Good food and atmosphere, but pricey for the area and other options. Seating near the entrance so there was a rush of cold air when the hotel entrance door opened.

Can't get much worse than this place. Terribly slow service and mediocre food - most of which we did not eat. When we were seated we waited for 20 minutes without being recognized - finally we flagged a waitress down to ask who our server was. Guessing it was herself, she asked if we were ready to order. We had yet to see menus. Waiting for the menus was another 10 minutes... and the rest of the experience went on like this. Will definitely not be back... Duluth has much better to offer.

We ate here and were the only guests. The food was undercooked ( practically raw vegetables) with over peppered seasoning on the meal and vegetables. It was like a thick peppercorn crust, very unpleasant.

Had a great time and dinner with my wife there, unique menu with excellent choices. Service was wonderful, very attentive but not obtrusive. Great location being just a short walk from both the Norshor and Zeitgeist theatres.

The food was really mediocre and way overpriced for the poor quality. The salmon was really blah and overdone. I can make better salmon. Service was great though.

Hard to believe this was rated one of Duluth's best. I feel sorry for Duluth if that's the case. The restaurant was open to the bar and lobby of the Sheraton hotel. The shrieks of drunken hotel guests was a fitting background to the overpriced food and mediocre wine. No specials, no regional food, no salad with the main course. No vegetables with the entree. Really disappointing in all ways.

Great food. Service is excellent. The atmosphere is cozy with an urban vibe. Easy parking and access to the historic Norshor Theater by skywalk or the entertainment district and Lakewalk by sidewalk.

It falls short of what it’s trying to be, an upscale dinning experience. The wait staff is always new, the food is served fast food style, i.e. I’d like to finish a dish before the next is presented. Wine was expensive, $15 a glass or $60 the bottle, roughly the same price. Preparation, taste and presentation are much better than the actual serving. For the price I expect a much higher quality of service.

The food was good but not great for the cost of meals. The service was poor and we were the only people in the restaurant. We sat with empty glasses for at 15 minutes until I went up to the bar and ordered drinks myself. Our waitress was standing there and never even apologized.

This service experience was so underwhelming that I am saddened to write this review. The timing on our courses was so inept that I truly wonder why this server was hired. The appetizer was set down and before we knew it, the soup course was set on the table awkwardly because she was looking for a place to put it. And while we are trying to finish the app course,mind you the soup is still sitting on the table untouched, she brought the entree's which ended up sitting on a tray placed several feet from our table because there was no room on the table due to the previous courses not being cleared. PLEASE, what is the reasoning on this procedure?? She asked if she should return the entree' to the kitchen to be kept warm. Honestly, this was a disaster from the get go.

We went on our anniversary and the service was great! I ordered salmon over pasta and the salmon was excellent! I asked to have the greens removed from my pasta so maybe that’s why there was little flavor in the sauce. The soup was excellent as well. We got a comped dessert as it was our anniversary and it was half priced bottled wine night (Thurs) so that was a plus. I would definitely return as other menu items were also appealing.

As noted in my ranking all was very good. Although one odd thing occurred. I indicated on Open Table that it was a celebration dinner for our wedding anniversary (50). There was no knowledge of this on their part. Upon learning of this they apologized profusely and provided us prosecco for a toast. Also gratis dessert which we shared. Their efforts more than made up for the slight.

We would not go back to this restaurant. My husband's entree of chicken was fairly good, but mine, a reuben sandwich was the worst I have ever had. It tasted okay, but was so tough it was more like jerky! We started with French onion soup, which was pretty bad. It was made of underdone onions in a very weak broth. There were no croutons or cheese--not what you would expect. My husband asked for a glass for his beer, which the waiter forgot. He had to ask again. There was only one other couple in the restaurant. I asked the waiter to pass on my comments to the chef. He said he would, but there was no apology for the glass request nor the mediocre food or service. A proper restaurant would have at least comped the soup.

Despite the mixed reviews, my husband and I decided to give this place a try for our anniversary dinner. The dining room is beautiful, but it is adjacent to the bar, which had a couple televisions going-not ideal for a romantic dinner. I chose the surf & turf-the bacon wrapped filet was delicious, but I was disappointed that my plate had only ONE scallop on it. My husband said his steak was not good quality. The server tried his best, but seemed not to have received adequate training to work in what is portrayed as a fine-dining restaurant. I really wanted to like this place, but the food, service, and ambiance were definitely not worth the price. If you decide to go, try the prix fixe menu (much more reasonably priced).

Had dinner here on a cold Monday night. Food and service were both fantastic. The dining room is right off the hotel lobby, so not great ambiance, made even less interesting because we were the only two people in the room. Curry seafood stew was amazing-lots of crab, shrimp and scallops. Calamari and shrimp appetizer was very good as well. My wife had the stuffed pork tenderloin and enjoyed it. Huge portions. We'll go back- maybe on a weekend when the place is more lively.

We were the only table in the whole restaurant, however, it still took for ever to get our food. Ambiance was very outdated with uncomfortable chairs. Food quality was well below expectations. Overall, very disappointed and will not go back.
