“Perfect place to revisit over and over!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Took my family out to celebrate my girlfriends B'day and it couldn't have been a more perfect experience. They put B'day confetti on the table, took our picture and brought a complimentary B'day dessert with a candle in it. There were six of us and all but one of us got the Filet Mignon and left saying that it was the best piece of meat we have ever had! Thank you so much and I look forward to visiting again very soon!

“A Delightful Evening of Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

The food and service at Joan's in the Park was exceptional. Everyone took time to make our dining experience memorable. When I had a question about how the roasted radishes were prepared, Chef Susan not only answered my question but wrote out the recipe for me!

“Five stars are not enough!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We brought my mother here recently for her 90th birthday and we could not have made a better choice. This is a small, intimate restaurant - and the owner and chef come around periodically to see how you are doing. The table was strewn with colorful confetti to celebrate the birthday, the server was helpful and charming, the decor was elegant and understated. Everything we ordered was perfectly cooked, imaginatively prepared, and beyond delicious. I can't wait to go back to St. Paul and go to Joan's again!

“If you haven't eaten here, do.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Excellent food, very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Nice atmosphere and outdoor patio. I love the special touch of the chef hand-delivering the food to the table. Will definitely be back!

“A gem with outdoor dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Some of the best food I have ever eaten. Innovative and delicious. Make sure you order the steak tartare. The wait staff was terrific. Susan, the chef, has great creativity and Joan makes the best hostess. The wine list was also very well chosen. It was our favorite meal in the Minneapolis area.
