Visited this place on the recommendation of a local friend. Dinner and a cocktail on a Thursday afternoon at 4. The place was busy and WAY understaffed. Even so, my server made no attempt to hustle and often just ignored me. It's incredibly frustrating to come go to a restaurant, watch others be seated after you and served before you.... More

I really wanted to like this place, because it has such a "hip" vibe to it and it came recommended. I just can't give it my top score though, because the service was really not up to par. It was ten minutes form the time I was seated until my waiter arrived, then ten more minutes for him to return... More

The atmosphere and the food bring out the best in everyone who stops by the HoDo. Remember to ask for the signature cocktail as you will not be disappointed. If you are there for lunch, nothing beats their daily three course special and the price is right.

Had time for one meal in Fargo before continuing on our cross-country road trip, glad we chose HoDo. After 10 hours in the car, it felt great to unwind and enjoy some really fabulous cocktails. My girlfriend enjoyed what she calls "the best onion rings of all time", ad we also shared a cheese plate and a few other appetizers.... More

This was our second time here. The first was just ok so we thought we'd try it again. The salad greens were rather wilted and there was too much dressing. The meals were ok but not what one would expect for the cost. Unfortunately for over $150 for 4 we could find a better meal elsewhere. Only 3 ate meals... More

We visited Fargo during Restaurant Week & really enjoyed this one. We got a 3 course meal....gourmet quality...for a reasonable price. The bison hangar steak was delicious. It's a uniquely decorated restaurant attached to Hotel Donaldson. Also had great service!

You'll find fresh, high quality ingredients prepared into very tasty, unique, and visually appealing meals that are not pretentious or unduly expensive. Now where else are you going to find a croque-monsieur ordered next to a bison burger? The menu is simple and straightforward, but written with very specific ingredients and concepts in mind. I got the impression right away... More

We were both very pleasantly surprised by the service, ambiance, and meals we experienced here. The ingredients were fresh, the flavors are unique and very good. If we ever get back to Fargo, this is on the list of must dos. Make reservations, plenty of parking in the area.
