We were lucky to visit Bar La Grassa for dinner. It's nestled on a pretty tree-lined street and was very busy when we visited. We had to wait a bit for a table but the food was well worth it. The service was very good too! The only complaint would be that there was no parking; we had to park... More

We wanted to experience some memorable dining for our Anniversary prior to our moving away from the Twin Cities and Bar La Grassa did not disappointment. We split a number of small plates - a delectible beet salad and a veal ragu dish among them. Great service and an outstanding evening overall.

A+ restaurant!!! The first time my husband n I went the food wasn't all that but we thought we would give it another try. Second, third and fourth times were A++. One of the best restaurants in the twin cities.

This is a vibrant ( ok noisy) place where it is fun to eat. And the food isn't the same old overcooked pasta with red sauce......This is interesting and well done takes on traditional Italian food. You can order full or half portions and thus taste more than one dish. Great for sharing. On other recommendations we shared a soft... More

We went to the Bar La Grasse Sunday evening for an early diner, about 5:30 pm. We were seated right away and the noise level was low so we could easily converse and the restaurant not crowded. Ann had the beef carpaccio bruschetta and I had the lobster and soft egg bruschetta. Both large and terrific. For the main course,... More

Best Italian restaurant I have been to in awhile. Service was very good and the food matched it. We had the Carbonara (fresh house made pasta), Pappardelle with veal ragu (also fresh house made pasta), broccolini in prosciutto brodo and the white anchovy & avocado bruschetta. Fantastic.

Yum! Great Italian food and amazing atmosphere. I didn't realize that the restaurant scene was this great in MN.

Believe the hype. Had the soft eggs and lobster. Wow. Standout was gnocchi with cauliflower followed by penne with shrimp. Lovely pacing between dishes. My husband and I are big eaters and one appetizer with two pastas was plenty. Yes, it's loud but so what?

Highly rated BLG was awesome. My wife and I sat at the bar and split the Salmon Bruschetta and Carbonara. Both dishes were excellent tasting and the perfect size to share. We visited on a Wednesday night around 7pm. The restaurant was busy, we were there during Ryder Cup week,and buzzing with guests. We stayed at the Loews which is... More

I was able to get a baby sitter for the evening, so the wife and I decided to go to Bar la Grassa for dinner and I'm so glad we did. We got there around 7:15 or so and it was busy, but surprisingly we got a table fairly quickly. We enjoyed a cocktail while we waited and then once... More
