Date night

We had a great date night with another couple here. The mini donuts are a must have. Great service and really romantic.

Lovely outdoor space for an after-work happy hour. Loved the Lurcat burgers and the Mahi Mahi Fish Tacos. You have to have the Warm Cinnamon-Sugar Doughnuts for desert!

Cafe Lurcat is a staple in our "special event" restaurant lineup. Taking family for a birthday or celebration is always a treat. Trust me (and other reviewers) and get the sea bass. You won't be disappointed.

I looked down the bar and see 9 Martini's in a row, all from different groups of sophisticated people. The music is soft uptempo euro, the chandeliers give a feeling of swank, the light bounces throughout via large windows overlooking the park. Beautiful art and over stuffed chairs and couches. If you want cool and trendy without trying to be... More

Beautiful space and atmosphere! We had our daughter's wedding reception here! The food is spot on as well as the service. The menu flexes and returns to proven faves. Chic yet cosy. A place to spend the evening--on the patio or bar side. Host a small event. The Sea Bass is as good as it gets.

Amazing food. Every time I'm home in MN (which is a couple times a year), I demand we go here. It's my favorite restaurant by far. You must must must order the apple, cheese, and chives salad to start. It's so good. And then for an entree, I cannot stress how great the miso glazed sea bass is... ugh I'm... More

This is a special sophisticated restaurant. Its big and busy but I like it. The staff we have met are excellent. Well trained. We last came in May and loved it. I had the Sea Bass for the first time and it was amazing. The Miso glaze they use is just wonderful. The second time I went, I told the... More

We hadn't been to Cafe Lurcat in ages. We were really looking forward to it. The restaurant was quiet for a Thursday night. Food was good but not great. Portions are small and expensive. My NY strip was overdone but had good flavor. Service was terribly slow even though the restaurant was as well. Not acceptable in my opinion.

The décor was a combination of contemporary meets old school. Very inviting. I was there for a happy hour business event. the appetizers were great and the staff was super attentive. It was a great place for a business event. Only negative is the valet parking too forever.

Spent a lovely few hours on their outside patio with lour well behaved dog. Enjoyed the atmosphere, warm evening, drinks and appetizers. The server was great as one friend arrived a minute before HH ended and she made sure he was able (all of us too) to get a beer at HH prices. We love coming here because they allow... More
