Had reservations I made with OpenTable. When we got to the restaurant, was told I didn't have reservations but would seat us somewhere. The place was pretty much empty. Put us on a back round table. Waitress was slow, at taking orders bringing out food, refilling water, getting drinks. They also didn't have some regular drinks and items on the menu.

While the food and service was good, the restaurant itself was old and in disrepair. The bathroom was really tore up and not very clean. The furniture in the dining room was old and the wood was all chipped up. Old nasty ceiling tiles and power cords hanging from them made it look like everything had a quick fix done and still waiting on the actual repair. I ordered jasmine tea, but they only had 2 teapots and one had just broke, so no tea for me. I'm sure the dollar store would have a few they could get. Since everything I could see was not very clean, I wonder what state the kitchen was in! Yikes!

Slow service that was anything but attentive. Some of the food was tasty, but a lot of it was pretty average. Live music on the weekends, but too loud if you're not in the music room. Old Senor Wongs that is still Senor Wongs with a new name. Place feels old and uncared for.

We went to SW Craft Bar on a whim. It is in kind of an odd location. The food was good, although not great. However, the service was very attentive and the cocktails were quite tasty. If you find your self in downtown St. Paul, I'd recommend checking it out. I don't know that I'd make a special trip.

 (Minneapolis)·Dined on February 13, 2016

Synopsis: food is bland and unimpressive. Good atmosphere and drinks. More of a HH place rather than a restaurant.
Details: Their description states that it's a fusion of Latin and Asian foods but I feel that description is misleading. I was disappointed because they offer Latin dishes and Asian dishes separately as opposed to actually fusing the separate flavors into a single dish. I ordered the enchilada entree and it was super bland. I don't recommend it at all. I also ordered a side of cilantro lime rice and the flavor was good but I could tell it had been sitting under a heating lamp for a bit.

My wife and I were looking for new restaurants and had never heard of sw craft. It wasn't until we pulled up that we realized that Senor Wong's changed its name.
Still about the same quality. Not great, but not bad.
