Really enjoyed dinner the other night, especially the salt-cured foie gras and shorthorn beef leg with mushrooms. Service was very welcoming and wine list was decent. Nothing to complain about so definitely a solid choice.

Our first experience here was terrific. Great "Nordic" food and the host and wait staff were all amazing and knowledgeable. Try a toast app and you can't go wrong with the duck confit.

Our cow's milk toast appetizer was DELICIOUS and very filling! We both... More

We hadn't made a booking so when 7 of us arrived for an impromptu dinner we were lucky enough to be seated at the bar. This was nice as we were able to mingle more in between courses but the food was no different. Great service from the guys at the bar, very happy to provide recommendations for both food... More

It been very difficult to get reservations for this restaurant since its opening. So I was looking forward to finally going there. But I was disappointed that it was rather ordinary. The menu was small with nothing exceptional. Although the food was OK, it was not special in any way. I did not notice anything on the menu that was... More

Innovative, welcoming and wonderful! Our server was the best - knowledgeable and helpful but unobtrusive. Expensive but worth it for a special dinner.

It was not bad, but overall pretty disappointing. If you're in MSP on a Friday find a fish fry instead.
