We have travelled throughout the world and have enjoyed many restaurants of medium and high regard. Cafe Lurcat in Minneapolis (and in Naples Fl) is a great place. One of our favorites. The ambiance is great and the sea bass is the best you will ever have. The only big issue is their by the glass wine list. My wife... More

Café Lurcat is located across from a park which overlooks the Mississippi River in Minneapolis. It is pricey. The menu is a la carte, but worth every penny. My husband and I ordered steak and sea bass to share for our own "surf and turf." The steak is so tender I could cut it with a butter knife and flavorful.... More

I visited Lurcat twice already - for their Sunday Dinner Date menu. 50 USD for a couple: wine and three menu. The menu changes and we likes the option on each visit. I will surely return!

Most items on the menu, including french fries, are made gluten free. They have a separate menu for "gluten sensitive," but it included most things from the regular menu. We did Sunday night date night--3 courses for $50 and everything was SO DELICIOUS.

Dined at Lurcat for my birthday celebration with my daughter, and it was even better than I anticipated! We went on a Sunday night (date night at Lurcat) and LOVED the options. Service was PHENOMENAL; food was fresh and beyond delicious, presented creatively and appealingly, and absolutely perfectly prepared; and the ambiance was relaxing and elegant outside in a cozy,...

This is a great place to sit at the bar, patio or in the restaurant. Great ambiance and service. The menu has a nice variety. The Bacon-wrapped Pork Tenderloin and deserts were incredible!!

We were there for a wedding along with perhaps 100 guests. We had the outside area between the ceremony and dinner with catered finger food and an open bar. The dinner was absolutely terrific; the best Chilean Sea Bass(Toothfish) that I've ever had. Thick, juicy, and tasty! The asparagus was also very thick, sweet and tenderized and the cauliflower was... More
