This is where I go for all of my dinners with all of my favorite people. This place is so special I really want to take everyone I know here. This is where I have my Christmas time dinner, my New Year's eve celebrations and my weekday cocktails in the evening with friends. I've spent considerable time in Spain, this... More

We always order the same thing here - the chicken, I know you can cook chicken at home - but it's not like here! Go for it - delicious and fantastic service - always a treat to eat here.

Two of Bar La Grassa's pasta offerings are as wonderful as any pasta I have ever had (and, I've been a pasta fanatic for over 65 years!) They are the agnolotti with taleggio cheese, and the lobster pasta. Bar La Grassa offers full and half portions. We order half portions of each and share so we can enjoy both these... More

Fantastic atmosphere, with the blend industrial and artisan. The menu is even better, with reasonably priced entrées and drinks, and a creative lineup, top to bottom. The chefs are clean, calm, and can smile (even on a Friday night shift). The service was acceptable. We loved it – we are definitely putting this as one of our top spots in... More

Our waiter recommended the ribs and they were almost inedible because they were burnt, fatty, and way over salted.

If you want an experience with your meal, sit at the rail. You get to see and experience your food in a whole new way. We were able to sit without a reservation. The food doesn't disappoint. I had the Spaghetti Carbonara and it was worth every calorie.

This is the second visit I've made to BLG. This is a bustling downtown restaurant filled with the "beautiful" people of the twin cities. The menu is upscale Italian. We ordered: Prosciutto appetizer: okay Gnocchi: poor. Too heavy and bland sauce. Shellfish platter: good The service was far below standard for a restaurant of this price point. Our waitress seemed... More

I always look for an Italian restaurant that serves homemade pasta when I travel and I found this wonderful nugget. I really wanted a small plate which I could get but they have larger portions as well. The Nduja Egg Raviolo was just the right size, one large ravioli and they start you off with focaccia and a crusty bread... More
