need a few more Mid range entree offerings-- the butcher cuts, understandably are popular. do appreciate menu simplicity so its a razor's edge to get mix right

We had a reservation at 6:15p for 7 people but only 6 of us showed. Our server made the experience terrible. But we still tried to make the best of it. The menu is small like their dishes. In my personal opinion, they are overpriced for their style of food and service. Our server always seemed to quickly want to leave our table. Our food was served cold. There is no bread and sides — just meat. We waited awhile for our food that by the time it came out, just about everyone had left for the restroom from drinking only our water. It was a good thing that myself and one of my friends didn’t go. Someone other than our waiter brought out our plates. They didn’t know where which seat had ordered which plate. We too didn’t know which plate was which because most were just meat and didn’t know who exactly ordered what. Luckily I sat on one end and heard half of the table’s order and my friend who stayed behind with me heard the other half. We had to help tell the person who brought our food out who had what. It was getting louder where we couldn’t hear what the person who brought out our food were telling us what was on each plate. They had to musical chair our plates a few times. A second person other than our waiter, which had looked like a supervisor, came to help bring our plates out. We had to ask what was on a couple of plates because two people each ordered different types of ribeye — one bison and one beef. The lady answers a bit rudely that both are ribeyes. I then had to mention to her the meat difference. Then she was polite afterwards. By this time it was now 8p. My bill came out to $150. I ordered the 16oz bison ribeye and a red bottle of wine. Just about everyone at my table tipped the server low because of the terrible service. Believe me, I also wanted too. But I’m not that kind of person. I once worked in the restaurant industry too. I still tipped the poor service at 20% and left a suggestion note to the server.

for some reason our service was slow on thanksgiving. for instance it took 20 minutes for
someone to
come
to the table and it was not our server! we ordered 3 drinks but only received one - a glass of cremant. then it took 30
minutes to get the cocktail and a beer as we had to dind someone to take the order again! that’s a l o n g wait for am opening drink.
otherwise it was okay - but rather lackluster service overall.

To be fair, it was thanksgiving but we were seated 45 minutes late and then the service during the meal was really bad. Was never offered a round of drinks or anything for what was obviously a bad experience. The food in general was great.

We ordered 3 vegan meals and didn't receive all of our food. Had to ask repeatedly for what was missing. Our server was nice but didn't seem to care much, since mistakes kept happening. Our single portion of vegan stuffing was burnt when it finally arrived, right before the pie. Then they brought one piece of pie. For 3 people. It was very surprising for a $75/plate meal.

Every bite of Thanksgiving dinner was tasty and there was quite a bit to taste. Nothing was left out of the tradition including sweet potatoes in the inspired form of gnocchi. Attentive service.

We went to Tulibee for their Thanksgiving Dinner and we’ve never experienced such a poor dining experience here before. When we arrived we were immediately asked if their were any allergies at which time we told them their was a gluten allergy. Our server said they had gluten free substitutes for each course. Our first course took over an hour and the gluten substitutes were never brought. As the second course came out it took 30 minutes between each portion of the course to come out even though it was supposed to be family style and all parts of the course were intended to arrive at the same time. We finally escalated the lag time and concern that their had not been a gluten sub brought to the table at anytime. We also noted that we were told a dish was gf when it clearly was fried, the chef simply chuckled and stated it was definitely not gluten free. He then asked if we would like a substitute option.. which again was never brought.

Separately it took 20 minutes after we sat down to be asked what we would like to drink and thereafter we had to flag down our server to ask for drinks.

We certainly would be more understanding given staffing shortages everywhere, but the restaurant wasn’t even to half capacity.

While the food itself was good once it finally arrived, it was lukewarm. Unfortunately the experience was so lackluster and disappointing for what should have been a special day for thanksgiving. Transparently l, our meal cost nearly $300 and I can say I would recommend it to anyone especially not at that price.

We had the special bloody Mary which had dill infused Aquavit which was fabulous with a smoked salt on the rim. However the cheese and leek omelette was so-so and the banana bread was ridiculously small for the price, and appeared to be toasted. The food prices were outrageous for the portions. I would return for cocktails only. The ambience was great.

Decent food and ambience, however just did not see the value in the high cost of drinks and a good meal. $120 for a ribeye? That’s obscene.

We went for brunch prior to the Vikings game. We arrived right on time. Ordered drinks and our food by 10:15. Great news, they have one of the best Bloody Mary’s around! At 10:45 we asked about our order and got a snotty answer about how busy they were. For the record, there were many open tables. At 11:05 still no food. We tried in vain to track down our server to cancel our food order and pay for our drinks. He was nowhere to be found. Needless to say we were pretty frustrated by this point. So we threw enough cash on the table to cover our drinks and left. We had high hopes for the food but never had a chance to taste it. It’s unlikely we will ever go back.

Awesome dinner with an amazing server. Sadly, he was clearly covering too many tables and made the experience very lacking in overall service. They desperately need to hire more servers.

The hostess set the tone for the evening. She was a delight. Our server was very attentive, but not overbearing. We did not care for the Gin & Tonics we ordered (we are not fans of these new "infused" make your own tonic bars - (Just a Schweppes, please.) She gladly took them off the bill and we ordered a bottle of wine. The food was excellent and I love the smell of the wood burning ovens. Overall a lovely evening.

Girls weekend included dinner here. Went for the evening special of the hogs head. It was crispy on the outside and succulent on the inside. Chef even came and inquired about our thoughts. Given they do their own butchering on site, the special made use of the whole hog while providing a new and excellent experience.

The celery root soup should be a spa treatment, possibly even a sacrament--gorgeous velvety texture, perfect garnishes, generous serving size. Everything else I had was also lovely, incl. a perfectly done pork chop and the gjetost ice cream dessert. This was my first time at Tullibee, and I will definitely be back to see what other seasonal/local wonders they produce.

Enjoyed most of the food. A few bites of duck was tough. I personally cook & write cook books. Strong 3-4 stars. Awesome service. Always enjoy farm to table type food. Missing the “wow” factor. I am always critical, but overall very well done. We really enjoyed the rooftop bar area. Ambiance rocks!!! Service stellar!

Had a really nice celebration lunch for 7. Service was great, food I would highly recommend. Only issue was a email after lunch saying the reservation was not eligible for 100 points. Not sure if it’s the restaurants issue or OpenTable. Not a very nice thanks you for spending $300 for lunch and $16 each for valet on 3 cars

Food was fantastic. Service was timely. Our waiter was nice and we liked him but I can imagine not everyone would - he had a sarcastic nature which we thought was funny. Restaurant is cool, great vibes, fun design. Was loud in there but was cool to be able to see the service from the kitchen as we were seated - always fun to watch chefs do their thing. If you’re going there thinking you’re going to get a lot of food for your money, don’t bother. But if you’re expecting a delicious, well portioned and refined meal in an urban hipster upscale joint, this is the place.

I ordered a pork chop and it was under cooked and I was unable to eat it.

They offered a new one but by the time I already have eaten the garnish so I decline but they still charge me the whole thing.

My husband ordered roasted potatoes without cheese since he is lactose intolerant they brought potatoes with cheese they brought out a new order but by the time my husband had already finish his chicken

The restaurant was busy so I guess that is why they took a little longer to come and check on us.

Amazing service by our waiter Phil! Great pre Valentine's dinner. We were staying at the hotel and wanted to get our dessert to go but the waiter said he'd have someone run it up. Next thing you know, there he was with our perfectly plated dessert. Talk about above and beyond. Definitely will be back!
