I come to The Sample Room quite a bit because I love their vegetable dishes. They change it up pretty frequently but there are always some favs on the menu like brussel sprouts in harissa sauce. Yum. The service is always good and the building is very pretty. They usually have some weird movie on the TV by the bar... More

Great food, drinks and service in a very cozy small place that makes you feel at home. Try the appetizers, the chicken and soups. And... everything in between.

The negative: the room was cold and the service spotty. Positive: Great menu, drinks and food. I'll go again. Just wear layers in the winter.

Six of us met for lunch and we all were very pleased with the quality of our meals. I had the Reuben sandwich, and it was terrific - the meat was very tender and the slaw delicious. My husband had the Italian sandwich and the soup of the day and he enjoyed both very much. Our friends had the beet... More

Some friends and I went to the Sample Room for a birthday dinner, and it was very tasty. We ordered all four vegetarian sample plates plus the Tuna Tartare. Everyone's favorite dish was the fried beets with candied...something, whatever it was was really good. We also tried the Scotch flight, which was 2/3 good (the middle 10yr I think? was... More

We ordered 2 drinks, which took less than 5 minutes to hit our table. Both drinks were delicious, mine was perfectly strong, but drinkable. they are a little... More

My friend and I ate on the patio of The Sample Room on a saturday morning for an early lunch. We ended up ordering a few of the "sample plates" and shared a fritata. We also had the Minneapolis beer flights and peach champagne cocktail. The food was very good, though a little spendy for the small portion amounts. Our... More

We found this place surfing the internet as we were driving North for an extended Minneapolis area weekend. On arrival we couldn't have been happier with the variety of small plates and craft beer choices to choose from. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. We liked the laid back atmosphere and due to the lateness of the hour and... More

Popped in here for a before dinner drink and, as usual, should have just stayed here. We ordered up 'The Ginger Lemonhead'.....amazing....do NOT miss sipping one of these on a summer day. Why did we leave??? I have been coming here since it opened, years ago now, and every single time, its a FULL experience (great food, drinks, staff, conversation,... More

We went to the Sample Room to celebrate Fathers Day. We had a great meal. Love the options on the menu - you can choose a basic option like a burger or some other more creative choice. We loved the cheese selections, tried 2 of the specials, and several beer flights. Service was good and as always the beet salad... More
