During our visit in August we were told by a few people that this restaurant was a must while in Minneapolis. For some reason we were not blown away by this place. As vegetarians we were surely testing the kitchen to see if they could handle a non-meat dish and, in the end, I would grade them with a C+. Everything was fairly tasty but it was missing the refinement one would expect from a highly touted restaurant, in fact, I think their current or former chef was a James Beard winner or nominee. The desserts were the high point of the night. In summary I would recommend this restaurant but with a few caveats: 1) it's not the best choice for vegetarians, the atmosphere upstairs is inferior to the downstairs, it feels more like a waiting room that they never expected to use until they got full. 2) the service can be frustratingly slow at times (we heard this from a couple of friends after the fact). 3) Don't take a table upstairs, it has a weird vibe to it, sort of like you're not supposed to be there.
