    Everything was amazing! I recommend starting with the seasonal bread. You can not go wrong. We went for brunch, and it did not disappoint. I picked the beef and egg and this was one of the best dishes I’ve had in a long time! The beef was seasoned perfectly and so tender. I cleaned my whole plate! Can not say enough good things. We were sat in the back corner sort of were the staff had to restock or grab things so we had quite a few check in with us. Our server was so sweet I forgot her name. I will be recommending this place from now on. Literally picked because they had a open table opening. So glad we stumbled upon this gem!

    Meal was very good. Had the corny toast to start very tasty, I got the short rib and my wife had the farfelle pasta. Her pasta was very good light and refreshing for a hot summer day. My short rib was insanely tender so I found the rhubarb coleslaw to be very tart and the barbecue sauce to be quite overpowering. It was still pretty good but I think I would order something different next time their Manhattan steak is amazing.

    This was my first time and being new to the city of minneapolis , I have been getting recommendations from people that live here and so far all my food recommendations have been great! Copper Hen was just what I wanted that day. I am now making a Resy for myself and a friend who is visiting in October .

    To sum up my experience, I won’t be rushing back here anytime soon. The food was just average and the facilities inside (bathroom cleanliness) made me question the hygiene employed in the kitchen. If I had used the restroom before ordering and eating, instead of after completing my meal, I would have cancelled my food and left.

    Root vegetable hash was raw and cold and the cold mangled hunk of sausage looked like a leftover off someone else’s plate. Scrambled eggs were hot and good, French toast bread pudding was quite good, so was the Nutty Irishmen drink.

    Very nice surroundings and kind staff. Place was very busy for brunch. We had a group of 5 and food was ok. It was over cooked for quiche, no seasoning on briskets and gravy, the chicken was over cooked and milk gravy was lacking taste. My daughters bagel and lox were excellent. Would I go again yes I think the place has a nice atmosphere and if not slammed with people I hope the food would be much better. It was so loud in the establishment that I could hardly hear waitress. Lot of potential but we were there the wrong day

    One of my favorite spots for brunch. My favorite is the farmer's breakfast because you get a little savory and a little sweet, the perfect combination. Also can never go wrong with bottomless mimosas. Food, service, and atmosphere are all fantastic.

    What a lovely way to get together with friends! We chose to sit outside and enjoy the sunshine & fresh air, and it was a perfect day. Our waitress was knowledgeable and made excellent recommendations, she also brought us something to drink right away and treated us with the kind of care that made us feel welcome & special. The food was to die for, it was absolutely delicious! We have already made another reservation!

    We went for brunch and we’re excited since we heard good things. We were excited for the bottomless mimosas, but this was the highlight of the experience. Sadly, the service was spotty at best and the food was either cold or undercooked. We’re going to come back and try dinner but brunch was definitely underwhelming. While we understand that it was busy, our server often walked away before we were finished talking. We ordered the eggs florentine and farmers brunch and were so excited when the food came out (rather quickly I should add)…If only the food tasted as good as it looked!

    Beautiful simple elegant decor, great service and delicious food. Had our son's birthday dinner here and we had a lot of fun. The only thing I didn't like was my strawberry vanilla cupcake that was dry. This is the second time we ate there and each time the meals were fresh and delicious. Our favorite place to eat in Minneapolis.

    Very cute restaurant and the service was great. Was there for brunch. Everything had way too much cinnamon. I had the farmers breakfast. Asked for over easy eggs, and they were hard. The bread pudding French toast had too much cinnamon and the cream on top had too much cinnamon as well. I may give it another try and order something else. I would be hesitant to recommend.

    The food here was amazing! My daughters and I had the halibut, the honey chicken sandwich and the steak. We also tried the smoked corn bisque and the basket of fries as an appetizer, which was generous in size. My Sunburn cocktail was also delicious. The service was fast and attentive. This place is a gem!

    Avocado toast isn’t really avocado toast. More like pesto on toast with a small side of avocado relish. Which is fine! However that’s not avocado toast. Might want to state that on the menu so you won’t be surprised after you pay $18 for pesto toast.

    The staff were great! Friendly and helpful. :) Unfortunately, a large group was seated adjacent to our table shortly after we commenced our quiet dinner for two. It was distracting and made it difficult for us to hear each other. Strangely for a Friday evening, the restaurant was not very busy. I suppose we could have asked to be moved to a quieter table, but, hey, this is the Midwest! The drinks and dessert were great. The entrees were just okay. They came out very quickly. The chicken pot pie was hot, but the diced rutabaga was undercooked. I might go back for drinks and dessert, but probably not for dinner.

    I came for brunch. I don’t know what my dish was called but it had pork belly and an egg and potatoes. 75% of my food was potatoes. For $20 I think it should’ve had another egg and another strip of pork belly. I couldn’t even eat that many potatoes. Was very disappointed with my food.

    Table for two for Sunday breakfast. The very friendly and professional staff took care of our needs. The cinnamon roll we started with was fantastic and went with a great cup of coffee. The Farmer's Breakfast savory items (vegetable hash, eggs, sausage) were lacking in seasonings, but the brioche french toast was excellent. Our other dish was the eggs Florentine. The house-made English muffin was a bit dense, but this dish had a lot more flavor than the Farmer's breakfast. Overall a pleasurable experience.

    Beautiful restaurant! Great menu, but food was just so-so. Goat cheese gratin was a soup viscosity and lacked complexity in flavors, mac n cheese dry and disappointing, veggies undercooked in the pot pie, and texture was off in the cheesecake. Oneof our party had had the falafel app and a turkey burger and said both were excellent. Service was slow; probably somewhat intentional but we often found ourselves waiting for several minutes to get our server's attention more than once.

    Usually love this place but recently the food has been less than impressive. We sat at our table for 25 minutes before anyone said hi or brought us water. Someone at our table got the wrong food. Love this place but not sure what was going on today.
