We were there 7 years ago, it was bad, now it is worse. Same old building, cracks, floors dirty and greasy, food served lukewarm, small portion for the price, service nasty. We wait for lemon wedges and water that never came. Cappuccino, what cappuccino?, no...More

We had reservations for Friday night and requested seating on the deck which was a very nice area. We specifically came here since they claimed they offered a gluten free menu and one guest gets severe migraines from gluten. When we arrived, we were informed...More

Our food and service were terrific, just don't bring the kids. Neither liked their food. Reality: it was delicious - kid's mac and cheese & pasta with red sauce. Just too savory fire a child's palate. And these kids are not picky eaters, just kids....More

I love Muffuletta's and always want it to be 5 Stars. Last night it really stumbled. The locals often bring children, babies and poor parenting skills but I expected as much. Try a later dinner reservation 730, 800 or later to avoid the romper room...More

Muffuletta Cafe keeps going downhill in service and atmosphere and food also which includes limp salads and too much salt. The location is convenient, but we are always disappointed when we go now.

Atmosphere was fine, waiter was great and food was good. But given it was the 4th of July and neighborhood parade begins at 11am (and has for decades) you would think they could plan ahead and open 5 minutes early to seat guests. Manager had...More

We were in St. Paul visiting family and we all decided to go out to Muffuletta for dinner. A few years ago they hosted my brother's 60th birthday party and everything was excellent. It was a beautiful evening and we were able to dine outside...More

"Chef Matt Ellison ... showcasing some of the best local farmers and letting their beautiful Midwestern products make his contemporary cooking arguments for him." Dara Moskowitz Grumdahl - The daily-printed menu, filled with irresistible flavors and tempting aromas, is truly a feast for the senses. The wine menu is hand- picked by the Sommelier and also changes to reflect the seasonal and ethnic influences of the cuisine. - Jeremy Iggers of the Minneapolis Star Tribune describes the restaurant as "a candle-lit chef-driven bistro with an imaginative globe-trotting menu."
