WOW, this was a fun surprise. We wanted a bite to eat before heading home, and this was super fast and so nice. I had the quinoa roasted veggy salad, and a glass a wine. It was quiet, and so convenient.

We ate here after visiting Mall of America to shop at Nordstrom's, a treat not available to us locally. Everything we ordered was freshly prepared, flavorful, and in many cases, organic. Even the chicken fingers for our toddler were delicious! The service was a little slow and a bit understaffed, hence the 4/5 rating, but it was nonetheless a delightful... More

My friend and I actually ate at the Cafe in the Mall of America and the new location in Ridgedale. Both were not so great. The MOA location is like a fast food restaurant except after you order, they bring the food to your table. I had the Oriental Chicken salad. Have to say, Applebee's is much better.The servers apron... More

It's not often that you enjoy every morsel of your meal, but that was my experience. I had the shrimp & asparagus risotto and the shrimp were abundant, the asparagus cooked to perfection and the rice was creamy and flavorful. The service was friendly and the restaurant is quiet and peaceful. A nice break from the busy mall.

The restaurants in the mall are quite busy during prime times, but usually if you go here during peak hours there is little or no wait to sit down. They have fabulous desserts too!

I usually enjoy Nordstrom, quiet and delicious, but not today. First things first... the food never disappoints. I had the cilantro lime chicken salad and it is incredible. Seriously, try it!! The service though.... I'm not sure what actually happened. Tim was our server. He presented drinks then entrees... then promptly parked himself at a table (not assigned to him)... More

The Mall is a busy place, and Nordstrom provides a sophisticated retreat, from the maddening crowd. A student of people, or just an ardent people-watcher, will enjoy the location of this cafe.

This is truly the hidden gem at the Mall of America, it is tucked away on the third floor of Nordstroms, and the food is really good, nicely presented and served by a very professional staff. The salads are to die for and they poor the best drip coffee in the entire mall if not most of the MSP area.... More

I have eaten here many times and find consistent good food and service. Bathrooms are the best for MOA. Salads, flatbread pizzas and soup are all recommended. The Salads are the best items. Yesterday we had the shrimp salad and the cilantro lime chicken. Both were very good! You place an order as you enter, select a table and your... More
