Grilled octopus and crab cakes were fantastic!

We also had steak and fish. The steak was very well prepared, but the pickerel in a maple syrup glaze was far too sweet.

Everything was fantastic--both the service and food were great. But you must try the Strawberry Shortcake. It was out of this world--and enough for at least 2 people.

The food was not outstanding. Ours was just warm not hot. It was more of a show place than a restaurant. Service was average.

Preceding dinner we were served a basket of warm fresh breads. For dinner I ordered from the prix fixe menu. It included a huge green salad with pear, walnuts and cheese.

Great food and service at the St Paul Grill. Steak is always great, fish is extremely good too. Check the Wild schedule and go late if they have a game.

The food was so wonderful, our tongues were dancing in our mouth's. The service is top notch, the food was excellent. If you are downtown for an event, they will go as fast or slow as you would like.
