Had the petit fillet, medium rare. It was grilled to the correct degree, but arrived too cold to melt butter, texture mealy. The mushrooms were too salty to eat. The bread was also quite salty -- unfortunate, because otherwise it was excellent bread. The service was excellent also, warranting a good tip.

Ok, so this is our favorite place for steaks. We get the NY strip and have never been disappointed. The menu is simple and the service professional (old-style). Outside of the entree and usual salad/potato there's the grilled bread (unbelievable) and the tomatoes/pickles plate (my favorite!). When you finish dinner, go to the bar - especially on a Fri/Sat night,... More

When we first arrived we decided to go into the Lounge for a drink before dinner. I was totally surprised with the overall room and décor! WHAT A GREAT PLACE! I love all of the red leather upholstery, the high back booths, the different floor levels of seating, the corner dance floor and stage and the bar in the middle... More

It seems we always go here for celebrations, this last time was for Mother's Day. This restaurant has old school charm, the owners make you feel welcomed. I, my daughter & daughter-in-law all received long stem roses and complimentary mimosas (and we could keep our glasses!). The food is tasty, good value for your money. Each meal comes with a... More

Very old school steak house - relish tray, garlic toast basket, baked potato, simple salad with classic dressings. Good for a basic steak and potatoes - service was steady - drinks good - wine list fair. Your parents will like this restaurant!

I'll take this place over Manny's or Murray's in Minneapolis any day. Family owned and an icon of St Paul.

Very old school, but very good steak! I had a filet that was very good and cooked the way I like it (medium). Very good baked potatoes. My wife had the blackened walleye which was also very good!! The garlic bread was good. The waiter was only average.

Any special occasion comes along and we head to Mancini's Char House on West 7TH St in St. Paul, MN. It's quite a drive from Mahtomedi, MN (25 miles)but well worth the trip. You know that you will not be disappointed. I always get the large Sirloin Steak, and it is always mouth watering ($24) and delicious! Only problem is... More

Macini's is a classic! Right out of the past. Simple menu (meat!), good drinks, and a great atmosphere. We had a work event here w/30 people or so and we had the back room. We had great service and food.
