This is my favorite place for a romantic dinner with my husband. It's a cool place rich with history. Drinks are delicious, food is amazing. We went there for my birthday and had a wonderful time. My only complaint is that they give you a lame cupcake for your birthday, instead of your choice of dessert from the menu. The... More

We went for an early dinner before a late game. We wanted to have enough time and had a wonderful meal. The staff were welcoming an attentive. The food was excellent. My steak was tender and my wife's scallops were fresh. I highly recommend the grape leaf wrapped goat cheese appetizer.

We always go to Forepaugh's for special occasions. They always make our evening special with their service, attention to detail, the delicious food, excellent wine list, and they provide a feeing of being catered to. On last Friday we took friends from California to our favorite restaurant. They loved the historic house and the charm. They were very impressed with... More

Oh, I wanted this place to be great. It's my dad's favorite restaurant in the cites and a quick walk up from my parents condo. Beautiful setting, relaxing table on the upper patio. We ordered drinks and a charcuterie plate to share and were enjoying the evening. Service was attentive but the food came out very slowly, which was fine... More

My husband and I recently had dinner here with a mixed experience. The ambiance and location are great- easy parking right across the street, an attentive host, and good service. The outdoor dining is wonderful if you have a good night for it and the setting of the home is really unique. The wine and cocktails we had were nice... More

Unfortunately, we are going to have to rate this place very poorly. It is a great atmosphere. We were seated in a small room upstairs, at first alone, but then with 5 other of the loudest, rudest group you could find. We were not able to carry on a conversation at normal speaking levels. We ordered a Waldorf salad, two... More

This was our first visit in many years, and the food and service were incredible. The waiter did an excellent job of recommending drinks to compliment our entrees. We enjoyed the steak. The shattered beet salad was uniquely delicious. We wrapped up our meal with the deconstructed banana cream pie, which was a fun twist and sweet twist on dessert.... More

The historic Forepaugh's house in St Paul beckons those with a passion for stories. Your curiosity will peak as you explore every room and the servers share the previous owners tragedies. This historic gem is complimented beautifully by the chef's delicious approach to finer pallets. Do not be afraid to try something new! This is the place to do it!... More

This was our first time at Forepaugh's, but it will not be our last! The meal was outstanding! Each dish was very special and prepared in with a special touch! This is a historical place, an old converted house. Each room is lovely, and with only a few tables in each, the atmosphere is delightful. The servers couldn't have been... More

My wife is still talking about the Beef Wellington after almost a week; Forepaugh's is now her place of choice for steak. After devouring my rib eye, I understand where she's coming from; but the real winner here is the gravy that is served with it- clearly made from the pan drippings, it is succulent, rich, sweet, and oh so...
