About

The space that Spoon and Stable occupies was an old horse stable where they used to have the horses haul in the material off of the river to the downtown mill factories and warehouses. Built with incredible bones and unforgettable charm, we have taken the space and created something that will be fun, inviting and above all else, comfortable. James Beard award winning Chef Gavin Kaysen leads his team on a nightly basis to bring you casual and delicious food. The menu is designed to please all the senses, and desires one will have when dining out. There are five sections on the menu, “garden,” “chilled,” “grains & pasta,” “sea,” and “land.”

My wife and I have celebrated our last two wedding anniversaries at Spoon and Stable (numbers 32 & 33). Their team (Jeff the general Manager, Adam our server and everyone else) AND their food, are truly second to none. A special shout out to Jeff for getting us in with such short notice. Your leadership shines through the staff and everything else you've built there. What a special place to celebrate ANY occasion. Thank you for another fantastic night at Spoon and Stable. Tom & Kim

We were excited to finally get a reservation and the service from hostess station to servers was fabulous! The finest we've experienced with our server being top notch. Great descriptions of food and on point with when to stop back. The craft cocktails were also divine. The Manhatten was perfection.
The food was good. We had one lamb chop. The bone prob weighed 2 lbs. the meat, 2 oz? We had scallops. Two make a lovely appetizer, not a dinner. Get the jist? We re not buffet goers. We don't need to be over fed, just fed. We don't mind spending $200 for dinner, just tired of walking away from these new trend restaurants ready for dinner.
The energy/vibe of the restaurant was lively and fun which is much appreciated.

Very inventive food preparations. The carrot salad was fabulous. I liked that the wine glass pours were done at the table but the wine prices were ridiculously high.

The atmosphere was certainly high energy. Not the place for a quiet, romantic dinner. The food quality made up for all possible criticisms.

Spoon and Stable was our first dinner stop on our culinary tour of Minneapolis. The decor is lovely and there was a buzzing crowd when we arrived for our Thursday evening reservation. Our waiter, Derek, was super and a perfect balance of attentive and polite while not being over bearing. The bread and butter was delicious - I regretted not saving more of it to sop of the sauce of my entree. I had the Parisian gnocchi which was very good, but not entirely what I expected. My husband had the pot roast which was so tender it actually stained his shirt! We split the crispy potatoes and brussels sprouts sides. The sprouts were very good, but the potatoes were just ok. I had the pumpkin chiboust for dessert which was excellent - A nice blend of seasonal flavors. The petit fours with the check were a nice touch. Finally, since we'd been traveling all day we kept to the non alcoholic drinks which were amazing - It's nice to be able to get a sexy cocktail without alcohol!

I was afraid I would be disappointed after all the buzz and hype over the restaurant. Instead, it exceeded expectations! The food was fabulous--the beet salad and spinach are not to be missed. For the first time ever, I ordered pheasant and it was superb. My date had the pork chop and raved about that as well. Both portions were ample. The crowning glory was dessert--their take on tres leches with multiple textures--outstanding!!

Second visit to Spoon and Stable, and will return when visiting Minneapolis. Knowledgeable and attentive staff, very good food, and ambiance make for a good environment for special occasions and/or a night out for dinner. Cotton candy is a fun and tasty twist.

What a find! This place was excellent. Searched online to find a good place for dinner, and the reviews were good. Staff are outstanding, they are obviously well trained by Chef about the food and menu, which is the sign of a good restaurant. The building itself has been really cleverly converted from a warehouse and it is stunnning. Makes for a really vibrant scene, highly energising and lots of fun...!

Just not my kind of restaurant. I liked the unique menu choices. Did not care for how they were prepared. I don't like my food overseasoned , but they barely added any.

What a nice place for a date. I recommend making a reservation if you want a table. The menu is not huge, but the taste is super great. From the moment you walk into the restaurant you are welcome. There is valet parking or you can take a chance finding street parking. The food was is so tasty and made from local growers. I will definitely recommend this place

I have celiac disease and was so excited to eat real pasta made in house for the first time in 17 years. Their gluten free menu is fantastic.
The bison tartar is outstanding. I would go back just for that. The tartar is definitely five stars.

Over rated in every way. The papardelle pasta was just that...lots of pasta in a salty meat sauce and fried egg on top. The pastries are quite average.

Food was good, but not enough to make up for the lack of service. I don't think our server said more than 2 sentences to us. He wasn't busy or anything, otherwise we would understand.

I was somewhat disappointed in the limited brunch menu. I went with the safe bet, quiche. However, my boyfriend went for the poached eggs in red wine. They were 'over garnished w/ingredients'...Pastry selection was good.

Ask for Jamie to be your server! Then, do have the Burrata and the Duck. If neither of those sound good, she will be right there giving you the most beautiful, full detailed descriptions. Thank you for a lovely meal!!

Loved our food! Smallish portions but that's fine with us. The place was very loud so maybe not an ideal place to go with a group or older people. My mom would have had a hard time hearing anything.

This is our second visit to Spoon & Stable - the food is quite good, the service is always outstanding, and we like the ambiance, despite being cozy/loud.

Despite how good this restaurant is, it's unlikely we'll be back anytime soon. Why? It's honestly overpriced. For dinner including 1-2 drinks per couple, 2 appetizers/salads and 2 entrees, it's not hard to hit $150-200 before the end of the night. I think there are just are just as good restaurants at a friendlier price in the area.

I would recommend a cocktail at the bar and maybe an appetizer before carrying on elsewhere.

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary recently. We felt the waitress' detailed descriptions were overly rehearsed and forced. She was great besides that. The food itself was good but unmemorable with the exception of the bison tartare. The gluten free mushrooms were too salty, a bit dry and plain unremarkable. I did appreciate the variety of the menu. Perhaps we need to try it again....IF WE CAN EVER GET A RESERVATION!!! Our experience didn't validate the difficulty in getting reservation on open table. We like the ambiance too.

Overall had a pleasant time as service was good and overall place seemed bright and comfortable without a stuffy feel. However, food sounded better on the menu than the final product. We shared appetizers and entrees among several diners and overall seemed the chef was trying too hard to produce unusual combinations or throw contrasting flavors together and mostly came out as dishes which weren't composed or really overly pleasing; people arrived hungry and still weren't motivated to finish any of our plates. Rather than complimentary flavors it was more like a happenstance collection on the plate. And particularly, bison is a lean and relative bland meat and this appeared to lack much seasoning or anything on the plate to enhance it; guess if you're looking for bison in its most natural state then would appeal to you. Nothing was below par, just wasn't 'all that'.
