“Nice setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

This restaurant has a very nice setting and the building is quite attractive. The food was good but not quite as good as I expected given its ranking on trip advisor. The crowd was very young (late twenties early thirties) so maybe their clientele is a bit undemanding. It was also very upper middle class so not very good people watching. We much preferred eatery112. The bar looked more interesting than the restaurant.

“Needs work on service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

First let me say that all of the food we had was great, but the service needs work. We sat in the bar because the main dining room was booked. That actually was okay because we wanted to sit and talk. Our server was very friendly, but was not trained well in food and wine pairings. We did find great matches with our dinners, the list is well thought out, if not a little expensive. Our entrees were late, which was fine with us, becuase we wanted to sit and talk with our daughter. All of a sudden, someone decided that we needed to give our table up. From that moment on we were rushed thru the rest of our evening. They will have to decide if they want to be a fine dining establishment or just another trendy place to eat.

“Best Service Staff Around”

I love it here. This is my go to place when I want to get out and escape the young college loud beer slammers. I celebrate my birthday here often.

“Sea Bass is the best thing on the menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

I've been to Lurcat at least a half dozen times and its never disappointed.

The miso sea bass is the signature dish and never fails to delight. Atmosphere is great although it is loud. If you seek a quiet dinner this may not be the place for you.

“Best Place in MPLS”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Food is amazing. The sea bass and egg fried rice should not be missed. Large enough to bring a group for drinks as well.
