    Ate on the patio, restaurant felt cold and uninviting. Food is good, flat breads and Mediterranean appetizer was delicious. Fun cocktails. Great staff, efficient and helpful.

    An oasis in the hectic city. Service was excellent - attentive, friendly but not overwhelming. Appetizer (med duo) was excellent. Steak, walleye and Nashville chicken sandwich all clicked with us. Certainly on our rotation from now on - just a few blocks from the Mississippi.

    We picked here has a celebration dinner. We chose here because of the great reviews. The great things: service was very great and it is a beautiful space (inside a hotel lobby). The not great things the food. It was really sub par. Food came out cold, has no taste and was just not great. We ended up just taking our food home and giving to our dogs.

    We (almost) had the place to ourselves for a Monday night celebration of our U MN - Carlson graduate. The drinks were gorgeous, the food presentation was lovely, and tastiness was spot on. Our server was attentive but not lurking, and we all found the decor of the restaurant and hotel divine. They helped make the night special!

    We came with no expectations and were thoroughly impressed with the setting, staff, and food! We loved the roomy booth, the best wild rice soup I think I have ever had, and no loud music so we could visit with our party of 4. It was a short walk to the Guthrie and we were able to leave our car parked at restaurant with the voucher for parking. Wow!

    A must try if you are downtown Mpls. We had a homemade appetizer pizza that I would get over and over again. With a glass of red wine (Malbec) - a perfect time right before a concert. Waitress was all smiles and checked on us NOT too much. We sat away from the bar near the large fireplace and Christmas tree. I will do this again!

    Our waitress was very attentive she even kept our water glasses full, despite us drinking a lot of water. The menu was small, but accommodated our group well, including gluten free options. Good was perfectly cooked, and the order was 100% correct (even down to the side of BBQ sauce.). A bit loud, but typical for a bar/grill environment. We'd return!

    Prior to the pandemic, wonderful menu and service. They still are in lock down mode, not just poor night. Menu extremely limited. Appatisers, salmon entry and then choice of 5 sandwhiches. The bar tender was our one and only server in a large bar area. The place also had an in person gala emptying out, they did not plan on for servers.

    Made a reservation for a 10 year anniversary months in advance at 10pm for late dinner and cocktails. Got a voicemail the DAY OF to say there kitchen closed at 9:30 and that we would need to come in early if we wanted to eat. When I called back at 8pm to confirm they could still seat us if we came at 9:30 someone else said the VM didn't matter because they were so busy they closed the kitchen even earlier. No one showed any concern. No one offered any apology. As a Marriott member and loyalist I don't expect this poor of treatment and disrespect from a restraunt associated with their hotel. We were not able to have dinner in the city as everything else was booked solid and we couldn't find other options after being turned away last minute. We were traveling from Maryland and completely missed out on that experience for our first time visiting the city.
