Woolley's Bar is Not in Line with the Quality of the Hotel

Woolley's Restaurant's Corner Bar is a mediocre bar in a very nice hotel. Due to negative double-digit temperatures, we visited the bar and restaurant several times on a recent trip. The food was fair to middling and the service was much too slow. The first night of our stay, my friend and I both... read more

Our family planned a surprise birthday party during the Sunday brunch for a "new adult" (21) and it was so very nice. Nice table location by grand piano, superb attention from our waiter- Brad. The champagne and mimosas were never empty, the food was tasty and filling. The children in the group had plenty to choose from. The adults had... More

Our server, Jesse, was excellent. The salad bar, soup, and pasta were wonderful, and the atmosphere was elegant but not stuffy.

Previously we enjoyed dining here in the evening so when I noticed an ad for brunch, I looked for reviews on trip advisor. The reviews were largely positive and we tried the brunch today. Had the exact opposite experience. At 12:30 p.m, no prime rib, they were hustling to grill steaks as an alternative. Serving stations for salmon, pasta, waffles... More

I had a fantastic BOGO coupon--$24.95 for brunch and the second person free. The food options were great (although I would have expected better Danishes, they looked like something out of a variety pack from a grocery store). Everyone enjoyed themselves. Woolley's had a row of breakfast options, lunch options and dessert. It was well laid out. Prime Rib was... More

The Embassy Suites chain has several locations which include a Ruth Chris restaurant. Woolley's is trying to do the same...but falls short. As far as hotel restaurants is concerned it does a good job, but in all fairness the bar is set pretty low there. When comparing with Ruth Chris...it is a different ball game. Service was fine, food...not so... More

Last time I was there (Christmas Eve) the prime rib was excellent and so was the service. Long time wait staff usually means great service. Highly recommended!

My husband and I ate at Woolleys which is beautifully situated in the lobby of the Embassy Suites near the St. Paul airport. He had a $35 steak and I had $26 salmon. The steak was very good and salmon was small and just slightly overcooked at the ends but still tasty. I had their signature dessert which was strawberries... More

Was in Minneapolis on business and staying at the Embassy Suites where this restaurant is located. I had dinner at the bar one evening and was pleasantly surprised by the food. I had the pasta vodka and it was very good. The sauce had a kick to it, but I really liked it.

The atmosphere was good, the food was OK but the service we received was terrible. Ordering a wine when your food is delivered and not getting it until you finish your meal is not expected at a pricey, classy restaurant.
