While visiting lovely Fargo ND we ate at HoDo Lounge/Restaurant after reading reviews on trip advisor. What a great surprise!! The restaurant works with local farmers so the produce is fresh and delicious. I had the grilled walleye and roasted vegetables which were excellent and my friend ordered the mushroom risotto, also very good. With several drinks, the price of... More

My husband and I traveled to ND in order to check off the state in our quest to visit all 50 states. Imagine our surprise when we found a really great restaurant and lounge in the very cute downtown area!! Wonderful martini and food was fabulous

This is the fourth time to the HoDo and we keep coming back. The food is very good if not great and we enjoy the vegan options.

We ate in the restaurant a year before and found it wonderful. The dishes were imaginative and everything was perfectly prepared. In fact, we even spent the night in Fargo so we could eat here again. However, we were to be disappointed. Although the food was good - there was nothing on the menu that you could not get in... More

The HoDo features an interesting menu and great lounge atmosphere. Service was also great. My only "complaint" is that it is a bit pricey for Fargo, but the great food and drink menu plus the hip vibe makes it worth it. Definitely recommend.

We had decided to swing in here, as the decor looked so interesting, and the establishment came highly recommended. We were not disappointed. I would recommend the wild rice burger, "for sure"! Downtown Fargo is such a unique area with many interesting bars and restaurants. It would be my choice for every visit, versus the chain restaurants in other parts... More

We were in town for the Fargo Marathon, and our friend who lives there took us to HoDo. Given the number of people in town for the event, the place was busy. But the wait for a table was not long and the food was wonderful. The menu listed the local sources for the food, and the selection of local/... More

Stopped in on the way through Fargo with our 2 year old daughter. Staff was excellent and they had high chairs no problem. Cool decor especially the tile wall art between the lounge and restaurant. Food arrived very quickly and the meals were good. The only issue was that I ordered the Spicy Stir fry, which had great flavour, but... More

We tried a little bit of everything because the chefs combine things I'd never think to try. The presentation of the food is gorgeous and every bite leaves me wanting more (and some dishes are only a few bites). Every time we go the menu is different and fresh for the season. Really creative dishes! It's a great local restaurant... More
