We had an excellent meal! Everything we had was made from scratch. The Ricotta gnocchi was great as was the burger my husband had and the cheesecake with rum raisin Nutella sauce! We will definitely stop in again. Our waiter (David) was excellent and humorous as well. Our only issue was that it is very open so it is very noisy except for the bar area that is walled off. So if you have issues with hearing people in noisy places, this would be a difficult place to have a private, quiet conversation.

The menu was creative and our meals were very good. There were limited choices because of the coming change in the menu, and most of the beer choices were very dark. The clever use of the bank vault and napkin rings that were money markers were a great way to give credit to the past use of the building as a bank.

It's been about a year since my last visit to The Mint and myself and my boyfriend were highly disappointed. Several things on the seasonal menu were crossed off so and there were even food items on the menu that weren't crossed off but weren't available when we tried to order them. Menu selection was lacking. We were there for a nice dinner with friends from out of town and ended up spending $90 on 4 sandwiches accompanied by french fries or tater tots and an appetizer. Ketchup was the only accompaniment to the tots and fries as there was no ranch dressing or malt vinegar. Our waiter offered a really delicious sounding aoli, but they no longer make that any more either so hearing about it was quite the tease. I would no longer recommend this as a dinner spot.

This place has changed and is now meh. They’ve gotten rid of a lot of beers on the menu that once drew me here. The desserts are tiny. They charge for hot sauce (because they make their own? The logic eludes me) which might be okay if it actually tasted good or if they offered at least another hot sauce that was made elsewhere free of charge. And when I asked for ketchup for my tots, they gave less than a tablespoon.
The server was a bit defensive. Odd. And when asked about the yummy local sourdough, the only information he could give was that it was local. Hahah. Okay, thanks.

Portions are small for the price (a sandwich the size of a kid’s sandwich for $14?) draft beers for $7, what’s with the NYC price? Womp womp
The tots are good. But they are deep fried so I’m not impressed.

A lot of major changes all to save a buck but to the detriment of the customer.
Not returning.

The menu is ... What you might get if you combined several other restaurants' menus together in a blender, added a few random ingredients for no reason other than to feel edgy and cool, and then spilled them all randomly onto the page. The space is noisy and crowded and the staff on our visit was at turns rude, incompetent, or so overwhelmingly pretentious and ingratiating that it was barely tolerable. Unless you can't make tater tots at home ... Pass on this one.

Our table wasn't ready when we got there so we ended up sitting at the bar but it worked out well for us because we liked the atmosphere in the bar better. Nice dim lighting in there. Excellent service, drinks and food.

First time to the Mint. The server was great. Had an octopus appetizer which was not great. Was going there for jambalaya though the menu I saw online was not the correct one. I opted for the grass fed cheeseburger for $14. I must say that was excellent it was a large burger so the price was good for a restaurant. I would go back for the burger

The appetizer was fine. It was an octopus soup. The octupos texture was good. I got some sort of roast beef ramen thing for dinner. It had no flavour except for the horseradish you could optionally add in. The warm gerkin pickles floating in the mixture were an odd touch.

Trendy style in former bank building. Attractive bar. Attentive service. Classic comfort food with a gourmet twist. Excellent macaroni and cheese. Interesting cocktails. The fried chicken was mouth-watering. The biscuits were tough and less delicious than hoped, which was mildly disappointing, though they were cheesy.

We came to The Mint for the first time 10/31/17 to celebrate my retirement. We came back a week later as a "Thank You" for the two people who made my business possible. Both times, David was our server. Very friendly and personable yet professional. Knowledgeable of what was in the various dishes. The food was EXCELLENT. Probably one of the best steaks I have had both in taste and tenderness. Desserts are small which suited us after a healthy salad and meal. I will continue to recommend The Mint as a fine dining experience.

After a long week, it was a great spot to head out to on a date The overall experience proved to be our best date in months. The fun hot spot showcases the amazing way re-purposing old buildings leads to eclectic dining with a flare. We began with the cheese appetizer and it was made as mozzarella should be. We followed it up with meals that appealed to each of us. I was thrilled to have amazing vegetarian options. I would highly recommend theMINT for your next date night out!

Wow! We stopped in based on online reviews while visiting our daughter at college for the weekend. All three of us thought it was one of the best gastropubs we've ever been to. The menu and food are creative and outstandingly delicious. The chef's passion for food and creating wonderful dishes was evident in everything we tried. Try everything....nothing disappointed, including our server, Devin, who obviously shares the chef's passion for food and for making sure his patrons have a fabulous dining experience. We will definitely be back.

TheMINT is one of my favorite Bethlehem eateries, and this was a nice chance to try out the new menu. While the meat-eaters in our group were thrilled with their steak and burger, our vegetarian friend had to send back the beet patty she originally ordered and go with their chickpea sandwich instead. But overall, just as good as ever!
