“Best Service Staff Around”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I love it here. This is my go to place when I want to get out and escape the young college loud beer slammers. I celebrate my birthday here often.

“Sea Bass is the best thing on the menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013

I've been to Lurcat at least a half dozen times and its never disappointed.

The miso sea bass is the signature dish and never fails to delight. Atmosphere is great although it is loud. If you seek a quiet dinner this may not be the place for you.

“Best Place in MPLS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Food is amazing. The sea bass and egg fried rice should not be missed. Large enough to bring a group for drinks as well.

“always superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

The food is always excellent - the sea bass and the apple/manchego salad are always stellar and fresh and light tasting. Service is professional without being stuffy. Great restaurant for business, special occasions, or a romantic dinner.

“Overpriced and snobbish”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

There used to be a really good bohemina-like place in Cafe Lurcat's location many years ago. That place is gone but Lurcat is nothing likethat. Rather, it is very expensive and it tends to cater the wealthy clientele so forget about it.
