Sunday night stay, one bartender who also has to serve all the tables and keep bar guests happy. Tons of kids here for a sporting event making it busy. It also seems he's running all his own food. A bit much to ask especially to be able to give good, if any service. Only got a smile and a few... More

This restaurant has a breakfast buffet much like you would find today in many other hotels. The food for lunch, dinner and room service is average and better value would be found for dinner by taking the hotel shuttle to the Mall of America and eating there.

Had both lunch and dinner in this restaurant and was happy with both. Lunch was soup and 1/2 sandwich, the sandwich was ample and the soup (wild rice) was very tasty. Service at dinner was a bit slow but we also had quite a big party. Had the walleye for dinner and it was delicious.

Wonderful experience with Vicky B, Valorie, Minta, Ashlea, Nu Sarra over the last few days. We were in town for a family funeral and they took excellent care of us. Kind, friendly, and attentive service and good food. We appreciated that they let us hang out which gave us a place to be together.

Comfortable setting, nice menu. Waitress's suggestion of the daily special and the MN Wild Rice soup was definitely the way to go. Service was efficient and friendly. Really nice to find such a nice place right in our hotel.

After a long day, I ordered room service from North, as I was staying in the Crown Plaza in Bloomington. I ordered a large pizza with sundried tomato, mushrooms, and onions. The person taking the order spoke extremely quickly and with an accent but repeated my order. About a half an hour later, right on time, the server arrived. First,... More

Had dinner here while staying at the hotel. I had the Cobb Salad, which I recommend highly, as it was delicious. The beer was good and very cold. A reasonably priced hotel restaurant. No complaints, other than the service was a little slow.

Service was expedient and friendly. The wild rice soup is good and creamy and a nice way to end my trip up north. The hummus was alright but the accompanying veggies were really good.

I've stayed at the Crown Plaza Bloomington several times. I've always had a great experience. This time I had breakfast and lunch at the Restaurant inside the hotel. Wow, the breakfast was wonderful and generous portions. However, the lunch was unexpected. I ordered the "North Club" and was plently surprised with the presentation of the sandwich and chips. The wheat... More
