and wanted to try someplace we hadn't been. I requested the "quiet table" I heard about, which is a large round table in a separate area, and would be beneficial for my group. Not because of the bar noise (which was minor, because this was a Monday) but because I have some loud friends and didn't want to disturb others. We all had wildly varied food issues, from high level foodies, to heart healthy, to vegetarian, to allergies, etc. The online menu looked promising.
I was absolutely sure I had thought of everything, and yet I still expected the quiet table to not be available and some menu item that looked harmless might have cayenne in it or something would show up with bacon on it for one of the vegetarians.
So, when I walked in the door, prepared for tragedy, but hopeful, we were greeted by the manager and seated with our party (already arrived), and treated to an evening with one of the finest servers downtown Duluth has ever seen. Odd requests? No problem. Have a drink remixed? No problem. Spill the water because we spun the lazy Susan too fast? No problem. Spend two hours because we're loud and won't shut up? No problem.
Seriously, this place is a gem. Great atmosphere, cool decor, great layout, super inviting (once inside, because the outside is unassuming), amazing service, and the food is outstanding. Walleye tacos are a huge wow. Wild Mushroom Ravioli is a major win. Totchos are handmade and stellar. Mac and Cheese tots were raved over. Cobb salads were uncommonly impressive. And that flatbread was the size of a raft, with a complex blend of flavor profiles that did not disappoint.
Every single diner in my party (including myself) is rarely quiet if something is even slightly amiss, and the only issue anyone had was with a cocktail (wrong ingredient) which was swiftly remixed and delivered.
I cannot wait to come back to Lyric Kitchen for another fun evening. This was a home run!
Great service and was given a private space without asking.
Great place to eat, but it seems ever other visit I am having to tell them that they forgot to put my reward points from my previous visit. It gets tiring always having to remind them to add my points.
The app indicating GF came with bread on the plate. When asked about it the server then brought out a bowl of disgusting GF crackers and then finally some tortilla chips. The checks were all wrong and it took a long time and a lot of explaining to get it right. Disappointing GF menu and service.
So good! Nice atmosphere excellent service and the food was great! Very reasonable prices too. We had a group of eight, everyone loved their food. I would easily recommend this restaurant !
Our group of 8 grew to 10 and we were happy the restaurant could happily accommodate us. Service was fantastic and everyone enjoyed their food and drinks. We will be back!
We go out as a group (7) about once a week, this was the second time at the Lyric Kitchen. Both times the food was excellent. This time we had a small room to ourselves and this was perfect because the dining area was very busy/loud. Keep up the good work, we like it!!
First time at The Lyric and was very impressed considering they've only been open for a short time. Usually with new restaurants you expect a few glitches and everything was great. Will definitely be one of our go-to places.
