so, off season - end of september. We stayed in the hotel and always like to eat and drink close to the hotel (and, as for the Radisson, room 1515 is wonderful). We like to have a cocktail hour around 6pm to figure out what we do each day. An excellent manhattan at the bar with a very good bartender... More

Friendly staff, but the skills of the chef was in no way impressive. My meatloaf stuffed with ham and musrooms was dry and had spent to little time in the microwave oven.

This was our first stop to kick off a fun wedding weekend for our friends. We came to watch the sunset and check out the beautiful view. We ordered drinks and snacks, and everything was so great! The scallops and fries are amazing! Definitely recommended. We also had the olives, which were to die for, and the risotto was one... More

My wife and I came here on Friday to celebrate our anniversary, and we had a wonderful time. First, the restaurant is 16 floors up in the Radisson Hotel in downtown Duluth, with expansive views of the downtown area, hills behind Duluth, Canal Park, the Lake, etc. The food was very good; my wife and I each were very pleased...

Rotating restaurant was interesting and the view was beautiful! However, the food was similar to any breakfast restaurant in any town and not worth almost $40.00 that we spent.

We ate a family lunch in April. We visited Duluth to eat here. Our kids always asked how the restaurant rotated so we thought it a treat to bring them. It's unique. Food was good. Awesome views. Expensive for a family outing. That's why we went for lunch. I would recommend a one-time visit.

Dinner was excellent. My friend and I dropped off flowers to be set on the table for when we arrived with our ladies. They did a magnificent job in making sure everything was perfect. Our waitress (Dawn) was just the best! She made the night so enjoyable, as we were not rushed into ordering and given all the time we... More

We have been a few times for brunch buffet, had good food, great view. Visited this morning for weekday breakfast with kids. Had great food but painfully slow service. The child at the table next to us was crying by the time their food finally arrived. Save visit for adults only.
