Where business people eat

This is the favorite spot for downtown business people to have lunch and then after work drinks. It's run by local family that have three other restaurants and they know the city well.

We've dined her about 3 times and were looking forward to going again. We'd previously dined her during the summer and really liked the food. We loved the spicy seafood pasta dish and when we looked at the menu, it was no longer there. The waitress said they occasionally change their offerings. We each ordered something different and were disappointed.... More

We went here on a whim for lunch and we're very impressed. The atmosphere is cozy and upscale. It has that old time classy cocktail lounge feel. Service was prompt, friendly and knowledgeable. The menu is full of unique versions of regular restaurant fair. My husband had the lunch special, a southwest style Philly steak sandwich with side salad. I... More

Just had a holiday party at Number 4. I always appreciate the quality and creativity of the menu. The full bar and open concept make it a fun place to meet old friends and make new ones. Last night was an appetizer meal. The asparagus fries are to die for.

We were there for dinner. It was really to dark. We had to use phones to read menu... It is not nice. We got nice soups, burgers and made in place guacamole and all of that was tasty and fresh, but... they had a lot of things missing - cola, some beers from cart, some food etc. As I remember...

Had a business dinner here, and could not have been happier. Very eclectic menu with staples and well as more trendy offerings. Do NOT miss the tableside Quacamole, which was some of the best I have ever had. Wedge salad was raved about by the people at the table who ordered it. I had the Thai Coconut Curry Barramundi, which... More

This is probably the premier restaurant in Mankato. But as they say, "In the land of the blind the one-eyed man is king." The restaurant is somberly dark. In the old days restaurants kept their facilities dark to keep the patrons from noticing the dirt. This should not be true in today's world. I like to say positive things about... More

I've eaten at Number 4 only 3 times now, but all 3 times the service was amazing and the food was to die for! I look forward to every chance I get to Mankato, so I can throw in a visit to Number 4! Margarita's were fantastic too!!
