What can I say? Small menu that changes often. Pretty much farm to table concept. Meats, fish and chicken were wonderful. Sides and desserts were out of this world. Some of the best professional and friendly wait staff.

Our disappointment started from the moment we walked in. We had a 6:30 reservation and there was a sign taped to the door saying they were closing at 8 to prepare for renovations. A girl called the day before to confirm my reservation and failed to mention the early closing. The decor is lacking. Very minimal and boring. The crowd... More

After reading the prior reviews, we changed our reservation at another restaurant and opted to try Legume. We were quite disappointed. We found the decor and ambience to be basic, the dinner crowd dull, our waiter disinterested, the wine pours inadequate and the menu lacking in diversity. The walleye pike was bland and dry. In fairness, the steak was excellent... More

It was no problem to reserve a table via internet only 90 minutes before I wanted to dine. Friendly greeting and a very pleasant room. Range of dishes is not huge, and the menu seems to change often, both of which are often -- as here -- a good sign. The kitchen staff clearly know what they are doing. Though... More

I went here with some friends and had a very pleasant evening aided, no doubt, by the great atmosphere and delicious food on offer. The restaurant offers a slightly different take on the starter which is a selection of dishes that can be shared. We opted for the Pistachio and Pork Paté. A good choice. For the entrée, I ordered...

Legume as a whole is a great restaurant. Everyone dining there that evening seemed to be enjoying themselves. People were well dressed and having a great time. Out table was a single thick slab of wood, which somehow spoke to the restaurant's connection to quality ingredients. Service was very friendly and welcoming. Food was terrific. I had a wilted dandelion... More

The menu was very unique with items such as nettle soup, goat shank, and pasta with a fried egg on top. The desserts sounded great, but I was surprised that they didn't offer cappuccino or espresso.

This is a go to place for a special occasion. The meals are always creative with fresh locally sourced ingredients, and the wine list is very good, and reasonably priced.
