I got the Korean BBQ Bowl and the Loop Breakfast Sandwich. The Korean BBQ Bowl was delicious and packed with heat(spice) just the way I like it! The Loop breakfast sandwich was actually two separate sandwiches with two sides overcooked dry hash-browns. It is not noted on the menu that you get two muffin sandwiches with sausage and egg and cheese as well as two sides of hash-browns. Our server only came by to check on us ce during our entire meal.

It was December and they had set up a buffet for an office party near our table. Because of that and that it was uncommonly busy that night, we found the restaurant noisier than usual. Still, the food and service were excellent.

It was ok, we had 2 small children so would have preferred a table to a booth but none were available.

First-timer, here. Due to patronage at other WE restaurants, I wasn't expecting much. I was pleasantly surprised. All 5 of us really enjoyed our food, the service was great and there was a nice ambiance. We'll definitely return!

Very loud, expensive and poor decisions in plating.

The restaurant is mostly hard surfaces so all sound is continually bouncing back and forth with nothing to absorb it. Very loud overall. The menu has some nice offerings all though the entire list of appetizers are priced equally to the entrees.

I ordered the Grilled Chicken Gyro. It arrived and looked weathered. The plate itself was hot, usually not a problem. However, I ordered a side Caesar Salad to go with my Gyro. Why you would put a cold salad on a hot plate makes no sense. In addition, every component in the Gyro was hot. Gladly the chicken, but the lettuce, the onions, the radish, and the tzatziki sauce. The tzatziki sauce looked melted.

I asked for a side of tzatziki hoping that a fresh, cold dollop could save the sandwich. The sauce showed up at the table 7 minutes after the food was dropped off. When it arrived it was the sorriest example of tzatziki I have ever experienced. The closest thing I could compare it to would be extra thick, creamy Italian salad dressing.

My guess is the sandwich, salad and plate sat under a heat lamp prior to delivery. Ruined the meal.

Salmon burger was reported as very good. Flatbread pizza was poor - not very tasty at all & too dry. Cajun fettuccini Alfredo was not spicy at all unfortunately- tasted ok, just bland.

Our first time at The Loop and we would go again. Our party of three shared the cinnamon rolls and ordered from the brunch menu. We enjoyed our choices, the service was helpful and the surroundings were pleasant.

We were warmly greeted by the host and we chose to sit at the bar as we usually prefer. There Brent and Liz both greeted us with a hello and a smile. I had the poke salad and the Brussel sprouts. They were awesome. All evening Liz, Brent and eventually Austin when he arrived were attentive and had a great rapport with everyone at the bar. The food is always great but it is the service we get that brings us back.

While it’s not a knock you out best food you’ll ever have restaurant it is affordable with good drink variety and something on the menu for everyone. Worth checking out if you’ve got time to kill before a movie nearby.

Delicious food.

Recommendation: Not allowing people to smoke on the patio. I know it's outside, but if people want to enjoy the fresh air and nice weather, and people are smoking at the next table, it definitely makes it less appetizing.

I went to The Loop with a friend for brunch, we travel all over the cities for brunch and it’s nice that places are popping up outside the downtowns. The ordered the ham and mushroom hash which was fine, nothing amazing but made like I could make at home. We also had the mini cinnamon roll which in my opinion had too much frosting and not enough cinnamon. But the server was great and attentive, the mimosas were delicious and I appreciated a place in St Louis Park as opposed to driving downtown. 4/5 stars.

Menu item need to have better descriptions, especially when it come to ingredients and spice level.
Server was clueless
