Best dessert!

This high-end restaurant was simply lovely. Minus the expensive prices and the over-bearing waiter who kept sneaking up on us, the experience was great!

Set next to beautiful Loring Park, Cafe Lurcat was a first-time visit for us, when we had family in town. We understand the menus change periodically, to keep a fresh feel to each visit. We were there about the time a change-over to a new Summer menu occurred, and we were not disappointed: new ideas from the chef, and fresh... More

My third visit here, as good or better than my first and second! I am finding that, although their menu is extensive, with something for everyone, I am particularly enjoying their seafood dishes. The Chilean sea bass with a miso glaze, while sounding commonplace, was cooked to perfection; crispy on top, moist and flaky in the center and the miso... More

My first experience at this restaurant happens to be their Sunday date night and, when I left, I was ready to go back the following day! The cafe is a beautiful place and quite large, to my surprise. Rustic, classy Tuscany meets grand chandeliers to create an amazing place to dine! The host and the server were wonderful; very friendly... More

Date night on Sunday evening is a good way to experience Cafe Lurcat without completely ruining your bank account. And, we went as a three top and they just prorated the bill accordingly. It is a pre-set menu which offers many choices of appetizer, entree, dessert and a bottle of wine. Food was interesting, service was more than excellent. Our... More

We dined at the Café Lurcat with friends who live in Minneapolis who dine there often and it was everything it is cracked up to be. We went on a Sunday evening as it was the only night available and were surprised to find that they have great deals designed to attract diners on what would otherwise be a quiet... More

Loved this restaurant! Service was impeccable, ambiance was excellent and food was fantastic. I would suggest sitting in the "bar area". I use quotes because the "bar" was more like a separate section of the restaurant vs. a "bar". I did learn after looking on their website a second time after returning home that the bar has a separate menu... More

Wonderful upscale ambiance overlooking Loring Park. Great menu I had the Pappardelle in Goat Cheese Cream (amazing) and BLT salad and brussel sprouts and all were very good. It's spendy but great for a nice night out. Right level of service and food timing. Valet is $8. Have ate in the bar also and the food is great too at... More

This is a phenomenal restaurant that is one of my absolute favorites. Their dishes are a unique upscale twist on the mains you might expect at other nice restaurants. Its the type of place that you promise to keep visiting because you can't decide on just one main dish to try. Last visit I had the filet which was seared... More
