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

Definitely eat here instead of the HoDo Restaurant next door. Although the food is excellent on each side the ambience/atmosphere is much better in the Lounge. Most "urban"-feeling place between Minneapolis and Winnipeg. Local ingredients freshly prepared. Always worth a visit.

Great flavor profiles. The food is AWESOME! The sorbet flight is a must try as well as the grass feed NY with morel. Sat here for multi pal hours ordering lots of items on the menu and couldn't find a bad one. We found a real gem here. When we found out its the only 4 diamond restaurant in ND... More

I felt like I was on the set of "friends". Staff seemed at times arrogant. Food was OK, but some what pretentious. Be prepared to spend a large amount of money, even at lunch. I guess we were just confused at the concept. High end food and drinks with staff that have dirty t-shirts and aprons. (And appear to be... More
