Farm-to-table
Like Tangletown Gardens' farming philosophy, we make our food as it was made long ago - when everyone ate organic or sustainably, free range, locally grown food that wasn’t fussy or high-end. It was just good food from scratch, every day. We strive to bring our guests back to this old standard of cooking using the season’s best from our farm. Almost always, the offerings are produced in house.

We've eaten at Wise Acre several times, always a satisfying experience in every way. The noise level was quite manageable because we ate early....

I absolutely love this place! The menu is fabulous. Farm to table, from their very own farm in MN. We had a delicious appetizer of beet hummus with fresh, vibrant root vegetables. I loved the watermelon radish. Our dinners were delicious too. I would recommend this amazing, conscious & fabulous restaurant!

Love the fact that this restaurant is so connected to its farm. Eating locally and seasonally is important to me and Wise Acre Eatery shares this focus. Loved the squash dish that was the vegetable of the day.

I have been here for breakfast and return again for that. Dinner was disappointing- the pork chop had a lot of grizzle that was unbeatable. The pastrami was so fatty I couldn’t cut it to eat. The best hummus was bland. Our wait person, when asked what she recommended, chose the most expensive food in each category.
The ice cream was very good.
It’s a cute place and I like supporting local farmers and growers, but have already shared with others I would not return past breakfast.

Wise Acre was one of the original farm to table restaurants in the twin cities. The menu is different and delightful every time we visit. The converted 1950’s gas station amuses. The house-made frozen custard is a treat even in winter, especially with a shot of espresso. In the summer the outside seating is in an overgrown garden. Keeps us coming back for more.

Delicious food!! Loved the Valentine’s Day menu. Service was great for courses. Our initial wine order took over 20 minutes to come. But loved the wine too.

One of our party is allergic to onions. I called the restaurant ahead of time to make sure there would be food he could eat and they said there would be a note for the server to that effect. We confirmed with the server that there had to be no onion in or on his food. Nevertheless, she put onions on his plate as a garnish.
Wine is too high priced.
Food was very tasty.

This was our first time at this restaurant (we were with 2 other friends) and we all agreed we would come back. They have a very unusual menu, but very good. The mushroom starter was fabulous!

Everything was wonderful. Staff, food, ambiance, philosophy. There’s farm-to-table, then there’s farm-to-table + chef. Next level stuff. I’d move in if I could.

Absolutely delicious! If I could have licked each plate, I would have!! The share plate of mushrooms was divine, my entree of the falafel burger was outstanding and the brownie was amazing. The wait staff were super friendly and loved the ambiance in the evening. Highly recommend this place. It was worth every penny and I can't wait to return and share the joy of this restaurant with others.

Tried out Wise Acre for dinner because we are moving to the neighborhood. Fantastic food! Next time I'm ordering the mushrooms as a main dish. Great wine + beer options. We'll be back!

The food was amazing! But service so so. Food came out segmented and with wide gaps. But when it did it we delicious! When asked about the delay in the rest of the order, the wait staff simply stated “we are doing the best we can” and walked away.

Wise Acre has been one of my go-to eateries, although I have to say the prices keep rising and what I used to call the best burger in town isn't quite as good as it was. Still, an excellent place.

The ambiance and camaraderie is infectious and spreading. We went as 2 couples. Our guests discovered, to their surprise that their Chanhassen neighbor was there with their family. My wife bumped into her graduate school roommate whom she hadn't seen in years. The service and descriptions of the food were absolutely delightful.

We love Wise Acre. The quality is, to borrow a phrase, "outstanding in the field"! Our only issue would be wishing they would change their menu a bit more. Their offerings are great, but we could use some variety. Love it nonetheless!

We enjoy Wise Acre for a couple of reasons: the quality of the ingredients, the flavorful dishes even from seemingly "boring" vegetables, and the friendliness.
