Interesting food, good drinks, and nice happy hour.

I've been here a few times, both times sitting outside on the patio area. It's not decorative but it's nice enough, could use a few more umbrellas, as the sun is very strong in the late afternoon/evening. Small happy hour menu, good variety. I had the miniature burger, the kung pao fries, and the... read more

We are establishing a ritual of going to Sapor for New Year's Eve. Call early for reservations as it tends to fill up quickly. They have a special menu for the New Year's Holiday.This year they had a shrimp and baby back ribs specials. I had a very tender meat entree with delectable vegetables. Our reservation was for 830 pm... More

A small menu, but one which changes seasonally - we were fortunate they still had the burnt ends on the menu. The dining room was completely booked, so we opted to sit in the bar/lounge - we think this was a good choice as with most of the Loop restaurants, the old warehouse-style buildings have very high ceilings and get...

Sapor Cafe & Bar is located in the North Loop of Minneapolis inside a cavernous building - saying that since the acoustics does not lend to conversation. There is outdoor seating. Thank goodness the food is good. The menu is short and the drink selection is varied. We both had the pancetta burger in brioche bun which included fries, $13.... More

We stopped by for an early dinner before a show at Sapor. It's one of the trendy restaurants in the North Loop. Service was prompt and friendly. Atmosphere is very nice. Good acoustics for an easy conversation. We enjoyed appetizers of fried green tomatoes, fries and olives. All were very good as were the signature cocktails. Dinner menu is limited.... More

Sapor has relatively few entrees, but they are imaginative blends of international cuisine that are nicely presented and scrumptious. We most recently had the beetza (beet pizza with goat cheese) and the tiger shrimp with jicama, grapefruit, and mango. We topped it off with a fantastic almond cake. They have nice tables for two by the windows which we enjoy.... More

My wife and I have made it our goal this year to try as many of the top rated restaurants in the twin cities as we can to expand our culinary horizons and try places and food outside our normal comfort zone. And Sapor is exactly that!! The menu choices are quite unique, but the food was extremely flavorful and... More

Enjoyed a nice gathering with my friend. Comfortable simplicity of ambience. Almost stark in a very comfortable way that can grow on you, and just right lighting to boot, in my opinion. Very good drinks, and the food is also simple while being creative and tasty. Different favors, not run of the mill. MUST try the tasty black bean fries.... More

Seasonal menu, all organic ingredients. Beetza was simple awesome. I never had anything like it before. Also loved the brussel sprouts. Both the dishes were delecious.
