Friends took us to this restaurant and it was very good. The ambiance (old warehouse); service (Charlie) and the food were outstanding. It is an enjoyable place, a bit loud; however, enjoyable. It is a few blocks from the Twins stadium. Depending on the time of day, I'd advise a cab if you are... read more

I'm most grateful for their accommodating the 9 of us in a nice corner of the dining room! And the superb service with excellent food as we ordered across their food and drink menus. The lamb dish I ordered was a little smaller than I'd imagined but it was delicious. The fish my nearest friend had was a tad over-cooked.... More

A friend and I went for brunch on a Sunday morning. While they don't open until 10 a.m. for Sunday brunch, there was no wait the morning I went. I'm more of an early bird, so opening at 10 is a bit later than I prefer. The menu had many selections, some of which we asked more detail about, and... More

We couldn't have been luckier meandering into this place last Friday night! We were fortunate to get right in at their "walk-in" table and couldn't have been happier. Funky cocktails, truly unique, fresh ingredients combined for a lovely evening. The only quirk being we received our meals before we could even order wine. Guessing this is how they turn their...

Wonderful meal and service. 3 of us visited on a Thursday evening. I highly recommend making reservations. The menu selection is small but - each very, very good. I understand that they change the menu frequently - however I have only been here once so cannot attest to this. I ordered halibut and it was seriously the best white fish... More

Two local foodies with discerning guests from Miami and NYC had a delightful dinner. the overall favorite included the toast plate that was shared by all (we loved the variety of savory options to accompany our toast. Appetizers were too small to enjoy for out liking. Entrees were all incredible and satisfying. Dessert ---too rich, but the complementary ginger cookies... More

The menus rotate and the selection was very nice the day that we were there. Pricing is a bit upscale, but the food was fresh and well prepared. They have a rolling cart with baked goods and bubblies.

The is restaurant has received a huge amount of press and fanfare, no doubt because of the prominence of the owners (sons of the Governor). The word on the street is that reservations must be made weeks in advance. Not so. We made same day dinner reservations for seven people. One wonders, however, after dining there, what all the fuss... More
