Dinner and the theater could not be easier

Level 5 is a perfect brunch spot to pair with a matinee at the Guthrie. Somewhat limited menu, but food is all good and reasonably priced. Breakfast hash of the day is always unique and Egg Strada was paired with small greens salad and fresh fruit. Soup of the day was carrot soup that light and... read more

We went here prior to a show at the Guthrie. 6 pm reservations were plenty for a 730 show. The food is ok. Many dishes were a bit over spiced. Too much saffron in the cod, too much cumin in the pear dessert but not enough salt in the aroncini. Prices ere reasonable considering the convenience of the venue. The... More

Our family of 7 with three generations enjoyed a lovely & leisurely meal at 5:00 with ample time to meet the 7:30 showtime for the primary reason to be there: A Christmas Carol--at least our 3rd or 4th version in the 4 decades we have been coming to the Guthrie Theatre! Furthermore, this allows some time to wander out the... More

Reservations highly recommended as this place is very busy before a show. We found the menu reasonable in eating options and price. You can choose a three course menu prix fixe or choose individual items from the menu which ranged from a light and lovely salad to a traditional hamburger and fries. The menu appears to change, perhaps with the... More

Stopped for dinner before the Music Man performance. I got the 3 course meal which included a salad, salmon entree, and berry creme brulee. The salmon was excellent, but the salad and dessert were just ok. My daughter got the chocolate cake for dessert and that was amazing. Staff was very nice and accommodating and got us out in time...

For a quick eat before a show, the prices are moderate and the setting is nice. Not the best food in the area, but you can't beat the location.

We decided as a group to eat here as we had tickets for a show that evening. The menu is fairly limited but everyone found something to try from the salmon to pasta to bacon cheeseburger to steak. The food was all fine, no complaints about that. The streak was a little small, it looked lost next to the accompanying... More

We visited on Saturday, July 18, 2015 prior to a 1:00 am matinee. We arrived at 11:30 am at the restaurant. We were seated promptly and given menus as well as the daily specials run down. I had the daily special of quiche with zucchini squash and provolone cheese served with fresh fruit and mixed greens. I also had the... More

Fast, efficient service before a show. Have always enjoyed everything we've ordered. A nice, though not huge, variety of meals. Just right.
