We had a private room upstairs for 15, and everything went perfectly. Appetizers were tasty, entrees were sumptuous and generous (scallops in Minnesota!), and service was prompt and very professional. It was pricey but worth it. When we requested champagne and glasses for a toast, it appeared quickly. The decor was stylish, and everyone there seemed pleased with their meals... More

We ate dinner here on a Friday night and were able to get in at 7:30 without a reservation despite the fact that they were fairly full. First impression was of a hip dining spot with a fun ambience. That proved to be true throughout our meal except for the fact that it was quite raucous at the bar downstairs... More

Zeitgeist is located in downtown Duluth and has a wonderful atmosphere as well as excellent food. Their designer cocktails were fun as well. The selection is large enough so that there is somehting for everyone. Portions are generous. You may not have room for dessert - we didn't!

We recently stopped in after a movie downstairs at Zinema. We had a glass of wine, which the bartender (wish we had gotten his name) helped us order. Perfect choices on his part. We also had a cone of french fries, with truffle oil and aioli sauce. So delicious! We really love this place...the atmostphere, the cleanliness, youthful feeling about... More

I have been going to Zeitgeist about once a week now for either lunch or dinner. Last trip there was yesterday. I'm currently hooked on the seared tuna wrap. It is healthy and really good. I am usually there alone, but the other guests at the bar are nice to chat with if you want and the bartenders are friendly.... More

Myself and my family ate here in August. We were standing outside the restaurant deciding to go in when each person that walked out said you have to eat here the food is so good. We waited just a few minutes to be seated because we wanted to eat upstairs. Our waitress name was Catherine and she was awesome!! She... More

We met friends in Duluth for lunch on a summer Saturday. What a good idea they had. Our usual lunch stop, VaBene, has the view, but this place definitely has the cook! I ordered the salmon hash, partner had Brie/prosciutto sandwich, friends had eggs Benedict. (Brunch till 3 on weekends). Everything was fresh, seasoned right and beautifully plated. I'll attach...

We read the Trip advisor reviews and headed over. Nice modern decor. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive. We arrived for an early dinner since we had been traveling all day and were a little concerned to see the place nearly empty. But couples and families started arriving soon. The atmosphere seems both special and comfortable. My husband liked the rice... More

We love Duluth, and visit often. There are some terrific places to eat, but many of them offer very similar menus. Zeitgeist not only offers other options, but the atmosphere is also more clean and contemporary. The bright upstairs (where almost all diners sit) is comfortable and good for larger groups or families. Some folks dress up, some are in... More

Our waiter was also the evening bar tender so when asked for a recommendation for a before dinner drink, the suggestion was unique and delicious. Homemade ginger beer and native Vodka. I frequently order the coconut rice bowl with the broiled shrimp and am never disappointed. Shrimp is perfect and rice is spicy, but not too spicy. For those with... More
