I reserved a table for 6 to see Molly Maher and Martin Zellar as it stated on FB that “there was no fee but reserve a table as there were only a certain amount left”. We drove out there (from St. Paul) and our table was not even in the same room as the music. Not worth staying and staff didn’t seem to care as they said they could do nothing about it. You may want to make it clear on website that people may not be seated to see the music. Very disappointing.

The hospitality at the restaurant is lovely and the setting restful and great for conversation. The food choices are varied and intriguing enough for return visits to try menu items. They have a special touch to celebrate your birthday, either a complimentary glass of champagne or sorbet dessert. Egg salad open faced sandwich had a great smoky grilled flavor in bread topped with egg salad. The hamburger was very good but the dried tomato slices were to chewy to enjoy. It's a lovely place with convenient parking.

Bravo to 925 and the Landing Hotel for hosting a fabulous Brunch with Santa. The food was delicious, the setting was beautiful and the servers were so patient with so many kids in the restaurant. The cherry on the top of it all was our visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus. It was very personal and not rushed plus the room decorations were so festive and classy. We will be returning year after year for this special event.

Santa and Mrs Claus were wonderful. they walked around greeting everyone. Our son was apprehensive when it was photo time and they got up to come talk to him around the corner and soon he was sitting with them, having a lot of fun. We enjoyed our Santa brunch!

We attended the Santa brunch and it was great! Kids loved it. We only booked the day before and they were able to accommodate and get us next to our friends’ table. The Santa was great and only a brief wait which allowed the kids some time to warm up. M&M pancakes were a big hit along with complimentary hot chocolate.

Some feedback: Since it’s a kid focused event, I was surprised they didn’t have coloring or something kid friendly to entertain while we were at the table. I would recommend at least for that event.

We will definitely try to attend next year again!

Went for the Thanksgiving buffet. The food was average: dressings were dry as cardboard, bread was also hard and dry, desserts were average - except for the pecan pie, which was delicious. Our waitress was fantastic and the space was beautiful. I wish they’d get their food game together.

Great atmosphere. Comfortable seating and a great menu. Choices are not overwhelming. Nice favorites and some new ideas. I had the Agnolotti pasta with duck pate. It was very flavorful and a lot of mushrooms. My husband had the salmon with wild rice. Pleased it was truly wild rice nut just pilaf. The soup starter was very good a pumpkin spice soup. Parking was no problem even have a lot attached to the hotel. Will definitely be dinning there again in the further. Looked over their happy hour looks fantastic!

We were so looking forward to a wonderful meal at Lenny's new place. However, we were disappointed all around. There were four of us, all women- seasoned diners and love to cook ourselves. The evening we dined at 925, our waitress was pleasant and efficient, but couldn't answer our questions about some of the menu items- she confessed she was new. One person in our group needed GF and the waitress checked with the chef several times, but was unable to identify GF items on the menu or offer a separate menu for GF without additional checking with the kitchen. Three of us decided to split the wild rice fritters starter, and a glass of the white wine on tap. For our meals, three ordered the apple garlic soup, and one the salad. The salad received favorable comments, but the soup needed some flavor- garlic it had but no tang or apple influence to the creaminess and we ended up asking for salt, which did help- some.... then, two of us ordered the walleye and two the half chicken. The walleye (which had been trimmed to a small rectangle) was perfectly cooked but the silky texture of the fish with the crunchy texture of the cornmeal coating didn't seem to fit together. We found the heirloom beans hard and overly salty. Those with the chicken both commented that they could have achieved the much the same results themselves in a crockpot- not much for tasty broth, ok chicken/veg. In discussing our meals and disappointment, we decided we should offer feedback, just in the interest of a new restaurant wanting to "work out the kinks". We expressly told the waitress we only wanted to offer constructive feedback. She offered to get the manager, we declined as some sort of comp wasn't our intent, but were informed desserts were on their way from the kitchen. More of the same....creme brulee wasn't set, and the others were so-so. Coffee was fabulous. We were disappointed- place looks great but the food wasn't up to expectations. Don't know if we'd try it again.

In two visits the food and the cocktails have been great but in both cases we have waited too long to order drinks and food. Once we placed our orders, service was fine but this is the second time we thought we were forgotten for the first 15 -20 minutes at the table.

Enjoyed our first visit. Food was good and drink prices were reasonable. Two items of concern. Music was a bit loud and it was hard to talk in the bar area. Second, the bison tartar needed a better condiment to use with the tartar.

It was nice and quiet for a Saturday evening. Great service and the food was amazing. The little extras they provide with the rosemary focaccia and relish tray were an added bonus.

I was excited to learn that the menu is constantly changing and I can’t wait to see what the winter menu has on it.

Our waitress was very inattentive, another one seemed much better, but unfortunately we were stuck with a different one. Food was decent but the eggs on my eggs Benedict were quite under done - runny egg whites - which really ruined it. My boyfriend’s food and his brother’s food was good though! So wouldn’t totally write the place off, but my experience wasn’t the greatest.

Ninetwentyfive had a slow start, but the new chef is bringing life to the restaurant. We had a fun, creative dinner and really enjoyed meeting the chef. I will say that it had been a restaurant that I wanted to succeed because it has a great atmosphere and is quiet except for music nights. It's worth a second visit if you have been disappointed in the past.

The atmosphere was fun. The service was a bit slow and unenthusiastic. But most importantly, my food was not good. I ordered a pasta dish, and the noodles were not properly cooked and the actually sauce tasted like the boiled water my noodles had barely cooked in. However, my girlfriend said her food was delicious, so maybe it was just my personal meal.

Small portions, overpriced, almost no flavor to any of the dishes. The cassoulet was cold and tasted like it had been just warmed up after having sat around for a while. The pastor was flavorless and in a broth-like soup. Very overpriced for the quality and the portion size. Will not be back.

I really liked the location and ambiance of ninetwentyfive, but while the food was good it wasn't great. I probably won't be back, but maybe that's just my taste. We also went on a Monday so maybe that's the day the main kitchen crew takes off?

The farmer's salad was very bitter and had huge pieces of thistles/wild lettuce, with ok-ish cherry tomatoes, unseasoned large chunks of chicken and an odd dressing. The mushroom pasta was a great idea and sauce but the filled pasta was overworked, thick, and hard. Good idea but they need to practice making the filled pasta because it's currently close to inedible... The pork chop was the most disappointing - there was more fat and bone than meat! The chop looked ~8-10oz and after cutting it up it was maybe 4oz of meat. The polenta served with it desperately needed some milk or even water - it looked like scrambled egg with hard grains of corn meal it in. I wouldn't be surprised if they make it weekly, it was stale and chunky and way too firm.

The bison tenderloin was delicious! And the cocktails were cute, seasonal and unique.
