Still one of my favorite restaurants in Minneapolis. Charming, warm, delicious—on every level.

Noisy to the point conversation was sometimes difficult. Exceptional service in a sharp, sophisticated atmosphere. Food was hit and miss. One entree was excellent, one was fair, however the lamb was tough and not very good. Cocktails were inventive and well made.

Would probably return for drinks but will look elsewhere for a meal.

Service was impeccable! The atmosphere was first class but not snobbish- very down to earth. When our 5 meals arrived there was absolutely no hesitation on which went to whom. My son was in the restroom and they offered to keep his meal warm. I said no, he’ll be right back. It’s obvious the employees are very well trained, authentic & have common sense.

My wife and I had our first dining experience and everything was absolutely perfect. The service was appropriately attentive and the food was perfect. Shaved ham toast was awesome. Walleye was maybe the best I've ever had. And, had one of the best tequila gimlets of my life. So good.

I was intrigued by their reputation for serving excellent, carefully-prepared dishes made with quality ingredients. I was not disappointed. The best thing might have been the micro greens with foie gras. Amazing flavors in all the dishes served. Make sure you start your evening at the Marvel Bar/speakeasy downstairs while you wait for your reservation. Outstanding cocktails in a great intimate atmosphere.

Delightful staff; Drew outstanding behind the bar, and we were served the best meal we've had at a twin cities restaurant in the 25 years we've been living here. Not inexpensive but worth every penny. We'll be back.

The groaning board and cocktails were fantastic, but my duck confit was incredibly salty! I couldn't even finish eating it. The server was kind, but it was a little busy and he didn't ask how the food was.

Loved this place! Visiting for a work conference and it was recommended by many-and it did not disappoint! We sat at the bar and got great recommendations from drinks (the bartender made us a special cocktail!!) and both servers were so helpful in choosing our meals! Everyone including other patrons were so friendly!! I am so glad we could enjoy this awesome place during our brief work trip!! Definitely GO HERE!!

I took my girlfriend here for a date night. Lively ambiance and knowledgeable servers. First time in Minneapolis and this place was recommended by our hotel. The green cabbage salad was our favorite and the goat cheese toast was a big enough portion for 4 people. Everything in our entrees worked very well together and we left very satisfied. It was a very popular place so I would recommend making a reservation.

WOW! is a great word. This was the first opportunity to dine after hearing that their long-time chef had departed. The new chef has stepped into those shoes! From the toasts to dessert, PHENOMENAL! Speaking of dessert, talk about the pièce de le résistance - orange mousse paired with extra-warmed B&B - 5 brandies infused with Benedictine. Le dessert absolu!

After a long wait to attend this restaurant, I came out extremely disappointed. The only thing that was done well at this restaurant was the PR.

From the unfriendly host stand to the server that seemed to want no part of work on a Tuesday night, this was extremely disappointing. After going through the menu, the dishes all seemed to lack flavor. I had heard raved revues about the radishes served and we ended up with what seemed to taste like bagged potato chips and ranch sauce.

I could go on and on about how poor this restaurant was from the lack of seasoning of the food to the lack of any caring in how our experience was, instead I'm just going to continue to spend good money ($200 for 2 people) at better restaurants such as Young Joni and Bardo
