The St Paul Grill has always been my favorite. This time, however, it was not as good as on previous occasions. The crab cakes , which are always wonderful, we’re like warm, and the Brussel sprouts were over cooked and tasteless. The best part of the meal was the wine (excellent) and the apple tart dessert.
Great menu: Dry aged steaks, side(s) - especially the Brussels sprouts, bourbon selection (Weller 12!). Service was strong beginning with their doorman, through hostess, server and cooks. Well done!
Had another amazing meal @ St. Paul Grill but felt I needed to remove a star for not having valet service available unless you were an overnight guest.
My 5 block walk in -5 degree weather (both ways) puts a smudge on any event. I dropped my 3 guests off at the door before the meal, but they insisted on walking with me after the meal. Unfortunately, the hike became more of the conversation than the excellent food and wine.
I've lived in MN pretty much all of my life. But I have traveled. Another favorite is Mama's Fish House in Maui. Remember The Blue Horse on University before it became a bar? That's the only restaurant that could have held a cradle to the Grill. Recently dined at revamped Lexington Restaurant. Just as pricy as Grill, but much snootier, weird room-specific menus, unfriendly waitstaff. Never have I been let down by the Grill. A friend takes me every year for my birthday. I make the reservations, tell them of birthday (or other occasion) and please, God, a BOOTH. I was just there--had the original recipe for a vodka Collins, shrimp cocktail, classic wedge salad, filet, hashed Browns filled with bacon and onions. Oh la la. Gratis decadent chocolate mini tart. Way too chocolately for me. My only suggestion would be a second option. But hey, it's free. I give the Grill 5 stars without fail. I once hosted a New Years Eve party with a huge window view of the park with its holiday lighting. Just a gem of a place all around.
Great food and service. Speedy but worth the cost.
Had lunch. Prompt service, waiter was attentive, not overbearing. Food was delicious club sandwich and Capitol burger. Large portions. Had to take home leftovers.
Pricey. Worth it though. Definitely will return
The chicken pot pie was delicious as Channel 4 claimed, Best in MN
Outstanding in every way. Great food, great service, and a wonderful experience.
We had excellent service and enjoyed our meal. There were few vegetarian options for my husband but he was able to find side dishes that met his needs. My chicken pot pie was delicious as was the wild rice soup. The carrot cake amazing! We’ll be back!
Always a great experience at the Grill. We save it for special occasions - as we know it will always be perfect food and wonderful service as well as an amazing venue.
