I found this place on my own trying to find a nice place for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend...
Downsides: Was not as lively as I'd wished (but it was Sunday night after the Vikings loss to the Browns, so no points lost there). I wish I'd known that the kitchen was going to lock up all the baked desserts beforehand so I could get the dessert I really wanted. Our reservation was noted that it was my birthday, but restaurant did nothing special and no one said Happy Birthday until our server carded me for the wine.
Upsides!: Food was delicious! My boyfriend and I love going out to try new places and if they have steak, even better! The food was prepared and presented wonderfully, and cooked full of flavor. We will definitely come back to St. Paul just for Downtowner. Very romantic ambiance, which is exactly what anyone wants for their special dinner. Good friendly service. Great location to river for a nice quiet after dinner walk.
