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.

By any means, I do not mean this as a bad review whatsoever. This place was good. The only downside, is I did think it was a little over priced. The presentation was good, the staff was kind, the local beer on tap was my favorite - the taste of the food, was pretty average. Being a hotel concierge from... More

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...
