I ate at the bar. The menu offered and an interesting range of unique options - not your usual limited bar menu of burgers and sandwiches. Kyle is a terrific bartender. Also, the Monday night 1/2 price bourbon/whiskey deal (not sure if this is year round or just in the off season) offers a fun way to try different brands... More

Best fries in town — share a small plate with drinks before a movie or play. These folks are huge supporters of the arts community in Duluth, so we'd come here even if the food wasn't as good as it is. Great salads and you can't go wrong with their specials. Wonderful weekend brunch. A bit pricier than the few... More

Attached to a theatre so a lobby to wait in. We didn't make reservations so had just a short wait. Interesting food, great service, nice and clean. Portions were fairly big but the food was still excellent. Great place for a conversation, right on Superior street.

It's very tasty and healthy! Very artsy place downtown with a nice view of a pretty hotel facade out the window. Service was friendly. Next to a theater and lots of cool art work to look at.

This was fantastic. Scallops were amazing, grit less, and tender. Tons of flavor. Rissioto was just perfect, not too runny and not dry. Perfectly done. Atmosphere was great, fun and unique. Staff lacked some knowledge on beverages but attentive. Perfect distance from the canal hotels so you can walk off full feeling.

We have eaten here multiple times when we visit Duluth. Our meals have been well prepared with fresh ingredients. This last time was a disappointment: the Green living rice bowl with tofu was dry and I requested more curry sauce. No problem, said the server. Until the bill came: $4 charge for extra sauce! Really? Partner ordered more dressing for... More

We came here because it was close to our hotel and were not disappointed! My wife ordered the scallop dinner and I had the Coconut Curry Bowl with tofu. I still can't decide which was better. Everything was cooked to perfection and the flavors were just fantastic.
