The service was wonderful, and I am very appreciative that we requested a quiet space, if available, and were seated in an area that was relatively private and very conducive to conversation among our group.

We had a party of 3 for New Years Eve and we all loved it. All the dishes we had were delicious and it's so fun to look at each room decorated as a section of a newspaper! It was a bit loud in the Sports section room but we could still talk. Overall, a great experience!

Server was a little slow, food was pretty good, and we were promptly seated.

The only issue regarded our seating. I arrived before the rest of the party and was sat at a table. I waited for 15 minutes only to find that the rest of my party was sat at another table in a different area. They asked for my name when they arrived and were told I hadn’t arrived yet. A little awkward when I had to move tables and notify my server what was going on. It wasn’t even busy in there so not sure why the mix up occurred.

We had a group of 12 dining before a concert. The staff was very helpful and attentive to getting us served and out the door on time. Our waitress was great. She split up the bill perfectly so that the checkout was fast. The food and drinks were great and we thought it was priced right. We will definitely come back when we have more time to enjoy the ambiance.

We had dinner before a nite at the Orpheum. The food was good and the service was great. My husband was able to glance at the TVs to keep up on his Fantasy Football:) I had the meatloaf sampler and it was very yummy. 3 different kinds of meatloaf with a different side dish to go with each one. The nite was cold and windy so it was perfect comfort food for the weather.

Waited an hour for our food and was given an inadequate excuse of busy. We were a large party and other large parties received food and check in a timely manner. When food arrived, it was cold.

I’m not sure if The News Room was busier than anticipated tonight but we arrived early and had to wait for our reservation to be ready while others walked in without reservations and were seated ahead of us. The service was really slow without acknowledgement and three of our four meals were over cooked. We’ve been here before with better experiences and hoping tonight was not the norm going forward.

One of the best happy hours I’ve seen in MPLs, and I look.
