I love this place.

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

This is one of my favorite regular places to eat in Mpls. Its food is always dependably great! Cocktails are great and a nice wine list. Several options for dinning. Eclectic decor make it a fun place for a romantic dinner or fun with friends!

Some friends and I were in town for a concert on Valentine's Day, admittedly not the best day to go out for dinner. We unfortunately were seated next to the jazz band, which made conversation at our table impossible save for shouting. The service seemed a little rushed, but that is to be expected on Valentine's Day. The food was... More

This restaurant is located near Loring Park, and the interior is very large and open, with an open kitchen. As a result, while it has a very modern feel and look, it is very noisy. This is important if you are trying to have a conversation at a large table, so be forewarned. We ordered wine. I did not get... More

First-time guest at this venue. It sits across from Loing Park on the fringe of downtown. The first problem we ran into was finding the entrance. We assume this is done for the amusement of staff and guest who do find their way in. Multiple doors, some with a banner announcing "cafe" another announcing "bar" none of which are usable... More

My wife and I went here on a Friday night, 7:15 reservation...made reservation the night before...no problem getting in. The place was barely half full but filled up later, around 8 and got really really loud. Most patrons were the over 50 crowd. We had never been here before...decor very well done, giant plants, candles all over the place, brick... More

Back to Lurcat after a year and still a wonderful choice. The lamb was most likely the best we have tried (not part of the regular menu but a special this night). Sea bass also excellent. Always love the brussel sprouts. Atmosphere supurb as is the service. The reason for four stars instead of five is that it is spendy... More
