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

My husband and I went for dinner and a movie at Zeitgeist and Zinema 2. I called ahead for a reservation, and the host advised us how much time to allow given the show time, which was quite helpful. We had plenty of time to enjoy our dinner. Both meals were nicely presented, flavorful, and satisfying. I had the gnocchi,... More

I was just here on Business eating solo at the bar. Felt comfortable with a huge selection of drinks and a great menu. I had the THAI CHILI BOWL with tofu – they made it with the right amount of heat! A little different menu with some healthy options which is always a big plus.

The restaurant itself is located on two levels. We were on the mezzanine level, where the noise was quite deafening. One strike. We had a party of nine, and the table adjacent to ours was so close that our waiter could not get near most of the people in our party. Most of the food and drinks had to be... More

I hate to write a bad review on a place, but Zeitgeist Cafe was lousy. The night started off at around nine PM for us. They are open until 11 PM, I asked the Host who was about to seat us by the three tables downstairs (next to the bar) if we could dine in the dining room upstairs. She... More

We visited Zeitgeist Arts Cafe for cocktails. They had an impressive bar and a cocktail menu of all the classics made properly! Between us, we ordered a Gin Fizz, Corpse Reviver, Sidecar, and Manhattan and enjoyed each one. They dry-shook the gin fizz for fantastic results. The bartenders hand-squeeze juices for each of their drinks individually. We sat at the... More

5 of us had dinner at Zeitgeist on a Friday night. Friendly service, an interesting and varied menu. Not too expensive. The mussels in a curried coconut milk broth were great. Loved the grilled romaine salad! It was huge and easy to share. The rice curry dishes went over well, as did the pork chop with grilled polenta. Only misstep... More
