My wife and I posted up at the bar for a drink and some appetizers. The bartenders are very talented and accommodating. Sitting at the bar rail turn out to be a free show watching them make drinks and work so flawlessly

This place is absolutely amazing. You get the feel of a high class place without having to pay 200 dollars per person per meal. I had the Norwegian Salmon and a mixed drink that had cucumbers in it. It was seriously so amazing that my girlfriend and I went back the next night and had it again! Would highly recommend... More

Looking for downtown gathering place, live music, all fresh delicious food and great atmosphere? This is it. This is a romance, special occasion dinner place. But the lounge is anytime. Great for get together with friends while checking out downtown.

Nice experience for first time to see it for a meal to get prepared, but little expensive because the plates are very small and you have to go and prepare additional amount every time. Bit by bit. Though, I enjoyed it and get some pictures for memory.

We started with drinks in the lounge, a special concoction from the bartender - excellent! Moved to the dining room for dinner. They are a Farm to Table restaurant listing the local sources for the menu items they are able to locally source. My concern about this movement in the winter in the Midwest is that they are sacrificing quality... More

Loved this place. Great drinks, great food. Love being there with friends and family. Often great live music and unique artists. Come with time to spare: the ambiance is something you don't want to rush (service is also great). :)

we were delighted with our meal, the service and the atmosphere. Unlike other dining establishments, you could actually have a conversation without having to yell. The chef sent out a sample of an appetizer (apple with potato...delicious), we asked to share a bloody mary, but they kindly split a tall one in half so we each could have our own.... More

For fans of the HoDo, locally and elsewhere, do not fret about our new chef. If you have recently been to the HoDo recently, their menu is not the typical menu one expects. After sharing our frustration with the waitstaff, we asked if the chef could do a mystery dish and create something. We were blown away. The chef came... More

I was dying to go to Fargo, ND because my favorite movie is "Fargo". I expected the city to be a bit blah but not so. Hodo Lounge fits right in with Fargo's array of cool shops along Broadway. The lounge features comfy-hip decor. Our waiter, Ken, provided outstanding, friendly service, he could not have been nicer! We started with... More
