Description: Ursula"s Wine Bar & Cafe is a quaint, intimate, quiet fine dining restaurant. With 39 seats it is a romantic setting for a first date or anniversery. The monthly changing menu offers selections that showcases local farmers. The award winning wine list contains 150 wines. The outdoor deck creates a beautiful place to enjoy Minnesota summer. The staff is friendly and knowledgable. Ursula's brings back thoughts of a small European bistro in a metro suburban setting.

This was our favorite wine bar. The food was superb. The staff was attentive without being obnoxious. It appears they were too far out of the way for many. Unfortunately they are closed.

Ursula's is one of the finest dining establishments in the Twin Cities. No one should ever miss one of their wine dinners. They are awesome. Last night we attended on featuring Huia and Honky Dory Wines. Each of the 6 dishes were a delight and the wines were simply extraordinary. Each dinner at any time of the year has been... More

Visited Ursula's Wine Bar on May 18/2013. We called to see if we needed reservations and they said, "YES!" But, the entire time we were there, the place had lots of open space. We sat outside on the small deck, which was a good thing because the inside smelled like Pine Sol! Ugh. The smell was overwhelming! If they wouldn't... More

Had a wonderful evening last night with my bride, despite how it started out. We decided to use a Groupon we had attempted to use a couple months ago. The Groupon was Dinner for 2 and wine at Ursula's Wine Bar in White Bear. The first time we went "the ovens are out" was what we were greeted with. No... More

Ursula's is a great experience whether for wine and appetizers or for a full meal. The food is well prepared - Nouvelle Cuisine. The wine list sound. The place is quite small, less than ten tables. The owners are pleasant and excellent hosts. They have a small outdoor seating area.

We went with friends using a Groupon coupon and were treated very, very well. Sometimes it feels if you come with a coupon or offer, the service or food might be less than anticipated, but all was great.

Had a groupon for 4. Good food. Limited menu but had good choices. Nice wine selection. A little loud. Sunday night guitar player was a nice touch. Only one waitress so service a little slow but she was good. Would go back again.

This is a very personal restaurant. The people become like family and their email newsletter is also full of personal news of their staff. The food is quite good and Curt is a good sommelier(as well as the owner)

Monday evening, before 6 p.m. - won't need a reservation. We were wrong, fortunately we were able to get seats at the bar. We chose the $35 salad or soup, entree, dessert and glass of wine before 6 p.m. option. I had the sautéed chicken breast which had a light breading and very pleasant lemon flavor. It was served with... More

We had Sunday night dinner at this small, neighborhood wine bar. They were not busy so it was very quiet. The service was attentive and the food very good but not top notch and the menu was very limited. We thought the prices were a bit high for the amount and quality. Although this is a wine bar, my husband... More
