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.

Enjoyed a nice meal during Restaurant week on Sunday evening. Our server was great! The herb and fennel porchetta was very flavorful and perfectly prepared. The carrot cavatelli was more a soup than an entree and although it was good would not order it again. Overall very good meal. We will come here again.

Ninetwentyfive is Wayzata's hidden gem. Great and easy indoor free parking, fabulous decor, service is as good as anywhere in Wayzata, the menu is creative and very importantly, ever changing and last, the quality is fantastic. We have been here 5+ times, each has never had one issue and each has been fantastic in quality. We would recommend to everyone, be it Happy Hour (fantastic) or a romantic "foodie" quiet dinner. Also, the only location nearby with music - Thursdays only.

Try this and you will go back often.

Lovely new restaurant. Very good server. Three out of four of us had excellent food.
Her salad was poor. Looked liked weeds with nothing on it. Could not eat it. Her pasta
was also poor, no flavor. Would we come back? Yes. Be careful what you order. Ask for

Last night, I had the best meal that I have ever had in Minnesota. I have been dining at Chef Lenny Russo's restaurants for 30 years ever since he opened Heartland Restaurant to pioneer Midwest Regional Cuisine at Heartland Restaurant in St. Paul. He moved; I followed. Wayzata, despite some of its wealthy citizens, has until recently not been (ahem) a food destination. No longer.
The meal started with a terrific rose champagne from a large cellar.
A small plate of perfectly pickled condiments followed. The white radish with a slice of carrot on top was my fav.
Lenny came out to explain that the geese for the foie gras were not force fed so I tried an amazing helping served on an extraordinary fried brown brad with a berry sauce and a plant found in many gardens anise hyssop. Wow! I grow it for pollinators--now it is food.
A small vegetable salad, some wine, gave a respite before the main course, a hen, potatoes, and a mushroom broth. The hen was perfectly roasted, falling off the bone and the juices filled the meat rather than being poured over them.
Desert was a strawberry shortcake with a surprise of a First Kiss apple (a new Arboretum cultivar) on the side.
Service was prompt and friendly. Each dish was fresh from the kitchen--not kept under a hot lamp. Slow dining does not mean that you have to wait for food; it means you linger over it, savor it, talk about it and celebrate it. Chef Russo is at the top of his game.

In general a very nice experience. good drinks, great food.
Service is somewhat slow and inattentive on a Thursday night, early evening, although the waiter was very nice.

The live music was too loud and disruptive, making it difficult and unpleasant to visit with friends.
I would NOT return for this reason. (OR call ahead to be sure that a "quieter group" is providing the
nights entertainment)

Service, horrendous.
Waited a very time for our food.
We were there more than 4 hours due to the slow service.
The noise level was very hard to hear my friends.
Had to move all the way on the back room in order to hear.
Food, ok

We had high hopes for brunch. The menu looked great, but the execution was poor. Our Eggs Benedict came out over cooked. And our omelet was room temperature.

To be fair, they replaced them both very quickly and didn’t charge us for one dish and removed the tea from the bill as well, but then I had to ask twice to get more hot water for the tea, even when I took the cover off the tea pot as a signal. The dishes were just soso, not the quality’s you’d expect at this new, premier hotel restaurant. I expected a lot more from Executive Chef Lenny Russo.

Our server was clearly inexperienced. Barely attentive and running around in a literal sweat, trying hard, but not knowing how to make it work and look professional. Management could have done a lot more to fill the gaps. The best staff person was the busboy!

menu is very selective and can be challenging. Too much reminder that it's in the midwest with items such as Bison. Chef needs to remember that restaurant is in Wayzata, MN, not somewhere else in the midwest. With the new chef, I'm going to be positive that kinks and menu are still being worked on. But staff wasn't very attentive so still need a lot of training to understand that appetizer plates need to be cleared immediately from table when entrees are served. Sat on our table too long.

Sometimes a hotel "gets it right" and hires a premier chef to delight their guests and the local community in their restaurant. This is the case with 925 located in the Hotel Landing in Wayzata. We were celebrating our anniversary and had a great evening. Every dish we tried including the dessert was delicious with great wine pairings available. We love that so many ingredients are locally and regionally sourced. Chef Lenny Russo (Heartland) "hits it out of the park.". Plenty of parking nearby as well as valet parking. We came by boat and parked at the public docks in Wayzata. Made a reservation for August 23, 2018 when they will have live jazz during dinner. We are delighted that the western suburbs in the Twin Cities is upping their superior culinary offerings. Welcome Chef Russo!

It seems as if the restaurant is trying to be a city-big hitter restaurant, without any thought to the actual dishes. Please, stop trying to hard. Create good food with a few on-trend touches, instead of trying to make 20 dishes hit every suburban-elegant cliché.
