gourmet food and friendly service.

we stopped in for a light dinner after a visit to the Plains Museum. Service was friendly and competent. Food was fresh and nicely prepared. Flavorful and not overly salted. The chocolate souffle and homemade ice-cream is delicious. And nice surprise.

This is a truly extraordinary boutique hotel in Fargo. We are here on business. Some of us have stayed here, and the rest of us want to. Each suite is unique and spectacular. Don't take my word for it. See for yourself.

This is the place to go eat if you're looking for an unusually classy and delicious dining experience in Fargo. It's not exactly cheap but it shouldn't be expected to be, considering how it is the most iconic and happening, hip place to eat and drink downtown.

Wonderful food and good service. Creative but respectful of regional taste and nuances. Well run. Casual atmosphere. A little more formality I. The service may be better.

Fargo's brunch scene was really lacking until the Hodo Restaurant started serving! The menu is quite a large menu with a great selection for anyone to choose from. I find most places in Fargo cater towards a certain type of person. (ie. those who consider iHop the best breakfast place) The Hodo does not. It's a foodie paradise for brunch... More

We enjoyed a fabulous meal at the Hotel Donaldson. What a treasure. The food and wait staff were great. The chef came to our table to make sure we enjoyed our meal. You deserve a meal at the Ho Do.

When in Fargo, you must make the short trip to downtown and visit the Hotel Donaldson for excellent food and atmosphere. I have had the pleasure of trying virtually everything on the menu and nothing disappoints. Enjoy!!!

HoDo is a landmark on Broadway! Great food (World Class) and drinks with a welcoming staff makes your visit to Downtown Fargo rememberable! The seasonal roof bar offers a view to enjoy. Rooms at the HoDo are over the top cool as this remodeled Hotel has class and character... Famous people's choice when in Fargo.

The restaurant is tops, but if you must pinch pennies, do get dessert. We were amazed and sooo happy we got the ice cream sundae with berry sauce. Sauce is an incredible reduction of multiple kinds (?) Of berries. Comes sprinkles with fresh raspberries. Vanilla ice cream is homemade. I swear I could bathe in the sauce it's so good.... More
