It took someone a while to seat the three of us, but the ambiance here is nice (for being in an office building). There were only two servers working at lunch so things took a bit longer than they may otherwise have but we were...not in a hurry. I ordered the walleye po boy with fries and it was good! I don't usually order fried fish much at restaurants but this was good. There could have been a little less seasoning on the fries as they seem to sprinkle seasoning on everything. I would definitely give it another try (this was my first time there). I've heard that you should definitely make reservations at night though so I would recommend that!More

What a fabulous place! The waitress was knowledgeable and friendly. The live music added to the sophisticated atmosphere. Our food was delicious from the appetizers to the dessert. We will return!

When we finished our meal I told one of our servers”superb job” and I meant it. They went above and beyond to give the 11 of us, including 5 kids ages 8 to 1, a memorable dining experience. Very attentive and accommodating. And the food...was fantastic. Thank you!!!More

We came on a Wednesday night. Called ahead to check about seating. The hostess told us they were very busy but she had one table that had just opened up. We hurried but had 9 people in line in front of us. Some left rather...than wait. When we got to the front, We expected they would have no seating. But the hostess had saved the table for us! I had the scallops with ham crepes. Delicious! My husband enjoyed the max burger and we both were gobbled up the roasted sweet potatoes! The location was beautiful beside the river and the arch.More

The food was delicious and the live music was amazing. Piano player who could sing and play trombone all at the same time. Not to be missed! We shared the chef's special steak - good meat perfectly cooked.

I have dined all over Europe and North-America and this is not a "chef" restaurant. Menu is cookie-cutter and too simplistic. Food was cooked ok-ish, but completely lacked flavor and any chef-worthy complexity. Vegetables were a joke, more like poorly cooked garnish. Still not sure...what it actually was. My husband's steak sat on a soggy patty of risotto, or at least we think it was risotto. Appetizer took forever and was bland. Actually, part of it was overly sweet and I still wonder where the goat cheese was hiding. My drink took forever and was missing part of the ingredients. So, over all, nothing that went terribly wrong, but absolutely not "chef" quality. Not even as good as other restaurants. Great view, though.More

We were in downtown Sioux Falls for just a few hours, and after touring the Falls Park, we were hungry. As luck would have it, we parked very close to this place and so decided to eat lunch here.... a real win for us, because...lunch was outstanding. Tommy had the San Francisco Special (egg scramble with ground beef, sausage, mushrooms, spinache and parmesan) served with Roasted Sweet Potatoes. The Egg bake was a bit too salty for him, but the sweet potatoes were great, with a hint of rosemary. I had the Turkey and Avocado Club (turkey, avacado, garlic aioli, Swiss cheese, applewood smoked B, L & T on a wonderful whole wheat toast. The sandwich was awesome, full of flavor, and huge. The toast was great as well. And it came with an excellent side salad. It was a lot to eat, but I finished it, it was excellent.More

There is a very nice ambiance about the place, classic with a modern twist. The menu is not too large, but our food was great as well as the service and drinks to choose from. It was a great birthday dinner. I would recommend reservations.

Ode offered a unique yet relaxing dining experience. I had a solid meal for lunch, but thought the prices were a bit high for the amount of food received.
