My husband and I went to dinner here before the Playhouse. We had reservations, but we were early. No problem, we were seated by a very kind hostess! They were so attentive! We had Connie wait on us, what a sweet and helpful waitress! The whole crew working there is absolutely wonderful! The chef is tops! We had a delightful... More

Great food and drink. Very nice atmosphere, located in downtown close to the Paul Bunyan playhouse and the statues of Paul and Babe

O my. Unexpected food art. Passing thru, we slid into bar stools and were tended by Ian's discerning interest as he spun drinks. Baby basil. Roasted corn soup. Swordfish. Cocktail creations. What a surprise.

A foodies delight. They source ingredients no one else does in this region and prepare it thoughtfully. Great atmosphere and service. (Picture: Tuna 2 ways. Toro and Tartar.)

WOW, just WOW! This may be a top Italian restaurant, but I just had one of my best seafood plates ever! I had the "Hawaiian Blue Marlin " Marlin served on top of bacon and pasta shells and it was superb! If you plan on eating, make reservations and if weather is right you can eat outside and enjoy the... More

My husband and I ate here during an overnight trip to Bemidji. What a great find! We sat on the lovely patio on a beautiful summer evening. There was a nice selection of beers and the waiter did a great job of describing them. The green olive soup was unique--not overpowering. My husband's Caesar was huge and very tasty--maybe a...

The staff wasn't very friendly. We seemed to be steered away from the dining room and into a bar. Maybe because we had a child or maybe we were dressed to casually--but they didn't seem glad that we came there. They did not appear to be busy. The menu we were given was very sparse--unless you were there to consume... More

I was very excited to come back here and they did not disappoint. The blue marlin special was outstanding and they subbed/modified the sides to fit my diet. The Cesar salad here is the best I have ever had. Unfortunately, the summer version does not come with the Parmesan custard, but the salad is still delicious. I look forward to... More

One of the few handful of places in town that you will consistently get a wonderful meal. Fresh ingredients and well crafted meals. I wish more places in town were like this. Keep it up!!

Wonderful, delicious experience. You need a reservation but just might get seated as a walk in. Largest Table is for six but they will squish seven. Also seating for six at the Chef's Table. Staff were great. Enjoy!
