Locals recommended this restaurant in the Embassy Suites Airport. I had a Bison Burger for Lunch - had to have been the BEST Bison Burger I;ve ever had. Thick, Moist, no game taste. Had Dinner at a conference- Prime Rib from the Buffet - Again, Excellent - Medium rare, lots of flavor. I can see why this restaurant was rated... More

The restaurant is inside the Embassy Suites Minneapolis Airport. The setting in the atrium is very attractive. Shawn, our waiter, came promptly and took drink orders and left us with menus. He explained the specials. He returned with the drinks and was ready to take orders, but as we were visiting, we needed more time He returned twice more before... More

There for a business lunch. Great seating in the open area. However, the fire alarm testing that continued for most of our lunch (i.e. 30+ minutes) almost drove us into seizures. When we asked about it, we received a "well..... yes, they are testing the alarm...." Food was good, and was quickly served by someone other than our server, no... More

We came in pretty late, after 8pm, six of us. No reservation, no problem. Had the grilled salad...excellent. Had the filet mignon, medium rare -- not the best I've ever had (that distinction goes to Boulevard in San Francisco), but still excellent. Impeccable, attentive service. Would go back.

I can't tell you how great my experience was, but please bear with me while I try. I made reservations through OpenTable for a later evening dinner for two. It was my fiancee's and my anniversary and I wanted to treat her to a nice dinner. We were seated in the gazebo which is such a beautiful place for a... More

Woolley's is known for their wonderful steaks, but we aren't red meat eaters and we still had a delicious meal. They had 4 fish preparations that looked good enough that I had a hard time deciding. I had grilled walleye, which they were so accommodating as to serve me with a different preparation since I was allergic to the preparation... More

We had a great coupon ($10 off for every $30 spent, with no alcohol restriction) for Woolley's so decided it had been too long since we treated ourselves. The menu has changed from a standard, soup or salad, choice of potato, veggie included place to more of an a la carte locale. Our waiter tried to tell us the prices... More

Restaurant is inside the Embassy Suites Hotel near the Mall of America in Bloomington and is like in a garden setting....very cute. We had reservations and when we checked in, we were brought to our table right away. Within a minute of us sitting down, our wait person brought us the menu and drinks. Bread and creamy butter was served... More

Embassy suites in Bloomington has a chic to get great restaurant (Woolley's and Chez Daniel - which I learned is closing to be replaced by a gigantic bar) Prices are a little bit on the high side but still very competitive with the Downtown prices. Food and services are great no surprise there.

I have eaten here twice and both times were excellent. Well worth the price. The salmon was cooked to perfection and the desserts were sublime. We had the bread pudding and it was almost as good as my home made.
