When we arrived with reservations on a Friday evening, the valet was there immediately for the car++. Once inside awaiting our check in we were adjacent to the lounge. WOW, get your head set on. It was crazy loud. We were seated right away down a really interesting stone walled hallway to a gorgeous wide open seating area. The acoustics... More

I went there with colleagues from work as we were in town for a meeting event. While personally I am not one to be impressed with "trendy" places with high prices, I would say that this one does impress with the service and the food. I choose the pork tenderloins as it was one of the few choices I thought... More

We chose to sit in the bar area, as it was two hours to get a dinner room reservation when I called prior to choosing the restaurant. We were pleased with the seating as it is definitely not the typical bar seating. For food we ordered spring rolls as an app and the portion was small but very tasty. As... More

The star of the menu is the sea bass. As more of a veggie eater, I get excited about the vegetable side dishes ie. brussel sprints, cauliflower. The black and white checkered floor of the bar has a great swanky vibe, and the outdoor patio is a nice city retreat in the warmer months.

My wife and I, along with another couple, had the pleasure of dining at Café Lurcat for the first time on November 22, 2014. Our experience began with a genuinely friendly greeting at the check in desk. We were escorted to our table that was by a window, overlooking the park. Each staff member we passed greeted us with a... More

I really enjoy going to Cafe Lurcat - its a great feel, the bohemian vibe is cool, fun to people watch and they have good food and service. The outdoor area in the summer and warmer months is always a great place to meet and have a drink after work

We went to Lurcat on a Sunday night, date night :). We had a salad that was great, a pork tenderloin and desert along with a bottle of wine, for just a little over $50 for the two of us. What a wonderful deal. The wait staff was awesome.

Cafe Lurcat is my and my wife's "go to" restaurant in Minneapolis-St. Paul. We come here for special occasions and business dinners and have never, never been disappointed. We recently dined here to "celebrate" my 50th birthday. The food is absolutely outstanding and the Sea Bass preparation never disappoints. Service is excellent without being over-bearing. One can hold a conversation... More

Visiting Minneapolis for a long weekend. This restaurant was recommended by a family member and an acquaintance we met at the airport. Dined on a Sunday night, reservations for two. We were greeted by a friendly hostess when we arrived. While the restaurant appeared moderately busy, we were seated most promptly. Main waiter was courteous and professional. The 'water boy'...
