“Good service, good food”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

Good. Service was very good when we went. A good meal in a simple, not too fancy place.

Menu selection was a little slim, from a simple midwest perspective - I was hoping for a few more cuts of beef to choose from.

Menu leaned a bit more toward fish, pork, lamb... All good choices and well prepared, The pork chop my wife had looked fantastic.

About $45/person including a drink and tax.

Overall a good Friday night dinner.

“Great service”

I made reservations online. Our table was ready when we arrived. Our waiter was a true professional. The food arrived at the table hot. I would definitely return.

“Food was good but service wasn't the best”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

Came here for dinner with a few colleagues as we wanted a local place that was well reviewed. They are located in a RadissonHotel right across from the Marriott in Minneapolis. Overall the place was good, the venue was more of a bar type feel than a white table cloth type restaurant.....so better for casual dining which we were looking for. We ordered a few salads, which were all really good, could have used a bit more dressing but they can always bring that. The Mushroom soup was excellent, and the flat bread pizza was very good as well, a little well done but good. The service was an issue here, our waitress looked busy, maybe they were understaffed that night or not expecting the crowd that came in but by no means was it busy inside. Forgot to bring out one of the meals and then asked if there was anything else she can get us and we said the salad and she made it sound like she didn't forget but she clearly did because it took at least 5 minutes to get the salad and I guess it was rushed. Didn't really come by and ask how things were if she did she would have noticed we had a few empty glasses. Such a shame as the food was good and here they are with the ability to control the service piece of it and they can't do it. If the service was thee this would easily be a 4, possibly even a 5.

“Very good, consistent food.”
Reviewed March 26, 2014

I've never been disappointed. Also, they offer duck confit most of the time and that always makes be happy. Their roasted chicken and wild rice/mushroom soup is very good. Very nice.
