It was such a pleasure to dine at New Scenic Cafe. From start to finish, the service and food was one of the best dining experiences.

We were on our way back down from a trip up to Grand Marais and had found this restaurant on Tripadvisor so decided to give it a go. It all started really well - our glasses of wine were really nice and the starter we chose to share (tacos with tuna and avocado) was substantial and delicious. It was when... More

Lunch (& dinner because the 4 of us were so full!) at New Scenic Cafe along the North Shore of Lake Superior between Duluth and Two Harbors. A cozy building nestled behind a gorgeous garden; filled with herbs, vegetables and fragrant flowers. We started with seared halloumi cheese covered with berries, stone fruit, mint, basil and agave nectar. Shared the... More

My husband and I had a very good dinner at New Scenic Cafe last week with some family members who live in the area. We were there on a Wednesday evening, when wine is 1/2 price. We had a reservation, which was good since they were very busy. It was a lovely evening, and when we arrived, we spent some... More

My wife and I celebrated our Anniversary at the New Scenic Cafe. The wonderful thing about the restaurant was, of course, the food. I had the beef tenderloin and my wife had the Sea Bass (the special for the day). My beef was cooked perfectly (medium rare). Not only is the food great, it is also creative in presentation and...

We always get here when we visit. Great staff, fantastic food. The décor is cozy, nothing special - and the tables are close, which is fun - as chefs we like to listen to what everyone has to say. The service during lunch (August 2013) wasn't as up to par as we are used to as far as knowledge, but,... More

Went on Wednesday with a co-worker, it was packed 30 minutes for a table. We ended up getting it to to. Went outside because the view and night were so nice. I highly recommend the Tuna Tacos.

All three of us were extremely disappointed in this restaurant. Service was very poor. Very expensive. Food was terrible. My husband ordered some type of a smoked salmon dish which was served raw inside. When we questioned the server, she indicated it is served medium to medium rare. No apologies were offered. Neither management nor the chef came to the... More

We visited this restaurant based on high recommendations from friends. We arrived between the "typical hours" of lunch and dinner so our seating was prompt, (Our friends had warned us to expect a wait but assured us it was worth it.) Our meal began with curried blue mussels and the special ahi tuna tacos and both were well prepared and... More
