This was a great place for dinner with friends or for business. I happened to be here on business but lots of couples eating as well. Everything we ordered was great and we had great service. Really a great evening and highly recommended.

Was there for my birthday as the experience was exceptional. Drinks were amazing. My guests were very impressed with the friends and donuts. I loved the tacos :)

Lurcat has a great menu with fine presentation every time. The sides alone would be worth a full meal. The bar has a great small menu with fabulous price points. I haven't even mentioned the beautiful space and fabulous people watching!

We went here for a nice dinner with the whole family and had a great experience. The oysters were so good we ordered another round after polishing off the first 10! Seabass was cooked to perfection and the service was warm yet professional. I would definitely come back for a nice dinner

My first review of this dump was erased by Tripadvisor because I must have been too mean (honest). Boo Hoo Pros: Food was good Cons: High prices Very small portions Very snooty atmosphere, this must be where the elites flock to be seen Staff is unprofessional in their decorum

This is a restaurant that is consistently good in Minneapolis. I love having a view into the kitchen for the organized chaos.

I'll get the only negative I could conjure out of the way first: the restaurant is a bit out of the way, located on a dead end street at the southwest edge of downtown. So you've got at best a bit of a hike from central downtown, or a car or cab ride. Other than that, Lurcat is superior in... More

Went on 7/26 a "date night" here where they offer great courses at basically half price. Wonderful cuisine, service and ambience! Highly recommended!

Whenever I travel to Minneapolis to visit friends, this restaurant is a must. The food is so wonderfully prepared, ambiance is awesome and location is so convenient. Try the sea bass, you will not regret it.
