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!

Everyone in our party of four was over the top thrilled with the ambiance, service and food. The dishes were creatively prepared and presented and were extremely flavorful. The table setting was even attractive with the leather flatware sleeves; nice touch.

Tulibee is a fun restaurant in the lower level of the Hewing- the atmosphere is lovely with the wood fire oven and bright city lights.

The server was friendly and charming.

The food was hit or miss. We split a "butcher cut" steak that was "ok" for 50+ dollars. Good but certainly not brilliant. We ordered a squash side that was made in the wood fire oven- absolutely al dente aka raw. We were offered another one but our event was getting close. She comped us with a dessert that was delicious.

Lastly it would be good if they had a better cocktail list. Their NA drink list was impressive.

The other thing is the menu is pretty limited.
So- I would go again. But I was hoping for more.

Tullibee was so disappointing. The food and drink were good, but service was abysmal. It took 30+ mins just to get a drink and 30-45 mins between each course. (I am not kidding.) Tables that were seated after us were finishing multiple courses while we sat. Our server was both overwhelmed and rigid and impatient with us. At one point, she said, "I'm going to do something nice for you, like buy you a round of drinks." When our bill came, she had comp'd a side of mushrooms. (I am not kidding.) This was a $400+ meal for 3 of us. Food was good but not at all worth the wait. Or the attitude.

Tullibee has become our favorite local restaurant. Great menu. Farm to table meets creative flair. Solid beef and pork selections but vegetarians can be well satisfied too. Terrific bar. Old fashioned made right. Service attentive and knowledgeable.

We had a great experience at Tullibee. We eloped in the afternoon and took friends out to dinner to celebrate before staying at the hotel. Our server, Phil, was excellent. He recommended a great wine to pair with the food we chose. Food was really good, I thought the scallops were slightly over salted. But all in all it was a great time!

We went to the tullibee to celebrate my husbands 30th birthday and had the absolute best experience! The food was amazing and you can tell the chefs are very passionate about the taste and presentation of food. Our server John was THE MAN and made our evening unforgettable! He was super knowledgeable about the all the menu items, ingredients in dishes, and even what farms the ingredients came from. He made our night! We will for sure be back :)

We have been coming here since they opened and have never been disappointed but this last time was probably our best experience. The food is amazing so that is always consistent factor, but this last time we had probably the best server we have had at any restaurant. He was so personable and honestly the best. His name was Phil, and I hope his managers know great he is!

Our dinner server was Kate V. I believe - I read her name off our receipt. Older women with a ponytail. She said some rude things to us like "No don't order that, I don't recommend that, or I wouldn't be doing my job". She tried to really upsell us, even though our bill was $106, it felt like we weren't ordering enough, or we were being cheap. She just made multiple off putting comments- like when we ordered apple pie for dessert, she said "oh, just one?" And at one point she came over to get the check and said she was sorry, "she just COULDN'T GET AWAY from this other table"- like in an exasperated way. It was really just a turn off. It felt like her service was fake, and wasn't very genuine. It was really disappointing.

Don't be put off by the fact that this is a restaurant in a hotel. This is a chef-driven restaurant in an impressive space just off the lobby/bar area. We were there on New Year's Eve, so it was a Prix Fixe Menu. Every course was impressive and after a quick chat with the chef they handled a food allergy at our table without issue. The risotto was a personal fave. Impressive service, fun atmosphere and great food. Check them out!

We had reservations for a NYE fixed menu. There were several courses and each was a good portion size, we were full by the end. The optional wine pairing was reasonably priced. Our server was very attentive. The food was very good!

The atmosphere is incredible. The service is great. The food is alright. They get a little extra points for the presentation which is clearly a focus.

This was one of the first meals I've had in my life where I preferred the vegetables to the main course. And when you're ordering steak, you expect that to be the showstopper. It wasn't. Not a great flavor at all.

Overall, its way overpriced for what you get. I wouldn't tell anyone to go here for more than just drinks.

Also, please tell you cooks to stop eating with the hands they are preparing food with. You have an open kitchen. We can see you eating...that glove on your hand is no longer clean after entering your mouth. gross.

Our server, Phil, provided top notch service and kept us updated with the food readiness. My friends raved about the Tullibee Old Fashioned, my Behind the Mask was just OK. The Kale and Apple salad was fresh and tasty, the Roasted Baby Beets salad was beautifully presented and tested just as good, the Charcuterie plate was nicely plated and my wife loved the ham! I ordered the Fish in Chips and I was not disappointed. The Mushroom Risotto with Scallops was fantastic, my friend did not care for the wild rice included in the risotto. All in all, we always got great service and good food every time we visit Tullibee. Check it out.

Chose to celebrate our first Christmas together at Tullibee last night with my other half, and we can’t stop talking about it. The prix fixe menu was outstanding. Every dish came out perfectly and at an even pace. The menu started with toast and whitefish spread which was seasoned perfectly. Not too salty and definitely not bland. It was followed by an exquisite soup and delicious salad, there was a duck dish with home made pasta, tasty sausage, potatoes and raclette, salmon and beets, and the most tender lamb I’ve ever had. The finale was a chocolate Yule log that was not too sweet and incredibly decadent.

Our drinks were tasty and Meredith was a sweet heart. We had a wonderful time and look forward to making Tullibee our go-to spot in Minneapolis when in town.

Chef, staff, and everyone else who contributed... Thank you so much for putting this experience together!

Christmas Day - special menu was 5 courses. Absolutely delicious food. Our server was attentive, however the kitchen was slow getting food out. As a result - we were seated 30 minutes after our reservation and it took an additional 30 minutes to start being served our food. Chalk it up to it being a holiday and likely they were short staffed. I'd go back in a heartbeat!

However, when I called for reservations for four people for the Christmas Dinner I was NOT told dinner was not being served until late afternoon. I believe I then made the reservation at Open Table for 1:30. When making the reservation I do not recall any notice on the site that dinner was NOT being served at that hour.

Upon being seated we were astonished when the table had the brunch menu. The waiter told us about dinner not being served until 5:30! This took us by surprise! It was not convenient to make other plans so we had Christmas Brunch....the waiter was understanding, service was excellent, drinks and food were very good.
