We just had lunch at New Scenic Café and it was fantastic. It's just about a 20 minute drive from downtown Duluth, with a beautiful overlook on Lake Superior. Added to that, we had a truly delicious meal: We started with coffee, the tuna tacos, which come with a Thai-style slaw, and the fried goat cheese appetizer with fresh bread... More

Every time we go to Duluth we make time to have dinner at the New Scenic. They never fail to exceed our expectations. This time I had a ribeye with onions and arugula. It was great. I wanted a wine from languedoc which they were out of. The server suggested a Rhone that what delightful. I'll go back again.

Recently had dinner there. Was so good. Always love the tuna taco appetizer. Both entrees were superb and the pie for dessert was perfect as always. Highly recommend this restaurant!!

Haven’t been there for a while… mistake.. mine.. As always the best in Duluth. The tuna tacos are the best… usually available and non-better anywhere! We each had a special and both were exceptional. We never order dessert except at the Scenic. It is always well worth it… [calories] When in Duluth nothing ever tops the Scenic.

This is our third meal at the Scenic Cafe, and they have yet to disappoint. This is a great option for someone looking for a meal with someone special. Expect to pay $30-$70 per person depending on if you get app/wine/dessert with your meal

Very interesting menu of unique items. We really enjoyed the salad with beets. Both ordered sandwiches, one prime rib and one grilled cheese. I was saddened by the limited number of choices, but the choices were all really interesting and prepared in a unique way.

I went with my boyfriend and we thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The portions were small, but the food was so tasty it didn't matter. It was a really fancy place to eat, and it was a great place to get dressed up for. Service was good as well and desert was delicious. I would go back again.

Great food! Fresh ingredients!! The atmosphere was rustic, and comfortable. It is a little out of the way from the main Downtown Duluth area, but worth it. This is one restaurant that has maintained it's integrity of the year's and even improved! Best place for a Soup & Salad.

We stop by New Scenic Cafe for lunch everytime we head up north. We love the unique flavors especially in their appetizer dishes - the roasted Brussels sprouts salad and the curry mussels are our favorites. We have also tried several of their daily special sandwiches. Yum! Our six-year-old loved it too!

We had a party of 10. NIce table -half of us had a pretty sunset view of the lake. Rustic, warm atomosphere. Very nice attentive, knowledgable server. We knew the prices entree prices were very high ahead of time. The pheasant sounded delicious when described but it just was not wonderful. I would have preferred it much more tender and... More
