Love the vibe here and the food. Our favorite "date night" is dinner at Zeitgeist followed by movie downstairs at the Zinema. I almost always order the coconut curry rice bowl with grilled tofu. Wish I could replicate their recipe at home. Extensive cocktail selection, and always a good display of local art.

The Zeitgeist Arts Cafe is one of our "fancy" destinations. The menu is always intriguing- offering meals that are beautifully presented and delicious. The restaurant is good for small groups or romantic couples dining. Every time we go to Zeitgeist we order the bacon-wrapped dates appetizer, which has been a menu staple for a while. The rest of the menu... More

Great spot to have a bite before or after a movie (Zinema, downstairs). They make one of the best martinis in town. Their burgers are outstanding. Generally, good quality food, appealing, higher end-price wise, and wonderful service.

Was seated at an upstairs table. Atmosphere was nice, but one guy at the table next to us was very loud and boisterous. This detracted from the nice atmosphere. Stuffed bacon wrapped dates and pretzels with dipping sauces were very good appetizers . Lake trout was good. Thai chili bowl with shrimp was very watery and could've used a few... More

We were seated upstairs and it was so relaxing. The menu is more diverse than other area restaurants. I'm a little bit of a foodie and I love the selections. I have had the scallops, the mussels and the homemade pretzels appetizer. The homemade fries with truffle oil are a favorite among my friends. Excellent service. Recommend you check it... More

Menu was pleasantly diverse. Went with a large group and we tried many apps and entrée's. No one was disappointed with their choice. Drink menu was also nice and a great whiskey selection.

Tasty American fare that foodies will enjoy. Inspired recipes with excellent ingredients cooked to perfection. Zeitgeist offers a nice beer and wine list, also. Zeitgeist Arts Cafe is arguably the best restaurant in Duluth.

We frequently go to the Zietgeist Cafe when we visit Duluth. The food is always good, the service superb, atmosphere is lovely and watching the activities on the street is enjoyable. The zinema theatre is topnotch.
