first off this is very trendy restaurant, and many of the people there were (i should say all but me) well dressed. they will still serve you if you are not wearing a suit or dont look like a fashion trendsetter dont worry. your money is still good here,a nd you will need it. the atmosphere is a bit noisy...

A friend recommended that I try out The Bachelor Farmer while I was in town, and I can see why. My husband and I were unable to get a reservation on our first try, but were successful in getting a table the next evening. I immediately loved the décor and atmosphere--a modern and fresh take on Nordic/Scandinavian style. We shared... More

We visited from Florida and my brother lives in the neighborhood so we thought we would give this place a try. We had to wait for a table for an hour and half but the staff more than made up for it. The food was fantastic and the eclectic drinks were wonderful. Try the breakfast whiskey! The food was fantastic... More

What a delight from beginning to end! We were walk ins but , were quickly seated after spending some time at the bar. The bar tender was so accommodating a friendly, which proved to be the case for all wait staff. Some of the best service I've ever had! As I am Scandinavian I found the menu to be a... More

First of all, I have lived in the neighborhood for about a year and been to Marvel Bar a ton (like 1 to 2 times per week) and have had dinner here, but decided to try it for Brunch outside of our normal Smack Shack weekly visit. We heard to get there as close to 10 as possible because seating... More

The Bachelor Farmer is doing what many other restaurants in MN are doing: respecting the ingredients and putting forward a small yet meaningful menu. I had the eggs and summer squash, and was delighted to find so much flavor in some simple like onions. My husband's salmon was cooked perfectly, and this came as a surprise because most restaurants overcook... More

The restaurant brings everything from the farm to the table and it certainly tastes like it. Everything was fresh and well prepared. The vegetables were outstanding. Their appetizer board has some of the best pates that I've ever had - the duck pate is worth 5 stars. Tried the lake herring and enjoyed the light preparation. Another member of the... More

A Monday night dinner at TBF was fresh, flavourful and very enjoyable. The menu offerings were interesting (radish with butter and bread crumbs, for example, popovers with honey butter, buttermilk flan, parsley ice-cream to name a few) and everything really did have the farm-to-table feel. "Rooftop onions" grow on the restaurant's roof! I loved the atmosphere of the place that... More

If you can't get a table in the restaurant consider yourself lucky; the bar is even better. We sat at the thronelike loveseat on a platform at the end of the bar and it felt like our own little candlelit snug. The service was charming and attentive, the atmosphere cozy and chic, the food and drink superb. The toasts are... More

We attended the restaurants third annual "Kraftskiva" in honor of the restaurant's birthday. While the festival was small, we had an enjoyable time trying out some of the restaurants foods. I liked that they had yellow birthday hats for all the guests to wear, which a large portion of people participated. We got to look inside the restaurant, which seemed... More
