Honestly I felt it was over rated. I booked it because I had never been there & wanted to bring my boyfriend to a Fabulous place, I looked at the reviews, and I booked it. We both were disappointed in the food, I felt the tenderloin was extremely rare ( med-rare was ordered) It had to be sent back, It was cold also.
I had the Pork chop which was again ok, nothing over the top. The ambiance was good & We loved the flower gardens outside. Sorry I would not go back, Maybe to the bar, Wes knew his bourbons! My boyfriend liked that!

Great food and service. Delicious as always, the St. Paul grill is a definite Twin Cities favorite. We came to celebrate a birthday and the complimentary dessert cake was delicious. Everything made the dinner a meal to remember.

It had been a couple of years since I dined here, because I did not have a good experience then. Since we were going to the Ordway, however, we decided to give it another try, and I'm glad we did. Our dinner was excellent, and the service was just as good. The show was wonderful too, so it was a memorable evening.

Service was perfect. I ordered the Halibut special and didn't think it was anything special. Prices had escalated quite a bit since the last time we were there. My son wanted the NY Strip, but it was $64 so he ordered something else.

The place was nice, great drinks, hot cheese appetizer was really good but overall I thought the food was just ok. My husband had the scallops and they were amazing. The appetizer hot shrimp were a bit cold. It was a nice evening but for the money, I’d choose somewhere else.

My special occasion was attending The Who concert with dinner prior to the concert. My reservation was for 6:00 pm and the concert was at 7:30 pm. Upon arrival, I shared with the hostess we were going to the concert. I shared with our server that we were going to the concert and asked her to please tell us if anything we were ordering would delay our timely departure for the concert. If that was the case, we would order something different so we would stay on track time wise for the concert. Our food arrived at our table at 7:25 pm or 5 minutes before the concert was starting. My entree was cold rather than hot. I did not send it back because it had already taken too long to get my food. The server apologized for the delay and brought us a dessert to make amends. Unfortunately, being given more food which would delay us even more was not a way to make me feel better about my dining experience. Rather, it made me more angry.

I loved St Paul Grill - the helpings were large from my viewpoint so my husband and I split. The ice cream Sunday was too big. Everything was good and we look forward to another visit

We booked for our 45th anniversary and noted that in the reservation for an early - 6:00 dinner. Our table was for two and in a service area with lots of traffic. No ambiance and we were both disappointed. We were set to order a dessert when up pops a comp one = which was fine but not what we wanted. Maybe everyone was there for an occasion - so that is the way it works. The halibut special was great; calamari average. I think I will stick to popping in to the bar area and skip reservations as it doesn't seem to matter.

I wanted to take my guest to an iconic Saint Paul restaurant for lunch. The Saint Paul Hotel was perfect. Once Shirley, our server heRd my guest was from out of town she was delightful. A perfect end to my guests visit.

Service was excellent, the wait staff was very attentive and accommodating. However, the soups, we tried different ones, were all too salty, although the ingredients were good. good place for lunch and business meetings. The dessert portions are all too big. For health conscious consumers, maybe this established restaurant should change their way of doing things.

Steak was disappointing. It was not tender. When you pay 40 - 50 dollars for a steak, it should provide good dining experience.

Our server (I believe his name was Paul) was excellent. The lady who cleared and help with anything else was GREAT, especially when one person tipped their wine glass. She was there in about 5 seconds. The food was outstanding. We were celebrating one couple’s anniversary and the restaurant provided a special desert for them. The entire evening was wonderful!
