Excellent meal!

This was my second time to Signature Cafe for dinner and I don't remember liking it as much on my first visit as I did last night. We started with a spinach salad and bread, which were both good, but the highlight of the evening for me was the Chicken Marsala, which was the evening's special, and... read more

The most unfortunate restaurant experience I've ever had. The first issue was the fruit flies - we moved three times to try to get away from them, but had to keep swatting them away and looking at them on the table and glasses all through dinner. We should have left at that point. The menu is extensive, and it's not... More

Our first time there tonight, but I know we'll be back. It was like something out of M.F.K. Fisher. Small, tucked away on a side street in Prospect Park. The best onion soup I've had in a long time. Risotto for my partner, seared scallops for me, both were excellent. Wonderful flourless chocolate cake, and an interesting wine list. Lots... More

All I can say is Wow! From start to finish, this was fantastic! Very quiet neighborhood sat on the patio with a beautiful sun and calm breeze, but the best part was definately the great food. A delightful dining experience!

My husband and I were extremely disappointed with dinner at this quaint little restaurant. While the space is appealing, the food is not. The cheese and olive plate lacked creativity, much like the rest of the menu. One choice of delicious cheddar and a bowl of olives for $12 - it could have been so much more intriguing. The Spinach...

I was prepared to be wowed by the food at the Signature Cafe based on reviews I had read on TripAdvisor. We went for dinner and I have to say I was very disappointed, everything we had was just lacking and didn't quite give me the taste and flavor experience I had hoped for. I had risotto with scallops and... More

My wife and I shared the crostini with onions and cheese and found it bland and the bread not toasted. It wasn't bad but it was not what I hoped to find. We shared the spinach salad and a cup of tomato basil soup and liked both of them. The soup was especially good. We both had scallops risotto and... More

A friend and I recently attended the Spring Wine Tasting Dinner at the Signature Cafe, in the Prospect Park neighborhood of Minneapolis. The event was a dining and wine tasting delight, with six small-bite courses of food, each expertly paired with a delicious wine. The food was unusual and delicious! I have dined at the Signature Cafe several times now.... More

The Signature cafe is in a small neighborhood near the University of Minnesota campus. I was with a group of about 10 faculty and staff from the University. The place is small and so there is a feeling of privacy even for a large group. Overall the experience was good and everyone seemed satisfied. As a vegetarian I was a... More

We are thankful we had a Groupon as this was already overpriced for brunch for what you received. Was not even open at time we had reservation for, was dark and opened about 5 after 10am. 10am we were the only ones there. Service was fine but for a 4 course meal server was dressed in hat and sweatshirt and... More
