Beautiful place to relax and unwind after a long day. Great food and service. The bar is the place to relax with friends and they make the best martinis.

I wanted to like Iven's but the food was so-so. The drinks were excellent, desert great. We had sashimi for starters, as good as can be in Minnesota. No complaints there. Wife had halibut, very good, didnt need the blue cheese on it though. I...More
