Lovely dining room with lots of natural light. Nice that the tables were not so close that you could still have a conversation without being overheard. Food came promptly and was very appealing to the eye. Quality and freshness of the salads very good. Service could be improved. Longer than normal delay in taking our order and we were not... More

Food was good and servers were helpful, even prepared a birthday "cake" for one of our guests. Ate there twice. Very nice place on corner close to Hyatt.

We had a wonderful dining experience at this restaurant several years ago and recently returned hoping to enjoy it again. The service was fine but the quality of the food was really disappointing. We both ordered the beef tenderloin and for $43 one would expect beef of the highest quality. This was not the case. Not much flavor either. As... More

Delicious French cuisine with reasonable portions. 5 of us dined together and 3 had lamb and 2 had sea bass and we all loved our dinner! Server was very attentively quiet- what I like in a server. Delicious French bread with soft butter. Nice layout with tables not too close so you felt like you were alone. Wine is from... More

Just across Peavey Plaza from Orchestra Hall, Vincent is our [and many other's] preferred choice for pre-concert dining. With a wall of windows facing Nicollet Mall, the menu at this high-ceilinged white tablecloth restaurant is equal parts traditional French and Chef Vincent's own innovations - with generally interesting and pleasing results. While they are well experienced at accommodating diner's pre... More

I went here for lunch on my birthday. I ordered a baby kale salad with grilled vegetables. The "vegetables" were limp, wet and horrid. The whole salad tasted and smelled like fish. When I told the waitress about it, she picked it up, stuck her nose in it and smelled it. GROSS! She did not offer a substitution or discount.... More

We frequently eat here before the symphony but as the Minnesota Orchestra has been locked out for a year and a half, they apparently have forgotten how to staff the restaurant. Never a bad meal, but very rarely a great meal, food is average French food with average French dishes. M. Bibb would hardly think of visiting if it were... More

Best quality happy hour wine in the Cities. Inexpensive and quality...AND it rotates. Food is yummy. They also sport the best happy hour burger in town, stuffed with gouda and served with fries or salad. It's a serious meal. Good service, nice location, and great outside patio. Why not?

We got the tasting menu with wine pairing. Highly recommend! Everything was delicious, the wine went perfectly, the portions were just right, and the hazelnut chocolate cake with a pear poached in red wine for dessert was absolutely TO DIE FOR. My poor husband got the cheese plate, which was nice, but the cake is roll-your-eyes-back-in-your-head good. The atmosphere was... More

We had a table by the window looking out at the intersection of Nicollet and 11th street. Perfect to watch the hustle and bustle of downtown Minneapolis. The prefix menu for restaurant week was perfect. We were pleasantly full. We love small food, large plates. The Sommelier chose a nice white wine saving us from choosing from the many options....
