About Permanently Closed - Muffuletta
This restaurant is permanently closed. The daily-printed menu, filled with irresistible flavors and
tempting aromas, is truly a feast for the senses. The wine menu is hand-
picked by the Sommelier and also changes to reflect the seasonal
and ethnic influences of the cuisine. -
Jeremy Iggers of the Minneapolis Star Tribune describes the restaurant
as "a candle-lit chef-driven bistro with an imaginative globe-trotting menu."

Muffuletta - Permanently Closed Ratings and Reviews
Nice food but very inattentive service for an early Sunday evening when there weren't many customers yet. Server checked in with us when we were seated but then disappeared for 20 minutes. We then decided to place our whole order of drinks, appetizers and entrees all at once since we were afraid he wouldn't come back. Our food came out fairly promptly after that, but we then waited a very long time to get our check so we could pay and leave. In the end we spent over 2 hours there of which about 30-40 minutes was spent just waiting for our server to come to our table. They've also reorganized the menu and looks like they no longer bring a complimentary bread basket anymore but make you pay for one, and when it arrived it was pretty skimpy for a party of 5. Overall, food was good and we liked some of their new menu offerings, but inattentive service detracted from the experience and will make us think twice before going back.
Three women were allowed to linger longly over lunch, and our server was accommodating, though a little scatter-brained. My fritto misto was a tasty and well-prepared plate, the special of the day, shepherd' pie, was reported to be good; beet salad was fresh and good, but way overboard on greens and light on cheese and seasoning.
The restaurant is a nice, spacious venue, though parking is difficult. Overall very pleasant.
As always, the food was excellent! Fresh fruits and vegetables, exceptional meat. The fact that Minnesota farmers are the source of some of the food is a plus. Nice variety of foods on the menu and a fun place for our family to meet and eat!! Our wait person was so attentive!
The food was flavorful, with reasonable portions and attention to quality and presentation. The service was attentive and professional. The setting was on the quieter side and very clean and comfortable. It was a very pleasant experience overall, and I would return and recommend without hesitation.
I have been coming here for years and today I noticed the bread basket which used to be complimentary was now a $2.00 charge. I ordered the turkey burger and the flavor was meh - not anything special. I actually got sick to my stomach from it. Great service as always though. Wasn't wowed by the too-crispy fries either. The food used to be so good!
Wonderful as usual! We ordered the steak frites which my wife and I have both had in the past. The frites have been changed from thin, almost shoe-string fries to much thicker wedges and although out initial reaction was mild disappointment, they were excellent!!!
We had a really nice dinner at Muffuletta. Our server was friendly, patient and knowledgable. The pork chop was delicious though quite spicy. The moonfish special was good too. I was not overly impressed with the wine list. It felt like your standard wine selection but a bit over priced and small pours. That was my only real complaint. Great location and neighborhood. We will come back for lunch to try the muffuletta sandwich soon.
The Asian burger and Turkey burger were dry and tasteless. I had the Turkey, didn't see any avocado or cheese. Perhaps mushrooms were the dark, chewy things on it. The salad with it was small and tasty, lots of green leaves. Our companions enjoyed the trout and roasted beet salad.
I did enjoy the salmon flatbread appetizer and the creme brulee. Would have liked more creme and no biscotti. on top.
Plus, we should have been told when making the reservation that the road would be torn up.
Overall liked my salad. I had the beets with salmon. There were supposed to be candied walnuts and I literally had 2 in my whole salad. Arugula was fresh, beets plentiful. No need to overdo ingredients but be generous. People will talk about it and come back.
Meal started fine with wine, salad, and soup, but our two shrimp pasta specials were so full of lemon we couldn't taste anything else. We brought this to their attention and to their credit the server, manager and chef all sincerely apologized and deducted the entrees and dessert from our bill. But this means they aren't really tasting things in the kitchen which is worrisome. Their opening popcorn snack was also overseasoned with chocolate and ancho chili powder, so 2 bites and we were done with that too.
