I attended a cocktail reception and dinner here one Sunday evening. A sliced baguette, salad, entree, and dessert were served, and all were delicious. Three of the four walls were composed entirely of windows, so the light was beautiful, and you can see so much of the surrounding city below, some... read more

We had several days of meetings here and it has the BEST views of downtown Minneapolis. Highly recommend it for conferences and meetings of any kind.

Windows on Minnesota is a giant restaurant and event venue at the top of the IDS in Minneapolis. I can only imagine how many millions of dollars this restaurant would make if the food was acceptable. The view of the city of Minneapolis is spectacular. I live locally so I enjoyed staring out the windows at recognizable landmarks like Target... More

We hosted our wedding here (in the Stars room to be exact), one of the 'smaller' rooms on the 50th floor. It very comfortably accommodated our ~100 guests and felt very quant, albeit a regal feeling location. The service was wonderful, the food exceptional (hosted by Basil's), and the event planner (via the Marquette Hotel) outstanding! Wouldn't have changed a... More

Marvelous Easter Sunday brunch. Everything from fresh fruit, lox, cheeses, shrimp, standard breakfast fare, carving station with ham, beef and lamb, extreme desert selections all on the 50th floor of the IDS tower in downtown Minneapolis. The Buffett spread would make many cruise ships envious. Brunch is offered every Sunday with Easter and Mother's Day being more elaborate. Large staff... More

Unfortunately the rating system will not allow me to give 0 Stars...so I have to give 1 which is too many! We recently had an event at Windows on Minnesota, and I have no problem telling anyone and everyone I know "never hold an event at Windows on Minnesota". It came down to a war of words with the coordinator... More

Can you go here for actual dinner? I thought it was just for wedding receptions and stuff. That being said, it's really nice!

Horrible buffet-style food. And overpriced. Not worth the view.
