Here, in the heart of downtown St. Paul, you’ll find an upscale, contemporary twist on casual dining. A place where hot, wood-fired pizzas come straight from the brick oven, and craft cocktails come straight from a classically trained mixologist. A place where you can grab a friend, grab a drink, and game on.

    The worst service and meal we have had in a long time. Over 30 min for drinks orders and longer for food which was overcooked and cold by the time it got to the table. And no one (manager or server) seemed care. Won’t return. Give your business to another establishment in the neighborhood.

    Didn't have a server stop by for well over 40 minutes after being seated. I flagged someone down after 25 minutes and got a sarcastic comment indicating that someone would be coming. A group sat next to us and were served immediately and we needed to ask again after that before seeing a server.

    Nothing about this experience will encourage giving it a second chance. Very limited choice of alcohol (don't believe claim for "craft cocktails" ); salmon on salad was old fish, should have never been put on a plate; overcharged for substituting salmon for chicken (should have stayed with the chicken); staff did not seem to care. Ambience is not "retro" - mostly "old." Really, nothing redeeming about the experience, except they had a decent pizza.

    Food was good but service was poor. Had to wait a while to order, and then got the wrong pizza. She apologized, but she should have written my order down instead of “memorizing” it!

    It took half an hour for a server to come to us after we were seated. They also didn’t tell us that their credit card machine has been down for 5 days so were only accepting cash.

    Terrible service….slow. Got there with reservations at 5:15. Waited a good 15 mins before being asked and served a drink. Food did not come until after 6:30. We ultimately left without our meal as we were going to the MN Wild game. Place wasn’t even that busy…horrible service. Won’t go back….very disappointed. Meal wasn’t even that complicated pizza and salad.

    We arrived early for our reservation and were seated right away. The hostess was very friendly and located a table that allowed us to view the large TV screens from several directions. Our waitress was friendly and prompt to greet us at first, however, as the afternoon went on, her service dwindled along with her attitude and friendliness. The food was good and came out quickly and for the amount we got, the value was there. I would definitely recommend this place to friends for a place to go before or after a game or show in St. Paul.

    Choose Rivalhouse because it was close to the Fitzgerald. Meal and selection of beer wine Absolutely run of the mill. Nothing memorable. Would not recommend to friends despite proximity to the Fitzgerald. Go one block further in any direction and there are other options.

    The place was really noisy and there weren't many people there. I think the high ,bare ceilings are the cause. The food was really oily and the fries were over-salted with sea salt . The beer was good though!

    We got there and they told us the main space was bought out for a private event. They moved all reservations up stairs. They assured me their entire menu would stand upstairs. When I went up stairs, they were not ready for guests and were still getting ready. They also showed me the piece of paper that was the menu for the evening, a limited menu. My Party and I decided to eat somewhere else. Very disappointed in the communication.

    The food was very good, and so was the service , but the noise level was high. Voices bouncing off the concrete floors. They have a quiet patio, but it was full. Part of the problem was a bachelor party was happening, while we were there.
