“A New Favorite Restaurant of Mine !”
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We were visiting our son who wanted to take us to the 112 Eatery for a special dinner---I looked the place up online to study the menu for I always have a difficult time deciding on what to order at a new restaurant. I confess.......I didn't know what half the stuff was on the menu! ....foie gras meatballs... lardon salad.....gnocchi...I usually have a sense of adventure but I just couldn't get into the selection so I planned to order the "chicken"....something safe. When we got to the restaurant, the menu was a bit different from online......no chicken! OMG....I was prepared to go home hungry!!! Turns out the food was FANTASTIC......the blue cheese butternut squash, the broccolini with cheese, blue prawns with rooster mayo........what a superb culinary experience this was......looking forward to our next visit!

The Brie burger is a must to share along with the scallops & cauliflower fritters. Always a great experience!

“Damn that was good”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 via mobile

I think my title sums it up, but Trip Advisor insists I write more, so here it goes. The menu at 112 Eatery is very eclectic. I had Beet salad with Smoked Trout as an appetizer, followed up with tagliatelle with foie gras meatballs and a side of escarole with anchovy and nutmeg. Everything was fantastic. I haven't had escarole since I was a kid, and my mother never prepared it this good (sorry mom). Try it, you won't be disappointed. 112 also has a very interesting wine list, which is a distinct positive. Can't wait to come back to Minneapolis to eat here again.

“112 Eatery a Minneapolis staple”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Our old standby for great consistent food! Don't miss the burger (one of the best in the city as far as I'm concerned), gnocchi, and foie gras meatballs (if your into that). Always great food but busy place! If you don't have a reservation be prepared to wait.

“112 to celebrate my 100th.”
Reviewed October 18, 2013

I saved this restaurant to be my 100th review because I thought it was so special and I know I will never forget it. So I wanted to celebrate it somehow. This restaurant with a James Beard award winning chef was such a wonderful surprise. The menu was as imaginative as any I've ever seen. Items that I didn't think could possibly go together brilliantly do. I thought it might be a focus group for Top Chef and that the camera crew was going to jump out at us at any moment! We had a series of small dishes, each one as or more delicious than the last. The service was impeccable from the hostess to the wait staff. You cannot miss this eatery when you visit Minneapolis. I have a feeling they are booked solid very night so make sure you have a reservation. I really regret not living closer because I'd have to try everything on the menu.
