Awesome food!

I've only eaten once but yearning to go back. The food was truly amazing. The fish was cook to perfection. This is hard to beat in term of good American food.

We were a party of 6. Three had the Sea Bass and loved it. The other three had each one of the three specialties. I had the Squid Ink Linguine with Lobster and thought it was rather salty, but didn't want to say anything. Another had the Stroganoff. It's only when he said his meal was salty did I say... More

Cafe Lurcat is a romantic gem anytime with very good food and wine for reasonable prices. The way the space is designed, I feel myself relaxing every time I go there. It's location on the edge of Loring Park which is a quiet place on the edge of downtown adds to it's ambiance. On Sundays they do a fixed price... More

I love this place! Every time I go there I walk through the door and feel like I'm in another world. Very eclectic decor, fun bar, and great food! Especially the little burgers and fries and the amazing sea bass!! Go there just for fun or for a special occasion! You won't be disappointed!!

I love this restaurant. The food is always excellent, the cocktail list varied and all tasty, and the atmosphere is superb. I've always had attentive, knowledgeably servers who perfectly balance being available without hovering. The menu is a little pricy to be sure, but for a special occasion or the occasional splurge I highly recommend it!

Ok. You don't go to Cafe Lurcat for desserts but maybe you should! We had a great evening at Lurcat. Appetizers, extensive wine list - settled on a Chappellet Cab, Entrees were excellent as one would expect, wait staff and atmosphere were excellent but the desserts wow. Dark Chocolate Profiteroles with Salted Carmel Ice Cream and Spiced Candied Pecans. Orange... More

We took our 3 kids to dinner here - 6:30 reservations on a Friday night. It was almost empty and they gave us the best table in the house. We ordered ourselves a bottle of wine and the kids chose their drinks - one being a virgin pomegranate mojito - excellent. Waitstaff was chatty, informed and on the spot with... More

Went to Lurcat for the first time and was not disappointed. The recommended wine choice was excellent. The food was wonderful. Couple small plates and spilt the scallops. I would return to this establishment every time I visit twin cities. Do yourself a favor and try it out.

Thanks to my wonderful wife we secured a prime time reservation on Valentine's. We had live Jazz, great wine and an amazing 4 course tasting menu (actually got to try 8 items as we are the weird couple that splits every plate). Based on the price point not a place we'd frequent every weekend, but a definite winner for special... More
